Glenn: God is the answer

Between the government shutdown, the debt ceiling debate, the fight to defund Obamacare, and the current state of Washington, it is difficult to find much hope. On radio this morning, Glenn explained that it is time for the left and right to come together on the things that can unite us against the progressive element on both sides of the aisle, and we must look to God for the guidance and answers.

“We told you their intent. Fundamentally transform the United States of America. Redistribute the wealth. I told you that they see us as the wealthiest 1% of the world. So even the poorest among us are going to get hammered,” Glenn said. “The ship has already sailed, and they're counting on the power and the philosophies and the traps of men. There is only one way to beat it and that is to be absolutely clean; to do the right thing; to do the hard thing; to stick together; to be with like‑minded people that you think at least will stand when it comes time to stand; to be people of peace.”

You know, you can take and look at the correlation of when the Western world started to slide off the cliff. The Western world started to slide off the cliff when we started to lose our faith. Look what happened in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Look at that 150 or 200‑year period. For the first time in and around 1800, the world saw the individual for the very first time. We ended slavery, and the West declared slavery was wrong. Some lasted longer than others. We lasted longer here. Some just gave it up, some had wars over it, but we did it because we saw the power of the individual. That was a new idea. We went from candles and fire to heat and electricity. We went from drilling holes in people's heads to penicillin. We changed the world.

Why? What happened? I contend it is God. People found a real understanding of all men are created equal. You don't have to believe in God, but that is an important thing. All men are created equal.

Now, the reason why the French Revolution lost is because they went on to say all men are equal. No, they're not. They don't have equal outcome. They're created equal, so everybody gets their fair shot. Once you say all men are equal, well, then you've got a problem because once you start to look at wealth and everything else and equal outcome, then somebody has to change the rules to make it work right for somebody else. No. No, what we had was everybody is an individual and everybody has to stand on their own two feet. But then you couple that with faith, which taught charity. It is the Judeo‑Christian value of charity. And the Judeo‑Christian value of the power of the individual, that God loves each of us and created each of us as individuals. And he loves each of us. Good or bad, black or white, we're all his children. All of us. And it's for him to settle those scores. It's for us to try to do the right thing.

When you couple those two things in, all of a sudden invention kicks in. All of a sudden goodness carries the day. We've lost that. And anybody who tells you differently, I mean, look, I'm not on a mission. I'm not a preacher. I'm the worst guy to come and talk to you about these things. And these are the things that I've never wanted to do. I get up every day and I have to change this. But I get up every day and I don't want to do it. I don't want to do it. Somebody wrote to me and said, man, your ambition and the things that you're doing, I just don't want to do them. Well, neither do I.

So what drives me? I feel compelled to because I've been given much. I've been given freedom. I've been given an opportunity to wipe the mistakes of my past away. I've been given the opportunity to be who I want to be. And it's irresponsible. No, it's grotesque for me not to put every dime of everything I have, every breath that I have into that.

As I was sitting last night again at the hospital with my son, last week I was in the hospital with my daughter and last night I had to take Raphe to the hospital. He fell and he cut his head open. And I was sitting there and quite honestly, I was trying to make him think of anything, anything but getting stitches in the back of his head. And so quite honestly, not to be crude, after we prayed, I started telling him fart jokes because he's 9. And fart jokes work at 9. And so we were readying the torpedoes and launching them away because that's what kept him smiling and laughing. I got home and I thought, strangely, that's one of the best memories I have right now. I'd rather do that than anything else, just be with my family and just laugh and be there.

We're all in this together. The message is simple: Decency, honor, integrity, goodness, kindness, charity. God is the answer. Anything else will take you off course. And we will slip into the history books as a once‑great nation and a once‑great people. I'm not going to be a part of that. We can win because, if we are on God's side, who could possibly defeat him?

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.
