Glenn Beck: Disaster Fatigue?




Side note - Bizarre colorful (luminous/glowing) cloud phenomenon in the sky was reportedly observed about 30 mins before the May 12, 2008 Sichuan earthquake took place.

GLENN:  Why don't I feel worse than I do?  Why don't I feel, why don't I feel -- I mean, it's horrible.  It's horrible.  And I've seen the pictures and I, you know, I see the schools and I watch the devastation.  I've seen the devastation.  It looks like Nagasaki.  I mean, it's just, it's beyond comprehension and yet I don't feel -- it hasn't -- I don't know.  What is it?

STU:  That's the -- yeah, it's the question of which -- because I mean, I think we really felt the tsunami.

GLENN:  Yeah.

STU:  Like you obviously understand we're going to feel Hurricane Katrina more than we feel -- just because it's here and it's local.

GLENN:  You recognize it, you've been there.

STU:  Yeah.  But when you talk about a place across the world, you understand that for whatever reason -- I mean, some of them connect with people in America and some of them don't.

GLENN:  You know what?  Is this an excuse?  You know, to me it's like, what are you going to do?  What are you going to do?  The country, Myanmar, they won't even let anybody in.  They won't let anybody in to even help them.  I mean, what kind of -- I mean, jeez, you want to talk about the human race.  You know, the UN human rights, they are coming over to discover -- to do a study on racism.  They are coming in the next couple of weeks and they are doing a study here in America with eight different cities to see how racist we are in America.  Guess when the leaking is going to start coming out from that report.  I'm guessing October, November.  You think?  Yeah.  I mean, it's the UN trying to influence our elections here and they are going to talk about how horrible and how hating and race mongering we are.

STU:  Well, Glenn, they might not find anything.

GLENN:  Sure.

STU:  I'm sure they are just not going to find anything.

GLENN:  So anyway, they are worried about that.  You want to know, the human rights commission, they should be going after the government of Myanmar.  I mean, the world can help.

STU:  Right.

GLENN:  And so I feel -- you know, it's kind of like, I mean, what are you going to do.

STU:  I'll give you a pass on that because I mean, you are following the government of formerly Burma.

GLENN:  What do you mean I'm following the government?

STU:  You know -- well, I mean not as far as following, but you know the details that it's a really crappy government and it's blocking aid and you know this stuff because you followed it.  Do you think --

GLENN:  Isn't -- wait, wait, wait.  Because I honestly have not been following the stories.  You know, obviously I read.  You know, I read five newspapers a day.  So obviously I'm following it more than the average bear, but every story that I read is -- you know, has that in it.  So you don't think the average person knows it?  I don't watch television.

STU:  I think the average -- the furthest the average person gets into the story is the big black letters that say, you know, cyclone in Myanmar, and then they're gone.

GLENN:  So what is it?  What is it?  Do you know that we've only given about $12 million in aid as a people to Myanmar.  We've given $12 million in aid.  To give you some idea of what we have done in the past, the Asian tsunami we gave $1.92 billion in private charity, $1.92 billion.  We've given $12 million.  That's remarkable.

STU:  When it comes to, like, it's almost like a movie or something.  It has to connect with you.  You saw there was -- there was at least video of things happening and, you know, the big wave coming up with the tsunami and, like, a terrorist attack has that sort of --

GLENN:  Are you making the -- you're not trying to make the case that we need, like, teenage girls beating each other up in Myanmar to be able to care, are you?

STU:  I don't know what you mean.  I'm saying -- I'm talking about, like, the tsunami had all the waves and all the footage and then you hear the huge numbers.

GLENN:  Oh, I've seen footage.  I've seen footage just in what little -- I mean, --

STU:  Not on the media as much.  I mean, you've seen some.

GLENN:  Oh, come on.  The only television I see is here.  I've got televisions in my office and then we have --

STU:  Is this a serious point?  The only televisions you see are the three constantly on 24 hour news channels that are on front of you the entire show?

GLENN:  No, but I'm saying I'm not watching -- no, but I'm saying --

STU:  Of course you see it.

GLENN:  We do have eight there on the wall, and I have four here, yes.  But I'm not watching it.  I'm just glancing up at it.

STU:  Right.  But that's all you need.  I mean, most people --

GLENN:  But other people, the only footage I've seen of this, I've seen the footage of, like -- have you seen the footage of the hand, of the person?  I don't even know what it was, but it was like -- you didn't see that?

STU:  Yeah, was that the earthquake or was that --

GLENN:  I don't even know which disaster that was.

STU:  They're doubling up, too.  There's two big disasters at the same time.

GLENN:  You would think we would care more.  Why don't we -- I don't mean to be flippant on this.

STU:  I know.

GLENN:  Yeah, I don't mean to be flippant on this, but why doesn't this one -- why hasn't -- I can't be alone.  If we've only given $12 million, I can't be alone.  Is it that we are worried about our own economy and we don't want to give?  That could be.

STU:  Partially maybe.  But still --

GLENN:  These scare mongers, those people who are like, oh, freak out the economy; oh, you better prepare, you better save your food, those people are responsible.

STU:  They are responsible for both of the tragedies.

GLENN:  Bad people.  That's what they are.

STU:  But I mean, you know what, honestly look at Americans.  When's the last time, when it really comes down to it and you really need to do it and we really feel that we need to do it, we just do it.  We just come up with the money.  We figure a way to do it.  We go into debt.  I mean, we did this after September 11th.  We were all scared about the economy.  We still went out and bought DVD players because --

GLENN:  That was our patriotic duty.

STU:  I mean, yes.  I mean, at the time it was important.  We needed to get the economy going, and we did.  We went out and we spent.

GLENN:  In 2006 Americans gave more than $295 billion in charity.  Individual Americans, $295 billion.  4% of that went overseas.  That's a lot of money.  Is it just like, "Where did I leave my wallet."

STU:  We've overgiven?  I mean, we give more than anybody else by a healthy margin.

GLENN:  Really, honestly I expect -- I really do, I expect to hear a commercial.  You know, I think they should just start -- you know how television is such a very -- you know, it's an important factor.  Maybe we haven't seen enough or maybe they should just be a little more -- maybe we should try a different approach.

VOICE:  Hi, my name is Fred.  I'm in China.  Listen, I just wanted to drop you a line.  I don't know if you know over in America, but we just had this big earthquake over here and, like, buildings were falling and stuff and, you know, I know that stamps just went up.  Like, I know gas prices, they're high and stuff, but we haven't, like, seen any money.  I don't mean, you know, to be a pain or whatever but like, you know, like I don't know if it's just because we don't have YouTube pictures of, like, wave hitting a resort or whatever you need.  But if you could just -- I mean, I set up a PayPal account.  If you could just -- it's Fred@China.com.  I mean, we make all the crap that you guys use.  So if you could just -- you know, made in China.  If you could just send something, that would be -- you know, not to mention we're hosting the stupid Olympics.  So if you could just send something, some money, that would be great.  Thanks for your time.

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."
