GLENN: I'm just seeing that CPAC, the conference is just getting underway now in Washington, D.C. I'm going to be speaking there. I'm giving the key note address on Saturday. Fox News has decided to carry the entire speech. So they will be carrying it Saturday afternoon. Do you even know what time that speech starts?

STU: I heard both 5:30 and 6:00 Eastern but I'm not 100% sure which one is right.

GLENN: Okay. So

PAT: A speech so big, they have to cover it at 5:30 and 6:00. In its entirety.

GLENN: No, I think they are only going to cover

PAT: Two fabulous show times on Fox News.

GLENN: I'm wondering if because I know last year CNN and MSNBC covered Rush Limbaugh and they made fun of the way he dressed, they made fun of, you know, how fat he was and everything else. I mean, there's plenty of opportunity to make fun of, you know, how fat I am and et cetera, et cetera.

STU: Yes, there is. We're going to be taking a lot of those opportunities on Monday's radio program.

GLENN: Wait a minute. I don't think that's

STU: No, tune in for that. In Hours 1, 2 and 3 and, of course, 4.

GLENN: (Laughing). I started my diet on Monday. I was

PAT: Are you keeping to it?

GLENN: What?

PAT: Are you keeping to it?

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah, I am. I started my diet on Monday. I have just been so just let me eat myself into a coma that, you know, when I first got on TV, I was scared skinny. There's nothing like going on national TV and knowing that the camera ads in my case 50 pounds, but there's nothing like going on television and being fat. You're scared skinny. So I got down to 205, 208 and about a year ago that started going awry and now I was at... okay, I was at 232 and, wow. Wow. Can I tell you something? When you get up and you are winded from brushing your teeth, you are a little out of shape. You are a little out of shape.

STU: When you have trouble lifting your leg up to get on top of the scale to weigh yourself?

PAT: I find for me I'm deceptively sexy at about 495.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Are you really?

PAT: Yeah. I carry it well, you know?

STU: How much do you have to lose to get down to 495?

PAT: To get down to 495? About 312 pounds.

STU: I need to lose about 250.

PAT: Really?

STU: To get down to 495 right now.

GLENN: So I started exercising and, you know, I just hate it so much.

PAT: What exercise did you do?

STU: Yeah, you didn't

PAT: Come on, you did not exercise.

GLENN: Yeah, I did. I used the Stairmaster.

STU: You went in that room?

GLENN: I went in that room.

PAT: Really?


PAT: What time day was it? I'm in there all the time.

GLENN: Mercury built we built here in New York City at great union expense, we built a gym in here for everybody to use a gym. It's the most underused room.

PAT: By everybody you mean no one. Nobody uses that room.

GLENN: No, no. Kevin, Kevin does.

PAT: Oh, two people use the room.

STU: Liz does, right?

GLENN: Yeah. We have 30 employees now and two people use it. Count them, three. I've used

STU: This is like a government program.


STU: It's like we spent a ton of money for something almost no one uses.

GLENN: But we should because it would drive down our healthcare expenses.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: (Laughing). I'm going to start penalizing people in their paychecks. How many Twinkies did you have?

STU: I like this.

GLENN: But so I started, you know, using the Stairmaster and

STU: How did that go for you?

GLENN: That was good.

STU: Was it like walking up stairs because that sucks. I don't know if anyone else has noticed that. Great

PAT: That's why there's elevators.

GLENN: Somebody on the staff said, I just want to get this clear, Glenn. Because they asked me, what piece of equipment did you use? They were quizzing me, what piece of equipment did you use? Which one is that? What does it look like? Where's that room? Where is the gym in this building? I had all kinds of and I said, I used the, used the Stairmaster and they said, so let me ask you a question. You spent 20 minutes walking on a device that similarities walking upstairs when you could do that for free because you work and you are on the 40th floor of a building. And I said, you know what? If you want to strap a television to your back and walk in front of me, then maybe I'll consider it.

STU: Pat, there's actually one little piece of breaking news here and I could be wrong. I don't have 100% of the knowledge. This is what you were talking about last week. The case isn't 100% ready to be made, but I don't believe there is a Stairmaster in that room. Can anyone back me up on that? We're getting nos here from the whole crew. There is no Stairmaster in that room! I will go in there. I'm going in there right now.

GLENN: Go in there right now.

STU: I'm going in there right now.

PAT: There really is.

GLENN: Oh, it's an elliptical. Oh, yeah, Stu, it's an elliptical. Do you expect me to know the difference between a Stairmaster and an elliptical? Please. We're waiting, we're waiting.

PAT: If you used it, we expect you to know the difference.

GLENN: I didn't know the difference between it.

PAT: If you used it, you'd know the difference.

GLENN: Here he comes.

STU: There is no Stairmaster in that room!

GLENN: It's an elliptical. I used the brown thing, you know, the brown machine in there.

STU: You are so you know so little about exercise, you can't even name the equipment properly.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, yes.

PAT: Glenn Beck lies so much, darling. He doesn't even know when he's lying anymore.

GLENN: (Laughing). It was the one that I said, my wife, I said honey, I can't exercise. It hurts my knees. And she said, then get this machine. It looks complex. I actually stood on that damn thing. It's so complex

STU: The elliptical?

GLENN: Yeah. It's got so many buttons on it, I'm just like, I just want to walk, just want to walk and that's when the worm over in the corner said why don't you just use the stairs. Shut up! Exercise does not put me in a good mood. Just doesn't

STU: It's a terrible process, I think we can all agree on that, even when you don't have a Stairmaster to do it.


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


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.
