Typical: Big Government trying to cut off one of the few energy life lines left

With everything going on in the world, it's surprising that our energy costs haven't started to skyrocket. What's saving us from rising costs? Fracking! But, of course, the EPA and big government are doing all they can kill this industry. Surprised? You shouldn't be. Glenn explained on radio this morning.

"I read something amazing last night on why we are paying so little for our energy costs.  With everything that is going on, why has our electricity bill not skyrocketed more than it already has?  The answer is fracking.  Fracking is so incredibly important to the United States of America, especially with everything else that is happening in our country.  When they're taking apart energy left and the right, the only thing that has saved us is natural gas.  The natural gas industry has pulled off a miracle.  You want to talk about divine providence, here it is:  Natural gas and fracking," Glenn said.

"Fracking unleashes natural gas in untold units.  We had no idea how much energy we really sat on.  We all guessed that we were an energy leader in the rest -- for the rest of the world, but it's absolutely true."

Glenn explained that when entrepreneurs first started fracking, they expected to reduce costs by about a third and as a result generate more natural gas that they could sell a lot of for a better price.

"They unleashed much more than they ever thought possible and it made the price of natural gas plummet to where it's almost free.  They can't pump it out of the ground.  They can't get -- they can't afford to do it.  Now these smaller companies are starting to go under because they invested in all of this infrastructure and because the price of natural gas is so low, they can't pay the mortgage payments on all of their infrastructure.  Some of them are going out of business.  Others are just starting to turn everything down, turn the pumps down, because they can't afford to pump it.  And so now our natural gas prices are expected to rise.  They have to," Glenn said.

"Here is American ingenuity and entrepreneurs showing you how to find clean and plentiful energy and to do it not with the government, in spite of the government and look what's happened."

"Now the government, of course, can't help them.  In fact, states are trying to stop fracking.  The EPA is after everybody now.  Anybody who's trying to produce energy, fracking is dangerous.  Is it, really?  Here's the additional problem:  The coal industry, which is -- the Obama administration is trying to put out of business, a lot of them took their coal fire plants and converted them over to natural gas-fired plants, knowing that fracking had just changed the game entirely, but now that natural gas has to necessarily skyrocket, what do we do with the coal fire plants that are no longer coal fire plants, they're natural gas plants?"

Glenn explained that EPA Region 1 Administrator Curt Spalding had even been caught admitting how Obama's policies are killing whole communities!

Spalding was caught on tape saying:

But know right now, we are, we are struggling. We are struggling because we are trying to do our jobs. Lisa Jackson has put forth a very powerful message to the country. Just two days ago, the decision on greenhouse gas performance standard and saying basically gas plants are the performance standard which means if you want to build a coal plant you got a big problem. That was a huge decision. You can’t imagine how tough that was. Because you got to remember if you go to West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and all those places, you have coal communities who depend on coal. And to say that we just think those communities should just go away, we can’t do that. But she had to do what the law and policy suggested. And it’s painful. It’s painful every step of the way.

"I want you to understand what he just said," Glenn said, "He's talking about an actual community, towns.  You just have to go away."

"Yeah, but he's the victim," Pat joked. " I'm destroying your life completely and it really hurts me to do that.  Oh, I'm in pain!  Don't you people understand my pain?!  Yes, you're without a home and a community.  I had to tell you that!  I hurt.  Okay?!"

"This is not just shutting down an industry.  This is stomping out the entire community," Glenn said.

Glenn heavily criticized the media for not covering this story and blamed it on a bias against the rural communities, and warned that if the Obama administration and the EPA are successful at killing energy industries that use fossil fuels, the impact will be irreversible.

"This isn't something like you make this mistake and go, 'Oh, man, we shut down the coal industry.  That was a mistake.  You know what?  Call them back up and tell them we're going to buy some more coal'."

"Wake your neighbors up.  Another four years of this is going to kill us.  It's going to absolutely kill us," he said."

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."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
