GLENN: You know what, I've got a problem -- just a sidebar here, your Honor.  I'm really torn on this story because what a crappy designer God was with horses.  I mean, what happened to evolution here?  The horse didn't grow thicker ankles?  He's a horse!  He's got like a -- it's like a car on Popsicle sticks.  What kind of -- I don't believe in evolution.  Look at the horse!  If evolution existed, you know what horses would look like -- you know what?  In fact, stop with the breed -- have you seen that they're breeding pigs and people?  I don't think I need a pig person.  I don't need it.  I don't need half human/half pig.  I don't know why we're breeding them, I don't know why we're mixing the DNA in the pigs and the people.  I think that's a really bad idea.  Now, you want to mix people and an animal?  Horses and Hillary Clinton.  "Give a horse a chance.  Give a horse Hillary's ankles."  What's wrong with us, pigs and people!  Horses and Hillary!  I mean, horses need cankles.  They have got a serious cankleage problem.  There's a serious cankle shortage in horses and I think we need to -- okay.  How about this?  Can't we just make a cart for the horse?  Can't we -- I mean, how about -- we kill the horse?  You can't live without the two front?  How about we cut off all the legs?  I'm being -- I know this sounds harsh but how about we cut off all the legs?  I mean, not all the way.  We cut them to the knees and we, like, glue hooves to their -- this can be done, to their knees so they don't have, you know -- look, I told you in the -- I'm not -- I'm not a vet, but I'm a thinker.  I don't know, but I don't think shooting them is the right thing.  I mean, is the billionaires that had these horses, I'm just -- I mean, don't you think that they owe it to the horse to be like, "Oh, you were a good horse until you broke your ankles; I'm going to sit you down if a big pile of horse, have you look at a hot horse over here.  I might milk you from time to time, you know what I'm saying, but I think you like that.  Here, have some more LSD."  I think the owners owe it to them.  Don't you think it's at least worth a try?  "Oh, Glenn, horses want to run.  They want to be free.  The horse wouldn't enjoy life at all if he couldn't run around."  Really?  You really think you enjoy some guy wearing a dopey outfit jumping on him and saying run faster, run faster, run faster, run fast until he breaks his ankles because got didn't think, "Oh, no, Hillary's the only one with fat legs, she needs those.  Next time I see Hillary Clinton running around a racetrack in her bare feet coming out of the gate, yeah, then I'll thing she needs those cankles.  In the meantime, give them the horses.  And I don't understand how they can break -- again, it's not like we're running them on asphalt.  They're running in the dirt.  From the makers of your weak ankles comes the track.  It's a dirt track made by God, and they even, like, make sure all the rocks are out of it.  God didn't even do that.  We had to invent a tractor to make sure there was nothing in your path.  And like you like to run.  Horses like to run.  Every time they run on something where we raked it so no rocks are there, nothing can hurt them and cause a booboo, they break their ankles.  And every time I see a horse at a farm in a giant field, you know what they're doing?  They are just standing there eating.  They are not running around.  I never see them running around.  They are just eating.  They look up at you like, "Wouldn't you like to be me right now?"  No, because I'd have to stand and eat all the time.  Can't I just sit down?  I think I would have to stand and sleep.  I don't want to sleep standing up.  What a nightmare that would be.  Oh, he's worrying about you are going to fall over?  It's a bad -- that's a bad life.  I think if I had to sleep standing up and eat -- I mean, and eat standing up?  I think I would want my legs amputated.  Just take you down to the butt so I can just sit here.  I'm closer to the ground.

News flash to horse racing fans.  I don't think the horses really want to run around for you, for entertainment.  I'm just -- I mean, I think horses are nice animals that just want to help out.  They have been screwed by the car.  That's what it is.  Now horses are going, "We were so popular.  Everybody loved us.  I mean, what happened?  I mean, now, you know, oh, you got your new shiny new love machine, yeah.  I mean, we used to be able to crap in the streets, they would take us places, we would be with the family.  Now they just put us out to pasture and shoot us when we can't run fast enough."

I blame Ford.  That's who I blame.  The Depression rates for horses must be outrageous.  I mean, they were for centuries carrying us around.  Everywhere we wanted to go:  Hey, horse.  And then we would give them a nice brushdown at the end of the day.  Then we invented the car.  That's really when it went south for the horse, it is.  That's it.  I mean, we're like, hmmm, you're great and everything, but you've got one horsepower.  You know what I'm saying?  So how do we repay them for the centuries of work?  Run faster.  You're in second?  We put you down.  "That's sidebar, your Honor."  That's probably the best thing about the horse race this weekend.  If you had your kids there, you could teach them a lesson.  "That's what happens to kids who are in second place."  Yeah, now how much do you want to succeed?  "Daddy, we'll do that to you, too."  "What was your test score again?  I'm looking forward to your report card, son."  I think we need to come up with a better system for the horse.  I don't know what it is.  Maybe it's universal horse care.  I don't know.  I don't know how many of these horses have insurance.  You know what I think it is?  I think that a horse vet, I think once they are really good at being a horse vet because all they do is they're like, "Yeah, got to put them down."  What?  "Yeah, nothing we can do."  "He lost a tooth."  "Got to shoot him in the head."  I think -- you know what?  I think the really good horse veterinarians, I think when they leave that, they immediately go to work behind the genius counter at Apple because that's who those people are.  They're horse vets.  You bring in your computer and you're like, "The letter C keeps sticking."  "Let me just listen to it here."  Then they put their ear up to it like they're like, like the computer's like, "Help me, help me, I'm broken over here."  They put it up to their ear.  "Yep, got to put it down."  "Really?  You can't fix it?"  "Nope.  Got to shoot it.  Need a new one."  "Didn't I see you at the derby?"  "Don't know what you're talking about."

You know what we should do?  I think we should come up with a -- you know those stupid segways that only geeks have?  Seriously, I mean, I didn't want to break it to Michael Bublé but I saw him backstage a couple of weeks ago and he had a segway.  Now, that's cool because you are only bringing it back, you know, backstage but don't ever be seen in public, Michael, on a segway.  It makes you a geek.  It does.  I think the seg -- because they have got to be piled up around somewhere.  Who knows.  I mean, mall security.  You want to look like a guy from mall security, get yourself a segway.  Congratulations, you're a loser.  I think that all the extra segways that are sitting on some lot somewhere, I don't even know, are they -- you know, are they -- I don't even know where you buy them but they are sitting on some lot some place just being rained on all the time.  I say we take them and we strap them to the legs of horses.  You break your ankle, great, we give you LSD and strap a couple of segways to you and you're set.  Now you can run/roll wherever you want.  You'll never fall down.  It will be great for them sleeping.  It's got that gyroscope thing in it so you never fall down.  It's fantastic for horses.  I mean, this is the home of capitalism, jeez, for the love of Pete we can't -- I mean, we can't come up with something?  Have I thought about this too much this weekend?  It was a slow weekend at my house.  Maybe it's just me.

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."
