Global Warming Mandate

GLENN: Well, a Silicon Valley lawmaker is gaining momentum with a bill now that would require "climate change" to be among the science topics that all schoolchildren are taught. State senator John Simitian who also wants to have future textbooks contain climate change material says you can't have a science book that is current and relevant if it doesn't deal with the science of climate change. Gosh, John, actually you can and you should. Since when is the science of the month required? Maybe we can is a science of the month club. How many trees, Mr. Environmentalist, would have been wasted if we rushed to print textbooks on global cooling in 1975? I'm just -- wasn't that the scientific consensus at the time? Global cooling. Then how many trees would have been wasted when we had global warming? And now we would have to reprint because it's global climate change. That way you get it covered either direction. He says this is a phenomenon of global importance and our kids ought to understand the science behind that phenomenon. You know what? I've got to tell you something. He used a couple of words here that are exactly, exactly appropriate. He used the word "Phenomena" because that's exactly what it is, a global phenomena. Wow. How about the scientists who understand it first? Could we do that? Right now we have a bunch of theories and despite what Al Gore's proclamation, you know, says, it's hardly settled. The state Senate in California approved a bill 26-13. Now it heads to the state assembly. Some say the science isn't clear. Others worry that this would inject environmentalism propaganda into the classroom. No, where would they get that crazy idea? In California? Never! Opponents want guarantees that the views of skeptics will be included. Oh, yeah, that's going to happen, yeah. Just like intelligent design, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh. That's included in the science behind -- it was a big bang; it just started. Just, boom! "What happened before the Big Bang?" What was -- shhh, quiet. Wouldn't that be one of the theories in forgive me if my confidence is a little low on the, "We just want the opposite side, you know, to be able to be in there as well." Uh-huh. Jeff Denham, United States senator, he has said we don't have factual information yet. The Earth is heated and cooled on its own for thousands of years. I don't know if there's any direct cause right now other than this is what the Earth does." We can do a better job of cleaning up the planet. That's what we should talk about." Whoa, what a hate monger Jeff is, huh? How did that guy get elected state senator? Why do you hate the environment so much? You just want to clean it? Are you in the pocket of big oil there, Jeff? Oh, crap, he operates a recycling business. Well, I'll have to reevaluate. Okay, I just does. He's a hate monger.

The main problem with the global warming argument is that the activists try to paint anyone who, you know, is skeptical of "Man is behind it," they try to paint them as in the pocket of big oil and haters of the environment. I'm neither. I think all of us love the environment. Who hates the environment? Is there anybody -- have you ever met anybody that's like, this damn environment; I hate it. I don't know anybody. I'm all for going green. That's great. Let's leave it in better shape. Just don't try to scare me into it, you know? There are other reasons to go green. The problem is the movement to go green has been hijacked by the radical socialist whose main purpose is to spread around wealth. You want to be afraid of something? Be afraid of global socialism. It's coming, my friend. Ooh, freak out; or just calmly look at the facts. Just calmly do your research and then go, wow, hmmm, maybe we should stop that. You know, here's a question. Why is it so many things are split right down party lines? Is it because the Republicans hate the environment? Do Republicans hate the environment?

See, this is what Jonah Goldberg, you know, wrote the book. He said that liberals never have to self-examine. They never have to self-examine. If you call, you know, a Democrat a socialist, they will say, yeah, that's right because socialized medicine, okay, that might be bad but we've got to help people out. We've got to spread the wealth, these evil hate mongering rich people.

