GLENN: Hey, let me ask you about this story. Here's a story that I think, I think that this story not being anywhere just proves how ubiquitous this story really is. On Friday, couple of weeks before Christmas, aka, birth of Jesus Christ, Sarah Palin's church in Wasilla, Alaska apparently set on fire by arsonists while women and children were inside. Hmmm. They made it out safely. The damage to the building totals around $1 million. I say damage to the building and not the church because despite the fire, the church went on to have services anyway in a nearby middle school. Church is more than just a building, but the building burned down. The congregation, by the way, not freaking out. One member, Patsy Inks, says she was initially shocked and frustrated by the news but by Sunday, two days later, she was feeling blessed. "The tragedy has brought us together," she said. A September 12th American, it appears. Palin stopped by the church Saturday saying she was sorry if this had anything to do with the undeserved negative attention the church had received after the election. Police don't necessity yet if it was related. Church members say they thought it was just likely local punks or someone who had a beef with God. Of course, the article finds the need to mention that the church bulletin had talked about a Focus on the Family event about how same-sex relationships can be overcome, but that's just vital to a story about fire -- I'm not sure, unless you are saying that maybe somebody with a gay agenda set the church on fire? Is that what the story was saying? I'm not sure why that was in there.

The question is have you heard this story? Why is this story not leading every newscast? I get so frustrated with the news now, I can't take it. I can't take it. Yesterday I talked to the people at Fox and Friends and we were supposed to do a new story on -- jeez, what was it? It was the bailouts and something else, and it was -- and I was talking to them about the possibility of a Civil War in America. I get on Fox and Friends this morning and I talk -- we changed the subject to Clint Eastwood and how America's just not tough enough right before we went on the air. And if you watch Fox and Friends and you go over to NBC's Today Show or Good Morning America, you will think that Fox and Friends is, you know, a thinktank in comparison. Nobody is talking about the real issues. We are in real trouble.

Now, I don't think that this church being burned down should lead the news, but in today's society maybe it should. In the America I grew up in, it wouldn't have to. I mean, I know the President was almost hit by a shoe and everything, but isn't this a pretty big story? Whenever there's some racist that burns down a black church in the South somewhere, the story is everywhere. But the woman who has come closer than any other to being vice president of the United States has her church burned down and you barely find the story anywhere. In one way I'm glad this happened to Sarah Palin's church because the leadership of the church and the congregation have reacted with class. They've reacted the way you should. They went on. None of that -- without hate, without malice, without stone-throwing. But let me ask you this: Do you think it would lead the news if Barack Obama's old church had been burned down, the church of Jeremiah Wright? Do you think that would have led the news? A man who's already blaming the government for creating AIDS to kill African-Americans, imagine what he would be saying into any camera that would tape him. Not only would the media suddenly find a way to make a front page story in every single paper, this would squarely be blamed on hateful people like Sarah Palin, not to mention there would be calls to get rid of talk radio already today. We would have riots in the streets, and the media would be more than happy to egg them on.

I don't know who did this and maybe it is just local punks and I hope it is just local punks, but I can tell you that regardless of the cause, the people of the church and the way they are reacting is inspiring. In a very difficult holiday season, I'm more and more impressed every day that the body of God -- and that means Jews, Hindus, Christians, Muslims, everybody -- the body of God is under attack and if we don't start pulling together, if we don't start being those people that see God in everybody's eyes, if we're not those people that stand together, we're in big trouble. When somebody can burn down a church and nobody says anything about it, that's either a really good sign or it's a sign that they are not on the politically correct side. So burning that church down doesn't make a difference. By the way, this church, to quote a crazy book that some people are reading now, this church congregation is facing their storm with just unbelievable class. They would never ask, but if you want to help them face their storm, it's Wasilla Bible Church, 1651 West Nicola Avenue, Wasilla, Alaska, 99654. We'll put that in the news today. As far as I know, they are not asking for donations to help. They probably won't. They are not that kind of people. But should they have to?

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

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.
