Glenn, a gun, and an airport



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


by Glenn Beck

GLENN: So I'm in the airport and, you know, I carry a gun from time to time and I go to whenever you go to the airport in New York, you know it's going to be a nightmare because they immediately, if you have a gun, you are immediately a killer. There's no reason. Most New Yorkers, especially those that work at the airport, most New Yorkers will think, you've got a gun? Why have a gun! Because, A, it's my right to carry one. And have you noticed all the dangerous freaks around? So I went to the airport and, well, the lady immediately when I put my gun box up on the counter, I said it's a gun, she was totally fine with it because she for some reason or another thought I was a cop and she said, okay, just fill this out. And she gave me a piece of paper I had never seen before. I didn't even know what it was. And I'm looking at it and I realize it was for law enforcement. And I said, oh, I'm sorry, I'm not a police officer. I mean, I swear to you she almost reached down below the counter to push the button, "Bzzzz, there's a killer, there's killer at my desk, killer here." They made me take the gun out, apart. I mean, it already didn't have the clip in it, it already had the bullets in a separate box, blah, blah blah, it was already locked, everything. Everything that you're supposed to do. It had to be in three separate boxes. The bullets, the clip and the gun. Three separate pieces of luggage. I said, no, it doesn't. Oh, don't make that mistake. The airline just lost the gun part. It was no big deal. When I got to the other side of, you know, my destination and I said all the way there, my gun's gone, my gun's gone, it's gone. It would have been safer for me to give it to a 4 year old child than to pass it over to the people at the airport. Lo and behold, I'm out West. My gun is in Canada. And I walked up to the counter and I said, "Hey, guess what's missing?" Now unfortunately for the people out West who had nothing to do with the people back east, they kind of got the wrath. They said, "Your luggage?" I said, no, no, my gun! You know, the thing that the people on the other end were so concerned about? You people lost my gun. Of course, then somebody on the, you know, behind the counter heard the word "Gun." "Bzzzz, there's a dangerous killer here, bzzzz." They finally tracked it and I swear to you he looked up and he said, "It's currently in Montreal." Canada? Canada! First of all, we don't necessarily have the most competent people working at the airport. They've kind of lost their vigilance. When George Bush changed their uniforms from white to blue shirts because people weren't respecting the TSA, and do you remember this? And so they change their uniforms and they changed them from white to blue, I thought to myself, that's not the reason we don't listen to them. That's not the reason why we don't respect them.

Now, as you have heard earlier, I do listen to them. I don't usually listen to me or anybody else, but I do usually listen to them because I know the power that they wield and I understand how miserable they can make my life. That's not all TSA agents by any stretch of the imagination and it's not all airports by any stretch of the imagination. But you don't need to change the uniforms. Let's use human intelligence, hmmm? And hire some humans from time to time that have some intelligence. Or use their eyes. And if you want to fix it, there's no more technology that we need. It is a right to fly on a private carrier I'm sorry, it's not a right to fly on a private carrier. It's a privilege. Let's have the private industry screen their own people like El Al does and you know what? Nobody's going to get on a plane with the underwear and a bomb in it. Call me crazy.

 

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."
