Glenn Beck: More sulfur -- Obamacare funds abortions

GLENN: Okay. Now, I want to play a couple of pieces of audio for you because it is amazing to me. Yesterday I told you on television, I played the audio of Barack Obama actually having the unmitigated gall to get pastors on a conference call, religious leaders who were concerned about that the federal government was going to start funding abortions. Now, I don't know what their excuse is going to be. It's going to be probably something along the lines of, no, the HHS, they are giving the states money and then the states are funding the abortions. It's money laundering. HHS is now starting the healthcare and it is abortion on demand. In two states, New Mexico and Pennsylvania, they are already — I think it starts in August, like August 1st, abortions on demand. Barack Obama, when Stupak was in this whole thing, he tried to get people on the phone. People who were concerned about abortion saying we don't want to pay for abortions. And he said, that's ridiculous. But he went a step further. He said this on the conference call.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: There are some folks out there who are frankly bearing false witness, but I want everyone to know what health insurance reform is all about. You've heard that this is all going to mean government funding of abortion. Not true. This is all — these are all fabrications that have been put out there in order to discourage people from meeting what I consider to be a core ethical and moral obligation.

GLENN: Stop. There he is. It's a core ethical obligation. This is not going to happen. In fact, these people — and referring to people like you and me — are bearing false witness. That's one of the big ten: Thou shall not bear false witness. One of the big ten. He is bearing false witness about people bearing false witness to pastors, about the killing of the innocent unborn. That's about as evil as you can get. That doesn't seem to, nobody wants to print that in the paper.

PAT: In fact, it was an entire half hour on it yesterday, last night on the TV show, and what do they come back with today?

GLENN: Well, here's —

PAT: One website was talking about, what was it they brought up?

GLENN: My contract.

PAT: Oh, my gosh!

GLENN: I was doing a deal on —

PAT: About taking a man at his word.

GLENN: At his word. I want to do deals with a handshake. I do deals with a handshake. Now, that doesn't mean I don't have paperwork. I mean, you think — you really think giant corporations are going to get into a deal without paperwork? Of course not. I'm perfectly willing to work without a contract. I honor my word. There have been things — Joe, what was it with he just did like six months ago that, like, really hurt me? Remember? There was something that we had a deal with and it cost me? It was something that cost me, like, six figures. Because I had, I had given my word to somebody that I was going to do it I don't remember what it was. But I mean, and it wasn't even — remember? We had this conversation? I don't remember what it was, but we had the conversation and you knew the answer, but you had to ask. You had called, somebody had called and they said, you know, you've got to blah, blah blah. And you said, I'll talk to Glenn about it, but I know he's given his word on this and he's not going to do it. I had no paperwork.

Okay, you remember what it is? Yeah. So I mean, I don't need paperwork. My word is my bond. Why is it that way? Because I lost trust once in my life. When I was drinking — and Pat knows because he was there. Pat, could anybody really trust me?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Okay. Thank you for that. Thank you. I mean, you could have thought about it a little bit, well, Glenn, I don't I lost my word because nobody could trust me because I was living a lie. I was an alcoholic. Okay, you don't need to ponder it like this.

PAT: No, I don't want to bear false witness. So I'm trying to be true here.

GLENN: The one thing I promised myself is if you give me a second chance, Lord, I won't do that again. I promise you, I will not lie. I won't cheat, I won't steal, I won't do it. He's given me a second chance. I'm not going to violate that. So I was using this example yesterday about going to Fox and, you know, looking at Roger Ailes and saying, I look a man in the eye and shake his hand, I want to know, that's the way we do it. He said, fine. You don't need a contract with me. I shook hands and I said, you'll never need one with me. Now, do the attorneys need them? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. I don't need it. I don't need it. I don't care what it even says in paper. I've got a handshake and a man looked me in the eye. That's the way it should be. And I use this as an example of, here's the president of the United States, the most powerful man in the world.

You know why we have a problem with our stock market and our business? Because nobody can trust each other. Not only did he look people in the eye, he went the extra mile. He called religious people and said, anybody who says that we're going to federally fund abortions, they are bearing false witness. Then they do it, but he goes the extra step. He puts it in writing in an executive order. So not only, the contract's not worth anything, the paper's not worth anything, the word's not worth anything, and he lies at the time to other people about other people who are standing against him. It is about as evil as you can get. And what did the reporters do? "Glenn Beck says he doesn't have a contract at Fox." That's the story.

PAT: That's the story.

GLENN: That's the story.

PAT: That's amazing.

GLENN: The other thing we talked about this week was the fact that not only social justice. Social justice means redistribution of wealth. That's what it means. The way Jim Wallis and all of these people on the left mean social justice, they mean redistribution of wealth. Who's going to be on with us in a half hour? Who did you get a hold of? Did you get a hold of Dobson or — Robinson? We'll have James Robison on. He is huge evangelical pastor. He will tell you about social justice. He will tell you about what they mean when they say social justice. So I talk not only social justice but I talk about collective salvation this week. Now, collective salvation is a Marxist idea. Because Marxism is Godless. Do you remember the Soviet Union? It's godless. So what is collective salvation? That Jesus died, sure. But he didn't give you your salvation. Your salvation comes from, if you're an oppressor, if you're a white person, Jeremiah Wright, listen to any of his talks, if you're a white person, you must, to be saved, give up all of your stuff. Now, if the oppressed can rise up and take the stuff from the rich white oppressor, they can provide collective salvation. It puts people in the role of the Messiah and that their salvation is linked to everyone's salvation. So in other words, if they have power, they're going to have to do things that will lead to everyone's salvation. It's imperative because their salvation is dependent on it because we all go together. It's human, serving now the party of human, party of human. That's not the way it happens at the pearly gates. It's an individual thing. I explain this on television. So in other words Jesus dies on the cross because he's a victim. First of all, he chose. But collective salvation teaches that Jesus was a victim. And then the tomb is irrelevant because he rises from the dead, but he didn't do anything. He's not conquering anything. He's still a victim. And we all have to do what we have to do to be able to survive. Okay? To be able to have salvation. We have to force people into it. I said, that's like Jesus dying on the cross. And then what? He comes back, what? I've got to get them Jews. What does the media report? Glenn Beck says Jesus has to come back and get them Jews. No. I'm saying in a perverted world, in a perverted gospel. "Glenn Beck says that Jews killed Jesus. Romans killed Jesus."

PAT: Well, I mean, technically the Romans, yes.

GLENN: Yes, they did.

PAT: Carried out the will of the Sanhedrin. The Jews wanted him executed.

GLENN: Now, does that make me all of a sudden anti Jewish?

PAT: No.

GLENN: That's what they're going to say.

PAT: That's ridiculous.

GLENN: There is no one more pro Israel and more pro Jew than I am. I can't take it anymore. The lies and the bearing of false witness.

Here's the truth, and you are not going to get it from me. You are going to get it, the words of Barack Obama and Jim Wallis and Van Jones, I'm going to play audio for you today that should shake you to your core. This is the reason why they are doing these things. We've been talking about Cloward and Piven and next week I'm going to show you the plan. We found their manifesto and I swear to you, I swear to you this is it. You'll understand it all. But above that is this perversion of religion, this perversion of the gospel of Jesus Christ. That's what it is.

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.
