Glenn's voting guide

Insider Extreme is the ONLY place Glenn will be on Election Night! Complete details...

GLENN: We are a week and one day away from what should be a historic election. And I say what should be because I'm actually concerned.

I had dinner with some friends over the weekend, and two people told me they're not sure if they're going to vote. They're not sure if they're going to vote. And

PAT: What is this, like 1991 or something? Is it

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: 1981? How can you not be sure you're going to vote?

GLENN: You ready for this? My wife actually said, well, honey, I don't even know. How do you even trust these people? How do you trust these people? I mean, I sat at the dinner table and I looked around and I said, is this a joke on me? Seriously is this a "joke on Glenn" night? How do you mean you don't know who to I don't know how you trust people, either. I really look, I'm in Connecticut. I know one thing: Do not vote for Dick Blumenthal. That's the one thing I do know. I know who this guy is. This guy is a guy who will just I mean, he's the chief law enforcement officer and he'll just, he'll just disregard the law. He'll just do whatever's popular. Don't vote for that guy. Linda McMahon? What do I know about her?

PAT: She's not Dick Blumenthal.

GLENN: That's exactly right. She's not Dick Blumenthal. Can I trust her? I don't know. Can I trust Dick? No. No, I can't. No, I can't.

PAT: Yeah. It's a in that race that's where we I'm not sure we got the best candidate in the primary, but you know what? I know she's better than Dick Blumenthal.

GLENN: Let's try in California. You've got Jerry Brown.

PAT: Enough said.

GLENN: Jerry Brown. Now, what's her, what's her face, Meg Whitman, she seems like a delightful person, but do you trust her? Is she, is she another Arnold Schwarzenegger? Could be. Could be. Is that good? Nope. But she's not Jerry Brown. I mean, what part of this don't we understand? Now, look, you may be lucky enough that in your area there may be a Tea Party candidate. There may be somebody and, you know, you may look at them and say, I don't know; they're not very smart or they're not very polished or they're not whatever. You need to send people into Washington that have tasers on them. Because the people in Washington look, we've already lost the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party is over. It's over. It is the Progressive Party. It is the party of the uber left. It is the Democratic Socialists of America. That's what it is. You can deny it all you want but I mean, you know, it's only your it's only your loss. I mean, just, you're just denying reality. And what happened? You had the progressives in there that were still undercover, who were still just like, oh, you know, we're just like you. And I remember Michael Moore sitting in the presidential box. It was during the John Kerry election. And I said, Democrats, what are you doing? You think you are using them as fuel. You're wrong. They're using you, and they will seize control of your party. And that's exactly what happened. Well, now the same thing, the battle for the soul of the Republican Party is there. You've got people like Lindsey Graham and John McCain who are exactly what the progressives on the right say the Tea Party is: "Oh, the Tea Party, they're just they just want big government control. They're Nazis!" Okay, all right. Nobody is a Nazi at this point. Well, Nazis are Nazis, but nobody else is a Nazi. Progressives have all of the seeds of Nazis, or Mao, or... Fidel Castro or, uh, Lenin, Stalin. All of the seeds are there. That doesn't mean that they're going to grow into that. It means the seeds are there. The big government "Control everybody, my way or the highway" seeds. It's exactly what our founders tried to stay against stay away from. Give the power to the local government. Give the power to the people and they will make sure. Because they won't have enough power to cobble together some gigantic king sort of situation. The king was just as bad as any of these progressives that want to make all the decisions in Washington and damn the people. "I know better. I'm the king." It's the same thing.

So the progressives that are in the Republican Party are now saying when these Tea Party people come, when these new people come, we have to coopt them. You need to get people that have a soul, recognize that they can lose it, that they understand what the stakes are and that we have a chance of standing. There's I mean, body after body after body is going to be piled up in Washington on the steps of the capitol. I mean, they're just going to, they are going to take these guys by the way, for the Tides Foundation, I don't mean literal bodies they're going to take these guys and they're just going to grab them by the throat. And for the Tides Foundation, I don't mean literally grab them by the throat suck their soul out of them and for the Tides Foundation, I don't mean suck their soul out of them literally and then cast them aside.

STU: Glenn Beck advocates sucking the soul out of people! We heard the, hmmm? We heard it! We heard alert! Boycott! Help!

