Glenn Beck: Hot List

There are things happening in this country and around the world that you need to know about, but I’m going to bet you haven’t heard a single one mentioned by the mainstream media.

• Did you know that 87 U.S. Senators and over 300 members of the House have signed letters to President Obama standing up for Israel, the blockade of Gaza, and the actions of Israeli commandos who landed on the ships that attempted to break the blockade a few weeks ago. Why isn’t this being reported?

• How about this one…did you know the House yesterday inserted a last-minute tweak into their version of the financial reform bill that could force private banking institutions to pay for and clean up the mess that is Fannie and Freddie? Oh, and by the way…that’s just another way of saying you’ll pay for and clean up the mess cause any costs to your bank will gladly be passed right on through to you.

• Oh and…speaking of the House and Fannie and Freddie…did you hear that when a couple of Republican Congressman tried to introduce amendments to the financial reform bill that would have forced the government to rework Fannie and Freddie and make them accountable for the mess they’ve helped create they were, according to the Wall Street Journal, repeatedly disallowed by House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, who at one point violently slammed down his gavel in frustration…no? didn’t hear that one?

• What about the provision added, almost completely unnoticed, to a “help small business bill” that passed the House last week that would allow all but the top 100 largest banks to pretend they haven’t made any of those bad subprime loans so they can go out and lend more money. This bill would allow almost 8,000 banks to spread out accounting of those bad debts for six to 10 years…just pretend they’re not there so it looks like they have more assets than they really do. By the way…this is exactly what happened during the 1980’s savings and loan collapse and again in during the Japanese bank collapse in the 1990’s and history tells us it did not turn out well. Amazing what happens when you pretend the boo-boo isn’t really there…it festers, becomes infected, and then kills you. Why are we doing this?

• And did you hear that new home sales dropped 33 percent in May, the month the government’s mortgage stimulus program went away? They were down 18 percent vs. last May…oh and commercial and private lending has taken a dive since January of this year….and showing that he’s no dummy, Fed head Ben Bernanke said yesterday that financial conditions have become “less supportive” of economic growth in the U.S. Nothing gets by you does it Ben?

• Meantime, the President’s buddy George Soros said yesterday that Germany’s plan to actually address its debt instead of continuing to spend like a drunken sailor was, and I quote “pushing its neighbors into deflation: threatening a long phase of stagnation…wait it gets better…and leading to nationalism, social unrest, and zenophobia, and, and, endangering democracy…yikes.

• Oh and Mr. President, not that this will matter to you but Americans are waking up. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll says 62% of adults feel the country is on the wrong track, the highest level since before the 2008 election. According to Democratic pollster Bill McInturff, the results show “a really ugly mood and an unhappy electorate.” Kind of like they were before you crammed Healthcare down our throats, for example.


A logical, rationale government would take all of this information and say, whoa, we’ve got to use some common sense and right this ship…it’s going to be hard and really painful but if we don’t change our path there will be no United States of America…at least not like the one we know now, but I fear that’s not what’s happening here. Listen to the rhetoric.. the subtle and not so subtle clues – something a lot of Americans wish they had done prior to the last election. We’re hearing the President and others start to talk about the threat of a double-dip recession…we’re hearing people like progressive economist Paul Krugman say FDR lost his nerve in 1936…he should have poured more stimulus money into the U.S. economy…Soros telling Germany if they don’t spend more they threaten democracy…democracy! In Europe. Gang, my fear, and I hope I’m wrong, is that we’re about to be introduced to a new phase of this economic crisis that will be presented as an emergency requiring our immediate attention in the form of another massive and maybe fatal government bailout that will lead to the ruination of our country. Keep your eyes and ears open…take the time to know what your Congressmen and women are doing under the cloak of secrecy…know history. For example: Krugman says FDR lost his nerve and needed to spend more during the Great Depression…let’s look at the actual words of FDR’s Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau near the end of their second term in office:

“We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it DOES NOT WORK…I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started…AND an enormous debt to boot.”

Do your homework…seek out the truth from as many different sources as you can. Find the perspective and context in history…don’t let the truth be revised, altered, obliterated to serve the purposes of those who want to “fundamentally transform” this into an America you and I won’t recognize.

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."
