GLENN: I want to talk to those people who have listened and you may not have moved on my words before. I talked to a woman yesterday. She said, Glenn, my husband and I have listened to you for a long time. She said, I was listening to you one day with three years ago when you said, please, if you're in the stock market, please get your money out; someone must have something remaining, please get your money out. She said, we listened to you then. She said, I heard it and I was going to talk to my husband. My husband came in the door and he said, honey, I need to talk to you, I just listened to Glenn Beck and he said get the money out and it just sounds right to me, we've got to get our money out. She said, you saved, you saved our money. Let me tell you something. I didn't. Because that call went out to millions of people and very few people actually acted on it. Those who did saved their money. I could be wrong. I'm not an economist, I'm not a I'm not an expert on society or religion. I'm not an expert on anything. I come to you as a, just a regular Schmo that quite honestly is an undereducated man. I'm a self educated man. I am an entertainer. No matter what the press wants to use that as a smear, that's who I am. That's what I've always done with my life. But I'm talking to you now as a citizen and as a dad.

I want to give you what I have told you in the last four years. When it comes to the economy, I told you that we weren't headed for a recession; we're headed for a depression, the ultimate depression. I have told you, be very careful with your money. I have told you, I don't know why anybody has their money in the stock market. It's bogus! I have told you and gotten so much heat for saying that the Dow would end up, if it was lucky, at 5,000. I have told you, make a decision on your home. I've told you that I've been trying to sell my home now for, what, two years? But I live in the Northeast in town where it's 95% Wall Street. I have friends who built, who built a $5 million home. That's what it cost them to build it, a $5 million home. They sold it for 1.5. Almost every home in my neighborhood is up for sale. I told you things weren't going to get better; buckle up. I told you that the rich are getting out.

Now let me give you the headlines from today. All of those things I have been hammered for. I told you these things three years ago. I've also told you I don't know the timing of things. I can see over the horizon on some things, I can see the general direction of where we're headed, but I don't know when it's going to happen. It could happen tomorrow, it could happen five years from now. I don't know. I also, I also don't have any idea why I have this ability to see over the horizon other than it's my job. We all have our job, and you in your job, no matter what it is, it's a calling. You have the ability to listen, if you want to be in California, to the universe, or listen to the word of God for your calling in your family in your personal life. Well, my calling is to be on the radio every day and comment about what's happening. And quite honestly if it hadn't have been for my bottoming out, if I hadn't lost everything, if I hadn't have lost my friends, my family, my fortune, my house, everything, if I hadn't have lost everything, and the most important thing was my good name, my ability to look a person in the eye and say, no, really, this is true, and have anybody believe me. If I hadn't have lost everything, I wouldn't have been to a place to where I said, I will never tell a lie because all I want is someone to believe me again when I say something that is true. When you do that, life becomes very easy because you no longer have to keep track of what you said, but extraordinarily hard. Because you say things that you don't want to say. You say things that are unpopular. Is there enough money in the world? Is there enough fame in the world for someone to put themselves in a position to where they know how they'll be remembered in history and it won't be good? Is there enough money? Is there enough fame? The answer to that is no. How evil and irresponsible would I be to have the platform that I have. What kind of monster would I have to be to have the platform that I have and say these things if I didn't believe them? How insane would I be? There are those within the sound of my voice that say, damn right, just as insane as I think you are. There is not enough money and fame for me to live the rest of my life with people like you saying that about me to my children! So maybe you're the one that might be a little misguided. Because it's those voice that have been telling you not to listen to me because the Dow at 5,000 is crazy, because a total collapse of our system is out of you've got to be out of your mind to believe that! We're America! That will never happen! That we're in a depression, we're headed for a depression, not a recession. "That's crazy talk! He's fear mongering!" Those are the voices that are controlling most of this country right now.

Here are the headlines today. Worries about recovery deepen. Hindenburg Omen, which you heard about on this program. Hindenburg Omen happened again last week. The Hindenburg Omen means that there's a 77% chance that the market will correct itself by at least 5%. The Hindenburg Omen, when it happens in September or October, has been the has been the crash of 19, what was it, 1989, the crash of 1929? Does October or September come to mind? It happened again last week. If it happens once, there's a 77% chance of a crash. If it happens twice, all bets are off, as I told you two weeks ago. It's happened twice, and it almost happened three times, in the last ten days.

Next headline: Investors are scattering to safety. Next one: Drop in home prices renew pricing fears. The largest drop in home prices the largest drop in home sales since LBJ. Next headline: Dow faces bouncy ride to 5,000! Next headline: CNBC, economy in depression, not recession.

Look , if you have listened before and haven't acted, maybe you have regretted that. If you have listened before and have reacted because you've seen the pattern, you've seen that I'm not right all the time, but I've got a pretty good track record. I have a much better track record than Joe Biden who says we're moving in the right direction. I beg of you, I beg of you, please, please, please listen to what I have to say today. Please.

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!"
