Wanting it both ways on climate change

Glenn has fallen victim to global warming this morning, leaving Pat to fill his shoes on radio today. And with the big news across the country being the massive snowstorms sweeping the country, Pat had something to say to everyone trying to blame the cold and snow on how hot the planet is getting.

“Global warming has shut down trains, shut down car traffic, created this ice and snowstorm for about 2,000 miles across the country, and it's all because it's so stinking warm!  Can we stop with the heat that's creating all this cold!  Wow,” Pat said.

“When I was your age, I had to walk to school, uphill both directions in four feet of snow over broken glass.  And by the time I got to school with no shoes, my feet were cut to shreds and they had hypothermia, and I liked it!  You don't know what it's like these days,” he joked about telling his kids.

Pat played audio from a reporter saying, “So far this winter New York City has gotten 56.1 inches.  We usually get about 22.  Look at Boston's gotten 60.3 inches.  Their average is almost 42.  Philly seeing almost 38 inches.  Their average is closer to 20.  What is going on? “

“What's really going on is that we are overloading the atmosphere with extra carbon which is trapping extra heat because we burn lots of coal and oil.  And so what this is doing is turbocharging weather patterns. So what we see is in the spring and the summer and in places where it rains, we're recording much heavier rainfall. And in the summer ‑‑ in the wintertime we are also recording much heavier storms. In other words, climate change creating a new normal,” an expert responded.

“I mean, even their experts believe that if we do all they say and spend all the money they want, it still won't affect the climate enough.  I mean, honestly the honest ones who really apparently believe this stuff say, that's too late anyway.  Despite all the evidence to the contrary,” Pat said.

“And yet it was our Democrat senators who, all through this century in the 2000s have been warning us that it was going to be global warming that was the death of snowfall.  Here are senators Byrd, whom we've lost, we lost him, Barbara Boxer, Amy Klobuchar, Dianne Feinstein, Jay Inslee, all on the Senate floor talking about global warming stopping our snowfall.”

Pat then played some of the audio from Democratic Senators saying that snow would gradually lessen or disappear.

“We need a climate change strategy and we need a climate change strategy badly.  Look at the kind of winter we've had.  Look at the kind of winter we've had in Washington.  One snow.  Three inches. There's a drought that has come upon this area of the country. What can we expect for the spring and summer season?  What's going to happen to our crops, our livestock, our economy?  This is serious.  I lived a long time, 84 years.  Something's going on out there.  I don't need a scientist to tell me that,” Senator Byrd said of the Winter of 2002.

“He also remarked that the most optimistic climate models for the second half of the century suggest that 30 to 70% of the snow pack will disappear.  Now, no wonder we have people visiting our offices who are just already hurting from the recreation industry in this nation.  They see what's happening.  They see the handwriting on the wall,” Barbara Boxer said.

“Isn't it great to have it both ways?  Is there anything better than winning your argument by having it both ways?  The lack of snow is global warming and the abundance of snow, also global warming.  And today we've got that global warming all over our heads for about 2,000 miles,” Pat joked.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
