Glenn Beck: Is Eric Massa Credible?

 




Watch

Glenn Beck weekdays at 5 pm ET on Fox News Channel

Democratic Congressman Eric Massa from New York resigned on Monday.

He says Democrats ran him out because he was against health care. Let me make this clear: My interview with Massa is not because he's on my side on health care; he wants single payer health care. We don't agree. In fact, we don't agree on pretty much anything.

He claims to have butted heads with Democrats several times and each time Rahm Emanuel tried to intimidate him into changing his mind.

Massa claims the Democrats pressured him into resigning. There were also threats of harassment investigations. He has since spoken out about the corrupt nature of Washington politics and how it's destroying the country.

That's Massa's side of the story. But is he credible?

Many are saying Massa is just out for revenge; that he's trying to deflect attention from a coming scandal. Look, I don't know the first thing about the congressman — he could be an angel or a complete dirt-bag and flying to Argentina on weekends to write poetry with his mistress or much, much worse. I have no idea. But I guarantee, if there is something that will come out, my interview will only speed it up. We'll know maybe even by the end of the day Wednesday if this guy has real skeletons in his closet.

And that's why I will recommend to him: The truth will set you free. Got something to say? Now is the time to say it. America loves the story of redemption, but they hate the story where they've been lied to.

Many people, on the left and the right, say that Massa's only on the show to save his career. If he's lying about what kind of person he is there won't be any career to ever save. But, to me, this story is not about him. Those stories will be written later and we'll ask him about him, but I'm not "60 Minutes."

This story is about Rahm Emanuel, unions, bribery, coercion and corruption. Because, is anyone saying that Emanuel is a kind, gentle soul or that unions aren't corrupting Washington with pressure and bribes?

I haven't heard anyone say that when they talk about Massa. They only talk about him and how bad it is for him. And it might be, but let's deal with the charges. Who's refuting what this man is saying? You may not think he's credible but if we capture a terrorist, don't we ask the terrorist about information on other terrorists? And don't we listen to that information and follow up on it?

This is a sitting member of Congress who had to resign making accusations against this White House. I don't know what the truth is, but we are going to sit down and try and find it.

So when watching the interview you need to ask these questions:

Do I believe that what Massa says about corruption in Washington is true? If so, does it affect me?

Do I believe he's telling the truth about himself? If not, does it affect me?

What could his possible motivations be for making all of this up?

If he were truly fighting for a clean-up of corruption and the allegations were only salty language, why would he resign?

So far the allegations range from using the "F word" to criminal activities. At this point we've got nothing but hearsay, whispers and rumors. I'm going to be asking pointed questions today. But should a man be expected to defend himself on whispers?

I told you last week about my grandfather: He was a great storyteller. You'll notice a pattern in all stories: There are three kinds of characters: heroes, villains and "there but for the grace of God go I."

You have to decide: Is he one of these three? Because this is quite a story.

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."
