GLENN: Hey, maybe what we could do is we could make the new recycling bins for Alexandria, for Virginia. Have you heard these? These are great. They're putting now chips into the Virginia recycling bins.

PAT: Just like they are doing in Great Britain?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: I love that.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.

PAT: I love that system. That's really good.

GLENN: So what they are doing now, this is according to Virginia. What they are doing is they are putting these chips in these new recycling bins. Cost you $9 extra, and you don't have a choice. But they are putting these chips into the recycling bins and they are not doing it to track you or anything specifically about you. They are just, they want to find out which groups of people are not recycling so they can, quote, target them. Now, when they say "Target them," I'm sure Arianna Huffington —

PAT: No, they must mean violence because that's what —

GLENN: Arianna Huffington, yeah.

PAT: What Sarah Palin meant was she was targeting people.

GLENN: Yeah. So they are going to —

PAT: Oh, my. Oh, my.

GLENN: They are going to target people and target neighborhoods that aren't the best at — this is all — I'm quoting. This is all really to help the economy. This is all — because we don't want to spend so much money in advertising. We want to be able to target specific neighborhoods and streets where people aren't recycling.

STU: Oh, so the chips are just for commercials. They just want to make sure their commercials are good.

GLENN: Exactly right. That's exactly right.

PAT: I believe that completely.

GLENN: Can I tell you something?

PAT: I don't have any suspiciousness about that at all.

GLENN: I used to live in Old Town, Alexandria. So I lived in this town that's doing this. If you would bring a chipped garbage can to me, recycling bin to me, get the hell off my land. You'd have a hard time finding that chip. "I don't know what happened to the chip. It's weird. I need another garbage — I need another recycling bin." Okay. Make sure this one has a chip in it, will you? "Gosh, I don't know what happened to that chip. That's weird, isn't it? You are putting a chip this my garbage can? Not in a million years do I take a chip." What the hell is wrong with you, Virginia? Now, it's not all of Virginia. It's just Alexandria. But what the hell is wrong with you? You deserve to be rounded up. You do, seriously. For recycling. You deserve to be rounded up and put behind barbed wire for recycling if you accept the chip in your recycle. What is wrong with you? "Oh, Glenn Beck says they are going to round people up for recycle..." oh, yes. Oh, yes. Get that right. Spell it right. Spell it right.

PAT: (Laughing).

STU: Glenn, you can talk trash about Virginia all you want but New York City —

GLENN: Say recycling.

STU: You could talk recycled materials about Virginia all you want but I mean, right now as we speak, New York City is proposing a plan to get — to reduce their waste by 15% every two years, and it's going to — they are going to do it very simply by just one package of eleven different bills to make that happen. What could possibly be in there? There couldn't be anything restrictive or —

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I was sitting at a table while Bill Clinton was yacking the other night. I'm sitting at a table with a bunch of these reporters. And a guy says to me, "Glenn, you know we need financial reform." I said, do I now? "Glenn, these... these credit card contracts, now, they're 30 pages long, some of them." I said, oh, that's great. "People can't understand that." So wait a minute. What you are saying is we're going to reform and cut down on the 30 page contracts by introducing a 2400 page bill that nobody reads.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: How is that going to help anything? That's not going to reduce the — please don't start with me on the — are you people reporters or are you — stop drinking the Kool Aid. What is that? "Yeah, I... we've got to get those things down."

I said to somebody the other day, they asked, "Glenn, do you think the American people would accept some sort of immigration reform at this point?" I said, if you can write it down in 30 pages, yeah, maybe. Maybe.

STU: That's about the length of the Arizona bill. That's about 30 pages.

GLENN: If you can do it in 30 pages, maybe. Arizona, you should be ashamed of yourself. That took you 30 pages to write? That should be one. I'm serious. One. If you can't get something done in 30 pages now in Washington D.C., don't even bring it to me. Don't even bring it to the American people. Don't bring it. If you can't get it done, you are hiding something. Period. The Constitution was on four. Four pages.

You know, I think that would be one of my first things if I was running for president of the United States, I'm not going to sign anything over 30 pages. I'm not even going to read it. I'm not even going to read it.

PAT: Which would be fine because you just wouldn't sign anything. That would be great.

GLENN: Great, not going to do that one, no. You know, I'm going to read that one tonight. I tell you I'm going to read that one tonight. Not.

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."
