How has Hamas gained favor in the media?

I want to start with the latest round of violence in Gaza. For two weeks, the fighting has raged. There is no clear end in sight. Over 500 now are dead, and the media is trying to make this so complex, but it’s really, really easy. Here it is: For Israel, they have a right to defend themselves from extremists who want to kill the Jews and wipe them off the face of the map.

That’s it, it’s that simple, but people get confused and led astray by the rhetoric and everything else. For example, according to Hamas supporters, this Palestinian-American that I’m going to show you here was at a protest in San Francisco, and listen to what he said.

It is about humanity, if anything, to save the people of Palestine. We’re all humans. We’re all children of God.

We are, and I believe that 100%. So let’s test the theory versus the facts on the ground. Are we looking at people who, Hamas, I’m not talking about the Palestinians. Hamas, are they humans? Do they all believe we are humans?

Over the weekend, the military wing of Hamas announced that they had taken an Israeli soldier prisoner. Here is how these children of God reacted.

Really? The only thing worth celebrating in war is when it ends. Now that’s how humans and children of God view war. Sometimes it’s necessary. It is always tragic on both sides. But Hamas does not hold the same view. They do not value all life.

In 2012, Hamas executed six Israelis they deemed as spies, and they celebrated as they dragged the dead bodies through the streets. May I ask you, is this human? Is this human? Is this how children of – are these children of God? Answer yes, are they behaving like children of God? Can you imagine living in a country that was doing this?

The worst enemy of our nation in my lifetime was Osama bin Laden. He was shown, I believe, undeserved respect in death, but we did it because we’re human. I’d say this reaction is animalistic, but even animals don’t do this to other animals.

Hamas is in a league entirely of their own, and yet somehow they have gained favor in the media. Sympathetic reporters refer to Israelis as scum. Protesters are lauded as pro-Palestinian when in reality it’s not pro-Palestinian, it is anti-Israel. They will not stop until Israel is wiped off the map. That’s in their charter.

Reuters benignly said these protesters rallied across France this weekend. Reuters, don’t even start with the number of corrections you have to make through this weekend. This is not a rally. This was a riot. They left a trail of violence including torching of cars, clashing with the police. They were looting Jewish stores. It’s like calling Kristallnacht a rally. No.

They continue to highlight the plight of the Palestinian. Meanwhile, Hamas digs smuggling tunnels directly underneath its civilian population. Even the president has said Israel has a right to go in and get these tunnels, but they’re underneath the civilians. Israel cannot stop the flow of terrorists and rockets with airstrikes alone. Actually, let me correct that. Actually they could, but they would have to wipe out everybody in Gaza, reduce it to rubble.

Not only do they not want to do that because of public reaction, they don’t want to do that because they value life. They could, but they do not.

Instead, they have to launch a risky ground invasion. Instead of doing it from the sky, they go in on the ground, and as a result 13 Israeli soldiers were killed in an operation Sunday. Among those 13 Israelis who died yesterday were two Americans, the first Americans to die in this conflict, 24 and 21 years old. They grew up in America, went to Israel, and joined the IDF. They’re dead.

Now, this is truly amazing, these two that were dead, this is truly amazing, I believe, because this has happened before, where Americans say you know what, I’ve got to stop, I’ve got to stop this. This is a Spitfire made out of, I can’t remember the name of the kind of plastic, but this plastic is what actually was in the cockpit, the window that the Spitfire was made. And it was a new kind of plastic.

This Spitfire was the Spitfire what was used in the Battle of Britain in 1940. Before America joined the war, Great Britain was. Well, this particular Spitfire was given as a gift to the guy who flew this Spitfire. He was an American. He was actually the first American that died in World War II that was Jewish. He was in early because he saw the injustice and he saw what was happening in Germany, the first American, Jewish-American, that died in World War II.

This weekend, the same thing happen again, and it all started when Hamas abducted and brutally executed three Israeli teenagers near the Green Line borders. How do you abduct, and they do this all the time, abduct and kill innocents? Is that human? Is that children of God?

Now, the media ignores all the evils of Hamas, including their own written charter and their own words.

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!"
