Glenn Beck: Pujols and LaRussa


- Pujols Family Foundation online

- Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation

GLENN: I got a letter from David Barton this morning at about 4:00 in the morning and it is let me just, let me just say this. I hope he doesn't mind. I'm going to read the part of the letter: There is no question this past weekend really got things stirred up. I'm taking a pounding. What else is new. Rabbi Lapin is also getting his brains beat in and several of the other guys have been singled out in the articles, but they are all hanging tough and pushing back, acting like the guys that the Black Robe Regiment would have acted.

That is I share this with you because so it doesn't sound like he's saying poor me. Because let me just read the next line: We're loving it. Our old Texas ad age says that if you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, the one that gets hit the hardest will yell the loudest. We got a lot of them yelling. But I want you to know that being yelped at by wild dogs gets old really fast, especially if you feel like you're alone. I want you to know there are a lot of people that stood on stage at 8/28. Some of them risked their lives. Some of them risked their fortunes. None of them will risk their sacred honor. None of them stood on that stage lightly. None of them. There isn't a soul that went on that stage that didn't have to really search themselves and say what is it that I believe. Even Albert Pujols, he was the guy who I said I think a lot of people will say, oh, my gosh, how did you get him. I asked Albert to do it after meeting him and doing some research on him and listening to Tony LaRussa.

PAT: Tony LaRussa.

GLENN: After listening, after listening to him talk about Albert he must hate that.

PAT: Yeah, I'm sure he does. I'm sure he does.

GLENN: He is such a nice guy, man.

PAT: He is.

GLENN: He is really a nice guy. But we

PAT: He's getting a little beating, too.

GLENN: Yeah, he's what are they saying about him?

PAT: I guess his foundation is being attacked, he's being attacked, the Cardinals are being attacked.

GLENN: What is the name of his foundation?

PAT: That's a good question.

GLENN: Find out what Tony's foundation is. None of these guys took it lightly. They all, they all looked at me and said, Glenn, you are really not going to it's not about politics, right? I said, nope, not at all. This is what it's about. It's about honor, it's about merit, it's about God, restoring the principles that we had. And they none of them, nobody said, sorry. Sarah Palin said, yes, as soon as I said it. I don't think anybody else with the exception of maybe a couple of people in the Black Robe Regiment that said yes right away. They all said, well, let me think about it. Sarah Palin said yes. I called her up, I don't even know if I finished the sentence: Look, I'm doing something in Washington, it's going to be called Restoring Honor and it's going to be happening, and I would really like if you would yes join me. And do it for free. Yes. People like Sarah Palin I think are used to getting hit in the head, but people like Sarah Palin or people like me, we have a side benefit. You know, we get kicked in the head, but we also are on the front of the stage and so we get praised. They don't. These guys are just getting kicked in the head. I would really appreciate it if you would seek these people out that have stood their ground. Rabbi Lapin in Seattle, can you see if you can find his address? Let's get his address and everybody's address, should we do that, his e mail box or something?

STU: I don't know.

GLENN: That may not be a good idea.

STU: That could be could go either way. But we can let's look into it.

GLENN: I just want you to know just, you know what? Here's a better idea. Just pray for them. Just pray for them. Look these people up. And if you can donate to any of their projects, if you believe in them. If you see something and you say, this is good, then please do.

STU: Yeah. Tony LaRussa's Animal Rescue Foundation is a big one and we'll put links to these in the newsletter today. And also the Pujols Family Foundation which is what he got the award for, but two charities.

GLENN: Albert, can I tell you something? He never wavered.

STU: Amazing.

PAT: And it leaked obviously that he was going to be one of the recipients of the award, and he started getting hammered immediately. And they were all over these guys, both Tony and Albert. And they still came. They came anyway.

GLENN: Everybody was freaking out. Somebody in Albert's camp called and said, now, you guys promised but all the press and we said, it's not it's not that. And we really didn't think that he would show. And when he showed up and he came in the tent the next morning, I just looked at him and I said, Albert, I can't thank you enough for standing. And he just looked at me, of course, why wouldn't I.

PAT: Good guy.

GLENN: Really, really a good guy.

PAT: And I am a born again St. Louis Cardinals fan now. Especially with the season the Astros are having.

GLENN: Weren't you

PAT: Done with the Astros. I'm a born again St. Louis Cardinals fan. And they have lost five in a row since the rally. So please support the St. Louis Cardinals this week. Pray for them.

GLENN: Pray for the St. Louis Cardinals and a win. I think God is I think that's up there. Don't you think?

PAT: I think so. I think it's important.

GLENN: It is, it's you know, what you are going to have to do is when I said to you that we have to mutually that we, what is it

PAT: Pledge our

GLENN: No. With firm reliance, with firm reliance on divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor. Part of the thing on the fortunes is we have to start sticking together. Never I don't believe in boycotts. I do believe in, what's a what would be the anti boycott? Using your purchasing power and having it make a difference. And I know you already do that. I know I don't even have to ask you. You know, if you hear a product on this show, don't you know, I don't even have to say this to you. Don't just buy it because we tell you to buy it. And you don't have to be told that. But if you are thinking about one of the products and they advertise on this show and you are like, oh, I was thinking about getting a please buy it from the store or from the people that are advertising on this. These people here, too, are taking great risks. This is the world has changed, and I know you know that. But there are going to be more and more people that stand up, and you did it on Saturday. And do you see the effects that you have when you stand with good, decent people? Do you know how and I didn't take a risk at all, but I think those on the left thought I was taking a risk. I mean, the guy at the NAACP, Jealous said that's such an appropriate name. Jealous said that he just didn't think that, you know, if I mentioned Martin Luther King, he thought that the audience would boo. Well, I knew I wasn't taking a risk. I know you better than that. But we had, you know, 500,000 people there on the mall. Something could have happened. But look what happened. Instead of something bad, something glorious happened. When you get like minded people together, the whole world will change. So as these people took a risk, some of them a life risk. And I believe they are still risking their lives. They are still risking their lives. Because there are those who, like the crazy guy, like the crazy guy yesterday at the Discovery Channel and I don't blame that on the left. I blame that on crazy. There are going to be those people who are going to say, I've got to stop this myself! You just stand with each other and stand with love and stand for peace. And the best story I heard was the people that surrounded the infiltrators at 8/28 and just surrounded them and didn't shout them down: We'll pray for you, we'll pray for you, we love you and we pray for you; we disagree with you but we pray for you, we love you.

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.
