The great Wile E. Coyote, ACME bomb scare of 2018

Nine suspicious packages and eight - well what do I call things - extremely ridiculous looking improvised explosive devices, or ERL IEDs, have been counted so far. The Clinton's, the Obama's, Eric Holder, John Brennan (care of CNN), Debbie Wasserman Schultz, George Soros, Maxine Waters and even Robert De Niro were all recipients of these ERL IEDs.

So first of all these "pipe bombs"... to get an accurate comparison you'd have to watch a few Warner Brothers Saturday morning cartoons to see anything even remotely close. Pipe bombs are usually made from steel piping, but these were constructed from PVC pipe. The reason steel is always used over PVC is because the entire purpose of the bomb is to utilize the steel shrapnel when it explodes. This attacker, who we'll give the codename of Wile E. Coyote, made his bomb out of... plastic! The devices also had protruding wires coming out of the PVC pipe with a big ridiculous looking digital timer taped to it. Again, this is not typical pipe bomb construction as all of the wires and the detonator are usually concealed inside the pipe.

So in other words, this device was the equivalent of Wile E. Coyote leaving eight overly large sticks of dynamite with a big alarm clock lashed to it with the words ACME bomb stamped on the side. Oh, and a big pile of bird seed next to it to attract the roadrunner.

And I didn't even mention the fact that a parody ISIS flag was taped to the device which is actually a right wing meme. And if you thought it couldn't get even more silly, the meme quotes Larry the Cable Guy.

None of these devices detonated. They had zero chance of ever making it through security screening, and Wile. E. Coyote must have known that. You think Hillary Clinton actually personally checks her mailbox everyday to see if her Amazon Prime order came in? You think George Soros does? Every person that has been sent one of these packages has mail screening, and these devices were designed not to kill, but to be detected, caught and seen. Wile E. Coyote wanted a media circus, and boy oh boy did he get one.

Now I'm not going to speculate who Wile E. really is. Is he a right wing nut or a left wing nut looking to change the narrative before the midterms… no one knows yet. But that's not stopping the left from jumping on this. No way… never let a crisis go to waste. By noon yesterday, Paul Waldman of the Washington Post already had an article out blaming Donald Trump:

Given what Trump has done and said, this was absolutely predictable. In fact, it's a wonder that it took this long. It's not just that Trump advocates violence against his political opponents — though he does. It's that everything about his rhetoric pushes his supporters in that direction…

When has the president actually called for violence? Calling the media Fake News is bad, but is that in any way equivalent to, oh I don't know, encouraging you're electorate to harass Republicans at their homes, restaurants or places of business? *Cough* Maxine Waters. Is it equivalent to declaring the end of civility? *Clears throat* Hillary Clinton. I could go on, but we all know the left's narrative that you heard yesterday, and will continue until the midterms, is complete bull.

And as far as the identity of Wile E. Coyote, for those of you in the mainstream media, it's best not to speculate.

And many of our friends in the left leaning main stream media were just utterly shocked that this kind of attack occurred. One person remarked how they'd never seen anything like this directed at one side of the spectrum. Seriously? I guess that's true if your memory doesn't go back as far as - oh I don't know - literally just a few weeks ago! Suspected ricin letters were just sent to the White House, James Mattis, FBI Director Christopher Wray, CIA Director Gina Haspel, Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson and Chief of Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson. Did they forget this just happened?!

And as far as the identity of Wile E. Coyote, for those of you in the mainstream media, it's best not to speculate. If you don't know… say you don't know. Do that and you might receive the unthinkable. Something you've lost long ago… a little credibility.

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

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.
