Glenn Beck: Gov't diet counseling?

Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

GLENN: By the way, can you imagine a country where the government regularly checks on the waistline of you? If you are over 40, I need to check your waist. Excuse me? If you are deemed too fat by the government, you are required to take diet counseling. If you fail to lose sufficient weight, you could face further "Reeducation" and you'll be subject to stiff fines. Now, this is when I think -- this is what I say is coming if we get government healthcare. Because they have a good case. If we're going to take care of you, you have to take care of yourself. If we're going to go out and put out in the pocket, you've got to take care of yourself. And "Put the fries down for you. Not good for you, fatty-fat-fatso. Get on that treadmill or no healthcare for you." And a lot of Americans will say that's good. A lot of Americans will say, "Oh, that's great." A lot of Americans will also say that will never happen, we'll never get into that situation. We're just going to get free healthcare and it will be exactly the way it is right now. Glenn is always reeducation camps, please. I'm going to go for diet counseling and then they are going to force me to get onto a treadmill. It's actually what's happening now in Japan and the Japanese government argues exactly the argument that I have been saying is coming and that is we're paying for the healthcare costs. The British government has banned television ads for eggs on the grounds that they are promoting an unhealthy lifestyle. Egg sellers, you don't have the right to advertise. You're cigarettes. In New Zealand a Welsh submarine cable specialist was banned from entering the country on grounds that his obesity would impose significant costs on New Zealand's health or special education services. So he was not allowed to immigrate to New Zealand until he lost weight. But his wife couldn't lose the weight and so she couldn't get in. Germany, citizens who failed to cooperate are branded as antisocial for costing the government billions of dollars or Euros in medical expenses. So they found yet another demon: The fat people. By the way, I'm only bringing this up because have you looked at us lately? Have you seen how fat we are? Drudge Report said that most Americans, the obese Americans now outnumber the overweight Americans. You can't be a burden to society. Many American cities are now banning restaurants from selling foods with transfats. Los Angeles has proposed a moratorium on new fast food restaurants in south LA. Other California cities banned smoking in private residence. California has outlawed after school as a part of zero-tolerance ban on selling sugar products at a campus. David Paterson, the governor of New York, has proposed an 18% tax on sugar sodas and juice drinks. Appeared that's not in schools. That's everywhere. 18% tax. And state officials have not ruled out additional taxes on cheeseburgers and other foods deemed unhealthy. By the way, I just had the best cheeseburger. Stu, have you seen the cheeseburger that we've been sending out for lately? It's from, like --

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Good Burger?

STU: That's the biggest hamburger I've ever seen in my life.

GLENN: It is the best hamburger I've ever had. Is that a chain outside of New York?

STU: I don't know if it's outside of New York, but I'm thinking it might be a chain.

GLENN: Oh, Stu, you're a stupid vegetarian. This is worth getting sick over and wretching.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Oh, so good. Good Burger, can you look it up?

STU: Yeah, it's Good Burger NY. So I would assume it is a New York franchise.

GLENN: Unbelievable. We should send these to listeners. We'll just send you a cheeseburger in the mail. You know, Louie's Lunch is the inventor of the hamburger in New Haven. This is the only thing that I can even put in that category. It's that good.

STU: Really?

GLENN: It's that good.

STU: There are five locations, all of them in New York City. Sorry, rest of the world.

GLENN: Well, capitalism, until they shut you down because of obesity and global warming and, you know, you have to pay for that cow tax, you should have one of these. You should go into the Good Burger business. You should get a franchise because they are fantastic. Or you should just do what I do and just go eat them and just get just fat as a house.


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."
