Glenn's interview with Brian Lilley

TheBlaze TV’s interest in Current was dismissed by Gore in favor of al Jazeera, but the media seems more concerned with Glenn’s dealings while ignoring at the prospect of Gore being ‘aligned’ with the network that spews anti-American propaganda. More details on the shocking purchase move on radio today came during Glenn’s interview with Brian Lilley from Sun News.

Transcript of the interview is below:

GLENN: We go to Brian Lilley. He's a broadcaster out of Ottawa, Canada on Sun television network. Sun is trying to do very much the same thing that we're doing with TheBlaze up in Canada. These are like‑minded guys and freedom lovers and really, really wicked smart. I feel a little embarrassed because I always know more about what we're doing here than I know about Canada. But he ‑‑ Brian has ‑‑ hi, Brian, how are you, sir?

LILLEY: Oh, good to talk to you again, Glenn.

GLENN: You ‑‑

LILLEY: But I'm calling with an apology really.


LILLEY: Because we're giving you in a way ‑‑ this is my apology on behalf of all the people in Canada to all the people of the United States of America because we gave birth to what is soon to become Al‑Jazeera USA because before Al Gore bought it, Current TV started out as the U.S. operations of our state broadcaster, CBC. And I can tell you they didn't really change editorial direction when Gore bought them and I don't think they will change editorial direction all that much with Al‑Jazeera at the helm.

GLENN: Well, that's why he's selling it to them. He said that. I mean, you know, here's the amazing thing: His life goal was to build this, you know, network to get the word out. They're firing everybody. They're going to fire all of the people that built this network and then build ‑‑ you know, Al‑Jazeera will build their own, you know, thing. There's no mention of all the employees that Al Gore is pleased as punch that he's made $100 million on but all these employees are all gone. All just you gone.

LILLEY: It will allow them to continue to fly in his personal jets with limos in the back to give speeches about how you and I need to reduce our global footprint.

GLENN: Brian, understand I won't do this on your show but if you're on my show, you have to say "about" not "aboot."

PAT: You have to.

GLENN: I'll say aboot on your show if it makes you more comfortable but just something ‑‑

LILLEY: I'll watch that.

GLENN: I don't know what happened. What happened to you in Canada where that happened?

PAT: That's weird.

GLENN: I mean, of all the things to be different on, that's not the thing I would choose, like, we're going to say "about" differently. What's that?

LILLEY: My youngest daughter, that's my excuse. It's aboot...(inaudible) right now, you know?

GLENN: Yeah. So how do you feel about ‑‑ I mean, your perspective ‑‑ because I'm not convinced ‑‑ let's put it this way: The Wall Street Journal, the Business Insider, the Huffington Post, everybody is now kind of talking about this story about our failed bid for Current instead of saying the former vice president of the United States just sold his network and said he's ideologically aligned with Al‑Jazeera. How does that ‑‑ what does that say to you in Canada about America?

LILLEY: I'm not shocked. And again I go back to the fact that this started as a CBC operation and there's these connections that go between CBC and the international left and Al‑Jazeera and what's going on. The guy that headed up Al‑Jazeera, English when it started is a gentleman named Tony Berman, and Tony Berman has since retired. He used to head up CBC news division here in Canada, the national broadcaster funded with a billion dollars a year from taxpayers, and he left CBC to go start Al‑Jazeera English. And he took a bunch of people with him. He since retired and now he's ‑‑ this is even more scary. He's teaching journalism students at a university in Toronto. That is more frightening. But he took a lot of his employees with him including a guy named Avi Lewis. I think he's still there. Avi Lewis' father is very famous. His name's Stephen Lewis because he's still going around the world as a special agent of the United Nations dealing with AIDS. He's the go‑to guy on the AIDS issue. They are all socialists, international leftists, connected him with Al‑Jazeera, connected him with Al Gore. Avi Lewis' wife is Naomi Klein who wrote Shock Doctrine. She's a hero of the American left. They make millions doing this, by the way. They make themselves very wealthy. But it is a global leftist ideology and that's why it wraps up so nice together.

GLENN: Thanks a lot, Brian from Sun News in Canada.

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."
