Glenn Beck Election Update: GOP lead & CBS manufacturing stories



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

GLENN: We go now to Steve Burguiere in our Election Central which tomorrow night we're going to be able to show you Election Central in all of its glory tomorrow on Insider Extreme, a special live broadcast with me as your anchor, which usually means your ship ain't going anywhere. Me and your anchor and the whole team will be here tomorrow. We'll have Brian Sack out at different polling locations. Stu will be in the Election Center and he's following some of the polls today. And I want to take a look at the GOP, the Democrats and state races for governors.

STU: Yeah, very interesting. First of all, Arizona as you know, they passed a completely unconstitutional evil, hate mongering SB 1070 which made it one of these things where you're supposed to be legally in the country to be legally in the country. I mean, it's completely absurd.

GLENN: I know, I know. It's crazy.

STU: But Jan Brewer who, of course, is the head of that is having a tough time with her reelection, now only up by 11 points. Such an unpopular bill and that's really hurt her in Arizona.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

STU: In Ohio one of the closest races in America

GLENN: I can't believe this.

STU: Yeah, this is surprising. John Kasich who we've had on this program before.

GLENN: I like him. What is the Ohio, what the hell is wrong with you? Is there something I'm missing with John that I I mean, I don't pay attention to these races. I'm working on other things, but I mean, John seems like a decent guy.

STU: Yeah. And he's facing Strickland, the current governor of the state and is leading 48 46 on the average is the last poll from Fox News.

GLENN: Strickland is.

STU: No. Kasich is.

GLENN: Kasich.

STU: Fox's latest poll came out 48 44 in favor of Kasich. It's a very tight race, though, and that's one of the most important states in the poll.

GLENN: It's going to take the governors to be able to stand.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: It really will. This is going to come down to the governors, being able to have enough of them to cobble together a coalition of states to say enough is enough.

STU: In Florida another really, really close race. Right now Scott has a 44.8% to 44.6% lead over Alex Sink and Alex Sink is trying to be I believe the first Democratic or Republican governor ever to actually get caught cheating in a debate, then lie about it, then fire someone to cover it and still get elected as governor. That will be a trick if she can pull that one off. And that one's very, very tight.

GLENN: That's unbelievable.

STU: And finally in Colorado which is a race that keeps getting tighter and tighter by the day, latest Fox News poll has John Hickenlooper leading Tom Tancredo 47 44.

GLENN: Wait, wait.

STU: He's tightened this thing to three points, which is amazing.

PAT: It's gone from 30 he was down, by 15, to 5, now it's 3?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: What was it last Friday or last Thursday? Do you remember?

STU: I believe it was 5?

PAT: 5.

STU: Last time we talked about it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So it's now what?

PAT: 3.

STU: 3. And the Republican candidate is still on the ballot and has 6% of the vote. So

PAT: If the election were held December 2nd, he would win by 98%.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Thank you, Al Gore, for stopping by with the hockey stick.

PAT: Certainly.

GLENN: Look, here's the thing. You have got to get out and vote. You've got to get out and vote. They are doing everything they can to suppress the vote. And I mean this really in some ways, in some elections, with both parties. You know, I said last hour, they didn't want the Tea Party. They said the worst thing the Tea Party can do is have a third party. Well, look who's created a third party. The Democrats in Florida and the Republicans in Alaska.

STU: Republicans in Florida? Remember Charlie Crist is a Republican governor.

GLENN: Yeah, I know, but he that's like Arlen Specter. That's calling Charlie Crist a Republican. He never was.

STU: Well, Charlie Crist was saying himself I mean, the guy was running as a, somewhat

GLENN: Yes, but he's paying for his campaign now? It's the Democrats.

STU: And he's saying now after all of this, after running in the Republican primary that he's going to caucus with the Democrats if elected. Hear that, Florida.

GLENN: Yeah. So here he is running as a third party candidate and he's being bank rolled by the Democrats. And the same thing happened with the Republicans in Alaska. They're the ones creating a third party. And they are doing it because they're so desperate to hold on now, these are the progressives in both parties that are doing everything they can to hold onto power. And that power is slipping away, guys. It's slipping away. Did you see what CBS did in Alaska? The CBS do we have the audio of the CBS?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Play this audio and read the transcript, if you will. Because it's hard to understand on radio.

PAT: It is and I don't have the transcript. Do you have the

GLENN: Transcript of it?

PAT: Yeah. I don't.

GLENN; basically what they are doing is they are meeting and they call, what's his name?

STU: Joe Miller?

GLENN: Joe Miller.

PAT: They are talking about Joe Miller, yeah.

GLENN: Right. They call his office, the cellphone doesn't hang up and it's on the answering machine and so Joe Miller releases this audio and they're talking they hang up the phone and they're talking and basically they are saying, get a list of everybody that works for him, get a list of everybody around on this rally, let's find the child molester. We can even tweet that the child molester is, you know, for Joe Miller. I mean, it's awful, awful stuff.

