President has to explain this?



"...if you've got less supply of something, as demand continues to stay steady or grow, your price is going to go up."


Complete transcript...

GLENN: Let me change the subject for a second here.

VOICE: Wormhole evidence!.

GLENN: Give you evidence that we have slipped through a wormhole! In my America, the one I grew up in, the President wouldn't actually have to have a press conference to explain this. Listen carefully to just how stupid this guy is.

PRESIDENT BUSH: We haven't built a refinery in a long time. We're expanding refineries but we haven't built a refinery in a long time. I strongly suggested to congress that we build refineries on old military bases but, no, it doesn't pass. But if you've got less supply of something, as demand continues to stay steady or grow, your price is going to go up. Secondly on oil, the more oil we find at home, the better off we're going to be in terms of the short run.

GLENN: What?

PRESIDENT BUSH: And yet our policy is let us not explore robustly.

GLENN: That's right.

PRESIDENT BUSH: In places like ANWR. And there are environmental concerns and I understand that and I also know there's technologies that should mitigate these environmental concerns. I've got a bill up there in congress now, their attitude is let's tax oil companies.

GLENN: That's right!

PRESIDENT BUSH: All that's going to do is make the price even higher.

GLENN: What?

PRESIDENT BUSH: We ought to be encouraging investment in oil and gas close to home if we're trying to mitigate the problems we face right now. So yeah, there's a lot of uncertainty and I'm concerned.

GLENN: Stop, stop. I don't think I need to say much more.

VOICE: Wormhole evidence!

GLENN: In the country I grew up in, the President would say, we all got this, right? I mean, we're all clear. I'm sorry, and somebody would say, "Mr. President, why did you feel it was necessary to talk about something so academic? Could we talk about real issues here? We got that." He's the President of the United States coming out saying, okay, demand is going up; let me say it slowly: We don't have any refineries. It's been 30 years since we've built a refinery. They're old. We made 1400 different varieties for California alone. Try the new Redwood forest scented gasoline that we're now making. Oh, and maybe we should look for oil. No war for oil. Okay, maybe we should look for oil instead of, you know, instead of having this idea that at some point down the road there will be little fairies that we can put into a jar and they'll magically run our cars. When we actually catch enough fairies in the jar, then we'll stop pumping oil out of the ground.

STU: But Glenn, I mean, we're trying to keep oil prices low. What about the idea of taxing the oil companies?

GLENN: What? This is -- where is that -- oh, I got a great article today from -- shoot, what was it? It was on -- it was Barack Obama's -- it was Barack Obama's plan on some other project I was working on. I can't remember now. It was that he was going to raise taxes for something. I don't remember what it was. He was going to raise taxes on an industry. The industry was saying, we're going to pass that on to the consumers. There's no other way. And so Obama's plan was raise taxes. Sure they'll raise prices, but we will then refund money to the taxpayer. That is creating another special interest group. That's all that's doing. That is taking the money from the rich because the poor won't have to pay that tax. That is a hidden tax again on the wealthy. Because he'll take the -- he will go and let's just say it's gas. You go in; I have to pay the gas tax. 60 cents, what is it, 55 cents they say that it will raise, it will raise, you know, just the environmental program that they've got going on that McCain wants.

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: I think it will cost an additional 50 cents or 60 cents a gallon.

STU: It's a significant increase.

GLENN: And I'm just freewheeling here. Let's just say what they do, they want to put that in. But then Obama's plan was, all right, well, I know that will hurt the poor. So I'll just take and reimburse the poor and give them a tax break and a tax refund for the money they spend at the gas station. What are you doing? What are you talking about? That's just a hidden tax on the rich and you're taking the money from the rich and you're moving it over to the poor. That has nothing to do with gasoline. That has everything to do with... comrade!

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
