Sir Branson goes nuts

Free Audio: Global Warming Song by BluBird

GLENN: Putting the radio back into Radio City, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. So glad that you have tuned in today. Dan, do we have the global warming song? It's been a while since we've done the global warming song and there's an awful lot of news on global warming, lot of news on global warming that is just too tremendous to pass up the opportunity to play the global warming song because I think this song really says it all. It's the song that I think when you hear the lyrics, you are like, wait a minute, I thought global warming might be a scam but no, no, no, now that I've heard this....

(Global warming song playing.)

GLENN: Stop the music! Because there's some very important news now. Over the weekend Sir Richard Branson took Virgin Atlantic Airlines and he flew it on biofuels. It was a few months ago I sat down for an hour with Richard Branson and he said, "I'm going to tell you I'm going to change the world. What I'm going to do, I'm going to change the world. I'm going to fly a jet plane on biofuel." I said, really? How are you making that? "All out of natural stuff, you know." I said, wow. Like, how are you making that? "Off natural stuff. Can't tell you now. You'll know about it soon. Watch for your local news, love." I said, all right. So I watch. It's fantastic. They flew a 747 -- well, actually it was to the a 747. It was an Airbus but a big Airbus. God forbid we use an American plane. They used a big Airbus and they put this synthetic fuel in it. Now, it was 80/20. It was 80% jet fuel and 20% -- and they flew it. They said it flew fine. In fact, they discovered that they could fly now a commercial jetliner with this particular mixture 60/40, 40% synthetic fuel. It's cleaner, you don't have to worry about oil. It's great. It's fantastic... or is it. The problem is he's making -- he got the fuel. The biofuel is made from some sort of a nut only found in the rainforest. Sir Richard Branson, I've never been knighted by the queen, but I am a thinker. You don't think that's going to piss off the environmentalists? I don't care how much CO2 you're not putting in the air. You're making it from a nut you get in the rainforest? What, are you crazy? I can't believe you even got away with this far. Can you imagine if some conservative said, "You know what, I bet there's a nut we could find on a tree in the rainforest. All we need to do is build a road and go start gathering up all them nuts in the rainforest." They would kill you! Well, not only was it made out of a nut in the rainforest, environmentalists already have protested because, they say, that doesn't go far enough. And he said, "But wait a minute. I can cut emissions down by 40%." Yeah, yeah. Even if you could -- and this is a quote from the environmental whackos out in England. Even if you could cut the emissions all the way down, use all biofuels, it's still not enough. Wait, I could use all biofuels and it's still not enough? Nope. We have to reduce air travel. This is -- I mean, Stu, do a Google search. I know I've read some place Bill Clinton saying something like the only really way to solve it is to stop or arrest the global economy, or something like that? Do you remember that?

STU: Not specifically but I'll look it -- yeah, he said slow down the economy.

GLENN: Slow down the economy.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: That's what it was, I've got to slow down the economy. No thank you. No thank you, uh-uh, no. "Well, we can slow down the economy but then we can bail everybody out that doesn't have a job anymore." Bill, let me ask you a question. Did you grow up behind a tree in the Brazilian rainforest, you nut! It won't work.

STU: Yeah, that's exactly what he said, Glenn. He said, "We just have to slow down our economy and cut back our greenhouse gas emissions because we have to save the planet for our grandchildren because..." and I'm adding this part, because the sun will kill us all. That's me.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: I'm adding that part, I want to be clear because I heard it in a song. But the first part of that is 100% accurate.

GLENN: Stu, talk me down from this tree. How do you not think that these people are intentionally bringing down our economy? How can you possibly think otherwise? Here's the former President saying we have to slow down our economy.

STU: I mean, you're honestly asking me how -- you're telling me that I'm the crazy person; how can I possibly not believe that everyone is trying to slow down and equalize our economy so we have one-world government?

GLENN: No, no, no. I know that sounds crazy.

STU: Do you?

GLENN: Oh, yeah, I absolutely do. Honestly.

STU: I just --

GLENN: Do you really think, do you really think I want to be this guy? Really?

