VOICE: And now it's time for... Ask Glenn Anything.

GLENN: Yes, that's right, ask Glenn anything. Our number is 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Let's go to Paul in Charleston. Hello, Paul, welcome to the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn. Hey, first off you are a great man, and I love you to death and I'm with you all the way. I think you are doing a heck of a job.

GLENN: I feel a "But" coming.

CALLER: Glenn, you there?

GLENN: Yes, I am.

CALLER: Okay, okay. I'm also an environmentalist, okay? And I want to explain something that, what you're missing when, where these environmentalists, why they are freaking out. I want to use the analogy of a cat. Anybody that knows anything about cats, you have ever seen one infested with fleas. When that last flea hits that cat, it drops the cat down. It's done. You've got to rush it to the emergency room and the vet. Whoever's gone through this, you know, understands what I'm talking about, especially with a flea infested cat.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: Here's the

GLENN: Hang on just a second, Paul. I'd just like to point out I hate cats and I don't know what you're talking about because I've never had a cat. I don't trust people with cats. But I am getting a second dog tomorrow.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I mean, I kind of think you're joking because I don't think you would use the word "Hate" to anybody. But what

GLENN: No, cats I hate.

CALLER: I love everything, Glenn. I love everything.

GLENN: I don't.

CALLER: Everything that God created, everything that God created I love.

GLENN: I don't.

CALLER: I love everything.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: What happens with the environment? When that last flea even attacks that dog or that cat, okay.

GLENN: Do you love fleas? Seriously, God created fleas. Do you love fleas?

CALLER: Glenn, I love everything.

GLENN: You love everything, okay.

CALLER: I love everything that God created.

GLENN: May I just say then you would not then put a flea collar on your cat?

CALLER: Glenn, there's differences you are not letting me finish. You are

GLENN: No, I'm just trying to understand. If you love everything like cats, but I put a cat collar around my dog.

CALLER: Everything that God created is God's creation, you know?

GLENN: So you just, you then but evidently like Jesus would do, pick the fleas off your cat and release them back into the wild.

CALLER: Well, I haven't been able to do that when I comb them out but sometimes the fleas get the better half and I got to depend on the medical world.

GLENN: Do you try to resuscitate them? I'm just trying to understand. I'm just trying to understand where the line is with you.

CALLER: Because you haven't let me finish my point of the call.

GLENN: All right. I'll try. I'll try.

CALLER: I could, I'm not afraid to resuscitate my cat. I'll do it. That's how much I love cats.

GLENN: No, not your cat. Your fleas.

CALLER: Oh, the fleas? You know what, they are hard to drown. I mean, they're tough.

GLENN: You wouldn't drown something, though, that you love?

CALLER: Well, if it's

GLENN: Do you hold the little flea head in a bucket of water? Is that what you're trying to tell me, that you comb them out of your cat and then hold their heads underwater and try to drown your

CALLER: I can't believe how much you are interrupting me. All right.

GLENN: I'm sorry, go ahead. Go ahead, caller, you are on. Go ahead.

CALLER: All right, all right. Oh, I love you, buddy, I love you.

GLENN: No, go ahead. I love you, too. I love you are one of God's creatures and I love

CALLER: You are great. You should have seen me the other night here. Okay, the last flea that bites that cat puts that cat down. It's down.

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: Now, where is the environmental freak?

GLENN: But that's okay with you because that's God's way of the fleas taking over?

CALLER: Everything

GLENN: If that's the way God wants it?

CALLER: Everything lives off of everything. We all have to survive.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: And even the minuscule spree and the minor bacterial growth around the air.

GLENN: So what you are saying is we're all parasitic in nature.

CALLER: I'm not going to use the word parasite, but we do live in a world that survives off of each other's things. Like the trees survive off of our oxygen, our CO2.

GLENN: Right. Our CO our what? What do the trees survive on?

CALLER: Okay, I heard you talk. I heard you talk about

GLENN: All right, I'm sorry. I was about to trap you, go ahead.

