GLENN: Here it is. This is Chris Matthews.

STU: First time heard in any broadcast format.

GLENN: No, he said it on a broadcast format.

STU: Yeah, first time we've heard on any broadcast format.

GLENN: Even the controls room of the Chris Matthews show is like, I can't do it, I can't do it. Fire me and just put a computer in my place, will you?

MATTHEWS: And I didn't see much excitement but among the older people there, I saw if not resentment, skepticism. I didn't see a lot of warmth in that crowd out there that the president shows to address tonight. And I thought that was interesting. He went to maybe the enemy camp tonight.

STU: Good terminology there.

GLENN: Like he's just figuring this out: I think the military

PAT: I don't think they like him.

GLENN: might have a problem with him and his policies.

STU: But enemy camp? We're talk this is

PAT: He can't say that.

STU: This is the military. This is not an analogy. Not using a military analogy for something else. This is the military.

GLENN: Let me just, let me just explain to Mr. Matthews, who may not understand how this system works. Unlike, you know, your beloved Venezuela, our troops serve the commander in chief and the Constitution of the United States. There have been many presidents that the military hasn't liked, but they follow orders and do what they're told.

STU: Look at the voting. I mean, every time it's, you know, they typically at least most recently vote for the Republican. They voted for John McCain. But that doesn't mean that they don't they are not going to do what Barack Obama tells them to do. It's like we had Marcus on the other day. He's like, just tell me to do my job. Just let me do my job, give me what I need and let me do my job.

GLENN: Even when they don't like them, they will still do the job.

PAT: They are not going to disagree about it.

GLENN: They are not going to be happy with these policies. I mean, hey, wow, that sounds like I could graduate and then go get killed. That sounds like fun. Thank you, Mr.

PAT: For absolutely no reason.

GLENN: Thank you, Mr. President. I'm trying to understand exactly this policy. If I may, if I'm not mistaken, it's the idea of war is the last person standing wins. Right?

PAT: Uh uh.


PAT: No. Not anymore.

GLENN: Okay. Because I'm wondering

PAT: It's a little different now.

STU: Politics of the past.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I'm wondering if we were playing a game and it was the last person standing wins, if you were ahead, but if I ever got serious, I could just knock you out clean but you were, you know, you were like, "I think I might actually win this game because this opponent seems pretty distracted and not real committed." And then if I just said, "By the way, I've got to leave in five minutes, I'm leaving in five minutes, okay, I'm going to put some more players down on the field but then we're leaving. I'm just bringing them down so they can help bring everybody else out and I'm going to train, you know, your team a little bit," why wouldn't you just play out the five minute why wouldn't you just run out the clock?

PAT: You wouldn't be talking about this statement, would you?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: As commander in chief I have determined that it is our vital national interest

GLENN: To get out.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: To send an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. And then get out.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: After 18 months our troops will begin to come home.

PAT: I mean, the next sentence!

STU: Yeah. Wow.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Hang on just a second. See, I heard this as a writer. I heard this as a writer. Go ahead. Play it again. I'm going to show you one thing that the writer was thinking and I'll bet the TelePrompTer was thinking and I'll bet he was thinking. Here it is.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: As commander in chief, I have determined that it is in our vital national interest to send an additional 30,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan.

GLENN: Wait for applause.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: After 18 months our troops will begin to come home.

GLENN: That's why I mean, he was waiting.

PAT: None.

GLENN: He was waiting and they're like, uh huh, uh huh.

PAT: Yeah, great.

GLENN: You better check yourself before you wreck yourself.

STU: Please don't do that again. Please never do that again.

GLENN: I think it was like Nancy Pelosi. It was like, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself. That thing is on YouTube and it's like, it's everywhere. This is really disturbing footage.

STU: You are just trying to torture your children for some bizarre reason.

GLENN: I am.

STU: It's one of those things, he seems to be acting as if this is some sort of last resort thing: We'll give it a whirl for another 18 months or 13 after the troops are actually there and it's like, are we in that position?

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait.

STU: Maybe we need to change the strategy, maybe we need to increase pressure but there's no timeline other than a self composed one and there's not like we're in the I understand that it's become more difficult, but it's not at this position where I hate to the only thing I can think of is a sports analogy, so just ignore this, Glenn. If you are down by, you know, 34 in the fourth quarter and you are just throwing it into the end zone in every play. There is no need for that at this point. You need to maybe refine, you need to change strategies, maybe change focus as it has become more violent lately but there's no need for that.

GLENN: May I just say if I'm the coach I'm sorry.

STU: Please don't try the sports.

GLENN: I call a timeout and I get everybody together and I say, kick their ass!

STU: Run it down their throats.

GLENN: And they go.

STU: Yeah, you run it down their throats.

GLENN: I mean, what, where it is in our vital national interest.

STU: For 13 months.

GLENN: Yeah. It's in our vital national interest, I think to send 35,000. 35, okay, they were asking for 60, minimum of 40. I'm going to send

PAT: 30.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Because vital national interest.

STU: Our vital national interest is worth doing something about until next summer and when that happens, it's not so vital. It's no longer interesting to the nation.

GLENN: Here's a vital national interest: To win. That's the vital national interest.

STU: Yes.


STU: If you have an internal timeline. We talked about this when they were doing this debate when Romney and McCain and all these people were talking about all this. It's sensible to sit there internally and have a timeline to say, okay, let's hit this by this and hopefully we can get out by X. But the bottom line is those things change. There's no reason to announce that to us.

PAT: You don't want the enemy to know your timeline. And his excuse is we have to let the Afghans know that this isn't open ended. So tell them privately: This isn't open ended. I'm not telling everybody this but we're coming out in 18 months.

GLENN: Try this for size. Try this for size. We're not doing this, but this doesn't even make sense. Imagine if Eisenhower would have said, wow, you want me to land on the beaches? D day? All right. I'm going to need everything we got. The president comes out and says, it's in our vital national interest that we give it, well, not everything we got. We're going to send a few more people over but then we're coming home. We're coming home. In 18 months we're coming home.

PAT: Or if you take the beach and then you announce that right after you take the beach. We're going to leave.

GLENN: We haven't taken the beach.

PAT: We're committed to taking the beach.

STU: If we take the beach

PAT: We're committed to leave. So the Nazis hold out until you leave the beach.

GLENN: Wait, wait. You are not committed to taking anything if you are saying I'm going to leave in 18 months. Because you can't take anything.

STU: Well, you are going to leave eventually.

GLENN: Well, yes, I understand that. But you can't actually take anything. Do you think the Nazis would have fought so hard on Normandy and Normandy? Do you think they would have said, hold them, hold them, hold them, hold them?

STU: They thought they were losing it forever. That's why they fought so much.

GLENN: If we would have said we're going to go into Normandy and then we're going to train those French, Hitler would have laughed.

STU: He would have entrenched himself three feet behind Normandy.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: And that's what they'll do.

GLENN: Let them do it in France, go ahead, because then they are going to leave. And then the French are going to be alone.

STU: And that's got to be what the Taliban is thinking. If they do have huge battles, they fall back, they regroup in other areas in 18 months.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And then they have got nothing to deal with.

PAT: Wait it out.

STU: Yeah, they don't have the military to deal with because they are leaving.

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."
