Glenn's powerful message to Republican representatives

If you listened to yesterday's radio program, you are aware that Glenn is supporting Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) in his challenge against House Speaker John Boehner for the top spot in Congress.

Despite Glenn's strong feelings for Gohmert's ability to be successful in this role, the mainstream media has failed to agree with Glenn. At the beginning of his radio show, Glenn quoted a new Gallup poll that 60 percent of Republican GOP voters would like Boehner to leave his position. Glenn then decided to send a message to those House Representatives who would be participating in the vote today, saying "If you're putting your money behind John Boehner, you're backing the wrong horse. I don't mean politically speaking. I mean for the sake of the country. What are you there for? For politics or for the state of the country?"

Glenn took the time to say that he does, indeed, relate to the difficult decisions and pressure one in leadership faces on a daily basis. Glenn even listed some of the issues he has faced as a business owner dealing with financial pressures. Despite the pressure though, the key is to not compromise. For Glenn, the realization that he had compromised too much came from his children. Glenn said, "All my kids had to say to me was, 'Oh'. That was it. But it was a condemning, 'Oh'. It was an, 'Oh. You've turned into one of them.' They never said that. They didn't have to. I knew it."

Just as Glenn realized he had strayed from his goals based on his children's judgement of him, those in political power, or in any leadership role, need to take a step back and re-evaulate who they are and what they believe. In a desperate plea to those in Washington, D.C. Glenn left them with some powerful words to consider:

It's time to step back and say, okay, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Who am I really? What is it I really believe in?

See, what happens is, these guys go into Washington and they believe in something. Then they get there and they listen to these consultants. I'm telling you right now, defund the G.O.P. You know what the problem is? The damn consultants that the G.O.P. hires. They're the same people over and over and over and over again. And what happens is, the fresh blood goes in, and they don't know what the hell they're doing. They go in and sit around to all these experts that they've seen on TV forever. They say, listen, kid, you don't understand how this works. I do, I've been here for 25 years.

You need to have the spine in Washington to say, you know what you've been here for 25 years. What have you done for us?

Listen to the rest of Glenn's powerful monologue below:

Below is a rough transcript of this segment:

GLENN: You know, this is why -- you know what -- this is why we don't like talking politics. We've talked about these guys. We believe in these guys. Chris Stewart. I believe in him. Where is he? Jason Chaffetz. Where are you, dude? You're telling me that John Boehner is the future?

If you're putting your money behind John Boehner, you're backing the wrong horse. I don't mean politically speaking. I mean for the sake of the country. What are you there for? For politics or for the state of the country?

Let me tell you something: Let me give a message right directly to those Republicans who are waffling today. Those Republicans who have listened to the pressure.

I run a business. I know pressure. And I'm going to be real honest with you. Have you been to TheBlaze.com lately? TheBlaze.com in the last year has more garbage ads on it than I've ever seen. And I can't take them anymore. The pop-ups and the pop-behinds and everything else. I can't take them. We get complaints. We should get complaints. You should be pissed at those.

Now, here's what happened: Financial pressures start to come in. You start to say, well, we have to take this. Before, you know, you've comprised yourself into a position to where you look like crap. You become everything that you despise. So now you have to go and reset.

So here's the decision I had to make over the summer. I start to get well. I start looking at my company and everything we're doing. And I say, why are we doing this? Why is this happening. This goes against our principles. Why would we do these things? Well, because if we don't do that, then we'll have to do this. Then that will cause this. And that will cause this to happen. Before we know it, we'll be all out of control.

And, quite honestly, when I was not healthy, I was accepting that excuse. You know what changed me? And hear me clearly, Republicans. Because you don't have to be in my business. This is just my way of relating to it. I don't know what your way of relating it is, I bet you there's businesspeople and politicians and moms who find themselves in exactly the same situation, just different circumstance.

Here's what changed it: My children.

Well, dad, how come you're allowing that to happen?

