Cap n Trade bill



Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Now available in book stores nationwide...

GLENN: So one big question that I have been getting lately is who's benefitting from this cap and trade bill that the House is probably going to pass tonight. House speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband have invested between $50,000 and $100,000 in T. Boone Pickens clean energy fuels legislation which could benefit from the legislation. California Democrat favors to boost the use of natural gas. Nancy Pelosi says, well, that was my husband's investment; I don't know anything about it. Uh huh, uh huh. Let's see. Who else is benefitting here? Whoa. Representative Edward Markey from Massachusetts. Stu, what's the name of this bill?

STU: Waxman Markey.

GLENN: Markey. He's one of the lead authors of the bill, favor alternative energy sources, investments between 100 I'm sorry, between $51,000 and $115,000 in the Firsthand Technology Value Fund at the end of last year. Three of the top 10 holdings in the Ohio fund are solar energy manufacturers. Representative Joe Barton, ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce committee was paid between $2500 and $5,000 from Carrizo Oil and Gas for oil exploration on his property in 2008. I don't think that's really no, I don't think that counts. 2008 he also sold shares in Reliant Energy, a Houston power plant operator, and bought stocks in EOG Resources which calls itself one of the largest independent oil and gas companies in the U.S. Mr. Barton is a strong advocate for the oil industry as opposed to limits on emissions of so called greenhouse gases that Mr. Markey has advocated. So he's a big loser in this. Jeff Duncan, spokesperson for Mr. Markey, said the congressman has a diverse portfolio of mutual funds and doesn't exercise any individual discretion over fund investments. Uh huh. Top members of the Senate Energy and Natural Resource committee which is handling the legislation in that chamber also held stakes. Jeff Bingaman, Democrat from New Mexico, $22,000 invested in energy companies. As of December 31st, Mr. Bingaman under his wife's name held between $15,000 and $50,000 in Energy Future Holdings Corp. That is a Dallas energy holding fund with former Secretary of State James Baker. 2008 the senator bought and sold between $2,000 and $30,000 in coal holding companies, Arch Coal, Inc. in Tulsa, Oklahoma. And also in another energy company.

There are people that have made all kinds of deals. There are people that are going to be directly profiting from this cap and trade. If you look at the legislation without the 300 page amendment that, was it Waxman that put that in today? The 300 page amendment that went in last night that nobody's read yet. If you look at the legislation that people have read, there is only one real loser and that is the consumer. You are the only one without a special interest group, and they believe they can continue to railroad you over and over and over again. I don't think it's enough to call your congressman and just say, "Hey, I respectfully, you know, would like to know how they're voting." I don't think it's enough just to call they will and say, "Hey, I'm against it. Just let them know." I think you need to tell them you will actively campaign against them if they vote for it or they don't vote. However, if they don't stand against it, you will actively campaign against them. Make a commitment to yourself today that anyone who is for more federal power and control and a minimum tax of $140 per year each family, a minimum, that's their estimates. When's the last time congress was right about an estimate on the low side? A maximum of, I think it's $3500 per family. We don't know what this is going to cost. We just know it's going to cost an awful lot of money because it's going to affect absolutely everything.

Let me give you a can we play the audio from WRVA? If we have the audio from WRVA, this is the governor of Virginia on the phone either doing a, you know, Ask the Governor kind of thing, and he's on and they are talking about cap and trade and they've got a guy who is for cap and trade in the audience on the phone. Listen to this exchange.

CALLER: This is Joe.

GOVERNOR: Hey, Joe.

CALLER: Oh, sorry, I'm a little nervous. Governor, thank you for your work (inaudible). I think you are doing a good job and appreciate your support for cap and trade and universal healthcare.

GOVERNOR: Absolutely, Joe.

CALLER: My question is if federal government fails, will you please try to implement a version of cap and trade and universal healthcare in Virginia? Will you do that? Can you do that for us?

GOVERNOR: Well, Joe, yeah. Let me take them both.

VOICE: Conservatives by the way, at this point fasten your seat belts. Go ahead.

GOVERNOR: It would be difficult for me to do universal cap and trade as governor if the feds don't do it. I do think we've got to have a cap and trade or equivalent system to start to control carbon emissions, and we have to do it in a way that, you know, deals with our environmental challenges, doesn't overly cripple industry but that also is a strong enough leadership step so that there's a meeting of world nations at Copenhagen in December. We really need India and China to do it, too. You know, we don't want to do it they need to do it because they are such growing economies.

CALLER: Well, they won't do it period but that said.

GOVERNOR: I think they will. There are some things that China's doing that's ahead of us right now. But they are growing economies at a pace where they have their own challenges. But if we do not walk into Copenhagen in a leadership position, they are going to not do anything, either. So I think we do need to move. But a cap and trade program just in one state frankly I do not think is that workable.

