Chaos Comes From Having No Absolutes (We've Been Teaching Kids There Are None for Decades)

Editor's Note: The following is based on Glenn's monologue from May 17, 2017.

Talk about fast and furious. News is breaking so fast and so furiously on President Trump that many people aren't getting the facts. They don't even know what's happening. We're going to give you those facts to help you understand the world we're living in right now, but more importantly, I want to start with trying to understand you. Nobody in the media understands you. Do I? I want to make sure that we're on the same page so that I can better serve you and figure out the things you're trying to understand.

Historic Times

We are living truly in a pivot point of history. Yesterday, I looked at the team and said, "I can't believe we are living in these times and we have a first row seat at the events of our day. This is an amazing time to be alive." We're going to be remembered for this time in history --- what we did and what we said.

One of the things people will talk about is "climate chaos." We're going on vacation next week, up to the mountains and just getting away from it all. My wife came into the closet and showed me the weather forecast. It's snowing in the mountains. (She's not happy. She's a sun worshiper.) Just this morning in Dallas, it was raining. Climate chaos! It's raining in Dallas, snowing in the mountains, hot in Florida. Yeah, it's always like that. That's not chaos. You want to know what chaos is? It's what we're living right now.

We are truly living in a world of chaos. Watch the news and try to make sense of it. Who do you trust? What institutions do you trust? What do you know is true, really true?

Remember I said to you years ago --- and it seemed crazy to say it --- everything you believe in will violated. Everything you think is solid will be liquid, and everything liquid will be solid. The world will be upside down and inside out, and you won't recognize anything.

Climate chaos? No. The chaos is not caused by the climate.

The Real Chaos

You're causing the earth to die because of your SUV --- and yet --- we have to have those SUVs. We have to have General Motors. We have to keep these companies going. Let's bail them out to make sure they can make more trucks and SUVs while, at the same time, we're told by the same people those trucks and SUVs are evil, oil is evil. (Oil --- petroleum jelly --- changed the world. You don't have oil, you don't have petroleum. You don't have petroleum, you don't have a sewing machine or a cotton gin that works for long.) Chaos.

Chaos comes from paying a tax on something that has now been deemed evil. We all went to school and learned that what we breathe out is what trees breathe in. Now our breathing is supposed to be killing the planet, killing the trees. How is that possible? Chaos.

How many genders are there? If you're like most people, you're probably thinking two, right? Wrong. Despite the solid, scientific evidence, we're supposed to believe there are more than 90 now. Chaos.

Can a white woman identify as a black woman and work for the NAACP? No, of course no!. Well, wait, yes. That actually happened, and the left held her up. Chaos.

If you're white, you can't even talk about slavery because you can't relate to slavery. Even if you were born and raised in the same town as someone who is black --- went to the same school, graduated in the same class as you --- they can understand it, but you can't. Chaos.

Two plus two equals five. It's math, no it doesn't. Yes, it does . . . if you can show me how you got there. Chaos.

We have to print more money to make our dollar sound. What? We have to spend more money to get out of debt. What? $17 trillion isn't un-American, but a debt of $9 trillion certainly is. Chaos.

Which bathroom do I use? Which bathroom is she or he allowed to use? I'm sorry I said she or he. I don't know which one you're identifying as today --- a man or a woman? If you're identifying as a woman, but you're a man and I open the door for you, am I going to be called a sexist? If you're obviously a very manly looking man and you're wearing a dress, I'm going to notice you, but I'm going to be called a hater for even noticing that. At the same time, we're taught, if you see something, say something. Chaos.

Our eyes, ears and every statistic proves that those who kill or die while shouting "praise Allah" follow an evil form of Islam. But we're told they're simply practicing what God has told them to do, they're misunderstood. You're the one who has all the hate --- even though you're the one who will gladly live side-by-side, respectfully with anyone as long as they show the same respect in return. Chaos.

We can't use the same words anymore. Chaos. There are no rules to anything. Chaos. Nothing is consistent, ever. It just depends on who is in charge and who is in power. Chaos.

Agree or be silenced. Agree or be fired. Agree and promote or be shunned.

Nobody can function in that.

False Gods

Who are our heroes today? Every single hero has been mocked, ridiculed and explained away. Our faith is mocked. Our media, who are supposed to stand guard for us, against corruption, seem to stand guard against us --- against our beliefs, our traditions, our institutions. In fact, many of them came from the same places as us, but they no longer even like us or understand us.

