PAT: We played, I think we played this yesterday and maybe late in the show.

It's a new DNC ad. It's from the Democrat Party and they are talking about the

Republicans stealing our democracy through, I guess, contributions from evil

organizations like the Chamber of Commerce.

VOICE: Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie, they're Bush cronies. The U.S. Chamber of

Commerce, they're shills for big business.

PAT: Shills.

VOICE: And they're stealing our democracy. Spending millions from secret donors

to elect Republicans to do their bidding in congress. It appears they have even

taken secret foreign money to influence our elections. It's incredible.

Republicans benefitting from secret foreign money. Tell the Bush crowd and the

Chamber of Commerce stop stealing our democracy. The Democratic National

Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising.

PAT: Tell them to stop stealing our democracy. I wonder how many people picked

up the phone and made that call: Hey, stop stealing our democracy! How are we

doing that, sir? "By doing stuff that you do! You know what you're doing. I

don't have to explain it... to you."

So anyway, the mainstream media has even heaven. They picked up on this. They

have actually challenged this Chamber of Commerce thing because they all know

this is as desperate as it can get. You are taking on the Chamber of Commerce

now because they are putting some money into this election and then you are

trying to allege that they are getting foreign money. Even Bob Schieffer from

CBS News who had David Axelrod on his show kind of went after him on it. Here's

what severe said to Axelrod.

SCHIEFFER: Now, I want to ask you about that because the New York Times looked

into the Chamber specifically and said the Chamber really isn't putting foreign

money into the campaign.

PAT: Thank you.

SCHIEFFER: That it does charge its

PAT: New York Times says the Chamber of Commerce is not putting foreign money

into the election, yet the Democrats continue to use that.

SCHIEFFER: Aren't affiliates' dues that bring in less than $100,000 a year, a

lot of organizations including labor unions do that. But the Chamber has an

annual budget of $200 million, and it says along with that, it keeps these

foreign dues separate. They do spend heavily in politics, $25 million so far.

They expect to spend $50 million. But this part about foreign money, that

appears to be peanuts, Mr. Axelrod. I mean, do you have any evidence that it's

anything other than peanuts?

AXELROD: Well, do you have any evidence that it's not Bob, the fact is that the

Chamber has a certain fact but they won't release any information about where

PAT: Yeah, he just gave you evidence actually. He just told you New York Times

looked into it. He just cited some evidence.

AXELROD: their campaign money is coming from. And that's at the core of the

problem here. What we've seen in part because of a loophole that the Supreme

Court allowed earlier this year, we now see tens of millions of dollars being

spent by the chamber and a number of organizations, some of which just cropped

up.

PAT: Like unions?

AXELROD: Ed Gillespie and Karl Rove

PAT: AFL CIO.

AXELROD: Tens of millions of dollars from undisclosed

PAT: UAW.

AXELROD: Names like the American Crossroads Fund and they are spending heavily

in all these elections. In one race in Colorado

PAT: SEIU.

AXELROD: There are six different organizations running negative ads against a

Democratic senator there, Michael Bennett. No one knows where the money's coming

from. So I guess my question back to you and for your next guest is why not

simply disclose where this money is coming from and then all of these questions

will be answered.

SCHIEFFER: Well, that will certainly be fine with me, but I want to go back to

this thing about the Chamber of Commerce. If they are only taking in $100,000 a

year.

AXELROD: If they are?

SCHIEFFER: But you question that. You say they

AXELROD: Well, I don't know. No one knows, Bob. The point is I can assert

anything I want but you have as a good journalist you ask me, well, how do we

know that's true. Do we have documentation to prove that.

PAT: And he did. Listen to this. Listen to this lame explanation to Bob

Schieffer: And I can make any assertion I want and you'd ask me where I got it.

He just did. He just asked you where you got it. And the response was? How do

you know it isn't that way?

AXELROD: If the chamber opens up its books and says here's where our political

money is coming from, here are the million dollar, $2 million or $3 million

contributions we've gotten from this company or that industry

PAT: And you don't even know they have gotten that.

AXELROD: Then we'll know. But until they do that, all we have is their

assertion.

SCHIEFFER: Do you I guess I would put it this way. If the only charge three

weeks into the election that the Democrats can make is that somehow this may or

may not be foreign money coming into the campaign, is that the best you can do?

PAT: Thank you! Thank you! Bob Schieffer, CBS News, posed that question. That's

how bad it's getting for the Democrats. And by the way, unbelievable hypocrisy

from these people. We'll get into that with the contributions. Remember the

shady contributions that Barack Obama received during the campaign? We'll tell

you about that, next.

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.
