Happy Green Holiday!



GLENN: Oh, this green nonsense. Why he had in USA Today, donations to environmental groups, they say, eco friendly apparel and housewares made of recycled materials, the Christmas gift. Really? To who? According to an October survey for Conservation International, whatever the heck they are, they found out that more Americans that ever want to give or receive green gifts this year. So is that up to, like, four people in America? Dan, Stu, let me ask you a question. If I gave you a, I don't know, a hemp bag for Christmas, would you be thrilled?

STU: Oh.

DAN: Oh, yeah, especially considering that New York Times article. I'd be psyched.

STU: I would actually I think, Glenn, use the temp bag to carry aerosol cans and coal.

GLENN: I believe I would, too. They are saying over 50% of the American people now want something green for Christmas. I say this study is what scientists call a load of bullcrap. I don't want to have a tote bag when I could have an iPhone. I don't want to have a goat donated in the my name to some third world country. I really don't. If I get a card from anyone who says I bought a goat for you and it's in Africa, I say, well, that's really good. That Christmas present sucks. I want something cool from the Sky Mall catalog!

You know, I've been thinking about getting Raphe a slot car set. I know, I know, it says in the catalog for 8 and older. He'll grow into it. I'll show him how. Can you imagine the disappointment in your kid's face if, you know, you were going to give him a cool present and instead you bought him a carbon offset? "No, but Raphe, Raphe, Raphe, Raphe, this is the way Daddy can drive you in the big SUV and we won't be hurting the Earth." We would both never stop crying, for the love of Pete. I don't care how good giving green is for the planet, I want stuff that takes 8 D batteries. I want stuff that lights up. I want stuff that makes noise. I want a remote control helicopter that looks like the one from Magnum PI. That's what I want. I want a life size C3PO from Sharper Image. I want a good old-fashioned Christmas. I don't want a hemp tote bag! I don't know a soul -- I take it back. Besides Liz who works for Fusion magazine, I don't know a soul that wants a hemp bag. You know what, get Liz on the phone. Can you get Liz on the phone? I bet you Liz doesn't even want a hemp bag. She'll say she does: "Oh, no, that would be good." But at home she would be, I can't believe he gave me a hemp bag. Oh, I hope she says yes because Christmas bonuses are right around the corner. I'm buying her a goat. No, no, I'm not going to because that would make her feel good because she would be like, and Glenn took his own money and bought a goat. I'm going to steal a wallet from some environmentalist and then I'm going to take and buy a goat for her.

Can you get her on the phone? Is she there?

STU: No, Glenn, she just walked away from her desk a few minutes ago.

GLENN: Did she? How convenient. You know why? Because she knows she has to be on record as an environmentalist saying, "yes, I'll take the hemp bag." I don't remember the amendment number. I'm sure it's in there some place, but I think we have a constitutional right to give and receive as much crap at Christmas as our credit cards will allow. I'm just sayin'. You know who doesn't like this stuff for Christmas? Terrorists. Yeah, terrorists. Instead of asking Santa for neat stuff like striped socks and pink shirts, they want you to ask for causes. Yeah, I'd say no way. I say if we start giving green, the terrorists win, and not on my watch, brother, not on my watch.

They actually have that green Christmas display. I was in San Francisco. They have this big green Christmas display in the windows. I couldn't take it. By the way, in the, you know, in the book I talk about what it's really all about. Hey, Stu, did you see what happened with the UN?

STU: No, not today.

GLENN: In the book I tell you what this is really all about, you know, and what the science is and how Al Gore has turned it all upside down on its head and actually inverted the two charts of CO2 and warming. It's actually the other way. Warming causes CO2. So I talk about all of that but then the real answer that I was looking for is why is this happening. Why is this happening? Because it's about global socialism. It's about international taxes.

The Law of the Sea treaty, you know what they want to do on the Law of the Sea treaty. That's give away our right to the ocean. We have to go to the UN. So if anybody ever wants to drill in the ocean, they'll have to go to the UN and ask permission. And they'll have to pay for that. And they have to have two sites that they want to drill in. And the UN says, okay, these two sites, our geologists have looked at it. You get that site but you're also going to drill this site but we get everything that we find in that site. Okay? That's what the Law of the Sea treaty does. It's fantastic, if you're a communist.

