VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's march to socialism.

GLENN: Yes, that's right, comrade. The most difficult problem in the fight against terrorism is, of course, what? Education, right? Biggest reason so many young people in the Middle East are out in the front lines willing to blow themselves up is because either the lack of education or that Hamas is educating the kids in the school. "Well, we never have that problem here." I mean, they just don't know the difference between the crap that they're being fed by some nut job terrorist in their schools and the truth, so the battle of socialism is raging here in America and they are targeting our youth. Most people don't even know it. Don't believe me? Try this on for size. Students at a New Jersey elementary school just got a lesson in climate change and solar power from a solar panel manufacturer. Hmmm, I don't know if anybody's noticing the conflict of interest here, but it kind of sticks out at me. How would the school have reacted if I came in and pitched them with this one: Yeah, I'd like to bring in a representative from my company to talk about how our dependence on foreign oil is too high." Well, that sounds really great. "Yeah, and one way to reduce it is for our company to be allowed to start drilling here at home." "Well, what's your company?" "ExxonMobil. So is this a go? Because I've got to get back into my big Cadillac with the horns on the front."

Employees of the Sharp Electronics Corporation at Joyce Kilmer Elementary School in New Jersey recently were brought in to teach a lesson on climate change and renewable energy. The cartoon image of an ailing Earth with a thermometer sticking out of its mouth was the opening slide in their presentation. Quote: It turns out that the temperature of the Earth is actually rising, end quote. Really? How about that. Have you looked at a thermometer this year? I'm sorry, that's -- "You can't do that one day, one year." You're right. Let's look at it the last 10 years. Sharp began its solar academy program in the United States in October 2008. Wow, October. October, November -- whoa, right before Barack Obama was elected as president. "The initiative is based on a similar program in Japan that since 2007 has been presented at 700 schools and 50,000 students." Wow, 50,000 students just in Japan in 12 months. "There's a war raging, the war of ideas, and common sense is losing. It makes business sense," according to Stuart Mitchell, the chief strategy officer for Sharp, who started the American version of the program. Quote: The big picture is you really want to tie your focus on social responsibility as a company into your business models. Quoting: The more that students learn about climate change and the more they learn about the importance of renewable energy, it ties back to feeding into our business model of being in the solar business. Does anybody have a problem with this one? That's not community service. That's indoctrination, jack. But nice job of disguising it, you know, with the subtleness of a bad boon and the stealth of an elephant.

The renewable energy portion of the presentation mentions several technologies including hydro, wind and ocean power, but solar panels quickly become the focus. What a strange coincidence. The focus just somehow shifts to solar energy. Just part of the responsibility tying in with the business, right? I mean, that's the responsible thing to do. Students watched a short video about how solar panels work and then tried a hands-on activity in which they discovered how much work is required to power a 60-watt light bulb with hand cranks compared with using a small solar panel.

When's the last time you had to crank up the light bulbs for your house? "At the end of the class the students were given workbooks and a Sharp brand solar-powered calculator to take home with them." Wow, if solar power can power a calculator, surely it could power the world's biggest economy. Don Chiossi, another fifth grade science teacher, also gave the program two big thumbs-up. "We cover all forms of energy in our classroom but to have people come in from the community and talk about it helps even more." Plus -- quoting -- plus, the kids love calculators. Oh, well, the kids love calculators. Oh, let's not pay any attention to what's going on here. The kids love calculators.

"The students for their part did seem to enjoy the class, though they weren't without questions for the Sharp team." Quote, one student asked, "If you use only solar power, what would you use at nighttime?" See? At the end, at the end we always try to leave you with just a little hope.

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

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."
