MSNBC is the best thing that ever happened to conservatism

As much as MSNBC may drive Glenn, Pat, and Stu crazy, there's no denying it's quite possibly one of the greatest things to ever happen to the conservative movement. Chris Matthews, in particular, makes some of the most nonsensical statements of all-time almost daily. If that doesn't expose the world (or their 10 viewers) to the idiocies of the left, what will?

For example, Chris Matthews' only argument against any criticism conservatives give President Obama is racism:

Don't like Obamacare? Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Don't like the way he's handling Libya? Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Don't want to pay hire taxes? Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Think unemployment numbers aren't accurate? You guessed it: Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Following a statement by Donald Trump on unemployment numbers, Chris Matthews made one of his most ridiculous statements yet:

"Everything he's done is clean as a whistle. He's never not only broken any law. He's never done anything wrong. The perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American. And all they do is trash the guy. And it's impossible for me to believe they would have said the same thing about a Walter Mondale or a Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton. There's an ethnic piece to this…Trump says the president is, quote, monkeying with the unemployment numbers. It just keeps going on over and or again."

That must be it -- blatant racism. It can't be that the unemployment numbers are worth taking a better look at, or that, when reporting on them, the media should take into consideration the declining number of people included in the participation rate. It's just racism.

Chris Matthews, of course, hasn't bothered to site any facts that support his claims of racism, aside from the phrase "monkeying the numbers." You'll also notice he hasn't taken a better look at the numbers. He isolates and ridicules -- classic Saul Alinksy.

Matthews was joined in this segment by Jonathan Alter, who made just as ridiculous of a claim about Trump's ridiculous stunt for the president to release his college transcripts.

"I think it's rank racism," Alter claimed. "You know, sometimes people on the right get very upset when people on the left charge racism but, you know, shuck and jive, that's like talking about watermelon, or, you know, talking about Jews are greedy or the Irish are drunk or whatever. These are racist tropes and we need to call them what they are. And I actually think ‑‑ at least implicitly Trump was playing on racism today with his ridiculous stunt demanding Obama's college transcripts."

In other words: when Republicans want to see Barack Obama's sealed college transcripts, it's racism; when the Democrats scrutinize George W. Bush's, it's just good politics.

Watch the full exchange here:

Stu noted that while the argument about the transcripts is ridiculous and not the path to an election victory, he highly doubts anyone thinks the president didn't get good grades.

"But beyond that I would bet you with almost ‑‑ outside of any of the candidates that we've seen recently over the past several elections, the most likely guy to have really good grades with annoyingly liberal college professors is Barack Obama. He said himself he was befriending the Marxist professors," Stu said. "Do you think this guy got bad grades? He didn't get bad grades."

But that's the storyline Matthews and friends are sticking to: that conservatives only want to see them because he's black and could only stay in school because of Affirmative Action.

Ridiculous.

There's absolutely nothing else that could be interesting in the transcripts, like who his teachers were or what classes he took -- it has to be racism.

It's the same argument, over and over again from MSNBC. But that's not how they see it. According to Chris Matthews, if you think they're repeating the same thing over and over again, you're "dead wrong and you're dangerous."

Or at least that's what we think he meant to say. Like the "brilliant" broadcaster that Chris Matthews is, this is what he actually said:

Matthews: "Anybody out there by the way, thinks we're for saying things that's over and over again, and if you think we're saying things, you're dead wrong and you're dangerous."

"MSNBC is the best that I think has ever happened to conservatives," Stu said after hearing that.

"I mean, seriously you could give them credit for at least 10 or 15 of the 65 seats in the last election. That's how much damage they do to the liberal movement. Continue. Stay on the air. Keep going, MSNBC, despite the fact that no one watches, just keep doing what you're doing."

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.
