GLENN: Look, you know what's amazing, what's amazing to me is and this is the point, America. The media is going to do what the media does, and I am I got to this place over the holiday when I was when I was on vacation last week, when I was headed out to the boat and somebody said, umm, Glenn, the ambassador to Pakistan would like you to come out against the burning of the Koran.

PAT: Had that same problem over the weekend, didn't you, Stu, with the ambassador of Botswana.

STU: I believe he's the am bass tore to Belize was yeah, all of them.

GLENN: I just turned around and I said, the what? Huh?

STU: That was bizarre.

PAT: That is weird.

GLENN: It is totally bizarre, totally bizarre.

PAT: Have you ever seen, I can't remember I was thinking of that over the weekend. I don't think I've ever seen an ambassador from another nation call on a television or radio host to denounce anything.

GLENN: Never, never.

PAT: We really need Glenn Beck to

GLENN: You know what that says. You know what that says. A couple of things. One, that's how much trouble America is in on leadership, okay?

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: That's the real message you should get here. But the other is, the rest of the world is looking at America, and they are seeing lack of leadership. So who has the ear of the American people? Who has any influence with the American people? Well, the Pakistanis apparently believe I do.

Here's the best news. When I heard that about the Pakistani thing, first of all, I did, I wrote

STU: Yeah, he should subscribe to the e mail newsletter because you

GLENN: Yeah, I wrote something, what, two days before, the day before.

PAT: On vacation?

STU: Did you get paid for that? Did you get paid for that? I want that donated to Pakistani charities.

GLENN: (Laughing). So anyway, what I realized was, over vacation because I had time to get away from everything. It's almost sad to watch the once great lion of the republic, the press, just implode. And he just don't they're flailing. They don't know what to do. They just don't know what to do. They don't know how to explain it, they don't know what's going on. Time magazine wrote something gosh, I saw it on Saturday going up to Alaska. What was it, in oh, it was on 8/28. It said Glenn Beck, he gathers all these people here, but he didn't even know what to do with them. He left them all confused and going home. No, no. The only ones that were confused were the reporters. You are so out of step and out of touch with the American people that you don't it's sad. So the message that we need to be focusing on on the media is, they are so far behind in your rearview mirror, it doesn't matter. You have already won. You've already won. Now it's just making sure that you're consistently doing the things that you say that are important to do. I believe faith, hope and charity. I believe these are the things that are going to turn and transform the country. And it doesn't, it doesn't matter. Just don't you be ashamed of what you believe. Don't do it anymore. Don't be a mouse, don't be like, well, I really don't want no. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Say it with love in your heart. But remember Jesus turned over a few tables himself. You don't go there's no reason to burn a Koran. Those who want to burn books will destroy themselves. And those who want to chop people's heads off because they're homosexuals and the Koran says that that's well, they will destroy themselves as well. As long as you do one thing: Know what you believe and take a stand.

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."
