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.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
