Ann Coulter reacts to vp debate: "Biden was a cackling old fool and really so rude"

What did Ann Coulter think of last night's vp debate? Was Biden over the top? Was Ryan too passive? The bestselling author joined Glenn this morning on radio to share her thoughts.

"It was quite an amazing evening last night, Glenn said. "I heard they were trying to appeal to women. I don't know a single woman that was like, you know, I want to vote for just an old jerk."

"Yeah, I don't think the appealing to women strategy worked," Ann responded. "It was very strange, Biden behavior, but wow, that's what liberals have been pushing for. I mean, that laughing at everything and serious issues"

During last night's debate Joe Biden seemingly did everything he could to keep Paul Ryan from being able to finish a sentence. He seemed to talk over Ryan at every opportunity, and despite what seem liked a very out-of-balance speaking time, it's being reported that Joe Biden only spoke for about a minute and a half longer than Paul Ryan — which shocked Ann Coulter.

"The problem was when he was being interrupted, both clocks were running," Glenn pointed out.

"I don't think Romney would allow himself to be interrupted that much," Ann commented.

"Ryan was too polite and I would like to remind everyone here that many people were pushing for Ryan as the presidential candidate just to reiterate that we should always hang on my every word," she added.

Ann has a point. While Ryan had good, substantive answers, many of the independent and undecided voters noted that he was letting Biden talk over him too much, which gave Biden the appearance of being more confident. That said, Biden's mannerisms seemed to backfire quite a bit.

Ann described Biden as, "a cackling old fool and really so rude, I completely agree with you on the woman's reaction to that. I mean, it just reminds you of the most Jack ass male you have ever known or dated or had a conversation with the smearing and laughing through everything, utterly inappropriately, utterly dismissive of everything Ryan was sage and Biden was sage a lot of crazy stuff."

On substance, many are calling the debate a draw, but at the very beginning of the debate Biden hit his low point when the subject of the attack in Benghazi were brought to the table.

Joe Biden, despite the hearings that occurred all day on the subject of "what our intelligence was at the time of the attack," seemed to be under the impression that there was no warning that the attacks were coming or that the consulate had requested increased security.

"We just had hearings with state department officials saying yes, we were warned," Ann said. "Biden is saying, I don't know what's going on."

Despite his lack of "intelligence" on issues in Benghazi, the VP went on to say that the White House has good intelligence on Iran and their development of nuclear weapons.

"Right, right, and laughing as Ryan was talking about the danger of Iran getting a nuclear weapon," Ann pointed out. "Biden was laughing. It was really peculiar. And it's interesting that liberals seem to think that this was fantastic and as they say, 'okay, it's gotten Obama back on track' — maybe they planned to say this no matter what the debate performance was."

"I think that was their plan last night. I really think that was their plan last night," Glenn said.

Glenn shifted the conversation to his fast — honestly, how long do you expect Glenn to go without talking about food with he can't eat sweets — and gave Ann a perspective he hadn't heard from anyone else…

"I think we saw who Mitt Romney truly was and I think we saw who Obama truly is. I think we saw the real Paul Ryan and the real Joe Biden. So I think there's some divine Providence, and let me…I tweeted this morning.

God sent his tweet out a little while ago and it's Proverbs," Glenn said.

When a wise person debates with a fool, the fool rages and laughs and there is no peace and quiet.

"Wow," Ann reacted.

Glenn added, "That's exactly what happened last night."

Glenn went on to ask Ann what she sees coming down the road the last few weeks of this election.

She noted that the reaction from the public to the media and other forces, like her book, seem to have changed the left's "favorite campaign" talking points. She noted that a week before her book came out Al Sharpton described the integration of Ole Miss by James Maris (who was actually a Republican being blocked by a Democratic governor who was supported by Jimmy Carter) as "the Republicans versus the Democrats, as usual, reversing the parties and said we're fighting the same forces today on things like, women's reproductive choice."

"He did the same story for no particular reason about the little rock high schools and this time, he said who the Republicans and the democrats actually were," she said.

"People have had enough of it," Glenn said. "I think the idea of just playing the high ground here, being firm, being clear, but playing the high ground and not engaging in that I think that's what's going to win."

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.
