Glenn Beck: EPA indoctrination

This is a clip from GlennBeck.TV, a feature available exclusively to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. Learn more...

GLENN: We were just a minute ago reading the Constitution of and I just tweeted it if you're a Twitter subscriber. The Constitution of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA. You need to read this. In fact, let's ask Dan. Sarah, if you would ask Dan if he would include this in the free e mail newsletter today? Because it's stunning. I've got we've got it highlighted and distill it for you on how many things are in common.

PAT: And what's fascinating is a lot of what is said in there sounds like the EPA commercial that Lisa Jackson, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, just did.

GLENN: Well, that's weird because what the EPA is doing this week and we'll get to in a second is exactly what Van Jones, our green jobs czar, said to do, and he's a revolutionary communist.

PAT: But you know that's just coincidence.

GLENN: You're right, you're right.

PAT: There's nothing

GLENN: You are right.

PAT: Don't take one

GLENN: He's better at the Center For American Progress anyway. Which has nothing to do with the president or any of his

PAT: No.

GLENN: Anyway, so tell me about the EPA.

PAT: Well, they are putting out a commercial and a whole movement where they are trying to infiltrate our children and indoctrinate their minds in the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and indoctrinate five million children that attend those clubs all over the country and so this is a

GLENN: So it's like the EPA youth?

PAT: I guess you could say that. Yeah, yeah. And here's the commercial she did for this movement.

[youtube expand=1]

The EPA is building an environmental justice team.

LISA JACKSON: There are too many places in this country where pollution and environmental degradation fall disproportionately on low income and minority communities.

GLENN: Stop just a second. That is like Van Jones saying that

PAT: That's right.

GLENN: the white communities are poisoning the minority communities.

PAT: It's similar in nature.

GLENN: It is similar in nature.

PAT: I'm sure coincidentally it's similar.

GLENN: Yeah. But it's not as radical. What was it that Van Jones said? Oh, I have no problem dropping the radical pose for the radical ends. Okay, go ahead.

LISA JACKSON: People are falling ill with diseases like asthma and cancer. We can't stand by and accept those disparities.

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second.

PAT: We can't. We can't accept those disparities.

GLENN: Yeah, that there are healthy people and not?

PAT: That there are healthy people and not healthy. All people should be either ill or healthy, okay?

GLENN: They've got that one coming.

PAT: Where all people are going to be ill?

GLENN: The basic principles of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, this is from the Constitution of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, what did she say? That millions of people die?

PAT: Uh huh, uh huh.

GLENN: We live in a world this is from the Communist Party: We live in a world where millions die from easily preventible diseases.

PAT: Huh, that's what I was saying. It just sounds strangely, strangely familiar ring to it. Now, this is what you were just reading. There is what again? The

GLENN: The communist platform.

PAT: Communist platform, hmmm.

GLENN: An economic system which has devastated and spoiled nature itself and now has put the future of human life into question.

PAT: Well, maybe we should go back to the beginning and then listen to that in its context.

LISA JACKSON: There are too many places in this country where pollution and environmental degradation fall disproportionally on low income and minority communities.

PAT: Now, do they say anything in the Communist Manifesto there about

GLENN: I haven't read all of it. I mean, I do have the black and Latino youth phase, harassment, brutality and a constant threat of death.

PAT: Okay. Right?

GLENN: At the hands of police whenever they walk out the door.

PAT: Oh, okay. But not necessarily this.

GLENN: No. Well, that's no, no, no, that's, their potential is crushed and their lives are cut short.

PAT: Oh, boy. Oh, boy.

GLENN: Yeah, and I think that's well, I haven't looked at all of this. I have to

PAT: It's quite lengthy.

GLENN: No, it's quite lengthy. It's I like the party discipline part, too, but and communism is a science is also very good. But anyway, go ahead.

LISA JACKSON: People are falling ill with diseases like asthma and cancer. We can't stand by and accept those disparities.

PAT: No.

LISA JACKSON: As a start we're building our environmental justice team.

PAT: Environmental justice.

GLENN: Environmental hang on just a second. Environmental justice?

PAT: Environmental justice team.

GLENN: Hang on. Wait a minute. That's like economic justice, like social justice.

