Anthony Weiner: even worse than portrayed

Anthony Weiner stepped down from his office yesterday, and Glenn was more than happy to see him go off into obscurity. But what did Glenn learn from Weiner over the years? Quite a bit as it turned out.

“We're going to have to do without, without one of the most unlikable figures in American political history.  Remember, there is a guy who was capable of being completely unlikable.  Even when he was arguing for healthcare, for 9/11 responders, he was unlikable,” Glenn said.

While Weiner proved himself to be exceptionally arrogant, smarmy, and condescending but it was his ability to lie that put him in a league of his own among the politicians in Washington, DC.

“ He could say anything, look and sound the exact same way.  He could lie to your face, whether you were his wife, his Twitter pic receiver, his constituent, or his enemy, he could do it and believe it.  It didn't matter if he was lying about Goldline or healthcare or his own wiener shots.”

Long time listeners and viewers will remember that Weiner tried to use all of his congressional powers to take down Glenn and his sponsor, Goldline. Weiner said, “But whether it's illegal for Glenn Beck to do it, probably not.  I certainly think it's unethical for them to be having a commentary program that talks about the sky is falling and then those very same commentators are paid advertisers for companies like Goldline.  Glenn Beck and FOX News and others, they should be ashamed of them because frankly, these companies -- it has now been well documented -- are rip offs.”

Glenn pointed out this morning, however, that anyone who listened to Weiner ended up losing out on a lot of money. “ Since that statement, my investment, my personal investment in Goldline, is up 40%.  That's in one year.  What a rip off it has turned out to be.  At the exact same time he was flexing naked in the congressional mirror and sending pictures to girls half his age, he was trying to destroy my business and the business of my clients with lies, half truths, and smears.  He knew that he was lying.  In his congressional report, he cited commentators on message boards as evidence against Goldline, even while the Better Business Bureau was giving them an A plus rating and the exact consumer report, the exact consumer reporting site that he was referring to was saying you can be completely confident, safe and secure, when doing business with Goldline.  Got it?  He's citing it and that's what it says.”

But what was scariest about Weiner was his ability to simultaneously lie while at the same time feeding his own narcissism. “In the middle of a controversy that could crush his career, his family and his marriage, his wife, by the way, is pregnant, he was psychotically giving back-handed compliments to the size of his own manhood on national television, while acting like he's being self-deprecating.  It is a loop of mental gymnastics only achieved by the mental patients and serial killers we normally lock up,” Glenn said.

“I want you to know, this is a man who tried to destroy my business.  He used the full weight and power of the United States Congress to destroy my business.  I don't feel bad for him.  He did this to himself,” Glenn explained.

Ultimately, however, it was Weiner’s attacks on Glenn that inspired him to start building a news and information system based around the truth. “He's not an enemy of mine.  He's an enemy of the truth.  In many ways Weiner inspired The Blaze, because I found hope that the truth will set you free and if you're not standing within the truth, it will burn your life to the ground.  That blaze is true and I testify to its truth today.  The truth has no agenda.  When you realize that, you'll be able to do what I did, let go, let go in the faith and the firm reliance of divine providence.”

“But we should learn something else, that when you stand for the truth, when you don't let anger force you into stupidity, eventually the ship will right itself.  You just have to remain standing.  The people attacking you with lies will be buried under their own weight.  I believe in this.  It has been true for all of eternity in the past and all eternity in the future.  In a small way, in the time in all eternity, in a very small way, with a little man, even smaller than his stature, a little man named Weiner has proved that true.”

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."
