What’s Ann Coulter think of the RNC so far?

This morning on radio, Glenn was joined by one of the smart women in the media, the one and only Ann Coulter.

Ann Coulter, who was a Romney supporter during the primaries, and like most women in America today, had nothing but great things to say about his new running mate this morning

"Ryan was unbelievably great," she said. "Apparently you can criticize the current president without looking mean."

Ryan's speech last night was unlike any candidate had been able to deliver in that forum. He was able to rally the crowd behind Mitt Romney, criticize the president's leadership (or lack thereof), and provide and message of clear change - all while managing to look young, determined and optimistic.

"That was a flawless presentation," Glenn said of Paul Ryan's speech. "That was just a flawless speech. And he didn't seem nervous. At one point he just took a deep breath and stood there for a second and just exhaled and I thought, that's confidence, not arrogance. That's just confidence. He's comfortable in that space."

Ann agreed - she also had positive things to say about Ann Romney's speech and has high expectations for Mitt's speech this evening.

"I am laying bets with my friends that they are going to turn to me and say, "Wow, that was a really good speech." I've noticed that has been happening throughout this campaign, that the first time someone sees Romney give a full speech like after Iowa, after New Hampshire - the first time they actually listen to him give a speech, they always say, "Wow, I wish he always gave speeches like that." Well, he does always give speeches like that," she said.

As for what Mitt Romney needs to say tonight, Ann believes he's going to need to give a speech that isn't just appealing to the base. It needs to be something that is going to inspire people because it's inspiring, not just inspiring to Republicans.

Contrasting it to Chris Christie's speech, which Coulter was not a fan of. She didn't think he used his humor enough or was critical enough of Obama.

"I don't think he even mentioned Obama," Ann said.

Which he didn't, but that's why Glenn said he believed people outside of the political world liked the speech.

"I think the American public is so tired of having this debate. What I think Romney has to do tonight is just stand up and convince the American people he has a plan, he's an adult, he'll do it, and it will work," Glenn responded. "That's it."

Now that Ann agreed with. And that's what she believed Mike Huckabee and Paul Ryan did such a good job of last night. They were able to explain to the American people what a Romney/Ryan presidency will do to help the American people get back to work and help put the country back on a path of success and leadership.

However, Romney's strength is not bragging about himself, Ann explained.

"It's a virtue in a human being but perhaps a deficiency in a candidate: Romney absolutely will not brag about himself. And he's got a lot to brag about," She said. "He really does have a Midas Touch, as you say from the Olympics to all of these companies and he just, he's calm and as you say, adult like and he will take charge and I think he is just what the country needs right now. But we're the ones who have to say it about him. So your plan for him I think is very good."

Glenn shifted the conversation back to Huckabee's speech, which Ann had mentioned, she thought, was good. There is a widely-known relationship between Romney and Huckabee that most wouldn't describe as very friendly since critical comments Huckabee has made about Romney's Mormon faith.

During his speech last night Huckabee danced around the topic of Mitt Romney's faith and used the example of Catholicism to make his point that they're men of faith, which Glenn described as opening a door to show people what's inside, but not taking a step in. He went as far as he seemed to be willing to go.

"That was part of the reason I thought it was very strong, and he was winsome, as he usually is last night," she explained. And on the Catholic thing, I think to use an MSNBC expression, I think that was a dog whistle, i.e., it's an example that, you know, he's an evangelical but we're all Christians…"

Stu shifted the conversation back to the campaign, where he feel like there are finally two strong leaders on the ticket.

"We finally have two guys on the ticket with no weak points that are able to articulate these points," he said.

"It does feel like a first," Glenn added.

"I could not agree more," Coulter responded. "For one thing to have two articulate Republicans. We have two attractive, articulate Republicans with, forget skeletons. They don't even have closets. And they have, as you say, exactly the skills this country needs right now."

Ann's new book called Mugged comes out on September 25th.

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.
