BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: Now, you being a person that would be just like me, you don't have time to do all of your homework. So you just have that thought, wait a minute, isn't NBC owned by G.E.? I on the other hand, have people that follow these trains of thoughts like Stu.

Stu, give me a little give me a little background on, gee, there's two parts of this story. The second part will boggle your mind. But here's the first part.

STU: Well, as you know G.E., electric is in their name.

GLENN: Yes, General Electric.

STU: Generally electric, and they are big fans of electricity. One way they like to produce that electricity are green ways.

GLENN: Green ways.

STU: Very green.

GLENN: Green like nuclear plants?

STU: Perhaps.

GLENN: Do they build parts for nuclear plants?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Do they build any parts that maybe sequester coal to oil?

STU: Clean coal.

GLENN: Clean coal. They're involved in that. Hydro electricity?

STU: Off the top of my head I'm not sure about that one, but probably.

GLENN: They make the big turbines.

STU: Wind turbines, definitely.

GLENN: How about wind power, big on wind power?

STU: Very big on wind power.

GLENN: Let's come back to wind power in just a second.

STU: Yes. Now, there was a story done this is back in 2006, European website had done the story, of basically that while the CEO of G.E. and the people in G.E., particularly in Europe are fighting hard for, Kyoto and these sort of energy, C02 emission caps, they were fighting hard for those because it was the right thing to do.

GLENN: Right.

STU: As you know.

GLENN: Wait a minute. They're fighting for emission caps. That means the big companies couldn't put a lot of emissions out, they would need clean technology, or they would need to trade for, hmm, higher emissions, right?

STU: Uh huh.

GLENN: Is that right? They would trade. They would say, hey, you have a lot of emissions, we need more emissions or whatever. And they could trade back and forth.

STU: Yeah, and in case you're not sure what that means. Basically it's trading things that don't really have any value.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: It's a made up market, because these things wouldn't be traded if you didn't just create the market to trade them.

GLENN: For instance, if all of a sudden we said, hey, you're only supposed to use so much air, if I had a thousand acre ranch, I could trade air. So, in other words, I could say, oh, well, I've got a thousand acres and there's only, you know, six people in my family and obviously only six people on a thousand acres but you have a family of eight living on half an acre, the government says you're using too much air per acre I tell you what, you just buy my air from my land to live on your land across the country.

We don't actually change anything. I'm just trading money.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Got it.

STU: Shockingly enough businessmen tend to find ways to take advantage of such things.

GLENN: You think so.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: You're not saying that G.E. found a way.

STU: No, of course not. The same story in the same website reported that because of G.E. being heavily invested in all the clean energies, the reason for this was, quote, in anticipation of the European carbon trading process, inspiring a similar measure in the US.

So they invested in these carbon tradings, in these clean energies, specifically because they were anticipating the Al Gore world to come to fruition.

GLENN: Got it. So they're investing in these clean energies because they understand that the trading system is coming, Kyoto, blah, blah, blah. Now, we're going to take you to another company that every liberal in America hates. It is the most evil company I'm not talking about Halliburton. Thinking more evil than Halliburton. The most evil company, because all they care about is energy. All they care about is screwing the little man, all they care about is making money. They went out of business. All these people lost their life savings. George Bush had to be involved. World Trade Center No. 7 was brought down to cover the tracks. We of course are talking about Enron.

How does Enron connect to the little green peacock? Next.

(OUT 9:44)

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. 888 727 BECK. So NBC has the green peacock. They're green all week. Everybody thinks it's great because oh my gosh look at that they're just helping the environment. They just love the environment so much.

The Today Show has sent people to the North Pole, the South Pole and the equator for sweeps week. They're not doing it for ratings. They do it because it's the right thing.

All of the shows are green. They do the half time show by candlelight. Why? Just gave you the connection to General Electric. General Electric saw this one coming a long time ago. They saw the political climate changing in Europe.

And so what they wanted to do was they wanted to make sure that they got into this technology here in America as well because they know it's coming to America. But somebody in America had the market cornered. Somebody in America actually was loved by all the environmentalists for so long. They were held up high esteem, look how much they care about the environment.

Because this company was leading the charge on the Kyoto treaty. We have got to get into that Kyoto treaty. Why did Enron want to get news the Kyoto treaty. Why was Enron all over this?

Let me ask you this: What did Enron do? Enron sold energy. Enron loved, what, when the forest fire do you remember? When the forest fire happened, what did they say? "Burn baby burn." Wait a minute they're for the Kyoto treaty why would they say burn baby burn? Because they knew this would cause massive energy brownouts. They knew if those power lines burned up, look at this, we are in the money.

So they wanted to make sure Kyoto passed and we got all strapped down because it would cause energy shortages. It would cause energy problems. They love that. Unfortunately for them, they went out of business. But...but they were the world's leader on wind energy. What was it called? Enron Wind?

STU: Enron Wind.

GLENN: When they had the big fire sale, who bought Enron Wind? Stu?

STU: That would be General Electric.

GLENN: That's weird.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: That's really weird. So now General Electric is the world's leader in wind.

STU: One of them, yes.

GLENN: Oh. Hmm. That's really weird.

STU: It's really weird because even you don't think Enron was the most evil company in the universe, one thing you can definitely recognize about them is they knew how to trade. They knew how to take advantage of trading systems, which is why they wanted them implemented that's why they bought the other side of it by buying clean energy.

GLENN: There you go every time you see the peacock that's green think wind power from General Electric. 

END TRANSCRIPT

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:
