Glenn Beck: The next Chris Christie?



Learn more about Tom Tancredo

GLENN: All right. Tom, I was just in Colorado last night, and I heard the happiest news ever. There are people that actually believe, and I am so happily in this camp, that you could be the next governor of Colorado. What a message that would send to America. Oh, my gosh.

TANCREDO: It really is incredible. We have come out, I think about 30, over 30 points in a little over three and a half weeks.

PAT: Wow.

TANCREDO: That's got to be some sort of record. I know it's never happened in any race I've ever seen before. And it's the result of a lot of things coming together, of course, but it is a really exciting time. I'm not kidding you. The enthusiasm, my gosh, everywhere I go, the crowds just keep getting bigger and bigger.

GLENN: The enthusiasm last night, I was giving a speech last night and the enthusiasm when I said your name on stage, I said I think it was the first thing I came out, I said Colorado, Tom Tancredo? And they went crazy. And I said, oh, it will drive the rest of the country and the left out of their mind! I'll move here if you'll do that! Help, how can I help?

TANCREDO: That would cinch the deal. That would cinch the deal.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. I mean, you know, I would feel so comfortable with state rights and that the I'm worried about many of these governors who don't really get it, and I'm not sure even if they do get it that they will stand in the end.

TANCREDO: Do anything about it.

GLENN: Yeah.

TANCREDO: I keep saying that, you know, I said the first thing I'll do, but I said that there are so many first things that you have to do that I'm now down to saying, you know, one of the first things I will do.

GLENN: Right.

TANCREDO: Is to pick up the phone and call Chris Christie and then, you know, put him on hold and try to use my, what little talent I have technologically speaking to connect us to Jan Brewer and do a little conference call and say and maybe there will be one or two other governors at that time that would have the guts to join me, but what I'm asking them to do, what I will ask them to do is to join me in launching a Tenth Amendment revolution in this country.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. You know who you really

TANCREDO: And if we do this together, you know I mean, alone probably you don't get far. But if you can get a few governors together to really band together and make a line in the sand and say, you know, you're not coming any farther, federal government. This is the State of Colorado, Arizona, New Jersey, there is nothing more that we need from you or want from you. And as a matter of fact, you can take your stimulus money and go pound sand with it.

GLENN: Oh, I love this. I love this. I will tell you, Tom, I mean this sincerely, I am looking for a place to relocate at least myself, and my company will remain here in New York, but I'm re Jeffy, you can come well, no, you can't come with, but you can relocate. I'll relocate you... well, you should be relocated to prison is where you should be relocated, but

TANCREDO: (Laughing).

GLENN: I mean, I'm telling you it is going to be Texas and the mountain west that save this country. It really will be.

TANCREDO: Well, let me tell you about the values system at least as it is viewed by the gentleman I am running against, Mayor Hickenlooper he said I don't know if you guys have seen this or not. He said and they came up on YouTube just a couple of days ago. But he goes he's talking to a lady at something called well, gosh. I'll trying to think of the name of the institute now. Shepherd. Because it was created as a result of the young man that was killed in Wyoming because he was gay, and you remember that a while back? Matthew shepherd?

GLENN: Yes.

TANCREDO: Well, they created this entity, this out here in Colorado, Matthew Shepard Foundation or something like that for gay and transvestite and transgendered and he was talking to a lady who was the head of that organization and he said, we have that same kind of backward thinking here in rural Colorado, Wyoming, Montana. You know how these people are.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

TANCREDO: Yes, yes. Yes, he is and it's in the context of this murder, a horrible crime. He's suggesting that the people in Colorado and in the West Virginia values system, of course, that leads to this kind of thing and that we're all just kind of waiting to catch the next young gay guy out there and beat him to death or torture him or something like that.

GLENN: You know, Tom

TANCREDO: He said that on this clip, it's just absolutely amazing. The backward thinking, backward thinking.

GLENN: You almost we're downloading apparently this clip now. When you have that clip, let me play it here. You know, Tom, what people don't understand is the left has such contempt for most of America. They have contempt. When the president yesterday said or the day before yesterday said that to the Hispanic audience that he was speaking to, he said, and you have to know, you have to get out so we can punish our enemies. Our enemies. We're not talking about we have disagreements of opinion. We're talking about our enemies. And they have such contempt. They are quite frightening.

TANCREDO: Don't you remember that he said Obama really said almost something very similar to what Hickenlooper said when he said, you know, when it gets tough out there, the rough economy, these people start to grab for their guns and Bible. They hang onto their guns and Bible, you know? Remember that?

GLENN: Yeah, the bitter white people that hang onto their God and their guns, yeah.

TANCREDO: Yeah. And then just another reflection of what you're saying, it just hit me while you were talking about their attitude. Do you remember the scene I've got pictures. People sent me some pictures of the White House Christmas tree in this last this last Christmas.

GLENN: With Mao.

