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!

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."
