Glenn Beck: Are We Alone?



TheBlaze.com: Aliens or Air Show? Strange Lights Appear Over TX and NYC

GLENN: So we're going to play this audio and video, and you can see the video at TheBlaze.com. This video is from a news station in El Paso, Texas, a couple of days ago. And they also include some video of the same thing happening in New York about, what, three days ago, five days ago, sometime last week. And it is stunning. And what it is is some sort of I mean, UFO only means an unidentified flying object. So you don't know what it is. Put explanation at the end is weather balloons or military and

PAT: That's always the explanation.

GLENN: Yeah, but you've never seen anything like this. You've never seen anything have you ever seen anything like this?

PAT: No, the closest I've seen that was really weird and the explanation didn't fit was the Phoenix deal. Remember that?

GLENN: No.

PAT: With the thousands of lights in the sky and it was it happened over several nights. I think somebody in Phoenix would remember it better than me. But there was some phenomenon in Phoenix that was really bizarre. But this is

GLENN: Hang on. I just remembered something else. Do you remember something in the last year? There was another there was the thing where they said, oh, it's that's just a remember? It was like over in Europe some place? And they were like, "Oh, it's just a big light bulb."

PAT: Oh, the missile thing?

GLENN: Yeah, a missile.

PAT: Remember that?



Glenn Beck is seen here on GlennBeck.TV, a feature available exclusively to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. Learn more...

GLENN: Yeah. And it was bizarre. It was totally bizarre. That, I believe, that was man doing something really spooky, I think. I don't think that's like, "Don't worry, that's just an alien spacecraft." Wait a minute. That's what you're admitting to? What is it really? I mean, it was spooky looking.

This is very different, and the video starts in one point of light falling from the sky, and it looks like a falling star. It looks like a meteor coming right at ya. And then it breaks into four of these lights. And then they just stop and they hover. And then they watch. You're going to watch. We're going to put it on Insider Extreme. This video is available at TheBlaze.com, but we'll put it on the Insider Extreme if you're watching. Dom, pick up Pat's computer here, Camera 3. There it is. Okay. Now watch this, Stu, and tell me if you've seen anything like it. Go ahead.

REPORTER: Strange and mysterious lights hovering above east El Paso tonight. What's even more strange, very similar lights were spotted in Manhattan just two days ago.

GLENN: I don't think they maybe used the X Files music.

PAT: I don't, either.

GLENN: As one. Now it breaks off.

PAT: Into three.

REPORTER: Above the skies of Northeast and East El Paso tonight, a site that was a little more than stunning.

PAT: Then they stop.

REPORTER: This is what one of our photographers rand Marino caught on video. One solitary light that appears to be falling in the sky. But that light suddenly breaks apart into two, then three separate lights.

GLENN: Now watch.

REPORTER: Those lights then just freeze in the air and begin to hover.

GLENN: What the hell is that?

REPORTER: Eventually a fourth light can be seen.

PAT: Tell me that's a balloon.

REPORTER: The lights appear to be hovering and moving in a strange pattern. Then they all disappear.

GLENN: Boom.

REPORTER: We received a lot of phone calls into our newsroom tonight

GLENN: What the hell is that?

REPORTER: from people on the west side of town and on the east side.

STU: That is bizarre.

REPORTER: All of them wanting to know what was going on.

GLENN: Now, all of this

REPORTER: And descriptions from everyone calling basically the same. One caller thought a plane was falling. Another thought it was a meteorite. Others, though, said it looked like a UFO. Now

PAT: You think?

REPORTER: Want to hear get really creepy? Check this video out. Just two days ago in the sky above Manhattan people froze above the street there as they saw these three lights hovering in the middle of the day. And check this out. The three lights are close to each other, then spread out into this triangle pattern.

GLENN: Watch this.

REPORTER: Now, look at the patterns side by side. This from Manhattan and the other tonight in El Paso.

PAT: How about that.

GLENN: It's the same pattern.

REPORTER: They do look eerily similar.

PAT: You think?

GLENN: That's it.

PAT: They look more than eerily similar. They are exactly the same.

GLENN: Find that video at The Blaze and you tell me. You know what we should do is The Blaze should go and they should put together that video along with that creepy missile video and whatever it is you're talking with in Phoenix, was it in the last year?

