Glenn Beck: Who makes more than Big Oil?

GLENN: Did he ever do private business? Dan, do you know? Did John McCain, was he ever in private business? Joe, you would probably know this. Look it up.

DAN: I don't think so.

GLENN: I don't think he was. I think he went from didn't he go right from the military right to congress? So there is a chance that he didn't understand how the economy works because he's always been in government. But this is his quote yesterday. Quote: I don't like the obscene profits that are being made anywhere and I'll be glad to look not just at the windfall profits tax. That's not what bothers me. But what we should look at is any incentives that we're giving people or that industries or corporations that are distorting the market.

Do you have the clip? Play this.

McCAIN: I don't like obscene profits being made anywhere and I'd be glad to look

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. He doesn't like obscene profits being made anywhere. Is anyone talking about the hedge funds? Is anyone talking is anyone in congress talking about the hedge funds? You know why? They are not talking about the hedge funds because the hedge funds give them all kinds of money. The hedge funds, these guys Chelsea Clinton works for a hedge fund. John Edwards worked for a hedge fund. Al Gore works for a hedge fund, owns his own hedge fund. Nobody wants to talk about hedge funds. You want to talk about obscene profits. Now, I don't believe this is an obscene profit. I really don't. I think if you can make this kind of a profit, God bless America. God bless America. But here's their profit margin. Their profit margin in hedge funds is 87%. 87% profit margin. That is printing money. So you want to talk about an obscene profit margin, there it is. Again, as a capitalist I say God bless you. But that is ten times the profit margin of oil. Oil's profit margin is about 8.5%. This is ten times the profit. Why are we going after them? How about healthcare facilities? 48%. Publishing, periodicals, magazines is 34%. Information delivery services, 23%. Silver is 22%. Application software industry is 22%. Shipping, 21%. Well, not anymore. Copper is 19%. Tobacco products, 19%. Drug manufacturers, 17%. Insurance brokers, 16. Beverages, wineries, distilleries, 15%. Long distance carriers, 15.8%. I mean, railroads, railroads, 13.9%. Steel and iron, 13.8. Cigarettes, 13.7. Integrated circuits, semiconductors, 13.6. I mean, the list goes on and on and on and on. Money center banks, 10.8. Hotel/motels, 10.6. Asset management, 10.5. Beverage, Brewers, 10.5. Resorts and casinos, resorts and casinos are 10.5. Casinos are 10.5. Oil is 8.5. I mean, when a casino makes 10.5 and a hedge fund makes 81.7, you've got to ask yourself what's an obscene profit margin. Why aren't you going after those guys? That's not the way this system works, and as soon as America figures this out, these guys are toast. When America figures out and I really believe, I believe that she will. Here's why. Here's why I have more optimism than ever before. These you know these tours always give me faith. Getting out of New York City always gives me faith. Going around the country and talking to as many people as we do. You know, we had another sold out show last night, we've got another show tonight in Portland, Maine. You know, I listen to these crowds and I listen, you know, in the first two shows because it was down in the South people were shouting stuff out and I could hear it. I mean, I could hear the frustration and I could hear the answers. The answers are there, and for the first time this is why I have more faith because for the first time I believe that the people who are normally slugs and don't say anything, they are starting to shout those answers out. They are starting to say that's not the way it works! And they are starting to get involved more than ever before. And I just don't think I think people are going to be asking questions this time, and conservatives, conservatives, not Republicans, conservatives have the answer, and the answer is not to take these oil companies and pound them into the dirt. It is to give them tax incentives to go find it. It is for congress to stay the hell out of the way. When that happens, we'll have a return to sanity. But you know what? I read the front page of the Wall Street Journal today and I have to tell you, inflation is going up. Do you know, what was the country that I said inflation went up, doubled overnight? In India, went from 4 to 8% inflation in two days! And they're all blaming it on the United States of America.

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."
