Glenn Beck: Greatest national security threat is carbon dioxide

Boxer: Greatest national security threat is carbon dioxide

GLENN: I've got to play Barbara Boxer because just when you think these people are completely out of touch, then you hear Barbara Boxer and then you are like, you know what?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They got it going on. Here's Barbara Boxer.

BOXER: A host of quotes from our national security experts who tell us that carbon pollution leading to climate change will be, over the next 20 years, the leading cause of conflict, putting our troops in harm's way and that's why we have so many returning veterans who want us to move forward and address this issue.

PAT: I love that because there's no facts there, there's no figures, there's no stats. She's just throwing out some baseless generalities, you know, that all the troops that are returning really want us to take care of this problem because they know more than terrorism, more than threats from other nations —

GLENN: Global warming.

PAT: It's carbon. Carbon is their main enemy that they fear.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. Can I tell you something? I can make a hasty generalization here that may be more plausible.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: That our troops come home from the desert. You tell me which one's more plausible. You make the choice. Which one's more plausible? Our troops come home and they have been fighting a war in, you know, in the Middle East, seemingly for no apparent reason, you know, to these guys in congress, and they come back and they say, "You know, why don't we maybe have our own energy supply so we don't have to go over to that nightmare part of the world anymore and be beholden to them and fight a war for oil."

PAT: No.

GLENN: You think so?

PAT: No.

GLENN: It's more likely to —

PAT: No.

GLENN: Let me give you the other scenario.

STU: She was very specific, though. She said —

PAT: She said they are all coming back.

STU: Well, she said so many of them.

PAT: So many of them are coming back.

STU: So she gave us a specific number.

GLENN: Here's the specific — here's the other choice.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: We just got back from Iraq and let me tell you something.

PAT: It's hot.

GLENN: It is hot and global warming is going to be the leading cause of conflict and that's why, please, pass this carbon exchange program.

PAT: That's exactly.

GLENN: Cap and trade, please, don't let another man die for anything other than the carbon exchange.

PAT: Carbon, carbon, yeah.

STU: Well, you guys know like when it's a hot summer afternoon how testy you get when you don't have air conditioning. You get testy with your family, you get into some fights. That's the conflict that's coming.

PAT: Yes.

STU: That conflict is coming to the world. That's why so many soldiers are coming back and saying that.

PAT: And when it is hot and humid outside, I always blame. I don't think that two million degree burning orb in the guy, that's just stupid.

STU: Those are flat earthers.

PAT: I think carbon, this damn carbon today is making things so hot! And so humid! I can barely stand it.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. May I just say this, may I just say this. I think we have our answer but I just ask this question. How many returning vets do you think approach after they come out of the Iraq or Afghanistan war and approach Barbara Boxer?

PAT: So many of them.

GLENN: For solutions to anything related to war or national security.

STU: So many. So many. You can't count them, there's so many.

PAT: She couldn't count them, there were so many.

GLENN: Really? She couldn't count them?

PAT: That's why she couldn't put an actual figure to it?

GLENN: So many.

PAT: So many, so many do that, you know. So —

GLENN: So many.

PAT: So many.

GLENN: Okay. Well, I think that says it all.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
