Ann Coulter on last night's debate: "You want this man in the White House"

Ann Coulter was one of the first conservatives in the media to say that Mitt Romney was going to be "the guy" for the GOP. She got a lot of heat for saying he was the best choice and Republicans best chance to win.

It looks like Ann was right.

"It was a bloodbath last night," Glenn said to Ann when she joined them on radio this morning.

"Yes, it was," she responded. "And as I said earlier this week to you, I thought just letting people get a look at him, what you and I have seen in him: he's smart, he's prepared, he's poised."

Not only did Mitt Romney win the debate hands down, he was able to present himself to the American people. So many Americans that aren't tuned into to politics only know what the mainstream media is saying about Mitt Romney. Last night he was able to present himself to the average American.

"People are just shocked to actually see Mitt Romney utterly in control of the facts and competent, and you so want that man in the White House.  The way he explains things with facts and figures, but not in a confusing way," Ann said. "And he just comes across as an incredibly decent man.  There's no elitism.  There's no, "Oh, he reminds me of my first husband" business.  He was charming, he was friendly.  Even when he was criticizing Obama policies, he always did it with a smile on his face, and it reminds me of during the primaries when I was a big Romney supporter and many of my friends and colleagues were not, and every time they would see Romney give a full speech such as after he won the Iowa caucus and then after he won New Hampshire, different people would say to me at different times, "Wow, that was the best speech he's ever given.  If he would only give them like that all the time." He does!  Watch him."

No one was really sure what Mitt Romney was going to do in this debate. The media, by underestimating him, actually raised the bar for what President Obama had to do as a result. But, no on expected the poor performance that Barack Obama gave last night. Glenn compared it to Al Gore's former presidential debate performances - the heavy sighs.

"He kept looking down and frowning," Glenn said. "Where Romney would look at the president, he addressed him in the eye, looked him in the eye the whole time.  It's one thing to say something about somebody behind their back.  It's another to look them in the eye and kindly say, "Mr. President, you're wrong." And he did. When Obama was trying to dish it, which was about four-seconds, when he was trying to dish it, he wouldn't look Romney in the eye.  He really wouldn't go after him and look him in the eye like a man."

Not only was Mitt Romney's demeanor stronger and more presidential, but his appearance was much stronger.

"I mean, Obama looks like a guy who has grown ‑‑ who's lost so much weight, he's wearing a suit that's too big for him.  He looks anemic," Ann added. "I seriously am wondering whether he's trying to communicate to us that he doesn't want this job anymore."

One of the most telling parts of the debate for the president was the closing.

"Thank you. And I want to thank Governor Romney because I think this was a terrific debate and I very much appreciate it. All those things are designed to make sure that the American people, their genius ‑‑ their grip, their determination is channeled. And they have an opportunity to succeed.  And everybody's getting a fair shot and everybody's getting a fair share.  Everybody's doing a fair share and everybody's playing by the same rules."

After hearing the audio clip, this is what Ann had to say: "As I think Romney pointed out to him that it was relatives and friends and donors to the Obama campaign that were getting all these massive grants for green companies that then went under, another fantastic line ‑‑ sorry, we'll get back to what you think the point was.  Another fantastic line was when Romney said about Solyndra and all these green companies that have lost, he said, you know, one of my friends said, "You don't just pick winners and losers.  You pick all losers"."

Glenn believes that after the president's performance last night, we're about to see a full assault on the senses of the American people. The media and the administration's candidate is in trouble, and they're going to have to unleash.

"What do you think is coming?" he asked Ann.

"I have been anticipating, and the reason I wrote the book [Mugged], that there would be a lot of racial Mao Maoing again trying to guilt Americans into reelecting the first half‑black president and I don't know, maybe they'll give up on that now," she responded. "I must say, and I hate to even mention it because it sounds like, you know, conservative paranoia, but it is simply a fact that no book of mine has been so ignored, completely ignored.  I mean not even attacking me when I'm not there, as this book."

"The mainstream media does not want anyone to know this book exists."

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

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?