GLENN: That boycott is so effective, isn't it? It's really working well for you guys, it really is. It really is. They're just going to crush these people. So you must vote, you must get out and vote for the people that you think we're going to make mistakes. We're going to send bad people in. But you've got to stand. You've got to stand.

You know what makes revolution feasible to our founders? 25 years of fighting this kind of stuff, going back and forth on the ocean. And people involved, and no way to vote. You've got a release. It's called the voting booth. When they take away your right to vote, then you'll have a case. You've got to vote. When there are 95% of the American people at the voting booth, then you have a case. But as long as there's 40, 50% of the American people that stay at home and don't vote, you don't have a you don't have any case. For violence? You have no case. Zero. We get what we deserve. When 50 or 60% of the U.S. population says, I don't know, I don't really care, whatever, we get what we deserve.

PAT: And we keep hearing about the founders. We've talked about this before. They went back and forth across the Atlantic ocean time after time after time trying to address their grievances with the king, with the crown, and time after time they were rebuffed. That went on for something like 20 years. And they didn't have the vote. They had no say. And they begged and they pleaded and they tried and they I mean, even up until 1775 and 76, they were still trying, and there was a huge portion of the population that were still trying to get along.

GLENN: A long train of abuses.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: That's the line in the Declaration of Independence.

PAT: And it started in the 1750s. So I mean, we're nowhere near that.

GLENN: And you're not even look. Again I bring the French Revolution up. Why? Why are you even talking about revolution? There's no reason to talk about get out and vote! Get your neighbors to vote! I'm sorry to take this out on you. I sat at that table and, Pat, I called you and you said, I know, I've heard it from my friends.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah, I heard it this weekend, too.

GLENN: What, are you crazy?

PAT: Yeah. I mean, I couldn't I looked at them because I heard it two or three times this weekend. And I looked at each one of them and said, what?

GLENN: I thought I was being punked. I thought I was being punked. I really at some point said, is there a camera in the room? Seriously is there a camera in the room because this is you're joking, right?


After getting TROUNCED in Wyoming, Liz Cheney reckons she might run for PRESIDENT

Wyoming Republicans have sent Rep. Liz Cheney — and the Republican Party — a "massive message" by voting her out of Congress, but it now looks like Cheney is trying to turn this into an Abraham Lincoln moment.

After seeming to compare herself to former President Abraham Lincoln, who "was defeated in elections for the Senate and the House before he won the most important election of all" during a speech Tuesday night, Cheney appeared on NBC's "TODAY" show Wednesday and told host Savannah Guthrie that she's "thinking about" a White House run.

Is it possible she didn't get the message?

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere marveled at Cheney's tone-deaf response to Tuesday's devastating defeat, which, surprisingly, was not even the weirdest thing about this election.

"I think a humiliating and devastating loss puts you right where you need to be to launch a presidential campaign. Don't you think?" Glenn asked.

"Let me ask Beto O'Rourke. Hold on one second. I'll get him on the phone," Stu joked. "I mean, really, what is the constituency for a Liz Cheney presidency? She basically runs the state of Wyoming, and her family runs the state of Wyoming, and she got 29% of the vote there. So what is the constituency, other than the possibility of running as an independent candidate to shave votes from Donald Trump?"

"She's going to be brave and she's going to take that stage with Donald Trump ... She's going to be the one that takes him on and she will last all of about 45 seconds," Glenn said. "He will pummel her."

'Bye bye Liz Cheney': Donald Trump Jr. EASILY triggers liberals​​​​​​ with just one silly tweet

Donald Trump Jr. celebrated Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney's humiliating defeat in her state's GOP primary by releasing a 30-second video that was clearly intended to trigger the Trump-hating liberals on Twitter — and, naturally, it worked like a charm.

Rep. Cheney was defeated by Trump-backed challenger Harriet Hageman on Tuesday in the Republican primary for Wyoming's at-large congressional district.

Don Jr. took to Twitter to poke fun at Cheney's loss by posting a video montage of his father, former President Donald Trump, dancing with the caption, "Bye bye @Liz_Cheney. On the bright side at least you won’t have to pretend to be from Wyoming anymore."

Hoo boy, talk about kicking the hornets' nest. The reactions on Twitter were so predictably full of vulgarity, name-calling, and low-brow insults that we can't share most of them here, but you've seen it all before.