CALLER: Oh, no. Hey, I'm armed and ready.

GLENN: Okay, go ahead.

CALLER: Okay. When that last flea bites that cat

GLENN: Oh, good God, you are still on the cat.

CALLER: I know. Here's the problem. When the last tree is cut down on the planet, when does it affect, when does it become beyond return?

GLENN: I don't know because we're not down to the last tree. In fact, there are more trees on the planet than there were 100 years ago.

CALLER: I would refer you to a, I believe it's a 1967 geothermal shot of space of the united of the world and look at the amount of lights that have come into play. Now, with lights come

GLENN: Lights. Okay, hang on just a second. Lights, all right, we're talking about lights because I will give you, there are more lights on Earth I thought we were talking about trees or fleas. I'm not really sure. But I will give you that there are more lights on Earth than there were in 1967.

CALLER: When that last tree is cut down, when does it

GLENN: Okay, you call me back when the last tree... (laughing)... is about to be cut down.

CALLER: Billions of trees left. But when that one within that one billionth, when it starts taking environmental change, people that environmental excuse me, environmentalists I tell people I'm very familiar with the readings of biblical and prophecies and scriptures like that.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: See, as an environmentalist I tell people, you know, I'm very familiar with the readings of biblical and prophecies and spirituals like that.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: I tell people, I said, you don't have to worry about God destroying the earth, sir.

GLENN: Don't have to what?

CALLER: You don't have to worry about god destroying this Earth right now because nature's going to beat him to it if man keeps doing what he's doing because

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: We don't think like the Egyptians did where their water was pure and clean and, you know, the amount of pollutants that are going in our water and poisoning our children

GLENN: Weren't they hold on just a second. Would you agree with me that the Hindus are very spiritually aware of I mean, they don't eat cattle and anything else, right?

CALLER: The Hindus are what?

GLENN: The Hindus are very spiritually aware, in a way they are very spiritual in nature, et cetera, et cetera?

CALLER: I have not studied the Hindu culture.

GLENN: Okay. Well, you know, they are very spiritual in nature and, you know, they won't eat cattle and, you know, they believe in the circle of life, et cetera, et cetera and they also crap in the river like the Egyptians used to. So I beg to differ with you that the that maybe the rivers weren't as pure as you seem to recall them being in Egypt. They were bathing in them.

CALLER: Our food and prescription drug intake in this America is poisoning our children. And it's

GLENN: Our prescription drug intake? Is this about are we going back to the fleas?

CALLER: Well, you do use I do use a prescription drug, half the amount recommended by the vet and three times a year. People kill I mean, drugs are out there to overkill and overuse.

GLENN: Okay. So what you are recommending, doctor, is that everyone takes half of the prescription drug medicine that the doctor prescribes?

CALLER: I'll tell you what, I'm also, I'm a very healthy person.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: I'm self employed. I have a small business. I do not

GLENN: Do you take prescription drugs?

CALLER: I do not own health insurance out of my own choice because I eat very healthily. I stay away from you know, look at that video

GLENN: Let's say this. Let's paint a scenario here. You are having a tofu sandwich made with entirely organic materials and you are on hang on. And you are on your bike because you are a very healthy person, as you are eating your tofu and alfalfa sprout sandwich, all organic. You are wearing hemp biking shorts and you have no health insurance because you are a very healthy man. And I'll give that to you. I don't know you, but I'm just going to let's just go with this scenario. How is that tofu sandwich going to help you with no health insurance as you are hit by a truck?

CALLER: Okay. We're talking about an accident versus somebody's versus

GLENN: Right. But you have no health insurance because you are a very healthy person, until you are hit by the cattle truck on its way to the butcher shop for McDonald's.

CALLER: Well, I hope and pray that that guy that's driving that truck gots an insurance policy that will cover my medical payments.

GLENN: All right. So we've got hope, and change. And I think we're there. Paul, thank you very much. I appreciate your phone call.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
