Glenn's getting a hybrid?


Is Glenn really thinking about giving up his super stretched Escalade and buying a hybrid?

GLENN:  It's the humane thing to do, drill right through his head to get the oil.  I mean, we had John McCain on Friday and he was like, I can't -- I would just as soon drill in the Grand Canyon as in the ANWR.  Really?  Do we have oil in the Grand Canyon?  Because I'm with you on that.  Oh, you were being sarcastic.  I'm not.  I mean, people just don't understand we can't live without oil.  Maybe we can in 50 years.  Maybe we can in 20 years.  Maybe we can in 10 but that's like me saying, Oh, you know what?  I'm not going to buy a new car.  My car breaks down.  It's on its last legs.  There's no way I'm going to make it home and every mechanic has said, boy, you're in real trouble, you don't replace this car.  Don't worry about it.  I'm going to poop out a hybrid around 2:00 this afternoon.  "You're going to what?"  "Yeah, I think I ate enough fiber and everything, I think I can poop out some sort of a hybrid today that I'm going to take home."  "Okay.  Well, until you actually do that, you might want to go to the GM dealer and get yourself another car."  "No, no, I'm going to just keep on working on pooping out this hybrid."  That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard!  When you actually poop it out and we drive it around for a while, we know that it works, that's great.  Until that time, we should probably go to the automakers and get one.  What do you say?  Who's with me on that one?  Oh, yeah, I'm just going to -- you know what we're going to do, alternative energy.  Mmm-hmmm.  When we have it, you let me know.  But everything we ever come up with, with alternative energy:  "Oh, no, but not that one.  That one's bad.  That one's bad."  Okay, I'm down to a campfire.  "But you have smoke in the air and you're burning the forest."  It's a campfire!  I don't have anything left!  "Yeah, mmm-hmmm, I know, but we're going to work on some alternative energy."  Oh, these people drive me crazy.

By the way, you know I'm doing this -- these commercials for GM and this is not a commercial.  I do these commercials for GM and every couple of weeks they give me another vehicle to drive, et cetera, et cetera.  I drove their Tahoe hybrid for the last three or four days.  That thing is fantastic.  I just bought a Denali and a Escalade.  I have two GM cars not because -- I never got a special deal or anything else.  I buy them from a friend of mine down in Florida and love them.  Love them both.  I am ready to sell both of them.  They're less than a year old each.  This Tahoe, it's a hybrid, gets 8 miles more per gallon, gets 22 miles per gallon.  It's fantastic.  It's electric V-8/V-4.  The thing has -- what are you looking at me like that, Stu?

STU:  So it runs as a V-4, a V-8 and a hybrid separately?

GLENN:  Yeah, at some point it runs as a -- it's wild to drive.  At some point it is an electric, at some point it's just a V-4 and then when you need it, it's a V-8.  The thing has guts to it.  I mean, I hate to -- I hate to discredit government mandates, you know, and all those people who are forcing us to, you know, "Well, you've got to..." I hate to discredit that by saying, hey, here's a vehicle that I actually like, works really well.  I like it more than the Escalade and the Denali and it's great on fuel economy.  That's great.

STU:  So when did you get the letter from the Government that you had to buy it?

GLENN:  I didn't.  I didn't, uh-huh.

STU:  No, but how else would you understand to buy a product?

GLENN:  I don't, I know.  And you know the thing I really like about it?  I don't know if it's just because this is a test, this is a loaner thing that the, you know, Detroit sends this out to me with like this -- I don't know.  Have you ever seen them with the big hybrid sticker on them?  The Denali is made -- I mean, the Tahoe and the Yukon I think are the same thing hybrid but I'm having -- right now I'm driving the Tahoe.

STU:  But have you seen them with the big huge hybrid on the side?  Beck)

STU:  Says hybrid in big letters?

GLENN:  It's got to be, what is that, six inches?  Got to be six inches all across the said, says hybrid and then across the back window it says hybrid.  You've never driven in New York City in an SUV until you've had somebody pound on a -- "You don't need..."  I'm not kidding you, pound on your hood, "You don't need a car this big."  I rolled down the windows.  "Yes, I do.  I've got dead bodies of liberals in the back.  I need them as big as they come.  Want to see it?"  Until you've driven, you know, and people are pounding on your hoods, you know, I'll just take the pavement -- I'm thinking about just putting hybrid on the side of the car.

STU:  That was the goal of our stickers, the hybrid -- what was it, hydro?

GLENN:  Hydrocarbon.

STU:  Hydrocarbon powered eco vehicle?

GLENN:  Hydrocarbon powered eco vehicle.  It's fantastic, absolutely fantastic.  But anyway, it's the new hybrid from GM, not a commercial.

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."
