GLENN: I want to go right to Joe Biden. Joe Biden says that moderates need not apply to the GOP.

CALLER: But the truth is that it's real tough for the Republican Party and really they kind of hung out a shingle, you know, no moderates need apply. It's and it's sort of spawns a, I don't know, a tone in politics that is not helpful.

PAT: Okay. What he was saying there, I guess is our level low? Apparently moderates need not apply to the Republican Party.

STU: Yeah. Because as you see in this over the past, say, 18 months has been devastating for the Republicans.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

STU: You know, from where they were in 2008

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Hang on just a second. There's a new poll out that shows that Democrats have, I don't even know, a hate rating of, like, 70% and the Republicans have a hate rating of, like, 81%.

STU: Well, the Republicans have the largest lead in the generic ballot they've ever had in all recorded history.

GLENN: No, I understand that. I understand that. What it is is a very, it's a very subtle difference.

STU: Right. They are not in love with Republicans.

GLENN: Right.

STU: Because they haven't proven they can do anything.

GLENN: Right.

STU: But the bottom line is the idea that you are fighting on principle always strengthens your party. It makes you not a non, sort of undefined animal and that's important.

GLENN: It again goes back to what they caller said a little while ago. He was watching the debate between O'Donnell and Coons and they were having the debate last night and he said, this isn't about ideology. It is. It is about the Constitution and whether or not the American experiment as dreamed up by our founders is going to continue or not. It is about ideology. I believe the worst thing that we can do is to continue to spend. Your ideology teaches continue to spend more to get us out of this. The days of that being able to be true are over, long ago. They were over under George W. Bush.

STU: And that's why they want to talk about mice brains. That's why they want to talk about Christine O'Donnell in 1996 on MTV because they don't want to have that debate.

GLENN: They don't they say this isn't about ideology, but it is. It is Constitution versus Karl Marx.

PAT: This is from the party. This is from the guy whose party is in complete disarray from the American people. They are so separate from the American people, and they understand that. And so all of this is just a diversion. But they've seen the polls just like we have, that 56% of the American people think they are the ones who are extreme and only, like, 30% or something think the Republicans are extreme. We've seen poll after poll.

STU: Yeah. And I love the idea that he's sitting here feeling bad because the Republicans keep putting up these terrible candidates. If you look at this in reality, it took the Republicans basically twelve years to screw it up enough for everyone to not trust them. From 1994 to 2006. It's taking the Democrats four years. They were literally, after 2008, everyone was writing off the Republicans as a regional party. Do we not remember this?

PAT: Done for 50 years.

STU: Done for 50 years. We are the next election two years later and almost everyone is saying a massive move to the right, and is it going to be enough to be a huge move in the Senate to take it over is the question mark. I mean, that's really the line we're talking about: Will it be enough for the Senate, will it be enough for the House. We'll have a huge move in the House and it will be overwhelming there and yet Biden's very, very concerned for the future of the Republican Party. So idiotic.

PAT: They have to do this is another great sign. Instead of getting mad about this, we should be happy for this because

GLENN: You know what?

STU: Something to celebrate, absolutely.

GLENN: A, I could care less about anything that anybody says about the GOP. I couldn't care less. I couldn't. Could you? Could you care less?

PAT: Only in that that's the party where the conservatives come from.

STU: Yeah. I mean

PAT: That's the only reason I care about the Republican Party. If there are conservatives who share my values

GLENN: (Inaudible).

PAT: I know. Well, that's the problem with the Republican Party. But when there's a conservative in the race, they're always Republican.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Or, you know, libertarian. But they've got no juice. So

STU: But I mean, the Republican Party

GLENN: I think they are about to.

STU: The Republican Party is what the people inside of it define it as. And the bottom line is if you start having a lot more Jim DeMints, the Republican Party isn't going to be a bad thing to us. It's going to be something that's great.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: Because you have some people standing there who are

GLENN: Yes and no.

STU: Well

GLENN: The Republican Party here, look. You know, Pat just brought up libertarians. I don't want the traditional Republican Party. I guess Ronald Reagan was the closest to what I would want from that. And that is a reduction in power. I don't want I mean, I'm a religious guy, but I don't want a group you know what really happened to the Christian Coalition? The Christian Coalition became about politics, and it really started to center in on Washington. That, that's the worst thing that could happen. The worst thing that could happen. We don't want big government to do anything for special interests. We want the special interests, you know, if you will, to dismantle government so they can go on and do their own thing themselves in their own community and in their own circle of influence. Not to have the government. And if the Republicans become a which it could very easily become. I mean, this is why you have to be very careful of progressivism. Because if it is misunderstood and it is so easily misunderstood and somebody rises to the top into the Republican Party and the good news is I don't see any of them. I don't see anybody out there that gets it that is a progressive on the right. I mean, do you think? What is it, Trent Lott, Lindsey Graham, John McCain? None of them are going to do it because none of them have the juice with the American people. There's nobody out there that has the juice with the American people that is a progressive on the left, that could really grab power. But if you could find a progressive I'm sorry, on the right that could grab power and was a Republican, extraordinarily dangerous.

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: And that's why I don't like I just, I'm sick of the parties.

STU: I am sick of them, too. All I care about the ideas, I could care less about the R versus the D. If they you know, if the Democrats started putting people like Jim DeMint in office, I would be voting Democrat.

GLENN: What's the difference between an idea and ideology?

STU: I think they try to make ideology out as this, it's essentially a religion. It's something that you can't question. You're immovable, you never can consider anything outside of it, you're fighting for it blindly, blah, blah blah.

PAT: They're connected. Their ideas spring from your ideology.

GLENN: Right. It's what you believe in. I mean, we can come up with a million ideas if you are a free market person and you're a small government person, I can come up with idea after idea after idea. But I can come up with a whole bunch of ideas and if I'm in a system built by Marxists and giant government, none of my ideas matter.

STU: Right.

GLENN: That's why when the president says, you know, he's lying when he says, I'll sit down and talk to anybody. No, you won't. I mean, unless it's, you know, Ahmadinejad. You won't sit down and talk with me, you won't sit down and talk with Fox News, you won't sit down with the leaders of the tea party and really listen. No. You might sit down and talk to them, not with them. You'll talk to them, but they won't make any progress because you are an ideologue. And so any idea that anyone else comes at you with is immediately rejected.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Well, I got news for ya. I'm an ideologue, too, except my ideology is limited government that doesn't suppress anyone.

STU: Yeah, your ideology is limited government because you trust people.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
