GLENN: The news is absolutely incredible, from the porn industry wanting a bailout which we'll get to in a second, and I don't think you can argue with them -- from the porn industry wanting a bailout to New York now wanting longer coverage for your kids on health insurance. Well, wait a minute, what does that mean? You can keep your kids on your health insurance a longer period of time. Well, that sounds fantastic. Wait a minute, doesn't that already cover through college? Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, no, your kids can stay under Mommy and Daddy's wing until they're 30. Get out of the house, deadbeat! Get a job and get some healthcare! 30, I'm about to snap. And then I read this one, and only in New York: A guy is having trouble with his relationship with his wife and she gets sick and they have been having problems and they're struggling and everything else, but she's sick. Until death do us part. She gets so sick, she needs a kidney. Her husband looks at her and says, "Honey, I've already given you my heart. I'll give you my kidney, too." He donates a kidney to his wife; she gets better and then she cheats on him. And he says, you've got to be kidding me, right? "What? You know how sexy that scar is there? Oh, yes." So now they're in divorce court. And only in the city where it snows up is he saying, "I want my damn kidney back."

Now, as crazy as that sounds, the judge's response was, "We don't think there's a court in the land that would do it." We don't think there's a court in the land that would do it? I mean, you know, possession is 9/10ths of the law. I think when it comes to the kidney, I think you keep the kidney. Stu disagrees with me? She's got to give the kidney back?

STU: You are a guy and you have -- you are a loyal, in a long-term relationship and your wife is nearing death. So you give her, you give her one of your most vital organs and she cheats on you? You get scissors and you pop the thing out.

GLENN: No, wait a minute. Hang on just a second. I didn't know he could take it out himself. I may be on your side.

STU: I'm just sayin'.

GLENN: If legally the judge says, yes, but you have to take it out with this rusty spoon, then I might be on your side. No, look, here's the thing. When you give somebody something, especially a kidney, an organ, you give it to them. For instance, do you loan money to your family?

STU: I do not think that is a good idea.

GLENN: That wasn't the question. Do you loan money to your family?

STU: I'm trying to give you an accurate answer here. I would say no. I never would loan --

GLENN: You never have in nobody's ever asked you for money? You've never loaned money?

STU: I would never --

GLENN: Why are you so -- what have I caught you in?

STU: No, you can't --

GLENN: What kind of made-up scam are you in with your parents? Really, Mom, just invest more.

STU: What happens is I pay my mom and then my children will have to pay me later.

GLENN: Oh, so Uncle Sam, it's you. Okay.

STU: No, I would never -- the bottom line is -- and this is I think, I think this is universal: You never loan money to someone in your family and actually expect it back.

GLENN: Exactly right. Exactly right. If you loan somebody in your family money, you just can't expect it back. They can promise, "I promise," uh-huh, whatever. Because if they don't, then your family life is wrecked with them forever because you are always seething about, "You never paid -- you just went out and you bought what? You've upgraded? You are now eating Alpo when you can eat the generic stuff?"

STU: That doesn't mean they don't pay it back. They should.

GLENN: You've got to let it go and you've just got to give it. When you are giving somebody an organ, see, I have to tell you. If you gave me an organ and then all of a sudden you thought you owned me, you don't even own my kidney.

STU: Whoa, whoa, whoa. That has nothing to do with owning. It's about respecting the vows.

GLENN: How do you know that's not his attitude?

STU: He wants the kidney back. He deserves the kidney back.

GLENN: If they are rich -- and this is the case they are making also is, I want the kidney back or I want the money. "

STU: Right.

GLENN: And you could make the case, they valued the kidney at, what is it, $1.5 million? You could make the -- yeah, $1.5 million. You could make the case that she has to pay you for the kidney.

STU: Legally I don't know that you have a case to reclaim the kidney, I will be honest. But I'm just saying in the real world, if you are that horrible a person that someone will give you one of their vital organs and you will still treat them like trash, you deserve to lose the kidney. He could just, he doesn't even have to use it. He doesn't have to put it back in. He can just put it on his mantel in a little glass box like it's a trophy and I'd be fine with it.

GLENN: It would be. If I got the kidney from my wife who cheated on me, I wouldn't want it back in me. I'd want it on my fireplace. I would. I'd want it on the mantel. I might use it, I might bronze it and use it as a doorstop.

STU: I might just wait until it's completely unusable and then mail it to her just so she -- you can have it; I just don't want it to work.

GLENN: You know what? I've changed my mind. Here's the kidney back. You are right. But see, that wasn't what Jesus would do. But then again, Jesus wasn't married, now, was he? Uh-huh, didn't marry Jesus, did ya? I want the kidney back.

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.
