Glenn Beck - EPA: Air is Dangerous

Glenn: If you look at what happened yesterday, the stories that broke yesterday with the EPA, the EPA now saying that they're going to regulate CO2, Congress coming out, John Kerry -- do we have any of the statements, Pat?

Pat: Yeah. I have John Kerry's statement. He said -- we don't have the audio. It's just a release.

Glenn: Uh-huh.

Pat: This is a clear message -- in his voice, This is a clear message to "Copenhogen" of the Obama administration's commitment to address global climate change and a clear signal to Congress of the importance of passing comprehensive climate energy legislation.

Glenn: Let me translate. We're --

Pat: This is blackmail.

Glenn: Yes.

Pat: This President and this Congress are black mailing the American people.

Glenn: Here's -- here's -- here's how it works: They are -- they're telling us now that if Congress doesn't pass cap and trade, we'll just have cap. That's what they're saying.

Pat: Uh-huh.

Glenn: And it will destroy the economy. What's interesting to me is somehow or the other Congress, who is becoming more and more irrelevant every single day, they're trying to make you believe that they can't control the EPA. All they have to do is pass a law saying, no, the EPA's not doing that, period, and it's over. Instead, they set up this false premise that you have to pass cap and trade because what the EPA is going to do is worse because they're out of control. Excuse me? The EPA is out of control? Then maybe Congress should abolish the EPA. Maybe Congress should abolish the ability for the EPA to control the economy. It's just that easy, but they don't think anybody is going to see that. You have the FTC now, the FTC is going to just move ahead with regulation with neutrality because Congress just isn't moving fast enough. Your Congressmen, your senators are being spineless weasels and they are allowing these agencies to grow out of control. Who is in charge? I urge you. I said about a year ago you need to read a book. It's one of the worst books -- I mean, it's horrible. It's just -- this novel is just so -- oh, it's awful. I was going to say, imagine the worst person you could imagine writing a novel. They wrote it, but then a lot of people will go, well, you, Glenn. Imagine the worst novel you could imagine. Got it? It's this one. It was written in the 1900's, early 1900's. It's called Phillip Dru, Administrator. Why do you laugh?

Pat: I read Nancy Drew. Is that --

Glenn: No. It's D-r-u. They're different.

Pat: Oh.

Glenn: Phillip Dru, Administrator, the reason why I read that book -- this was a few years ago -- I was reading something on Woodrow Wilson and the book that I was reading quoted this or said that he was reading his favorite novel, Phillip Dru, blah blah blah, and Woodrow Wilson had read this book a couple of times during his administration and so I was curious. I usually -- when I read books, I will highlight or dog-ear pages where it quotes another book or something that influenced their thinking and so I track a person's thinking down by trying to read what they were reading at the time. So, since this is one of his favorite books and he read it a couple of times, I thought, I wonder what that was all about. So, I read it. It's awful, but it is the blueprint of what we're doing right now. Phillip Dru is just a war hero. He's just -- everybody loves him. He's just the greatest. He doesn't want to serve, but he will. Oh, gosh. I don't want to be the President, but I will, because it's the right thing for America. But Congress is so corrupt. If there was just some way to stop Congress from being so -- Hey, I know. I'll just -- I'll just put a bunch of departments in and I'll just go over everybody's head and I -- because everybody can trust me because I'm a war hero. Gosh. And I didn't want to serve, but I will, because I'm just like the average American Joe and then I'll just put in some administrators and -- because there won't be any corruption. They won't have any desire to be corrupt. Administrators? They'll be fine. And they will write to me, the President of the United States. And so what these administrators do is, well, they go and they look at all of the different things that are going wrong. In fact, he sends 50 of them out to go look at all of states and the state Constitutions and some of these things in the State Constitutions, they're just crazy. (Laugher.) They're just nuts. So, our administrators will go ahead and tell those states which laws they should have and which laws they shouldn't and just make those Constitutions, which are so old and written in such archaic language, that maybe we should just rewrite them just a little bit so everybody can understand them. And we're just going to thank a few things and we're also going to oversee all of the businesses and the financial sectors and everything else because they're just -- those people are just so corrupt, we need somebody pure, somebody that can restore hope, like Phillip Dru, who doesn't want to do these things. He just has to. Does any of that sound familiar?

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
