Glenn Beck: Hot List

There are things happening in this country and around the world that you need to know about, but I’m going to bet you haven’t heard a single one mentioned by the mainstream media.

• Did you know that 87 U.S. Senators and over 300 members of the House have signed letters to President Obama standing up for Israel, the blockade of Gaza, and the actions of Israeli commandos who landed on the ships that attempted to break the blockade a few weeks ago. Why isn’t this being reported?

• How about this one…did you know the House yesterday inserted a last-minute tweak into their version of the financial reform bill that could force private banking institutions to pay for and clean up the mess that is Fannie and Freddie? Oh, and by the way…that’s just another way of saying you’ll pay for and clean up the mess cause any costs to your bank will gladly be passed right on through to you.

• Oh and…speaking of the House and Fannie and Freddie…did you hear that when a couple of Republican Congressman tried to introduce amendments to the financial reform bill that would have forced the government to rework Fannie and Freddie and make them accountable for the mess they’ve helped create they were, according to the Wall Street Journal, repeatedly disallowed by House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, who at one point violently slammed down his gavel in frustration…no? didn’t hear that one?

• What about the provision added, almost completely unnoticed, to a “help small business bill” that passed the House last week that would allow all but the top 100 largest banks to pretend they haven’t made any of those bad subprime loans so they can go out and lend more money. This bill would allow almost 8,000 banks to spread out accounting of those bad debts for six to 10 years…just pretend they’re not there so it looks like they have more assets than they really do. By the way…this is exactly what happened during the 1980’s savings and loan collapse and again in during the Japanese bank collapse in the 1990’s and history tells us it did not turn out well. Amazing what happens when you pretend the boo-boo isn’t really there…it festers, becomes infected, and then kills you. Why are we doing this?

• And did you hear that new home sales dropped 33 percent in May, the month the government’s mortgage stimulus program went away? They were down 18 percent vs. last May…oh and commercial and private lending has taken a dive since January of this year….and showing that he’s no dummy, Fed head Ben Bernanke said yesterday that financial conditions have become “less supportive” of economic growth in the U.S. Nothing gets by you does it Ben?

• Meantime, the President’s buddy George Soros said yesterday that Germany’s plan to actually address its debt instead of continuing to spend like a drunken sailor was, and I quote “pushing its neighbors into deflation: threatening a long phase of stagnation…wait it gets better…and leading to nationalism, social unrest, and zenophobia, and, and, endangering democracy…yikes.

• Oh and Mr. President, not that this will matter to you but Americans are waking up. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll says 62% of adults feel the country is on the wrong track, the highest level since before the 2008 election. According to Democratic pollster Bill McInturff, the results show “a really ugly mood and an unhappy electorate.” Kind of like they were before you crammed Healthcare down our throats, for example.

A logical, rationale government would take all of this information and say, whoa, we’ve got to use some common sense and right this ship…it’s going to be hard and really painful but if we don’t change our path there will be no United States of America…at least not like the one we know now, but I fear that’s not what’s happening here. Listen to the rhetoric.. the subtle and not so subtle clues – something a lot of Americans wish they had done prior to the last election. We’re hearing the President and others start to talk about the threat of a double-dip recession…we’re hearing people like progressive economist Paul Krugman say FDR lost his nerve in 1936…he should have poured more stimulus money into the U.S. economy…Soros telling Germany if they don’t spend more they threaten democracy…democracy! In Europe. Gang, my fear, and I hope I’m wrong, is that we’re about to be introduced to a new phase of this economic crisis that will be presented as an emergency requiring our immediate attention in the form of another massive and maybe fatal government bailout that will lead to the ruination of our country. Keep your eyes and ears open…take the time to know what your Congressmen and women are doing under the cloak of secrecy…know history. For example: Krugman says FDR lost his nerve and needed to spend more during the Great Depression…let’s look at the actual words of FDR’s Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau near the end of their second term in office:

“We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it DOES NOT WORK…I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started…AND an enormous debt to boot.”

Do your homework…seek out the truth from as many different sources as you can. Find the perspective and context in history…don’t let the truth be revised, altered, obliterated to serve the purposes of those who want to “fundamentally transform” this into an America you and I won’t recognize.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

RESTORING HOPE: Join Glenn live from Standing Rock Ranch to restore the American covenant

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
