Glenn: In completely, completely unrelated news, the house that approved a $290 billion limit in the debt limit. Obama is now signing a $1.1 trillion spending bill. The house has also approved $155 billion for a jobs programs. And, again, in completely unrelated news Americans in the latest NBC poll, again, NBC Wall Street Journal poll, less than a year after inauguration date, support for the Democratic party continues to slump, amid a difficult economy and a wave of public discontent, according to the Wall Street Journal NBC news poll. Findings underscored how dramatically the political landscape has changed during the Obama administration first year. In January, despite the recession and financial crisis, voters expressed optimism about the future, the new President enjoyed soaring approval ratings, and congressional leaders promised to swiftly pass his ambitious agenda. In December survey, for the first time less than half of Americans approved of the job President Obama was doing, marking a steeper first year fall for a President ‑‑ fall for this President than his recent predecessors. Also for the first time this year, the electorate was split on which party it wanted to see in charge after the 2010 elections. Excuse me? Now, you know what this is. This is, again, a story written poorly. They don't know which party to vote for. We're split as a nation. Yes, yes, we are. But to be split with the Republicans, you've got to be in dire, dire shape because it's no like everybody's, like, you know what? I want to run out and be a Republican.

Stu: That's why the tea party had higher ratings than either party. I mean, that's just significant.

Glenn: It wasn't either party. It was just the Republicans.

Stu: Oh. There's a new one out. If you give me one second, I will find it for you. Here we go. This is a Wall Street Journal NBC news poll.

Glenn: May I ‑‑ may I please, please warn you on something, please.

Stu: Sure.

Glenn: These parties are going to become chameleon‑like and they are going to try to hijack the tea parties and the 9‑12 movement and they are going to try to say, we're just like you. Please be careful next year.

Pat: That's why I only belong to the Christmas party. That's all ‑‑ that's the only way I'll join this year.

Glenn: Really? When do you have meetings?

Pat: Tonight.

Glenn: You have a meeting tonight?

Pat: I have a meeting tonight. (

Glenn: I know.

Stu: Is it an annual?

Stu: Yeah.

Glenn: What happens (at this meeting of the Christmas party? What happens?

Pat: We sit around an eat and stuff and ‑‑

Glenn: Wait, wait, wait. Okay. Hang on. (.

Glenn: It's a Christmas party

Pat: Now that you know about the Christmas party, I knew ‑‑

Glenn: Okay. So, you sit around an eat

Pat: Eat.

Glenn: I'm in. Okay. But what else?

Pat: Well, stupid games.

Glenn: Stupid games.

Stu: I'm a little iffy on that.

Glenn: Okay. All right.

Pat: But the stupid game didn't look to stupid that you might not want to attend the, you know, Christmas party.

Glenn: Right, right.

Pat: So, I think the food might ‑‑

Glenn: And then you have to listen to speeches and then they go on and on and on.

Pat: Oh, geez, I hope not.

Stu: You haven't been to one of these Christmas parties, have you?

Pat: I haven't been.

Stu: This is your first one.

Glenn: Oh, yeah? You just doubled the size of my speech. It's just become 45 minutes.

Pat: I don't think you could speak any less than that.

Stu: Are you capable of standing up for less than 45 minutes? I don't think so.

Glenn: That's what we do at this so‑called Christmas party, as you call it to fondly.

Stu: Yeah. Typically 42, 43. But, you know, this is actually real. More than 4 in 10, 41 percent of respondents said they had a very or somewhat favorable view of the tea party movement.

Glenn: How many?

Stu: 41 percent. While 24 percent said they had a somewhat view. So, 41‑24, plus 17 for the tea parties. The Democratic party, 35 positive, 45 negative, minus 10.

Pat: 35, 45.

Stu: So, plus 17 for tea party, minus 10 for Democratic party.

Glenn: Wow.

Stu: And then Republican party is a 28 percent favorability, a 43 percent negative. So, they're minus 15. (So, tea party plus 17, Democrats minus 10, Republicans minus 15

Pat: The Christmas party? What was the ‑‑ was it in there?

Stu: Christmas party ‑‑

Glenn: Is it in there?

Stu: Plus 47, if Glenn is sick and not making his speech, plus 60. Otherwise ‑‑ there's actually ‑‑

Pat: Is there still at Republican party?

Stu: The world workers party retired.

Glenn: Isn't that amazing?

Pat: It's incredible.

Glenn: It's amazing.

Pat: Especially with all the media backlash against the tea party.

Glenn: And everybody gets them except, you know, talk radio.

Stu: And not only ‑‑ not only ‑‑

Glenn: Look at this. Look at this. The man of the year is Ben Bernanke and no one in Time magazine, they don't even show the pictures of the tea party movement and the tea party movement is more popular than the Republican and the Democratic party.

Stu: By a significant margin. The closest of which 27 points ‑‑ there's a 27‑point swing, the closest. 32 points with the Republicans.

Glenn: That's incredible.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

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.