Here's what it's really all about. Look at this. Last year's budget at the UN was $4.17 billion. Now next year's budget is $7 billion. That's kind of weird, isn't it? $3 billion increase for the United Nations? What's going on with that? What's happening there? How are they going to pay for that? They say it's the largest increase in history. How are you going to pay for it? Ah, carbon taxes. Wouldn't that be great? Wouldn't that be great? If we could just tax everybody, that will solve everything.

You know, let me ask you this: Do you think one of the tenets, the central tenets of global warming is wrong? Do you think it's possible that one of the central tenets of global warming is wrong? No. Of course not. Absolutely not. I mean, unless you look at the facts, absolutely not. If you watch An Inconvenient Truth, you'll see Al Gore telling you how extreme the weather is getting and how it's getting worse and worse. Not in 100 years in the future but right now it's getting worse and worse and worse. Really? It will fact is it's been getting much worse for a while now. The Sunday times from the U.K. had an article that echoes what I talk about in the first chapter of "An Inconvenient Book," that the death rate due to extreme weather has dropped by around 98.7% from the 1920s to today. CO2 has been skyrocketing. Everything's getting worse. We're all going to die.

Well, wait a minute. We're all going to die? Death rates from extreme weather have gone down by almost 100%. Research was done by Indur Goklany -- I think that's how you say his name.

STU: Goklany maybe?

GLENN: Anyway, we talked to him on the air about a year ago. He wrote a book called The Improving State of the World. It gives all sorts of stats about how our air is more cleaner, our water is more pure, we're avoiding death now better now than ever before. The most obvious example, and there are tons of them, is heating oil, natural gas. How many people in Iowa right now would freeze to death? How many people do you think would freeze to death if it wasn't for natural gas heating oil?

By the way, to put it in perspective, you're about 80 times more likely to die from TB than from extreme weather. So what's the opposing side? The opposing side, Greenpeace, you know, went right into the exact strategy of defense that they always do. You know, it's like they're reading An Inconvenient Book and, you know, then they wrote the press release from that and that is the research group that released this, known for being in the pay of the world's biggest oil company. That's, they're in bed with big oil. You are either too stupid to get it or you're part of it. That's the Progressive way. That's exactly what the Progressives used to do around the turn of the century, the ones that Hillary Clinton is modeling herself after. The Progressives, they had one strategy. This is the way. It is socialism and if you don't get it, you're either too stupid and just need reeducation or you're part of that big evil corporate monolith that's trying to stop it all.

They didn't say that the research was wrong. It just must be the big evil oil has a plot to keep people alive to move the statistics in their favor, which they kind of do. See heating oil.

I was watching the reviews of the book come out on Amazon.com. I love these people. I mean, I laugh because they have clearly not read the book. One was said, said that my claim on saving lives, the deaths from natural disasters have gone down 98.7% since the 1920s. They say that claim was misleading that, quote, yes, these things are true but they have nothing to do with each other, end quote. Really? Why is that? I mean, Al Gore says most of our people live on the coastlines, that we now have this coastline mentality. We've all moved out there. Death should be going up. The reason for the massive drop in weather-related deaths comes from innovations, better warning systems, better flood defensives, stronger buildings, earthquakes. Why is it, why is it every time there's an earthquake in Mexico, all these people die, but earthquakes can happen in San Francisco and people survive. Why is it? Is got on our side? I'll have to ask Mike Huckabee's God to find out. Is God on our side? No. Innovation is on our side, American ingenuity is on our side. These incredible innovations built on the back of cheap energy and strong economies. You know, it's not something that you have to guess at. Look at the difference, what happens to us, you know, in Haiti when a hurricane hits, between Haiti and what happens in the United States of America. Maybe the solution isn't trying to control global weather and instead just keep as much of the $26.5 trillion that Al Gore wants to spend on climate change, make our economies, our warning systems, our buildings and our flood defenses stronger.

Wait. Wait, wait. I just had an idea. Think how many cool slide shows you could make with $26.5 trillion. Unless the Government is making them, I bet they can make a lot of slide shows but maybe it's just me.


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."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
