Glenn Beck: Your Science Czar is a Commie

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: All right. I made a pretty hefty charge here a minute ago that I quoted Barack Obama saying that healthcare ‑‑ I'm sorry, reparations don't go far enough. They need to be able to get into our schools, they need to get into, you know, colleges and level the playing field and have free universal college, that way it will disproportionately help blacks. He said that about healthcare and also about the green jobs. Let's see if we can see this be implemented now without you know what's going on. Let's look at our science update today. His new science czar, what is this guy's first name, Jones? Van Jones. Van Jones is a guy that was all caught up in the Rodney King trial and he was actually arrested, went into jail in April, got out in August. So he was arrested for some pretty bad stuff apparently. I mean, that's not a night in jail. He said, you know, I was just an angry guy when I went in but when I came out, I was a radical communist. This isn't, you know, 1968. This is in the 1990s. He was a radical communist. He hasn't shed that. He's still a radical. He is still a black nationalist. He is also now your green job czar. How did he go from a guy who was riding the streets, going to jail, becoming a communist to the green job czar? Well, because he said he found the eco movement and decided this is the best way to carry out his agenda. This is just a quote from one of his speeches. He said, I don't want to offend anybody here. I might be too radical for you. Are you with me? He asked. One woman called out, just being real. Quote: They can now put up wind turbines — almost like a windmill, but this is not your mama’s windmill, it’s like a big jet engine sitting up there — and make power. Somebody's going to make a billion dollars deploying that technology (GE). I think it should be you. They have this thing called solar panels. A solar panel is a piece of glass almost. Right now wealthy people can put that on their homes and it cost money to put it there. But once it's up, sunlight hits it and turns it into electricity and powers the house. So you're paying electricity bill, but somebody else is just kicking it. Somebody's going to make a million dollars figuring out a way to get these solar panels made and deployed in our hoods. I think it should be you.

After he was done ‑‑ now, by the way, this quote comes not from some radical rightwing hatchet piece. This is a piece in the New Yorker on Van Jones: After he was through, Jones made his way out of the nearly empty downtown, he says to the reporter, quote: That was my street rap. You get to hear my elite rap later on.

So he's admitting that he's "Working" the program. A few months ago Jones has published a book. It's out called The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems. Hmmm. In it he argues the best way to fight both global warming and urban poverty is to create millions of green jobs. Listen carefully, please. Your country is being hijacked. They are using things like green jobs as a front. They are using healthcare as a front. In the context of Obama style reparations, that's what they're doing. In it, he argues, in his book, The Green Collar Economy, he argues the best way to fight global warming and urban poverty is by millions of green jobs, weatherizing buildings, installing solar panels and constructing mass transit systems. A percentage of these jobs ‑‑ Jones is purposely vague about how many ‑‑ should go to the disadvantaged and the chronically unemployed. Chronically unemployed. Usually there's a reason you are chronically unemployed. He says in his book, quote: The green economy should not just be about reclaiming thrown‑away stuff. It should be about reclaiming thrown‑away communities.

This is yet another community organizer. This is yet another black nationalist in the same way that Reverend Jeremiah Wright is a black nationalist. This is an acclaimed, self‑acclaimed communist who has just written the book, "How one solution, green collar jobs, can fix two problems." Climate, if he even believes it. He wasn't a believer before he went to prison. If he even believes it. Climate will solve inner city poverty. How? Because we'll take money from the people who can afford to have this piece of glass thingy and the jet engine on their house and get them to pay to put a jet ‑‑ I'm just quoting him ‑‑ them to pay to put the jet engine, as he likes to describe it, and piece of glass ‑‑ that I like to call a solar panel ‑‑ on your home. And then on their home. And then on the person's that lives next to you, and the one that lives next to them. And then everybody in the inner city, you know, all the homes in the hood. That's what this is really all about. And America, you need to wake up because this country is being transformed, and if you don't think ‑‑ it's way beyond socialism. It is way beyond socialism. It is into black nationalism.

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:
