Hillary's Plant



GLENN: I want to play this audio of Hillary Clinton and the question that she got from this college student. This is from -- was this on CNN, Stu?

DAN: Yes, it was on CNN, and she's talking about she was -- she wants to go to all these rallies and, you know, she wants to see all the candidates. And they picked her up and they offered to take prize to go to this event. So she's in the car with these Hillary people.

GLENN: The Clinton campaign picked them up?

DAN: I forget exactly what. It's like a campaign, whatever, they were offering rides.

STU: Certainly candidates do that all over the state.

GLENN: So here it is. Here she is talking to CNN about her question that she asked Hillary Clinton that wasn't her question.

VOICE: Brought me to one of the senior staffers and he asked me if there was any question I wanted to ask and I thought about it and I said, yeah, can I ask how her energy plan compares to the other candidates' energy plan. And he said, I don't think that's a good idea because I don't know how familiar she is with their plans. And he showed me --

GLENN: Just a second. Stop. I mean, I've got a problem with not familiar -- shouldn't you be familiar with the other candidates' plans? I mean, maybe you're not honest enough but if somebody else has a better plan you could -- you know, I like this part of the plan, but here's where they go wrong. You should probably know your candidates, you know, the other candidates' plans, you know. Let's just say you are a dirty campaigner. Steal the good ideas and make them yours! For the love of Pete.

All right. But that's not the real problem. Here it is.

VOICE: And then he showed me in his binder, he had a piece of paper that had typed out questions on it and the top of them was planned specifically for a college student.

GLENN: Stop, stop. He showed me his binder which, you've got a young college student talking about, you know, an encounter with a Clinton and, you know, show me your binder. I believe they're talking about actual binders here. But in the binder is a typed out sheet that says questions and the top one is, for college students. Now, I just want you to remember this. It's in the binder. It's a typed out sheet with questions in different categories.

VOICE: That said, like, college student. When I asked how it worked, he said, raise your hand when she asks for questions, raise your hand and she'll call on you. So I mean, I don't know for sure that she knew in advance but there were, like, 200 people there and everyone was raising their hand. I was one out of four.

GLENN: Stop. I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt. I don't think she knew what the question was per se. I know she knows the answer to that question because it clearly has been done before, but I absolutely believe that, you know, a candidate, all candidates are probably told in advance, you know, we did some, you know, some operative work and you should call on this person and this person and this person. So here's the question and the answer that she asked and was answered by Hillary Clinton.

VOICE: As a young person, I'm worried about the long-term effects of global warming. How does your plan combat climate change?

HILLARY CLINTON: Well, you should be worried. I find as I travel around Iowa that it's usually young people who ask me about global warming.

GLENN: Stop. Of course it is. It's in the binder. That's the college student question. I mean, jeez. For the love of Pete, of course it is. Now, Hillary Clinton's camp came out and said, this is not systematic, this isn't -- maybe this happened this one time but it doesn't happen usually. You've got it in the binder!


Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

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

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?
