Time for ANSWERS on US money to Ukraine, alleged corruption

President Biden — and those in his cabinet — have Ukraine on the brain. In fact, far-left leaders have been ‘obsessed’ with Ukraine since the Obama years, Glenn explains. But back in 2014, Ukraine was considered to be a corrupt nation that needed our help rooting out the deceit (at least, that’s what they told us). But now, Congress continues to funnel hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars to Ukraine, with practically no oversight to how it’s being spent. Why are we writing them what seems to be a blank check? Is Ukraine still corrupt? Is President Zelenksyy an honest leader? It’s time for ANSWERS. In this clip, Glenn discusses all those questions, plus he’s joined by Rep. Spartz — who is from Ukraine — to give her thoughts as well…

GLENN: Biden and the people surrounding him in his cabinet, have Ukraine on the brain. Since at least Obama's second term. They're obsessed with Ukraine. I think Ukraine is a giant cash cow for those who are corrupt. Back in 2014, Ukraine was in need of some good old-fashioned United States savings. And Ukrainians were rebelling against the Russians. The Russian-aligned government, all on their own. But Obama and Biden were experiencing a major case of fear of missing out. So they just had to get involved. And so we did. And it drew everyone in the U.S. State Department, national security apparatus, and even George Soros to Ukraine. You see, back then, Ukraine was considered corrupt. Their leers, corrupt. The oligarchs, corrupt. Ultra, mega corrupt. So naturally Joe Biden's son jumps right into bed with them. And the media and political elite find no issues with this whatsoever. Sure, it's a corrupt country. I mean, Obama and Biden's stated goal was to root that corruption out, between the government and the oligarchs. But the vice president's son, going to work for Burisma was just fine. Nothing to see here. For over a decade, the story from western governments, has been that Ukraine is a corrupt government. And we can save them. But up until February 2022, it hadn't been resolved yet. Now, speaking about not being resolved. Did we ever hear. The $1.8 billion, that went missing in the bowels of PrivatBank? That was our money, by the way. Our tax dollars. Did anybody in the mainstream media, nail that down? Did Congress? I ask this question, because congress has now greenlit $54 billion in taxpayer funding to Ukraine, to fight out the Russians -- and what was it? 8 billion already was sent. And then on Friday, they announced another 270 million. Let's just put it into perspective. That's a lot of money! Where is it all going? Why are we writing them a blank check? Can we at least get a final verdict on whether the Ukrainian government is corrupt. I think I speak for the majority of the country, when I say the Biden administration's signals are a little bit mixed up here. We're a bit confused. Wasn't corruption the main focus of our health back in 2014. Isn't that why George Soros swooped in, and now everything's okay? They couldn't keep track of 1.8 billion, and we give them 60 billion? Let me ask you this: I find it interesting, that president Zelinsky recently revoked the citizenship of the Ukrainian oligarch, Kolomoisky. When Biden was VP, Kolomoisky was the principal holder of both Burisma, which his son worked for, and PrivatBank. The one that lost the 1.8 billion. Now, he had previously been on a U.S. Visa ban, over his involvement with the hired thugs, that actually used chainsaws to behead people. But Biden made sure he had his Visa ban lifted so he could come to the United States. And it gets more interesting. As if this is the time that both Biden and John Kerry were lobbying for a 1.8 billion aid package to Ukraine. That aid money went to Kolomoisky's PrivatBank, and then disappeared. Allegedly, it was channeled into a money laundering scheme, through a bank in Cypress. And then went to various shell companies. Now he's also the governor of eastern Ukraine. Funding a near private war, between Ukrainian militias and Russia's. Now, whether he's doing that with his money or someone else's, is unknown. Oh, by the way, Kolomoisky, his money is the big reason why Zelinsky got elected. But now that Biden is in office, Zelinsky has revoked the citizenship of his previous friend. Is there any chance that we will find out later, that Joe Biden lobbied for this to happen? If anyone has the receipts on Burisma, PrivatBank, the missing 1.8 billion, and what's going on with this private war between Ukraine and Russia. Kolomoisky would have them. And it's really weird, that now, his citizenship of Ukraine, has been revoked. We want to talk to congresswoman Victoria sparks. She's from Indiana. Hello, congresswoman, how are you?

