GLENN: Jon Huntsman, Sr. is a guy who is teaching me how to be charitable. That was our deal, Jon, when we first met. Teach me how to be charitable. He is a guy who grew up dirt poor, had one shirt when he was growing up, lived in a house that they had to split with another family and they put cardboard walls up in between the two families. Dirt, dirt poor. And now is — he's the guy who invented the egg carton. I didn't — egg cartons one of those things you are like, we didn't always have egg cartons? And he is the styrofoam cup and plastic fork and plate and spoon and I mean, he's an amazing guy, and he is going to die broke because he's giving his billions away, and he has been kind enough to let us use the Huntsman Cancer Institute which has one of the nicest restaurants in the city in it because as a survivor of cancer, he knew he didn't want to eat the Jell O and the really bad food at 3:00 in the morning, he wanted to have a good meal. So he brought some of the best chefs up into this cancer institute so he could cook for them, and he's got a restaurant up there. So we have — he's been gracious enough to let us have that for a fundraiser tonight for 8/28. And then he calls me yesterday. He's the guy I talked to yesterday that I told you about. He called me yesterday and said, Glenn, I want to, I want to give you a check for $50,000. I'm not going to be able to make it to the fundraiser, and I just wanted to give you $50,000 for 8/28. I am — I want you to know I asked if the audience would match that $50,000.

Today at GlennBeck.com/828, I will match both his $50,000 and the audience's $50,000 so we can turn his $50,000 into $200,000, and the proceeds are going to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, an amazing group. But let me introduce you to Jon Huntsman, the most charitable man I know.

HUNTSMAN: Well, Glenn, you know, every time I'm with you, Glenn, I feel a little bit like a different person because you're so gracious. And the one thing, Glenn, that, you know, I listen to your show, I watch you on Fox and more importantly, Glenn, you and I have — you know, we were fishing last week together, we had our families together. I watched you personally and I watched your children and I watched your beautiful wife. I know you very, very well. And Glenn Beck, you know, you can talk all you want about people like me, we do the very best we can, but you are a charitable man, Glenn. I look at what you've done for cancer, I look at the money you've raised, and not many people know this but out of your back pocket, you gave an enormous amount of money to cancer, and it lifted the hearts and souls of cancer patients, Glenn, and so I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your charity and your goodness, Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Well, this is the guy who actually said last week that I was a natural sportsman. Right?

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Stu, natural —

PAT: Stu and I don't believe that, Jon.

HUNTSMAN: No, no, no.

PAT: That can't be true.

HUNTSMAN: I'm here — let me tell you this.

PAT: Set the record straight.

HUNTSMAN: First of all, let me talk just a second about the hoary marmot. If you don't know, the hoary marmot, it ran out from this bush and we had just been chasing this moose down the river.

GLENN: Yeah.

HUNTSMAN: And all of a sudden this wild type of creature came —

GLENN: It's like a dog.

HUNTSMAN: Yeah, but it's a light brown.

GLENN: Squirrel thing.

HUNTSMAN: Huge animal.

GLENN: It's a spooky animal.

HUNTSMAN: Spooky animal. And so Glenn and I both said, there goes a varmint! And, you know, of course it's a marmot. And the thing about it, Glenn, I found out since then was what we saw was a hoary marmot.

GLENN: Right.

HUNTSMAN: But we never saw the yellow bellied marmot.

GLENN: There's a yellow bellied hoary marmot?

HUNTSMAN: No, no.

GLENN: Or just a hoary

HUNTSMAN: Remember those old western movies, that guy would walk into the saloon and they would say, you yellow bellied varmint?

GLENN: Right.

HUNTSMAN: It really was a yellow bellied marmot and we didn't see one but we saw his cousin.

GLENN: So are the yellow belly are they afraid of people?

HUNTSMAN: I don't know whether they are. I think they all got shot in the early West in the saloon.

GLENN: I'm not sure.

HUNTSMAN: But anyway, we had a great time and there is such a thing as a hoary marmot.

GLENN: And I'm fishing and Jon says to me for the first time in my life, a man says to me, you are a natural sportsman. And I said, yes, I am. Yes, I am.

HUNTSMAN: Not only that, Glenn, but our guide looked at you and here was — here's Glenn Beck, folks. I've got to paint this picture because we're on this beautiful river in Idaho, moose running along the side, hoary marmots on the other side, coyotes running up and down.

GLENN: It's nice, isn't it, Pat?

HUNTSMAN: And there's Glenn with one hand. I mean, to all you fly fisherman who use two hands, here's Glenn with one hand hitting the dry fly. It's not a wet. It's a dry, which is very difficult to maneuver in a wind, we had a light wind. And there he was right along the grass, right along the shore. There he was cast after cast after cast.

GLENN: Natural.

HUNTSMAN: Natural.

PAT: Have you ever seen him throw a ball, Jon? Have you ever seen him throw a baseball, football, basketball?

GLENN: Hey, I have to tell you this story. This is my favorite story, me not being a sportsman is my 5 year old son Raphe, we go out to play catch with the ball. My 5 year old son, he's — we're, actually we're not playing catch. I'm throwing — I'm pitching it so he can hit it with a baseball bat. I pitch like three times. He just puts the bat down on the ground and says, Dad, you are really not good at this.

HUNTSMAN: No, no, but Glenn's turned over an entire new life, an entire new leaf, Glenn.

GLENN: Yes, yes. So anyway, well, Jon, thank you so much for your donation and thank you —

HUNTSMAN: Glenn, here's a check for $50,000, Glenn.

PAT: Oh, wow.

HUNTSMAN: I am so honored. Let me just say one word. You know, honoring, Restoring Honor in America and this Special Operations Warriors Fund, I had the privilege to serve in the United States Navy as a gunnery officer. We took the first troops into Southeast Asia. In 1961 I took 1100 Marines on a ship and we dropped them off and, you know, some of them didn't return. This was in the early days of the war and as it cranked up and cranked up, those of us who served in that theater and served in the Pacific. You know, we have a great affection for these young men and women who are the sons and daughters of these special operations forces in the army, Navy, Marines and Air Force, and what a great, wonderful thing you are doing, Glenn. 8/28 and the restoring of honor to America. No one else in America has done this but you, Glenn Beck, and I salute you and we really commend you for it.

GLENN: I have to tell you, these guys, who's the — what was the sergeant's name, Eddie that was on this week with us? Here's a guy, these warriors are all exactly the same. Here's a guy who had, what was it, Pat, a rocket went off?

PAT: Rocket propelled grenade hit him in both his arms.

GLENN: Blew both hands off. So here's a guy that has no hands left and we're talking to him and he has the hooks for hands, and he's like, "You know, I just want to go back."

PAT: He wanted to go back.

GLENN: "I just want to go back." I mean, he went back. It didn't end his service. He taught hand to hand combat after that with no hands.

HUNTSMAN: Just incredible.

PAT: Amazing.

GLENN: These guys are amazing. Hunts they are amazing. And two weeks ago, Glenn, I had the privilege, and Pat, to be at the United States naval academy and there one of my sons was just inducted, sworn in as a new midshipman going through Plebe Summer and we just found out this week that another grandson has been admitted for next year to the U.S. Naval Academy, but these kids want to be SEALs. They have been training their life so they can go out and, you know, it's such an honor to be a grandfather to these young warriors, the young men and women who want to grow up, serve their country and be SEALs and to do what you are honoring these special operations people for doing, Glenn.

GLENN: Jon Huntsman, what a pleasure.

HUNTSMAN: One of my dearest friends in all my life, Glenn Beck. Thanks, dear friend.

GLENN: That means a lot, 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.
