VOICE: The Glenn Beck Program presents more truth behind America's march to socialism.

GLENN: You remember how much we all loved Cap'n Crunch? It's like Cap'n Crunch except our Cap'n looks a little like President Obama and it's called cap and trade. Cap and trade we would have gotten either way. We would have gotten it with McCain, we're getting it with Obama. So what are we getting with this great system that invents a market based on invisible gases? Not just any invisible gas, the invisible gas. Do this (inhaling), now just do this (exhaling). That invisible gas that you get is now a market. So what do you get if you start to tax (exhaling), that. Well, let's take a look at Europe, shall we? About a year ago European governments allocated a limited number of carbon emission permits to their big polluters. They were so excited about Cap'n trade in places like France that they are burning cars in celebration. I think that's why they were burning the cars. I'm -- either that or it had to do something about not enough welfare... for immigrants. I'm not sure. Anyway, I mean, what's not happy about a car burning? Here's how the Cap'n trade system is supposed to work. Businesses that reduce pollution are allowed to sell spare permits to ones that need more. As demand outstrips the cap supply, the price of the permits rise and incentive grows to invest in green energy. Why buy costly permits to keep a coal plant running when you can just put the cash into a clean power plant instead. That's the socialist theory.

So what's actually happening a year into this in Europe with Cap'n trade which, by the way, is in the new budget? As the recession continues to slash output, companies are now piling up green permits that they don't need and they're selling them. This is causing the price of the permits to fall. So anyone wants to pollute can afford to do so. Oh. Well, that's not really good. It's almost like there's too much of a free market in the Cap'n trade business. Maybe government should regulate that free market and only allow them to fall so far.

You know what would be even better is if at the bottom where pretty much business and industry has stopped globally, if you could make the price based on full-fledged global stock, then when things get chugging, can you imagine how much we'll make? Oh, my gosh. The results is a system that does nothing at all for climate change but a lot for the bottom lines of megapolluters. Well, I don't know why industrials would miss the opportunity, said one trader last week. They're using it to compensate for tightening of credit and the slowdown, and they pay for redundancies.

The best part of this story is we're getting it in Obama's new budget, Cap'n trade, like Cap'n Crunch, except this trick is for kids.

VOICE: Overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck Program.

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."
