Glenn Beck: Common Sense - never use email


Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Now available in book stores nationwide...

VOICE: And now another scenario in which common sense was clearly not applied.

GLENN: Okay, we had both Mark Chertoff and John Ashcroft on the air over the years and both of them said the same thing: We never use e-mail. Nobody -- if you knew that e-mail never went away, you would never use it. That was their quote. Common sense, especially if you are a politician, for a number of reasons. But if you're a politician who is cheating on their wife in Argentina, it's really a little more than just common sense, isn't it in here's some of the e-mails. Do we have any romantic Barry White music? He writes, "Beloved, back to you. Got back an hour ago to civilization and I'm now in Columbia after what was for me a glorious break from reality down at the farm. No phones ringing and tangible evidence of days labors. They have started every day by 6:00 this morning."

What are you playing? I don't know if this is really romantic music. This is by a group named Hot Chocolate. It's called You Sexy Thing. Stop. You're ruining the mood here. This is not good.

"Though I started every day at 6:00, this morning I woke at 4:30. I guess since my body knew it was the last day, I went out and ran the excavator with the lights until the sun came up. To me, and I suspect no one else on Earth, there's something wonderful about listening to country music playing in the cab, air conditioning running, and the hum of a huge diesel engine in the background." This guy already, this guy's making Al Gore cry.

The tranquillity that comes from being in a virtual wilderness of trees and marsh, the day breaking in vibrant pink coming alive in the morning clouds and getting to build something with each scoop of dirt.

Okay, I think this is the courtship period. This is before he's had a slice of that pie. You know what I'm saying? He's trying to look poetic and he's like, I don't know, I drove a tractor all day, what can I write about?

STU: There's nothing more poetic than heavy farming and excavation in detail.

GLENN: Mmm-hmmm. So then it gets down. Now we're getting down to some business here. It says, "Sweetest, one, the travel schedule is about to get real, real busy. Two, unfortunately all the feelings you describe are mutual. And three, where do we go from here? The following weekend I've been asked to spend out in Aspen, Colorado with John McCain which has kicked up the whole VP talk all over again in the press back home. Do you really comprehend how beautiful your smile is? Have you been told lately how warm your eyes are or how softly they glow with the special nature of your soul?"

STU: This is right from VP talk into how special her glow is?

GLENN: No, it's -- my getting here came as no small measure because I had a foundation of love and support so critical to getting up in the morning and feeling you could give and risk because you already had a full tank of love and the emotional bank account.

Since our first meeting there in a wind swept somewhat open air dance spot in Punta del Este, -- 

STU: Did he say emotional bank account?

GLENN: Yes, he did. And a windswept, somewhat open air dance spot as well.

STU: Men are so stupid. They are the dumbest creatures ever.

GLENN: I felt you had the same rare attribute. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificently gentle kisses or that I love your tan lines or the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of holding yourself or two magnificent parts of yourself in the faded glow of the night's light. But hey -- 

STU: Wait, wait. Say that one again. Wait, what was she holding?

GLENN: She was just holding two magnificent parts of herself that faded in the glow of the night's light. But he continues, but hey, that would be going into the sexual details we spoke of at the steakhouse at dinner. I mean -- 

STU: Over the wedge salad.

GLENN: Would you like some pepper? As I have said to you before, I certainly had a special feeling about you from the first time we met, but these things were contained, and I genuinely enjoyed our special friendship and comparing of all the too many personal notes and, yes, this is true even if you did occasionally tantalize me with sexual details over the years -- I added the tiger sound there myself. PS: I don't want to put the genius -- I think he meant Genie here because he said, I don't want to put the genius back in the bottle.

STU: That's smooth, governor, smooth.

GLENN: You know what it is? Hey, he's drunk on the wine of love. Because I truly believe -- I don't want to put the genius back in the bottle because I truly believe in freedom. Yeah, he's gotten -- he's been sucking something else out of the bottle. I never gave you sexual details but now you don't need to imagine. You can close your eyes and just remember, and I'll do the same.

STU: Just in case you weren't sure I was having an affair, let me spell it out in an e-mail.

GLENN: For anybody who might be reading this in the press, here's her address. Here's a picture of the two of us doing it on the beach. I mean, who goes to Argentina? Who goes? I mean, maybe it's just me, but I don't even know. Argentina may be the friendliest country in the world to us but doesn't it just sound like it's an enemy? I mean, doesn't it sound like it's one of those countries that you're like, "I don't know." Isn't that where the Germans went to after the Nazi thing where they're like, "Quick, let's go to Argentina!"

VOICE: Next time try applying some common sense directly to the forehead and if that fails to solve the problem, read Glenn Beck's new book, Common Sense: The Case Against an Out-of-Control Government. Get the details at GlennBeck.com.

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."
