Arianna Huffington 'confused' by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Back to my original question. What percentage of Americans understand what we're on the verge of? We what do you suppose the percentage of Americans that believe that there are revolutionaries that want revolution, that we are on the eve of profound dramatic change, that we are fundamental transformation is here and it is not it's not an America that you recognize. And that this country can clamp down on media and people that are speaking out overnight. Overnight this stuff happens.

PAT: And if you, if you do speak out and you talk about people like George Soros, who has done this kind of thing

GLENN: Over and over and over.

PAT: Over and over again.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And they are you're called a conspiracy theorist or you're living in a fantasy land like, you know, Arianna Huffington just said about you.

GLENN: What did she say?

PAT: He was living in a fantasy.

HUFFINGTON: (Inaudible). If you would watch Glenn Beck in a fantasy. I mean, he wakes up and decides George Soros runs the world and then works out, you know, a complicated, confusing way of presenting it. It's entertaining. (Inaudible). It's da daism.

GLENN: Da daism. Da daism. Stop.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Stop.

STU: No, I think he got the first thing. I think he wanted the Green Acres thing. Yeah, it was Green Acres he wanted.

(Music playing)

PAT: Da daism. The lizard brains, darling.

GLENN: You know what's amazing? Did you hear what she said? She said complicated, confusing way, but it's entertaining. How can it be entertaining if it's confusing and complicated?

PAT: Right.

STU: Right. And it's complicated and confusing to her. That's because she can't understand.

GLENN: No, she understands. She understands. What did Cass Sunstein say? What did he say about people that would speak out and out the government? What did he say? Make it

PAT: Make them look like they're conspiracy theorists.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: Even if it's true.

GLENN: If it turns out to be true, if you come out against the government

PAT: Oh, it's effective.

GLENN: Make it look like a conspiracy. Discredit them. Even if in the end it turns out to be true. They are doing that. I mean, I don't know why people won't take people at their word. You know what I mean? Listen to their own words. So I want to ask you guys. I say it's only about 10% of the American people that are really, truly awake. Stu?

STU: Uh

GLENN: That really understand. You know, they are not thinking, oh, you know what? Next year could be bad on unemployment. Next year could be off with their heads revolution. May not be but could be. We could see what we're seeing over in Europe next year.

STU: Yeah, if you're talking about riots in the street and stuff like in Europe, yeah. I mean, I think there's 10% of the population that sees that as a legitimate possibility. I mean, not certainly anything that's locked in by any means. We've been able to avoid it mainly so far. But it seems like it's happening over there. And these are not countries, this is not Zimbabwe having these rallies. These are well established, you know, very modernized economies going through these troubles.

GLENN: What is the percentage of people think that their country could be lost, their freedoms could be lost, the media could be lost as we know it? I'd say it's under 10%.

STU: Yeah, I would say under 10% for that, sure.

GLENN: Pat?

PAT: I don't want to get in trouble with Fareed Zakaria. So I'm going to say 1%.

STU: I'm going to say 97% Fareed. 97%.

PAT: Back that up. Back that up, Stu.

STU: Uh oh.

PAT: Back that up. There's 300 million people, 97%

GLENN: How does a country prepare? How does a country prepare? How does a country survive? How does freedom survive if only 10% is vigilant, is willing to say it could happen here?

PAT: What was the percentage in the revolution? They think about 20%. So we just have to wake up another 10 if your figure is right that it's 10%

STU: Not that we're looking for revolution obviously.

PAT: Not that we're looking for, no.

GLENN: No, but they are. They are.

PAT: We're looking to avoid it.

GLENN: Look at this you've got to watch this video on The Blaze. They use the word "Revolution."

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, you know the lady who is overseeing TARP? She's using the word "revolution." She said, you know, this country doesn't come to revolution quickly, but anybody who thinks we haven't moved in that direction is fooling themselves, and she's using that as a good thing.

STU: Jeez.

GLENN: As a good thing. They are they are revolutionaries. Man, when will people wake up to this?

STU: And you have it's difficult because you have the word "Revolutionist" thrown around in so many different contexts and so many different meanings and, you know, you hear

GLENN: No, no.

STU: For example, it was a Ron Paul campaign slogan. I mean, was Ron Paul looking to violently overthrow the government? No. Are people who are, you know, associates of STORM trying to overthrow the government?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Well, yes, they said they wanted to. So I mean, there's two different ways here and

GLENN: Same with WikiLeaks. Same with WikiLeaks. This guy is going to be I mean, you know, even last night I was talking to the Judge and I said, Judge, you know who this guy is. And he said, no, I really don't. You know, I know that he's exposing I said, he's not exposing the government. He's a revolutionary. He is on the far left. He is looking for global revolution, a collapse and chaos. Those are his own words. He's looking for chaos. And he said, well, I didn't know that. And this is the Judge. This is a guy who gets it!

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."
