We should look to the people of Iceland for some of our answers

More than 10,000 Icelanders offered to take in Syrian refugees after a prominent author from Iceland publicly requested her country's government allow citizens to help with the crisis. In an open letter posted on Facebook, Bryndis Bjorgvinsdottir pleaded with the country's welfare minister to raise the cap of just 50 asylum seekers per year. She said she knew someone who could take in five fleeing Syrians and asked for others to express public support.

On radio Tuesday, Glenn urged his listeners to take this story to heart and then do something about it.

"Out of a country of 300,000 people, 10,000 people in 24 hours said, 'I'll offer up my home. I'll offer up my money.' I'm asking you to do the same thing today," Glenn said.

Glenn said he has a goal of raising $10 million before Christmas to rescue Christians fleeing from ISIS.

"If you have no money, can you house somebody? Can your neighborhood house somebody? Can your church house a family? Can you help spread the word? Can you help just as a prayer warrior? What is it that you can do? Because everybody has something," Glenn said.

GLENN: We can save 2,000 people or more by Christmas. 2,000 people. Just so, you know, that's 800 more people than Schindler and his list saved. We can save 2,000 souls. And that's only if 400 churches get involved. 400 churches that is, hey, I will take a family. Now, it's $25,000 to get those families here. We'll break all those families down for you by the end of the week so you know exactly where the money is going, how it's being used. But did you see what Iceland is doing? Because Iceland is only a country of 300,000 people. 300,000 people in the entire country.

But one woman got on Facebook. She's a prominent author in Iceland. And she couldn't take it. And so she went on Facebook and she launched a campaign after the government said we'll take 60 refugees. We'll take 60. She thought, that's not enough.

So she went on Facebook and she said, who else will take some? Who will volunteer as a family to take a family in? I'm asking you, which churches -- will your church volunteer to take a family in? In the space of 24 hours, 10,000 Icelanders offered up their homes and urged their government to do more.

People wrote in, I'm a single mother with a 6-year-old son, I can take a child in need. I'm a teacher, I'll teach a child to speak, read, write. Adjust to our society. Another one wrote, I have clothes, a bed, toys, everything children would need. I'll pay for the airline ticket even to get them here.

Out of a country of 300,000 people, 10,000 people in 24 hours said, I'll offer up my home. I'll offer up my money. I'm asking you to do the same thing today. I'm going to post in a few minutes just a quick note that just says, what churches will take a family? What people will take one person? Will you offer up your home? See, when I started telling you that we are going to repeat the 1930s, everybody thought I was nuts. When I said, we're going to have to be a people that will hide or take people. Are you -- are you willing to be one of the righteous among the nations?

I thought this would happen with the Jews. I didn't think it would happen with the Christians. I thought it would happen with the Jews. But it's happening with the Christians. So now, what are we going to do? I ask you again what I asked you six, seven, eight, ten years ago. When the world goes mad and the world is crucifying people, when they're building houses of horror and concentrate camps -- I mean, what's the difference between the concentrate camp at Auschwitz and the one barrack in Auschwitz that held female prisoners that were used as prostitutes, used as pleasure receptacles, forced to have sex -- what's the difference between that and the 8-year-old girl that just escaped ISIS, who has testified that she was raped up to ten times a day every single day? What is her life like? What's the difference?

There is none. We said never again. Well, never again is now. I have a goal of raising $10 million by Christmas. That's a huge goal. I don't know if we can even make that. That's the largest amount of money we've ever asked to raise, by far. By far.

Maybe we can only make 5 million. I don't know. We've already raised 3 million. And not from big donors. Big checks. The average check is $100. It's the average listener. But it's the average listener that wants their name in the book of life. They want their name. This is the time that giants are born. And you're either going to sit on the sidelines. And not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. You're going to sit on the sidelines, and your name is going to be written in the book of death. Or you'll find a way -- if you have no money, can you house somebody? Can your neighborhood house somebody? Can your church house a family? Can you help spread the word? Can you help just as a prayer warrior? What is it that you can do? Because everybody has something.

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!"