VICTORIA: Good, how are you?

GLENN: Good. Now, you're from Ukraine. You became a citizen in the year 2000. And you're concerned -- you're concerned about the money we're sending over there.

VICTORIA: Well, let me tell you, and I appreciate actually, became a citizen in 2006. It took me six years, because it's not as fast when you come here illegally. So I came here in 2000. But it takes you a while to become a citizen. But let me tell you. And I might have a little bit different perspective. But I want to separate Ukrainian government from Ukrainian people, and actually army, and die in the trenches. You know, they've been trying to restore freedoms in that country. And fought -- had two revolutions. And they fight this war. And really, want to have freedom. So when I go there and talk to the people. When I talk to the young boys dying on the front lines. You know, it breaks my heart to see how we're mismanaging the situation. And allow them to die, without proper oversight of the government. Because I think it's important for the country like that, to hold governments accountable. And we have to differentiate that. We have very -- Americans. Our government, with much to be desired. So it's not only representation unfortunately for the people. But I think for me to see that. And actually at what Biden is doing. It seems to me, and the money you mentioned, don't go directly to Ukraine. Because there are a lot of things around that. But how he's doing in health -- how he's not overseeing it. It's actually, he's mismanaging Ukraine. And it's either his incompetency on purpose, to allow Russia to advance significantly. It was really concerning for me, when I went to Ukraine, to see, you know, how much power and the people around Zelinsky were able to consolidate his power grab. You know, and we're talking about Kolomoisky and these oligarchs. But if you know the part of that. They actually took citizenship. Not due process or executive order had stolen the border. Someone who is actually in charge of territorial defense of a major city. You know, right in Eastern Ukraine. And the person had nothing to do. He was just lucky enough to meet for half an hour with me. They almost detained from Ukrainian parliament to try to leave the country to believe to the US. Because they weren't going to meet with the U.S. legislature. So this amount of power, and abuse of power, in concentration, it's very dangerous for the country. A country which doesn't have check and balances. Where a judicial prosecutorial branch is controlled by presidents and people around him. A lot of Russian infiltration. A lot of different problems.

So I think this is a valid concern. And a question now, decided to witch hunt, against some Ukrainians that had nothing to do, you know, innocents, because the issues I was bringing up, they actually were brought up by our military people during my (inaudible), and they were brought up by some U.S. companies doing business in Europe, and actually doing business in defense industry. And they have some concern. And it's interesting. Because there's some issues that I didn't want to bring up. Because I know it was reported to the FBI. But it was brought up recently. You know, in Ukrainian newspapers, where this guy, his remakers as I mentioned, his father. At a point, the minister of defense. You know, created a monopoly. Had corporations with Iran and Afghanistan. You know, and sabotaged some of the purchase of the weapons. And had a very interesting connection to Russia, and imported.

So I think it's very dangerous for us, not to deal with properly managed situations. Because if we turn to Ukraine, and not Afghanistan, it's very dangerous for our national security too. Because Ukraine has a lot of critical resources. It's not a small country. And it's -- and it could be dangerous for all of us. And it's been escalating, and I think that's by this administration.

GLENN: All right. So, congresswoman, I'm not sure if we're on the same page. I really like the people of Ukraine. I have a soft spot for what they've done in the past, on fighting Russia. I feel horrible about the people who have lost their lives, and the women and children. And, you know, we have a team over there, that is rescuing children. And trying to get them safe -- to safety, and not be trafficked. But I -- I just -- I just think this is a convenient little war. I -- I -- why, for instance, did Zelinsky get rid of Kolomoisky. Why did he revoke his citizenship? I mean, it just seems convenient, if you were looking to make sure that -- that nobody -- nobody was around to tell about the dirty things that you were doing. Why is it that president Zelinsky was against gay marriage, because he -- you know, it's a different country, with different standards. He was against it, and yet, during the war now, they pass a law to -- for gay marriage. And that seems to me, like American pressure, being exerted at the worst possible time. Because we gave them money.

