Glenn not radical enough?

GLENN: Line 4 with Steve in Mesa. Hello, Steve.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: Good. Go ahead.

CALLER: Well, you inspired me to start learning my history and I started with the Constitution and I'm reading the book The Politically incorrect Guide to the Constitution. And the one thing that jumped out at me when I read this is that there was a debate by our founders on whether to have a national government which is top down, you know, based on the British model or a bottom up version of the government called a federal government where the states gave the rights, you know, bottom up to the federal government. We have and they agreed to have a federal government where the states retained the rights and gave the federal government very limited rights. In fact, the Bill of Rights was first rejected by the founders because they said the federal government has no power anyway. You know, we wrote out a couple of detailed powers that the federal government has. So you don't need a Bill of Rights. It's limited in the first place. But thankfully they said, no, no, that's not good enough. The cleanest form of government is the government that is closest to the people. That's what the founders wanted. So the local government, the state government was where all the power was because the people could control it. At the federal level you no longer can control the power because it's not close to the people, hence we have morphed into a national government. Where I say, Glenn, you are not radical enough because we're not finding the next president that will give the power out of Washington back to the states. Everybody we're talking about still wants to take control of the federal government or the national government I should say now and say what to do.

GLENN: Okay. Steve, hang on just a second. America, the reason why I took Steve's call is because I knew, my phone screener just up above here says, Glenn, you're not radical enough. So I knew he was going to get to that point. But Steve, did you know this about the federal government, how long ago? When did you start learning this?

CALLER: Couple of days ago?

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: I mean, I had a general idea, but

GLENN: Steve, did you think that I was radical enough two days ago?

CALLER: Yeah, I did.

GLENN: Yeah, okay. But now that you're learning history, you are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute! We are way behind!

CALLER: Correct.

GLENN: Steve, what you do with your history, what you do with the things that you, you know, that you learn is up to you because there shouldn't be a giant control. I'm not a leader. I'm not a guy who's out here saying, hey, vote for me or anything like that. I'm a guy who is just like you. I just happened to start earlier than two weeks ago. I'm discovering a lot of this stuff for the first time as well. And what I learned last year, what I really came when I figured it out and I knew what was happening in Washington, that's when I knew you'll never beat this. If you try to beat it through politicians and through parties. You will only beat this if you educate the American people. Because then these things become self evident. We have to restore, restore. Well, how do you restore something? I want to explain that at the top of next hour because up on one of the windows in my office is a whole thing that I wrote, when was it, in June, July? I wrote this whole thing out. I came in one day and I wanted to be able to see it all the time and I don't have a blackboard in my office. I just have windows, and there's a lot of writing on my windows. And so I took an erasable marker and I started writing down restoration. It's what led me to say we must do 8/28. And I want to share that with you at the top of the hour because you will see how simple it becomes and how everybody else is going to take you right down the same path that we keep going over and over again and nothing will change. There must be a fundamental restoration to avoid a fundamental transformation.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
