Billionaire Jon Huntsman has an eye-opening recipe for success

Jon Huntsman Sr.:

I’m grateful to the Lord. I’ll tell you...it’s hard for me to even talk about it, but I’ve always been strong in my faith, and I’ve had faith in other people. And if people know you have faith in them and you can put your arm around them and thank them for what they’re doing and then share your profits with them and share your profits with charity at the same time, it’s a formula for great success.[...]

Once one makes a commitment to charity, the last people in the world who can afford to ever be without are those who are already without. And so as a boy growing up, I knew the feeling of being poor. I lived that. I’d worn those moccasins. My wife and I agreed that if ever we were going to make a commitment, and often commitments have to be made for five or ten years. They’re not just a one-year situation. Many of our commitments were 50 million or 100 million. They were going to different causes, mostly cancer but a lot of other great causes.

So I went to the banks in New York, and I said I really need a high-powered loan. And they said for your business? And I said no, for charity. They said we don’t loan money for charity. Nobody is foolish enough to borrow money so they can give it away. How do you intend to repay us? And I said well, my businesses will grow, and we will flourish, and we will be successful, but you just have to give me time. But I will not let these people down. They’re counting on me for food. They’re counting on me for cancer treatments. They’re counting on us for abused women and children centers. They’re counting on me for 5,000 scholarships to underprivileged kids who, you know, if it hadn’t have been for family, I wouldn’t have been through school.

And so the bankers, they were so astounded that the chairman said I’ll have to think about it, and then he sent the vice-chairman all the way out west to visit with me to try to talk me out of it. And I said don’t you dare talk me out of it. I will pay you back every dime, every penny, but I will not let these charities down. And so [...], it was a great blessing.

All my net worth, absolutely, because I figured that [...] you’re born with not much in life. Most of us don’t have a whole lot when we’re born, and I figured that if I died without a whole lot, I’d break even. That’s a pretty good record. And so it didn’t bother me in the slightest. So we put up our corporate stock. I put up one of my homes. And my wife and children, the bank wouldn’t give me any collateral on those. But it worked out great.

I’m not trying to sound self-serving. [...] All I’m saying is that, you know, whether we’re worth a billion, whether we’re worth a million, whether we’re worth 100,000, whether we’re worth 1,000, it’s what’s in your heart. You know, $100 a month from somebody or $50 a year for people who may be in a less economic bracket, that’s as important to the Lord. It’s important to those people receiving charity as it is for the billionaires and millionaires. In fact, it’s worth more.

I would suggest [..] that there’s probably more money per capita given by the lower income in middle income than these extremely wealthy people who I’ve had the privilege to associate with who don’t give much of anything.

[...]

But anyway, my feeling is, you know, the twinkle in people’s eye and the feelings in their face, the hope in their body that you can give people by lifting their souls and lifting their spirits, it doesn’t cost that much. And besides, what are we going to do with it anyway?

You know, we’ve been blessed. The Lord has blessed us in a way that we can never, ever say thank you.

 

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."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
