What the candidates should say

GLENN: Let me tell you a story about a guy with down's syndrome, works at a grocery store. He's a bagger, decided he wanted to be the best bagger. He decided he wanted to leave people with a little something. So he and his dad every night would type out on his computer. He would find a phrase, little thought of the day that was happen and his dad would type it out for him and print a bunch of them. Then he would cut them out and every day with your bag of groceries he would put that happy thought of the day in there. Well, before you knew it everybody was standing in his line. One of the cashiers would say, I can help you over here. And they would say, no, I want to be in his line. Be the best at whatever it is that you're doing. Be the best. Enjoy the free education. You don't use the free education. You get now and we want -- we want to give people more? Make them work for it. Don't have other people pay for your stupidity. You spill hot coffee on your lap? Well, then you're just too dumb to drink hot coffee now, aren't you? You got yourself into an interest-only loan? Unless the bank did something and lied to you, you're too stupid to have a house. You live in a hurricane zone? Get insurance or don't buy the house. I ain't paying for it every time your house is blown down. You live in a hurricane zone. There's a reason that no one will insure you there. Why should I? If a capitalist society won't insure your house, if a company says I can't make money insuring that house because I'm guaranteed to lose money, because this house is guaranteed to blow down, why should I, somebody who lives in another part of the country, somebody who says I'm not that dumb; I'm not going to build my house on the side of a hill in California; I'm just not that stupid.


Hate U Original Logo Tee

You can't actually attend Hate University (we'd never accept someone like you) but you can still buy our stuff. Our "Hate U" classic logo tee lets the world know that you love to hate—and you're not ashamed to admit it!

Why should I pay for it? Since when, since when did we have to carry lazy and stupid people around? The lazy and stupid people are killing us. Let them be lazy. Let them be stupid. For those who cannot help themselves, we will help. For those who will not help themselves, I got no time for you, jack. I told my wife last night, I got four kids. I don't know about you. I don't know how many kids you have. You might have one, you might have 19. One is one, two is 20. Four, they surround you! There's no escaping. It's like cowboys and Indians. All of a sudden you're surrounded. And every single one of them has a different issue that they're dealing with that I had no idea how to fix.

Can I tell you something? The world's problems are a lot easier for me than teenagers. I can tell you the things that we should be doing as a country. I can tell you the things that we should be doing as consumers, as an economy. I can't tell you who to vote for and I can't tell you how to parent. I have no idea. Talking to my wife last night, I said every day this weekend it has been a crisis with one of the kids and something that is ripped me apart inside, I don't know how to help. I've been reading so much, trying to figure out how to be a better parent and I'll bet you you are the same way. You are struggling to keep your head above water. I'm blessed enough to be able to have the financial resources where I'm not worried about that as well but most are. So you've got your own kids to worry about. You are fighting to keep your own kids' heads above water. You are trying to desperately to get your kids to value a dollar, to value hard work, to value this country. You are laying awake at night thinking about it, worrying about it, worrying about what their life is going to be like, and the Government wants me to take on other people who have no intention of working, who have dropped out of high school because they just weren't interested? I'm paying for your healthcare? I'm paying for your unemployment, I'm paying for your food stamps? I don't think so. I'm sorry. I got no time for you.

Now, where is the candidate that will say that? Where is the candidate that will speak to the hard working American people? And I don't mean this bull crap that comes out of the mouth of Mr. "I've got 17 acres all clear cut but I care about the environment" John Edwards. Where is the person that will speak in my grandfather's voice? Where was the person that used to be a Democrat that said I believe in country, I believe in God, and I believe in hard work? I don't believe in handouts. I believe in hand-ups and it makes me a better person as an individual to help somebody up myself. I'm not gonna call somebody in Washington. Where is that candidate? Because I believe that's the candidate that America is looking for and unfortunately I believe that's the candidate that just is not on the roster, at least for the next four years.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
