It's not easy being Green

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: Anyway, I was watching it on Fox and they are running the little Frank Luntz meter thing where he gets all of these people in a room with a focus group and they turn the knob and then the ratings on how exactly -- you know, whether people like it or not -- hang on just a second. John, what are you doing? You're driving me out of my mind. I can't concentrate. I'm riddled with ADD. I can't do it. Do you need an adjustment on the microphone? Is that what you need? Okay.

I can hear you, John. I can hear you, for the love of Pete.

All right. So they had the little Peter on, you know, what the focus group thought, you know, of what everybody was saying and I have to tell you, Alan Keyes and Ron Paul, race to the bottom. It was unbelievable. It was the way to watch it because if you've ever watched these debates and you're like, jeez, that was really good or that was really bad; I wonder if anybody else is feeling this way. On a third of the screen was the ratings and how much people were like, oh, jeez, shut this guy up; or, I love that. And it was interesting to watch because you could see the key words. You could see. When anybody started talking about the border, which they really didn't talk about the border very much because I don't know, was this a high school journalism person that was asking the questions? The moderator was the worst.

STU: Yeah, she was getting hammered. They were saying, though, Glenn, that they weren't going to talk about Iraq or immigration because Iowa voters already had heard enough from the candidates about those things.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Good.

STU: That's the explanation on that one.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. So we're going to ask about other things. Like here's my favorite: Raise your hand if you think global warming is a big threat. What, are we in the third grade? Raise your hand if you think global -- you know what? I've got to tell you. You know who scored big yesterday with me? Fred Thompson. You know, I've been watching Fred Thompson. I don't think that Fred Thompson is a dynamo by any stretch of the imagination, but yesterday was the Fred Thompson that I have been expecting to see and wanting to see. I don't know if it was just me. I know, I know, I know, I know: "Well, Glenn, he was on your show. Of course you like him now." Yeah, that's me, in a nutshell. I wasn't impressed with Fred Thompson even when he was on the radio show, and I told you that afterwards. Yesterday I was impressed with Fred Thompson.

Do we have the answer to the global warming question?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Go ahead.

(Archive playing.)

VOICE: Is that yes or no for you? Do you believe that global climate change is a serious threat?

SENATOR THOMPSON: Do you want to give me a minute to answer that?

VOICE: No, I don't.

SENATOR THOMPSON: Then I'm not going to answer it.

GLENN: Do you believe global warming is a serious threat and caused by human activity? Yes or no? Oh, gee, hang on. Because there's no nuance in this answer at all. I mean, what is that?

STU: I actually read that the meters actually spiked higher than anything in the entire debate when he answered that question like that as far as the approval rating of that response.

GLENN: The two spikes in the show, that one, and the downward spike was Alan Keyes. Ooh. Alan Keyes gets all up in his Kermit the frog kind of impression and starts, "Well, let me tell you something, a lot of stuff being passed up here. It's not easy being green." And in fact, Dan?

DAN: Yes?

GLENN: Do we have any audio of Kermit the frog and audio of Alan Keyes?

DAN: I can find -- I can get some here.

GLENN: I just -- I mean, I can't take the man seriously.

STU: Yeah. Is that why he was included in the debate? Was it because it was a tip of the hat?

GLENN: I think Alan Keyes on that question should have raised his hand and said, it ain't easy being green. I think that's the way he should have answered the question.

STU: Why was he there, Glenn? He hasn't been in any of the other debates.

GLENN: Because if you're in Iowa, you can be in any of the debates as long as you have an office there.

STU: Yeah, but you have to be 1% of the polls, you have to have an office there and you have to just basically be an official candidate but then why isn't Kucinich in the Democratic one? Why isn't Gravel in the Democratic one?

GLENN: I don't have any idea. I don't have any idea, but it was a race to the bottom with him and Ron Paul. Ron Paul, every time Ron Paul and Alan Keyes spoke, if you were looking at those charts, and I'm sure that Fox News is part of the grand conspiracy. I know I've heard that everyone that works at Fox News on those ratings things, they're all part of a government conspiracy. They're all CIA agents (whispering.). but every time they started to talk, just race to the bottom. And by the way, I just want you to know, Ron Paul, Dr. Paul, is going to be on the program for a full hour Tuesday night television. Don't miss an hour of Ron Paul on television this coming Tuesday.

STU: This is big news, Glenn.

GLENN: Oh, I know.

STU: He's accepted your invitation.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: This is a huge development. You get a whole hour with him?

GLENN: Whole hour.

STU: Excited.

GLENN: Yeah. Now, they have requested that it is played in its entirety and not to edit it, which is hysterical because you should see the chain of e-mail after they wrote to me last night and said Ron Paul's going to be on the program, and I immediately wrote back and said, it must not be edited because I refuse to hear a single person say, "They edited it to make him look ridiculous!" Nope. Won't be edited at all and it will be a fair and open conversation with Ron Paul who, some of his supporters are great. Some of his supporters have been threatening my life, but we'll talk to Ron Paul about it on Tuesday, and it's sure going to be great.

Do we have the Kermit the frog and Alan Keyes?

STU: Yeah, looks like we do here, Glenn.

GLENN: Go ahead.

KEYES: What I think a lot of folks out there understand what you're watching in our country.

(It's not easy being green.)

GLENN: Okay, stop for a second. Go back to Alan Keyes.

KEYES: I don't know who you should vote for in the Iowa caucuses. Who represents the voice that they're absolutely determined to overlook in the discussion of our sovereignty and the betrayal of this people's sovereignty.

(It's not easy being green.)

GLENN: I'm telling you. I'm telling you.

KEYES: On the border, on our moral principles, on the major export overseas with --.

(It's not easy being green.)

KEYES: Is our jobs. These folks represent the very elites who year after year after year have destroyed our Constitution.

GLENN: You know what it is? You know what it is? It's Kermit the frog pissed off. That's what Alan Keyes is, a really pissed off Kermit the frog. It's like Kermit was -- it's not easy being green. It's, "It's not easy being green!" If you just imagine Kermit the frog really pissed off, you get Alan Keyes. Maybe it's just me, but I can't help it. Every time I see him I think... hi ho.

By the way, have you seen that Nancy Pelosi has spent $16,000 on flowers? $16,000 on flowers for her office because she had dignitaries coming in. By the way, Denny Hastert never spent any flowers for his office. She spent $16,000 in the last year. Do these people think we're made of money? Because by the way, that's your money. You've spent $16,000 on flowers, and she had them brought in -- hang on just a second -- for the dignitaries that she welcomed. She welcomed prime minister Ehud Olmert, she welcomed French president Sarkozy and Jordan's King Abdullah. $16,000. First of all, let me just point out I'm just think that Ehud Nicky and Abdullah could give a flying crap about flowers. I'm sure they all walked in and went, oh, my gosh, look at this, look at this bouquet; that is so welcoming; thank you so much.

Do you think these guys care? They're guys, for the love of Pete! What guy is saying, "Oh, my gosh. This is lovely." Do we really need to have flowers, $16,000 in flowers? When are these guys going to get it? When are these guys in Washington going to get it?

END TRANSCRIPT

The Federal Reserve has a huge role in the Great Reset, as Glenn Beck and the Heartland Institute’s Justin Haskins explained on the radio program. The Fed will force nearly all banks to comply with specific policy agendas — like ESG scores, green initiatives, or any other goal within the Great Reset — and it's already begun.

Eventually, if you are not "green" enough, you may not be able to open a bank account with some of the word’s largest financial institutions. This is just one example of how the Great Reset will affect the everyday American and how it’s going to change our society fundamentally.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break down what this means for you:

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
