Why is Glenn so angry?

Glenn has found himself particularly angry over the last few weeks, and this morning on radio, he tried to get to the bottom of his frustrations. He began by telling the story of four friends riding in a car on the freeway.

The story goes like this:

Four friends are riding in the car on the freeway. Just in front of them, there is a car in the left-hand lane. Suddenly it veers into their lane and nearly hits their car. Both cars swerve, screech, and then veer off onto the shoulder.

One the friends wants to get out of the car and “beat the snot” out of the guy in the other car. Another one of the friends is cursing up a storm. The third friend asks if everyone in the car is okay. And the fourth friend decides to get out of the car and make sure the other driver is okay.

Here is a story of four individuals who just experienced the exact same situation but react in four entirely different ways. So what is the moral of the story?

“Here's the truth of this story. The truth of this story and the way this works is guy number one and guy number two aren't really angry or mad at the other driver. Maybe a little bit, but that's not really where their reaction is coming from,” Glenn explained.

“Who are they really mad at? I don't know – their dad, their teacher, a boss who fired them one time. Those are all lies too, but that's who they really think that they're mad at... The driver of the other car gives them the excuse to vent their anger.”

Eleanor Roosevelt famously said: No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Glenn took a similar approach when considering the root of his own anger, explaining that it is ultimately a choice.

“Yesterday I was angry. I was really angry, and I couldn't take it anymore. And I wondered why. Because this president cannot make me angry, just like this president or another president could ever make me happy,” Glenn said.

“No one can ever make me happy without my permission. No one can ever make me mad without my permission. I choose. I need to do a better job of owning my stuff, owning my own anger, owning my own happiness because if you don't, somebody else owns it for you.”

Next time you find yourself thinking, Man, that person makes me really angry, really stop and consider the source of your frustration. Are you really angry at that particular individual? Or is it something deeper? To that point, Glenn asked the audience for their prayers.

“And may I suggest that you pray for me because I've got to start choosing more wisely and figure out: Am I angry at me? I tried to figure this out last night. Am I angry at me,” Glenn asked. “Maybe I'm angry at me because I let it happen, because I was stupid for all of these years. Am I angry at me because I've tried everything I can and I can't figure out a way to stop it… Am I angry that I have made mistakes in the last 10 years that have put me in the place to where I'm part of the problem and not part of the solution? Or am I just really pissed off at this Marxist in the White House? That could be [it].”

“I'm not sure [though] because we give [President Obama] far too much power in many ways, but emotionally we give him far too much power. We are angry a lot of the time,” he continued. “And I don't know how Gandhi did it. I don't know how Martin Luther King did it. I don't know how. I don't know how they did it, other than they were right in step with the eternal truths. And boy, man, I'm trying. I'm trying.”

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"
