Sleeping with Dictators

With all the chaos going on in Egypt right now, Glenn wondered out loud what he would do if he were President of the United States. What would he do if he inherited this problem, much in the same way the President Obama has. The radio crew discussed what has led Egypt up to this point and what would be the best possible outcomes.

“I've got to support Mubarak, probably, at this point. I mean, to keep the peace with Israel, it's kind of paramount and I also don't like the alternatives in Egypt. So, you know, you're looking at an Iranian situation, although I hear MSNBC commentators saying, there is a big difference here and this is a secular revolution. Ah-ha, yeah. That's why the Muslim Brotherhood is poised to take over the nation, because it's so secular. So, I don't know. At this point I think you almost have to support Mubarak,” Pat suggested.

Glenn agreed that the Muslim Brotherhood establishing control of Egypt would be dangerous for democracy and the Middle East.

“Here's just [The Muslim Brotehrhood’s] founding statements. The Brotherhood seeks to establish an Islamic caliphate spanning the entire Muslim world. It aspires to make Islamic Sharia law the soul basis of jurisprudence and governance. Towards this purpose encapsulated in The Brotherhood's militant credo God is our objective, Quran is constitution, and the prophet is our leader, struggle is our way and death for the sake of God is our highest aspiration,” Glenn read.

Despite their radical beliefs, Elbaradei, leader of the opposition in Egypt, has stated they are not a radical group and are as much a part of the Egypt political scene as the Marxists.

“I was driving home yesterday and I was thinking, Everything has been solvable up to this point. We can solve our deficit problem. Now, we're going to run into trouble because, as we solve that problem, people are going to have to be shut out of government services, but if we have our values and principles together and if we focus on faith, hope, and charity, we can help each other through it,” Glenn said.

But Glenn said that there are also going to be problems, like Egypt, which are so big they seem unsolvable, and the only solutions involve sacrificing principles. Essentially, you’ll be presented with a false solution, where you have to choose the lesser of two evils. “The false solution here is that if you don't have one, you're going to have the other and so you have to pick -- you have to pick, you know, Mubarak,” Glenn said.

“What we've done is we have started this pattern and, believe it or not, we started it with Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, to where we took these dictators and we said it's better for us and it's really better for the whole world or the whole region if we just get in bed with these dictators and we started the idea that, well, it's better than the alternative. Why is it better than the alternative?” Glenn asked.

“Well, for the last 40 years, we were in bed with Mubarak and they said to us at the time you have to get into bed with Mubarak. Otherwise, it's going to end in Islamic regime. Well, here we are again. Nothing's changed. Nothing's gotten better. The only thing that has changed is our image has decayed and our values are gone because now the people in Egypt hate our guts because we say we're for peace and we say the Israelis aren't bad people and we aren't bad people. Well, why would they believe us?”

Glenn said Americans are making the same mistakes in making choices between our own leaders, as we are told to vote for one person because at least they won’t be as bad as another. “You've got to vote for this person, otherwise, you're going to get that person. And we've said, I don't want either of them and look where we are. I mean, we're doing the same thing in everything. We're making a choice between bad or worse. Why?”

Glenn said the real solutions involve making commitments to one another to stay true to our principles. “

With firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor. A lot of people will roll their eyes and say that's not a solution. I think it is,” he concluded.

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."
