GLENN: I have to tell you, I read one of the best headlines I have read in I don't know how long. This made me so very, very happy. Let me pull it up. It was on the front page of the Drudge Report today. There it is. Right under Tea Party favorites score in Delaware, New York, and New Hampshire. The headline, Establishment Freaks. Hmmm. I'm so happy. Aren't you feeling good? Tea Party, let me tell you something. You have won now. You have won the day. You have done the absolute impossible. You have done something that everyone said could not be done. You have taken the establishment against all odds, people who are just bakers and plumbers, teachers, business leaders, just average moms and dads and kids, and you have built something here to where a year and a half ago, I had to convince you that you had the power. I had to convince you that you are not alone. And Rick Santelli just had to say, there needs to be some sort of a Tea Party! And look what you've done. In Delaware a guy who has been in congress for four decades and had everything going for him, done. This I believe is the seventh or eighth massive upset with the Tea Party.

Now, everyone today in the media is going to say, well, the Republicans are in Civil War, and the Republicans. And in a way it's true, except it's not brother against brother. Here's what it is. It's establishment versus the people. It is the elites versus the people. That's the Civil War here. Are you going to be controlled and dominated or are we a country that is based on the people, of the people, and for the people? Which are we? Are we in control or are we just given the illusion of control? Today at least in the primaries, the people are in control. It doesn't matter what the establishment tells us anymore. We're not believing it. And here's the even better news: It's independents, too. Once you can get the Democrats to understand that they have been lied to as well, that we don't have so much ‑‑ we have more in common than we have apart from each other. I'm not talking about the progressive machinery. I'm talking about the average Democrat.

Now, there are far more progressives in the world than I thought there ever were. I mean, you know, there are more communists. I thought communism was a joke. So you're not going to get everybody. Because we have to wake up and understand that there are people in our own country that are Americans that have a right to a point of view, and that point of view is the Constitution stinks on ice, the free market system stinks on ice, and it's had its whirl but it's time for it to be over. That is the valid view. I completely disagree with it, but it is a valid view of many people in this country, more than you care to recognize. There are those Americans that would like to destroy America as we know it today to create or fundamentally transform into something that they are being awfully cagey about but will look, will look like a very weakened America in a global governance situation. Those are your choices. Constitution, entrepreneurial spirit, a can‑do attitude, an attitude of common sense, or global governance with a weakened America that plays a secondary role at best, and misery.

Now, let me talk to the tea parties in the 9/12 group, and I single the Tea Party out because the 9/12 group I hope ‑‑ well, I can't ‑‑ let me just speak to the tea parties and the 9/12 group because I see the 9/12 group maybe differently than what they've made themselves into. So I don't know. So let me lump you all together just in case. You have to understand that you have won. Now the tough part begins because what you've done is you have, all the way along you have been ridiculed, you have been made fun of, you've been called violent, they have only shown pictures of you in, you know, the Statue of Liberty uniform, they have done everything they can, everything they can to make you unlike anything that you really, truly are.

Why did the Black Panthers come out ‑‑ which, they didn't show up. Why did the Black Panthers come out and say that they were going to ‑‑ we'll meet Glenn Beck on the mall on 8/28. Why did they do that? It was strategy. It was to suppress the numbers, to keep people away. They don't know you. And that's why you didn't stay away. Why did I ask you, don't bring any signs? I got heat for that. A lot of people wrote and said, we have a right of free speech. Okay. Whatever. Please. Just bring your children, not your signs. What was the thing that was absent from the coverage, I mean besides accurate facts, what was absent from the coverage of 8/28? That they were racist and then showing racism, you know, racist signs, that they were crazy. Only the Huffington Post ran pictures of people that were dressed in red, white and blue, but they didn't look crazy. But they tried to make them crazy because they were wearing, you know, flag shirts. The angry looking sign holders, all of that was absent. Why? Because you brought your family.

Here's my message to the tea parties. You now are in the catbird seat. You are now in the position of power. There is no way ‑‑ forget about what anybody says on television today. You are not getting anything but lies. So forget about television and forget about listening to the talking heads on television that are giving you the same old stuff because they're either a Republican or a Democrat or they're establishment. The establishment, you are witnessing today the beginning of the end of the establishment. And you've done it the right way. But now you have to understand that now you have an opportunity to expand this beyond the Republican Party. You already have. Because it's not Republicans. It's Republicans and independents. You've got two thirds. You have the Republicans and the independents. But now we have to reach out to everybody else that looks at their party and the Democrats and say, I'm not that. I don't like the way they did this, I don't like what they're doing now. I believe in the free market system, and how are you going to do that? By not allowing the media to typecast you anymore. You must understand there is ‑‑ there are phases of a movement and the first phase is get out, get into people's phase, let your voice be heard. Your voice, believe me. Let me read the headline again: Establishment freaks. Now you really want to freak them? Tea Party, I have nothing to do with you other than I'm one of your voices. No greater or any less than your voice. And there are a lot of people in the Tea Party that disagree with me, and that's fine. But Tea Party leaders, hear me carefully. Listen carefully. Now is the time to not be what they paint you as. You are not there. I'm saying ‑‑ let me free phrase it because it's not right. Don't be ‑‑ don't appear to be what they paint you as, as a bunch of, you know, crazy ‑‑ here, let me just be real direct. Hang up the Statue of Liberty costume. It's been great, we've loved it. Hang it up. Leave it in the closet. Don't bring your signs anymore. Your power now is in the power of numbers. You must always appear on television, always appear as a group of people that are just locking arms, are absolutely for peace. Believe me, believe me, this is going to be important. You must make a clear stand for peace, not because everybody says you're violent but because violence is coming and it is coming from the left. And so America must have a clear choice. You really are, you really are the people that are peaceful, that believe in the free market system, that believe in small government, that don't believe in corruption, that don't believe in special interests and earmarks and everything. That's who you really are. Now make sure that you are always seen on television just as that, just as people that everybody can turn on the TV and go, you know, I'm like them. Bring your families to these events. People must see you and say, I'm like them. And I'm sorry. As much as I appreciate the Statue of Liberty uniform or the Uncle Sam outfit, I don't see myself as that. There's a difference between the beginning of a movement and actually governing. The beginning is over. Last night you saw the end of the beginning. Now you're in the game and you are in control. Now you go for the real win and it can be done. You can win. Delaware, don't you listen to them. She can win. I don't know anything about her. I mean, assuming that she's not nuts, but you can win. Because there are Democrats that want to join you, that may not agree on every little issue, but if you stand for principles, if you stand for the Constitution, if you stand for enough is enough, you can win. And don't you let anybody else tell you different. You just need to make sure that you always appear as who you really are. Because they are working overtime to make sure you don't.

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.