PAT: A year or two or three.

GLENN: And may I ask and look, I'm not a believer in UFO I'm not a believer in green men. I mean, I don't think we're alone in the universe but I just don't you know, I don't think that we've been watched and envied and spied upon. I don't believe any of that.

PAT: I don't, either.

STU: Well, that's what they want you to believe. They want you to not believe.

GLENN: When you say "They," do you mean "Them" and am I included in them?

STU: Hmmm.

GLENN: Tonight on an episode of Vee. So I'm not a believer in, you know, in little green men watching us. However, I can't explain that video. I mean, I could buy the missile thing maybe. I don't think it was a missile, but I think that was manmade. This very well may be manmade as well, but I don't know who's funding that research anymore. George Soros.

STU: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: I don't know and maybe George Soros, he is so evil, he might be from another planet. I don't know who's funding something like this. I mean, it's bizarre. But did you notice also about, what was it, two weeks ago? Did anybody see the little story that came out? And I just laughed about it and then I started thinking about it. I thought, wait a minute no, I'm kidding. I just laughed about the fact that the United Nations just appointed someone to be our point person on Earth.

STU: Right. I forgot about that.

GLENN: Since when

PAT: Alien ambassador.

GLENN: do you need a point person for an alien ambassador?

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: What was that all about?

STU: That is really strange. Really strange.

PAT: We have a representative to space aliens just in case, I guess. We don't, but the UN does.

GLENN: No, see, the only thing that makes me think that that's nothing is that it's from the UN.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: They are always doing stupid things like that.

STU: If aliens were coming, it would take them at least 20 years to actually come up to them and talk to them.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. No, they couldn't talk to them but they could embezzle from them.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: You know. The aliens would be like, we just wanted to talk to you. And all of a sudden, man, your wallets are missing.

PAT: Well, besides, aliens never show up at the UN. They always show up to some farmer in Dubuque, Iowa.

STU: That's true.

PAT: You know?

STU: Good point, Pat.

GLENN: Could we go down to another crazy, even crazier? Because really, how do you explain this?

STU: I mean, it looks like, almost like you know when you have like a big fireworks display and there's lights that come down and they divide?

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: I've never seen them, I've never seen them hover.

STU: Stop. For minutes at a time.

GLENN: They just hover and then they change patterns? And then it's the same pattern that that same firework did in the sky two days before in Manhattan during the day?

STU: That part of it doesn't look like fireworks.

GLENN: Yeah, okay. So I mean, I think the most logical explanation is that somebody with an awful lot of money used to be us is doing space experiments but NASA right now is too busy on their Muslim outreach.


So

PAT: We know it's not them.

GLENN: We know it's not them.

STU: Well, we want them to feel good about their math skills. Who else is going to do that?

GLENN: So what could that possibly be. And then the Muslim or not the Muslim outreach but the alien outreach thing that we have at the United Nations. Do you think there's a possibility? Because I really, this is crazy, this is really crazy. But isn't this more logical than space aliens coming down? How crazy is it that you think, is this maybe the United Nations trying to have us have a fear against an alien life form so we'll all unite? I mean, because that's how every space that's how every movie ends. The united you know, the world comes together and they are like, oh, we've got to put aside our differences and all join at the UN so we can so we can defeat these aliens. I mean, that's more logical, isn't it? Or is that because that's crazy. That's crazy. Which is more logical? That there are space aliens or that somebody would be using some sort of technology to make the world think that there's space aliens? Or that these are weather balloons?

PAT: I think clearly weather balloons.

STU: I think they are weather balloons on fire in descent. And then inside there is another balloon which, when the fire caught that balloon, it released the inner balloon which, again, was helium and that floated and then floated out to that separate pattern because there was also strings you couldn't see that hadn't fully extended yet. So when the helium blew up, they flew to their fullest extension and that's how that happened. And, of course, the other one in the other city is just coincidence.

GLENN: Let me ask you this. There's another coincidence.

PAT: Good explanation.

STU: Thank you.

GLENN: Here is another coincidence. Why did the testimony happen? Was it in front of congress? Why did the testimony happen here just recently with respected Air Force people coming out and saying, "By the way, we want you to know we've seen the alien ships?"

STU: I did see that. I always feel like that's the line when you cross from respected Air Force agents to nonrespected Air Force agents.

