Glenn Responds to Hollywood's Newfound Love of the Constitution

It was just a few short years ago that liberals released a video, pledging their allegiance to the president, not Congress.

"This came out right after President Obama was elected, and it scared many of us to the core because even George Washington warned against it. He was a guy who they wanted to make king, and he said, No man should serve more than two terms, and we do not pledge our allegiance to a president. I don't do it to Trump. I wouldn't do it to Reagan. I wouldn't do it to Obama. You don't do it. It's un-American," Glenn said on his radio program Thursday.

In an apparent change of heart, a group of Hollywood actors has released a video urging Congress to do its job and block the president.

Aside from the glaring hypocrisy, Glenn urged the left and the media to examine their approach and avoid inflicting further damage to the country.

"Because I know how the rhetoric feels," Glenn said. "I learned my lesson three years ago. It's not what I said. It's how I said it many times. And it makes people feel horrible. It makes them want to strike back."

Eight years ago (and four years ago), conservatives felt exactly the way liberals feel now: terrified. But there seems to be little realization of that on the left.

"How have you forgotten so soon?" Glenn asked.

GLENN: For months, I have been begging people on the left, "Please don't make the same mistakes that I made during the last two elections." I've talked to the New York Times about it. I've talked to Charlie Rose on -- I talked to NPR in one of the worst interviews done by the most unprofessional journalist I have ever encountered. I've talked to Rolling Stone magazine. I've talked to Samantha Bee. Why?

Because I know how the rhetoric feels. I learned my lesson three years ago. It's not what I said. It's how I said it many times.

And it makes people feel horrible. And it makes them want to strike back. Now, that's the way we felt for eight years. Now you're in that position. I've tried to remind you on the left what you were saying to me eight years ago.

How have you forgotten so soon? Do you remember how you felt in 2008 and 2009, when many of us on the right said, "We're really worried for the future of our country. We're worried that this president is gaining so much power, he could become a dictator. That we worried that a guy who had socialist or Marxist leanings and had been surrounded by actual communists his entire life and who shared his admiration for central principles of Marxism, like the redistribution of wealth, when he said those things during the campaign and then elected the president of the United States, we said, "Wait a minute he's espousing Marxist attitudes, something that is absolutely 180 degrees different direction than the Constitution and the founding of the United States." And what were you calling me? What were you calling people on the right?

You first called us racists. Then we were McCarthyites. Then we were on a witch hunt. Then we were crackpots. Conspiracy theorists. Why? Conspiracy theorists because I believe we're in such a fragile situation that the president of the United States could make a move on the global scale that could throw us into World War III, or he could make moves that would throw us into economic depression.

But that was a conspiracy theory. But now those are the things you're worried about. And there are people on the right who think those have all been solved. They haven't been solved. No man can solve these problems. Only the Constitution can solve these problems.

Now you're on the other side of it. And you're doing the same thing I did. You're making the same mistakes that I made. I want you to hear carefully: I do not take back a single concern that I had over the last 12 or 15 years. Not one.

But as I've said over and over again, the way I went about expressing those concerns didn't work. It made things worse.

And now you're doing it.

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."
