GLENN: And, by the way, healthcare is of course going to be fixed by those in Washington and they're doing it because they know best. Well, actually, I don't want to say that they think that they know what you think. How was it that ‑‑ I think Joe Biden put it best yesterday in the Healthcare Summit, here's what he said.

BIDEN: I'm always reluctant, after being here 37 years, to tell the people what the American people think. I think it requires a little bit of humility to be able to know what the American people think. But ‑‑ and I don't. I can't swear I do. I know what I think. I think I know what they think. But I'm not sure what they think.

PAT: I'm sorry? What?

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Look. I've only been here for about ten minutes, and I don't want to say I know what Joe Biden was thinking. I mean, I think I know what he thinks. But I'm not sure what he thinks, I think. You know what I'm saying.

STU: I think.

PAT: I think so.

GLENN: But, it is, you know, you need a lot of humility and sometimes some stupidity before you really think about what he was thinking and then say what you think he thinks. Anyway, then we have the humility. Remember, Joe Biden, play the beginning of that where he talks about humility.

BIDEN: I'm always reluctant after being here 37 years to tell people what the American people think. I think it requires a little bit of humility.

GLENN: Good. I got it. It requires a little bit of humility. Luckily, I think he was sitting next to Mr. Humble Pie himself.

OBAMA: We've got a couple of other people who want to speak we've gone about 55 minutes on this section. We're running over because we went long on the opening statements; and, you're right, there was an imbalance on the opening statements because I'm the president and so I made ‑‑ (Laughter) I didn't count my time in terms of dividing it evenly. In this section ‑‑

GLENN: Hold on a second. Do you notice there was no smile on his face? He's not kidding.

PAT: No, he's just dead serious. What I love about that.

GLENN: That's what I love about the crowds when they watch Obama and they laugh. And he doesn't ‑‑ he's not joking. He's not joking. He's as serious as Chaves. He's just not joking. What was the other one where he said and they were buried in a T‑shirt. Do you have that piece of audio?

PAT: I think so.

GLENN: This happens all the time. The guy, when he talks about himself, when he talks about his position, when he talks about how important the things that he is doing, people laugh because it's so incredibly arrogant. He's not joking. Do you have it, Pat?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Here it is. Listen.

OBAMA: I got a letter, I got a note, today, from one of my staff. They forwarded it to me from...

GLENN: Called e‑mail.

OBAMA: From someone in St. Louis who had been part of our campaign. Very active. Who had passed away from breast cancer.

GLENN: He's not kidding here.

OBAMA: She didn't have insurance.

GLENN: No insurance.

OBAMA: She couldn't afford it. So she put off having the kind of exams that she needed. Fought all through the campaign she was fighting it, but finally she succumbed to it. And she insisted she's going to be buried in an Obama T‑shirt. (Laughter).

GLENN: He's not kidding.

OBAMA: But think about this...

GLENN: Stop. When you look at him he looks from one prompter to another straight faced he's not kidding.

STU: Not the least. It's a joke revisionism. He says something straight and they try to convert it into a joke after by laughing.

PAT: Because they know how uncomfortable it is. They know how arrogant it is and they're trying to provide him a little bit of cover. Let's cover that one because and it will sound like he was kidding.

GLENN: No, no, I think people genuinely think he's kidding. I think that people in the audience, you know, think he's kidding. They haven't woken up to who this guy is yet. This guy is wearing a mask like you can't believe. So now let's go back to the healthcare summit where he's not counting my time because I'm the president. Oh, okay. So you've got the president now coming out with the summit. And John McCain would just like to get a point in here. Mr. President, I'd just like to say something.

McCAIN: Both of us during the campaign promised change in Washington. In fact, eight times you said that negotiations on healthcare reform would be conducted with the C‑Span cameras. I'm glad more than a year later that they are here. Unfortunately, this product was not produced in that fashion, that the administration would oppose drug reimportation from Canada. A proposal that you supported in the United States Senate.

OBAMA: John, could I just say...

McCAIN: Could I just finish, please. And at Christmas day the geography does not dictate what kind of healthcare they would receive. I thank you, Mr. President.

OBAMA:  Let me just make this point, John, because we're not campaigning anymore. The election's over.

McCAIN: I'm reminded of that every day.

OBAMA: So the ‑‑

PAT: Again, McCain tries to laugh it off. Not kidding. Not kidding at all. He's serious.

GLENN: He's serious.

PAT: He is.

GLENN: You can tell by the way he's jumping. John. John. No, let me finish. I'm the President of the United States. The President of the United States should have some sort of humility. When you need to move forward, you move forward. With the rest of the world you move forward, this is where we're moving. But not when you are trying to take your elected officials and have a dialogue on what we're going to do next. You're not dealing with Ahmadinejad here. You're dealing with John McCain. For the love of Pete, he's in your camp. He's a progressive. And he just moves forward. The guy, he's at 44% approval rating now Rassmussen. When this guy comes into hard times, look out. If this press ever really attacks him, if they would spend a week attacking him like they attacked George W. Bush, a week, this guy would come undone. You would see in a press conference a mask come off this guy. He's not screwing around. He's not screwing around.

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.
