Glenn Beck: 8 pennies

GLENN: I want to tell you, and a little later I'm going to get into the full details about the Hindenburg Omen. The Hindenburg Omen, that doesn't sound good. It happened on Friday and it's, it's an economic thing, says that there's a 77% chance of a crash coming our way in the next 40 days. There's trouble in the Middle East. Unemployment now is at the highest I think it's ever been for those who are 16 to 24 years old. We're talking now a lost generation. There's the beginnings of civil unrest. The debt is unsustainable. The debt is so large now that next year we could have people say, I'm not going to buy your debt anymore, I don't believe America is serious. We have problems on our border that now include Hezbollah. We have a sheriff down on our border who says we've got to abandon this town. We have to abandon an American town! And yet, the president does nothing. We have enemies within the gates. We have an attack on capitalism. There's a billboard in Phoenix, Arizona, that says we don't have a legal problem; we have a capitalism problem: We have attack on freedom. We have attack on our own energy sources. You talk to anybody in the oil industry, in Houston, in the climate summit gulf, anybody, and they will tell you there's no new drilling permits even being issued. Our military is stretched too thin and our religion is under attack. Now, you tell me is an election going to solve these problems? Do you really think getting the Republicans to take over the House is the answer to solve these problems? Maybe it delays some of it and it's important, but is that the answer? I don't know how anyone can say yes. I don't know how anybody can say, well, by not enforcing the laws, by making sure that we bail out all of the states, that we give our union buddies all of these extra favors, by going into more socialism, by going into more debt that that is the solution. There's only one solution, only one. One. And if we don't turn to him pretty soon, we're in trouble. They have told people on the steps of the Supreme Court that they cannot pray there. They have told students on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial they can't sing the National Anthem there. And last week I was told by the Kennedy Center that we could not pray there. We were told by the Kennedy Center in no uncertain terms that we could hold our event there, sure we had a contract. But they weren't told that we were going to have an opening prayer. The program is has the word divine in it, our divine destiny. We couldn't pray at the Kennedy Center. So my attorneys came to me and said, Glenn, are you willing to compromise on it? And I said, I sure am. You tell them that not only will I do an opening prayer, I'll do a closing prayer, and the entire program may be a prayer. In fact, take this down. It is a night of prayer. You'll see if you are lucky enough to get a ticket to the Kennedy Center, and they are not for sale. You will see in the program how I described it. I described it that way. So they could print that in their program at the Kennedy Center which they insisted on having after they told us we couldn't pray. I said, let me dictate this one. Friday night I was supposed to have a meeting today at 1:00 with their attorneys and I had already talked to my attorneys. Zero compromise. We asked them, where is that in your I didn't see that in your rules and regulations. "It's not written down." No prayer at a federally funded building.

Friday night I think they got a hold of Common Sense. They alerted me Friday night that they will allow prayer to happen on the stage of the Kennedy Center. I told them, thank you so much for your graciousness. I appreciate the scrap from the table. America, our religion and our faith is under attack and whether people care to realize it or not, it is. I went down to West Palm on Friday and I had some meetings with these very wealthy individuals and I asked them for their support of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Now, I don't need any more I don't need any more money to be able to cover the cost for this event. It's been paid for. I think it's been paid for in double, at least where it stands right now. This is for the this is for the guys who are fighting and dying for us. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation, this started on the trip over to Iran during the Iranian hostage crisis. And the guys on the helicopter all looked at each other, all special forces, they looked at each other and said, if you die, I'll take care of your family; if I die, will you take care of mine. And they promised each other that, yes, they would. Well, the helicopters blew up in the desert and we lost good men trying to save American citizens from a theocracy, one that is still in existence and stoning people because they're homosexual.

We have now 500 families to take care of, and the number is growing every day, 500 families. This particular organization, they take care of their schooling. They call them on their birthdays. If there's a problem with one of them in school, they could be in the fourth grade and they lost their dad. One of their brothers that was part of the force where Dad was lost gets onto a plane and flies into town and finds out from the son what's going on, what's happening to your grades. These guys honor their commitment.

So I was sitting having dinner with a group of wealthy individuals and I asked them, can you write a check? And many of them did. When I got onto the plane, I asked also what had come in during the week and Joe was there on the plane with me and he said, well, Glenn, a TV viewer just out of the blue just wrote us a check, and I want to show it to you. Here's a check for $25,000, just from a, just a viewer that just said, I want to write a check. $25,000, from their personal account. And he was going on and on about all these people who are starting to step to the plate. I said, what else did we get? And he said, well, we also got a letter in and the person said, I can't make it because I can't afford to come, but I believe in our special forces and I believe in what you're doing. And honor is the key. I wish I could come, but I can't but I wanted to show my support and this is all I could afford. In the envelope was a baggy, and this is not from a child. 8 cents, 8 pennies. I've tried to get my arms around someone as they went into their change drawer and all they had were eight pennies. I tried to get my arms around somebody who then went to the kitchen and put it in a Ziploc baggy, a used one, and then put it in an envelope. I'm replacing those eight pennies myself and I'm keeping these eight cents and putting them in my pocket as a reminder. I don't know. I remember filling up my gas tank and having to count it out in change. I remember the days that, you know, my kids didn't think that my gas tank held more than $5.27. This to me is the epitome of our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor. Have you is there anything in your life that you would give it all? Is there anything to you that is so important to you that you would go into your change drawer and count out your last eight pennies and mail them? I ask you this isn't for 8/28 because like I said, it's all paid for. This is for the guys who gave their last full measure of life for the freedom that we have taken for granted, gave their last full measure of life for the things that we didn't realize how fragile they were. Would you do me the honor of presenting the Special Operations Warrior Foundation on 8/28 with a very large check, even if it comes in 8 cents at a time. Would you go to GlennBeck.com/828. If you haven't made a donation, these are the last two weeks. Even if it's $1, $10, $25,000 or your last 8 cents. GlennBeck.com/828 for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

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."
