Stu on the Street


Stu is seen here reporting from a local gas station in your area...

GLENN: Let me go to Stu who's our expert. He's been out at the gas stations. Stu, where you're at, how much is gas -- how much is gas right now at the gas station where you're at, Stu?

STU: Glenn, a gallon of gas is under $4 a gallon. Just as I'm walking out now past the pumps. No, it's under $4 a gallon. I mean, they're giving away, Glenn.

GLENN: Shirley wanted to know if you thought that the -- if you thought the gas crisis was over, are they going to flop back up and down?

STU: Oh, no, this is completely over, Glenn. You know, look. You remember -- remember the -- remember penny candy?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And remember -- now they're at dollar stores, which is so expensive. But this, gas prices now is more like the penny candy. You take a big, you know, handful as you walk out. You don't even think about how many you have because it doesn't matter. The price is so cheap now. It's under $4 a gallon.

GLENN: So I just want to make this clear. So you believe the price falling down, it will never go back up?

STU: Oh, no. It's impossible, Glenn. With this momentum, it's been an entire week of dropping.

GLENN: What's been causing the price to go down?

STU: What's causing the price to go down? Well, actually let's talk to an everyday person here. I'm here with Samuel. Samuel, how have the gas prices been affecting you?

VOICE: Oh, it's been great. I actually took a day off from work, excited today to go out and go driving around.

STU: You are saving so much money on these gas prices, you don't even have to work anymore?

VOICE: I do, but I took the day off today.

GLENN: This is starting to sound like an infomercial.

STU: I'm sorry, Glenn, the gas pumps are so loud, there's these drills that go, jeeep, jeeep, they go off and I can't hear anything. Sir, some people have suggested crazy ideas like drilling for more oil domesticly. What do you think about that solution?

VOICE: Well, that's one of the reasons why I'm so excited is that this proves, this energy crisis here, this proves that, you know, the prices can come down and we didn't have to drill one bit. We didn't drill at all. So basically no drilling and the prices go down, which means if we would drill, prices would go up. It's basic supply and demand economics.

STU: Wow. There you go, Glenn.

GLENN: Wait a minute. That doesn't make any sense whatsoever. The demand is going to keep going up if we don't drill. Of course the price is going to continue to grow.

STU: Unfortunately I'm going to have to cut you off because right now Samuel looks very concerned about the environment. Samuel, what's your passion?

VOICE: Yeah, look, I'm very excited right now because this also means without all this drilling that we can save oceans, you know, the environment, we can save --

GLENN: How are you going to save oceans?

VOICE: Oceans and seas, we can save bays. We've got ponds.

GLENN: How do you go without? What is gas prices dropping a dime, how is that saving the oceans and the seas?

STU: What else would he save, Samuel?

CALLER: I guess he's not getting it. But you don't drill, you're also saving the canals.

STU: Don't forget about the waterfalls and tributaries.

GLENN: I don't --

STU: I don't know what's so funny about saving the Delta.

GLENN: I don't even know how it safes my gas going down a dime. Gas is Gooding to go up. I may stay down a little while, may go down more but then it's going to come back up because we're not drilling for our own oil.

STU: Well, there you go, Glenn. You heard it from the experts. Samuel from the gas station who says that we can save -- what was it, Samuel?

VOICE: Look, if you want to keep the puddles dirty, then that's your problem. I don't want that on my conscience.

GLENN: Oh, these gas prices are really taking this country by storm and it is so great. I think, I think maybe by tomorrow, because they have fallen for a week, I think maybe by tomorrow it will be time for Chuck Schumer to go ahead and announce that the energy crisis is over.


 

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.
