Marco Rubio Earns 'Honor Points' With Glenn

When Glenn was an alcoholic, the thing he missed the most was his integrity.

"As I got to the end of my former life where I realized I was a mess, I realized I had to admit my mistakes, ask for forgiveness, and start all over," Glenn said on radio Tuesday.

He went on to share an example of integrity working well for one presidential candidate in particular---Marco Rubio.

GLENN: Let me give you a great example of integrity working well. Marco Rubio. I like him. I like him a lot. I really disagree with him on policies, especially when it comes to the NSA. Really, strongly disagree with him. I don't necessarily trust him on the border. But I like him. I think he's a decent, honorable man. I just don't agree with his policies.

But I think they're genuine to the bone. I think he believes what he says. Would you agree with that, Pat? You and Stu you guys didn't really know until you sat down and watched him up close, you couldn't really relate to that, that he's a genuine, decent man.

STU: I've seen him be genuine in a couple of interviews where he didn't have to be. Abortion was one of the topics where he took a position he didn't have to take to impress a conservative crowd and took it anyway. So, yes, I generally like him.

GLENN: Would you say that too, Pat?

PAT: Yes. Generally.

GLENN: He's an honorable man. Let me give you an example. Commercial just comes out, he uses me in the back of my car. We just had left a rally. I'm not endorsing Marco Rubio by any stretch of the imagination. Marco's team would like it to look like I'm endorsing him because anytime you can shave a point off of anybody -- you know, a fraction of a point, if it could mean ten voters in Iowa, that's a big deal.

And so they're -- they used it, I think, to make it look like, you know, I was endorsing Marco Rubio. And it was just not right. And they didn't call and ask for permission. And if they would have asked for permission, I probably would have done it. I probably would have said, "Yeah, sure." Because I said it and I stand by it. So we asked them to take it down. And not only did they take it down. They just issued a statement -- and I want to show you. This is integrity.

Shoot. Now, where is it?

(chuckling)

Crap. Now I don't have it. Yeah, here it is. Here it is.

So here's what he wrote. They wrote: Earlier, a video was posted using Facebook videos that were posted by Glenn Beck on his Facebook page and Tomi Lauren from TheBlaze. Senator Rubio was honored by the kind words from these parties.

We have reached out to Glenn and TheBlaze team to apologize for utilizing their intellectual property without prior approval. Fortunately, Mr. Beck and his respective team know that we share much in common in how we view the world, and they have graciously accepted our apologies.

Mr. Beck did ask us to reiterate that what he said in those videos were a true and accurate reflection of his and Ms. Lauren's positions. Mr. Beck does, in fact, believe that if Senator Rubio was the presidential nominee, he does believe the senator would prevail against Mrs. Clinton.

The statement, however, was not meant to be an endorsement of the senator, but rather, after spending time with the senator, both in studio and at a really, his perspective on what would happen in a theoretical matchup.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: That is honorable.

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."
