Glenn interviews Brad Meltzer

Glenn interviewed author Brad Meltzer in the studio this morning about his new book, "The Inner Circle", and some of the fascinating research he did along the way. Watch the video above for more. Or check out highlights from Brad below:

" You know, the National Archives when I went there, I found out that they have a secret cave.  All over the country they have caves where they store documents because the greatest thing that we need to store our great documents is not space.  We need temperature.  We need the temperature to be cool.  So it's an issue of funding.  And the way they can afford it is they bury it deep down in these underground caves.  I said I want to go to these caves, show me these caves.  And so I went out to Borders, Pennsylvania and there are old caves and old gold mines and mines that are out there that have been turned into cave storage sites.  And as I described it at the end of The Inner Circle is exactly how it is in real life."

"And then I heard this amazing story about Ronald Reagan.  Ronald Reagan in his last moments in the White House, he writes a letter, a secret letter and it says, don't let the turkeys get you down.  And then he draws a picture of a turkey.  And he puts the letter into the desk of the Oval Office and he leaves it for George H. W. Bush.  And then when Bush leaves office, he leaves a letter for Bill Clinton who then writes his own letter and leaves one for George W. Bush who leaves one for Obama.  It's the greatest private tradition of the modern presidency. "

" Here's the best part.  And [George H W Bush] says, listen, he says, I never felt the loneliness some presidents have described.  He said ‑‑ and this is fascinating, especially in today's times.  There will be very tough times made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair.  I'm not a very good one to give advice but just don't let the critics discourage you or push you off course.  Of all the things he could talk about in this letter, right, of national security, of the environment.  He basically talks about critics and criticism.  This is the thing that sticks in the president's mind when he's in office.  And he says ‑‑ and I'm amazed by this.  He says, you will be our president when you read this note.  I wish you well, I wish your family well.  Your successes now is our country's success.  And I love this ending.  He says, I am rooting hard for you, which is just such, you know, typical George Bush. "

"I realized he did send me the greatest secret of the U.S. presidency.  And he sent me the reminder that we are run by our own.  Right?  Whether we like it or not, whether we put them up on pedestals or down in ditches, the presidents of the United States, whoever they are, are still us.  They are regular people."

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."
