GLENN: Let's go to William in Portland. Hello, William.

CALLER: Good morning, Glenn. Hello.

GLENN: How are you, sir?

CALLER: Well, I'm rather upset at you and I'll tell you why.

GLENN: All right.

CALLER: I was a McCain/Palin supporter, and you spent a good part of the election season putting the knock on McCain.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: And one day you said that you didn't want McCain because he flirted with socialism and you didn't know what he was going to do but you knew what Obama was going to do and you admitted that you knew Obama was a stoned Marxist. And mine is not only to you but to the conservatives that voted with you this way. We could have had a decent ticket. I mean, we had Sarah Palin. I am terrified for the future of this country. I don't want to be a socialist. I don't want the government running my healthcare.

GLENN: Which way did I vote?

CALLER: I have no idea. That's your private business. You don't even tell me. But I mean --

GLENN: Well, no, you're saying that all you people that voted this way. I voted for Palin.

CALLER: All right, that's good. But the point is, Glenn, you spent a lot of the election season casting shadows on McCain, and I wish that --

GLENN: Yeah, because he deserves them. See, here's the thing. Here's the thing. William, you are not going to win this argument because I believe Ronald Reagan was wrong. He was wrong. The 11th commandment, thou shalt not tear down any other Republican, bullcrap. You call bullcrap when you see bullcrap, period. I don't believe in the, you know, the, "Well, shhh, keep quiet over here." Let me tell you something else, William. What would have been worse? What is worse? You've got a guy now. If America will not get worn out, if America will keep standing, if people don't tune out, you're going to be okay. But if people get worn out, then we won't be. So who gets -- hang on, William. So who gets, who wins first here? Is he going to give up or are you going to give up?

Now let me ask you this: This economy, you don't have to believe me, but when it happens, then maybe you'll say, "Oh, gee, maybe I should have listened." This economy globally is going to go right down the crapper. This economy is going -- we are going to be looking at a depression, a depression, very bad stuff coming our way. Now, you ask yourself this -- could I make my point, please, William?

CALLER: Then can I --

GLENN: You ask yourself this question, William. (Can I make mine) Which would be better for, to have a guy that is flirting with socialists to say, see, we didn't go far enough, or the guy who is completely transforming this economy overnight and tying up our businesses and labor unions and everything else? Who's going to be blamed for it? I'd rather have it not be a conservative who's not a conservative.

CALLER: Glenn, that is so crazy. By the time this guy gets done, we might not be able to undo the damage he did.

GLENN: Let me tell you something, William. By the time any of these clowns would be done, they're taking us to the same damn destination. They're taking us to the same place. It is a socialist state.

I read a stat last night on television. We were 37% of our GDP was going for government programs. 37% of our GDP is a government expenditure. Now it's going to be up about 40%. Well, gee, wait a minute. Weren't the Republicans in charge for the last eight years? They were taking us to the same place, just slower. I don't want to go that place. I will vote for somebody who says, "No, I'm not going to be socialist. I believe in the founding fathers' principles." The only reason I had to vote for John McCain was because I believed that Sarah Palin actually had a clue as to who we are. John McCain is part of it. He is in that system. Go ahead, defend John McCain. What?

CALLER: We could have had Sarah Palin in the loop. We've got a Marxist, we've got --

GLENN: Did you see what John McCain did to her? If you think that it was just the media that just trashed Sarah Palin, you're kidding yourself, jack. It was in -- that was an inside job. The Republicans are just afraid of her as the Democrats are, and John McCain was no friend of Sarah Palin. Believe me on that one.

CALLER: -- under socialism.

GLENN: What?

CALLER: I do not want to live under socialism.

GLENN: Well, then let's leave it at that because neither do I. Okay, we're going to leave it at that. I guess we're coming together. We're just building bridges to each other. Unfortunately it's the government building the bridge. I don't want to live under socialism, either, my friend. I don't think any of us do. No, I didn't say that. Julio does. Barack Obama does. Many of the people in congress do. Arlen Specter does. So what the hell. I don't, nor will I. If that's the way everybody wants to go, that's great. I ain't playing that game. I'll go to jail. I don't care. I'm not going to be a socialist. I'll move to the Bahamas. I'll move some place else. I'd rather live in a country like Canada. I've never said this. I'd rather live in a country like Canada that was socialist from the start than betray the founding fathers and the principles and have them so distorted. I will stand as long as I can stand, and I know I'm not alone. Because, William, you can go ahead and blame it on people like me that wouldn't go for socialism lite, but I'm not the enemy. Socialism lite. Oh, gee, honey, do you want rat poison or... now with 50% less of the poison. "Gee, I don't think I want either of those!" But too many people will just go up to the -- and this is why it exists because people will -- they know. You will take the lesser of two evils. They only have to provide you with two products: Poison and poison lite. Because you'll take the poison lite.

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."
