Glenn Beck: Obama's new strategy

GLENN: White House advisors promise a quicker, more aggressive response to GOP attacks on the president and his policies. Well, looks like I better start wearing a vest. They noted that the White House advisors have pushed back hard against Republican accusations that the FBI mishandled interrogation of the man accused of trying to bomb an airliner on Christmas Day as Biden did on Sunday. Oh, good. So they are going to unleash Biden. I'm sorry. I'm trying to act afraid of Joe Biden. (Clearing throat). That terrifies me. I don't know, but I I don't know about you, but he's such a, he's such a credible attack dog. He really, he's frightening.

PAT: It's the hair plugs, I think.

GLENN: Is that what it is?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Hair plugs for men?

PAT: They're scary.

GLENN: Yeah. Let's see. What is the the third change is a return to the backdrops for Obama and aides considered so effective during the presidential bid.

You've got to be kidding me! You've got to be kidding me! Their third plan is a backdrop. The image of Obama standing in the diplomatic room surrounded by men in dark suits will be replaced with a more relaxed president in crowds. Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh! Can we go find the radio or television show where I was hammered by who? The New York Times for saying I'm tired of these politicians using people as a backdrop? Do you remember that show? And I got hammered. How dare he says you should... (mumbling). This is their third step! Scenes of a more relaxed president, the crowd around him. That's their third communications strategy. And finally aides said it was recognized inside "The West Wing" that Obama had strayed from his most successful message of the campaign: That he was going to be an agent of change. Yes. Sounds like a winning strategy. Hmmm, I'm this close to turning now on healthcare. I'm this close to thinking wait a minute, hang on, he's got a backdrop of people behind him. He says he's an outsider. He's for change. If they could just club anyone who dislikes him over the head with a baseball bat, I'd be in! There is a fundamental misunderstanding of what this country is. There is a fundamental understanding. This guy's been knocking on doors for ACORN too long. I don't know who he thinks the American people are but we're not this.

I had dinner last night with one of the richest men in the world who shall remain nameless. It was one of the most depressing dinners I've ever had. I wish I could, I wish I could share it with you. Come on, who wants to get onto the misery boat? Come on, everybody! It was one of the most depressing dinners I've ever had. This isn't a guy that this is not a political guy and I don't I think, I didn't ask him but I think he wouldn't have been voting for anybody that I voted for in the last 20 years. He's just beginning to really wake up. He doesn't really even watch the show. He barely knew who I was. I spent I, like, got there at 7:00. When I looked at my watch, it was 10:30 and we were still sitting around the table and having a discussion. He said to me, it's over, I mean, it's just over. He said, I don't care. This is a Rockefeller, if you will, the Rockefeller of our day. I said my kids are going to be taken care of. I got my money. They are taxing the rich. They are not taxing me. He said, you know, the businesses that I've created, they're going to suffer, the people are going to suffer. He said, but I don't see an out here. Nobody will tell the hard truth. Nobody will say to the American people what's coming and what has to happen. And what has to happen is tax cuts and spending cuts. Even Reagan, as he pointed out, didn't do that. They don't talk to you about that. They won't talk to you about spending cuts. He said we have massive issues. He thinks maybe we have a year. My deep throat says same thing. My gut tells me same thing. We must, must, must prepare ourselves and immerse ourselves in things that are real. I asked him, I said, so, you know, how do you preserve any kind of wealth? He said, I don't know. I've been trying to figure that one out. I said, well, what does the average person do? I don't know. I'm trying to figure that one out. I said, well, my suggestion has been that people should, like June in 1935. He looked at me across the table and said, I think you're right. Education and putting yourself in a position to where you are not dependent on anyone. The world's about to change, gang, world's about to change and it could go one of two ways. We have to unite and be a positive force.

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."
