Glenn Beck: Political Geek Update


GLENN: Well, before we get to the election report, I just want to welcome back to the family of man -- I mean, assuming that I'm the man -- WTAM in Cleveland, Ohio. Man, Cleveland, it is great to be back with ya. We want to thank just one of the best radio stations in America, WTAM and Ray Davis for being with us every step of the way and we are so glad to be back with you in Cleveland. Can't wait to hear from you and can't wait to see you coming in a few weeks, what is it, three weeks before we -- we've never done this before. Before we come to town and give you our new stage show, and I can't believe that the stage -- today is our first day back on the air in Cleveland, Ohio, on WTAM and the stage show, the Christmas Sweater, is almost sold out in Cleveland already, but it's incredible and we are so grateful that you're with us again. Thank you so much for listening. We'll get back into the swing of things here but first let me reintroduce you to Stu, our executive producer who is looking at the election.

STU: Yeah, with news like returning to WTAM, who cares whether we turn into a socialist state in about six weeks.

GLENN: At least Cleveland can tell us what it's like.

STU: Well, the national polls are all over the place, Glenn, right now, ranging between Obama plus 2 and Obama plus 13. But McCain's best polling day in swing states happened over the weekend in quite a while actually. This is before the revelation that Barack Obama is running upon a platform to eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs in an industry that supplies half our power. So --

GLENN: Unbelievable. How do they sit on this?

STU: Glenn, doesn't this make his tire gauge idea sound brilliant in comparison?

GLENN: Oh, yeah, absolutely does.

STU: I mean, this is -- I can't even take it. Anyway, this, of course, follows the no coal plants in America thing from Joe Biden that we played and also, don't forget Harry Reid, leader of the Senate, with "Coal makes us sick and it's ruining our world and ruining our country." So this is a pretty consistent message from the Democratic party at this point. But the polls are coming in this way. In Colorado down by 5, Florida McCain is down 2, Indiana up 2, Missouri up 1, Nevada down 5, North Carolina up 3, Ohio down 2 -- Cleveland -- Pennsylvania is actually close now to 6. Everyone was making fun of them for campaigning there all the time and now they have closed 6, basically cut the lead in half and Virginia they are down 4 right now. So it's getting closer and closer.

GLENN: You know, this coal thing should make a huge difference in both Ohio and Pennsylvania. It may be too late just because of all the advance voting. I read a story in how the lines were six hours long and guess who that discourages. Older voters. Younger voters are willing to stand in line. Older voters are hearing, "The line is how long? I can't stand there for six hours." I mean, it's amazing. You want to talk about disenfranchising votes, there it is, gang. How about that one.

Hope, hope, hope, hope, I'm ready for hope.

STU: It's getting more and more hopeful, Glenn.

GLENN: I'm feeling it.

STU: We look at the Senate and our march to the Republicans having, I don't know, 41 seats we hope. There's four must-win states for the Republicans. Three of four of them now are showing 5-point leads on the Republican side, which is important, and the other one is pretty darn close in Georgia with Saxby Chambliss, the senator with the greatest name in history. So honestly --

GLENN: Let me ask you this, Stu.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: How long do you think we're on the air tomorrow? Because tomorrow night we do an Insider special broadcast just for radio because I no longer have a job, you know, on television and I'm holding onto this one by a thread, but so we're going on the Internet tomorrow at 6:00 Eastern time for the Insiders. How long do you think we're on? Do you think we're off by 7:05?

STU: Well, I think the Senate will go late into the night but listen to. This these are the states that close by 7:00. Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Vermont and Virginia. You could definitely make the case.

GLENN: You could call it.

STU: You could make the case right there. Obviously he is going to lose Vermont but if he doesn't sweep every one of those other states, it could be over at 7:00. They are not going to call them all right then but I mean, that's how fast it could be over presidential election-wise but I think the Senate's going to be quite a bit closer and should go late into the night.

GLENN: All right, let's call some states.

STU: Well, WTAM has missed out on a lot of this. So I have to explain. We call two states every day with 100% accuracy. Never have any of these states ever been proven wrong.

GLENN: We don't know until tomorrow!

STU: I don't know. It's a minuscule detail. Today we call New Jersey for Obama and Arizona for John McCain, the fact that it's very, very close there and John McCain leads now in our electoral vote count, 149 to 135.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
