Not Watching

GLENN: Putting the radio back into Radio City, hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. My name is Glenn Beck. From the frozen, snowy northern hitherland. My goodness, we've got -- they are saying now maybe 12 inches of snow. And let me tell you something. There is nothing better than anywhere from one to 12 inches of snow in the Manhattan area. It doesn't affect traffic or people at all. It's fantastic. But the good news is now we can be trapped into our homes and into apartments all through the weekend so we can just, we can have anticipation build for the Oscars. I don't know about you, but I'm not going to watch the Oscars. So there you go.



Celebrate the Oscars by purchasing our exclusive, 'Michael Moore is Fat' t-shirt!

Did you see that Michael Moore is, you know, debating on who he's going to take to the Oscars? I told you yesterday he was thinking -- you know, he said, "It would really cause a lot of controversy if I brought Castro." Yes, I guess it would. It's like Steven Spielberg. "Wouldn't it be great if I showed up, give my award for Schindler's List if I could just bring Hitler. Wouldn't that be great?" Oh. You know what, I haven't -- and maybe it's just me. I don't think it is. Have movies gotten worse? Are we just onto Hollywood? Is it that we expect to be preached at in Hollywood? Is that what it is? I don't know. I just don't go to the movies anymore. And I used to -- I was a guy who used to go to two movies on a Saturday. I love movies. I just don't see them anymore. I don't know what it is. What was that, Charlie Wilson's War? I can't tell you how many people said, oh, you've got to go see Charlie Wilson's War. You'll love it. No, no, uh-uh, not going to see it. And I know now from friends who have seen it, it has nothing to do with the war, it's not preachy at all, I just don't trust it. What is it, there will be blood? Oh, it's about the evil oil companies? Supposed to be great. I just don't really want to see anything Hollywood made about evil oil companies. You know what I mean? It's like, honestly it's like expecting, you know, the American people to go out and see movies done by Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity. I mean, there will be a certain population that will go but not really. I mean, you know what I mean? It's from one point of view. Unfortunately unlike those movies, these movies that they're making are so wildly out of step with the average person in America. Nobody -- who wants to go see that? I swear to you. And even the advertisements. The advertisement, the way they -- what was the movie that came out? Was it Charlie Wilson's War? Stu, do you remember? What was the movie that came out? I think it was Charlie Wilson's War that was so misadvertised that it just seemed like, oh, no. It's a propaganda movie.

STU: You might be right on that. I thought it was one of Chris Balfe's, I think saw Michael Clayton and was talking about it like that which was the George Clooney flick.

GLENN: Yeah. And what was it, what was the message in that? And he said that it was the -- he said, I saw that -- I just didn't want to see it because it was a message movie and as it turns out, it's not a message movie. But it's got George Clooney in it. It's got to have a message in it. You know, we're working on our Christmas stage show and we have a Broadway director that we're trying to do work with and my daughter was just in a play, Stephen Sondheim play and, you know, she was in it, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. We went to it and I was talking to this director and he said, what play was she in? And I told him and he said, oh, I hate that play. And I said, really? And he said, yes, I don't understand it. And I said, what do you mean? And he said, what's the message behind it? And I'm like, boy, we're talking to the wrong director. I said, what do you mean what's the message behind it? He said, what does this represent? What does that represent? What is the message behind it? And I said, that's why I love this play. There were no messages. I have no idea if there was a message in it and if it was a message, I think I kind of agree with it. Stop with the messages. Oh, it drives me crazy. And so you watch these things. They even -- it's almost like they're intentionally trying to sabotage themselves. Were you watching these? You know it's like if they remade movies now, you know, they would position them in such a way -- okay, try this on for size. "The two biggest issues in America today collide together for the first time on the big screen: Global warming and healthcare. You'll be gripping the edge of your seat as you take a journey with one Midwestern woman's wild escape from global warming as she flees into exile and meets up with three amazing friends with one common plight: They all need medical care and organs to survive. But a struggle to live without any universal healthcare coverage. Will a Democrat get elected in time to give them universal healthcare? Will the Government help and stop tornadoes caused by global warming, or will the evil Republicans give tax credits to the wealthiest 1% and let them all die? See the Wizard of Oz." That's the way they would do it. Now it would be -- now you would watch the Wizard of Oz and the wizard would be something, you know, some evil Republican who had never any intention of helping these people. He hates little people. The Government, he would just be taking all the money for himself. The tin man and the scarecrow, it would all represent some sort of universal health coverage.

Do you have any music? Because I've got a couple of these. Do you have any music? Roll it if you have it, Dan.

STU: Hold on one second. We're having a tech problem as usual.

GLENN: That is the crappiest network show ever. Has anybody -- have we reminded anyone that we're a network show? Oh, and you know what? I just forgot. We're number 3. Number 2 tries harder. Number 3 stinks.

STU: Yeah, number 2 and number 1, they have all their stuff totally working.

GLENN: All right. Do we have that computer working? Otherwise we're just going to move on.

STU: Yeah, he's loading it right now on computer Number 19. We're going to try it.

GLENN: Computer Number 19. What happened to it?

STU: It's magical.

GLENN: Here we go. Are you ready? Go ahead.

VOICE: Power-seeking politicians have no mercy when it comes to starting war for oil, but what happens when technology expands beyond the atmosphere, when space travel is as easy as activating the hyperdrive? The endless potential for power and control of the universe becomes too much for evil politicians to resist. Entire planets are destroyed. Billions of lives are lost, and military industrial complex rules the universe. This summer see Star Wars.

GLENN: Huh? Now how much do you want to see "Star Wars"?

STU: That worked perfectly, I think.

GLENN: Never! Try this one. Go ahead with it.

VOICE: When giant bank corporations have their backs up against the wall, they don't take it lying down. Follow one good local man's journey as he's forced by an evil corporation to jump off a snowy bridge and kill himself, only to have an angel save him and show him how horrible the world would be without him. If only everyone who was forced to commit suicide because of an evil giant corporation had an angel, which by the way don't exist -- save their life. See It's a Wonderful Life.

STU: I think they should have mentioned the sub prime crisis in there. That's the only thing.

GLENN: "You're losing your house. One man doesn't care." Try this one. "A common species with one uncommon characteristic, a tiny little difference in pigmentation has caused a world of hate. This winter don't miss the film that challenges conventional wisdom and shows black and white working together with all the gray areas in between. See Casablanca." All right, that's really only there because there's hate in it and it is black and white.

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."
