Your food and gas prices are rising but everything is totally (not) fine

President Obama wants you to think that the rising costs of gas and food are no big deal. He wants you to think that everything is fine, and if you give him four more years he'll finally be able to deliver on the whole hope and change thing. But saying something doesn't make it come true, no matter how much hope President Obama says he has.

"I will tell you, though, that the tide has changed in the last two weeks and Romney has all of the momentum, and we're three weeks away. As I said last night and I said yesterday on the radio program, what's happening is the president's lies are not being believed anymore," Glenn explained.

"Why aren't they being believed? Because if you've stopped at a gas station, you know," he continued. "Are you doing well? Do you feel like things are on the right track?"

Glenn said that in the past debate Obama tried to imply that high gas prices were a sign of a recovering economy.

"The reason why Romney is winning is because the president looks completely out of touch. He thinks he's a Jedi. He really does. He's like, 'Your gas prices are good.' My gas prices aren't good. 'No, let me try it again. Look at my hand. Your gas prices are good.' The Jedi trick doesn't work. And when you're paying that for gasoline and then you go in ‑‑ that's 158% increase since he got into office."

"But that's not all. We're going to get into this later, but let me just run down this list. This is important for the American people to know. Eggs are up 73%. Coffee is up 90. Peanut butter up 40. Milk 25%. White bread 39%. Spaghetti, macaroni is up 44%. Orange juice 46. Apple juice 43. Wine up 60. Electricity up 42%. Beef steak up 41. Ground beef up 61%. Margarine up 143%. Everybody knows. You may not know why. People may not be able to explain QE infinity. People may not even know what that is. You may not even know what that is, but you know your ground beef is up 61%. You know that your coffee is up 90%. You know when you go to the gas station and you get gas it's up 158%. You may not know the cause of it, but you certainly don't connect with somebody who says, 'There's no problem here. No, we're just on the verge ‑‑ what we're going to do is more of what we've just done.' You know that doesn't work. Not a good idea. Right? And that's what's happening."

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.