VICTORIA: Well, not that. But I wish American pressure would be exerted in a way how they can improve the logistics. How they can improve oversight. And ensure that they can be accountable to American people, instead of blame politics and blame the agenda, that is unfortunately, very radical in this country. And I think they blame politics, instead of the managing processes and governments. Governments like Ukraine and governments like Afghanistan. They have to be forced to provide transparency to our people. If you don't, you will have another Afghanistan. But unfortunately, they haven't been doing that. But doing other things, that are very not productive for them to fight and win that war. And I think this is our responsibility of Congress, to put pressure. You know, just because, this is going to be a major problem for us, if we don't de-escalate situations. But also, we have accountability to our people. And to Ukrainian people. They're dying there.

GLENN: So -- is Zelinsky a good guy or a bad guy? Or is the answer to that yes.

VICTORIA: I think we know -- they have to -- I don't look at people as good or bad. I actually have a very low, in regards to all politicians in general. It's not about that. Every president should have accountability. Every president should be watched. But the amount of power right now, Ukrainian government is accumulating. And power grab, and abuse of power, where they actually decide, who can enter the border. Who can exit with proper due process. In using the war to consolidate media and control prosecutorial judicial -- it's very dangerous. And, you know, he needs to be responsible. That he put people, and his chief of staff, is becoming a dictator in that country. The president Zelinsky needs to take responsibility. And explain what's happening there. I know he's busy doing external things. And dealing with his leers in Europe and here. But he's still our president. And he needs to be responsible. And tell us what happened and why, this amount of abuse -- that's not what Ukrainian people are fighting for. To have another dictator. That's not what they want. And I think that's very not productive.

GLENN: I really appreciate it. This is Congresswoman Victoria Spartz, and she has been very outspoken. And because of it, she's gotten heat from the left and the right. But intellectual debate is necessary, to be able to be a free country. And I appreciate you speaking out. Thank you so much.

VICTORIA: Thank you so much. It's never easy to do the right thing, but it's worth it.

GLENN: Yes, it is. God bless you.

Glenn reacts to FBI raid of Trump home: A ‘MASSIVE MOVE'

If you are NOT for the destruction of America, Glenn says, then you better pay attention to our federal government’s HUGE accumulation of power. The FBI raid on Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago late Monday was a ‘MASSIVE MOVE,’ with implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what IS the far-left’s endgame? What are they hoping to accomplish, and will they stop at NOTHING to destroy President Trump? In this clip, Glenn reacts to the FBI raid and gives his thoughts on those questions plus more…

GLENN: Does anybody have any credibility anymore? If you actually -- if you were actually celebrating, what is happening with Donald Trump, you have no idea how much this changes things. If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move. And who has credibility on it? Nobody is going to believe Donald Trump. But nobody the left. So you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? You think we're going to believe the New York Times? The people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And I'm not talking about the stupid death list. I'm talking about a server, and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room. It's completely sealed off. Going in, getting documents. Cutting off top secret. And then emailing them to her, on her private server. And nothing?

And now you're going to try to convince me. This has nothing to do with January 6th. Okay. What does TV to do with? Well, it's a national archives thing. He has papers that should be in the History Department. Excuse me. What?

He has top secret papers. We have pictures. Coincidentally, they came out yesterday, right around the time of the raid, you know, of him flushing stuff down the toilet. We don't know what it was. But somebody who was nameless, took pictures of his toilets when he was traveling. And, you know, he was smart enough to rip him off, so we don't know what they said. But do -- (cut out).

We had somebody with him with a camera on their phone. And they went in right after him, hey, light a match Mr. President, click. Good thing for us, huh? That's ridiculous!

The bank servers, he's pinging a bank. Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy. Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy. Does he look like a Russian spy? Untrue. Collusion with Russia. Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call. Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier. None of that was true. Here's why they can't have him as president of the United States, okay?

