Is #Thor2016 a Pipe Dream?

Is he in or is he out? Best-selling author Brad Thor has floated the idea of a third party candidacy (egged on by a few conservative radio voices). Could #Thor2016 happen? Thor joined The Glenn Beck Program on Thursday with an update.

"Brad, I wanted to get you on because Stu is very excited. He's had butterflies in his stomach all morning," Glenn said.

Could Brad Thor have been the candidate Glenn's co-host Stu envisioned for his recent #Bailout2016 plan?

"Well, I mean, I was very interested. We're talking about major developments in the presidential campaign," Stu replied. "The proposal is to go through deep red states that Donald Trump, you know, will have without even showing up and campaigning one time, and run someone who is actually conservative to give us a third option, should the vote go to the House."

Donald Trump is not likely to do well in deep red states. Utah is one of the target states where Trump is within a few percentage points of Hillary, and a conservative candidate should be beating Hillary by a landslide in Utah.

"I used to live in Utah. I lived in Utah for eight years. I love Utah. I would crush Donald Trump in the state of Utah," Thor said.

"So, Brad, I have to know this because you were online last night, and you were making a big deal about running for president. I have to know, are you serious or not?" Glenn asked.

Thor posted this interesting message to Facebook on Wednesday, with his first "campaign commercial," a remix of Ronald Reagan's 'Yes, We Can' speech.

"I listened to the show yesterday, when you had Erick Erickson on, and while I think Stu's idea is fantastic and doesn't take votes away from Trump and it actually takes certain states out of play, I don't think you'd ever get the Congress to vote for anyone other than Hillary or Clinton. You couldn't even get a roll call vote for the rules at the RNC convention. I don't think they would decide it based on who's the third-party candidate," Thor said.

Our cowardly Republican Congress would not likely vote for a third party candidate. So where does that leave Thor?

"Libertarians are on 36 of the 50 state ballots. They're working on the last remaining ones. If we're really looking for an alternative, there's a lot not to like about Gary Johnson, but we're not going to get the perfect candidate because I'm not running," Thor confirmed.

"Wow. So you are officially copping out after getting everybody excited last night?" Stu asked. "I think I actually took you seriously, Brad. Are you saying you're playing with our hearts?" Stu asked.

It turns out #Thor2016 was just a pipe dream.

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."
