Glenn Beck: Gore says bring on Global governance

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We will restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama's passion for everything science.

GLENN: So glad that he said that during his inauguration speech because, I mean, you know, Inauguration Day is the day you say, "Let's stop with the burning witches at the stake." You know what I mean? Let's stop with all of the, you know, the magic that we were dabbling in over the last eight years, let's restore science to her rightful place. And I know your scientific brain had a week off to relax because as you know, this show is filled with such deep science that it can be a little mentally challenging at times. It really or what was it the people said? I don't it was something about being mentally challenged. I don't remember. I'm not a scientist, of course, but Al Gore is.

What was that? Okay, I'm being told that technically that he's not officially a scientist but I'm sure he's got a lab jacket some place. He's back to brag about all the scientific brilliance that Barack Obama has brought into the Oval Office to save the country and the planet since January. He started his statement in the United Kingdom with this:

GORE: I bring you good news from the United States.

GLENN: Okay. Honestly I thought he was about to say, "Comrades! I bring you good news from the Western front!" Which is pretty much, pretty much what he did say.

(Playing Obama National Anthem).

GLENN: He waited a minute or two and then went on later to admit what the news was all about. He told a fawning audience about the good news of the Waxman/Markey cap and trade bill which he said was just a step in the right direction. Let me just ask you a question here. Again I'm not a scientist. I don't have my lab jacket on. But if 1400 pages is just a step in the right direction, how many pages do we need to get to the actual destination? Gore then went on to say that the bill will, quote, dramatically increase the prospects for success.

This is a key point. Someone sent me a quote about the passing of the cap and trade bill that said, quote: Never have so few stolen so much from so many to accomplish so little. And, of course, that's absolutely true. But the one part where you are going to get no argument from the left or scientists, you know, or anybody is the last part: To accomplish so little. There is no one in the world who will tell you that this bill will actually help the climate, no one. Not one, nowhere, either side. Nobody. The only thing that they will tell you is if this bill gets through the Senate and if the president signs it and if all the science is correct and if, unlike Europe, the system succeeds in lowering emissions and if our actions inspire China to forego economic growth in favor of the environment, which is definitely going to happen, and if India also is inspired in the same way and if all other countries also agree and if once everyone agrees, implements and succeeds for 40 years, four consecutive decades without any interruption, then in 150 years or so we may see some benefit to the climate. That's what they'll tell you. There is no one saying that cap and trade implemented on the world's biggest country will do any, any of that by itself. And that's why Al Gore says it's only dramatically increasing the prospect of success. But that's not the real story here. This is what it really comes down to. This is Al Gore explaining what sort of change we're really getting ready for. Listen to this.

GORE: But it is the awareness itself that will drive the change. And one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements.

GLENN: Okay. Global governance. This is exactly what Jacques Chirac talked about. He said back in 2000 when he this is what he said, quote on cap and trade, quote: Cap and trade is the first component of an authentic global governance, end quote. The former EU environment minister admitted that the global version of cap and trade is, quote, about the economy and leveling the playing field for big businesses worldwide. Let me say that again. The minister of the environment for the EU said the global version of cap and trade is, quote, about the economy, about leveling the playing field for big businesses worldwide, end quote. But don't worry. That shouldn't panic you at all, that shouldn't bother you at all. After all, we're all socialists now. And apparently we're all scientists now, too. Just ask Al Gore.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