They can't have him as president of the United States, because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional great reset. And all of the West is involved in it. And New York Times, don't call me a conspiracy theory, because you just wrote a story about me and people like me trying to stop ESG, which you said didn't exist. So you have no credibility.

This is not just about their hatred for Donald Trump. This is about the elites. Now, I've got to tell you, I don't -- I don't like the Secret Service. And I've said this since Bush was in office. I think there's a problem in the Secret Service. I think it's poorly run. I'm a guy who has paid about a million dollars for my family's security every year for the last 15 years. Oh, Glenn Beck must be rolling in the dough. No, not after the security costs. I would rather have my family safe, than any service in the Secret Service because they rely on money. That's it. They'll solve it with money. We'll just get more guys.

Donald Trump should hire his own security. Donald Trump should hire his own security. Because I'm sorry, whether it's through stupidity, or it's part of the government. I don't know. If you're on the Secret Service detail of Donald Trump, God bless you. I watched you guys at CPAC. I watched you more than I watched anything else. I saw your eyes. I watched you. And there are those on his team, that whether you like him or not, are doing your job. And I thank you for that. But if they can't get this guy by hook or by crook, to go in, and be a part of the new jail system. For political opponents, they will kill him.

They cannot have him be president. Because he is America first. Not only that, you do this to this guy, oh, gee. You've gone after my family, you've gone after me. You lied about me. I have the evidence. All I have to do is bring it out. Because it's all on videotape on some dumb son's phone. Do you really think a new Justice Department, that's not even political, but just clear, that hold nothing back, Hillary Clinton and her Clinton Initiative, do you think the Clinton Initiative, that there's no impropriety going on there? Do you really think that Adam Schiff, who's lied -- there's nothing there? Nothing for Hunter? Nothing for Joe Biden, you know, in China. Nothing. No, there's nothing there. BlackRock, the collusion with the banks. Everything that they're doing now, right now, you don't think that a Justice Department, that is hell-bent on cleaning and settling scores could settle scores pretty damn quickly? I hope we don't get there. Because this has to be about reasoned justice. But look at what they've just caused. What is their endgame? What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr? By throwing him into jail or killing him? You make him a martyr. So you make him stronger. That doesn't make sense. Why would you want that? Well, we just want him out of the -- you think Ron DeSantis isn't going to be the immediate front runner, and that Ron DeSantis would be easier to beat in your book? Are you that stupid? Wait. You take out Donald Trump, and then the heir apparent, Ron DeSantis runs, and for some reason, you think that all the Trump supporters wouldn't go, yeah. Hmm. What is your endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is stop him at any cost. And lunatics will take to the streets, and then we'll have our evidence that they're more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country. I would -- I would love -- I don't expect to hear from any. But I would love to hear from a Democrat today. Alan Dershowitz has the balls to come on. Wait 'til you hear what he has to say. Is there a single Democrat within the sound of my voice, single one, that doesn't -- that sees this?

Where are the FBI agents? Where are the freaking FBI agents, who don't see what's coming? Stu, look up the things. Eighty-seven thousand IRS agents, coupled with what they already have. That's about 170. That's almost the size of our National Guard. You feel comfortable with that, Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility -- not this guy, because he's so perfect. He's made your life so good. I mean, everything he's done is sunshine and lollipops. Do you really think that there's no possibility, that someone, even Donald Trump might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS? Is there anybody -- is there a single Democrat, call me, I would love to hear from you. 888-727-BECK. Is there one -- because, look, I voted for the guy, but this is too far. This is too much? Anybody, who says, if you would have done that to Hillary Clinton, I would have gone ape? Fascist. I see what you guys have been worried about -- 888-727-BECK

GLENN: I have Ron DeSantis on this week on Thursday, for the podcast.

STU: Hmm. That should be interesting. And I think he's the only out there, running in the right direction at the right speed. I think -- I think Florida is one of the only ones that may survive.

I mean, everybody else.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Even Texas, which is pretty good, is not nearly moving fast enough.

