2012 Depression

Another candidate threw their name in the hat today, but it doesn't help that the current frontrunners all seem kind of...bad. Romney is talking about global warming, Palin has another controversy, Pawlenty flirted with Cap & Trade as governor, Newt Gingrich was interesting in 1994, Rick Santorum may not have the funding. Is Obama beatable? Maybe.

The guys started off with Romney, who said, "I believe the world's getting warmer. I can't prove that, but I believe basically what I read is that the world is getting warmer. No. 2, I believe the humans are contributing to that. I don't know how much our contribution is to that because I know there have been periods of greater heat and warmth past."

Glenn said, "Three years ago, I think it was three or four years ago when we were writing one of the books I said that the world is getting warmer. You have to look at the thermometer. Is the world getting warmer? Yes or no. Now, does man contribute to that? I don't know. Should we be responsible? Yeah. We should take care of the planet. We should do what we can do burn clean energy, to do the things that we have to do to take care of the planet. Yes. Is this what Mitt Romney is saying or not? I have no idea."

" Do you have to go any farther than Romneycare? No, you don't. We've been trying to say, well, yeah, it's going to be hard for him and then he does this dumb thing over the weekend. Wake up! Either you're a conservative now or you're not. Which is it, Mitt? Which is it? And he's still walking that fine line," Pat said.

Just five minutes into the radio, Glenn was begging someone to name a good candidate. "Because I might just take some hemp and start fashioning a rope to hang myself. Name them," Glenn joked.

Pawlenty?

"His name kind of sound -- it reminds me of polenta which I like, you know. My wife makes a mean polenta. So, I could go for Tim Polenta. I would be, like, Okay, that sound good. Is he going to give us food, yummy from the oven? Tuscany sounds good. So, yeah, I can go for that but then it also sounds like placenta and that's not good. So, I'm back to where I was at the beginning. He could be either good or bad and I don't know which one," Glenn joked.

Gingrich?

"I had this weird vision this weekend that Newt Gingrich was this election's John McCain where he's, like -- he's a big name and then completely invisible for, like, six months and then all of the sudden -," Stu said.

Bachmann?

Glenn thinks the media will tear her apart and we'll all be stuck defending her rather than hearing her debating the issues. "You think what they do to Sarah Palin is bad? Oh, my gosh. Wait until Michelle Bachmann wins in Iowa. Wait until she wins in Iowa," he said.

Before this goes any further, all of these candidates should declare with 'certitude' they don't have any pictures of themselves in their underwear.

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.
