GLENN: Coast to coast and you can call in live from Seattle to Los Angeles to Miami, Florida to Bangor, Maine and we now go to Jeff who is listening to us in Philadelphia at WPHD at 888-727-BECK. Hi, Jeff.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: Very good.

CALLER: You said something about global warming, fascism and a whole lot of stuff which I think you're kind of backward on, but so you don't believe in the whole global warming thing?

GLENN: Is this your first day with the show, Jeff?

CALLER: Never even listened to you before. Saw you on TV.

GLENN: I just want to recommend that you should never call in on the first day you listen because you are so uninformed, you're going to sound like an idiot.

CALLER: Thank you very much. Do we continue or is that the end?

GLENN: Oh, we can continue if you would like to. If you would like to come on as really uninformed and express your opinion on my opinion, we can do that. But I just want to warn you you're going to look like an idiot.

CALLER: That's fine. I'm pretty experienced with talk radio even though I haven't called in a year. Even lost my job partially due to the whole global warming issue.

GLENN: Did you really?

CALLER: Believe it or not.

GLENN: What happened? Were you making incandescent light bulbs at a factory?

CALLER: Well, it's kind of like differentiated. Sometimes you see too much going on at a major nonprofit and they kind of twist things and long story, I won't go into that, but --

GLENN: No, no, wait, wait. Hang on just a second. You were working for a nonprofit?

CALLER: I'd rather not talk about that because --

GLENN: Hang on. You don't have to give me the details.

CALLER: I've been indirectly threatened not to talk about it. So getting back to --

GLENN: I'm not asking you for any details. I want to know. You were working for a nonprofit and you caught them doing something wrong?

CALLER: I would rather just talk about --

GLENN: Well, you were the one that brought it up. Go ahead.

CALLER: Global warming or fascism. Or the PATRIOT Act? You even mentioned that. I mean, I'm certain you kind of try to tell your audience the truth. Now, when we look at who wrote the PATRIOT Act initially and the year it was written in, we are talking about Admirable Poindexter, a convicted common who was writing it in 1985 along with total information awareness. Now, that's a correct statement, correct, Mr. Beck?

GLENN: I don't know. You're an expert on this. Go ahead.

CALLER: Well, tell your audience. I'm sure you like to tell the truth, but that is the truth.

GLENN: We were talking about global warming and I was talking about the PATRIOT Act and said that I don't have a problem with the PATRIOT Act because it has a Sunset. If it didn't have a Sunset, I would have a real problem with the PATRIOT Act. I mean, I have a real problem -- there are times, Jeff, as you know because you are seemingly a scholar here on history. So you know. There are times that your rights as a society, they ebb and flow. They come -- they have a little give depending on what's going on in the world. I'm sure one of your favorite Presidents was FDR. So you know that he gobbled up a lot of things during the second world war and then he released them afterwards, or they were released afterwards. There is an ebb and flow. As long as there is a Sunset, as long as that power is never given to the Government and left out of the hands of the people, as long as it is loaned to the Government and it has a Sunset on it, I don't necessarily have a problem with it when you're in times of strife just like -- and you would know this about Abraham Lincoln when he was ridiculed for getting rid of habeas corpus, but that was something that he felt needed to be done at the time and then came back after the Civil War.

CALLER: Habeas corpus, the thing that the Bush administration got rid of, the people who are going to protect your freedoms, right?

GLENN: Again, Jeff, we could argue about this all day.

CALLER: Again you don't want to argue because you are basically a chicken. You are part of that right wing who hangs on the radio and propagandizes the whole country.

GLENN: See, Jeff, all of to do is name-call. I just explained my point of view. I just explained my point of view. My point of view is valid. But now you have to now name-call, which is a way that the Progressives from the early 20th century did. That is part of the fascist way of life. When you can't argue something and you don't want to accept somebody else's point of view as being valid, then the next thing you do is you name-call. You ridicule them, you make them into some sort of a bad guy by pinning certain things on them. That is the way the Progressives handle it. You're either too stupid or you're in on it.

CALLER: You want to talk about global warming then?

GLENN: Because you just lost the last argument, sure, go ahead.

CALLER: You're overtalking me like most of you fellas do. You know, if you want to talk about fascism, why don't you talk about Brown Brothers Harriman and Union Bank and the Bush family history going back to World War II, or are you too --

GLENN: That's crazy.