PAT: It doesn't feel like we're on the same trajectory as Florida right now. It seems like they're protecting their freedoms a lot more passionately than -- than we are in Texas.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: I mean, there's no doubt that Governor Abbott has made some missteps over the last couple of years.

GLENN: He doesn't suck though.

PAT: He doesn't suck. But people are pissed at him.

GLENN: Because they expect Ron DeSantis.

PAT: Yes.

STU: Nothing better for Governor Abbott, than to be potentially running against potential Governor O'Rourke though.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. I know. Seriously, I think Abbott would be a great governor, really in any other state.

STU: Right.

GLENN: But Texas is like, wait a minute. What. Wait.

STU: We don't like to be outdone.

GLENN: We don't like to be outdone. And if he were in any other state, we would count him as one of the best governors in the country. And he is. But if you live in Texas, it doesn't feel that way. And Texans, you better wake up. Because you really do want to go out and vote, otherwise, you get Beto.

PAT: Yeah. Uh-huh.

STU: It's interesting with DeSantis in particular. From a political standpoint, he's -- he's always in the middle of the right issues.

GLENN: With the right thing, taking the right stand.

STU: Right. And, usually, like at the right level too. He's not just saying -- you might -- it might be satisfying to conservative talk radio listeners, if you come out and you attack all these listeners. And you do all these things that are really, really hard-core. But he has a way of balancing, talking to his base. By doing things that are legal. That are sensible.

GLENN: That are going through the House and the Senate.

STU: That are going through the House and they Senate.

GLENN: He's passing laws. He's not just doing it executive fiat.

STU: It's not just big symbolic gestures. It's been a pretty interesting approach. I remember when he kind of emerged as one of the top candidates, as potential presidential nominee in in 2024. It was early. It was like early -- you know, early pandemic. He was one of the first governors to sort of open things up. And at least get a lot of attention for it. Even though, Kristi Noem pointed out, never closed down. But he's been able to maintain that. And continue building on it. Where a bunch of other governors from that era, were sort of the darlings of conservatives for a while and faded. He's been able to stay right there.

GLENN: Right. Because he continues. That's what I mean. He's on the right track, at the right speed. He's taking all of it on. It's like, I really appreciate the states that are taking on ESG. But when of them are taking on just the E. Well, that leaves the -- the people of your state at risk. It's the S and the G, as well. That are problems.

And DeSantis is doing these things. At the top of the hour, I'm going to tell you, what he did. Vanity Fair just came out with a hysterical article, about how authoritarian Rick DeSantis is.

STU: Can you imagine how bad Ron must be? If Rick is bad, imagine how Ron will be? You'll never get that name right.

Okay. It's not like you're President Ronald Trump. You have just DeSantis.

GLENN: I know. Just DeSantis. Just DeSantis. So, anyway, this is hysterical. He just put in a civics requirements. And wait until you hear the way Vanity Fair is talking about it.

I mean, 1619 Project will come to mind, several times. But it's crazy, because they are defending incorrect history. Their defense is, Thomas Jefferson was raping their slaves. Oh, if I hear that one more time.

PAT: Oh, jeez.

GLENN: That's not true. It was not true.

In fact, dig up that information we had on Thomas Jefferson a couple of weeks ago. Just so we can -- just so we can remind people at the top of the hour. But, you know, I -- I felt something, oh, probably. Probably about eight months ago. I felt the seasons change. And that was spiritual advice to me. Almost 15 years ago. And somebody said to me. Glenn, I said -- when am I going to know? And they said, watch the trees. When the seasons change, you will know.

And I -- I didn't know if I would know that. And I had a real feeling about eight months ago, seasons are changing. And we're in it deeper now. And getting closer to real problems.

This summer within the last eight or nine weeks, I felt them change again. And I think, I could be wrong. But I think that is this climate bill. I think this is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out.

The only other thing that I think they could do to make things -- to really polish us off. Is emergency orders. And if he goes for emergency orders, and declares a national emergency with the weather, we're going to be -- we're going to be cooked. But I was at CPAC. And I saw some of the candidates, that are coming up. And if we can get these candidates in, they're serious. They're serious candidates. I don't know about the ones around you. But the nation has a few people that are willing to go to Washington. Lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. And save the republic. And save the Constitution. What are you saving it from? People who are trying to destroy the Constitution. Read it.

