Glenn Beck: $4 gas

GLENN: National average of gasoline now $4 a gallon for the first time in United States history, $4 a gallon. I'd like to thank the environmentalists. No, congratulations on that. Because you've made it such a pain in the butt to make a refinery or to drill for oil all for the sake of saving the plants and the animals, we're paying out the nose for gasoline. Awesome job. No, seriously. We have you to thank. And thank you. I love you more than life itself. I do. Now the rattlesnakes are free to roam, those grounds that nobody would walk on because they're full of rattlesnakes. God forbid we build a refinery there, start pumping out some much needed oil. No, no, no. Now you're free to go across that wasteland and stumble into a rattlesnake and you'll get that warm and fuzzy feeling inside because you know that you're willing to pay just as much for your car as you do for gas on a monthly basis, so that cute little slimy, slithery fella can live. Of course, that warm feeling, that might become it's more likely that it's just because the rattlesnake just ripped its fangs into your legs and the poisonous venom is now attacking your body but you'll probably be dead in 20 minutes or so but it will be a fast death. Mr. Rattlesnake was there. You can see him as you slowly close your eyes and say, it was all worth it. $4 a gallon. They say it could be as high as $5 a gallon. Gas DEET prom today say they are expecting oil by 2009 to be $250 a barrel. Yeah, yeah.

You know, here's the thing America needs to understand. You've got to start speaking up. You've got to take the stupid polar bear head off. If you are standing on a corner street right now saying save the polar bear, you need to get out of the polar bear suit and start speaking up. Right now people in Washington are not hearing you. The only ones, the only solutions that I'm hearing are the ones that are going to make it worse. Take the profits, that's what they're talking about today in congress, taking the profits from the oil companies. We've tried it before. It makes things much, much worse. They are talking about cap and trade, the EPA says it will increase the cost of gasoline $1.50 per gallon. What is it going to take for America to speak up? What's it going to take for America to grab a pitchfork? How about this? How about the rapidly approaching lifestyle of the Frenchy French men? Because that's where we're headed. I can't believe it. As everybody else is headed towards us, we're headed towards the French. The French have been paying high gas prices for years and look what it's done for them. No, seriously. They can drive mopeds instead of cars. When they do drive cars, it's Le car. That's so clever, isn't it? Seriously don't you wish General Motors would have thought of something and called it The Car? That just shows deep thinking. Well, it can only come from people who just, you know, don't understand the concept of a shower. I think the French, the only time that they get into a shower is when they are driving their mopeds and the rains. Is that really the lifestyle we want to live, really, the French lifestyle? Just like the French, we're all getting drunk all the time because of crappy lives, eating bread, not showering and riding mopeds everywhere. I mean, who doesn't want to get drunk after that? I mean, you wake up every morning going, geez, I'm French. Just like the French, our greatest achievement, because we're all jobless, drunk and have nothing better to do, we'll be throwing splotches of paint on a canvas and putting it in a giant building to look at which everyone has time to do because we're jobless, and the paintings look great because we're all drunk. And so just like the French will become angry, smelly, inferiority complex little socialist rodents.

I don't understand the socialist movement here in America, I don't. It's a sad but true fact that at least in the U.S. people are generally against socialism until it benefits them. And then all of a sudden they are like these social all of a sudden they are like, oh, no, Mao, love Mao, he's great. "Socialism, boy, that stinks. Boy, that's but I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance." It's amazing to me the idea of socialism is picking up steam here. People are actually starting to call themselves socialists, like that's a good thing. Look what socialism has done to every other country that has dabbled in it. Not only the healthcare systems, blow chunks. I mean, I was in reading in USA Today, the front page of the paper today talks about how police forces are cutting back on, you know, going around in their cruisers because they can't afford the gas. That's not good. What do you think's going to happen when they control healthcare? Not only do their healthcare systems suck but if it's a country that has dabbled in socialism, gas prices soar, huge unemployment rates, lastly, last importantly, miserable human beings to be around them. No, they are. They are just miserable human beings. Think about it.

Do you remember when you finally moved out on your own? I mean, even if your parents were great, wasn't it nice to taste freedom, start living your own life, live in your own apartment? Then once you were out on your own, you got out of your own way. I mean, if you desperately needed help, your parents, if you were lucky my weren't because they couldn't afford it. They were there for you. But my parents couldn't afford it. I wasn't that lucky. I had to make my own way and even if I was in trouble, they couldn't help me. I think the government should do the same thing. Get the heck out of my way. Help me if I absolutely, positively need it but not to make it easy.

Under socialism it's like having a parent that just won't let you go. Imagine your parent running your bank account. Imagine your parent saying, no, no, no, honey, that's not going to do it. Telling you where your money should go, telling you exactly what to eat at the time, telling you exactly what you need to do, what kind of car you drive, setting all kinds of limits: Make sure you're home at this time. How about if they still hadn't taken you off their healthcare plan or they were in charge of your retirement and you had no choice in the matter? Wouldn't that be sweet? No! You'd be miserable, just like the French... that smell.

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."
