Glenn Beck: Progressives tolerant of all...except

GLENN: From the San Francisco gate Monday, July 6th, 2009, get ready for even foggier summers, says the headline. Bay Area just had its foggiest May in 50 years and thanks to global warming, it's about to get even foggier. Here's the latest. Headline: Fog over San Francisco thins by a third due to climate change.

PAT: Now wait.

GLENN: The side of the Golden Gate bridge towering over the fog will become increasingly rare as climate change warms San Francisco Bay, scientists have found.

PAT: I was so moved by the last report that it was going to be more fog because of global warming.

GLENN: There's less fog.

PAT: Less fog now because of global warming?

GLENN: Because of global warming. In the summer they said that global warming is going to cause more fog and that's because of global warming. Now there's less fog.

PAT: Because of?

GLENN: And that's because of global warming.

STU: It seems like they're presenting both things as negatives, too. Only the current amount of fog is the good amount of fog.

GLENN: Yes, that's it.

STU: More or less would be terrible.

GLENN: Would be awful.

STU: But the current amount is perfect.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I was in San Diego, what, about a week ago? No, fogs and cloud, no, not necessarily. I've been to San Francisco. Sure, it's cool to have to fog roll in but I think less fog would be good. I'm not willing to mandate the amount of fog, though. I'm just, whatever happens happens. I'm okay with it. It's called nature. The two faced illogic of the progressive movement is why it collapsed in 1920.

PAT: Man, you have to admire their pluckiness, though, you do. They just keep going. No matter what, they just keep going.

GLENN: I know they do, but what they did in 1920 was they went underground.

PAT: Sure, changed their name.

GLENN: The biggest spread in election history was Harding, was it not?

PAT: It was.

GLENN: I have the

PAT: 60 to 34% the popular vote.

GLENN: 60 to 34.

PAT: Biggest landslide in history, yeah.

GLENN: Why? Woodrow Wilson, everybody went, oh, I think this might be evil. The progressive movement was dead... except it went underground as just a Republican... and a Democrat. Progressive Democrat? No, no, no. Liberal Democrat. Liberal. And progressive Republican? No, no, no, just a Republican. I'm more of an open minded, middle ground Republican. Uh huh. That's how they changed it. But they just, they realized progress means, okay, so we're out in the open. They thought at the time they could get away with it and they couldn't. Now they come back out because they so destroyed the liberal moniker that now they have to destroy progressive a second time, and they will go back underground if we survive them this time. Because it is the progressive policies that have destroyed this nation. High taxes, lots of spending. You get it from both sides. You'll get the Democratic version is tax and spend. The Republican version of progressivism is spend. Why are we having this crisis? Because of our spending. There hasn't been any, there hasn't been any problem that you can't correct with high taxes, low taxes. High taxes, low taxes. It's the spending that has gotten us. Even Ronald Reagan couldn't cut the spending. Democrats went right down the road. And then under George W. Bush, spending with the Republicans, through the roof. It's the progressive death knell. They just keep nailing into the coffin. That's what's going to get us in the end is our deficit. It's what's getting all countries in the West, the deficit because we were just told no, it's fine. You know who we were told by? The Federal Reserve. It's weird. The progressives put the Federal Reserve in. Isn't that weird? Now you have the progressive movement so tolerant, so tolerant, they just want to tolerate everybody. They're just so tolerant and open and they don't know why people want to shut people down. All they want to do is talk: Don't call me un American. You remember the drill? Well, let me play this. This is, is it Rosie O'Donnell?

PAT: Uh huh, and Janeane Garofalo.

GLENN: I mean, this is matter and antimatter. I'm surprised they can coexist in the same room but here they are.

VOICE: It's a mindset that unfortunately, I don't know if it's nature or nurture

PAT: Talking about conservatives.

VOICE: I don't know if you are born that way or you are made that way or when it happens, when that switch is flipped on.

PAT: It's a disease.

VOICE: Maybe in adolescence, when something happens to you.

VOICE: Yeah.

VOICE: I don't know what makes one a Rush Limbaugh fan.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Got it? It's a disease. Isn't it Savage that says

PAT: Or a birth defect, one of the two.

GLENN: Yeah. Isn't it Savage that says he thinks it's liberalism is a mental disorder? No, it's not. It's not a mental disorder. It's Marxism. You have to learn this stuff. You have to learn it. You have to be taught. When it comes to now conservatism, remember this goes back to Walter Lippmann. Walter Lippmann, a guy who is revered, revered. Ask anybody who's ever gone to journalism school: What do you think of Walter Lippmann? Oh, he was, he was really? Was he? Have you read his books? Because, man, he had a lot to say about genetics and how we can just weed the stupid people out. How he can just genetically alter them, or there's got to be some way that we can just rid ourselves of the imbecilic voter. Uh huh.

So conservative, I don't know, maybe it's a birth defect. Maybe it's a disease. Something's wrong with you. I don't know if you're born that way. Well, if I'm born that way, then I can't help it. Shouldn't you celebrate my diversity if I was born that way?

PAT: Gosh, that would be inclusive of you.

GLENN: It sure would be.

Did Google create a SENTIENT artificial intelligence?

Did Google create a sentient artificial intelligence?