Don Jr. has had an interesting couple of days on Twitter. Just yesterday he was actually vindicated by fact-checkers (yes, you read that right) who called BS on a widely circulated but completely fabricated tweet that made it look like he was bashing his father's supporters.

Don Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to weigh in on the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid and explain why he believes the Justice Department targeted his father and pedaled lies to justify it. He also gave his advice on what conservatives can do to peacefully and lawfully stand up against a system that's ignoring their rights.

ATF agent caught taking photos of gun-buyer personal info — insists she's definitely NOT 'creating a registry'

Black Metal Firearms owner David Nagel originally recorded on video an ATF inspector taking pictures of his company’s documents to show what the gun industry is up against in the current political climate, but what he caught on camera has now gone viral.

Nagel joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to reveal exactly what happened the day he captured the shocking video, the threats made by that ATF inspector against his regular customers, and the insults she hurled toward all gun owners.

According to Nagel, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Industry Operations Inspector Pamela Scott began conducting a routine review, but things quickly went sideways when she started taking photos of the shop's detailed sales records — including the identities of every gun buyer.

Nagel said he confronted Scott and even asked if she was "creating a registry," by collecting the personal information of his customers.

"No, that would be illegal," she allegedly answered.

That's when Nagel decided it was time to capture Scott's actions on video.

"We had quite a bit of recording," he told Glenn. "But a lot of it, we were not able to share because there was personal information visible in it, you know, contact numbers and things of that sort. So, we didn't want to put [all of the video] on blast."

The little bit he did "blast" out on Instagram garnered tens of thousands of views and received a wide range of both outrage and support.

Nagel went on to explain how Scott responded when he told her his customers would not be comfortable with her collecting their information.

"She said, 'well, it sounds like your customers are just being paranoid. Maybe I should look into them a little bit more.' Which I thought was really creepy," Nagel said.

"That's a threat," Glenn stated.

"And she said, 'you have a few gun nuts in there.' And I politely corrected her. I prefer gun enthusiasts. And she said, 'no, they're nuts,'" Nagel told Glenn. "That was a kind of backhanded way of describing the average American. Because, if we're all nuts, then what are you governing us for?"

A video has been making the rounds on social media that appears to show Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) telling Fox News host Sean Hannity and Lara Trump that the FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home was “not a raid.”

The video, which has been viewed more than 3.5 million times as of this writing, was captioned "Ron DeSantis went on Hannity and things got SPICY." The (very badly) altered video inserted footage of DeSantis at a 2020 press conference to look like he was correcting Hannity's use of the word "raid" to describe the recent Mar-a-Lago debacle.

“It’s not a raid. With all due respect. It was not a raid. They were serving valid process in accordance with the laws and Constitution of the United States and the state of Florida. They did it with integrity. They did it with honor. And to say it’s a raid is disinformation," DeSantis says in the video, kicking off the alleged "spicy" back and forth.

Both Reuters and AP News have issued fact-checks to debunk the doctored video, because apparently people on Twitter can't decern the extremally, blatantly, painfully obvious alterations for themselves.

Did people really not notice that Hannity is stuck in a weird time loop that makes him appear to be suffering some sort of seizure? Or the way Lara's face is frozen mid-blink? Or how about DeSantis' beyond-even-the-world's-worst-mouth-breather default position when Hannity is speaking? And if none of that clued folks in, surely the crazy chyron would do the trick, right?

Maybe not.

DeSantis' then-press secretary Christina Pushaw (who just resigned from her job as press secretary to work as the rapid response director for the governor's re-election campaign) had to step in to set the record straight.

Gov. DeSantis joined Glenn Beck on the most recent "Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about the unrelenting leftist and media attacks accusing him of tyranny, and scaremongering about how he'll "kill" our "democracy."

DeSantis is unafraid to call out their lies and keep Florida on the front lines for freedom. When Disney tried to protest his Parental Rights in Education law, he stood his ground — and won. He did the same with CRT and woke prosecutors.

Now gearing up to take on ESG.

In the video clip below, he details what his state has already done, what the legislature is preparing to do, and why he's calling on other states to join in his anti-ESG battle: "If we pooled our voting rights together, we would be able to counteract what California and New York and a lot of these other pension plans are doing."
