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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
