GLENN: So I want to talk a little bit today about the difference between equal justice and social justice. Equal justice is really quite easy to define. If I haven't paid my taxes, I get fined and then I have to pay that fine and I can't use campaign finances to do it. If Charlie Rangel, under equal justice, if Charlie Rangel doesn't pay his taxes, he gets fined and he can then pay that fine but not by using campaign finances. Under social justice I get fined, I have to pay my taxes, I have to pay the fine, and I can't do I can't use campaign finances. Under social justice Charlie Rangel can because he's too important, he's had a tough childhood, he's somehow one way or another different than me. That's social justice.

Let's start with equal justice. If I am an illegal alien and I'm stopped by a cop, if I'm here illegally, I pay the fine, go to court; I'm sent home. Under equal justice if somebody else, Canadian, Egyptian, Chinese, Mexican is stopped by the police and they are here illegally, they are get to take it, pay the fine, go see a court and then are sent home. Under social justice, I would be sent home but somebody, because they're somehow or another different than me, they're not. That's the difference between social justice and equal justice.

PAT: One of those is in the Constitution...

GLENN: One of those is not.

PAT: Is not.

GLENN: Guess which one. This is why we have to fight against social justice as defined by those in the Barack Obama administration and those progressives. It is everywhere. The DOJ, attorney general Holder Holder, right? Attorney general Holder has come out last week and said social justice is the key. I'm sorry. Help me out with that. Equal justice is what our founders fought for and what Abraham Lincoln fought for. Arizona, be on guard. I guarantee your law is going to now be equated to a Jim Crow law. I guarantee it. It has not been yet, but if it hasn't happened by the end of the week, I will be stunned. This is going to be about social justice, not equal justice.

Let me be clear, to quote Barack Obama, on where I stand and I believe America stands on illegal immigration. If I were a Mexican, if I were a Canadian, I wouldn't be coming across the border because Canada's about to have it sweeter than we are. If I were a father of four, as I am, and I was in Mexico and I knew that the United States didn't enforce their laws and I could get free medical care, I could get a job, I could even pay taxes on that job but I could work in relative safety, I would probably come across the border because America doesn't want to enforce its own laws. They think it's a joke, too. If I could come across the border and have a chance of being made a citizen because I made it across the border with my family, I would probably come across the border. Because my country, Mexico, is melting down. My country, Mexico, is ruled by drug lords. My country, Mexico, has been doing the social justice and progressive, damn near communist thing for a long time. It's a socialist state, and most socialist states, if not all socialist states, almost always end up in massive corruption. The ones that don't end up in massive corruption are those states that have a very small government with limited power. Why bribe somebody when they don't have the power to do anything.

With that being said, it wouldn't excuse me from being here. I broke the law. I rolled the dice. No matter what my situation was, I'm sorry. That's no excuse. If we don't pay people from Cuba unless they touch the soil, why would we do Mexico? If I'm an employer well, let me just make it a regular person. If I'm in San Diego and I'm trying to get somebody to mow my lawn, I've got to believe it's a little like being here in New York and trying to get somebody to mow my lawn. I can't get a neighbor kid. I've tried. You can't get somebody like me when I was growing up, I mowed the neighbors' lawns. I earned my money by doing that. There are so many jobs here that Americans feel that they are just above that you can't get anybody to do it. So now you have a choice. Do you mow the lawn? Okay, if you have to, yes. What if you're a business and you can't get anybody to dry the dishes, collect the dishes? What do you do?

See, there are a lot of, there are a lot of issues. I don't know. Did we have the tooth fairy just show up? What was that?

PAT: Our magic muffins are done.

GLENN: I don't know what that sound was. That wasn't your computer, was it?

PAT: No, it wasn't.

GLENN: I've never heard that sound before.

PAT: That's weird.

GLENN: Can we check to see if somebody put a tooth fairy bomb in here or something? Never heard that sound.

We have many problems, and it does need to be comprehensive, but I'm going to give you a problem next that I think can be solved. I think we have a way to solve illegal immigration but not with people who are looking for social justice. But I don't think anybody crawls across our border for social justice. They crawl across our border for equal justice. You see, they come from a country where if you have juice, if you have a good story or if you have money and power, you can get justice. I don't think that's what they're looking for. I think they are looking for equal justice.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
