Glenn Beck: The primary problem...

GLENN: My name is Glenn Beck, along with Pat Gray and Steve Burguiere, otherwise known as Stu, our executive producer, and Stu has been following all of the charts, all of the numbers for the election. It is yet another primary day today. We had quite a heated discussion this morning on who we would vote for if we were in Delaware today, and I would go with what's her face.

PAT: O'Donnell?

GLENN: Whatever.

STU: It's in theory. We should make the point that we don't know anything really.

GLENN: Nope, don't. Nope.

STU: It's one of those things like the way it is presented as O'Donnell is the real conservative in the race.

PAT: And Mike Castle is, of course, not.

STU: Moderate.

PAT: And really that's accurate. I mean, I think he's pretty moderate.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah.

PAT: He's a pretty well known RINO. But the problem is in Delaware O'Donnell in the polls at least trails the Democrat candidate, whatever his name is, by 11 points. And Castle leads the Democrat by 11 points. So there's a 22 point swing there. So you want the conservative, but you're torn because there is a chance.

GLENN: Torn between two lovers.

STU: Oh, sing it.

PAT: Or in this case

GLENN: Okay, here's the thing.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Here's the thing. America, may I, may I express that these two very intelligent men have become clowns today.

STU: Have we?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Here's how. You guys, what is the definition of insanity?

STU: Let me look that up.

PAT: Glenn Beck?

(Laughter by all).

GLENN: Oh, man.

PAT: That is rich.

GLENN: You got me on that one.

PAT: That's rich.

GLENN: Okay. So what is the definition of insanity? It's doing the same thing.

PAT: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

STU: The second album from melodic death metal band Darkane. It's like I don't understand what that has to do with this conversation.

PAT: I don't, either.

GLENN: Here's the thing. We find ourselves in this same situation. This is the argument that people gave for John McCain.

STU: No.

GLENN: Yeah, it is.

STU: It's totally different situation.

PAT: It is a different situation.

STU: Totally different situation.

PAT: And here's why.

GLENN: He was running for president.

PAT: Let's at least lay out the scenario.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: There's obviously most people think Republicans win back the House, but there's also a chance now that they could do the ten person swing in the Senate and regain control of the Senate as well, and Delaware is one of the keys, if not the key to making that happen. So you want the best chance possible. As much as we aren't all about Republicans, we are about conservative values and there's a better chance we might see some and put a stop to some of this madness if

STU: Wow, that was not the whole scenario. He cut you off.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: Because I get it.

PAT: You get it but others may not.

STU: And there's more to it, I think.

GLENN: Are you calling the American people stupid?

PAT: No, I'm not.

GLENN: That's what I heard, Stu.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Is that what you heard?

STU: That's what Cass Sunstein said, the Homer Simpson America. That's what Pat Gray believes.

GLENN: Wow. Here he is.

PAT: You had a chance to turn on me, you turn.

STU: I'm Arlen Specter. Any party that wants me.

PAT: Really?

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Arlen "Stu" Specter.

GLENN: Here's the

PAT: I didn't leave Pat Gray's position. Pat Gray left me.

GLENN: How many tea party people have destroyed the Republican candidate.

PAT: I'm not done.

STU: Many. Many, many, many. I don't know the number.

GLENN: I think it's like we're up to eight now, isn't it?

STU: I would say probably more than that.

GLENN: Eight where no, no, no. Eight where everyone thought, no, they don't have even a chance.

STU: Yeah, I mean, and Christine O'Donnell is one of these.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: She ran against Biden last time and lost by 30.

GLENN: Okay. So here you have the tea party movement. And me personally, I would vote for what's her face. I know nothing about her.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Because you've got to break the back of the people like Trent Lott. If you don't, if you don't get progressives out of the Republican Party, if you don't chase with a broom people like John McCain, people like Lindsey Graham, the republic doesn't stand a chance. It's not going to work. It won't last. Because there's no choice. There is suicide by gunshot to the head or suicide by cocaine powder, slowly.

STU: But I think there's a larger picture here, and just look at it in a different way for a second.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: You're talking about taking, accepting a progressive as a Republican presidential candidate. Well, we can take we've had nonprogressive Republican. We had a Ronald Reagan. We can get Ronald Reagan in that position.

GLENN: Here's the problem no, no, no.

STU: There's no evidence we can get Ronald Reagan in the Senate in Delaware right now.

GLENN: Here is and I get that. But you've got to look at

STU: It's okay in Massachusetts maybe but not Lindsey Graham in South Carolina.

GLENN: I get it.

STU: We can get Jim DeMint in South Carolina.

GLENN: I get it that you have to have more liberal conservatives in places like California or Massachusetts, and I understand about Lindsey Graham because there's no excuse for Lindsey Graham.

STU: None.

