GLENN: Yeah. So anyway, the thing that I did tweet about was the healthcare, and everybody said, "Oh, look, he's given up on healthcare. They're going to go back and retool." And I wrote, "Do not party. Don't celebrate this." Nothing they're going to come back now and they are going to try to compromise. Nothing. Where's the audio? "You shall not pass!" We must be like Gandalf and nothing, nothing can be allowed to pass.

GANDALF: You shall not pass!

GLENN: Tonight you will understand why because I'm going to show you what wrote the bill. It was not Nancy Pelosi. It wasn't Barney Frank.

Do you remember, do you remember I said back in February, this is too outrageous, it's too big, it's too complex. Who's writing this stuff? "Oh, well, you don't understand Rahm Emanuel." This isn't Rahm Emanuel. "David Axelrod." It's not David Axelrod. This is much, much bigger. Well, it has taken me months to track it down, but it is the Apollo Alliance. Let me just give you a few of the people that are part of the Apollo Alliance. These are bios from the website. Phil Angelides has made his mark in California. Oh, I bet he has. Former California state treasurer from 1999 to 2007 and Democratic nominee for governor of California in 2006, Mr. Angelides has been a leader in the movement for sustainable economic progress. Keyword that you must learn: Sustainable economic progress. Why is "Sustainable" important?

STU: That's usually in conjunction with green. Usually "Sustainable energy."

PAT: All during the Seventies

STU: It's expensive.

PAT: everything was not sustainable. The progressive movement of the Seventies was, oh, we can't sustain this population, we can't sustain this economic growth.

GLENN: It is sustainable development is code language for and if you look at the history of it, it's been population growth Zero Population Growth. It has been zero expansion. It is code language, and this is why, if you understand this one concept, then you will begin to understand why these things are being done because the people behind them, the progressives are zero development, Zero Population Growth people.

PAT: And look how effective they are.

GLENN: I know. Well, I mean, he's been a leader in the movement for sustainable economic progress and he was the state California California state treasurer from 1999 to 2007. Who better to understand sustainable economies than the guy who was the treasurer of California? He mobilized investors across the nation to usher in a new era of corporate, social and environmental responsibility.

Then you have Frances Beinecke or something, president of Natural Resources Defense Council. She has been instrumental in curbing global warming, she is a member of the boards of the Wilderness Society, China U.S. Center For Sustainable Development and the New York League of Conservation Voters. Just giving you some of the highlights here.

Robert Borosage, president of Institute For America's Future. He writes widely on political, economic and on national security issues for the nation. He has served as issues advisor to progressive political campaigns including Carol Moseley Braun, Barbara Boxer and Paul Wellstone. He also was a senior issues advisor for Reverend Jesse Jackson. Then on the board of the Apollo Alliance, these are the people that wrote the stimulus package: Leo Gerard, United Steel Workers of America. He is developing strategies to inject the rights of workers into trade agreements. Gerard is a driving force behind Heartland Labor Capital Funds, a network in creating conceptual, financial and educational tools for capital strategies that will inject the welfare of workers into the investment priorities.

Then you have the Executive Vice President of SEIU, Gerald Hudson. Founded the School For Social Change. He's a long time champion of environmental justice. Key words, environmental justice. He has served on the board for Redefining Progress.

We have Mindy Lubber, the president of Ceres, I think, and I have to look that back up. I looked it up last night and it's frightening stuff. She was senior communications director for Mike' Dukakis. She held for a decade a position with a Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group.

We have Nancy McFadden. She was vice president of public affairs of PG&E. She has served eight years in the Clinton administration to chief deputy deputy chief of staff of President Al Gore. Let's see. She's a Bay Area native. She has was appointed to the California state Senate and two governors to serve on the California Medical Assistance Commission.

We have the president of LIUNA, the Laborers' International Union of North America, Terence O'Sullivan. He is the innovator among the newest generation of labor leaders designed to aggressive and sometimes radical approaches designed to increase the power of working people in the 21st century. He began with more than 500,000 collective bargaining members of LIUNA, the foremost labor movement, reshaping the union, one of the fastest, most aggressive and progressive unions in North America. This is a North American international labor union.

Do I have anybody's attention yet? How about Carl Pope? He was the executive director of the Sierra Club. He served on the boards of California League of Conservation Voters. The National Clean Air Coalition, the California Common Cause. Public Interest Economics, Inc. and Zero Population Growth. He was also the political director of Zero Population Growth.

Dan Reicher, Director of Climate Change and Energy Initiatives for Google's venture called Google.org. He makes investments in advanced policy in the areas of climate change and energy development and global health.

Joel Rogers co founded the Apollo Alliance and served as its first chairman. He is a professor of law, political science and sociology at the University of Wisconsin Madison.

I mean, I've got pages and pages and pages and pages of these people. The field director, Ron Ruggiero, field director, he has joined in 2008. He was 15 years organizing, representing and negotiation experience in the labor movement. He comes from SEIU. Most recently as staff director at SEIU, Local 49.

We have Shanelle Smith, a recently named 2009 Ohio political leaders fellow by the Center for Progressive Leadership. We have Joel Thomas. He was Missouri Jobs with Justice. He was with Missouri Campaign for Change. Do you see?

PAT: You are just about to get to the people from the Heritage Foundation here, who served in the Reagan administration? Maybe the first H. W. Bush White House?

GLENN: Now, if you have play John Conyers again from the audio vault where John Conyers says, why should I have to read the bill?

CONYERS: I love these members that get up and say, "Read the bill." What good is reading the bill if it's 1,000 pages and you don't have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?

GLENN: This is not incompetence. This is not arrogance. This is, why do I have to read it; I know who wrote it; I trust them; they know better than I do. That is progressive thinking. You leave it to someone else to administrate. You just play your role. Pass it. Why read it?

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Watch this clip to hear Glenn break down the situation in Rep. Omar's district:

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

Image source: Glenn Beck Program on BlazeTV

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
