GLENN: The people who are running this country, they're on a train to crazy town.

Let me give you the example. This is from the front page of today's Wall Street Journal. As the mile-high city gears up to host Democratic bash for 50,000 organizers, they are discovering the perils of trying to stage a political spectacle that is also politically correct. Wait until you hear this. Consider the fanny packs. The host committee for the Democratic National Convention wanted 15,000 fanny packs for volunteers but they had to be made from organic cotton, but they also needed to be made by organized labor, but they also needed to be made in the United States of America. Official merchandiser Bob DeMasse scoured the country. He says, that doesn't exist. Ditto for the baseball caps. We have union made caps, we have made in America caps, and we have organic caps, but we don't have something that is all three.

Now, I get to this part of the story and I highlight it and I think to myself, I don't think I need anymore. This is what these people are worried about? How much are you paying for gas? This is what they're worried about, whether their fanny packs come from organic cotton? You've got to be kidding me, right? I'm about to put it down but then something inside of me says no, no, no, there's got to be more. Oh, and yes, there is. There's a lot more. Try this one. They want to have balloons, but they need to make sure that the balloons are biodegradable. So they're looking for biodegradable balloons. Uh-huh. They also want to have air conditioning but they're worried about air conditioning because air conditioning isn't green. You've got to be kidding me. You're worried about balloons and air conditioning units?

What they've done on the balloon front is they bought the advertised, quote/unquote advertised biodegradable balloons and then they have taken them -- this is the Democratic National Committee. They have taken them and put a bunch of them in a steaming compost heap. The woman who was doing this was hired by the DNC's official carbon advisor. I'm about to lose my mind. May I just ask, is it just me, the official carbon advisor. Gang, I got news for you. I don't care if you're in the bakery business, I don't care if you sell cars, I don't care if you make cars out of hemp. You're going to have an official carbon advisor. Get used to that phrase.

So the official carbon advisor is with the person who is wearing the biodegradable balloons to test them and they are measuring the greenhouse gas emissions for every placard, every plane trip, every appetizer, every cup of coffee is going to be tested. The Democrats hope to pay penance for those emissions by investing in renewable energy products. So in other words, they are testing how many carbon units does it take to make this cup of coffee. They will test it and then they will pay in carbon credits. Some might say, what, are you insane? Others that are a little more tolerant than I am say, why don't you guys just stay home and do it all on the Internet. Just take everybody in. Technology is there. Everybody can just log online. You can have your little convention over the Internet. You really want to make a statement? There's a statement for you. Costs too much. It harms the Earth too much to fly. The carbon credit is just moving wealth from one pocket to the other. If you really care about the planet, we're all going to die in this horrible fiery flood, why have balloons? We don't need balloons. They're testing balloons. To police, the story goes on, to police the four-day event, August 25th through the 28th, they are assembling via paperless online sign-up a trash brigade decked out in green shirts, I hope that they're organic cotton shirts made by the union and in the United States. Decked out in green shirts, the 900 volunteers will hover at waste disposal stations. Is that a garbage can? I don't even know anymore. Is a waste disposal station, is that a garbage can? The 900 volunteers will hover at waste disposal stations to make sure delegates put each scrap of trash in the proper bin. Lest a fork slip through the wrong container unnoticed, volunteers will have to paw through every bag of garbage before it's hauled away. That's the only way to make sure it's pure, says a DNC spokesperson. May I again ask the question? Is it just me?

Let me ask a second question. How much are you paying for gas again? The Democrats -- it goes on. The Democrats are offering menus called Lean and Green. There are guidelines for the food now being served at the DNC. Among the guidelines, no fried food. And on the theory that nutritious food is more vibrant -- ready for this? On the theory that nutritious food is more vibrant, each meal -- this is according to the DNC guidelines -- each meal must include the following color, red, green, yellow, blue/purple and white. Garnishes don't count. May I again ask, is it just me? Am I alone? Is anybody else reading this and thinking, Good Lord, the only thing they haven't said yet is if you don't have red, green, yellow, blue, purple, and white on the plate, you're a racist. At least 70% of the ingredients should be organic and locally grown to minimize emissions from fuel burn during transportation. Well, why only 70%? Why not have all of it? You know, you can't have salt. Salt comes from sometimes the other side of the planet. Sea salt? What, are you raping the ocean of its precious minerals?

