GLENN: 888-727-BECK. Let's go to Al in West Palm Beach. Hello, Al.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn.

GLENN: Hey, Al.

CALLER: How are you, buddy?

GLENN: Good, how are you?

CALLER: Did you ever do something in your life that you were somewhat forced

into doing? Well, that's what's happening to me today, and I hate, I hate being

forced into this.

GLENN: Oh, my.

CALLER: And my dear old wife was the one to dial the phone and put me --

GLENN: Dear old wife. Okay, so Al, hang on just a second.


GLENN: So you're experiencing a point in your life, and everyone experiences

these points, where you are doing something that you're forced to do, you don't

want to do but you feel you have to do it for one reason or another, you feel

you have to do it but you regret it?

CALLER: I regret it, especially today when you're being filed on by the --

GLENN: I know, I know.

PAT: Especially today.

GLENN: Especially today.

PAT: Especially today.

GLENN: So -- but you regret making this call but you feel it's something you

have to do. I understand that. Go ahead.

PAT: But.

CALLER: And the reason why my -- the purpose of my call is to basically --

PAT: Of course it is.

CALLER: -- put my wife's mind at rest.

PAT: Oh, good.

GLENN: It's your wife. It's your wife. It's not you.

PAT: We're all in favor of that.

GLENN: All right. Well, go ahead.

PAT: Actually it's not you. It's her. Go ahead.

CALLER: Listen, you're my friend, I agree with 70% of what you said.

PAT: 70%.

GLENN: Good. All right. Go ahead.

PAT: 75, 77?

GLENN: Stop. Now, go ahead. Go ahead.

PAT: 65?

GLENN: Shhh. Quiet. Let Al speak. Go ahead. So what is it you have to do?

CALLER: Anyway, listen. George Soros is a dirt ball. He wants to create an

economic socialist world utopia.

GLENN: No, it's not socialist. It's called an open society, but go ahead.

CALLER: Whatever. And so in order for him to do that, he has elevated some poor

countries to a certain level of financial wellbeing. You say that he has

destroyed the economies of X, Y and Z country.

GLENN: Yeah, four, four separate countries.

CALLER: Right. At the same time these countries today, if I'm -- I sit to be

corrected -- are in better financial shape than they were when he intervened.

Now --

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Hang on just a second.


GLENN: No, not England. But let's -- I think I see what you're saying. What

you're saying is some of these countries that he collapsed, or he collapsed the

economies on, they were oppressive regimes.

CALLER: Exactly.

GLENN: Exactly. And so you'd like me to point that out?


GLENN: Oh, okay. So in other words, in other words let me put your wife's mind

at ease. So in other words, do we happen to have the cut? What show is this

from, Stu?

STU: It's from, you've got to go way back in history. It's from today.

PAT: How old were you today? I mean --

STU: From earlier today.

PAT: Think back. Who can remember what happened today.

GLENN: Well, I can't remember what happened today.

PAT: How old were you?

GLENN: I can't be held responsible for what I did today.

PAT: Earlier today, how old were you?

GLENN: I've been on the air for 37 minutes.

PAT: Please, this is ancient history.

GLENN: Let's go back in the last 37 minutes.

PAT: I protest.

GLENN: You think this is too --

PAT: This is too --

GLENN: Too far in the past?

PAT: Too far back. I don't even --

GLENN: Well, let's just show it for history. Here's what happened in the last 37


A man who is a hedge fund manager and has survived economic chaos, a man who has

brought down four regimes, nasty ones.

PAT: Oh, nasty ones.

GLENN: You mean like that, like me pointing out that those were nasty countries,

some of them.

PAT: You did that. But may I point out again?


PAT: That was about... 38 minutes ago?

GLENN: I can't be held responsible for what I said --

CALLER: Well, Glenn, you can be -- if you want, you know, if you want to make

fun of it, I'll laugh along with you. But if you want --

GLENN: I'm not making fun of it. No, no, I'm not laughing. I'm giving you the


CALLER: If you want to be fair and if I may put a -- if you want to be fair, in

the past couple of days you basically have painted with a great big, wide brush

as to his financial dealing, and as I say --

GLENN: No, I haven't talked about his financial dealings.

CALLER: Yes, you have.

GLENN: No, I haven't. I mean, I've mentioned his financial dealings. I've

mentioned that he makes -- you know, he's the 35th richest man in the world,

yes. I have talked about his hedge fund. I have not questioned how he makes his

money. I have questioned that he has made money off of the backs of the British

people and collapsed the British sterling which led to misery. I have played his

own words where he says, "Well, there were some unfortunate circumstances and

things that happened, you know, that you can't control. That's why I had to

experiment" with people's lives.

