Did Russia Commit an Act of War?

Is there any doubt what would have happened if Russians hacked into the RNC on Ronald Reagan's watch? It would have been an act of war.

"It would be 20,000 times worse than Watergate. They are trying to influence our election, and no one is asking why." Glenn said.

As usual, the mainstream media focused on the wrong reasons and people.

"They'll go to stupid and silly motivations like, 'Well, they're a fan of Donald Trump because he has investments.' There's no evidence of that. There's no proof of that. Or they'll say, 'Well, because Vladimir Putin doesn't like Hillary Clinton because she embarrassed him on the world stage.' True. But Putin is too smart for that. This is too big of a move just to embarrass somebody," Glenn said.

Glenn laid out the case Wednesday on his TV program and Thursday on radio behind the WikiLeaks release of 20,000 emails on the eve of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) --- and who's behind it.

First things first, it's been confirmed that Russia was behind the hack and, in effect, broke into DNC headquarters. Three separate security firms --- SecureWorks, CrowdStrike and Fidelis Cybersecurity --- have confirmed the Russian military and the new KGB, known as the FSB, were behind the cyber attacks, specifically two cyber units nicknamed Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear.

How did WikiLeaks become involved? How did the company come into possession of the emails? For now, both the Russian government and WikiLeaks have denied the emails were transferred between the two entities.

"If WikiLeaks isn't an apparatus bought and paid for by the Russian intelligence services, it is clearly a preferred partner," Glenn said.

In 2006, Julian Assange founded WikiLeaks in Australia. Previously, he hosted an interview show called the World Tomorrow, which aired on a network called RT. RT used to stand for Russia Today. According to RT's website, it is an international English language network that provides an alternate perspective on major global events and acquaints international audiences with a Russian viewpoint.

"This network is owned by the federal government of Russia. Which means, it is run by Vladimir Putin, a former KGB, FSB agent. It is pure propaganda, which goes against everything that WikiLeaks says they are. Their slogan is, 'We open governments.' Well, you're presenting your view on a government propaganda machine," Glenn said.

Another ominous link between WikiLeaks and the Russian government involves former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

In 2013, Assange reached out to Snowden, brokering the deal to get him to Russia. Snowden took sanctuary in Russia, under the watchful eye of the Russian government. At his own request, Assange now enjoys the protection of the FSB while hiding out in London.

The rabbit hole deepens with Donald Trump's campaign team.

Key members of Trump's campaign managerial team --- Carter Page, Richard Burt, and Paul Manafort --- questionably ties to Russian interests and, arguably, the Russian government. While Trump only appears to be a puppet of Putin's interference in a U.S. presidential campaign, his role helps reveal the true endgame of this latest game of Russian roulette.

"People don't want to hear this, but Russia is playing us. And Russia doesn't give a flying crap about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. They are aiming for chaos and revolution in our streets, and that's why they attacked Hillary Clinton.

The mastermind behind Russia's chaotic goal in the West is Aleksandr Dugin, a key advisor to Putin.

"I want you to understand that Dugin is a very important guy. He believes, in his own words, Hitler didn't go far enough and that we have to cause chaos all over the world to break the system so a greater Hitler can come and play a role, and we will cobble fascists together all over the world. He is the guy in 1999 that said in the international press, 'In the next decade, America will break apart into five parts. It's going to head into revolution. And I know this because we have people in place'" Glenn said.

Putin's ultimate goal is to rebuild the Russian empire following the advice of Aleksandr Dugin, a very dangerous man.

"We'll have more on this next week. This is more important than anything we ever did with George Soros. This is very important," Glenn said.

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!"
