Healthcare bills passing in the night...

Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government

by Glenn Beck

PAT: They're conducting this vote tomorrow night 8:00 or 10:00 or whenever they get around to it on a Saturday night. Is it on C‑Span? Are they broadcasting it? Is it out in the light of day? Have they even ‑‑ and as you know, 2,074 pages, nobody none of these guys, or women, have read this bill. But we've heard that's not important anymore, either.

CONYERS: I love these members that get up and say read the bill. What good is reading the bill if it's 1,000 pages and you don't have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill.

PAT: That's one of the most incomprehensible things. I mean, I understand what he's saying. I just can't believe he would say it. And I can't believe how stupid you have to be. He knows what he's doing. He is a lawyer himself, John Conyers. "Read the bill." It's so ridiculous to ask them to read a 1,000 page bill. How ridiculous is it to ask them to read a 2,074 page bill? It's just not going to happen. They have no idea. They have no idea what's in this thing.

And the way in which they are trying to secure votes apparently, there's a good article today says, what does it take to get a wavering senator to vote for healthcare reform? Here's a case study. On Page 432 of the read bill, there's a section increasing federal Medicaid subsidies for, quote, certain states recovering from a major disaster, unquote. This section spends two pages defining which states would qualify saying, among other things, that it would be states that during the preceding seven fiscal years have been declared a major disaster area. Now, there is exactly one indicate that fits that description, and it's Louisiana, surprising ‑‑ surprisingly enough it is Louisiana, the home of moderate Democrat Mary Landrieu who has been playing hard to get on the healthcare bill, and she's undecided on it. So this bill calls for $100 million to her state. They're trying to buy her off. They're trying to ‑‑ with this bizarre, "No, we're just doing ‑‑ no, no, this is for any state that during the preceding seven fiscal years has been declared a major disaster area. That could be any state. If Idaho had that happen, they would get the $100 million as well. " There's one state that fits it. This is an effort to buy off Mary Landrieu. Harry Reid who drafted it can't pass it without the support of Senator Mary Landrieu.

Now, in radio this is called ‑‑ this kind of thing is called payola, and it's illegal. "Hey, if you could, if you could just see your way clear to start playing our new Britney Spears record, why, we could maybe see to it that you and your wife get a trip to Hawaii, hmmm? We'll maybe even throw in a trip for an on‑air contest that you could give away a trip to Hawaii, too. How about it? No? Hmmm. How about $50,000?" It's illegal in radio. Why is this legal in the halls of congress where they're setting the course for our future? It's just, it's incomprehensible to me. So again we have to stand on this and we have to stand on it pretty hard. This is a critical juncture. We've been talking about this for months now. You know how important it is. You know that this sets the stage for the destruction of the U.S. economy. One sixth of the economy will be, will then be under the U.S. Government control.

They're trying to tell you that this is only about healthcare and taking care of people who are dying every day. Oh, they're just, they're dropping dead every day because they don't have healthcare. Dropping dead right now. And just be piled up on sidewalks of the streets of major cities and minor cities all over this country and I just, I'm sick about it. And these Republicans don't care about them. They see it, they see it every day, see people dropping dead from lack of healthcare every day, every minute. They don't do anything about it. We're just trying to fix that. Yeah, that's all they are trying to do. We all know better than that. We all know that we have the greatest healthcare system in the world. Are there problems with it? Yes. The preexisting condition thing that precludes people from ever obtaining health insurance at a reasonable rate or a rate they could ever afford is something we have to address. Fine; do that. Do that. Fix that! You don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. This doesn't, this doesn't make any sense, unless, unless you've got some other motive here and that's to fundamentally transform America.

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."
