Glenn: Energy crisis will be FATAL & the left DOESN’T CARE?

The far-left has HIDDEN its disastrous energy policies within the Inflation Reduction Act, Glenn says, and this energy crisis WILL be fatal to people all around the world. But the left doesn’t seem to care. In this clip, Glenn explains some of the catastrophic consequences from their energy programs that may be coming soon (he also details MUCH more on this topic in his latest Glenn TV Wednesday Night Special, which is available now on YouTube and on Also, Glenn previews an upcoming podcast episode with Governor Ron DeSantis, who spoke about energy policies as well (catch the full interview on YouTube on Saturday).

GLENN: Hey. A power shortage.

We've been talking about this. Existing power plants, are projected to retire at a faster pace than installations of new units. This is from the epic times. Dependence on renewable projects are threatening widespread power shortages, according to a new report by the Regional Power Transmission Company, PJM.

They are going to be -- they are going to be really, really short on power soon.

And we kind of told you why that is happening. We -- I think broke some news. I don't know of anybody else who has reported on this.

But, you know, there's got to be somebody out there, that found this, besides us.

But the -- the Inflation Reduction Act, is nothing but a Trojan horse. And that is closing down our power plants. These companies are given billions of dollars. Your money. Billions of dollars. To shut down the operating coal-fired plants. And then build something else.

But what makes this really, really insidious. Is to get all of the money, you have to destroy or dismantle your power plant.

So power plants are going up for sale.

And some of them are selling dirt cheap.

These things take years to build. If not a decade.

And they cost billions of dollars. And they're being sold for scrap metal. That's good, huh?

Isn't that good?

And so I told you, there is a way you can do help. It is in the form of a bill, that was just passed in Utah. They're working on a similar one in West Virginia.

I urge you to ever to read all about it. Watch the TV show from last night. My Wednesday night special, on Blaze TV. Or listen to the first hour of today's podcast.

Because I outline exactly what is goggle. And this is -- this is a big one. There's lots of things we can pay attention to. This one, literally is lights out, if we don't -- if we don't act on this.

In it -- in the bill, you will see, that they don't just want to encourage new energy.

They are blocking the path, by destroying our power plants.

No one in their right mind. Even if you are agreeing, no one in their right mind, that cares about society, cares about our country, cares about human lives, nobody goes after all of the oil, all of the gas, and then shuts down operating coal fire plants, to replace it with wind and solar. You will have brownouts and blackouts.

People will die. People will die because of this.
And when you see your own government doing it to you, and without your permission.

We didn't have a big debate on this. In fact, what little debate we had, was in the build bang better bill. And in the green new deal. And because we did have a little bit of debate on that. And there was some sunshine on that. We all said no. And they knew they couldn't pass it. So they had to hide it in the Inflation Reduction Act.

That's where this came from. This is the Green New Deal, and Build Back Better.

And just relabel the Inflation Reduction Act.

If these people will do this to their own country and their own people, do you really have a hard time, Stu, thinking that these people would sabotage the European and Russian pipeline for gas?

I mean --

STU: No. Right. It's -- they're doing it, as part of public policy to their own people. Why would they care about another country?

GLENN: Right.

STU: We don't know for sure.

GLENN: No. We don't. We don't.

We have no idea, who did it.

There's some credible evidence that we did it.

And then the New York Times is coming out saying, it was a pro-Ukrainian group, that did it.

STU: No one is saying, what they said initially, by the way, which is that the Russians did it.

Which, of course, didn't make sense at the beginning.

GLENN: Right. Right.

So it was some shady group or the United States. That's really what it's down to.

And I wouldn't doubt if the United States trained or supported. Or some of the money that we just sent over there, just kind of disappeared. And ended up in the pockets of some oligarch. Who funded it. So we didn't have to directly fund it.

But the people that are running the world right now. Don't have a problem with people dying.

They don't have a problem. If they can get their stuff passed through, they have such a utopian view, that it's going to be great for all mankind, some day.

And they don't mind, if people die along the way.

STU: Bigger if I need to fry.

GLENN: Got to crack a few eggs. You know.

STU: It really does seem like that's part of the goal. Or at least a -- a -- an acceptable speed bump on the way to the goal.

GLENN: Sure. Sure.

Let me -- let me play a couple of things.

This is from the podcast, that airs, beginning today, on Blaze TV. And will come out Saturday. Let me play the one on -- where is it? The energy. Cut 17. Here is DeSantis on energy destruction.

What we're talking about.

VOICE: How stupid can you be to try to neutral our own ability to reduce our own energy.

