Typical: Big Government trying to cut off one of the few energy life lines left

With everything going on in the world, it's surprising that our energy costs haven't started to skyrocket. What's saving us from rising costs? Fracking! But, of course, the EPA and big government are doing all they can kill this industry. Surprised? You shouldn't be. Glenn explained on radio this morning.

"I read something amazing last night on why we are paying so little for our energy costs.  With everything that is going on, why has our electricity bill not skyrocketed more than it already has?  The answer is fracking.  Fracking is so incredibly important to the United States of America, especially with everything else that is happening in our country.  When they're taking apart energy left and the right, the only thing that has saved us is natural gas.  The natural gas industry has pulled off a miracle.  You want to talk about divine providence, here it is:  Natural gas and fracking," Glenn said.

"Fracking unleashes natural gas in untold units.  We had no idea how much energy we really sat on.  We all guessed that we were an energy leader in the rest -- for the rest of the world, but it's absolutely true."

Glenn explained that when entrepreneurs first started fracking, they expected to reduce costs by about a third and as a result generate more natural gas that they could sell a lot of for a better price.

"They unleashed much more than they ever thought possible and it made the price of natural gas plummet to where it's almost free.  They can't pump it out of the ground.  They can't get -- they can't afford to do it.  Now these smaller companies are starting to go under because they invested in all of this infrastructure and because the price of natural gas is so low, they can't pay the mortgage payments on all of their infrastructure.  Some of them are going out of business.  Others are just starting to turn everything down, turn the pumps down, because they can't afford to pump it.  And so now our natural gas prices are expected to rise.  They have to," Glenn said.

"Here is American ingenuity and entrepreneurs showing you how to find clean and plentiful energy and to do it not with the government, in spite of the government and look what's happened."

"Now the government, of course, can't help them.  In fact, states are trying to stop fracking.  The EPA is after everybody now.  Anybody who's trying to produce energy, fracking is dangerous.  Is it, really?  Here's the additional problem:  The coal industry, which is -- the Obama administration is trying to put out of business, a lot of them took their coal fire plants and converted them over to natural gas-fired plants, knowing that fracking had just changed the game entirely, but now that natural gas has to necessarily skyrocket, what do we do with the coal fire plants that are no longer coal fire plants, they're natural gas plants?"

Glenn explained that EPA Region 1 Administrator Curt Spalding had even been caught admitting how Obama's policies are killing whole communities!

Spalding was caught on tape saying:

But know right now, we are, we are struggling. We are struggling because we are trying to do our jobs. Lisa Jackson has put forth a very powerful message to the country. Just two days ago, the decision on greenhouse gas performance standard and saying basically gas plants are the performance standard which means if you want to build a coal plant you got a big problem. That was a huge decision. You can’t imagine how tough that was. Because you got to remember if you go to West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and all those places, you have coal communities who depend on coal. And to say that we just think those communities should just go away, we can’t do that. But she had to do what the law and policy suggested. And it’s painful. It’s painful every step of the way.

"I want you to understand what he just said," Glenn said, "He's talking about an actual community, towns.  You just have to go away."

"Yeah, but he's the victim," Pat joked. " I'm destroying your life completely and it really hurts me to do that.  Oh, I'm in pain!  Don't you people understand my pain?!  Yes, you're without a home and a community.  I had to tell you that!  I hurt.  Okay?!"

"This is not just shutting down an industry.  This is stomping out the entire community," Glenn said.

Glenn heavily criticized the media for not covering this story and blamed it on a bias against the rural communities, and warned that if the Obama administration and the EPA are successful at killing energy industries that use fossil fuels, the impact will be irreversible.

"This isn't something like you make this mistake and go, 'Oh, man, we shut down the coal industry.  That was a mistake.  You know what?  Call them back up and tell them we're going to buy some more coal'."

"Wake your neighbors up.  Another four years of this is going to kill us.  It's going to absolutely kill us," he said."

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.
