GLENN: Here's the thing. I said on stage last week that I would like to meet

Chris Christie. Then they started writing stories, did Chris Christie snub Glenn

Beck? No, no. He's in New Jersey. He doesn't stand at the roadway, you know,

like, Hey, welcome to New Jersey. I'm Chris Christie. We didn't call. We didn't

ask. I said that on stage. So, then he makes some comment, somebody asks him,

where is he?

PAT:/STU: I don't know.

GLENN: Iowa? And here's what happened.

CHRISTIE: I heard that Glenn wants to meet me. I'm in New Jersey. You know,

listen. I feel really lucky that I have so many people out there who are saying

that my policies are good policies and, you know, all of those people deserve to

have my gratitude and he among others does

VOICE: You'll be fine if we acknowledge the fact that you didn't answer that


CHRISTIE: As long as you report accurately my answer.

GLENN: Okay.

VOICE: That conversation is your business.

GLENN: Yeah. Chris Christie, you would be the dumbest person on the planet to

meet with me. You would be and he's not. He answered that exactly right. I don't

know. Maybe he doesn't want to meet with me. Maybe he does. Maybe he doesn't

find it a relative question. I'm thinking that's probably

STU: I think that

GLENN: We've got people working on that day and night. They're trying to

connect us. I mean, that's ridiculous

STU: I feel like it's the reporter trying to get him to, you know, admit to

something or anger you or cause some controversy.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: When I saw that I was thinking if this guy distance to do the policies

and put in place the policies he's doing, he can call us anything he wants.

He can

TheBlaze: We all know that Glenn has a bit of a man-crush on the New

Jersey governor, but perhaps the feeling isn’t mutual?

GLENN: Oh, no, no.

STU: He can throw things at you as you drive by New Jersey.

GLENN: I'm going to go a step further. Chris Christie, you may like me; you

may not like me. You may trust me; you may not trust me. You know, I read

someplace that he doesn't want to come on the show because I'm

unpredictable. Yes, I am.

STU: Uh huh.

GLENN: I call a spade a spade. If I think that you're bluffing, if I think

you're lying, oh, I'll say it right to your face. So, I don't think he's

afraid of me. I mean, he's not he's in New Jersey taking on the unions. He's

not afraid to come on the show. But he may not like me. And that is totally

fine. I've heard there are some people in America that don't like me. I

haven't met anybody, but I've heard that rumor going around

STU: Seems impossible.

GLENN: Right. So, I don't really care. Chris, just in case you do like me or

you appreciate, you know, what we do or whatever, you have my permission to

rip me to shreds. You can rip me to shreds. If it helps you, continue to do

the hard work and have a spine, you throw me on the funeral pyre anytime you

want. I hate that guy. Go ahead. If it helps keep you safe, if it helps keep

you doing I want you to know, the minute you start doing weasely things, oh,

I come out for you like a box of rocks and this offer is over.

STU: Does a box of rocks chase how would a box of rocks come after you? Is

there any way, Pat, that you see that occurring? It doesn't seem like an

analogy that

GLENN: Let's say, let's see. Could I give you an example? Could we work it


STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I would like you to go get a box of rocks and brings it me. Okay? And

then, Stu, I want you to go down on the sidewalk.

STU: Yes.

Glenn: And I'll show you

STU: Uh huh

GLENN: How a box of rocks

STU: Uh huh.

GLENN: Shall can come after you

STU: I'm starting to see it a little bit.

GLENN: There you go.

STU: If he's weasely, you're going to come after him.

GLENN: If he's weasely, I'm coming after him and that's fine. But if he

remains doing the right thing for the country, I don't care what anybody

says about me. You would be stupid to meet with me because what will they

do? They would be I mean, you could meet you could meet here. You could have

a seance with all of all of the craziest people out there and O'Donnell

could use witch craft and bring Saul Alinsky back to life. You could be at

that seance bringing him to life and he could just come out and go, we must

destroy the planet and all that live on it, and you could say, yes, yes,

hang on. I'm writing that down. It could all be captured on tape. That would

get less press than you meeting with me where you say close the door and I

say, I hate your guts.

PAT: Because the way the seance would be presented is, oh, you're bringing

up say answers. What kind of conspiracy kook are you?

GLENN: No. They would actually report it this way: Of course O'Donnell was


STU: (Laughter.)

GLENN: All right. So, you know, Chris, bash me all you want. You didn't, but

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.
