AMBER ALERT: Al Gore MIA during blizzards

GLENN: Well, the snow is hammering Washington D.C. again. I believe God is just saying, "I got your global warming here, eh? You want a piece of global warming?" Meanwhile we have the apologist over at NBC News saying that this is proof do we have the audio?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: This is proof that global warming is real.



It's cold because it's warm...

VOICE: Here's the problem. These snopocalypses that have been going through D.C. and other extreme weather events are precisely what climate scientists have been predicting, fearing and anticipating because of global warming. Why is that? The thinking that warmer air temperatures on the Earth, a higher air temperature has a greater capacity to hold moisture at any temperature. And then as winter comes in, that warm air cools full of water and you get heavier precipitation on a more regular basis. In fact, you could argue these storms are not evidence of a lack of global warming but are evidence of global warming. Thus the 26 inches of snowfall in the D.C. area and the second giant storm this year.

GLENN: This is why NBC wonders why, what was it, Monday night I saw the ratings? We beat NBC or MSNBC by 18 times. At 18 times the ratings of MSNBC. And they wonder why. They keep switching up the host now. They are talking about switching up some more hosts. It ain't the host, man. It's your news. Nobody is buying that the cold is caused by the heat. I mean, that's just ridiculous. You know what I tell you, that there's a story in The Wall Street Journal today. Climate Group Admits Mistakes. Okay. These are the mistakes, claim that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035 based on the 1999 new scientist article. Scientist quoted in the article now says there's no scientific basis for the claim. The glaciers are melting. The scientist that wrote it said, there's no scientific evidence that that's... no, uh uh, no.

Next one, a claim that agricultural yields in some African countries could half by 2020 is based on a report by a Canadian environmental thinktank, not peer reviewed science. Remember how many times, "These are peer reviewed, peer reviewed, peer reviewed!" No, not that one, no. A claim that up to 40% of the Amazonian rainforest could react drastically to falling precipitation... wait a minute. To falling precipitation? Why would there I just turned from MSNBC. There's so much heat in the sky that when winter comes, it keeps moisture in the air.

STU: Yeah, MSNBC has a different definition of peer review which is, only their friends watch. It's a little different.

GLENN: This on the Amazonian rainforest was done by World Wildlife Federation, but they reviewed it. They wrote it and then they reviewed it. Is this good? Huh? Is this good? Yeah.

And then how about this one, a statement linking the rising temperatures to increased economic losses from the natural catastrophes contradicts the findings of the research the report cites. The IPCC says that one, okay, that one has a lot of important qualifiers in it that you should read. Oh, okay. There's not enough knives. If this, if the IPCC had been done by Japanese scientists, there's not enough knives on planet Earth for Harry Carey that should have occurred. I mean, these guys have so dishonored themselves, so dishonored scientists.

STU: Glenn Beck calls for the suicide of all scientists! Did you hear that? He might as well have said they should be all slaughtered!

PAT: I did hear that, darling. It was unbelievable how he called them to slaughter.

GLENN: We should take away his First Amendment rights. There must be some sort of mechanism for someone like him.

PAT: You know what I love is that all through the Nineties were they not claiming that the lack of snow in the winter was global warming?

GLENN: RFK 15 months ago said this isn't going to happen.

PAT: Yep. And now

GLENN: 15 months ago he said nobody

PAT: No snow in D.C.

GLENN: Nobody has a sled. I remember we used to have snowstorms. We don't have snowstorms. It's not happening anymore.

PAT: So that's what discredits them so badly is first they claim the lack of snow is global warming, then the plenty of snow is global warming. You can't have it both ways. Which is it?

GLENN: These people, it's really, truly amazing to me that they are still going for it. You know what? If we don't find Al Gore by 5:00, I'm starting an amber alert. I'm afraid he's been taken by some dirty old man and he's currently driving around in a Buick in the back seat of the trunk. I'm not sure. I'm afraid he may be molested and then buried in somebody's backyard. Please keep your eye out for Al Gore. Let's put an amber alert. I don't want to panic anyone. But it is strange that he's just disappeared in the largest snowfall in Washington D.C. history.

STU: There's a lot of money invested into this, though. You don't just give up.

GLENN: No, no.

STU: I mean, I think the advice would be don't throw good money after bad money at this point because I mean, the case is really having a lot of issues at the moment. But I mean, you know, these people have invested decades into getting them to this point.

GLENN: It really is a point again I go back to my Harry Carey point. It's not just honor, but you'd have to think, wow, I really wasted my life, haven't I? Wow, everything that I worked on seems to be a miserable failure.

PAT: You would think they would at least wait until summer, though, to reemphasize the point rather than when it's freezing cold, snowing everywhere. It's cold in Los Angeles this morning. And they might wait until you that's kind of out of your system like in July when it's hot everywhere and it's supposed to be. Then you could make a better case, couldn't you? "See, I told you, hot again."

GLENN: I don't think they are trying to make a better case. I don't think these people care.


 

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.
