Glenn Beck: Obama's principles not matching policy

GLENN: Our new Supreme Court, our new Supreme Court pick has been named as a progressive, Biden's chief of staff Ron Klain told reporters yesterday, she is clearly a legal progressive. She's someone whose scholarship has won praise from both the progressive side and those on the conservative side... of the progressive movement. She comes from the progressive side of the spectrum. There's no mystery to the fact that she is, as I said, more a progressive than not. Oh, good.

Let me ask you this question: Here's somebody who has known Barack Obama, taught in Chicago, comes from the Chicago clan, comes from the same group of people. Now, we are told that this group of people loved the fact that they are going to close down Guantanamo, that you can't hold people without a trial. In fact, we are told that their principles are so strong on this, that they are so adamant about this that they will close down Guantanamo, move people to a Chicago suburb, to a prison there so we no longer have Guantanamo, and we will try some of these people not in the court of justice from the military. No, no, no. We will try them in New York City because everyone deserves a fair trial. That is their principle. If that is the principle, why would Barack Obama nominate somebody who said way, way, way back, about 90 days ago, when she was the nominee for solicitor general that someone suspected, someone suspected of helping finance Al Qaeda should be subject to battlefield law, which is indefinite detention without trial. Her words, not mine. Even if captured in a place other than a physical battle zone.

Hang on just a second. Your principles of this administration is that we don't hold people indefinitely, that everyone deserves a fair trial, even those caught on the battlefield. And yet our new Supreme Court justice nominee said just as she was being cleared for solicitor general, she said that if you are suspected, suspected of financing Al Qaeda that you could be held indefinitely without trial. Help me out on that one.

I believe we have a Supreme Court nominee, I believe we have a president of the United States, I believe we have a senator in Joe Lieberman, I believe we have a lot of people that are now going on guilty, of American citizens, guilty until proven innocent. This is one of our chief building blocks. Why did I come out and say last week "We must read him his Miranda rights; he's an American citizen"? Why did I say that? Why did Jon Stewart and everybody else on the left, Rachel Maddow, come out and say Glenn Beck seems to be the sane one on this issue, but no one is questioning. Where is the outrage on the other side?

Okay, so they pointed out that I was sane on this, but where are they pointing out what is happening? Let's not make this about Al Qaeda. Let's make this about — because it's really about terror really, isn't it? Al Qaeda's just the chief terror organization. Or is it? Remember this is an administration that doesn't even believe that we're in war. When they came, we're not even at war. We are in the, what is it, the —

PAT: It was the Overseas Contingency Operation.

GLENN: Overseas contingency operation, that's right. Overseas contingency, we're not even at war. They come out and they defend: Let's not jump to conclusions. Fort Hood: Let's not jump to conclusions. So now they are pushing for if you finance, if you are suspected of financing, held indefinitely without trial. A citizen.

Now let's see who they do think they are at war with. Well, we know that as soon as Barack Obama got in, Missouri had a study, a report that came out that said you could be in a possible terrorist organization if you are a — you have a snake flag, if you have a Ron Paul bumper sticker.

PAT: Pro life.

GLENN: If you are pro life. You may be part of a movement of some sort of a terrorist organization.

GLENN: Now, let me ask you this. Let's say you write a check to the tea party and Timothy McVeigh somehow mysteriously comes back from the grave and blows a building up, and on his desk is, "Hey, I want to go to that tea party thing next week." Do you really believe that someone in our government wouldn't try to make the case, do you really believe that the media wouldn't make the case for them that the tea party movement is now a terrorist organization because some whack job out of their mind blew up a building? What if you wrote a check? Could you be taken off the streets? Could you be held indefinitely without trial? Nobody wants to think these things. We have gone from a country where we all said to each other, "Okay, I don't like the PATRIOT Act, but we need something." Okay, all right, but we have Sunsets in it. We've gone from an administration who says they are against the PATRIOT Act; the first thing they are going to do is shut down Guantanamo, reverse the PATRIOT Act, make sure — Barack Obama campaigned: We no longer will just scoop people up off the streets because they're Muslim. We never have! Now, those are their principles. We've seen their principles in action when it comes to terror overseas, part of the contingency operation. We see how seriously they take that. They don't. So why are all of their legal actions going so far beyond the PATRIOT Act which, by the way, they didn't repeal; they took the Sunsets out of. Why? I don't have an answer, but until things make sense, stand guard, America. Stand guard. This is your new Supreme Court justice nominee who said this about 90 days ago. You have an effort in congress to take away the rights of citizens if suspected. If suspected. Excuse me. Innocent until proven guilty. You are on the battlefield? I got all the information I need. You're a citizen in the United States and now we're not talking about holding a gun or anything else. We're talking about writing a check. I don't think so.

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

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.
