GLENN: You know, I know that we just played some stunning audio from Van Jones and the idiots are going to say things like...

PAT: Oh, what are you talking about? That was nothing to it. That was a long time ago, like you've said.

GLENN: March.

PAT: You admit it was clear back   how old were you in March?

GLENN: The same age I am now. March.

PAT: Stu, how old were you back in March? What grade were you in?

STU: The same grade.

PAT: I mean, please, it's ancient history. The guy wasn't even the green jobs czar.

GLENN: He was the green jobs czar.

PAT: He wasn't even the green jobs czar.

GLENN: Like weeks after he gave this speech, weeks.

PAT: And he transformed, he changed his mind, he became a capitalist... when he   there's no way he could have known. There's no way.

GLENN: Who? The president?

PAT: No.

GLENN: He couldn't have known that Van Jones was a known communist.

PAT: How is he going to know? What, does he have Google or something, the White House? They don't let him have that. I bet you the president doesn't even get to look at his Blackberry. And if he does, it can't get online. Maybe it's like mine. It's always looking for service.

GLENN: Right, okay.

PAT: And then there's no   I mean, you can't just willy nilly hop on the Internet as president of the United States and look for information.

GLENN: Okay. Stop the music for a second. Here's what I want to do. I want to play the quotes from Van Jones. This is from March. Play them   

PAT: Oh, I want to play the quotes from Van Jones, March.

GLENN: I'll just play them. Could you play the whole thing, not the short version but the whole thing in context first.

VAN JONES: All we do is take out the dirty power system, the dirty power generation in a system and just replace it with some clean stuff, put a solar panel on top of this system. We don't deal with how we are consuming water, we don't deal with how we're treating our other sister and other brothers' species, we don't deal with toxins, we don't deal with the way we treat each other, if that's not a part of this movement, let me tell you what you'll have. This is all you'll have. You'll have solar powered bulldozers, solar powered buzz saws, and biofuel bombers and we'll be fighting wars over lithium for the batteries instead of oil for the engines and we'll still have a dead planet. This movement is deeper than a solar panel, deeper than a solar panel. Don't stop there. Don't stop there. No, we're going to change the whole system.

GLENN: When will America wake up? The left has started a revolution no different than Hugo Chavez. When Hugo Chavez was elected, he was elected by Democratic process. But he did not tell the people when he was running that he was a communist. Can we stop that this man, Van Jones, is an average everyday capitalist American? If we don't deal with how we treat each other. This again is code language Marxism, language. How are we this is social justice. Now we're into green jobs and social justice.

VAN JONES: If that's not a part of this movement, let me tell you what you'll have. This is all you'll have solar powered bulldozers, solar powered buzz saws

GLENN: Stop for a second. Let's just take these, take these one at a time. Solar powered bulldozers. That is for breaking new ground and building new buildings and expansion. These are zero growth people. So expansion. You don't want to expand. That's bad for the environment. Then what did he say? Solar paneled?

PAT: Solar powered buzz saws.

GLENN: The buzz saws, that's for cutting the tree down, then what's next.

VAN JONES: Biofuel bombers.

GLENN: Biofuel bombers. So this is an antiwar statement, okay?

VAN JONES: Fighting over lithium for the batteries instead of oil for the engines and we'll still have a dead planet. This movement is deeper than a solar panel, deeper than a solar panel.

GLENN: Okay, stop, stop, stop, stop. This movement is deeper than a solar panel. Now, you might say that, oh, well, you're reading too much in. You haven't read enough about this man. He is a communist. He wanted revolution. When he found the green movement, he realized, as did the people who wrote the stimulus package, financed by George Soros. The Apollo Alliance, financed by Tides, the Tides Foundation. This is as left as you can get. When they figured out that if we could just take environmental justice, combine it with those who wanted social justice, which is code language for Marxism, and combine those two with the muscle of labor unions, you'd have the unholy trinity. That's when he decided to go legit. That's when he decided to change his rhetoric. That's when he was taught: Change your tactics, change your language.

Do you happen to have, Pat, for me the audio of when the yellow man is yellow   or mellow? Do you remember that guy? This is the reverend that Barack Obama had at the inauguration. And again he's an old guy and this is old language, and this was the excuse, this is the way these people talk, it's from old days, this is the way, you know, these preachers were back then, blah, blah blah. You give him the benefit of the doubt. He was just given a medal of freedom award from the president just a couple of weeks ago. Remember this.

VOICE: We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to give back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right.

GLENN: Okay. The same kind of language by Jeremiah Wright. Same excuse. These are old guys; they are like your crazy uncle; this is just the way they talk, et cetera, et cetera. This is exactly the way that Van Jones used to talk, until he started to mellow out and realize if I go mainstream, I can get   what was the quote, Stu, that we had last night? I'm willing to give up my pose, my radical pose for radical ends.

So in other words, I'm willing to be   I'm willing to show my   do you have the exact quote? Give it to me.

STU: Yes, I do. Hold on one sec.

GLENN: This is exact quote from Van Jones.

STU: Okay, here we go: I'm willing to forego the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of the radical ends. And it rhymes, too.

GLENN: This is what is happening in the White House. Now, whether Barack Obama is part of it, that's for you to decide. He clearly knows about it. If he doesn't know these guys pass, if he doesn't know who Van Jones is, then this man should not be allowed near the nuclear weapons, nowhere near. He shouldn't be allowed to use the phone! It's called Google. This is the most out of control administration in the history of time, if he didn't know. There's no way he didn't know. So now the question is, well, what is Barack Obama's real agenda? How could he possibly put this guy in for green jobs? Because it's not about green and it's not about jobs. It's about social justice. The red man, well, that's just old. The red man can get ahead, man.

Here's what it sounds like in today's language by someone who is not engaging in youthful indiscretions. This is what it sounds like in March of this year, weeks before he is appointed a special advisor to the president of the United States. Old language: When the red man can get ahead, man. New language:

VAN JONES: And our Native American sisters and brothers who were pushed and bullied and mistreated and shoved into all the land we didn't want, where it was all hot and windy. Well, guess what, renewable energy. Guess what, solar industry. Guess what, wind industry. They now own and control 80% of the renewable energy resources. No more broken treaties. No more broken treaties. Give them the wealth. Give them the wealth. Give them the dignity. Give them the respect 

GLENN: Good God almighty.

VAN JONES: that they deserve.

GLENN: There is no difference between that and the time when a red man can get ahead, man.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
