Glenn: 'The GOP is dead to me'

Judging from the public reaction to the GOP's pathetic job in the fiscal cliff negotiations — $41 dollars in increased tax revenue to $1 in spending cuts, really? — their going to have a long road ahead of them leading up to the midterms. John Boehner failed miserably, not only in negotiations with the Democrats, but ultimately in unifying his own party.

"He is awful," Glenn said about him this morning.

"This is an awful deal," Stu added.

So awful in fact, that it was thought Speaker Boehner could lose his Speakership by the end of the day (he didn't). Like Glenn explained to his radio audience this morning, it's not that Boehner didn't get what he wanted in the negotiations, most conservatives knew that wasn't a likely scenario, it's that he didn't even appear to have a strategy or a plan. It wasn't just a bad deal, it was one of the worst deals he could have walked away with.

"He is awful, awful, awful. Where is your plan, man? You know, really, I would have better things to say about him if he had a plan and it failed," Glenn said. "The guy didn't even have a plan. He knew this was going ‑‑ he knew this was going to come two years ago. This was your plan?"

Obviously, the Speaker could have gotten a better deal before the election, but he didn't even do the best he could. And if he did, it's not good enough.

"There were other options they could have gone with," Pat commented. "We talked about them before the break. There were some decent options."

As of this morning, likely replacement for Boehner should he lose his position, would have been Eric Cantor.

"But I don't know that Cantor is going to be any better," Pat noted. "We'll see. I mean, who knows with the Republican Party."

But therein lies the root of the issue: "Who knows with the Republican Party."

You should know the general character of the men and women you vote into office, especially those holding leadership positions in Congress. Americans should know their principals and why they do what they do. And it shouldn't be 'to get re-elected'.

"The Republican Party, you're dead to me," Glenn said disgusted.

Glenn reiterated that it's not that the GOP negotiated a bad deal (not that it helped), it's the motivations of why they got a bad deal. 'Why', a topic Glenn discussed when explain the direction he's headed in for 2013 last night on TheBlaze TV.

"We talked about this last night: they don't know why they do it," he said. "The Republican Party's 'why' is so they can get elected. That's not a good enough 'why'."

"This is really important to understand," Glenn continued. "If you're a business person, if you are a politician, you're human.  If you're a parent; the most important question that you can you ever ask yourself is "Why?". Why do I do it?  Why do I do it?  Why do I believe?  Why do I go to work every day?…You have to find something that connects with you. That is: I do it because I'm driven to do itI'm doing it because that's who I am." 

"I do it because I'm driven to do it.  Because that's my job.  That's my calling in life.  That's who I am."

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

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."
