Pat's Clock Boy Edition of 'Happy Days Are Here Again'

Freedom of speech is alive and well in the state of Texas. Yesterday, a judge threw out a frivolous lawsuit filed by clock boy against Glenn and TheBlaze. If you'll remember, Ahmed Mohamed took a clock project to school which closely resembled a bomb. Glenn and crew had originally supported Ahmed --- until they saw the clock themselves.

"We reported it, and we reported it accurately on this program. And yesterday, the judge threw that case out," Glenn said.

In celebration, co-host Pat Gray gave a screeching, clock boy rendition of Happy Days Are Here Again.

Enjoy this complimentary clip from The Glenn Beck Program:

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Hello, America. And welcome to the Glenn Beck Program. We are waiting now for a news conference with president-elect Trump on this -- the latest on this back and forth with Russia. We have spent two hours talking about it today, trying to look at it logically. We can't make heads or tails of this. It doesn't ever lead anyplace good. And we don't buy into all the stuff that it says about Donald Trump. We'll see what he has to say and see if he can bring any reason to any of this. As he comes out, we will do that. Also, I understand we have some good news. We'll get to there, right now.

(music)

PAT: Yeah, we're waiting for the Donald Trump press conference here which is coming up in a second. But first, we got some really good news before we get to that.

GLENN: May I read -- this is from the court yesterday.

On this day, court considered the anti-SLAPP motion to dismiss, motion to dismiss by defendants, TheBlaze Inc and Glenn Beck collectively, TheBlaze parties, pursuant to Chapter 27 -- blah, blah. After considering the motion to dismiss any responses and replies thereto, any supporting or official affidavits -- blah, blah, blah -- the motion to dismiss is granted.

Therefore, ordered, the motion to dismiss filed by TheBlaze parties is in all things granted in its entirety.

PAT: This is in the clock kid. Ahmed, the clock kid. Clockmed, we called him a few times. Allegedly, Clockmed. We allegedly --

GLENN: So this was -- so what an anti-SLAPP is in the United States -- or, I mean, in Texas, which really is the United States now, is a -- a remedy that people can take if your First Amendment rights are being questioned to stop really kind of frivolous lawsuits.

STU: Yeah, basically a frivolous lawsuit defense, allegedly.

PAT: If you remember right, it was the kid who went to school with the clock. And he said it was a clock. It looked like a bomb. And originally, we were pissed off at the school district.

GLENN: We were for him.

PAT: We were for the kid. We were defending the kid, and then we saw the picture of it. We were like --

STU: Of course, they thought it was a bomb.

PAT: -- of course, they thought it was a bomb. It looks just like one.

GLENN: Right. And we also then heard that he was told by a teacher, "Hey, don't bring this into other -- don't show this to anybody. It looks like a bomb." And so he didn't do the first degree lookalike weapon. He used common sense and said, "Hey, put that away. Don't do that anymore. Another teacher won't be so cool with that." And they weren't. And he kept doing it, almost as if he was trying to --

PAT: Almost as if.

GLENN: Yeah, we don't know if that's what it was.

PAT: It allegedly looked that way in our humble opinions.

GLENN: We reported it. And we reported it accurately on this program. And yesterday, the judge threw that case out.

PAT: Fortunately, showing that apparently freedom of speech is still alive. Right?

GLENN: However, I will say that the First Amendment is not real healthy.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And we have not talked about the other court case that we settled in Boston. And we will. So you know, I settled that case, but I settled it with the understanding and the legal ability to open up the entire record of the case. That case is not sealed.

And we did settle for a small sum of money because it was going to go all the way to the Supreme Court. It should have. But it would have probably cost me $5 million. Instead, I settled it with it unsealed because we're going to present this to you and show you exactly what happened in the Boston bombing case. There is something very wrong, and it has little to do with the guy who was suing me, and everything to do with the United States government, which was the point in the first place.

PAT: But in this particular case --

GLENN: It's over.

PAT: A little celebration is appropriate. Because...

(music)

PAT: Allegedly.

GLENN: Not at all. He didn't say that at all.

PAT: He just didn't put it right. But he did throw out the case!

(laughter)

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

PAT: So we actually won. Actually won.

STU: I have some documents that show that his mom was a especially proud, more than other relatives.

PAT: And his mom was allegedly, especially proud!

GLENN: You know what's amazing about that case is the amount of stuff that was sent from people like Zuckerberg and everybody else, when it turns out that that wasn't exactly what happened, that that's not -- and the judge is, you know -- because he sued I don't even know how many people. His family has come back and sued everybody.

STU: Yeah. (inaudible) Ben Ferguson.

PAT: Looking for a payout.

GLENN: We're the second case to be dismissed, and there's a line of people that are going to court.

PAT: You know who else has been dismissed? Do you know or can you say?

GLENN: No, I don't know. I don't remember. But there were two -- we were in court with two of the people.

PAT: I think the mayor of Irving is still involved, right? She's still wrapped up in this.

GLENN: But we still have court cases. And I think it's the same argument. I don't know. I'm not involved in anyone else's --

PAT: It's ridiculous.

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.
