SCHUMER: You -- there are people who feel that you should leave Burma, there are people who feel you shouldn't be dealing with such a harsh dictatorship. So my question is what is Chevron's future plans in Burma, in the wake of the massive popular opposition to the military junta and its initial refusal to accept disaster aid? Have you weighed in with the Burmese government about accepting disaster aid?

GLENN: Stop. Can you go back to the beginning? Remember I thought this was about why is gas so expensive. Now he's asking, because Chevron has gone into Burma and they are -- Stu, what is it? They are building -- they are helping pull oil out of Burma, but it is not an exclusive deal? They are working with Burma to get some of the oil? And the question now is, I guess, why are you there? Play it again, please.

SCHUMER: There are people who feel you shouldn't be dealing with such a harsh dictatorship. So my question is what is Chevron's future plans in Burma in the wake of the massive popular opposition to the military junta.

GLENN: Stop. Let me just answer that, senator. To get oil. That's our job, to get oil.

SCHUMER: And its initial refusal to accept disaster aid. Have you weighed in with the Burmese government about accepting the disaster aid and, more generally, does your presence in Burma not bolster the military junta?

GLENN: Stop. Have I asked about aid? I mean, my first initial reaction is have I asked them about aid? Yeah, we're in there. I've asked them about aid. I mean, what am I -- I'm an oil company. What am I supposed to do? And has it bolstered their credibility? Excuse me. Chuck Schumer, aren't you the one that says it's cool to meet with Syria? Aren't you the one that says it's cool to meet with Iran? Aren't you the one that says we should be sitting down at the table? Aren't you the one that says we should be engaged with these people? The opposition to you, sir, and the opposition to Barack Obama is that you bolster their credibility. You say that that's meaningless, we should be engaged. I'm sorry. Does it only apply to oil companies and conservatives?

VOICE: Well, thank you. We just in the last two days have committed $2 million to the aid in Burma. The agencies that we're working with, some of them have matched it. So it's $3 million. I have some photographs in my file here of aid being delivered to people in Burma. So I know it's happening, when we're saying it. So we are activities of daily living aid. Even though a lot of others cannot, we are. So that's an advantage, I think.

SCHUMER: Do you think they could use a lot more than $2 million?

VOICE: Of course they could.

GLENN: Stop. Who the hell are you to say that? "Don't you think they can use a lot more than $2 million?" I'm a private company. I'm a private company. And out of the charity of my own heart, I'm giving $2 million. Who the hell are you to say that to me? I and affiliated corporations are giving $3 million total. Our aid, and I have pictures here, sir, to show that it is being delivered. Do you have any pictures of your aid being delivered? Oh, no. You can't. You can't get yours through. Oh, by the way, how much have you given, sir? How much has the united -- the entire United States government of America given to Burma? The answer? $5.5 million. $5.5 million. I'm sorry. My company -- and we picked up the phone and we called some other people. We got $3 million. So private industry, one company, $2 million. Our friends, another million. The entire United States government, $5 million? Don't you think that they could use a little bit more than $5 million? After all, the United States as a people, the people of United States have given $12.1 million. Shouldn't they give more, Mr. Schumer? What an outrage. Aren't we here to talk about the price of gasoline and why it's so high? You want to know why it's so high? Because instead of going out and finding oil right now, I'm sitting here answering questions on did I give enough charity this year. How much charity am I going to have to give, Senator, when you've taken all of my profits. You know, that's another crazy thing about profits. If I've got profits, I can give to charity. Or, I cannot give to charity, just pay you more in taxes and you can pay $5.5 million instead of me adding on top of it $2 million.

I mean, if this doesn't prove that -- these are the McCarthy hearings. These are the McCarthy hearings. You notice -- I want you to listen to this and notice how they keep changing things. First it was, tell me about the aid, tell me about -- we gave $2 million. Do you really think that's enough?

Are you now or have you ever been the president of an oil company? These people, I'm not saying that oil companies are the greatest thing since sliced bread. I'm saying that oil is our lifeblood right now. Do I want to get off it? You bet I do. Do I want new technology? You bet. Do I want natural gas? You bet, natural gas would be great. Natural gas burns cleaner. Natural gas -- we have a ton of natural gas. We have enough natural gas in the ground. If we pulled it up underneath our territory, we would pull the natural gas, we can heat every home in America for the next 100 years and we don't have to keep the thermometer at 72. But congress will not allow us to get it. So we go to really bad places like Burma.

