Glenn Beck: Why is West Wing covered?

GLENN: Have you seen that they have wrapped the West Wing in some sort of a tarp. Now, the way Drudge is reporting this is that nobody knows why they have wrapped the West Wing in tarp. Now, I don't know. Maybe they're I don't know, Stu. What do you think that could be going on there?

STU: Well, I mean, you have the possibility of a bug situation.

GLENN: That's what I think it is. However, Marcus Luttrell was over at my house last night and he said, no, you have to wrap the entire building, and the tarp doesn't go over the roof, and you have to wrap the whole thing. And if you are going to do the bug spray. Which, of course, would mean that the bees know. I mean... the bees... the bees clearly know.


The Bees Know


Exclusive new t-shirt from the Glenn Beck...

PAT: And they are trying to get rid of them. They are trying to silence the bees. Is that it?

GLENN: I don't know. They also could be beheading infidels--

PAT: At the White House? That seems unlikely to me.

GLENN: I know, but I

PAT: It seems unlikely.

GLENN: I'm going with the bug infestation myself, but it could be

STU: I'm pretty sure that that's not true, the infidel thing.

GLENN: You don't think they are beheading

STU: I'm going to go with 100% not true on that one.

GLENN: Really? 100%? You are 100% positive ?

STU: 100% sure, yeah.

GLENN: they didn't cover all the windows in the executive wing because they are not beheading infidels? 100%? Sure.

STU: Just like I'm 100% sure that the Constitution allows freedom of religion. I know I'm breaking news to everyone.

GLENN: That is crazy.

PAT: Well, you would have been, had the president not just said it.

GLENN: Right. That came as a shock to me on Friday.

PAT: That was stunning.

GLENN: I didn't

PAT: But then I looked it up and I'm like, he's right.

GLENN: You are that is incredible.

PAT: Look, it's not you don't have to dig very deep. It's right there in the First Amendment.

GLENN: That's why you were a constitutional professor.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: A professor of constitutional law.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Which I don't think is true. Yeah, check it out. I don't think it's true.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: I don't think he was a constitutional professor.

STU: Well, we heard him.

PAT: I think he was wasn't it that there was some technical thing there, that he was a constitutional lawyer, and that's not what he is.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It was professor or teacher or, I don't know.

GLENN: Yeah. Well, you know who knows. The bees. The bees know--

PAT: And that's why the tarp is up at the West Wing.

GLENN: They are hiding from the bees. They are trying to hide from the bees, or they are hiding the bees because the bees know and the bees were going to tell us.

PAT: Could they be killing bees?

GLENN: They might be. Could be a bee slaughterhouse. I don't know. What do you think of this one? Okay. So you are saying 100%.

STU: 100%.

PAT: I'm with Stu on that one.

STU: Thank you, Pat.

PAT: 100%.

GLENN: Is there a possibility

STU: No.

GLENN: That no, no, new scenario.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Is there a possibility that, like right out the window of the Oval Office, like a priest went shooting out of the window of the Oval Office and you just heard, "Get out, priest." -- "Get out, priest." You heard that?

STU: Again I'm at 100% that did not occur.

GLENN: Get out, priest. You don't think so?

STU: I feel like

PAT: I'm going to go 98% on that, probably not. 98% probably not.

GLENN: I'm out of options. Again I think they are just exterminating, you know, bugs in the White House because there seems to be a real fly problem at the White House, and

PAT: It's true. Crawling around his face during interviews.

GLENN: You can't have a president have flies land all over him.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Without somebody saying, what's up with the flies? But apparently they have an insect problem at the White House.

STU: Right.

PAT: They have got to stop leaving the doors and windows open. We do that and we get the same problem.

GLENN: Or they could stop having bullcrap come out of their mouths, which I hear attracts flies.

PAT: There is that.

STU: I do feel like it's being reported as, like, this mystery. Is it really a mystery?

GLENN: Well, it's not a mystery.

STU: Someone knows. It's probably, just they probably haven't had an answer to the question yet.

GLENN: Yeah. See, that's why I said, the way that Drudge is reporting it is, it's a mystery. Has anybody asked why the tarp is up there?

STU: I'm sure when we ask, someone that's not going to be something they are going to be hiding the cause of.

GLENN: I don't think so.

STU: I don't think so.

GLENN: If they do, then we might be concerned that one of the other two options may have happened.

PAT: Either the priest or the beheadings? Those are the other two options?

STU: Well, the bees.

GLENN: Well, and the bees.

PAT: Okay, the bees.

GLENN: I mean, because the bees, the bees know.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

STU: Have we checked the addresses of people who are buying "The bees know" T shirts? Do we know if the White House has ordered any?

GLENN: Wait a minute, what about this, what about this option?

STU: Are you just ignoring my "Bees know" T shirt idea?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Because I think it's possible.

GLENN: What about this option? What about, what if, like, the president had a meeting in the Oval Office and he invited the do nothing Republicans up and he said, let me make this clear wait a minute, before I do that, I've just got to go to the bathroom. And he left and they had installed those spiky things in the ceiling and it just kind of came down on all the do nothing Republicans and they're just having to mop up the mess?

STU: Like an Indiana Jones sort of thing?

GLENN: Kind of like that. Maybe a big rock came down and the president said, I've got to go. Because it is an oval. So maybe they got a big oval rock that just came out of the ceiling and just went... boof.

PAT: I'm going to go 99.6% no on that.

GLENN: Okay. I'm out of options. I don't know why then they have covered the West Wing in the tarp.

STU: I think still the bug infestation is probably the most likely.

PAT: Maybe they are doing remodeling, maybe that's a possibility.

GLENN: Are you going to, they might be scraping paint off the side of the White House? That's crazy.

PAT: I know, that's nuts.

GLENN: That's crazy.

PAT: That's nuts, yeah.

STU: That wouldn't be a mystery at all.

GLENN: Consider the big rock.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Okay? Just consider it for a while.

PAT: I have now and now I'm up to 99.7% no.

GLENN: But there is still

STU: Still a .3% chance.

GLENN: Still a shadow of a doubt.

STU: So you are telling me there's a chance.

PAT: (Laughing).

STU: I like that, that's possible, hey, anything's possible.

PAT: I mean, anything's possible.

GLENN: Hey, if I would have said we would be a socialist nation in 18 months after this president, which I did, how many would have believed me?

STU: I kind of believed you on that one actually.

GLENN: Did you?

STU: It does seem like we're going that way, doesn't it?

GLENN: Yeah hey, by the way, have you heard that we're now cloning cattle from dead animals? Does that sound like a good idea to anybody?

PAT: Ummm, no, I don't like the whole cloning thing at all.

GLENN: How about this, how about this.

PAT: Dead or alive.

GLENN: They put a tarp up because they're cloning dead cats and making them into vegetables?

STU: How would that process even work? It seems incredibly unlikely.

GLENN: CIA is involved. That's what they want you to think, that they can't do that. They want you to think they can't do that.

PAT: Oh, they are doing a good job because I don't think they can do that.

GLENN: Oh, please.

PAT: They are doing a really good job?

GLENN: Oh, please. You're part of it.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: You know? Obviously

PAT: I don't buy into the nine listen conspiracy, either. So I'm obviously a part of it. I work for the CIA.

GLENN: Are you telling me scientists can model weather, they can't get it right next week but they can model weather for the next 1,000 years and they can't turn dead cats into vegetables?

STU: (Laughing). You say it like that, it almost seems logical.

GLENN: (Laughing).

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."

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?
