Glenn Beck: Michelle -- Keep the spirits clean

Michelle Obama: It Means The World That "There Are Prayer Circles Out There"

GLENN: Well, look. There's an awful lot of power that Barack Obama has, a ton of power.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And he doesn't want to lose that power because he has tons of power, lots and lots of power. Now, you may wonder --

PAT: Should we pray for their power?

GLENN: We should pray for their power.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Now, you may say to yourself, gee, Glenn, why are you saying that he has tons and tons of powers and concentrating on all the power that he has and pray for his power? Make sure that he keeps his power? He has a lot of power now. We have the power and when I say we have the power, you ask yourself, who is we? What do you mean by that, Glenn? Well, I don't know exactly. I'm just babbling on myself, but here's Michelle Obama.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Once again, we have the power. You know, we got this man in office. I think we're all proud of Barack and his accomplishments. Everybody I know in our community are praying for him. Every day we feel that and let me just tell you listeners that it means all the world to us to know that there are prayer circled out there and people who are keeping the spirits clean around us.

GLENN: The spirits clean?

MICHELLE OBAMA: So, that means a great deal. So, we've come a long way, but we've got to keep it coming and this election is going to make a statement about whether, you know, Barack's power and support is as deep. There are people who are questioning whether his support is as deep, you know. They want to make out like, well, this is just a one-time thing. Right?

PAT: I want to make out like that, like this is just a one-time thing

STU: Yeah. Well --

PAT: I freely and openly admit, yeah, I want to make out like this and I'm praying for Barack every day,

STU: Of course.

PAT: That he'll change his big government socialist-type policies.

STU: And what kind of evidence is there that this would be a one-time thing, that his approval rating has dropped by 30 points and he --

GLENN: Well, he has a lot of power.

STU: -- and HE might lose the Senate and he's going to lose up to --

GLENN: But he has power and the spirits around him are clean.

PAT: Yeah. And his power is deep right now.

GLENN: What? Is he channeling Joe Biden all of the sudden? He's a very clean spirit.

STU: I thought we were complaining about that.

GLENN: He's an articulate spirit, very clean spirit. We're trying to keep them -- all the spirits around us clean and articulate.

PAT: Good-looking, clean, articulate spirit.

GLENN: What is that?

STU: I don't know. I thought we were making fun of Christine O'Donnell for witch craft and then she's talking about clean spirits all-around here. It seems like -- I don't understand. I thought we weren't supposed to talk like that.

GLENN: Well, why would we have a problem with Christine McDonald when we have --

STU: O'Donnell? You're thinking McDonald's because you're eating. That's why you're thinking McDonald.

GLENN: Let me ask you this. My schedule is very packed. So, here's the two days after the doctor's like, can you slow down a bit? I'm like, yeah, yeah, whatever. I've got to eat now and do a show and write a book and I'm working on a stage show. Shhh, Doc. Call me back later. I'm busy.

So, why would we worry about her? Why would anybody make a big deal out of her being a witch, when she's not, when not only do we have, you know, we're keeping the spirits clean, have you ever heard a Christian ever talk about that, keeping spirits clean around us?

PAT: It's an interesting way to put things.

STU: Was she meaning, like, the vibe around her, the positive energy type of thing.

PAT: I guess. I'm not reel really clear on that.

GLENN: Have you ever heard it? Have you ever heard keep the spirits clean around me?

STU: No.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Do you remember when Hillary Clinton was in with -- what was it? The Ouija board or something? Remember, when she was in office, she was -- it wasn't the astrologer. That was Nancy Reagan. There was something that Hillary Clinton was doing. She had a --

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Yeah. She had a seance or something. Do you remember that?

STU: I don't believe I heard about that.

GLENN: No, no. Look this up. You look this up.

PAT: I'm going to?

GLENN: She had a seance and remember she said that or somebody said that she was trying to contact Eleanor Roosevelt's spirit?

PAT: Now that you mention Eleanor Roosevelt, I kind of remember that.

GLENN: You didn't believe me yesterday with Hugo Boss and the Nazi uniform.

STU: That's true. I did not.

GLENN: Look it up.

STU: I'm looking.

GLENN: While they're looking it up, doing the homework that they should have done, you know, before I even said it, they should have been prepared for that Eleanor Roosevelt --

PAT: That's clear, that's clear. The Hillary seance.

GLENN: If the spirits were clear around you, you would have known, or clean and articulate.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: They would have known.


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.
