Extreme is the ONLY place Glenn, Stu and Pat will be on Election Night!


Complete details...

STU: Well, Pat, you know, we basically seem to be taking for granted that the

House is going to be in Republican hands after this because what could possibly

go wrong? I can't think of anything. Republicans are always perfectly competent

and everything goes their way.

PAT: Sure.

STU: But the Senate is a little bit of a tougher road, as you know. So I thought

we'd look at what is the road to the Republican Senate? How do they do it?

PAT: How do they do it?

STU: How do they do it?

PAT: How easy is it?

STU: Okay. Well, we have a bunch of races that are heavily favored for

Republicans. South Dakota, Idaho, Oklahoma, Alabama, North Dakota, Kansas, South

Carolina, Utah, Iowa, Arizona, Arkansas, and Georgia, all 20 point leads or

more, okay? Next group you have Indiana, Louisiana, Ohio, North Carolina,

Florida, which as you know has that three person dynamic as well as Alaska. Now,

Miller is favored in Alaska, though his really only challenger there that has a

chance of winning is Murkowski. So that would likely stay in Republican hands

anyway.

PAT: And she's write in.

STU: And she's write in.

PAT: She's not going to win.

STU: That seems really tough. I don't know. How do you win a write in campaign?

PAT: We should look into that but I don't think it's ever been done. Not in a

long time anyway.

STU: Got to be very difficult.

PAT: Yep.

STU: So the polling there is very weird, although Miller still leads by 5

points, Rubio is up by double digits right now and it looks like he will win.

Even if he loses, though, you have Crist who is going to be, god only knows what

he is. I think he changes he changes his opinions approximately every nine

seconds. So if you get him at the right nine second chunk, you've got his vote.

Unfortunately the next nine seconds you're totally screwed.

PAT: He was great at the debate, though, the other night saying that's a good

thing. I'm fluid; I change with the times. He's rigid.

STU: He's rigid. I mean, he has beliefs that he's thought of for a long time and

PAT: He believes in something? I hate that in a candidate.

STU: Oh, he has an opinion that continues to remain consistent. It's oh, I hate

that.

PAT: I don't know about you. I like to vote for worms. I like a worm.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Somebody who's malleable, somebody you can bend to their will or who bends

to the will of whomever they're talking to. That's what I like. Don't you want a

spineless worm in office?

STU: Right. Like, don't you want a candidate that's going to take the yes and no

vote and put them on the red and black parts of the roulette table?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And then just spin the wheel.

PAT: Spin the wheel.

STU: Roll the ball.

PAT: Roll the ball.

STU: And if it's red or black, that's the way he votes.

PAT: There you go.

STU: Is that what you want in a candidate?

PAT: That is.

STU: Because I know he's particularly good at that. He's a roulette professional

and that's what's going to be happening potentially, although it looks like

Rubio's going to hold on there. Then you have the next it starts to get a little

more difficult after these races. You've got Kentucky, Missouri, New Hampshire

and Wisconsin. Rand Paul is up by 6 right now and it looks like he's polling

much better ever since the absolute debacle of the Aqua Buddha ad by Conway who

has actually taken the slimiest profession in the world and made it worse. He's

actually taken what seems to be the ugliest thing you can do in your life: Run

for office and made it even more despicable. And Kentucky has completely turned

on him in the last few polls and Rand Paul, one of the last polls had Rand Paul

up 13 points.

PAT: Wow.

STU: Which was very close before that. And then you have Missouri, New Hampshire

and Wisconsin. Those are all within ten points. Then you get into sort of the

toss up category here, which is Pennsylvania, Pat Toomy's up by 4. Colorado,

buck is up by 2. Nevada, Sharron Angle by 2. We don't know how many gift cards

she has in reserve to give away from union representatives, probably not enough

to overcome Harry Reid's gift card barrage and free food garage, but we'll talk

about that in a little bit. Illinois, Kirk is up by 2. West Virginia is an exact

dead heat right now. They're tied. And Patty Murray in Washington on the

Democrat side is up by 4. Now, all you have to do, if you're the Republicans and

you want to take the Senate back, is win every single race I just mentioned.

With absolutely no exceptions. And you have the Senate.

PAT: It's just that easy.

STU: That is so easy. All you have to do is go 100% on those races.

PAT: It's just that easy.

STU: Now, you could switch out if you want to win against Barbara Boxer, you

could switch one of those out.

PAT: Oh, okay.

STU: But that's pretty much your only one that you have a shot at other than the

ones I mentioned.

PAT: Really?

STU: So all you have to do is do everything and you can take back the Senate as

well as the House.

PAT: So the guy in Washington, because I don't think you mentioned him. He's

down now?

STU: He's down 4.

PAT: Down 4?

STU: Yeah. The New York Times rates it as a 15% chance that he's going to win

that race. And

PAT: 15%?

STU: Yeah, 15%. And but I mean, it's one of these things where you just feel

like one of these races is going to go the wrong way. There's going to be huge

pickups here and there's no doubt about that, but can you win all of those?

PAT: I don't know.

STU: Only in a huge wave.

PAT: Maybe.

STU: Only in a huge wave.

PAT: Maybe. It's possible. We could get one. Could get one.

STU: Just the possibility that that could happen.

PAT: I know.

STU: Is enough for me to have a little smile on my face.

PAT: Yeah, it is.

STU: And the possibility that Harry Reid might not be there anymore gives me

even a bigger smile.