GLENN: No, it is.

STU: When you do that.

GLENN: It is. But again, what's up with that? Where did that come from? I remember reading that story going, what the hell are they doing.

PAT: They used to bend over backwards to say that there were no aliens right?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: There were no UFOs, there were no real actual reports, that Area 51 has nothing in it. All of that stuff, they bent over backwards to tell us.

GLENN: Is it possible that the reason why Rahm Emanuel left is because the president figured out that Rahm was a lizard man?

STU: I haven't seen that being reported on.

GLENN: I haven't

STU: Which means they're hiding it.

GLENN: I just haven't seen it.

PAT: Collusion of the mainstream media.

GLENN: You know, that guy, if he was just a Republican, the Democrats could have made a great campaign commercial on that. Why is it that Rahm Emanuel says he doesn't remember the TV show Vee? Why is it once we see weird lights in the sky, he scatters like a reptile? Mmm hmmm.

STU: I don't mean to freak you guys ow.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But I just remembered as we were talking about this, I clicked on one of the windows I had open to talk about today and it's about how Dennis Kucinich might lose his race.

GLENN: You know why?

STU: Well

GLENN: He'll disappear into obscurity. No, he's going back to the mother ship.

STU: He's probably looking for an exit to go back home. We've been talking about how Dennis Kucinich is an alien for years.

GLENN: Just got this in from a producer in Richmond: What's up with the lights above the sky in Richmond's fan district last weekend? Dozens of people report seeing strange lights in the sky, both Saturday and Sunday night. Jeff Brown tells CBS News 6 that the object he saw Saturday night had three lights in the shape of a triangle.

PAT: There it is again.

STU: Yeah, look at the

GLENN: Witnesses in Virginia say that the light spotted Sunday night was just a small ball of light. There was no beam that could be associated with a strobe light. It was seen moving in the air for about four hours.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: What the heck is that?

STU: Someone did point out that it could be a promotion for the event, that show. I don't know. It's just a theory.

GLENN: By the way, I'm watching that show. Tremendous.

STU: Is it good?

GLENN: Yeah, I've only seen one episode. But it's, you know, a two hour opening episode. I haven't had time to watch any more. Really good. Really action really good.

PAT: Is it about a space event?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Yeah?

GLENN: It was unclear in the opening but it's clearly some sort of alien or something like that. There's I mean, that would be can I tell you something?

PAT: That would be a great stunt.

GLENN: That would be the greatest stunt ever, although it would be very irresponsible. I was just sitting here behind this microphone, if you're watching on the Insider Extreme, I purchased this microphone recently to try to remind myself of the days when radio had integrity and the people behind the microphone had integrity. Of course, I didn't think about it at the time that this is the microphone that Orson Welles used as well during

PAT: The biggest hoax of all time.

GLENN: The biggest hoax of all time. But that was a stage play, a radio play. But as I was saying it, as I was just talking about this here a second ago, I thought, my gosh, this is exactly like war of the worlds. This is the kind of atmosphere that the country was in fear, the country didn't know what was going on, they were afraid of the Nazis and everything else. And somebody perpetrated that hoax.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Orson Welles.

PAT: Right. This would be a cool, high tech way to do the same thing, wouldn't it?

GLENN: Wouldn't it be?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Really expensive. I don't know why you would do it, but it would be cool. I think people might be a little pissed if it was just a promotion or something.

PAT: They would.

GLENN: But

PAT: They would.

GLENN: But I believe that the United Nations could have been bought off enough to be able to be a part of it.

 

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"

We've heard a lot about the 1776 Commission over the past several months. From the mainstream media, you've heard lies and slander: It was a racist panel put together by President Trump to peddle a whitewashed version of American history.

In reality, the 1776 Commission was established by President Trump in the fall of 2020 with the purpose of promoting "patriotic education." Not to mandate it, not to propose legislation – simply to PROMOTE it. The media and academia lost their minds over this now controversial idea that we should teach young Americans to appreciate the nation they've inherited. And predictably, just hours after Biden took the oath of office, he signed an executive order to dissolve the 1776 Commission, calling the commission's report "offensive and counterfactual."

Glenn Beck presents the 1776 Commission's report in its entirety, because unlike the media and President Biden who want to hide it from you, Glenn wants you to seek the truth and celebrate Independence Day with pride.

