Weather Channel founder suing Gore?


Weather Channel founder John Coleman advocates suing Al Gore to expose 'the fraud of global warming'

GLENN: All right. Now there's a couple of other things that are going on. John Coleman, you know him. He's the guy who started the Weather Channel. He's been on with us several times before. He's great. I love him because, look, he's just a normal guy. He started the Weather Channel. He was just, you know, a teeny weather guy for years and years. He's a climatologist, and he's listening to stuff and he just pops a blood vessel and says, "I can't take it anymore." Well, the good news today is that John Coleman is suing -- John, are you suing Al Gore yourself?

COLEMAN: I'm not launching any lawsuits but I'm asking the question that if Al Gore knows that CO2 forcing, that is, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from our fossil fuels, is not causing global warming, isn't he committing financial fraud when he sells carbon credits to people to offset their use of fossil fuels and putting carbon dioxide in the atmosphere? I've asked the question and believe me, a lot of people were really interested in that question. And I --

GLENN: But Al Gore doesn't ever answer any questions.

COLEMAN: Well, he is going to have to answer this one because I have found that I am not alone and that's the wonderful thing that's going on here in New York is that 500 of us from all over the world who are climate change skeptics are together for a conference for the first time and I'm discovering that there are numerous people in this group who are working on just that concept of getting this carbon credits scam into court. And think what that would mean if Al Gore scientists and our skeptical scientists are to go into a court, their documentations, you know, had to meet the legal requirements, they had to take the witness stand. Now we would really get down to the facts.

GLENN: John, may I --

COLEMAN: That's just great.

GLENN: John, I'm sorry that I missed you yesterday. In fact, Stu and I are going over for part of the conference here in a couple of hours because we're going to take a break before we do the live television show tonight at 7:00 to 9:00 but I'm sorry I missed you. But let me ask you this question. I think a lot of these scientists that I have met at the global warming centers conference if you will, or skeptics, I think a lot of them are living in a fairy, in some sort of fairy village because they actually think that this can be stopped at this point. I really don't think, with Joe -- I mean, with John McCain, with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama all talking about caps in trades, all talking about, you know, making sure that they start paying homage to the UN on global climate control, all of them are talking about extra fines and paying for every bit of CO2. This is a giant income tax scheme or tax scheme. That's all it is. How do you think it's going to be stopped in time, especially after the election with a progressive congress and all three candidates promising they will do it? This will be the first thing on their agenda.

COLEMAN: I understand exactly what you're saying, Glenn, and I have been very reticent to predict that we would have any success prior to this conference, but I see at this conference a real unity and I see the sign of this coming aboard. Now, scientists aboard is one thing. The media aboard is another. And as you know, the vast majority of the media has totally ignored us. You have been one of the wonderful exceptions and there are a few others but for the most part the mainstream media has totally ignored us and our cause, but I think we are beginning, just beginning to penetrate and that's the real key. The politicians are going to follow public opinion, and public opinion is going to be set by the media and we have to crack open the media first.

GLENN: I don't -- I'm telling you, John, I don't think -- I mean, I just think -- here, I heard a prediction from Al Gore. Stu, when was this? About a year ago, where he said 2009 is going to be our year. He knew that it was going -- that we were going to have the progressive congress that we're going to have, he knew, you know, that most likely at the time it was going to be Hillary Clinton who would have been, you know, somebody who put you through. But now we've got people on each side of Hillary Clinton. All of them are going to do the same thing. We're quickly running out of time. And I asked the audience, here we are broadcasting all across America. There is a major global warming conference happening here in New York City, with some of the top scientific minds in the country. And also I'm going to be real honest with you, also a couple of crackpots but I mean, that's the way -- it's a conference. You can come and I mean, I've been to places where you're like, oh, boy. If you've never been to a trade convention, that's what this is. And you're like, oh, boy, avoid this guy like the plague. But some of the greatest scientific minds that are skeptics on global warming are here today. It is a major event. The first of its kind, if I'm not mistaken. And has anybody in the country seen coverage on this on any of the networks besides on my program, in any kind of halfway fair sort of fashion?

COLEMAN: Well, you are exactly right. I've been watching the media here because we came to New York City --

GLENN: Because it's media.

COLEMAN: Because this is where the media, national media headquarters is. And the major networks are just down the street from this hotel. Believe me they haven't walked up the street to see us.

