A war report discredited

GLENN: I am so proud of the fact to tell you I am not a journalist, and I'm not proud because I hate journalists. I actually have more respect for some journalists than I ever had. It's a hard job they're doing because telling the truth is really difficult. In today's world, very difficult. I'm proud of the fact that I come to you and say, this is who I am; I'm a conservative. I'm not a journalist. I could be wrong. I might be right. Listen to this side of the story." But nobody's doing that. And they are using -- for instance, Keith Olbermann on MSNBC is using organizations like Media Matters and he will take stuff right out of Media Matters and he will just put it right directly on the air. Well, who the hell is Media Matters? Who appointed them a gate keeper? And it's fine. If you want to credit Media Matters, if you want to say my source on this is Media Matters, then good, do it. I'm not throwing Media Matters under the bus. I'm throwing under the bus people not revealing who they are.

George Soros is one of these guys. I just picked up -- because there's a story on George Soros that has come out over the weekend and I just picked up Fusion magazine. In fact, how right on the money is this article in Fusion that's out right now. Stu, can you still order this or can we make it available online or how does this work?

STU: Yeah, they are going to have it -- slight problem there. They're going to have up on the site later today. It's going to be listed as a back issue. It's the January/February issue.

GLENN: So what we did is we did a story, if you are a Fusion subscriber, following the Soros money trail and we started with -- how cynical is it to question a philanthropist who has donated billions of dollars to hundreds of charities over the years, how cynical is it? How cynical do you have to be to say, we should question this guy? Granted it's very cynical but it needs to be done. It's not conservative hate mongering paranoia. It's not sicking the IRS on this guy. It's just, let's find out who this guy is.

In case you don't know he is one of the world's richest and most influential men, George Soros. According to Forbes he earned $840 million in 2006 through his Soros fund management. All of those came after he wrote articles and books titled the Capitalist Threat. He made $840 million in a year after he wrote a book called the Capitalist Threat and the Bubble of American Supremacy. Nothing surprising about the super wealthy in America claiming that America is such a horrible place. But what this man wants to do is create a conceptual, using his words, a conceptual framework of an open society and what it represents. In his book Open Society, Reforming Global Capitalism he says quote, open society stands for freedom, democracy, rule of law, human rights, social justice and social responsibility as a universal idea. Now, how much you're willing to reform in order to achieve that idea is open to a myriad of interpretations, and it is another matter entirely. Someone so intent on openness, it's worth noting that Soros was found guilty of insider trading by a French court in 2002 due to his connection to take over attempt of one of the main banks in France. He's also known as, quoting, the man who broke the bank of England in 1992 after selling the British pound short and netting over a billion dollars in one day. That's who George Soros is. The guy who broke the bank of England. What are his intentions? What is he funding?

Here's a story that nobody wants to talk about. Nobody in the mainstream press. And it is the story about the 655,000 Iraqi civilians that are dead. It led Rosie O'Donnell to say, 655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who's the terrorist here. Do you remember that? Also quoting the study from the 655,000 dead Iraqi civilians, Osama Bin Laden. And among the things that catch the eye of one who considers the repercussions of your unjust war in Iraq is the failure of your Democratic system, despite it raising the slogans of justice, liberty and equality, American statistics speak of the killing of more than 650,000 people of Iraq as a result of the war and its repercussions. This is Osama Bin Laden, quoting: There is no longer any doubt now. Finally the truth can be told. George Soros is funding the propaganda of Osama Bin Laden. It wasn't just Rosie O'Donnell and Osama Bin Laden embracing the report. It was embraced everywhere. It was a report, The Lancet report that said 600 -- well, let me give it to you. It came out three weeks before the elections in 2006. British medical journal, Lancet, they published a bombshell report estimating the casualties in Iraq had exceeded 650,000 since we went in in 2003. Within a release of the week -- within a week of the release it had been featured on 25 news shows, 188 newspapers and magazine articles. I'm wondering if the debunking is going to get the same play. The death toll according to this report was ten times what had been estimated by the U.S. and Iraqi governments and ten times greater than human rights groups. It was funded by the Open Society Institute, funded by George Soros. The two coauthors, Gilbert Burnham and Les Roberts, John Hopkins University, they told reporters that they opposed the war from the outset and they sent the report to The Lancet, to the editor and said, you've got to report this right now. There was no time for a peer review. The key person in collecting all of this data was an Iraqi researcher. He had failed to follow the customary scientific practice of making his data available for inspection. He also had been an official in Saddam's ministry of health. By the way, that was when the Saddam Hussein, the dictator, was attempting to end international sanctions against Iraq. He also wrote articles asserting that many Iraqis were dying from cancer because of uranium shells that the United States was using. The Lancet study was funded by George Soros. They sent the report to The Lancet on the condition that it be published before the election. The study couldn't be more unreliable. Nobody followed anything. It's because it's what the press wanted to hear. It's what the politicians wanted to hear. So it went out there and it will be dismissed as no big deal. But imagine if the -- imagine if the deaths were 650,000 and Rush Limbaugh had put together and funded a study and pushed it through and it became the iconic study and it showed that there were only 65,000 deaths. We reverse the numbers and the situation and Rush Limbaugh, his study showed that everybody accepted it and the media ran with and the Government ran with. Can you imagine if it then came out in the show that he was behind the funding and they pushed it through and the people who did it were sketchy at best and he forced it before an election. Do you think that would make the front page of every paper in America? Do you think that would be a big deal? Do you think that would be a scandal? Do you think anything that Rush Limbaugh ever touched would be painted? Of course it would be. The question is will everything that George Soros touches be tainted. The answer is no because in many cases you can't find out what George Soros touches because he's worth billions of dollars and he hides his fingerprints on everything.

This is not me saying this, by the way. This is the Wall Street Journal reporting this. Again, not saying George Soros is an evil guy. Might be, might not be. I'm not saying that we shouldn't have other sides of the story. I'm saying we're getting it jammed down our throat and we're getting it jammed down our throat by people who are undercover who are pulling purse strings, who are manipulating the news. You want to go get your news from somebody who has an agenda? That's fine. Just insist that they tell you that agenda. Don't tell me that you're fair and balanced. You know what? I'm fair and biased. And that's the way it should be. I'm fair but I'm biased. I'm not a journalist. I'm an opinion guy. That's what I do. These are my opinions.

More opinions in America, not fewer.

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."
