Glenn Beck: NASA's new mission -- make Muslim countries 'feel good'

GLENN: From high above Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. My name is Glenn Beck. So I have to play some amazing audio here of the new chief of NASA. Okay, the space exploration, whatever. Let's make NASA's main, main mission to make Muslim countries feel good — I'm quoting — feel good about themselves and their contribution in history to math and science. Here is the chief of NASA.

VOICE: Charged me with three things. One is he wanted me to help reinspire children to get into science and math. He wanted me to expand our international relationships and third and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations, to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science and engineering.

PAT: Wow. Gosh, that's —

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: That's the charge given to Charles Bolden by the president of the United States for the NASA mission.

GLENN: That's the most condescending thing I've ever heard.

PAT: Foremost.

GLENN: Foremost.

PAT: That was his foremost mission.

GLENN: But imagine how condescending that is to say that NASA's going to go over and say, look who's been smart in the past, look what you've done. Who can take an abacus and turn it upside down? You can. I mean, that is the most condescending thing I've ever heard. Make them feel good about their history. And isn't that so very progressive. Make them feel good. That's the charge of NASA? That's what we're doing with NASA money?

PAT: Well, what would you do with NASA? I mean, you don't — you know, it's a space program. What are you going to do?

GLENN: You've already been to space.

PAT: You're not going to go to space.

GLENN: We've already been to space.

PAT: We've been to the moon.

GLENN: If that's your charge, shut NASA down.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: If that's your charge, shut it down. You know there are some things that only the government can do because it is so big of a charge, such a huge charge. I no longer think that NASA is the only one that can go to space because we've seen it with the X rocket. You can do it. So NASA's looking for a new mission. If that is the new mission of NASA, I don't even know what that has to do with space. Shut it down.

PAT: No, because they are also doing global warming. So it's the Muslim outreach.

GLENN: Oh.

PAT: And you are doing the climate change, too. So —

GLENN: We have Darrell Clegg Washington on the phone now.

KLEGWORTH: Darrell Klegworth.

GLENN: Klegworth?

KLEGWORTH: Yes. I'm the associate director of Glenn Beck Obama research outreach.

GLENN: Wait. I didn't know we had one of those. What is this?

KLEGWORTH: The Glenn Beck coalition to outreach to Obama's force.

PAT: What?

GLENN: The Obama outreach?

KLEGWORTH: Yes.

GLENN: We're reaching out to Obama supporters?

KLEGWORTH: We are. We believe that it's important for many of the listeners out there who have voted for Barack Obama but might listen to Glenn Beck to know that they're excellent at math.

PAT: Really?

KLEGWORTH: They're excellent at —

GLENN: How is — I didn't — first of all —

PAT: How do we even know they are excellent at math?

KLEGWORTH: They are fantastic at it. Have you ever met these people?

GLENN: Hang on just a second. No, I haven't and I — I mean, first of all, they are probably not listening to us.

KLEGWORTH: Very important to reach out to them. They are listening very closely. A lot of people seem alienated by the fact that you bring up all of Obama's faults and his connections to nefarious people.

GLENN: Right, but I don't —

KLEGWORTH: But they really need to come along to the Glenn Beck business and to be customers and listeners of yours for years to come is to realize that we understand here at the Glenn Beck program that they know their times tables. They have studied both long and short division.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I don't think this is what — I mean, they don't —

KLEGWORTH: But really —

GLENN: It's not like they have a misunderstanding of where I stand on math with them.

KLEGWORTH: They do. Think about this. Do they know that you know that they're special? They're special people. Do they know —

GLENN: I think that might be a little condescending.

KLEGWORTH: Do they know that you know that they — if passed with cooking and appetizer, it will likely come out fairly well. Do they know that about you?

GLENN: That I know that they can cook appetizers?

KLEGWORTH: They can cook, when you cook —

GLENN: I'm not sure all of them can.

KLEGWORTH: Well, that's not really important. That's important is that they know that you know that they can cook up a wonderful spinach and artichoke dip.

PAT: So this is all about making them feel important or —

KLEGWORTH: We want to be sure that they feel good about their ability to look bruschetta.

GLENN: Let me just take this out of the real world here.

PAT: Weird.

GLENN: You know, with our associate director of Obama voter outreach.

KLEGWORTH: Yes.

GLENN: And let's use a hypothetical situation.

KLEGWORTH: Hypothetical.

GLENN: Okay. Let's say a group of people hated you because they thought that you were oppressing the rest of the world, that you were the Antichrist, the literal Antichrist, okay?

KLEGWORTH: Sure.

GLENN: They hated your way of life, they hated your religion, and it was deep. I mean, it was generational. If I said to them, hey, you're good at math and science, I don't think that's going to make a difference.

STU: Well, that could ring a little hollow. But if you were to also say you're good at social studies.

PAT: Oh.

KLEGWORTH: You're good at gym. You guys are fantastic at dodge ball and pickle ball you're at least adequate.

PAT: I don't think Obama supporters are good at dodge ball. I don't think they even play it.

KLEGWORTH: How do you know that?

PAT: Well, because it's dangerous.

KLEGWORTH: It is a little dangerous. Maybe we should ban that.

GLENN: But wait a minute, wait a minute. What if we tell them that they can play it even though it's dangerous; that's how good they are?

PAT: Ah.

GLENN: It's not dangerous for them.

PAT: Hmmm, that might be good.

KLEGWORTH: That's pretty good.

PAT: You like that?

KLEGWORTH: I like that.

PAT: I mean, you are the outreach guy.

KLEGWORTH: I am.

GLENN: You go out and keep that outreach.

PAT: Make that happen.

GLENN: I think new Obama supporters are going to start coming, watching and listening to the show every day with this kind of —

KLEGWORTH: It's important to focus on this, Glenn. Like, for example, we have started an outreach program directly to Sean Penn and we said, "I am Sam" was adequate. You did a good job in that movie. It was a good job of acting. It wasn't —

PAT: Have you seen I am Sam?

KLEGWORTH: No, no, of course not.

PAT: Nobody did, but you just want to make him feel good about his performance.

GLENN: But I don't think that's going to make him a fan of me or even a supporter or even tolerate me.

KLEGWORTH: Well, it's certainly not believable if you tell him he is good at math because there's no way Sean Penn has come to addition in a good way.

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."
