Glenn Beck: Anita's husbands new job...



Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

GLENN: Oh, I am I'm sick, Pat, I'm sick of it. I'm just

PAT: Yeah. The story you kind of leaked last night on the I mean, you probably should have thought through answering the phone while you were on the air, you know? Because then

GLENN: Do you have the

PAT: I don't have can you play it there?

GLENN: I can't play it off of this.

PAT: Oh, okay.

GLENN: Let me just see if I can send this link to you.

PAT: Send it to me and then I can

GLENN: I feel so bad, I really do. Last night we put it

PAT: Just a horrible misunderstanding.

GLENN: Really is.

PAT: You know, because I would hate to see, I would hate to see something bad happen with the job opportunity. I mean, I'm sure that arrangements have been made and deals have been struck and, you know, maybe they haven't officially consummated anything but, you know, I'll bet they're putting the wheels in motion, wouldn't you think?

GLENN: No.

PAT: I mean, it's like, when we were talking about the job, you know, it started two months before it happened or whatever.

GLENN: Yeah, sure, sure.

PAT: And I started making arrangements.

GLENN: Sure, sure, maybe he sold his house or told his business partners that he was out of it. Look, here's what happened. Do you have the, do you have the audio there? Click on the audio. If I just may, if I may quote the Examiner here: Glenn Beck on his television show told viewers that he said just too much, and I did.

PAT: You did.

GLENN: I did.

PAT: You really did.

GLENN: The statement preceded a mysterious phone call that Beck answered live during his show with the message that the husband of the White House communications director and Fox News attacker Anita Dunn was getting a new job. According to Beck a huge announcement is pending regarding Anita Dunn's husband, Robert Bauer and his new controversial job. But for some Bauer's wife, Anita Dunn, is already fraught with controversy and Bauer, too.

PAT: I don't know if you said it was a controversial

GLENN: I don't think I did.

PAT: job, did you?

GLENN: No, it was going to be a big job, going to be an important job.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: It's just going to be the chief counsel for the White House. That's all

PAT: Gosh.

GLENN: I said it again!

PAT: I hope he doesn't spoil anything.

GLENN: I've got to call the White House and apologize to them. You know what?

PAT: You want me to do that?

GLENN: Would you just do that? Somebody just call. Would you just call sometime today and congratulate?

PAT: I will. Anita?

GLENN: the White House and Anita on her husband's new job there as the chief oh, I've got to stop doing that! I hope this hasn't, I hope this hasn't put because look, this guy's really important.

PAT: He's done he's already worked with Obama quite a bit.

GLENN: Quite a bit.

PAT: Quite a bit.

GLENN: Quite a bit. His law firm, he is the chair of the political arm of this law firm I think out in Los Angeles, and his law firm has already, I think have done a million dollars just since, in the last 12 months with Obama.

PAT: Oh, okay.

GLENN: And he's also, he's represented ACORN in court. So

PAT: So it would be so great for him to be with Obama now.

GLENN: Yeah. But it might cause some problems.

PAT: You know?

GLENN: Because Obama has no connections to ACORN.

PAT: None.

GLENN: So

PAT: I don't think he's even heard of the

GLENN: His chief legal counsel oh... (mumbling). Okay, I think I got it now.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: So... he's also the guy who had the firm sending threatening letters to radio stations that if you played certain ads? Do you remember that?

PAT: I do.

GLENN: That they would sue you. So wouldn't it be great if you're trying to do a hostile takeover or intimidate the media to have your

PAT: Your chief intimidator.

GLENN: Don't say it!

PAT: Sorry.

GLENN: I almost said it. Now you please.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Do whatever you have to do to remember. Don't say

PAT: Don't say that he's going to be the chief

GLENN: No, don't!

PAT: All right.

GLENN: Okay. Isn't he the guy also that wrote the letters against the NRA?

PAT: I think he is.

GLENN: I think he is. I think I have that letter in my office some place. I'll have to look for that.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Huh. Wouldn't that be great? I hope I

PAT: I hope it's still on because

GLENN: I hope it is, too.

PAT: They make a great team.

GLENN: They do.

PAT: They have done some work together.

GLENN: It'll be great. It's going to be great. It can't be true.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Because how could I possibly get that information, really?

PAT: That's why it was so weird when the phone rang last night on the show.

GLENN: And it did, right in the middle of the sentence.

Candidate here, the perfect candidate. (Phone ringing)

PAT: Listen, there it is.

GLENN: Oh, boy. Oh, boy. Telephone call. This is our hang on. This is our refounders and tip thing? Yes? Mmm hmmm.

