Democrats Want to Filibuster Despite Leftist Media Not Being Able to Find Fault With Gorsuch

Democrats have some new-found courage in the aftermath of the failed Republican health care bill and are flexing what little muscle they have to try to stop Gorsuch from being confirmed to the Supreme Court. Tuesday on radio, Glenn played clips of the overwhelming praise from the left which takes away just about every argument Democrats might have to filibuster.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Hello, America. Welcome to the Glenn Beck Program. Let's go to Gorsuch. What's the latest update, Pat?

PAT: Well, you know, because I think the Democrats feel like they just had a victory by voting down the health care bill, I think a lot of them believe now they can stop Gorsuch's nomination.

GLENN: That's crazy.

PAT: But when you listen to what's been said about Neil Gorsuch in the media, why would you try to stop this guy?

VOICE: Returning to Gorsuch, I think that this has been a slam-dunk in terms of his initial Q's and A's.

VOICE: Gorsuch is doing well. In part, because he's so well prepared.

VOICE: Just a matchable HEP performance by him.

VOICE: Tough to lay a glove on this guy.

VOICE: Thus far, he is proving very tough for Democrats to rattle.

VOICE: He has just a natural command and, frankly, kind of stage presence.

VOICE: Judge Gorsuch is completely qualified, and everybody knows it.

VOICE: But the Democrats have not even bruised, blemished anything to this judge so far.

VOICE: But the effort has been kind of scattershot, low intensity, and as we saw today, Gorsuch has a genial and disarming personality. Hard to portray him as a judicial villain.

VOICE: I would say that this was an impressively disciplined performance.

VOICE: He performed himself admirably, calmly, at almost all times, and with detail.

VOICE: Gorsuch is not just very, very smart, but smooth and affable.

VOICE: But in terms of character, in terms of professionalism, integrity, there wasn't -- I would argue -- anything or hardly anything there to criticize Gorsuch on.

VOICE: Right.

(chuckling)

VOICE: He does come across as very knowledgeable, also very likable.

VOICE: He knows so much more about everything he's being asked than the senators.

PAT: What a bastard! This guy has got to be stopped.

(laughter)

GLENN: You know, the thing that stuck out there was, you know, it's almost impossible to make this guy look bad.

Well, yeah. But, remember, we're talking about the left. The man who was supposed to be the kindest to ever live, Noah, they made him look like a criminal and an insane killer. I mean, you don't think they can do that with Gorsuch? How do you make Noah look bad? They just did.

PAT: They did.

GLENN: They did. So I don't put it past that they can make Gorsuch look bad. Back, with the Heritage Foundation, in a minute.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.
