GLENN: We were talking before we went to break a minute ago about the passage of this healthcare bill. Nancy Pelosi is now all of a sudden for it. You know, she's like, you know, that Senate bill, that's pretty sexy, I'm thinking that's pretty good. Of course, it's the fastest way to a single payer healthcare plan. It just is. It will collapse. There's just no way around it. It can't be done. But they're not going to tell you that. This bill will pass before Christmas. I believe they will pass this. What day is Christmas? What day of the week is Christmas?

PAT: 25th.

STU: 25th.

GLENN: Thank you. Oh, is it on the 25th this year?

PAT: Two weeks from today. Two weeks from today.

STU: Yeah, 25th. And then the New Year's is the 1st.

PAT: Of

GLENN: I don't have that. I'm questioning then, I think everybody goes to, everybody will pretty much go to vacation, what, a week, a week from today? I mean, not everybody will, but a lot of people will just go

STU: A lot of people will take that Christmas week off, sure.

GLENN: It will happen a week, you know, the Saturday, a week from tomorrow up to Christmas. Find out when they leave. It's going to happen. I think they are going to pass this thing. While everybody is nestled all snug in their beds with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. It will lessen the blow, they will think, because we'll be gone for three weeks, two weeks. And it will just be, "That's old news, yes, we passed it. The president signed it. What? It was a Christmas Gift to the American people."

Here's what I want to ask you. Look at who's guiding us right now. You know, they came out, Creamer came out yesterday. We told you about Robert Creamer. He is a guy who wrote a progressive book that David Axelrod says is a blueprint for the progressive victories. They have used it did you see the show last night, Pat?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: I mean, I showed, in the monologue I showed exactly what they say and what they're doing. And it is Robert Creamer's plan.

PAT: I thought it was amazing.

GLENN: Amazing.

PAT: The Creamer plan that we just have to say everybody's for this. Everybody's you know, there's total, it's just like what they're doing on climate change. It's total consensus, everybody wants it, we've always wanted it. And then the montage.

GLENN: Of all the people saying that.

PAT: All the Democrats saying that.

GLENN: We played montages last night on the TV show. Do we have the audio? Can we get the audio to play them on the radio?

PAT: That's what I'm starting to look for now.

GLENN: We played these montages last night where, okay, this is Creamer said, "Oh, I don't have any power; they are not doing this." And I said, okay, here's what he says to do and here's what people are doing. And we showed them, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. And it is I mean, some of them are verbatim from the book, verbatim!

PAT: I think it was John Kerry that was exactly.

GLENN: Exactly word for word from the book. All right, the reason why I bring him up is because here's a convicted felon. The progressives are all excusing him because, well, he was just stealing money from the bank, you know, for a good cause. What? We have ACORN. I'm asking you for the character of the people. You have Van Jones. You have communications director that, she thinks of Mao most often. Look at the character of the people. John Holdren, our science czar. If there's a population explosion, I can help you reduce the population, through sterilants in drinking water and forced abortions. Now, he said, "Well, that was at a time when we thought the population explosion, that was in the Seventies and it was a time of the..." but he's never said that it was a crazy idea, never. He says the population thing didn't happen. Not that even if the population thing did happen, we shouldn't put sterilants in drinking water! Look at the character of these people, and I ask you and this is controversial, but why stop now? Do you believe that America has been the greatest gift to man? Over its period of 233 years, we have made colossal mistakes but is it a divine nation, a divine idea, a divine idea the Constitution, would you say that it has done more good than any other nation in the history of planet Earth? We've made mistakes. If you are a God fearing person and I am if you believe good and evil which I do this nation is not going to fade away. This nation is far too powerful. It is far too powerful of a tool in the hands of evil. I have news for you. I believe, because we are a powerful, powerful nation, we're not going to fade away. We're either going to get better and be good or we are going to be a force for great and powerful evil. A powerful tool is only destroyed if there's nothing else to do. But if the opposition side, the side of evil, can turn that and use that and distort that power and distort that source of leadership and use it for the dark side, I mean, I hate to get all Darth Vader on you but that's really who we are. We're either going to be a force for good or we're going to be a force for evil. Let's just hope in the end we turn out to be Luke who might have started losing his hand and everything else and had some decisions. But in the end he stood and said, I am not going to go there. Let's just hope we're that and not the Darth Vader character.

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."

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.