Watch a preview below or catch the FULL, 5-part presentation of the 1776 Report on BlazeTV.com or Glenn Beck's YouTube channel.

I am an Irishman and in 2006, I was blessed with the opportunity to spend Independence Day in America. It was a magical experience I will never forget and one I am desperate to repeat.

Everything about the day was magical. I can remember every little detail: seeing the pure joy on people's faces when they saw family members, not seen since Christmas; enjoying burgers and hot dogs being grilled to perfection in the mid-afternoon; jumping on a boat and witnessing an awe-inspiring fireworks display with the feel of a cold beverage in my hand; coming ashore and sitting around an open fire, toasting marshmallows.

As fun as these activities were, they are NOT what made the day magical.

The day was and is made magical remembering WHAT Americans are celebrating: being thankful for the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence and the idea of America which improved EVERY aspect of our world.

I would be honored if you would allow me to share five pivotal points from the Declaration, explaining how they started America on the path to becoming an exceptional nation, and how you can learn from the founders' example today.

1 The Layout

Take a look around society today, and you will notice a prevalent theme. The majority of people are angry, upset, and frustrated. They love to highlight the parts of society they view as a problem and tear it down. This requires zero talent. Even newborn babies with no verbal skills and very little knowledge of the outside world will let you know when they are unhappy by crying for a clean diaper, food or attention.

History is filled with people complaining and starting wars because they feel they have been wronged and sought a future "free from their oppressor".

Thomas Jefferson and your founders were different. Before mentioning any issues with the King (they waited 1338 words), they first explained their vision and how America would be different from other nations. They boldly declared that all men were created equal and have a God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

This principle of explaining what you are for has a long track record in American society and has long lead to effective change.

This principle of explaining what you are for has a long track record in American society and has long lead to effective change. This includes famous speeches by John F. Kennedy declaring, "We will go to the moon by the end of this decade," or the great Martin Luther King Jr. telling everyone how he "had a dream."

LESSON: Tell the world what you stand for -- not what you stand against!

2 Role of Government

I have spent over seven years with The Blaze, promoting your founding principles and explaining how America is unique and different to every other nation in the world. Every principle, policy, plan and idea can be traced back to one core principle: How we view government and its role in society.

On the surface of history, it is very easy to believe that our world is very different and would provide many different answers to this simple question.

Just look at our world today and you see many different power structures. England retains a monarch. European countries, like mine, are democracies. Iran is a theocratic-controlled country. Russia is an oligarchy. Inside those countries, you will notice differences in ideologies between communism, socialism, fascism, liberalism and even conservatism.

YES, they all look very different. However, if you look deeper into those countries, you will notice they all view government the exact same.

Government is a central agency that possesses the power to be the moral arbiters of society, the ability to be the great equalizer and most importantly they are the provider of rights.

Does this mean every government uses this power every day?

NO.

Clearly, there are governments around the world who are more open to freedom and view government as the last resort. However, every country believes government always has that power and there are situations when government must take control for the "greater good".

If you doubt this, look at the response to the coronavirus pandemic. Even countries that love to talk about freedom and identify as freedom-loving, removed their citizens' rights in the name of public safety. You witnessed everything from governments shutting down businesses, banning you from traveling more than three miles from your home, limiting the number of people you could have to visit your own house and enforcing you to wear a mask.

How could they do this? Because government is the power structure of all these countries and providers of rights. Any government that has the power to confer can also rescind them under the right circumstances.

Your founders were very clear that they did not share the world vision of an all-powerful government.

The idea of America is different. Your founders were very clear that they did not share the world vision of an all-powerful government. You can see this by reviewing the structure of the Constitution, but that foundation was started in the Declaration of Independence when they spoke about the Law of Nature and Nature's God, which highlights ALL rights come from God. You are born with these rights and it is the government's sole responsibility to ensure these rights are never taken away.

3 RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Take a step back and look at the public discourse today. You will notice the majority of people love to talk about their rights. My friends on the right love to talk about their right to free speech and guns. My friends on the left love to talk about their right to healthcare and abortions. When was the last time you saw anyone online talk about their duty and responsibilities? It's not a very popular topic.

Your founders were not dumb men.

