STU: Glenn wanted this audio. This is that number, Glenn, you were talking

about, with the millions of jobs that they're fooling with constantly. This is

an example of it. Monica Crowley is talking to Bill Press who completely

butchers the stat 25 different ways but even the correct way is not accurate.

But here's the audio.

VOICE: "Excuse me. You have a very chronically high unemployment rate. You have

a president who looked like right after the trillion dollar stimulus he checked

out on the jobs issue. When you talk about compromise, there's nothing in this

man's character or political makeup to suggest moderation."

VOICE: "You can't ignore it. You may want to ignore it."

VOICE: "He's created more than a trillion dollars to no effect."

VOICE: "He created more jobs than George Bush did in eight years."

STU: More jobs in 20 months.

GLENN: He says 2.3 million jobs created.

PAT: No, he said 3.2. That's the created or saved nonsense.

GLENN: So let's go through it. And, by the way, that contrail, definitely not a

rocket that was launched, it was a paper airplane that a whale ingested and then

shot out of its blow hole. Anyway, go ahead.

PAT: Wow, that's cool.

STU: Here's the actual numbers. 3.2 million jobs he's created since he took

office. According to the BLS Household Survey, there are 137.8 million total

workers in January of 2001 when Bush took over.

PAT: 137.1.

STU: When he left, there was 142.2 million workers. That's an increase, an

increase of 4.4 million.

PAT: 4.4 million increase.

STU: So Obama took office with that number of 142.2 million. Currently, we're at

139.1 million. That is a 3.1 million job decrease.

PAT: That sounds like less. That's a decrease in jobs.

STU: Since he was --

PAT: Since he came into office.

STU: Three million decrease versus a 4.4 million job increase.

GLENN: Where is the 3.2 million jobs

PAT: Created or saved. Add those in.

STU: Could be saved.

GLENN: Give me -- so where is the --

STU: So the stat he's trying to talk about, which he's inaccurately talking

about, is this claim by progressives that in 2010 Obama has created more jobs in

the private sector than Bush did throughout his entire eight years. To unfold

that statistic, what you have to do is ignore all of 2009. In fact, you have to

ignore every month that he's lost jobs. You just ignore those up until the

beginning of 2010. Then you start including Obama as being responsible in 2010.

And you take all of that and add it up. Now, so you take only the gains from the

Obama Administration and then you look at the gains and the losses of the Bush

Administration, and if you compare those two numbers, you still don't get there.

You have to go to the private sector instead and you also have to go to the

establishment survey instead of the household survey. So if you could just do

all of those things then you can get close to that number. But at that point

you've just twisted -- what value is there.

GLENN: Here's the thing -- there's no reason, seriously, is there more?

STU: No, you're right. There is no reason to keep going.

GLENN: There's no reason to keep going on it. There's no reason, because when we

were first starting to go into Van Jones. I've told this story before. But it's

important to repeat now. When we first started to go into Van Jones, we had so

much information on Van Jones. I have stuff that will melt your eyes on Van

Jones. But I don't know if I have it in context. I don't know if I have it

completely right. This guy's been scrubbed. Who scrubbed him? Soros. So you

don't know. And we thought do we present this or not? Pat and I both went home

and we both prayed on it and so did Joe. The next day we all came in and we all

had the same feeling. One way or another we all came to the same thing: Not

enemies of mine, enemies of his. Van Jones is an enemy of the rights of God. God

gave rights. So God will take care of it. God will take care of it. All we have

to do is stick to the facts. You don't need to argue. You don't need to bash.

Nothing. Don't go out on a limb. They will destroy themselves. And every single

time it's happened. They're destroying themselves. The media is destroying

themselves. Do you really think that MSNBC or NBC will survive this? Do you

think they'll survive it? If Obama, if this thing comes apart and sanity rules,

MSNBC and NBC are over, because they chose sides. They chose sides. Do you

really think that the American people are going to listen to someone saying, are

you kidding me? He's created more jobs and he's been better for the average

person than George Bush was when people are having a hard time finding a job,

when there's 20 million people unemployed or underemployed in this nation. At

some point the lies and the propaganda don't work. That's why they need strife

and violence. Did you see what happened in London? Did you see what's happening

in London today? They're rioting. They're burning on the campuses because

they're saying we have to raise tuition. First of all, the last thing we have to

raise is tuition. That has increased more in cost than our healthcare has. And

the government is right in with it. They're adding pressure. That's all they're

doing is adding pressure. So the last thing we need is a raise in tuition costs.

STU: What precedent do you have, though, of keeping interest rates artificially

low and loaning money to people to buy things causing a bubble? I don't

understand. What possible precedent is there for that sort of activity? Is that

not exactly that? What's happening with colleges? They give you these

ridiculously low --

GLENN: But we were asleep. We were asleep. Maybe it's just me and I'm living in

a dream world, but I don't think I am. Americans are not stupid. Please, trust

in what Thomas Jefferson said. The American people will get it wrong. But

eventually they will wake up and they'll figure it out. They're figuring it out.

And the more that these lies are put on top of each other, and on top of each

other, the more they'll be exposed. Now, so you know, people will harden their

positions. And that's the real danger. Because that's what gets people to just

kill other people. They won't even listen anymore. They just are running on

blind hatred. And we're not at that point. We are with some, but we're not at

that point with the vast, vast majority of the left or the right. We must be

different. We must know that in the end love wins and hate causes others to

kill. And we must not -- we must remain open-minded. We must keep our minds open

and nimble and understand that we don't know all the ins and outs yet. What we

used to believe two years ago, many of us no longer believe. So what are we

going to believe two years from now? I don't know. Scares the hell out of me to

think what I'm going to believe in two years from now. Look at all of us. Stu,

two years ago you would have said, correct me if I'm wrong, what you believe

today is crazy. Would you not?

STU: Yeah, at least some of it, sure.

GLENN: Not all of it. You still have the basic fundamentals of where you were.

But you would have said -- if I would have told you, Stu, you're going to

believe these things in two years, this and this and this, pick them whatever

they are, you would have said never, I'll never go down that road.

STU: Far more things are possible than I would have admitted to two years ago.

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."

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.
