Glenn Beck: Dems in Desperation


Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

GLENN: Did you see, by the way, that this show is under fire today because we're using a clip from Martin Luther King there, now is the time. As if the left owns Martin Luther King's ideas. As if Martin Luther King's idea of "I have a dream, now is the time to make that dream," don't see people for the color of their skin but the content of their character as if the left owns that idea.

PAT: Not only do they not own it, we don't even understand it.

GLENN: They don't even understand it. It is incredible to me how. It is incredible for somehow or another I am under fire for right before Martin Luther King Day Glenn Beck comes out and uses Martin Luther King's words. Oh, the humanity, unbelievable. This brings me to what I believe is coming our way. John is now among three prominent Democrats not planning to run again. Christopher Dodd is leaving. How many of these Democrats are jumping ship because they see that it's on fire? The strategy is, for the Democrats, to do a couple of things. One I explained last hour and that is get rid of the faces that everybody says that guy's part of the problem, at least in districts where, you know, they haven't gerrymandered the thing so much and especially in the House where they haven't like, for instance, Barney Frank will never, ever leave. If you look at how they gerrymandered his district, he doesn't have to worry about anything. It's almost saying you, you're in Barney Frank's district but your wife lives in the same house, she's not. It's almost like splitting the beds, you know, the kitchens and the bathrooms in half if the family disagrees on Barney Frank. And there's a lot of these people on both the left and the right that are like that. But where they can't control the districts like this, where you've got Chris Dodd as senator, you've got problems. And these people have to go away for the good of the party. They've been good and loyal servants, but they need another good and loyal servant, and the party needs to reinvent itself without reinventing itself. It needs an image change because Barack Obama has destroyed the Democratic Party.

Can you imagine if George Bush was coming into his first year, after his first year in office with numbers like this with Republicans just jumping ship, I mean long term iconic Republicans jumping ship. Can you imagine what the press would be saying about the damage done by this president and his policies? You don't hear that. You don't hear that the Democratic Party is being decimated. And it is. But don't worry. They have a two part plan. One, ask those people to step aside because as I lined out for you, laid up for you last hour, there's a poll that came out about a month ago that shows that Republican voters want to vote for somebody, and this is the same with independents, they want to vote for somebody who has their ideals and agrees with them ethically and morally and in their approach to life. Republican voters want to vote for somebody, and this is the same with independents. They want to vote for somebody who has their ideals and agrees with them ethically and morally and in the their approach to life. Even if it means they lose. Democrats are cut from a different cloth. They just want to win. That speaks volumes. So that's the strategy of the Democratic Party: Win. Chris Dodd, step down, let somebody else, to quote Mark Lloyd, somebody's got to ask themselves who can step down so somebody else can have a turn. Richard Blumenthal is that answer and they're hoping that you won't notice that the party hasn't changed. It's the same thing, just a different face. Well, a different face doesn't you know what? It is another example of the progressive movement. They gave you the choice between Barack Obama and John McCain. In many ways they're the same person. They're just going to take you there slower. You know, John McCain is just going to take you to the same destination just a lot slower. Barack Obama's hyperspeed. I'm tired of those choices, and that's what the Democrats are going to give you now. Well, no, no, no, we're giving you a fresh face. That Chris Dodd, he's gone now. All right.

Here's the second piece of this puzzle. And I want to get out in front of it now because to quote Martin Luther King, now is the time. Here's what's going to happen. I believe Rahm Emanuel has gotten together with Gutierrez? Is that from Illinois? Is that the

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Okay. He's the guy who's going to be writing the new immigration bill. The new immigration bill I believe is going to be just outrageous. I have no idea, but I would imagine that they're going to make it outrageous because this is the only thing they have left. They had global warming and we were Holocaust deniers. But global warming, I mean, have you checked the thermometer lately? Global warming nobody buys anymore. And the pushback on Al Gore, that thing is collapsing and it's collapsing fast. Do you notice in the last, in the last six months when Al Gore would speak, people would shout him down or they would push back? Reporters were even beginning to push back. That global warming thing is falling apart. So they can't shut down debate anymore and they're losing on that. You can't call, you can't call us Holocaust deniers anymore. Flat earthers. Because we're on to you. Healthcare? They called us all kinds of names for healthcare. But they haven't really used their most powerful card. But what they think is the most powerful card will be their undoing. But it is going to be a battle to the death, I believe. You just have to know which one is playing.

Here's what's going to happen. They're going to make the healthcare bill come out and they are going to redesign it. They are going to redesign this thing. I don't know how, but they're going to come out and they're going to make sure that it is absolutely insulting for people who believe in the rule of law but they are going to cloak it in just this mother and child sort of friendly wonderful, happy families just like you kind of nonsense. I'm sure those people are families just like me and you except my family came here legally. Here's what they're going to do. They are going to make this about race. And they have already smeared Fox and said Fox is not even a news organization, Glenn Beck is this and that. But they are going to make this into race. Anything that they can do to make it into race, to cry racist from the top of their lungs. Unfortunately they are going to fail at that because people, the game, the paradigm has changed and the only ones that don't understand it are them. And maybe we're too late to the game and they just, they know something that I don't know. Maybe they have already put the structure in place that is so strong that it doesn't matter to them anymore because they know how the game ends, with them in power in a transformed America. Maybe it does in their world end that way, but believe me that only makes things much, much worse for them because Americans are not Soviets. We won't live under that kind of rule. They don't understand that the paradigm is changed. They have pushed Americans to the wall. And Americans are good people. I personally want I agree with Bill Gates. I want it easier for companies and for people who are coming over here and they are the brightest minds. They are the strongest people in their home country. I want them coming here. Bill Gates begged George W. Bush, make it easier for people to get a certain kind of visa. I was with him on that. He was saying we're losing all of the best and brightest talent to other countries. I fought with him on that! We talked about it on this program! SEIU has, we have audio of SEIU where they are talking about their membership here in the United States is not just Mexicans who are from overseas but they're Europeans. They are Irish, they are English, they're Italians, they're Russians, they're Chinese. I mean, he's talking about all of them. Well, that doesn't there's no race there. What, I have a problem against people who are German? I come from German descent. Have a problem with Italians? My wife is Italian. It's not Mexico. It's not the color of your skin, to quote Martin Luther King. It's the content of your character. And I'm sorry, but you don't have the great content of character if you are intentionally breaking the law currently and you say, make special exceptions for me. This is going to turn into a race baiting contest. Because they need to energize their own base. Because the uber left has really kind of been lost. So what do they do to energize it? You've got to give them red meat and global warming ain't it now. What you do is you infuse millions of new voters by making them legal and at the same time you point the finger at your opposition and you cry "Racist!" Sometimes the racist charge needs to be looked at. Other times it's just a game. Watch for it. It's coming.

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.
