Glenn Beck: March to Socialism - no disclosure?

Watch Glenn Beck weeknights at 5PM ET on the Fox News Channel

GLENN: Well, last night the president gave a speech, ready to spend $900 billion on a stimulus bill or spending bill, but here's what Barack Obama said last night.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Then you get the argument, well, this is not a stimulus bill; this is a spending bill. What do you think a stimulus is? (Laughing). That's the whole point. No, seriously. That's the point."

GLENN: (Laughing). No, it's not. No, it's not. Spending is not the way out of something. Still will you say, you want the stimulus, you want to stimulate the economy? You have two choices, Barack Obama: The government spends it or they allow us to have more of our money. Listen to mine, they allow us to have more money. I've already fallen into their stupid trap. They give me my money back! And they allow me to spend it. You're right, spending. It's just who's spending it. Are we buying it on frickin' condoms? Or do I get to choose? I believe in a free country. I get to choose. That's the difference.

Do you remember when conservatives were dismissed with the same old tired arguments of calling the Obama campaign just nothing but empty tax-and-spend liberal policies? He said last night the whole point of the bill is to stimulate the economy was spending, by the government. If you're going to spend $900 billion, that's the whole point. We would like to know exactly where it's going. I know it's crazy, but think of this. When we were originally told that we were going to be spending, we were going to be spending most of it on infrastructure. Then we found out that it would take years to do that. We heard that there were plenty of shovel-ready projects ready to go. Shovel-ready? At first I thought they were admitting how much of this was BS and you need shovels to get it out but apparently shovel-ready means ready to go, ready to put the shovel in the ground, if it only had funding, we could do it." Well, Barack's hometown, the completely noncorrupt City of Chicago in the completely noncorrupt State of Illinois has their list of shovel-ready projects that they are going to spend your money on. But what are they? I have it... right... okay, I don't have it right here because here's what happened. Mayor Richard Daley said in Chicago that he has compiled a wish list of shovel-ready projects to spend federal economic stimulus funds on should congress approve a plan. Unlike hundreds of other cities, Daly said Chicago will not make its list public. Well, whose money is this? Why won't Daly make this list public? "We didn't put that out publicly because once you start putting it out publicly, you know, the newspapers, the media, they are going to start ripping it apart." Oh, I get it. You won't make it public because the public might realize how stupidly we're spending our money! Well, gee, how dare us for caring. Don't worry, he will let you know soon enough. This is the great part. When you're on a steep downhill road to socialism, you don't have to worry about such things. The state knows it all. They shall not be questioned. Being an uninformed drone, aka useful idiot who is disengaged from the god-like state is just so much easier on you, the worker. How dare you ask where the money is going. How dare you. It's going to social projects, but don't ever call it socialism!

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.

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.
