Leftists defend sending SCARCE baby formula to the border

By Staff, Glenn Beck

May 13, 2022

The Washington Post can go to hell, Glenn says. Its recent article — ‘The faux outrage that Biden is stockpiling baby formula for undocumented immigrants’ — proves what’s wrong with the leftists today. The Biden administration IS sending baby formula to migrants at the border, while American parents are struggling to find it in stores. So why is the outrage deemed ‘fake’ by the mainstream press? Sure, Glenn says, ALL babies should have access to the food they need...babies at the border included. But shouldn’t we prioritize Americans BEFORE we ship scarce items elsewhere?

GLENN: Okay. So I cannot take it anymore. The Washington Post, the faux outrage that Biden is stockpiling baby formula for undocumented immigrants. That's the headline, okay?

Here's what happened. Kat Cammack, she's a congressperson from Florida. Said, while mothers and fathers stare at empty grocery shelves in panic, the Biden administration is happy to provide baby formula to illegal immigrants coming across our southern border. Yet, this is another, in a long line of reckless, out of touch priorities from the Biden administration. All right? Governor Abbott came out and said the same thing. You see the American government, sending by the pallet, thousands and thousands of containers of baby formula to the border.

That makes my blood boil.

All right. Okay. So the Washington Post, decides to debunk this. This is what they've come out with. They called the Department of Homeland Security.

CPB, takes seriously its legal responsibility to ensure the safety and security of individuals, in our custody. Ensuring migrants, including children with infants in our custody, have their basic needs met, is in line with the administration's commitment to ensuring safe, orderly, and humane processes at our border.

CPB complies with all applicable regulations for the purchase of products used in our facilities. Now, they go on to say, Trump did this. Trump did this.

And so the Washington Post conclusion, this is ridiculous faux outrage. The shortage of baby formula is a serious issue. The administration is seeking to address.

But at the same time, the administration can't be faulted for following the law. Providing baby formula to undocumented immigrants. And anyone who suggests this is a result of specific Biden policies, is reckless. And out of touch. And they earned four Pinocchios. Go to hell, Washington Post.

STU: So wait. So the accusation is: We say Biden is doing X, and the Washington Post says, that's a lie. Four Pinocchios. They're doing X, but they think it's the right thing to do.

GLENN: Yes. Yes. So it's not a lie. There are pallets of baby formula, going to our border, and being hoarded for illegals.

Now, it's required by law. However, why would you follow that law? Look, I don't want any babies, anywhere. To not have formula. Even illegals on our border. However, why follow that law, when you're not following other laws, like don't understand let them here in the first place?

This is -- we've gone from a country where our president was America first. Okay? And everybody in the media had such a problem. America first. That's so hate-mongering. Oh, my gosh.

We are literally now, America last. This guy -- this is honestly -- this is what you do, if you hate your country.

And your fellow countrymen. This is what you do. You have food shortages. You have baby formula shortages. You apply, the law, at the border, on baby formula, but you don't apply the law, and you have millions of people coming in.

STU: And when you're struggling, it's the time to make sure that those border laws are even more strict. Right? To make sure that we don't have resources that our people need, applied in the wrong areas.

GLENN: We are about to pay the highest gas price anyone in America has ever paid. Yesterday, we found out, that the Biden administration, decided to not auction off leases, at a very, very oil-rich area.

They decided, no. You know what, we're not going to auction those leases. And instead, we are tapping into our strategic oil reserve. We're on the verge of war, and they're tapping into the strategic oil reserve.

They're not replacing any of it. They can't replace any of it. And they're not opening it up for America. They're sending our strategic petroleum, over to Europe.

America first? No. This is America last.

You only do this if you hate your country. And I'm sorry. That is apparent. And I don't say -- they're not saying -- well, yes. Actually they are. Many are saying that.

Biden is not saying that. And they would -- oh, how dare you. 1800 Pinocchios on Glenn Beck. I'm judging you by what you do. You want to judge Christians. And you can, rightly so, judge Christians. As really, a lot of them, are hypocrites.

A lot of us. A lot of us, we say one thing. We do another. Okay?

