Glenn responds to the tragedy in Arizona

The nation was shocked this weekend by Jared Lee Loughner’s attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords that left her in critical condition and six people dead, including a nine-year-old girl and a federal judge. Glenn joined the rest of the country in praying for a full recovery for the wounded and for peace and comfort for those who are grieving the loss of loved ones.

Glenn said, “My family and I have been praying for the Gifford family. I didn't, I didn't know her really. As you know, I don't follow the individual politicians. And we looked for anytime that we have said anything about her, and the only time we've ever brought her up is I used her as an example of someone with some political courage. I don't agree with her and her policies, but she was someone who came out and spoke her mind against her own party at one point, and I highlighted her as someone who had courage. We pray for her and her family and all those involved.”

Glenn was celebrating his anniversary with his wife on Saturday afternoon when he heard the news of the attack on Giffords. He recalled, “I was actually at Spider-Man when I got word and my wife and I, we were having our anniversary, and I wanted to make the day about my wife because she has put up with so much this year.”

During the show, one of Glenn’s security members turned to him and alerted him that there had been an attack on a Congresswoman. “About halfway through the performance, Matt [a member of Glenn’s security team] who is with me leans over and whispers in my ear, ‘I'm sorry, sir, but I'm told that you need to see this.’ I looked at his screen and all it said was, congresswoman shot in the head. Several may be dead. That's all I knew. I didn't know if it was Michele Bachmann, Nancy Pelosi. I didn't know who it was.”

Glenn had the same immediate reaction that many have in moments of tragedy; he wanted to make sure his family was safe. “I immediately closed my eyes, took a deep breath, and said, ‘Please make sure my children are secure.’ He said, ‘Already done, sir.’ I said, ‘Can you find out who was shot? What happened?’ He said, ‘Yes, sir.’ He got up. The other member of the detail then was now outside the door of the performance and the two of them stood now at the doorway watching me while trying to find out what was going on. My wife said, ‘What's happening? On our anniversary.’ I just squeezed her hand and I said, ‘Nothing, it's all -- everything's okay. Just watch.’ She knew.

Glenn said, “We must, we must look at the examples of Gandhi and Martin Luther King and Jesus Christ who, while everyone wanted violence, they stood against it. While the easy way was violence, they stood against it. They were outspoken. They had fiery words. They turned over the tables of the temple. But they were against violence. And in the end all three of them were killed. All three of them.

They thought, those at the time, that their message would be silenced by violence. Somebody violent thought they could stop them with violence. And in the real end, all three of those men won.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
