Glenn Beck: Spotlight on Science - true global warming

GLENN: I'm confused, and I usually am, I know, but why do we keep doing the stories, you know, the science is settled on how global warming happened? I mean, why ‑‑ apparently word is out that there was a runaway spurt of global warming 55 million years ago that turned Earth into a hothouse. Hang on. A runaway spurt of global warming 55 million years that turned Earth into a hothouse. The planet surface temperature blasted upwards between 5 and 9 degrees Celsius ‑‑ that's 9 and 16.2 degrees Fahrenheit ‑‑ in just a few thousand years. On a side note the article explains manmade global warming, A/K/A what we're supposedly experiencing now is driven mainly by the burning of oil, gas and coal and has amounted to around .8 degrees Celsius, 1.2 Fahrenheit over the past century. You may recognize that as less than the 16.2 degrees that the Earth did all by its lonesome. And no one knows how or why.

My first thought obviously was those damn SUVs that they drove 55 million years ago. You know, they were run on ‑‑ they must have been huge gas guzzlers. Can you imagine packing a family of six ‑‑ that's when families were six. They would have six, eight, twelve children a long time ago. Can you imagine having twelve dinosaurs in one SUV? Goodness. Wait a minute, how would they take the dinosaur, squeeze him into oil and then put it into the SUV so the other dinosaurs ‑‑ oh, my goodness, Soylent Green. Citgo, it's dinosaurs! Oh, and the fact that Citgo didn't exist, we didn't exist, SUVs didn't exist 55 million years ago. So we have no idea. But it had to be some sort of manmade greenhouse gas, 55 million years ago. What seems clear is that a huge amount of heat‑trapping greenhouse gases natural ‑‑ I'm quoting ‑‑ natural as opposed to manmade were disgorged in a very short time.

So hang on just a second. Greenhouse gases can be natural? What? Who knew? I just thought we were, you know, we were the ones responsible. It was people that were just lighting a barbecue grill underneath all the thermometers from actually is part of the problem and cause of the temperature rise in some areas, but I digress. You would actually have to read things to be able to know that. So why are we learning this now? The never changing science on global warming sure is a changin'.

A trio of Earth scientists led by Richard Zeebe of the University of Hawaii tried to account for the carbon that was spewed out during the PETM ‑‑ that's what scientists call it when we're talking to you lay people. It's actually the Palaeocene‑Eocene Thermal Maximum, which is my favorite maximum, that and Maximum Ride. That James Patterson is fabulous. I'm not even going to bother with all of the scientific jargon here for you because... I'm going to pretend I don't understand it because I'm not a scientist, but I am a thinker. But probably the real reason is I'm, you know, it will change by the time I finish explaining it. So this is all you need to know from the article. Here it is. Our results imply a fundamental gap in our understanding about the amplitude of global warming. Hold on just a second. Quoting again from ‑‑ just say scientists.

PAT: Scientists!

GLENN: Thank you. Our results imply a fundamental gap in our understanding about the amplitude of global warming associated with a large and abrupt climate perturbations. This gap needs to be filled, this gap needs to be filled to confidently predict future climate change, which is weird because I'm pretty sure you were confident predicting the future of global warming. I'm sorry, global climate change. But who am I trying to be consistent? Clearly I'm not a scientist. I mean, carbon for everybody.

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences

Terrorists

  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.

Terrorist

  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Traitors

  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