PAT: Well, and people have gone from talking about, oh, conservatively I'd say

35 to 39, maybe you get the 39 necessary to take the house, maybe you get to 52

48 in the Senate. So we've come a long way since then.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Because people are talking about 65 now in the House or, you know, 55.

STU: 50 to 60, yeah.

PAT: And you've got people like Dick Morris who are saying we should shoot for

100.

STU: Seems a little unlikely but it's possible. It's not impossible.

PAT: Seems very unlikely, but then you on the other hand you have Nancy Pelosi

who says they are not going to, they are not even going to lose control of the

House. They are not even going to lose control.

STU: But Nancy Pelosi has to say that. She has absolutely no other option. I

mean, she's like a football coach. She's out there saying, like, you can't come

out if you're, you know, the Buffalo Bills coach and say, look, we're going to

beat Indianapolis, we're going to beat we're going to beat the Giants, we're

going to beat all the good teams. You just can't do it. You have to be what was

it? Louisiana Tech/Boise State last night? If you're Louisiana, you have to say

you're going to win that game. We know how we're going to we're going to go you

have to have all the sports cliches, we're going to work all the way to the end.

PAT: I suppose.

STU: We're not going to take no for an answer.

PAT: But she says part of the problem is they just, they haven't gotten credit

for all the good they've done. They just haven't

STU: It's a big problem.

PELOSI: All those forces at work are pouring millions and millions of dollars

into the media and now into the campaigns to mischaracterize everything that we

did. So that's that. It's up to us to go out there under confident our members,

they know why they voted for what they did, they believe in it.

PAT: Really?

PELOSI: They'll convey that to their constituents. But you're right, we haven't

really gotten the credit for what we have done, but we will take it to the

voters and our Democratic majority to follow through on all of that.

PAT: Okay. You know, they want

STU: Huh.

PAT: They want all the credit, for what I don't know, but they want all the

credit and none of the blame or responsibility. None. They will accept no blame

whatsoever, but they want credit for what lavished on them?

STU: For what?

PAT: For

STU: You, your own estimate said unemployment wouldn't go over 8%.

PAT: Oh, but now, now listen to what she's saying. You know, that was that's

what they said then.

STU: Sure.

PAT: If we don't do this, unemployment could, you know, could hit 9%.

STU: Could hit 9%, uh huh.

PAT: But if we do do it, it won't go above 8.

PELOSI: And I think the results are what people should be looked toward. Fact is

there's 9% unemployment in our country.

PAT: Yes.

PELOSI: And we were in a very deep ditch. If we hadn't taken actions that we did

with the Recovery Act, well, that saved 3.6 million, created or saved 3.6

million jobs.

PAT: Created, okay, created or saved.

STU: I thought we had abandoned the created or saved thing. Wasn't that

PAT: Created or saved 3.6 million jobs.

STU: Why not just go with billion?

PAT: I know, why not.

STU: Saved 3.6 billion jobs.

PAT: It's just as dumb a figure.

STU: It's just as accurate. It's just as you might as well make up a number and

make it quabillion. Save 3.9 quabillion jobs because it means as much as what

you're saying in this speech.

PELOSI: Economists tell us that that plus other actions if we hadn't taken them,

we would have 8 1/2 million more people unemployed.

PAT: Oh.

PELOSI: We would have a 14 1/2% unemployment rate.

PAT: 14 1/2.

PELOSI: And a huge deficit. So we've got to advertise that. We've been busy

legislating

PAT: You do. You do.

PELOSI: working.

PAT: Oh, gosh. Oh, you've been busy.

PELOSI: We have to educate the public as to what the choice is as we go forward.

PAT: And again they haven't educated us. We're stupid. And look, if we'll buy

this hogwash that, had they not taken the actions they do, there would be 8 1/2

million unemployed.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: We are stupid, if we buy that.

STU: That's true. And you have to love her add on there which is if we didn't

take the actions we did plus other actions, well, if it was maybe, I don't know,

closing down 50,000 companies, I don't know what action that they didn't take

that made this happen, but it seems like they are just lumping stuff on top of

each other.

PAT: I don't know how they get away with this. You know, if you took this

action, unemployment wouldn't rise past 8%, now it's, well, if we hadn't have

taken this action, 8 1/2 million more people would be out of work.

STU: These numbers are

PAT: Well, you can't have that. You can't have it both ways. You can't say what

might have been, what could have been. You have no idea.

STU: Right. You had an idea before it happened. We have you on record before it

happened, and you said it wasn't going to go any higher than 8%. You said even

if we didn't pass the stimulus, it wouldn't go any higher than 9%. We have the

graphs. We have your lead economic advisor laying this out, a point by point on

a graph. And look at what they're talking about now. You know, the average

unemployment rate of the entire Bush administration was 5.3%.

PAT: Yeah, yeah. 5.3.

STU: The average projected by Obama, the average unemployment of the Obama

administration, if it lasts two terms, I always let's not even entertain that

possibility, but if it lasts two terms, you're talking about even if all the

stuff goes right, they are talking about an average of 9. It's almost double

what Bush was. Remember what they were saying about Bush. They were saying he

was the worst president since Herbert Hoover.

PAT: Well, he's the one that drove us in the ditch.

STU: He's the one that drove us into the ditch. And they have all their policies

that they say are going to get us back in recovery, can't even get an average of

what they said the worst was going to be if they passed their plans.

PAT: And we'll tell you more about the ditch analogy coming up, too.

STU: Oh, the ditch.

PAT: Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere. Glenn's on his way here on the Glenn Beck

program.

 

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
