Glenn Beck - For Sale: American Sovereignty




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on FOX News Channel

Our sovereignty is being sold to the highest bidder — and it ain't you, Jack!

Virtually every problem we have can be fixed locally. Your neighbor lost their job? Help them. Care for them. Support them. Yet, instead of looking to the local community for help, we're being forced to rely on the international one.

This is all playing out at the G20 summit in London, where the international banking community is trying to fix the very problems they created.

By the way, I just saw a question from the new FOX News Opinion Dynamics poll: How much of problem for the country today are: greedy corporate executives and power hungry politicians? A major problem — according to 69 percent and 73 percent, respectively.

Good news is there's hope in that, but that bad news is both of them are working to solve the problems they created.

Here at home we have a system that is so distorted that it allows 80-90 percent of incumbents to be reelected, even in the face of all-time low approval ratings. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle love to say they hate big business, but as long as they can dictate the terms of the relationship, they love it.

And that's what's now happening at the G20. You have global politicians, worldwide businessmen and international bankers all trying to protect and stabilize giant global corporations, like Citigroup, GM or Chrysler, because their money and influence helps them grab even more power in their home countries.

President Obama wasn't even there to defend American capitalism; it was Tim Geithner, who I want to point out was appointed not elected.

Geithner is blaming hedge funds, private equity firms and derivatives markets for not supervising themselves. So now they will all fall under a new framework of federal oversight — which will obviously solve everything. After all, the SEC, Congress and Tim Geithner had tons of power and they prevented investment banks like Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns from getting out of control, right?

The stock market — up over 200 points today — sure seems to think this is the right idea. I love it when the uber-rich become even uber-richer, but is anybody talking about the small business owners who are responsible for generating 70 percent of all new jobs created in the last decade?

Oh and one more thing: They decided to borrow or print another trillion dollars of your money and give it to the rest of the world. This selfish trading of temporary gain for long-term suffering reminds me of something that someone very wise once said: "Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

(Thank you, Benjamin Franklin)

Do you think the foreign diplomats at the G20 really care or do they just have contempt for the American people?

Global politicians and global corporations are playing games; they'll get rich by building a box for American entrepreneurs to live in. They may think they can end American sovereignty and start internationalism, but they haven't met the Americans I have, who on tax day will kick out of the box they refuse to be placed in.

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.
