GLENN: Oh, jeez. All right, here's our number, 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. What we're going to do is we're going to do a draft pick, and you can pick your candidate. Are we just doing Obama today or are we doing Obama and McCain?

STU: I think we'll do Obama. Supposedly his pick is going to come tomorrow or the next day.

GLENN: So you get to pick, obviously the first one in, you know. You get the pick of the litter, and the one who picks the candidate that Obama picks, we'll give you something from the web store.

STU: I'm going to lobby here for the listeners. I know you don't care about

GLENN: One of everything from the web store? One of everything?

STU: Now I'm lobbying against you and against the listeners. It should be something in between.

GLENN: What a flip flopper. I don't care. You put the package together. They can pick whatever they want.

STU: It should be a good package.

GLENN: Fine, fine.

STU: Why are you trying to shut down the listeners?

GLENN: I'm saying give them one of everything from the website. I don't really care! Holy cow.

STU: They are picking the vice president of the United States potentially.

GLENN: No, Obama is. McCain's not, by the way. He's not picking the vice president. He's been picking the vice presidential nominee but not the vice presidential vice president, he's not.

STU: Polls are within 2 points.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Who knows what could happen. Let's

GLENN: When those Republicans pull out, you know, stuff out of their dirty tricks bag.

STU: Well, Glenn, luckily for the Republicans, everyone's so racist or this wouldn't be close. I tell you.

GLENN: Boy, you aren't kidding. Boy, the racism here in America.

STU: Did you notice his name is funny? It's still funny.

GLENN: Do you know I pulled out a dollar yesterday and I just looked at it. I was looking at Barack Obama on TV and I was going to pay something and I pulled out a dollar and went (gasping), he doesn't look like the guy on the dollar bill!

I know that happened just yesterday, but it happened the day before and it will probably happen tomorrow, too. I just, because I forget. I'm like, that guy's running for President. (Gasping). He doesn't look like the guy on the dollar bill! Here's our number, 888 727 BECK. Who do you choose as the vice presidential nominee for Barack Obama? Remember, this is going to be tough. Think like Obama because if you pick what he picks, you win. 888 727 BECK.

(OUT 9:41)

GLENN: All right. We go to John in New Hampshire for the how do they do this in the sports world? You should do this because I don't

STU: You have to do it in the same way every time because the commissioner always says it the same way every time. So it's like with the first pick of the 2008 Barack Obama vice presidential draft

GLENN: No, it's got to sound more boring than that. Aren't they usually a little more boring than that?

STU: I can do it more boring. Would the first pick of the 2008 vice presidential draft for Barack Obama, John from New Hampshire selects...

CALLER: Yeah, Glenn. Hillary Clinton. Because if he's going to if he's going to win, he's got to have her base.

STU: Wow, that's a shocking first pick.

CALLER: It's a good first pick.

STU: I don't know. You think?

GLENN: It's not going to happen. You're listening to John? You talk about John after we say goodbye, John, it's great to talk to you, then he goes away and we're safe.

CALLER: Well, I'm a Republican. So I'm hoping that he goes with Hillary.

GLENN: You know what? What is she trading on

DAN: She's trading at 10 and the leaders, Biden is at 30.

GLENN: You know what, here's the reason why he's not going to pick Hillary Clinton. Because the secret service can't watch both of them. You know what I'm saying?

CALLER: Yeah, but if they're trying to get the other one whacked, it will be all right.

GLENN: That's exactly right. Look, if I'm the President and Hillary Clinton is my vice president, I immediately say to the secret service: By the way, I need a taste tester and I need to know that you're one of the secret service that worked in the White House before and hated Hillary Clinton. I need a taste tester. And forget about I'd go out in crowds, yeah, whatever, I got that handled; keep an eye on her, will you, and him. He's got a lot of time on his hands.

CALLER: But it's change for the children. So it will be okay.

GLENN: Change for the children, thanks a lot, John. Oh, we need to get John's

STU: We're getting information as we go.

GLENN: All right. Ralph in Delaware.

CALLER: Glenn, thank you for taking my call.

