GLENN: Shawn, are you pro choice?

CALLER: Yes, I am.

GLENN: And you don't think, you don't believe that abortion is murder?

CALLER: I personally do. The reason I'm pro choice

GLENN: What the hell is wrong with this audience? Hang on just a second. I'm going to put you on hold so I'm not saying this to you, Shawn. Hang on just a second.

What the hell is wrong with this audience! It's okay if you don't believe abortion is murder! But if you believe abortion is murder, it's murder! I don't understand how you can make that leap!

I'm sorry. Let me go back to Shawn who I'm not going to argue with. So Shawn, you believe abortion is murder, but you should have the right to do that?

CALLER: I believe, I think we should have the right on the view of the fetus. I believe that there's

GLENN: Answer my question, please. Hang on. Let's not play loopholes here. Answer my question. You believe abortion is murder. Yes or no?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: But you also believe that people should have the right to do what you classify as murder if they choose to?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: If O.J. Simpson said it wasn't murder, would he have the right to do it?

CALLER: I didn't fully if it wasn't murder?

GLENN: No, no, no. No, no. If what you saw him do... allegedly.

CALLER: Allegedly.

GLENN: And you said, allegedly, that's murder, and you saw it as murder but he truly saw cutting someone's head off not as murder, would you give him the right to do it?

CALLER: You are saying that he says it's not murder. I still think that the people that get aborted, that have abortions think it's murder. I think they know what they're doing, just as O.J. Simpson allegedly.

GLENN: I'm not asking about them. I'm asking about you. Would you allow O.J. Simpson, would you say, well, you know what, he can do what he wants. I disagree with it, but he can do what he wants because he doesn't see that as murder.

CALLER: No.

GLENN: What is the difference?

CALLER: The difference is consciousness. Nicole Smith and Goldman, they were alive. They were conscious. They suffered at his hand. The fetus does not suffer during an abortion. I don't believe in late term abortions. I believe that you've got three months to decide. If you find out whether it's a boy or a girl, you no longer have the option. The reason I believe in pro choice is because that fetus will be euthanized without consciousness. I think of little Caylee Anthony. If she was aborted as opposed to murdered, I think it would have been better for her.

GLENN: Okay. So you're saying these are tough decisions that you can't make for everyone, right?

CALLER: That's absolutely true, yes.

GLENN: So is it okay to abort a child as they are doing now in Sweden for sex?

CALLER: No. I think abortion should be allowed but if you find out what the sex is, then you are off the list of allowed to have an abortion because

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Help me out, Shawn.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: Why? Why?

CALLER: Because I think the people that even consider having an abortion have moral problems anyway and if you bring that child to term and they keep that child, they will neglect it, they won't love it. You have children. You know how much love they need. You know they need to be nurtured. If they're not, Glenn, there's worse things than dying. I would rather

GLENN: So hold on just a second. So shouldn't it be that you are for the abortion? Because if they have the sex of the child, it's not the sex that they want, wouldn't it be better to what was it you said? Put them out of their misery or harmlessly or quietly or not letting them suffer, abort them? Wouldn't, to be consistent on your thinking here, shouldn't you be even more for people killing the child because it's not the sex they wanted?

CALLER: No. Because those people, they are going to love that child anyway. The way they think, they're going to that child is going to be in their arms like I've held my children, and you can't not love it.

GLENN: Didn't you just say, didn't you just say that somebody who is wanting that is so morally bankrupt that there are worse things than dying?

CALLER: Yes. But you are not listening to what I'm saying.

GLENN: I'm trying, but you are making my head I may have an aneurysm from trying, but go ahead.

CALLER: Well, I don't want to be the cause of that. I think that

GLENN: I might go out without any kind of suffering.

CALLER: Yeah, but I don't want the cause of it. I do want you, when you go out, to go without suffering.

GLENN: There are worse things than dying. This may be one of them.

Okay. Help me out. As I understand it I want to take a break and then you can come back and explain it, give you a couple of minutes to think.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: As I understand your position, abortion is murder. However, it's up to the individual to decide whether they murder or not. Plus, you're not allowing anyone to murder a fetus I'm using your language murder a fetus if they want to murder it for a sex reason, they wanted a female and instead they are going to have a male, and that's wrong because that child will be born but they'll have the child in their arms and they'll love it anyway. However, somebody who wants to abort a child, they'll abuse that child, neglect that child and there's worse things than dying? You try to think about that one for a second. You try to tie that altogether in one nice package for me that I can understand. Next.

VOICE: We know many of our universities indoctrinate our students with leftist ideas but three colleges stand out from all the rest as the worst offenders. Find out what they are on Page 115 of An Inconvenient Book by Glenn Beck, now available in paperback.

GLENN: I am fascinated, fascinated by our audience. I am asking people to just explain, if they're pro choice, just explain, in defense or against their position. In Sweden you can now abort a child based on sex. So in other words, you are pregnant with a girl, you want a boy, you can abort that child. Is that wrong? I'm not asking for anybody who is pro life. I got it, yes, it's wrong. I don't need the explanation of why it's wrong. You are already there: Abortion is wrong. I want pro choice people to tell me if that is right or wrong.

Now, we're on with, is it Shawn, Philadelphia. I've given you a couple of minutes to think and then explain so this all works for everybody's head.

CALLER: Okay. You ready?

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: Anybody that just wants an abortion, "I don't want this child, I want an abortion," their heart is ice and that's it. Anybody that says, oh, I want a baby but I want it to be a little boy and if it's a girl, I'll abort it. They have an ember of nurture in them because they want the child. They've just lost their way. They don't know where they're going. As soon as that baby is born and they see it, that ember of nurture will be fanned into an inferno and they can't resist it.

GLENN: Okay. So I just want to make sure. You say if you don't see the fetus as a child, your heart is ice, right?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: But if you see the fetus as a child but you want a certain kind of child, that means that your heart is softer?

CALLER: Correct.

GLENN: Okay. So one is just exterminating because they don't see it as life at all, they don't see it as a child. They are just removing a tumor from them.

CALLER: Correct.

GLENN: And that makes them ice. But somebody who sees that fetus as a child but wants a specific kind of child, so then wants to kill the child that they see as a child, that somehow or another makes them less ice like than the one who views the fetus as a tumor?

CALLER: In my opinion.

GLENN: Shawn?

CALLER: Yes?

GLENN: Do you still want to have when it was parroted back to you, do you want to say, "Okay, that doesn't work?" Because that's cool. Or do you just, do you stand by that?

CALLER: I still stand by that.

GLENN: Okay. All right, Shawn, God bless you. Thank you very much. Wait, wait, hang on just a second. One more question, Shawn. Are you there still?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: Are you making laws based on your opinion?

CALLER: Yes, I am. And to be perfectly honest with you, if it were my opinion, I would love to be benevolent dictator and there would be a lot worse consequences for people that have abortions.

GLENN: Okay, all right. Thanks, Shawn, I appreciate it.

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."
