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 this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