GLENN: None. However, we're running out of time. And if anybody thinks that this November election is going to be the end all and be all and it's going to solve our problems and it's I don't even know if it slows our problems down. With them winning the House and the Senate. Don't, don't you dare think that it's beyond the realm of possibilities. Tonight we're going to show you I mean, what, did we just spend two hours this morning working on some stuff that we're going to bring on the radio show and television tonight about Frances Fox Piven and what's happening in England, all of the ties over there, what's happening with Cass Sunstein and nudging, and also what's happening with people on violence. I mean, I'm just not convinced that when you get a Republican let's just say you win the Republican Senate and the Republican House of Representatives and they say we're going to start cutting. You're not going to have enough to override a veto. So you are going to start cutting, and what is the president going to do? The president is going to they are already doing it with John Boehner. How many times has he said the name John Boehner in the last 24 hours? John Boehner has no power yet. He's already saying he's already said that it was the Republicans that stopped healthcare. No, they didn't have a chance to stop healthcare. It was your own people. He's blaming it on the Republicans for the taxes. Well, excuse me? You've already got, what, four, five Democrats that say, we're not standing with the president on tax hikes. We've got to have we've got to continue the Bush tax cuts or it will kill the economy.

So what you're going to have is the president is going to have all this fuel and he's going to go right directly mark my words. Van Jones is already doing it right directly to the most progressive, most violent, the worst of the worst on the left. And stir them up, get out into the streets, cause trouble. It's coming. It's what's coming.

Now, you have a choice. You either stand on your principles or you continue to make the same mistake that we always make. I've made it my whole life, too. And you say, well, but I want to win, I want to make sure. Not to win win, but we've got to compromise, we've got to... yeah, you do, but at some point you have to say enough. Enough is enough. And I we're running out of time, gang.

STU: I really think that that's an argument to not advocate for running Scott Brown in every state, where the Republicans could run Scott Brown everywhere and probably win 80 Senate seats and what good would that do? But when you're talking about look at Utah. You take Bennett and you replace him with Mike Lee, and everyone acknowledges that's a move, I don't know, two steps to the right. In, you know, in Delaware a move two steps to the right might be Biden to Castle. We're saying do we want two steps to the right or no steps to the right in Delaware. Because like, again, under the scenario like when she loses

GLENN: I want people like Trent Lott to be shut down in the Republican Party. Trent Lott said, and if I may quote, these tea party people, they're a danger to us and we've got to shut them down. If they come in, we've got to coopt them. They need to be this, to me, this election is not about the Democrats as much as it is about the Republicans. Those people like Trent Lott and all these people that have, they think, a lock on power, because they can convince you that, well, you're going to have to come the minute you compromise they go, see, they'll do it every time. They have to have us. They'll accept us because they need us.

STU: It's a good point.

PAT: It's a great point.

STU: My mind is not made up on that. And I think that, like, to me there's a difference because a vote is a personal choice. To me there's no question who you vote for.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: There's that sort of, who you kind of, the back of your mind kind of root for, it might be different in this scenario.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. No, you know what

STU: It's kind of evil maybe, but

GLENN: Oh, no. You know what? When you do

PAT: You are just flat out wrong on this, Stu. What, are you communist or something? You are just completely wrong on this.

STU: Thanks, Pat.

GLENN: You make a great point on this, and the point is there are times that you do things that you're like, oh, crap, I don't want to do this. And you're hoping, you're hoping that it doesn't happen that way. You know what I mean?

STU: Right.

GLENN: You do it and you're like, okay. But you're hoping that it doesn't lead to something you know, for instance, in my church you have to, you know, everybody serves. I mean, I could become see how frightening this could be. I could become the bishop in my church. It's all voluntary. It's lay clergy. So you don't volunteer. If you want the job, you usually don't get the job. And everybody just does something else. Well, I go to church and I know that's a possibility and I keep going to church and I'm really hoping no, let me rephrase this because you don't want it, you usually get it. I really want the job of bishop.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: You see what I mean?

STU: Right.

GLENN: But it doesn't there's a lot of things in life that you do that you're like, oh, crap. And you root

STU: Right.

GLENN: for the other thing to happen.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: But you still stand there. And that's where we need to be. You still stand where you need to be.

STU: Yeah, I think personally and I've always felt this with a vote. You always should vote for the person you think would be the best person to win.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: You should never vote for who you think should win or who you think might win, you know, in terms of political thing.

GLENN: You compromise.

STU: But I think when you're looking at it as an overall perspective

GLENN: This is why he said, George Washington said that parties would be the death of us. Because they would collude, they would become corrupt, et cetera, et cetera, and then we would play this game. Instead of parties, vote for the individual. Vote for the person. And look, I haven't done this before. I haven't done this before. But we have to. Because of the people like Trent Lott that say, these tea party people, we'll just coopt them. And they will. And they will.

STU: I'm just glad you brought some sense to this unlike Pat who's been ridiculous the entire time.

PAT: I don't even know where you're coming from today.

STU: You're way off your base today, Pat.

PAT: Over to the dark side or with the Communist Party.

GLENN: I think you both are

STU: I'm with Glenn. I stand with Glenn. I don't know where you are.

GLENN: I think you are both clowns and you need to have your mic turned off.

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."
