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.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
