Congressman Mike McCaul gives insight on Boston investigation

This morning on the radio program Glenn invited Texas Congressman Mike McCaul on the program to get the latest information on the bombings that took place at the Boston Marathon yesterday. McCaul also serves as the Chair of the Homeland Security Committee and was able to provide Glenn and his radio audience with a clear view of what the facts on the ground are in this on-going investigation.

As of this morning, the perpetrators of the terror attack in Boston are unknown, as is their motive.

"I said yesterday, before the President spoke, it's an act of terrorism. It has all the hallmarks — the simultaneous bombing and a spectacular mass casualty event, which is what they always try to do," McCaul stated about the attacks. "We do know that there was a Saudi individuals who is a person of interest."

McCaul continued, "It's always important in these types of situations — I was a federal prosecutor for awhile — not to jump to conclusions. They're running down every lead they can."

The Congressman went on to explain that there was video surveillance of the area where the bombs went off that authorities are looking at, and they would also have teams reverse engineering the bombs to see what they would be able to conclude from how those were assembled, detonated, etc.

One of the things Glenn was most concerned about was that it's now day two and no images have been released to the public. Recalling what living in New York City was like, Glenn noted that, while Boston isn't nearly as big or heavily surveillance as NYC, how are there no images of such a popular tourist spot?

"Well, they do, and they are look at that," McCaul responded. "I'm hopeful that we're going to get some answers soon."

He also mentioned another report of a "dark skinned" individual with a backpack — appeared to be a foreign national — that was seen and is being investigated.

"Nature abhors a vacuum," Glenn said to the Congressman. He recalled that after Sandy Hook answers were being released almost immediately. The longer that questions go unanswered with this bombing the most questionable everything is going to appear to the public.

McCaul didn't disagree and noted that officials are working hard to bring answers to the public soon. As more information is released describing the bombs used yesterday, they are sounding very similar to IEDs, something the Congressman pointed out they've been very concerned about making their way into the country for quite some time.

"They've been used extensively in Iraq and Afghanistan, and now we're seeing two of them blown up in Boston," he said.

Glenn sent his thoughts and prayers to all of those impacted directly by this horrific attack, as well as the Congressman and other officials working hard to figure out what happened.

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

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.
