Glenn Beck: Is NBC 'criminal'?

GLENN: Pat, have you -- Pat's my best friend from Houston, Texas.  Have you read "Dead Heat" yet?

GRAY:  No.

GLENN:  Do you know who Joel Rosenberg is?

GRAY:  Yes.

GLENN:  Do you have to answer everything with just one word?

GRAY:  No.

GLENN:  Is this going to continue for a while?

GRAY:  Yes.

GLENN:  You are not really helpful.

GRAY:  No.  But I haven't read the book yet.

GLENN:  It's really good.  You should read it.  Did you ever read the Left Behind series?

GRAY:  I saw the movie with what's his face?  He was terrific.

GLENN:  Kirk Cameron.

GRAY:  Thank you, terrific.  He turned in such a powerful performance.

GLENN:  Okay, all right.

GRAY:  Man, that was good.

GLENN:  Yeah.

GRAY:  That was good.  I was surprised there was no Oscar involved.

GLENN:  Hey, we were just talking, off the air we were just having a debate because I think Stu is actually for the GE/NBC thing.

STU:  Well, yes, I am.  You know it annoys me more than anybody but the only thing I called you out on, on the break is your use of the word criminal.  To me it's shady.  You know, NBC is basically putting their credibility on the line.  They say that they just obviously don't care about credibility, where CBS will say, hey, we have this offer from one of our publishers because they want to at least maintain the appearance.

GLENN:  You know, let me tell you something.  Let me tell you something.  You could listen to Stu or you could -- I mean, who are you going to trust?  Are you going to listen to Stu or are you going to have a guy who's -- I'm sitting here with one of our researchers who is -- you know, he worked at the White House, clerked for the Supreme Court.  I mean, the guy is pretty smart.  An attorney, yada, yada, yada.  He knows.  Joe, come here.

STU:  Well, you didn't know when you said it.  Even though he agrees with you --

GLENN:  Stu or mine?  Joe, whose gut's right?  Glenn or Stu?

GLENN:  Stu is 100% right on this one.

STU:  Yes, I love it.

GLENN:  Nobody's really helping me out here.

GRAY:  He's got no credibility.  Jeez, Joe.

GLENN:  Stu, you're right.  It's not actually criminal.  Did I say criminal or damn near criminal?

GRAY:  I think you said darn near initially.  Borders on, something like that, criminal.

STU:  You said it like that before but you actually said criminal.  That's why I called you out on it because I don't think you actually believe that.  You stated it differently before.

GLENN:  No, it is not, it is not criminal.  It should be, quite honestly.  You know, even 60 Minutes, when they do, you know, an author, "Oh, let's look into the Valerie Plame story, and we've got Valerie Plame on."  They will say in there, because it's important, "CBS is a wholly owned subsidiary of VICORP -- or not VICORP, Viacom which also owns Simon and Schuster."  That's kind of important to know that this isn't really a news story.  This is a book publishing story.  And that's kind of what -- you know, you need to let the viewers know of NBC.  And you can say all you want, "Oh, everybody knows that GE owns NBC."  No.  No, they don't.  You think the regular people -- and do you think regular people know that GE, they will know, "Oh, yeah, makes my CAT scans because I've had my head examined several times."  They will know that, they know it makes light bulbs, they know it makes washers and dryers and freezers and everything else but they don't know they are the largest lobbying group, the largest -- think of this.  The largest lobbying corporation in America.  They spend more money than any other corporation lobbying congress.  This is everything that Al Gore and everybody else says we've got to stop, "Oh, it's horrible, oh, all the money that's involved, they're just trying to -- they're only duping you, they've only bought these scientists off, they've got enough money.  The evil oil corporations have so much money, they're buying all these people off.  What you're listening to is only propaganda financed by the oil companies."  Well, what about the energy companies?  What about the electric companies?  What about the company that makes the wind turbine and the new fluorescent light bulb?  How about that money?  Does that make any difference?  Damn near criminal.

I'm not getting help from anybody here.

STU:  I wasn't sure if it was time to respond.  I mean, you know --

GRAY:  You just don't know.  Am I still on?  Have I left the building?  Am I in the country?  I don't know.

STU:  I mean, the bottom line, though, is, Glenn, you've got -- first of all, "Electric" is in their name.  There's some degree of realizing that, I don't know how I got in the position of defending NBC on this, but -- and also, you know, I am completely with you.  They should say it.  They don't care about their credibility.  They have Keith Olbermann on the air calling himself a journalist and they allow that.  So they don't care about their news credibility at all.

GLENN:  Can you imagine?  Can you even imagine?  Can you imagine what CNN would say to me if I was on going, "I am absolutely a journalist."  Do you think CNN would put me on the air saying I'm a journalist?

STU:  They just obviously care a little bit more than NBC does about their journalistic integrity.

GLENN:  Oh, no, it's not just that.  It's not just that.  Every soul in the media, every single person in the media.  If I was a flaming liberal, let me tell you something.

STU:  Oh, yeah.

GLENN:  We would be making twice the amount of money that we're making right now, we would have lower ratings than we have right now, and I'd be allowed to call myself a journalist and I'd be allowed to put almost anything on the air.  We have to jump through hoops to make sure that everything is nailed down, everything is buttoned up, every single word is vetted to make sure it's accurate.  And I'm not a journalist.  I'm an opinion guy.  That would not happen at any place if it was -- if I was a flaming liberal saying, oh, my gosh, global warming, we're all going to freeze to death in a horrible fire in 20 years.

STU:  Right.  But that's exactly the point is that on global warming, NBC knows no one is going to call them out about it.  They know.  They don't have to worry about their credibility because no one's going to say anything.

GLENN:  It goes back to what I said to you last week after I got back from going to these big universities, Columbia and Princeton and I said, what scared me the most was the arrogance, the arrogance of these people.  That arrogance comes from, they think they're right, they're willing to do anything because it's good for the people.  Oh, the little people don't know.

You know what?  The ends justify the means.  I'm going to shut the pie hole for a minute and try to get an update on the border from Pat who's down in Houston, Texas and is following this.  Is anybody following the border right now with all the other things that are going on?  That spells trouble.  888-727-BECK.  More in a second.

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"

We've heard a lot about the 1776 Commission over the past several months. From the mainstream media, you've heard lies and slander: It was a racist panel put together by President Trump to peddle a whitewashed version of American history.

In reality, the 1776 Commission was established by President Trump in the fall of 2020 with the purpose of promoting "patriotic education." Not to mandate it, not to propose legislation – simply to PROMOTE it. The media and academia lost their minds over this now controversial idea that we should teach young Americans to appreciate the nation they've inherited. And predictably, just hours after Biden took the oath of office, he signed an executive order to dissolve the 1776 Commission, calling the commission's report "offensive and counterfactual."

Glenn Beck presents the 1776 Commission's report in its entirety, because unlike the media and President Biden who want to hide it from you, Glenn wants you to seek the truth and celebrate Independence Day with pride.

Watch a preview below or catch the FULL, 5-part presentation of the 1776 Report on BlazeTV.com or Glenn Beck's YouTube channel.
