Glenn Beck: Making the case...


Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

GLENN: Last night I unveiled this board, one that we had been I mean, you know, divine providence sometimes. We had been waiting on it for two weeks and we haven't got it right, haven't got it right, haven't got it right. Finally we did it last night and I think we got it right. And I showed you. At the top of the hour I'm going to play a package that we played last night. It was toward the top of the show and it was it's powerful. It is powerful. And it shows you exactly, in their own words, their own audio who these people are and what they're planning on doing. Divine providence. Today in the Washington Post. Yes, journalists deserve subsidies, too. Here it is. President Obama's self declared big newspaper junkie fears that he might be forced to go cold turkey. I'm convinced that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions with no serious fact checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context that all you'll end up with is getting people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding, he said last month to newspaper editors who asked about the crisis that threatens their industry and journalism in general.

PAT: Which is also fascinating when you think about the net neutrality thing where he's talking about protecting people's rights to blog and the open Internet and all of that.

GLENN: You don't want a lot of people shouting.

PAT: No.

GLENN: It's not only the demise of big name papers that should raise concern. The rapid decline of the newspaper industry is playing out quietly, with small, reasonably responsible dailies in cities and rural regions across the country disappearing without widespread notice. Dozens of daily and weekly newspapers have closed this year. Cities that once enjoyed the fruits of newspaper competition (Denver, Seattle) are starving. "Surviving" publications and many have filed for bankruptcy are cutting reporting staffs to the bone (this month, the New York Times said it would cut 100 more newsroom jobs). Maybe if you want to survive you come into the 21st century, New York Times. It doesn't seem to me that the Wall Street Journal is having problems. In fact, the Wall Street Journal I believe is the only one that actually increased. Maybe it has something to do with their reporting. Maybe it has something to do with their trust. Maybe it has something to do with they're online and they have invented a new model. This is like trying to save the horse and carriage industry. It doesn't work. Now, who wrote this editorial opinion? Robert McChesney. If you watched the show last night, you know who Robert McChesney is. Robert McChesney is a Marxist, a Marxist revolutionary who I told you last night has been meeting with the White House. This isn't wait until Monday. Wait, wait until Monday.

PAT: You'll hear a little bit more about his former organization, the Monthly Review, which is a socialist, Marxist magazine.

GLENN: Yep.

PAT: And he went from that to this new Free Press thing. What's fascinating, we should play this.

GLENN: Play it.

PAT: Today. The way okay, so now that you know who Robert McChesney is, he's a Marxist, the way

GLENN: This isn't like somebody who says, oh, he's a Marxist with school and I hung out with Marxists. This guy said

PAT: Big time.

GLENN: capitalism needs to be taken apart brick by brick. We'll have audio of him coming up in just a little while.

PAT: And armed with that information, his organization that he co founded is called Free Press.

GLENN: And they are the ones behind net neutrality.

PAT: Listen to the commercial from free press.

VOICE: Ever wonder why you get 500 channels but there's nothing good on TV? Or why your high speed Internet is so slow and so expensive? Or why you always hear the same music on the radio no matter where you go? We wondered, too, and then we decided to do something about it. We're PrePress and we're fighting for hard hitting journalism, diverse media ownership and fast, affordable Internet for everyone. Free Press is making sure the American people, not just lobbyists and big monopolies, have a say in what the future of media and communication looks like in vital areas like protecting the open Internet for free speech and innovation and delivering affordable Internet access to all Americans by bridging the digital divide and building a real national broadband plan. Free Press is helping to save the news and protect real journalism and strengthen and reinvent public media for the 21st century.

GLENN: Public media.

VOICE: And together with our 500,000 members across the country, we're leading a national movement for media reform.

VOICE: I want journalism that actually provides me information.

VOICE: I want internet that encourages innovation.

VOICE: I want journalism that is independent.

GLENN: Stop. I want to play the Van Jones audio that we played for you last hour. The Van Jones audio of what this is really all about. Remember Van Jones is also a Marxist communist. I got word last night that the reason why Van Jones was ushered out is because there's much, much, much more in the skeleton or the closet of Van Jones now.

PAT: Oh, I bet.

GLENN: Yeah. I know we knew more but I was told by somebody in the know last night, you don't know, Glenn, you don't know. This is Van Jones. Now, he is, he is no less a Marxist than Robert McChesney who was writing the editorial in the Washington Post, who is meeting with our president and who is behind net neutrality and the whole "Let's bail out the newspaper" thing, okay? Robert McChesney and Van Jones cut from exactly the same cloth. McChesney says capitalism needs to be taken apart brick by brick. Wait until you hear some audio coming up in about 20 minutes. And this is Van Jones. Listen to this.

VAN JONES: Once we are in that situation where people who we agree with more than we don't are governing, the role of progressive media could change. You cannot have an opposition movement without opposition media.

GLENN: You cannot have an opposition movement without opposition media. They need the media for the revolution that Mark Lloyd says is so important in Venezuela. This is what they're headed for. I have said to you before, and we laid the case out last night, these are revolutionaries. You must decide, America, and your friends must decide. There's no sidelines here. This is you're either on the side of the revolutionaries for Marxism and a new Venezuela here in America, or the revolutionaries of 1776.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

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."
