Newsflash: Spending and Investing are the same thing!

The Bernays influence is going to be all over the State of the Union address tonight, as Democrats will start to use “investing” as their new buzzword to replace spending. Remember how public relation replaced propaganda? Same thing, just a different name. Pat and Stu had the story on radio this morning.

Pat played audio from Valerie Jarrett who said, “We are going to be investing in all kinds of ways that are going to create an incentive for jobs to be created right here.”

“And there's the keyword for tonight.  This, this will be the word:  Investing,” Pat said. “We're not going to spend anymore.  We're not spending.  We're investing.  That's great.  So now it's an investment.”

“Over and over and over that's what you're going to hear,” Pat added.

Stu predicted some things President Obama would say tonight. “If you can just say like, we're investing in education and green energy and the state of the union is strong.”

“Despite the fact that investing in green energy is proven to be a disaster for countries all around the world and also that investing in education does not buy you smarter kids.  That's not the way it's done.  You don't purchase smarter children by dumping money into education blindly,” explained Stu.

Stu and Pat discussed the Washington, DC education system, which was perpetually ranked very poorly despite spending more than most states on spending per pupil. And when Michelle Rhee came into DC and started to make smart reforms, she got booted out of office in favor of returning to blind spending on education.

“If you attach certain words together, the impression that the White House has and what the people in Washington have is that you as a viewer of this speech are so dumb, you're not going to be able to pick up that those two words are the same thing.  That when you're complaining about spending and you're going to applaud investing.  Well, it's the same money going the same way:  Out!,” Stu said.

“Money we don't have on programs that don't work,” he added.

“It's still debt.  That's all it is,” Pat said as the segment ended.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
