Glenn in HD and on DVD

Thank to Dwight for sending in this picture from the Beck '08 event at the Tinsel Town Theater in Oklahoma City.

GLENN: Let's go to Rick in New Jersey. Listening to us on WPHT. Hello, Rick.

Caller: Hello, Glenn, my friend. Thanks so much from a retired Air Force master sergeant, thanks so much for the opportunity to see you at the theater last night. I was in Hamilton, New Jersey, the theater was probably about 85 to 90 percent full, very interactive. I can't thank you enough. I do have one complaint. Love you, my friend, and am a firm follower of you. At one point during the show you wiped your sweaty brow and face and your chiselled jaw on a little white string that was there for about two minutes and I just wanted to scream at the screen, come on, man! Wipe it off! Somebody!

Glenn: Can I tell you something? I have heard this from people all morning long.

Pat: That had to be a good look.

Glenn: It's in high definition, which

Caller: Oh, it is.

Glenn: What was the experience like with the high definition?

Caller: The high definition was fantastic, but, I mean, that white string was like a neon sign just pulsating, you know, and finally you hit your tie and it fell off to the ground and then at one point you had another little white speck. So, I don't know. The handlers need to make sure that you are towel is lint free or something.

Glenn: Do you know what I need? I need flesh colored towels

Caller: That would work great.

Glenn: I could have pink towels, because that's as flesh color as I get. I'm just kind of this I never get tanned or anything else. I just I'm just this little kind of awkward pink paste

Pat: Sort of pasty.

Caller: Oh, my God. Glenn, it is a wonderful opportunity for me to speak to you. You have to do this again, my friend. You definitely have to do this again because it was great. The crowd there at Hamilton was into it. We were shedding tears. We were screaming. We were clapping.

Glenn: Is this the first time you've ever seen anything that I do on stage?

Caller: It is the first time I've ever had the the opportunity to see you on stage and I can't thank you enough.

Glenn: I have to tell you, that I did an interview this morning with WFLA in Tampa and they said, I just want you to know, you might see him on television or listen to him on the radio or whatever, but, really, stage is really the place that he's good. I said, okay. All right. Thanks, Jack. But it's always a surprise when people come to the shows and last night 350 theaters all across the country in movie theaters and I think Michael Moore felt a little gurgling someplace in him going, Huh oh, a conservative has broken through the shell and is inside the complex now. And all the things that I heard from people, this is what I was most concerned of, that people would go and it wouldn't be you wouldn't feel the camaraderie that you feel when you're at the live show because the audiences are different and it empowers you when you feel that audience and we feel it every time we do a live show, this show in particular, but apparently from everything that I've heard from the people that went, that they felt that comradery. It is, by the way, going to be available on DVD. We'll give you all the information on that as we get closer to that, but thank you, thank you, thank you, America, for coming last night.

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.
