Humans Will Evolve Into Aquaman?

It would be so cool to be Aquaman, right?

Well, if scientific expert Dr. Matthew Skinner hypothesizes correctly, we may all get to experience what it feels like to be an aquatic superhero.

Here's the deal, when global warming hits and the ice caps melt, we'll all be living in an underwater community, right? (We'll need a community organizer.) So, naturally, we'll have to evolve to survive.

This is where things take a super cool turn---our bodies will change so we can swim better. We'll get longer fingers and toes that eventually become webbed, and our eyes will adjust to the low light conditions by growing a nictitating membrane. (For you climate change skeptics out there, that means we'll grow a third eyelid. Yay!)

Unfortunately, Dr. Skinner misses one really critical change.

"Now, nowhere does he say that we'll have gills so we can breathe underwater, which would be a good safety tip," Glenn suggested. "But our fingers are going to grow longer. We're going to get webbed fingers, webbed toes."

The most important takeaway, though, is how all of this can be avoided if we save the planet.

"It's just another in the series of scare tactics," said co-host Stu. "Oh, my God. We're going to get webbed feet. I don't want webbed feet for my children. We need to make America great again. No more webbed feet."

GLENN: I have to play this. And, Stu, I want to put together a series. We're launching a new season of the Glenn Beck radio program. And if you're watching any of the behind the scenes stuff, some of it was released on Facebook last night. In the next year, we're going to be making a lot of new changes to the show. Trying some new things out. One of them is going to be a -- a series of serials, if you will, to where we'll take on a topic or a question and we'll try to answer that question over several episodes. And one of them, I think we need to do is the hysteria of global warming and compare it to the futurists of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s. The guys who said, "Oh, yeah, by 2020, it's just going to be flying cars and everything else."

By the year 2000, we won't even be eating food. We'll be having little cubes that will have all your nourishment in there. Restaurants will be banished.

Listen to this scientist who says that because of global warming, man's body is about to change.

MATTHEW: The first scenario relates to global warming. We imagine that the ice caps are melting. We see a drastic rise in sea levels. And humans are forced to live in an underwater community. And so what we might see is changes to our body, which help us to swim better. For example, we might see a lengthening of our fingers. This might cause us to evolve webbed fingers and toes.

PAT: Oh.

MATTHEW: Another critical thing that we'll need to do is to be able to see in low light conditions that we find underwater. Perhaps, most striking, we might see something called a nictitating membrane. And this is essentially a third eyelid, which helps protect the eye in an underwater environment.

GLENN: That's Dr. Matthew Skinner. Now, nowhere does he say that we'll have gills so we can breathe underwater, which would be a good safety tip. But our fingers are going to grow longer. We're going to get webbed fingers, webbed toes.

PAT: Webbed feet.

GLENN: Webbed feet, and a new eye lid so we can see --

STU: That sounds awesome. Getting around quicker in the water.

PAT: Plus, we're not going to die. We're just going to adapt. We're going to evolve, right? So what's the problem?

GLENN: So what's the problem? Oh, the earth is going to be -- no, we'll all be living, we'll just be living like Aquaman. This is just crazy. That's one of the craziest things I've ever heard.

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: And he says it with a straight face. And the -- and the academic community is like, "Yes, we're going to develop webbed feet."

PAT: Webbed feet and webbed hands.

GLENN: Because we'll all be living underwater. Oh, my gosh. Don't they see it? They just don't see it, do they?

STU: It's kind of embarrassing.

GLENN: It really is.

STU: It's kind of embarrassing that they will go to these lengths. Again, it kind of disproves their own thesis. The point is, we'll all die and there will be no humanity left. No, I thought we were going to evolve.

GLENN: We're going to progress. We're going to progress into something even better. It's progress.

STU: There you go. Can you imagine if a conservative said this. Look, yeah, there might be some global warming, but we're going to get gills. We're going to get a third eyelid.

GLENN: Can you imagine? How do you say that except to a group of maybe first graders who will accept that? Who accepts that, that we're going to grow longer fingers, webbed feet, webbed toes, and a third eyelid? Come on.

STU: It's just another in the series of scare tactics. Oh, my God. We're going to get webbed feet. I don't want webbed feet for my children. We need to make America great again. No more webbed feet.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.

Just like the left did in Georgia, Democrats and the media are now insisting that Texas' new proposed voting laws are a racist threat to democracy. But this time, instead of actually letting democracy play out through a vote, Democrats in the state legislature walked out and stopped the democratic process.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere take a look at the voting bill — which Democrats say is racist because it keeps early voting polls closed on Sundays until 1 o'clock to allow for poll workers to attend church — and explain why they believe the backlash is just another ridiculous display of hypocrisy from the left.

Ever since he was in high school, Rishi Sharma has dedicated his life to making sure that the stories of our World War II veterans are never forgotten. He's spent countless hours interviewing these men and documenting their firsthand experiences on his YouTube channel, "Legends of WWII" — and the timing couldn't be any better.

Rishi joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to warn that "they don't teach World War II in school any more, and what they do cover is 'brainwashing' young Americans to "hate our country, to hate our veterans, and our way of life."

"I can honestly tell you they don't teach World War II in school anymore. What they do cover is how 'bad' the U.S. was," Rishi told Glenn.

"I mean, people are being brainwashed nowadays. The younger generations are being brainwashed to hate our country, to hate our veterans, and our way of life. It's not right, and I don't want to see it happen any further. That's why I'm recording these stories of what these veterans actually went through, the atrocities that they came across. Whoever has that footage, is going to be able to control the narrative."

Rishi went on to share some of the shocking accounts of what really went on during WWII, which he learned through interviewing more than 1,100 veterans, and the devastating results of anti-American propaganda both then and now.

Watch the video clip below for more details, because we need these firsthand accounts now more than ever to teach our kids the truth:
