Is the White House using energy to collapse the system?

Is the White House using energy to collapse the system? That's the question that Glenn raised on radio today when reviewing some of the idiotic comments made by Energy Secretary Steven Chu. This is a guy who said that gas prices in the United States should be closer to the prices in Europe, and he has championed the development of green energy over exploring domestic oil.

Not long ago, Chu said he gave himself an "A-" when it came to his job performance. Then the other day, he was confronted in a hearing by House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa who asked him if that grade still applied when it came to gas prices.

"Well, the tools we have at our disposal are limited but I would say I would give myself a little higher in that since I became secretary of energy, I've been doing everything I can to get long‑term solutions," Chu told him.

As Glenn put it, that's like saying you do well at basketball because you are working to develop a new type of ball that isn't ready yet and may never work, but if it does it will automatically go from your hand to the net. Meanwhile, you are destroying all the regular basketballs. Ok, Glenn isn't that great at sports analogies - but essentially he's saying Chu is focused on developing future green energy (which may never come) rather than find ways to make energy prices lower now. In fact, he is only making things worse. hoe does he deserve an "A-"?

Make sense?

Glenn also noted that he is asking for more "tools", a comment that will get overlooked with inflated, self-congratulatory grade Chu gave himself.

"He wants more tools. So when it gets worse and worse and worse, he's going to be pushing for more tools. Look, I can help control the cost of gasoline. You just have to give me the tools to do it. You need price controls, I need rationing, I need whatever it is I need, but I need more tools to be able to effect that," Glenn explained.

Wow, that sounds scary.

Couple that with Obama's comments about how we "can't drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees at all times whether we're living in a desert or we're living in the tundra".

As Pat put it, the administration is trying to change our behavior and will nudge and push and eventually force us to do so.

"You change America. You change it by the behavior but you also are ‑‑ you're radically changing everything we've ever believed. You're changing us on what we can accomplish. If they get gasoline to be $5 and $6 a gallon, first of all, any time, any time you've had a spike in oil prices and a spike in gasoline, you have a recession or a depression because the market is not ‑ how are we built as a nation? How were we built? We were built with cheap energy. The reason why we could do things that others couldn't is because we always had cheap energy. So the entire system is built around that. So once you have $5, $6 a gallon gasoline, the system no longer works. This is a 'collapse the system' strategy. It's Cloward and Piven through energy, period," Glenn said.

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."