Our money isn't safe in banks anymore. Wall Street is getting rich while your wage hasn't gone up, in some cases since September 11. Politicians are getting rich off things that would put us in jail. Charlie Rangel entered Congress poor after serving in the Army. He now has houses all over the world. He's wealthy. How did that happen in the service of his country? He's not alone; I don't mean to stick it to him. They're all like that, or at least a lot of them. They have better health care while we can't keep our doctors.

So what do we do?

We retreat to the things that we know we can trust like our churches. Yet when we get into our churches, we're surrounded by judgment and not people who actually care, people who are telling us they're better than us. Don't do these things. But they do them.

Our doctors prescribe drugs for our children to control the things that make them children. They give us painkillers, and we think it's okay because the doctor prescribed it. Try as we might, we can't get off those painkillers. In the end, the withdrawal is worse than symptoms. Our doctors say marijuana oil is a natural solution, but the government won't let us have a natural solution that doesn't get you high. They'd rather we be on opioids, which are killing us.

The Forecast

I got up this morning, started with the weather forecast and thought, how do I explain the world to my audience? How do I tell you what's going on when I'm not even sure I know who you are?

I don't know how you feel, but I feel like we're living in a world of chaos --- and it's important to point that out because when the rules don't apply equally, it causes tension.

Our kids are in a sea of culture that I don't understand, without any morals or boundaries. Suicide with millennials is up 30 percent. There are somewhere between 20 and 40 service men who come home and kill themselves every single day. The VA is failing them, putting them on more drugs. And those people in Washington who are in power are creating the same VA nightmare for us.

The former Soviet Union is now led by a strongman, former KGB colonel. He came in as a poor KGB colonel, and is now one of the richest men in the world. To a lot of people, he looks like a good guy.

Up is down. Down is up. Good is being made evil. Evil is good. And it seems as though nobody gets it.

You don't feel heard. You don't feel like anybody is really listening to you. I'll bet you many feel like nobody even sees you anymore, and if they do, they don't really care. They're just trying to make money off of you or trying to increase their power. Yeah, yeah, I've tried. Let's take our country back. I was called names. I wore myself out, and it didn't make any difference.

Donald Trump got it. He knew that the real trouble was coming from this cultural chaos, even if he couldn't say it. The press, the universities, the schools that have indoctrinated our children, saying fingers are guns. He knew we needed the Supreme Court, or we wouldn't stand a chance. He gave us that. You don't agree with everything he says, but at least he's swimming the other way. Really? Now he's surrounded by people who have a career in DC. The media has always hated him --- and he's alone. We knew this would happen. Never let a guy like that be president. They'd never let that happen.

Everything I thought I could trust has betrayed me, and now I'm alone --- but I'm going down swinging.

That's how this chaos makes me feel. How about you? Am I even close?

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

'The Handmaid's Tale' got it right, just with the wrong religion

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images

Just in case The Handmaid's Tale's heavy-handed message wasn't already heavy-handed enough, a recent episode made it clear there's always room for further hysteria. Particularly, in relation to depictions of a “patriarchal society" run by Christian doctrine and determined by men — oh those dastardly men.

RELATED: Christian privilege is the new white privilege

The show appropriates Margaret Atwood of the same name, depicting a totalitarian society led by Christian doctrine in which women's bodies are controlled, and they have no rights. The story sounds familiar, but not in the same way Atwood and the show's creators have so smugly assumed.

Just as tone-deaf as 4th wave feminism itself, and tone-deaf in all the exact same places. Most notably, the show's heavy-handed indignation toward Christianity. Toward the patriarchy. Toward conservatives and traditional values. And just like 4th wave feminism, the show completely overlooks the irony at play. Because there is a part of the world where women and children are being raped and mutilated. In fact, in this very real place, the women or girls are often imprisoned, even executed, for being raped, and they are mutilated in unspeakable ways.

Theirs is a cruel, bloody, colorless life.

There is a place, a very real place, where women are forced to cover their entire bodies with giant tarp-like blankets, which is all the more brutal given the endless heat of this place. There is a place where women literally have one-third of the rights of men, a place where women are legally, socially and culturally worth less than men.

They cannot drive cars. They cannot be outside alone. They cannot divorce, they cannot even choose who they marry and often, they are forcibly married at a young age.

They are raped. A lot. Theirs is a cruel, bloody, colorless life. This is the life of tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of women. And, I'll tell you, their religion isn't Christianity.

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

RELATED: Changes in technology can be cause for concern, but THIS is amazing

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.
