New York Times/CBS News Poll: Obama's 100th Day in Office

GLENN: I look at this latest CBS poll. Race relations in the U.S., race relations in the U.S. If I said to you, how are race relations in the U.S., if I just took not from what I experienced in day to day life but just what I experience on television, Stu, just based on what you hear in the news and what people are saying and everything else, how would you think that race relations are in America?

STU: Jeez. You know, because all I keep hearing about is, you know, rightwing extremists who might attack the

GLENN: Right. How they hate the president because he's black, how there's

STU: Oh, Janeane Garofalo told me. That's the whole reason we have the tea parties.

GLENN: So it was just these tea parties because we have hate blacks. Back in July 55% of whites said race relations in the U.S. were good. 34% said it was bad, whites. Today 65% of whites say it's good, 21% say it's bad. So it's gotten much better, at least the perception.

STU: Yeah, 10 percentage points.

GLENN: Yeah. Blacks, 29% back in July, 29% said race relations in America were good. 29% said that they were good. 59% said they were bad. Today 59% say they're good and 30% say they're bad.

STU: Almost exactly the opposite.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean

STU: 30 points?

GLENN: 30 points.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: 30 points. I don't hear that. Now, nothing has changed. Nothing has changed, at least that I see. I don't think anything has changed. Okay, we have a black president. Who cares. I don't care if he's black, white, yellow. It doesn't matter to me. It hasn't changed my life at all. Now, maybe it has in the perception of you can make it in America. It is a good milestone to be able to say, look, anybody can make it. But has it changed anything else? The direction of the country? Right direction, 34% for whites. 70% for blacks. Wrong track, 56% for whites, 22% for blacks. Evaluations of the president. Overall job approval, approve or disapprove. Approve, 62% of whites. Disapprove, 27% of whites. Approve, 96% of blacks. Disapprove, 0. Some didn't answer. 4% didn't answer. 0 disapprove.

Do you remember on the lead up of the Gulf War, I read the stats of Saddam Hussein and I believe he had a 94% approval rating, may have been 96% approval rating and I said, that is not possible. That's just not possible. To me it showed the brainwashing and the threat of the state. How can you have 96% approval rating of Barack Obama, a 0% disapproval rating of Barack Obama with African Americans? No one? There's not according to CBS news, the latest poll, not a single African American disapproves of Barack Obama. Now, is that possible or is there a culture backlash where you've been trained not to say anything? Or is this true? I'd like to find an African American that disapproves. You don't exist. You are driving in your car right now; you don't exist. If you disagree with Barack Obama or disapprove of him, well, then you should reevaluate your very existence. Is it possible to have people in today's world have a 96 to 0% ratio on the issues of our day?

STU: According to CBS, there are no dissenters.

GLENN: There are no dissenters.

STU: Among African Americans, zero.

GLENN: According to global warming, there are no dissenters.

STU: Maybe Barack Obama, who knows. I'd love to hear from because I believe I've talked to African Americans who would dissent on that. I believe they exist.

GLENN: I know they exist. I have two of them on my set. Sorry.

STU: Don't disagree with CBS.

GLENN: All right. Sorry.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.

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

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.

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."
