Glenn Beck: Is the White House Following a Blueprint?




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

The goal of the Weather Underground was a “dictatorship” of a “new democracy” that develops into socialism.

OK, let's focus on what a dictatorship is: "An autocratic form of government in which the government is ruled by an individual, the dictator." Well, that could never happen in America, right? But you tell me: Are we heading in the direction of individual liberty or an all-powerful government controlled by few?

Take health care and financial reform — both massive bills that leave much of the decision-making in the hands of unelected bureaucrats who are selected by the president — namely Cass Sunstein.

The SEC just announced that they don't have to answer to the Freedom of Information requests. The FBI can look at your e-mails, without going to a judge first. And what about the move to get rid of the Electoral College in states like Massachusetts, Illinois, New Jersey, Hawaii, Maryland and Washington?

This is a power struggle, and which direction is the power currently heading? More power for you, the individual, or more power for Washington? You have to decide: Are all of the decisions by this administration merely a series of wild, unlucky mistakes or is it a power struggle? Is the president trying to stabilize or fundamentally transform America?

A lot of people will glance at the Weather Underground manifesto and say, Oh, Glenn! It's the 1960s. This has got nothing to do with today. Well, it's not like President Obama has the manifesto stapled to the wall behind his picture of Lincoln so he can look at it when no one is around and secretly plot to end the Vietnam War.

But, as we look through the manifesto, you can see the philosophy is the same. Insert the victims of today over the victims of yesteryear, clean up the outdated-radical-hippie language of the '60s and you pretty much have a position paper from this administration.

Back then, the victims were the Vietnamese, the students, the labor unions, the working class, the Third World and the oppressed. Well, today, it's no longer the Vietnamese. It's the Iraqis or the Palestinians or the Afghan people.

In other words, whatever side we're supposedly not on.

And while the left is still complaining about the oppression of unions and students, their new victim of police brutality and racism are illegal immigrants. This was their approach towards the Arizona law. They knew the law specifically prohibited targeting anyone because of their race, so they had to fall back on the idea that the police were so racist that they would violate the law to harass Hispanics.

Remember this gem from the president:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: If you are a Hispanic American in Arizona — your great-grandparents may have been there before Arizona was even a state. But now, suddenly, if you don't have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you're going to be harassed. That's something that could potentially happen.

This is not a new tactic. The police, presented as a racist entity of capitalism that brutalizes innocent people, have been central to this movement since the Weather Underground of the '60s: "The pigs are the capitalist state... pigs really are the issue and people will understand this, one way or another. They can have a liberal understanding that pigs are sweaty, working-class barbarians who overreact and commit 'police brutality.' Or they can understand pigs as the repressive imperialist State doing its job."

When you understand this philosophy, doesn't the “police acted stupidly” comment make a little more sense? See, it doesn't matter to them why you think the police are evil racists, it just matters that you do. The Weather Underground believed that the police had to be resisted at every turn and they followed closely a principle that might seem familiar to those who have watched this program over the past year.

They wrote: “Our beginnings should stress self-defense... moving toward (according to necessity) armed self-defense, all the time honoring and putting forth the principle that ‘political power comes out of the barrel of a gun.’"

Hmm, where have I heard that before? Here's manufacturing czar, Ron Bloom.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

RON BLOOM, WHITE HOUSE MANUFACTURING "CZAR": We know that the free market is nonsense. We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

America, do you know anyone who thinks like that? Anybody? Even if you did, would you hire them? Our president doesn't just know somebody who thinks like that, he's surrounded by them.

Now, if you think we're only talking about guys in suits blabbing on about political theory, remember, there are people dedicated to this cause who are still violent and active, such as the New Black Panther Party. Here they are in 2000:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MALIK SHABAZZ, FORMER CHAIRMAN OF NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY: A black dream today of self defense — of self defense — in the face of racism, in the face of police brutality, in the face of overwhelming odds against us, we today have a vision of a black dream today. A black dream that when we see caskets rolling in the black community, that when we see caskets rolling and funerals in the black community, that we will see caskets and funerals in the community of our enemy as well today.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The philosophy of these Black Panther radicals is the same as the radicals of the Weather Underground. They used race as a powerful weapon. We've talked to you at length about liberation theology on this program. Well, so did the Weather Underground: “The black liberation movement... is automatically in and of itself an inseparable part of the whole revolutionary struggle against U.S. imperialism and for international socialism.”

And from the founder of black liberation theology, James Cone:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JAMES CONE, FOUNDER, BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY: Well, if you're identifying with the victim, you not only want to feel good about that, you also have to pay back what you took. You just don't say, "Please forgive me now." The only way in which your repentance, your forgiveness can be — can be authentic, your reception of it can be authentic, your repentance can be authentic, is that you give back what you took. And white people took a lot from black people.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Liberation theology is less of a religion than an anti-capitalist political philosophy. The Weather Underground made it very clear that you cannot separate these two viewpoints. They criticized “so-called black capitalists who are promoted by the power structure to seem independent but are really agents of white monopoly capital.”

What does that mean? Do I need to say more than Clarence Thomas, Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell?

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."

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.
