Glenn Beck: Al Gore oopsie


Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

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

GLENN: That's right, my friends. Today our march to socialism, it is so huge, it is so fat, why am I reading -- this is Stu writing something here for me that is making fun of me. I get it, Stu, I'm a little overweight.

STU: Yes, you are.

GLENN: So huge, so fat, so overwhelming, so full of yummy goodness that we had to actually put it into our science update, Part Deux of Al Gore and the march to socialism, science update in about an hour, but here's Part One. What, Stu?

STU: I was going to say Al Gore is the fusion of science and socialism. He is really the guy for both of these.

GLENN: My gosh, you are exactly right, he is. Okay, here you go. How many times have we all heard, "We're going to create five bajillion new green jobs... and we're going to find them, we're going to create them or we're not going to lose them... or we're going to prevent them from just evaporating into space... which is something you won't be able to measure whatsoever, but that's what we're going to do. Green jobs."

Al Gore has been spreading the news that green energy jobs are the future. Not only are they the future, they are already on the rise, and the proof is in the pudding. Oh, wait a minute, pudding. Science, so to speak, is settled on that one. Al Gore was so excited about the rise in green jobs that he is shouting it to the world. Quote: More people work in wind energy industry than the entire coal industry. Wow, wait a minute. We get about 50% of our energy from coal in America. There are more people in the wind-power energy sector than all of coal? First of all, that would show that coal is more efficient, by a lot. Seeing that we get, what, maybe, what, like a toaster in Nebraska may be working on it. Anyway, more people work in the wind energy industry than any other -- than in the entire coal industry. Compelling stuff, and wind energy -- you say something like that, wind energy must be skyrocketing. Or wind energy is so inefficient that it makes more people to make one turbine than to produce similar energy yield be a little of coal. But Al is the expert on this and not me. So I'm just going to keep the old fat mouth shut, or filled with cupcakes, like a good little socialist citizen would. It's such a compelling case that Al Gore is using the "Vastly greater numbers working in wind energy" stat as proof that even more monies from the stimulus needs to go towards green energy. Here's the claim made now by Al Gore: Globally 2.3 million people employed in renewable energy sector. There are already more jobs than there are directly in the oil and gas industry. In the oil and gas industries. In the U.S. there are now more jobs in the wind industry than in the entire coal industry.

Now, I just want to make sure you understand that because you know Al Gore. He would never mislead the nation into a socialist energy system, you know, unless he has the facts on his side. He's a robot. He's nothing but facts, bzzzz, bzzzz, bzzzz. Fact One: Al Gore's facts, not really clear on this one. In fact, Fact Two, Al Gore's facts, completely wrong. 85,000 wind energy jobs cited in the report are "Varied as turbine component manufacturing, construction, and installation of wind turbines, wind turbine operations and maintenance, legal and marketing services and more." So we got the marketers, the construction people, the attorneys as the wind energy. The 81,000 coal jobs counted by the Department of Energy are the miners, just the miners, you know, the guys with the light on their hat. Not the marketers or the -- there's no attorneys involved in this. By the way, the 8100 -- or I'm sorry, 81,000 coal jobs totally also admits truckers who haul the coal from the mine. Also, it's anybody working in a power plant and, of course, all the legal and marketing jobs. But listen, America, we don't have time for honesty. Move, move, move! Everything's collapsing! Time is running out! We've got to act now before the economy collapses and everybody dies!

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.

 

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
