GLENN: Now, let me give you now the latest stats on right track, wrong track. Now, this is something that I don't like. I don't like this poll because because it never really tells you

PAT: What does it mean?

GLENN: Barack Obama and I can both say we're on the wrong track. He wouldn't, because he could say that because he would be looking at the same conditions but look at the solutions differently. Say, yeah, well, we're on the wrong track because the Republicans are whatever and I could be saying that we're on the wrong track because we're too socialist and he's he might say we're on the wrong track because we’re not socialist enough. So, it's too nonspecific, but I want to give it to you because if you add another stat to it, it does take on meaning. Right track, wrong track is now at 80 percent wrong track?

PAT: Uh huh.

STU: Well, it depends on what group you're talking about. Rasmussen does a split of basically mainstream voters and the political class. You want the political you want the mainstream voters.

GLENN: Mainstream voters.

STU: Yeah. Mainstream voters 84% say that the country is going the wrong direction, off the track.

GLENN: Okay. 84%. Now, give me the political class and then give me the distance between each other. Now, what the political class is are those in Washington, those who are the ruling class.

STU: Right. The political class is saying 67% of them are saying that we're on the right track. So, the political

GLENN: Almost polar opposites from the people. The people who are in the political class, the ruling class, are almost polar opposite.

PAT: A little out of touch.

STU: Yeah. You've got a 51 point swing there between the two classes and

GLENN: No, no. A what?

PAT: 51 points

STU: 51 point swing. So, if you figure 67 I don't have all the breakouts here, but you figure it's 76, 33 in favor of it for the political class and 6 to 84

GLENN: No, no. You have the add the degree of swing. You have to add the 67 or 60 whatever and 84 to show the degree. You're going in the opposite direction, it's 180 degrees.

STU: Hum. I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for there. I mean, the typical way I would calculate a swing in the polls would be two groups and the difference between them in support which here would be 67 to 16a 51 point swing, which is about the largest swing I've ever seen on anything.

GLENN: No, no. Add these two add these two numbers together and you see your distance. If you add these two numbers, you will see the difference between us. 87% say we're going this direction

STU: 84, yeah.

GLENN: Whatever. And 67 are going the other direction.

PAT: Yes

STU: Yes.

PAT: I see. So

STU: There's probably something above my head there.

PAT: So you're saying we're going different directions on the same line. So, they're 67 points over here and you're 84 over there, you would add those together.

GLENN: This doesn't make any sense to you?

STU: Because it's the same question.

PAT: 148 is what you're going for. I'm not sure it works that way, but I see

GLENN: You're making fun of me. Our toying with me now, like a little mouse.

PAT: I'm just trying to figure out where you're going and I think that's it. Right? You're saying a linear line.

GLENN: Linear line. You're going

STU: This isn't working, no, it's not inches if you have two sides line. One says right direction and you use that for the politician elites and then the other says wrong direction.

GLENN: He's making fun of me.

PAT: Which is 84% of the people.

GLENN: He is absolutely making fun of me.

PAT: I'm trying to make it work for you. I'm trying to get to that 148 number that you want, and sadly

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: I don't think I can I helped you do it.

STU: If you say that the political class is a plus 34 on this question, which 67 to 33, say, and you say the mainstream is minus 68, add 84 to 16, then you can get to 102 point swing if you want to go that way.

PAT: Okay.

STU: I don't know why we want to go that way. That's just doubling the

PAT: If you take both ends of the tangent and you multiply it by pi

STU: Yeah. Exactly. Then you've got to go at least 9 digits.

PAT: Then you take X and you multiply it by relativity over Y

STU: And you put it in the pythagorean theorem.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: You've got work that in there.

PAT: Of course you do.

STU: Once you get that in

PAT: You carry the 2, bring down the 1.

STU: Divide by the upper tractor.

PAT: Then you get Glenn's number of 143 point swing.

STU: 143,000 point swing.

PAT: Yet, when you multiply that number by 100

STU: Thousand

PAT: Thousand

STU: Million, and then you're there.

PAT: And you're right there. It's just that easy. It's just that easy.

GLENN: You're just going to keep going, aren't you?

STU: We have some more time in the show.

GLENN: Just keep going,

STU: There's a gigantic swing there.

PAT: There's a gigantic swing there, no matter whether it's 51 points or 17,386 as Glenn would like it to be. It's big.

STU: Really big.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

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."
