Glenn Beck: Hidden deep in the Climate Bill

GLENN: We're going to do a control case, here, just a little control case. Just hypothetically speaking here on a control case. Hypothetically speaking, a Republican, a Republican chairperson, Republican chairperson of, let's say an energy and commerce chair decides to present a bill and for fun let's say it's a global warming bill, and in this Republican global warming bill let's say that it was close to 1,000 pages long and it is of, quote, the utmost importance, even quote, especially if we, you know, hate mongers actually care about the planet. Remember, hypothetically you care about the planet, and this is the utmost we've got to pass this bill. Let's just say that that Republican chairperson was confronted with a detail from the bill that he wrote. He was the author. Remember, he was the author. So now let's say that this author of a global warming bill that is of the utmost importance to save the Earth forgot some of the information in it. Would this oversight by a Republican chairperson on a bill which he authored be considered acceptable by the Democrats or the Republicans? I'm going to go with big fat no on that one. But for fun let's say this whole situation hypothetically was a Democratic chairperson of the energy and commerce committee who wrote the bill, wasn't aware of its contents, instead blindly followed the scientists from the United Nations. Yeah, but that would never happen, right?

VOICE: Before I ask the question to counsel, did you know that was in this bill?

VOICE: Are you asking me?

VOICE: Yes, sir.

VOICE: Well, I certainly don't claim to know everything that's in this bill. I know that we left it to we relied very heavily on the scientists, on the IPCC and others and the consensus that they have that there is a problem of global warming, it's having an impact and that we need to try to reduce it by the amounts that they think we need to achieve in order to avoid some of the consequences. That's what I know, but I don't know the details.

VOICE: I'm asking a question

VOICE: that rely on the scientists.

GLENN: This is unbelievable. Remember, he relied on the UN scientists to put a lot of information in. UN scientists, the IPCC, who we relied on putting a lot of stuff in here. "I can't say because we relied on the scientists who were telling us about global warming." The details are now coming out about this bill, and you can bet that this is not one of the pieces that Waxman didn't know about. Quote: An eligible worker, specifically workers who lose their jobs as a result of this measure, may receive a climate change adjustment allowance under this subsection for a period of not longer than 156 weeks, 80% of the monthly premium of any health insurance coverage up to a maximum payment of $1500 in relocation allowance and job search expenses not exceeding $1500. That's in the climate bill. For three years. If you lose your job because of anything in this bill, the federal government provides this to you for 156 weeks.

Remember the March to Socialism? You know, remember that a while back, you know, in our we talked about it, the climate bill? It cited Spain's woes with the cap and trade program. Studies show that only one in ten green jobs that are created is permanent. For each permanent green job created, 2.2 jobs are lost elsewhere in the economy. This bill is the end of our republic. This bill puts almost everyone on the dole. Obama says that he will create 5 million new green jobs. If he does that, according to the research now coming out of Spain that did this program, he will cause 11 million jobs to be lost elsewhere in the economy. So 11 million people under the climate bill will start getting climate change adjustment allowances. 11 million people getting $3,000 to find a new job and that's just the beginning of it. I'm not a scientist, but I do have a calculator. That's $33 billion for the one clause on one page in a 1,000 page bill that our representatives who wrote it say "I don't really know everything that's in this thing." That doesn't count paying 80% of all those people's health insurance costs. Do you think this is ever going to stop? I'm starting to think this bill that trusted the scientists to write it instead of the authors would have been a better fit in the March to Socialism quite frankly.

VOICE: You've been listening to Spotlight on Science, exclusively heard on the Glenn Beck program, America's number one source for science and science related items.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
