Set up? Tania sends Glenn out to inspect deadly poisonous tree

Last week we reported how Glenn’s wife Tania ‘accidentally’ flushed her wedding ring down the toilet just hours before their anniversary weekend. The story took an even stranger twist during the weekend getaway ‘celebration’ when Glenn was sent out to closely inspect a giant hive surrounded by deadly poisonous tree. Glenn told the amazing story of how he survived on radio today.

Read the transcript of the conversation below:

GLENN: All right. So up on the website at GlennBeck.com, there's a couple of pictures and then we'll just get off this, pictures of my anniversary trip, and you decide. Now Pat and Stu said that, you know, what happened was

PAT: Symbolic.

GLENN: Yeah, was symbolic.

PAT: A serious message.

GLENN: Now, here's what happened.

STU: I wouldn't say we said it. I would say that your wife made a statement about it.

PAT: Right. And we just related the statement she was making.

GLENN: So we go to this we go to this remote Gilligan's Island sort of place where you can just show up dead and no one will no one will miss you and you'll be like, "What happened?" "I don't know."

So I go and we're driving down we're driving down the road and my wife says and we're in this jungle. I mean, it's like a jungle. And she's like, whoa. Look at that. Look at those what are those hive things? We stop the car and it's like, you've got to go take a picture of that. And I'm like, all right. I don't know if that's a good idea.

So I get out of the car. Now there's a picture of the hive and they were everywhere in this jungle. And there's like no one around. This is like really, it's spooky. And so I go, I go up to it, and this is as close as I I won't go into the jungle. Surprise, I know. But I won't go into the jungle to take a picture of this because it's so damn spooky. And if you look at it and you zoom in on this picture, you can see this big black spot in the jungle and it's this hive that's got to be at least five feet.

STU: Hive of what?

GLENN: I have no idea. It's solid black. It's a nasty hive. I don't know if it's butterflies or spiders or people. I don't know what's in there.

STU: (Laughing.)

GLENN: But I don't want to find out, and it's every it's like out of a movie. Spooky.

See the black hives?

So my wife is like, go take a picture. Go you've got to get closer. Get a picture. And I'm like, no, I'm not going to get closer, honey. This is good enough for me. If you can't see, you can't see it in the picture. So you're going to have to zoom in because I'm not going in.

So then I go, I turn around and right where we've parked the car, there's a sign. Now, she's telling me go take a picture, in under these trees. But right next to it you'll see there's right next to her window, there's this giant and you can barely even notice it.

PAT: That's huge but it's not it's not in English and that's why she couldn't read it, right?

GLENN: It's just in English. It just says in read and white, warning.

PAT: Okay. And then it says the name of the three and it tells you it's poison, right?

GLENN: I've never heard of this tree, the Manchineel tree. And that's what the sign says: The leaves bark and fruits of these trees may contain a caustic sap which may be injurious if touched. Columbus described the small green fruits as death apples. The trees are common along the Caribbean shores. Avoid contact with any part of this tree.

Now, I've never heard of the Manchineel tree. Never heard of it. So we I'm like, wow. She's like, you should go up and touch it.

PAT: Are you hungry? Have an apple.

GLENN: Are you hungry? Those apples look delicious, don't they? And I'm like, eve, is that you? Here's what I go and look it up. Now, this is where we park our car. The sign is right outside my wife's window. She has just flushed our wedding ring help me. I think she's trying to kill me. Here's what it says: Danger: Manchineel trees. Don't let I love this: Don't let them spoil your vacation in Barbados. Now, this is from the country of Barbados where, which we were. This is where just what we happened to look at when I Googled Manchineel tree. The Manchineel trees grace Barbados' beaches providing shade from the blazing sun for locals and tourists alike as they enjoy themselves on the beach. And I'm like, there's a warning on this tree. This sounds nice. But the locals know something that most people don't. Remember, this is from the Barbados, like, tourist department. Those magnificent shade trees with their little apples are probably the most dangerous thing they'll encounter on their vacation in Barbados. The trees go up to 45 feet in height. They have dark gray bark with shiny green leaves and produce a small white green flowers. The apples are green when young and turn greenish yellow with a pleasant, sweet smelling fragrance when they ripen. Sounds good.

STU: Sounds great so far.

GLENN: Sounds fantastic. The leaves, the bark, the sap and the apple like fruit in the Manchineel, however, are all poison.

STU: Wait. The fruit, the bark?

GLENN: Contact with any of these will cause severe blistering or burning of the skin.

PAT: Yeah, but that's only from every part of the tree. So...

GLENN: You won't you will not believe the rest of this warning. We have to take a break. We'll come back with the rest of this warning. I've never heard of this tree. We continue to look it up. It's endangered. In Florida they are actually protecting this tree. Wait until you hear the rest of this warning on this tree. I've never heard of anything like it ever before. My wife is trying to kill me.

 

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.
