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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
