Glenn Beck: Democrats having trouble 'explaining' accomplishments

8.28.10: The Documentary

This is our first full-length documentary and it’s going to blow you away. It’s an exclusive inside look at the making of the 8-28 Rally. When we say exclusive, we mean it. From the time Glenn arrived in Washington DC to the time he took the stage our cameras were rolling. You will not believe what went on behind the scenes. Learn more...

GLENN: I like the fact that Joe Biden says that Democrats are not running on the administration accomplishments because, quote, it's just too hard to explain.

STU: (Laughing). Yes, it is.

PAT: Yeah. It's hard to explain how they're destroying the country and going socialist and still yet we're not. It's good, it's really

GLENN: It's too hard to explain.

PAT: See, you people are just so ignorant, you can't understand it.

GLENN: You know what? That's what it is.

PAT: That's what it is.

GLENN: That's what it is. I don't think you are that stupid. Yeah. Maybe but maybe it's just me, hmmm?

STU: Any idiot could see how raising taxes in a recession is going to help the economy, Glenn.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Unless you're a moron. I mean, it's just unbelievable. People are too stupid.

PAT: Anybody can also see that when you take over 1/6 of the U.S. economy, right, you take over two American auto companies, you take over part of the banking industry and all of home mortgages virtually plus all student loans, anybody could see how that's not socialism.

STU: I know. Why can't people understand that?

PAT: It's not socialism.

GLENN: I don't.

STU: Hard to explain it.

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: What, are you stupid? How can you call that?

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: Socialism.

GLENN: Did Barack Obama say that we were going to do these shovel ready projects? We got a lot of shovel ready projects?

STU: Oh, yeah, definitely.

PAT: Over and over and over again.

STU: Big push for the stimulus, yeah.

GLENN: He's coming out now and this is going to be another one of those that's going to be hard to explain and now they are not going to. He's coming out today and saying that there is no such thing as a shovel ready project.

PAT: We've got to find the audio on that shovel ready project. Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: I find that interesting. And then we have the Chris Matthews audio of the candidate in Ohio that was dressed as a Nazi. He's and I just want to be clear here. I don't understand people that do the dress up thing, you know, and go

PAT: Well, it's somewhat nerdy, but it's like, you know

GLENN: It's less nerdy than dressing up like, you know, a stormtrooper, you know, from Star Wars.

PAT: Yes, it is, I'd say so. Or maybe it's less nerdy than the Renaissance festival thing. I'm not sure.

GLENN: But it is in the same category as the Renaissance festival.

PAT: It is. It's in that realm.

GLENN: It's like, I am your lord now and I'm going to eat a giant turkey leg in front of you. I don't under almost like whenever you go to you know I've gone to fairs or whatever and you have the turkey leg. It's almost, I feel like I'm on the border of a Renaissance fair, you know? The next thing you need is just either a big cape and big jeweled rings on all of your fingers, "Speak like this, peasant," and so I don't understand it. But I think you're in the same category if you're dressing up or the battles and the reenactments, although I can at least understand that a little bit more than the Renaissance fair.

STU: Well, you could understand it because you did it. I mean, you can understand it because as a child you were dressing up in royal garb.

GLENN: I was abused as a child. I was abused as a child.

STU: There are photos of you in colonial garb, sir.

GLENN: That is evidence for the court on my abuse.

PAT: And not admissible in this case. It's a totally different case. It's got nothing to do with this one.

GLENN: All right. But we only have a couple of seconds. So when we come back, I want to play the audio because I don't understand this is you're going to go, hello, like you expected to. I don't understand Chris Matthews and his point on this. It's very odd. We'll play it next.


It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

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."