How the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ targets FARMERS…and YOU.

The Senate passed a 740 BILLION DOLLAR package over the weekend, with Vice President Kamala Harris giving Democrats the last vote they needed. The bill is called the ‘Inflation Reduction Act of 2022,’ but Glenn explains why it likely will do the EXACT opposite. And not only could it hurt your wallet, but it may hurt your food, too. Glenn details parts of the bill that target American farmers and the farming industry, all in the name of climate change. The ramifications — many of which are already happening in Europe — could be HUGE: ‘This is really, very dangerous.’

GLENN: If we don't collapse the size of this government soon, it will become an oppressor. Yesterday -- or, over the weekend, the Senate passed the 740 billion-dollar climate or health care reconciliation package. Now, just remember, $700 billion was the size of the -- DARPA, Obama.

STU: Yeah. First Obama stimulus package.

GLENN: Stimulus. And we all had a cow, that it was 700 billion dollars. We thought that was outrageous. This is 740 billion, just on climate and, quote, health care.

But is it? Let me give you some -- let me give you some information on this. It passed, the bill includes $370 billion in green energy. Subsidies. Now, do you remember how well the green energy subsidies happened last time, when Obama was in? Aren't we just making money, hand over fist, with all of those great investments, that we had under Obama?

STU: I'm a billionaire, because of my investment in Solyndra. It's worked out so well.

GLENN: Is that because of inflation? Because I think that went out of business. Now, here's the key to this bill: $80 billion -- now, remember, 370. This is the biggest thing ever. This is -- this has got to be done. Because we're all going to do to die in a fiery flood. 370 billion, and 80 billion is for the IRS. Now, I want you to listen to what they say, and you'll read it over and over again. It's the Internal Revenue Service, for enforcement. Now, enforcement. Do we have that many greedy billionaires that just aren't paying their taxes. I would like to know.

Do we have that many billionaires that don't have enough money for really good attorneys, to read the law. That you're going to need 80,000 new IRS agents. That doesn't seem to compute at all, does it?

Now, by the way, they're saying that it's going to reduce inflation. It's not going to reduce inflation. If it does, and this is the honest-to-God truth, it may reduce inflation. Why?

Because it's going to hurt you so badly, that you won't be able to buy things. Remember, too much money chasing too far goods. So if you can't make the goods, you've got to reduce the money chasing it. That means, they've got to slow you down, at the store. And that is exactly what this bill will do. But because the government is going to be spending so much more money, I don't think it's going to reduce inflation at all. In fact, I think it's going to make inflation worse. But your -- your life is going to become much more tough. Now, I want to give you some more perspective on this. First of all, the American people. Just see how out of touch the American people -- the -- Washington is. Compared to the American people.

Just 12 percent of the new economist you.gov poll. Twelve percent of people think this will actually reduce inflation. The other time, three times as many, 6 percent. Believe it will actually increase inflation. Twenty-three percent believe they don't think the bill will move inflation either way.

And only 29 percent say, they are unsure. Now, this bill is climate and inflation reduction. You don't believe that it's actually going to reduce inflation. They don't ask if you think if it would actually help the green movement. And protect the earth. But they did ask this: Do you -- do you believe it will lower inflation? Average respondent? 51 percent, no. But do you support the bill?

31 percent said, they strongly or somewhat oppose the bill. The rest agreed with it. So who is confused here? You don't believe in it, but you support it.

Now, I'm not talking about you personally. But I'm talking about the American people. How is that possible?

That is because we still believe, that our government, somehow or another, there's still enough people believe that our government or your personal guy in Congress or in the Senate is doing the right thing.

I don't know how this is working. It -- well, I do. They didn't ask another question, in that poll. Do you actually know what's in it?

I can guarantee you, most people don't know what's in it. But let me give you a couple of things. And let's start with the big one.

