GLENN: I understand the Ground Zero mosque, Media Matters has uncovered audio from 2006 of me defending is that how it's stated?

STU: Actually, flashback: In 2006 short appearance Beck appeared to call Imam Rauf a good Muslim! Baselessly!

PAT: Ooh, look at that headline, too: It's on tape! Glenn Beck and the good Muslim, Imam Rauf.

GLENN: Okay. So I'm on tape, I'm on tape apparently in 2006 defending and calling this Muslim imam a good Muslim.

PAT: A good Muslim. Let's hear it.

STU: You were praising him.

GLENN: I was praising him.

SAWYER: Well, as we mention Pope Benedict XVI has touched down in Turkey, the first ever pope to visit a Muslim country. It has now been two months since he quoted the 14th century scholar who characterized any lure of violence in Islam as evil. It set off a firestorm.

PAT: Here we go. Round 2 of discussion.

SAWYER: I know this is about in some ways of education, lack of understanding. They said can we ever bridge this divide?

PAT: Can we?

SAWYER: If there is a religion in which you can't publish a cartoon without a death threat and the pope

PAT: That's Imam Rauf.

GLENN: At the table?

PAT: At the table and you.

GLENN: I met this guy?

PAT: You've apparently proof positive of calling him a good Muslim!

GLENN: Okay. I met this guy?

PAT: You met him.

GLENN: He was in the room with me?

PAT: He's sitting at the same table.

GLENN: Oh, my goodness.

PAT: I don't know if there was food served, I don't know if you broke bread but you are sitting here.

GLENN: All right, go ahead.

SAWYER: Has to wear we think a flak jacket after having apologized for a statement when he goes to visit the Pope.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Hold on. I'm sorry. May I just talk about having to wear a flak jacket for statements that you make?

STU: Yeah, but you deserve it.

GLENN: Oh, okay. I'm sorry, go ahead.

STU: Unlike him.

PAT: Come on, don't try to equate that.

SAWYER: Understand about the inflamed feelings of the Muslim community?

IMAM RAUF: Well, the Muslim world has felt for a long time besieged by the west, western faith culture, Western traditions, Western atheism from the Soviet Union. And what we see over the last 30, 40 years is a reaction

PAT: By the way, the Soviets aren't in the West.

GLENN: Thank you for that.

IMAM RAUF: from the action which began and peaked in the first part of the 20th century against religion in general and Islam as well as other traditions.

SAWYER: Do you feel these are overreactions or appropriate reactions to these two events?

IMAM RAUF: I feel they are wrong reactions. These reactions are not at all called for by Islamic teachings. The teachings of Islam are very similar to the teachings of Christianity, of loving the one God and loving thy neighbor. These are the two carbon principles.

SAWYER: All right. Let me turn to Glenn Beck because the Imam Rauf has said this is a group of people. This is not him.

GLENN: Sure.

SAWYER: This is not about all of Islam. This is just a group of people.

GLENN: Sure. I believe it's a small portion of Islam that is

PAT: Is that it? This is a group of people. This is not him.

STU: Sure, it's a group of people.

PAT: You weren't specifically talking about this guy. You know nothing about this guy at this point.

STU: Sure.

PAT: Sure. That's their proof?

GLENN: That is not their proof.

STU: Sure, sure.

GLENN: This is on the Huffington Post? No, come on! This is the Huffington Post?

STU: Sure and then sure again! You said sure, and just to make sure you didn't know what I said, I said sure again! Two sures, twice! Sure, sure!

GLENN: Wait a minute, there's got to be more!

STU: Sure and then sure. What more do you need?

PAT: Let's see if there is. Should we go a little further? That's amazing.

GLENN: Can we go back?

IMAM RAUF: Loving the one god and loving thy neighbor, these are the two carbon principles.

SAWYER: All right. Let me turn to Glenn Beck because the Imam Rauf has said this is a group of people, this is not him. This is not all of Islam.

GLENN: Sure.

SAWYER: This is just a group of people.

