Trump's New Conservative-free, Free Child-care Policy

Finally, a true conservative platform, something Republicans can hang their hats on: A government program to guarantee paid leave! And you thought this day would never come.

"If Barack Obama would have proposed this, we all, of course, would have been against that. But today, for some unknown reason, I am so in love with this. I think it might actually save us money. It might actually be the thing that we need to turn this country around. It's about time we have paid medical leave! It's about time!" Glenn said, kicking off his radio program Wednesday morning.

Glenn hasn't been this excited since the 1990s.

Here's a bit of what Ivanka said yesterday about this great, conservative government program:

My father has created a plan that is designed to bring relief and to provide working parents with options so that they can make the decisions that are in the best interests of their families: safe affordable, high-quality child care should not be the luxury of a fortunate few.

"Wow, is that the language of the left," Co-host Pat Gray said, crashing everyone's happy place.

"Language of the left! What are you talking about?" Co-host Stu Burguiere interjected.

"Language of the left! We have been saying this for a long time. We need safe and affordable child care. We not only need paid medical leave, we need the child care. And it needs to be safe, and it needs to be affordable," Glenn said.

Stu added that even though the free market already provides safe and affordable child care, it doesn't go far enough.

"The government should be involved in controlling those costs because this is too important of an issue," Stu added.

Welcome to the new conservatism!

"That's not conservative," Pat said, holding his ground stubbornly.

"Yeah, no, it is. No, it is. No, I've heard . . . traditional families. Kids. Families," Glenn argued.

"You don't care about kids? All of a sudden this guy doesn't care about kids," Stu said.

While traditional conservative principles would hold that parents have responsibility for their children and child care, the new conservatism says it's the government's responsibility.

"Not everyone is some rich person like you, Pat. It's unbelievable. The government needs to step in when the market fails," Stu said.

"Hang on. Let me see if I can speak his language. Pat . . . this is going to save us money," Glenn said.

"In what way?" Pat asked.

Because, duh, maternity leave. All these women that would be going on disability will go instead on free government paid leave so they're saving money and will have extra cash to put into the economy. Plus, stay-at-home moms are also eligible for the free government program, so that's even more money for the economy.

"One of the fastest ways to grow the economy are programs like this, where we give money to people where they can spend it into the economy," Stu said.

"Hello!" Glenn echoed.

The bottom line is we're going to save money, and Trump's new free government program for child care is very conservative. It is not socialism. It is pure capitalism. And Trump is not a socialist. He is a nationalist. He loves America. Yeah, he's a national capitalist. Is there something wrong with that?

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.
