Glenn Beck: Against the grain



GLENN: Man, thank you so much for listening to today. Let's go to Corinne. Hello, Corinne, in Columbia.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn, I'm a new listener, been in Columbia for about two months and I stumbled on your show and I absolutely love it. So I just want to say that.

GLENN: Well, thank you.

CALLER: I was listening yesterday and I was listening to the guy from Charleston. I believe he was a black brother that was in your audience, and he calls himself a conservative.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: And I'm just thrilled because I'm a conservative, too. Been one since 1990. And I have to tell you -- 

GLENN: Are you black -- wait, wait, are you black?

CALLER: Yeah, I'm African-American, yeah.

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: And I have to tell you it's not a very popular stance.

GLENN: No.

CALLER: No, it really isn't, okay? Amongst my family, it's interesting. This holiday season during the election, I mean, my sister and I are very close but we almost went to fists over the phone over this election. And even sitting at Thanksgiving dinner, the topic came up and so I'm just sitting there and I'm like, I'm not going to say anything, I'm not going to say anything. And they just kept baiting me and my husband was cracking up. And I just had to ask them a question. I'm like, well, what is it about Barack Obama, you know, that you really like. And they just jumped on me. I just, I felt I was just being -- I was going to get killed. I said, please. But I'm very -- 

GLENN: What was it that they liked? What was the answer?

CALLER: Well, he's black and he's articulate and he's smart. I'm like, okay, and that's what you based, that's your criteria for electing the President of the United States.

GLENN: Right. No, I mean, he is, he is all those things and that's great, but there are a lot of people that are those things.

CALLER: Absolutely. And that was my point to them and they're like, well, who did you vote for, who did you vote? This is the side of the family, they don't know where I stand. And I just told them, I'm neither Democrat, nor am I Republican. I will vote based on my values system. And the last several years just happened to be Republican because that's where my values system fall. I actually attended a church in Dallas where the pastor was phenomenal, black world renowned pastor and he never preached politics but he preaches values, and that's where he -- 

GLENN: Let me ask you this, Corinne. Are you still a Republican? Do you still find your values in the Republican party?

CALLER: It's hard, Glenn.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: It's very difficult. This election was extremely hard for me because I never was a John McCain supporter. The person I wanted to get, the person I actually wanted to vote for, he just never, he never came to life. He was saying the right things, I thought, but he just -- 

GLENN: Who were you for?

CALLER: His name, well, I see his name but I can't even think of his name anymore.

GLENN: That's all right. I blocked them all out.

CALLER: The actor, the actor.

GLENN: Oh, Fred Thompson.

CALLER: Fred Thompson, exactly.

GLENN: Yeah, I agree with you. You know what, before he started running, I'm like, okay, that guy's -- okay, all right. But then he got out there and we were like, what are you talking about, what are you doing.

CALLER: Yeah. He fizzled. And the last thing I wanted to say about your Christmas Sweater. I have not seen it. I've wanted to see it. So I went out and bought the book. And I've been listening to you and I have to tell you, I have gone through my own black eye of the storm. I lost my husband, I lost my daughter in a terrible car accident. I almost died in the accident. My son was diagnosed as mentally retarded. All this happened within three months of each other.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

CALLER: And I gave birth to our third child. So she was born -- my son was diagnosed in August. This was August 1998. I gave birth to our third child in September of 1998 and then my husband and my oldest daughter were killed in a car accident in November. After this time of year, it was the day of Thanksgiving ten years ago. And so, you know, you go through that and people look at you and they think, well, how did you make it, Corinne, you're going to lose your mine. It was like, no, because I know where my foundation is, I know that nothing happens except God has approved it and sent it my way because there's a purpose in everything that happens to me as a believer in Jesus Christ. And so it was him that took me through. And happy ending to the story. About, oh, seven years ago I remarried to a wonderful, wonderful man. If you are listening, Carlos, I'm talking about you. Just a wonderful man. And he has just been Daddy to my special needs son. My special needs son is now 13, and my daughter who is 10. And he's there. They don't know any other daddy but him because my daughter was two months old when her biological father died. And it has been an adventure, let me tell you. It has been just an adventure. So I'm just excited to see what God is going to do with our lives.

GLENN: You know, I'll tell you something. That's why you are who you are. That's why you are as strong as you are. That's why you don't need to rely on the Republican party or the Democratic party or anybody else because you faced it all and you know the real answer. The real answer is God and the real answer is you'll make it as long as God is your partner. You don't need anybody else in the White House, you know, that's telling you, "Oh, I care about you." Uh-huh, sure you do. You can take care of yourself and God bless you for throwing those shackles off. You stay strong. And I have to tell you, I think every conservative in America should add to the prayer rolls that you have a long list of people you pray for every night, I think you should pray for those African-Americans who are breaking free of the -- and are ostracized in their own community for their belief system. I've met so many on the trail here the last four weeks. As I've gone out, I've met so many African-American conservatives and they -- I mean, I can't imagine what it's like walking in, being the only black person there and standing there, or feeling like you're the only black person there and walking into a room and you don't feel like, "Okay, you know, I'm with my people" because of just skin color alone but you're with people ideologically. And I hope they always feel comfortable, you know, when they come in and they're with the audience, no matter what your skin color is. I hope you always feel comfortable. But knowing that what they're doing they get slammed for in their own community and many times in their own family. Put these people on your own prayer list and just thank God for them and ask for strength because these guys are pioneers to break away from the system. Just like you're a pioneer in your world of breaking away from the system that we've all been told we can trust of this two-party system, breaking away from it and saying, no, I like the Republicans, I don't mind being a Republican but I'm not going to sell my soul to the devil. Keep those people in your prayers that they have strength and they continue to hold fast and they continue to be a shining example to all those around them.

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."
