GLENN: The exploding bats I think we have to I mean, it's a very big problem, the wind turbines now, the environmentalists. And don't laugh. What's wrong with you people? It's not cool to laugh at exploding bats. The wind turbines, the environmentalists have come out and said you can't use wind power, it makes bats explode and it's not because they run into the blades. Those are birds that do that. What, are you happy killing the birds? Now, because of the change in the wind or something, it makes the bats' lungs explode.

Yes, Stu?

STU: It's like the bends, Glenn. You know the bends, when you're like SCUBA diving.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: And then you have the whole bends thing with the lungs.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: And they don't and then the that's what's happening.

GLENN: Do you know what country kills more bats than any other country on planet Earth? Think about, which country, which country which country cares the least about animals?

STU: The least about animals, that would be the United States of America.

GLENN: And do you have any evidence of that?

STU: Yeah. President Bush.

GLENN: Dick Cheney, Point 2, Dick Cheney, George Bush.

STU: Donald Rumsfeld.

GLENN: Let me give you those are all great answers, okay? But let me give you this for those who want to go the unnecessary. Even mentioning this kind of stuff after you've said George Bush and Dick Cheney, it's almost what did Keith Olbermann say? It's almost foolish to have to say it out loud. But let me go a step further, okay? What is the problem with bats? Why are the bats exploding?

STU: The wind power.

GLENN: Wind power. What country is the number one generator of wind power on planet Earth?

STU: Oh, obviously France.

GLENN: No. No, no, no. Number one.

STU: Oh, the Netherlands.

GLENN: No. No, no, no. Number one. More wind generated power than any other.

STU: Finland. Finland.

GLENN: No.

STU: Sweden? Switzerland?

GLENN: No.

DAN: You are thinking too small. It's got to be a big country.

GLENN: Put these together. Who is killing bats faster than anyone else?

STU: Iceland is killing bats?

GLENN: No, Iceland is not it.

DAN: Australia.

GLENN: Guys! Let's start over. Stu?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Why are the bats dying?

STU: The bats are dying because of wind power.

GLENN: Okay. What country kills more bats than anybody else? What country hates animals more than any other country?

STU: Spain.

DAN: Thailand.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: You are saying wait. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the question. You are saying because we know wind power is clean. It's clean energy.

GLENN: It's clean. So okay, let's try that. Okay, let's go that way. Because that means let me speak your language. Okay. What country, what country generates more clean energy from the wind.

STU: Right, okay.

GLENN: Than any other country, because it's because we're the leaders in the world, because the rest of the world waits for this country to lead the way. What country is leading the way on clean wind power?

STU: You keep putting it some weird way but when you say it that way, obviously Belgium.

GLENN: No.

DAN: Stu, you missed it. He obviously meant England.

STU: Oh, the U.K., was it Ireland? Or is it oh, idiots, idiots, idiots. Greenland!

DAN: Oh.

STU: Greenland.

DAN: Our bad.

GLENN: Am I being produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon? Okay, here's the deal. I'm just going to come clean with you. Surprisingly enough the largest generator of wind power, the country leading the way for the rest of the world is... America. The United States of America. That's this one. That's crazy. Who knew. You'd think that the rest of the world would be moving in that direction since we're leading the way. It's crazy. You'd think somebody would point that out. "Hey, good for us. We're leading the way." Hmmm. I didn't know that.

Here's when I found it out. Killing bats. Wind power's changing the pressure of the air around the windmills. I don't know. It might have been the aroma of tulips that stopped this from happening in Holland when they did it oh, so many years ago. But wind power here in the United States is actually killing bats. I'd like to know why you hate bats so much. I'd like to know how you can where you get off of saying, "I want to run my toaster. I want, I want my " well, why don't we just squeeze bats and use bat juice to run your microwave oven, Mr. Animal hate monger. Why don't we just torture bats so you can get to work in an air conditioned car. You clearly are not truly for the Pickens plan, are you? Oh, and you're going to destroy the bat population.

By the way, there was another study out that said that the vibrations are causing headaches and nausea and all kinds of things with people. Whatever. The bats are dying. And let me tell you something. You may not take the bat population seriously but maybe that's because you've never met a bat. Oh, you just think of them as this animal that has been made to dress up like a vampire. Sure, sure. Let the movie be your stereotype, okay? These are God's only handicapped creatures, all of them. Did you know this? All of them born blind. Oh, you think it's funny. "Oh, you're blind as a bat." Really? Funny, Mr. Hate monger that wants to kill them with wind power? That's why on tomorrow's program we're going to be asking for people who have sick mice or gerbils to ship us their eyes so we can transplant your dying gerbil eyes into bats. It's Bat Doctors Without Borders. It's a new program. It's a new program. We'll debut it on tomorrow's show. Just leaving it there, hate monger. I'm just leaving it there.

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."
