Marco Rubio: Is America Still An Exceptional Nation?

Senator Marco Rubio gave a great speech this morning that focused on ‘choices.’ Life is all about choices, and he shared the message that the future of our country is in our hands, the American people just have to de. America is at a crossroads and it’s time to make a choice between the option Obama is offering to the American people, that we are a nation of “haves and have-not’s” or the option of the American ideal that we are a nation of “haves and soon-to-haves”.

So, what is the conservative movement?

Senator Rubio defined it by saying, "we believe that the way prosperity is created is when people have the freedom and the opportunity to pursue their dreams.” Which he went on to compare to how small businesses get started in our country, and how they’ve been the engine of cities and towns throughout America. Rubio went on to discuss tax policy, the budget, and jobs, but where he seemed to really hit to the heart of the crowd was when he hit the topic of the American people.

“You have to be strong economically, you have to be strong militarily, but there’s one other area you have to be strong in—and that’s your people have to be strong. Because at the end of the day what makes our nation distinctive is our people. Our greatness does not derive from our government or from our laws, or from our president, or certainly not from our congress—the strength of our nation is from our people.”

This was the key message Florida Senator Marco Rubio shared with CPAC attendees this morning. Senator Rubio was one of the biggest speakers of the day, and one of the most powerful speeches so far—one that could have easily served as the closing keynote.

Senator Rubio brought up the recent attack on religious institutions, mainly the Catholic Church, that are being forced through a healthcare mandate to follow his ideas. The federal mandates are forcing our religious institutions to pay for things that their faith teaches them are wrong. Rubio stated,” you may not agree with what that religion believes, but that’s not the point. The point is that the first amendment still applies.” He went on to say that “the federal government does not have the power to make religious organizations pay for things they think is wrong.”

The senator went on to discuss how important it is that we stand up for our God given freedoms and rights. He used the example of the Nazis and other great evil’s in the world that would have won had it not been for the American people. He said the greatest example the world could have is “the American example.” What happens if that example no longer exists? “We should be grateful and thank god every night that he has placed us here in this nation at this time in history.”

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?

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.
