GLENN: There's boy, you know, Chris Dodd, Chris Dodd and what's his name, Roland Burris, they are sure doing a bang up job on raising a lot of money here for their Senate campaign. Senator Roland Burris, the guy who Blagojevich appointed, he has raised $845 for his reelection campaign and Chris Dodd, he has raised $4,250 from five people that live in Connecticut. There's only five people that live in Connecticut that have donated to Chris Dodd. Now here's the interesting thing. Chris Dodd may have only made $4,250 from five residents in Connecticut, but he has collected $604,745 from people living outside of the State of Connecticut. Why would you care about Chris Dodd if you live outside of the State of Connecticut? Why would you why do you want that? I mean, you know, let me ask you this question: Why is it legal to donate outside of the state? That's not even your representative. He has nothing to do with you. Oh, Stu's looking, rolling his eyes. "Yes, he does."

STU: I've got a good idea, good idea for the name of this bill, McCain/Feingold. Let's just start let's have more rules about where you can donate your own money.

GLENN: No. You know what, you know what, this is what the progressive movement changed the way we elect the Senate. This isn't the way the Senate was supposed to be elected. The founding fathers didn't want it elected this way. The progressive movement changed it. It was appointed by the governor. That's the way we did it. The legislature would get together and go, "You, you represent your state." And what they wanted to do is make sure that the senators were not beholden to Washington; they were beholden to the states. So the progressive movement changed that. Now these senators, they represent all of the people. No, they don't. They represent my state. They're supposed to have my state's interests, but they don't. What they represent now is the nation and the globe and what's the best for all of mankind. Well, what kind of control do you have on these guys? Why should somebody in California be able t o donate to Senator Chris Dodd?

STU: It's because it's their money and they should be able to do whatever they want with it within the realms of legitimate practice.

GLENN: So in other words wait a minute. So in other words, let me rephrase this: Why would you spend your money if you live in California trying to get Chris Dodd reelected in Connecticut?

STU: Because it is something that backs up your values. For example, there were conservatives who were raising money for specific in trouble conservative candidates in the House that were outside their district. Same thing with Democrats: They were raising money for people that they thought were in danger that weren't getting funding from

GLENN: The guy in Georgia, we talked to him. What's his name? That was

STU: Saxby Chambliss.

GLENN: Saxby Chambliss, yeah.

STU: It's because it is more important to them. It is more an extra senator is that important to Republicans and conservatives, and they wanted to put their money there; they should be able to put their money there.

GLENN: So is that a good thing? Because now you've got people in you've got $4,250 from five different people. Five people are like, "Okay, I'll give you $1,000."

STU: Not quite $1,000.

GLENN: Not quite $1,000. You've got five people in Connecticut and then you've got four people from around the country that is giving him over $600,000 for his reelection campaign. I mean, does that serve the people of Connecticut? No, it doesn't serve the people of Connecticut. And it also allows people to continue to get elected that shouldn't get elected. If you can't raise money from your own people, you shouldn't be able to do it.

STU: But don't you feel a little weird about trying to restrict

GLENN: Not at all.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yes. Here's where I'll go. Here's where I'll go: You're right, we shouldn't restrict that at all. We shouldn't restrict that at all. What we should restrict is terms. You get one term, but buy, see you later.

STU: You know, that's a big that's one of your biggest points.

GLENN: Get these dirt balls out.

STU: You know, I understand that. I'm not 100% sure on that but I think

GLENN: Here's where I'm absolutely, here's where I'm absolutely sure. You get these slime balls out, and also I'm going to put term limits into here's a crazy idea the State Department and all of these bureaucratic administrative bullcrap that who are these people? Who are these people that are running the State Department? Who are these people that are running everything? They are all these think tank people, they are all these people that are elite Is that, "Oh, well, they know better than the president of the United States." I'm reading a book on and I've been reading it forever because it's not really pressing. It's my bathroom reader. It's Truman and the State of Israel and it's how he stuck to his guns on developing the State of Israel. He gets a very bad name with people. They say, well, he was just it's not worth explaining. He gets a bad name on it; I'm reading it. The point of it is the State Department was calling the shots. The State Department, they were doing everything they could to call the shots on this one.& nbsp; Now, maybe they were right, maybe they were wrong, I don't know, but the president of the United States answers to the people. The president of the United States and the congress, they are the ones that have to answer to the people. Who are all these faceless bureaucrats that are making all of these decisions? Who are they? Who are they? Get them out. Fire everybody in the State Department.

STU: You are the ultimate stimulus plan because you are firing everyone.


 

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?

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.
