Another Florida recount: Allen West

Glenn spoke with Allen West on radio today, an American hero who is somehow in a contested battle to regain his seat in Congress. There is a recount happening after some alleged mistakes were made in double counting votes, West also picked up 300 extra votes in absentee ballots. Will he hang on?

Transcript of interview is below:

STU: Allen West?

JEFFY: You're on. You're on.

GLENN: Allen West, welcome, sir.

WEST: Hi, Glenn

GLENN: How are you?

WEST: How are you doing, my friend?

GLENN: I am very good. How are you? You're up 300?

WEST: Well, no. What happened was a couple ‑‑ the first day of absentee military ballot counts we picked up three on that day of 300 more votes. So that closed the margin which, you know, we kind of questioned anyhow because 2:00 Wednesday morning all of a sudden it went from myself being up about 2,000 votes to my opponent being up by 4,400 votes.

PAT: Wow.

WEST: And accordingly the story from the St. Lucie County supervisor of elections that they went back and recounted ballots that had already been counted within like a 40‑minute period. So that's one of the things that we're questioning with the injunction of the St. Lucie County. But the absentee military ballots are very promising. We're right now about .15% away from a forced recount. So we're going pretty well. And we continue to trust in God for the right outcome.

GLENN: I tell you, Allen, I've never seen anything ‑‑ I mean, this has been a very disappointing week. Just a very disappointing week in our own fellow countrymen and in this case if there's ‑‑ if there's foul play, what our fellow countrymen are capable of doing for election. I have no ‑‑ I have no problem, you know, going into a battle and fighting and duking it out and then let the chips fall where they may and if you lose, you lose. I have no problem with that. But it's got to be fair.

WEST: Yeah, absolutely. And see, this is not about me. This is about making sure that we have integrity in our electoral process. So it's, you know, having served in the military for 22 years, this is part of the thing that I stood as a watchman on the wall to guard the liberty, freedom and democracy in our process that we have here. So, you know, whatever come what may. I know that, you know, God is in control and he will determine what path that He wants me to be on. But we've got to make sure that the people in congressional District 18 get a fair electoral process and the right results come out.

GLENN: What's your next step?

WEST: Well, we have a couple of hearings today in St. Lucie county, in Palm Beach County with some of the irregularities in the voting process that have been accounted. In St. Lucie County they actually violated the Florida state law by closing up and locking the doors of a polling location and counting votes. The doors are supposed to remain open so anyone can come in and, you know, take part of serving that process. So we've got some issues there and some discrepancies, as we talked about the early morning discrepancy. And there seems to be some issues between amounts of ballots that were cast and amount of people that showed up at some polling locations.

PAT: Allen, you've always been a man to call it like it is and so we're wondering if you are willing now to ‑‑

GLENN: Don't ‑‑

PAT: ‑‑ call Chris Christie a fat bastard.

STU: I don't know why you're doing this.

GLENN: I don't think that's really necessary, Pat.

PAT: He lost the election for Mitt Romney. I'm just wondering ‑‑

GLENN: I don't think that's really ‑‑

PAT: ‑‑ if you're plain spoken enough to go ahead and say Chris Christie is, in fact, a fat bastard.

WEST: No, no.

GLENN: Thank you. No, he's not. I'm going to cut you some slack, Allen, mainly because you could kill all of us with a spoon. But I wish you luck and we'll keep you in our prayers this weekend and you keep going, brother. You just keep going and make sure that it's fair and right.

WEST: Absolutely.

GLENN: God bless you.

WEST: Remember tomorrow's the 237th Marine Corps birthday. So please say happy birthday to a marine and have a great Veterans Day and remember those people that served, sacrificed and committed to our country.

GLENN: Semper Fi.

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.
