SEN. BARBARA BOXER, D-CALIF: Let me talk to you.

HARRY C. ALFORD, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE NATIONAL BLACK CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Yes, ma'am.

BOXER: This is friendly. I want us to go back there together. I want you to come with me and John and let's go see these jobs you say don't exist. So what we're going to do...

ALFORD: Yes, ma'am.

BOXER: Good. Put in the record the Pew Charitable Trust report, which says, and I am reading one sentence: "Jobs in the clean energy economy grew at a faster rate than total jobs in the Golden State between '98 and 2007." And it talks about all of that and driven by venture capital and the laws on the books. So we're going to put that in the record.

Then we're going to put the NAACP resolution that passed, saying this: "The NAACP approved the historic resolution addressing climate change legislation for the first time in the organization's history."

ALFORD: What does that mean?

BOXER: Sir, we're going to put that in the record and you can read it because I don't have the time...

ALFORD: What does that mean, though? The NAACP has a resolution, what does that mean?

BOXER: Sir, they could say the same thing about what do you mean. I'm just telling you they passed it.

ALFORD: I've got documentation.

BOXER: They passed it. Now, also, if that isn't interesting to you we'll quote John Grant, who is the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta. Quote: "Clean energy is the key that will unlock millions of jobs and the NAACP's support is vital to ensuring that those jobs help to rebuild urban areas."

So, clearly there's a diversity of opinion...

ALFORD: Madam Chair, that is condescending to me. I'm the National Black Chamber of Commerce and you're trying to put up some other black group to pit against me.

BOXER: If this gentleman... If this gentleman were here, he would be proud that he was being quoted.

ALFORD: He should have been invited!

BOXER: Just so you know, he would be proud that you were here.

ALFORD: It is condescending to me.

BOXER: He's proud, I'm sure, that I am quoting him.

ALFORD: Proud? All that's condescending and I don't like it. It's racial. I don't like it. I take offense to it.

BOXER: OK.

ALFORD: As an African-American and a veteran of this country, I take offense to that!

BOXER: Offense at the fact that I would quote...?

ALFORD: You're quoting some other black man. Why don't you quote some other Asian... or ... you are being racial here. And I think you're getting to a path here that's going to explode.

BOXER: I am going to respond right and I'm going to ask everyone to listen to what I said. First, I placed in the record the Pew Charitable Trust study — very important study for our state, our home state of California.

ALFORD: Fine.

BOXER: Then, I wanted to make a point that the fact is there's definitely differing opinions in the black community, just as there are in my community.

ALFORD: You're speaking on behalf of the black community?

BOXER: No. I am putting in the record a statement by the NAACP.

ALFORD: Why?

BOXER: Because I think it is quite relevant.

ALFORD: I understand the Pew... I understand the Pew study. But why are you doing the NAACP... why are you doing the Colored People Association study with the Black Chamber of Commerce?

BOXER: I am trying to show the diversity of support that we have.

ALFORD: Diversity?

ALFORD: We are referring to the experts regardless of their color. And for someone to tell me, an African-American, college-educated veteran of the United States Army that I must contend with some other black group and put aside everything else in here — this has nothing to do with the NAACP and really has nothing to do with the National Black Chamber of Commerce. We're talking energy and that... road the Chair went down, I think, is God-awful.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

I found that very rude.

And hey, wasn't Boxer the same senator that freaked out when Brigadier General Michael Walsh called her "ma'am"?

Yep! Take a look:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BOXER: Why has it been delayed?

BRIG. GEN. MICHAEL WALSH, U.S. ARMY: Ma'am, at the LACPR is...

BOXER: You know, do me a favor: Could you say senator instead of ma'am?

WALSH: Yes.

BOXER: It's just a thing. I've worked so hard to get that title. So, I'd appreciate it. Thank you.

WALSH: Yes, Senator.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Yeah, don't call her "ma'am," even though that's a word of respect the military requires. But as we pointed out last month, you didn't hear Boxer calling Michael Walsh "brigadier general."

Oh, and I almost forgot: Did you notice that Harry Alford of the National Black Chamber of Commerce called her "ma'am" too? Oh, he sure did! Take a look:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

BOXER: Your address is Washington, D.C.?

ALFORD: Yes, ma'am

ALFORD: Yes, ma'am

ALFORD: Yes, ma'am

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

As you could see, she didn't correct him once. So it wasn't about being called "ma'am" last month; it was being called "ma'am" by a soldier.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
