Obama FM

GLENN: You know, I'm beginning to think that just based on the Drudge headline that was earlier today, "Ten in a row," it's ten in a row, Obama, he's like a radio station. He's like a really crappy top 40 radio station that really doesn't -- do you remember those songs -- well, Shannon was one of them. I never knew that was about a dead dog. I had no idea it was about a dead dog. You know, I was like, (humming), no idea. Do you ever listen to the words of songs and you're like, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait a minute, what does that one say? You have no idea? You just like the song? That's Obama. He's one of those songs that you love but then you listen to the lyrics and you're like, uh-oh, that's not good. That's what he is... "Ten in a row."

So I say we start listening to his lyrics. Dan, did you finish the station? Because I think we should build a whole Obama station. Did you finish the sweeper? You know, go ahead. Play it. Here it is.

VOICE: Ten in a row. This is your ten in a row superstation. Superstation, Obama FM. Hi, you're on Obama FM in Atlanta. Hello, Dan. Dan? See, now -- Dan? He's there. He's just -- you know what he's doing? He's listening to the radio. It's like a 12 second delay. Hello?

CALLER: Hello?

GLENN: Yes, Dan, go ahead, caller, you're on.

CALLER: Glenn, I'm trying to talk you down off the ledge here.

GLENN: Can't be done. Can't be done.

CALLER: I mean, come on, Glenn. It's February, for crying out loud, February.

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

CALLER: Okay? Barack Obama is not going to carry Texas in the general election. He's just not. And as far as the early voting coming in right now, I heard a couple of callers last week on Rush saying that they were from Texas and that they were going to -- they were Republicans and they were going to cross over and vote for Obama to (inaudible).

GLENN: That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Obama is not the guy to beat. Anybody -- I hope Rush said this -- that anybody who says they're going to cross over and vote for Obama is a moron. The one that is beatable out of the two is Hillary Clinton, for the love of Pete. And even -- you know what? Let me ask you. Which one would you rather vote for as a conservative? Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama? If you answer Barack Obama, you're just on that change of hope. That's all that's happening. You're just, you're on -- I'm on the hope train: That's me. I'm on the hope train. I haven't listened to a word he said. Turn the lyrics up and listen to the lyrics. Do your homework and read a little bit about it. I'm sorry but I -- you know what? Unless this country -- here's the caveat. Unless this country pays attention to what the man's policies are, which, come on. Really. I know you'll pay attention. I'll pay attention. Do you see the dope in the car next to you? Look at them. Look at them right now. Speed up. Look at them. Look at their face. Do you think they're going to pay attention? Right now they're in their car right now just thinking either stupid thoughts or they're in their car and they're just (humming), and they're just belting it out at the top of their lungs because they don't think anybody's looking. Like all of a sudden I'm invisible, in my car. We can see you, dummy. Do you think they're going to pay attention?

If people pay attention to what this man is suggesting, he won't be President of the United States. You can't talk me off of that ledge. I just don't think that one's going to happen.

VOICE: When the lyrics don't seem to have any substance to you, but your kids love it anyway, this is Obama FM. Obama FM.

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."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
