Glenn and company have teased a new show coming to Insider Extreme. Today, he unveiled the host of the new show, S.E. Cupp. She will host, “S.E. Cupp”, which will debut next Tuesday, February 8th, at 1pm ET.

Glenn interviewed S.E. Cupp on radio this morning as part of the announcement of her new show. After handling introductions, Glenn asked her to talk about some of the things she would be discussing on the show.

“Basically we're going to talk politics obviously because that's in my wheelhouse. But also in my wheelhouse, I don't know if you're aware, I know I look like a city girl, but I like to go hunting, I like to go fishing. I love meat and meat products,” she said.

“I love NASCAR,” she added.

Glenn then spent the next few minutes trying to convince his newest employee to set him up with NASCAR tickets.

“There's like nobody at NASCAR will make any special exemption or anything,” Glenn said. “Do you have any strings you can pull?”

“Are you a deer hunter? Have you hunted?” Glenn asked.

“I have. I go hunting every year. I go fishing up in Alaska every Fall,” she responded. “I have guns. I have guns and I go hunting and fishing at every opportunity.”

Glenn also asked her about the way the media treats strong female politicians, referencing recent SNL sketches that featured Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin.

“I think the more success people like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann have at getting their message out, the harder the media is. You know, Sarah Palin is authentic. Sarah Palin is influential. She galvanizes people in ways that the liberal media can't. And that's a real threat to them. The fact that Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann are women I think is incidental. The liberal media probably thinks that they are easier targets but, in fact, they end up looking more sympathetic. The harder you go after a Michele Bachmann or a Sarah Palin, I think they win more favor with, you know, the rest of the country,” she said.

While Glenn was a fan of most of what she had to say, there was some joking disagreement about her “unapologetic” stance as a Republican.

“When it comes down to it I think most people are except when it† when it comes to pragmatic governing, I think libertarianism is really hard to apply,” she said. Glenn usually ascribes his political beliefs to be libertarian.

“I wish I would have asked that question before we hired you,” Glenn joked before thanking her for coming on the radio show.

“S.E. Cupp” will debut on Tuesday February 8th at 1pm ET.

GLENN:  Insider Extreme is taking the next step into the future as we add yet another broadcast to Insider Extreme.  As you know, you can watch this show in a, what is it, six‑camera shoot every day online.  Stream it or, you know, grab it when you can.  You know that we have an Apple iPhone and iPad app that is, we're just waiting for the approval now, but that's ready to go.  You can get free audio at GlennBeck.com of the entire show and stream it there.  We have done documentaries.  The latest is Rumors of War, which is the quality of Frontline.

PAT:  You seem to be relegating something to the back of the bus.

GLENN:  Oh, yeah.

PAT:  Should have been from the very beginning?

GLENN:  We had to give Pat and Stu an extra bone for†‑‑

PAT:  I don't think that was contractual at all.

GLENN:  Was on my side.  They do the Fourth Hour of this broadcast afterwards.  A lot of things that are still in the pipeline that we'll be announcing soon, but we have to announce today the addition of a new show on Insider Extreme by S.†E. Cupp.  You might know S. E., which I have no idea what her real name is.  Samantha Elizabeth.  No, it's not.

PAT:  Is that it?

CUPP:  That's not it.

GLENN:  Sarah Ellen.

CUPP:  No.

GLENN:  She is joining us.

PAT:  Stephanie†‑‑

CUPP:  You don't know me at all.

PAT:  English?

GLENN:  Stephanie English Cupp will be joining us and she's doing†‑‑ what are we†‑‑ it's to the fifth hour but it is the fifth hour of the broadcast day of GlennBeck.com and it's called, I think the S.†E. Cupp show.  That's what I've heard.

CUPP:  Well, that's how creative we are here.  We brainstormed for days and days and days.

GLENN:  So what is the show?

CUPP:  Well, yeah.  Basically we're going to talk politics obviously because that's in my wheelhouse.  But also in my wheelhouse, I don't know if you're aware†‑‑


CUPP:  I know I look like a city girl, but I like to go hunting, I like to go fishing.  I love meat and meat products.

PAT:  That's a good thing.  He can

CUPP:  So†‑‑

GLENN:  She's a NASCAR fan.

CUPP:  Yeah, I love NASCAR.

GLENN:  Can you get me into one of the big NASCAR†‑‑

CUPP:  Can I get you in?

GLENN:  Seriously.

CUPP:  I'll do my best.

GLENN:  No, seriously I can't†‑‑ honestly, Stu, how long have I wanted to go one of the big NASCAR events?

CUPP:  What's been the holdup?

GLENN:  I can't go†‑‑ because of security, I just can't go.  And I'm like, it's NASCAR.  That's†‑‑

CUPP:  You have to go.

GLENN:  That is the safest place on the Earth for me.

CUPP:  It really is.

GLENN:  Right.

CUPP:  I mean, there's military flyovers.  You are going to be just fine there.

GLENN:  No, I know that.

CUPP:  Yeah.

GLENN:  I know that, but for a myriad of reasons.

CUPP:  Yeah.

GLENN:  I just can't go just like a regular person.

CUPP:  We'll go and I'll watch you are back.  Okay?

