What made Glenn want to hang himself?



Operation Porchlight

GLENN: We're bailing out states. California is now today starting to issue IOUs. I don't know about you, but I think they're good for it. New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Massachusetts, Indiana, Arizona. States on the edge. Arizona may fold tomorrow. Indiana's not far behind. New Jersey, well, New Jersey, they are turning things around because they have Operation Porchlight. Stu, I'm serious. I need somebody to teach me how to make a noose. I need rope and I need somebody to teach me how to make a noose. If I could learn how to make a noose, I may kill myself.

STU: The government won't need to ask for volunteers on this one.

GLENN: They won't.

STU: They will be flooding the ‑‑

GLENN: Send me a noose. Send me a noose so I can hang myself. What?

STU: I don't want that we want nooses sent.

GLENN: You don't want a noose sent?

STU: I don't know, I just don't know that we would want nooses sent. I don't ‑‑ it doesn't strike me ‑‑ I mean, I haven't thought it through because you just brought it up.

GLENN: Right.

STU: But it doesn't strike me as something we should do and it's one of those things that, like, with the cap and trade ‑‑

GLENN: What, you think a noose is going to go off?

STU: Think of cap and trade ‑‑

GLENN: If I had a whole bunch of nooses, for every color, every occasion, I could go, I don't know, I'm wearing a blue shirt today, give me the blue noose. And I could just hang myself with a blue noose.

STU: Like, for example ‑‑

GLENN: You want to go out fashionable.

STU: That's true. You've got to match your outfits. You've got to accessorize but you figure there's ‑‑ like yesterday we had people calling sand they called their representatives about the cap and trade bill. And they said, well, I haven't read the whole bill yet, so I'm not sure where I'm going to come down. This is the thing, I haven't thought this through fully yet ‑‑

GLENN: Send me a noose right now. Don't think it through. Send me a noose. We're going to get into all nice colors, I'd like it in different kinds of rope. Enough that I can just ‑‑ enough that I can get my feet up off the ground. That's all I need. That's all I need. Send a noose.

STU: Going to have to be ‑‑

GLENN: To the Glenn Beck program.

STU: ‑‑ strong rope.

So Project Porchlight: Change within reach. This is what's hanging now on doorknobs all across the State of New Jersey. It's a little box. "Change a bulb and save. A CFL bulb uses up to 75 less energy than old‑fashioned bulbs. Save up to $30 in energy costs. Every light bulb change means less pollution, lower cost and reduced demand for electricity which means healthier, cleaner air, environmental and public health benefits. Be the light in your community. This lamp contains Mercury." Swear to you that's what it says. And "being a light in your community" is smaller than "This lamp contains Mercury." So what it is is it's a ‑‑ this is with tax dollars. By the way, this government money ‑‑

STU: Because this comes from, what, the New Jersey Board of ‑‑

GLENN: This comes from NJcleanenergy.com, the New Jersey board of public utilities.

STU: Government entity. Because that's what the ‑‑ the overall organization is like a charity it seems like and then the ‑‑

GLENN: Oh, no. Wait a minute. You are not saying that this is a public/private partnership, do you?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Is this like ‑‑ this isn't like ACORN, which is a public, you know ‑‑ I mean a private, you know, group, just a community organization that's getting federal dollars to be able to go door to door and do things? That's fantastic.

STU: No way.

GLENN: How much, how much money are we saving in New Jersey by spending money on these light bulbs? Think of the money we're saving. This ‑‑ you know what? You know what I did this weekend? This weekend ‑‑ no, it was two weekends ago, I changed all of the fluorescent light bulbs on my front porch.

STU: You actually changed to fluorescent light bulbs?

GLENN: No, I changed from fluorescent light bulbs. I bought a smart house and then it had dumb lights in it and so I took the dumb lights out and I put the incandescent lights in.

STU: You actually went out ‑‑ because I know how work‑averse you are.

GLENN: Oh, no.

STU: You went outside.

GLENN: I did.

STU: You are outside‑averse as well.

GLENN: And I dropped one of the Mercury‑filled light bulbs and I just swept it off the porch and buried it right there by the well water.

STU: You didn't use a vacuum cleaner, did you?

GLENN: No, uh‑uh.

STU: Okay, good. Because that would kill 25 people in Bangladesh.

GLENN: I know. So why I do that. But no, I took the light ‑‑ they were all working and I couldn't take them anymore. I was tired of coming home. I had to change a couple of incandescent light bulbs because they burn out faster, use more energy, not as efficient, don't last as long. And so I had to change them, and I actually did the right thing. You know every night, you know, when I tuck my kids in, I have them give me a seal hug which, they put their arms around me and then they kind of clap their arms, you know, on my back and they go arrr, arrr, arrr, arrr. That's a seal otter. And then every night I say to them, who eats baby seals? And then they say, polar bearies. And then I, you know, I am teaching them that polar bears are bears! And they eat baby seals! Every night I do that.

