Glenn Beck: Dem's laugh off Gustav




Don Fowler Amused by New Orleans Hurricane



Michael Moore Thanks God for Hurricane Gustav

GLENN: Also, something else that I find absolutely incredible. Can we play the audio, please, of Michael Moore on Keith Olbermann. Here's the dynamic duo.

MOORE: Good evening, Keith, thanks for having me back. I was just thinking, this Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven. To have it planned at the same time. I

GLENN: Stop. We don't need to hear anymore. Here is Michael Moore laughing about Gustav. I mean, I love the fact that the only time there's proof that there's a God is when he kills a bunch of people, apparently for an election. Can you imagine? I mean, what was it after 9/11 when somebody came out and said who was it that came out and said was it Falwell that came out and said, this is punishment, yet it's a funny joke when they say it. They are, of course, the party of real compassion, but behind the scenes and now apparently in front of the camera, and nobody seems to care, they can say whatever they want. They can joke about people dying as a payback during the election. It's amazing.

Now, the former chair of the DNC, he was the chairperson of the DNC between 1995 and 1997. His name is Donald Fowler. He was on a plane and he was coming back from the convention and this audio is very, very difficult to hear, but we should include this in the newsletter today so you can actually see it, but here is the audio of him on the plane talking about the hurricane.

(Audio plays).

GLENN: Okay. What he's saying here is, plus I think the hurricane's going to hit, and he starts to laugh New Orleans about the time the Republicans start. The timing, at least as it appears now, it will be there on Monday. That just demonstrates that God is on our side. You want to talk about arrogance, it's not just the arrogance that he would say something like this but he would also say it in a public space on an airplane coming back from the convention. I don't know, but he's probably not the only political person on the plane. Sitting right behind him is Caleb Howe. He's from redstate.com and Caleb is on the phone with us. And Caleb, you are the guy, you were sitting right behind Fowler.

HOWE: I was.

GLENN: How did that did you switch seats? How did that happen?

HOWE: That was just coincidence. I was just sitting in my seat and Congressman Spratt sat directly in front of me and Fowler sat across the aisle in front of me.

GLENN: Okay. And did you have like a little Flip Video or how did you record this?

HOWE: Just a handheld camera, you know, a single shot camera.

GLENN: Okay. So you're and did you position it some place? Where did you position the camera?

HOWE: I just, yeah, I just sat it right on my knee. You know, when they came on the plane, they were clearly holding the audience, speaking very loud. Fowler was the one to whom all they were deferring and they were putting on a show. So I thought, well, this is going to be good. So I pulled out my camera and turned it on.

GLENN: Okay. And how much conversation happened prior to what you captured?

HOWE: Just a few minutes. Mostly trashing Sarah Palin.

GLENN: And what were they saying about Sarah Palin?

HOWE: Congressman Spratt called her just terrible. Fowler said she really had nothing to offer; they picked her just because she was a female, she was he called her Quayle on steroids.

GLENN: All right. So you had that. And then you heard Fowler say what he said.

HOWE: That's right.

GLENN: And what was the describe the scene a little bit.

HOWE: Well, you know, he had people sitting around turned paying attention to him and he was putting on his big show and he started laughing and everybody said along with. And, you know, when he said this is just proof that God is on our side, everybody was nodding in agreement and chuckling to themselves widely and everybody generally seemed to accept the premise.

GLENN: Did you ever introduce yourself?

HOWE: I did not, no. Although Congressman Spratt's wife did notice my Reagan shirt I was wearing at the time and give me a funny look. So...

GLENN: Now, you went right away and you posted this video.

HOWE: Correct.

GLENN: And then you were called how long was it before you were called a right wing nut job?

HOWE: A little less than 48 hours. It was about a day and a half.

GLENN: So it took a day and a half for them to come up with something as clever as that.

HOWE: That's right.

GLENN: So all you did, all you did was post the video of them saying, "God is on our side, that's why he's sending a hurricane to New Orleans" and you're the nut job.

HOWE: That's right.

GLENN: Just wanted to make sure I got that right.

HOWE: Yeah, that's exactly how it happened.

GLENN: Caleb, what has has there been any actual reaction from this other than just name calling? Has there been any reaction on either side? What are people saying?

HOWE: Well, I mean, I'm up here in St. Paul and a lot of people have seen the video. Most of the people who I'm with think he was being a real jerk, and the South Carolina GOP chairman made a statement. So, you know, it's got a little bit of splash. But you don't see a lot of outrage, certainly not online. I mean, you go to the left wing websites, they are not on there decrying him the way it would be if it was a reverse situation.

GLENN: Sure. Can you even imagine, imagine.

HOWE: I know, imagine that.

GLENN: Caleb, what do you think of the you know, the blog, the blogosphere is just on fire today and has been all weekend with Sarah Palin.

HOWE: It is, yes.

GLENN: And the pictures of her daughter which came out over the weekend. And I mean, I looked at it. My wife and I, we sat next to each other and we were looking at the Internet and we looked at the pictures and I mean, I think my wife almost broke out in tears. And I did as well as a dad. Then I come to find out that the pictures that they were showing of Sarah Palin's daughter were two years old. So not even possible that she was even pregnant at the time. So her daughter just had a little belly fat there.

HOWE: Right, right, which they were shredding her for online.

GLENN: Absolutely unbelievable. As a blogger, where's the line here, Caleb?

HOWE: Well, you know, I mean, this story originated at Daily Coast and my experience is they really don't have a line if it involves Republicans. I mean, they will cross any line. They will certainly attack a 17 year old if they think it's going to benefit them in even a small way during the election which is you know, which is exactly what they did.

GLENN: Do you believe that there's a line? Is there something that you have come across, let's say on the other sredstate.comide that you've said and don't tell me what it is, but you've said, absolutely not.

HOWE: I've never come across anything like that, but I know there is a line and I think most of the bloggers on our side, certainly at redstate know that there's a line that we wouldn't cross. This is one of those. I mean, we certainly wouldn't be attacking a child and saying, "You know, I don't know, she's pretty fat, she must have been pregnant, I think Sarah Palin's a liar."

GLENN: Unbelievable.

HOWE: When they have to know it was a ridiculous story but they posted it anyway.

GLENN: They are not even saying "We think." They're saying "We know."

HOWE: Right.

GLENN: In fact, I just read something from Andrew Sullivan from The Atlantic and he is I mean, he is just he's demanding the medical records for Trig. He is saying, let's have them, let's let us talk to the obstetrician, let's have the medical records. Oh, my gosh, you've got to be kidding me.

HOWE: He's really gone off the edge. You know, he's in the tank for Obama so bad that that's his new religion and I mean, I'm not even surprised with anything Sullivan does anymore.

GLENN: All right. Well, Caleb, just unbelievable video and, of course, that's not going to get any you know, it's not going to get the kind of play that it would be if that video were having the Republicans say something like that.

HOWE: That's right. Of course not.

GLENN: Yeah. All right, Caleb, thanks a lot.

HOWE: Thank you.

GLENN: You bet, bye bye. That's from redstate.com.

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"
