Korean peace: Either history will be made or we're being set up to be duped again

Does it kind of seem like everyone’s jumping the gun a little bit lately when it comes to North Korea? Now, don’t get me wrong, last week’s meeting between the two Korean leaders was historic, but it was hard to see it as anything more than a suped-up dog and pony show.

The two leaders shook hands while posing for cameras on each side of the border, and Kim Jong-un rode around in his limo with his platoon of bodyguards running ridiculously in formation around the car. Kim Jong-un pledged to denuclearize, shut down his nuclear testing facility, and even put an end to the seven-decade-long war.

It was a heck of a spectacle, but I fear it may be little more than just that --- a highly produced and choreographed show.

I woke up this morning and saw that the president of South Korea has called on President Trump to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on North Korea. Now I realize that presidents have been given that award for far less --- Obama received his for waking up that morning and brushing his teeth --- but we might want to tap the brakes a bit here.

I’m not diminishing what the Trump administration has achieved here, but South Korea is clearly engaging in a charm offensive. Look, I get it, if this whole thing goes south --- pun kind of intended --- South Korea would take the worst of it. They’re desperate, and for good reason, but we can’t let that manipulate us into making a mistake here.

I hate to do this, but I’m going to rain a little on this parade. Look, the North Koreans are smart. They should have fallen after they lost their benefactor, the Soviet Union, but they endured on. Somehow a country the size of PENNSYL-FRIGGIN-VANIA has been able to hold the attention of the entire world for SEVENTY YEARS.

It’s really kind of amazing. Ever since the fall of the Soviet Union, North Korea has held our attention by dangling its nuclear program like a worm on a hook. It even tempted President Clinton in the same way President Trump is being tempted now. Clinton gave in, dropping sanctions and providing humanitarian aid. He even sent Madeline Albright to meet with Kim Jong-il in the same way Mike Pompeo met with Kim Jong-un.

North Korea has promised a lot of things lately, but all that is moot until we hear what they want in return.

Those negotiations ultimately failed when it was found out that North Korea was continuing their nuclear program in secret. But in the end, they got what they wanted. Clinton dropped sanctions and gave relief. Their nuclear program continued.

North Korea has promised a lot of things lately, but all that is moot until we hear what they want in return. Nothing is free, and I fear that they’re going to ask for more than we’re willing to give. Never forget, North Korea is STILL North Korea. They haven’t changed. They’re still murdering their own people, and more recently Otto Warmbier, from within concentration camps. Two things are about to happen.

Either history will be made, OR the entire world is being set up to be duped --- AGAIN --- the same way North Korea has been manipulating the world and surviving for the last 70 years. Let’s pray that it's the former.

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."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
