Glenn Beck: 19 ought 7

GLENN: Now what's happening? Last week I told you, was it last week or two weeks ago. I know I said it on television to a couple of guests and they laughed at me. I said, I think we're three years away from being a socialized country, I think it's right around the corner, and I think the first step is what happened with Bear Stearns. I think we are going to start nationalizing this debt. I was laughed at. That's okay.

Other big events from 1907 include Oklahoma being admitted as the 46th state, the first electric ball being dropped in Times Square and the 1907 Romanian Peasants Revolt - our favorite revolt of the year...

On Friday, Stu, did you get the e-mail I sent you? The 1907?

STU: I did get your 1907 e-mail. It was a wonderful addition to my weekend.

GLENN: It was, wasn't it? And you actually, you actually followed through. You actually read up on it.

STU: Yes. You asked me to read it on it and so I did.

GLENN: But I ask you to read a lot of things and so you --

STU: I read a lot of things that you ask. I don't read everything that you ask because I have a life but I read as many things as possible.

GLENN: I just never thought, on the scale of I've got a life, the crash of 1907 I didn't think that you would actually read.

STU: I don't know how that happened but it did.

GLENN: I know. It must have been -- is Lisa gone? So here's the thing. I wrote you in that e-mail, I said, there's a couple of really interesting things that happened in 1907. I said, the next thing would be to have the Fed grab power to be able to strengthen the Fed. So what is the news today? Today the news is the President is going to come out with a proposal that gives power of the Fed over our economy, they have -- and here's how it's -- their model is the Nordic banking system. Norway, Denmark. Stu, the Nordic banking system. What form of economic system does Norway have?

STU: I know they have the weather in common. It's pretty cold.

GLENN: It's cold. No, I mean their economic system.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: Socialism.

STU: Oh, yes, that's it.

GLENN: Socialism. That's weird. Oh, by the way, Hillary Clinton has come out today with the first real detail on how she's going to pay for her healthcare system and what it's going to cost you and me and just want to let you know, I'm trying to track this one down so we can get a little more, a little more detail on this one. But she has promised that it will only cost between 5 and 10% of your income to have her healthcare system. Now, 5% of Stu's income is different than 5% of Dan's income and Dan's is different than 5% of my income. Is that a Progressive scale? Is that a 5 to 10% additional tax on my income? That makes sense. It's the only way you can pay for it. But isn't that socialism? I'm sorry. I just have never heard of the premiums costing us between 5 and 10% of our income until now. That's a good thing that you are releasing that, Hillary Clinton.

So now the Fed will be given control over the banking system entirely. Now, here's why it is important for you to know this. Here's why you need to pay attention to this story and don't worry about, oh, is Hillary Clinton going to be dropping out. Who cares if Hillary Clinton is going to be dropping out. They are stealing our country under our noses and they are doing it all because -- well, they're protecting you. They want to make sure that you're okay. No, they're not. Follow the money.

The international banking system is taking control of our economy. They already have most of the control through the Fed. They are strengthening a system that most Americans think is part of the government. It is not. And here's how it unites all of us. You want to talk about uniting messages? Here's one. How about to the right. May I just say here is a nongovernmental agency that is taking control of the government, taking control of our economy, taking control of our entire economic system and they're being handed it by our politicians. Do you want any more control of our economy or do you believe in the free market system? That's to the right.

To the left. I thought you hated big business. I thought you hated special interests. I thought the whole idea was to get big business out of Washington. You're handing, the biggest business of all, international banking, you're handing economic sovereignty over to business, not the government but to business. Business will tell the President you can pick from these three options. You know what? That's how I ask my kids what they want to eat: Do you want a cheese sandwich or do you want macaroni and cheese. I'm sorry, but the American people aren't 3. We can choose for ourselves. We are smart enough to see other choices other than the two or three the Fed has given us. But it's all about to happen and it's all about to happen in the cover of night and there's nobody in Washington that's willing to stand against it. And it is surprisingly enough happening at just an interesting time, when no one can afford to be seen standing on the sidelines saying, "No, no, we shouldn't do anything. No, this is a solution that will work."

GLENN: So Stu, how was your weekend in '07?

STU: Oh, yeah, I mistakenly started studying 1607 just because it's one of my favorite '07s.

GLENN: It was 1907.

STU: Yeah, once I got there, then the weekend really turned around.

GLENN: When you started reading it, did you notice the similarities? You can look at this all the way down the line. But 1907, did you notice the similarities? Did they kind of jump out at you?

STU: Certainly do. And one of the worst parts about it is just how government reacts to it, which is creating more and more regulation. I mean, when I read a story that's, when Barney Frank is telling me that President Bush's plan is a great step in the right direction, I want to shoot myself.

GLENN: And you know what? All of these politicians will jump on the bandwagon, some of them because they actually believe in the Progressive ideals of nationalizing everything, especially our economy. But others, just because they've got to do something, the American people are demanding that you do something. I did something. Look. I nationalized our banking and monetary system.

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.
