College campuses are turning into a shadow justice system

It's one thing to see the obvious brainwashing that occurs to college students throughout the country. It's another thing entirely to see empirical data proving that university administrations have actively worked against students. A new report from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) does just that.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) released its Spotlight on Due Process Report for 2018, and the results are dismal. FIRE surveyed "the top 53 universities in the country, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report," examining each school for their "investigative and punishing of offenses ranging from vandalism and housing violations to felonious acts of sexual assault," cases that, as the report notes, should be handled instead by actual law enforcement.

The report describes a widespread "shadow justice system," and 39 of those 53 institutions "do not presume the innocence of accused students." Fewer than a third of the schools "guarantee a meaningful hearing, where each party may see and hear the evidence being presented to fact-finders by the opposing party," and nearly half of the 53 schools do not require that fact-finders, "the institution's version of judge and/or jury" be impartial. Not a single policy that FIRE examined got an A grade, while 47 of the 53 institutions received a D or F grade from FIRE for at least one disciplinary policy.

Notably, Harvard and Yale — which have turned into beacons of social justice over the past few years — ranked extremely low.

If college administrations remain unchecked, they'll keep doing what they've been doing, building power and subjecting college students to a rogue justice system.

Unfortunately, data-filled academic reports can often go unnoticed, or misunderstood, especially as colleges turn to social sciences over hard science. So we need to pay attention when we hear universities described with phrases like "shadow justice system" from an organization like FIRE, which is completely nonpartisan, I can say that for sure because I've had Greg Lukianoff, the President of FIRE, here in studio for a podcast.

There's a lot at stake here. If college administrations remain unchecked, they'll keep doing what they've been doing, building power and subjecting college students to a rogue justice system.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
