Muslim Brotherhood win in Egypt, military simultaneously seizes power

Not many people saw this one coming (unless you listen to Glenn). As the media gushed during the Arab Spring, few bothered to think about the unintended consequences. This is the worst case scenario - the Brotherhood win the election but the military seizes power. Pretty much a lose lose scenario.

"The Muslim Brotherhood's candidate has claimed victory now. His party is now in control in Egypt. Now at least you might be saying, 'Well, that's, you know, that's great. At least the military won't be in control.' And that's true. Now it's just an Islamic extremist group that's in control," Glenn said.

Many of the critics of Mubarak's regime felt that he was supported by military power, and that the winner of yesterday's election would be the first democratically elected leader.

The Blaze reported "The Muslim Brotherhood has declared that its candidate, Mohammed Morsi, won Egypt’s presidential election" last night. "The declaration was based on returns the Brotherhood reported from 95 percent of the more than 13,000 polling stations nationwide. The returns showed Morsi with 52 percent of the vote, his opponent former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq with 48 percent. A million votes separated the two, which a Brotherhood spokesman said the remaining votes could not overcome the difference for Shafiq."

"I'm sure it's all going to work out," he joked. "This might be a case where the least pessimistic wasn't pessimistic enough."

"Now Bill (Kristol), what I said about this so‑called Arab Spring, if you'll remember, was that it was extremely dangerous. Extremely dangerous that it could lead to an Islamic Caliphate. I didn't say that elections would never be held. I said that we should be very concerned about what's taking place there because it could be very bad for the United States and Israel. Yes, the other guy was closely tied to Mubarak and the military, and people were rightly troubled that if Ahmed Shafik would win, it would be more of the same. But what do we have now? Definitely not more of the same. Now we have a battle for power between the military and a new Islamic regime that wants a Caliphate with its headquarters based right there with chaos, not to be confused with control. With chaos in Jerusalem. By the way, it kind of goes hand in hand with the destruction of Israel, but who's counting at this point?"

Despite winning the election, the military has made moves to retain their leadership and control in Egypt.

The Blaze reported on the struggle between the Muslim Brotherhood and the military, saying, "As vote counting began in Egypt’s election for the successor to Hosni Mubarak, the ruling military issued an interim constitution Sunday that handed themselves the lion’s share of power over the new president, enshrining their hold on the state and sharpening the possibility of confrontation with the Muslim Brotherhood."

"With parliament dissolved and martial law effectively in force, the generals made themselves the country’s lawmakers, gave themselves control over the budget and will determine who writes the permanent constitution that will define the country’s future," the news site continued.

"Instead of pulling off, as Bill Kristol said, a democratic peaceful removal of a dictator, the removal wasn't democratic and it wasn't all that peaceful. Then he said we have pretty seemingly stable situation. 'Seemingly' and 'pretty' being the operable words," he added.

"What we have then, Bill, is an absolute mess, and here's the good news: It's been a year since your antiprophetic message and we can see pretty clear who was sadly, horrifically, possibly to the peril of our own countrymen, mistaken. But congratulations. Congratulations. You're doing a great job. And there's no ‑‑ there's no chance of you stopping anytime soon."

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!"

While the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair.

But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands. There is an urgent need to focus on the ongoing Senate races. Glenn has warned us of the Left's radical plans should they sweep this election, and the wolves are already descending on Georgia.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn reveals the desperate measures they're taking to win two Georgia runoff races in January and claim the Senate. Senator Mike Lee joins to warn what will happen to the country if Chuck Schumer becomes Senate majority leader and why we must have a transparent process so that Americans can trust the final count.

Later, Glenn reveals a new project for Americans who are not ready to roll over and let the Marxists win the battle for our country.
