Glenn Beck: Obama's oil spill solution - stop drilling

GLENN: The grieving families of the oil workers that died in the explosion are all going to testify now on Capitol Hill and that's good. I hope you can drive a stake through the heart of —

PAT: All drilling.

GLENN: All drilling.

PAT: I say don't drill offshore, don't drill onshore, don't drill. Don't drill at all because drilling could lead to something bad happening and —

GLENN: Well, we know that it already has. Global warming.

PAT: Thank you.

GLENN: We know that it already has. It's already hurt the migration of... an animal or — it's caused problems up in Alaska, the pipeline.

PAT: It has. You know what, the moose up there because of the pipeline can't mate or something because the pipeline —

GLENN: Let's not get into it.

PAT: Ruins the mood.

GLENN: You don't need all the details. Look, there's so much information out there that it's confusing. So we don't want to put a lot of information out there that's confusing.

PAT: Let's say no more drilling.

GLENN: No more drilling.

PAT: And just leave it at that, no more drilling.

GLENN: And I think that's where the president is headed, no more drilling.

PAT: No more drilling. Here's what he said.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We're going to be ordering the following actions.

PAT: Okay.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: First we will suspend the planned exploration of two locations off the coast of Alaska.

PAT: Don't even explore.

GLENN: Yeah. Not even going to explore. We're not going to drill, we're not even going to explore.

PAT: We're not even going to look for oil anymore.

GLENN: Right.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We will cancel the pending sale of the Gulf of Mexico and the proposed lease sale off the coast of Virginia.

PAT: Good move.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Third, we will continue the existing moratorium and suspend the issuance of new permits to drill new deep water wells for six months.

GLENN: Lord — hang on just a second. Am I the only one thinking right now, "Lord, take away this feeling in my heart."

PAT: Yes, yes.

GLENN: Lord, help me love.

PAT: Oh, I —

GLENN: Help me love.

PAT: — offer that prayer every day when I'm putting audio into this little machine. Just help me put this audio in the machine without searing hatred! Just please help me without searing white hot hatred! Please help me get it into the machine.

GLENN: Help me, Lord. Just help me.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We will suspend action on 33 deep water exploratory wells currently being drilled in the Gulf of Mexico. Last Friday I also signed an executive order establishing the National Commission on the BP Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling. While there are a number of ongoing investigations including an independent review by the National Academy of Engineering, the purpose of this commission is to consider both the root causes of the disaster and also actions on —

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Here's the root cause of it. Root cause is oil is under the ground.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And then you are putting a pipe about a mile beneath the water.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Into the ground.

PAT: Yeah. And we do it every day.

GLENN: And we're pumping it out.

PAT: But sometimes something went wrong.

GLENN: Sometimes things happen.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And they go wrong. And when that happens, that's like, let's say there's a house fire and we have to suspend building all houses until we figure out what happened here. Sometimes houses catch fire. Sometimes bad guys bad guys set houses on fire. We don't stop building all houses.

PAT: It's not even like somebody set it on fire. It's more like, you know, like it's a natural gas house, you know. You get natural gas heat and something happened and your house blows up because of the natural gas. That's like banning all natural gas heated homes all over America.

GLENN: And let's just say this is not new technology. This is something we've been doing for a hundred years. I mean, we've been drilling for oil. Where do you think we got Rockefeller Center? Rockefeller. Standard Oil. We've been doing this for 100 years. This is not a new thing. This isn't like, well, now, wait a minute, hang on. Are you saying those fluorescent light bulbs, if I break them, I have to call the EPA to clean them up? You see, it's not a new thing like that.

PAT: But here's the good thing. They are not going to waste this great crisis.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: More than anything else, this economic and environmental tragedy — and it's a tragedy.

GLENN: It is.

PAT: It is.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Underscores the urgent need for this nation to develop clean renewable sources of energy.

GLENN: Oh, thank goodness we can use it.

PAT: And?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: If nothing else, this disaster should serve as a wake up call.

PAT: To pass the bill.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That it's time to move forward on this legislation.

PAT: Finally let's get to the climate change cap and trade bill.

GLENN: So wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. His little organization of ShoreBank that no one will do an investigation on, ShoreBank and CCX which no one will do an investigation on and his connections to it all, if we can just get money funneled to those guys through the unions, somehow or another our country will be saved?

PAT: Uh, yeah.

GLENN: Okay, good.

PAT: I think so.

GLENN: Glad I understand it. Glad the world is starting to make sense.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
