Labor Day message from Glenn

Hello America,

Hard to believe it’s Labor Day already. I don’t know about you, but time seems to be moving in hyper-lapse speed - one little blink and summer is already in the rear view mirror. I know this weekend is generally reserved for kicking back and hanging with family, and I plan to do that. But I’m also gearing up because there is much work to do.

We start the new season of The Glenn Beck Program when I return tomorrow, and we have a ton of projects we’re hard at work on. Most of that work is focused on the path forward. In fact, you’ll see our first new project unveiled on Monday, September 8, when Dana moves to five nights a week as part of TheBlaze’s new fall lineup.

There is some serious heavy lifting to be done, and most of it will be in the form of coming to grips with the reality of how we must move forward. It is so tempting to fall into the old patterns that have gotten us nowhere. Sure, it feels pretty darn good to unleash on ridiculous progressive arguments - but that cannot be the only thing we offer. Yes, the truth must continue to be told. And, yes, that will sometimes take the form of picking apart the fatal flaws of progressivism. But is that enough? Is simply pointing out the log in another’s eye really going to rally people to our cause? We’ve tried that approach, and it’s only brought more division.

No conversion story – whether it be religious, political or otherwise – ever starts with it all began when I lost an argument. If you truly want to win hearts and minds, ‘winning’ the argument simply isn’t going to get the job done. We have to find a better approach, and that’s what I’m in the process of pinning down. I don’t know what it looks like exactly, but I have seen flashes of it. What I do know is that the common thread must be mercy. We will continue to demand justice and hold the corrupt accountable, but we must be quick to showmercy to those in need.

Mercy is more powerful than any verbal argument could ever be. Jesus himself made (obviously) many great and logical arguments. But he was also healing the sick, feeding the hungry, and comforting those in mourning. He did so many things like this, in fact, that if it had all been written down “the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”

We are to teach the truth and correct principles, but we can’t do that at the expense of actually living out those principles. How do we live them out? Act justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly. What does that look like, exactly? Glad you ask. I saw the perfect example last weekend in Ferguson, Missouri with the local Tea Party there.

As angry protesters were busy looting and trashing local businesses, the St. Louis Tea Party staged a ‘BUYcott’ aimed at helping the businesses harmed by the violence. One local business owner was shocked to learn the people helping were from the Tea Party. Their genuine act of mercy and kindness shattered every myth this shop owner had ever heard about the so-called racist and heartless Tea Party. His heart was literally changed on the spot because everything he thought he knew was just proved wrong. That one act of mercy and kindness did more than a thousand of the best arguments ever could.

That is how we win – and I don’t mean ‘we’ as in ‘Republicans.’ I mean ‘we’ as in Americans, as humans.

That’s what we’ve been reduced to. We’re just pawns in their power game. We’ve all been duped to varying degrees - constantly drawn into false choices.

I refuse to be a pawn in the progressive game of the left - and especially of the right.

I refuse to be placed in a category and pitted against my neighbor.

I will demand justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with my God.

These are God’s values and the values I have been trying to follow since the day I first believed. I haven’t always been the best at putting them into practice, but it’s never too late to saddle up and try again. Following these values will not always make me popular, but I’m okay with that because popularity is a fruitless goal. If everyone always agrees with you, chances are you have never stated your true beliefs or, worse, you have violated them.

If pursuing this path causes me to lose whatever popularity I have, so be it. I’d rather lose everything and keep my soul than gain everything and lose it.

Although I’m confident I will stumble in this pursuit, I hope you will walk with me anyway. There is much work to do - many hands and feet are needed.

Enjoy this day of rest. I will see you tomorrow at 9am ET.

Laus Deo,

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."
