Glenn reacts to the ‘most important’ speech given last night

Congresswoman Cathy McMorris-Rodgers (R-WA) delivered the official Republican Party response to the State of the Union, and Glenn found himself unimpressed by the worn out platitudes and party-pleasing rhetoric. Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Mike Lee (R-UT) also delivered assessments of the state of our union aimed at a more small-government, liberty-minded audience, and Glenn connected much more to their sentiment. In fact, Glenn was so impressed with Sen. Lee’s remarks he heralded the speech as the ‘most important’ given by a politician recently.

“Was anybody else frustrated by the GOP response,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Then you have Mike Lee, who gave the response for the Tea Party Express… between him and Rand Paul, those were the best… I watched the opening [few] minutes of each, and I will tell you that those eight minutes were more powerful, more truthful, and more plain spoken than anything the President has said for about three months and more than anything that the press has said… It will connect with you because it's common sense, common values, and common courtesy.”

Glenn first focused on Sen. Paul’s because he did an excellent job of boiling down the most serious problems facing this country in a succinct, easily digestible way.

“The President was offering all kinds of solutions yesterday, but he was not talking about the problem. We have not yet talked about the problem. What is his excuse… You cannot fix a problem unless you address the problem. So here's the opening that I think every American should see of Rand Paul… He's talking about what the problem is and then he goes into the solution.”

Watch Sen. Paul’s speech below:

“You listen to him and he really starts to lay out the problem and then he presents the solution,” Glenn surmised. “That was more clear and more educational and better for the American people than anything the President said.”

Meanwhile, Sen. Lee delivered a very plainspoken speech that obviously directed at the American people, not the political elites in Washington, D.C.

“I want you to really listen to this, America, because this addresses you… He is not talking to the political elites. He is not talking to the party. He is not talking to anybody but the average American, who he recognizes is tired, is burned out, is discouraged,” Glenn said. “This is, I think, probably the most important political speech I have heard in a very long time from anyone in Washington because he's speaking directly to you.”

Watch Sen. Lee’s remarks in their entirety below:

What Glenn most appreciated about Sen. Lee’s address was the uniting tone it struck. Any and all Americans who value small government and less federal overreach will appreciate what the Senator said, and Glenn believes that inclusive attitude will prove vital moving forward.

“This is the most important speech I think I have heard from a politician in I don't know how long because, A, I know Mike Lee. I know he means this. And listen to what he's saying: We're all alike. And those who went out and protested a government they didn't want, you played an important role. And you might feel discouraged right now,” Glenn said. “[But] there is more growth in the American people… We focus on the problems in our society. We focus on how many people are not getting it, are not paying attention, aren't reading a book. But could we for a second trust the American people and see how many millions across this land are more awake than they have ever been before in their life?”

“Trust the American people,” Glenn concluded. “And prepare yourself to go to the next step now and that is being for something great.”

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."
