Glenn Beck: March to Socialism - Cap & Trade?

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

GLENN: Well, you probably heard of the Kyoto protocol. Basically to limit carbon dioxide that each country emits and then they designed a cap and trade system. It was so fantastic, this Kyoto protocol, that Bill Clinton wouldn't sign it. Anyway, so what they can do is they can limit the amount of energy a country can use and if you're under your limit, you can trade your excess to the countries that are over theirs. So in other words, we get X number of pounds of carbon dioxide and Nigeria gets a whole bunch of carbon dioxide credits. They ain't using very many. So why don't we take our money and buy those credits for that invisible gas and give that money to Nigeria? That's helping the planet. It's such an invasion into a country's sovereignty that Jacques Chirac called it, quote, the first step toward genuine global governance. Those are boots that I hear marching, right? Global governance? He was happy about it. By the way, it doesn't sound socialistic at all, but with this economy there's no way that cap and trade could come here now, right? No politician is going to promote raising energy prices in this climate, pardon the pun. Well, Senator Barbara Boxer, the California Democrat, promised to draft a cap and trade legislation for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in as little as the next few weeks and definitely before the end of the year. Oh. Finally a promise from a politician that I actually believe.

Ms. Boxer laid out the following six broad principles but didn't provide specific details concerning future legislation. She said, here they are: A commitment to reducing emissions to levels guided by science to avoid global warming. Translation: This is science being put in its rightful place. And if you agree, if you agree that, you know, it shouldn't happen, then you're a Holocaust denier. The debate over whether dissent is allowed is over.

Setting an enforceable short and long-term emission target. Translation: Less energy for you and higher prices for what you do use. What recession? Establishing a carbon market is goal number three for Ms. Boxer. I don't know exactly what happens to the extra money for the same amount of energy. I mean, what goes into the hands of traders and companies who know how the game of carbon credit system, that's what happens? Remember, the biggest proponent of cap and trade in the U.S. was... Enron, that great -- they didn't play any games. Oh, seriously, they weren't playing with invisible numbers.

Next goal for Barbara Boxer: Investing in clean energy. People are starting to understand that green equals hype. So now they are just saying, they are not saying green energy anymore. They are saying clean energy. You notice that? It was global warming and then it was climate change. Actually I met the individual that actually was responsible for changing it to climate change. It was an advisor for George Bush. They thought it would be less hype, they thought it would be less frightening than global warming. Climate change. Believe it or not, supporting efforts by local and state governments to deal with climate change. What this means is all the states with giant green programs are going to be bankrupt from having green programs, but the federal government luckily can step in because they have unlimited money to help those states that just get along. And then the final one: Supporting developing nations. Now, who's saying we're marching to socialism and the redistribution of wealth? The supporting of developing nations, spreading the wealth in this country just isn't enough. We've got so much growth, let's spread it around the rest of the world, too.

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.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
