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.

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.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

On his TV show Wednesday night, Glenn revealed where Black Lives Matter gets its considerable funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar progressive characters.

Shortly after this program aired, one of the organizations, Thousand Currents, took down their board of directors page, which featured one of these characters.

Michael Rectenwald, a guest on Glenn's show, pointed out the suspicious change on Twitter.

Coincidence?

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
