Glenn Beck: Financial bill = crap sandwich

GLENN: All right. So... read the bill. I read the bill.

Now we have this financial reform bill, and here's the great thing about it. It gives the president the opportunity to take over businesses that the president or the treasury believes are too big to fail. It doesn't define that, other than it could be a threat to the nation, to the financial stability of the nation. Well, there's a lot of things that could be — I mean, couldn't Weiner have made that case against gold companies? Mark my words. They will. Couldn't somebody make that against Fox News? Because they're talking down the economy. They're saying these things won't work. Of course it won't work, if everybody says it won't work. It's a threat to the economy.

Now, I know those are extreme cases, but when do you stop thinking, well, that will never happen. At what point does this country start waking up and going, well, now, wait a minute, some really crazy things that we said would never happen here are happening! Probably about the time that you start thinking, man, I really hope there's a lake of unquenchable fire that burns for all eternity but does not consume.

PAT: I thought we had gotten past that particular issue.

STU: Why are you just trying to antagonize the media? Why do you do this? You just antagonize them.

GLENN: Antagonize?

STU: Just to taunt them and I don't know that that's necessary.

GLENN: Because they're so easy.

STU: To get fired up? It is true.

PAT: That's true.

STU: You make a good point and it is —

GLENN: It's so easy. It's my only pleasure in life. It really is.

STU: But to intentionally try to fire them up, I mean, is that really what you should be doing? This may be a larger philosophical question or potentially —

GLENN: Maybe the media would be all fired up, they could all get together and pretend that they are a lake of unquenchable fire.

STU: You are doing it again.

GLENN: Are you telling me the newsrooms — you walk through newsrooms. You are telling me they are not already in hell?

STU: They don't look —

GLENN: They are in hell.

STU: They don't look happy typically.

GLENN: No, they are not.

STU: It doesn't look like a warm and inviting environment.

GLENN: No, you know what is a warm environment? Hell! Where there's a lake of unquenchable fire that burns but does not consume.

So anyway, the president has this authority to just take over businesses. Okay. But in Section 112 they set up a council. Like this. And this will all be put together by our new regulatory czar. And there's a council, and the duties and purposes of this council in Section 112(B), to promote market discipline by eliminating expectations on the part of shareholders, creditors and counterparties of such companies that the government will shield them from losses in the event of failure.

So we've already taken over General Motors, we've already taken over the biggest insurance company, AIG, we've already taken over the financial sector. What else have we — what else have we deemed?

PAT: Healthcare.

GLENN: What?

PAT: Healthcare.

GLENN: Healthcare. Now we have all of these things, but how this is going to work. We are giving the president more power to take companies over if they're too big to fail. We don't have to go through congress anymore. They can just do it. But there's also a council in the same bill that gives the president authority that says we're setting up a council to tell people that that is not going to happen.

Are these people, are they schizophrenic? Are they insane? Or are they from a lake of fire that burns forever but does not consume? Because consuming things is bad.

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."