GLENN: But they're doing it.

VOICE: No. I know. But how does it make our country stronger to be relying on.

GLENN: It doesn't.

VOICE: And here's the thing: Biden will not want it done here. He'll go beg Maduro for oil. He'll go beg other people for oil.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah.

VOICE: You know, everything we produce in terms of fossil fuels, it's done so much cleaner here than it is in these other countries. Are you kidding me?

So it's all -- it's all for them to exert more control over us. That's what this is all about. And the good thing about it, is some of this stuff, I think can be remedied through changing some of the bureaucratic rules. There's a lot of people out there in these industries, they really want to get going again. But they just can't get under the current circumstances.

GLENN: Texas is thinking about making it -- their own bank just for energy.

VOICE: Yeah, and Florida, look, I have -- private-owned investor facilities.

They have to make money.

And I have some that are doing more solar. We don't have subsidies, anything like that. They're doing it. It's economical in certain situations. Fine. Yeah. Fine.

GLENN: I have solar on my house.

Don't force me to do it.

VOICE: Here the thing: When I had Hurricane Ian come through. You know, we had millions of people knocked out of power. We had 52,000 linemen get it restored.

Largest restoration, fastest in history.

I needed oil and gas. You know, I just -- wasn't -- the wind and solar. We're not going to get those people going again. You had the habit. We actually had some people who had the electric cars. And some of them were catching on fire. Because of the saltwater and all that stuff.

But if you can't charge it, you're having that tank of gas in your truck or your car, can mean everything. So we are not going to be without fossil fuels in our lifetime.

And if we try to go without fossil fuels in our lifetime, you will see the standard of living plummet. You will see our security plummet, and it will be a disaster.

GLENN: We will be Venezuela.

Let me play -- let me play one more thing. Because what I said, a minute ago. That they don't have a problem with people dying. Is a pretty horrible charge to make on somebody.

But listen to what he talked about, when he said, I was talking to -- stop, please.

When we were talking about Dr. Burkes (phonetic). Remember Dr. Burkes? COVID?

Listen to what he says. Cut 13.

You talk about this in the book, with Burkes, and it's a little terrifying, when she said, well, this is just our kind of little science experiment.

VOICE: Very much so.

GLENN: Can you tell that story?

VOICE: So the White House task force was hammering me for the first really thee months, because they wanted me to be clamping down harder.

And, you know, she -- so I called, Deborah, tell me when in American history, has this been done. And what were the results?

Because I kind of feel like, we're flying blind here.

We may be doing things that may be damaging.

She said, it's kind of our own science experiment, that we're doing in real time.

And that didn't sit well with me. You're a citizen of a republic. You're not a Guinea pig.


VOICE: And so I think that -- there's a whole bunch of other things that I talked about in the book.

You remember the George Floyd riots, the epidemiologist.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

VOICE: Because people were saying, you've been telling people, you have to stay in your home. And like in Florida, they were killing us. Even in those early days, you know, when we were following federal government guidelines loosely.

But we were following some. We were playing golf. I mean, the villages, they're setting record for golf.

People are boding all this stuff. They were so mad at Florida for doing that. People on the beach. All that stuff.

That was their position. You are killing people, if you leave your house. So then all these people -- thousands of people are protesting.

Two thousand of these epidemiologists write a letter saying, we do not condemn these protests because of COVID. Indeed, we think they're vital for public health, because they're fighting --

GLENN: Right. It's a bigger disease than COVID.

STEVE: Exactly. So that's when I knew.

This public health -- this public health clan of people, they are sing. I mean, they are -- they are ideological captured, and these are not people that should be anywhere near the levers of power. So I basically, from that point on, I would exclusively listen to a very handful of people.

You know, Bhattacharya from Stanford. Martin Kulldorff from Harvard. Scott Atlas. Sunetra Gupta from Oxford.

Then my Surgeon General, Jill Lattapo, we brought in from UCLA. Great.


Why a Trump indictment would make America a BANANA REPUBLIC

What is the far-left accusing Donald Trump of NOW? And will the former president truly be indicted? If so, what does this mean for America’s future? Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus and author of ‘Get Trump,’ joins Glenn to explain why this latest move from the far-left is ‘destroying the rule of law in America.’ He explains the exact charges the left intends to pit against Trump this time around, and why — if they’re successful — it could send our nation towards becoming a banana republic…


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Mr. Alan Dershowitz. How are you, sir?