Their genius was understanding the laws of nature and basic first principles. They researched world history -- from the great empires of the past to senates that were supposed to last forever, examining why they failed. While there are countless reasons for each, understanding one concept is critical. When freedom becomes all about rights and forgets about responsibilities, it creates a vacuum. Historically, the government always fills that vacuum. This creates a prime opportunity for a tyrant to come to power and solve a public need and always ends the same way - gaining more power and stripping you of your individual rights.

Your founders feared this vacuum and warned against it TWICE in the opening paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence. They spoke about your right to alter and abolish your government, instituting new safeguards. Then they spoke about your right, and duty, to throw off the government and provide new guards.

LESSON: Freedom without responsibility will always lead to tyranny.

4 RACIST FOUNDERS

As an outsider, nothing annoys me more than the constant attacks on your founders and their brilliance. Were they perfect? NOPE. Should they be worshipped like Idols? NOPE. Are there things we can improve upon? Yes. For example, it's 2021; why does the post office need to be included in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution?

Despite their flaws, they provided America with a great platform on which to build. If America is to survive and prosper, the IGNORANT attacks that America's founders were old racist white men with wooden teeth must stop. Why? Because it is a LIE!!!

I could write at length about this issue alone, but I will provide two simple facts.

Firstly, please close your eyes and imagine an actual racist (no, not your typical Donald Trump supporter). Imagine how they look, how they sound, what words they use and everything down to what aftershave they wear. Got that vision? Good. Now try imagining that vile, disgusting racist say the following:

ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL!

Did your vision say those words? Do you think people like David Duke would say them, let alone sign their name to a statement declaring this as a self-evident principle for the world to see?

Answer: NO!

The second fact requires you to have a reading of history before America. Thomas Jefferson could have very easily left these five powerful words out entirely or just use the accepted language of the day from the Magma Carta which stated:

"All FREE men are created equal."

If Jefferson and the founders were racist, why did they improve on the language of the day and declare this truth as self-evident?

If ...the founders were racist, why did they improve on the language of the day and declare this truth as self-evident?

5 FORGOTTEN FOUNDERS

If you look at culture and politics today, you will notice a common theme where everyone just wants to win, regardless of the cost. Society tells us winning is everything, and there is no room for failure. Is this true? Can society progress really progress without failure and sacrificing everything they have for the greater good?

American history is so vast and deep that it can be straightforward to focus on the great and famous leaders who survived like Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison and Franklin.

This particular weekend, I would like to briefly highlight three patriots who took the ultimate risk by signing the Declaration of Independence. They lost everything, and are sadly forgotten by many who teach history.

JOHN HART: John was a widowed farmer in New Jersey with 12 kids. He was rich, well-known in society, and employed many. When he signed the Declaration, troops attacked his farm with orders to execute him in Hopewell. He fled and eventually died in hiding.

FRANCES LEWIS: Frank was involved in international business and made a fortune on the mercantile exchange. Like John, he was rich, powerful and employed many. When he signed, he returned to find armed troops at his home, taking possession of it. They arrested his wife, starved and mistreated her and although she was later released, she soon passed away due to the horrific treatment.

RICHARD STOCKTON: Richard was a wealthy lawyer who studied at Princeton. He served on the New Jersey Supreme Court and had the respect of his peers. After signing, he was locked up, starved, tortured, and robbed of his possessions. His treatment was so bad that his final days were spent living on the charity of friends.

These brave men could have chosen a much easier road in life. They could have ignored the calls for Independence, paid any additional taxes to the King and still lived a great life. They had everything you would deem desirable in society -- money, earthly possessions, name recognition, and respect.

...these men... risked everything they had so everyone could have a brighter and freer tomorrow.

When they signed the Declaration of Independence, the only thing they could gain was an opportunity for absolute freedom. This ideal was so powerful that these men, and countless others, risked everything they had so everyone could have a brighter and freer tomorrow.

LESSON: Pursuing a higher aspiration is more important than winning.

Personal Request:

It is popular for Americans to say "Happy 4th" or "Happy 4th of July."

PLEASE STOP SAYING IT!

After reading this, realize how important and significant your founders to America and the world. It is disrespectful to them, their memory, their sacrifice, and everything they fought for. After all, would you go up to a Christian and say "Happy 25th?"

NOPE.

May I wish you and your exceptional nation a very HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
