Glenn Beck: Surprised Massachusetts Race Is Close?





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on Fox News Channel

All eyes are on Massachusetts for the big election Tuesday. Who's going to fill Ted Kennedy's Senate seat? Oh, the suspense!

Everyone in the media seems shocked that a Republican is on the verge of winning in Massachusetts. It's weird — I mean, "Republican from Massachusetts" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. But not only are they shocked, but the media is horrified at the prospects of a Republican winning there:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

AMY ROBACH, 'THE TODAY SHOW': All right, well, we want to talk about a crisis potentially looming here at home. Massachusetts, the president is making a last-minute trip to Boston tomorrow to campaign for Democrat Martha Coakley.

DAVID SHUSTER, MSNBC: Has Democratic-leaning Massachusetts lost its mind?

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE, MSNBC: With just four days to go in the race for Teddy Kennedy's Senate seat, a new poll is terrible news for Democrats. The 60th vote in the Senate; maybe health care hanging in the balance. Chuck, I'm interested now. NBCs deputy political director, Mark Murray, joins us now. This is bad.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

The media may be surprised, but I'm not. Because I think the days where people just vote Democrat or Republican no matter what are seeing the beginning of the end. For so long we've bought into the Republicans and Democrats' game; identified ourselves as one or the other, and put that label ahead of a much more important one: American.

Progressives have put their agenda into hyper-drive and it's so crystal clear that their final goal is anything but American:

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE BARACK OBAMA: We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

Both Republican and Democratic voters have snapped out of that slumber. Because if there is one thing that can unite people of all political persuasions, it's that we do not want to be like France. Even Michael Moore agrees with that.

It's an insult to the people of Massachusetts to react with shock because they put some actual thought into their vote. Maybe they are discovering who Martha Coakley is?

Just last week, a journalist was pushed to the ground while trying to ask her a question. Whether or not it was on purpose, who knows? But Coakley's response was telling. She claimed: "I'm not sure what happened. I know something occurred, but I'm not privy to the facts."

But she apparently knew enough "facts" to say that "Republican stalkers" caused it. Unfortunately for Coakley, one of those pesky photographers caught a photo of Coakley watching the incident take place.

Oops.

When talking about Catholics, Coakley said this:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

MARTHA COAKLEY, CANDIDATE FOR U.S. SENATE: You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn't work in the emergency room.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Coakley is yet another politician who made an "honest mistake" on finances. On her financial disclosures for her senate run, she claimed to have no personal assets. Turns out she was off by over $200,000 — oops.

And then there was Coakley's involvement in the Fells Acres Day Care Center preschool trial — a case that garnered national attention. Three daycare workers were convicted on very weak accusations of child abuse. Even when judges overturned convictions and the governor's board of pardons and paroles unanimously voted to commute Gerald Amirault, Coakley stuck by the story despite the lack of evidence. She's trying to look tough on crime.

But, there's one more: Coakley is the attorney general, the head law enforcement figure in the state. And not only does she fail to get the support of the State Police Association of Massachusetts and several police unions, she fails to get the support of the Cambridge Police Patrol Officers Union — her husband, is a retired Cambridge police officer. I mean, is her husband going to vote for her?

It's amazing the race is even close considering how bad of a candidate she is. Public Policy Polling has her trailing Scott Brown by a 51-46 percent margin. Suffolk has it at 50-46 percent — this is within the margin of error. With the progressives' dream of mandated health care possibly on the line, you can only imagine how ugly this thing will get if it's — God help us all — "too close to call." Coakley supporters have friends in high places.

If it's close enough for a recount, I don't want to see some idiot looking at a hanging chad trying to figure out the intent of the voter. I think that was the first time America was clued in to the fact our voting system had serious problems.

I was there in Florida during that re-count debacle in 2000 and I was in favor recounting the whole state. But Democrats thought that by cherry picking certain areas, by manipulating the system, they would have a better chance winning. Of course, that backfired and by all accounts if Democrats would have recounted the entire state, Gore would have pulled it out.

The loss was their own fault; they were so incompetent, they didn't even know how to cheat. But mention the 2000 election to someone on the left and it's still: "George W. Bush stole the election!"

Do you know who this is?

