Glenn interviews McCain

GLENN: Senator John McCain is with me. Hello, senator, how are you, sir?

SENATOR McCAIN: Hello, Glenn, you rascal, how are you?

GLENN: I'm very good. Listen, I want to start with just a tough question for you. You know that I and I have our differences but I appreciate the fact that you are always a straight talker. So if you don't mind, I want to ask you the toughest question first and that is

SENATOR McCAIN: Okay.

GLENN: Have you checked your tire pressure today?

SENATOR McCAIN: You know, I was just going to go out early and check and, you know, we're on the bus today and I've got to do that and

GLENN: Do you know we could

SENATOR McCAIN: I have a my tire, my pressure gauge says Obama's energy plan.

GLENN: Right. Do you know that if you just, on that big huge bus, if you did that and checked your windshield wiper fluid, we could kiss Saudi Arabia goodbye by Tuesday?

SENATOR McCAIN: All our problems would be over, my friend. I don't know why I didn't think of that.

GLENN: I know. You're not doing your part.

SENATOR McCAIN: Do you think that the tire gauge thing is naive, it's a lie, or just one of the dumbest things you've ever heard come out of somebody's mouth?

SENATOR McCAIN: I just think it's a lack of understanding of the energy crisis in America, the fact that Americans are still paying $4 a gallon for gas and that, of course, ask AAA or anybody else will tell you obviously we should inflate our tires. But that's not an energy policy. That's a public service announcement. That's what it is.

GLENN: Barack Obama said that we have to break our oil addiction and it will take nothing less this is a quote nothing less than a complete transformation of our economy.

SENATOR McCAIN: Oh, my.

GLENN: I mean, you know, I don't know if that's necessarily a good idea.

SENATOR McCAIN: It's going to require, as I've seen you talk about, an "All of the above" approach. Wind, solar, nuclear, offshore drilling, all of the clean coal technology. I'm in Ohio. We're sitting on the world's America sits on the world's largest resources of coal, clean coal technology. Alternate energy. Automobiles that are electric powered. Hybrid. All of the, all of the flex fuel. All of the things we need to do, and nuclear power has got to be, Glenn, a big part of it.

GLENN: How come

SENATOR McCAIN: And he says he doesn't want to store it and he doesn't want to reprocess it. You've got to do that, the spent nuclear fuel. You've got to do it.

GLENN: You know, how come the American people or do you think I I think they are actually starting to wake up to this. For instance, Nancy Pelosi by the way, do you have a copy of her new book?

SENATOR McCAIN: No, I haven't, but I know you read it cover to cover.

GLENN: Yeah oh, no, no, it's fantastic. I bought all 2,000 copies that were sold. Nancy Pelosi is saying, you know, we're not going to drill but she's telling the Democrats if you are in trouble in your own district, you go ahead and say, well, I want to drill, I'm for that. These guys, these guys are lying to the American people about what their real intentions are. Do you believe that or not?

SENATOR McCAIN: 9%, 9% approval rating of congress. The cynicism is justified. Look, the thing that Americans are mad about and my Republican friends led by John Bainer and the house are saying, look, allow a vote, allow a vote. Americans, overwhelming majority of Americans want to drill offshore. So allow a vote on it. Let's let the Democratic instead they shut down and they go on a five week vacation, a five week vacation while Americans are paying $4 a gallon for gas. I mean, you can't make it up. You can't make it up. My session, I'm going to call them back into session and say stay there until you get something done for a change.

GLENN: Look over the horizon for me. Tell me if America doesn't change its energy policies now and at least engage in transitional drilling for a very long time. Look over the horizon. What does America look like, what does Russia look like, what role does everybody play if we follow a plan of not drilling and not going for any kind of oil or our own energy and nuke power?

SENATOR McCAIN: First let me comment, what do you think Saddam Hussein would be doing if oil were $125 or $130 or $140 a barrel, by the way? I think America looks more and more dependent, I think Russia becomes more and more aggressive in the, quote, near abroad. Georgia, Ukraine, the Baltic countries and others. Notice that they cut the oil flow to the Republic, Czech Republic after they made an agreement with us on missile defense. There's no doubt that these countries are not only emboldened but they are able to engage in more aggressive activity. And finally, to state the obvious, $700 billion a year to countries that don't like us very much. And it's a fact that some of that money goes into the hands of terrorist organizations. I mean, that's published, published facts. So it's an economic, it's climate, environmental and it is a national security issue. Americans are ready to go on this, Glenn. Thanks for all you've been talking about. Americans are ready to drill offshore, they're ready for nuclear power. Why should it take the French five years to build a nuclear power plant and us ten, fifteen, twenty? There's no excuse for that.

GLENN: Will you consider Paris Hilton as your vice president?

SENATOR McCAIN: I think that she's got you've got a great sense of humor. I think it's hilarious. I think it's hilarious.

GLENN: John McCain, hold on just a second. Thank you for being on the program. Back in a flash.

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.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
