Did Kaine's Debate Plan Include Being the Most Obnoxious Man on Earth?

A clear winner emerged during last night's presidential debate, and it had everything to do with style over substance.

"Pence blew him out of the water, just on presentation," Glenn said Wednesday on his radio program.

Co-host Pat Gray agreed.

"Just crushed him," he said.

Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, who wore a red power tie, presumably to match Hillary's red power pantsuit, came off as pushy and rude.

"You know what? Their ties said it all, just like the last debate with the presidents," Glenn said.

Maybe Kaine should have worn a different color.

Read below or watch the clip for answers to these colorful questions:

• Was Kaine's plan to be most obnoxious man on planet earth?

• How many times did Kaine interrupt Pence?

• What's the one thing Pence did that Glenn found problematic?

• Did Pence score points for Donald Trump?

• Why is fact-checking different now than in the 1800s?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Okay. Tim Kaine. Ooh. Wow. I don't know what his plan was, other than to be the most obnoxious man on planet earth.

PAT: Good plan. Good plan.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

JEFFY: He tried. He tried.

GLENN: Yeah, he interrupted 70 times.

PAT: Somebody counted? Seventy times!

GLENN: Seventy times in 90 minutes.

PAT: Oh, my --

JEFFY: It was really bad.

GLENN: It was so annoying because you couldn't understand anyone.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And the moderator kept saying, "Senator, senator, stop."

PAT: Oh, at times it was just a cacophony of sound. Because she was trying to get control. Neither of them would let her. So it was all three of them at the same time yakking, and so you got nothing.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: He came off as a complete jerk. Both of them -- and, you know what, their ties said it all, just like the last debate with the presidents.

Their colors said it all. Tim Kaine was wearing a red tie. The red denotes power and strength, and I'm not a pushover.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Because the Trump campaign is viewed as bullies and not credible, he was wearing a blue tie. Same with Trump. And Clinton was wearing a red pantsuit. Okay?

So Kaine was trying to show, "I'm forceful, I'm not a pushover. I'm not -- stupid. Stupid. Because that's not who Mike Pence is. Mike is not a bully. He's not. And your candidate up at the top of the ticket is just as unlikable for half the country.

PAT: At least.

GLENN: They both needed to be reasonable.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They both needed to be, "Don't worry, America. We're not babies. We're not little kids fighting it out." And that's exactly how Kaine looked. He looked like a school yard bully. And Pence rose above it.

STU: You know, some of the analysis afterwards was basically saying that Pence won the debate, but he won the debate for Pence.

JEFFY: Yes.

STU: He was not able to score points for Donald Trump.

GLENN: No.

STU: While Kaine just came out and while Kaine lost it for Kaine, he was able to get a lot of the points that Hillary's campaign would want out there.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.

JEFFY: That's true. I found myself looking -- watching Pence going, "Yes, I like you. Oh, that's right, you're there for Donald Trump."

STU: Yeah. He would be a much better presidential candidate.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: This would be a totally different conversation, a totally different election if Pence was the actual--

GLENN: I will tell you, the thing I had a problem with, with Pence, and I thought he did really well, and I thought he won. But I had a really hard time with Pence because, you know, the one thing he had going for him was, he's an honorable guy.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: And he's trying to defend the indefensible.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: No, but he didn't try to defend it.

PAT: He just changed the subject. From the clips I heard --

GLENN: No, he claimed over and over again -- Jeffy --

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: He claimed he never said those things. He never said those things.

JEFFY: Come on.

GLENN: Mike, stop it. Stop it. We're not living in the 1800s. We could go back to the -- we could go back to the clips on YouTube.

PAT: That's what everybody does though, they just lie.

GLENN: They just lie.

PAT: And it works for them.

GLENN: And both of them did it.

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"

We've heard a lot about the 1776 Commission over the past several months. From the mainstream media, you've heard lies and slander: It was a racist panel put together by President Trump to peddle a whitewashed version of American history.

In reality, the 1776 Commission was established by President Trump in the fall of 2020 with the purpose of promoting "patriotic education." Not to mandate it, not to propose legislation – simply to PROMOTE it. The media and academia lost their minds over this now controversial idea that we should teach young Americans to appreciate the nation they've inherited. And predictably, just hours after Biden took the oath of office, he signed an executive order to dissolve the 1776 Commission, calling the commission's report "offensive and counterfactual."

Glenn Beck presents the 1776 Commission's report in its entirety, because unlike the media and President Biden who want to hide it from you, Glenn wants you to seek the truth and celebrate Independence Day with pride.

Watch a preview below or catch the FULL, 5-part presentation of the 1776 Report on BlazeTV.com or Glenn Beck's YouTube channel.
