Glenn's latest toy? An actual Jihadist rocket

After an eventful journey to East Jerusalem last night, Glenn chose to visit a town near the border of Gaza, Sderot, this morning. Though it might not have been the safest trip for a pro-Israel American media personality, it proved to be an incredible experience that also resulted in a special gift, as Glenn described on radio.

“I got up bright and early (this morning) and nobody surprisingly wanted to go with me to (the border of) Gaza,” Glenn said. “So we go to (the border of) Gaza, and it was nice. It was beautiful, especially this time of year.”

The small town, Sderot, Glenn visited has had about 8,000 rockets hit it in the past few years, and Glenn was gifted one to take with him.

GLENN: I was given a rocket. It was nice. Not everybody gets a rocket.

PAT: So you got a Kasam rocket that was shot yesterday.

GLENN: Yesterday. Yeah, it landed yesterday.

The situation is in this town requires that bomb shelters be located no more than 15 seconds away from any location.

A local basketball court has a bomb shelter in each corner “because you only have 15 seconds to get into a bomb shelter. When they see an RPG go off or a Kasam missile go off you only have 15 seconds for survival. So nobody can be any farther away than 15 seconds,” Glenn said. “What look like bus stops are not bus stops… It's crazy.”

Glenn was also able to tour a local school with the town’s mayor, which he described as “a bunker.”

“The school is a bunker. The school is completely bomb proof. It has ballistic windows in it. You can hit it with a five -- what five kilogram bomb or something. A rocket can hit the windows and not go through it. And the alarms, the sirens go off. Sometimes during a school -- average school day, average is about two times a day and as many as 50 times a day.”

The mayor described to Glenn how a recent UN inspection resulted in very little for the ravaged town.

“I'm talking to the mayor of this town, who is an amazingly brave man,” Glenn recounted. “And he says: We just had a UN human rights inspector come to see the human rights. I don't know who this person, how they were even thinking, but they thought everything was fine. Now, I'm telling you that when you see this town… you won't believe it.”

The mayor shared with Glenn the story of when the inspector visited the school and unable to grasp the situation. After walking into one of the classrooms that looks more like a bomb shelter than anything else, the mayor followed her in and slammed the door behind him. Half of the children broke out in tears in fear that it was a bomb.

“Now, you want to talk about courage. People said to me originally: Why are you doing Restoring Courage, what are you planning on restoring to the Israelis, I don't plan on restoring anything to the Israelis, they get it,” Glenn said.

“Enough is enough,” he continued. “If somebody was launching missiles into our country, we wouldn't be silent. Enough is enough.”

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
