Gerald Walpin Is Superman

Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5pm & 2am ET on FOX News Channel

We've been telling you about the firing of Inspector General Gerald Walpin, who the White House claims is, "confused, disoriented and unable to answer questions."

Well, I've spoken to him twice before and Wednesday night I even put him through the official state mini mental exam to check him out. Believe me, the only thing wrong with Gerald Walpin is that his heart hurts from being thrown under the bus by the system he served for so long.

The one thing that nobody in Washington or the media seems to understand is that Gerald Walpin is superman.

Let me tell you a personal story about my grandfather. He was my hero; he was Santa Claus; the strongest man in the world. He was a sheriff, a vet. He even punched a horse out when it needed to be put down; he was a strong man; he was my superman.

When I was 14 years old, my family took away the keys to his truck after he drove it through the window of Sambo's restaurant. Three weeks later he started driving his tractor instead. When they took the tractor keys away he started riding the lawnmower.

Then, all of a sudden, grandpa just went away; I never saw him again. My family thought it was best that I didn't see him in that state, so that I'd remember the man he was: the superhero.

Well, Gerald Walpin is somebody's superman, too, and he is living proof of the American dream.

Walpin grew up in the Bronx — so poor that his parents didn't eat dinner so that he could. They'd avoid answering the doorbell because it could be the gasman. And even though he worked hard enough to get into Harvard, he was unable to pay for it.

But Walpin wouldn't let his dream die. He wanted to be a litigator, so he went to Yale law, took on massive loans, eventually got a scholarship and graduated in 1955.

He's also been Superman to Sheila, his wife of 52 years. She still remembers their first date, it was a double-blind date and Gerald took her to a cheap restaurant because it was all he could afford. They were married less than a year later.

Gerald Walpin is Superman to his three great children: Amanda, Edward and Jennifer. They know their dad as a 1st lieutenant in JAG; a special U.S. prosecutor who took on the longest criminal jury case at the time; a pitbull who went after conservative Roy Cohn, the infamous council to an aide of Senator Joseph McCarthy. They know him as an attorney who helped to indict Nixon's top two Cabinet members and who represented Mia Farrow against Woody Allen.

And they know him as a great dad: Taking them on trips all over the world, from Russia to Afghanistan to Turkey and everywhere in between.

Gerald Walpin made such an impression on his children that when the youngest one graduated from college and could've asked for anything she wanted, she asked that the family take another one of those cherished vacations together.

Gerald Walpin has done amazing things for his children, his six grandchildren and his country. But none of that matters to our government, which is trying to tear down this distinguished man by claiming that he's like my grandpa: Driving along on the side of that road to Sambo's on his lawnmower.

He's not.

When the government's thirst for money and power would drive them to destroy a man like my grandpa, your dad or Gerald Walpin, who is next?

Wednesday night I asked him, "Do you think you're going to win?"

"No," he said.

"So why are you doing it?"

"Because I couldn't live with myself if I didn't."

To his wife, to his children, to his family, Gerald Walpin is more of a hero now than he's ever been because he's doing the one thing that so many others are afraid to: He's standing against those who can make the planet spin in the other direction.

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."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
