Glenn: The things that are going on in our country are impeachable offenses

The establishment-backed Thom Tillis emerged victorious in yesterday’s Republican primary in North Carolina. Glenn had favored the FreedomWorks and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) endorsed Greg Brannon in the race. Tillis will now face incumbent Senator Kay Hagen (D-NC) in the November’s general election. On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the establishment GOP’s victory in the state and reflected on the state of the Republican Party as it relates to congressional action and the future.

“So last night wouldn't be exactly what I would call a banner night for the TEA Party,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “[Matt] Bevin [in Kentucky] is next. Now they're going to target Bevin… You put money into the GOP. And what are they doing? ‘Mitch McConnell is the guy.’ Oh my gosh, I have never felt more betrayed in my life.”

Earlier this week, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) appointed Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to head a select committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

“With four of our countrymen killed at the hands of terrorists, the American people want answers, accountability, and justice,” Boehner said. “Trey Gowdy is as dogged, focused and serious-minded as they come. His background as a federal prosecutor and his zeal for the truth make him the ideal person to lead this panel. I know he shares my commitment to get to the bottom of this tragedy and will not tolerate any stonewalling from the Obama Administration.”

Gowdy was first elected to Congress in 2010, and he has made a name for himself for not shying away from asking tough questions and getting to the bottom of the issues. For those who would truly like to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi that fateful night, Gowdy is a great pick. But Glenn believes that his selection could turn out to be a setup.

“I'm telling you, Trey Gowdy is in trouble. And here's why I say this. Trey Gowdy was selected to run the Benghazi hearings for what reason? Why would John Boehner pick Trey Gowdy,” Glenn asked. “May I give you a hypothesis? I think John Boehner is doing it because it's a win-win situation for John Boehner.”

The way Glenn sees it, these investigations will surely reveal crimes and cover ups that should come with severe punishment.

“The things that are going on in you're country are impeachable offenses,” Glenn said. “This is not Monica Lewinsky… This is dangerous, impeachable stuff that we're talking about… But nobody wants to do that… The American people don't have the stomach for it… The people in Washington don't have the stomach for it.”

So what will happen?

“Trey Gowdy is going to be the guy who's leading this investigation, and he is going to go out like a pit bull, and he's going to dig stuff up. And what did the White House already say? ‘This is an illegitimate investigation.’ ‘We're totally fine with talking to somebody who's reasonable, but he's not even reasonable.’ Well, hang on just a second. Isn't that what John McCain said about Ted Cruz [during the government shutdown],” Glenn asked. “The Republicans put Trey Gowdy in charge because… once this investigation starts to really dig things up, and the machinery turns on, and it needs somebody to grind, it won't grind the GOP. It will grind the TEA Party. You mark my words: That's what's coming. That's why [Boehner] did it.”

The GOP has proven it is not going to stand up for the TEA Party or the more conservative elements of the Republican Party. Glenn believes they have successfully painted the TEA Party into a corner, but this is not the time to compromise on principles.

"The GOP is not even standing for us. We're alone… I've got to change my approach. We have to change our language. We have to go in a different direction because they've painted us in this corner, and they are very effective. We cannot compromise our principles. We cannot compromise what we believe in. But we can't play the game that they have been playing,” Glenn concluded. “It only gets worse from here. I ask you to reflect. Think back in the last 18 months how many things have changed. How bad are things today compared to where they were 18 months ago… Where do you think we are in 18 months from now – especially if the GOP has the reins off them? Holy cow. Change your thinking. Change the world.”

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."