CALLER: Can I focus on two things that you said?

GLENN: That is fantastic. I'd love that, Al.

CALLER: For the past couple of days --

PAT: Just to put your wife's mind --

GLENN: Your wife's mind at ease.

PAT: -- at ease.

CALLER: For the past couple of days you have made fun of subversive tactics in

which Soros relished in the fact that he actually became involved in that.


CALLER: But if you -- the way you made it seem is that --

GLENN: No, hang on just a second. I didn't quote him, Al. I played the audio of

him saying subversive tactics.

CALLER: Play it again.

GLENN: Oh, okay. We can do that. Hang on just --

PAT: I'm going to play it again. Listen. Al.


PAT: Al.


PAT: We're going to play it again.

GLENN: Here it is, Al.

PAT: We're going to play it again, Al.

CALLER: Okay, guys, you can --


PAT: Al!

GLENN: You wanted to hear it again. Let's play it again.

SOROS: When you try to, let's say improve society, you affect different people

and different interests differently and they are not actually commensurate. So

you very often have all kinds of unintended adverse consequences. So I had to

experiment, and it was a learning process. The first part was this subversive

activity, disrupting the oppressive regimes. That was a lot of fun and that's

actually what got me hooked on this whole enterprise.

GLENN: Okay, go ahead, Al. So what's your point we just played?

CALLER: What was the operative word there?

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: There were several.

GLENN: There was a lot of them.

PAT: Several operative words.

CALLER: The operative word, my friend, is repressive.

GLENN: Oh, man, Al, I never thought of that! What a great point! So that brings

us exactly right to the point, now, doesn't it? He has collapsed four -- Al, he

has collapsed four regimes, four. They're repressive. Could you tell me what the

biggest obstacle is to justice and peace in the new world order, what is the

biggest obstacle, sir, in his own words?

CALLER: May --

GLENN: Answer the question, Al. Answer the question. Have you -- put your wife

on the phone. Have her answer the question.

CALLER: I will answer your question if you allow me to expand a little bit. Will

you allow me that?

GLENN: Answer the question and then you may expand.

CALLER: Thank you. I will answer your question. He has stated, and this is why I

hate to -- why I hate this guy and why I think --

GLENN: Oh, you hate him? I don't hate him.

CALLER: -- he is a dirt ball. The answer to your question is the fact that he

has stated that the greatest obstacle to world identity or whatever you want to

say is the United States of America.

GLENN: Oh, so he believes it is a repressive regime.

CALLER: I have answered your question. No, he did not say it was a repressive


GLENN: What do you think the biggest obstacle to justice and peace would be?

CALLER: America --

GLENN: A happy regime?

CALLER: American independence.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: So in other words, you don't want American independence?


GLENN: You think American independence --

CALLER: Hello. You said that you would allow me to expand.

GLENN: Go right ahead, Al. We could put your wife on. I'd rather talk to her.

CALLER: You're a hell of a sport. He has his subversive policies overthrew

repressive regimes and that is what he was laughing at. And I agree with him

100%. I am from Cuba. I wish that he would repressively -- I mean that he would

subversively take down the government of Cuba.

GLENN: It is amazing to me that you're from Cuba.

CALLER: You would actually be laughing along with him if that was the case,

would you not?

GLENN: It is amazing to me, sir, that you are from Cuba and you believe American

independence, American independence -- anyone who says that America is the

biggest obstacle to a new world order and justice and peace, and you want to

stand and defend that man is amazing to me. I am not defending the -- or I'm not

accusing the man of collapsing regimes and saying it was wrong for him to do it.

I showed you he collapses regimes so I could show you the steps that he takes.

There are five steps that the man takes to collapse, and he is doing all five of

them. He did them on repressive regimes, he has declared that America is a

repressive regime. Of course, you have to read into his words, but that goes

back to him saying he's like God and he's invisible. It also goes to his words

subversive activity. So he says that we are the biggest obstacle. I'm sorry he

doesn't use "Repressive." And then if you look at his pattern, there are five

steps, and I showed you the five steps that he's done in the past and the five

steps that he is doing right now.

Al, if you don't see it, that's okay, brother. Go back to sleep. Go back to

sleep. And I know you've regretted this phone call. I know, I know that you did

things that you just didn't want to do. And while you were doing them, you

regretted them. And maybe someday you'll even regret this phone call even more,

sir. But see, that's another point, that sometimes you do things whether you

are, what, 40, 50, 80 or 14, sometimes you do things that you have to do, but

you regret them. And the operative word there is "Regret."

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."
