Tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr

Glenn started the radio show this morning with a tribute package to Martin Luther King, Jr. Watch the full video above and read Glenn's remarks below:

"For centuries man's freedom has been crushed, contained or at best discouraged, and sometimes in subtle ways.  In the days of Solomon, he decreed that man could learn too much, that one should not dig too deep, nor read too often saying that too much reading was the weariness of the flesh, that the search for knowledge was where Adam and Eve went wrong, thus proving that learning leads to man's downfall, or his sin.  St. Paul centuries later said the same thing.  1500, Francis Bacon wrote to the king trying to convince him that man could never learn too much, that knowledge did not somehow also contain the serpent, yet free thought continued to be squashed.  Immanuel Kant, the man who first described the Milky Way as a collection of suns in the fashion that we now know it, wrote in 1760 that there are many things that he believed that he would never have the courage to speak, but he would never speak the words that he didn't believe.  1760, our most precious freedom, the freedom of thought, had not yet been born.

Yet just a few years later on the other side of the globe sat a man alone in a hotel room.  His wife dying in bed hundreds of miles away from him as he scratched words on paper:  We find these truths to be self-evident.  That all men are created equal and have certain inalienable rights given to them by their creator.  Among them life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  I don't know if we really understand the impact of those words yet.  Man has never been as free to think as we are now.  The Chinese dissidents didn't make a statue of Lady Liberty in Tiananmen Square out of happenstance.  Americans changed the world.  Our freedom of thought allowed man to discover electricity, the light bulb, the car, the motion picture, the radio, the television, the computer, to put man on the moon.  We put a spacecraft on Mars.  It was in the American Century that the theory of relativity was conceived, leading Albert Einstein to say, the thing about America is the joyous, positive attitude to life.  The smile on the faces of the people is one of the greatest assets of the Americans.  He's friendly, self-confident, optimistic and without envy.

The American lives even more for his goals for the future.  Life for him is always becoming, never being.  His emphasis is laid on the "We" and never the "I."

So today as you're free to celebrate, relax, think, read and say anything, ask yourself this:  Are you still part of the "We" and not the "I"?  You know, when Jefferson first wrote those words, they were words of treason and certain execution.  But today, today let them echo through the land again as words of the American spirit and our hope, that we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.  And endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  And in support of this declaration with firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.  Happy birthday, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Free at last, free at last.  Thank God almighty, we're free at last."

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."
