Glenn unleashes on Paul Ryan backer

For those who tuned in to Glenn's radio program on Thursday, it shouldn't have been hard to tell he was upset. Glenn didn't attempt to hide his feelings of betrayal when the Freedom Caucus expressed support for Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House after previously emphasizing the importance of getting someone else in there who could change the process.

Glenn's staff tried calling the Freedom Caucus founders so they could defend their position to Glenn's listeners, but got crickets in response.

"Gee, they're not taking phone calls," Glenn said.

One person who supported Paul Ryan actually agreed to come on the program - Georgia Rep. Barry Loudermilk.

"I have told Mr. Loudermilk's staff he's walking into a buzz saw, but he's more than welcome," Glenn said. "Maybe he has a good explanation, and we will treat him with respect as he is the only one so far that has had the guts to come on the program and face his constituents."

Watch the heated exchange below.

Glenn's staff called every member of the Freedom Caucus on Thursday after Glenn's radio show ended. Here are the results.

- Chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio, Chair - Phone line was busy.

- Justin Amash of Michigan – Nobody answered and mailbox was full.

- Brian Babin of Texas – Staff member wasn't sure.

- Rod Blum of Iowa – Nobody answered and mailbox was full.

- Dave Brat of Virginia – Had a previous engagement so wasn't at Wednesday night's Freedom Caucus meeting. Staff member was unable to commit to a specific candidate for speaker.


- Mo Brooks of Alabama – Staff member hadn't spoken to him, so not sure.

- Ken Buck of Colorado – Staff member wasn't sure.

- Curt Clawson of Florida – Opposed Paul Ryan Wednesday night. Has supported Daniel Webster in the past. Staff member assumed he will next week as well.

- Ron DeSantis of Florida – Staff member hadn't spoken to him, so not sure.

- Scott Desjarlais of Tennessee – Staff member said Rep. Desjarlais seemed to be ok with supporting Paul Ryan, but that could change.

- Jeff Duncan of South Carolina – Supported Paul Ryan at the Wednesday night gathering.

- John Fleming of Louisiana – Staff member wasn't sure.

- Trent Franks of Arizona – Still up in the air.

- Scott Garrett of New Jersey – Staff member wouldn't share either way.

- Paul Gosar of Arizona – Staff member hadn't seen him, so not sure.

- Morgan Griffith of Virginia – Staff member hadn't spoken to him, so not sure.

- Andy Harris of Maryland – Staff member said nothing has been shared publically.

- Jody Hice of Georgia – Staff said Rep. Hice hadn't discussed this with them, so couldn't speak to this now.

- Tim Huelskamp of Kansas – SOLIDLY FOR DANIEL WEBSTER.

- Raúl Labrador of Idaho – Supporting Paul Ryan but "not his demands."

- Barry Loudermilk of Georgia – Supporting Paul Ryan.

- Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming – Still considering the candidates.

- Mark Meadows of North Carolina – Staff said he's having an open conversation but hasn't formerly decided.

- Alex Mooney of West Virginia – Undecided.

- Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina – Referred to Facebook page where he states that he is standing with the founders of the Freedom Caucus - so must be for Paul Ryan.

- Gary Palmer of Alabama – Undecided.


- Scott Perry of Pennsylvania – Supporting Paul Ryan.

- Ted Poe of Texas – Has met with Paul Ryan several times, but is still reviewing his options.

- Bill Posey of Florida – SUPPORTING DANIEL WEBSTER.

- Keith Rothfus of Pennsylvania – Considering options until the vote next week.

- Matt Salmon of Arizona – Still undecided.

- Mark Sanford of South Carolina – Standing with the majority of the Freedom Caucus - so must be for Paul Ryan.

- David Schweikert of Arizona - Standing with the Freedom Caucus - so must be for Paul Ryan.

- Marlin Stutzman of Indiana - Standing with the Freedom Caucus - so must be for Paul Ryan.

- Randy Weber of Texas – Staff said he's still undecided and that lots of calls are coming in telling him not to vote for Paul Ryan - so, they are listening!

- Ted Yoho of Florida – DANIEL WEBSTER. Period.

In summary, out of the 38 members of the Freedom Caucus:

- 14% are publicly for Daniel Webster

- 45% are supporting Paul Ryan

- 42% are undecided (half of which most likely support Paul Ryan in order to support the Freedom Caucus claim that they have a super majority on their side)

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."
