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.

 

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
