Glenn Beck: Callers fire up chainsaws on Earth Day


This message is brought to you by Evil Conservative Industries...

GLENN: Do we have Tim in Cleveland is a forest manager. He's cutting down trees today in celebration of Earth Day. Do we have Tim on the phone? Tim, are you there?

CALLER: Yeah, I'm here, Glenn.

GLENN: Hi, how are you?

CALLER: Good, how are you doing?

GLENN: Well, I'm very good. I'm very good. Where are you cutting down trees, sir?

CALLER: I'm in Ashtabula County, Northeast Ohio. It's a wildlife habitat. My landowner is a big hunter and we're going through his woods and making a couple of half acre clear cuts and that's where he will lay in wait for the deer to come. Deer are very curious creatures and they will come and investigate these clear cuts and he'll shoot them.

GLENN: This is like nirvana here.

CALLER: Yeah.

GLENN: This is not only going to hack off all the environmentalists but all the PETA people, too.

CALLER: That's exactly right.

GLENN: So Tim, how come I don't hear the chainsaws running.

CALLER: I can start it up right now. Do you want to hear it?

GLENN: This is too good to be true. Tim, hang on just a second because I want to savor this moment. Hang on just a second. Let me give our commercial for this half hour and then you start.

CALLER: All right.

GLENN: Stu, this is like Dan, I need Barry White music. This is almost full fledged light some candles, this is eroticism.

STU: I'm just glad it's so good for the Earth on Earth Day.

GLENN: You say is that and it sounds sarcastic.

STU: It sounds sarcastic? No.

GLENN: Give me a little Barry White on the program, will you?

(Break)

(Earth Day spoof)

GLENN: That's right, it is time to go all green. We go back to Tim who is a forest manager. He is cutting down trees in honor of Earth well, not really in honor. We could say in honor of Earth Day, can't we, Tim.

CALLER: Yeah, yeah, absolutely.

GLENN: In honor of Earth Day. That's fantastic. Are you ready?

CALLER: Yeah, I'm ready.

GLENN: Go ahead.

CALLER: I have to yell "Timber" first.

GLENN: You've got to what?

CALLER: I have to yell "Timber" first.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Don't you do that right before the tree falls?

CALLER: Timber! (Chainsaw starting up).

All done. I laid down an Aspen tree with Glenn's name on it and an Aspen tree with Stu's name on it. So you are both involved.

GLENN: That is fantastic. Those are little teeny trees. Don't you have like a big huge oak or something?

CALLER: No, no, we don't cut oak. We cut Aspen and stuff like that and we leave behind the good stuff.

GLENN: Well, I'm looking for somebody else that would be willing to cut down the good stuff, you know. They are not American Elms, are?

CALLER: Well, actually they are. Yes, they are.

GLENN: They are? Because I know those are like here in New York City, you go to Central Park, American Elms, those are a big deal because they are almost wiped out and everything else. So I mean, give me another Elm, just give me another American Elm.

CALLER: I want to hear another American Elm? Coming right up. Let me fire this back up.

GLENN: Because they are so loved here in New York City.

CALLER: Yeah, I know. (Chainsaw starting). I forgot the

GLENN: I don't think you are actually cutting any trees down. Stu, do you think he's cutting any trees down?

CALLER: Yeah, I'm cutting them down.

STU: They must be very small trees.

GLENN: Well, no, they could be small. They're small. They're junk trees. These are, what do you call those trees that are

CALLER: Cull trees.

GLENN: What do you call them?

CALLER: Cull trees, C U L L. Cull trees, poor quality trees.

GLENN: The ones that just kind of, they grow up in the forest, and they are little stupid trees.

CALLER: They are.

STU: This is what's positive here is when you cut down trees for a purpose such as what's happening right now, what usually happens, and this is why the tree density is so much higher in this country than it used to be is that there will be more planted, there are more I mean, when you cut down trees for paper, it's a positive thing because you wind up planting more trees and, you know, over time it's clearly been shown that all these environmental benefits that go to these companies that are supposedly cutting down trees, blah, blah blah, blah blah, they were going to plant them anyway because it's part of their business plan. So I mean, right now if you had only waited a little while to cut these trees down, maybe the government could have given you some money to replant them.

CALLER: Yeah.

GLENN: That's fantastic. Thank you, Stu, for that. That is beautiful.

STU: Thank you.

GLENN: All right, Tim, thanks a lot. I appreciate it.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
