The Oval: This movement is only getting stronger

Good afternoon.

At some point, I wonder when the mainstream media will realize that there is a revolution going on in this country. These reporters and producers think the biggest revolt in the past year was a bunch of heavily pierced young adults camping out in urban parks. If six of them got together and held up a sign, it was BIG NEWS! Lots of coverage.

But in the rest of the country, we didn’t really care. Why? Because we were working on a different revolution. A different movement. Call it the Tea Party movement.Call it the revolt of the true conservatives. Call it the Great Awakening. Call it whatever you want. But starting in 2009, it has been ringing up victories, large and small.

We won statehouses in Virginia and New Jersey. We won a Senate race in Massachusetts. Ted Kennedy’s seat. We won control of the House of Representatives. We won several primary elections against the old guard. And this past week, we won another. A firm victory for Ted Cruz, the Tea Party candidate for U.S. Senate in Texas. He was opposed by the party machinery. But we beat them. Just like we beat them in Indiana. And over in Georgia, they tried to jam a sales tax increase down our throats. To pay for all those new roads that are going to make us so successful. Voters hated the idea. Voted it down, by a huge margin.

So let me get this right. The man who sits at this desk right now thinks new roads make us successful. But the state of Georgia voted not to tax themselves to pay for more new roads. Guess that means one of two things: Either the voters in the state of Georgia don’t want to be wealthy, or the guy who sits in this chair doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

Think about that! The media played these items – another Tea Party victory in Texas… a tax rebellion in Georgia… like they were unexpected. But to anyone who is noticing… anyone who is paying any attention… none of this should have been surprising.

These events are part of a pattern. Part of a trend. Part of a revolution. And we are winning.

Sure, I wish we had a president who believed in the Constitution… who protected it… who fought for it. We don’t. I’m not sure we will ever have one who passes that test 100% of the time. So we may never have a Tea Party president. You never know… But we are forcing change. We are making things happen. Slowly, the Tea Party is rolling back the worst habits of American politics… the worst ideas of the punditocracy.

We are insisting on the kinds of things that Washington hasn’t treated seriously in many, many decades. Limited government. Individual liberty. The rights of Individuals guaranteed by the Constitution. The limits to State Power guaranteed by the Constitution. Rights and limits. You hear a lot about rights, but not enough about limits.

And that’s what’s changing. We’re bringing back the limits.

No, you can’t raise taxes to pay for roads you should have already built with the tax funds you already collected. No, you can’t pass laws and decide which ones to enforce and which ones not to enforce. No, you can’t pretend that the government doesn’t need to have a balanced budget, year after deficit-producing year. No, you can’t print money forever without destroying the wealth of the nation.

But no revolution in human history has ever succeeded by taking things away. You don’t inspire people by telling them “no” all the time. We have to be about creating something new. We have to bring something to the table.

And here’s the thing. We are.

We are a movement that shows… with our own example…That we are creating a new vision for America. A new vision that places the individual at the center of our country. At the heart.

The individual has work to do. Not be a vassal of the state. Not a recipient of state aid, from cradle to grave. Not someone whose success in life is “made for them” by the powers that be. No. Someone who makes their own way.Someone who earns their own living. Someone who supports their own family. Someone who feeds the hungry. Heals the sick. Embraces the lonely and the broken-hearted.

Because that’s part of our revolution, too.

Those of you who joined me last week at Cowboys Stadium heard this message. And you know that it’s important to me. We have to serve. We have to take back the work of our hearts. We can’t outsource love to the government. We have to bring back to our communities the work that government is trying to do in Washington.

Look, I don’t doubt that the other side has good intentions. Maybe they think they CAN do the work better than we can. Just like they think they can make better investment decisions than investors. Better hiring decisions than small business owners. Better medical decisions than doctors. Better loan decisions than bankers.

I get it. They think they’re smart. So why shouldn’t they think they care more about our communities than we do?

So it’s up to us to show them they don’t. It’s up to us to show them they can’t. It’s up to us to show them they won’t.

We’re on our way. We keep sending them the message. We keep sending them Congressmen and Senators committed to restoring the State to its proper, limited role. We keep voting down their tax increases. And we’ll keep doing it.

But our revolution is not just a political one. It’s not just an economic one. It’s a cultural one. We have to change the culture. We have to restore it.

Because when you lose the culture, all the political wins are temporary. When you lose the culture, you can lose your own kids.

Trust me, I’ve seen it.

So it’s not just enough to Restore Washington. We have to Restore Honor. Restore Courage. Restore Love.

And then, when we do all those things, maybe the mainstream media will finally realize what is happening. Of course, they may never get the memo. That’s OK. I’m not watching them anyway.

Thanks for watching.

May God bless you and may God bless the Republic.

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

wal_172619/Pixabay

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.

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

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.
