Glenn Beck: Democrats having trouble 'explaining' accomplishments

8.28.10: The Documentary

This is our first full-length documentary and it’s going to blow you away. It’s an exclusive inside look at the making of the 8-28 Rally. When we say exclusive, we mean it. From the time Glenn arrived in Washington DC to the time he took the stage our cameras were rolling. You will not believe what went on behind the scenes. Learn more...

GLENN: I like the fact that Joe Biden says that Democrats are not running on the administration accomplishments because, quote, it's just too hard to explain.

STU: (Laughing). Yes, it is.

PAT: Yeah. It's hard to explain how they're destroying the country and going socialist and still yet we're not. It's good, it's really

GLENN: It's too hard to explain.

PAT: See, you people are just so ignorant, you can't understand it.

GLENN: You know what? That's what it is.

PAT: That's what it is.

GLENN: That's what it is. I don't think you are that stupid. Yeah. Maybe but maybe it's just me, hmmm?

STU: Any idiot could see how raising taxes in a recession is going to help the economy, Glenn.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Unless you're a moron. I mean, it's just unbelievable. People are too stupid.

PAT: Anybody can also see that when you take over 1/6 of the U.S. economy, right, you take over two American auto companies, you take over part of the banking industry and all of home mortgages virtually plus all student loans, anybody could see how that's not socialism.

STU: I know. Why can't people understand that?

PAT: It's not socialism.

GLENN: I don't.

STU: Hard to explain it.

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: What, are you stupid? How can you call that?

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: Socialism.

GLENN: Did Barack Obama say that we were going to do these shovel ready projects? We got a lot of shovel ready projects?

STU: Oh, yeah, definitely.

PAT: Over and over and over again.

STU: Big push for the stimulus, yeah.

GLENN: He's coming out now and this is going to be another one of those that's going to be hard to explain and now they are not going to. He's coming out today and saying that there is no such thing as a shovel ready project.

PAT: We've got to find the audio on that shovel ready project. Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: I find that interesting. And then we have the Chris Matthews audio of the candidate in Ohio that was dressed as a Nazi. He's and I just want to be clear here. I don't understand people that do the dress up thing, you know, and go

PAT: Well, it's somewhat nerdy, but it's like, you know

GLENN: It's less nerdy than dressing up like, you know, a stormtrooper, you know, from Star Wars.

PAT: Yes, it is, I'd say so. Or maybe it's less nerdy than the Renaissance festival thing. I'm not sure.

GLENN: But it is in the same category as the Renaissance festival.

PAT: It is. It's in that realm.

GLENN: It's like, I am your lord now and I'm going to eat a giant turkey leg in front of you. I don't under almost like whenever you go to you know I've gone to fairs or whatever and you have the turkey leg. It's almost, I feel like I'm on the border of a Renaissance fair, you know? The next thing you need is just either a big cape and big jeweled rings on all of your fingers, "Speak like this, peasant," and so I don't understand it. But I think you're in the same category if you're dressing up or the battles and the reenactments, although I can at least understand that a little bit more than the Renaissance fair.

STU: Well, you could understand it because you did it. I mean, you can understand it because as a child you were dressing up in royal garb.

GLENN: I was abused as a child. I was abused as a child.

STU: There are photos of you in colonial garb, sir.

GLENN: That is evidence for the court on my abuse.

PAT: And not admissible in this case. It's a totally different case. It's got nothing to do with this one.

GLENN: All right. But we only have a couple of seconds. So when we come back, I want to play the audio because I don't understand this is you're going to go, hello, like you expected to. I don't understand Chris Matthews and his point on this. It's very odd. We'll play it next.


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."
