GLENN: Now, Nancy Graham, the hybrid of Nancy Pelosi and a senator that I used to respect, Nancy Graham from South Carolina has decided that he is on the cap and trade bandwagon. He's been there for a while and he says cap and trade is over as we know it, but we still have to regulate carbon. Now, I'll give you the source here in a second so you can dismiss it. But a source has released today that if Obama's carbon tax passes, gas you ready for this? gas will be $7 a gallon.

PAT: Oh, thank you, ExxonMobil. Please.

GLENN: No, it wasn't

STU: No, I think it was Sunoco actually who did that.

PAT: Sunoco? Was it?

STU: No, no. Hess, it was probably Hess.

GLENN: Guys, guys.

STU: BP?

PAT: Could have been Shell.

GLENN: No.

PAT: I suppose.

GLENN: It was Harvard.

PAT: Harvard Gas and Oil?

STU: Company? I've never even heard of that.

PAT: I haven't, either.

GLENN: Harvard University. You know the president went there? Harvard just did a study and said America, prepare for $7 a gallon gasoline.

STU: Wasn't one of the wasn't Larry Summers, the chief economic advisor, president of that university at one point? Wasn't he?

GLENN: I don't know. I just know that they had somebody there recently that hated women or something. I just remember that story.

STU: That's I remember that, yeah.


The Nancy Graham hybrid...

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So we can discredit them. So we have that going for us. $7 a gallon gasoline. And today the president is coming out with his latest healthcare plan. Can I ask a question? Does anybody else sense fatigue in the American people? On this particular issue? Do you think that they're just wearing us out on this?

PAT: I think they're trying to.

GLENN: I do, too.

PAT: This has gone on for almost, almost a year now. I know I'm tired of hearing about it.

GLENN: So do you think that works to their favor?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: I do, too.

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: I think I just, my gut tells me that the American people are like, okay, that's fine. Whatever. My gut tells me, not the real, not the people who are listening to talk radio but the average person who's like, okay, enough, whatever, okay, good, yeah, you got a Republican idea in there. We'll just save all the money by letting the Republicans die; I'm good with that; let's go.

PAT: It's like when your kids keep hounding you for something they want. "Please, can I please have it?" "No." "Please, please could I have it?" "No, you can't no, not until after dinner." "Please, just let me have it? Please, can I? Why can't I have it?" "Because it's not good for you and you haven't eaten dinner yet." "Please, but please can I just have it?" "No." "Can I just have it, please? Can I have one bite?" "No!" "Please? I just want this one little thing, just one..." "Okay! Here, you little brat!"

GLENN: Then your wife says, "Why would you give that to them? Why would you do that?"

PAT: To shut him up!

GLENN: I couldn't take it anymore! It's been going on for an hour. I couldn't I gave in. I just couldn't take it anymore. I think that is what's going on.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Stu, does your gut say this? Do you think people are, "Okay, all right! I just..."

STU: I don't think so. I mean, you know

GLENN: I hope not. I hope not.

STU: Just giving in after all I mean after all

GLENN: No, no, I'm not talking about us. I'm talking about you are going to see the because what is it? 56% are against it?

STU: Something like that, yeah, 56% seems like a general theme that's been going through the polls forever.

GLENN: So 56%. (Laughing). I'm sorry. We have to just because now we have the Insider Extreme and so people are seeing everything that's going on. I have to explain this. About this time every day, I just get a case of the yawns. I just, I get sleepy right when we go on the air. And I'm just

PAT: I have never seen anything like it quite honestly.

STU: It's only started the last couple of weeks.

PAT: I know, I know.

GLENN: And I'm just so sleepy. And I start and I'm just like... "I'm so tired," and I don't know. The big long pauses that you've been hearing in the last two weeks are me yawning. I've tried to work through it, I've tried you know, I'm yawning and I'll be like, "And so anyway, what our president has said," hoping that you don't notice. You notice. I'm sorry.