See, right now I'm hearing, you are never going to believe who's going to be the chief legal

PAT: Done it again. Not very good at remembering.

GLENN: I'm not.

Well, I've been awfully worried about him. He's going to be okay? He didn't lose his job, I don't think. Okay. All right, thank you.

America, you are going to be excited. You know the lady who's on the other end of that phone, what's her name, Anita Dunn?

PAT: The red phone.

GLENN: But I've been so worried because I thought maybe there's something wrong. Maybe she's, I don't know, maybe who knows. So I started doing some checking on the family, and we just got a phone call from somebody who doesn't want to be known. They don't want anybody to know who they are, but they just brought me good news because I was concerned, maybe there's something wrong with the family. No, there's not. In fact, her husband, he's fantastic. We'll explain who he is, but I just want you to know

GLENN: Stop, stop, I don't want to reveal that he's going to be the chief oh! Now let me ask you this, Pat. If you were in the White House and you had a guy who because I've read it just recently again. He doesn't even have a college education. He's just a dope. He's a nobody. Where did this guy even come from? He's crazy! He's riddled with ADD. He cries all the time. We've just done a massive smear campaign on him for months, trying to show what a bad guy he was that everybody who's listened to him or read any of his books over the years know and quite frankly are sick of hearing him talk about how much of a scumbag he used to be. Anyway, who is this guy? And now we've only told a handful of people, just a handful of people. Maybe, maybe 10, all there in the White House, maybe 10! Only our best friends know it! Don't you think that maybe you might say, who's talking? Who is the leak in the White House? Whew. When you can't trust a group of revolutionaries

PAT: Boy, who can you.

GLENN: Who can you trust? When you

PAT: That would destroy all of my faith.

GLENN: When you can't trust a group of people who are only standing behind you because you've promised to shoot all the enemies in the head.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And you're like, hey, this guy's not getting the job done, I mean, he promised me one thing and then another, I mean, when you can't trust them to stand behind you even though you are screwing them and knifing them in the back, I mean, who can you trust?

PAT: Nobody.

GLENN: Nobody, I guess.

PAT: Nobody.

GLENN: Nobody. And maybe that's a good rule of thumb. They should go, trust no one. Because what you know we'll soon know, too. But don't worry. I'm really good at keeping secrets. You tell me something, I can keep it to myself.

PAT: Seriously? Because I

GLENN: Yeah. You call me up and say Anita's husband's going to be the chief legal okay, I'll get better. I'll get better at it.

PAT: See, that's what I was talking about.

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.

I can no longer relate to the modern pro-choice woman. I don’t want to shout my abortion. I want to pretend it never happened. Up until the SCOTUS leak, I had done a pretty good job of burying my 20-year secret. But the Roe v. Wade information earthquake triggered an eruption. I can no longer pretend to be ambivalent or leave it to blue-check pro-lifers to speak for me. My days of repeating the “safe, legal, and rare” mantra like a good, GenX libertarian feminist are over.

Some pro-abortion activists call their life-ending procedure “self-care,” like they just booked a hot stone massage or a facial at a spa. This is a polite euphemism many women tell themselves – not because we are cold-blooded killers, but because it’s how we survive. We HAVE to lie in order to justify what is actually taking place. Denial is a protective coating, a barrier from the truth. Remember, any woman born after Roe v. Wade has been programmed to believe that abortion is a natural-born right. “It’s legal; therefore it must not be evil. This is a medical procedure. Women do it every day.” Planned Parenthood has a nice way of describing abortion on its website: “A doctor uses a combination of medical tools and a suction device to gently take the pregnancy tissue out of your uterus.” “Gently take the tissue out.” Benign euphemisms that wrap our hearts and minds in a suffocating cocoon. Benign euphemisms to keep us in line.

I was raised in the Bible Belt and to believe that sex before marriage was the gravest of sins. You’d be better off robbing a store by pistol than to be caught fornicating with a boy. And yet I did fornicate with a boy. No boy I’d ever be proud to bring around to my parents. I never gave him the option to talk me out of it. I just demanded he pay half for the procedure and never speak of it again. I told myself it would be easier to survive the hidden shame of the abortion than wear the shame of my sin on my belly for the next nine months.

...the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job.

I took the so-called “easy” way out at six weeks along and swallowed a pill I got from some abortionist who gave me the creeps. He was no medical saint like the one portrayed in “The Cider House Rules,” nobly saving women from coat-hanger abortions. The doctor in my story made a quick buck at the expense of terrified “good girls.” Years later I would learn he kept aborted fetuses in buckets and was under investigation for shady medical practices. I couldn’t leave his clinic fast enough, but at least I wouldn’t have to miss work or skip my college classes. I could finish my degree and still make my parents proud. How convenient. But the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job. Now I had to see a real obstetrician, get an ultrasound, and deal with the aftermath.

