STU: Update on this as well, Glenn. Tonight on television John Stossel going to be on.


 GLENN: Oh, is he really?


 STU: It's confirmed now.


 GLENN: Oh, he's got a great article. Have you read his article today?


 STU: I haven't read it today, no.


 GLENN: He's got a great article on, this isn't crime control. You think this is -- gun control ain't crime control. Oh, don't miss it tonight. It's fantastic. He is great on this. Can you start to put that together, Stu?


 STU: Yeah.


 GLENN: Let's have that together by springtime and really do our homework and make it exact so it's not -- I don't want any party politics in it. I want no partisanship.


 STU: Yeah, just their comments, their words. Makes it simple.


 GLENN: Should we put another candidate in there? Should we put like an -- I mean, if there's an independent or if there's a --


 STU: We could put Ralph Nader in there. I wonder how he would come out.


 GLENN: Let's put Ralph Nader in there and let's put -- isn't there the Constitution party? Who was the guy that -- not the Constitution party. The libertarian, isn't there another libertarian that's running again?


 STU: Well, you obviously have Ron Paul who has been talking about third party but, no, I don't think so. But they are still doing the libertarian primaries and stuff. But my guy might be Wayne Allyn Root. I'm not convinced --


 GLENN: Is this the prohibition guy?


 STU: No, this is a libertarian. He might be my guy. I'm not confirmed yet, but I'm looking closely into third party candidates.


 GLENN: Are you like a superdelegate? Will you take bribes for it? I'll take bribes. At this point I'll take bribes.


 STU: This is a capitalist system. I will definitely take bribes.


 GLENN: I'm sorry. I'm not taking bribes. I'm taking advertising money.


 STU: Sure, whatever.


 GLENN: Whatever you want to call it. I don't really care. It's -- no, it's part of your advertising budget.


 STU: Yeah.


 GLENN: That's all it is. Bribe? Your Honor, advertising.


 STU: In this campaign, I mean, I'll be more than -- you know, if I can get some money out of it, at least that's something.


 GLENN: No, I mean, forget about it. You know what I mean?


 STU: Whatever.


 GLENN: It doesn't matter at this point. They are going to take us to the same place. So let's just make some money on it. Look, here's the deal. I'm officially for sale, okay? No, it's only pale if you don't know I'm being paid.


 STU: That's right.


 GLENN: So I'm officially for sale. If somebody wants to buy my endorsement, it's -- hey, if you think it's worth something, God bless you. I think it's worth deep in the seven figures. That's just my opinion. You might want to have it evaluated some place else. I'll take another opinion


 STU: I don't know. Is that --


 GLENN: Only cash.


 STU: Is there some FCC sort of, not FCC --


 GLENN: Maybe SEC.


 STU: Some rule that John McCain threw in there to get in the way of free speech?


 GLENN: I don't know. John McCain would know that rule and that's why he would be best. I'm just saying, John.


 STU: I don't know, though. Obama's raising a lot of money.


 GLENN: A lot of money.


 STU: And it would be a big thing for Obama to have your --


 GLENN: Let's try this. Let's try this out.


 STU: Yeah.


 GLENN: Give me a dollar figure and a candidate.


 STU: Small, you know, $50,000, Dennis Kucinich.


 GLENN: I think this whole space alien thing is not all it's cracked up to be. I don't think that -- I think that was taken out of context.


 STU: That's what you get for $50,000?


 GLENN: $50,000, that's what you get, Dennis.


 STU: What if I were to give you, say, $200,000 and I was going to say my name is Mike Gravel; help me out.


 GLENN: $200,000?


 STU: For Mike Gravel.


 GLENN: Have you ever been to Alaska? Alaska is great. This guy ran Alaska for a very long time and people are vacationing there for a really long time. He could probable do some things in America. With the dollar falling, a lot of people are starting to come and visit America. More tourists are coming. Maybe we should have the guy who's made Alaska what it is today.


 STU: That was very good. And that's only for 200k?


 GLENN: 200k, but it's Alaska and that's pretty much, that's all I can do for you. That's it.


 STU: Barack Obama's raising, what, $60 million a month. So he could really --


 GLENN: So Barack Obama, how much?


 STU: Just to start off, I'll give you a million dollars.


 GLENN: A million dollars for Barack Obama, here's what you get. Comrade!

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.
