Glenn Beck: Drill here, Drill now

GLENN: Last night Newt Gingrich and I were up in Toronto and we spent a couple of hours together and Newt, I think, is one of the few guys that, A, gets it and, B -- Newt, I don't know if you noticed this but when they gave you the presentation last night, did you take it as kind of an interesting left-handed compliment the way you were -- at the phrased it as you are entertaining?

GINGRICH: Well, I think it shocked them because I assume they believe that conservative politicians have to be frightening, boring, and the fact that we're actually funny and some of our opponents are actually frightening I think was very unnerving to some people.

GLENN: It was -- you're very plain spoken. You say it like it is. I asked you last night if you thought that Jimmy Carter was an anti-Semite and I don't want to mischaracterize what you said but I walked away with the impression that you thought he was insane.

GINGRICH: Well, I think he's out of touch with reality and I think that he has a remarkably Carter-centric view of the universe and so he measures everything by him. And when the American people rejected it, it was a sign that they were wrong and he spent the last 28 years sadly but with great determination doing what he could to punish the people who hired him.

GLENN: So last night you were talking and Dick Gephardt, we were having a conversation about how, I couldn't believe -- has Dick Gephardt changed, Newt? He's reasonable.

GINGRICH: I don't think he was ever as liberal as the Democratic caucus and I think that he was under enormous pressure from his left wing, and I think his natural instincts are kind of a Missouri, middle American common sense approach. More liberal than me but much more realistic than the left wing of his caucus.

GLENN: Yeah, he was amazingly sane last night when it came to -- I mean, he was common sense when it came to global warming and when it came to oil. He pulled me aside before you arrived and he said, Glenn, I'm trying to put some people together in business and in oil and everything else. He said nobody in Washington is doing anything. And he said, we're facing one of the biggest crises we've ever faced as a nation. You said that last night. I've been saying that for a couple of years now. And he said nobody is doing anything. And then you arrive and you said the same thing.

GINGRICH: Right. Glenn, as you know that's why we've launched the "Drill here, drill now, pay less" petition drive at because we believe that the only way to get congress' attention is to get enough Americans who are fed up with the high price of oil to petition them to fundamentally change what they have been doing. We've had a 30-year policy of locking up American resources. We have the largest supply of coal in the world, 27% of the world's reserves. Our shale oil reserves in the Rocky Mountains are three times the size of Saudi Arabia and they are currently illegal because congress passed a law saying you couldn't get at them. The Brazilians just found two huge oil fields in the Atlantic ocean which makes Brazil energy independent from the Middle East. It is illegal to look in the Atlantic, it's illegal to look in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, it's illegal to look in the Pacific, it's illegal to look in northern Alaska and as I said it's illegal to get shale oil out of the Rocky Mountains and then our politicians vote to sue OPEC for fixing prices. Well, the people have done more damage to gasoline prices in America than anybody else is the U.S. congress.

GLENN: But they don't see that happening and next week they are starting to debate cap and trade which you know and I know, how many times have you seen, Newt, the government make an estimate of what it's going to cost the American people and have them overestimate what it was going to cost?

GINGRICH: Well, Boxer, Warner, Lieberman approach that they are going to bring up in the Senate next week should not be called cap and trade. It should be called "Raise prices and destroy jobs" because that's what it will do. It's going to raise the price of gasoline, it's going to raise the price of diesel fuel for truckers. It's going to raise the price of aviation fuel for an already ailing airline industry. It's going to raise the price of heating oil. It's going to raise the price of natural gas and it's going to raise the price of coal. Now, everybody who's listening to us today who thinks that makes senses, you ought to call and congratulate your congressmen. But if you think that is utterly irrational, you ought to go online at and sign our "Drill here, drill now, pay less" petition because we're trying to get the congress to understand that the country is way ahead of the congress and being sick and tired of relying on foreign dictators for high priced oil which is a threat both to our economy and to our national security.

GLENN: Okay. Here's the thing. I'm at right now and here it is. Here's the petition that you are asking people to sign: We therefore the undersigned citizens of the United States petition the U.S. congress to act immediately to lower gas prices by authorizing exploration of proven energy reserves and reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources from unstable countries.

You currently have 154,000 signatures. Let's see if we can get a few more signatures. It's with Newt Gingrich. Thanks, Newt.

GINGRICH: Thank you.

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."
