GLENN: Is that what it is? They are on sale now, bitter white man T-shirts at GlennBeck.com. Also, while you're there I'm asking you to buy Fusion magazine. And normally I don't make a hard sell on Fusion magazine. I just tell you what's in the upcoming issue but I would really like you to be a subscriber to Fusion magazine and it is a great, great issue. We have been working longer on this issue of Fusion magazine than anything else. I'm not kidding you. I was in the hospital at 3:00 in the morning. The deadline for the final adjustment was supposed to be the next morning. I'm there in the hospital at 3:00 in the morning with Joe and his laptop and we were still working on it. The doctor said, you can't work in the emergency room. I'm like, we have a deadline, I have a deadline I have to have. So we postponed the deadline for a couple of days, doctors orders. But the reason why I was doing that is because this is such a critical issue. This is our comparing John McCain and Barack Obama's policies to the words of the founding fathers, and Lorianne Updike is on phone. She is from the constitutional sources project and Lorianne, you guys have been instrumental in helping us put this together, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it and how great your service is. Tell me a little bit about what you guys do.

UPDIKE: Well, Glenn, we've created the first free fully annexed online library of constitutional sources. Essentially right now it's the founders' documents and how they relate to the Constitution. And we've done this so that everybody from the sixth grader to the Supreme Court justice can have access to our founders.

GLENN: Okay. And the amazing thing is if you are looking for -- because you can read and study the Constitution, you know, all you want but when you put it into context and you see the writings and the words of our founding fathers and what got them to write the actual words in the Constitution, it takes on a whole different flavor, doesn't it?

UPDIKE: That's right. You begin to see history unfolding before your eyes.

GLENN: So how do people use your service?

UPDIKE: Well, it's free. You go to www.consource.org. Anybody can get on. There's a couple of ways to get on. We've, of course, got a Google search. We've put things into collection for historians and we actually have a legal index for attorneys and those interested in making policy so that they can see every single clause of the Constitution and the documents that relate to it. Of course, you know, we have certain number of documents on the site and that's always growing.

GLENN: And your goal is to have everything the founding fathers ever did electronically available.

UPDIKE: Well, Glenn, it's not just the founding fathers. We're starting with article 1 and going all the way to amendment 27 which was passed in 1922. So our goal is to have all of the forces of the Constitution, reconstruction era amendments, you know, women's lib, right to vote, prohibition. But we also are starting to go back to antiquity. Some of our newest documents on this site are our constitutional precedents, things like the magna cart a, the may flower compact, the Articles of Confederation -- excuse me, the --

GLENN: Confederation?

UPDIKE: Confederation. One of the newest collections we're adding are drafts of the Constitution. Most people don't know but there was an internal publication of the Constitution on August 6th of 1787 during the Constitutional Convention and all of the delegates to the Constitution got drafts that they wrote their own notes on. There's one at the Library of Congress that Washington's written his own notes and the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia has Benjamin Franklin's and that's one of the reason why I think some of the importantness of this day and age of the Internet and Web 2.0 is that these things are everywhere. We found articles and manuscripts in Europe. There's hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of archives that have these documents and sometimes they're in attics. So it's only online that they can all be collected into one place.

GLENN: That's fantastic. Well, I so appreciate it, Lorianne. And you guys are actually writing kind of a summary of what each of these issues are for Fusion magazine, correct?

UPDIKE: That's correct, yes.

GLENN: And I can't tell you how much your staff and everybody involved in this month's Fusion has helped us out and how much it means to us and I think it really will make a difference and I thank you so much for it.

UPDIKE: Well, you're welcome. It's so wonderful to hear when I talk to your staff that they had already found consource on their own and it had been helpful.

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!"
