Glenn: If we want the government to do less, we must do more

On Saturday, Glenn and Mercury One traveled to the border town of McAllen, Texas to distribute some $2 million worth of aid to local charities and churches. What Glenn saw that day was truly profound, and it caused him to question much of what is being reported when it comes to the so-called humanitarian crisis on our border. On radio this morning, Glenn explained the work of private charities in the region and explained why we must not forget that in order for the government to do less, the American people must do more.

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

Catholic Charities is doing a really great job. Sister Norma Pimentel (executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley) is doing a great job. She's not somebody I agreed with on the border – by any stretch of the imagination – but she is a good-hearted woman. And as she took us into the medical facility the Catholic Church has brought in and the town of McAllen is helping pay for and private donations are paying for. Private doctors are volunteering their time. I met a doctor from San Antonio who's coming out just on the weekends to help. Nurses are doing the same thing.

She showed us the kitchens where they're feeding some of these people. She said, ‘We have to feed them only soup because they can't handle anything.’ Do you remember when the story first came out that probably pissed you off? ‘Oh, yeah, and now they're coming over and they don't like our food. They're complaining about the food.’ No, they're not complaining about the food. Why was that story written that way? They're not complaining about the food. Their bodies can't handle the food. Most of them have been on the road for at least 30 days. They haven't had any real food. It's just like the concentration camps. You can't just open up the doors and say, ‘Okay, everybody have sandwiches.’

She said, ‘We're feeding them soup. But a couple of the women, they've come and the doctors will examine them. They've needed IV bags.’ And that's when I said to this woman – who's very kind and compassionate, big-hearted – ‘Hang on, Sister Norma, just a second here. They're coming to you after being dropped off at the bus depot. They're coming to you after a week at the FEMA detention center. How is it they still can't handle any food? How is it that they are leaving there dehydrated, and you are giving them vaccinations and shots?’ And I think because she didn't want any controversy, she said, ‘Well, the women probably didn't say anything at the detention center.’ And I didn't get into an argument with her. And I don't want to put words in her mouth that she did not say. But I have a hard time understanding how the Catholic Church is asking these questions. How the Catholic Church has a volunteer doctor who is examining people and saying, ‘You need IV you're dehydrated.’ And how our federal government isn't doing that.

This is the answer why you're not seeing any pictures of this humanitarian crisis because it is the Superdome in several locations. You need to understand and you need to be the voice that tells people, ‘Don't close your heart because of those people who lied about you after Hurricane Katrina. Because there is real need.’ The press must demand to be let in. The only way to stop this is through transparency. We are breaking up families.

Let me tell you something. We are putting traumatized people on a bus and just dropping them off at the Greyhound bus depot. Traumatized people, traumatized children, who may never recover. And how much will they cost us later if you want to boil it down to that? How much will they cost us later? How much damage has been done to these children by the drug lords, by their own families, by the trip? And then by the federal government saying, ‘No hugs. no touching’ and break the family up again and separate them by age. It's a nightmare. We are so much better than this. And this part of it has nothing to do with justice. This has everything to do with mercy. Justice must be done. We must close our border. We must stop this insanity. We are empowering all of the bad people. We are destroying people. It must end now.

But while we declare that, we have got to get our churches involved. We have got to get people who actually care. The government has no heart. It wasn't designed to have a heart. You have the heart. Our churches have the heart. Our relief organizations – they have the heart. They should be the ones doing this. If you want the government to do less, then we must do more. You know the government has no heart. You know your church does have a heart. Find these FEMA centers. Picket, protest, call, do whatever you have to do. Forget about the buses coming in to your towns for a second. Get into those shelters and help these children. Help them. They are alone. They are afraid. They're traumatized. And our government is aiding in the trauma.

Did Biden just let slip that record-high gas prices were PLANNED?

President Joe Biden on Monday appeared to praise record-high gas prices, saying it's all part of an “incredible transition” that will make America and the world better off.

“When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden explained during a joint press conference with Japan Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo.

Twitter wasn't buying Biden's most recent bunch of malarkey:





Glenn Beck has long been warning that progressive policies and regulations intended to cripple the fossil fuel industry would lead to skyrocketing oil and gas prices — and it's all by design. Back in 2008, President Barack Obama all but admitted as much when he said energy costs would "necessarily skyrocket” under his cap-and-trade plan.

On a recent episode of BlazeTV's "Glenn Beck Program," Glenn explained why he believes the current oil and gas catastrophe is all "part of the plan," as leftists continue to push their radical ESG agenda.

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.
