Tens of thousands serve in Dallas for Restoring Love, media ignores

Glenn gave his first reaction to the events of last weekend on radio today and took particular exception with the coverage. Tens of thousands of people served, then even more filled Dallas Cowboys Stadium to proclaim their commitment to serving their fellow man - and the media doesn’t think it’s a story? About the only thing they bothered to cover were the Westboro idiots that were there.

In case you missed it, it was absolutely incredible.  Most incredible thing that we have ever been a part of," he said.

"CBS News is reporting 65,000 people show up at Dallas Cowboy stadium on Saturday.  Now, I just want to give this some perspective.  CBS News is the same organization that said 87,000 people showed up at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.  So 65,000 according to CBS News, 65,000 were at the stadium and only 87,000 were on the ‑‑ in the mall, that's ‑‑ well, here's the difference, I should point out:  All the people that showed up, the 87,000 people that showed up in the mall were enormously fat," he joked.

"This is what the 9/12 project was all about:  To tell people you're not alone.  And I don't think there's a soul that felt they were alone this weekend, not a soul.  Biggest service project in the history of America.  And we've just begun.  14 tractor‑trailers left on Saturday for eleven different cities across the country.  14 tractor‑trailers full of food.  And that was only one service project.  Service project, 305 service projects."

"One of the stories here in Dallas that talked about the service projects, they were struggling for anything to say that would be bad about this. 305 service projects. 14 tractor‑trailers full of food going to eleven different cities, and what did the newspaper report? The newspaper reported that Tarrant County was left out."

Pat noted that Tarrant County is one of the wealthiest counties in the country.

Anyone who watched the event would see how different it was from anything Glenn had ever done, with incredibly visuals and music.

"You have to see this thing. If you didn't, if you missed it, you have to watch it in its entirety. It is ‑‑ Pat said this morning, he said, Glenn, that was Super Bowl quality. It really was. Really was. And I say that without ‑‑ I'm not taking any credit for it. The crew that I have, I was so amazed by my staff. I have the best staff I believe, and I say this with humility because I didn't assemble it. I have the best staff I believe ever assembled in radio and television. I really do. We are 130 people. We should be about ‑‑ to do what we do, it should be about a staff of about 400."

"They have never done anything like this. I believe we created a new art form this last Saturday. Nobody ‑ when I said a year ago we're going to do the whole speech and I want it to be ‑ I want the whole show to never end. So when we start rolling, music runs all the way through it, and it never stops. I said, I don't want people to be able to catch their breath through this whole thing."

"It's unlike anything anybody's ever done."

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.
