Why does Glenn hate this Christmas song?

(Baby It's Cold Outside playing)

GLENN: See, maybe this is just the -- maybe this is just the negative side of me, but... I think this -- you know, stop this song for a second. Maybe it's just me but this seems like, oh, this is kind of cute. But then I heard this done by Dean Martin and Dean Martin you know you couldn't trust. I mean, he was a friend of Sinatra. You know what I'm saying? Unions, I'm just saying. So then I hear it from Dean Martin and I think, there's something here. There's something much deeper than this. Go back to the beginning. I just want you to listen to the words. Now it seems like the song, ranking the best Christmas cartoon.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Okay. Stop, stop, stop, stop. First she says, "I really can't stay." And he says, "But baby, it's cold outside." All right. So what I'm -- if I may, in other words what he's saying is, guess what, skank, put out or I'm going to leave you stranded in sub zero temperatures. You know what I mean? It's cold outside. Now, you might think that's a little dramatic, you know, right now, but may I lay the rest of the song out to provide some context. Go ahead.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Okay, okay, okay. Now here she's saying, "I really can stay." She's trying to politely get out of there: I've got to go away, you know? That's what she says, "I've got to go away." When was the last time you said, "I've got to go away" to somebody who was, "No, you just stay with me." "I've got to go away." You don't say "I've got to go away." And she says, "The evening's been so very, very nice." She's trying to act like nothing's wrong and excuse herself. Right? "I've got to go away. The evening's been very, very nice." And then what does he tell her he's going to do? Listen to this.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Stop just a second. "Holding your hand," that's a sign of affection, right? Holding your hands, that's restraint. That's a form of imprisonment. Then she says....

(Music playing)

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. She says, "My mother will start to worry and my father will be pacing the floor," which is exactly the thing that a hostage says. "If my contact doesn't hear from me, they are going to come looking." And then what does he say in response? Listen to this.

(Music playing).

GLENN: Stop. See what I'm saying? You didn't catch it? Let me tell you something. You are never going to work for the FBI unless you follow along. You've got a hostage situation. He's holding her hands. She's saying, "Somebody's going to come for me. They know where I am." And then he says, "Listen to the fireplace roar." In other words, I'll burn you alive if you don't stay and put out. That's what I'm hearing here. Oh, how did we miss this our whole life? Then she decides it's escalating too fast. Listen to what she says.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. So she decides it's escalating out of control. "Well, okay, then maybe just one more drink. Just one more drink." And then he distracts her. He says, "You put on some records." First of all, who plays records anymore? Serial killers. She says, "Okay, maybe half a drink more. Maybe just half a drink." And he says, "Yeah, put on some of those records while I pour." So now he's set up to pour the drink while her attention is elsewhere. What does he do? He drugs the drinks. Hello! As evidenced by what she says next.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Stop, stop, there it is, your Honor. "Say, what's in this drink?" Then she says....

(Music playing)

GLENN: "I wish I knew how to break this spell." Say, what's in this drink? I wish I knew how to break this spell. In other words, "I think I just ingested a date rape drug. I'd like to stop the effects right now. He's going to burn me to death. Mom, Dad!" In the middle of it he says....

(Music playing)

GLENN: Okay, all right, all right. He says, "Your eyes are like starlight now," clearly the effects of GHB kicking in now. And then he says, "I'm going to take your hat." Yes, at her most vulnerable moment, he begins to take her clothes off. Then she says....

(Music playing)

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait. She says, "I ought to say no, no, no," but she can't. Why? Because she's basically paralyzed now laying next to the fire where she's terrified he's going to burn her to death, and he mockingly says, "Mind if I move in close?" This is a horror movie! Knowing she can't resist, she takes solace in the fact that she at least has tried to stop his advances. And then he says....

(Christmas music playing)

GLENN: "I know, I can't, but I'm drugged, at least I can say I tried." Okay, look. I mean, the song -- stop it. We should never play this again. It's the Nightmare Before Christmas. You know, it just goes on and on and on, you know, "I simply must go." The clear answer is no, yet he keeps coming and coming and coming.

You know what this is? This is the story of the guy that Dog the Bounty Hunter arrested in Mexico. Oh, the welcome has been so nice and warm. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. That warmth is, you know, the warmth that GHB induces. You see what I'm saying? Your lips look delicious. Oh, I bet they do, Hannibal the Cannibal. I get it. Put out or you're going to find yourself in an icy grave. Merry Christmas. Is that too -- is it just me?

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."