GLENN: Hang on.

STU: The second pick of the 2008 Barack Obama vice presidential draft, Ralph of Delaware selects?

CALLER: Ralph would like to first thank Glenn for the speech he gave at the NRA convention. It was one of the most wonderful speeches I ever heard. Nancy Pelosi.

GLENN: I like him. Who? What? Nancy Pelosi? Are you out of your mind?

STU: The second pick?

CALLER: It's a left field pick.

GLENN: It's a very, very left field. It's so far left

CALLER: It would ensure a Republican victory.

GLENN: What? All right, Ralph, thanks a lot, man. It kind of you know, he starts out with, hey, I'm a big fan and that speech made more sense than anything. It's Nancy Pelosi, she's come on! Who would give a compliment and then take it away with a Nancy Pelosi draft pick!

STU: Excellent point.

GLENN: All right, let's go to Ken in New York.

CALLER: Tim Kaine.

STU: We didn't do the intro. Don't you guys understand how drafts work? With the third pick of the 2008 vice presidential Obama draft, Ken from New York selects?

CALLER: Tim Kaine because he puts Virginia in play unfortunately.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I think that's that's my pick for him. I know everybody's going with Biden and everything else. I go with McCain only because of who's the guy? Indiana?

STU: Bayh.

GLENN: He needs Indiana you know, he needs these states that don't usually, you know, vote crazy.

CALLER: We have one in Virginia. So I'm afraid he could pull Virginia out and that's scary, but keep up the good work.

GLENN: Thanks, man, I appreciate it, Ken. Tim Kaine, how's he doing on InTrade?

DAN: Tim Kaine is actually, he's down at, like, 22. But the State of Virginia is actually 51.5 to 48.5. So that's

GLENN: For winning for

DAN: The Democrats are ahead. So that would probably you know.

STU: Well, you know, Kaine, it's one of those things, you try to pick somebody who's going to get you a state but you don't want to get somebody

GLENN: Who's going to hurt you. That's the problem with him. It's the dynamic duo of inexperience. It's like, I don't know, I've been here for three months, I can't even find the light switch, I don't even know where that is.

STU: If you have a guy who comes out and, you know, the possibility of Barack Obama not doing a good job, you never know. There could be an impeachment because, you know, he's not qualified or doesn't, you know isn't experienced enough. Then who is your backup? You are going to another guy who's

GLENN: Wait a minute. I'm just trying to get my arms around this. You think there's a possibility of impeachment?

STU: I didn't say there was a possibility. What else? You are picking a vice presidential candidate based on the fact that the President wouldn't be doing the job anymore. There's several scenarios. I highlighted one of them because I don't feel like talking about the others.

GLENN: I'm sorry, so riddled with ADD. I just heard you thought there might be a possibility of impeachment. Let me ask you this. No, that was a good point you made.

STU: I know it is. If you would listen to it, you would understand.

GLENN: You just go on and on, I can't do it very long.

STU: Where is your medicine? Can you start taking your medicine again?

GLENN: Here's the thing. Here's the thing. Have you, have you thought about this. Pick between these two. Which do you think and I'm not saying that this is I'm not saying this is high probability. I'm just asking, in the world of probability, which one do you think is more likely in an Obama campaign, that he's impeached or he declares himself, you know, President under really difficult conditions and I'm going to relinquish this presidency as soon as I can?

STU: As soon as I get around to it?

GLENN: Yeah. Which one? That he's more likely to become Mussolini or more likely to be chased out by congress? Which one?

STU: I don't think that

GLENN: I'm not asking you, I'm not saying that these have

STU: You can't let me get through thee words without losing attention.

GLENN: I know what you're going to say.

STU: What are you going to say?

GLENN: I'm not telling you. You know why? Because you're insane.

STU: I'm not insane. You think I'm insane because you only catch every sixth word.

GLENN: What? All right, what's your point?

STU: Now I'm not giving it to you.

GLENN: I don't want it. I didn't want it in the first place. Okay, I did. Tell me. Go ahead.

STU: I don't remember what it was.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

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.