STU: Because as you said, you said you had a theory you weren't ready to disclose. Let me think about that. Let me noodle that for just a second. Do I think that you're the guy who once --

GLENN: (Whistling). Do you know, Stu, do you think I think that makes me mainstream or popular for the long run in America? Do you think that makes me popular? Do you think I --

STU: Well, I think you think if you're right it would make you popular.

GLENN: And if I'm wrong?

STU: Well, I don't think you think you're wrong.

GLENN: Oh, come on.

STU: You committed to crazy stuff. You commit to crazy stuff all the time.

GLENN: What do I say all the time? "I hope I'm wrong."

STU: I'm sure you hope you're wrong but I don't think you think you're wrong.

GLENN: Yeah, I don't.

STU: See?

GLENN: No, but I mean, look. I didn't stumble onto this and go, oh, there's what I want. I am the opposite of most global warming activists. They don't care if they're right or wrong. It doesn't matter if they're wrong, oh, well, we've done good anyway.

STU: Yeah, the hard core activists certainly.

GLENN: They don't care. They don't care. And it makes them popular to be for it. This makes somebody a pariah and they certainly don't want to believe that people are intentionally orchestrating our economy. But I cannot -- you know, you listen to David Walker, the GAO guy. Here's the chief comptroller. "Explain it to me, David." You can explain how we are not going to be able to pay for anything by 2040.

Now, I saw another stat that came out this weekend that says 2028 it's over because everything's accelerating so rapidly. So tell me, are these people just so incredibly stupid, do they know exactly what they're doing? What's the answer? Or do they just, against all evidence, believe that they can just spend us into -- I mean, that doesn't make any sense. Think of that. In anybody's economy, spending more money when you have no more money, it doesn't -- it's not like a circle where, you know, genius and insanity are part of the same circle. It's not that circle. The economy doesn't work that way. It's a hole that just keeps going down. So tell me how these people think that we can do all of these things and survive in the economy. I don't believe they believe it. I believe they are moving us towards a social, socialist government. They are moving us into the exact position of Vladimir Putin. They are moving us into the exact position of China. They believe a benevolent dictator, a nationalized industry, a socialized country is the way of the future. They've believed it since Lincoln Steffens when he came back and said, "I have seen the future and it works; it's the Soviet Union." They believe it!

STU: I mean, I think maybe this is a different question than earlier, but I mean, if you are asking me do I think Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton look at this economy, "No, we don't have any money," are spending us into oblivion because they believe in a different society than what we currently have which is one that is based on some sort of higher --

GLENN: Socialism.

STU: Yeah, socialism but based on, they think it's better morally and it's okay if it slows our economy.

GLENN: Yes, yes.

STU: All that's stuff I agree with.

GLENN: That's all I'm saying.

STU: Then I'm with you on that. That's not a conspiracy. That's --

GLENN: No, that's -- well, it was a conspiracy. I mean, when it was Fabian socialism, it was a conspiracy. But they've got a website out. The Fabian socialists have a website where they talk about it!

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, it was a conspiracy at one point but it's not anymore. It's right out in the open. They believe that global government, the UN, et cetera, et cetera is the way it should be. And so they are taking us there.

STU: Yeah. I think, you know, there's different levels of it. Some of the people basically want us to move to a semi-socialist sort of, you know, where your taxes are just 70% and, you know, when they take most of your money but there's still some people that make -- you know, have nicer houses than other people and then there's that group and then there's the hard core group which I mean, again you look at the activists. There's no question what camp they're in.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. And that's why there's no -- that's why the left wins in this election. John McCain will sign these giant global warming treaties. He'll sign them.

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: He will give our sovereignty away under the guise of global warming.

STU: He's bragging about it at campaign events in the Republican primary.

GLENN: Yes. Hillary Clinton will do the same thing. Barack Obama will do not only that, he'll also, it was his bill. It passed. He'll sign it. The Global Poverty Act. This guy will take us to one-world government in the blink of an eye. But what they need to happen is they need people to be hungry. They need the New Deal. They've got to be able to have that hunger. If they have that hunger, they can scare people and they can move them and say, "Government, help me, help me, help me, I'm afraid." That's exactly what they're doing.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