So we're hypocrites. But we try, many of us, try to be better.

Your actions are everything you're doing is destroying our nation, and your learning curve is beyond flat. Your learning curve goes down. It gets worse, every day.

So I don't -- I don't know what to -- I don't know what to say. Let just start call a spade a spade. And that is the truth. This administration, every single policy is helping to destroy this nation. And, you know, judging by your actions, you hate America. And America comes last. By the way, just to give you some -- some real news from the Babylon Bee, reports yesterday poured in that thousands of babies have been smuggling themselves into Ukraine, dressed as Ukrainian soldiers. The refugee infants say they are seeking leftovers from the federal aid Biden has sent over to Ukraine.

Other babies at the border, the oldest baby speaking for the group, through a baby translator said, we trust our leaders to prioritize aid distribution, as they did with the billions to promote worldwide gender equity, billions in weapons, as a going away present for the Taliban in Afghanistan. Or this breathtaking act of generosity. Amid America's most severe recession in years.

This is sad! The only thing that's absurd about it, is that it's a baby saying that.

But it's try. It's true. It's breath taking. We've been so generous. To the Taliban.

We are now so generous to the people of Ukraine. And I like that.

I mean, I like the fact that America is always the first to help, but not at our expense. How are we going to help anybody? When we're crippled? How are we going to be the most charitable nation on earth, when you don't own anything. You don't have anything.

When you can't the travel. You know, they're talking now about this summer, probably going in -- possibly going into gas rationing.

If you can't afford to drive across the country, if you can't afford to go on vacation. And your car -- you're not truly free. You are not free when it is government-caused. Look, there's no -- there's no such thing as you have a guaranteed right to be able to fill up your gas tank. That's not possible.

But when the government intentionally sabotages the oil and gas industry, well, they are taking away your God-given right to free movement.

STU: Despite 109,000-dollar Tesla. If you just have a Tesla. Steven Colbert has one, why don't you have one?

GLENN: Yeah. And let me tell you something. I think Ricky Gervais, came up with -- he didn't know this. But have you seen his show Afterlife. It is -- very dark. But hysterical. Just hysterical. At one point, he's a reporter. He and his photographer go out. There's this little teeny newspaper, and they always just do stories about the local people in the news in England.

And he and his photographer, go out, at one point, because, well, it's a baby milk episode. And this woman has decided, she can -- she can do all kinds of things. Listen to this scene.

VOICE: Well, I didn't breast-feed this time. Not convenient.

Obviously, I'm still lactating, so I thought, waste not. Want not. So I expressed and started making rice puddings.

VOICE: Out of your breast milk. Good idea.

VOICE: And it's all natural if you think about it. Isn't it?

The people to eat your pudding made from human milk. That's what we are used to, isn't it?

VOICE: When we were babies, maybe. And making rice puddings. Do other people like this?

VOICE: Yeah. They lap it up.

VOICE: And they know it's your breast milk?

VOICE: Yeah.

VOICE: Who eats these?

VOICE: Mr. Crosby at number five. He can't get enough. I mean, I can't make huge puddings. Sometimes I have to top it off with cow's milk. Anyway, do you want to try?

VOICE: All right. No. We're fine. Thank you.

GLENN: Oh. The photographer. Oh.

VOICE: Are you okay?

VOICE: No. Slurp it up. Lap it up. Oh, God.

VOICE: Oh, God.

(laughter)

VOICE: Change the subject.

VOICE: So for the bread, I use my vaginal yeast.

(laughter)

VOICE: Thank you.

VOICE: You never need to use your own vagina yeast to make bread. If you're making bread, oh, we've run out of yeast. Oh, I know. I can just forget it. I'll go to the shop, so we get a loaf of dough. You still got milk.

(laughter)

GLENN: So, I mean -- we got a plan for food shortages.

STU: This is how they're going to do it now?

GLENN: Yeah. I think so.

STU: I would not be surprised to see Biden --

GLENN: Wait until I tell you something else, they're now doing at Mattel. And, you know, I don't have a problem with this. But you know the slippery slope. You know where this is going to end.
