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!

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."
