Glenn Beck: Political Geek Update


Its sad when our best hope is that the Democrats don’t get 60 seats in the Senate...

GLENN: Let's go quickly to Stu and get our election report.

STU: We're focusing on the Senate again, Glenn, trying to keep the Democrats away from 60 seats. That is the big number. The four must-win states for Republicans: Mississippi where they are currently leading by at least one, in other polls even more; Georgia by two they lead; Texas by 6 they lead; and the other one is in Kentucky where McConnell leads by 4 and a couple of other polls are actually even more optimistic about that. But an interesting thing has happened in this race. There was a debate the other day and after the debate was over, basically where you could have tape recorders that you could put on the little, on the podium and when the debate was over, McConnell's opponent, the Democrat, stole the tape recorder off -- stole the Republican tape recorder off of the podium.

GLENN: How would he --

STU: Now, this is all on camera because, of course, it's a debate. Now, you wonder why you would put a tape recorder on the podium. Some people was saying because there were audio problems, the other people were saying they were trying to catch him saying something under his breath. But it was apparently allowed by the rules. So we have actually the tape. What happened was he took the tape. It started going between some of his aides. They eventually erased it but they digitally recovered the tape. This is actual audio of the tape. You can hear -- what you're going to hear here basically is a lot of static, a lot of rustling around in this tape recorder because they were stupid enough to steal it but not turn it off. So it was continually recording. You can hear what appears to be the Democratic opponent saying "Don't give it back to them."

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: It's unbelievable. And then at the end you'll actually hear them walk into the bathroom and hear toilets flushing and they still hadn't turned it off. Eventually --

GLENN: Turn the music off for a second, Dan, so we can really hear. This is very difficult for you to hear. It's very obnoxious audio, but listen to this.

(Audio playing)

STU: Rustling around, walking toward the bathroom now. Hear the audio cut down a little. And there's the toilet flushing.

GLENN: That's just unbelievable. I mean, can you -- I mean, look what we're looking to put into congress, people who steal -- we've got 4-year-olds stealing tape recorders and saying, don't give it back to them, don't give it back to them.

STU: It's unbelievable.

GLENN: That should -- you know what? Let me tell you something. I know the good people of Kentucky. You should not vote for anybody, I don't care what side that was on, I'd be saying if it was McConnell, you do not vote for somebody who is a thief, a knowing thief because he's going to come in the middle of the night and check your wallet.

STU: We project two more states in the presidential race today with 100% accuracy. Today Iowa for Barack Obama and Idaho for John McCain. The current electoral vote count, McCain 131, Barack Obama 95.

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."
