Stu on the Street

Stu is seen here reporting from a local gas station in your area...

GLENN: Let me go to Stu who's our expert. He's been out at the gas stations. Stu, where you're at, how much is gas -- how much is gas right now at the gas station where you're at, Stu?

STU: Glenn, a gallon of gas is under $4 a gallon. Just as I'm walking out now past the pumps. No, it's under $4 a gallon. I mean, they're giving away, Glenn.

GLENN: Shirley wanted to know if you thought that the -- if you thought the gas crisis was over, are they going to flop back up and down?

STU: Oh, no, this is completely over, Glenn. You know, look. You remember -- remember the -- remember penny candy?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And remember -- now they're at dollar stores, which is so expensive. But this, gas prices now is more like the penny candy. You take a big, you know, handful as you walk out. You don't even think about how many you have because it doesn't matter. The price is so cheap now. It's under $4 a gallon.

GLENN: So I just want to make this clear. So you believe the price falling down, it will never go back up?

STU: Oh, no. It's impossible, Glenn. With this momentum, it's been an entire week of dropping.

GLENN: What's been causing the price to go down?

STU: What's causing the price to go down? Well, actually let's talk to an everyday person here. I'm here with Samuel. Samuel, how have the gas prices been affecting you?

VOICE: Oh, it's been great. I actually took a day off from work, excited today to go out and go driving around.

STU: You are saving so much money on these gas prices, you don't even have to work anymore?

VOICE: I do, but I took the day off today.

GLENN: This is starting to sound like an infomercial.

STU: I'm sorry, Glenn, the gas pumps are so loud, there's these drills that go, jeeep, jeeep, they go off and I can't hear anything. Sir, some people have suggested crazy ideas like drilling for more oil domesticly. What do you think about that solution?

VOICE: Well, that's one of the reasons why I'm so excited is that this proves, this energy crisis here, this proves that, you know, the prices can come down and we didn't have to drill one bit. We didn't drill at all. So basically no drilling and the prices go down, which means if we would drill, prices would go up. It's basic supply and demand economics.

STU: Wow. There you go, Glenn.

GLENN: Wait a minute. That doesn't make any sense whatsoever. The demand is going to keep going up if we don't drill. Of course the price is going to continue to grow.

STU: Unfortunately I'm going to have to cut you off because right now Samuel looks very concerned about the environment. Samuel, what's your passion?

VOICE: Yeah, look, I'm very excited right now because this also means without all this drilling that we can save oceans, you know, the environment, we can save --

GLENN: How are you going to save oceans?

VOICE: Oceans and seas, we can save bays. We've got ponds.

GLENN: How do you go without? What is gas prices dropping a dime, how is that saving the oceans and the seas?

STU: What else would he save, Samuel?

CALLER: I guess he's not getting it. But you don't drill, you're also saving the canals.

STU: Don't forget about the waterfalls and tributaries.

GLENN: I don't --

STU: I don't know what's so funny about saving the Delta.

GLENN: I don't even know how it safes my gas going down a dime. Gas is Gooding to go up. I may stay down a little while, may go down more but then it's going to come back up because we're not drilling for our own oil.

STU: Well, there you go, Glenn. You heard it from the experts. Samuel from the gas station who says that we can save -- what was it, Samuel?

VOICE: Look, if you want to keep the puddles dirty, then that's your problem. I don't want that on my conscience.

GLENN: Oh, these gas prices are really taking this country by storm and it is so great. I think, I think maybe by tomorrow, because they have fallen for a week, I think maybe by tomorrow it will be time for Chuck Schumer to go ahead and announce that the energy crisis is over.


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.
