Glenn Beck: Anita's husbands new job...



Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

GLENN: Oh, I am I'm sick, Pat, I'm sick of it. I'm just

PAT: Yeah. The story you kind of leaked last night on the I mean, you probably should have thought through answering the phone while you were on the air, you know? Because then

GLENN: Do you have the

PAT: I don't have can you play it there?

GLENN: I can't play it off of this.

PAT: Oh, okay.

GLENN: Let me just see if I can send this link to you.

PAT: Send it to me and then I can

GLENN: I feel so bad, I really do. Last night we put it

PAT: Just a horrible misunderstanding.

GLENN: Really is.

PAT: You know, because I would hate to see, I would hate to see something bad happen with the job opportunity. I mean, I'm sure that arrangements have been made and deals have been struck and, you know, maybe they haven't officially consummated anything but, you know, I'll bet they're putting the wheels in motion, wouldn't you think?

GLENN: No.

PAT: I mean, it's like, when we were talking about the job, you know, it started two months before it happened or whatever.

GLENN: Yeah, sure, sure.

PAT: And I started making arrangements.

GLENN: Sure, sure, maybe he sold his house or told his business partners that he was out of it. Look, here's what happened. Do you have the, do you have the audio there? Click on the audio. If I just may, if I may quote the Examiner here: Glenn Beck on his television show told viewers that he said just too much, and I did.

PAT: You did.

GLENN: I did.

PAT: You really did.

GLENN: The statement preceded a mysterious phone call that Beck answered live during his show with the message that the husband of the White House communications director and Fox News attacker Anita Dunn was getting a new job. According to Beck a huge announcement is pending regarding Anita Dunn's husband, Robert Bauer and his new controversial job. But for some Bauer's wife, Anita Dunn, is already fraught with controversy and Bauer, too.

PAT: I don't know if you said it was a controversial

GLENN: I don't think I did.

PAT: job, did you?

GLENN: No, it was going to be a big job, going to be an important job.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: It's just going to be the chief counsel for the White House. That's all

PAT: Gosh.

GLENN: I said it again!

PAT: I hope he doesn't spoil anything.

GLENN: I've got to call the White House and apologize to them. You know what?

PAT: You want me to do that?

GLENN: Would you just do that? Somebody just call. Would you just call sometime today and congratulate?

PAT: I will. Anita?

GLENN: the White House and Anita on her husband's new job there as the chief oh, I've got to stop doing that! I hope this hasn't, I hope this hasn't put because look, this guy's really important.

PAT: He's done he's already worked with Obama quite a bit.

GLENN: Quite a bit.

PAT: Quite a bit.

GLENN: Quite a bit. His law firm, he is the chair of the political arm of this law firm I think out in Los Angeles, and his law firm has already, I think have done a million dollars just since, in the last 12 months with Obama.

PAT: Oh, okay.

GLENN: And he's also, he's represented ACORN in court. So

PAT: So it would be so great for him to be with Obama now.

GLENN: Yeah. But it might cause some problems.

PAT: You know?

GLENN: Because Obama has no connections to ACORN.

PAT: None.

GLENN: So

PAT: I don't think he's even heard of the

GLENN: His chief legal counsel oh... (mumbling). Okay, I think I got it now.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: So... he's also the guy who had the firm sending threatening letters to radio stations that if you played certain ads? Do you remember that?

PAT: I do.

GLENN: That they would sue you. So wouldn't it be great if you're trying to do a hostile takeover or intimidate the media to have your

PAT: Your chief intimidator.

GLENN: Don't say it!

PAT: Sorry.

GLENN: I almost said it. Now you please.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Do whatever you have to do to remember. Don't say

PAT: Don't say that he's going to be the chief

GLENN: No, don't!

PAT: All right.

GLENN: Okay. Isn't he the guy also that wrote the letters against the NRA?

PAT: I think he is.

GLENN: I think he is. I think I have that letter in my office some place. I'll have to look for that.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Huh. Wouldn't that be great? I hope I

PAT: I hope it's still on because

GLENN: I hope it is, too.

PAT: They make a great team.

GLENN: They do.

PAT: They have done some work together.

GLENN: It'll be great. It's going to be great. It can't be true.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Because how could I possibly get that information, really?

PAT: That's why it was so weird when the phone rang last night on the show.

GLENN: And it did, right in the middle of the sentence.

Candidate here, the perfect candidate. (Phone ringing)

PAT: Listen, there it is.

GLENN: Oh, boy. Oh, boy. Telephone call. This is our hang on. This is our refounders and tip thing? Yes? Mmm hmmm.

See, right now I'm hearing, you are never going to believe who's going to be the chief legal

PAT: Done it again. Not very good at remembering.

GLENN: I'm not.

Well, I've been awfully worried about him. He's going to be okay? He didn't lose his job, I don't think. Okay. All right, thank you.

America, you are going to be excited. You know the lady who's on the other end of that phone, what's her name, Anita Dunn?

PAT: The red phone.

GLENN: But I've been so worried because I thought maybe there's something wrong. Maybe she's, I don't know, maybe who knows. So I started doing some checking on the family, and we just got a phone call from somebody who doesn't want to be known. They don't want anybody to know who they are, but they just brought me good news because I was concerned, maybe there's something wrong with the family. No, there's not. In fact, her husband, he's fantastic. We'll explain who he is, but I just want you to know

GLENN: Stop, stop, I don't want to reveal that he's going to be the chief oh! Now let me ask you this, Pat. If you were in the White House and you had a guy who because I've read it just recently again. He doesn't even have a college education. He's just a dope. He's a nobody. Where did this guy even come from? He's crazy! He's riddled with ADD. He cries all the time. We've just done a massive smear campaign on him for months, trying to show what a bad guy he was that everybody who's listened to him or read any of his books over the years know and quite frankly are sick of hearing him talk about how much of a scumbag he used to be. Anyway, who is this guy? And now we've only told a handful of people, just a handful of people. Maybe, maybe 10, all there in the White House, maybe 10! Only our best friends know it! Don't you think that maybe you might say, who's talking? Who is the leak in the White House? Whew. When you can't trust a group of revolutionaries

PAT: Boy, who can you.

GLENN: Who can you trust? When you

PAT: That would destroy all of my faith.

GLENN: When you can't trust a group of people who are only standing behind you because you've promised to shoot all the enemies in the head.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And you're like, hey, this guy's not getting the job done, I mean, he promised me one thing and then another, I mean, when you can't trust them to stand behind you even though you are screwing them and knifing them in the back, I mean, who can you trust?

PAT: Nobody.

GLENN: Nobody, I guess.

PAT: Nobody.

GLENN: Nobody. And maybe that's a good rule of thumb. They should go, trust no one. Because what you know we'll soon know, too. But don't worry. I'm really good at keeping secrets. You tell me something, I can keep it to myself.

PAT: Seriously? Because I

GLENN: Yeah. You call me up and say Anita's husband's going to be the chief legal okay, I'll get better. I'll get better at it.

PAT: See, that's what I was talking about.

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.

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.
