GLENN: I've just got questions that need to be answered tonight. Not by the administration but by you, by your neighbors, by your friends. Questions that need to be answered. What are the odds? I want to get Steve Nguyen on. What are the odds? Give me the best Vegas odds maker, will you, Steve? Give me the name of them. What are the odds? In fact, if anybody knows odds makers, if anybody I want you to watch tonight. Tell them to watch tonight. I'd love to see the odds of what I'm going to lay out tonight because they're staggering. It's so far beyond a reasonable doubt that it's laughable. What were the dreams of his father? What a great question. Thank you, Pat.

PAT: Thank you.

GLENN: I'm going to give you a cupcake now.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Wow, I would have brought that question up a long time ago if I would have known that.

GLENN: I actually gave them to Jeffy to give to Dave because Dave is here as our guest today and Jeffy probably gave them to Dave.

PAT: Wait, you got a cupcake?

GLENN: Did you get a cupcake?

PAT: He pays $11,000 for this and he gets a cupcake?

GLENN: That's all he did?

PAT: Was the cupcake promised to you?

Dave: I actually got a big cookie, a piece of a big cookie.

PAT: Oh, what a rip off.

Dave: A big sacrifice personally to give to me.

GLENN: Did you, Jeffy? You sacrificed to give the big cookie?

PAT: Nice.

JEFF: I sacrificed a piece of my

GLENN: A piece of the big cookie.

PAT: You paid the most in the auction to follow Stu around, right? Be executive producer for a day?

Dave: Yeah, supposedly.

GLENN: Yes. He's not here, is he? That's pretty weird, isn't it? Now, you paid $11,000 to come here. For what exactly were you hoping that Stu would show you or do?

PAT: You don't know?

GLENN: You have no idea?

Dave: It's one of those days

GLENN: One of those days.

PAT: Are you independently wealthy? Do you have a whole bunch of, like a big piggy banks at home? How does that work?

GLENN: I mean, how do you pay for $11,000? I mean, usually, usually people are like---

PAT: Fat cats.

GLENN: I'm 74 years old and I've been how old are you?

Dave: 25.

GLENN: You are 25?

Dave: That's right.

GLENN: And you are in the army? We are paying our army far too much money. Dave just looks like, yeah. Oh, yeah, we're all rich. So you've done two tours of service?

Dave: That's correct.

PAT: Wow, thank you. Thank you.

GLENN: And you are from Alaska?

Dave: Yes.

PAT: Came all the way here for this.

GLENN: From Alaska.

Dave: Sure did.

PAT: Wow, wow.

GLENN: Disappointing now, isn't it?

Dave: Stu already gave me the refund policy.

GLENN: Really? No refunds. It really kind of stinks. So you've been over to Afghanistan or Iraq?

Dave: Both of them, sir.

PAT: Did you just call him sir? Wow, you are in the military.

GLENN: Call me ma'am. I've worked a long time to be called no, wait. That was no, I got that all screwed up.

PAT: Something else, yeah.

GLENN: How are things going over there?

Dave: overseas ?

GLENN: Yeah.

Dave: Not too bad. I was mostly support. So we didn't see too much of the action, both fronts. Yeah, things are cleaning up, especially the surge in Iraq when I first went over, was it '07? Recently in Afghanistan when they were building up there. So

GLENN: How's morale?

Dave: Morale? Not too bad. We were on the FOP. So we were, of course, had a lot of the accommodations that

PAT: A FOP is, for those who may not know?

Dave: Forward operating phase.

PAT: Not being the hip

GLENN: We're pretending.

PAT: Not being the hip military people we are, the FOP is, of course

Dave: Forward operating phase.

PAT: The FOP, we all call it the FOP, you know, for the simpletons who don't know that.

Dave: (Laughing).

GLENN: Well, they're more than simpletons. They're racist.

PAT: Yes, racist simpletons. Who hate inner city children and don't want them to go to school.

Dave: Yes.

PAT: That's all they are.

GLENN: Well, that's a dream of my father, yeah. So anyway, so that's going well for you. Now, you wrote a check for $11,000, which makes me a little nervous because you might be an operative. You know what I mean? Don't you think?

PAT: He might be.

GLENN: You might have gotten Soros money. Hey, kid, go in there; you look like you're one of them.

PAT: Harmless?

GLENN: You look totally harmless.

PAT: A clean cut guy.

GLENN: Yeah, you are talking in your sleeve now. I saw that. See? I know he's talking he doesn't even have sleeve, but he's talking into imaginary sleeves. But thank you so much for the donation because, you know, that goes to 8/28 and we have a lot of the guys like you that are going to be joining us and the first, at least I think it's going to be the first part of it. It may be the middle of it, I'm not sure. But at the appropriate point in the event, we're going to be doing quite a salute to you guys, and I thank you very much for your service.

PAT: Are you going to be at 8/28? Are you going to be able to make that?

Dave: I'm not going to be able to make it.

PAT: Get out. We're tired of looking at you. Get out.

GLENN: Are you going back? It's all the way, you're in Alaska.

Dave: There's speculation of us going back, but I won't be in the unit too long.

GLENN: Right. Oh, you are getting out? What are you going to do?

PAT: Now, you are from Alaska. Do you know Sarah Palin?

Dave: Oh, yes.

PAT: All you guys know each other.

GLENN: There's, what, four people and then a lot of, like, deer or elk.

PAT: Polar bears or something.

GLENN: Moose or something. I'm going up on vacation to Alaska this fall.

Dave: Yeah, I got the tickets for your show on September 11th. I'll be going to that.

GLENN: Holy cow.

PAT: This guy is made of money.

GLENN: All right. He's stalking me. What should I if you are going up to Alaska, what’s the one thing you should do?

VOICE: One thing, well

GLENN: Besides I thought bring a jacket would be one.

PAT: No, you don't need that anymore, with global warming. Glaciers are all melted, right?

Dave: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: I called Todd Palin and I said, okay, Todd, you know, so what should we do when we're up there? And he said, oh, I'll call you back. So he calls me back and I couldn't talk to him and he's like, there's the greatest thing ever you can go glacier climbing. My assistant said

PAT: No.

GLENN: Todd, you are calling Glenn Beck. Glacier climbing?

PAT: Glacier climbing?

GLENN: Yeah, I'm going glacier climbing. Could we shoot a bear while glacier climbing? For the love of Pete.

PAT: Did you relate to him, I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of a couch, a living room?

GLENN: Here's what I want. I want a place that has a big window where I can look out at the glacier.

PAT: That would be nice.

GLENN: And then maybe eat bear stew that someone else has hunted, killed, chopped up and then made into a tasty stew.

JEFF: Oh, look honey, somebody's climbing the glacier.

GLENN: That's what I'm looking for. Man, you people in Alaska, all this outdoorsy stuff, it's way overrated. By the way, welcome, Dave.

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."
