A domain name worth more than Disney?

There were a few things bothering Glenn this morning, one of them was Facebook. Facebook was valued at $60 billion more than the Disney – why? What are they creating that is so valuable? Pointing to the dot com bubble, Glenn explained that you’re not left with any tangible assets. If a company like Disney goes belly up you could sell movies, networks like ESPN, three theme parks, etc. – but with Facebook Glenn noted, “In the end, all I’m really buying is a domain name.”

Glenn, who is obviously not anti-internet or social media, made sure to point out that Facebook has obvious upsides. “900 million people connect through Facebook,” he said. “It is the wave of the future.”

Last Friday, Glenn touched on the IPO and the lunacy of the conversation that was occurring in the media over its price point – all of the “experts” were saying, “is it $100 billion or $116 billion.”

Even the president’s favorite banker Jamie Dimon at J.P. Morgan Chase was involved, as was Morgan Stanley. “The president doesn’t trust anyone on Wall Street, but he trusts these guys,” Glenn said sarcastically. "You know, Jamie Dimon and J.P. Morgan Chase, they have a million dollars of the president's own money, and they are some of the best bankers in the world right there at J.P. Morgan Chase and Jamie Dimon."

While Greece and Europe are in turmoil and the Euro is on the brink, the mainstream media completely shifted focus to …Facebook? Really? There were a very small handful of people that point to the fact that a lot people could lose a lot of money on this.

Surprise, surprise, there were a few facts that most people didn’t hear about last week regarding Facebook. Like the way the IPO was evaluated, or that the guy who did the IPO for Facebook is the same guy who did the IPO for General Motors for the government. General Motors also came out last week and said they were ending all of their advertising with Facebook and the Super Bowl. Glenn said that the reason given by GM was “it’s pricey” and “it doesn’t work.”

“Okay, wait a minute,” Glenn started, “Hand on just a second. 900 million people connect on Facebook. You’re going to get out of the Facebook business, General Motors… Government Motors? And then you’re going to get out of the Super Bowl? So your advertising executives are third graders, you’re broke, or something else is going on.”

At first Glenn thought that General Motors was just broke, but then after taking a step back to look at the big picture, the Facebook issue stood out at him. “Everybody is on the bandwagon except General Motors? Why is that? Why are they getting out of the Facebook business, while everybody on the planet is going this direction?” Glenn asked.

Glenn noted that unless Facebook increases its revenue by 47% for the next three years it will collapse – something that nobody talked about last week. Now it’s being reported that the banks made about $100 million off of this, and now the left is coming out against Facebook and demonizing them.

“I thought these were the greatest people ever? I thought the president loved these guys?” Glenn asked. “I thought the president said how great Facebook was because it was leading ‘change’ – people were connecting with it all over the world and it was the leader in revolution? He held a rally at Facebook and now, all of a sudden, they’re evil? Huh.”

Experts are also coming out now and saying that this could be the Black Swan event if Facebook doesn’t make their 47% increase in profit for the next three years. It could implode and bring down the entire economy.

Glenn pointed out that, like most people, if everything did crash, he’d rather have a roller coaster and the assets of Disney, but the government on the other hand, what would they rather have in their pocket in the event of a market and/or economic collapse?

“If I was the government, wouldn't that be great to have an asset like Facebook?” Glenn asked. Especially if you had the kind of ideas of Cass Sunstein or Mark Lloyd where you needed to control the media? Well, this is the new media. Wouldn't it be great? Think of the money we could save. Think of the money we could save, because remember one of the first things that Barack Obama did is say, "I've got to archive all of the Facebook posts. I've got to archive all of those because it's so important to our culture. What do you think of the money we'll save in the archives, if we just helped them or bailed them out – had access, had control?" What a great asset that would be for the United States of America.”

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."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
