Glenn Beck: A bird? A plane? A black hole?

Mystery as spiral blue light display hovers above Norway

GLENN: By the way, Ryan, I know you are a meteorologist, so but you are a thinker here on the whole sky thing. Did you see the video from, where was this? Norway?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Did you see the video of what happened, what they say is a rocket in Norway?

CALLER: I actually did not see that.

GLENN: Stu, do we have it up on the website? Do you know?

STU: I do not know, but I will check.

GLENN: Okay. Does anybody have an answer for me today? Does anybody can anybody do more than nine hours and 45 minutes of work?

STU: My union contract says 8 hours, 15.

GLENN: Really?

STU: So no.

GLENN: Well, all right, good. Yeah, let's see if we can find it on the... (humming). It's a surprised cat at

STU: Ooh, a surprise cat?

GLENN: That looks really good. I tell you what, Ryan, you check back with us at here in about an hour or so. We're going to try to get this, we're going to try to get this video for you of what happened in the skies over Norway. I'm sorry, but I want to know where Jodie Foster was. Did anybody see oh, what's the movie?

PAT: Contact?

GLENN: Contact. I think, I think they have opened a wormhole. It would explain an awful lot, wouldn't it? You would be like, "Oh! Oh, we've just been in a parallel universe. Oh, now it makes sense." Wouldn't you feel better if you found out?

PAT: I would.

GLENN: That we slipped through a wormhole because they started Zurn, you know, they started the supercollider and you'd be like, oh, it's just a wormhole thing; okay. No chance of you getting back to the, you know, original America and the original world you were in. "Oh, that sucks." But at least I understand what's going on now!

I saw this, and they are saying that there was a Russian missile gone awry.

PAT: Get out of here.

GLENN: I've never seen anything like it.

PAT: It's a spiral if you haven't seen it yet, it's a spiraling light and then there's a blue spiral light that comes out of this white light. And then it all seems to like in the center of the white light it looks like, well, it looks like a wormhole opens or a black hole forms.

STU: And?

PAT: Or something.

STU: And?

PAT: And?

STU: I mean, you guys are such you're so paranoid.

GLENN: And then Smurfs pop out. And then Smurfs pop out.

STU: You think it's an avatar promo?

GLENN: It could be. It could be Gargamel. It does have a blue light going up to it. Now, I haven't heard anything that sounds reasonable including the Russian missile thing. Maybe it is.

PAT: I think it's the Tesla weather machine. They're shooting the Tesla weather machine and changing the weather patterns for the world. That's what they're doing.

GLENN: Were you surprised at the guy from SuperFreakonomics? I said, have you heard the theory that they are changing the weather?

PAT: He's like, oh, yeah, of course they are doing that.

STU: I mean, he wouldn't

GLENN: I mean, he is not a

STU: No, no, I would

GLENN: You know what? Can we get him on the phone? He would know about this Russian missile thing. He would at least know where we could start. Let's get the SuperFreakonomics guy on.

STU: Stephen Dubner? Why would he because he wrote a book about economics, I don't

GLENN: No, no, we talked about, we were in the green room, we were talking science. We were talking science, we were talking physics.

STU: What would that I don't understand why he would be the one.

GLENN: Because we were talking about DARPA in the green room and we were talking about scientists, and he hangs with scientists and he was talking to me about, I don't remember, some group of scientists that he's hanging out with. He would at least know who we could call, I bet. Don't you think?

STU: I don't know about we could ask him.

GLENN: Call him.

STU: Well, yeah, let's ask him. I like it. I thought it was

GLENN: He's standing there and he's like, let's do that.

PAT: Yeah, let's

GLENN: That would be your job to do that.

STU: Hold on. Let me I mean, let me just call over and see what's going on.

PAT: Good idea.

STU: I'll do that now.

GLENN: Go ahead and do that now.

STU: Yeah, I'll definitely call. I want to get on that and make sure I take that call.

GLENN: I can't take it anymore. It's the wormhole. They opened up a wormhole.

STU: Do you not want me to call? You were saying something about the wormhole. I want to make sure I hear it if it's important. I'll just wait.

GLENN: Turn your microphone off and call him.

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."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

RESTORING HOPE: Join Glenn live from Standing Rock Ranch to restore the American covenant

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
