Glenn Beck: Mother of all snakes

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama's everything science.

GLENN: Of course, you know, this show has won all kinds of science awards over the years. Like we've got plaques and plates and stuff like that that are hanging on all the walls, a lot of ribbons and stuff. But we like to also, we like to also bring you some of the science, you know, for people who are toting their guns appeared reading their Bibles. Scientists today have made another discovery. It was the mother of all snakes. A nightmarish behemoth as long as a school bus, as heavy as a Volkswagen Beetle that ruled the ancient Amazonian rainforest for two million years before slithering into nonexistence. Now this monster which weighed in at 2500 pounds has resurfaced in fossils taken from an open pit coal mine in Colombia. A startling example of growth gone wild. We should have -- why are we disrupting this snake seminary to dig for coal? The snake is estimated at 43 feet long. That is the size of the largest T-Rex that scientists currently know of. "This is amazing. It challenges everything we know about how big a snake can be," says herpetologist -- hang on, side note here, your Honor. Did you ever introduce yourself as a herpetologist? Spelled herpetologist? "So what do you do for a living?" "I'm a herpetologist." Okay, thanks. I've got to go wash my hands. So he's a herpetologist and also a Holocaust denier obviously. Jack Conrad of the American Museum of Natural History who is apparently denying that science on snakes has been settled a long time ago. Scientists identified hundreds of specimens that have been dug from the mine including the largest freshwater turtle ever known and beautifully preserved skeletons of an extinct species of crocodile known to have been in South America but never seen there before. Wow, finally science is back in her rightful place, huh? The fact that they had no idea these crocodiles were ever there is just proof that they really did know that they had always been there. You know, you read your Bible, you don't understand.

The find not only sheds new light on snake evolution but it also provides telling insights on climate. Wait a minute. Insights on climate? Hello, Mr. Flat earther, there are no insights left on climate. The debate is over; the science is settled. The snake flourished about 58 million to 60 million years ago, because it was cold-blooded. The tropical climate was 6 to 8 degrees warmer than it is today. Hold it just a second. The climate was 6 to 8 degrees warmer? What? I thought nine out of the ten warmest years have all been within the last six months. Isn't that what Al Gore said, something like that? Or maybe it's 99% of the warmest 100 minutes have all been within the last 120 seconds. I have the ice core some place. I don't know exactly, but I do know my 12-year-old understands this so much better than I do. I still can't get past this. The tropical climate had to be 6 to 8 degrees warmer than it is today for a snake that large to survive. What Holocaust denier came up with that kind of information? Hello, Dick Cheney. That wasn't Dick Cheney. It was actually evolutionary biologist Jason Head of the University of Toronto. "This sheds some light on the current theories about what happens at the equator during periodic bouts of natural global warming." Wait a minute. University of -- evolutionary biologist Jason Head of the University of Toronto: What happens at the equator during periodic bouts of natural global warming? Natural global warming? Impossible! Oh, and I'm sure the Jews weren't burned by the Nazis!

"One school of thought" -- quoting -- "one school of thought holds that temperatures at the equator are buffered, staying relatively constant while more northern and southern latitudes heat up." Schools of thought? The debate is over, scientists. Stop thinking! But really, seriously what do the Holocaust deniers believe happened to the snake? I mean, remember it had to be 6 to 8 degrees warmer than it was now just to survive. Researchers now believe -- quoting from the article -- that the climate got even hotter, hastening. Wait a minute. So temperatures have never been warmer than they are today except when they're 6 to 8 degrees warmer and when they're warmer than that. But this one degree of warming that we're dealing with now definitely going to set the Earth on fire. By the way, the 1 degree of warming that we really don't have now because it's been going down in temperature for the last few years.

Oh, my gosh, see, this is why we win awards in science on this program. Because you flat earthers probably don't -- you know, you don't think in the scientific way. I just realized these scientists had to be paid by big oil, big tobacco and big snake, you know? Come up with a fake study that they won't even have peer review.

By the way, you can read this paper in that hard core right-wing blog known as Nature.

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.
