RUSSERT: But you are not worried about losing your job?

RANGEL: What are you talking about? Are you just trying to make copy? What job? The one I got?

RUSSERT: Yeah, these are potentially very serious violations.

RANGEL: How do you think I got my job? I was elected. How do you think I lose it?

RUSSERT: Well, there's two ways, you can lose it if your colleagues voted you out of here because of ethics violations or if your constituents don't support you.

RANGEL: What station are you from?

RUSSERT: NBC, MSNBC.

RANGEL: Well, you're young. I guess you do need to make a name for yourself, but basically you know it's a dumb question and I'm not going to answer it.

RUSSERT: How is it a dumb question?

RANGEL: It's allegations made by some people.

RUSSERT: Sir, sir, you did not file taxes on your properties in the Dominican Republic allegedly. If that comes to be true, is that not a problem?

RANGEL: It doesn't really sound like NBC asking these dumb questions.

STU: No, it doesn't.

RANGEL: It just shows what has really happened to a channel that did have some respect.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Man!

GLENN: Stop! What an indictment!

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: What an indictment!

PAT: Mmm.

GLENN: You know, it sure doesn't sound like NBC. You're right, it doesn't. It doesn't sound anything like NBC. NBC, you should wake up to that. It doesn't sound like NBC. Here's a guy that everybody, every single person who has a heartbeat knows, come on. He hasn't paid his taxes! He's the chairman of the ways and means committee. Does he still have that or did he lose that?

STU: I do think he lost it.

PAT: Temporarily stepped down.

STU: Temporarily.

GLENN: He temporarily stepped down. He's the guy who wrote the tax code. How many times? He filed, they nailed him. He filed again, they nailed him again. It is so clear this man is guilty of ethics violations, so clear, yet they won't finish anything because he is so powerful, and I really, truly believe he knows where all the bodies are buried. Here's the thing. You are either a victim or you are an oppressor. If you are in congress, you are a victim or oppressor. He is both the victim and oppressor. That's a really sweet gig if you can get it. I believe Barack Obama and his administration are the victims and the oppressor. What a great, great gig. He knows where all of the bodies are buried.

Look, this is why I say 8/28 is so important and the idea that we're going to fix this through politics is nonsense. You can't fix this through politics unless you have people who are unafraid. How do you become unafraid? Well, I have to tell you, I can't answer that because I and my staff, I think, spend most of our time afraid. I shouldn't say that. There is an underlying understanding of what we are facing. I believe many members of this audience feel the same way if they are standing up. You know, you know what you're facing. So you're not it's not that you're not afraid. It's that you have commitment. You are committed to something.

Now, I spent most of my life as an alcoholic afraid someone would find out, someone will find out. So if that's what you're afraid of, well, then you're in trouble. You're never going to survive. And that's who we've been sending to Washington, people who have stuff to hide. Get all of that out of your system. Play your cards face up on table. You've got to be a man or a woman of honor and integrity. You have to be somebody that says, you know what? You are going to say whatever you want about me but I know the truth. I stopped doing those things. I changed my life. My word is my honor and when somebody comes in like Charlie Rangel and closes the door and says, let me tell you something, let me tell you something, I know who you are, I know that you did X, Y and Z, you can say, "Yep, and so do my constituents. Get the hell out of my office." Otherwise they are going to smear you and use it and just slaughter you, slaughter you, and they will they won't kill you first. What they will do is they will try to coopt you.

What was it that Trent Lott said about the new incoming Republicans? He said, when we get these people in here, these tea partiers, we must coopt them immediately. Well, how do you think they coopt you? They do, A, Mr. Smith goes to Washington: Now listen, son, you don't understand. You just shadow me for a while and I'll help you out. And before you know it, you've done so many things exactly like Mr. Smith goes to Washington where you are like, no, wait, hold it just a second; that's not what they told me. And then that person who's helping you is standing behind, they are like Trent Lott, "And I just want you to know, son, you didn't know that. Now, I find that hard to believe and so will your constituents." They coopt you that way, or they come into your office and say, you know, son, we all have had sexual problems and we all had those things and, boy, I think that would be awful for that to happen and your family to find out. And that's how you coopt. Who is Charlie Rangel? Charlie Rangel is a guy who can get away with everything because, well, now, son, I hate to tell you this. He's got enough people, enough dirt on enough people, he has enough power now that he can get away with murder. And NBC, you're allowing them to do it! "Well, now, this doesn't sound like NBC." No, you're right. It doesn't. And shouldn't that be the headline in front of every reporter at NBC?

PAT: Yeah, not that he called it stupid, a stupid question. I think the real story there in that little rant by Charlie Rangel is that he said he didn't sound like NBC, meaning NBC doesn't they don't challenge these guys.

STU: They're so sure they won't get a tough question from MSNBC, they can't even define the network by they won't even believe a reporter who identifies themself that way when they ask a tough question.

PAT: Yeah. Stu I mean, what does that say about your news department?

PAT: And Russert says NBC, MSNBC to show the special, the very special liberal credibility there.

STU: And he uses it. Not only is he aware of it, but he actually tries to utilize it to get an answer to the question. I swear I'm a friend: MSNBC. That's embarrassing. You should

GLENN: Play it again, please. This is an indictment of NBC and you know, I know nobody I wish reporters would actually listen. I wish, I wish that they would actually watch and they would have an open heart or an open mind, but they don't. Anybody who's watching is only playing gotcha. Anybody who's listening is only recording from gotcha. I wish people had an open heart and they could see, this is Tim Russert and

PAT: His son.

GLENN: I'm sorry. This is Luke Russert, Tim Russert's son. The guy you revered. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. And he asks the tough questions, and the response from Rangel.

RUSSERT: But you are not worried about losing your job?

RANGEL: What are you talking about? Are you just trying to make copy? What job? The one I got?

RUSSERT: Yeah, these are potentially very serious violations.

RANGEL: How do you think I got my job? I was elected. How do you think I lose it?

RUSSERT: Well, there's two ways, you can lose it if your colleagues voted you out of here because of ethics violations or if your constituents don't support you.

RANGEL: What station are you from?

RANGEL: It's allegations made by some people.

RUSSERT: Sir, sir, you did not file taxes on your properties in the Dominican Republic allegedly. If that comes to be true, is that not a problem?

RANGEL: It doesn't really sound like NBC asking these dumb questions, but it just shows what has really happened to a channel that did have some respect.

GLENN: Had respect. Had respect. Had respect. There should be no respect for anyone in congress or anyone in the White House. There should be respect for the office and the institution. These guys are supposed to be guardians of the institutions and our documents. That's what they are. "You used to have some respect. You used to have a little respect, you know. Maybe we have a little get together here and talk about respect, huh?" Oh, yes, we do. MSNBC and NBC, how do you sleep at night? How do you sleep at night? You have gotten into bed with Satan himself.

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."
