Glenn Beck: Dems still blaming Bush

GLENN: According to a new poll out, President Barack Obama and the Democrats own the bailout and the economy now, which I guess is why John Kerry was out this weekend. He was out this weekend saying, "You know it's really unfair to the president that people now are starting to say that George Bush didn't start all this." Who was saying that, that he didn't start all this? Just saying it's time to get over, it's time to grow a set.

STU: I don't think he started it by any means, but he didn't stop it, which is what we were hoping he would do.

PAT: Accelerated it.

STU: Yes. And that's not, that's not good.

PAT: No.

STU: But we've seen a further acceleration of that to a level that no one except for maybe Glenn has ever imagined.

GLENN: I did.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And I'm imagining what's coming next, and it ain't good. Now deflation is coming. Inflation was coming if they could start the whole thing, but they can't restart the engine. So now deflation is coming. Now a second ‑‑ what happened to us already where you, you know, where your home value went down, you lost that and everything else? That's coming again from this point, and what they are going to do is they are going to immediately throw in more dollars and more money to stimulate, to hold it up, to prop it up and everything else.

They are talking now about Fannie and Freddie, $1 trillion. That doesn't cover Fannie and Freddie. That just, that's a Band‑Aid on Fannie and Freddie. A trillion dollars in Band‑Aid for Freddie and Fannie. And so now, I mean, how do you get out of this? How do you possibly get out of this? You don't, not with ‑‑ you get out of this with the genius of the American people. That's how you get out of it. You have to reinvent your way out. How are you going to pay all of these debts off?

Do you know, I think it's by next year 43 cents on every dollar will be borrowed? That's incredible. And we haven't even hit the ‑‑ I'm just looking ‑‑ I'm sorry, ADD boy. Inflation will remain subdued over the next three years. Bernanke is now saying this live. Yeah, how about, how about deflation, Ben? How about deflation?

Does anybody have a doubt that if we just let people do their job that we would go through rough times but we would get our way out of this? Do you have any doubt in your mind that the genius of the American people would create something new that would get us out? I find it amazing that green jobs, we know they don't work because we watched Spain, yet we're doing them. Healthcare, we know it doesn't work because we watched every country but most recently England. It doesn't work, yet we're doing it. Giant pensions, we know it doesn't work with a whole bunch of people on a federal payroll because we're watching Greece and yet we're doing it. What... what game plan are we working off of? I mean, I can't think of ‑‑ Democrats, I'm asking you, what game plan are you working on? Have you answered the charge, "Well, wait a minute, that didn't work in England, so what's the difference here? Well, wait a minute, that doesn't work in grease, so what's the difference here? Well, wait a minute, that didn't work in Spain but what's the difference here?" Answer that. If you can answer that and you say, oh, well, because, you know, Tim Geithner has... flying magic monkeys in his butt and they are going to fly out at any point and they are going to sprinkle the pixie dust all over things."

STU: I don't think that would work at all. That seems completely unbelievable.

GLENN: Quite honestly that gives me more hope than the plan we're on. At least I have some hope. I feel like, "Wait a minute, wait a minute, the flying monkeys are going to come out of his butt any minute."

STU: Isn't this a matter of faith, Glenn? You just talked about the genius of the American people and they talk about that, too. They just talk about the genius of their government.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Of Barack Obama, of Tim Geithner.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Of Ben Bernanke, all these people. They put their faith in the genius of the elected officials or some of them unelected to run things.

GLENN: Can I ask you, where does genius come from? Where does genius come from? How are people ‑‑ what is the mother of invention?

STU: Necessity.

PAT: Necessity.

GLENN: Necessity is the mother of ‑‑ so when something is necessity, when something is pressing down on people, that's when genius kicks in. Somebody says, "Well, wait a minute, I can fix that." You know the thing with socialism? It never lets anybody really fail. It just traps you in this zone like we're in right now where you are like, well, I can't really do anything about it. I can't really do that. I mean, if I went and I risked it all, the government could change all the rules and so I could lose it all and not gain on the upside, either, because they will never really let me have an upside, either, because if I have the upside, well, then they will just take it all. So one way or another I lose. So I guess I'll just stand here and wait for something to happen. And so genius isn't allowed to kick in because you are trapped in this mediocrity. You are trapped in exactly ‑‑ this is as good as it gets, gang. Under socialism this is as good as it gets.

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."
