Rudy Giuliani Interview

Glenn: Rudy Giuliani, welcome to the program, sir.

Mayor Giuliani: How are you, Glenn?

Glenn: I am so sorry for the problems of getting you on the air today.

Mayor Giuliani: Not at all.

Glenn: I know you're a busy man in Florida. How are you feeling?

Mayor Giuliani: I feel terrific. We're getting out to pump and doing everything we can to pump up the vote and get people out.

Glenn: Tell me what you think this million people who have already voted and they voted early, what do you think that's going to mean for you, in comparison to the polls?

Mayor Giuliani: I think we're going to come in with a lead and I think our job today is to get out the rest of the votes. We've been campaigning here all during that two-week period of early voting. We've been concentrating on the places where we thought we would get the maximum vote. We're pretty satisfied. We did that well. So, we think we're going to really surprise people today.

Glenn: Are you frustrated at all that America has such a short attention span that -- I just saw a report yesterday, they said, well, people aren't thinking about the war on terror and so maybe that explains Rudy Giuliani. I'm thinking, now, like that war on terror thing, these never going to rear its ugly head again. Are you frustrated that people just don't focus on --

Mayor Giuliani: Well, I think it's almost understandable. I mean, it has been a while. Things are going pretty well. You know, you look at Iraq, maybe the reality is that some of the success in Iraq has taken some of the attention off of it, but it's good there has been success in Iraq. I thank God for that and it's time to switch to the economy and we've got a very strong record on the economy. I'm the only one of the republican candidates who's actually turned an economy around and turned it around with the with kind of pro-growth principles that we're talking about for America. The largest tax reduction in American history, one page tax form, reducing government spending. Those are all the keys to economic progress.

Glenn: What do you think about in the State of the Union last night, President Bush said I'm going to sign an executive order tomorrow where he's saying, I'm going to get rid of all these earmarks unless they're debated on the floor and voted on the floor, I'm going to make sure has no Federal agency actually spends any of that money and I thought, gee, if you can really do that, why didn't you do that before?

Mayor Giuliani: Yeah. I'm not sure I know exactly how that can be done. The reality is, I think he's talking about if it hasn't been actually designated clearly enough, but if it's passed --

Glenn: He said it was -- he said if it was in -- if it was put in during committee and not actually voted for on the floor, he said he's now going to be able to burry in. I thought, that would make the line item veto irrelevant. Why have we been arguing about the line item veto all this time?

Mayor Giuliani: The line item veto goes to something that's actually passed. Then you have to separate the -- so, I'm not sure I know exactly the technicality the president is talking about. It sounds like he's talking about something that actually isn't in the legislation but it's in some committee report.

Glenn: What would you do -- let me switch to the economy here for a second. What would you do with the people in Florida who got into bad loans and, you know, now they're sitting there and they're ready to lose their house? What do you as the President of the United States of the Federal government, what do you do?

Mayor Giuliani: I think we have what secretary parson has suggested makes the most sense, which is to urge lending institutions to be on a voluntary basis, where they can, where they can stretch it a little to see if they can give people more time to stretch out interest rates, but you can't mandate that because we've got a private economy and people make these deals and you kind of have to live with them.

Glenn: You know, the flip side of that, I mean, because honestly, mayor, when it comes to private versus public, I think you're one of the best candidates running. With that being said, though, I mean, you know, I've talked to some of the leaders of these major institutions. You have, too, I'm sure, these banking institutions. Jim Cramer was on television last night saying he believes this latest Fed cut is going to be shown to come after a phone call from a major U.S. bank says you don't cut that Fed rate today, we're going to close our doors today. We can't make it. You're not going to be able to float anybody because they're holding on by the skin of their teeth as it is.

Mayor Giuliani: I mean, the Fed has done a good job of dealing with this and it is a very difficult situation, but, I mean, the reality is the most important thing that can be done are these permanent changes like to the tax code, reduction of government spending. These are the things that pop up in economy and move it in the right direction, start to make it an economy that is moving because of the money in the private economy. When you think about it, when the Fed is lowering an interest rate, what it's doing is it's creating more liquidity. It's putting more money into the economy. The same thing happens when you reduce the tax except if happens from physical policy.

Glenn: Last year I saw the state of the union. They were talking about health care and about four people applauded when he says, We've got to get rid of these frivolous medical lawsuits.

Mayor Giuliani: I think that's one of the major overriding issues of the day, to deal with frivolous lawsuits. I think it creates a tremendous burden on our economy, a tremendous burden on health care, it creates all of this medicine, which is good medicine. It would be one of the most important things we could do. It, also, Glenn, would help the economy. A tremendous amount of money is taken out of our economy and a tremendous that is created by these frivolous lawsuits.

Glenn: But, you know as well as I do, mayor, that the special interest group on Capitol Hill with the attorneys is insane. How would you actually get that done?

Mayor Giuliani: How do you actually get it -- you've got to go to the American people. How you do it is go to the American people and get them on your side. Look what the American people did with the comprehensive immigration bill. That was all lined up to get past and the American people spoke and then many members of Congress who were in favor of it changed their mind. Well, think of the opposite way. You want to do tax reductions, you want to do permanent tax reduction, reductions in spending. You've got to go out and explain it to the people, get them on your side and have them become the levers that you need in congressional relations.

Glenn: What do you say to those people who are -- and we've seen it in polls, we've seen it in state after state -- who are now voting for who they think is going to win. They're voting for who's leading in the polls instead of going out and just making up their mind and saying, I don't really care, this is the guy I believe in? What do you say to those people?

Mayor Giuliani: Well, what I say is vote for the candidate you believe would be the best candidate. That's the way it should work. Apparently voters in New Hampshire didn't think that way. Otherwise, Obama would have won and not Hillary. Right? I think people do have their own minds. I think people of Florida understand this is a really important election for them. Our message has been very much focused on them for the last three weeks, including the need for tax reduction and the one page tax law and the national catastrophic fund, things like that. So, I think we're going to do well.

Glenn: Mayor Rudy Giuliani, thank you so much and --

Mayor Giuliani: Thank you very much. Talk to you soon.

Glenn: Best of luck to you. Bye Bye.

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."
