Glenn Beck: Pics with Palin

Picture sent in from Curt

GLENN: Let me go to Curt in Pittsburgh. Hello, Curt.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn, the story that happened this weekend at the McCain/Palin rally in Pennsylvania, we have a 5 year old daughter with Down Syndrome and we've been fans of Sarah long before she came on the national scene and we drove down to the rally. We took our daughter Chloe, who's 5, down there. My wife made a sign that said "We love kids with Down Syndrome" and we managed to be in a position down there that when the bus pulled in, Sarah and Senator McCain could see us and they waved and had thumbs up when they saw had your daughter and they saw our sign. So we moved around and positioned ourself just so we could wave to them on the bus and when the bus was pulling out. And when the so we were standing there and a secret service agent came over to us and said, can your family come with us? And I said, well, I didn't pay those parking tickets but

GLENN: Okay, okay, maybe not all of the income tax.

CALLER: Right. So we went up the hill and we were taken right inside the inner circle and Senator McCain, Cindy McCain, Sarah Palin, her husband and her family were all there and they walked over and just greeted us and thank you for coming. And Sarah walked right up and she hugged me. That's one of my claims to fame now. And

GLENN: She's hot, isn't she? She's hot. I mean, let's be

CALLER: She is a beautiful woman, right.

GLENN: She's a beautiful woman.

CALLER: She's a beautiful woman.

GLENN: She is.

CALLER: She immediately asked if she could hold our daughter and I actually sent you and Stu pictures of this.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I know Stu has been busy fielding calls from Clippy 4019er.

STU: The other thing I'm doing is looking up pictures of Sarah Palin. So I can break from the

GLENN: You know what, let's put these in the put these in the web in the newsletter, too. You get these for free if you are a subscriber to the free newsletter.


GLENN: Okay. So how long did you spend with her?

CALLER: We spent about 10 minutes, Glenn. What was really neat, too, her son who had Down Syndrome was on the bus and her daughter brought her son off the bus. He was napping. And our little daughter Chloe walked over and kissed him right on the head. It was just a magical moment. I said just solidified to me that here's a ticket that just embraces life, embraces all the possibilities and embraced the average people and we're average people. I work with children with disabilities. And they were my son who's 9, Senator McCain asked me if he wanted to see the bus. And just as down to Earth type of people. You could have gone and had pizza with them. They were just as kind as can be.

GLENN: So what is the were you a McCain supporter before?

CALLER: Well, I'm a very conservative evangelical Christian and I totally admire John McCain. Yes, I was. I really, I admire the man. He is a man of character. He has served his country and I even said to him when I had a chance to talk to him, I said, Senator McCain, we are here today attending this rally because of the service of you and men like you, great men like you who are the heart of this country and as you said earlier, they're sending their sons to protect the rights and freedoms that we have. And they are a blessing.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: And they are the best they are the hope for this country and they are the people, embrace the possibilities of the greatness of our nation and I just wanted to share that with you and it was an incredible experience. As we were walking down the hill, Glenn, I was talking to my wife, what just happened up there. It was pretty neat.

GLENN: All right, Curt, hang on just a second.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

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."
