O'Donnell and Church & State






Learn more about Glenn Beck's Broke


Coming Tuesday, Oct 26th

GLENN: All right. Let me go back to the let me go back to the debate from the

other night because this gets into a constitutional debate with what's his name,

Coons.

PAT: Chris Coons and Christine O'Donnell.

GLENN: The guy who's definitely not a Marxist.

PAT: No, he was it was a joke.

GLENN: He was kidding.

PAT: You could read that and

GLENN: And he, you know, he's a complete capitalist just like Barack Obama is.

Exactly the same.

PAT: Oh, yes. Yes.

GLENN: Exactly the same. Do you remember how people said that Barack Obama was a

Marxist?

PAT: That's silly.

GLENN: So stupid.

PAT: Silly.

GLENN: An they are just so unevolved.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: But anyway, so they're having a he's having a debate, Coons and

O'Donnell, and here's what happens in the debate.

COONS: principles is the separation of church and State.

VOICE: Okay, with that very

O'DONNELL: Where in the Constitution is separation of church and state?

VOICE: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Listen to the mocking.

GLENN: Listen to the mocking.

PAT: laughter.

GLENN: What she said was, where do you find the separation of church and state

in the Constitution?

PAT: In the Constitution.

GLENN: Play it again because listen to the crowd.

PAT: It's amazing.

VOICE: (Ckaudio) principles is the separation of church and state.

VOICE: Okay, with that, very

O'DONNELL: Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?

(Laughter).

GLENN: Listen to that.

PAT: I mean

GLENN: Listen to that. And somebody even says, excuse my language, but somebody

even says, oh, my God.

PAT: Like, what an idiot.

GLENN: Like, what a dope.

PAT: This person's running for office?

GLENN: It's not in the Constitution! It's not in any federal document! None! Not

one! Not a thousand! None!

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, what is so funny about asking that question? It is the fundamental

principle of our country. It is one of the founding principles! It is the

establishment clause that the government shall not make any laws establishing

religion.

PAT: Establishing a religion.

GLENN: Or

PAT: Prohibiting

GLENN: Prohibiting.

PAT: the free exercise thereof.

GLENN: Exactly. So what do you have? You cannot make the federal government

cannot make an official religion, and they cannot pass any law to stop the free

exercise of that religion. Well, let me ask you something. How exactly does the

state take a child away from a family that believes in a different kind of

medical procedure? I mean, that is as far out there as you can get. But tell me

in the Constitution how they do it. Now, the State can. The State can.

(Laughing).

PAT: Dumb.

GLENN: Read the Constitution of Massachusetts and it will blow your mind.

PAT: I get a kick out of these people who say, read the Constitution.

GLENN: These people

PAT: Why would I read the Constitution?

GLENN: These people are so ignorant, the I'm sorry, but it is time to call a

spade a spade. The progressive left is ignorant and underinformed. And it's self

imposed, self inflicted ignorance.

STU: Yeah. I mean, obviously the phrase "Separation of church and State" does

not appear in the Constitution. We sustained the cause

PAT: Neither is the concept.

STU: As you pointed out, the establishment is the big thing there.

PAT: Yep.

STU: But I think the basis of this is that to conservatives today, the phrase

"Separation of church and state" means how it's being treated. Like, you can't

have the Ten Commandments in a building. You can't have Santa Claus at a school

play. And, you know, to liberals they're trying to make it seem like, you know,

we think that the government should start a theocracy, which is obviously has

nothing to do with what conservatives want.

GLENN: But see, this is what they've done. What they've done is "She's a witch"

to discredit her with all of the Christians. "She's a witch." And then when she

get her in front of the public because people aren't "She's a witch? What? We're

going to elect Harry Potter? What?" So discredit her on that.

And then in the most incredible only the stupid don't figure this out. She's a

witch and she's so Christian, she wants to jam this down your throat!

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: That makes no sense except to stupid people!

STU: The same stuff they do to you all the time, though.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: You're faking it. You're this crazy faking guy, oh, Lonesome Roads." And

then statement, "He's a crazy man. He believes all this stuff. He's a crazy

racist."

GLENN: "He's trying to make everybody into a Mormon. That's what he's doing. He

believes it, but he's so fake, he's only doing it for bucks." Which is it,

brother?

STU: Pick one.

GLENN: Which is it?

STU: Pick one.

PAT: And they get away with it. They get away with it.

GLENN: Why? Because of stupid, uninformed people that still are trusting these

so called leaders. They are leading you to slaughter. They are leading you to

slaughter and slavery! Where else does it end? You become so dependent on them,

you take everything they say as gospel. They are lying to you!

So where does that end? It ends with, "That's not even in the document." Read

the damn document! No, no, no. "No, read the document. I get a kick out of these

people who say read the document."

PAT: I might understand it if I actually did that. Who wants to do that? Not me.


 

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."
