No Respect?

GLENN: I'm here now with a gentleman that John McCain said, and I want to quote him exactly. He wasn't really one of the most respected senators when he was in the Senate.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Thank you, thank you.


 


 GLENN: Rick Santorum, how are you?


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Thank you, I'm doing great.


 


 GLENN: I would take that as a compliment. If John McCain, if John McCain didn't like you, that's a badge of honor.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Well, I don't know if I would say John McCain didn't like me but obviously he didn't respect me.


 


 GLENN: You don't care. You can like me, just don't respect me. Are you that cheap?


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: I don't think we need to get personal, do we, Glenn? I mean, you know, this is no reason to do that. It's just a matter of respect.


 


 GLENN: I think I would rather have the respect than like.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Yeah. Me, too. I know, I didn't know how you don't get respected and get elected by your colleagues three times as the third ranking member of the Republican Senate.


 


 GLENN: Let me tell you something, Rick --


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Didn't respect me, -- doesn't mean they didn't like me.


 


 GLENN: Rick, let me tell you something. You were the third in the Senate, I'm the third most listened to. Anyone can be number three.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: You know what, I never really thought of it that way. Thank you.


 


 GLENN: Yeah. This isn't good for your self-esteem today, is it?


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: This is really the message to hear. I appreciate it. I'll talk to you later, Glenn.


 


 GLENN: You are like me. This week I wanted to pull my car into the garage, bring the door down, unroll the windows and just listen to some music. You know what I'm saying? Holy cow.


 


 Okay, let's start with what happened yesterday at CPAC.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: I think I have not talked to Governor Romney, we've had a couple of misses. All I can say is the California situation, I think this was really a blow to him and, you know, we were coming out of there with virtually no delegates, put McCain in a position there. We were talking before super Tuesday that, you know, McCain was at 600, 700 delegates, he still was, you know, just a little bit better than halfway there and there was still a chance to get this thing to a convention by picking up a little moment up after Super Tuesday when he had really just a huge sweep of delegates in California, was over 800 delegates, 2/3 of the way there, still half the delegates to pick but when you're 2/3 of the way there and you are 500 or 600 votes ahead of the other guy, it just wasn't happen. So I think Governor Romney did what I think he said. He was going to fight where there wasn't really a chance for him to win anymore. And, you know, look. He did. He fought very hard. He sacrificed a lot, including a lot of his own money and he gave it a good fight and it just wasn't there.


 


 GLENN: You know, I talked to Governor Romney, you know, in one of our secret meetings in the basements of our churches where we were making lime Jell-O with, you know, carrot shreds in them and I said to him, you know, uphill battle, and this was right before Florida. And he said, if I don't make Florida, I just don't know how we're going to be able to make it, I just don't think that it's going to happen. So I think he put on a brave face for Super Tuesday because the polls showed California. But when California was done, he was done.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Yeah, I don't see -- I mean, I talked to him. I was on the plane with him on Sunday and Monday traveling with him to Missouri and Tennessee and Georgia and they were hitting all these polls saying he was ahead in California. I'm just scratching my head and saying, I don't see -- I mean, I'm not in California enough to know. There's some conservatives out there but there are a heck of a lot more moderates and liberals in the Republican party in Californian there are conservatives and I don't see how Mitt Romney, you know, pulls it off and I think it wasn't there but he -- I mean, he fought to the end.


 


 GLENN: I think there was enough. Where he -- you know, I think the problem was, and I think where he could have connected in California is on the economy and I just don't think he hit that early enough and he didn't -- he just didn't connect strongly enough with "I'm the guy to turn the country around and here's what's coming."


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: Yeah, I think you are absolutely right. I mean, he's, you know, really the guru of venture capital world out there. This is a guy who, you know, really understands what makes companies tick, how do you create jobs. I mean, how do you turn companies around, how do you -- the guy's brilliant.


 


 GLENN: Yeah.


 


 SENATOR SANTORUM: And he had a great economic plan and, you know, he looks the part of someone who knows what he's -- is in charge. And I don't know. I think almost the issue sort of came up late. I mean, you know the last couple of months is when the economy started to turn and I'm not sure they adjusted their message. I think they still tried to appeal sort of the rock conservative base, that was the campaign that he was focused on and I think he could have broadened his base had he really focused more on the economic message but, you know, maybe next time.

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."