PAT: Like the league of justice.


PAT: Superman and Batman?

GLENN: No. Environmental justice and social justice and economic justice, those three?

PAT: They all go together?

GLENN: That's Marx. Those three, when done by the government.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That's Marx. That's in fact, it's weird because you know the Marxist Jim Wallis who is leading a campaign? You remember him. He's the one of the advisors on political policy.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: And spiritual adviser for the president of the United States. Now, some might point out, but strangely nobody has, that the adviser to the president on policy and also on religion leading a campaign trying to put a private individual out of business for disagreeing with the president might be an abuse of power. But again, nobody has pointed that out, which in and of itself is weird. But anyway, he is a guy who is a Marxist, and he's also for what was she calling it? Environmental justice?

PAT: Environmental justice, uh huh.

GLENN: All right, go ahead.

PAT: All right.

LISA JACKSON: And seeking environmental strategies. We're putting in place youth summits

GLENN: Youth summits.

LISA JACKSON: organizing workshops and other strategies to generate the inclusive and intergenerational

GLENN: Inclusive.

LISA JACKSON: leadership that the environmental movement and EPA needs.

GLENN: Oh, that's great.

LISA JACKSON: Environmental justice communities have tremendous experience confronting unfair burdens and shaping sustainable alternatives.

GLENN: Sustainable.

PAT: Sustainable.

LISA JACKSON: Your grassroots movement is an invaluable partner.

PAT: Grassroots.

LISA JACKSON: In the years ahead we'll be calling on your expertise and I look forward to working with all of you to improve the state of environmental justice in America.

PAT: Thank you, thank you.

GLENN: That is fantastic.

PAT: Wow, wow.

GLENN: So they've got our kids in youth groups. Now, again, haters might say that that's indoctrination... from the Marxist philosophy, indoctrination by the government of our children on environmental justice and injustice and inequality.

PAT: Those are only the people

GLENN: Who hate.

PAT: who hate and don't want to be inclusive of communists and Marxist doctrine.

GLENN: Well, it's more color than anything else.

PAT: You are right.

GLENN: Or poor people, or anybody that makes you different. You know, people who are just different.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: You know. They hate. And those are the people that would have a problem with that.

PAT: So anybody, for instance, like you, for instance, would hate anyone just different than you?

GLENN: No, I'm not a good example, but I'm used as that a lot.

PAT: Yeah, okay.

GLENN: Yeah. Because I don't, I don't even know this lady. I don't hate her.

PAT: You don't hate her?

GLENN: No, I don't hate the president, either.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: No, it's weird, isn't it?

PAT: That is weird.

GLENN: You've read something different?

PAT: I have.

GLENN: You have?

PAT: I've read quite a few things.

GLENN: Really, have you?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It's almost like an organized effort to smear.

PAT: I mean almost, but you wouldn't, there wouldn't ever be a president who was orchestrating something against a private citizen.

GLENN: No, it's not the president.

PAT: Or his advisors.


PAT: He wouldn't do any of that because

GLENN: It's not orchestrated. It's just look, it's just Van Jones and his organization. And Van Jones was an adviser to the president of the United States.

PAT: Yes, he was.

GLENN: And then yeah, but now he's over at

PAT: He's clear over at the Center For American Progress.

GLENN: With George Soros.

PAT: Totally unrelated.

GLENN: Right. So you have that, okay? And so he's leading a boycott.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: And then you have Jim Wallis who's a political and spiritual adviser, one of five, to the president of the United States.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay? And he's leading a boycott against me.

PAT: But I'm sure that Barack, the president knows nothing.


PAT: about it.

GLENN: And then SEIU where, what's it, Andy Stern, another Marxist.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: It's weird. We've got a communist and two Marxists so far.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: These guys are also leading a boycott against me.

PAT: What an amazing coincidence.

GLENN: Yeah, isn't it weird?

PAT: It's stunning. What are the odds of that happening?

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: All at the same time.

GLENN: I would look it up, but there's the odds haven't ever been calculated because it's never been done before.

PAT: Huh.

GLENN: Isn't that weird?

PAT: Wow. The planets must have really aligned for that all to come together.

