Sen. Mike Lee Believes These 3 Words Will Protect Americans From Martial Law

Glenn joined Meet the Press Sunday morning and once again declared his commitment to #NeverTrump as well as his #NeverHillary --- but it was his comment about Ted Cruz that really turned some heads.

"By the way, my apologies yesterday," Glenn said on his radio program Monday. "I said, 'If Ted Cruz endorses Donald Trump tomorrow in his speech, it will be official that I will have no one I can trust in Washington.' I said that on Meet the Press. And I was deluged with email --- 'Has Mike Lee done something wrong?' No! Mike Lee --- I wasn't thinking of Mike yesterday."

Lee didn't seem the least bit worried and laughed it off.

"I'm easy to forget," Lee quipped.

As it goes with friends at times, the conversation bounced around and hit on a lot of topics so here are a few of the highlights.

Republican National Convention

With the convention taking center stage, the conversation shifted to Lee's role in the Trump Show. Lee had been described as the most influential #NeverTrump person on the Rules Committee for the convention in several stories in the past week, and Glenn asked how things went at their meeting over the weekend.

"I've heard it from both sides that the GOP did what they did to the Ron Paul people last time and just squashed and actually were holding up signs --- 'Trump people, GOP people, vote no on this.' Is that true?" Glenn asked.

Lee replied in the affirmative, saying it was unlike anything he'd ever seen.

"In fact, the sign said, 'Trump/RNC, vote no.' So it was surreal," Lee said. "It was bizarro-world in which the Trump campaign had teamed up with the RNC establishment powers that be to completely shut out calls for reform from grassroots conservatives. I was stunned."

Civil Unrest and Martial Law

With many people at a loss for what to do in this election, mixed with the civil unrest and international terrorism, some are now calling for "temporary" suspensions of certain laws or constitutional rights. Lee wrote a book called Our Lost Constitution, and as a history buff and champion of the constitution, Glenn picked his brain about martial law.

"To answer your question, this is always a possibility," Lee said. "It is always a possibility here or anywhere in the world because of human nature. Look, human beings are fallible. They make mistakes. They're not inherently evil, but they make mistakes. And that's why we need constitutions."

Three Words to Save Liberty

"Everyone I talk to says --- that understands really where we are, 'It's too late. It's too late,'" Glenn said.

Lee was quick to jump in and disagree.

"But it's not too late," he said.

Glenn held his ground, vehemently.

"Mike, we have people --- we have people on both sides of the aisle --- and a lot of Americans are going along with it," Glenn said. "When that happened in Orlando, they were talking about curtailing the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendment. We had people on both sides talking about doing that in Congress. How do you save it when people don't even know what their rights are and are so willing just to give them up?"

Lee said it will all come down to three words and people will realize what needs to be done.

"All they need is the ability to recognize deprivations of the Constitution when they arise, and just as importantly, to be able to trigger three words: THIS IS WHY," Lee said. "This is why we have the Fourth Amendment. This is why we have the Legislative Powers Clause. This is why we have the Origination Clause."

Lee left with some parting words of wisdom for Glenn and the listeners.

"We can still win this. But we've got to win the conversation. We have to have the conversation in the first place," Lee said. "That conversation hasn't been taking place because our schools don't teach civics anymore like they used to. They don't teach the stories behind our Constitution."

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.

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

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.
