There are a ton of movies about to open - one of them is Exodus

Glenn ran down some of the many movies set to release and surprisingly many of them seem very promising. The big dilemma, however, is of course whether or not to attend the movie Exodus. On the one hand it’s great that Hollywood made a film centering around a key Biblical figure. On the other hand we know what Hollywood does to Biblical movies (see: Noah). Will Glenn see it?

PAT: Good morning and afternoon to you. Or evening if —

GLENN: Good morning.

PAT: Like the old Truman Show thing. Good morning and good afternoon, good evening and good night in case I don't see you. Remember that?

GLENN: Thanks for bringing that memory back. That was beautiful. I saw the Stephen Hawking movie last night.

PAT: Oh, yeah, how was that? It looks good. I'm not sure what that means.

GLENN: Really good. Really good.

PAT: It was a good movie?

GLENN: Yeah. The guy who plays Stephen Hawking is brilliant.

PAT: He looks a lot like him.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. That's not something you want people to say. You know what?

You look like Stephen Hawking. Thank you. Thank you very much.

(laughing).

JEFFY: Might be a good thing from a strip club, though, because I know Stephen used to —

GLENN: They ever.

PAT: Now, see, I didn't know that part —

GLENN: Yeah, and they handled that very delicately.

PAT: Did they?

GLENN: He's part of this. He helped with this movie. And I — doesn't necessarily make him look like a good guy. But the first part of it, the first 45 minutes, beautiful love story. Just beautiful love story. And then Stephen, you know, gets a trach and — and shortly before that he's kind of bad to his wife in a way. She has committed — you know, they said, like two years. They only have two years to live. This is 1965. Two years max.

PAT: Yeah, nobody — prior survived that for — like he has.

GLENN: Correct. So no —

PAT: Had they?

GLENN: No. He's not supposed to survive. She is a God-fearing woman. She loves him. Really loves him. And so decides, I'm going to get married anyway and I'll carry that burden for two years because I love him. She does everything. Well, they have children. And children and more children. I think they have four. Three or four. And so here she is as a mom in the '60s, in the early '70 s . He's an invalid. She's carrying him to the bathroom, she's carrying him to the bed. Everything else. She's getting him dressed every day, brushing his teeth, pushing him around.

PAT: And is she like, I thought you were going to die. What is this?

GLENN: Surprisingly —

PAT: She's not like that? Okay, good.

GLENN: So it's 1978, 1980. And she still doesn't have any help. And she's like, Stephen, I've got to have help. And —

PAT: Not from him but fire somebody.

GLENN: Hire somebody.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And he said no, we're a normal family. No, we're not a normal fame. I don't know if you know this, but I have to carry you to go poopy on the pottie.

PAT: Is that a correct quote?

GLENN: No, it's not. So he's kind of a jerk. But you understand it up to a point. And then — and then he gets this speech therapist after this heartwrenching scene with his I wife, just heartwrenching scene. And then he gets a speech that's rightist and she start reading him "Penthouse" magazine and they go all perverted. -- it's weird. It's really, really weird. And I'm a fan of Steve hocking but it doesn't make him look good. I don't think. You'll like the first part. If you see this movie, you'll like the first part, it's a beautiful love story. But you'll walk out — he's an atheist and in the end at "The Brief History of Time," this would verify the existence of God or give God his rightful place or something like that. And he has since recanted that. But she comes this and she's like, wait a minute, you believe — you're recognizing God?

PAT: Yeah, I thought he had done that.

GLENN: Yeah, he did. In brief history of time, he recognizes God. And she said, and she starts getting all teary-eyed and he says, however — and she says, you're not gonna take this moment from me, are you? And he just kind of looks at her and he says, you're welcome. And so that was a nice touching thing. But then it just kind of goes to hell in a hand basket. You're kind of like, oh, so the 72-year-old creepy dude is alone now. Okay, honey, let's go and have a good time.

PAT: One of those kind of movies.

GLENN: That —

PAT: Leaves you feeling yicky. GLENN: Yeah. He gives a great speech at the end where if you don't believe in God, what do you believe in and he gives a great speech at the end. But it's not enough to — for me it wasn't enough to make up for — I don't know, the way he treated this remarkable woman. Just a remarkable woman. The first part of it, it's worth seeing I think, because it shows the love of an amazing woman. Just an amazing woman. And you know, at the end when he's breaking up with her, she — he just — he rolls into her, kind of like, you know, this is the way of just trying to hug her. And she's kind of standing with her back to her. She's crying and he rolls into the back of her and he says -- and she turns to him and she said, how many years, and he said, two. Meaning I was only supposed to live two. And she gets down on her knees in his wheelchair and she's sobbing and she's like, I did the best I could, Stephen. I did the best I could. I mean, she's a beautiful woman. Just a wonderful, wonderful woman.

PAT: She's still alive?

GLENN: Yeah. And she's married to the guy who they finally brought in to take care of him, which they didn't have anything —

PAT: Spoiler alert. Spoiler alert.

GLENN: Nobody is going to see the Stephen hocking movie.

JEFF: I think they will.

PAT: It's gotten a lot of hype.

JEFFY: The speech therapist.

GLENN: The guy needs to get an Oscar. He well — he played him so well. And she's great in it, too. It's really a good movie and great performances. But don't expect, you know — I have —

PAT: A happy time.

GLENN: A happy feeling when you leave. At least it didn't for me and Tania. Tania was like I didn't know he was such a pervert. Like yeah, yeah.

PAT: Not good. And it's called "The Theory Of Everything."

GLENN: Everything.

PAT: There's still quite a few really big movies coming out like Exodus and Kings. Is it next week or the week after that? "Exodus, Gods and Kings" is what it's called.

GLENN: I just don't have a good feeling.

PAT: Be careful of that one.

GLENN: Don't have a good feeling about that movie.

PAT: Well, you shouldn't. We talked a little bit last week about the 11-year-old kid who plays God. Snotty 11-year-old. That's how God is presented.

GLENN: As a snotty 11-year-old kid.

PAT: British. He's also British. God wasn't British.

GLENN: Are you sure?

PAT: I'm positive.

GLENN: How are you positive?

PAT: He's American.

GLENN: He's American, okay. Because in the last Ten Commandment movie.

PAT: He has no discernible accent job he has — wait, what? He had an American accent.

PAT: Americans don't have accents. Like me, I don't have an accent.

(laughing).

PAT: It's the rest of the world that has accents.

GLENN: Exactly right.

PAT: That's for them. That's for foreigners.

(laughing).

PAT: Isn't that our attitude?

GLENN: It is, it is. So what's coming up besides God and Kings?

PAT: Next Wednesday I think "The Hobbit" opens. Are you excited about the last one here? No? Are you tired of "The Hobbit"?

GLENN: Looks good.

PAT: It does look good.

GLENN: Here's what I'm tired of. We're doing a — we're doing three movies. It's a three-book series, so three movies in a series. Of course, the last book will be split into seven and a half movies.

PAT: Yeah, that —

GLENN: I'm also sick of it.

PAT: That's right. This isn't the last one —

GLENN: No, I think this is the last one.

PAT: This is the last one. Last year was the first part.

GLENN: No, last year was the second part of the third part.

PAT: Of the third.

GLENN: Of the last book. But come on. Just end the damn thing. All right.

PAT: It's hard when you're making $500 million per movie.

GLENN: I know. Have also self-control.

PAT: It's tough.

GLENN: Peter Jackson, have self-control, please.

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."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
