TheBlaze unveils new features, technology to provide latest real time results on Election Night


On Election Night, TheBlaze will be unveiling new features and new technology that will allow members of TheBlaze community to get breaking news, original commentary, as well as the up to the minute results on all the major elections happening across the country.

When viewers turn on TheBlaze TV, they will see the latest results displayed on a ticker going underneath the screen. TheBlaze will also be displaying the latest numbers and results on set, both in on screen graphics and the old school tote board. These numbers will be coming in from the Associated Press, the same source for results that other major news networks use to get their results.

TheBlaze will be broadcasting from several locations across the country. Glenn will be joined by the Real News team in the Dallas studios, which will act as the hub for the television coverage. There will also be members of the show weighing in from TheBlaze Newsroom in New York City, as well as in Washington, DC. TheBlaze will also have reporters at the campaign headquarters of Mitt Romney (Boston, MA) and Barack Obama (Chicago, IL).

TheBlaze.com will also be modifying its homepage to reflect the latest results, making them easy for readers to find up-to-the-minute vote tallies.

Glenn Hall, Managing Editor for TheBlaze.com, wrote, "We are retooling our homepage to offer a host of new features, including real-time updates from across the nation, an interactive electoral map, a chat room for our followers alongside the news and analysis from TheBlaze team."

"We’ll have the latest electoral tally for Romney and Obama at the top of the page, and we are deploying a state-of-the-art vote tally system to get you the results the second they are available from the AP," Hall continued.

TheBlaze will allow viewers and readers to engage in a unique, multi-platform split-screen experience on Election Night. While they are watching the coverage on TheBlaze TV, they can participate in the ongoing Live Chat with Blaze writers and personalities right on the homepage of TheBlaze.com. In the past, the entire editorial staff of TheBlaze has joined in, alongside producers for Glenn's television show and members of the Real News team like Buck Sexton and S.E. Cupp.

Finally, TheBlaze.com will for the first time be providing live look-ins to TheBlaze TV. At the top of each hour beginning at 5pm ET, TheBlaze TV will be available for a few minutes for free to people on the homepage of TheBlaze.com.

"We're going to have the perspective for you that nobody else has.  Also all of the technology.  I know I have a chalkboard behind me, but we have all of the technology that gives you the exact results at the same time," Glenn said on radio this morning.

"I'm not asking you to make us your primary ‑‑ I mean, well, I am," he said. "I'd love for you to do that, but I understand.  We haven't earned the right to give you the coverage and have you say, 'Oh, I'm with Glenn all night.'  Please let us earn that beginning tonight and tomorrow."

"We've brought all of our news people, or about half of our news people in from New York.  The other half are going to be up in New York.  This half's going to be down here in Texas and we're going to cover it like nobody else will.  And we'll give you everything you need with realtime results, just as fast as the network.  Because I'm paying through the nose for it.  So I have the same numbers that come to CBS News come instantaneously at the same time to me. You'll have them all on the screen and everything you need."

 

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