A software engineer on Google’s artificial intelligence development team, Blake Lemoine, is convinced that the company's A.I. is now sentient and able to hold conversations at the level of a 7 or 8-year-old child. Google has dismissed Lemoine's claims and suspended him, but as Glenn Beck noted on the radio program, this isn't the first time a company insider has warned of the possible existence, and potential threat, of artificial general intelligence.

Glenn shared the details of Lemoine's "very disturbing story" and broke down the pros (curing cancer and other deadly diseases) and cons (the complete inhalation of the human race) of the remarkable scientific advancements in artificial intelligence.

"Because of high tech, we're going to see miracles in our lives," Glenn said. "The tricky part is to not see horror shows in our lifetimes."

Here's why oil companies REALLY aren't producing more gas

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

The Biden administration has been accusing oil producers of refusing to expand operations to help offset skyrocketing gas prices. On Wednesday, President Joe Biden even wrote a letter to seven major U.S. oil refiners, essentially saying that the administration is prepared to use emergency orders to force companies into compliance if their "greed" just doesn't stop.

"Your companies need to work with my Administration to bring forward concrete, near-term solutions that address the crisis,” Biden wrote. The letter went on to accuse refineries of capitalizing on the war between Russia and Ukraine, gleaning record-high profits while Americans suffer record-high pain at the pump.

But no matter how he tries to convince you otherwise, President Joe Biden isn't trying to bring down gas prices. In fact, he's doing just the opposite, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Thursday.

"Why aren't the oil companies putting more oil out? Well, they're a couple of reasons. And none of those have to do with Joe Biden. None of them, even though it was Joe Biden that said, when he was running [for president] that he was going to put oil out of business."

Glenn first played a clip of then-candidate Biden saying, "No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period."

The next clip had White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shifting the blame for high gas prices from Russia's war with Ukraine to U.S. oil refineries.

"We want you to act. It's time to act," Jean-Pierre said, addressing U.S. oil companies. "We have done our part, with the strategic oil reserve. We are calling on them to do the right thing, to be patriots here. And to not use the war as an excuse or as a reason to not put -- to not put out a production, to not do the capacity that is needed there."

A third clip showed Biden’s climate envoy John Kerry saying in no uncertain terms that the U.S. “absolutely" does not need to drill for more oil and gas, during a talk with the USC Center for Public Diplomacy

The Biden administration has made it clear that insanely high gas prices are all part of the plan to eliminate fossil fuels. But the problem doesn't stop there. The ESG war against oil industries is being waged across the world.

Glenn read an op-ed from Vivek Ramaswamy that explains how BlackRock is manipulating corporations like Exxon to decrease oil production, while Americans continue to suffer majorly at the pump.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has been telling those naughty Americans who are struggling to afford fuel for their older, gas-guzzling vehicles to just go get a brand-new electric vehicle like the Ford Mustang Mach-E (listed at a market average of $47,553 in Consumer Reports.)

Here he is, all "charged up, ready to go" and, oh, so "excited to go pick up a friend" (Energy Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm) and share the "momentous" news about a new" national network of 500,000 electric vehicle chargers."

And who could forget the transportation secretary's helpful advice to people who can't afford record-high gas prices in March?

"Clean transportation can bring significant cost savings for the American people, as well," said Buttigieg. "Last month we announced a $5 billion investment to build out a nationwide electric vehicle charging network, so the people from rural to suburban to urban communities can all benefit from the gas savings of driving an EV."

Pete Buttigieg Says People Upset With Near-Record Gas Prices Should Buy An Electric

But now that Ford is recalling 48,924 Mustang Mach-E electric vehicles because of a defect in the vehicle’s "battery contactor," will Buttigieg have to go back to riding his bike — back and forth from his security detail's giant SUV that follows along behind him, which was definitely not ever a publicity stunt?

According to Consumer Reports, Ford is recalling the Mach-E because the vehicle’s battery contactor may overheat, causing the vehicle to lose power while driving. A Ford spokesperson said the company plans to send an over-the-air software update for current Mach-E owners in July.

Unlike out-of-touch Buttigieg, Washington Examiner national political reporter Salena Zito understands the current sentiments of the average American. She joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about sky-high gas prices, spreading crime, the never-ending border crisis, and all the other reasons Americans are fed up with the current administration.

While Democrats try to get us to focus on the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, most of us are struggling to afford the insane gas prices, which recently passed $5 on average across the country.

"There isn't a time that I don't pull up to a gas station where you don't hear someone cuss at the gas pump," Zito told Glenn. And that news, she predicted, could be "monstrous" for Democrats in the upcoming midterms.

In his episode “Famine & Blackouts: How Biden-Made Disasters Will Cripple America,” Glenn Beck exposed the new global-based rule changes that gave the World Health Organization expedited authority over our nation. He traced the changes to the SEC and revealed Bank of America’s fawning praise for climate-related market changes.

So, Glenn decided to dig further, and what he uncovered shocked him. Financial records, dark money groups, and groups tied to the U.N. and the World Economic Forum are all pushing for a total reorganization of our financial system. You never voted for globalist leadership outside our borders, but IT IS HAPPENING.

Glenn reveals the foreign actors who are REALLY running our country right now and the domestic TRAITORS who are helping to fund the implementation on Main Street, USA. There will be catastrophic consequences for this betrayal of America First ideas. If you think food, gas, and labor shortages are bad now, just wait until all of this goes through.
