Meet Joel Rogers

GLENN: Now, I want to play this audio for you and if you're a Twitter subscriber, I just tweeted some additional information for you and you'll be able to get that at GlennBeck.com. I appreciate the people who are the watchdogs who are putting this together. Have you noticed? Do a search, Stu, for Crime, Inc. and see how many people are tying it now to the Chicago Climate Exchange, et cetera, et cetera. People are doing their own homework and they are doing their own blogs and everything else. It's not that hard once you know what you are looking for, to find. And we're getting tips like you wouldn't believe. Somebody just sent us this audio that they had put together. This is Van Jones. Are you going to play both of them?

PAT: No, I just went with the Joel Rogers.

GLENN: Okay. So here's Joel Rogers. He's a guy that you've probably never heard of.

PAT: But I have Van Jones if you want that, too.

GLENN: Want the Van Jones, the second Van Jones. It was right after Joel spoke.

PAT: Okay, yeah, I don't have that.

GLENN: Okay. So here's, here's Joel Rogers. This is one of the main architects of just about everything that is going on in Washington, all of these organizations. Listen to what he's saying now about cap and trade and energy. Listen.

ROGERS: I sort of think of carbon at this point would invite you all to think of carbon not just as another commodity that's we'll be willing to let people bribe us to spend but think of it more like a neurological poison like mercury. And in the same way that you wouldn't say, "Okay, if you give us the money, we'll let you expend more mercury into the atmosphere." I wouldn't get too excited about the money aspect of the carbon. You can do everything in the U.S. to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and it won't make much of a dent actually. I hope you all realize that you could eliminate every power plant in America today and you can stop every car in America. Take out these higher powered generation sector, take out all of the transportation sector and you still wouldn't be anywhere near 80% below 1990 levels. You would be closer to 60%, around 68%. And that's bringing the economy to a complete halt basically.

GLENN: Okay. So there he is, a guy who's making a case for cap and trade. So why would we do this? Remember, you don't care about the environment. No, no, no. This has nothing to do with the environment. Nothing. This has everything to do with power and money.

PAT: He kind of complains that, too. In this little clip.

ROGERS: On the dimensions what attracts me about the opportunity is not just its size, which is difficult to overstate, but the fact that given its extent, it really extends our politics from just a redistributive politics into the organization of the economy itself. It really is concerned with production.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: Do you see this? Everything we've said

PAT: Right there.

GLENN: Now, will anyone in the mainstream media pick this up?

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: Van Jones, we played you audio of Van Jones last week where Van Jones, while he was still in the White House, said Joel Rogers is really the guy who has put all of this together. Now, Joel Rogers is a guy that we pointed out last week and we showed. I'm telling you, I said, what was it, two weeks ago? Crime, Inc. is the word I came up with. I said, let's call this Crime, Inc., because that's what our government is turning into. And this is bigger than Van Jones. This is if people understand the connections here, it will take all of it down.

I met with somebody this weekend who is how would you describe the political connections of, Stu, of this person that I met with? Not political connections but political... he's just seen it. He's been there from the beginning. I mean, he's I mean, I talked to him about things that happened, you know, with FDR and he was like, "I know. I was young and I remember it and I remember my family." I mean, he's been there. He's been there. And he's been there from forever. And not that I'm trying to be cryptic. I just don't have his permission to say that I met with him. But he asked to meet with me, and one of the reasons why he asked to meet with me was, A, he wanted to see if I really believed these things, "I want to look you in the eye." And so we spent what was supposed to be an hour, we spent three hours together and we discussed a little bit of everything. And what he said to me that was my big take away in a three hour period, if he said it once, he said it a thousand times. How's your security, seriously, how's your security? The reason why he said that is, you know who you're dealing with, right? And I said, yes, I do. He said, why are you doing it? And I told him. He said, I can't believe that you not only will put all this together and you'll not only say it but you'll name names. And I said, Mr. So and so I is there any other way? He said, no. He said, but you know how much money is at stake. And I said, yes, I do. Yes, I do. Then I asked him, do you not think our very country is at stake? Yes. Yes, I do. Well, then what choice does anybody have? You know, our founders didn't want to do the things they did. You know, nobody walks up to the Declaration of Independence and signs it and says, "This is going to be great. This is going to make me so much money. This is going to make me so famous." None of them. None of them. In the end it may have turned out that way but when you actually have to put your name down on the piece of paper, when you actually have to sign your name to it, you pause because you know what it means. We are entering a time period where each one of us will have to do that. Each one of us will play our own role. Each one of us. When I saw how many people are online investigating and sharing with friends Crime, Incorporated, once we've exposed the underbelly of it, nobody 60 Minutes should be doing this, but they won't. New York Times should be doing this, but they won't. Washington Post won't, but they won't. Because they are all in bed. You need to. Because it is critical. It is essential that you indicate your friends and neighbors because we have a choice to make and they will try to make an example out of anybody who stands up against them. Do not learn from the examples that they are going to try to make.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
