Olbermann continues to gush... See Michelle...

GLENN: This hour I will tell you who I believe the presidential nominee is going to be for John McCain and I'll tell you exactly why I believe it coming up in just a second. First I want to go back to, what was it, night before last Keith Olbermann was on MSNBC and he had just watched Michelle Obama's speech and this is what he said. Listen.

OLBERMANN: Case, I think, closed.

GLENN: Case close.

OLBERMANN: If that was to be more about tone than content, pitch perfect. If it was supposed to be more about content than tone, pitch perfect. If that was supposed to be about friendliness and what they call accessibility, couldn't have done it better. Couldn't have done it better. And the premise of this speech, to try to erase doubts that now seem difficult to voice aloud because they seem almost foolish, that could not have gone better for them. That could not have gone better for them. It's wonderful. It really was terrific. The women in that convention hall, there were tears throughout among the women. And it was not a modeling speech, it was not a salesmanship speech. There was just a I know. I'm beginning to sound borderline sickophantic on this.

GLENN: No! No, Keith, you're not starting to sound that way, and it's not borderline. You crossed the border hours ago.

STU: Actually, Glenn, it is it was borderline sickophantic. It was just borderline between sickophantic and actual worship.

GLENN: Pitch perfect, Stu. When's the last time you ever said that about anything. When's the last time he said anything even close to something like this for a Republican? See, this is what I can't stand. I cannot stand these people with an agenda who won't admit it in the first place. The guy is a socialist. The guy is a Barack Obama supporter, period. Say it. "Look, I want you to know I come as a supporter. So I think this was pitch perfect." I don't have a problem with that. But to come out and do the analysis on this, do you think CNN would ever allow me to do that? Do you think they would ever allow me to do that? Never. Never. Do you think MSNBC would ever allow me to do that? Never. Never. And I you know the words that have never been written in my prompter for me? "Never" have been written. I go over and I did Larry King. I went off prompter immediately. I don't I don't nobody writes words for me. And they were very I made them very nervous because this is what was written in the prompter. What was written in the prompter was, "Hi, I'm Glenn Beck. I'm filling in for Larry King tonight. I appreciate it. Thank you, Mr. King." That was what was written in the prompter. I said something very close to that and then I said, listen, if you don't know who I am, I want to explain something to you. I'm a conservative. So I'm going to try to be as fair as I can, but I come, I come from this with a conservative angle. I just thought it was important for you to know. That was not in prompter. That needs to be said. But you know what? I'm a conservative. You wouldn't hear me say that about John McCain or anybody else: That was pitch perfect, that was pitch perfect. Now, what did he say last night? That was Michelle Obama. What could he possibly say other than it was perfect, people were crying, it was great, it was pitch perfect, it was supposed to be this, it was perfect, it was this, it was perfect, it was just perfect. What could he possibly say about Hillary Clinton? This is Keith Olbermann last night at MSNBC.

OLBERMANN: Grand slam. Grand slam, out of the ballpark, across the street. Across the buildings across the street. Five, six, maybe seven campaign slogans in that speech. Starting out from the getgo, a sock to the jaw of about disunity, a speech that started about Barack Obama, a proud supporter about Barack Obama. Then a lot about her, some about George Bush, twist will it all back to get her supporters to recognize that their goals are now best served by Barack Obama. Then Michelle, then Biden, then several key, strongest hits against John McCain we've heard at this convention and finally tying it all back together. I don't know how it could have been better.

GLENN: He doesn't know. He doesn't know how it could have been any better.

OLBERMANN: I don't know how it could have been better.

