Glenn is turning liberal! Panic!

By Stu Burguiere

Earlier this year, within one month or so, Glenn was treated with all three of these complaints:

1) He was "too Republican." (He said something moderately nice about Rick Perry.)

2) He "isn’t Republican enough." (His CPAC speech criticized Republicans for not sticking to their conservative values.)

3) He’s "turning liberal." (In a USA Weekend magazine interview, Glenn revealed that he has begun to believe in global warming.)

This proves Glenn is a plant! He doesn’t believe anything he says! He’s just complaining about the President 20 hours a week with the grand scheme of eventually endorsing him in 2012!! Bilderbergs!

Putting aside how stupid you’d have to be to believe that Glenn is liberal, let’s focus on how poorly researched the global warming argument is. To do this, let’s rebuild our oh-so-highly-damaged conservative street-cred by bashing the liberal magazine Mother Jones.

Now, there is very little benefit to Mother Jones to paint Glenn as a liberal, so I guess they can be excused for not putting their full research team on this one. Their claim, made alongside poorly researched conservative sources, is that Glenn has flip-flopped and now says he believes in global warming. This, they assume, is in an effort to win over the press (or something). The proof? Glenn said he believes the Earth has warmed, and that it is possible man had something to do with it. (Scandal!!!)

Mother Jones pulls out these nuggets of devastating evidence illustrating Glenn’s wild swings in opinion...like "Not long ago [Glenn] touted the global warming chapter of his An Inconvenient Book as "kryptonite against your Gore-worshiping psycho friends.’"

It’s one thing to not know all of Glenn’s positions—I get that it’s not your top priority—but shouldn’t you be sort of aware of what is written in the chapter of the book you’re specifically referring to? Glenn even laid it out in some easy-to-swallow numbered statements in An Inconvenient Book:

1. Yes, I think the globe has warmed a bit! Approximately 0.74 degree Celsius (+/- 0.18 degree) in the last 100 years. (0.74 +/- 0.18? Isn’t that a 24 percent margin of error?)

2. Yes, I think that man might be responsible for some part of that warming, although, I’m not 100 percent convinced of how much (126 percent margin of error).

3. I believe that natural changes are also playing a part in the warming and that the only thing constant about the climate is change.

4. I believe that we don’t fully understand the climate yet, and we must be careful until we do.

5. I don’t believe that so-called solutions, such as the Kyoto Protocol, are the answer for a myriad of reasons (see No. 4 above).

6. I believe that science, governments, and the media must stop shutting down dissenting views.

7. Because I live in the Northeast, I would like approximately 30 degrees of global warming in the winter, followed by a 10-degree global cooling in the summer. A gentle global breeze would be nice, too.

These are Glenn’s longstanding positions—as laid out on page 4 of a No. 1 New York Times bestseller. They are not liberal or conservative positions. They are scientific ones, consistent with essentially every skeptical scientist that Al Gore calls a flat-earther. The Earth has warmed a little, and man may have a small part in it. However, it’s not as large as alarmists say it is, and it doesn’t lead to never-ending catastrophe.

A couple high-profile examples:

Richard Lindzen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology: "We are quite confident (1) that global mean temperature is about 0.5° C higher than it was a century ago…[and] CO2 is a greenhouse gas whose increase is likely to warm the Earth (one of many, the most important being water vapor and clouds)."

Roy Spencer, principal research scientist, University of Alabama in Huntsville (a.k.a. Rush Limbaugh’s official climatologist): "most of the climate change we have observed is natural, and that mankind’s role is relatively minor." (Note that he doesn’t say "mankind’s role is non-existent.")

Back to Mother Jones’ devastating "evidence":

And in May 2007 [Glenn] hosted an hourlong television special, Exposed: The Climate of Fear, featuring an all-star lineup of climate change denialists and promising the ‘other side of the climate debate that you don’t hear anywhere.’

Of course, if Mother Jones had bothered to watch the actual special they would have seen - in the intro to the first segment of that special - "I want to start with what we do know. The globe is getting warmer. In fact, it’s warmed about 0.7 degrees Celsius over the last 100 years." This occurred 19 seconds into Glenn’s opening monologue of the special.

The story here is pretty simple. Glenn has said consistently for years that the globe has warmed a small amount, and while it is possible part of that is from man, the bulk is likely natural. However, the larger point is that we don’t understand the climate as well as we should to spend trillions of dollars trying to fix problems that aren’t as significant as predicted. If anything, I’d guess Glenn has grown a bit more skeptical over the past year due to the Climategate-esque scandals, not less.

But why let 19 seconds of video and/or one-third of a page of print get in the way of a good story?

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.
