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 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?

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"