CALLER: Are you too chicken to talk about it?

GLENN: I know, I'm too chicken.

CALLER: Let's talk about global warming.

GLENN: Let's do it, Jeff.

CALLER: Okay. I told you I partially lost my job due to that issue and also --

GLENN: No, you didn't, but you brought up you lost your job now but you can't get into specifics twice.

CALLER: Well, that might make national news. I had a major God experience last year.

GLENN: A major -- you believe in God?

CALLER: Oh, absolutely.

GLENN: Absolutely.

CALLER: Even though my experience was ripped from me, but in any case --

GLENN: How was it ripped from you?

CALLER: Well, it kind of hurts for me to talk about.

GLENN: I know it does. I'm here to hold your hand through it.

CALLER: Well, you don't need to hold my hand. But with regard to global warming, I guess you know that the acidification of our oceans are rising to the point where our coral reefs are dying off.

GLENN: Of course, the acidification of our oceans, who doesn't.

CALLER: Right. And you also know that what they call positive feedback loops are encroaching now upon what are called negative feedback loops.

GLENN: I hate when that happens.

CALLER: Are you going to interrupt this?

GLENN: No, I'm with you.

CALLER: Do you know that in your own body what they call homeostasis equilibrium.

GLENN: Yes. Say it, finally somebody will say it.

CALLER: Also works within the environment, and negative feedback loops are actually the good thing. That's how things balance themselves out.

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: When you have positive feedback -- I hope you are listening.

GLENN: Oh, I'm listening. When you have positive feedback you said.

CALLER: Like the melting down of your ice caps, the loss of Keystone species and indicator species --

GLENN: Damn it.

CALLER: The die-off of coral reefs.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: Did you know you can have a log rhythmic exponential spiral on a moment's notice, actually no notice.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I'm having one of those spirals, Glenn.

CALLER: Dennis bye-bye, Glenn, Dennis bye-bye. Do you understand that? Did you ever read the book "The Weather Makers"?

GLENN: Have you ever read Loyal Ponte's book "The Cooling"?

CALLER: Glenn, let me take you on a different --

GLENN: Or is it Lowell Ponte?

CALLER: You know, you are talking about the --

GLENN: Hang on, have you ever read that, the cooling? Why the next ice age has already started and we need to know if we can survive it.

CALLER: That's because, Glenn, when you have --

GLENN: Don't get angry. I need to have you have another God experience.

CALLER: Glenn, when you have global warming, Glenn, you know your planet can actually tilt 5 degrees on the left field plain and you can --

GLENN: I'm just looking at the whole book here on us surviving the coming global ice age.

CALLER: You can have an ice age when you have global warming. You do know that, don't you?

GLENN: Yeah, the global ice age with global warming. So here's the point, Jeff. Here's the point. If you listened to this program before, you would know that I don't disagree with global warming. I think that the planet is changing. I believe the only thing constant in life is change. It is changing just like it has before when we -- I'm trying to find the giant SUVs that the dinosaurs drove around in, but I'm sure we'll find them at some point. What my problem with global warming is, Jeff, is that the science is not settled on how to solve it. The science on what we can do, that's where the fascism comes in. That's where the Government telling the people in California, "I'm going to control the temperature in your house with radio frequency. I'm sorry. Today it can be 68 degrees in your house. Tomorrow it can be 72 degrees. Today, I'm sorry, it can only be 55. Maybe tomorrow it can be 80." But the Government decides what they're going to do in my house. That, sir, is what I'm talking about fascism.

CALLER: Can I offer you some advice? You see the economy, you see the price of gold going up through the roof, you see that on TV right now?

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: As the global economy crashes, if you really want to, like, keep people working -- because it's funny that you even would mention the old Soviet Union.

GLENN: Give me the job tip.

CALLER: We actually agree on one thing.

GLENN: Give me the job tip.

CALLER: You see, real wealth is in the ground and in the mind and what you can do with what you have in your brain, Glenn, and what you have in the ground. That's real wealth.

GLENN: Thank you very much. That is advice that I'm going to live by every single day. Thanks so much, Jeff.

GLENN: I can't imagine why that guy lost his job. Can you imagine working with that guy? By the way, everybody, please, please do yourself a favor. Watch the national news because I feel there's a big story coming in. Jeff's going to be involved in it.

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."
