NY Times Yellow Journalism

GLENN: Let me say this. John McCain, you cheated on your wife? Now you're on record denying it. You cheated on your wife? You think you had problems with conservatives before, you're done for all time. Next accusation, McCain gave special report to the lobbyist causes. They offer zero evidence. The worst they seem to have on him is that he wrote letters that supported positions her client supported, but they were also positions that McCain had publicly supported his entire career. So how is that a special favor? That's like somebody cozying up to me. It's like, "Glenn, will you do a radio show today? Okay." Am I doing them a special favor? I do a radio show every day! Then they dredge up the Charles Keating story. McCain was part of the Keating Five. Why this is news now 20 years later is beyond me. This is something that maybe the New York Times maybe should have considered when they were endorsing him! He was part of the original Keating Five. These are the five senators that met with banking regulators to ask them to back off Keating. It ended the careers of three senators. McCain got away with a slap on the wrist saying that he just had bad judgment on the incident.


 This is a rehash of a 20-year-old story but with the problems that are going on in the banking community right now, I'm telling you this is going to be in 527 commercials, you are going to see this everywhere. "If you can't trust John McCain during the last banking schedule -- 20 years ago -- how could you possibly trust him now." This story is going to be retold almost daily until November by the media and Obama and the Clinton operatives. Regardless of the truth, it will probably be effective as McCain tries to make the case that he's always standing up to special interests and yet he didn't 20 years ago. The Keating Five. Call John McCain's office and tell him we don't want any of these kinds of banking scandals." And it's going to be effective.


 Next point is the shamelessness of the New York Times. It is beyond argument. I hate to sound like Al Gore here but the hate is over on the shamelessness of the New York Times. The Times itself says that it was asking McCain for interviews on this story back in December. In case you remember, December would have been a good time when we still had decent candidates to pick from. They had this story. We still had Romney, Giuliani, Thompson. We could have chosen those guys instead, but the Times sat on the story for months. Why? Because pinhead dopes all around the country were voting for John McCain because they said he's the most likely to win in a general election.


 If the New York Times would have done this story back in December, would we have a different frontrunner today? My answer is yes. Stu says maybe.


 STU: Yeah, I would agree -- like, I would agree if there was something really to this story, which at this point I don't see anything to the story. So --


 GLENN: It's enough -- look. One of Rudy Giuliani's problems was everybody knew his family was a nightmare. The reports, there's nothing to that story.


 STU: Yeah.


 GLENN: You don't know -- his son hates him. Well, give my son a few years.


 STU: He's going to hate -- oh, God, he's going to hate you.


 GLENN: I mean, I've got four children. I think three of them are on the fence already.


 STU: Definitely, no doubt about it.


 GLENN: I mean, for the love of Pete. So you're -- what? Your 20-year-old son hates you? How could that happen? Nothing to this story. But the appearance of scandal, the number of scandals. Bernard Kerik.


 STU: Oh, yeah. What about his recordkeeping when he was going to Long Island for --


 GLENN: Yeah, yeah.


 STU: That story was nothing.


 GLENN: Nothing.


 STU: Nothing. And it still hurt him.


 GLENN: Exactly right. This would have been like wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. You knew with Rudy Giuliani that the campaign that was running against him could come out with a bunch of hearsay nonsense. Some of it may have been true. Some of it may not have been. This John McCain stuff, maybe it's true. Maybe it's not. I don't know. He denies it. He's -- what was it? He's a patriot warrior. What was it the New York Times --


 STU: Maverick warrior.


 GLENN: A maverick warrior, a patriot, a man who's beyond question. So I don't know. Maybe the New York Times should take his word for it! They waited until the decision was made and there were no other candidates to choose.

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.
