Glenn Beck: Obama's socialist climate czar

GLENN: Let me tell you something. For those of you who think climate change is real and manmade, you should know this, that -- I mean, you don't have to be a socialist, I guess, to believe in global warming. It's just that almost everyone who does believe in global warming is a socialist. I mean, believes in manmade global warming that now can be fixed and reversed or whatever. And we've got the tools to fix it. Almost everybody who says, "I've got a plan to fix it" is a socialist. And let me just give you this quote. This is from An Inconvenient Book: Kyoto is -- and I'm quoting -- the first component of an authentic global governance, end quote. Jacques Chirac, 2000. It is a global governance idea. I read this weekend about a new green deal that the UN is starting to push, that there needs to be a new deal but it needs to be based on green. And guess who would go ahead and implement that for us. Isn't that great? We could take all of the money that we're spending on the bailouts -- this is really the idea -- take all the money that we're spending on the bailouts and put it into a commission to be able to have a global green society that we could have a revolutionary new government. Scary? Scare you yet? Huh? A revolutionary government, a world body that would concentrate on bringing the world together through clean energy. Wouldn't that be fantastic?

Well, the new global warming czar listed as one of the 14 leaders of a socialist group commissioned for a sustainable world society. Socialists International, an umbrella group for many of the world's social Democratic parties such as the Labor Party over in Great Britain, says it supports socialism and is highly critical of U.S. policies. The group's commission for a sustainable world society, the organization's action arm on climate change, has developed -- says the developed world must reduce its consumption and commit to a binding and punitive limit on greenhouse gas emissions. Mmm-hmmm. Mr. Obama who said that action on climate change would be a priority tapped Mrs. Browner for her new position last month as the White House coordinator of climate and energy policies. This appointment does not need Senate confirmation. She was tapped by the Obama administration. She's been on the board of directors for the National Audubon Society, the League of Conservation Voters and the Center For American Progress. She was also former vice president Al Gore's Alliance For Climate Protection committee member as well. Her name has now been removed from the Gore organization's website. The Socialist International website did not have a copy of her June 30th speech but the agenda for the meeting had her scheduled to speak as part of a panel on how do we strengthen the multilateral architecture for sustainable futures. So in other words, how do we knit ourselves together as a globe?

Also on the panel was Sergey Mironov, speaker for Russian legislature's upper chamber and close ally of Vladimir Putin, Zhang Zhijun, vice minister of the International Department of the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee; Jesús Caldera -- it may actually be Jesus here. I'm not sure -- the former minister of Employment and Social Affairs for the Spanish Socialist Workers Party. That's who she was speaking with. Socialist International bills itself as the world body of Democratic Socialist movements. Its members range from Israel's Labor Party to France's socialist party to those who won the Angolan civil war with the aid of Soviet and Cuban troops. The organization distinguishes itself from violent or revolutionary communist parties. However, some such group, Chinese Communist Party have been invited to its events and guest organizations. The Democratic Socialists of America, not the Democratic party, is listed as the group's U.S. representative. She is also listed as an individual member of the Socialist International but not a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. In its meeting in 2008 in Santiago, Chile, Socialist International endorsed global governance -- that's a quote -- as the solution to the world's problems of climate change and peace. It's working out real well in the Middle East now that we have the blue helmets involved.

Socialist International regularly blasts the construction of fencing along the U.S./Mexico border. The fence was approved in congress with Mr. Obama's vote in the Senate.

You want to know what's coming? All you have to do is, all you have to do is watch the news that isn't being reported in the mainstream media. You know and I know that green is going to play a very large role. And they are going to be able to get green because people like me will tell you, "You know what? Here's the thing, guys. We're not putting any of this money into anything sustainable. We're not putting this money, this bailout money, this $1.3 trillion in stimulus into new energy. We need to take and build some real, real future infrastructure. What we were doing during World War II was building a nuclear bomb. We were building jet engines for the first time. We had something to move into the private sector after the war. Now what are we doing? And so people will say, "Well, wait a minute, hang on. Obama, they are trying to work on new energy." Yeah, but are you doing it with a global framework? See, the only reason I want to invest in green energy, I'll invest in something new but I'll let the private sector do it. The only way I want to do it is if we in the end can be able to have this technology and we can sell it to the rest of the world, pay ourselves out of this debt. But I don't think that's going to happen.

There's one more story here I want to share with you before we move off of this. I read Pravda this weekend. Have you read Pravda, I mean lately? I know, you instead just -- I try to cut down on paper. So I just read the New York Times. Same thing, I know. Here are the headlines on Pravda: Will Obama give in to reparations. Headline number two: Obama prefers to guide his political stars himself, just like Abraham Lincoln. Next story: Sanctimonious hypocritical preaching by the imperials. It's become rather common yearly and sometimes even monthly occurrence in the imperial elites of America as they gallop in on their white horses and read the riot act to the rest of the world, sometimes even to the EU on how to be a good republic. That is rather humorous as far as republics go because the U.S. is definitely a failed republic. Then the next story: The beginning of hope. Obama's election may lend sucker to those who argue that the laws and policies designed to remedy racial discrimination by promoting opportunity and diversity are no longer necessary. Is it the beginning of hope in America? Then: Russian politicians being cautiously optimistic about the new American phenomena, Barack Obama. I love this story: A change for the better. Only Satan could have been worse than the Bush administration. Next story: Eight years of hell are over. Next story: The American election system. And it talks about how the voters in America are completely uninformed and that the systems don't work.

The evil empire, if you will, is back. The Russians are looking to be the great global power again. Whether you like the fact or not, the Cold War is started again, the Cold War has started again and this one may not be just a Cold War because they need the price of oil to go up. Things and events are going to happen to be able to spike that price of oil because they need it. There's -- I just believe that there is, with the green New Deal being proposed now by the UN, with what happened last week with Merkel and Tony Blair and Sarkozy saying that capitalism as we know it is dead and needs to be revamped, in this new capitalism there is a place at the table for the state? That is called fascism. Capitalism is just a vehicle, but when you introduce the state into it, it's fascism. And unless we educate ourselves, unless we really know what's going on, we will have neighbors and friends. And that's why you have to wake people up. Your neighbors and friends will say, "Oh, my gosh, yeah, but we're in so much trouble, we've got to do this." The groundwork is being laid right now by people who -- do you trust the new global climate czar of the Barack Obama administration, somebody who's a member of the socialist party, somebody who likes global governance? Is that who we have become? That's why you need to wake your friends up now because in time the truest thing that was spoken on the campaign trail I think came out of the mouth of Joe Biden and that is, there will be a global event in the first six months. I don't know if it will be in the first six months, but it's coming. And he said, "We will do things that will seem wrong, but you have to trust us." No, I don't think we give our trust out like that. We gave our trust out on many other things like "You'll never violate the value of a dollar."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