The inflation reduction act, will give the IRS $80 billion, in additional funding. So you know, that's a 600 percent increase of their budget. 600 percent.

They will hire as many as 87,000 additional employees for enforcement. The increase would more than double the size of the IRS work. Which currently has 78,661 full-time staffers. So they have 78,000, they're adding an additional 87,000. To give you some perspective, the Pentagon. You know how many people work at the Pentagon? You know a huge building that goes on and on and on. Pentagon. World's largest military. The Pentagon houses 27,000 employees.

27,000!

We're talking over 160,000 IRS agents. The State Department employs 77,243. The FBI has 35,000 people. The customs and Border Patrol employs 19,536 Border Patrol agents. This will make the IRS bigger than all of those agencies, combined.

Now are you for this act? It's a little too late. But are you now for this act?

This is going to be staggering. And here's where it really will impact you. In the bill, in fact, I want to -- page -- page 529, of the Inflation Reduction Act. It will pay -- pay farmers to not farm. They want -- they want to restore the soil. So the measures will include plowing your soil less. Implementing climate-friendly crop rotation techniques. And planting cover crops, that do not yield any food.

There's 20 billion dollars available, September 30th now. To diminish the climate impact from farms. They are going to start paying farmers, not to farm. And then you'll be fine. They're also going to now, hmm. I would like to say encourage you. But what they're going to do to the farmers is tell them, exactly how they can farm. They're going to tell them now, just like they are over in Europe, where the farmers are going out of business and on the streets, protesting. They are now going to tell them, that they have to adopt more climate friendly provisions. They are going to regulate what you can feed your cow. They're going to -- they're going to also tell you what you can grow. How you grow it. What you can use as fertilizer. And the fertilizer that we're all used to. You know, the one that grows one-third more than the old fertilizer. You're not going to be able to use that. Now, we're entering a global food crisis.

Farmers all around the world are going in on this nonsense. It's not working. All around the world. And we've just implemented it, and we're hiring 87,000 new IRS agents, to make sure you comply.

Well, this doesn't have anything to do with the taxes. Oh, yeah. It does. Because you will be getting subsidies. Oh, yes. It does. Because you'll have an ESG score, if you're a farmer.

This is going to devastate our farms. Have you ever noticed, that whenever communists take over, the first thing they do, is kill usually everybody who disagrees with them.

They take out anybody who is ever successful at something. Look at the difference between GM and Elon Musk. Look at the difference between what he's building, and what all these other guys had been building. But all these other guys had been building. The guy is building a spaceship to Mars. The guy has transformed the automobile. And yet, he's on the outs. They're coming after him. I can guarantee you, some of those 87,000 IRS agents are just going to work on Elon Musk and his companies. So they first come after anybody who is a capitalist. Anybody who disagrees with them. Anyone who can do anything. They get rid of them, if they can't co-opt them. Then they go after the farmers. And then when there's a problem with the farmers, they then kill the farmers. Or take their land away. And say, you're not doing it right. Well, because farmers have farmed for generations. They know the things that they have to do. It's not like farmers don't know to rest their land. Or to change their crops. Of course, they know that.

They're farmers. Now we have eggheads coming in. And it happens every time communists take control. That's why people end up eating the zoo animals, and then their dogs.

This is really very dangerous. Oh, by the way, in Europe, they're already to the next phase. The first phase was saying, the climate has to be controlled. And we have to control it through the farmers. The farmers then start to collapse. The farmers then start to take to the streets. And say, this is insanity. Well, the next phase is because no one knows where their food comes from. Or how to grow it. The next phase is already happening. The anti-farm sentiment is growing now in Europe. You watch. The farmers are going to get a really bad name. And the farmers are going to be blamed for the food shortages. You watch. I guarantee it. It's already happening in Europe. So now people are taking to the streets, and saying, it's these farmers that are at fault. This story, repeats itself, over and over again, until human beings learn the lesson.

The question is, America: Will we learn the lesson this time?

It's amazing, because on some of these things, we're behind. We have the results from Europe. And we're still doing it.
