Glenn Beck: Arizona mystery lights


Mystery lights reported over Phoenix

GLENN:  Okay.  Let's go to Larry Gaydos because there is another story out there.  We can talk about the gas prices, et cetera, et cetera, or the real important story, the aliens.  Larry is here from KTAR in Phoenix.  Larry.

GAYDOS:  Glenn.

GLENN:  Yesterday, a big election was going on and yet the Drudge Report led with a picture of the supposed alien ships that were above Phoenix.

GAYDOS:  Yeah, I'm totally moving out of Arizona.  This happens like every year and I'm freaking out over here.  I'm in a stinking bunker.  I don't even know who won Pennsylvania yesterday.  We've got red lights in the guy, Glenn Beck.  We have four red lights that were hovering over Phoenix.

GLENN:  Did you notice that it looked like a thumb and three fingertips?

GAYDOS:  I did not.

GLENN:  Look at the picture again.  It was like there was a thumb and three fingertips and I thought, you know, only Fred Flintstone has three fingers and a thumb, or aliens.

GAYDOS:  Listen.  I heard it was a trapezoid, it looked like a square, it looked like a diamond, it moved in the sky.  These red lights, they started disappearing one by one.  I do my radio show out in Phoenix.  All these people start calling me.  It's ridiculous.  It happens every month it seems like in Arizona.  We're like the epicenter for the aliens.

GLENN:  Okay.  So you are -- you were actually on the air and it was dark and they saw -- people started seeing these lights in the sky.

GAYDOS:  Yeah.

GLENN:  Did they hover and then move away or did they just hover?

GAYDOS:  All right, this is what I got because I was doing my show.  So I didn't see the lights.  All I knew is that, you know, our phones out in Phoenix at KTAR started completely blowing up.  People wanted to know what was going on.  I'm sitting on the air.  I was talking about Pennsylvania.  I had Hillary by 7.  I was a little bit off.  But apparently they were telling me there were red lights, there were four of them in the north Phoenix sky.  We had a couple of our reporters who called in first and said, hey, something's going on.  I thought they were boosting it up a little bit.  How did I know?  They said they were hovering and they changed shape and people were wondering what it was and that's kind of the information that we had.  I didn't know if it was a Klingon ship or what.  I didn't know.

GLENN:  They have the invisibility cloak.

GAYDOS:  That is true, they have the cloaking device.

GLENN:  Except for lights apparently.  So what are they now saying it is?

GAYDOS:  Well, no explanation from, like, the Deer Valley Airport, no explanation from Sky Harbor, there were no jets flying at Luke Air Force base, the FAA doesn't know what it is.  We got a report late last night, and you'll like this, Glenn.  One dude who lives in Phoenix, some witness, says it was his neighbor.  He says that his neighbor launched several helium balloons with all these flares and, you know, as the balloons get higher, the harder it is to tell what they are but most people don't know what's that it was.  There was no noise from these lights, they were very high in the sky and they are saying no way was this a weather balloon, that's at least one report.  So I have no idea.  We've got illegal aliens in Arizona and we've got little green men watching us in the sky.

GLENN:  Well, wait a minute.  Hang on just a second.  Let me ask you this.


GLENN:  Have you thought of the idea, because I know that where they are building the border fence, it is getting harder and harder to get across.

GAYDOS:  Yeah.

GLENN:  Has anyone considered the idea that just for a better life, small Mexican midgets had flares and a balloon so they could see where they were going and they were flying and floating over that wall and then they are like, oh, crap, the wind caught me; where am I now?  They lit the flare and they are like, oh, Phoenix.  Is that a possibility?

GAYDOS:  See, this is why you're syndicated.  This is why --

GLENN:  I mean, I'm a thinker.  I'm not a --

GAYDOS:  This is not bad, I will tell you.

GLENN:  I'm just saying.  I'm just saying.

GAYDOS:  You're saying that we have folks from Mexico that --

GLENN:  Isn't that more logical really than aliens?

GAYDOS:  I don't know.  I'm taken aback by how brilliant this is now.  This is my whole first few hours right now.

GLENN:  It is more, it is more believable, Larry, than somebody, you know, saying, yeah, I just took some flares, tied them to some balloons; I was having fun.  I mean, what kind of --

GAYDOS:  You know what?  Remember what happened 11 years ago in Phoenix because I've been here 12 years.  We had that Phoenix lights thing, all right?  And that was about, you know, 10 lights.  They were up in the air for three hours.

GLENN:  What do you really think it was, Larry?  What do you really think it was?

GAYDOS:  I have no idea.  I think your idea's probably the most feasible.  I think you're probably right.  I would hate to think that it's like Darth Vader coming to eat my brain.

GLENN:  Oh, come on, man.  Have you been watching -- you know why you think that way?  Because you haven't been watching the election.  You didn't see what -- you weren't following what was going on.  I welcome Darth Vader to come and eat my brain!

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."

RESTORING HOPE: Join Glenn live from Standing Rock Ranch to restore the American covenant

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.
