Glenn Beck: Gates-gate keeps getting worse for Obama


Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Available in book stores nationwide...

GLENN: Okay. So here you go. Here is the latest on the Gates thing. This whole nightmare with the president, I personally believe the president has real race issues. He has a real problem. I mean, he called his own grandmother the typical white person. I mean, what does that even mean, she's a typical white person, she tenses up around black people. I don't tense up around black people. I do tense up around people who are, you know, engaged in litigation because they're somehow or another different than me. I do tense up around people that will be like, "Yeah, you don't want to really say anything to these people because..." for instance, I'm not tense around anybody, but I'm tense around ‑‑ I'm a very huggy kind of person. Absolutely you hear people are like, "No, they sued people before because of sexual harassment or whatever." Then I'm just like, "Hey, why don't you stand on the other end of the room." "How are you doing over there?"

STU: Like when you're ‑‑ it's the middle of the summer and you're driving through your neighborhood and you see a kid selling lemonade on the side of the road.

GLENN: Don't do it.

STU: I don't want to stop.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: I love their lemonade.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: It's probably very good but I don't want to go near them.

GLENN: I thought of that this weekend. This weekend I was driving in the neighborhood and I saw these kids and there were two girls out there selling lemonade and I thought, yeah. The man is going to stop and buy lemonade from two little girls.

STU: Fox News host.

GLENN: Just a nightmare.

STU: Yeah, that's ‑‑

GLENN: So am I tense around little girls selling lemonade? No. Am I tense because society has made me that way? Oh, yes. Oh, yes. I think that there is a ‑‑ I told you before the paradigm is about to shift in America, and I think what's going to happen is I think we are going to see in our lifetime, and I believe soon in our lifetime. They are pushing the system to the brink. They are pushing the media to the brink, and the media is going to collapse. And I don't know what it's going to be ‑‑ do you think I'm doing all this for my health? I have no idea what's going to shake out. I don't know what format the spoken word or the truth is going to get out on. If they don't cap the Internet, it will be the Internet. Everything else will either transform or die. And what will happen is if these guys in the media don't understand who you are and they don't understand pretty soon, there's going to be ‑‑ the media, they are going to be chased out of their big media centers with broomsticks and torches. It's going to happen.

The same thing with Washington. Same thing with political correctness. There's only going to be one winner here. Political correctness has been jammed down our throat, jammed down our throat, jammed down our throat. And more importantly, there have been most people in America have wanted to make that change. They're not hurtful people. They don't want to hurt anybody's feelings. They want to get along. Who gets up in the morning and is like, "Yeah! I just hate them yellow people." Who says that? Who does that? Who wants to be that person? Are there those people? Yeah, there are those people. But is that who the majority is? No. And so political correctness came out, but then what happened is it went from, yeah, I'm with you on that. I don't want to hurt anybody.

Then it went to, I can use this for power. Just like President Obama is going to be using this now on Thursday to teach America a lesson. Shut up with your lessons! I've had enough of your lessons. And I think soon this country is going to be pushed and you're either going to be forced to go a lot further or we're going to go the other direction. It's not good. It's not good.

So can we play a little bit of the audio? Because I want to get to the exclusive audio we have. Play a little bit of the 911 call here.

DISPATCH: Respond to 17 Ware Street for a possible B and E in progress. Two SPs barged their way into the home, they have suitcases. R‑P 5 ‑ SP. Stand by. Trying to get further.

OFFICER: 52. Ware Street right now, 17?

DISPATCH: 17 Ware Street ... both SPs are still in the house, unknown on race.

GLENN: Why is she bringing up race? Is she white?

DISPATCH: One may be a Hispanic male, not sure.

PAT: But you notice the initial caller didn't until she was directly asked.

OFFICER: Is there an apartment number there?

DISPATCH: Negative on the apartment

GLENN: Yeah, and she said I don't know. They both kind of looked white. I guess maybe one might be Hispanic.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And she felt almost ‑‑

VOICE: Single family yellow house.

GLENN: Why yellow? What are they inferring there? You notice that she almost sounded apologetic.

OFFICER: Stand by. Can you have the caller come to the front door?

DISPATCH: I'm sorry. Repeat?

VOICE: Can you have the caller come to the front door?

PAT: He's asking for the initial caller.

VOICE: She doesn't live there. She's a witness in this.

GLENN: Okay, stop. So here's the ‑‑ here's the audiotape. And if you listen to this audiotape ‑‑ and we'll send it out on our free e‑mail newsletter. You listen to all of this stuff, it doesn't sound bad. But people don't know the history. I mean, sure, you've heard all the history that this guy, you know, is teaching, you know, racial profiling and how not to do it and everything else and he's a good cop and everything else, but we have discovered that President Obama ‑‑ and he has not released this until now ‑‑ I'm trying to work in my head in exactly how he released it to us. But he released it to us the audiotape of what really happened. We have it?

STU: Yeah, sure.

GLENN: Go ahead.

(Audio plays).

DISPATCH: Cambridge badge 228, you out there?

OFFICER: Roger, I hear you, dispatch, go ahead.

DISPATCH: What's your 20?

OFFICER: Just across the intersection of Ridge and Main.

DISPATCH: Roger that. We've got a bank robbery in progress three blocks from you. We're going to need you to drop everything, get over there right away.

OFFICER: That might be a problem, dispatch.

DISPATCH: 10‑4. What's going on, 228?

OFFICER: Well, can you answer me one question?

DISPATCH: Go ahead, 228.

OFFICER: Is the bank robbery suspect black?

DISPATCH: I'm sorry, 228. Could you please repeat the question?

OFFICER: Oh, I'm sorry. Is the bank robbery suspect African‑American?

DISPATCH: That's negative. Why do you ask?

OFFICER: Well, I'm in a wealthy neighborhood right now and I'm trailing what appears to be a black guy. I repeat I'm in a wealthy neighborhood.

DISPATCH: Oh, my. Well, I apologize for interrupting you, 228. What's your plan for the situation?

OFFICER: Well, I feel like first I just pull him over for no reason. Then I'll say insulting and inappropriate things about his daughter, then possibly work into unfairly accusing him of disturbing the peace.

DISPATCH: All because he's black, correct?

OFFICER: Of course. It will have no merit whatsoever. Then I'll try the old point‑and‑plant.

DISPATCH: I'm not familiar. What's the old point‑and‑plant?

OFFICER: Well, basically I point and say, look over there. Then I throw cocaine in his back seat.

DISPATCH: (Laughing). That's a good one, 228. You know, ever since I took this dispatch job, I'm really missing harassing innocent, well spoken and accomplished African‑Americans.

OFFICER: Yeah, I've been slacking lately, too. But now that Barack Obama's in office, I feel like it's our moral responsibility to waste our time and needlessly risk our careers just to prove that whites are superior, because that's just what us white cops do.

DISPATCH: We sure do. Stand by. I'll be sending some backup your way.

OFFICER: Great. What about the robbery?

DISPATCH: You know what? Let's just let him get away with it. He is white, after all. (Laughing).

OFFICER: (Laughing).

DISPATCH: (Laughing). You are too much, 228. Over and out.

STU: That's how it happened.

GLENN: It's weird.

PAT: No wonder.

GLENN: It is weird. It is weird.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
