GLENN: 888-727-BECK, 888-727-BECK. Let me go to Scott who is our Couple of the Year contestant. Scott.

SCOTT: Glenn.

GLENN: I'm just looking at your -- you know, we did kind of a Mad Lib thing where I wrote an essay and you just had to fill in the blanks and I'm just looking here and it says right up at the top, says you're having a tough time in your marriage.

SCOTT: Yes. It's not real good right now and she's called me 14 times in the last 20 minutes and I haven't been able to answer because I've been on hold to risk hanging up. So this has got to be something really good here.

GLENN: Why would you -- if your marriage isn't going so well, why would you do this?

SCOTT: Well, I tried to do a dinner at Outback. We had an argument that morning and we had the dinner planned after work that evening and I kind of forced the dinner hoping it would smooth things over and that went poorly, it was quiet and no one spoke and --

GLENN: So maybe you should stop listening to your gut.

SCOTT: Yeah, probably.

GLENN: Yeah. But your gut is telling you now you should be the Couple of the Year contestant.

SCOTT: I need salvation, Glenn. I need someone to save me.

GLENN: I don't know if this is going to work. Okay, does she listen to the program at all?

SCOTT: No. She hates talk radio.

GLENN: She hates talk radio? Oh, this is getting even better. Okay, remember you wrote this about four months ago to me. You've done the contest. And that was your excuse last night. I'm going to ask you if you led her on and you said no and it was because I was sick yesterday and we couldn't do the Couple of the Year contest, okay?

SCOTT: I'm hoping to go to at least another dinner and have a better time this time.

GLENN: Where are you going to send her?

SCOTT: Try the Outback again. She likes it there.

GLENN: Listen to me. I'm going to ask you if you have anything to say to her. Count to five right after I say, do you have anything to say? And you say, yeah, Susan? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... I love you. And then -- because that way it's like you are fighting back the tears. Got it?

SCOTT: Got it.

GLENN: Okay, we have her on hold? Put her on hold so she can hear the stuff? And hear we go. So we'll have more on John McCain here in just a second. But first something we should have done yesterday.

VOICE: Now it's the contest of the year in the making. It's Glenn Beck's quest to find America's ultimate couple of love. The essays have been written, the heartfelt words have been read, and the winner has been selected. So now to introduce the country's most passionate pair, here's the love God himself, Glenn Beck.

GLENN: As you know, we do this every year where we start months in advance and I ask you to write an essay about the love of your life and we get thousands of entries in. And we read them all and we have Scott who wrote our winning entry here and we'll get his wife on the phone here in just a second. Scott, how are you, sir?

SCOTT: I'm doing fine, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: Very good. How long ago did you write this e-mail? This came in, this looks like an early --

SCOTT: About three or four months ago or so.

GLENN: So this was the first contest this year. Have you ever entered before?

SCOTT: No.

GLENN: And I so apologize for yesterday. We were supposed to do this yesterday. You knew that and I couldn't make the broadcast yesterday because I have been so sick lately and I wanted to delay it. Did you break the news to her yesterday or not? Did you keep the secret?

SCOTT: No, I kept it on the down low.

GLENN: Okay. So do we have her on the phone? Let's go to Susan. Susan?

SUSAN: Yes?

GLENN: Hi, how are you?

SUSAN: Just fine. And yourself?

GLENN: Well, very good. I don't know if you know who I am, but I'm Glenn Beck and I do a radio program. And --

SUSAN: I've definitely heard of you.

GLENN: You've definitely heard of me? And what we have is a contest that we've been -- we run every year and about three, four months ago your husband wrote in an essay and he's been selected as the winning essay and we were supposed to do this on Valentine's Day but I couldn't make it yesterday and so my apologies for wrecking your Valentine's Day. I don't know if you guys -- what you guys did yesterday but this was kind of like Scott's big surprise and then I pulled the rug from underneath him last night -- or yesterday afternoon and it was pretty ugly. So may I read the entry? Are you there? Susan?

SUSAN: Yes, I'm here.

GLENN: May I read what he wrote?

SUSAN: Yes, that's fine.

GLENN: Okay. He wrote -- this is pretty special, isn't it?

SUSAN: Yes.

GLENN: He wrote, "Dear Glenn, I've never entered a contest like this before. However, I felt I had to tell you about my beautiful wife. I really can't express in words how uniquely wonderful Susan truly is. Honestly at first I think I was just attracted to her butt, but as time went on it turned into so much more." Well, you are an honest one there, Scott. "I guess I knew it was true love the first time we kissed on the deck during that thunderstorm and that trip to the Outer Banks. Wow. What a perfect time it was. Do you remember the thunderstorm, Susan?

SUSAN: Oh, certainly.

GLENN: Perfect time?

SUSAN: Just perfect.

GLENN: Yeah, that's just weird. You guys have so much in common, that's exactly what he wrote, what a perfect time that was. "I guess what sets her apart is the distinctive way she shows her love unlike any other woman in" -- Albemarle County? Albemarle County? Is that how you say it?

SUSAN: Albemarle. Albemarle.

GLENN: Yes. "I could go on forever but that would take away my time with her and I have to get back to work at Virginia Business System where I fix copiers from 8:00 to 5:00 Monday through Friday. Besides, everyone tries to make love so complex and that's why I think we should be your Valentine's Couple of the Year because for me it's simple. I just love Susan."

SUSAN: Oh. Sorry. I'm in tears.

GLENN: I know, it's really, it's -- you've got a good guy there.

SUSAN: Yes, I do.

GLENN: And Scott, you sound like you have a wonderful woman there and I hope you treat her right.

SCOTT: I try when I can, Beck.

GLENN: Well, we're going to send you guys out. I understand your favorite restaurant is Outback. So we're going to send you out to your favorite restaurant and congratulations, both of you, for being the Couple of the Year. It's really a spectacular thing and I hope you have a great, just a terrific weekend.

SUSAN: Thank you so much.

GLENN: You bet. Scott, do you have anything you want to say to Susan?

SCOTT: I do, Glenn. Susan?

SUSAN: Yeah?

SCOTT: I love you with all my heart. I need you to believe that. Sues Susie love you, too, sweetie.

GLENN: Well, there it is. Boy, day after Valentine's Day and the love just keeps going on. Thank you guys so much. Congratulations.

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."