We had a woman on the phone last week. She said she was a Progressive. I said, do you know what the history of Progressive movement is? Do you know who these people are? She said, no, it just sounds good because it's Progressive; it's for the future. Oh, jeez, what a pinhead. Yet, if you disagree with global warming, you're either in the pocket of big oil which, I mean, you can pretty much do a self-exam there and say, gee, do I have money from big oil? No, I'm giving them a lot of money every time I fill up my car. Or you hate the environment. Do I hate the environment? Why is it that I -- see, you have to ask questions: Why is it I don't recycle more than I should? Should I use styrofoam companies? We're constantly self-examining because we're constantly told we're evil people. Why do you think it's split down the party lines? We don't hate the environment. It's because the bills that have been put forth have socialist principles behind them. It is redistributing wealth. It's moving wealth from here to over here. That's what it is. It's the Global Poverty Act that passed last week with Barack Obama. The Global Poverty Act. He says we've got to stop spending money over in Iraq; we've got to start spending money fixing America first. But yet he okays and sponsors a bill that will give us almost a 1% GDP tax to the United Nations. Take a look at the viewpoints of these parties in the coming election. Which one tends to agree with socialist principles? That's why they don't have a problem with these bills. They're socialist principles. They also believe the U.S. should be propping up third world countries everywhere. I think this is a bad idea for many reasons but honestly if I were on the left, I think I would be against this bill as well. I would be saying, "Hey, hey, hey, keep it quiet on this bill, shhh. Dude, teachers are already indoctrinating the kids. They are teaching this without any mandate. Let's not rile anybody up. Keep it on the down low. You can show the Al Gore thing without showing the other side once." I mean, even the teachers who like the bill have a lot to learn before they, you know, before they really start teaching climate change.

Try this on for size. Although global warming is mentioned in high school classes about weather, it's currently not required to be mentioned in all textbooks. This is a great idea. I don't think there's any reason to talk about politics. There's no argument that there's climate change. The argument is how much is caused by the activities of man. Yeah, yeah, yeah. The argument is how much is caused by the activity of mankind, really? Silly teacher, that argument is already over. You need to go back and rewatch the Al Gore movie.

Do YOU pass? Glenn Beck takes the WHITE PRIVILEGE test

On his Friday Exclusive show, Glenn Beck took Monitor Racism's white privilege test, administered by psychologist Dr. Karlyn Borysenko. The test is comprised of 26 questions designed to assess how much white privilege plays a role in the test-taker's life.

Watch the video clip below to see how Glenn measured up:

Dr. Scott Atlas, Hoover Institution Senior Fellow and former chief of Neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to cut through the confusion and politics clouding our understanding of COVID-19 and to give the facts about the so-called second wave of this pandemic.

"I think everything should be done by looking at the data, instead of just models, or even just allowing fear to go into the exchange. So if we look at the data, we see there's no question that [COVID-19] cases are increasing in many states. And that's to be expected, for a few reasons," Atlas said.

"Of course, when we test more, we're going to detect more cases. And when they have thousands and thousands of people in the streets protesting, and screaming, and sharing megaphones, we're going to have more cases," he explained. "The question really is: What is the significance of these cases, and how we're going to handle these consequences?"

Atlas noted that the overwhelming majority of people getting COVID-19 in this "second wave" are younger, healthier people who are not at significant risk, according to "evidence from all over the world, including the United States."

"The overwhelming majority of people recover fully from the infection, so that's not really the issue. In fact, the issue is only two-fold," he said. "We need to protect the elderly high-risk people, particularly in nursing homes ... and prevent hospitals from being overcrowded. This is the point of the policy. The policy was never to stop all cases of COVID."

Dr. Atlas argued that political policies need to focus on protecting the most vulnerable without destroying the lives of those with extremely low risk.

"Frankly, one of the most egregious failures of the policy people is, not just allow[ing] fear to infiltrate their own thinking and do lockdowns, which are severely harmful," he emphasized. "But secondly, they have failed to reassure the public about the facts, and about the relative risk here. It's a very serious dangerous disease — for a group of people. And we know who those people are. They are high-risk, elderly people with comorbidities. Everyone else, it's not a high-risk disease."

Glenn asked Dr. Atlas to weigh in on whether or not schools should be opened in the fall.

"This is a slam-dunk issue," he answered. "There is zero science to back up claims that the schools should be closed or even opened with any constraints whatsoever."

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences

Terrorists

  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.

Terrorist

  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Traitors

  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.
