Virginia Elections Show How Divided We Are

Democrats won in key state elections around the country Tuesday night. On today’s show, Glenn looked at the election in Virginia and what it meant.

Virginians decisively elected a Democratic governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general, while in the Virginia House of Delegates, Republicans lost their majority.

Glenn pointed out that from a national standpoint, the key takeaway from this election is that “blue” voters are becoming more blue, and “red” voters are becoming more red. We are more divided than ever.

“The moderates and the middle ground are disappearing,” Glenn said. “The most eye-popping thing you will see on the map is that urban areas have turned so blue and rural areas have turned so red that it almost drains the red and blue cones from your eyes.”

GLENN: Armageddon came to the GOP in Virginia last night. Republicans got straight crushed as Ralph Northam defeated Ed Gillespie for Governor, and - probably more significantly - Democrats picked up TEN seats in the state legislature.

If you’ve been watching this on the news the past few weeks, you’d think that whichever party performed better in this election was going to win every election until the end of time. Democrats have lost every special election up until this point. They’ve done that despite pouring in record amounts of cash. Why was there so much hype on THIS election?

Gillespie lost, but that was just about as predictable as making the bold claim that the sun will probably rise in the East the morning after. With the exception of 2013, the sitting president’s party has lost EVERY Virginia gubernatorial election since Jimmy Carter! On top of that, Trump lost Virginia to Hillary and the state went to Obama twice. The narrative this morning is that this was the beginning of the end times for the GOP, but this would have been a MUCH bigger deal had the Democrats performed poorly. Republicans were SUPPOSED to do badly here.

There’s a much bigger story here. Virginia is a prime example of the increasing shift of people and states moving to the far fringes of the left and right. Red states are getting redder, and blue states are getting bluer. The moderates and middle ground are slowly disappearing. Virginia has been turning blue for a while, but the most eye-popping thing you see on the map is that urban areas have turned so blue and rural areas have turned so red, it almost drains the red and blue cones from your eyes. Where did the moderates go? This is a trend that will continue to pick up steam as people continue to shift further to the left and right. Consider Virginia, a state that just elected a governor endorsed by Planned Parenthood, elected their first openly transgender to the legislature and elected a self-proclaimed socialist.

The midterms are still a year away, and anything is possible. The GOP needs to either up their game or somehow try and get Hillary on every single ballot next year. Either way, whether you live in Blue country or Red country, get ready to move further in that direction.

COMING SATURDAY: Harvard Astronomer Makes Humble Case for Alien Life | Avi Loeb | Ep 95

Are UFOs real? Are we not alone in the universe? You're not a kook to ask those questions says Avi Loeb, renowned Harvard astronomer and author of "Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth" — especially in the face of new evidence discovered in 2017. Scientists at a Hawaiian observatory found an unexplained object in our solar system, moving so quickly that it could only have come from another star. Was it space junk, an asteroid, or a relic from a distant civilization? Avi makes the scientific case for why we should consider the possibility that it came from alien life. Glenn and Avi discuss how scientists have traded wonder for cynicism and robbed us of a true sense of curiosity. They challenge the academic snobs within the scientific community, and all of us to approach our existence in the universe with a little more humility.

Every time you open a closet in the Biden White House, another special interest skeleton tumbles out.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck opens the closet to reveal the major stakeholders who have their tentacles all over this administration. These stakeholders have begun to operate like oligarchs who have a deep financial or ideological interest in the actions and policies of government.

From the powerful investment company BlackRock to Big Tech, these American oligarchs have unprecedented White House access to help further their worldwide agendas. And their agendas ALWAYS take priority over we the people.

LAUGH: Glenn Beck takes Dr. Fauci's double-masking advice to heart

Dr. Anthony Fauci recently said that double masking "just makes common sense." But why stop there? If two masks are better than one, it only makes sense that 10 masks provide even more protection. In fact, the boxes come with 25 masks, so why not just wear all of them for good measure?

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere take Dr. Fauci's double-masking advice to heart.

DISCLAIMER: This video is meant as parody. Glenn still recommends wearing a face mask. (Obviously. He's wearing 25.)

Watch the video below (and try not to laugh):
