GLENN: What does this ACORN T‑shirt make you feel and why does it make you feel that way?

CALLER: Well, just, I was very, very surprised when I turned it on this morning and saw you wearing it because they're destroying our country and it just, you know, it breaks my heart.

PAT: You know what Bev needs is a behavioral psychologist.

GLENN: Some sort of behavioral ‑‑

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Hang on just a sec.

PAT: Someone who can sit with her in her living room.

GLENN: Oh, wait, wait, wait, I have one. From Washington representative Brian Baird introduced a bill yesterday, H.R. 3247 that will establish a social and behavioral science research program. What would the program do? It would be set up to identify and understand social and behavioral factors that influence energy consumption to promote the utilization of the results of social and behavioral research to improve the design, development and demonstration and application of energy technologies policies and programs, and it's going to create a director of social and behavioral research.

STU: That would be helpful.

GLENN: Wouldn't that be great?

STU: That would be great for us.

GLENN: Because then we can find out what's going on with Bev and the way we can get Bev to stop with the hatred of ACORN. Just because they're different than you, Bev.

CALLER: See, I don't believe anything I hear out of any of them.

STU: Stop screaming, Bev.

CALLER: I got an e‑mail from someone this morning and it had a newspaper article from Russia.

PAT: Please use your indoor voice, Bev.

CALLER: Oh, I'm sorry. I just get very heated when I talk about it.

GLENN: See, there's the anger we were talking about. I mean, you let these kooks like Bev talk and they immediately hang themselves.

STU: Sounds like a Bev problem.

GLENN: I mean, here she is. All right, go ahead, Bev, tell us about Russia.

CALLER: See, there's a newspaper article in Russia and it's verified by Snopes how they are making fun of the United States, how we're just letting our democracy slip away and not doing a thing about it and that's just ‑‑

GLENN: No, that ‑‑ Bev, can I tell you something?

CALLER: Sure.

GLENN: You know what article I'm talking about? How old is that article, Pat? Do you remember? That was when I was ‑‑ I gave that speech at the capitol, when was that?

PAT: About three months? Three months ago?

GLENN: That's ‑‑ Bev.

CALLER: Oh, that's old news?

GLENN: That's old news.

STU: Tired old arguments of the past.

GLENN: Why are you bringing up the tired old arguments of the past?

CALLER: I'm sorry, that's my mistake.

PAT: We're talking social justice now.

CALLER: See, I guess I'm a former drinker as well. So maybe I should have a beer and I'll feel better about everything.

GLENN: There we are. See, we ‑‑ if we all just have some beers, then it will all start making sense to us.

CALLER: Oh, there you go.

GLENN: Thank you very much, Bev.

CALLER: Thank you, Glenn. Have a good ‑‑

GLENN: You know what? Look, America, you have to learn this lesson. It's going to be very hard to become sane. See, you're insane right now. You're crazy. May I just quote Winston Smith writing in his diary? With the feeling that he was speaking to O'Brien, he was setting forth this axiom. He said freedom is the freedom to say that 2 plus 2 make 4. If that is granted, all else follows. And then later Winston, for his own good was being administered a therapy session and he's crying out and he says, how can I help it? How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? 2 and 2 are 4. And he starts to cry and then the person who's just there to help says, sometimes, with Winston, sometimes they're 5. Sometimes they're 3. Sometimes they're all of them at once. You must try harder. It's not easy to become sane. That's from the book 1984. We don't understand yet, you see. You're insane. Gee, where have I read that about me? Oh, in all of the media, especially any media owned by General Electric. That's weird. General Electric? Why would the media, why would the media arm of General Electric, CNBC, NBC, why would they try to paint me in any other way? Why would they do that? Sure, sure I am a big competitor but, wow, so are you saying that just for money a competitor will try to destroy, just for the small amount of money that GE would make if they took me off of Fox News? Is that enough money to make the system, from all of MSNBC yesterday and then the Today Show and the Tonight Show. What would be their motivation for doing that? Unless maybe GE is just an extension of this administration. Unless GE is just somehow or another a propaganda arm of this government. Only because they can't make a ‑‑ they will make a small amount of money destroying me, but if they're in bed with the federal government and the administration, well, my gosh, they're in aerospace. They can continue to get all these great contracts. They're in green energy. That's fantastic. They're in broadcast you know it's pretty dicey right now if you're in broadcast. Look at all of the great things that they can accomplish for the good of humanity, for the good of the collective. Oh, you know, I've been insane, I guess. I have been insane.

STU: Do you see what's happening here? He's starting to sound like Bev, the caller.

GLENN: No, I'm waking up. That's why I'm wearing the ACORN shirt.

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."
