Glenn Beck: Billy Mays more credible than Congress



RELATED STORY


'Infomercial King' Billy Mays dead

GLENN: I don't need all of them. Just give me one.

STU: I think his most important ad ‑‑ I'm not going to attempt to play it here. God only knows if any of this stuff's going to work. But his most important ad I believe was, of course, his attempt to do what Barack Obama's doing and solve our health insurance problem.

GLENN: Go ahead. It's not working.

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

MAYS: Hi, Billy Mays here to share with you the most important product I have ever endured, access to affordable health insurance for everyone. If you are one of the 47 million uninsured, call now. We can help. And if you are one of the millions dissatisfied with the current health insurance ‑‑

GLENN: Stop just a second.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: I think this guy ‑‑ turn that off, Stu. I think this guy is, he's absolutely more credible or was more credible than any member of congress, I really do. I get my healthcare ‑‑ that's what they should have done: Hi, Billy Mays for cap and trade. I think they should have gone down the cap and trade road. I think he should have been the pitchman for congress. Their approval ratings probably would have gone up. And you could have everybody watching TV in the middle of the night and they're like, I don't know, that cap and trade thing, I think we should try it; I saw a 30 minute commercial just last night. It was great, I couldn't sleep and I think cap and trade, I think I have to have it. And he's, already he's cut from the same cloth as Barack Obama: And if you act now, I'll also...

STU: But you must act now.

GLENN: But you must act now.

STU: Don't worry about the consequences.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Act now.

GLENN: Six payments, eight payments, whatever it is. But act now. I think ‑‑

STU: I think this is a good analogy.

GLENN: I'm just saying.


Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Now available in book stores nationwide...

STU: If you remember Al Gore spent, what, hundreds of millions of dollars on the widest, what was it, mass ‑‑ what was the wording, Glenn, of this? Mass ‑‑

GLENN: Campaign?

STU: Sort of mass ‑‑

GLENN: Indoctrination?

STU: Sure. And whenever he was doing that and he spent hundreds of millions of dollars and the polls actually went down after he did it. If Billy Mays were pitching it, not only would the approval ratings go up but they would sell a ton of Oxiclean. At the same time.

GLENN: I'm just ‑‑ hi, Billy Mays for the environment. Environment dirty? Air not clean? Use Oxiclean. I think we could do it. It would make as much sense as the cap and trade.

By the way, we have the numbers and the names of the people that voted for cap and trade. Let me just start with the eight GOPers that went ahead and said yes to cap and trade. Here are the people that you need to campaign against. Who would have thought Sonny Bono's wife would have gone bad, huh? Mary Bono Mack from California, she's done. Mike Castle, Delaware ‑‑ see if you notice a trend here. Mary Bono Mack voted yes for cap and trade as a Republican. She's from California. Mike Castle voted yes. He's a Republican from Delaware. Mark Kirk from Illinois, he's a Republican. Leonard Lance, he's a Republican from New Jersey. Frank LoBiondo, he's from New Jersey. He's a Republican. John McHugh from New York. Dave Reichert from Washington State and Chris Smith from New Jersey. Look at that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Washington State, California, New Jersey, New York, Illinois. That's where all the GOP support came from.

STU: And remember with these eight people who voted for this ‑‑

GLENN: They only needed one, right?

STU: Well, I mean, what was it, 219‑212? They needed more than one, right? The rumor is, of course, if they didn't have some of these Republicans voting for them, the Democrats would have switched which just shows you what a bunch of dirtbags all these people are.

GLENN: They said they made deals with Nancy Pelosi that said if you need the vote, I'll vote for it but if not, I'm going to vote against it which means to me throw them all out. Throw every single one of them out. But if you've been reading Common Sense, you know how difficult that is now. You know how almost impossible, because of the way both Republicans and Democrats have structured the system. They have played games. It's ‑‑ you know, we've talked about gerrymandering before and it's almost like this, "Yeah, the gerrymandering," and nobody really understands what it is. We lay it all out in Common Sense, and it is the reason why we have ‑‑ have you ever noticed it's like Bible‑thumping preachers with guns, you know, on both hips or it's on fire ‑‑ it's liberals that make ‑‑ that embarrass Jane Fonda they are so far left. How does that happen? I don't know those people. Do you? It's because of gerrymandering. Literally there are places in our country where you can ‑‑ there's a street, and half of the street is for the ‑‑ is for one congressional district and the other half is for another congressional district. Our founding fathers did not do it that way. They built the system so people would have to have a mix of people in there, it would become ‑‑ everybody would be more moderate but instead we have these sharp left and right because they've gerrymandered their district. It's almost impossible to get these guys out. And we've got to get them out. And if you look at the analysis of who voted for it, for cap and trade, it wasn't ‑‑ I mean, we have all of the names. You want to know what you need to do? You need to campaign against these people. You need to make sure that these people send a message to their colleagues in the Senate, "Don't vote for cap and trade." Now's the time to do it. Because they voted and they think you're going to forget. "Make sure they understand you're blanketing with flyers. I want you to know this is what your congressman just did." This is so critical because ‑‑ we'll get into it later ‑‑ not because of the insanity that is in this bill but the fact that it was all special interest and, more importantly, it is the structure. We've got to stop paying attention to these bills the way we've been doing it. We need to look at the structure. The power is being grabbed left and right. The system is being overwhelmed. They are not 1300 pages for no reason. They are 1300 pages with an additional 300 pages because they are burying things. What is it that they are burying? They are burying structure changes. They are taking our republic and they are changing the structure of it. They are adding new departments and new overseers, people that answer to the president, people that don't answer to congress, people that don't have to be confirmed anymore. That's what's happening. It's not just about cap and trade. Again, this is an illusion. This guy is, Barack Obama ‑‑ you know, I had somebody tell me this. I had somebody tell me this and I don't know if I've said this on the air and I don't know if I've credited him. So I better not because I don't remember how it was said to me if not at this point. But somebody who you would respect said to me, "We are looking at a president that is the closest to Thomas Jefferson we've ever had." And I said, wow, that's a slam on Thomas Jefferson. And he said, no, he understands architecture. He knows what he's doing. This guy is very, very smart. And I agree with him.

Now, I don't know if he's the architect of this, but somebody is an architect of ‑‑ this is not happenstance. There are massive changes coming our way, and people don't really understand it yet. But massive changes have happened already.

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.
