Glenn Beck: Hayworth self destructs

JD Hayworth Infomercial: Free money! You never have to pay it back!

VOICE: And, now, time for Glenn Beck's amazing predictions update.

STU: And yes, Glenn, if you remember last week, late last week after hearing the J. D. Hayworth infomercial audio --

GLENN: Hang on. Do we have the J. D. Hayworth infomercial audio, because it just doesn't get any better than this? Here's a guy who is running as a different kind of politician in Arizona and, boy, boy, do I wish it were true because I think this audience know how I feel about John McCain, but to replace John McCain, a guy, a devil you already know and he's a devil, with a guy that you're going, well, wait a minute.

STU: Not the devil. A devil. Just want to make sure.

GLENN: No. The devil is located somewhere else. Here is J. D. Hayworth in a commercial that he did.

VOICE: $80,000 in grant money and I don't have to pay it back.

VOICE: We award this grant for up to $1.3 million. Is we don't have to pay any of it back.

VOICE: How much money -- I mean, did I hear right, billions?

VOICE: Hundreds of billions.

VOICE: Hundreds of billions of dollars. Wow. Forgive me if I sound like a sceptic, because that's a lot of money. Sounds too good to ve true. Is it for real?

VOICE: It is for real. Now, I understand the skepticism in part because President Reagan used to say the greatest contradiction ever uttered was, I'm from the Government and I'm here to help. But I'm --

GLENN: (Laughter.)

VOICE: This is really true. About 25 years ago a decision made to get money in the hands of the American people and we talk about it as if it's free money. Let me remind you, it's not free money. It's your money.

GLENN: Oh.

VOICE: It's money you've already surrendered to the government in terms of taxation.

GLENN: Oh. Okay. Stop, stop, stop. So, the guy who in this infomercial says, I just got a million and a half dollars from the Federal Government and the best part is I don't have to pay it back, he had given a million and a half dollars in taxes?

STU: Yes. He's a multi billionaire who had paid --

GLENN: That's fantastic. So, what was my prediction last week?

STU: You may or may not have predicted the end of his political career after this infomercial was uttered.

GLENN: No. I do believe I did say -- I said his career is over. I'm declaring his career over.

STU: Yes. And the first poll taken after this infomercial popped its ugly head up has John McCain leading J. D. Hayworth, 52 to 29, a 23-point lead and this had been a close race up until about that point.

GLENN: So, J. D. Hayworth now is going to do the honorable thing -- if he were, indeed, a different individual, he would do the honorable thing and stick to his story that he did nothing wrong. So --

STU: Well --

GLENN: That's what he's going to do.

STU: No.

GLENN: Here's what J. D. Hayworth will not do

STU: Okay.

GLENN: He will not come out and defend what he did. He's already done that. He'll not come out and defend what he did in this ad and then, when he starts to see the poll numbers get soft, he will not come out and say, You know what? Look. I do need to apologize for this. It was wrong of me and here's my wife and she's standing by me.

STU: Well, unfortunately he released a statement on the ad, a new one. This is not the first one which basically did sort of defend it. The second one said, I believe this to be a rep table firm but I did not completely check out the organization. As a former broadcaster, I often made ads for clients but I regress my association with this firm.

GLENN: I don't have a problem with his association with this firm. Do you have a -- do you have a problem with the firm? Is there something going on with the firm?

STU: There may be. I don't know.

GLENN: I mean, I think the problem here, J. D. Is you're, like, get some of this cash.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Get some of this free money!

Stu: It's not them taking free money in some different, unethical form. It's the idea that taking the free money in the first place is the problem.

PAT: We'll take the taxpayers for hundreds of billions of dollars month after month after month, from my one-bedroom apartment, and you can, too. Never pay it back.

GLENN: This guy is -- this is great.

PAT: This is great.

GLENN: This is great. You've got a guy who says he's going to cut down the deficit and he's going to be different in Washington. You're right. That would be different. To make an infomercial saying how you can take people's money in taxes, instead of cutting the budget, here's the infomercial I would -- and I believe, Arizona, this is what you are hoping you would get in a candidate.

So, is this true, Congressman? Yeah. Unfortunately it is and that's why I'm going to Washington, because I'm going to shut all these damn programs down.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Congressman, that's not really helping our infomercial.

STU: But the free book is great.

GLENN: I didn't -- look. You know, nobody can know -- you know, when you're doing a commercial for somebody, you've got to be careful. We do our due diligence here, but there's -- I can't know everything about every company. You can't be held responsible for everything that's happening in every company. I make a deal with everybody I take. If you screw my listeners, if you screw them, I am going to turn on you so hard and I will -- not only will I cancel, I will also expose you and we've never had one, because they all know before they have that meeting with me, they're warned. Okay. Glenn's going to give you a warning and you might want to -- you know. And they do. And we have -- that's why we have great clients. That's why we have people that have -- the people that I endorse have been with me for a very long time, because we have a very clear understanding. I'm not going to screw them. They're not going to screw you. And that's the deal. But can a company go bad? Sure. But that's not what we're talking about here, now, is it? Is that what we're talking about? We're talking about a guy who -- I don't care if he did a commercial with somebody. It's what the commercial was selling.

STU: It's not this specific dealer of free government grant books. It's the idea that the free government grant books get your free money and never have to pay it back is a bad concept if you're supposed to be some guy who's fiscally conservative.

GLENN: That's like me saying, Do you know what? Do you know what the biggest problem is in America is? Hookers. Hookers. And everybody knows the biggest problems are hookers and prostitutes and I'm a different kind of guy. I'm going to go and I'm going to clean those hookers up and then you're watching at 2:00 o'clock in the morning and you see an ad, Get your hookers. You can get all these hookers for free. It sounds crazy. Is that crazy, Congressman? Well, I know it sounds crazy, but it's true. Free hookers. All you have to do is call this number for all these free hookers. What? Call now and get a free hooker tote bag.

So, I'm sorry to say that prediction is coming true. Of course, he -- you know, I guess he could come out with something else. What else could he try? What else have these weasely politicians tried?

PAT: He could sell tiny classified ads out of his one-bedroom apartment. He could try that.

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?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 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."
