Glenn Beck: Close Guantanamo Bay?


GLENN: Cut the music off for just a second. I want to set the tone here for this and I want you to know if you have children in the car with you that you should turn the radio off just for a few minutes because what you are about to hear is extraordinarily shocking. It is quite frankly makes me rethink my position. You know that I am a supporter of Guantanamo. I am somebody who supports not torture and, you know, hey, just everybody let's go torture people. But in a situation like you see on "24" where we think that there is a nuke in a city and we have some people that we think have some information and there is a time, a ticking clock. You know what? I have quite honestly, up until now, been for it. And then this video and audio is released. Can we put enough disclaimers on this in the newsletter today, Dan? I don't want to include this in the newsletter at unless it has explicit warnings.

DAN: Well, we can do the same thing we did, if you remember with the severed head photo that we -- we can do the similar setup of that.

GLENN: I want something that has a significant warning on this because this is describing what happened to one prisoner in Guantanamo. This is actual audio of the torture that was happening again. This is -- I am not making this up. This is a 21-year-old that went to Guantanamo at 16 because he threw a hand grenade and killed a U.S. soldier and this is the audio just released at Guantanamo. It is not for the fainthearted. I think I've given it enough warning. Here it is.

(Audio playing).

GLENN: Okay, stop for just a sec. Stu, can you translate here? What is he saying?

STU: He's saying, Dan, I think has the --

DAN: I don't think it's the exact transcript but basically what he's saying is he's lifting up his shirt and saying wounds he received in Afghanistan but he has not received medical and he's been asking for medical and he's just not getting the medical help. He's not healing well.

GLENN: I'm going to try to go back in and listen some more. Go ahead.

(Audio plays).

GLENN: Stop just a second. The voice there is of a foreigner. He's a Canadian and one of the damn people who are torturing this man relentlessly. As you now hear the victim received wounds in Afghanistan and has not received medical treatment. And you can see the nonopen, nonseemingly wounded man there with his shirt up. And then you hear the interrogator say, "I'm not a doctor, but it looks like you're doing fine." And then it continues.

(Audio plays.)

GLENN: He's crying. Do you hear him crying? Stop, stop, stop. Hear the Guantanamo victim. Thank God that those who are against Guantanamo have released this audio. By the way, that's important to know it's not our government releasing this audio. This is from a hidden camera. Thank goodness somebody took a hidden camera. Now, now we hear the victim say, I have no eyes, I've lost my eyes. And it gets worse from there.

(Audio plays).

GLENN: Stop. Stop, did you hear that? "I've lost my eyes. I've lost my feet.' We have poked this man's eyes out and cut off his feet. And what does the interrogator say?

(Audio plays).

GLENN: Stop, stop. Trying to make it sound like those eyes that are in his head are the eyes that he started with and the feet that he has weren't cut off, weren't some sort of governmental plastic feet but the actual feet that God gave him -- sorry, Allah gave him -- and what does he say? No, your feet are still there, your eyes are still there, only to hear the pore torture victim say, "No, no, they're not." How long is this going to continue. How do we live with our self? How do we tell people that they have eyes when they clearly know they don't have eyes? When we say, you've got feet. Look, I can see your feet, everybody can see the feet, look, it's going to be on the hidden video. You've got feet. Look at your feet. And they know they don't have feet. How much longer will this country tell people with feet that don't believe they have feet that they have feet! I hope somebody in the media, I hope, damn it, somebody in the media will cover this.

VOICE: Tonight on frontline you've heard the shocking allegations from Guantanamo Bay but you haven't heard them all. Frontline's latest investigation reveals the most shocking allegations yet, so shocking it will shock your body to the core and leave you in a state of... shock. Not only did guards on several occasions refuse to smile at the terrorist prisoners, they even gazed at them with apparent disdain. Nutrition is also being denied. Frontline interviews prisoners whose repeated requests for a large box of doughnut holes from the local Dunkin' Donuts fell on deaf ears even though the officers' records indicate they can hear just fine. Frontline learned that many times they even asked with a polite, "Pretty please." Perhaps the most shocking revelation of all is the fact that this blatant disregard for human rights is seeping out of Guantanamo Bay and dripping back into the United States. Frontline has exclusive videotape evidence of police officers in uniform and off duty not being overly friendly. That's right, some of the video clips even show these so-called protectors of peace not holding doors, failing to use a blinker signal and almost littering. It's all coming out.

Plus, more torture on the home front. How secret government covert agents are planning to torture tens of thousands of people in 350 movie theatres nationwide tomorrow. How will they do it? Hint: With a pasty wide loud mouth conservative talk host who boasts a proclivity for fatty foods and the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It's all tonight on Frontline.

GLENN: All right, you sick twisted freak. We are in the movie theatres tomorrow night, live performance, 350 theatres nationwide. You can grab your tickets online at That, and then we're also in Dallas tomorrow night. That's where the live performance is happening and you'll see it in movie theatres. And then Friday you can see it live and in person in Houston and Saturday we wrap up the tour in the Columbia.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

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."