Of course you do: She was Florida's Republican secretary of state, Katherine Harris, who certified presidential theft! She committed a crime against American democracy! Even John Stewart parodied Harris:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JON STEWART, 'THE DAILY SHOW': Katherine Harris made it official by signing the certification papers. Then she passed the papers on to a second commissioner. Finally, they got the ultimate seal of approval signature from Lobster Boy.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

She was on "SNL" all the time.

Now, let me ask you: Do you recognize this face?

Of course you don't. Because Democrats don't consider it a crime against democracy when they win — like Al Franken's Minnesota senate race. He's Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie; an ACORN-supported guy — handpicked by the George Soros funded SOS Project. SOS is designed specifically to have control of the power in close elections. Lesson learned, apparently.

So if it's close in Massachusetts, William Francis Galvin will "decide" the election. But don't plan on seeing him called stupid or parodied on "SNL." Even thought Galvin has said that if Scott Brown wins, it will take "a while" to certify him. That's weird, because in 2007, as the Boston Herald points out, Representative Niki Tsongas was sworn in at the U.S. House of Representatives on Oct. 18, 2007 — just two days after winning a special election.

I don't believe, as an American, regular Democrats or Republicans steal elections. But progressives do. It's practically a bylaw in any of their many manifestos.

Over the weekend, Ed Schultz said this:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

ED SCHULTZ, 'THE ED SCHULTZ SHOW': I tell you what, if I lived in Massachusetts I'd try to vote 10 times. I don't know if they'd let me or not, but I'd try to. Yeah, that's right. I'd cheat to keep these bastards out. I would.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Of course he would. His partner in crime also longed for some good old-fashioned cheating:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CHRIS MATTHEWS, MSNBC: You know in the old days, maybe I shouldn't be harkening back to the old days, if the Democrats faced this kind of a disaster in the works, you'd go back to your ones, the people you were sure are going to vote Democrat, and you'd make sure they got to the polling place, you'd get them lunch, you'd get them a car. You'd make sure they got there.

And in some cases you'd be buying people to get them, not officially buying them, but getting them there as block secretaries, as block captains, you'd be getting them there with street money, legitimate but it's a little bit old school.

But I hear, talking to somebody, today there aren't people up there in Massachusetts like that anymore. There aren't those automatic Democrat votes out there, those ones anymore.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Oh, the horror! You mean they can't buy votes in Massachusetts anymore? What's next: ACORN won't allow underage prostitution?

It doesn't matter to them because they've been told it's OK by people like Saul Alinsky, a hero to the extreme left. How do I know he's a hero?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MATTHEWS: Well to reach back to one of our heroes from the past, from the '60s, Saul Alinsky...

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Saul Alinsky is the "ends justify the means" guy. Do what it takes, no matter what. And here's the most important thing to understand: It's not just about elections. It's about all of it:

• Steal $2.3 million from banks like Robert Creamer did? Hey, if you were spreading that wealth around to the poor then it's OK

• Health care reform: Behind closed doors, shady deals, bribing politicians, bankrupting America? Just get it done

• And remember those whale protestors who actually attacked and rammed into a Japanese whaling ship? (ADD moment, your honor: Whales? I mean, they're great and everything, but when you are risking life and limb to stop someone from catching a whale — wow. Who's daddy didn't love them?) Anyway, the boat that sunk the Japanese ship is from Paul Watson's organization.

Watson's a great guy — a progressive. He's the guy who was featured in that "Whale Wars" reality show, where he routinely resorts to physical violence against humans to save an animal. He has reportedly said that if you don't know an answer, a fact, a statistic, then... make it up on the spot. And "there's nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win. Then you write the history."

Attacking a civilian boat, ramming a bill through, voting 10 times in Massachusetts — they can spin it in the history books. They saved the whales. They achieved health care for all. They fundamentally transformed America.

Americans are starting to wake up to it, even Democrats — even Democrats in Kennedyville. They know something isn't right. And that something is the uber-left. The Van Jones, communist-loving radicals. The Chairman Mao admirers in the White House, like the Ron Blooms of the world, who says he agrees with Mao about power coming from the barrel of a gun.

I don't believe the majority of Americans think like these people do. But they don't care. If you don't believe these radicals think they are superior to you, that they will run you over if you get in the way of their do-gooding for greater good, then you don't understand history.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
