Michele Bachmann on Rumors of War III

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann joined Glenn on radio today to discuss GBTV’s new documentary, Rumors of War III, which debuted last night.

“I watched every second of the special you did last night,” the Congresswoman told Glenn. “It was spellbinding.”

Congresswoman Bachmann sits on the intelligence committee, and told Glenn’s listeners that she can confirm every word from Rumors of War III was accurate. “It’s absolutely profound,” she said.

The Congresswoman told Glenn that she wants people to be encouraged, because there are members of Congress that are on this issue. “I personally spend twenty-five to thirty hours every week just dealing with this problem. I think this is the number one issue facing our country right now. People have no idea how far, how deep, how wide the Muslim Brotherhood has penetrated the upper echelons here in the United States,” Congresswoman Bachmann explained. “Martin Dempsey, the top military man in the United States, the chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, just said yesterday he ordered government censorship and a purging of any reference to Islam or Islamic training out of the military training material.”

She added that the removal of Islam and Islamic training also occurred in the FBI last October. She told Glenn that when this occurred, she demanded that she be allowed to review the material that was purged from the FBI. These materials are training our FBI agents how to spot the motivation behind terrorists.

“Just think about this, the Muslim Brotherhood has the power and the influence to purge out of the military, the FBI, and the State Department, any reference to Islam. This is profound, and this is done, in particular, because our Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed an executive order against defamation of religion,” the Congresswoman told Glenn, “but it's really all about Islam. To make sure that we purge out of our government any reference to Islam in a negative way. Damn what the facts are on the ground, there is a purging that's going on. But, it is censorship, because, by definition, censorship means the government withholding information, and that's what we're seeing play out.”

Congresswoman Bachmann told Glenn that she has been organizing a group in Congress that meets to discuss this issue on a weekly basis. Rep. Allen West, who was part of last night’s documentary, is one of the members of Congress is this group. She explained that, essentially, they’re a caucus that focuses on the issue of penetration from the Muslim Brotherhood and jihad in the capital and in our government. “Our goal is to educate every member that we can. We want every member of Congress to watch your documentary,” she told Glenn. “Frank Gaffney also has a documentary series. You had the finest people on the couch last night – Andy McCarthy, you had General Boykin, Diana West. You had your own adviser on national security. There are really good people, and they’re all trustworthy, and that’s what we’re trying to do – educate people.”

Congresswoman Bachmann went on to explain that as a response to what was discussed in Rumors of War, they are in the process of putting a letter together to Hilary Clinton at the State Department, the chairs of the Committee of the State Department that oversee them, the Intelligence Committee, and also to the military. They are demanding that the Inspector General of each of these departments look over the penetrations of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Michele told Glenn that there are at least six people that they want a full investigation of. “Why are these people senior advisors to the president? Why are these people involved in actual on the government payroll in the State Department and in the Pentagon? We are demanding answers,” she said.

Glenn responded by saying that because the media is so involved with CAIR and ISNA, that this has to become a viral issue. He also added that there needs to be a way for the public to know who is working on this issue, so that the people can support them and get behind them.

“It is critical that people know who is working on this in D.C., because I have no doubt that there will be shenanigans with our elections,” Congresswoman Bachmann responded. “Right now it is civilization jihad. That was the term used last night on your couch. That exactly defines what this is. This is the enemy within to destroy our western civilization, and we’re being told to avert our gaze.”

Congresswoman Bachmann compared what we are being told to do right now, ignore the threats that are right in front of us, to what history has taught us will happen when we do this. “From my perspective our current president and the administration are the most dangerous on national security of any that we have ever had in the United States. They have literally opened the floodgate and they are allowing these people to come in,” she told Glenn.

Glenn asked the Congresswoman about the involvement of the President. What are we to think he is doing by allowing these things to go on along our border and in our government?

The Congresswoman explained that this is why the caucus she has organized will be calling individuals that need to be investigated by name. For example, she told Glenn, “our Secretary of State in the State Department is working with Tariq Ramadan. His grandfather started the Muslim Brotherhood and has terrorist ties to Hamas. He’s an advisor. He is on a committee advising our government. This will be in a letter that I am sending out and that I’ll be asking other members of Congress to sign onto for the Inspector General to answer the question: Why is this individual advising our Secretary of State and the President of the United States?”

Glenn explained that there is no way for the President to untangle himself for this. “He has just said he's going to help the small businesses through the Muslim Brotherhood. So there's another connection. He's also just said it's an end of the War on Terror,” Glenn said.

“I think we should take the Obama administration at their word. If you think truly and if you were saying it through your legitimate government channels that the war on terror is over, then I demand today that every service member in Afghanistan come home, today,” Congresswoman Bachmann said to Glenn. “But I was in Afghanistan this weekend, Glenn. I stood over the bed of a soldier in ICU whose legs had just been blown off in an explosion two hours earlier. I prayed for him. I will tell you the war on terror is not over. But, if the war on terror is over, then I demand that we disband the TSA at the airport today – if it's over, disband it. If it's over, take down all the barriers here in Washington, D.C.”

They went on to discuss President Obama’s record with the Muslim Brotherhood and his first foreign policy speech at the Center of Islamic Thought and Learning in Cairo, where he didn’t invite the President of the country he was speaking in [Mubarak].

Glenn explained that this documentary is the greatest gift to Mitt Romney in this election, and urged listeners to share it with their friends. To learn on to tweet, Facebook, and other ways to share Rumors of War III go here.

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.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."
