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.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
