Glenn Beck: Miracles in Wilmington




America's First Christmas now available on the Insider Extreme


Did you miss or do you want to see it again? The full archive for America's First Christmas is now available on the Insider Extreme...

These guys yesterday did three, three wildly different shows yesterday. The TV show was just magic. It was just magic. I don't know if you -- I don't know if you saw it, but the show last night was about -- the show, television show was about miracles and there were three miracles I think that happened. You know, I saw in the press this morning that the miracles were, they quoted me as saying -- which I didn't say -- something like the miracle is the amount of people that came. The miracle was how many people went Christmas shopping there. I'm like, did you even watch the show?

There is a -- there is a company that is correcting people's hearing, and I don't mean like with a hearing aid or anything else. I had these two wonderful women in my office on, I think it was Monday. Did we leave on Monday? Yeah. It was on Monday right before I went on the plane. And they were in my office and they had both had their hearing restored, not enhanced. Restored. And it's an incredible piece of hardware. I mean, it's just, it's amazing. In America. Only from America. And they're sitting in the office and this one woman is talking to me about how she would always look to other people. She would always look for other people's reactions because she was deaf and she only had about 30% of her hearing, I think, and she was in crowds, she just couldn't hear. Just, she was always bluffing. And she just told this story about how, you know, she's this beautiful, beautiful woman and how she used to have, you know, these hearing aids in high school and I -- and she's talking the story -- telling the story, I thought, how many, how many guys wouldn't have dated her because, you know, she had the hearing aids. "Oh, yeah, she's the one with the hearing aids," or whatever. She talked about how in her high school and her college she was bluffing and she so desperately wanted to be one thing and had to change her major because she couldn't, she couldn't hear. She just couldn't hear in this classroom. And the professor was a guy who actually had experience. So he wasn't working out of the textbook. So you had to listen to him. She said, I couldn't hear him. She said, so I had to, I had to leave my dream job. And she said, now that I was -- then I was, you know, stuck in this dead-end job and, oh, it is just heartbreaking. And she got married and she had kids and then she had this device implanted a few years ago when they were just beginning to test it, and you put it in and then it has to heal for eight months and it's actual restoration of hearing, not like a cochlear implant. And the amazing thing is, she said when they turned it on eight months later, she said, I heard the crispness of the air conditioner. I had never heard it before. And she just described the sound of air to me. And think all the things that we take for granted. She gets into the car and, she said, I heard my child's voice for the first time: Mommy, did they fix your ears? And the way she told this story, I mean, everybody in the office was crying. I get to Wilmington, Ohio, and what were there? About 2,000 people in line at the bookstore, which, because I was told last night before we got on the plane, because of our appearance in Wilmington, Ohio and the people that showed up just at the bookstore, the bookstore has hired three people that they have laid off. Three people now are going back to work at this bookstore. I just think that's great. Thank you for coming.

In that crowd there were, let's see, a mom, a dad, and this son. And he was about, probably 7 or 8. And he had hearing aids. And I was talking to the parents and I asked him a question, and he looked right directly up to them because I could tell that he couldn't hear me. After hearing this story on Monday from these two women, I could -- I just, I knew what he was feeling. And there was Miracle Number 1.

Here I am, I know this technology exists. I know this family probably doesn't know about this technology and I just don't think they could afford it. It's $30,000 an ear. And we can. And I looked at them and I thought, that is not a coincidence that they were sitting in my office on Monday and I know about this and now I see him, and I know we can restore his hearing. So I pulled them off to the side, and during the television show -- they didn't know this, but during the television show, we brought them up. And when I come back from vacation, I'm bringing them in to meet with the doctors. I want to see if there's a way we can restore his hearing, we're going to do it. Just such a cool, cool thing. And there were four miracles, at least four miracles that I personally witnessed yesterday. It was such a great trip out to Wilmington, Ohio, so great.

When I got off stage somebody told me that, again on a handshake, business comes to town from North Carolina. They had heard us talking about Wilmington and they wanted to check it out. They have been up for the last week and they had a handshake deal last night that they were going to hire between 25 and 50 people out of Wilmington, Ohio. They heard us talk about it. They were going to hire these people and expand their business, and they decided to do it in Wilmington because they heard us talk about it and they thought, wow, this sounds like a great community. They went up to check it for themselves and they liked the way the people did business there, all on a handshake. I mean, it was just really fantastic. If you want to help this town out, still the Wilmingtongeneralstore.com still has all of the shops and stuff that you can go and buy something from. These people work their brains out. I didn't get a chance to meet this family that is living in a -- sharing a one-room apartment with another family and they are so destitute that they go to the Wal-Mart to warm up, and they opened up a storefront yesterday and they were selling anything they could get their hands on, used records and everything else. George Lange went into their store and he took a bunch of pictures of them. We'll have to show them to you. It's just amazing, amazing people that did whatever they could to be able to find something of value that maybe somebody would want for Christmas. Instead of just standing there wanting a handout. Wilmington, Ohio. Thank you. Thank you for giving us the Christmas spirit. Thank you for showing us the way out.

 

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.

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.
