GLENN: All right. So we're just looking up what would it take to be the

record for getting people out to vote for the midterm election. We went back to

1960, and what is the record since 1960, record turnout for midterm election?

STU: Be 1966, 48.4% turnout. And that I mean, the 60 up until about 1970, it was

over 40%, in '62, '66 and 1970. And then since then it has not cleared 40%.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

STU: Well, last

GLENN: I've never been over what was it in 199 what was it, 4?

STU: 1994 was 38.8.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Which, that was the big turn.

GLENN: That was the big revolution.

STU: And then in 2006 when it went away from Republican control back to

Democratic control, it was only 37.1%. So that's pretty that's insanely

depressing when you think about it.

PAT: It's almost unconscionable. I'm reading a story right now, remember back in

the first Iraqi election when they were under I mean, it was still, when

everything was just in such turmoil and upheaval and there were bombings every

day, I mean hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of Iraqis were dying every

day from terrorist strikes and there was the whole election was under the pol of

you might be blown up either at or on your way to the election. Remember that?

Correspondents reported from Baghdad a turnout of 95% of Baghdadis and 72%

overall in the country. 72%.

STU: That's an awesome term, Baghdadis?

PAT: Baghdadis.

STU: I want to be a Baghdadi. That's awesome.

PAT: You can't.

STU: I can't be a Baghdadi?

GLENN: You can be a Mac daddy but not a Baghdadi.

STU: A Mac daddy but not a Baghdadi?

GLENN: What was the turnout for the last election?

STU: Last election as of presidential obviously is higher, 56.8%, which was the

highest it had been since 1968? Is that right? Scanning it quickly, it looks

like since 1968, which was and 1964 and 1968 were all over 60%. Again we have

not cleared 60 since, but the last two have been up quite a bit.

GLENN: That's amazing. Look at that. Look at that. And what was happening in

1968? That was Vietnam. That was the Great Society. That was a moment very

similar to this where people said we're going in the wrong direction. We're

going, you know, we're going Marxist. We're going the Great Society. That was a

watershed election and it was still 68%. I mean, that's great. Can you imagine

that? And the midterm was 48%?

STU: Yeah, 1966, 48.4.

GLENN: Guys, I got news for ya. If this doesn't motivate your friends and

neighbors to go out and vote. I mean, I know they are all going to say, well,

there's nobody to vote for, blah, blah blah. If this doesn't get you to go to

the polls and stand there and just say, you know what? I'm going to hold my nose

even, vote for a third party, vote for vote for someone, but show them that we

are not going to be weasels anymore. We're not going to be little mice with,

what was it? With O'Donnell's brain cells in them. We're not going to be we're

not going to be sheep led to the slaughter. We are going to lead. If this

doesn't do it, what will? If this doesn't get you've got the Baghdadis going out

and 92%?

PAT: 95.

GLENN: 95%.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Going out to the polls.

PAT: And 72% overall according to a lot of surveys. BBC said 62. So still bigger

than any American election where we've got nothing to fear except maybe being

bored while standing in line for a while. That's what we fear when we go to the

polls: I don't know how long Iraqis stand there. Will they be serving coffee and

doughnuts in line? I don't know if I can do this. I don't have time. I've got

some shopping to do.

STU: Well, you do, you do have to fear, though, when you're walking in and the

campaign workers are just outside of the premises where they are allowed to be

and then they all assault you with their different campaign pitches?

GLENN: You're right. You're right, it is so

STU: That is irritating.

GLENN: It is irritating. And I mean, so much like when you were going to be

blown up in Baghdad.

STU: Exactly what I'm saying. And you know like last time I went to vote, the

wife of the guy running was standing out in front of the polls and you felt bad.

PAT: She was.

STU: She was saying, oh, vote for my husband, and you felt bad. And it's just

like almost being blown up. It's almost the same thing. I mean, it's basically

the exact equivalent.

GLENN: Paul Nunn, who is our artist on staff and done he is, you know, he's

designed so much of everything that we do. Paul, I want a poster made with a

giant purple finger and just says America: Can't We Do Better.

STU: That's great.

GLENN: Adopt someone or bring a friend to the polls. Make a poster with just a

finger, make it, you know, an iconic looking finger, not a picture but an iconic

looking finger with purple ink on it and underneath: America, Can't We Do

Better. This is obscene. I mean really, honestly if we can't, if we get 35% of

the people at this point, the politicians are right. The ACLU is right. The AFL

CIO. All of these people. The George Soros, all of these people. They're right.

PAT: Well, we deserve what we get, too.

GLENN: We do.

PAT: If only 35% of the people show up, we don't care enough. We just don't care

enough.

GLENN: Well, no, hang on just a second. I wouldn't say that we deserve.

STU: We as a society.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: We as a society would deserve.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Which brings me to my other point. Could we just broker a deal? Seriously

could we just broker a deal? Can't we just take, you know, Texas and I mean,

I'll take Oklahoma, Idaho. You can have one side of the mountains, we'll have

the other side of the mountains. You can have California and everything else.