GLENN: Sure.

PAT: Twice! There it is again proof of Glenn Beck's endorsement ringing spiritual endorsement of the goodness, mercy and love and good intentions of this man!

GLENN: Sure, sure. Sure.

PAT: Twice!

STU: He did it again! He's now admitted!

GLENN: I double down. I did it four times.

PAT: You doubled down!

GLENN: I did it four times!

PAT: He doubled down!

GLENN: Are you ready for this? It was actually an octet because I just said it four times there and I played it on tape four times! It's an octet of support!

PAT: Glenn Beck is practically a Muslim!

GLENN: (Laughing).

PAT: If you say "Sure" eight times in a row.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: You've converted to Islam.

STU: Who's married to Imam Rauf? Is it Glenn Beck or Daisy Khan? We don't even know.

PAT: That's ten times!

STU: And then you go on to the hateful comment because as they, of course, have to paint you of hating Muslims all the time.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: They put incredible amounts of emphasis on your "Sure, sure."

GLENN: Read the emphasis on the sure, sure. Is there actually is that what they are saying?

STU: Yes. Hold on one second. Let me find it. It's on the story.

PAT: That is really

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me.

STU: When Diane Sawyer mentioned that Imam Rauf said that radicals are just a group of people and not him.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

STU: Beck seemed to agree saying, sure, sure, end quote.

PAT: That is their proof! She doesn't even say, this guy's a good Muslim. Don't you think so Glenn? That's not what he's responding.

GLENN: I would have said, I'm not sure, he seems like a nice guy. We just met. In two years we'll have absolutely no recollection.

PAT: Let's go back one more time.

IMAM RAUF: peaked in the first part of the 20th century against religion in general

PAT: One more time.

IMAM RAUF: and Islam as well as other traditions.

SAWYER: Do you feel these are over- reactions or appropriate reactions to these two events?

IMAM RAUF: I feel they are wrong reactions. These reactions were not at all called for by Islamic teachings. The teachings of Islam are very similar to the teachings of Christianity, of loving the one god and loving thy neighbor. These are the two carbon principles.

SAWYER: All right, let me talk to Glenn Beck because the Imam Rauf has said this is a group of people. This is not him, this is not all

PAT: Because the Imam Rauf has said this is a group of people.

SAWYER: This is just a group of people.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: You are agreeing this is just a group of people. In fact, Pat, if you let it roll, listen to the next sentence.

GLENN: I believe it's a small portion of Islam that is acting in these ways, but I believe that it is

STU: What a hate monger! What a hate monger?

GLENN: So in other words, I hate all Islam because I say it's a small percentage of Islam that is doing it and, sure, sure.

STU: Sure, sure.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

STU: Sure, sure.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

STU: Sure, sure, sure, sure.

GLENN: I endorse him wholly on everything he's done or said, even though I have no idea who this man is.

STU: This is what they have against you!

GLENN: Sure.

STU: Sure, sure.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: That is it. You've been caught twice in the past two weeks completely lying about this program.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: And then it comes down to when their big proof is "Sure, sure."

PAT: Well, and I love the headline. You've got to go to Huffington Post. I hate to drive traffic. So don't do this. But just trust us on this. It's in red. It's about an inch high.

GLENN: Is it on the front?

PAT: It's on the front. And it's, as soon as you come to HuffingtonPost.com, on tape, colon, Glenn Beck and the good Muslim Imam Rauf.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: Sure. you were saying

PAT: It is.

GLENN: Could you, could you imagine, can you imagine anything.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: If you tried to make this case on anything in real life.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: Where, that was it.

STU: Sure, sure.

PAT: You guys have both become not just Muslims. You are imams now because you've said sure so many times. That's all it takes.

GLENN: This is unbelievable.

STU: Sure.

PAT: I wouldn't have believed it if

GLENN: Gang.

PAT: If we weren't experiencing this.

STU: When you are putting the word sure, comma, sure, period, in quotes, you have nothing!

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."
