Follow the Green



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.


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. 


Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