STU: Unreal.

PAT: This is the sound.

(Audio plays)

GLENN: Get a list of his workers and his campaign workers.

STU: All right. I have the transcript here now. So it starts off with child molesters, one person says. Then he says, oh, yes, get a list of people campaign workers, which one's the molester.

(Audio playing)

STU: Okay. Then you got, you know that list of all the people that will show up tonight. At least one of them will be a registered sex offender.

(Audio playing)

STU: Okay. So you've got the male first says we need to find that one person. Then the female says, the one thing we can do is we won't know, we won't know but if there is any sort of chaos whatsoever, we can pull out a Twitter, Facebook alert saying, hey, Joe Miller punched at a rally.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: Listen.

PAT: That is amazing.

STU: Kind of like Rand Paul. I like that one, yeah.

GLENN: Okay. So here's the amazing thing. They're actually being defended by this CBS News station. Can you pull up the ratings, if you can see the ratings in Alaska on this CBS News station? If it is not Number 4 now in the ratings, it will be. It could be Number 1. This CBS News station has just doomed themselves to last place if they're not already in last place. They're done. They're done. The American people are not like this. They are not they are fair. They are not like this. They do not want their news on the left or the right doing these kinds of things. This is they're defending this now. The station is saying, they were just looking at all the possibilities on what they would do, what if they found a child molester. What if they found a child molester? What if they found a name the last time we had a child molester found at a campaign, on the campaign staff? I mean, what kind of what if? What if aliens land in the middle... you deal with it. If that's what happens, you don't sit there and war game all of the possibilities. It's ridiculous.

STU: Well, and they forgot to say "What if" as well.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: They did potentially leave that out.

GLENN: Let's look at all of the people that were there. There's got to be one that's a child molester, one that is a

STU: Right.

GLENN: They are looking for these things.

STU: Yeah. It's a retroactive qualifier. I mean, and they didn't say that at the time. They are now saying that afterwards to make it look better. But the bottom line is they were searching for a way to take this guy down.

GLENN: But here's the story that this CBS News affiliate stands by these people. They should be fed to the moose, or the Mees or the...

STU: I don't think it's Mees, I'm pretty sure.

GLENN: The moos. Yes. These people should be out of a job today. CBS News which will never happen should drop this station as an affiliate. What? Are you kidding me?

STU: Especially if they won't do something about it. It's one thing for it to happen.

GLENN: Right. If it hurts CBS News, because I'm talking about it as a CBS station, which goes right into play that CBS has made up news for the last, what, how many years?

STU: Continued this weekend.

GLENN: And it continues this weekend and they don't care. If Alaskans accept this in their local news, I mean, that is incredible. Just incredible. It would be wrong if they were doing it to the Democrat. It doesn't matter. This is why we don't believe the media anymore. And it's not just I mean, NBC is doing the same stuff. NBC is doing the same stuff. You'll notice that you don't have any tapes of me saying things like this. You'll notice that you don't have and let me tell you something. If you, if you really I mean, for as much heat and as much money as they are spending on taking me down, you'll notice they don't concentrate on things in context. You'll notice they don't, they don't try to go and say that I'm wrong on all these things. And they don't certainly when I'm making a prediction on something, they'll say that's ridiculous or whatever. But once it comes true, they never go, oh, now, wait a minute. And beyond that, I'm not a news show. I am a guy who gives you my opinion. I am a guy who has said I will bet you that we will find audio of Van Jones; go look for it. But I'm a guy who's giving you my opinion and I'm trying to piece something together. What are they piecing together? They didn't say that the NBC News up there. They are saying contingency. They are not saying they are piecing together a theory that Joe Miller has surrounded himself with pedophiles. You could make that case. You could say he has surrounded himself with pedophiles; go find the child molesters that are on his staff.

STU: Well, you couldn't make that case because there's no evidence of it.

GLENN: But they could say, we have evidence that leads us to believe... and that's what we're doing, we're following a story. That's not what they're doing. That's what I do. That's what I did with Van Jones. That's what I've done with all the socialists, Maoists, Marxists, anticapitalists in the administration. You can find tape of me saying, find it, because I know it exists. Find it. I say it on the air.

STU: Yeah, you'd need Joe Miller on record talking about his proclivity for backing child molester.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Quite a few times before you even go down that road.

GLENN: Yes. And they are not. And they are not. This CBS affiliate in Alaska, the only right thing to do with these people is to purge them from your newsroom. I don't call for firings. I don't do it. I don't call for boycotts. I didn't want Van Jones fired. I wanted an explanation. You've already given the explanation. And because of that, CBS News, not because of a boycott but because people are better than this. You don't respect your viewers. They will not watch you. If you're not the last place newscast already, which I suspect you probably are, if you're not the last place newscast already, you will be. Oh say it like Yoda.

PAT: You will be. Yes.

STU: That's pretty good.

GLENN: Thank you.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
