Another amazing "coincidence"

Well, it seems that Barack Obama forgot to look backwards before looking at “forward” as his new campaign slogan. According to the Washington Times, somehow President Obama missed the rich association the term “forward” has with European Marxism throughout history.

“What a bizarre coincidence,” Glenn said sarcastically. “Apparently many communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name forward. The word ‘forward’ carries a special meaning in the socialist political terminology. It had been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left wing newspapers and publications. The slogan forward reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals – that their movements reflected the march of history which would move forward past capitalism into socialism and communism.”

Pat sarcastically joked about the odds that the Obama campaign would find itself using a Marxist or communist buzzword as its campaign slogan. He noted that this is just like the video he did called ‘The Road We’ve Traveled,’ which was just like The Road We’re Traveling.

Glenn pointed out that The Road We’re Traveling was written by the guy who named The New Deal. He described ‘political system x,’ which he said some call communism or fascism, as a utopian form of government the road we are on now is leading us towards.

The Washington Time didn’t even look backwards far enough, Glenn explained. “They missed Mao’s forward.”

“The Great Leap Forward?” Stu questioned jokingly.

The Great Leap Forward was the period between 1958 and 1962, also known as the Five Year Plan, where around 40 to 45 million Chinese people were killed under Mao’s rule. Rural and farming communities during this “Great Leap Forward” were seen as mere digits, and crimes like stealing something as small as a potato, even by a child, often resulted in being tied and up and tossed into a pond.

“Are you saying this administration would tie up children and throw them in a pond?” Glenn jokingly asked Stu.

“No,” he answered. “This is just a hapless mistake.”

“Look, you do have Ezekiel Emanuel saying that if you have a child with terminal cancer that you can euthanize them, but he never said you could just tie them up and toss them in a pond,” Glenn mocked.

“Vladimir Lenin, founded the publication Vpered, which is the Russian word for Forward,” Pat noted.

“Yeah, well, Marx and Engels also published a magazine in Germany called Forward,” Glenn added.

Stu pointed out one of the most unlucky coincidences of them all. A news organization that has met with this administration multiple times, and has been accused of basically being a branch of the White House, was pitching a new slogan all last year called “Lean Forward.”

This new campaign ad would probably be really effective if it wasn't pitching a term used by communist and marxists responsible for the deaths of millions of people around the world …oops.

Just another amazing coincidence brought to you by the Obama Administration.

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."
