WATCH: You won't believe the story behind this flag

On Monday's show, Glenn spent the opening monologue criticizing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's remarks stating that that some conservatives have no place in New York. At the end of the segment, Glenn told the story of a flag he has had on set for the past few months, and how it shows the true spirit of Americans and conservatives who are living in the state.

I don’t think any American, left, right, straight, gay, believer, atheist, believes that less diversity, less voices, more intolerance is better. I don’t think anybody thinks that that that’s what they had in mind when they came up with Excelsior. I’m disturbed because I have 200 employees in New York, and let me tell you, Governor, who we are.

It was the day after 9/11. Dust was still in the air, smoke at Ground Zero. I was there a few days after this, and it was an awful place to be. And I’m sure the governor was there too. And it was a time that united all of us. The day after, it was 9/12, a day when we were amazing to each other, and parties didn’t matter anymore, when we were John Doe.

A woman and her spouse left their apartment, it overlooked Ground Zero, and they didn’t know what to do. Everything was closed. Everything was utter chaos and covered in ash. It was awful. I saw this area a week later, and I will never, it took me a decade to get the smell out of my nose every time I thought of it. It reeked of death.

So here these two are, they’re walking down the street, and they go into a restaurant. And they’re sitting in this restaurant. And they look out the window, and they see this woman covered in ash. And she is distraught and disoriented, and she’s talking to herself. And she has wrapped this flag around her like a shawl.

And they see her coming, and they immediately get up and leave the restaurant and say we’ll be right back. And they go out, and they comfort this woman. She was sitting on the sidewalk, and she was absolutely incoherent. And they couldn’t console her for quite some time. They talked to her about anything, and they talked to her about this flag. And she said I was down at Ground Zero, and it was in the rubble. And I pulled it out. And she was using it as a cover, a shield.

She said that her husband was a police officer. She hadn’t been able to get a hold of him, and she was going down to see if she could find him. She walked across the bridge. It was clear that the odds were not in her favor at the time. Well, they calmed her down, and she stood up. And she said I have to go home. They asked if they could help her, go with her, and they wouldn’t happen.

And she was grateful for the good Samaritans, for they would provide a shoulder to cry on. As they started apart, she took this flag off of her shoulders, and she gave it to this couple. They returned home, and they put that flag on display for everyone to see right outside their window overlooking Ground Zero.

A few years later, they joined something we started called the 9/12 Project, and they tried and tried and tried to get this flag to me because they said the flag didn’t belong to me, it belonged to America. It belonged to anybody who understood who we really were on 9/12. It belonged to everybody that understood that we need to come together, and we need to come together not just after an awful tragedy.

I share this story for two reasons: One, this is who we are. We’re people that live side by side, and we help each other when we’re in trouble. We don’t wait for FEMA, and we don’t wait for the Republicans or the Democrats. We just do it because it’s right.

But the other reason I wanted to share this is the one detail of the story that I left out, the members of the 9/12 project, that couple that was looking for a flag, two Conservatives, they are strong on the Constitution and the right to life and everything else, but they’re also two lesbians, two women, Conservatives, members of this audience who live in New York.

Yesterday, I thought about this flag. As I thought about the governor’s statements, I thought boy, Governor, do you believe they have a place in your state?

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."