STU: If you go back and deconstruct the last sentence I had, it was like four times the length that it needed to be?

GLENN: Because I was yawning.

STU: Because he was yawning and I just realized, I've got to cover. 56% is about the average polls that needed to be calculated in the past three to five weeks. Like, why was I talking that much?

PAT: "Yes" would have sufficed. Yeah, it's about 56.

GLENN: If I had universal healthcare, I could have this looked into.

All right. So we have universal healthcare that they're going to jam through, we have cap and trade now that Nancy Graham is working on, Lindsey Graham's well, I had's Lindsey Graham in a dress. We have cap and trade coming. $7 an hour $7 a gallon gasoline according to Harvard. And now we have the FCC coming out yesterday and saying we need how much? $15 billion?

PAT: 25, $25 billion.

GLENN: We need $25 billion. Why? Because the poor need broadband.

PAT: Do you know that 4% of our country doesn't have access? To broadband Internet?

GLENN: Broadband?

PAT: 4%. How can the greatest nation on Earth not give access to all Americans?

STU: Is that true, 4%, or are you just making that up?

PAT: 4%, no, that's what it says.

GLENN: Not just Internet. High speed Internet.

STU: You are saying access. Do you mean paid access?

PAT: Well

STU: You are saying that people need to pay for that access?

PAT: Yes.

STU: Wow.

PAT: Because even in the hills of Tennessee or the Appalachian mountains or whatever, you can still get that satellite broadband thing they have.

STU: Right. So what's the 4%?

PAT: I guess it's people who can't afford it.

GLENN: People who live with desert owls in cacti. They could get access if they paid for it.

STU: I'm sorry because also you have the cellphone broadband networks now. Which I mean, you're in a like you have to be in a place that has, in the middle of nowhere and also has too much tree cover for satellite, right?

PAT: Right.

STU: Of course you could cut the trees down.

PAT: No, you can't cut the trees down.

STU: That would be crazy.

GLENN: Okay, look, here's the thing. You've got to be kidding me. $25 billion for broadband access for the poor? It's called a library. It's called a bookstore. "I can't go to book..." go to the library!

PAT: There are some library bookstore deserts in this country just as there are some food deserts.

GLENN: Wholesome food deserts.

PAT: Not food but wholesome food deserts, fresh produce.

STU: You mean like in LA?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I don't even understand what this country is turning into anymore. We've got a you know what this is? This is the reason why my former sister in law who I just love to death, Yvonne Donnelly, she is just the best, she used to be a liberal, I mean a flame throwing, "Get out of my way" kind of liberal, okay? "You've got to help the poor" kind of person. She used to be a social worker. She couldn't take it anymore. She did it because she felt it. She was like, you know what? We've got to help people. She got into social work. The last day of her social work, she was sitting in a guy's home and he said, "Hey, there's a big concert coming up and my birthday, and I was wondering, you know, can you get me tickets for..." she said, no, I can't get you tickets for a concert.

STU: Universal tickets?

GLENN: Universal tickets. And he said, well, but it's my birthday and I thought maybe

PAT: There are some people in this country without access to Michael Bublé.

GLENN: Okay, here it is. That wasn't even what made her that was like, "What?" Okay? But what made her walk was he said, "You know, it's just been a really tough month for us. I almost had to cancel my HBO."

PAT: No way.

STU: No.

GLENN: You almost yeah.

STU: That's too low. This country can't sink to that level.

GLENN: She said, "I don't have HBO." She got up and she walked out and she quit.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That wasn't even her turning point. She was just like, well, I can't do that anymore because that system doesn't work. Her turning point was finally September 11th and then she was like, she was actually saying she was watching the television. Her husband's more like me. She was watching television and she said, "How did this happen?" Not a good thing to say to your husband if he's like me. Because he just wheeled around apparently and said, "Because of crazy people like you!"

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: (Laughing). And it took her about two days before she went, "I think you're right. I think you're right." So anyway, I can't you know, we don't need universal access to high speed Internet.

 

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
