Glenn Beck talks to Senator Saxby Chambliss


Saxby Chambliss


US Senator for Georgia

GLENN: Okay, now, we have Saxby Chambliss on the phone, the senator who is going to stand against the rising storm that is coming America's way. Senator, how are you, sir?

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Well, we're still bouncing off the walls, Glenn. What a great victory we had and thanks for your encouragement, your support and it was a great night last night, needless to say.

GLENN: Senator, I tell you, you know, everybody says that conservatives, you know, that movement is dead when Barack Obama wins by a couple of points but when you run against a straight-up progressive and you win by 14 points, I don't hear anybody saying this is a rejection of progressive ideas.

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Kind of amazing, isn't it? Our campaign was focused, Glenn, around the basic core principles that Ronald Reagan taught us. We talked about lower taxes versus the guy who wants to raise taxes and has a history of doing so about somebody who wants to decrease the size of government versus somebody who's going to support all of Obama's initiatives that wants to grow the size of government. All of those basic rights that we have like Second Amendment rights that have the potential to be infringed on. When we talk about these issues, it really resonated with people all across Georgia. We had a great turnout and a big victory on basic conservative principles, and I hope we take something away as a party from this particular runoff.

GLENN: I don't -- you know, that leads me to my question because I don't think that the party gets it yet. I really don't. I mean, they are a party that tries to distance themselves from Sarah Palin. You saw how popular she is down in your state.

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: She is electric. She brought just all kinds of people to us, you know, whether it was Joe the plumber types or folks sitting in their coats and ties. She just packed every house we were in. On Monday we had four different stops around the state and when she walks in the room, there's an electricity you just can't believe.

GLENN: Yeah. Do you think the Republicans are going to get it? I mean, I heard you say yesterday, you said, "I'm going to be the 41st senator to stand up against, you know, gun rights being taken away," et cetera, et cetera. Do you really think we've got 40 other Republicans, Senator? I'm just so afraid. I mean, if you are a student of history, I'm sure you are, you know that during the Great Depression when going tough and they were promising free bread and free everything to people, I mean, the Republican party was called the "Me too" party because there were a lot of people that just defected and said, "Yeah, yeah, me, too, I'll do that, too." I mean, do you think you are going to be able to hold 40 together on some of the big issues of the day?

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: You know, Glenn, I think that having 41 and hopefully we're going to have 42 if my buddy Norm comes through but having that tighter margin I think is going to give us an opportunity to go to some of our moderates who have not always voted with conservatives and say, look, you know, this is the opportunity we have to define our party, this is the opportunity we have to ultimately move back in the majority. If we don't stick together, then it's over. Our movement's going to be delayed and delayed. But if we do stick together and then what you're going to find in your state where you're elected as a moderate, you are going to find folks rallying around you. Whether we can do that and sell that to them, I don't know. But I think it does give us the opportunity to do that.

GLENN: I was just reading a statement from Citigroup today. It was an internal statement that came out about the price of gold and what's happening in the rest of the world and they're saying now that governments are throwing the kitchen sink at this and the gamble is going to likely end in one of two extreme ways: Either resurgence of inflation -- and I believe they are talking about massive, massive inflation, possibly hyperinflation -- or a downward spiral into Depression, civil disorder, and possibly wars. They are talking in this internal memo that the world will not go back to normal after -- and I'm quoting -- after the magnitude of what has been done. When the dust settles, this will either work and the money they have pushed into the system will feed through in inflation shock or it will not work because too much damage has already been done. They talk in this internal memo from Citigroup about how AAA-rated countries, people are starting to doubt the sovereign debts. We're a AAA rated country. They are talking about China moving their reserves from 600 tons of gold to near 4,000 tons of gold which means they are going to -- quoting the article -- they will have to diversify away from paper currencies, which is us. Senator, how much trouble is this country in?

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Well, there's no question but what we are in a huge financial crisis, Glenn. I think we've known that.

GLENN: Is it becoming clearer to you or is it becoming clearer to the American people that this is not -- I keep hearing people on CNBC and everything else saying, "Well, we'll probably roll out of this by the end of next year or maybe into the..." they just are the same people that just admitted that we've been in a recession for over a year. Do you think people are starting to get a handle on how enormous this thing is?

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Yeah, I really do think they are. I mean, when you look at the automobile industry, what they are asking for, when you look at cities and counties around the country coming forward now and asking for what they're asking for, who's next? I mean, the folks in the small town America, the small business community knows and understands how tough it is out there and, you know, they can't come forward and ask for a handout, but they know it's tough. And when they see the big boys doing this and they realize what's going on in their world, then I think reality is starting to set in that this situation is not just about Wall Street, it's not just about Main Street, it's about the whole world.

GLENN: But see, that's -- but we're getting to a point to where people are going to say, "Well, what about me?" And half of the population is going to mean that, meaning "I want my free stuff" and the other half of the population is going to be screaming, "Don't you dare give any more free stuff; I want my money to be worth something." Who wins in that debate with the makeup of congress in the White House?

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Well, obviously this next administration's going to have a lot of challenges but the first one is going to be to figure out what direction we go in from the standpoint of how we address this crisis. Do we go in a direction of providing more free handouts or do we give the free market an opportunity to work. That's going to be the first decision they are going to make and if they decide anything other than letting the free market work, then Glenn, I'd say we're in a real mess for maybe a decade to come. And even with the free market working, it's going to be very tough.

GLENN: Senator, I'm up against a break. Thank you and congratulations. We're counting on you, Senator.

SENATOR CHAMBLISS: Glenn, I appreciate 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."
