Join 1791 During November and Give Our Vets a Hand Up

Next Friday on Veterans Day, I am doing a special on veterans and the struggles they face. They are overwhelming. At least 21 vets kill themselves every day. We are failing those who have never failed us.

Recently, I challenged not just myself, but everyone I work with to look at the way we do our jobs and try to do good instead of just focusing on doing well. I am so proud of the people I work with, many of whom are veterans, and their genuine devotion in making a difference.

The team at 1791, our clothing company, spent some time listening to one of the vets that works with us. Her name is Jessica, and she came up with a really great idea about doing a better job of doing good while doing business.

#1791HandUp4Vets

This month while Mercury One moves our 4000th Christian out of danger in Syria and Iraq, 1791, is doing something here at home for our vets to keep them warm this winter and get them back into the workforce.

This Veterans Day, we want to do more than just remember our heroes. We are going to make sure they have the skills and clothing needed to interview and secure a good job. For those who are still on the streets, while we work to find them shelter and a home, we also want to help keep them warm. It's a small gesture, but one that will have a significant impact.

We invite you to join us.

During the month of November, you can take an active role in giving our vets a hand up. At 1791.com/veterans, you'll find information about our One to Wear, One to Share campaign, our Add a Jacket program and our Hire a Vet project. You can also see personal stories from veterans who have experienced tough times and come through it as survivors.

Let's Come Together

We can all say we support our vets, that we love and appreciate them, and for the most part all of us do --- left and right. But during this next election week you will also find Veterans Day on the calendar. We believe this is an opportunity to show our vets through deeds --- not just words --- that we do care about them. Our country has never been more divided. Let's come together on something we can all get behind: Helping our humble and most deserving --- our vets.

I have personally partnered with companies like Wells Fargo to help build and give away houses to vets, my family of companies are working through our elected officials to improve the Veterans Administration, and our people and Mercury One have volunteered time as well as raised awareness and funding for new medical facilities and treatments that are pioneering ways to treat our vets who, all too often, fall through the cracks.

I am proud that this November 1791 will add more kindling to the fire that is burning in all of our hearts to serve these men and women. 1791 is making an effort to do business in a different way, putting our priorities in order and simply trying harder to be better men, women and people. Come with us on this journey to change our little corner of the world by changing ourselves first.

Watch the video above and then join us in any way that fits you. Even if you decide to do something entirely different without us, our hope is that what we are trying to do, sparks something great in you. Together we can make a difference.

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.