Well, because if I don't do that, then this will happen and this will happen.

All my kids had to say to me was, oh. That was it. But it was a condemning, oh. It was an, oh. You've turned into one of them.

They never said that. They didn't have to. I knew it.

You listen to me, Republicans, you either stand for something or you don't. And just like my situation with all these damn pop-up ads, it will take me a while to clear them all out. It will take me a while because I've made mistakes. Company has made mistakes. It will take a while to clear all this crap out.

Okay. So I take the next eight months, six months, whatever it is, clearing this crap out to reset it to get it right. Or I could just say, well, it will be too much problem. It will solve itself in some way magically, no, it won't. Are you going to be one of those people that are looking at the problems and say, well, I have to work within the system and I have to do -- the system is broken. The system is broken.

And whether that system is in your house, in your business or in Washington, DC, we all know it's broken.

So you're not going to be able to repair this anymore. There's too many patches on this tire. It's time for a new course. It's time to step back and say, okay, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Who am I really? What is it I really believe in?

See, what happens is, these guys go into Washington and they believe in something. Then they get there and they listen to these consultants. I'm telling you right now, defund the G.O.P. You know what the problem is? The damn consultants that the G.O.P. hires. They're the same people over and over and over and over again. And what happens is, the fresh blood goes in, and they don't know what the hell they're doing. They go in and sit around to all these experts that they've seen on TV forever. They say, listen, kid, you don't understand how this works. I do, I've been here for 25 years.

You need to have the spine in Washington to say, you know what you've been here for 25 years. What have you done for us?

Well, we've had a win -- when? Tell me the win for the Constitution. I can tell you the losses for the Constitution. I can tell you we're enslaving our children with this debt. I can tell you right now that there are Americans all across the country that can't afford health insurance anymore.

So don't tell me you've been here for 25 years. You tell me you've been here for 25 minutes. I'm starting to think that you're part of the problem.

I'm begging the people in Washington to hear me clearly.

You think about your children. And if you can explain your vote to your children and say, look, I know that John Boehner is a bad guy. I know he's standing against all the things we're for. I know he's spending us into oblivion. I know that he's not securing the border. I know that he's going against what I said I would do on Obamacare.

But, kids, you see, I have to do this. Because this is the way adults play these games. This is the way the system works.

If you can honestly look at your children and say that, and they don't look at you and say, oh, then you go ahead and vote.

But when your kids look at you, you understand that what you're teaching them is: Kids, sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing. Sometimes it's really right to sell out our principles and to sell out what I said I would do because I have to play the game.

Don't play the game. Don't play the game.

Do the right thing. Where is your faith? Where is your faith in the American people? The American people can handle it. They're big enough. We know it's coming. We don't know how bad it is. But believe me, if this is your first day in Congress, you will soon -- every single congressman I've ever met, every single politician I've ever met, they get into Congress and they tell me six months into it, man, I had no idea it was this bad.

Really? You were that naive? No, Glenn. Even you don't know how bad it is. Have you listened to my program? If it's worse than I say it is, then you have a responsibility to get on the air and say that.

Well, we can't. I mean, the American people might panic.

No, they won't. Have faith in the American people. Have faith in yourself. Have faith in the system. Have faith in the Constitution. Have faith in our founders. Be that standard-bearer.

George Washington said at the Constitutional Convention: George, what do we do? Do we comprise here?

Let us raise a standard that the wise and the honest can repair.

Well, it's time for the wise and honest to repair it. We know it won't be easy. I won't play the game.

I'm begging those in Washington: Stop playing the game. You know what the right thing to do is. Stop listening to the experts. The experts are the ones who got us here.

How many times would you use Google Maps if every time it took you to the wrong destination? How many times would you keep using Google Maps?

Oh, crap. It keeps taking me to the wrong house. Oh, crap, it keeps taking me to the wrong house. Yes, but we're the experts. You're taking me to the wrong house.

Stop using the experts. They're wrong.

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.
