Glenn Beck: Senator Graham hearts Cap & Trade

Nancy Graham?

What happens when you morph Lindsey Graham and Nancy Pelosi? The results are not pretty...

GLENN: Let's see. I want to talk a little bit about Lindsey Graham. Lindsey Graham is on the phone with Rahm Emanuel several times a week, this according to the, what was the source we found this morning? Was it associated press that was saying that Lindsey Graham is visiting the White House, is the top Republican visiting Rahm Emanuel at the White House. Lindsey Graham. And he talks to Rahm Emanuel all the time. Well, that's good. I'm glad that they can help each other out. Seriously. But Lindsey Graham is there because he's just not going to carry the water for the Republicans anymore. He is going to carry the water for the American people and that's why he's working on global warming. Lindsey Graham, certainly not a progressive. No, no, no. He is just not going to carry the water for the Republican Party anymore. And as you all know, that water used to be a bucket of snow. But because of global warming which doesn't exist anymore apparently, it's now water and he's going to carry it for the American people. And if anybody tries to take that water from him, why, he'll fine them. And if they try to take it away in a big SUV, he will tax that SUV and all the carbon that's involved there. He said now that global warming, cap and trade I love this as we know it is over. Oh, as we know it. What exactly does that mean, Nancy Graham Lindsey Graham? Kind of a cross between somebody with common sense and Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Graham. What does that mean, cap and trade as we know it is over?

STU: I think I can answer this if you'd like to finish the rest of the quote.

GLENN: Go ahead.

STU: Cap and trade as we know it this is a quote from Lindsey, Nancy Graham. Quo: Cap and trade as we know it is dead, but the issue of cleaning up the air and energy independence should not die, and you will never have energy independence without pricing carbon. This is in the same article where

GLENN: That is so weird. Because I remember Enron saying the same thing.

STU: And this is in the same article in which he supposedly proposes a carbon tax.

GLENN: What's wrong with that? What's wrong with a carbon tax from a Republican? What's wrong with a giant, bloated system that you'll never get out from under that can control and wield its power to destroy and build up any way it pleases?

PAT: Nothing. There's nothing wrong with that.

GLENN: I mean, that's progress. We're progressing right to you know, we're marching, it's the march of progress really. We're progressing right into something just fantastic. I wonder if anybody like Nancy Graham would like to ask the question of themselves and then answer it. Progress means that you're moving toward something. You're moving away from something. I know what we're moving away from, the Constitution. Because that is what progressives designed the system to do: Move away from the old antiquated living, breathing document of the Constitution. The republic is an old antiquated, dusty idea.

So I know what we're moving away from, but what are we moving towards? Because at some point you arrive. At some point people have gotten so far out of control that you just have to finally just regulate everything because they just can't do it on their own.


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."

RESTORING HOPE: Join Glenn live from Standing Rock Ranch to restore the American covenant

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.
