Election by Numbers: The Senate and Electoral College Edition

The latests numbers are in, and Dr. Stu was called in to deliver the tough news.

The Senate

"There are 36 Democratic senators that are locked in. They are not up for election," Stu said.

Of those up for reelection, nine are solidly Democrat. So Democrats have at least 45 seats locked in.

"For the Republicans, they start off with 30 seats locked in absolutely. And we have a bunch here that are in the solid Republican category. In fact, 11 of them total, including Mike Lee, by the way, in case you were in Utah and didn't know that. He's up by 30 in the most recent poll," Stu said.

So before getting to leaners and toss-ups, we've got 45 Democrats and 41 Republicans locked in.

"Okay, that's not good," Glenn said.

"It's close," Co-host Pat Gray said.

"Very close," Stu agreed.

"I don't like it like this, guys," Glenn noted.

When Dr. Stu figured in those candidates who lean left and those who lean right, what did it look like? Republicans have a solid shot at 48 seats and Democrats have a solid shot at 47 seats.

"The toss-ups are Illinois. That one right now is leaning towards the Democrats," Stu said.

There's also Pennsylvania, Nevada, New Hampshire and North Carolina.

"To get to 50 seats with a Trump presidency, you'd need two of those of the five. And to get to 51 in the Clinton presidency, you'd need three of the five," Stu sadi.

"We need three. We need three," Pat said.

"Oh, my gosh. Come on," Glenn lamented.

General Election & the Electoral College

"Now, this is important. When you give people the polls and they're like, 'Oh, Clinton is ahead.' Forget about it. It depends on the states," Glenn said.

Essentially, the general election is 50 state elections, and the winning candidate must secure 270 electoral college votes.

"So we've broken them in the same way --- solid Democrat, leaning Democrat, toss-up, leaning Republican, solid Republican," Stu said.

Stu gave 224 solid electoral votes to Democrats and 90 solid electoral votes to Republicans.

"Ninety!" Pat exclaimed.

"What?" Jeffy asked in disbelief.

"224 to 90," Stu confirmed.

Glenn, at this point, had passed out on the couch.

"You know what, if this happens, here's what I'm hoping for, I am begging the Lord that this is the lowest voter turnout of all time, or that people on both sides vote third party so one of them wins with like 25 or 30 percent so there's no mandate. If she goes in and it's a huge record turnout and she wins with a big margin, we are screwed," Glenn said. "What the hell are we doing?"

"He's not ahead in Florida. He's not ahead in North Carolina. He's not ahead in Nevada," Stu said about Trump.

"The GOP should pull all their freaking money and pour it into the Senate and the House. Seriously, what are you doing?" Glenn said.

"Call me a black rain cloud, but, again, the picture isn't terrible in the Senate. You can save the Senate," Stu said.

"Right. You've got to save the Senate and the House," Glenn agreed.

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.
