Romney 2012: Not a communist, doesn't appoint radical Islamists

Glenn may have found one more tool you can use to get excited to vote for Mitt Romney. Not only is Mitt Romney not a communist, he’s also (most likely) not going to appoint any members of the Muslim Brotherhood!

Now, before you get cenacle because there are only two big reasons so far to excite the base behind Mitt Romney, remember, these are two REALLY big platforms.

1. Not a communist

2. Doesn’t appoint people associated with terrorist organizations

Those are pretty key standards, right?

Okay, maybe the bar is a little low, but when your opponent is actually appointing members of the Muslim Brotherhood, it’s pretty important to have a candidate that is strong on this. Pat and Glenn played an audio clip of Mitt Romney in 2007 on the radio show this morning that showed, not only is Romney strong on this issue, he may even be ahead of the curve.

This is what Romney had to say:

“Of course we get Osama Bin Laden and track him wherever he has to go and make sure he pays for the outrage he exacted on America. We'll move everything to get him. But I don't want to buy into the democratic pitch that this is all about one person: Osama Bin Laden. Because after we get him, there's going to be another and another. This is about Shia and Sunni. This is about Hezbollah and Hamas and Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

This is a worldwide jihadist effort to try and cause the collapse of all moderate Islamic governments and replace them with a Caliphate. They ultimately want to bring down the United States of America. This is a global effort we're going to have to lead to overcome this jihadist effort. It's more than Osama Bin Laden.”

“I think I’m in love with him,” Glenn joked after hearing the audio.

“I’m having a moment of pride,” Stu added. “I'm having Romney pride.”

“That was a seriously good moment for him,” said Pat.

Glenn did point out that the audio was five years old, but it was still a good moment.

“In a way I think that’s tougher,” Stu said. “Isn’t it tougher? It’s trendy now to talk about the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Glenn pointed out that it may not exactly be “trendy” to talk about the Muslim Brotherhood, but it does put him ahead of the curve. A large majority of Americans had probably never heard of the Muslim Brotherhood back in 2007. “He knows what's going on,” Glenn added.

Glenn told listeners that he was asked the question, “What do you think Romney will do about Iran?”

“I don't know, but I know he won't throw Israel under the bus,” he said. “And I know he's not going to appoint Muslim Brotherhood to the Department of Homeland Security.”

“In fairness on Iran, what will anybody do?” Pat asked.

Pat explained that he and Glenn recently spoke with a military guy who basically told them there wasn’t much that anyone could do.

While it may be concerning that there really doesn’t seem to be much we can do at this point about Iran, there is at some comfort in knowing that, if Romney wins, he at least won’t be appointing their allies to positions that are responsible for our national defense.

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."
