Glenn reacts to Bevin’s loss in KY: Remember, only 10% changes the world

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) cruised to victory on Tuesday in Kentucky’s Republican primary – besting Matt Bevin. McConnell will now face off against Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes in November’s midterm election. McConnell and Grimes are neck and neck in the polls. Glenn was obviously disappointed with the results of the primary, but on radio this morning he took a surprisingly optimistic tone as he emphasized the power of the individual.

“There are 3,105,349 Kentuckians that are registered to vote. McConnell won with 209,829 votes total. Bevin got 124,544 votes. [209,829] people voted for Mitch McConnell out of 3,105,000. That means there are 2,770,976 people who didn't vote for anybody,” Glenn said. “Were we too busy watching movies? Were we too busy playing on our cell phones? I'm not sure. 10% voted yesterday in Kentucky for one of these two men.”

Glenn firmly believes that everything happens for a reason, and this is not the last the world will see of Matt Bevin. While the voter turnout in Kentucky was abysmal, some 125,000 felt the need to cast their vote for change even though the polls were not in their favor.

“No real answers are going to be found in Washington. The people who created the problem will not be able to solve the problem. And now we are actively engaged and eagerly voting for our own destruction. When a people vote for their own destruction, there is nothing that can stop it,” Glenn said. “[But] there were 124,000 in Kentucky that still believe in change the right way. The rest voted, if they voted at all, for same stuff… [But] 124,000 people said, ‘You know, I'm going to vote for change.’”

The last few months Glenn has openly discussed some of the things he is praying for, and humility comes up time and time again. Glenn opened this morning about he has been struggling to figure out why the summer event he had in the works was unable to come together.

As Glenn explained, he and his staff had “a spectacular summer event planned in Pittsburgh” that would have included Sean Hannity and Mark Levin, but it feel apart not once but twice. After things fell through the second time, Glenn realized he might be getting a message – though he didn’t understand it at the time. Yesterday, Glenn believes he came to a better understanding.

“Yesterday I think I figured out the message: Politics. Too big. Far too big. The answer is not there,” Glenn explained. “I don't know what you will do. You might choose to give up. You might choose to be discouraged and walk away. You might choose to get mad, to get even. I urge you to remember Moses – delayed for 40 years.”

It is time to start thinking about the larger group, the collective and refocus our attention on the individual. TheBlaze is going to continue to grow and expand in different ways as Glenn refocuses his own priorities as well.

“We're no longer capable of standing as a group. We must stand as individuals. Who you will follow, I have no idea. I know who I'm going to follow. And it's not going to be a man. And I recommend the same thing for you,” Glenn said. “I wrote this last night about 1 o’clock in the morning. I want you to know clearly who I am and where I'm going.”

Glenn explained what he feels he is being called to do:

In my professional life, TheBlaze will continue to tell the news stories of the day. That was step one. It always has been step one. TheBlaze will continue to tell the news of the day, and we will look for ways to expand that in every possible opportunity. We will ask you and beg you to help us do that.

But I am also going into culture. I mean I didn't really have this much white hair four years ago, five years ago. It's white. And let me tell you something: We're about to go into the culture in ways that I hope will turn everybody's hair white. And it's not about politics. And it's not about control. It's about the individual. We're going to keep fighting professionally.

Political life: I'm going to continue to vote. I'm going to continue to have a strong voice on what I think people should do. In my religious life, that is a dedicated priority. That and my family, priority number one. I believe in Him and I will continue to pray to be humbled so I only rely on Him.

I've started praying for not the future. Can I have just my daily bread? Will You just provide enough food for me today so I can continue to rely on You. He doesn't trust me or anybody else because we'll do it our way. I don't want to do it my way. I've done it my way over and over and over again. It doesn't work. Please, just make sure that I'm doing Your way every step of the way.

In my personal life, I will continue, I hope, to fundamentally as transform as a man. Corrie ten Boom is one of my goals. Create light. Moses is the American story. Do we get to the Promised Land? I don't know. Maybe. Maybe not.

Ultimately, Glenn believes that with each and every person humbling himself or herself and living the life he or she is supposed to live, real change can occur. It doesn’t take a lot of people. It just takes the right people.

“Remember, only 10% of the Israelites left with Moses. 10%. 90% accepted the slavery. 10% changes the world. 10%,” Glenn concluded. “But the number required? One individual. I'm dumb enough not to stop, but I'm smart enough to change tactics. No third party. It won't work. What does? Nothing that comes from man. Find your path. Follow no man. Love one another. Vengeance is His. Quite frankly, everything is His. We don't own any of this stuff. We're supposed to be caretakers, and I fear we have dropped the ball on that one.”

Glenn spent much of the first hour discussing this theme. You can listen to the entire hour below:

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."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