GLENN: He doesn't know how it could have been better (laughing). What is he going to say tonight? We have to take wagers on this. What is this man going to say tonight? I want to know. I think he's what's left? What's left? Spoke's speaking tonight? Clinton. Okay. So Bill Clinton's talking tonight and he's already used pitch perfect. Then he's used, out of the ballpark. Rocket ship to the moon. Rocket ship to the moon. He was on a rocket ship to the moon and he just never, he just took off and he was just never he just kept going and going. He was this speech, this speech was like a rocket ship to the moon. He landed on the moon. He set up a little colony there. They discovered, you know, totally 100% green energy that could be floated back magically to space. It couldn't have been even better. If he would have invented 100% clean energy on the moon, there in a colony and shipped it back magically, telepathically as only a Clinton or Obama could do. It couldn't have been better than this speech tonight. It wouldn't have been better. He could have in fact, he could have it was a rocket ship to the moon. He went all the way to the moon, he developed clean energy, he telepathically sent it back to us. He then set up these giant solar panels that he made out of the bones of Newt Gingrich and it collected all of the solar energy and it collected from the sun, it renewed the sun. It made the sun a little more manageable and then he took that solar energy and he shipped it back down here to save children without faces. And those children who have been struggling because of this administration, they haven't been able to afford the food because they needed some sort of food. And you know we can develop it. It's only because big energy hasn't allowed us to make it. You know the big three automakers have the technology to make food go through your face new don't have a mouth. But they have been holding it back because of the pharmaceutical companies and big oil and those damn Democrats and their back room deals with big oil and cigars and the Saudis and Dick Cheney. And it couldn't have been better if he would have just nailed Dick Cheney to a cross on stage there that he had built with solar energy on the moon. It couldn't have been any better if that hadn't happened. I think that's all he's got left.

STU: I think you are underselling the way he's going to react to that speech. It is like

GLENN: You know, I really, truly believe that Bill Clinton came off as Jesus Christ. Now, that is not to be look, I know a lot of people that watch me don't even believe in God but let me use this. Go with me for a second. I believe there is a God and Jesus Christ his son. And the son of God appeared tonight, not to be mistaken with actual God who will be in front of the Greek Temple tomorrow. Being cheered by 80,000 people. And then I think that's really what you have to understand, that I and the father are one. You saw the son tonight. Tomorrow you will see God. And pitch perfect. Couldn't have been any better. Just amazing. Just amazing.

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.

I can no longer relate to the modern pro-choice woman. I don’t want to shout my abortion. I want to pretend it never happened. Up until the SCOTUS leak, I had done a pretty good job of burying my 20-year secret. But the Roe v. Wade information earthquake triggered an eruption. I can no longer pretend to be ambivalent or leave it to blue-check pro-lifers to speak for me. My days of repeating the “safe, legal, and rare” mantra like a good, GenX libertarian feminist are over.

Some pro-abortion activists call their life-ending procedure “self-care,” like they just booked a hot stone massage or a facial at a spa. This is a polite euphemism many women tell themselves – not because we are cold-blooded killers, but because it’s how we survive. We HAVE to lie in order to justify what is actually taking place. Denial is a protective coating, a barrier from the truth. Remember, any woman born after Roe v. Wade has been programmed to believe that abortion is a natural-born right. “It’s legal; therefore it must not be evil. This is a medical procedure. Women do it every day.” Planned Parenthood has a nice way of describing abortion on its website: “A doctor uses a combination of medical tools and a suction device to gently take the pregnancy tissue out of your uterus.” “Gently take the tissue out.” Benign euphemisms that wrap our hearts and minds in a suffocating cocoon. Benign euphemisms to keep us in line.

I was raised in the Bible Belt and to believe that sex before marriage was the gravest of sins. You’d be better off robbing a store by pistol than to be caught fornicating with a boy. And yet I did fornicate with a boy. No boy I’d ever be proud to bring around to my parents. I never gave him the option to talk me out of it. I just demanded he pay half for the procedure and never speak of it again. I told myself it would be easier to survive the hidden shame of the abortion than wear the shame of my sin on my belly for the next nine months.

...the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job.

I took the so-called “easy” way out at six weeks along and swallowed a pill I got from some abortionist who gave me the creeps. He was no medical saint like the one portrayed in “The Cider House Rules,” nobly saving women from coat-hanger abortions. The doctor in my story made a quick buck at the expense of terrified “good girls.” Years later I would learn he kept aborted fetuses in buckets and was under investigation for shady medical practices. I couldn’t leave his clinic fast enough, but at least I wouldn’t have to miss work or skip my college classes. I could finish my degree and still make my parents proud. How convenient. But the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job. Now I had to see a real obstetrician, get an ultrasound, and deal with the aftermath.