GLENN: One of them is directly across the street.

COLEMAN: It is a huge problem, Glenn, but don't give up. Don't give up.

GLENN: No, I'm not -- look, look. John, I'm not --

COLEMAN: I appreciate everything you're saying, but this week Al Gore had to finally say, had to acknowledge that we just had the coldest year in modern history in the world. For over 12 months the temperature worldwide dropped by an average of 1 degree. Everything it had gained over the last 100 it gave up this year.

GLENN: Okay. Now John --

COLEMAN: And Al Gore had to admit that. We are making progress.

GLENN: I want to ask you this because you are a climatologist or meteorologist?

COLEMAN: I'm a meteorologist.

GLENN: You are a meteorologist. One year does not a trend make but we're now approaching a 10-year cycle where, if I'm not mistaken, the temperature has either stayed the same or gone down. Which is it? Is it gone down, the temperature is starting to fall now?

COLEMAN: There has been no significant increase now in eight years.

GLENN: In eight years? Okay. How many is, how many years has to pass --

COLEMAN: Think about this. If we have runaway global warming as the alarmists have told us, if CO2 has continued to build in the atmosphere through this whole time, we're burning our fossil fuel, CO2 is burning up in the atmosphere. If it were a pollutant, which it is not, if it were the driving force of global warming, which it is not, our temperatures would be climbing and instead they're cooling. We're seeing steadier cooling and their case is falling apart. And we now have almost 500 scientists who have spoken out in the last year calling this global warming a scam. It's coming.

GLENN: You know, I have to tell you, John, I've been so impressed with these guys that I have met because it's not just a science to them. It is not -- I mean, a lot of them are saying the good name of science is --

COLEMAN: Let me tell you the great hurricane forecaster who we always hear forecasting the hurricanes from the University of Colorado made the most marvelous speech at our breakfast this morning. The president of the Czech Republic made an incredibly good speech and totally debunked global warming. These are meaningful important people. How can the media ignore us? How much longer can it ignore us?

GLENN: John Coleman, he is the founder of the Weather Channel and one of the chief guys who just can't take it anymore. God bless you, John. Keep up the fight, my friend.

COLEMAN: I'm madder than hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore!


 

Texas Democratic gubernatorial nominee Robert Francis "Beto" O’Rourke's disgusting and obviously-staged political stunt during a press conference about the Ross Elementary School massacre is just another of the many ways that prove the man is "human trash," Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere agreed on the radio program Thursday.

"Beto is human trash. He is scum. He is the scum of the earth, the lowest form of humanity our society can produce," Stu said in response to a video clip of O'Rourke heckling Gov. Greg Abbott in the middle of an update on the tragic mass killing in Uvalde. "This was obviously staged from the beginning ... clearly planned. Even CBS News pointed it out it was blatantly a staged event. And this guy [O'Rourke], because he wants more power and more money, decided that this event was about him. He wanted to make the [deaths] of 19 children and teachers all about Beto O'Rourke because he is human scum. He is the worst form of life imaginable on this Earth."

Democrats like O'Rourke have been quick to use the tragic deaths of 19 children to advance their own pro-gun law political agendas, particularly "red flag" laws that would empower courts to take guns away from "potentially dangerous" people

"You want a solution? Stop selling AR-15s in the state of Texas. You want a solution? Have universal background checks. We don't have them. You want a solution? Red flag laws or extreme risk protection orders, which stop a shooting before it happens," O'Rourke shouted after being escorted out of the press conference.

Glenn wasn't buying O'Rourke's "righteous indignation," especially as his own resurfaced writings qualify as the "ultimate red flag for any red flag law." As a teen, O'Rourke wrote about hacking, overthrowing the government, and, most disturbingly, murdering children by running over them with his car.

Glenn read an excerpt from a fiction O'Rourke wrote when he was 15 years old:

[O]ne day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams.

As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.

"Dangerous, right? Nothing good's going to come of this. According to Reuters, those are the teenage writings of Beto O'Rourke," Glenn said. "The state of Texas should be very aware and not allow [O'Rourke] to buy a gun because of this. This guy, this guy, and his righteous indignation — give it a rest, bud. Give it a rest."

