Glenn Beck: Pivotal Moment for Tea Party





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

You've seen the headlines:

"Tea Party, dead on arrival?"

"Tea Parties racked by infighting, confusion and dissent"

"Tea Partiers eat their own, in bitter internal feud"

So I invited representatives from several groups to sort it out, because I believe everyone in the fight to save the republic must come together. But first I want to go back to the Movement Action Plan that I showed you earlier this week of political movements.

It was designed in the '70s by a progressive, a guy named Bill Moyer and it eventually became known as the Movement Action Plan.

Back then, activists were trying to stop the government from following through on their goal to create at least 1,000 new nuclear power plants by the turn of the century. Moyer looked at the commonalities of all the protest movements and provided a map to follow.

He knew that creating social change required a group effort and he laid out eight stages within the plan. Stage number five is "perception of failure," a sense of powerlessness, an identity crisis. This stage takes place right when a huge success is occurring, when people begin to doubt whether they've had successes or whether everything is falling apart.

I think this may be the stage where the Tea Party is right now.

It happens in every political movement — a feeling of frustration — but you must not dismantle because of it. Our Founders understood this.

Back in the 1700s, George Whitefield tried to bring the divided 13 colonies together by preaching his "Father Abraham" sermon. The colonies didn't like each other very much before the Revolution. They were very much independent and separate entities. For 40 years, Whitefield traveled across the country to deliver a sermon to get those colonies to set aside their differences and unite on what they shared in common: A thirst for freedom.

The text of that sermon was recorded by John Adams. It went something like this:

Father Abraham, are there any Presbyterians in heaven? The answer came back, no.

Father Abraham, are there any Episcopalians in heaven? No.

Are there any Quakers or Baptists or Methodists in heaven? No, none.

So then Whitefield asked, Father Abraham, who is in heaven?

The answer came back: Christians.

With that sermon, he helped the colonists see themselves as a single people with one divine destiny coming together for a larger cause. Historians agree that had Whitefield not done what he did, the colonies might never have united to fight Great Britain.

Samuel Adams put Whitefield's message into practice in Congress in September 1774, when a motion was offered to open the first Continental Congress with prayer. That simple request met stiff resistance by some of the most devout Christians among the delegates; they argued that because the group was made up of Episcopalians, Quakers, Presbyterians and others — that they couldn't join together in the same act of worship with one another.

But Samuel Adams broke through the objections when he arose and said he was: "No bigot and could hear a prayer from a gentleman of piety and virtue, who was at the same time a friend to his country." Adams then invited Jacob Duche, an Episcopal clergyman, to lead prayers the next morning.

They all ended up not only praying together but having a Bible study that some say lasted as long as two hours.

Coming together. Standing together and putting aside what divides and focusing instead on what unites.

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."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
