321-217: Why Glenn thinks Romney will have a decisive victory on Tuesday

Will Romney have a decisive victory next Tuesday? Many prominent Republicans and pundits are starting to present their theories on how Romney will end up with more than 300 electoral college votes. Does Glenn agree? He presented his own theory on radio this morning that showed Romney winning 321-217 over President Obama.

"What I asked Stu yesterday on the program was 'Tell me about Wisconsin'. Wisconsin, Walker won by 9. But up until the very last couple of days, he was only up by 3. And I think like a week before or two weeks before, he was losing. And I remember it being a dead heat or him being close to losing and I remember thinking, 'Oh, my gosh.'"

"And I remember talking to the guys at Freedom Works and they were like, "We got this one. We got it. I'm telling you we got it." They know the grassroots and they are one of the only people that do know the grassroots. Now, this is like saying to ACORN really, except they're clean."

"This one is an independent grassroots‑driven machine. And it is the same kind of machine that drove people to Chick‑fil‑A. There is nobody that called people in, bused people. Nobody was making fraudulent chicken sandwiches and selling them. That didn't happen. Nobody was promising hookers and illegal aliens anything if he just went into Chick‑fil‑A. It was just people of principle saying enough is enough and that's what's going to happen."

"They are misreading the force of how many people are excited to go vote for Barack Obama. They are saying that it's going to be ‑‑ that people are more excited. It's going to be a bigger turnout for Barack Obama than there was in 2008. That's just logically impossible, logically impossible. Now, could it be, go back to normal levels of 2006? Yeah. But he's no longer the guy who's going to bring innovative change and hope and everybody's all excited and, hey, I'm going to vote for the first African‑American. That's not happening this time. None of that is happening."

Stu said, "And they show over and over again margins that would exceed 2008 or tie 2008 as far as democratic turnout over Republicans. And that just doesn't ‑‑ I mean, just looking a the it, we know what's happened the last four years. Even if you like the president, you're not going to be as excited about it because, A, he's not new and, as you point out, it's not this historic first anymore. Plus the performance obviously has been middling at best."

Glenn is having his researchers look at recent close elections, and he believes that past evidence will support his theory that anywhere the election is currently close will see Mitt Romney add several points in the final results next week.

"If it's close right now in swing states, he will put either three or six points on top of that," Glenn said.

Glenn used Iowa as an example. "Tied 48‑48. He will be anywhere from 3 to 6 points ahead in Iowa. When that comes back, that count, it will be 3 to 6 points ahead."

If you extrapolate his theory that you could swing three to six points in swing states to Romney, Glenn ended up with a 321-217 victory for Romney in the electoral college.

Stu and Glenn both said that these results are dependent on activists, 9/12 groups, Tea Party members, churches, and others all turning out and voting.

Even if Romney scores a victory, Glenn said to watch for Barack Obama's professional career after the White House. Like many national level progressives - Carter, Clinton, Gore - Glenn thinks Obama could be just as influential among liberals out of office as he was while in office.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
