Doc & Skip break a Glenn Beck Radio Program rule

This wasn't the first time Doc Thompson and Skip Lacombe had covered the radio program with Glenn away from the microphone, so there's really no excuse for what they did. Doc even admitted he knew they were about to break a rule, but they did it anyway. What was their crime? Flagrant violation of the "Trump Free Zone."

"Now, I know Pat and Stu have called for a moratorium on the Trump word, but they're not here today. So screw it. We'll talk a little Trump," Doc said.

In utter defiance of the "Trump Free Zone," Doc went on to share what his thoughts on the billionaire business magnate.

"Donald Trump for me has never been somebody I'm going to actively support. Over the past couple of weeks I've said he's kind of the middle of the pack for me because he is the outsider. I think Donald Trump is quite bright when it comes things finance and negotiation, I think he would be tough when it comes to things like foreign affairs. But Donald Trump has backpedaled and flip-flopped and changed his mind on a lot of things, so I don't know what I'm going to get," Doc said.

Doc then shared a major announcement.

"Donald Trump has now moved into a new category for me. He's on my 'Not That Guy' list," Doc said.

His big hangup? Trump's recent statement about illegal immigrants and amnesty.

"For me personally, there are a couple of issues that I'm not able to negotiate on. And that is immigration," Doc said. "If you will not commit to deportations of all people here illegally, you're dead to me. You're politically dead to me."

Below is a rush transcription of this segment, it may contain errors:

DOC: Who is on the list for you that is absolutely the person you could not under any circumstances vote for? For me, Donald Trump is the new addition. There are a couple of people that have already been on the list. I'll go from the bottom up who is on my list. The absolute bottom of my list. Mike Huckabee. Mike Huckabee is only slightly worse than Jeb Bush because Mike Huckabee says and does a lot of the same progressive outrageously wrong, crappy things that Jeb Bush does, believes, and has done. But Mike Huckabee also uses Jesus to justify doing it. Which is reprehensible. That you would use your faith as supposedly a conservative, to woo people to go to your website and buy your crap, Mike Huckabee, and try to get you elected, only to build yourself up to use your faith to do that. That is absolutely the lowest of the low.

SKIP: And he's essentially one of those guys like in that Steve Martin movie, Leap of Faith too. I mean, going town to town. Talking about Jesus and healing people for money.

DOC: He's shaking snakes and telling you to drink the strychnine for Jesus. When all he's really interested in is himself. And, Mike Huckabee, you want to challenge me on that? Sit down here. I'll put you on this program. I'll put you on our program. I'll challenge you. I'll meet you on any street corner anywhere in America and debate you on this stuff. I know your track record.

SKIP: He won't come on our show.

DOC: No, he won't. Because he's afraid of us. Just like the other people. Mike Huckabee, I know who you are. I have your track record. I have the information on you. I know your record as governor in Arkansas. I remember when you called the conservatives in Arkansas Shiite Republicans. Comparing them to terrorist extremists in the Middle East because you didn't simply like the fact that they didn't want you to raise the taxes on the people of Arkansas. I know that you've been selling your website name and the people on that, that sign up for your site, so people can target them to sell essentially what I call snake oil. I know who you are. And using Jesus to do it, you're despicable. Slightly up on that list, is Jeb Bush. He does slightly all those things. He just hasn't invoked the name Jesus. So those two absolutely on the bottom of the list for me.

SKIP: Yeah, and those two will oftentimes trade off back and forth on who is the actual worst of the worst. I mean, Jeb Bush will come out and say something in the next week that will put him back on the other side for me. And then Mike Huckabee will come back. So they battle for the worst of the worst in my mind.

DOC: You know what it is, these two are so bad, I'd rather vote for Jim Webb, the Democrat former senator of Virginia before I'd vote for them. How bad is it? I'd vote for Lindsey Graham before I'd vote for those two. That's how awful it is.

SKIP: They're incrementally better than Obama. You want to talk about progressive.

DOC: Let me think about that.

SKIP: Seriously. Let that marinate for a second. I'll say they're better than Obama.

DOC: Hold on. No. No, I don't know if they are. I can make an argument they're worse than Obama. At least with Obama, you know what you're getting. With Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee, they wrap it up in being caring. We care more than you. But we're conservative. They get in there and do the same crap. In fact, if it hadn't been for George W. Bush, we wouldn't have Obama. Because he pretended to be the conservative. Did the same stuff. And everybody said, well, we don't like all that crap that's going on that's not conservative. But they thought it was and ran to Obama. So I put him on the same par with him. All horrible people. Next up on my list is Lindsey Graham. Skip Lacombe, Jeb Bush or Lindsey Graham? Go.

SKIP: I'll take Lindsey Graham. Begrudgingly.

DOC: Lindsey Graham or Chris Christie? Go. It's incremental.

SKIP: That's a tough one. Graham.

DOC: I put Chris Christie slightly above Lindsey Graham. Slightly.

SKIP: I don't know. I'm going Lindsey Graham because I don't want to see Chris Christie throwing up first pitch for years. Hold on. Maybe I do want to see --

DOC: Yes, you do.

SKIP: I talked myself out of it. Chris Christie.

DOC: There's another factor we have to consider. A much smaller factor than saving America, it's show content.

DOC: That's a much, much lesser. Way down on the list. But all things being equal.

SKIP: Chris Christie.

DOC: Lindsey Graham brings a lot of content. I mean, the first -- it wouldn't be the first president that -- how can I clean this up. An effeminate American president.

SKIP: Okay.

DOC: I mean, we talked about being politically correct in phrases yesterday. We don't know exactly all details with Lindsey. I'm just speculating. Effeminate American? Is that how we -- I think that would be good content. Anyone else notice that Lindsey Graham is starting to look like John McCain?

SKIP: Dude, they are. They've been hanging out too much.

DOC: John McCain is the emperor. Something, something, Lindsey Graham. Something, something, vote with me, Jeff. Something, something dark side. That's John McCain. Right? Take a look at recent pictures of Lindsey Graham. Look at Lindsey Graham when he was active in the military, I mean, many, many years ago, right? His uniform looked buttoned up. Okay looking guy. Look at him now. He's on the path to being John McCain.

SKIP: Same thing with John McCain too. Strapping young military man back in the day.

DOC: I think Lindsey Graham is trying to look like him now.

SKIP: I think you're right.

DOC: Also, on my not that guy list, Chris Christie. He's just one up from Lindsey Graham. Donald Trump has just been added. He's at the same level, one notch up from Chris Christie. With Scott Walker and John Kasich. That rounds up my not that guy list.

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.