ALAN: I am doing great. I wish the country were doing great. I think the impending prosecution of Donald Trump will destroy the rule of law, in America. Which is why I wrote my book, get Trump.

Because that's what they're doing. They're focusing on a person rather than a crime.

You know, the Torah, the Bible one, don't take bribes. That's obvious.

The other is do not recognize faces. Do not do justice based on who the person is. That's a problems in the Bible. That's a prohibition in the constitutionally. it's a prohibition into the rule of law.

And yet, the district attorney of Manhattan, ignoring previous district attorneys. Ignoring the US attorney's office. The Justice Department. Is going after a made-up crime. A crime that does not exist. It's part of the bet Trump.

And if you want to protest get Trump. Michael get Trump.

That will send a message, that will approve of that.

GLENN: Which a few years ago, it would have happened. But I don't think they're going to do it this time. Because we know this federal government. This Justice Department, does not protect the lawful gathering of American citizens to speak their voice.

We also are concerned about, is that an FBI guy, who is trying to get the crowd all whipped up into a frenzy?

I mean, we don't believe our rights are protected as an average citizen anymore. That's a frightening place to be in America.

ALAN: And it's not only the Justice Department. It's the New York City the attorney general of New York ran on the campaign of get Trump. That's where I I got the title of my book from. Her campaign, get Trump. Promise to get Trump no matter what. Constitutionally be damned. The Bill of Rights be damned. get Trump. That's the most important thing, to stop him from realizing. Of course, the irony is constitutionally provides for only, you know, a hand handful for bases for running. You have to be against the North.

And you have to have been been born in America. And he satisfies all of that criteria. So stibbling run.

And this may backfire on Democrats who are abusing the law to get Trump.

And I hope that does. And I hope that maybe the district attorney will listen to reason. And will not indict him.

You know, justice Jackson once said, that any prosecutor can rummage among the hundreds of statutes that you have. And try to find something against anybody. Not just Trump. Not just Hillary Clinton.

But you and me. And your uncle Charlie and grandson. They can find something. And if this prosecution is allowed to go forward, and culminate in the conviction. It will mean that they will start making crimes up against the average person, who they don't like.

GLENN: Can you -- can you take us through this at all, Alan.

Because people will say, okay. I don't think you should be paying hush money. Is that illegal? What charges are they so that we don't

ALAN: Sure. It's never been done before, number one. So they're charging him with a misdemeanor. Misdemeanor six years ago. They are trying to turn the misdemeanor into a felony, by saying that the reason he paid, quote, hush money. It wasn't hush money. But the reason he settled the case was to help his campaign, rather than to avoid embarrassment with his wife and his family. his children, et cetera.

They're not going to be able to a prosecutor can a little grandly Jill to indict a ham sandwich.

And in New York, you can do probably get a petit jury to change sandwich, as long as his name is Trump.

So there is a possibility that he will get indicted and get convicted. I think it will reverse on appeal. in making up crimes. This is making up crime.

So they say that he paid the hush money, in order to help his campaign. And therefore, the payment was a campaign contribution.

It's never been done before. They tried it once before, on candidate Edwards. And it was a much, much stronger case. And, of course, they lost in front of a jury.

But it's never been tried since. And that was a federal crime.

This is a state crime. And it's a shame that a district attorney would abuse justice so greatly. And it endangers justice for all of us.

GLENN: So, Alan, where is anyone?

When we get to a place to where we're taking out our opponents.

I mean, I spoke to Mike Lee about this. With Hillary Clinton. And what was going on with Hillary Clinton. And he said, Glenn, once you start going after an opponent, you become a banana republic, the republican is just over.
because the retribution. The other side will say, oh, we're playing that? once said, well, my friends everything. For my enemies, the law. The law.

And that's what will happen.

And senator Lee is right. Senator Lee's father is a good friend of mine. We clerked technology on the United States Supreme Court. And Lee is a Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton guy. And he's right, we don't want to be a banana republic on either side.

GLENN: So my question to you is: Where are the classical liberals?

Where are the people that don't like Donald Trump? But will stand up and say, this is about principle here?

SPEAKER ONE: Well, you're talking to them. I'm the last standing, oh, I may have a handful of colleagues.

But where are the civil liberties union people?

Where are people who are supposed to care more about our liberty than they do about partisan politics?

They have disappeared. They're not there.

And that's not why I'm the one writing the books now. Get Trump. I'm the one who is trying as a liberal Democrat. As I said over and over again.

I voted for Trump twice. I have a constitutional right to vote and don't stop me from doing that. Don't stop me from making the disquisition run, formal president.