GLENN: What a crazy, almost Chavez like move if it if it were

PAT: If it were orchestrated.

GLENN: Or if it were even known by our leader. We should print really big posters of him to hang on the sides of buildings. Oh, they are already doing that! Nevermind.

Last week, Glenn published his updated "Preparedness Quiz" to see how prepared his audience is for a big crisis—and the results are in! Thankfully, not very many of you are "Toast." In fact, most of you could survive a big disaster, and even some of you could survive a nuclear apocalypse—not very many could say that!

If you haven't taken the quiz already, you can take it HERE, and be sure to download Glenn's "Ultimate Preparedness Guide" filled with practical tips on how to keep you and your family safe for a future crisis.

1.7% of Glenn's audience is TOAST! Thankfully, that's very few of you. 

There is little chance you'd survive repairing your kitchen table, not to mention enduring a massive economic crisis or natural disaster. With no money, food, or supplies stocked up, you will have to rely on the altruism of your more-prepared friends and family. But then again, if you can't even navigate to their house without your phone, you may still be TOAST.

13.8% of Glenn's audience could survive a little disaster. 

Congrats on having some of your finances set aside for emergencies... and some useful tools and skills tucked away in case of an emergency. You could potentially endure a "little disaster" of financial hardship. However, if you want to survive a massive financial crisis or natural disaster, you're going to have to start stockpiling some more money and supplies.

68.9% of Glenn's audience could survive a big disaster. 

Congrats on being more prepared than most! You have some investment in precious metals, an emergency fund, some food and supplies stockpiled, and maybe an extra generator. Even though you may not be a "prepper," you have taken steps to prepare for hard times, which will protect you and your loved ones for weeks... even months—which is way better than nothing!

14.7% of Glenn's audience could survive a nuclear apocalypse. 

Congratulations on being one of the few people in this world who could actually survive a nuclear apocalypse! Seriously... there are very few of you. Your bunker is stocked with food, water, and supplies to last you MONTHS. Your silver, gold, and emergency fund will help you cruise in times of financial distress. You can secure more goods because you have learned a bunch of "barter" skills. Congrats on being able to keep yourself and your loved ones safe!

On Monday, Biden exercised his veto powers for the first time to strike down a bill that would ban states from taking ESG into consideration when investing state pension funds. In his veto message, Biden said:

Retirement plan fiduciaries should be able to consider any factor that maximizes financial returns for retirees across the country. That's not controversial — that's common sense.

At the risk of using the loaded word "gaslit," it continues to be the operative word in describing the policies coming out of the Biden White House. It is painfully obvious that ESG itself inhibits investors from "maximizing financial returns." That was never ESG's goal in the first place. Yet Biden said the opposite.

ESG aims to incentivize investors to make "socially conscious" (a.k.a woke) investments, even if they are at odds with the greatest return on investment. It has enabled state governments and investment firms to use their monopoly over the investment space to force companies to choose between adopting their woke ESG standards and losing critical investment. Isn't there a word for that? Extortion? Or modern-day politics?

ESG enables state governments to force companies to choose between adopting their woke ESG standards and losing critical investment.

That is the sole reason why Republicans brought the bill to his desk in the first place: As Glenn said, "ESG poses a clear and present danger to the American way of life, the soul of our nation and every sector of our economy. ESG was never about ROI. It was always about pushing a leftist agenda.

And Biden knows this.

Why would he want to give up something that enables his political party and corporate elites to control and manipulate the political affiliations of their people? Who would want to give up that power? Biden certainly doesn't.

And he didn't.

Instead, he boldly asserts the exact opposite: that ESG itself "maximizes financial returns," relying on the divided American people to debate the policy into oblivion, while he gets exactly what he wants: the retention of power over the American consumer. Dare I say again that "gaslit" is the operative word here?

If one thing is clear, it is that we cannot rely on the federal government to act in the best interests of the American people. However, in this critical moment, the state governments are stepping up to do what the federal government refuses to: protecting the rights of the American consumer.

In a joint resolution led by Florida Governor Ron Desantis, 19 states have pledged “to protect individuals from the ESG movement" at the state level. This is critical.

We cannot rely on the federal government to act in the best interests of the American people.

