Is the White House using energy to collapse the system?

Is the White House using energy to collapse the system? That's the question that Glenn raised on radio today when reviewing some of the idiotic comments made by Energy Secretary Steven Chu. This is a guy who said that gas prices in the United States should be closer to the prices in Europe, and he has championed the development of green energy over exploring domestic oil.

Not long ago, Chu said he gave himself an "A-" when it came to his job performance. Then the other day, he was confronted in a hearing by House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa who asked him if that grade still applied when it came to gas prices.

"Well, the tools we have at our disposal are limited but I would say I would give myself a little higher in that since I became secretary of energy, I've been doing everything I can to get long‑term solutions," Chu told him.

As Glenn put it, that's like saying you do well at basketball because you are working to develop a new type of ball that isn't ready yet and may never work, but if it does it will automatically go from your hand to the net. Meanwhile, you are destroying all the regular basketballs. Ok, Glenn isn't that great at sports analogies - but essentially he's saying Chu is focused on developing future green energy (which may never come) rather than find ways to make energy prices lower now. In fact, he is only making things worse. hoe does he deserve an "A-"?

Make sense?

Glenn also noted that he is asking for more "tools", a comment that will get overlooked with inflated, self-congratulatory grade Chu gave himself.

"He wants more tools. So when it gets worse and worse and worse, he's going to be pushing for more tools. Look, I can help control the cost of gasoline. You just have to give me the tools to do it. You need price controls, I need rationing, I need whatever it is I need, but I need more tools to be able to effect that," Glenn explained.

Wow, that sounds scary.

Couple that with Obama's comments about how we "can't drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees at all times whether we're living in a desert or we're living in the tundra".

As Pat put it, the administration is trying to change our behavior and will nudge and push and eventually force us to do so.

"You change America. You change it by the behavior but you also are ‑‑ you're radically changing everything we've ever believed. You're changing us on what we can accomplish. If they get gasoline to be $5 and $6 a gallon, first of all, any time, any time you've had a spike in oil prices and a spike in gasoline, you have a recession or a depression because the market is not ‑ how are we built as a nation? How were we built? We were built with cheap energy. The reason why we could do things that others couldn't is because we always had cheap energy. So the entire system is built around that. So once you have $5, $6 a gallon gasoline, the system no longer works. This is a 'collapse the system' strategy. It's Cloward and Piven through energy, period," Glenn said.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