This doctor’s office was nicer. It had bright lights and pink walls. Although my doctor was professional, I still felt the quiet judgment in her voice. I refused to look at the image of my tortured fetus on the screen. I knew what it would mean if I did – my feminist career ambitions would lose the battle to my soul if I looked at that baby. The doctor told me the fetus was still viable but likely mentally damaged. The “kinder” thing to do would be to finish the job at an in-clinic abortion. End the fetus’ suffering and end my own self-torture. I woke up from anesthesia to learn the abortion was complete. It’s over so quickly, but the internal conflict hangs. And hangs.

You find weird ways to cope. Not long after, I discovered an abandoned robin’s egg, still perfectly intact. I wrapped it in a sock and carried it with me for over a decade. If I couldn’t do right by my own child, maybe I could keep this unhatched egg safe. Eventually, I had to come to terms with the fact that the bird egg was dead, and I got therapy. He was a good New York psychologist. Secular, liberal, tolerant. He helped me to forgive myself, but I always knew who I really needed to ask for forgiveness …

It’s easy for a young woman with all those stockpiled eggs in her ovaries to be pro-choice. She can toss away the miracle of life like a rotten banana or a bruised apple because it is easily replaced. It wasn’t until I was forced to confront the mortality of my own fertility that I felt the full force of my regret.

But I do not write this letter to achieve redemption or to be the new face of the pro-life movement. You will not see me pleading with women outside an abortion clinic. You will not see me protesting with a cutesy, homemade sign at the March for Life. You will not see me sparring on Twitter, confronting baby-killers with cold, hard facts. For now, you will not even know my name. I suppose this is not very brave, but my story is not complete and God’s work in me is in an active state. Mine is a modest mission: Maybe if I’m honest about my own wounds, I can help other women like me to heal. Maybe I can love the terrified, knocked-up woman in the Bible Belt who believes the best worst lies our society has ever told, better than any conservative talk show host ever could.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound. It’s naive to think we will fix this mess for the unborn overnight and deprogram men and women plugged into 50 years of slick, well-packaged lies. Slavery was legal in the U.S. for over 200 years before we fought a war to end it. And it was another 100 years before we ended state-sanctioned racism.

When it comes to the issue of defending innocent life, I know it’s hard to be patient. This is a clear battle of good vs. evil for many on the right, but you need allies like me – the former “safe, legal, and rare” pro-choicers who are afraid to come out of the shadows. Afraid to become a political prop in the culture wars, but willing to do the quiet missionary work in our back yards.

I hope for the day future progressives look back in horror at today’s progressives fighting to keep abortion on demand. I hope for the day the New York Times publishes the pro-life version of the 1619 Project. Maybe they’ll call it the “1973 Project,” “whose mission is to reframe the country's history by placing the consequences of abortion and the contribution of the pro-life movement at the very center of our national narrative.”

Until that day, I want to help these women to be braver than me. To see beyond their impossible tomorrow. If I had allowed someone the chance to help me be brave, I might not have had the same successful career, but I would have a 20-year-old son or daughter in whom to invest this unexplained overflow in my heart.

Dear EV drivers: Think you're safe from soaring gas prices? Think again.

Diesel fuel prices have surged to record levels, adding to already record-high inflation in the U.S. But most Americans don't drive cars that run on diesel, and many have turned to electric vehicles (EVs) to avoid the ever-increasing pain at the pump. So, how would diesel supply shortages — and the resulting sky-high prices — affect you or your budget?

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck explained why every American should be concerned about the rising cost of diesel.

"Diesel fuel is the fuel that powers the economy," Glenn began. "How does that work? Well, let's start over in China. You want something from China, you have to put it onto a big boat, a slow boat from China, and that's powered by diesel.

"Then, it gets to our docks," he continued. "You know all of those big cranes and everything else that take that crap off of the ship and then put it on the ground? Run by diesel. And then the forklifts that come and pick it up and then bring it over to the train, those run on diesel. And then the train, those engines, they run on diesel. And then the trucks that get it halfway across the country from the train where they're picked up again by the forklifts, run by diesel. Then they're put into another truck, also run by diesel."

"I sure hope all the people bragging about their electric cars as gas prices skyrocket have a backup plan for their food too. Because as diesel prices go crazy, so does the price of EVERYTHING," Glenn posted on Twitter.
