Glenn Beck: $300 million bribe

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

by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Let me talk to you about Mary Landrieu. Mary Landrieu is the senator from Louisiana, and she got $100 million ‑‑ explain this, Pat.

PAT: She got ‑‑ there's an article in this new healthcare bill in the Senate version that specifies that any state that's been declared a major emergency or a major disaster area for each of the last seven years and fits several other criteria, like they have a state capitol that's two words in the name.

GLENN: That doesn't really say that, does it?

PAT: Like Baton Rouge. No, I mean, it's not quite that. But it's almost that specific. I mean, it takes like three seconds to determine that Louisiana is the only one.

GLENN: Right. It's three pages. This definition is three pages.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So you know when they're defining this, they had to define it in three pages.

PAT: Otherwise they're going to give it to how many states?

GLENN: Right. So it had to be very carefully designed. But if you thought you weren't doing anything wrong, you would have just said Louisiana, okay? So if you ‑‑ it takes really one word. Well, $300 million grant, for, one word, Louisiana.

PAT: Louisiana.

GLENN: But instead they knew that this was a bribe. They knew this was wrong. So they had to cover it in three pages by defining it very specifically without ever saying the one word: Louisiana. This is a bribe. That's all it is.

PAT: Because Mary Landrieu was on the fence. She was maybe not going to vote for even cloture and so it was reported to be $100 million on Friday and reporters were asking her about this financial fix for Louisiana that got her vote. And she said, I'm not going to be defensive about this, and it's not a $100 million fix. It's a $300 million fix. So she was so arrogant about it that she told them it was triple the bribe. So she may be easy.

GLENN: But she's not cheap.

PAT: But she's not cheap. So I think that's ‑‑ at least that's what I take from that.

GLENN: We're with a high‑class prostitute. That's what we're with.

STU: Right. It's certainly ‑‑

PAT: No, you are not at Motel 6 with this ‑‑

GLENN: No. You are not sitting there in a back alley and saying, "Hey, what do you say, five bucks?" No, no, no. This one comes to your Four Seasons hotel room.

STU: Yeah, and you know what?

GLENN: And does it right.

STU: And doesn't dress really slutty.

PAT: You might even think she's the wife of the CEO she's coming in on.

GLENN: Exactly right.

PAT: You know?

GLENN: There's nobody that's going to look at her and go, oh, my gosh, you're with a whore.

STU: Exactly.

GLENN: You are going to look at her and say, "Oh, wow.

PAT: She's classy.

GLENN: Look at that. And then when somebody whispers, she's a prostitute.

PAT: But you think, okay, but she's not cheap.

STU: Exactly.

PAT: You'll dismiss it because it's like, well, yeah, but she's not getting 20 bucks an hour, right? She's getting 1,000 bucks, 1,000 bucks for the night.

GLENN: She's the one when you say, you're a hooker! You're like, you know, having sex for 100 bucks. She says, it's not 100 bucks. It's $5,000!

PAT: Yeah. And then you respect her. Then you're like, oh, okay.

STU: It's the type of high‑class prostitute that actually purchases a wedding ring so when she's walking through the plaza, people think that she's actually married to the person she's walking in with. That's what we're talking about.

PAT: That's how classy she is.

STU: You don't sell your principles for $50 on the street corner. No, no, no 300 million in a three‑Page definition. That's the way you sell your principles.

PAT: That's right.

GLENN: That's right, they did sell their principles.

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!"