VOICE: I'm saying what Chevron can do, we're doing and we're doing a significant amount, and that goes a long way in Burma. Our plan is to stay in Burma. I've been there and I've seen the people that live in the area where we operate along our pipeline system. I know for a fact that they are better off by us being there than by anybody else being there. So I know we're doing the right thing in Burma. The Burmese government is benefitting from the fact that natural gas is being produced in Burma, but the fact is that if we were there or anybody else was there, that gas will still be being produced. It's been developed and so the only thing we can do by leaving is enhancing the value to the Burmese government. They will get our -- they would get our interest. If we sell our interest, we would pay a large capital gains tax to them. Any way of extracting us would be a benefit, a windfall benefit for the Burmese government. And I know the people there are better by us --

GLENN: Stop. Listen to this. What Schumer is saying is we shouldn't be in bed with Burma because they're bad people. Okay, let's just be consistent on that and we'll get back to that in a second. If we leave, do you think that oil and that gas is just going to go no place? "Oh, the United States doesn't want it. Shoot, they were our only buyer." Or, does that go to somebody else to enrich some other company in some other country? And, in the end, make us more vulnerable. We are talking about strategic defense because we are talking about -- why did Hitler almost lose the war? Hitler almost lost the war. What were our biggest targets? Our biggest targets were his oil refineries. Anything to do with petroleum. We tried to take it out over and over and over again. We knew if we could get his oil, he would be done. Why do you think he was in Africa? Why do you think he was down in the Middle East? Oil. If they can shut off your oil, you're done. And yet let's just bypass Burma. But there's a bigger point. Listen.

SCHUMER: Are you trying to pressure the military government to let in more aid right now in addition to the $2 million you are giving?

GLENN: Stop just a second. Senator, are we here to talk about higher gas prices or are we here to talk about somehow or another some rogue diplomacy? Am I now a -- are you making me an ambassador for the United States? Is that what you're doing? Because I accept. Am I applying pressure? Oh, okay. I'm sorry. I thought I was the head of an oil company.

VOICE: I don't think we could have much effect on that. I can tell you that I am working with the United Nations ambassador who's Mr. Gabari (ph), ambassador Gabari (ph) who is working with the Burmese, we are working with the EU ambassador that's working with the Burmese. So we are doing everything we can.

GLENN: Stop. You notice we're not working with the U.S. ambassador. I wonder why. I wonder why we're not working with -- we're working with the EU and we're working with the UN but we're not working with the American ambassador.

VOICE: But I can assure you I don't think that us as a nonoperating partner in Operation Burma could have much personal effect on the Burmese government.

GLENN: Yeah, what we would like to do is, would you please, Mr. Chevron, could you just stick to the topic? We're here to talk about why gas prices are so high and we want to continue to talk about where you shouldn't be getting oil and gas from. First of all, if you want to play that game, you know, this is what he should have said. You want to play that game, Chuck Schumer, then we should get out of Saudi Arabia. There's a dictatorship. Women can't even drive. 15 of the 19 terrorists in 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia. They also told us, stick it up your yahoo when we asked them to pump some more out. You want to talk about an oppressive regime, you want to talk about being in bed with the devil himself, we're in Saudi Arabia. Are you also going to make a policy to get out of Saudi Arabia, sir? How about Nigeria? I'm just going down here the top oil producing countries, the ones that we import the most oil from. It's Canada. Okay, I'm cool with Canada. Saudi Arabia. Not really cool with that one. Mexico. I've got some issues there. Nigeria, run by warlords. Venezuela. Well, I guess Hugo Chavez isn't too bad. I mean, if you discount that he called Bush the devil right here in New York City, then kicked out American oil companies who couldn't agree to his corporate windfall profits tax, kind of like the one you are going for now which meant more of our companies had to give money to stabilize people and destabilize South America and, by the way, all the government computer disks related to funding a farct, the rebels raping and plunger South America. Yeah, we probably shouldn't get any oil from them, either. And Iraq, oh, well, you'll get into Iraq here in just a second. Colombia, whoa, I mean, these guys seem to be moving in the right direction, you know? I mean, I'm not a senator but, you know, the Democrats don't think that Colombia's doing enough to fight the narcoterrorist and death squads. At least that's what Nancy Pelosi said when she decided not to bring up the bilateral trade agreement for a vote. And I'm sure that decision had absolutely nothing to do with the presidential campaign and not wanting to force legislation that would require Obama and Hillary to take a stand on an issue like that, which splits the Democrats. I'm sure that had nothing -- oh, and Russia. We don't want to take any oil at all from Russia. I mean, that would be crazy talk. I mean, they just threaten another Cold War over the missile shields. They're poisoning their political enemies. They have Viktor Yushchenko, the president of the Ukraine who's all pockmarked and -- why? Because he was standing up against Vladimir Putin. They've arrested capitalists, they've arrested people in oil companies and then they made the president of Russia, appointed him because he's the head of an oil company. Of course, let's not forget about the plutonium 210 that was used to kill also enemies of Vladimir Putin. Oh, and the fact that they keep dropping missiles accidentally on Georgia. Let's not worry about that. We shouldn't take oil from them, either.

Where do we get oil? Here's an idea. How about off our shores? How about in the ANWR? How about from shale? How about in the Gulf of Mexico? Now, we've got to hurry because China is signing 100 year leases on the oil fields in the Gulf. Colombia is signing 100-year leases in the Gulf. We better hurry or we'll miss all those 100-year leases in the Gulf because we want to protect the Gulf, we want to protect our shores, we want to make sure that there's no environmental damage. And when it comes to doing that, I know we would do such, just a poor job in comparison to China and Colombia. Why are gas prices so high. I wonder.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.
