Bachmann's plea


Congressman Michele Bachmann

PAT: All right. Let's go to Michele Bachmann. Michele, welcome to the Glenn Beck program with Pat Gray and Stu.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: Good morning. How are you, Glenn?

PAT: Good morning. We're doing well. Glenn's not doing well. He's not here.

STU: Yeah, congresswoman, he got sick.

PAT: Sick.

STU: And he went home. I think it's because he doesn't have universal healthcare and that's the problem with him. So he's home with his belly hurt.

PAT: Fortunately what you are trying to get the message out for is that there's a really good chance we're all going to have great coverage for free! Right?

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: It's amazing. They have invented a new chocolate cake with no calories. That's kind of the comparison.

PAT: I love that. So now tomorrow, I'm getting the sense, I'm starting to hear pretty good rumblings that there's going to be a lot of people in Washington D.C. tomorrow on the steps of the capitol with you.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: Well, we hope so. This is really the eleventh hour when we're calling people to come to D.C. It's not inevitable that Speaker Pelosi's healthcare government takeover is going to pass. And that's why the number one thing people can do is actually come, see their member of congress, look at them in the eyes, especially with other freedom fighters in tow and let them know that the lessons of honor they should not forget at their peril. Take a look at the elections last night. Take a look at the tea parties and town halls. Speaker Pelosi called those Astroturf, that they were just made up. We know differently. We know people really do believe and embrace in the Constitution and the Declaration. They really do love this country. They love free markets, and they don't want government to have cradle to grave control over their healthcare. So to fight that we're inviting people from all over the United States to take their stand. This is a meet up at the steps of the United States Capitol. It's the west steps. They face the Washington Monument. We're asking people to come be here at noon. Arrive early. We're going to have Jon Voight speaking, also Mark Levin will be speaking. Many others will be up on the platforms and what we're going to do, it's not a rally. It's a press conference and then after that we're unleashing everybody to go and find their members of congress in the Rayburn, Cannon, Longworth buildings. There will be information people can take so they can find their congressmen and go into the capitol. Don't bring your pitchforks. Bring your video cameras. Get these members of congress on camera. Ask them what are you going to do about voting on healthcare, keep your hands up on healthcare. And then post those YouTubes on video. I think about all you need to know about how bad this bill is is that members of congress have exempted themselves from it. It's good enough for you, not good enough for them, and they are only giving you 72 hours to read it. So they obviously are embarrassed of their own bill.

STU: This all seems like a lot of work. I mean, I'm kind of lazy and I feel like this sort of thing, does this actually make a difference to someone in congress?

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: Well, the sad fact is that, you know, keep phoning and keep e mailing and keep visiting their district offices. But it's like these people are tone deaf. They really don't believe it. What they do believe is the sight of a freedom loving American. That scares them more than anything. Take a look at the town halls. Some of them were so afraid, they had to bring police in, they turned people away, they had in one place they had thugs brought in. I mean, they were afraid of normal freedom loving Americans. And I think what we need to do is bring those freedom loving Americans, bring the town halls, bring the tea parties here to Washington to the steps of the U.S. capitol and make our voices heard and then actually go find the members of congress. It was great to have the tea party here on 9/12. It was a beautiful sight. The problem is most members of congress weren't here. And it was a great effort that got attention but now Speaker Pelosi has put the hammer down. She's saying, this is it, you are voting for this thing. But I think the better voice and the louder voice is that of the American people. There is no better voice than the American people. And I think it would be very hard for Democrats to say no to real people who show up at their door.

PAT: Michelle, thanks

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: This is just

PAT: You are breaking up a little bit. But thank you for what you are doing now. Thank you for taking a stand. Thank you for asking the American people to show up and take this step because, you know, I've been hearing the last couple of days, "Well, it doesn't matter. They don't listen." Well, I guarantee you if you don't show up, if you don't do this, then you certainly won't have any impact.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: And this will

PAT: It's really our last chance, is it Mott?

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: It is the last chance because we will vote on it or Friday on Saturday.

PAT: All right.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: There's no question. So it is 11:59. But this is what will be able to kill it. And you can say to your children you were there on that historic day and you made it happen. And if people can't come, go to the district office of your member of congress and senator and call them. At least do that. But please come here if you possibly can. It's a huge ask. It's a huge sacrifice. But remember, the sacrifice that was made for us 233 years ago is incomparable to what we're asking people to do now to be able to transfer freedom to the next generation.

PAT: We're saving the republic. Congressman Michele Bachmann, thanks.

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.
