Full disclosure? Fuhgetaboutit!



GLENN: Oh, yeah. Let's stop talking about the real agenda. The real agenda, of course, is global socialism. Al Gore was sticking his face in the finger -- the finger in the face of America yesterday in front of the United Nations saying that we've got to move on, the world's got to move on without America. In two years things will be different. In two years you can go ahead and put that global tax on. You need to start penalizing the United States of America. They were speaking out loud yesterday in stuff that will not be reported on mainstream television or mainstream newspapers about global socialism, quoting redistribution of wealth from rich countries to poor countries because we all know that will change the temperature of the planet. I know it's getting a little hotter where I am right now just thinking about it.

Dreaming of a green Christmas

NBC "news" story - LED lights are lighting up holiday displays across the US, and with potential energy savings worth billions, their use could spread beyond the holidays. NBC's Mark Potter reports.

But let's not talk about the real agenda. Did anybody watch Brian Williams last night on NBC? Brian Williams, the last segment on NBC, a full report on how Ann Arbor, Michigan is changing all of the public lights, all the traffic signals, all the street lights to LED and how that is the equivalent of taking 400 cars off the road. It was a fantastic story. My gosh, look at this. They can take 400 cars right off the road. How fabulous that is. Whole piece was about how great LED lights are for everybody. It's wonderful. Then they went to Brian Williams in the studio and he said, I just want you to show -- I want to show you that NBC has converted to LED lights because we care about the environment and maybe you should, too. Those LED lights, those are fantastic, isn't it? No mention that NBC is owned by GE, no mention that if you go to GE and lumination.com, oh, my gosh, oh, look at this on the front page is signage and architecture, LED systems can lower your operating and maintenance costs. GE making new LED traffic signals, GE making new LED rail signals. GE making new LED display lighting. GE creating exceptional light quality across a variety of lighting applications. My gosh, I'm telling you somebody in the United States government needs to clamp down on General Electric. They won't because General Electric has three times the lobbying budget of all of the oil companies combined. So Washington is definitely in the pocket of General Electric. So nobody is ever going to clamp down on them, but I've got to tell you something. For NBC to be owned by General Electric and then to bury stories in their news about, oh, my gosh, look at how great this is; this global warming thing, you could take 400 cars right off the streets, just with this new lumination. Look at the LED system. Isn't this great? I wonder who makes those traffic lights. Wonder who can do that? It's got to be some great country -- or some company. I'd sure buy stock in that company. Oh, well, this is the NBC news. Good night, everybody. This is insidious.

By the way, Al Gore is partnering with GE as well. You want to talk about global corporations, here it is. You want to talk about global corporations controlling the news, here it is. Am I the only one outraged by this? I'm the only one that I know of -- please call and tell me that you've heard somebody else say this. I'm the only one that is watching this saying, wait a minute! How is it that NBC got away with green week without ever disclosing: By the way, we're a wholly owned subsidiary of General Electric and we have a lot to gain. How is it NBC can get away with doing a pro LED sign and light and look how great it is for global warming block on television without disclosing that they are a wholly owned subsidiary of GE, the people making those lights? This is an outrage. Is no one going to look into it? Is no one going to call into question NBC's credibility? What has happened to us?

By the way, I got those new Christmas lights. They're LED lights. They're fantastic. I put them on the tree. They save so much energy. You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to go out and I'm going to buy those really big old-fashioned bulbs. In fact, you know what? If I can get the really, really old ones that have a little tag that say only powered by coal fire engines, I'm going to buy those and put them on my house. I actually, when I was in San Francisco -- was it San Francisco we saw the fluorescent tree? Yeah, of course it was. We were in San Francisco last week. I actually saw at the airport a fluorescent lit tree! I don't want fluorescent lights! I hate them.

Have you seen them yet, Stu? Have they made them to your neighborhood?

STU: I haven't seen them yet, but I have seen -- there are a lot of the LED lights that are popping up everywhere.

GLENN: I don't have a problem with LED lights, I don't. I really don't.

STU: I don't know. For Christmas? I don't think they work.

GLENN: I mean, here's the thing. If we can save energy and they are better lights and everything else, I don't have anything wrong with that. My problem is not with the technology. My problem is embedding in the news. You know what this is? You know what this is? This is me saying, hey, by the way, I want you to know I don't have an agenda at all, I have absolutely no agenda, I'm neutral on everything. I'm just reporting the news. And in the news today some brilliant, brilliant pieces of work that I mean, I have to tell you some of the best astute comments on the problems of the world today and some of the best solutions I've ever heard available in a bookstore right now. I'm trying to remember the name of the book, something, Inconvenient Book. You should pick it up. It's incredible. Now here's some more news.

I mean, I'm the one creating that stuff.

STU: This is one of the worst examples I've seen because we've talked about this before in general sort of environmental terms and talking about alternative energy with GE but this is like -- I mean, it's a legitimate, like it's a product they are shipping out to, they are trying to sell specifically to communities.

GLENN: Yeah. And you know what? Have you noticed that Al Gore doesn't have a problem being in bed with big business? It's just big oil.

STU: Yeah, it's just a big --

GLENN: Yeah, why should I take any -- why should you have any credibility? They take money from the oil industry. Why should NBC have any credibility on anything that's said about global warming? They're owned by a company that makes the technology that will be replacing all of the old technology!


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?
