Glenn Beck: Frustration boiling over

Rick Santelli on CNBC

GLENN: Let me go to Elizabeth in Florida. Hello, Elizabeth, you are on the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn, first-time caller here.

GLENN: Thank you.

CALLER: Thanks for everything you do. You are really appreciated in our family. I've got two questions for you, if that's okay.

GLENN: Yep.

CALLER: What do you think about the transportation secretary Ray LaHood taxing motorists for the mileage that they drive, Massachusetts is even thinking about doing a tentative plan using GPS chips in our cars.

GLENN: Sure, I think it's the way to not raise gas prices -- or I mean gas tax and everybody will say, "Oh, well, they are going to relieve the gas tax" not knowing exactly, you know, what this means. And it's another way for the government to encourage you to take the train or ride the bus or whatever else. But it's not going to be any different other than they can raise taxes higher and higher and higher on the evil combustion engine.

CALLER: I see. And what do you think about Rick Santelli's rant on CNBC yesterday?

GLENN: Can we play this? Hang on just a second, Elizabeth. Let me see if we can play this.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: Here is the rant on CNBC. This is a trader that is on the floor, the trading floor in Chicago. Listen to this.

VOICE: Listening to it, I've been just glued to it because Mr. Ross has nailed it. You know, the government is promoting bad behavior because we certainly don't want to put stimulus forth and give people a whopping $8 or $10 in their check and think that they ought to save it. And in terms of modifications, I tell you what, I have a new idea. You know, the new administration's big on computers and technology. How about this, president and new administration: Why don't you put up a website to have people vote on the Internet as a referendum to see if we really want to subsidize the losers' mortgages or would we like to at least buy cars and buy houses in foreclosure and give them to people that might have a chance to actually prosper down the road and reward people that could carry the water instead of drink the water.

VOICE: Hey, Rick --

VOICE: A novel idea.

GLENN: Pause it for a second. This I believe is the turning point in this. I think that up until this it was a good commentary and, you know, the guy's kind of a showman, et cetera, et cetera, and he's outspoken, and this was a good commentary at this point. But this is where it goes from commentary to real. I believe this is the opening fire across the bow. When he said, "President Obama, are you hearing this," he couldn't have spoken truer words. This is the beginning that somebody in our government needs to finally pay attention. It is what I've been talking about that was coming for a very long time and that is disenfranchisement which will turn into anger and then turn into God knows what. And only the government can diffuse this by not reinjuring people. So this is where it gets real. Listen carefully. You hear the floor?

VOICE: They are like putty in your hands. Did you hear?

VOICE: No, they are not, Joe. They are not like putty in their hands. This is America. How do you --

GLENN: Pause it again. Do you hear his outrage again? Did you hear he was, "Hey, how about, you know, how about we pay for this, or how about we don't do this." And then all of a sudden he becomes outraged. You can't -- you didn't pause it? Go ahead, play it. Here we go.

VOICE: Don't want to pay for your neighbor's mortgage that has an extra bathroom and can't pay their bills. Raise their hand.

GLENN: Hear the anger?

VOICE: President Obama, are you listening?

VOICE: How about we all stop paying our mortgage. It's a moral hazard.

GLENN: That was just a trader on the floor.

VOICE: I'm getting scared --

GLENN: And media here in New York dismissing it.

VOICE: We're we used to have mansions and a relatively decent economy. They moved from the individual collective. Now they are driving '54 Chevys. Maybe the last great car to come out of Detroit.

VOICE: They are driving them on water, too, which is a little strange to watch at times.

VOICE: There you go.

VOICE: Hey, Rick, how about the notion that pointed out, you can go down to 2% on the mortgage.

VOICE: You could go down to minus 2%. They can't afford the house.

VOICE: And still have 40% not be able to do it. So why are they in the house? Why are we trying to keep them in the house?

VOICE: Mr. Summers is a great economist but, boy, I'd love the answer to that one.

GLENN: Anger.

VOICE: You get people fired up.

VOICE: Jason, you want to --

VOICE: We're thinking about having a Chicago tea party in July. All you capitalists that want to show up to Lake Michigan, I'm going to start organizing it.

VOICE: What are you dumping in this I'm?

GLENN: Stop. There you go. This is what's coming. There is going to be peaceful civil disobedience. That is, I think that is the first step. And this was the first launch across the bow of peaceful civil disobedience. If it doesn't turn the corner -- do you have the Fox dynamics poll, Stu, from yesterday? Elizabeth, thank you so much for asking about the CNBC thing, and I will tell you this will be the key. So far do you think I have this right?

CALLER: Absolutely. I'm telling you I want to go to that tea party.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