TANCREDO: Remember first of all that Mrs. Obama was trying to stop any sort of anything that would be a reference to Christianity being part of the Christmas decorations in the White House. And they've finally they decided, well, that would cause too much of an uproar. So they put a few out. But on the Christmas tree, the decorations, the Christmas, the balls that hang on the tree.

GLENN: Sure, yeah.

TANCREDO: One of them was Mao Zedong and the other was a lady a person, I don't know what you call, but it's a famous transvestite named Heada Lettuce. Those were the Christmas decorations in the White House. What does this tell you about their attitude?

GLENN: I don't know. I want to know more about Head of Lettuce.

TANCREDO: Heada Lettuce.

GLENN: I never heard of Heada Lettuce.

TANCREDA: I haven't heard she's a very famous transvestite.

GLENN: Okay, I'll take your word for that.

TANCREDO: You've got to keep up on your transvestite

GLENN: I know, I think we should have a radio show, we should name somebody Heada Lettuce. I think that's one of the greatest names of all time, Heada Lettuce. I like that. I like her, him or whatever. I don't know anything about him.

TANCREDO: I don't know exactly how to genderize it but, yeah, Heada Lettuce.

GLENN: I like that. So Tom, what is it that you are besides the Tenth Amendment, what is it that is connecting in Colorado? What is the thing?

TANCREDO: Well, there is this little issue. It is called illegal immigration.

GLENN: Yeah. You've been on the forefront of that.

TANCREDO: Yeah.

GLENN: Forever.

TANCREDO: Mayor Hickenlooper runs a sanctuary city where among the many horrible crimes that have been committed by illegal aliens who then go out and break other crimes but are never turned over to ICE is one that has just honestly captured the imagination and the hearts of the people in this state. A while back a young man this just epitomizes, okay? What I'm going to describe to you is one event but it is the epitome of a sanctuary city and the one the mayor runs.

A little boy by the name of Marten Kudlis and his mother were at a Baskin and Robbins ice cream store in Aurora, Colorado. She tells him to go sit down, be a good boy, and that she will get him his ice cream cone. He sits down, she goes over to the counter. A guy, an illegal alien crashes into a pickup truck that was pulling into the Baskin and Robbins place, kills the two people in that truck, then careens into the front of the Baskin and Robbins store and kills this little boy, Marten Kudlis. By the way, the Kudlis family, they're legal immigrants here in the United States and in Colorado. They now, it's a horrible story. It's a terrible, terrible tragedy, but what makes it even more terrible is that the guy who did it had been arrested sixteen times.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

TANCREDO: In and around the City of Denver and the surrounding area. Never once, never once turned over to ICE as an illegal alien, never once. So that is the kind of thing that people just go crazy about, as well they should. This man, Mr. Kudlis, asked he said to me, what can I do? You know, he wanted to make it he's got a commercial up for me. It's just, every time I see it, it breaks my heart. But that certainly is another part of this. Because Hickenlooper would turn the state into a sanctuary state, and I keep saying I'm going to try my best to make Colorado a business friendly and an illegal immigrant unfriendly place to be, and I certainly will do that.

GLENN: I can't even imagine, I can't even imagine

TANCREDO: No.

GLENN: a week from today if you win, I cannot even imagine the message that that would send. This, to me, this race is one of the biggest, most important messages to be sent. Because Colorado is a state that was, was red. They flipped it blue. Very blue. And they have organized this state six ways to Sunday.

TANCREDO: Oh, man, yeah.

GLENN: This is the state, Colorado is the state that was the prototype for all other organizations

TANCREDO: That's right.

GLENN: For all other states.

TANCREDO: That's right.

GLENN: This is the key state for them. They changed they flipped Colorado and said we can flip the whole country because look what we've done to Colorado. And for it to go for not a Republican but for Tom Tancredo running as an independent? That's incredible. Incredible.

TANCREDO: Republicans are down to 5% in the most recent polls.

GLENN: Let me ask you this. Why didn't the Republicans I mean, you were a Republican. You weren't a popular Republican in the Republican Party, but

TANCREDO: Yeah.

GLENN: You would think at some point they would say, let's have the state go to Tom.

TANCREDO: Well, believe me they are trying everything they can. I mean, the head of the Republican Party here calls their candidate the worst candidate that's been by the Republican Party.

GLENN: Oh, okay, good.

TANCREDO: They are trying

GLENN: I'm glad to hear that.

TANCREDO: He won't get out. He is mad at me, he's mad at the party.

GLENN: No, that's just fine.

TANCREDO: He is just an angry guy. So he is sticking in there. And that could be the problem for us.

GLENN: I'm glad to actually hear that.

TANCREDO: We are in striking distance, we are in the margin of error in almost every poll that's out there. We are within 2 or 3 points and the momentum is on our side. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

TANCREDO: There is I'm not kidding you, buddy. We could get this done. It's amazing.

GLENN: That's great. Tom Tancredo, thank you very much. Best of luck to you.

TANCREDO: Tancredoforgovernor.org.

GLENN: You got it. Thanks a lot, Tom. Tom Tancredo from Colorado.


 

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."
