GLENN: The morning show host at KSEV in Houston, Texas, our affiliate in Houston and my best friend, Pat Gray, welcome to the program, Pat, how are you?

GRAY: I'm good, how are you?

GLENN: Very good.

GRAY: You are on live right now.

GLENN: That's fantastic.

GRAY: Kind of cool.

GLENN: Yeah, we're glad to be on live in Houston and glad to have you on. Pat, tell me about the thought that you have on Barack Obama. Is there any way Barack Obama doesn't win this election?

GRAY: Oh, yeah, I think there's a way he doesn't win.

GLENN: Really? How?

GRAY: Well, we have to get the message out that the guy's a Marxist. I think that's the way he doesn't win. I don't think America

GLENN: Why do you use the old language of division?

GRAY: I know, isn't that horrible? That's just, that's it's insensitive. It's not loving.

GLENN: No.

GRAY: It just happens to be the truth and

GLENN: But it's the politics of division.

GRAY: I know.

GLENN: It's the using of the old labels.

GRAY: I know. It's a label that goes back to, well, I guess Karl Marx, doesn't it.

GLENN: Yes.

GRAY: And Vladimir Lenin when he finally put it into practice. So it is, it is old language but I think it's appropriate to resurrect it right now. With all the talk of collectivism and the common good and rich versus poor, I think it's appropriate. I think it's appropriate.

GLENN: I just had a guy on the phone from Portland. He is part of the morning show here and he is way, way liberal. He defected. Now we have Dan Boren of Oklahoma, the lone Democrat in Oklahoma's congressional delegation. He said that while Barack Obama has talked about working with the Republicans, unfortunately the record does not reflect working in a bipartisan fashion. He said he's the most liberal senator in congress, he has no intention of endorsing him for the White House. He is defecting. He's a Democrat and he's defecting from Barack Obama.

GRAY: Wow.

GLENN: This thing could this thing could implode.

GRAY: Wow, and I hope it does. Because, you know, that's exactly the point, isn't it? He's presented himself as the great uniter. When has he ever reached across the aisle to compromise, to not be quite as leftist as he's been known to be? Whereas, John McCain does it all the time.

GLENN: Yeah.

GRAY: And we see that all the time. And the uniter? No.

GLENN: John McCain is the Democratic nominee. You know what I mean?

GRAY: Yeah.

GLENN: He's the guy that the Democrats should have nominated. He is to the left but center left. He, you know, likes big government when he likes, you know, what they're doing, where conservatives are supposed to hate big government. Democrats like big government on certain things, and that's John McCain. He's the blue dog Democrat kind of President. He's not a Republican.

GRAY: Not in the least.

GLENN: And yet, but Barack Obama is the socialist party. We have a choice between a Democrat and a Marxist.

GRAY: Yeah, it's a pretty bad choice. Pretty bad choice and yet, like you said, that's the old way, that's the language of division, it's hatred. And we were told by Maureen Dowd in her column today that, you know, we've got some sort of witch hunt or, what was it, kill the witch program going against his blessed wife Michelle right now. You are not supposed to notice she has never been proud of her country in her adult life. You are not supposed to notice her message of force and that Barack Obama's going to require and demand certain things of us. We're not supposed to notice any of that.

GLENN: Yeah, those are her exact words, too.

GRAY: Yes.

GLENN: That he will demand that you are involved.

GRAY: And require. And he will not allow you to go back to your life as you knew it. What? I still want to live in America. I don't want my President to be the czar or the king, to demand, require and not allow me to do certain things?

GLENN: Do you remember, Pat, when Michael Moore we both talked about this. We warned, both of us on the air: Democrats, you don't know what you're getting into bed with, you're in so much trouble. Remember, you and I, you and I were both talking about George Bush and I remember you saying to me, because I said, "Pat, I can't do the George Bush thing anymore." And you said, I am so far off that George Bush bandwagon. And we talked about it and you said, if you are going to say something, you better be careful because a lot of Republicans aren't there yet. And we talked about how do we bring Republicans, how do we say to conservatives, you know, look, you've got to wake up because people were just, they were in that herd mentality. They were in that, "Hey, we've got to stand together as Republicans." And that had to stop. And at the same time we had that conversation, we said the Democrats are being duped as well.

GRAY: Absolutely.

GLENN: And they just haven't woken up.

GRAY: Yeah, and how many rank and file Democrats want Marxist ideological in the White House? They don't.

GLENN: They don't.

GRAY: They just don't understand. They see the hope, the change, they see the charisma, they start chanting his name and passing out in the crowd but they don't listen to what he is really saying.

GLENN: Because he's not saying anything.

GRAY: I know it.

GLENN: His wife is saying it.

GRAY: Well, his wife is saying plenty and then his is your gates like, well, Chucky Schumer was saying yesterday how they want to take these profits and demand and require what to do.

GLENN: So does John McCain!

GRAY: I know.

GLENN: John McCain does, too. I mean, I John McCain didn't fly back to Washington to stop that. He didn't vote. Neither did Barack Obama. These guys are the biggest weasels I've ever seen. This country deserves so much more. How did we end with these two?

GRAY: And where, where are the giblets, where's the spine of any of the Republicans? Fortunately yesterday they had the nerve to stand up and say no to the windfall profit thing. You know, but the demonization of big oil continues and if they are allowed to take these profits and do with it what they choose, either put it into their own coffers or force oil companies to do certain things with them, you are going to see the oil supply dry up. I mean, not only are you not going to pay $4 or $5 a gallon for it, you are not going to have it. And then there's going to be a real problem in this country.

GLENN: I talk to Ben Stein today. You know, Ben Stein is a real optimist and he's a guy who's like, Glenn, we have been through tough times before. He's been trying to talk me out of the insanity tree for quite some time. He said to me today, he said, Glenn, you're not going to have oil. You won't have oil. If, if Barack Obama or John McCain gets in and they start taking apart these profits and taking them away and taxing and penalizing these oil companies, if that happens, you won't have oil. And then all bets are off.

GRAY: And this is on a profit margin of 4 cents a gallon. Yeah, they sell a lot. It's volume, volume, volume. They sell a lot of oil. So they make a lot of money. But it's 4 cents a gallon. The government's making 18 cents a gallon or more?

GLENN: Obscene profit, what about their obscene profit? They haven't done anything for it!

GRAY: Nothing, nothing. And yet big oil is the problem. What about big jewelry? Let's talk about the 3,000% markup of diamonds. When is congress going to go after big jewelry?

GLENN: No, I want to know, because profit margin is 8.5% for the oil companies. The breweries, the profit margin is 10.5 or 10.7%. I want to know when we're going to go after Budweiser, Cindy McCain.

GRAY: Yeah, that's going to happen.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, you bet that will. It helps when you're sleeping with the President, the possible next President of the United States. That's the ultimate insider. Thanks, Pat, we'll talk to you again.

GRAY: Bye.

GLENN: You bet, bye bye. Here's our number, 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK.


 

The 2020 Radio Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place on October 29, from 7 to 9pm ET, hosted by iHeartMedia's Elvis Duran. The ceremony will broadcast live on radio stations across the country, streamed via iHeartRadio, and on the SiriusXM Triumph Channel, and on Blaze Radio Network.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