Florida leads Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming in signing the historic policy agreement among all 19 states, pledging to ban ESG practices within their jurisdictions.

The anti-ESG alliance calls ESG what it is:

A direct threat to the American economy, individual economic freedom, and our way of life, putting investment decisions in the hands of the woke mob to bypass the ballot box and inject political ideology into investment decisions, corporate governance, and the everyday economy.

This alliance takes aim at two specific practices used by left-leaning states to force companies to adopt ESG-approved practices.

First, the alliance promises to protect "taxpayers from ESG influences across state systems."

While other states are using YOUR taxpayer dollars to fund pro-ESG corporations, these states pledge to BAN this practice to ensure "that only financial factors are considered to maximize the return on investment."

The chief factor behind any investment should be determining whether that investment yields the maximum return on their investment. However, many states are using YOUR taxpayer-funded pension and retirement funds to invest in ESG-approved businesses. This not only forces businesses to consider adopting ESG standards in hopes of obtaining investment. Moreover, states are using YOUR taxpayer dollars to fund them! Would you want your government to invest your hard-earned money for partisan purposes?

The anti-ESG alliance is taking the politics out of investment and putting consumer power back in the hands of the American people. These state governments pledged to make investment decisions based solely on maximizing the return on investment, not in using your taxpayer dollars to fund their political agendas.

Second, the alliance promises to protect "citizens from ESG influences in the financial sector."

ESG standards force businesses to consider the political leanings of their customer base. For example, Discover announced they will begin tracking its customers' gun-related purchases. One of the leaders behind this push is Amalgamated Bank, which boasts on their website that their institution "supports sustainable organizations, progressive causes, and social justice." Amalgamated Bank CEO Priscilla Sims Brown said:

We all have to do our part to stop gun violence and it sometimes starts with illegal purchases of guns and ammunition The new code will allow us to fully comply with our duty to report suspicious activity and illegal gun sales to authorities without blocking or impeding legal gun sales.

This virtue signaling at the cost of your privacy is earning both Discover and Amalgamated ESG brownie points.

There are countless stories of Americans, like YOU, getting locked out of their bank accounts, dropped as clients, tracked and targeted, all because their personal political beliefs don't align with big corporations' ESG goals. Their individual privacy and dignity as a consumer aren't worth the risk of lowering the company's ESG score.

That's why the anti-ESG alliance is pledging to protect the residents in their states from this corrupt ESG exploitation. The alliance promised to ban "so-called social Credit Scores' in banking and lending practices aimed to prevent citizens from obtaining financial services like loans, lines of credit, and bank accounts."

They also promised to stop "financial institutions from discriminating against customers for their religious, political, or social beliefs, such as owning a firearm, securing the border, or increasing our energy independence."

In short, they have targeted the political extortion hidden behind the virtuous ESG veil to protect citizens from being discriminated against based on political affiliation.

It's time to step up.

Biden may have struck down the effort to restore the freedom of the American consumer at the federal level. However, these states are taking it upon themselves to do what they ought: to ban practices that threaten the freedoms and privacy of their citizens.

If your state did not joining the anti-ESG alliance, it's time to demand that they step up and do their job to protect you and the rest of your fellow citizens from corrupt ESG practices. As Glenn said, "The conservative movement is best when it moves in unison." We must act and unison and push our states to protect our economic freedom and our way of life.

How prepared are YOU to weather a future crisis? We recently published a brand new quiz so you can find out exactly how prepared you are. Whether you're a "prepper" with a bunker fit for the apocolypse or just want to feel more secure for the future, there is always something more to learn. That's why Glenn wants to give his newsletter subscribers his "Ultimate Preparation Guide," filled with practical tips for building a solid foundation to weather future crises. And let's face it—in our crazy world right now, who couldn't use a bit more peace of mind?

Editor's Note: Arizona House Bill HB2770 has since been shut down! AZ Rep. Rachel Jones tweeted that the AZ Freedom Caucus shut down the bill before it could reach the board. It is encouraging to see states stepping to protect the American people from getting one step closer to a Central Bank Digital Currency. Hopefully, Arizona will be a precedent for the other states!