That is banana republic. And we're moving toward that. And it has to stop. And there's no mechanism.

You know, in California, there was a mechanism. You could withdraw and remove the district attorney. And if New York had a Republican attorney, they would be removing the district attorney.

But the democratic and no recall improvements district attorney gets his way. And there will probably be an indictment. I don't know if it will be tomorrow or not. I don't know if they'll do a pepper strengthen Donald Trump's base. People will be so angry with them. I've got call you wills from people. look, we're oops. We were plan oops we were planning to vote for Nikki Haley. But we'll vote for Trump. Because that's the and weaponization of the law.

You know, I have a better form of protest. Buy my book. Then you don't have to vote for Trump.

But it is -- it will backfire. Now, will it backfire in New York?

Probably not. he gets his 15 minutes of fame.

Even if it's reversed on appeal. He'll say, oh, that's not my fault.

I indicted him. I convicted him. Vote for me. We're the only country, did you know this, the only country in the western hemisphere? The only country among Democrats that elect prosecutors. Elect prosecutors. And every other country, they are civil service jobs.

And they are not subject to -- for the whims of political fortunes.

But we have elected prosecutors. And prosecutors prosecute people, based on how much good it will do them in the next election. And there's something very wrong with that.

GLENN: Well, the whole system, I've said, have you tried plugging it back in to factory is that we told them to happen. It is so dirty all the way through.

So -- so, Alan, what should the -- besides biker book, what should the American people be doing right now?

ALAN: Well, we should be protesting. I don't call for people going out on the streets. But I do call for people to write to their senators and congressmen, the New York authorities, evangelizing shows like yours, which have a big impact on national opinion. And making sure that we're not silent about this. We have to speakable out. And your message is as clear as can be. Where are the civilian Libertarians? Where are the people saying, look, I'm in favor of Biden. I will vote for him.

I don't like Trump. But I don't like the way he's

SPEAKER SEVEN: That's the American way. The American way is to protest. for a redress of grievances.

That's in the First Amendment.

And we have to all take advantage of that. We do have a double standard of justice in America today.

I'm representing one of the young men on January 6th. He's a law school student. He was denied the opportunity to graduate. Even though he was a top student.

Because he went to the capital, to and then he was waved into the capital by police. We have videotape showing it.

Yet he's problematical formal a felony.

Whereas, the people who destroyed property and hurt people, in various parts of the country, following the George Floyd murder, weren't being prosecuted.

Were they do ways. sole that means no standards.


Swimmer EXPOSES ‘emotional blackmail’ within trans athlete debate

Riley Gaines, former University of Kentucky swimmer and a 12-time NCAA all-American athlete, refuses to stay quiet about transgender athletes competing in women’s sports — no matter how much backlash she may receive. She joins Glenn to detail why ‘people are scared’ to speak out, the ‘emotional blackmail’ some athletes receive when they do, and why allowing trans athlete to compete in women’s sports creates a dangerous ‘slippery slope.’ Plus, Gaines gives invaluable advice to those who may be in a similar situation she was once in, but who may be afraid to take a stand and speak the truth…


Why the 'Anti-Woke Crusader' Is Running for President | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 177

America is suffering from a national identity crisis, and Vivek Ramaswamy has ideas about how to save it. He recently announced his bid for the 2024 presidential election as a Republican, which left many asking why the “Anti-Woke Crusader” decided it’s time to run for the nation’s top office. But he’s no stranger to the job of CEO, and he tells Glenn that’s exactly how he’d run the country. Americans are hungry for meaning, faith, and an identity to be proud of. So, Vivek keeps his ideas based on truths: family, God, and citizenship. Vivek sits down to discuss some of the biggest challenges to truth that America is facing, including China, Big Tech, and AI. He wants to replace the World Economic Forum’s “stakeholder capitalism” with “excellence capitalism.” And he believes the best way to accomplish all this is to break from the elites to speak directly to the people. This episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is part of a series leading up to the 2024 election. These interviews come with no agenda. The point is to ask all of the candidates all the questions that people need to ask.


Biden's daughter-in-law Hallie paid CHINESE CASH ... for WHAT?

Records revealed that yet another Biden family member — President Biden's daughter-in-law, Hallie Biden — got cash from a Chinese company back in 2017. But she's not the only one. Glenn asks what she and this other mysterious "Biden" did to get this money and whether it's really just a coincidence that so many Bidens have accepted checks from companies with ties to the Chinese Communist Party. And Glenn also reviews some very sketchy energy stories coming out of not just China, but Ukraine ...
