GLENN: The food safety bill has passed and we just got the record on who voted for it. It passed 75 25?

STU: 73 25.

GLENN: Okay. So that's a lot of Republicans.

STU: Yeah. You had 25

PAT: Do we know which ones?

STU: You do. You ready for the list? Alexander.

GLENN: These are people that voted for it.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: Alexander, Tennessee. Just Republicans. Obviously every Democrat voted for it. So these are just the Republicans who voted for it. Alexander, Tennessee; Brown, Scott Brown, Massachusetts; Burr in North Carolina; Susan Collins, no surprise there in Maine; Enzi in Wyoming.

PAT: Wow.

STU: Grassley, Iowa.

PAT: Wow.

STU: Gregg, New Hampshire. Johanns in Nebraska; let's see. LeMieux, Florida.

GLENN: How did these guys, how did these guys do it in Nebraska and Iowa? How did they do it? How did these people who you're going to have to go to farmers now and say, you're going to have more paperwork to do, you're going to have to change your standards, we can tell you what animals can and cannot walk on your land at certain times. I mean, this is nuts.

STU: I mean, my guess is there's probably candy in there because it seems like all of the, you know, the Midwestern sort of that's where they are getting the support from.

GLENN: This is the Monsanto bill.

STU: Lugar, Indiana; Murkowski, Alaska.

GLENN: Do you know why this passed? Do you know why this passed?

STU: Snowe. There's only a couple more. I want to get through them here. Snowe in Maine. Vitter, Louisiana. Kind of a surprise. And that's all of them, I believe.

GLENN: Do you know the, I think it's the second biggest investment in George Soros' portfolio. Monsanto. And he just stocked up. Put more of Monsanto on his shelf. You knew this was going to pass. The big bill, the big winner in this is Monsanto. Monsanto is also our genetic food people, which is fantastic. We can all buy our seeds from Monsanto because to pay for it it's a very slippery slope. We like genetic foods because we can feed more people. They can genetically modify the food and we can grow more food per acre and so it's fantastic. The unfortunate thing is we're genetically modifying the food. And what happens is because they have to pay for the research, they can't sell you a they can't sell you a seed, you know, a bunch of seeds for corn and then have that corn go reseed itself. They sterilize it and so it doesn't reseed. So you always have to buy your corn from Monsanto or whoever is producing this. You can't reseed any of it.

Now, for anybody who actually listened to the birds and the bees and not talking about sex but actually the job of the birds and the bees is cross pollenation. When you cross pollenate something that has been sterilized, you taint it. So now your regular corn, your heirloom corn, God's corn, not Monsanto's corn is being cross pollenated and it is going sterile. So you have no food diversity. This is why they put the seeds in the seed vault.

You know, I brought this up at where was I just I think this was at the Thanksgiving table. I'm such a drag. And most of the people around the table didn't know about the seed vault. The seed vault is up in the Arctic Circle. What country is it in? Do you know?

STU: Norway?

GLENN: Norway? It's up in the Arctic Circle. I mean, it's up in the middle of nowhere. And it is deep underground in the ice. And every country had to bring heirloom seeds. We brought apple seeds and corn and everything else. Anything that was heirloom and we put it and we buried it under the polar icecap. And the reason why we did it is because in case there's something catastrophic. Bullcrap in case there's something catastrophic. In case what we're doing to the food right now is wrong. And we wipe out our food supply. At least we'll have some place, some heirloom seeds where we can all play Johnny Appleseed and restart the planet. I mean, just, I find it very interesting that nobody seems to have a concern at all that the people John Holdren, our science czar, who believes in the sterilization of man. You have so many people running around this White House and around the circle of power now that believe that man is a virus that is killing the planet. You have Monsanto, a company that is making genetically modified seeds that sterilize our food supply, our natural food supply. We don't know what we're doing with food. You really think we're at the point to where we're competent enough to modify our food? And these are the people behind the new farm safety bill. All these people that believe that humans are a disease, the planet is being destroyed by man, that we should reduce the surplus population, that we should what was the latest thing on global warming today? That, out in Cancun? That the government is like, we're going to pass this and if it doesn't, if it doesn't pass, we'll go around the Senate anyway. There's other ways to get this done. This is the new Kyoto Treaty and it's happening in Cancun, and they are not worried about it. It passes, it doesn't pass, they will get it done. Those are the White House words. Because it's just too important not to do.

So what is their plan? Their plan is industrialization in the United States must stop. It must not grow. So the rest of the world can catch up with it. What are we, in a timeout box all of a sudden? What do you mean the United States must not grow? You can't just arrest an economy. You can't just stop it. It doesn't just go into hibernation. It dies. These people are playing games with human lives. And they think they're better. They think they know. That's all a grand experiment to them. They'll be fine. Oh, in the end it will all be good for humankind. The ends justify the means.

I don't understand how you can have so many people surrounding this president and this administration that believe in horrific things, horrific things. And we give them access to our food supply! All in the name of safety, of course. At best this will make our food costs go up. At best. At best your meat will be worth more. You will eat less meat. It's by design. Cass Sunstein. He wants you to eat less meat.

You know what? When these people in Washington D.C., when the first lady can get her husband to stop smoking, when the first lady can get her husband who the doctor says should change his diet because his cholesterol is too high, when she can get his cholesterol under control and his smoking to stop, she can start lecturing me and my children about the way we're living our lives. At best this will make your food increase in price, quickly. At worst it's a horror show. The way it always ends, in giant progressive governments. It always ends in starvation. Always. But this is their step in that grand experiment that always ends the same way. Why people won't, you know, just look at the people and say, you know what? I don't know if we know what we're doing with food yet. I don't like the fact that we're genetically modifying everything. Now I don't like the fact that Monsanto is the big winner in this and they are passing this just overnight. You've got people in this administration that believe people are a virus, reduce the surplus population, population is a problem. I don't know why people won't at least consider preparing for, you know, what does George Soros call it? Unforeseen circumstances. Hmmm.

Gang, God is involved and he doesn't lose. But I think things are going to change because they cannot go. They cannot continue to go this way. They can't. You're going against too many of the laws of nature. Nature's God and nature's laws. It's what our founders talked about. It's natural law. And when man gets out of the flow of natural law, natural law, nature's god, will reset it. It's going to be fine but it's going to be reset. You can't take anything with you on the reset. But you can take knowledge. You can take your skills and your knowledge and your children.

This Thursday I'm doing a special on Broke. It's the book that we wrote and I'm doing it in movie theatres. It's a town hall meeting. And I want to talk to you about the solutions, not just the problems. But I want to tell you about history and I want to tell you about the solutions that are available. And if people laugh at you or make fun of you, that's fine. I don't really care. You've got to get to the point of acceptance. Everybody else can be angry, they can be in denial, they can be in depression. You need to get your place to acceptance that the world is going to change. Great. It's an opportunity for me to strengthen my family. It's an opportunity to set our country straight. That, I guarantee you, is the way the radicals are looking at it. It is an opportunity to take this country and put it in a position to where they want it and they will control it. You've got to get out of denial, you've got to get out of anger, you've got to get out of depression, you've got to get out of bargaining and you have to get into acceptance. The world is going to change. Now, how would our founders want us to reset it? What do we need to make sure in tough times our children will not forget? They barely know what freedom is. They have a distorted view of the free market system because it hasn't been free in a hundred years. We are the ones. We are the keepers of the flame. Protect the flame. Protect the flame.

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.