STU: Right. Because most children in America right now, if they saw a polar bear, would go to hug it, then they die.

GLENN: My kids, they know polar bears will eat you and they will eat baby seals. You can't save both. So now my son is a little older now. He's 5, or about to be. So I decided it was time for some man work and I decided to teach him about the porch lights and so I said, we're going to go change the porch lights. And he said, okay. I turn the porch lights on, middle of the day, and I opened up the porch lights which, by the way, were killing a lot of bugs because I opened up the little lantern thing. A lot of bugs had died from those lights.

STU: Where's PETA.

GLENN: Where's PETA on the light bulbs? I have no idea. So I took the dead insect, the animal graveyard, and I swept that into the bushes right where I later swept in the broken Mercury bulb and I gave my son the package of light bulbs and all the light bulbs were on, but you can take fluorescent light bulbs out because they don't get hot. And my son's ‑‑ I said, these are the bad light bulbs and he said, but Daddy, they work. And I said, yes, they do. But see the way they're shaped? That's the shape of a bad light bulb. See the new ones? And he said, yes. And I said, what do they look like? And he said round. And I said, yes; what do these look like? And he said, like squiggly lines. And I said yes, like rope, and bad things can happen with rope. And so I took the fluorescent light bulbs out and I said, now, give me the good light bulb. And I put the incandescent light bulb in there. And then I told him to be very, very careful with these bad light bulbs because if you drop one, everyone might die.&nbs p; He cried a little bit after I dropped one because I said, we're immune from that; only the Earth is going to get very sick. That was my Project Porchlight. That's what I did with my spare time and my son.

STU: And he didn't cry when you said the Earth was going to get sick?

GLENN: Nope.

STU: He is your son.

GLENN: Nope. I said, the Earth will heal itself because the Earth is big, bigger than us. It would swallow us up and eat us if we would really be bad to it, and we're not ‑‑ is it swallowing us up and eating us? "No, Daddy." That's right. But who can swallow us and eat us? "Polar bears?" Yes.

STU: That story actually has more science in it than the climate bill.

GLENN: Well, there you go. So Stu, can you give me the ‑‑ did you do a two‑minute investigation on the light bulb?

STU: Yes, two‑minute investigation, Glenn.

GLENN: This is when Stu just does two minutes, just, I only give him two minutes to do the work. He's got to do a quick two‑minute investigation, see if he can find out more than what anybody in the press has found out. Here's our two‑minute investigation, Project Porchlight.

STU: Right. On the box it explains to everyone that if everyone in America changed just one incandescent light bulb to an energy‑star qualified CFL like this one in this fancy box with the rubber band, the reduction in pollution would be like taking 800,000 cars off American roads. And you might ask yourself, why would they express it like it's 800,000 cars? Why not give us some actual representation instead of some crazy number, 800,000 cars? What does that even mean? Well, there's a reason for that. Now remember, we're talking about 100% of people, 100% going along with this program, 100%.

GLENN: So would that mean about 300 million light bulbs?

STU: Well, it would be I guess probably per household. So it's probably less than that. But it's 100% playing along with this. If you remember, about 94% of people believe we landed on the moon. So you realize how difficult that would be to do. But let's just say magically we're able to do it anyway. 800,000 cars. Well, there's over 205 million cars in America, which means that if everyone did this, you'd save 0.4%, 0.4% of the emissions that come from cars in America.

GLENN: Wow. 0.4.

STU: 0.4% of the emissions that come from cars in America. Now remember, though, that cars are only about 20% of America's emissions. So now we're down to 0.08% of America's emissions. But remember America is only about 20% of global emissions. Remember this is a global problem, Glenn.

GLENN: Right.

STU: Think locally but act locally or something like that. Something like that. So now we're down to, the reason they say 800,000 cars in case you are wondering is because the other way they could say it is 0.016% of global emissions. If every household in America did what they are asking you for. By the way, that would be ‑‑

GLENN: That would what?

STU: I just can't, I can't believe in America, just in America you are talking ‑‑

GLENN: Give me the light bulb.

STU: I can't.

GLENN: Give me the light bulb. I would like you to do another two minutes.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: I'd like you to find out how much money New Jersey or the federal government is giving to Project Porchlight.

STU: Usually they don't put those things in a two‑minute access. There's a reason why they don't advertise that part of it on the front page.

GLENN: I'd like to find out onechange.org. I'd like to find out, simple actions matter. How about some transparency? I would love to know exactly how much money the State of New Jersey is giving to some community group to hand out light bulbs for free. Remember, who eats baby seals.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

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."
