Harvey Update: Anyone Traveling Over the Weekend Should Be Aware of This

In the wake of Tropical Storm Harvey, a left-leaning online news host gloated about “billions of damage” to the Texas oil industry. But climate change activist or not, you will be affected by the blow to oil refineries in Texas as the price of travel rises.

“If you are thinking about going someplace for Labor Day weekend, you might want to reconsider,” Glenn warned on radio Thursday.

“I don’t know, at least in Texas, if you’re going to be able to get gas throughout the weekend,” Glenn said, detailing why Tropical Storm Harvey has disrupted not only the gasoline supply for Texans but also for the rest of the country. He predicted that the hurricane’s lasting effects will be felt beyond the state, potentially affecting the price of jet fuel and flights.

In the Dallas area, people are lining up for gas, while some pumps already bear signs saying, “Sorry, out of gas.”

GLENN: Welcome to the program. So glad that you're here. A couple things that you should be aware of. Anybody who you're hearing talk about, you know, global warming and climate crisis and how they're glad these oil refineries are shutting down and how these evil oil corporations are getting theirs now, let me just say this: If you live anywhere in Texas, you should know that 90 percent of all of the gas that is in Texas comes through Houston, those oil refineries that shut down a few days ago.

There's no new gas coming out of those oil refineries. So if you are thinking about going some place for Labor Day Weekend, you might want to reconsider because I don't know, at least in Texas, if you're going to be able to get gas throughout the weekend. Lines are already starting to form here. Four gas stations on the way in had signs on the pump. Sorry, out of gas. They don't know when they're going to get gas.

I bet this affects more than just Dallas and Texas. I would imagine. I don't know the supply lines, but I would imagine a lot of the Gulf and southwest region is supported by the oil refineries that were shut down now in Houston. And we, again, don't know when they'll open up again. Get gas today, fill your gas tanks. And make sure you have some.

And I would highly recommend that you do it today and then reevaluate your plans. Also, you should know that 42 percent of all jet fuel comes from the Gulf. So if you haven't purchased a ticket on an airplane, you might want to purchase it right now, but I would check in to see if they have a fuel surcharge. Because if you buy a ticket and a couple of weeks they have no jet fuel or jet fuel is really, really expensive, if they can add a surcharge, they will. Because there's no more jet fuel coming out of the Houston area, at least for a while.

And, again, that jet fuel services 42 percent of the airline industry in America. It's going to get very expensive to travel.

Next week, we're going to give you a look at the -- the dominoes that something like this cause. You know, people -- people think that it was the stock market in 1929 that caused the crash. It really wasn't.

The Biden administration wants to fundamentally change our economy and they've made some truly game-changing moves in recent days, but you won't hear anyone in the mainstream media talking about it. If you want to know what the government doesn't want you to notice, pay attention to what the White House releases on Friday afternoons.

Last Friday afternoon — when fewer people would notice — the administration announced a new "comprehensive, government-wide strategy" to overhaul our nation's economy and protect us all from the "financial risks of climate change."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reviewed Biden's new climate finance report and explained why he believes the administration's plans to fundamentally change the economy is "the most dangerous movement in the world right now."

Glenn started out by playing a video clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki telling reporters, "The President wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that" during a press briefing last week.

"That's interesting because what she just said is the exact language, almost a quote, from the people over at the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum," Glenn said of Psaki's statement.

"This is the most dangerous movement in the world right now. It is a direct shot, by a railgun, at liberty. And when I started talking about this, about a year and a half ago, the system went into overdrive to call it a conspiracy. ... This is how they shut people down. They isolate and alienate you by calling the opposition conspiracy theorists. Everything is a conspiracy. Well, there are some conspiracies out there. But you need to know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.
