GLENN: Here is our chief law enforcement officer from the DOJ talking about the Arizona bill yesterday in a hearing.

CONGRESSMAN POE: concepts that you haven't read the law. So can you help me out there a little bit, how you can make a judgment call on that but you haven't read the law and determined whether it's constitutional or not?

HOLDER: Well, what I've said is I've not made up my mine. I've only made the comments that I've made on the basis of things that I've been able to glean by reading newspaper accounts, obviously, television, talk to the people who are on the review panel.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

HOLDER: Or on the review team that are looking at the law. But I've not reached any conclusions as yet with regard to it. I've just expressed concerns on the basis of what I've heard about the law. But I'm not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with the people who are doing the review exactly what my position is.

PAT: That is unbelievable.

GLENN: Yeah. You know how many pages it is?

PAT: The Arizona law? Yeah, 16. Pretty tough reading.

GLENN: I know. I don't know when I would find time to read 16 pages.

PAT: No, please.

GLENN: I would you know what? If I were the chief law enforcement officer of the United States of America, I would definitely not read 16 pages. I would read accounts from the newspapers and from the press. No, wait a minute, now I'm confused because the president told me not to do that because there's a lot of misinformation out there in the press. How do I know what's true and what's not? The president told me I couldn't know what was true, what was not. I should go to the original source. But then again, it's 16 whole pages. I should just make a statement.

PAT: And he did.

HOLDER: It's certainly one of the concerns that I have that you will end up in a situation where people are racially profiled and that could lead to a wedge drawn between certain communities and law enforcement.

PAT: It's going to lead to racial profiling. If he had read the bill, he would know it specifically prohibits racial profiling.

GLENN: No, but he doesn't have time to do that.

PAT: I know. It's 16 pages.

GLENN: He's right now, what he's doing right now, and I want to make it very, very clear because it sounds like that the Department of Justice would come out and they would — well, may I quote the president: I don't have any of the facts, but the police are acting stupidly. It sounds to me like we have somebody else in our government that has predisposed viewpoints on just about everything, and they don't need any more facts. They just know. And it sounds to me like he might be flippant, but that's not true. That's not true, and I want you to know that. He's busy. Right now he's busy hunting down those Islamic terrorists. Right now he's in court and he is fighting hard for no right to privacy in your e mails. But it's only for Islamic terrorists. It's not for you, America, just for Islamic terrorists. Sure, they can be American citizens. Sure, they can — they're fighting now for the tracking of your location, but not you. Islamic terrorists, those jihadists that are after us. He's so busy right now fighting to take away the Miranda rights of those jihadists, those Islamic terrorists. Not you, definitely not you. Definitely, definitely not you. Because he knows, he knows what we're up against. He knows what we're fighting against. He knows that there's a war on terror. "We don't call it a war on terror. It is a contingency..."

PAT: It's an Overseas Contingency Operation.

GLENN: Yes, but it's almost, it's this close to war because those jihadists that are coming after us. In fact, let me play this audio for you now from Eric Holder.

CONGRESSMAN POE: And in the case of all three attempts in the last year, the terrorist attempts, one of which was successful, those individuals have had ties to radical Islam. Do you feel that these individuals might have been incited to take the actions that they did because of radical Islam?

HOLDER: Because of?

CONGRESSMAN POE: Radical Islam?

HOLDER: There are a variety of reasons why I think people have taken these actions. It's — one, I think you have to look at each individual case. I mean, we are in the process now of talking to Mr. Shahzad to try to understand what it is that drove him to take the action.

CONGRESSMAN POE: But radical Islam could have been one of the reasons?

HOLDER: There are a variety of reasons why —

CONGRESSMAN POE: But is radical Islam one of them?

HOLDER: There are a variety of reasons why people do these things. Some of them are potentially religious —

CONGRESSMAN POE: I'm asking why you think among those variety of reasons radical Islam might have been one of the reasons that the individuals took the steps that they did.

HOLDER: Well, you say radical Islam. I mean, I think those people who espouse a version of Islam that...

PAT: Ah, oh. So not Islam, not radical Islam but people.

HOLDER: I don't want to say anything negative about a religion.

CONGRESSMAN POE: I'm not talking about a religion. I'm talking about radical Islam. I'm not talking about the general religion.

HOLDER: Right. And I'm saying that a person like Anwar Awlaki, for instance, who has a version of Islam that is not consistent with the teachings —

GLENN: Listen — stop for a second. Listen to how far these people will go.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: To defend radical Islam. There's no even, there's no such thing as even radical Islam to him! There's not even anything that is radical Islam: No, no, no, no, no —

PAT: They are just radical tea party members.

GLENN: That's what they are. When you boil it down, they are just mad at the government, and it has nothing to do with anything. Look at how far. Yet these are the people that are already accusing tea partygoers of violence and being KKK members. So don't tell me — oh, boy. You know, I — Bill and I had it out last night. Bill O'Reilly and I had it out. You'll see it tonight. I can't believe. I love Bill O'Reilly, but I can't believe how naive this man is. I may have called him a pinhead. I may have. I may have called him a pinhead.

PAT: I've got to see that tonight.

GLENN: I can't believe how naive he is. He brought up the Miranda rights: Well, that's wrong because they are just, you know, they are just trying to get these — Glenn, there's these Islamic radicals that are trying to — are you out of your mind? You think that they are going after the Islamic radicals with all? Really? That's what they are doing all this for?

PAT: Listen to Holder. He tells you that's not what they are doing this for. They don't even — I mean, they are not even looking for radical Islamist terrorists.

GLENN: Now, may I tell you something, America, that is — I'm going to ask you to breathe deep. I'm going to tell you pieces of a story and each piece is going to make you more and more angry. I just want you to breathe deep. Piece Number 1: You know that ten years after the World Trade Center and we got nothing, right? We got nothing. Breathe deep. Ground Zero's just still — breathe deep. But right across the street from Ground Zero is a brand new 13 story mosque. Breathe deep. Breathe deep.

PAT: I don't need to because I heard from an imam yesterday.

GLENN: Yeah. So it's a 13 story mosque.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And it opens 9/11/11, on the tenth anniversary of Ground Zero, a new mosque opens up right across the street of Ground Zero. Now, we'll get that imam's explanation here in a second, but I just, I just would like to point this out. Our kids are being expelled from school on a made up holiday, a holiday that's not even celebrated in Mexico. It's a made up holiday, a holiday that we celebrate, Cinco de Mayo, it was made up by Dos XX and Corona. Our children are being kicked out of school because they're insensitive for wearing an American flag on Cinco de Mayo on a T shirt, but nobody wants to talk about, oh, I don't know, how that might be a little insensitive to open and dedicate a 13 story mosque on the lip of the hole that is still there, the scar that is Ground Zero? You don't think it's a little insensitive to dedicate that mosque on 9/11 at Ground Zero?

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."
