Glenn responds to the Newtown ‘truthers’

With the one month anniversary of the school shooting in Newtown just coming to pass, it appears as though the conspiracy theorists are out in full force. According to TheBlaze, a growing group of people are claiming that the entire tragedy was a government manufactured hoax or that it never happened at all.

Unfortunately, we have come to expect ‘truther’ claims in the wake of inexplicable events (most notably after September 11). And on radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the conspiratorial stories, blaming people’s growing distrust of the government for the trend.

First and foremost, there has been a movement away from the principles of self-regulation and self-governance. The Founders were able to stipulate the rights of the Second Amendment because people understood the power of the gun. There was an understanding that it was something to help defend. Fast forward to today, and our culture has changed dramatically. Our society is no longer guided by those same values.

“Our society is sick. Our families are sick. And they're under attack. The family unit is being destroyed. God, country, family – all of them are under attack,” Glenn said. “Why is this happening? Because we refuse to recognize God, country, family. We refuse to say what my relationship to my family is. What is the importance of my relationship with God? What is my duty, my responsibility to my country? I say, ‘What is my country doing for me,’ instead of ‘What can I do for my country?’”

Furthermore, the meanings of what is the truth and what is a right have become relative because we have moved away from God. “There is no such thing as an inalienable right,” he said. “I have a right to defend myself. How do I know that? Because it happens in nature… You have a right to defend yourself because God gave you that, but there is no inalienable right anymore.”

People are more willing to believe anything because no one is pegged to the truth. There is no universal truth. No natural truth. No natural God. No God's law. “Go find the truth, and then guard it,” Glenn continued. “Because there are a lot of people coming out now who will tell you the ‘truth’ because you don't believe in anything. You don't know who to trust anymore.”

“Here's what happened in Sandy hook,” Glenn said. “He is a madman because he's unstable by birth; because he's on mind altering medications? I don't know, maybe. Because of the combination of the two? I don't know, maybe. Because he was playing these games all the time and he had found himself more and more isolated? I don't know, maybe. I can tell you this: the guns didn't make him do it. The guns were a tool. Guns have saved a lot of people. They're not inherently evil; it's what you decide to do with them.”

“I know he's responsible,” he continued. “What helped play a role? Maybe he's just insane? I don't know. But I can tell you, it wasn't the gun. And it wasn't the government. The government didn't set this kid up. The government didn't coax this kid. The funerals were real. They happened… Those weren’t actors. Those were real, real funerals, and those were real people.”

While the government did not create this situation that is not to say it did not play a role in the aftermath. “Don't consume any of the poison… Because that's exactly what it is,” Glen said. “Here's what the government did do – exploited it. The government is great at not wasting an emergency… They waited and they exploited it. It's not a conspiracy. It is a danger to the Republic.”

"I fear we're going to be so fragmented because no one will trust each other,” Glenn concluded. “If you stand for something true, understand that just like all the people that stood for real truth, you will be totally alone in the end. May God give us all strength to remain standing and remain true.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

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."
