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.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
