GLENN: Okay. Now, I saw the movie and I went with a friend of mine. We went with our wives, and it's the same friend that we went a couple of weeks ago to another movie, New Moon. And I said halfway through New Moon

PAT: You've got to be kidding me. You went to New Moon?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: I don't remember you telling this story.

GLENN: Of course not.

PAT: You went to New Moon?

GLENN: I went to New Moon. My wife is a big New Moon fan, my daughters are a big New Moon fan. I actually brought my daughter this weekend to New Moon. So I've seen it twice. I wanted to claw my eyes out. I said to halfway through I said to my friend, "I think we need to check each other's man cards. I don't think we can carry..."

STU: Well, it is, I've heard it's littered with lots of shirtless men.

GLENN: It's ridiculous. It was ridiculous.

STU: Lots of abs, I would say. Is that true?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Would you say that's accurate? Would you say that's why you went?

GLENN: Well, not the first time. So the my daughter was like, "Dad." Because I was on the Blackberry the whole time saying, "Yeah, this is a good part, I saw it, he takes his shirt off." But anyway, I saw a... whew. After admitting to New Moon. I saw the Sandra Bullock movie this weekend. Yes, there, I said it, okay? I saw the Sandra Bullock movie.

PAT: Blind Side? Now, I want to see that.

GLENN: It was great.

STU: I saw it as well.

PAT: A true football story behind it. There's nothing shameful about that.

GLENN: Really?

STU: It's sports. It's okay.

PAT: It's sports.

GLENN: Okay, all right, yeah!

PAT: You can get your man card back for that.

GLENN: Thank you! We went to the movie and we were walking in and I said, this is Sandra Bullock. If this isn't good, man, we are definitely, we might as well just kiss each other now. And so we did because we didn't think that it was

STU: Just preparation. You always say be prepared. You always say be prepared.

GLENN: So went and I really, really liked it. I thought it was a great movie. It's one of those movies that you walk out really uplifted and I mean, the reason why I thought of it was because of the Forever Strong movie. That's the kind of movie that Forever Strong is, where you just walk out feeling good.

STU: Yeah. Blind Side was really good.

GLENN: You saw it?

STU: I read the book, too. It's the story of Michael Orr who is a guy in

PAT: Plays for the Ravens now.

STU: Ravens now. But yeah, they did actually a pretty good job with it. It was interesting because, you know, if I'm going to pick it apart from the right wing talk show host perspective, there's a few, like, there's a couple of George Bush jokes in there, there's a couple of instances where they are pointing out that, you know, her friend because she's hard core rightwing Christian conservative, like this family that did this.

GLENN: I love her.

STU: But all of her friends were like racists and all this other stuff. But the

GLENN: She's in Memphis. You expect some older women down South, not I mean, a tableful but you will expect that there are some, you know, people that are like, "Well, I don't know now." You know, there are

STU: Sure.

PAT: Although I lived down South for eight years. I didn't encounter any of those people.

GLENN: There's a difference between

PAT: None!

GLENN: There's a difference between the Old South and Texas.

STU: Well, but there's of course there's obviously racists everywhere.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Yeah, and there's white racists, there's black racists.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: I mean, living down South I saw black racism as well.

STU: But, like, the fact that they, like, find a way to work in a George Bush joke and do a story line that is literally hard core rightwing conservative saving a young black man who had absolutely no family, no life and rescuing from the most, the worst parts of society.

GLENN: From a rightwing family.

STU: Just, bringing them into their home for absolutely no reason other than they just cared about him.

GLENN: I laughed harder at this line than I think I've laughed at any other line, ever! Because it was finally, it was a good line on our side. And that was, "Did you ever think that we'd have a black son before we knew a Democrat?"

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: I mean, I laughed hard at that.

STU: Yeah. No, it was well done, though. And they stayed very true to the story in the book and, you know, it's a good heartwarming thing for the Hal days, I think. It's a good way to go.

GLENN: Oh, it's great.

PAT: Have you guys seen

GLENN: Because I didn't know the story at all. I went into the movie going, is this a true story, I think this is a true story, I don't know who this guy is because I'm not a sports fan. So I didn't know, you know, who this guy was at all. And when I saw it turn from the NCAA, NCAA?

STU: Good job, good job.

GLENN: Thank you. I was so disgusted, so disgusted. And I didn't know how it ended. And I thought, oh, you've got to be kidding me. Did they turn this guy around? You know, how much of that is real life? I thought, okay, are they going to have a hap they have got to have a happy ending now, what's the real story, et cetera, et cetera. Because this family was totally innocent. I mean, they were just

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Out of the goodness of their heart. Have you heard interviews with the family?

STU: Hmmm. No. I mean, they had a lot of quotes from them in the book and stuff when they were talking about it.

GLENN: Well, they're white and Christian and conservative; they must love us! Let's see if we can get, let's see if we can get them on the air.

STU: Yeah, great.

GLENN: I'd love to talk, especially her. I mean, I don't know if I don't know about anybody else, but I loved I read a review beforehand and it said, you know, it's the same old Sandra Bullock. I didn't think so at all.

STU: No, she did a good job.

GLENN: I thought she did a great job. And I loved I mean, if that's the way the woman really is, I love that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I thought she was great.

STU: Yeah. No, it's shocking to I think Hollywood. I don't know how they made that movie. I guess just because it was a popular book beforehand. But conservatives actually care about other people.

GLENN: No, no, no.

STU: That are poor and minorities. I mean, what are the odds?

GLENN: Look, look, look, you can be born with three eyes, too. It happens once in a while. It happens.

STU: So just a one in a billion case.

GLENN: Yeah, that's a conservative mutant clearly. I just thought it was a fantastic story that, I love the scene where she's laying in bed and she's smiling. She says, I'm happy. Shows where happiness really comes from, doing the right thing and serving others. It's fantastic.

 

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."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