On today's radio broadcast, Glenn warned about dangerous Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) language being smuggled into routine legislation in REPUBLICAN-led states. This is unacceptable, and as Glenn said, we can't let this legislation pass as it now stands.

The legislation being used to smuggle in this CBDC language is the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), a routine piece of legislation passed on the state level that helps standardize commercial and business transactions. However, a new round of UCCs being deliberated RIGHT NOW amongst a swath of Republican-led states anticipate the use of "electronic money." In a public letter sent to the Republican states currently deliberating this legislation, the Pro-Family Legislative Network said this can only refer to the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) under consideration and testing by the Federal Reserve. Biden's Executive Order 14067 issued in March of 2022 started the push for CBDC, and now these states, knowingly or unknowingly, are laying the legislative groundwork for making CBDC a reality.

There is absolutely no reason why Republican-led states should aid in laying the foundation for CBDC, yet 12 of them are deliberating it RIGHT NOW, with one UCC bill already on one GOP governor's desk! We have to act NOW to stop these UCCs in their tracks and demand our lawmakers amend the bills without the "electronic money" language.

If your state is listed below, contact your representative NOW to put an end to CBDC language.

1. North Dakota

North Dakota House Bill HB1082 passed BOTH chambers and is now sitting on Governor Burgum's desk. Burgun has 3 DAYS to veto this bill once it's placed on his desk—if not, it will pass automatically. If you are a North Dakota resident, it is absolutely CRUCIAL that you contact Governor Burgum's office NOW and demand that he veto this bill and re-introduce it without the "electronic money" language.

2. Arizona

Arizona House Bill HB2770 has been SHUT DOWN! See the above editor's note for more details.

Arizona House Bill HB2770 passed the House majority and minority caucuses. Arizona residents, contact your representative's office NOW so that they amend this bill without the "electronic money" language.

3. Arkansas

Arkansas House Bill HB1588 is in committee, and if passed, will head to the House floor. Though the bill is only in its beginning stages, it's important for Arkansas residents to stop this bill in its tracks and amend it without the "electronic money" language.

4. Missouri

Missouri House Bill HB1165 is also in its beginning stages in committee. That means it's important to contact your representative as soon as possible to amend it without the "electronic money" language.

5. Oklahoma

Oklahoma House Bill HB 2776 passed the House Committee and will go to a chamber vote soon. If passed, it will go to the Senate, then the governor's desk. If you are an Indiana resident, contact your representative's office NOW to amend the bill without the "electronic money" language.

6. Indiana

Indiana Senate Bill SB0486 passed the Senate and is headed to the House. Republicans control Indiana's executive office and BOTH chambers of the legislature. There is no excuse for this bill to pass. If you are an Indiana resident, it's vital you contact your representative NOW and demand they amend this bill without the "electronic money" language.

7. Kentucky

Kentucky Senate Bill SB64 passed the Senate and is now being deliberated in the House. If you live in Kentucky, contact your representative's office to amend the bill without the "electronic money" language.

8. Montana

Montana Senate Bill SB370 passed the Senate and was sent to the House on March 3rd. If you are a Montana resident, contact your representative's office NOW so that the bill doesn't without changing the "electronic money" language.

9. Nebraska

Nebraska's Legislative Bill LB94 passed committee and the first floor vote. As Nebraska only has one legislative chamber, this bill is dangerously close to passing the legislature and being sent to the governor's desk. If you are a Nebraska resident, contact your representative's office NOW and demand they amend the bill without the "electronic money" language.

10. New Hampshire

New Hampshire House Bill HB584 is currently in House committee deliberations and has not yet reached the House floor. If you are a New Hampshire resident, contact your representative's office NOW to amend the bill without the "electronic money" language.

11. Tennessee

Tennessee House Bill HB0640 didn't successfully pass the House. However, it was deferred to a Senate committee and has now taken the form of Senate Bill SB0479, which is now in committee. This bill is still alive, and it's important for you, Tennessee residents, to stop it before it reaches the floor! Contact your representative to amend the bill without the "electronic money" language.

12. Texas

Texas House Bill HB5011 was filed and is ready to be taken up by committee. Fellow Texans, let's not let this bill progress any further! Contact your representative and demand they amend the bill without the "electronic money" language.
