Glenn's test results 'better than expected' following 'miraculous' visit to Mayo Clinic

I could not let another day go by without thanking you for prayers and a loving Father in Heaven for answering them.

As you know, I took off a month over the summer. Thank God, I feel good and my voice is strong. With an abundance of caution though, I decided to go to some of the best in the field to just look at all of me.

For too long I have had symptoms, they come and go, but they are never gone. I thought last year things were gone for good but no such luck.

Thankfully, with your prayers, all turned out as good as hoped and better than expected.

I spent a long few days at the Mayo Clinic.

This place is a miracle and it was incredible to watch them work.

Brilliant people and so very kind - from the doctors, nurses, administrative to the security staff. All beyond professional staking out the territory of truly kind caregivers and scientists.

Each doctor on the team, I believe there were 8 doctors involved, knew my case, did their homework and came prepared to help and heal.

I have never seen anything like it.

I asked the one of the nurses, "I am being treated like a king, but what is it like for the average person?" I am not sure she understood the question but her reply was simple: "just like you."

I was so happy to hear that.

I was told, but did not verify, that they can process 5,000 patients a day.

At the end of my stay, I speculated to the head of the medical team assigned to me that if I had taken this on my own and just gone from doctor to doctor like usual, it would have taken me about a year to complete this work and all of these tests. He felt it may have taken a bit longer. Wow. What a blessing.

The insurance company is raising the rates again on my company's "Cadillac insurance" and the government thinks it too good so they are fining (taxing) the company (me) for providing this health care for my employees, but thank God I do.

Yes, I can afford this on my own but my employees couldn't and I believe they deserve the same care, treatment and opportunity as my family does. It is a core principle for me. None of us are worth less in God's eyes. I believe that insurance is the last thing we cut. I was the one who needed it this time.

I would hope that companies understand the value of providing this kind of health care and employees understand the strain it puts on the employer but it is worth it when you need it. My only hope is that we can get the government out of this before they destroy truly remarkable medicine and the general public's access to it.

I wanted to thank all of the doctors and nurses that helped us through this last week.

I grew up hearing about the Mayo Clinic. They have quite a reputation to live up to, they need to know that they surpassed everything we even thought a hospital and great health care could be.

If you or a loved one need answers this IS the place to go.

They found new, well-founded and dynamic answers for me.

Not a surprise that presidents, prime ministers and kings from around the world come to them for help.

The doctors were gifted, kind, steady and empathetic. They were beyond thorough. We all got on the plane late Friday night with a truly grateful heart.

As an aside, they say my vocal chords look better than they did a few months ago after my break. What is more important, they believe they now know what is causing that and everything else that is going on. Finally a universal answer that is provable on scans. The doctor that found it, "had a hunch". An answered prayer.

We have started new treatment and are praying for miraculous and lasting results over the next few months.

I need to thank you and all that prayed last week without even knowing why.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you. We could feel them and they were answered. And thank you to Mary and all of the wonderful people at the Mayo Clinic for making an exhausting week one to be written about in our family journals as a very positive experience.

From Dallas, Goodnight America.

I could not let another day go by without thanking you for prayers and a loving Father in heaven for answering them.As...

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.
