GLENN: I believe we can announce on this program that JD Hayworth's campaign is over. JD Hayworth apparently made an infomercial and I don't know how it took this long to find the infomercial, but it did. Here is a piece of the JD Hayworth infomercial from 2007.

VOICE: $80,000 in grant money and I don't have to pay it back. I'm ecstatic about it.

VOICE: We award this grant for up to $1.3 million back.

VOICE: How much money? I mean, did I hear right, billions?

VOICE: Hundreds of billions.

VOICE: Hundreds of billions of dollars. Wow. Forgive me if I sound like a skeptic because that's a lot of money. Probably too good to be true. Congressman, is it for real?

HAYWORTH: It is for real.

PAT: JD Hayworth.

HAYWORTH: I understand the skepticism in part because President Reagan used to say the greatest contradiction ever uttered was I'm from the government and I'm here to help, but I'm telling you this is really true. About 25 years ago a decision made to get money in the hands of the American people. And though we talk about it as if it's free money, let me remind you. It's not free money. It's your money. It's money you've already surrendered to the government in terms —

GLENN: Stop just a second. That's great. So that company that got the $1.5 million loan —

PAT: That was all his.

GLENN: That was all their money.

PAT: Yeah. Isn't that great?

GLENN: Wow. I didn't know that.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: I thought when I first heard this audio, and there's video that goes with it. I thought it was a parody. I thought it was a spoof.

PAT: No.

GLENN: I thought it was somebody saying, you know, making fun of the system that we have set up. No, no, no.

PAT: No.

GLENN: This is JD Hayworth waving the flag and saying, hey, get that money; it's not free; it's yours.

PAT: It's very Matthew Lesko esque?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: This guy's done.

STU: It goes on, though. I think it actually gets worse from there.

GLENN: How could it possibly —

STU: Well, because at least at this point he's sort of making a justification of something.

GLENN: Oh, boy. Let it roll.

PAT: Okay. We're going to have to go back to the beginning.

GLENN: Well, that's okay.



JD Hayworth Infomercial: Free money! You never have to pay it back!

VOICE: $80,000 in grant money and I don't have to pay it back. So I'm ecstatic about it.

PAT: Who wouldn't be.

VOICE: This grant for up to $1.3 million, greatest news about that is we don't have to pay it back.

PAT: Great news. Great news.

VOICE: How much money? Did I hear right, billions?

VOICE: Hundreds of billions.

VOICE: Hundreds of billions of dollars? Wow. Forgive me if I sound like a skeptic, but that's a lot of money. Sounds too good to be true. Congressman, is it for real?

HAYWORTH: It is for real. Now, I understand the skepticism in part because President Reagan used to say the greatest contradiction ever uttered was I'm from the government and I'm here to help. But I'm telling you, this is really true. About 25 years ago a decision made to get money in the hands of the American people.

PAT: All right.

HAYWORTH: And though we talk about it as if it's free money, let me remind you.

GLENN: Yes, please.

HAYWORTH: It's not free money.

GLENN: No.

HAYWORTH: It's your money.

GLENN: It's your money.

HAYWORTH: It's money you've already surrendered to the government in terms of taxation.

PAT: It's mine.

HAYWORTH: But the government has a chance and you have a chance to make an investment in yourself and, in fact, improve not only your personal economic situation but put people to work and really help rebuild the economy on your block, in your neighborhood, happening on Main Street instead of Wall Street.

STU: That's Obama's argument for the stimulus package.

VOICE: Like you've always dreamed of. National grants conferences can help you to be your own boss.

PAT: I love these.

VOICE: Send your kids to the best schools. Buy your first home. Renovate your house.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

VOICE: Become an investor. Build wealth.

PAT: I mean, we might as well vote for Don Lapre.

VOICE: — that made $30 to $40 profit in a week and I placed those ads in around 1,000 other newspapers around the country.

GLENN: 1,000 other newspapers. That's how I did it.

VOICE: That's how I generated over $50,000 a week out of my one bedroom apartment. I'll show you some secrets that will make you wish I started doing it five —

GLENN: Buy a bigger apartment, wouldn't you?

PAT: Well, month after month after month, you still make $80,000! And you are still in a tiny one bedroom apartment.

GLENN: That's crazy!

PAT: Why?

GLENN: Because it's not my money. No, it's not. It's my money, not your money! Isn't that right, JD Hayworth?

PAT: Vote for me, Don Lapre. I'll get you hundreds of billions of dollars! But remember it's not the government's money; it's your money.

VOICE: Rebuild the economy day after day by just accepting your own money back from the government.

PAT: Up to $1 1/2 million is available for you to start a small business selling tiny classified ads out of your one bedroom apartment.

GLENN: Keep talking. It's making sense to me. Keep talking. Seriously, I — wait a minute. (Fly buzzing). Why is this guy — oh, yeah, it just landed on my face. Oh, yes. I like it when they wash their hands while landing on my face. Oh.

STU: If you listen to his argument there at the end, he is saying basically if you take money from the government to build your personal economy, it's helping the economy grow and everything.

GLENN: Stimulus, yeah.

STU: That's the stimulus program's argument.

GLENN: It is.

STU: That is Obama's argument for the stimulus package.

PAT: And he was making it back in 2007.

STU: He was! From his one bedroom apartment, he was making arguments about the stimulus.

PAT: I don't think you recover from that. As a conservative I don't think you do.

GLENN: We haven't said anything about the election in Arizona mainly because, I just don't want to get involved. If I have one on, I have to have both of them on, and we've done that in a few states and I just feel uncomfortable inserting myself in these because I don't know. You know. At the state level you know. You know, I can tell you that my gut was saying Mike Lee. I think it was my wife said to me last night. She said, are you for Mike Lee or are you for Bridgewater? And I said, you couldn't tell? And she said, no, I couldn't tell. And I'm like, that's good. I was kind of for Mike Lee but I don't even know on that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I don't even know on that. And it's really up to you on the local level. We haven't inserted ourself in Arizona, quite honestly one reason is, I mean, you know where I stand on John McCain. What a nightmare that guy is. But JD Hayworth, I mean, is that all you got?

PAT: Tiny classified ads month after month after month! Just place them in newspapers all over the country!

GLENN: Where is Arizona going to go from here? Do they have another option?

PAT: They are going to go with me, JD Hayworth, to a fabulous new swimming pool and a big fat home on the beach. I can show you how. For $29.95. But wait, there's more.

STU: Has anyone heard Hayworth's explanation for this yet? Has he come up with an answer?

PAT: I haven't.

GLENN: He's going to say — I don't know,

PAT: Can he say it in the Don Lapre voice?

GLENN: Yeah. He's going to say, listen, they have been taking your money for a long time! Are you just going to let that money sit in the federal government and go to somebody else?

PAT: No!

GLENN: It's your money! That's why I've been saying take your money back! Take your money back, take your power back! And you can do it by calling me, now!

STU: That's pretty good. I almost want to call, yeah.

PAT: Yeah. Is there a 1 900 line or something I could —

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: Because I think you could make money from that, too.

GLENN: Yes. 1 866 666 6666.

STU: I would really like to know what his explanation is because that sounds like the direction he would go.

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."
