Two competing philosophies

On TheBlaze TV Monday night, Glenn spent some time addressing two competing philosophies that are dominating the talk among the election. Those two philosophies are (using Glenn's favorite food metaphor): There is the idea that there is a finite amount of pie in the world, and the competing idea that we are all bakers and can make more pie.

What does this mean? Basically that there are some people who believe that there is only a limited amount of wealth (or pie) out there, and we are all struggling to get a piece. On the other hand, there are people who believe that you can go out and create more wealth and that your benefit doesn't come at the hands of someone else's failure.

Glenn used France as an example to illustrate this contrasting philosophy. In France, the Socialist President plans to increase the taxes on people who make over a million euro to seventy-five percent. If you're a small business owner that makes a million euro a year and have a plan to expand and make ten million euro a year, would you want to do it if the government got to keep 7.5 million euro of it? Probably not. The socialists philosophy kills the desire for individual innovation. Meanwhile, France's richest man is eyeing a move to Belgium. It's the same as when it happens in the US - New York and California raise the taxes so high people have almost no choice but to move to Texas and Florida.

Glenn then referenced an article he read over the week that laid out the differences between how "rich" people and "average" people think. While he didn't agree with every point, he did find some illuminating:

3. Average people have a lottery mentality. Rich people have an action mentality.

5. Average people long for the good old days. Rich people dream of the future.

8. Average people set low expectations so they're never disappointed. Rich people are up for the challenge.

17. Average people focus on saving. Rich people focus on earning.

18. Average people play it safe with money. Rich people know when to take risks.

"There is a difference between people," Glen said. "We're all created equal, yes, but we don't end equal." he said.

The great thing about America is that you can dream as big or small as you want, and it's up to you to build whatever you want. That essence of America is why people have always flocked to America - it's the land of opportunity.

But under the current administration, that mindset has changed to one where we now dream of only being middle class, and being a success isn't something that anyone can achieve. Instead, the new narrative is a select one percent get all the wealth and the rest are left fighting over the scraps. The solution? Divide the whole pie equally rather than encourage people to make more pie (see how it all ties back to food?).

Glenn returned the opening question of his monologue which prompted this discussion of two philosophies: Are you better off than you were four years ago? The answer is no. Not only is America still struggling, but the attitude of "tomorrow will be better" is diminishing.

Watch the opening of the monologue below:

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
