Glenn Beck: Snorefest 2010

GLENN: 888-727-BECK. The health care summit is going on and it is going to be fantastic. And it is finally live on C-SPAN. Now when we said we wanted the negotiations on C-SPAN, we weren't looking for, you know, the speeches. We were looking for the negotiation, whose coming in, who is negotiating, what is the union saying? Who is getting what? That's what we wanted on C-SPAN, transparency. What we are getting is a lecture. And I -- now seriously, I -- Stu, do I have to pay you time and a half to watch this today?

STU: Absolutely. I would actually put in for double time but if this lasts an hour.

GLENN: How bad are Republicans losing or holding their own.

STU: I think they are holding their own. It is exactly what you said. It is a bunch of speeches. The Republicans are coming after Obama. There is definitely that the bipartisan language is out there. They are talking about working together. It doesn't seem that there is much cross over.

PAT: Are they standing up for each other or calling him bluff or calling it a sham? Is there any of that.

STU: The word sham was not used, but they do have the sham WOW guy.

PAT: Okay.

STU: Sorry, all right

(Overlapping speakers)

VOICE: Dear Mr. President, why can't you shut Pat Gray up on the show.

VOICE: I'm only four years old and I have no arms and my eyelids were removed by a mean doctor who was just looking for more money.

GLENN: Go ahead, Stu.

STU: Thank you very much.

VOICE: Actually, I just need a haircut.

GLENN: All right.

PAT: All right.

STU: I don't trust you.

GLENN: I'm here.

STU: I'm missing very important speeches on the -- all right. Let me start going so you can interrupt again.

PAT: No.

GLENN: No. I want to hear it.

STU: A speech starts now.

PAT: America wants to hear it, please.

STU: So basically the Republicans are saying that .

PAT: I'm listening.

STU: The Republicans are saying that look, we can stop the -- denounce the reconciliation, step one. And step two, let's just start over. Don't give us your plan that we can add a double things to.

GLENN: May I interrupt here because Stu gave the best during the insider, this is the best analogy ever.

PAT: Give the analogy.

GLENN: I will give it. It is much better and claim it is mine.

PAT: That will just be longer. I'm not sure that makes it better.

GLENN: It is easy. You are going out for food. Somebody says.

PAT: See, already it is longer. Go ahead.

GLENN: You are going out for food. Somebody says, I want pancakes. The other says, I want roast chicken. Great. We are going to have a bipartisan understanding here. We are going to have pancakes, and I will throw some chicken in yours. That's not a compromise. That's not what America wants. That's not bipartisanship. That's Barack Obama bipartisanship. Look, kids, we are all going on vacation, and we are all going to go to a museum.

VOICE: But I don't want to go to a museum. I want to go to Disneyland.

GLENN: Great. We can watch the Mickey Mouse Club before we leave and then we are going to the museum. That's what Barack Obama is doing to the American people. He's giving you -- you can have a little chicken in your pancake. I don't know.

STU: The idea is to work together to come to a meal that you both like, not ruin both meals by putting chicken in.

PAT: I thought we were talking health care. Where did the food come in? Why do you always turn to food with us.

GLENN: Could you please play the Barack Obama sound where he's rejecting the cries of takeover and socialism.

VOICE: Arrived a juncture in our politics where reasonable efforts to update our regulations or make basic investments in our future are too often greeted with cries of government takeover offer and socialism.

PAT: Stop. Do you know why of the government takeovers and --

GLENN: Just a second. What takeover?

PAT: Chrysler.

GLENN: Besides that.

PAT: AIG.

GLENN: Besides that.

PAT: Several banks.

GLENN: Besides now trying to take over the health care system, name a government takeover, you cry baby. It doesn't help us get anywhere if you are saying he's Marxist just bass he has Marxist tendencies. Just because he wants to socialize the auto industry, the health care industry, the banking industry.

PAT: That doesn't mean anything.

CALLER: Doesn't mean he's taking over --

PAT: It just means he's looking for the right blend.

GLENN: Have some pancakes with your chicken. I'm a firm believer of roast chicken.

PAT: Do you know whose fault this is, the last chef? He left us with these ingredients, the last stinking chef is the last one who is to blame.

GLENN: I'm only serving you pancakes with chicken in it because I had to. I don't want to serve you with those, but let me tell you something. I'm a firm believer in having roast chicken today. Yes. It was my idea to have pancakes, and then take these leftover chicken pieces and put them in your pancakes but only because I had to. I believe that roast chicken is what we should have had.

PAT: It is Emerald's fault. He left this mess with these ingredients and in the kitchen, and you are just trying to clean it up.

GLENN: That's all I'm trying to do. All you are is the eater of no.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: I don't want chicken in pancakes. I don't like chicken pancakes.

PAT: So I'm a whiner, is that right? I should eat the chicken pancakes and shut my mouth?

STU: Somebody out there will make chicken pancakes tonight. Someone is trying it.

GLENN: This audience is to huge. There is somebody out there saying, chicken pancakes that sounds good.

PAT: I eat them every night. They are talking about making them. They are eating them now.

GLENN: They are eating them now. Why are you bashing chicken pancakes? Why can't we have -- we have the international house of pancakes. Why do you have to limit my pancake choices? Why are you saying that chicken pancakes are bad pancakes?

PAT: Stop providing us pancake eaters.

GLENN: Right now radio show hosts all over, Glenn Beck says he's for pancakes.

(laughter)

GLENN: Yeah, I think chicken pancakes are bad. Let's get off the chicken pancake bandwagon.

PAT: That's what it is like.

GLENN: It is. I'm sitting here defending myself from people who don't want to eat chicken pancakes either, and they are bashing me for why are you limiting our choices on chicken pancakes.

STU: But these are the same chefs that will tell you that they have been against chicken pancakes all along.

PAT: I was among the first to be against chicken pancakes.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Why are you eating them every day.

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.