This doctor’s office was nicer. It had bright lights and pink walls. Although my doctor was professional, I still felt the quiet judgment in her voice. I refused to look at the image of my tortured fetus on the screen. I knew what it would mean if I did – my feminist career ambitions would lose the battle to my soul if I looked at that baby. The doctor told me the fetus was still viable but likely mentally damaged. The “kinder” thing to do would be to finish the job at an in-clinic abortion. End the fetus’ suffering and end my own self-torture. I woke up from anesthesia to learn the abortion was complete. It’s over so quickly, but the internal conflict hangs. And hangs.

You find weird ways to cope. Not long after, I discovered an abandoned robin’s egg, still perfectly intact. I wrapped it in a sock and carried it with me for over a decade. If I couldn’t do right by my own child, maybe I could keep this unhatched egg safe. Eventually, I had to come to terms with the fact that the bird egg was dead, and I got therapy. He was a good New York psychologist. Secular, liberal, tolerant. He helped me to forgive myself, but I always knew who I really needed to ask for forgiveness …

It’s easy for a young woman with all those stockpiled eggs in her ovaries to be pro-choice. She can toss away the miracle of life like a rotten banana or a bruised apple because it is easily replaced. It wasn’t until I was forced to confront the mortality of my own fertility that I felt the full force of my regret.

But I do not write this letter to achieve redemption or to be the new face of the pro-life movement. You will not see me pleading with women outside an abortion clinic. You will not see me protesting with a cutesy, homemade sign at the March for Life. You will not see me sparring on Twitter, confronting baby-killers with cold, hard facts. For now, you will not even know my name. I suppose this is not very brave, but my story is not complete and God’s work in me is in an active state. Mine is a modest mission: Maybe if I’m honest about my own wounds, I can help other women like me to heal. Maybe I can love the terrified, knocked-up woman in the Bible Belt who believes the best worst lies our society has ever told, better than any conservative talk show host ever could.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound. It’s naive to think we will fix this mess for the unborn overnight and deprogram men and women plugged into 50 years of slick, well-packaged lies. Slavery was legal in the U.S. for over 200 years before we fought a war to end it. And it was another 100 years before we ended state-sanctioned racism.

When it comes to the issue of defending innocent life, I know it’s hard to be patient. This is a clear battle of good vs. evil for many on the right, but you need allies like me – the former “safe, legal, and rare” pro-choicers who are afraid to come out of the shadows. Afraid to become a political prop in the culture wars, but willing to do the quiet missionary work in our back yards.

I hope for the day future progressives look back in horror at today’s progressives fighting to keep abortion on demand. I hope for the day the New York Times publishes the pro-life version of the 1619 Project. Maybe they’ll call it the “1973 Project,” “whose mission is to reframe the country's history by placing the consequences of abortion and the contribution of the pro-life movement at the very center of our national narrative.”

Until that day, I want to help these women to be braver than me. To see beyond their impossible tomorrow. If I had allowed someone the chance to help me be brave, I might not have had the same successful career, but I would have a 20-year-old son or daughter in whom to invest this unexplained overflow in my heart.

Dear EV drivers: Think you're safe from soaring gas prices? Think again.

Diesel fuel prices have surged to record levels, adding to already record-high inflation in the U.S. But most Americans don't drive cars that run on diesel, and many have turned to electric vehicles (EVs) to avoid the ever-increasing pain at the pump. So, how would diesel supply shortages — and the resulting sky-high prices — affect you or your budget?

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck explained why every American should be concerned about the rising cost of diesel.

"Diesel fuel is the fuel that powers the economy," Glenn began. "How does that work? Well, let's start over in China. You want something from China, you have to put it onto a big boat, a slow boat from China, and that's powered by diesel.

"Then, it gets to our docks," he continued. "You know all of those big cranes and everything else that take that crap off of the ship and then put it on the ground? Run by diesel. And then the forklifts that come and pick it up and then bring it over to the train, those run on diesel. And then the train, those engines, they run on diesel. And then the trucks that get it halfway across the country from the train where they're picked up again by the forklifts, run by diesel. Then they're put into another truck, also run by diesel."

"I sure hope all the people bragging about their electric cars as gas prices skyrocket have a backup plan for their food too. Because as diesel prices go crazy, so does the price of EVERYTHING," Glenn posted on Twitter.
