People Would Give Up Alcohol to Impeach Trump—But What About Climate Change?

A study by detox.net shows that 73.3% of Democrats would give up alcohol for the rest of their lives if President Trump would be impeached tomorrow. Seventeen percent of Republicans said the same.

Hmm, so how about climate change? Was anyone willing to put their whiskey where their mouth is? Absolutely! Twenty-three percent of Democrats would top drinking to end catastrophic, end-of-the-world climate change.

"Wait, so only 23 percent . . . these people believe that this is the end of the world, that this is going to destroy all of us and kill us and kill the planet --- every animal, every tree and every living being in 100 years will be dead --- but only 23 percent of the men and 17 percent of the women say I'm willing to give up alcohol to do that? Wow, how selfish or how little you actually believe," Glenn said.

If it's the end of the world, maybe they just want to go out with a buzz. Bottoms up!

GLENN: Welcome to it. We've got an amazing feud going on now with tweets between Mika and Donald Trump that is just -- I mean, it's a soap Oprah. It is -- our life has become a soap opera. And I want to give you this amazing study. How many people would give up alcohol to see Donald Trump impeached?

If you saw this yesterday, you might have heard that 73.3 percent of Democrats say they would give up alcohol for the rest of their life, if it meant that President Trump would be impeached tomorrow. 73.3. 17 percent of Republicans said they would give up alcohol for the rest of their life.

Now, one more. And then I got to take a break and get to the real news.

The media, if the media stopped writing negative things about President Trump, 6.5 percent of Democrats said they would give up alcohol forever. And 30.6 percent of Republicans said they would give up alcohol forever.

Now, that was what made the headlines. But that was only one of the questions -- or, two of the questions that they asked these people. Would you give up alcohol, if?

When you read the entire study, oh, we learn so very much about the left and the right and men and women. We get to that when we come back.

(OUT AT 9:30AM)

GLENN: All right. There's two stories that I -- we've got to get to, before the top of the hour. We have a great show, if you just joined us. Thank you so much for listening.

I want to -- I want to give you the story that maybe you read, just the headline. And you passed. You shouldn't have. Or maybe what source you were reading only gave you part of the story. They shouldn't have.

This is a fantastic story. Here's how many people would give up alcohol to see Donald Trump impeached. Now, they -- researchers asked, will you give up alcohol for the rest of your life if, first question, President Trump would be impeached tomorrow? 73 percent of Democrats and 17 percent of Republicans said yes.

First of all, I don't believe them at all. As a guy who is a recovering alcoholic, not a chance in the world.

JEFFY: No way.

GLENN: But 73 percent said -- remember this number. 73 percent said yes.

The next question was, would you give up alcohol for the rest of your life if the media stopped writing negative things about President Trump?

6.5 percent of Democrats said yes. 30.6 of Republicans said yes.

I thought that was an impressive number because it shows that the majority of Republicans don't want to shut the press down. Either that, or they just really love alcohol.

Now, here's where the story gets good. Because this was a survey about the greater good.

Will you give up something that is almost impossible to give up for the greater good?

And this is where the rubber meets the road. For instance, I'm in a -- I'm in a faith that we don't drink coffee. And, you know, people will say, "Oh, man. I just -- I, you know, have really watched you and your faith and, you know, talked to you about it. And it's really great. But I could just never give up coffee."

I'm like, "Well, then you -- you don't really understand. You don't really understand." Because if it's like, "God or coffee?" Hmm. And, you know, and that's not really the choice. But --

PAT: Well, I mean, Folgers instant crystals are the richest, most aromatic kind of coffee.

GLENN: Gee, Jim doesn't have a second cup at home. I mean, it's crazy. It's crazy. So when you're asking, will you give up alcohol for the rest of your life and 73 percent say yes, A, I don't believe you. Second, that's quite a commitment. You really must believe in it.

So what else do you really believe in? Listen to these.

If you -- would you give up alcohol for the remainder of your life if it meant stopping global climate change?

Now, they didn't break it out left and right, which I would have loved to see.

