Glenn Beck: CO2 satellite crashes and burns

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We'll restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama's passion for everything science.

GLENN: Science robotic kind of humor there. Welcome to the program. Because of science, we now know that our evil SUVs are heating up the Earth. Because of science we know it's not any other factor such as the sun. That's so old-fashioned to think that the sun might cause heat or warmth on the Earth. It's not -- it's certainly not warm on the moon now, is it? Sun is still there. What's the difference? Don't think too long on that. "The sun doesn't affect normal temperature changes. You know, maybe there's a problem with some imperfect temperature gauges." And we know that we're about to flood entire cities, cause more tornadoes, have more nuclear explosions until Al Gore removes that slide. And because of science they have alerted us to these dangers and we don't feel, well, stupid, spending $278 million on a satellite that will track carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere. They just launched a satellite yesterday to help save the Earth, and here's the update on how it's doing with all that scientific thinking. A NASA satellite to track carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere failed to reach its orbit during launching Tuesday morning, scuttling the $278 million mission right down the old crapper. By the way, really $278 million, that's no big deal really. I mean, we build museums for more than that.

By the way, "failed to reach its orbit" is another way to say that I think it kind of fell out of the sky and crashed and burned, but only in Antarctica and I hope, gosh, I hope all of that, you know, that fuel that it burned, I hope it wasn't a lot of carbon dioxide because isn't that where the hole is? Or is that on the -- oh, they fixed that? That's weird. Hey, and Antarctica really is a good place for it to land because Antarctica is not warming. Science told us that. During the burning of the third stage, the payload fairing failed to separate as commanded. I hate when that happens. The fairing has considerable weight relative to the portion of the vehicle that's flying, said the manager of the Taurus rocket program. "We didn't have that jump in acceleration." Whoa. Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. I'm not a scientist, but I'm a thinker here. I think I know why this rocket failed. The satellite was on a Taurus rocket? I mean, I've ridden in a Ford Taurus before and, you know, don't get me wrong, it's a sweet ride. It is a lovely car, especially this time of the year, but of course it doesn't have the acceleration to make it into orbit. You know, when I think about rocketing satellites into space, I think of a Bugatti or a Lamborghini. Those are sweet rides, man. But again I'm not a scientist. I'm just a flat earther Holocaust denier clinging to my Bible and my guns.

The satellite fell back to Earth, landing in the ocean just short of Antarctica. Oh, thank goodness, I thought for a second they might kill one of those penguins and then Al Gore would have wept for a week. Gee, I wonder how much of the ice it caused to melt. You know that big flame thing going on before it went out. Scientists have hoped the new data would help them improve climate models -- hang on just a second. Let me just -- improve climate models, better understand carbon sinks like oceans and forests that absorb much of the carbon dioxide. I'm just trying to -- improve the climate models, which the models are telling us that the science is settled -- and better understand the forest and the oceans which eat most of the carbon dioxide. It's a good thing that this thing didn't go up into space because we don't need it anyway. The science, after all, on all of this stuff is, of course, settled.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
