Glenn Beck: Another incorrect scientific consensus


Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Now available in book stores nationwide...

VOICE: And now another scenario in which common sense was clearly not applied.

GLENN: You know that old saying that holds no relevance now, "We hold these truths to be self‑evident"? I don't remember where I heard it, quote from some old dude or something. But it seems like common sense, right? We hold these truths to be self‑evident. Common sense. Well, it's a little more complicated than that in the science industry. Some truths are self‑evident but some are inconvenient and others, as we seem to find more and more each day, just aren't true. One of the long‑time accepted truths in the science community was that Earth's atmosphere is protected from solar winds by its magnetic field. Unlike Mars which lost most of its atmosphere due to a solar wind. Scientific consensus. Latest discovery? Earth is losing more of its atmosphere than Venus and Mars. We should just put a big jar around the ‑‑ don't you think we could get, like, Mason to make a giant jar and just put us in the atmosphere in the jar? Wouldn't it be great? It may mean that we may not have an atmosphere as strong as we thought and we're probably all going to burn up by some stray comet or something like that. So it looks like this is just another truth in the science community that we can move over to the not so self‑evident category. If you are like me, you are probably wondering what major study was conducted to reveal and overturn a scientific truth that has been universally accepted? It had to be years and years and years of painstaking research followed by studies and evaluations and conferences and people getting together in places, you know, fancy like Geneva where they could talk about stuff in a foreign language. Christopher Russell, a professor of geophysics and space physics at the University of California‑Los Angeles said, "Three of us who work on Earth, Venus and Mars got together and compared notes," Russell told Discovery News. We said, "Oh, my goodness, what we've been telling about the magnetic shield to people isn't correct." You mean that all these years that we've been fighting the global warming alarmists, all that time spent on writing books and devoting countless hours on air dissecting every flawed opinion, interviewing guest after guest after guest, all I really had to do was take a couple of these dopes out to Carrabba's and show them notes? Hey, you should see this guy's notes, and you should read that guy's notes. Well, another consensus down the drain. I mean, it would be great. We could take them, show each other's notes, I could take them to Carrabba's, we fix global warming, I'd have the chicken trio. It would be a win‑win.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
