Michelle Obama: 'Our souls are broken'



So patriotic it'll bring a tear to you eye... Thanks to Insider Payallin for sending this one in...

GLENN: The media is heralding this guy (Barack Obama) as a Messiah. There was a story in the paper over the weekend about how "24" made this possible, how David Palmer's character on "24". People see Barack Obama and all of a sudden they're okay because they think he's David Palmer. I got news for ya. If you're so stupid that you think that Barack Obama is David Palmer, you shouldn't be allowed to be anywhere near a voting booth. If you didn't think a black man could be President of the United States until you saw a TV show, you shouldn't be allowed near a voting booth.

William Crystal has a great article today, op-ed column in the New York Times of all places, and I just, this speaks to the arrogance. Fast forward last Monday, Bill Crystal writes: Wisconsin, Michelle Obama, in the course of a stump speech marked, for the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country. "For the first time in my adult lifetime," we talked about this last week. For the first time in her adult lifetime. Now, she came out later in a speech and she said, no, no, no, it was just because of politics. You know what? It's a recent thing in my adult lifetime that I've been disgusted by politics. Isn't it a recent thing? I was disgusted in the 1970s. I had hope in the Eighties. I even had hope in the 1990s. I didn't lose my patriotism. I didn't lose my hope in America. I was never not proud of my country. I'm not proud of the way my government works. I'm not proud -- not even of the system. I'm proud of the system. I'm not proud of the weasels that we have elected. I'm not proud of the stupidity of some people, the way they look at Barack Obama and say, "Oh, I don't know about his policies but he's got a nice website. I don't know about his policies but I sure like that message of hope and change." I'm not proud of that, but I am hopeful that there are more people that pay attention to policies that just think that he's David Palmer because if the majority of Americans just are voting for him because they think he's David Palmer, we're doomed.

So Bill Crystal writes on. He says, "Life for regular folks has gotten worse over the course of my lifetime." This is according to Michelle Obama. "There the through the Republican and Democratic administrations, it hasn't gotten much better." Life has gotten so much better in America. We are just at the beginning in my adult lifetime for us to pay for the mistakes that we have made. But you can't tell me that life isn't better than it was when you were growing up.

Now, there are things that I'd sure like to change but it has nothing to do with government. It has everything to do with who we are, what we've done, what we've allowed to happen, what we've allowed in our own homes, what we've said, "It's all right." It has nothing to do with the government.

Now, she goes on and she says all last week, she was just talking about the political process. Bill Crystal says, "That's not what she was talking about. She argued in a Wisconsin speech that America's illness goes far beyond its flawed political process." She says, "Barack knows..." this is how spooky this stuff is. "Barack knows at some level there is a hole in our souls." This is a variation of language that she had used earlier in the campaign trail. Quote: "Barack is the only person in this race who understands that before we can work on the problems as a nation, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation." Ooh. Wow, we have broken souls and apparently Barack Obama, a vote for Barack Obama is a vote for healing your soul. "Barack Obama", quoting, "is going to demand that you shed your cynicism, that you put down your divisions, that you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones, that you push yourself to be better and that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved and uninformed." Okay, okay. Gosh, how is he going to do that? How is he going to force us to come out of our comfort zone? How is he going to force us to come out of isolation? How is he going to force us to put down our divisions? How is he going to force us to shed our cynicism, that we engage? How is it Barack will, quote, "Never allow us to go back to our lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed"? You don't have to work to improve your souls. Just vote for Barack Obama. Our lives will be changed if we vote for Barack Obama, and I believe that's true.

I go back to the word, I scroll across the paper yesterday. Arrogance. I told you on this program, and Bill Crystal points it out. I told you on this program, I think it was after Iowa. I said, listen to the speeches that Barack Obama gives. He's brilliant. It was only Barack Obama and then late in the campaign Mitt Romney that started using the word "We" over "I." Barack Obama has used it the whole time, we, we, we. Hillary Clinton will get up and say, I'm going to do this, I have this platform, I'm going to be able to do this. Barack Obama says we're going to make the change, we're here, yes, we can. I don't think he believes it. I told you at the time that I thought he was brilliant for doing it because it makes it look like it's us, we're in it together. And we are in it together, but I don't think he believes that we're in it together. I believe this guy believes he is the chosen one, not in a Messiah sort of way but a political Messiah. He's the one. He's the anointed one. He's the guy that America has been waiting for. He says we're going to make the change that we seek, we're the ones. We are the ones we've been waiting for. It's true. We are the ones. I said right after 9/11 the greatest American generation is this one. It's the one that stands up and does the hard work. I'm not sure he believes that because he's going to force us to push ourselves to be better. He's going to force us to engage. He's going to demand that you put down your divisions, that you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone. He's going to unanimous that we do that. I believe Barack Obama believes he's the one that we've been waiting for, not we're the one. He's the one that we've been waiting for. And what is it that he's going to force us to do? What is it that he is telling us, you're going to get out of your comfort zone? I'll tell you this, 52% income tax, that's out of my comfort zone. I don't know about anybody else.

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.
