The Strange Alliance Between Steve Bannon and Alex Jones

Word on the street is that Steve Bannon is leaking valid scoops to ridiculous media personalities like Alex Jones to give them more credibility.

"Apparently he is feeding Alex Jones --- and a guy who is even crazier than Alex Jones --- legitimate scoops to be able to prop up their conspiracy theories," Glenn said on radio Wednesday.

That slash-and-burn approach confuses the waters.

"If you can't believe anything, then you'll believe everything," Glenn said.

Listen to this segment beginning at mark 29:20 from The Glenn Beck Program:

STU: But this is what people do. I mean, Jeffy is a good example of that. It's how people think. They will take 100 statements in a row they know are false. Look for one that has the slightest bit of truth and investigate it. It's so bizarre.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, that takes us right back to the White House. This is what Bannon is doing. Remember, Bannon is a burn it down. What's he want to burn down? The system. The best way to burn down the system is ruin your trust in everything.

If you can't believe anything, then you'll believe everything. It's just, who is the strongest up at the top of the hill? And he plans on being that guy.

So what is he doing?

STU: He is -- well, again, the reports are that he is leaking and other White House officials are leaking valid scoops to people who are generally would be considered a conspiracy theorist or crazy people. Like Alex Jones.

GLENN: Yeah, we're talking about the Alex Jones and worse.

STU: And worse. And the reason they're doing this is because they want people to believe there are more crazy things. So when -- you leak something to Alex Jones and he comes out with it and he turns out to be right, just like when the president during the campaign used the argument with National Enquirer, well, you know, Ted Cruz -- did his dad kill JFK? Or was he involved in some way? But they had the John Edwards thing right.

PAT: They got that right.

STU: So they used -- they had X, Y, and Z right. So you can give a couple examples, and that one is, I mean, really hard. You're talking about 30 years of the National Enquirer being wrong, and you can pull out three or four stories where they were right. Here, you know, these are people that most people are not at all -- are not at all familiar with.

GLENN: Alex Jones is wrong more times than the National Enquirer in one day.

PAT: Oh, I'll not have you disparage this man.

GLENN: He's wrong more times than the National Enquirer has been in 30 years.

STU: Well, you're valuing frequency over timeline, and I understand that. But either way --

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Listen to all the things this guy had right. Listen to them.

ALEX: And to feel what the children are feeling.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: He's feeling it.

ALEX: God Almighty.

STU: He's feeling the children.

GLENN: Don't do it, Pat. Here he goes. (crying).

ALEX: Folks -- folks, we got to get good people to stand up against these people. (crying).

(chuckling)

PAT: I probably shouldn't have done the show today.

ALEX: I probably shouldn't even have done this radio show today.

PAT: Or any day.

ALEX: Because I have this disgusted cover.

STU: Globalists.

ALEX: I just hate the globalists, but it's more than that.

STU: I love that.

(laughter)

ALEX: I just get flippant and angry, but it's because deep down, I can see what they're doing. And we have a responsibility.

PAT: Tell us why. Tell us why, Alex.

GLENN: Where are the men?

ALEX: To stop these globalists.

Where are the men in this country? Where are the men in this world? What the hell have we become? We just offer our children up to the system with the fluoride in the water and the GMO hurting them. And we let fat perverts grab them at the airport to train them for the pedophile government.

PAT: Right.

ALEX: And we've just got such a sick society.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: Earlier, I was going to say, no, his lawyer is lying. And he's not a performance artist. But that is such performance. I mean, there's no way that is real.

PAT: No, I think it is.

JEFFY: Oh, I don't know. We've watched enough clips --

PAT: I think it's real. I think it's real.

JEFFY: We've watched enough clips. If you start rolling into more and more Alex Jones clips, you get to the point where it's real.

PAT: Well, it's all like this. It's all some version of this.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: It's not all as hysterical, where he's crying and slobbering. But it's all, you know, screaming. And the intensity is always there.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: He's just -- that's him.

GLENN: What I know is real with him is when he takes his shirt off, he's -- something snaps in him.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Really dark snaps in him. And he takes his shirt off. And it's like a roid rage.

STU: Well, it's just because I've had some jalapeÒos. I've been eating some jalapenos.

PAT: I ate a steak last night. I ate a steak. A T-bone. Got a lot of testosterone. Lot of protein.

GLENN: I eat steak almost every day. You know, I have hamburger. I have meat of some sort from a cow.

PAT: Right. Me too. Me too.

GLENN: Almost every day. Never have that problem.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: My testosterone is very low. Don't have that problem.

(chuckling)

STU: Plenty of other problems. But not that.

GLENN: Not that.

JEFFY: Think of this though. That right there got custody of the kids, right?

PAT: Yeah, that's crazy. I mean, how did that happen?

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: How did that happen?

GLENN: So what does that mean about his wife? Do we know anything about his wife?

JEFFY: I don't know. I know.

GLENN: How does his wife lose custody?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: Oh. I would give -- I mean, if I could just take a vacation and just go down -- wouldn't that be the most entertaining vacation.

JEFFY: It would be so much fun.

PAT: Yeah, to be at that trial.

GLENN: Oh, to be at that trial and just sit there and watch that. That is -- I mean, I would bring popcorn. That's a movie.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: If you want to -- if you want to go down and you want to be the, you know, reporter for us and, you know, call in tomorrow, call us right now.

JEFFY: That would be great.

STU: That would be interesting to see.

PAT: That would be fun.

STU: I mean, there's a couple of reporters in there. I guess, day one, there was almost no one in the courtroom. And now --

GLENN: It's starting to get packed.

PAT: It's packed?

STU: They're bringing in a crowd now.

GLENN: No, it's a show. Come on, that's a show. That's a great thing.

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.
