Glenn Beck: Daily Kos, internet rag


Anchorage TV Station: Sarah Palin Was "Definitely Pregnant" With Trig

GLENN: So Lee Stranahan wrote Daily Kos--this is on the Huffington Post--Daily Kos embraces the Palin fake pregnancy rumor, but rejects the Edwards story. I love this. It's the whackiest rumor about Sarah Palin or any other politician so far this election. It's making its way through the Internet and, of course, it came from the Daily Kos. Let's hear from the noted reporter, Arc XIX, what is that, Arc 19? Following up on a story by widely respected Inky 99. You know, here's the thing. If you are going to report stories, you should probably go with something a little more credible than Inky 99. Maybe it's just me: Well, Sarah, I'm calling you a liar. And not even a good one. Trig Paxson Van Palin is not your son, he is your grandson and the further forward you come with this revelation to the public, the better.

You know what's really impressive to me is how inconsistent, how inconsistent people like me are being. You know what I mean? Here I'm saying let's not go after these things because there's nothing there, they're discredited. But then I immediately spend so much time on the fake birth certificate of Obama's. Oh, no, wait a minute. That doesn't work. What was it, last Friday somebody called up and said, Glenn, how about his fake birth certificate? And I said, stop with the fake birth certificate. There's nothing there and it discredits you. Did we really, Stu?

STU: Yeah. Remember, that was a couple of weeks ago.

GLENN: We did an argument against the idiots on it?

STU: Yes, disproving some of the ridiculous myths about Obama, that that's not the reason for him not to be President. There's real reasons for him to be President.

GLENN: Okay. So anyway, this is on the Daily Kos from Inky 99 and Arc XIX. The whole story is based on an insulting view of fundamentalist Christians. Listen, this is the Huffington Post. The whole story is based on an insulting view of fundamentalist Christians that they would be so freaked out by the teenage pregnancy that they would have the governor, the most highly visible and public woman in a small fish bowl in Alaska fake a pregnancy to cover up the sins of her daughter Bristol.

First of all, if she's faked it once for her kid, why isn't she faking it a second time? Anybody think of that? Let me ask you this question. Women, can you get all technical with me and tell me how you're five months pregnant when you gave birth to a baby in April? How does that can somebody get all technical with me?

Let's see. It goes on and on and on. Then he says, the irony for me, of course, is that despite making over 50 short political videos with a clear progressive point of view, I was banned on the Daily Kos for saying what seemed reasonable that John Edwards was seen at the Beverly Hilton late at night. To be sure, some on Daily Kos pointed up the numerous problems with the Palin story, but the community in large part embraced it and it is part of a trend. The election hasn't even been won yet and there is already liberal hubris developing. Progressive standard bearers such as the Daily Kos and Keith Olbermann have been showing lines lately listen to this. Again this is from the Huffington Post. Does it sound familiar have been showing signs lately of a nasty tendency towards stifling dissenting opinions and promoting the sorts of crazy rumors usually associated with the right than the real based community. It's not effective, it's not progressive, and it's not good or accurate reflection on Barack Obama or the Democratic party.

Again, does it sound familiar? The Democrats have been hijacked by the uber left. The Democratic party. How many times have I said on this program, Democrats, good Democrats, when are you going to stand up. Good Democrats, when are you going to recognize that you have been hijacked and you are being used by the left and you're about to be discarded? You must grab your party again. How many times have we said that? How many times have we said we are entering a time that if the left, the uber left gets control of congress and they get control of the White House, your point of view is going to be squashed. People like me will not exist.

Here's a guy who is a blogger for the Huffington Post, who they wouldn't let speak out about John Edwards. Remember, that John Edwards story, that wasn't in the mainstream media. Nobody in the media wanted to cover that story because it wasn't relevant, and it was only coming from the blogs. I'm sorry. Wasn't even the blog. It was the National Enquirer. They didn't want to cover it. They sat on that story for over a year.

Has anybody noticed the play on this story? Has anyone noticed the play on this yet? This is everywhere, and it came from Inky 99. It's amazing. The Daily Kos immediately shuts it down on John Edwards. The mainstream media immediately shuts it down on John Edwards. This one, well, we the Atlantic Today is calling for the obstetrician: We want the records, we want them and we want them now. Excuse me? Has anyone yet called for the records on John Edwards' child? Which, of course, isn't his.

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."

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.
