Glenn Beck: Chris Christie Porn


Classic Christie: Vows to ‘Punch’ Teachers Unions

GLENN: All right. So anyway, here's Chris Christie and talking about the

situation of education and what should be said to parents by the principals.

PAT: And the first thing he pointed out is that throwing money at the education

problem doesn't help.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: $25,000 per student in New York or Newark, and their education system


CHRISTIE: Yet, yet 104,000 students are trapped in New Jersey today in 205

chronically failing stools. In 2009, 40% of New Jersey's African American

students and 32% of our Hispanic students were unable to meet any basic

standards on the national tests.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

CHRISTIE: In 2009 nearly 30% of all eighth graders in New Jersey, not just our

urban challenged children but of all eighth grade students in New Jersey lacked

basic math skills.

REPORTER: Governor Christie said he wished failing schools would be honest with


GLENN: Now, listen to this.

REPORTER: He said on back to school nights this should what should happen.

CHRISTIE: Principal should walk into the classroom and say, parents, good

evening, I'm the principal and I want to welcome you to back to school night.

Your teacher this year is Mrs. Smith. Mrs. Smith is an awful teacher.

(Laughter). Really seriously by any measure, she's not good.

STU: (Laughing).

CHRISTIE: Her students underachieve consistently on testing, they don't like

coming to her class. She doesn't really care. She's using the same lesson plans

that she used 15 years ago. And no matter what we've tried to do to encourage

her to get more training, to change her attitude, she simply refuses to do it.

Now, our problem is that because of this union contract we have in our district,

we can't fire her or do anything to her.

PAT: Wow.

CHRISTIE: So as much as we've tried, we just have concluded that we're not going

to change her. Have a great year. (Applause).

GLENN: Fantastic.

CHRISTIE: The worst schools are continuing to be allowed to operate without any

effort systematically to fix them. It is time for us to stand up and demand that

the teachers, the principals and the administrators truly do what the teachers

union says they do every day.

GLENN: Okay.

CHRISTIE: Putting the children first.

GLENN: Stop. This is the deal. This can sound like an anti teacher rant. It's an

anti bad teacher rant. And the teachers unions keep all unions keep the worst

people as part of the team. The idea, unions are socialist in nature. Everybody

gets paid the same. There's nobody better or worse. And you just have to carry

the weakest among you. And that's not good. That's not good.

Now, I know 90% of the union workers like last night we were in a union theater.

We couldn't move a chair. That's ridiculous. That's ridiculous. I mean, I almost

had to go into the cafeteria and have a union member pull the chair out from the

table so I could sit. I mean, it's ridiculous.

STU: Yeah, the rules are ridiculous. Nice guys and everything.

GLENN: They were great guys and they did their job.

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: I didn't see a single lazy person at that theater. They were great. They

were great. But the union rules are ridiculous and there are those union members

that suck. And they should be fired. Now, I didn't see any last night, but I've

worked with unions many times and most of the people are great. It's the union

leadership that is out of step, that don't care, that are all about their own

pensions. That's why their union pensions up the he top are all fully funded,

sometimes at 120%. But the worker? Their pensions are not. And those are the

ones that are in trouble. The leadership? Oh, they got theirs. They got theirs.

Union members need to wake up. It's the leadership that's the problem.


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."
