GLENN: So we're talking about how out of step congress is and Washington is with the American people. There are those who I think are absolutely taking us to a place of hell and then those who are just like, well, whatever. "Why read the bill? Why read?" They have been in so long, it doesn't matter anymore. They are either well intentioned and just clueless or they've just been, beaten down so corrupt and they are just, "Whatever, I just do whatever he says. Oh, no, wait, he is not paying today. He's paying today. I go wherever he says today. I get a kick out of these people who say don't just follow the money."

STU: Everyone's getting on Brad Sherman, though. I mean, it's possible that he just watched every minute of coverage from CBS, ABC, and NBC and the Washington Post and the New York Times and just never heard of the story.

PAT: That's true.

GLENN: You know what we should have done? Play the audio again, if you will, of Brad Sherman and listen to the crowd. This is somebody saying, hey, what about the Black Panthers and Holder and the DOJ not pursuing these kinds of cases? Here's what he says.

SHERMAN: As to the Black Panther Party, I'm simply not aware of that case.


GLENN: I've never heard — this is America. I've never heard anything like this before.

PAT: Well —

GLENN: We are living in historic days, historic days. How long have I been saying this? I've been telling you these days would be coming. They are here. Keep a diary. Keep a video camera by you. Your children and your grandchildren will ask you where you were during these days. What were you thinking? What do you remember from that? Believe me, they won't get it in the history books. They are going to have to get it from you.

Now, I can guarantee you while everybody was screaming, if somebody had kept their head and said, "Excuse me, wait a minute, hang on, everybody. Congressman, can you tell me anything about Mel Gibson and his racism?" I guarantee you he would have known.

STU: Yeah, he wouldn't have missed that story.

GLENN: No, he wouldn't have missed that story.

PAT: No question.

GLENN: Because they are still covering that today. Here's what — I was watching MSNBC and Fox side by side today in my office and I have all these TV monitors. Dom, show on the Insider Extreme the way the monitors are. I have all these monitors and there are three stacked up, and this is just like this in my office. And then there's another monitor over here at the top that has several different websites that I monitor all the time and so it just cycles through all these websites.

So today I was watching Fox and MSNBC. I look up and Fox is doing a story on the Black Panthers because there's new amazing audio from the Black Panthers. And what was MSNBC doing? A round panel about the NAACP claiming that the tea parties are racist and how racist the tea parties are. We are in two separate countries. We are Balkanizing ourselves.

STU: Notice the Fox News country is much more populated?

GLENN: Yes, I do. I do. And I don't mind being crowded with those people, either. But we're Balkanizing ourselves. We must not do it. We must not do it.

So I'm watching this and I'm thinking, okay, half the country knows, if you watch Fox, you know about the Panthers. But have they even covered that on, the Today Show? How many of our wives watch the Today Show and get their news from the Today Show? And they are still doing, "So and you're gonna make a sweater out of coat hangers?"

PAT: Here's the latest poll fashion line.

GLENN: I'm goo goo for ga ga.

STU: They are not a hard news show.

GLENN: I know that but at some point, have you noticed? I mean, did anybody see the show last night?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: I testified, I testified to the power of the atonement of Jesus Christ on television last night!

PAT: That's weird. That was the same thing that Chris Matthews was doing on MSNBC.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: That's ripping off his material.

PAT: Ripping him off again.

GLENN: No, that was Saul Alinsky, he testified to the atonement of Saul Alinsky.

PAT: That's right.

GLENN: Here's the thing. We are entering a different time. Times have changed. But some of these people are still acting like it hasn't. And there's two separate philosophies.

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.
