DWS criticizes Romney for Swiss bank account while having a Swiss bank account

Despite being called out by some of the most liberal publications in the country for proven lies, like Mitt Romney being a pioneer in outsourcing American jobs, the Obama campaign continues their attempt to smear Romney with ridiculous attacks. This time it’s for having bank accounts in other countries and not releasing more of his tax returns.

Here’s the latest from Debbie Wasserman Shultz:

“I would really like to see Mitt Romney release more than one year tax records because there's been disturbing reports recently that he's got a Bermuda corporation, that a secretive Bermuda corporation that no one knows anything about, investments in the Caymans, you know, investments in he's got a Swiss bank account. Americans need to ask themselves, why does an American businessman need a Swiss business account and secretive investments like that? It's just something, a thought that I'd like to leave folks with.”

“Since when is it bad to have a Swiss bank account – since when is it bad?” Glenn asked. “First of all, Debbie, Mitt Romney has released his tax returns for 2010, his estimated 2011 returns as well. He filed an extension. So he doesn't have the actual returns yet. That's two years’ worth of tax returns this time.”

Glenn went on to explain that Debbie Wasserman Schultz has refused all of the requests for transparency on her taxes. She never releases her tax returns, yet she continues to bash Mitt Romney for it, and the press doesn’t hold her responsible. He went on to point out that the reason she hasn’t released any of her taxes is because she doesn’t have to.

“There is no law that requires anybody to release their tax return but here we have the head of the DNC attacking and smearing Mitt Romney for something she herself absolutely refuses to do. To call these people hypocrites would be redundant and, quite honestly, it's fatiguing,” Glenn said. “So why even bother? I mean, to say that they're hypocrites and they're lunatics, to say that people who believe in what they're saying, you know, to really attack those people is really worthless. I mean, the people who believe that Debbie Wasserman Schultz has any credibility are probably fewer in number than those who believe we went to the moon.”

Glenn later pointed out another reason that it’s ridiculous to criticize him for having a Swiss bank account or any other type of foreign bank account, because regardless of where your money is kept you pay the same amount of taxes.

So, why would you have a Swiss bank account?

“I'll tell you why you have a Swiss bank account. Because when all the other banks collapse, the Swiss won't – that's why. Swiss have always protected the money,” Glenn said.

Glenn also took a few minutes to explain how the left always exposes themselves when they go on these attacks.

“The things they’re saying about Mitt Romney say more about them than it does about him or you or me,” Glenn said.

“And the truth always comes out in the end,” Stu added. “In this particular case on Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who has invested in the Julius Baer Group through the Davis Financial Fund. The Julius Baer Group from their website is the leading Swiss private banking group focusing exclusively on the demands of sophisticated private clients, family offices, and external asset managers around the world.”

Yes, that’s right – Debbie Wasserman Shultz, who is attack Mitt Romney about his Swiss bank account, has a Swiss bank account.

“They will destroy themselves. See, they always point to their own cancer. Whenever somebody says, "That's wrong, that's that," just follow the line of where they say something is bad and rotten, and I guarantee you that these people always point to their own cancer. It's really amazing. It's really truly amazing,” Glenn said. “Don't worry. They will destroy themselves. All we have to do is remain true to who we are, celebrate who we are, lift each other up. Be creative, be active, live it every step of the way. And get to the voting booth. And it's over.”

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
