GLENN: The other thing I want to address is Sarah Palin. I will tell you that whenever somebody does something that makes absolutely no sense, they are either a genius or reckless. I don't think Sarah Palin is reckless. I don't think that Sarah Palin is stupid. In fact, if you saw the way she eviscerated David Letterman, I mean, that should tell you something about this woman's intelligence and the way she knows ‑‑ she knows how to play the game. She may not have known how to play the game before nationally. I think she went into this ‑‑ well, I know she did. She went into this whole thing with the same crazy belief that I had that people are genuinely ‑‑ generally good. Well, that is absolutely true in the regular world. But when you get into the media and to politics, not ever. You have to assume the exact opposite. These people are dirtbags and if one of them surprises me, that's great.

Somebody wrote to me on vacation and said, you know, what do you think about Sarah Palin, you know, would you endorse Sarah Palin, blah, blah‑blah. No, never. Not because of any other reason than these people have betrayed me and what I believe and what they said they believe over and over and over and over again. I don't believe any politician. However, with that being said if I had a gun to my head and had to pick one, I think I would pick Sarah Palin. Does that mean she is who she says she is? I don't know yet. But I know she's not who the media says she is. And who the media says she is is stupid.

Let me tell you something that went through my mind when I heard about Sarah Palin resigning. The first thing was, whoa, what is that all about? Is there another scandal, is there ‑‑ but I just heard the news and I'm noodling in my head, what is that all about. Then I read her speech, and I know people are saying, "That doesn't say anything or really..." yes, it does. It says an awful lot. I think ‑‑ and I don't know this, but I think that Sarah Palin has a similar world view of mine, and going this far. I said to you I don't know how many months ago, do you remember when something was in my head and it just kept ‑‑ I just kept thinking it over and over and over again and I said on the air, "I don't even know what this means yet," but I do now. The paradigm is about to shift. I didn't know if that was in my personal life, in my business life, in the country, in the world. I didn't know what that meant. I do now. The paradigm is about to shift. Everything you thought you could trust, you can't. Everything you thought was solid is not. Everything you thought was working does not.

Now we're at the beginning of this shift of the paradigm, but I believe Sarah Palin understands that and she understands that the two‑party system, whether it's in two weeks, two years, ten years, I don't know, but the two‑party system either has to correct itself which would be a major purge, or the two‑party system is broken forever. I think she knows that. I think what Sarah Palin was saying was ‑‑ or what she senses is, get out of the system. This is another thing that it became very clear to me as I was reading several things this ‑‑ and just letting things distill: Get out of the box that everyone else has created. Get out of the system. We are in this little box and we think we have to do things in this box. "Well, that's crazy. You'll never be able to do ‑‑ you've got to play by these rules." Why? These rules don't work. These rules are broken. These rules have been corrupted and they have been set up now for other people to win and an outsider never to win. They are currently, these rules are currently painting Sarah Palin as a crazy woman, as stupid, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Fine.&nbs p; I ain't playing by your rules anymore. Do not laugh at Sarah Palin. Do not dismiss her. I could be wrong but I think she's brilliant.

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."
