Glenn Beck: Libs hiding the homeless

Dressing them in boxes; idea #423 on how to hide the homeless...

GLENN: By the way, Bush's approval rating has sunk to 28%, but it's tied with another low that he had back in April. So -- the real children in the race to the bottom is congress. 13% now approval rating for congress. Fantastic. 13%. How do these people get away with it? How does anybody think in congress that they can get away with it? How are they getting -- that's actually -- Stu, can you help me here? I mean, I'm not a political strategist. I'm just a thinker. I can't -- I mean, they are getting away with it.

STU: Yeah, the reason they think they can get away with it is because they think they can continue to get away with it.

GLENN: How, though?

STU: I mean, you know, I think you have a large amount of people that don't pay attention and they are targeted by, I don't want to say one of the parties, but one of the parties.

GLENN: This doesn't sound like a bipartisan --

STU: It's definitely not a bipartisan answer that I'm giving. This does come back to, you know, we can complain about drilling all I want but, I don't know. I do remember from 2000 to 2006 having a Republican President -- and again --

GLENN: And congress that didn't drill. They just spent money.

STU: Again you're right. There were forces that were stopping them. Not like they didn't want to, though.

GLENN: Now, come on, man, let's not -- Stu.

STU: Well, it's true.

GLENN: There were special interest forces that stopped them. They didn't do anything. They were spending money when they were running congress like Paris Hilton in a little dog store just going crazy all the time just spending every dime that we have. Now congress -- now, the Republicans had a spine and a backbone and they stepped to the plate and said enough. When are the Democrats going to do that? Is it going to take the Democratic President? Is that what it's going to do? I don't know if these people see who have taken over their party. I plead with American Democrats to get yourself out of the room with these extremists that your party said, no, no, no, we're using them. It's the other way around. They control you. They've been using you. And now they're in control. And you want proof? Look at Media Matters. Look at the Daily Kos. These people are not Democrats. They're socialists. They're Marxists. When people like Chris Matthews and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton aren't liberal enough for you, you're in real trouble. They are taking and they're cannibalizing their own party because it's not their party. They are extreme left. And the good Democrats in America need to wake up. We've never been this country before, and it is really I think spooky. I think it's really spooky. And, you know, the Democrats are taking, here they are -- they are doing their big convention in Denver and they're again focusing on the green movement. Are you crazy? How are they getting away with it? They're focusing on the green movement? They are going to make this a green convention. You're out of your mind. At the same time -- I love this story -- Denver has given homeless movie tickets and zoo asses for use during the Democratic National Convention. Why? When the DNC is in town next month, Colorado coalition for homeless plans to give away 500 movie tickets, zoo passes and museum tickets along with bus tickets for the use during the convention. Why? Is there a big homeless problem where they can't go see the zoo? Is there -- I mean, I've never met a homeless person where they had a cup out and they said, I just really want to go to the zoo. Zoo tickets? Zoo tickets? Just enough for a zoo ticket? I've never seen a homeless person out begging for money. I just really want to see Mamma Mia. Mamma Mia, enough for Mamma Mia, please? Please, please, I haven't seen it -- I'm homeless. I haven't seen a good movie in I don't know how long! The only reason to do this is to get these people off the streets. These are the compassionate green people that say that we're so awful as conservatives, they don't want to see them. They don't want to look at them. They don't want to be around them. Send them to a zoo. Send them to a museum. Only the elitist Democrats would say, "You know what we could do to help. If we could just take a homeless person and get them a free pass to the art museum, wouldn't he just love that, lovie?

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.
