Glenn Beck: Sept. 12th Americans



GLENN: Let's go to Don in Pennsylvania, WPHT. Hi, Don.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn. First I'm going to welcome you to my town tomorrow. You are going to Exton tomorrow?

GLENN: Yes, I think I am.

CALLER: I live in Downingtown next door.

GLENN: Am I going there or Friday? I don't even know what day it is.

CALLER: I'm sorry. I don't know what day it is. I'm hoping to see you.

GLENN: Good. I hope so too.

CALLER: With that said let me tell you then I have great respect for your voice.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

CALLER: Your point of view and everything that you say I try to live my life.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Stu, the odds that something complimentary is following this.

STU: Very, very low.

GLENN: Very low, very low. Okay.

CALLER: Very, very low.

GLENN: Very low.

CALLER: Very low.

GLENN: Go ahead.

STU: But?

CALLER: And I listen to you all the time because I am in construction. I'm a Mason. So there's not a lot of noise. You are on constantly.

GLENN: Wait a minute. Hang on just a second. When you say Mason, like the secret handshake guy?

CALLER: No, like brick. I called you last year and told you you were killing my business.

GLENN: I believe I remember you.

CALLER: I was wrong.

GLENN: I was wrong?

CALLER: No, I was wrong. My business survived. When you got on, Americans got to save money, blah, blah, blah, that whole thing I kept saying, well, if everybody does that, then what happens to me?

GLENN: No, no, here's the deal. Don, you just need to always -- if you are in business, you just need to always provide quality.

Food Storage Tip #12


You'd be surprised how much instant Hamburger Helper your garage can hold...

CALLER: You know, I understand.

GLENN: Quality. People always spend money.

CALLER: My business is fine.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: I learned that through my business staying.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: You know, because of my trade, there's not a whole lot out there that can do what I can do, even though there is.

GLENN: All right. Let me hear the bottom.

CALLER: Anyway, here's my point. My point is I have three kids, a stay-at-home wife. How am I supposed to save food? Because if it comes to the point where I have to save food, no matter how good my quality is, people aren't going to have the money. And it's not me. It's every other good guy that I know. We're all in the same boat.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: And I've thought about, you know, be the leader of my house. That's done. That's not a problem. I've gone over things with my wife.

GLENN: What is your -- what is your problem with having some food in the house?

CALLER: Food, I mean, three weeks, that's -- inflation's only going to hit me for three weeks, then food's going to be able to go down? I can't store years of food in my house.

GLENN: Yes, you can. You'd be surprised in what you can do.

CALLER: Things will -- excuse me, but you think things are going to get that bad that me, who has a good business, that, you know, my work is everything, my work is everything.

GLENN: Who are you talking to?

CALLER: I'm going to have to store food for a year to keep my family alive?

GLENN: Who do you think you're talking to? I mean, it's not like you're calling, you know, Willy Wonka, Mr. Sunshine. Yeah, I do think it's going to get bad. Now, do you need a year's worth of food? I don't know. That's up to you. Do you need to buy what you can in bulk and store what you can that you consume? Yeah. Don, it is just, look at it this way. Don't look at it like, "The world is going to end" because you know what, Don? Many are going to survive. Remember in the Great Depression not everybody was hurt. If you had a job, you had a hard time making ends meet, et cetera, et cetera but you got through it and businesses -- not only did business survive, businesses that understood quality thrived, okay? So you may not be affected; you may be. But when you're looking at ways to, "What's the best thing I can do for my dollar," everybody needs to start looking for value. That's why companies like Nordstrom's are having a hard time. Nordstrom's is a great store. I grew up in Seattle. Nordstrom's is a great, great store. However, Wal-Mart is going to be the place that is really going to weather the storm because you can buy more for your dollar at Wal-Mart, okay? So it doesn't mean anything bad about Nordstrom's. It just means people are going to be looking for the best value for their dollar. You have to do the same thing. When it comes to food, understand the best place you can put your dollar right now isn't hard goods that are going to increase in value. You don't have to buy gold. You buy food. If inflation is -- it's already 13%. They will tell you that it's 5, but if you figure it the way it has always been, it's already 13%. You add another 5, 10, 15 points on inflation, it's difficult for a lot of people to buy food. If you had three months of food, if you had six months of food, it would allow you to relieve some -- it's not that you are going to be using all of it all the time unless you're out of a job. You can use that to relieve some of the pressure, you know, in tough times. Believe me, it is a smart investment, it is something that will relieve stress. And again, Don, your family may be good but it is -- this is the theme of what I've been talking about for the last three weeks. What gives me hope is that people are waking up. We are strong, rugged individuals. Each of us have amazing power within us. Each of us make a difference.

Now, you have a choice to make. You are going to say, "I've got a great business and I'm going to survive." Well, you know what? I am, too, brother. But it's not just our responsibility to help ourselves and help our own businesses and employ our, you know, employees and the people that work around us. It is also our responsibility to help others in need. You are going to be a shelter for somebody, you are going to need to be a leader for somebody. But with tough times ahead you are going to be prepared. The stress it will relieve for not only you but others around you will be a great blessing because you are going to feel like the September 12th person. You are going to feel, you are going to -- a metaphor for what is coming is September 11th. It's not going to be an event but it's going to be something that scares a lot of people and they don't know what it is and you need to be the person that is either standing in the street corner with the boot or the one that rolls down your window and puts the money in the boot at every single block. Not because you have to but because you can and because you want to. Because you're a September 12th American.

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."
