GLENN: Dude, how awesome was Earth hour this weekend? Rockin'. For almost an hour on Saturday, cities and people were encouraged to shut off their lights for an hour to raise awareness about energy conservation and the threat from climate change. Don't tell me you missed it. How could you? I mean, people were shutting off their lights... and stuff. It was probably like really dark, you know, and hard to see. Really? You missed it? It's so weird. From what I'm reading in the media, it was a huge success and Reuters said billions of people took part in the event. They also say that because of a couple of cities, you know, turned off lights for an hour that, you know, they also, they had a mandate and governments had to follow that. So still not ringing a bell, the whole Earth hour thing, huh? Of course, even though billions turn off their lights, there was still a few hiccups that the activists don't want to mention. You know, they were minor, you know. And probably good explanations for the hiccups like Times Square in New York City. Apparently it was still pretty bright with the lights off there because well, I mean, it just looks like there were a lot of lights still on. We put the pictures of what New York City looked like during Earth hour and it was well, you'll see it in the newsletter. Sign up for the free newsletter at GlennBeck.com. Maybe the city had already laid the guy off who was supposed to turn the switch off or more likely it was, you know, a nonunion person that was asked to switch the lights off and that person mysteriously disappeared minutes before Earth hour. So the lights on Times Square, they still looked like they were blazing, but that's all right because billions of other people, you know, they all participated in by the way, Las Vegas turned their lights off on the strip for an hour. Pictures at GlennBeck.com and in the newsletter. The problem as far as, you know, making the point on energy conservation and global warming, when you look at that picture, you can see an endless line of cars. I mean, the cars were still I guess they could have turned the lights off on the cars as they were still driving around but I don't know if that would have so the problem is, you know, now that the 80 bajillion lights in Las Vegas are running 24/7 again, you know, really kind of makes that whole hour that the environmentalists got kind of I mean, did they turn the slot machines off? I'd like to know that. This did he turn the bells and the lights off inside where there were people playing with the slots? And in an effort to illustrate just how much people can save by turning off their lights you know what, hang on. I've just got to turn off the lights here in the studio. Well, now I can't read any of it. Okay, I've got to turn the lights back on for just a second because I can't anyway, in an effort to illustrate just how much people can save by turning off the lights and conserving energy, the UN said that they saved $81,000 by shutting down the outside lights for an hour. When they got called out on that, the actual number came to no pun intended came to light. It was a bit smaller. It was well, it was close to $81,000. It was $102. Of course, I mean, the UN was just probably factoring in the usual added cost of corruption and bureaucracy in that $81,000, you know, an hour figure. It was probably just you know, we were funneling money over to anyway, I'm not sure exactly. But finally perhaps the final nail in the coffin that Earth day was an epic failure even though billions participated, I mean, not that it was a failure. I mean, it had a couple of hiccups. Drew Johnson, the president of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research took a little drive by Al Gore's mansion during Earth hour. You may remember Al Gore. You remember, he's the guy that started the whole global warming movement. There may have been some global warming breaking news or something, some documents that had just come through and Al Gore had to read them because Al Gore may have left a few lights on. The spotlights that usually illuminate the mansion were off. I mean, he keeps them on all the time? That's weird. Are you sure they're spotlights, not just in some sort of angelic glow? I'm not Gore had his TVs on. You could see the bluish hue and the light movements. I mean, you stalkers know exactly what I'm talking about. And, of course, even Al Gore during Earth hour can't shut off the all important flood lights that shine on the trees on the driveway leading to the mansion. I mean, if he didn't light up his trees, how would everybody know that he loves trees and he's so green?

Al Gore Leaves The Light On For Ya

Update, Al Gore said he did honor Earth hour. National Post asked a spokesperson if the Gores were asserting that Drew Johnson was mistaken about seeing the lights at the residence. They responded, correct. Let there be no light, said Al Gore, and there wasn't.

Bill O'Reilly: Adam Schiff is in 'wonderland' during the Senate impeachment trial

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, Bill O'Reilly gave his latest take on the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, and explained why he thinks House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is like "Alice in Wonderland."

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Watch this clip to hear Glenn break down the situation in Rep. Omar's district:

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

Image source: Glenn Beck Program on BlazeTV

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