Just leave us alone. We're going to build a huge wall because you are going to

try to steal everything and you are going to blame it all on us. You'll turn

your people against us when we give you the pick of the states.

PAT: And who are we giving the pick of the states to? Are you talking

progressives?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: So they take Massachusetts, New York.

GLENN: They take the entire Eastern seaboard.

PAT: Okay. And what about the Californians, though? What do we do then?

GLENN: California, they can have California.

PAT: Okay. We just push it into the ocean?

STU: Wait a minute. They are getting wait a minute. They're getting all the

oceanfront property?

PAT: Yeah, let them have it.

STU: What?

PAT: No, we'll still got Texas. We'll have 2200 miles of coastline.

GLENN: Here's what will happen. Within five years this is why we have to have a

wall because they will turn their people against us. We give them all the best

stuff. Within five years they will be blaming it on us and they will be turning

their people against the people behind the walls saying it's their fault, they

did it to us. We'll be so unbelievably prosperous that they won't have any idea

what to do. And so they'll we'll just buy the oceanfront property back. It will

go for a song. Of course, we'll have to buy it back from the Chinese, but

STU: That's a good point.

PAT: Because that's who will be running the country.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: All the progressives.

GLENN: Absolutely.

STU: Do we get Hershey, Pennsylvania? I believe we should have that?

GLENN: No, but I believe we could convince easily Hershey to her part.

STU: Tough to move a town.

GLENN: If you did an Ayn Rand kind of thing where you're like, we're going to

take this part of the country and we're just going to do an experiment on it and

we're going to further the American experiment.

PAT: You choose all of your progressive ideals like

GLENN: We are.

PAT: You say that wealth is one pie, you go ahead and divide it amongst

yourselves, knock yourselves out. We're going to bake pies on this side.

GLENN: Yeah. We're the pie making people. You're the pie taking people.

PAT: See how that works out for you once you run out of pie.

GLENN: And we're going to build a wall because we don't trust you. We're not

going to we're not building any weapons. We'll defend ourselves because you will

turn your population against us. Because you have to have someone to blame.

We're not looking to blame anybody. We're not looking to blame the past, we're

not looking to blame the present, we're not looking to blame the future. We're

just, we're just going to be making things.

PAT: Total fresh start for conservatives and progressives.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: That's great. That's a great idea.

 

Legal scholar and famed criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz has a message for partisans dividing America: "A plague on both your houses." He voted for Hillary Clinton. He endorsed Joe Biden. He's a man who is basically the Forrest Gump of American judicial history.

Look up a big court case over the past few decades, and you'll probably see him standing in the background. He's represented notorious clients like Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Harry Reems, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and yes, Donald Trump. It's made him a target for both the left and right.

Alan also describes himself as a "civil libertarian," and that's probably why he and Glenn Beck get along despite their opposing political views. His story is like a history lesson, spanning half a century, and it just might be the key to bridging the political divide.

On this week's podcast, Alan explained that while he's a strong defender of the Constitution, he's never been a big fan of the Second Amendment. In the past he's called it absurd and outdated, and even today, he admits that he wouldn't have ingrained it into our Constitution if he was a framer. However, with the whole Bill of Rights under attack, he's now fully in defense of our right to bear arms. Because if the Second Amendment changes, any amendment could be next.

"I'm now a supporter of the Second Amendment. I don't want to change it. I don't want to change one word of it, because I'm afraid that if I get to change the Second Amendment, other people will get to change the First Amendment, and the Fifth Amendment," Alan said. "So, I am committed to preserving the Bill of Rights, every single word, every comma, and every space between the words."

Investigative reporter David Steinberg joined the radio program Monday, to explain how a new video may provide enough evidence to begin a FBI investigation into alleged illegal practices by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's campaign.

In the video, which was produced and released by Project Veritas, residents of Omar's community describe campaign teams that not only conduct illegal ballot harvesting practices but also pay people for their blank absentee ballots.

Steinberg told Glenn that, if these charges prove to be true, the federal government could bypass Omar's friend and protector, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Could 2020 be the beginning of the end for Omar's political career?

Mike Fratantuono is the manager of Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland. He wrote in the Washington Post's COVID-19 series about the recent, heartbreaking loss of his business, a restaurant that has been in his family for "four generations and counting."

"I know this virus is real, okay? It's real and it's awful. I'm not disputing any of that," Mike wrote. "But our national hysteria is worse. We allowed the virus to take over our economy, our small businesses, our schools, our social lives, our whole quality of life. We surrendered, and now everything is infected."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck reacted to Mike's letter, which he shared in full, adding his hope that those in government are ultimately held responsible for what he called the biggest theft of the Western world.

"This is the biggest theft of, not only money, but of heritage and of hope," Glenn said. "The United States government and many of the states are responsible for this, not you. And hopefully someday soon, we'll return to some semblance of sanity, and those responsible for this theft, this rape of the Western world, will be held responsible."

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.
