Fraud: Gore takes $100m in oil money in Current TV sale to al Jazeera

More details on TheBlaze's efforts to purchase Current TV were revealed in the opening moments of the radio show. Details HERE

In a stunning development yesterday Al Gore sold his TV network, Current, to Osama bin Laden mouthpiece Al Jazeera. TheBlaze TV actually inquired when Current went up for sale but were rejected by Gore because he wanted to sell Current to someone ‘aligned’ with his values. Naturally Gore felt totally comfortable with the terror tape network that is Al Jazeera.

"I want to talk about Al Gore here for a second, a guy who was 537 votes away from being the president of the United States during September 11th, has just sold Current TV to Al‑Jazeera. And I want to quote directly from the Wall Street Journal story. 'Mr. Hyatt' ‑‑ that's Al Gore's partner ‑‑ 'agreed to sell Al‑Jazeera in part because, quote, Al‑Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current, including to give voice to those whose voices are not typically heard and to speak truth to power'," Glenn said.

"Al‑Jazeera is speaking truth to the American power and their truth is Osama Bin Laden's truth, is the Muslim Brotherhood's truth. Really? Other suitors who didn't share Current's ideology were rebuffed," he continued.

"So listen to that. If you didn't share their ideology which they said Al‑Jazeera does, they wouldn't even listen to you," Glenn said. "We didn't align with them, but Al‑Jazeera did."

Glenn verified that the quote in the Wall Street Journal was accurate.

Pat and the rest of the radio crew emphasized that Gore was 537 votes away from becoming President in 2001, one of the darkest times in America's  history, and yet "he's aligned apparently with the people who are spewing anti‑American propaganda" for over a decade.

Glenn was also shocked that Gore, who became an evangelist for global warming after leaving office, could sell his network to Qatar. The state, which owns Al-Jazeera, derives most of its wealth from oil and natural gas.

"The guy, the guy is so, let me be kind, enigmatic that he can be the (vice) president of the United States and yet align himself with Al‑Jazeera, that he can say 'Global warming, it's, we're tired of waiting, we're tired of these big companies, we're tired of the lies, we're tired of this industry' and then he can sell his cable channel to an oil‑rich country that their money ‑ how did the government of Qatar afford the $500 million?  How did they do that?  Oil, what he is going against, that's the money ‑ he has blood money.  If you believe in global warming the way he does and that it is imperative that it stops now, he has just taken blood money."

"You would think that he has no principles," he added.

But the worse thing, in Glenn's opinion, was the fact that just a decade ago Al-Jazeera was clearly seen as anti-American and a mouthpiece for Al Queda.

" If you were listening to this broadcast February 1st, 2002, I was saying something very similar to this: The Wall Street Journal has just reported that Daniel Pearl has been killed.  He was beheaded by Islamic extremists.  Because of this and everything else that's going on, Super Bowl security has been stepped up, this according to ABC News.  Security measure for Sunday's Super Bowl has been with the St. Louis Rams and the New England Patriots.  So unusual and so extraordinary that even the players are having a hard time getting around New Orleans this year.  Also, an interview in which Osama Bin Laden justifies the killing of innocent people in the World Trade Center just a few months ago warns the West that it is facing an unbearable hell.  This was suppressed by the Arab language satellite broadcaster Al‑Jazeera, according to executives at the U.S. news channel CNN.  An hour‑long interview in which Al‑Jazeera leader says freedom and human rights in America are doomed was recorded by Al‑Jazeera in October but not released according to CNN."

Glenn added a line to the news of 2002 to show how much can change, saying, "Oh, and one final piece of news:  Al Gore has just sold his Current network to Al‑Jazeera.  Mr. Hyatt said they agreed to sell Al‑Jazeera in part because Al‑Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current, end quote."

"Do you see the drift?  Most people will say, no big deal.  Al‑Jazeera, what difference does it make?  It's Al Gore, blah, blah‑blah.  Put it into the context of what you've always known to be true.  Put it into the context in an interview with Osama Bin Laden justified the killing of those in the World Trade Center, justified the killing and said America is facing an unbearable hell that freedom and human rights in America are doomed, and Al‑Jazeera had it and did not report I.  They recorded it!  How did they even get their cameras there?  They recorded the interview a ‑‑ I'm sorry, a few weeks after September 11th.  They were granted access to the number one target in the world.  Remember this is when Germany and England and everybody in the entire world was still holding hands with America, and Al‑Jazeera was granted access on this ruthless killer, they recorded his words and then refused to release them.  And CNN had to come in and say Al‑Jazeera is out of control and an enemy of the state.  That is who Al‑Jazeera is.  And remember Hyatt's words, the partner of Al Gore yesterday, in today's Wall Street Journal:  Hyatt said they agreed to Al‑Jazeera in part because, quote, Al‑Jazeera was founded with the same principles we had for Current, end quote."

"Maybe it's time somebody wakes up," Glenn said.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.

Like most people, biologist and science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now?

Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the left practically worshipped Dr. Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology.

If you watched Glenn Beck's special last week, "Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World's Most Dangerous Lie," you learned some very disturbing things about what our government officials — like Dr. Fauci — were doing around the beginning of the pandemic. On the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn sat down with Ridley to review what he and "Viral" co-author Alina Chan found while researching — including a "fascinating little wrinkle" from the Wuhan Institute of Virology called "7896."
