Glenn Beck: Legislating the Redistribution of Wealth





Watch

Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

What's in the House and Senate health care bills that is not in the Constitution? The redistribution of wealth.

Barack Obama told us he was a believer in that concept during the campaign:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BARACK OBAMA: It's not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance at success too. And I think that when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

That didn't faze most Americans. They're looking for something much bigger, I guess.

According to CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf: "I concluded the talk by emphasizing that fiscal policy is on an unsustainable path to an extent that cannot be solved by minor tinkering."

None of these people advising the president or writing these bills in Congress, are advocating small changes. We're talking about massive, sweeping changes.

Americans showed up by the hundreds of thousands at the various tea parties to demand that Congress stop their out of control spending and debt. But look at these bills — 2,000 pages? They are fundamentally transforming America in these pages. They are not interested in minor tinkering — these are massive changes to our way of life.

The Senate plans to pass this mess before Christmas. The time is now to stand up or the decision will be made for you.

I know you don't want to believe any of this – neither do I. But we've shown you who the president has surrounded himself with. These are not free-market system lovers who just want to increase America's prosperity.

We showed America the admiration that White House Communications Director Anita Dunn has for China's brutal communist dictator — Chairman Mao – one of the two people she said she turned to most:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

ANITA DUNN, INTERIM WHITE HOUSE COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR: Mao Tse Tung and Mother Teresa, not often coupled with each other, but the two people that I turn to the most.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The response from other media outlets? Nothing. In fact, they just keep reporting her continued attacks on Fox News – which she renewed over the weekend, even as she heads out the door.

Then there's manufacturing "czar" Ron Bloom:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

RON BLOOM, MANUFACTURING "CZAR": We know that the free market is nonsense.

We kind of agree with Mao, that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We've told you that Internet "czar" Susan Crawford was a member of an international socialist group and of course is a huge advocate of the so-called "Net neutrality" movement – a movement spearheaded by the Marxist "Free Press" organization.

There's the lovely and talented FCC diversity "czar" Mark Lloyd – not a fan of free speech, but a huge fan of the socialist/Marxist revolution in Venezuela:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MARK LLOYD, FCC DIVERSITY "CZAR": In Venezuela, with Chavez, really an incredible revolution — a Democratic revolution.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We can't forget science and technology "czar" John Holdren, who also spoke of wealth redistribution:

(BEGIN AUIDO CLIP)

JOHN HOLDREN, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY "CZAR": The rate of growth of material consumption is going to have to come down, and there's going to have to be a degree of redistribution of how much we consume, in terms of energy and material resources, in order to leave room for people who are poor to become more prosperous.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

So, it's not just redistributing the wealth of America's wealthiest to America's poorest. Holdren is suggesting global redistribution of America's wealth. We take the wealth of our nation and send it to Third World countries.

Now you're not just talking about confiscating a few bucks from Bill Gates and Warren Buffet to give to some lazy slob that refuses to get off the couch and get a job. Now you're talking about spreading America's wealth to nations that don't have any wealth at all — and that affects all of us.

And science "czar" John Holdren isn't the only one talking about it. Andy Stern, head of SEIU and the top guest at Obama's White House, is a huge fan of spreading America's wealth and reciting communist slogans. Here's what Stern, who practically lives at the White House, believes:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

ANDY STERN, SEIU PRESIDENT: Our workers can have a chance to share in prosperity.

So the question is, how is everyone going to share in the wealth?

Workers of the world unite, it's not just a slogan anymore, it's the way we're gonna have to do our work.

I got in trouble for saying this with Glenn Beck but, I said workers of the world unite is not just a slogan anymore it's a way we're gonna have to do our work.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

Andy Stern, who has visited Obama at the White House 22 times that we know of, presumably to advise the President on important issues — including health care — has repeated over and over his conviction that there must be wealth redistribution.

Not only that, but we have startling new audio from him, that we've been working with Breitbart TV to bring to you next week.

One of the things Andy Stern has said is that he knows there are "undocumented workers" who are members of his union. He knows they have illegal aliens at SEIU, not only from Latin America, but from all over the world.

He knows he's breaking the law.

What do you think is going on here? Stern is already driving down wages to bring us in line with the rest of the world and he's already increasing his membership around the world.

He is working on adding millions of members to his union rolls and he couldn't care less about where they come from, how they got here, what their motives and goals are or how it helps or hurts America.

Workers of the world unite!

Andy Stern is in this for Andy Stern.

Let's look at this logically. What was the problem at GM? Was it the product? No, GM builds great cars. The problem was that their really bad management entered in labor union agreements they couldn't afford. They were paying hundreds of thousands of people who no longer worked for them. It got to the point where it was so expensive to build their cars that they couldn't make it work anymore. They had to outsource their jobs.

And now, they're saying we should globalize? We need to spread our wealth around?

There are 3 billion people on Earth make less than $2.50 a day. So let me ask you a simple question: Which is more likely: That we'll be able to bring the rest of the world up to our standard, going from 75 cents a day to making over $300 a day? Or, is it more likely that the one really expensive country with the very high standard of living, will have to be brought down, to be more in line with everyone else?

You know the answer!

You might be thinking, OK, maybe Andy Stern has some ulterior motives and sure, he has shown up at the White House more than anyone else on Earth – still, that doesn't mean he and President Obama are on the same page, necessarily.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: I've spent my entire adult life working with SEIU. I'm not a newcomer to this.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Hmm. They do seem to be on the same page. And it does seem like Obama is trying to overwhelm the system right now with massive new government takeover programs — look at these bills.

Health care and the stimulus — and cap-and-trade bill is coming soon. On top of all of that, he's also saying that he's getting ready to try to jam amnesty down our throats again — right in line with what Andy Stern is saying.

Why, in the middle of the heated health care reform debate — and the cap-and-trade bill — would you also try for immigration, too? That's nuts!

Or is there a method to their madness? Could they be looking at the 20 million illegal aliens, who would suddenly be made U.S. citizens, as new American taxpayers who could then help foot the bill for all the rest of their plans? It would drive down wages and drive up tax revenues with tens of millions of new tax filers?

Look, Obama is insisting on all of this at once – his entire transformation of America package, all within the first year of his administration. Everything must happen right now or we're doomed. At the same time, he can't even make a decision on what to do for our troops in Afghanistan, even with a request from his general on the ground for more troops, sitting on his desk since August.

What we're talking about is the end of our way of life. They want to control you. That's not some wild conspiracy tale — they already control the banks, the auto industry, most mortgages in this country. They will have to ability to control the temperature inside your home with the passage of the cap-and-trade bill. And now they're trying to take control of one sixth of the U.S. economy — health care. They're talking about taking over the Internet in the name of "neutrality" — who asked them to? Where's the problem there?

They are moving at the speed of light. We need to get up off of our couches and get into their offices. Call your senators; show up in their office — peacefully and politely, but get there!

If we don't stop this now, Obama will succeed in his goal to "fundamentally transform" America.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