Texas AG Ken Paxton says gun laws are NOT the answer, urges schools to arm teachers

In the wake of the unspeakably grievous mass murder at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, many on the left are calling for increased gun control measures, but without specifying exactly what legislation could have prevented the horrifying event. Attorney General Ken Paxton says gun laws are not the answer. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail specific measures he believes could stop similar school atrocities in the future: arming teachers.

Paxton told Glenn that Texas has already put laws in place that allow schools to opt in to training and arming teachers as either a marshal or under the guardian program.

"We passed laws when I was in the Texas Senate, I think it was 2013, that would have helped greatly. There's no way that law enforcement can get to every location as fast as they would need to," Paxton said.

Glenn interjected, "I'll tell you, I went to a school where my son was playing football ... and there were signs all over. 'Beware. Teachers are armed. We take the Second Amendment and the protection of our students seriously.' It was so clear — not doing anything here. That's the way to do it."

"Yes," Paxton agreed. "I think that's the way it should be. I mean, these people [shooters], they know they're safe, at least until law enforcement gets there, to accomplish their goals. And we're going to keep seeing this happen until we decide as a state ... to protect these kids," he added.

"It's ridiculous for the Biden administration to suggest that this kid who decided to violate the murder laws would [think], 'Oh. Wait a minute, there's a gun law. I can't do this. I wouldn't violate gun laws.' It's law-abiding citizens that follow the law," Paxton continued. "Second, we have a fentanyl crisis that the Biden administration has presumably invited and we've had over 100, 000 people that overdosed and died from fentanyl. [...] Why isn't the Biden administration so concerned about the hundred and something thousand people that died from overdoses because they opened up the border and allowed fentanyl to come across?"

In the wake of the horrific Buffalo shooting, the left-wing media tried to paint all conservatives as subscribers to “replacement theory” — the idea that immigrants are taking over to such an extent that they will destroy white Western civilization. Of course, no serious conservative believes in this ugly, racist, dangerous ideology, but there is a ton of ACTUAL replacement going on, and it has nothing to do with immigration or racism.

What we saw yesterday in Uvalde, Texas, is more dark horrific evidence of the only replacement theory that ultimately matters because it affects everything. We’ve replaced God in society. Glenn argues it’s why gun control is ultimately useless — even though he completely understands our human impulse to DO something. While our culture has replaced God for rot, the Biden White House and Democrats are also working overtime to replace key elements of American political, legal, economic, and cultural life.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin of “LevinTV” tells Glenn why Media Matters' latest hit job on him over his Uvalde coverage is pathetic. “Stop pushing God out of the public square” is not a radical concept to help prevent evil from taking hold in our schools. He also takes on the Democrats’ attempts to destroy the Supreme Court, voting rights, and the separation of powers.

BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey of “Relatable” tells Glenn why she believes the Uvalde shooting reveals how we are failing young men in this country and what we must do to stop the replacement theory that threatens to keep an entire generation from becoming a benefit to society.

Glenn Beck addressed the incomprehensibly tragic mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on the radio program Wednesday, saying it's time to stop with the politics, from both sides, and focus on healing a nation that is tearing itself apart.

"It pains me to think about the political garbage that has happened in the last 12 hours," Glenn began. "I believe that we are on the verge of losing our nation, and the reason why we're about to lose our nation is the same reason some kid walked into an elementary school and shot and killed people. It's not the guns ... it's our society."

Glenn called the tragedies plaguing our nation' —kids shooting kids, committing suicide, dying from fentanyl, joining gangs, and suffering from depression and loneliness — are symptoms of a greater sickness.

"Where's the value of human life? The hatred that is being poured down our throats, the class division, the racism — make no mistake, it is intentional," he stated. "The best way to destroy a nation is to cut it apart. ... In our society, where are the ethics? What are ethics? It's your truth versus my truth. There is no absolute truth. And in a world where there is no truth, who gets to be God? Well, it depends on which group you're in I guess."

Glenn said America’s underlying problem is "a rotting in our soul" and until we "live in a nation that is willing to even recognize that there is something bigger than the self, and it has nothing to do with government, we'll never fix this problem."

"Let's not make this about Democrats and Republicans. Let's just make this about what the hell is going on because everything in our society is falling apart," he said. "And until you're willing to have that conversation, the rest of it is bullcrap."
