Mickey Mouse Operation: Why Didn't the FBI Heed Disney's Warning?

Perhaps the biggest tragedy of the Orlando terrorist attack is that it could have been stopped. As usual, the warning signs were ignored.

"Did you hear that the Mouse Police had warned the FBI about the shooter? You know, he had been casing several places, including [Pulse], but he also was casing Disney. Now, Disney, can you imagine the security protocols that Disney has to make sure none of this has happened since 2001," Glenn asked. "I mean, you go in and you start shooting people at Disney World or Disneyland, and it's a totally different world. And they know it. So Disney police are good."

Yet even an April warning from Disney --- which followed previous warnings from the shooter's co-workers --- failed to alarm FBI officials enough to detain Mateen and stop the attack at Pulse.

"We have a problem with the FBI, and I don't think it's the local guys, I really don't. I think there has been a management change," Glenn said.

The FBI's report on the complaints against Mateen concluded that the people reporting on him were bigots and racists.

"So they did their investigation on him and came out and said, 'You know what, I'm sorry you have to deal with all these racists at work.' I personally think that this administration comes into it with that bias."

Has the Obama administration given a top-down order and tied the hands of FBI agents on the ground?

"You can't look at certain things, you can't say certain things, you can't be trained about certain things on Islam, I think there is such a bias against the people, in favor of a possible extremist," Glenn speculated.

The Obama administration has shown again and again they protect the rights of extremists and ideologists over regular American citizens.

"They're coming in with a bias against people who are calling and saying, "Hey, I think there's something suspicious," Glenn said.

"The problem with this whole conversation is we're not talking about what really matters: A, we've moved past the people who are still having surgery, like Tony, who is still in the, 'I got to fight. I got to live. I love my family, and God's got a plan for me' mode. We just blew by all of that, and we went to a narrative of, 'Is this anti-gay?'"

The shooter reportedly said 'Allahu Akbar' while carrying out the attack. The shooter reportedly called 911 during the attack and said, 'This is dedicated to ISIS.' The shooter reportedly posted to Facebook the day of the attack, pledging allegiance to the leader of ISIS and vowing more attacks.

"We're not really even having that conversation. We are actually talking about taking the rights away from law-abiding citizens. Donald Trump, 'our champion,' is saying that he's going to talk to the NRA and the NRA has got to compromise on the no-fly list," Glenn said.

The real conversation we should be having is about Islamic extremists --- and they're devotion to killing anyone that doesn't agree with them. Because it is about Islam.

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.
