Pat's Clock Boy Edition of 'Happy Days Are Here Again'

Freedom of speech is alive and well in the state of Texas. Yesterday, a judge threw out a frivolous lawsuit filed by clock boy against Glenn and TheBlaze. If you'll remember, Ahmed Mohamed took a clock project to school which closely resembled a bomb. Glenn and crew had originally supported Ahmed --- until they saw the clock themselves.

"We reported it, and we reported it accurately on this program. And yesterday, the judge threw that case out," Glenn said.

In celebration, co-host Pat Gray gave a screeching, clock boy rendition of Happy Days Are Here Again.

GLENN: Hello, America. And welcome to the Glenn Beck Program. We are waiting now for a news conference with president-elect Trump on this -- the latest on this back and forth with Russia. We have spent two hours talking about it today, trying to look at it logically. We can't make heads or tails of this. It doesn't ever lead anyplace good. And we don't buy into all the stuff that it says about Donald Trump. We'll see what he has to say and see if he can bring any reason to any of this. As he comes out, we will do that. Also, I understand we have some good news. We'll get to there, right now.

(music)

PAT: Yeah, we're waiting for the Donald Trump press conference here which is coming up in a second. But first, we got some really good news before we get to that.

GLENN: May I read -- this is from the court yesterday.

On this day, court considered the anti-SLAPP motion to dismiss, motion to dismiss by defendants, TheBlaze Inc and Glenn Beck collectively, TheBlaze parties, pursuant to Chapter 27 -- blah, blah. After considering the motion to dismiss any responses and replies thereto, any supporting or official affidavits -- blah, blah, blah -- the motion to dismiss is granted.

Therefore, ordered, the motion to dismiss filed by TheBlaze parties is in all things granted in its entirety.

PAT: This is in the clock kid. Ahmed, the clock kid. Clockmed, we called him a few times. Allegedly, Clockmed. We allegedly --

GLENN: So this was -- so what an anti-SLAPP is in the United States -- or, I mean, in Texas, which really is the United States now, is a -- a remedy that people can take if your First Amendment rights are being questioned to stop really kind of frivolous lawsuits.

STU: Yeah, basically a frivolous lawsuit defense, allegedly.

PAT: If you remember right, it was the kid who went to school with the clock. And he said it was a clock. It looked like a bomb. And originally, we were pissed off at the school district.

GLENN: We were for him.

PAT: We were for the kid. We were defending the kid, and then we saw the picture of it. We were like --

STU: Of course, they thought it was a bomb.

PAT: -- of course, they thought it was a bomb. It looks just like one.

GLENN: Right. And we also then heard that he was told by a teacher, "Hey, don't bring this into other -- don't show this to anybody. It looks like a bomb." And so he didn't do the first degree lookalike weapon. He used common sense and said, "Hey, put that away. Don't do that anymore. Another teacher won't be so cool with that." And they weren't. And he kept doing it, almost as if he was trying to --

PAT: Almost as if.

GLENN: Yeah, we don't know if that's what it was.

PAT: It allegedly looked that way in our humble opinions.

GLENN: We reported it. And we reported it accurately on this program. And yesterday, the judge threw that case out.

PAT: Fortunately, showing that apparently freedom of speech is still alive. Right?

GLENN: However, I will say that the First Amendment is not real healthy.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And we have not talked about the other court case that we settled in Boston. And we will. So you know, I settled that case, but I settled it with the understanding and the legal ability to open up the entire record of the case. That case is not sealed.

And we did settle for a small sum of money because it was going to go all the way to the Supreme Court. It should have. But it would have probably cost me $5 million. Instead, I settled it with it unsealed because we're going to present this to you and show you exactly what happened in the Boston bombing case. There is something very wrong, and it has little to do with the guy who was suing me, and everything to do with the United States government, which was the point in the first place.

PAT: But in this particular case --

GLENN: It's over.

PAT: A little celebration is appropriate. Because...

(music)

PAT: Allegedly.

GLENN: Not at all. He didn't say that at all.

PAT: He just didn't put it right. But he did throw out the case!

(laughter)

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

PAT: So we actually won. Actually won.

STU: I have some documents that show that his mom was a especially proud, more than other relatives.

PAT: And his mom was allegedly, especially proud!

GLENN: You know what's amazing about that case is the amount of stuff that was sent from people like Zuckerberg and everybody else, when it turns out that that wasn't exactly what happened, that that's not -- and the judge is, you know -- because he sued I don't even know how many people. His family has come back and sued everybody.

STU: Yeah. (inaudible) Ben Ferguson.

PAT: Looking for a payout.

GLENN: We're the second case to be dismissed, and there's a line of people that are going to court.

PAT: You know who else has been dismissed? Do you know or can you say?

GLENN: No, I don't know. I don't remember. But there were two -- we were in court with two of the people.

PAT: I think the mayor of Irving is still involved, right? She's still wrapped up in this.

GLENN: But we still have court cases. And I think it's the same argument. I don't know. I'm not involved in anyone else's --

PAT: It's ridiculous.

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.
