‘Not another dime’: Glenn reacts to Obama’s request for more money to quell border crisis

Editor's Note: President Obama has since asked Congress for $3.7 billion to help cover the cost associated with detaining, caring for, and returning the influx of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children who have entered the U.S. in recent months. Get all the details via the Associated Press HERE.

Original story below:

President Obama is preparing to ask Congress for an additional $2 billion to deal with “humanitarian crisis” that will see some 60,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant children cross the southern border this year alone. Meanwhile, Obama is not paying a visit to any of the border patrol outposts that have been overrun as a result of the influx in crossings even though he will be in Texas for fundraising events this week. On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the latest insanity as he explained why not another dollar should be squandered.

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

I’m glad to be back from vacation, but not glad to be looking at the news again… Let's talk about the border in different terms. These people who are turning the buses away in California – I don't know anything about them. I don't like the fact that people are now starting to form militias. I think that's a really colossally bad idea. But I understand your frustration, the people who are turning the buses away. I don't think that's necessarily a bad idea. However, I do think that people need to look at what they're doing and how they're doing it.

See, none of us are PR people. We're just getting the job done. And we don't really understand how powerful the media is, and how you're going to be painted. And I urge the people in any town, what you're seeing happening right now is what's called the ‘Bubba effect.’ We said this would happen, and I didn't know what the topic would be. I think you're seeing the beginning of it now. You're seeing people who, justifiably, are standing up.

These people say the border is more secure than ever. Is it? If fences don't work how come there are fences around the White House? How come there are gates? How come there is security? How come there are front doors on the White House? Because there is something valuable inside, and so we ask that you come through a security gate. We ask that you do that. If gates and fences don't work, then I demand that the gates around our airport be taken down, our fences be taken down, because they're apparently not worth anything. They don't do anything anyway.’ If someone is going to come in, they're going to come in anyway.’ Well then why do we have the gates and the fences around the airport?

I demand to know: If gates and security don't work, then why do I have to go through a metal detector any time I go in through a federal building? How come I have to present ID whenever I'm buying alcohol? These things do work, and everybody in the world knows it. You're paying for Homeland Security. You're paying for a border fence. You're paying for the border guards. You are paying for the detention centers. You are paying a personal cost in your hospitals. You're paying a personal cost when the hospital is overrun by illegal aliens who have no insurance and are coming here to have their babies and everything else. What happens is you pay a real cost. If you are sick, you're getting diminished care because we are having to pay for people who are not paying into the system at all.

You are paying a real cost with your children… There's a town in North Carolina that the kids now speak Spanish. There are more Spanish speaking kids than there are English speaking kids. Well, that's because the federal government has been busing people in. Well I've got news for you, that fundamentally changes the culture of my town. It now has to change the teachers. I have to change the way they think. If I like my school, they have fundamentally changed it because now it will not work the way it worked when everybody was speaking English. That is not judgment on the people that don't speak English. It is an excoriation of the United States government failing to do its most basic duty.

And so people are saying to themselves, ‘Well, what do I do?’ They don't hate the people who are coming from Guatemala. How can you possibly hate somebody? How can you possibly hate somebody that is coming from a war torn country? We are the ‘give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free.’ That's who we are. We've always been that people. We are always the ‘bring the boat’ people.

The people of Honduras, why they're coming here? Do you know why that country is ripped apart? Because there was a coupe that our President refused to denounce. There was a coup that happened last year. The entire world said it was a coup, but we would not say it was a coup. We stood with the people that took over that country… I think it was 43 countries went to observe these elections, and 42 of them said, ‘This was totally criminal. This was not a fair election.’ The one country that said, ‘No, it looked good to us, the United States of America.’

Well, what's happened since? Fourteen members of the press have been killed. 35 or 37 of the opposition leaders have been killed or, more or less, disappeared since the election. Why do you think these parents are sending their kids here. And once again it is because the United States is medaling in other people's business. We are medaling in their business. We're picking and choosing again. We've done this to all of South America. Why do you think they're in such poverty? Because we have chosen their leaders for them for far too long.

Our arrogance is beyond recognition. And so you're sitting in a town in California or Texas or anyplace else and you're thinking to yourself, ‘What do I do? They're not coming into my town. I don't hate these people. I understand, but they have to understand the United States government is crippling my town. It is their children versus my children. And I want to take care of everybody's children. I will take care of these children. But they are not to stay here. They are to go back home.’

What do you think is happening on the border while we're all paying attention to this? I have not heard this anywhere. Is anybody talking about this besides TheBlaze? What is being smuggled or who is being smuggled into our country while we pay attention to the kids? Watch the other hand. What else is happening at the border? And they're talking about comprehensive immigration reform. Nobody is even willing to address the problem. And the problem is: The President of the United States, God bless him, is coming to Texas, and he will not go to the border. He will not meet with the governor of this state. This is worse than George Bush's Katrina. George Bush was actually trying to send help. He got in a plane and flew over the devastation and looked at it from the air. At least the man looked at it. At least the man was on the phone with the local authorities and with the governor every single day – sometimes many times a day.

So here is a situation where people are seeing this. And it has nothing to do with the kids. It has nothing to do with anything other than our government becoming lawless. And these poor people look at what we're trapping them into. We are trapping them into another country that is becoming lawless. They are trying to escape lawlessness.

My great uncle, Uncle Leo, he's an Italian. When the war broke out, they didn't know how it was going to end. And so the family took all their money – not just his family, the entire family took all of their money, and they sent Leo to the United States. Leo, you go, because we don't know what's going to happen to us. The family has to go on. Families have done that, as many of our own families have done that. That's what's happening at the border.

These countries are in peril. There is chaos and there is evil, and our government has supported it. And now they're coming here. So we have no malice toward any of these people, except those that wish us ill. I understand why a parent would do that. I thank God I can't relate to that because my family has never been in that much jeopardy. But I understand.

What I don't understand is the United States government not doing its job and that's why people are standing up at the border. That's why people are standing up in their hometowns and stopping these buses. But I want to talk to you about the right way to do it and the wrong way to do it. I understand why you want to do it. You're now being asked today for an additional $2 billion. For what? So you can feed people? So you can house people? So you can ship them to our cities and you can cripple our cities? No.

There is a better way. There is a better solution. But it requires people on all sides to come together and say, ‘Okay, let's just talk about the truth here.’ We have to take care of people, but the last thing I want to do is spend more money through the federal government – give them a dollar so they can take 30 cents on that dollar and spend it the way they want to spend it. Let's take care of this crisis ourselves while holding the feet to the fire.

Not another dime.

What have you done? You've lied to us every step of the way. No. We will take care of the humanitarian crisis, while we demand that you take care of the border crisis. It's corruption. And we are feeding it by sending them money every month, every two weeks in our check. We're feeding their corruption. Enough is enough.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...
