Glenn Beck: Gore does 60 min




Al Gore is asked the tough questions on 60 Minutes...

GLENN: Cut 2, please.

STAHL: He hired the agency that made the caveman and talking lizard ads for GEICO to create global warming commercials.

GLENN: Stop. He's going to spend $300 million on global warming commercials. May I ask Lesley Stahl, did they do any homework on who's paying for these commercials? Where did that $300 million come from? Can I ask Lesley Stahl, did she talk to him about the hedge fund that he started with his own money so he's going to profit on this particular cause? He's going to make money? The more people buy into it? It's almost like what he charges ExxonMobil with. It's weird, except that's not a giant corporation. This is a private individual that is personally being called the prophet of it and I'm wondering how you spell prophet, Al Gore.

All right. So he's hired all these people to make commercials.

VOICE: Now, the first thing we run on television... we didn't wait for someone else to storm the beaches of Normandy.

STAHL: The ads will start running this week --

GLENN: Stop. We didn't wait for somebody to storm the beaches of Normandy. I'm sorry. Is he advocating a "Go it alone" policy? I thought a "Go it alone" policy was what's wrong with George W. Bush. We can't go it alone, we shouldn't go it alone. We didn't wait for someone else to storm the -- well, not because of the frickin' liberals and Democrats, I'll tell you that. You can bet that Al Gore and -- that's William Macy, isn't it? Isn't that William H. Macy that's doing that? That's William H. Macy. You can bet that all the Progressives in Hollywood would be screaming that we shouldn't go it alone in Normandy! And here's the other problem. Normandy was Normandy. Normandy, America could go in and take care of it. Of course, we didn't take care of it by ourself, did we? We did it with allies. But even if we did it with allies, it was part of the world against another part of the world. With global warming you can't do that unless you'd like to separate all the airspace with giant walls. No, we can't build any walls or anything in this society, either, because of the Progressives. So I don't know how we're going to keep our air separate from the rest of the planet. I don't know how that's going to happen. I don't know how you go it alone in this particular issue and win because it affects the entire planet and we all have to do it or it's meaningless. We just cripple our economy -- or maybe that's the plan -- we just cripple our economy and not the rest of the world's economy. It doesn't work like Normandy but I know that's probably a little complex for people to understand who are trying to tell us how to regulate global temperatures.

STAHL: The ads will start running this week on the broadcast networks and cable channels in a blitz as sweeping and expensive as a big corporation's rollout of a new product.

VOICE: We can't wait for someone else to solve the global climate crisis. We need to act. We need to act now.

GLENN: Who's paying for it?

GORE: Don't tell me we can't solve this. We can solve this if we put our minds to it.

STAHL: Now, the rest of the future ads are going to stress this bipartisan coalition that's coming together on this.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. What a surprise, a bipartisan effort. Who would have ever guessed that a popular cause where there's profit in front of it and lots and lots of money to be made by gigantic corporations, who would have seen that politicians would line up to help? When there's votes to win or power to be gained? Who would have seen that one coming?

STAHL: Now, with some surprising pairings.

GORE: Yeah, Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich, two people who don't agree on much at all are doing an ad together.

STAHL: And several other unlikely couples like pat Robertson and Al Sharpton.

VOICE: We strongly disagree except on one issue. Tell them what it is.

GLENN: Global warming?

SHARPTON: Tell them what it is, Reverend Pat.

ROBERTSON: That would be taking care of our planet.

GLENN: Stop! Play that again. Can you play that last? They all agree on one issue. What was it?

SHARPTON: Tell them what it is, Reverend Pat.

ROBERTSON: That would be taking care of our planet. It's extremely important.

GLENN: Oh, my goodness, taking care of our planet. I thought we were talking about global warming. Oh. Because I disagree with global warming but I agree with taking care of our planet. Who doesn't agree with taking care of our planet? Oh, my gosh! That's like, "You know, Barack Obama and I disagree on many things but when it comes to George Bush, we agree. He should wear shoes. We agree on shoes." Taking care of our planet is not the same as what Al Gore is shopping, but maybe that's just me and a little too deep for the surface reporting you seem to get from 60 Minutes.

GORE: We all share the exact same interests in doing the right thing on this.

GLENN: We do.

GORE: Who are we on human beings? Are we all --

GLENN: We do. We all agree. We have all -- so much to lose if we don't do the right thing. Where we disagree is what the right thing is that we should do.

GORE: Are we destined to destroy this place that we call home, planet Earth? I can't believe that that's our destiny. It is --

GLENN: Stop. Are we destined to do that crazy thing like destroy our planet? I can't believe it. I'm a messenger of hope. Thanks, Al. I don't believe we're the ones to do that, either. I guess we agree on taking care of the planet.

GORE: Not our destiny, but we have to awaken to the moral duty that we have to do the right thing and --

GLENN: Stop. So now it's the moral duty. I'm sorry. I thought the moral majority was a bad thing. Now he wants to teach us about morals. Now it has gone from something that people like me have called a religious cult for a while to a cult of celebrity, back to a religious cult because now they are getting all these religions in. Oh, yes, the religions. We need to get -- it's a moral imperative. You're a bad person. God sees you as violating his commandments and his covenants if you don't do this. You have Al Gore teaching you about the moral imperative. Isn't that fascinating, from people who have hated the moral majority, who have said you've got to get religion out of politics. Now they're going too religion, to save something that's surely not a political move. It's global warming that's our moral imperative. The most important thing morally we've had to face in this, at least in this generation maybe of all time.

GORE: And get out of this silly political game-playing. This is about survival.

GLENN: This is about survival. It's about survival. Really? All of the ideas that they have proposed, Stu, will buy us in 100 years, how much will it buy us?

STU: Well, it depends on which, you know, one of the idiotic programs you're talking about but typically in 100 years it will buy us about a year, give or take if we're talking about Kyoto, that sort of thing. It's a year or two in about 100 years.

GLENN: So it's about survival. No, it's not going to save the human race if this is happening. It will buy us a couple of years. So that's what we're really talking about. Politicians working together, taking care of our planet, to do the right thing. Let me ask you something, Al. Who are you to decide what the right thing is? The people have decided what the right thing is. They believe in it. They just don't believe we can do anything to really effect it or change it in a sensible way. That's why you're mounting a $300 million ad campaign. $300 million ad campaign. Wow, that's a lot of money. I wish 60 Minutes would have told us where that money was coming from but we'll save that for another journalist some other time, maybe 100 years in the future.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
