Glenn Beck - EPA: Air is Dangerous

Glenn: If you look at what happened yesterday, the stories that broke yesterday with the EPA, the EPA now saying that they're going to regulate CO2, Congress coming out, John Kerry -- do we have any of the statements, Pat?

Pat: Yeah. I have John Kerry's statement. He said -- we don't have the audio. It's just a release.

Glenn: Uh-huh.

Pat: This is a clear message -- in his voice, This is a clear message to "Copenhogen" of the Obama administration's commitment to address global climate change and a clear signal to Congress of the importance of passing comprehensive climate energy legislation.

Glenn: Let me translate. We're --

Pat: This is blackmail.

Glenn: Yes.

Pat: This President and this Congress are black mailing the American people.

Glenn: Here's -- here's -- here's how it works: They are -- they're telling us now that if Congress doesn't pass cap and trade, we'll just have cap. That's what they're saying.

Pat: Uh-huh.

Glenn: And it will destroy the economy. What's interesting to me is somehow or the other Congress, who is becoming more and more irrelevant every single day, they're trying to make you believe that they can't control the EPA. All they have to do is pass a law saying, no, the EPA's not doing that, period, and it's over. Instead, they set up this false premise that you have to pass cap and trade because what the EPA is going to do is worse because they're out of control. Excuse me? The EPA is out of control? Then maybe Congress should abolish the EPA. Maybe Congress should abolish the ability for the EPA to control the economy. It's just that easy, but they don't think anybody is going to see that. You have the FTC now, the FTC is going to just move ahead with regulation with neutrality because Congress just isn't moving fast enough. Your Congressmen, your senators are being spineless weasels and they are allowing these agencies to grow out of control. Who is in charge? I urge you. I said about a year ago you need to read a book. It's one of the worst books -- I mean, it's horrible. It's just -- this novel is just so -- oh, it's awful. I was going to say, imagine the worst person you could imagine writing a novel. They wrote it, but then a lot of people will go, well, you, Glenn. Imagine the worst novel you could imagine. Got it? It's this one. It was written in the 1900's, early 1900's. It's called Phillip Dru, Administrator. Why do you laugh?

Pat: I read Nancy Drew. Is that --

Glenn: No. It's D-r-u. They're different.

Pat: Oh.

Glenn: Phillip Dru, Administrator, the reason why I read that book -- this was a few years ago -- I was reading something on Woodrow Wilson and the book that I was reading quoted this or said that he was reading his favorite novel, Phillip Dru, blah blah blah, and Woodrow Wilson had read this book a couple of times during his administration and so I was curious. I usually -- when I read books, I will highlight or dog-ear pages where it quotes another book or something that influenced their thinking and so I track a person's thinking down by trying to read what they were reading at the time. So, since this is one of his favorite books and he read it a couple of times, I thought, I wonder what that was all about. So, I read it. It's awful, but it is the blueprint of what we're doing right now. Phillip Dru is just a war hero. He's just -- everybody loves him. He's just the greatest. He doesn't want to serve, but he will. Oh, gosh. I don't want to be the President, but I will, because it's the right thing for America. But Congress is so corrupt. If there was just some way to stop Congress from being so -- Hey, I know. I'll just -- I'll just put a bunch of departments in and I'll just go over everybody's head and I -- because everybody can trust me because I'm a war hero. Gosh. And I didn't want to serve, but I will, because I'm just like the average American Joe and then I'll just put in some administrators and -- because there won't be any corruption. They won't have any desire to be corrupt. Administrators? They'll be fine. And they will write to me, the President of the United States. And so what these administrators do is, well, they go and they look at all of the different things that are going wrong. In fact, he sends 50 of them out to go look at all of states and the state Constitutions and some of these things in the State Constitutions, they're just crazy. (Laugher.) They're just nuts. So, our administrators will go ahead and tell those states which laws they should have and which laws they shouldn't and just make those Constitutions, which are so old and written in such archaic language, that maybe we should just rewrite them just a little bit so everybody can understand them. And we're just going to thank a few things and we're also going to oversee all of the businesses and the financial sectors and everything else because they're just -- those people are just so corrupt, we need somebody pure, somebody that can restore hope, like Phillip Dru, who doesn't want to do these things. He just has to. Does any of that sound familiar?

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!"