STU: Oh.

PAT: Me too.

GLENN: I know. I know. They broke this one up, men and women. Halting global climate change, 23 percent of men said yes. 17 percent of women said yes.

Wait. So only 23 percent, who these people believe that this is the end of the world? That this is going to destroy all of us and kill us and kill the planet, every animal, every tree, and every living being in 100 years will be dead, but only 23 percent of the men and 17 percent of the women say I'm willing to give up alcohol, to do that? Wow, how selfish or how little you actually believe.

STU: That's amazing. I mean, this is -- they say this is a bigger threat than terrorism. Than global nuclear war.

GLENN: Yes. I will tell you -- and the dinner I had last night, there was a -- a foreigner there at the table. And I don't want to give any details about these people because, you know, in their circles, they could be identified. And we had a private conversation last night. So I don't want to quote anybody. And I don't want to reveal who was there. But I will tell you that this person who is not from America or North America, was so passionate about global warming. I mean, almost -- almost wept, I think, about how -- how much danger we are in because of global warming. And people truly believe that, or so they say. But that's the number? 23 percent of Americans would say they would give up alcohol to stop it?

It seems pretty selfish. But wait. There's more.

How many people would give up alcohol if ten children in another country would gain access to clean drinking water?

(chuckling)

GLENN: Okay. You'll give up alcohol for the rest of your life, which really means nothing. It really means nothing. You'll give up -- if ten children in another country could have clean, non-poison water.

PAT: And how often have we heard, if it saves one person.

GLENN: Just one. Just one.

PAT: Just one, isn't it worth it?

GLENN: Just one. Listen to this. Men, 35.1 percent. Now, you would think, okay. Well, that's guys. Uh-huh.

Women, 19.3.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That's kind of disturbing, that men are more willing to give up alcohol than women are, to save children.

How about this one? Would you give up alcohol for the rest of your life -- now, think of this -- if it would save the life of a stranger?

36 percent said yes.

STU: Thirty --

GLENN: Of men.

PAT: What?

GLENN: Women web 25.8.

STU: It's lower for women?

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

PAT: On both the stranger and the children? That's pretty amazing. Pretty amazing.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Okay. There's one more.

Stu, I'm going to give you this survey. And I want you to go in and look at it for tomorrow's show because there's a reason they didn't do left and right. Why did they stop breaking it up on Democrats and Republicans? My guess is -- because this was reported in the Huffington Post. My guess is -- and I could be wrong -- that it shows that there are more Republicans that would save the life of children, et cetera, et cetera.

PAT: I bet that's true.

GLENN: I could be wrong. I could be wrong. But look into it.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Okay. So saving the life of one stranger, 36 percent of men. 25 percent of women. Ten children in another country gain access to clean and safe water, 35 percent of men, 19 percent of women. Halting global climate change is the lowest so far. Ten points -- actually 12 points behind everything else, men 23 percent, women 17. And here's the kicker: I just -- would you give up alcohol for the rest of your life if it meant that tomorrow we would discover the cure for cancer?

Now, I would think that number would be yes to everyone, except an alcoholic, who was like, I'd try. But I can't guarantee. Right?

PAT: Yes. Yeah.

GLENN: Cure for cancer, tomorrow, 7.6 percent of men, 5.6 percent of women.

STU: Wait. What? No.

PAT: That is unbelievable.

JEFFY: That's not possible. That can't be right.

STU: That can't be right.

GLENN: Okay. Well --

PAT: That's unbelievable.

GLENN: I know. Look it up. It is a --

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: It is a survey of 1,000 people, detox.net. Check it out, Stu. And give me the report on that tomorrow.

PAT: Is it because they don't believe that by giving up alcohol, that will make a --

GLENN: No, you have to have a suspension -- you have to have a suspension of belief anyway. You know, it's like these people who go to Star Wars, eh, I don't think so.

PAT: That can't happen.

GLENN: There's no animals like that.

That was your problem?

Glenn Beck: Rand Paul was RIGHT to say Dr. Fauci LIED about gain-of-function

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.
