Stu and Pat: Add Kagan, subtract Romer



Learn more about the Restoring Honor Rally, 8/28 in Washington DC...

PAT: All right. A couple of things that we haven't gotten to yet. Elena Kagan was confirmed yesterday. Vote was 63 37. You know all the usual suspects, I mean, Lindsey Graham obviously voted for her.

STU: Yeah. Do you need more than that?

PAT: Do you need more? I doubt it.

STU: You get

PAT: 63 37. So that means, I don't know, how many Republicans? Eight, ten? No, twelve? No, okay, it's only three.

STU: It was only a few, yeah.

PAT: It was only three. Because it's like 58 41 or 59 41.

STU: Once the vote was secured, all the people, Scott Browns of the world who were probably on the fence were free to vote no. But, you know, she's in and we gain Elena Kagan and we lose Christina Romer, the economic adviser who is dropping out.

PAT: And one fine looking woman. I mean, what a hot babe.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: It's really a shame that we lost her.

STU: Luckily, though, we're replacing her with Kagan in the new cycle. So the hotness factor will not drop too far.

PAT: That's true.

STU: But yeah, if you don't know who she is, she is the one who authored the 8% unemployment report, remember at the beginning of the administration when they said if we get the stimulus, we're not going to see anything above 8% in unemployment. And basically it immediately was proven wrong.

PAT: Okay, so she was 2 points off. It's been 10%.

STU: What's 2.

PAT: And this past July it stayed 9.1% but we lost 131,000 jobs last month.

STU: We're still losing jobs ?

PAT: Hemorrhaging jobs. "Well, at least we're not hemorrhaging jobs anymore." Yeah, we are again. So now you own the economy, you own the jobs, you said you turned it around, you reversed the process and now the process is back to hemorrhaging jobs again. Where do you go with that? They've bitten off a really tough thing for us to chew here.

STU: They have taken ownership here.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And for the first time you are seeing that reflected in polls. There's a Rasmussen poll the other day. I believe it was the first time they had found, they asked the same question, I believe it's every month which is, who do you blame for the economy, whose problems. And it still has been Bush by a slight amount for a while. For the first time now people are blaming Obama more for the economy.

PAT: And that, of course, is unfair. John Kerry told us that.

KERRY: In the last six months I think there was even an article in the paper this week.

STU: An article in the paper?

KERRY: About people no longer blaming Bush. They are beginning to target this White House. That's a natural

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Oh, my.

KERRY: course of events.

PAT: Already?

KERRY: As you go through any administration. But I don't think it's fair to the president.

PAT: No, it's not fair.

KERRY: The president just passed I mean, think about what just happened.

PAT: I'm thinking.

KERRY: We just passed the most significant

PAT: I know.

KERRY: And important.

PAT: Sweeping.

KERRY: Regulatory reform legislation in 40, 50 years?

PAT: We just passed the most unbelievably capitalist crushing legislation ever passed in this country.

STU: We've done everything we can to make sure this country goes into the crapper for decades to come. Why is it getting blamed?

PAT: They don't appreciate that, Stu. People don't appreciate that we are fundamentally transforming America from capitalist system to a socialist one.

STU: Yeah. It is hard.

PAT: They don't appreciate it.

STU: That is a lot of heavy lifting.

PAT: And it's only been 19 months and already people are starting to blame this president. This president has nothing to do with the economy. It's George W. Bush!

STU: With the exception of cap and trade, they've had pretty much everything they opened for in this first 18 months.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: That has been passed.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Healthcare and the stimulus. And the stimulus was nothing but 15,000 projects that they have wanted for years and years and years. And then financial and everything else, I mean, how much do you need? You spent trillions of our dollars. How much do you need until maybe it's partially your responsibility?

PAT: And already they're starting to blame us. I don't understand it! It's only been a couple of days, like 795.

STU: (Laughing). You've had complete control.

PAT: Complete control.

STU: No one can stop you.

PAT: Everything, yeah.

STU: Nobody can stop you. The occasional filibuster only since Scott Brown is possible, but really it's been an essentially unfettered path for them to do whatever they wanted for two years almost.

PAT: Crazy, yeah.

STU: You know, they still are perplexed that anyone would even look at them for blame.

PAT: Which is unbelievable.

STU: They are just shocked. They can't understand it.

PAT: You look at it and you see it and you read about it and you hear it every single day and it's still hard to believe. It's really hard. And they get away from it, from the rest of the press, other than us, you know, talk radio and Fox, they get away with 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."
