Jay Carney knows three Hilary Rosens

[gbtvembed content_id="20574145"]

Yesterday the White House press corps had a few questions for Jay Carney about Hilary Rosen’s relationship with the White House. The Romney camp made a claim that Rosen had visited the White House thirty-five times; surely the White House Press Secretary would have been aware of this and ready to answer questions on Rosen’s ties to the Obama Administration …right?

Eh …not so much. Here is what Jay Carney had to say when asked about Rosen’s visits to the White House and relationship with the Obama Campaign:

“First of all, I have not spoken with the President about this, so I don’t have anything to report to you on that.”

So after “filibustering for twenty-five minutes,” as Glenn put it, the best answer Jay Carney has for the press is that he hasn’t spoken to the President?

“In other words, it’s true,” Stu said. “You don't get in middle of one of these controversies, and this answer is not on the tip of his tongue if there's an answer.”

“He goes back to that all the time,” Pat added.

“Does this guy ever speak to the President?” Glenn asked. “The only time you – the only time you listen to Jay Kearney, and it's an important question.  He always answers the same.  I haven't spoken to the President about this.”

Here’s more of what Carney had to say:

"Secondly, I think we can all agree, Democrats and Republicans, that raising children is an extremely difficult job. That is true for all mothers, as well as fathers. But, we should focus on where we disagree. It is not coincidental that the very first piece of legislation that this President signed was the Lilly Ledbetter Free Pay Act. It had passed the Congress, and the President signed it into law. Why did it take President Obama coming into office, being sworn into office to have the fair pay act? Because Republicans overwhelming opposed it."

In other words, we all agree – also, Republicans are evil and hate women. “They hate women and that’s just the way it is,” Glenn joked.

“The first thing he did was pass the Lilly Ledbetter Law, and then he proceeded to pay women 18 percent less in the White House than men,” Pat pointed out. “Isn’t that fascinating?”

It’s likely that almost all of the women who are standing with the President on “women’s rights” would be fascinated by this information. However, it’s likely this is one of the very few issues, outside of his desire to redistribute wealth, that President Obama is fairly consistent on.

“Before he got into office he paid women 87 cents on the dollar,” Pat pointed out. “That's 13 percent less.”

So, Carney can’t confirm the White House visits, Republicans hate women, but what about Rosen’s relationship to the administration? Here is what he had to say:

“First of all I haven't seen the records.  I don't know that Hilary Rosen.  I know three personally. So I’m not sure that those records represent the person we’re talking about …necessarily.”

This is the only group of people that know more than one Bill Ayers, more than one Jeremiah Wright, and now three Hilary Rosens?

“That’s the thing though,” Stu said, “When it was Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright, they said these were not the same people. This time they’re like ‘hmmm, I’m not sure, it could have…we know so many’.”

Glenn joked that the only thing Jay Carney hasn’t done to try and avoid answering questions about this administration is yelling, “LOOK!” and running away from the press corps.

“If this were Canada I had be laughing so hard,” Glenn said.

Unfortunately, it’s not.

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.

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.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.
