How do you vet refugees? Glenn shares detailed plans for The Nazarene Fund

The Obama administration says it's going to take 12 to 18 months to vet Syrian refugees --- after they enter the country. Really? There's not a way to vet refugees before to ensure they're not terrorists bent on killing us? Yes, of course there is, and it's a simple solution: Take the government out of the equation.

Thanks to the generosity of Glenn's listeners, the Nazarene Fund has raised more than $12 million dollars --- $2 million above goal --- to save Christians in the Middle East. Just recently, $1.5 million of those funds was wired to Europe to begin the process.

Glenn shared on radio today how his team will work with long-standing pastors and priests in Iraq and Syria to thoroughly vet people and relocate them to safe-haven countries.

"The problem with the refugees is we just don't know who is coming in," Glenn said. "We'll have absolutely no idea who is coming in, until they get here."

He went on to describe how the president has said we're going to take 85,000 refugees in 2016 --- and State Department says it takes 12 to 18 months to vet people entering under these circumstances.

That being said, there actually is a way to effectively vet asylum-seeking Christians, Glenn went on to explain.

"It's really quite simple," Glenn said. "We go to the church in the area in Iraq or in Syria, and we go find the parish priest or the pastor, and we say, 'Who is in the most trouble?'"

Working with local parishioners, Glenn described how his team would be able to distinguish between families who were actually chased out of their home or had their business burned down because they were Christian and the pretenders.

"We're relying on the pastors or the priests to tell us. We're not taking anybody who, well, they, you know, showed up," Glenn said.

The key is relying on long-standing, trusted local resources.

Glenn went on to break down how the funds --- donated by 120,000 listeners, many of them churches doing bake sales --- will be used.

"Each family takes about $20,000," he said. "That's for the vetting. That's for the airfare. That is for getting their life in order. That's to set them up. That's to give them nine months of foreign language class."

He continued.

"So we set them up, we set them up in a community, a church so they have a fallback. They have some money for their apartment. We pay for their apartment for a little while. We try to set them up with a job," Glenn said. "I can guarantee you this is not what the federal government is doing. I can guarantee you, this is not what the UN is doing."

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?
