Dan Blog: Where in the world is Joe Biden?

Joe Biden burst on the scene promising to join Barack Obama and make some real change in this country. He never could have imagined the scope of the change he’d experience in just a short time on the campaign trail.

Just a few short weeks ago Joe Biden had the press hovering outside the gates of his Delaware home, waiting like vultures over their prey, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Senator and maybe even a scoop. Once selected, Biden was all too happy to hop aboard the Obama express to the White House. Perhaps it was that daydream dancing in his head that had him talking about Amtrak all the time.

Paying nearly $200 round trip to ride the super plush, super high speed Acela Express train everyday to and from Washington D.C. isn’t exactly the ‘everyman’ tale that Obama had hoped to hear from his newly crowned running mate. Joe---tell me about the Corolla you drive around or something---anything but the most expensive, CEO train in America! I guess Barack Obama was too blinded by his angelic choir and foam Greek columns to notice or care. Neither candidate cared---- after all, the democrats could do no wrong. It’s time for change!

Then John McCain announced his running mate.

And---to quote the immortal host of ‘Unsolved Mysteries’, Robert Stack (God rest his soul)---‘he was never seen again’.

Glenn mentioned it on the radio program that he has vanished---and it’s true. Joe Biden got some change all right---the only problem is that the change involves going from shining star to flickering flameout.

Here are about the only two things I’ve seen in the media in the last couple of days that the press felt worthy to mention of Biden. First up:

Biden: Palin not a step forward for women---she’s a step backwards

Ouch. Yeah, that’s the road you want to go down, Joe---to bash women. No seriously, that will play well. Go with it. Don’t forget to work a train mention in there too.

And the other story:

Biden comments called a ‘new low’

Catchy headline with no meat, perhaps? Biden hopes you think so and brush off the headline because if you click on the link it only gets worse. When talking about special needs children and stem cell research, he said ‘well guess what folks, if you care about it, why don’t you support stem cell research?’.

Joe—good job getting at least some media attention---bad job on it being because you are questioning how much Sarah Palin cares about special needs kids…you know, ones LIKE HER OWN child.

Thinks aren’t looking good for the Amtrak warrior these days. Despite his superhuman taxpayer funded efforts of riding in a huge, plush recliner for an agonizing 90 minutes to and fro work---which make Marcus Luttrell’s efforts look like kids play in comparison (Marcus—I know you know this but just for the sake of my own life---that was sarcasm) ---Joe is somehow not stacking up against the hockey mom from Wasilla.

At least Joe has a lot of time on his hands on that train, as he’s looking out the window and into houses, to wonder just how in the heck he’s going to not get embarrassed in his debate with Sarah Barracuda.

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.