CALLER: Well, let's say for the sake of argument Virginia were the only state to do something like that. We wouldn't become the most business friendly state anymore. There would be manufacturing in particular, they wouldn't be looking at Virginia, would they?

GOVERNOR: Right. This is something that is much better done either on a very huge regional basis or a national basis. That doesn't mean that

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: Okay, stop looking at our country as anything but what are they trying to do? We are in a global economy, right? That's all they are going to say: We're in a global economy. Then our country is like a state, and the world is like our country. You can't do this! If you think that China is going to do this because we're leading, they are going to laugh at us! No, actually they are going to be pissed at us because we're not going to be able to afford our debt! You think India? They don't want to have you seen the river over there? I mean, it's like sacred. No, it's not. It's full of poop and stuff. I mean, nobody wants do you think they want to live like that? No! Men want to pull themselves out of the muck and if they can do it, they will do it. They are not going to go in cap and trade. It's suicide. If doing it in just Virginia makes it so unfriendly to business, then why would we be doing it in the U.S.? I mean, doesn't that make the U.S. unfriendly in business? Yes! Yes. Yes. Yes.

And these people know it. They are either the dumbest people to ever walk the face of the Earth, which I think some of them are; they are just greedy and just want their own power and their own control, which I think some of them have; or they believe in a different system other than the republic, which I think some of them do. They have exposed themselves as incompetent, they have exposed themselves as wicked, they have exposed themselves quite honestly I think as treasonous. I think some of them are treasonous. They have exposed themselves.

Now, the question is are there enough people in America still that believes in liberty and freedom and the Constitution. We are giving them the kind of power. This is the only power that FDR really wanted. He wanted control of the interstate commerce clause. He needed that control. If he had that control, he could get into every aspect of your life. So he controlled everything. The government can expand. This is the rest of it. Once they have cap and trade and God forbid they have healthcare it's done.

Remember I told you two years ago they're going to nationalize our industries, they are going to nationalize they are first going to nationalize our banking systems. They are going to take our financial systems and then they are going to nationalize industry and then they are going to nationalize energy. Well, gee, gang, we're already the first one is technicalities. No. Does the government, have they nationalized the banks? No. Do they control them? Absolutely they do. Are they the major shareholders? Absolutely they are. Have they nationalized General Motors and Chrysler? No. Do they absolutely control them? Yes. Energy is next. Then healthcare. And it's all about the apparatus. They are actually, they actually have the audacity to say that all of this tax money is going to go back to you. Excuse me? All of the tax money is going to come back to us? When has that ever been done in Washington? If you could give me one example, I'd love to see it. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is running from cap and trade. The rest of the world is running from socialism. And we're running right towards it.

Tonight on television at 5:00 I'm going to talk about Chris Dodd. You know this whole scandal of Countrywide and sweetheart deals? Well, they've been investigating Chris Dodd now for a year, we've been waiting for the report to come out. We found out earlier this week that Bank of America says that they haven't released any of his documents because no one from congress has asked them for the documents and issued a subpoena. How can you investigate someone when you don't even have the original documents? Why hasn't a subpoena been issued? Well, we did our investigation. We found. Because the ranking Democrat has to issue it. He doesn't want to issue it because he's afraid what it will lead to. Well, isn't that the point? What will it lead to?

Then you have the you have John Conyers. He won't investigate ACORN. He's the head of the judiciary. He won't issue an investigation, ask for an investigation on ACORN. He said yesterday in a press conference that the powers that be told him to back off. Well, about an hour later when the press did a bit of their job and said who are the powers that be that told them to back off ACORN, they said, well, that would be John. What, is he Bob Dole all of a sudden? Bob Dole told Bob Dole to back off. John Conyers told John Conyers to back off. Maybe he's insane, which I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Either that or something else is going on. Who are the powers that be that decided against ACORN? There is corruption at the highest levels in our government and it has been there for a while, a very long while. I believe we are playing the end game. I think we are seeing what has been planted, the seeds that have been planted a long, long time ago.

You know the AmeriCorps IG Walpin that we had on? There's more on this story. It's not just the IG of AmeriCorps. There are others that now have been fired. We have the inspector general of Amtrak. We have the inspector general for the International Trade Commission. And when you see the links and we're going to spend some time on this tonight. When you see the links of these people, what they were investigating, you can't help but ask, we are in Chicago style government. They are taking all of the investigators out. The investigator general for TARP, he was told he now works for the treasury department. So wait a minute. The investigator general has to answer to the head of the treasury and he is supposed to look over how the treasury is doing it? Boy, that sounds independent. There's bad corruption, and we'll show it to you tonight at 5:00 on the Fox News Channel. Your phone calls right around the corner, 888 727 BECK. 888 727 BECK.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

(Left) Photo by Charles McQuillan/Getty Images/(Right) Video screenshot

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."