One would think, says Mr. Burns, that the Democrats in Denver have a bigger fish to bake. They've ruled out frying color coordinated pretzel planners. Democrats say the point is to build habits that will endure long after the convention. Can I tell you something? I could attend this but I'm never having a, what was it, carbon, official carbon advisor? I'm never hiring one of those people. I'm never going to ask any of my employees to paw through all of the trash, lest a fork slip through. I'm not going to make sure my garbage is pure. I'm just going to pretty much say, yeah, pretty close; haul it away. I'm never going to coordinate my plates to make sure, because I'm not going to test out the theory that nutritious food is more vibrant. If it looks good, I'll take it. Democrats say the point is to build habits that will endure long after the convention. To that end, the city has staged greening workshops attended by hundreds of caterers, restaurant owners and hotel managers. The mayor of Denver says it's the new patriotism. May I just point out something here? You know the Prius? The eco friendly car? I'm called a hate monger if I don't like Priuses. If I don't want an eco friendly car, I will kill the Earth, I'm a bad person, I need to be penalized, I need to be shut down, I can't say anything. My opinion doesn't count. My opinion is just ill informed. I'm stupid. I'm in the pocket of big oil, if I don't want to drive a Prius. If you imagine if, let's say the Bush administration would have said right after September 11th, something that he should have said, we're going to get off of foreign oil and the best way to get off of foreign oil is to reduce our consumption immediately and that's why I'm introducing this car over here. It's the Geo Metro. Well, that's what you might think, but we've renamed it. We're calling it the Geo Patriot. It's a patriotic car because it gets 50 miles per gallon. It's the new Geo Patriot. Can you imagine what Hollywood would have said if we would have said this is a patriotic car, gets you off of foreign oil. The left would have gone crazy: How dare you tell me what's patriotic. I'm tired of being told what's patriotic and what's not patriotic. Yet, the left can say the same damn thing. But, you know, it's not about the country. See, that's what makes them better than us. They care about the whole world, not just the country. They care about the entire planet and all of God, if he existed, all of God's children. Not just Americans. You small minded pea brain moron. You only care about the country. You and your patriotic car.

I would have never been able to get away with it. The President could have never gotten away with it. Hollywood would have come out and made a mockery out of the patriotic Geo, the new Geo Patriot, yet it's the same thing. It's the same damn thing that they're doing here.

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.

Black Lives Matter protesters sent a shocking, threatening letter to businesses and non-profits in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter made a series of demands related to racial reparations, and threatened consequences if the demands weren't met, the Daily Wire reported.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed the letter's list of demands and threats, and pointed out that these tactics are strikingly similar to those we've seen during some of history's darkest chapters.

The letter, which was sent to businesses in the East Market District in downtown Louisville, listed demands such as ensuring that at least 23% of staff are black, providing race and inclusion training for all employees, displaying a written statement professing support for the BLM movement, buying at least 23% of inventory from black retailers, and submitting to external audit.

"Repercussions for non-compliance" to these demands will result in sit-ins and protests being staged outside the business, social media smear campaigns, boycotts, negative media attention, and "invasive reclamation," the letter threatened.

"So, I'm making quite a charge here, but I think it absolutely fits," Glenn said on the show. "Carl Kaufman, the representation that was used by Hitler and his machine, he convinced the youth that they were the answer, they would finally take control, and they would bring equality. [Kaufman said] the Jews controlled everything, and because of the Jews, the Germans really didn't have any freedom. Because of the Jews, they couldn't do anything. They were held down by the Jews. He said, 'We're going to have to boycott those stores. And if those stores don't comply, we will keep our storm troopers outside of the doors.' And they did. They intimidated anyone who walked into those stores. They berated anyone who walked into those stores. They beat anyone who walked into those stores."

"I told you once, that if America goes dark, we'll become the darkest nation ever in the history of the world," Glenn continued. "Guys, we're allowing our nation to go dark. And we're doing it because of fear. Everybody knows this is wrong, but who is going to stand up against it?"
