Glenn Beck: Ironic -- Harry Reid says GOP has lost sanity

GLENN: Harry Reid has said now that the GOP has lost sanity or their principles by calling for a hearing on birthright citizenship.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: Okay. We are the only country in the world that has anchor babies and do you know why we have anchor babies? We have anchor babies because the Democrats in Reconstruction tried to say, "Oh, well, you can free the slaves, but they're not citizens. So when they have a baby, the baby's got to go back to Africa." Really, Democrats? That's that was as good as you had? That's what it was. That's why we had anchor babies. We had to put that into the Constitution so you couldn't claim that they weren't citizens. Well, now, look what it's turned into. There was no Sunset on that. Oh, wow, kind of almost like now the PATRIOT Act. It's going to turn out to be really something very, very good. So he says they lost sanity or principles by calling for a hearing on birthright citizenship. Unfortunately for Harry Reid, there's something called an audio vault.

REID: If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn't enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? No sane country would do that.

PAT: No.

REID: Right?

PAT: Right.

REID: Guess again.

PAT: Uh oh.

REID: If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with U.S. citizenship.

PAT: Shocking, Harry.

REID: And guarantee of full access to all public and social services this society provides. And that's a lot of services.

PAT: Yes, it is.

REID: Is it any wonder that 2/3 of the babies born at taxpayer expense, country, county run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers.

PAT: That was Harry Reid in 1993.

GLENN: Now, hang on just a second. Could you play just the beginning of that again?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Just play the beginning of that.

REID: If making it illegal

GLENN: Stop for a second. Because he said recently that GOP has lost its sanity or its principles by calling for a hearing on birthright citizenship.

REID: If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn't enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant. No sane country would do that.

GLENN: Okay, stop.

REID: Right?

GLENN: Hang on just a second. So no sane country would offer citizenship as a birthright.

PAT: And a reward for illegal aliens.

GLENN: No sane country would do that.

PAT: And yet now you're insane

GLENN: If you want to question it.

PAT: Yeah. Huh.

GLENN: Wouldn't it be nice if people like Harry Reid had principles?

PAT: It would. It would.

GLENN: You know, I say this, I say this as a member of his same faith, but he said, you know, he doesn't understand how people can be, you know, GOP if they're what did he say exactly?

PAT: If they're Hispanic I think was the

GLENN: Yeah, if they're Hispanic, he doesn't know how they can be a member of the

REID: I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay? Do I need to say more?

PAT: No, Harry, I think that's dumb enough.

GLENN: Harry, I would love to have a conversation with you because I don't know how you understand the principles of our particular faith and you are, you are doing the things that you do. Not all of them. I mean, look, I know a lot of people that I disagree with in my faith. I vehemently disagree with a lot of people in my faith on political stuff. But some of the stuff, I don't understand it. And I would love to have a conversation with him and figure out, how do you make that work.

PAT: Well, he's obviously drifted into extremism like I mean, he was against birthright citizenship in 1993. He thought it was insane.

GLENN: How did he do that?

PAT: Now all of a sudden, he is so much for it that he wants to investigate the people or he wants to disparage the people who are calling for a hearing to fix the situation. I mean, how does that even happen?

GLENN: I don't know. I don't know.

PAT: It's bizarre.

GLENN: Is he for

PAT: Bizarre.

GLENN: He was also, helped steamroll the healthcare which included abortion, and he knew it. Any sane person knew it. How do you do that? And I know he's a you know, he's a I don't question his I don't question his salvation or anything like that. I just don't know how people make those connections in their heads if you're really truly a devout member of any faith and your faith is strong against abortion, et cetera, et cetera. I don't know how he does that. Now, again I'm not questioning. I just, I would love to hear the explanation. Because people like me, I'm disparaged because I'm of the same faith as Harry Reid. And yet he gets a pass. Why? Because he's passing all the things that I happen to be against that are faith based, and I don't get it. I don't get it.

STU: It has nothing it's all about politics.

GLENN: Yeah, and I would love to hear and I mean this as an honest question. I would love to hear his explanations for those in a theological sort of way. How do you make that leap in your head

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: to be where you're at if you indeed are a practicing member of the faith. I don't understand it.

STU: And all indications are that he is.

GLENN: Oh, no, no. I know he is.

PAT: Oh, he is.

GLENN: I know he is.

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."
