WATCH: Glenn shares important update about his health that will take him off air for July

Long time listeners may have noticed a change in Glenn's voice over the past couple of weeks. After consulting with doctors, he has been diagnosed with severe vocal cord strain resulting from overuse. Glenn's doctors have advised him to rest his voice over the next couple of weeks, and as a result he will be off radio and TV for the month of July. We expect him to return to the air on August 3rd, fully recovered.

During this four week period, Glenn will need to fight every urge to speak to give his vocal cords rest, and a selection of guests offering similar entertaining and enlightening points of view will host his radio and television programs.

Glenn will continue to stay in touch with you - the fans, viewers, and listeners - on his Facebook page and GlennBeck.com during this recovery period.

Below is the message Glenn shared on Facebook and radio today:

As you may or may not have noticed over the past couple of months, my voice has been changing a bit. Because I have had problems with my nerves in my vocal cords in the past where my voice has stopped working. I have been a little concerned, but I have really really great doctors, and this Friday I consulted with them and they have advised me to take a few weeks off and rest my voice due to some severe strain that has happened.

I know what I have to do. And I know how much work is left to do. And this is just another irritant in the long road of irritants. But its not going to stop me, and it's only going to sharpen my focus.

I intend on using the next few weeks on intensive study on figures of the past, on figures of courage, and figures of people who have really made a difference.

I also think this is going to be a great advantage for us as we get together for  August 28th and 29th in Birmingham, Alabama. Because of all the things I do, it is very hard for me to keep ahead of the game. This will give me a few weeks head start to focus on where we need to go next.

I have been talking about a lot of things in the past eight to nine years and have been warning about things like a caliphate, civil unrest, and a collapse of Greece - and we have now seen all of those things come to fruition.

I have also warned about the coldness of our hearts and the fact that we look for the speck in other people's eyes over the beam in our own. I am probably the most imperfect messenger on this, and I really believe this will give me an opportunity to do a lot of soul searching. To do a lot of reflection. And to, for the first time in about fifteen years, really listen more than I speak, which is a good thing for everybody.

I appreciate your tolerance, and all of the radio stations and television statements, and all of my partners in business for their understanding of this sabbatical and this time that doctors have told me I need to take off.

I appreciate you for sticking with us.

I know the staff has this weekend been working overtime on the thing that we can do to enrich us and keep us on track for where we are headed. They will be doing some really exciting things on radio and television that I think will help us. The time for looking and saying what is happening with the news is over. Now we need to start to say what's coming our way and what can we do about it - and that's where my focus is going to be.

I'm going to continue to stay with you on Facebook and everything in written form, but as of today doctor's have advised me to no longer speak for a while.

There's a lot of people in the world who are celebrating this, but it's only going to be for a few weeks. I believe it will humble me, it will make me a better man, and will perhaps teach me of the things that are worthy to be said, as I measure every word now that I can speak. I think this will be a very good thing.

I thank you for your prayers, your concern, your membership in TheBlaze. I thank you for that as you keep us going during this troubled time.

I will speak to you again in about a month.

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."
