GLENN: Today I'm going to outline for you the idea that I outlined on

television last night. Somebody has to pick this up. It's not going to be me.

But somebody has to pick this up. Somebody needs to go because I'm telling you,

the government will have no place to go. They will have to do these things.

There is no reason why our congressmen and all these people in Washington make

$175,000 a year as their starting wage. There's no reason for it. "Oh, but they

have to have two homes." Really? Well, have them go live in the barracks. We'll

put them up at Andrews. Why not? "Oh, well, they have all these pensions." Why

do they have the pensions? They can get all their healthcare at the V.A. medical

centers from hereon out. Congratulations from that. You get exactly what our

soldiers do. Our armies, our soldiers in the Army, they make about $22,000 a

year. And if any of these clowns in Washington want a free education, I'll

consider it. They need one. But they shouldn't get any better benefits than our

military does. And why are they making $175,000 a year? Are they taking a bullet

to the face? Are they risking having their limbs blown off? I don't think so.

Are they in worse combat than our soldiers? Nope. Congress should never make

more than $22,000 a year. That's what our soldiers make; that's what they make.

Wherever our soldiers go get their medical care, that's exactly where they get

medical care. As far as federal employees go, that's exactly what go to the V.A.

hospital. Congratulations on that. Oh, you love the V.A. hospital so much? Do

you? Really? Yeah, it's the best, isn't it? Yeah. You go ahead. Federal

employees? You now get all of your treatment at the V.A. Medical Center.

Anything the soldiers get you can get. Congratulations on that.

How come the average worker in America makes $50,000 a year and the average

federal worker makes $75,000 a year? The average federal worker makes, I think

it's $110,000 with all of the benefits. No. No. The average federal employee

should never make more than the average American, ever. Period. All your

benefits, you get them from the V.A., period. Congratulations on that. Oh, you

don't like that? Washington, you don't like that? Here, I'm going to fix

security for ya. I'm going to fix security. This is in Broke. Read about this

one. Push it. Push it because they'll have no place to go. Who in Washington, if

this was a movement, who in Washington could say "No, I'm not cutting my

$175,000 salary down to what our military makes." They couldn't. They couldn't

say no. Ya got em. Get em! Who could say no to the federal employees making the

same as the average worker?

Look, the average worker, their salary starts to go up? Congratulations.

Everybody's salary can go up. Until that time, no. Who can say no to that? Do

you know that jobs over $150,000 have doubled, have doubled since Obama became

president? Why? Has the private sector? Has that happened with the private

sector? Somebody needs to pick that up.

Now, I'm going to help you with security because they'll say, well, that's too

expensive; we can't keep two homes, we can't fly back and forth, we can't no,

we'll fly you on a military transport plane. That's not a problem. You can fly

exactly like our military does. When our military family has to go back and

forth, don't worry about it. You can just catch the next military transport

plane. Now, you may have to make four connections but you'll get home. Don't

worry about it. Congratulations on that. Oh, you don't like it? Well, then maybe

you shouldn't be in session so much. Maybe you should be like our founders had

you. You're only in session for a few days every year. Maybe you do it like

Texas does. You're only in session every other year. Congratulations. You like

it now?

You know what I'm really concerned about. I'm concerned about security in

Washington. I mean, look. Think about this. We have a plane, God forbid we have

some nut job from the Middle East take a plane and run it into the capitol while

everybody is in session. What happens? We wipe out everybody in congress? That's

a nightmare. For security reasons they should all stay in their districts. For

security reasons they should all remain at local offices, close to the people.

That way continuity of government. You can't wipe everybody else out. What? They

can't get on the Internet and talk to each other? They can't pick up the phone

and do all that business? Oh, you know what would be really tough is you'd break

up J Street. No. You'd break up K street. No. Would that be bad? Oh, gee, all

those big huge lobbying firms. What they would have to do is they would have to

spend all of their money going from city to city, state to state trying to lobby

people and those people would still be at home with their families. They would

still be in their communities. Wouldn't that suck? But I'm just doing it for

security reasons. I'm just worried about their security. I just think for

continuity of government they should stay home. And it would also save us an

awful lot of money. And it would be a lot easier for them to do their job at

$22,000 a year instead of $175,000 a year, and they'll know where their local

V.A. center is.

America, pick it up! Do it. Demand it. They have no place to go. They have no

place to go. Pick up their salaries and make the argument. Pick it up. Who could

possibly argue that and win?

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."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
