Can Michele Bachmann win?

On radio this morning, Glenn interviewed Michele Bachmann, the candidate that many felt performed the best in last night’s GOP debate. Not only did she answer with confidence and clarity, she also officially declared her candidacy.

Glenn welcomed her to the program and asked her what she was most excited about following her strong showing on TV.

“I think I was the most excited about, the headline this morning, the national journal paper said the debate winner was the Tea Party. And I think that made me happier than anything because that's the voice that you have given voice to for years now and that's the voice that people are recognizing needed to be heard in the halls of Congress, and it has been heard. And that's the voice that I want to take to the White House as President of the United States,” she said.

“What was the thing that you felt needed to be said that wasn't said, or the question that needed to be asked that wasn't asked?” Glenn asked.

“Well, one thing that you didn't see on camera is that I was like the kid in class that has their hand up all the time and maybe it was good that that wasn't on the camera. But I wanted to weigh in on so many those issues, and one of them had to do with Medicare. Because right now we're hearing President Obama demagogue against Republicans that are actually trying to save Medicare and deal with it and get it into a fiscally sane way so that senior citizens have their needs met so we don't bankrupt the country,” she said.

“President Obama, I was at the White House with him about two weeks ago and he was asked three times what his Medicare plan was. He says he's not planning to do a plan to save Medicare. So either his plan is bankruptcy, which I know he would say that's not true. His real plan that I wanted the American people to know is that Medicare is going away under Obama. He hasn't told senior citizens this, but he's going to roll senior continues into ObamaCare and that's where this IPAB board, 15 unelected bureaucrats, will be the ones to say no basically to senior citizens about their healthcare and what they are going to get. So as if it wasn't bad enough for the president to take away 500 billion out of Medicare for seniors just when we're getting more seniors, he's also going to pull the rug out from under them by just doing away with Medicare and forcing them into ObamaCare where this unelected board will be saying no to their medical procedures. The American people don't know that. Obama hasn't told them. He wants to make the Republicans the boogeyman on Medicare but actually he's the one that's content to see it go away.”

The topic then shifted to Libya, a topic she tackled during the debate as well. She said, “When it comes to committing our brave men and women to harm's way, you have to have satisfied whether there was a threat against the United States, whether there was an attack against the United States, and whether there's a vital American national interest. Even Defense Secretary Gates testified before congress there was no recognizable national vital interest in Libya. He was not able to articulate a military goal in Libya.”

She added, “We don't know who the opposition forces are that we're helping. All indications show that there are people who are affiliated with Al Qaeda of North Africa and that also make up the bulk of the people who killed our soldiers in Iraq. So what my question is, what possible American interest could be benefitted by us enabling a stronghold for Al Qaeda of North Africa and what's worse, in Libya, to give them that stronghold? They would also then have access to the oil revenues in Libya and that would be able to sustain global terrorism. It is one of the most reckless, foolish actions this president has taken.”

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."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
