Glenn Beck: Down a Czar


Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Now available in book stores nationwide...

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's March to Socialism.

GLENN: Well, it's a very sad day. I'm pretty sure you are going to see every hammer and sickle flying at half staff today because we have lost a czar. The car czar Steve Rattner who we haven't been able to interview. Nobody has really inter I think CNN has interviewed him once which was a that was very gracious of the czar to let CNN really just go after him and have him on the carpet there for a couple of minutes. But anyway, he stepped down from his post after less than six months in the position. You are going to hear all kinds of stories about how great he I mean, he's stepping down because now GM is out of bankruptcy. His job is done. Well, if his job is done, then gee, why do we have to replace him with another car czar. Rattner, whose resume just screamed, "Hey, put me in charge of the auto industry, you know, that we shouldn't be running and we don't really want to run," that's what his resume said to me, he had jobs like media advisor and New York Times reporter. Who's better to fix the auto industry than a New York Times reporter, you know? He says he's stepping down because, well, he wants to spend more time with his family. Maybe, maybe. Maybe he wants to spend more time, you know, with his family before he goes to prison. Maybe. I don't know. I don't know. He probably just is completely sincere on the more time with the kids thing. No way it would have anything to do with the SEC and the New York State investigation of the firm that he created, the Quadrangle group. You know, they were just investigating to see if there were kickbacks given for participation in a $122 billion state pension fund. But I'm sure a New York Times reporter and a media advisor turned car czar had nothing to do with that in the company that he started. So but thankfully we're not going to be down a car czar for very long because God knows this country just isn't the same when, you know, when we're not, you know, running at full czar capacity. The new man is now ready to step in and hit the ground running and you are going to love this guy seriously. You thought the New York Times reporter guy was great to fix the auto industry? Wait until you hear about Ron Bloom. Ron Bloom is well, I think he practically invented the car, you know. Much more than the experience that he doesn't have in anything dealing with automotive vehicles or industry or anything like that. This is, I think he practically invented the car. You are going to breathe a sigh of relief when you find out that we have now hired a Harvard, a Harvard business trained banker who then went right to work to head up the United Steel Workers union. So we have a union official, now the car czar with the car companies that we now own and run. But not that we want to. He didn't want to do that at all. He didn't want to take over those things. Wow, I mean, who better to figure out what to do with a government and union owned industry making cars than a government employed former union guy? I mean, this thing's fixed. We're right around the corner from just raging success. America, let me just tell you this: We are having tough times, sure, but I want you to fall to your knees every night and pray for our leaders. And most importantly pray to the ghost of Stalin for your czars because they are going to need all the help they can get.

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

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."
