Caller turns away from cynicism in emotional conversation with Glenn

Glenn has a very touching phone call from a listener today, and she explained to Glenn how she went from a cynic to a believer on radio today.

"I have been following you for many, many years, since you were really hilarious back in the day," she said. "And along the way as you started getting more serious, I kind of turned on you.  You know, when you say my own audience has turned on me, when you said that a few weeks ago or days ago, I was like, yeah, that's me, you know."

"Not like in a savage 'I hate Glenn Beck' kind of way.  Kind of like, okay, here comes another book, you know, how many books are you going to put out, you know.  How many dollars do you want to make kind of way."

She described how she would meet new fans who were just discovering Glenn, and warned them that he would eventually disappoint them along the way. "You know, I'm a cynic.  The world I lived in, live in has taught me not to believe in people.  And it was easier to not believe and to expect to be disappointed than to put it out there and have the possibility of getting your toes stepped on again, you know?  You get stepped on so many times in life."

What made her change her mind?

"I watched the making of the GBTV and I was just, I was touched.  I was moved, you know.  You're going out into towns and creating a means for them to survive and a means for them to pull together and rescue themselves, and it just struck me that, how much you really believe in what you're doing and what you're saying.  It's not ‑‑ it's not what I thought it was.  It's not, you know, some grand show for another dollar or, you know, some kind of media empire or, you know, to be known in history books.  And I just, you know, I'm sorry.  I don't know you, but I feel like I know you because I've listened to you for so many years, and I don't think I've been fair.

"And the other thing that I wanted to tell you and then I'll get off the phone, and you can take this how you want it.  I'm not a perfect person, but I have my gifts and talents like everybody else and I just, I just feel like I ought to tell you that your reward is great, Glenn. Your reward is really great."

Glenn was taken aback by the call, and said it was one of the more meaningful conversations he had with a listener in a while. Why? Because it touches on where he is moving over the next few months and years. "That is where my heart is, and it is from that belief of Wilmington, that Americans are good; they just need the path. They just need to see a standard. They need to see something up on a hill. It's the shining city on the hill. That if they can see it, they will do it. If they can see it and they see others moving in that direction, they will do it. And I know we can pull ourselves out of it. I know who we are, and I know all the stumbling blocks as well."

"When I said to you a year ago, or at the beginning of this year, I'm tired of waiting around for somebody else, it is exactly like Israel. Israel's going to cost anywhere from $5 to $10 million to do. I don't have the money, but we're doing it. And I'm moving forward on divine providence. I believe in the protection of divine providence. What needs to be done will be done, and the money will come."

And Glenn said the same thing would happen with the charity project he is moving forward on. " I know it will happen. And we will create jobs. And we will turn one town around. And then that will inspire others. And we'll turn another town around, and another and another and another. You will not be able to extinguish the free enterprise. You will not be able to extinguish the idea that man can make his own way. You will not be able to take away man's freedom for long because it is not freedom that belongs to man. It is His freedom. Nobody loses against him. Nobody. He wins every single time. I trust divine providence."

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."
