GLENN: Can you get the front page of the New York Times for me, please? You know that story that we were talking about in the meeting, can you get that for me? The front page of the New York Times, they are talking about "You know what, we should watch out for our debt; there's problems. We should look out for our debt. What are we doing on the debt thing? Really?" New York Times is just covering this. And they tie it in and say you know what we really need to figure out? What do we have in common with Greece? Because what happens in Greece might happen here. You think so, New York Times? Welcome to the party.

PAT: Yeah, a lot of apparently the New York Times has decided that a lot of what Greece was doing was because it was a bunch of social programs like —

GLENN: That they can't afford.

PAT: They can't afford it, they can't afford the pensions.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And so they are collapsing and, gosh, aren't we doing some of those same things here?

GLENN: That's really weird, isn't it?

PAT: And didn't the New York Times kind of help push the New York Times thing down our throat?

GLENN: Thank you very much, Wilson. I love this. Look at this. Here's the New York Times today, in Greek crisis, some see parallels to U.S. debt woes. It's easy to look at the protests — the protestors and the politicians in Greece and the other European countries with huge debts and wonder why they don't get it. They have been enjoying more generous government benefits than they can afford. No mass rally and no bailout fund will ever change that. No benefit cuts or tax increases can change that. Yet, in the back of your mind comes a nagging question, writes the New York Times. How different really is the United States? The numbers on our federal debt are becoming frighteningly familiar. The debt is projected to equal 140% of gross domestic product within two decades. And in the budget troubles of state governments and the true shortfall is even larger. Greek's debt by comparison equals 115%. The United States probably will not face the same kind of crisis as Greece for all sorts of reasons — let me just add editorial comment here — because America is somehow different than the rest of the world. The laws of math, of finance, and the laws of physics just somehow or another magically break down at our shoreline, but I digress. But the basic problems are the same. Both countries have a bigger government than they are paying for, and politicians and spendthrift as some may be are not the main source of the problem. We the people are. We have not figured out the kind of government we want. We're in favor of Medicare, Social Security, good schools, wide highways, strong military, low taxes. Dealing with the disconnect will be a central economic issue of the next decade in Europe and Japan and this country. We're the major problem because we haven't decided what kind of government we want.

Excuse me? Ummm, yes, we did decide that. We did. We decided that a long, long time ago. The progressives have been spoon feeding us this nonsense and indoctrinating our kids. If you look at the wonders of socialism, do you know where socialism wins? There's a new Pew Research out, and I'm just pulling these off the top of my head. But it's like 51% are against socialism, has a negative context to 51% of Americans say socialism is bad... unless you're 18 to 24. 18 to 24, college students, which is so strange, college students are for it. Huh. That's weird. We're being spoon fed and indoctrinated. Excuse me, but the American people have decided. The American people, they say the government, the politicians are not the problem here. The people are. The people spoke! We said we didn't want the big healthcare! We said no! They did it anyway. The people aren't the problem. The politicians are the problem. The people aren't the problem. Did they ask you for another, what is it, a total of $30 billion for Freddie and Fannie? Did they ask you? You know they paid it this weekend. I don't remember being asked. Did they ask you if you wanted to bail out Greece? No, I wasn't asked. $1 trillion bailout. The IMF is behind this. We are 17% of the IMF. Anything the IMF gives to anybody else, that's 17 cents on every dollar comes from you. Did you vote for the IMF? Are you for the IMF? Do you know who they are? Do you know where they are? Do you know where they are located? Do you know who the president of the IMF is or the chairman of the board or the C — I don't even know their structure. Do you? 17 cents of every dollar from the IMF comes from your pocket! I mean, don't even get me started on this. That the people are the problem? The people are the problem. How about the Fed being the problem? Tell me the structure of the Fed. Tell me what it is. Tell me who the people are. Tell me — you know it's a private corporation. It's a collection of banks. Tell me who they are. Do you know? I don't. You know why? Because you are not allowed to know. It's secret. In a country, in this country it's secret to know who's printing our money, who's backing that? This is a note, a federal reserve note says it at the top of your money. What corporations are they? Which ones? Do you know that the Fed, to help out, to help out, and it's going to be a good investment for us, do you know that the Fed this weekend decided to buy Euros? They are buying Euros. As an investment. Why would we buy Euros? The Euro is going to collapse. So now the Fed, these private corporations, are buying Euros. Okay, that doesn't make any business sense at all. So what do they get out of it? Right, that's right, I forgot. I forgot. Where did we start? Crime, Inc. Money being funneled to giant corporations. The wealthy, the — I don't mean the people. Forget about the people who make, you know, $200 million a year. Forget about the people who make — the petty little Oprahs of the world. We're not talking about Oprah Winfrey kind of wealth. That's pish posh, man! Oprah's a pauper. We're talking about global... Oprah is not buying CDOs or CDS, whatever the hell, credit default swaps. She is not buying those. Who's buying those? The same people that just got the trillion dollars for Greece. They got that money. They took a trillion dollars from the taxpayers all over the world. They got that as a bailout. Now they have taken that money and some of them are now the ones who are betting on the default of Greece. So they are going to get paid twice.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

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."