GLENN:  Anyway, I can't†‑‑ so there's like nobody at NASCAR will make any special exemption or anything.  And I'm like, I really want†‑‑ I wanted to go for†‑‑ how long have I wanted to go, Stu?

STU:  No, this has been a big thing.

GLENN:  A big deal.  And I'm like, please.  I just, do you have any strings you can pull?

CUPP:  I mean, if you haven't been to a race ‑‑

GLENN:  I know.  Stop.

CUPP:  Okay.  I don't mean to throw salt in the wounds.

GLENN:  That's what it is.  That's what it is.

CUPP:  Okay.

GLENN:  It's an open wound.  I'm begging for help here.

CUPP:  Yeah, all right.  We'll fix it.

GLENN:  Okay.

PAT:  Something like it.  I mean, if you were to have like a circular street and you kept turning left around it.

CUPP:  Hilarious.

PAT:  That would be a lot like NASCAR.

CUPP:  It would be nothing like NASCAR.

GLENN:  No, no, no.

PAT:  If I had like a circular driveway and I just kept going left around it.

GLENN:  Have you ever been†‑‑

PAT:  That would be a lot like NASCAR.

GLENN:  Pat lives in kind of a cul‑de‑sac.  What's the difference?

PAT:  What's the deal?

GLENN:  Have you ever been to Indy 500?

PAT:  No, no, I haven't.

GLENN:  Have you ever seen Indy?  I imagine nice car's even better.

CUPP:  It is.  It's intense.

GLENN:  But it's just incredible.  It's just incredible.

PAT:  Oh, it must be.  It must be.

GLENN:  So S. E., I'm thinking that you do this for a few weeks, get comfortable and then you come over here and Pat's suddenly doing†‑‑

PAT:  The fifth hour, the fourth and fifth hour.

CUPP:  I like the sound of that.

GLENN:  Yeah.  Yeah.

CUPP:  This is my plan the whole time.

GLENN:  Was it really?

CUPP:  Yeah.

GLENN:  So you say you like meat but is this a meat show?

CUPP:  Oh, I wish.  From your lips to God's ears, Glenn.  But no, we have to†‑‑ we have to give a little more red meat, so to speak.

GLENN:  Yeah.

CUPP:  So we're going to talk politics.  It's what I like to do.

GLENN:  But then you'll talk about taking down a deer?

CUPP:  With you then it's about beef jerky and deer hunting and pork sausage.

GLENN:  Are you a deer hunter?  Have you hunted?

CUPP:  I have.  I go hunting every year.  I go fishing up in Alaska every fall and, yeah, I'm†‑‑ I guess I'm unexpected but really there are plenty of people who do what I do.

GLENN:  But she's like Peter Parker, isn't she?  Look at her.  Look at her.  She's like got the glasses and she's like, hey, I'm just like this prim and proper, "I'm going to go kill a deer."

CUPP:  Yeah.

GLENN:  Right?

STU:  Hang on.  That goes†‑‑ are you like one of these politicians that goes hunting like once every 15 years?

CUPP:  No.

STU:  Only for the cameras?

CUPP:  No.  No.  I have guns.  I have guns and I go hunting and fishing at every opportunity.

GLENN:  You live here in Manhattan?

CUPP:  I live here in Manhattan.

GLENN:  So you don't have guns here?

CUPP:  Well, I don't have them here, no.

GLENN:  Right.  It's not going to help you.  I know because ‑‑

CUPP:  Well, that's what you do to go hunting in Manhattan.  So it's okay.  I keep them upstate for when I go hunting.

GLENN:  Right.

CUPP:  Where, you know, the place that I actually hunt.  So it's okay.

GLENN:  Okay.  So the hunting and politics show from†‑‑

CUPP:  Exactly.  Exactly.  Hunting, fishing, eating meat and politics.

GLENN:  Okay, let me ask you politics.  Let me ask you this:  Did you see Saturday Night Live on Saturday?

CUPP:  I didn't.

GLENN:  They took on Michele Bachmann.  I think they're doing, I think they're now doing to Michele Bachmann what they did to Sarah Palin.

CUPP:  Yeah.

GLENN:  Do you think they are harder on them because they're women, or is this the same treatment that a guy would get?

CUPP:  I think the more success people like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann have at getting their message out, the harder the media is.  You know, Sarah Palin is authentic.  Sarah Palin is influential.  She galvanizes people in ways that the liberal media can't.  And that's a real threat to them.  The fact that Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann are women I think is incidental.  The liberal media probably thinks that they are easier targets but, in fact, they end up looking more sympathetic.  The harder you go after a Michele Bachmann or a Sarah Palin, I think they win more favor with, you know, the rest of the country.

GLENN:  I think so, too.  Give me the†‑‑ play the†‑‑ from MSNBC the reporter that is talking about how Michele Bachmann is good at punishing people.  Here it is.

VOICE:  Why doesn't anybody speak out against her if they don't like her?

VOICE:  Because she is an independent power in the Republican Party and she has shown the ability to punish people who speak out against her.  Even if she is not necessarily taken that serious in the House Republican caucus, her ability to draw on support from the Tea Party movement is taken seriously and we saw very vivid examples of that.

PAT:  Scares people.  She scares people.

GLENN:  She's able to punish people.

CUPP:  Yeah, she is†‑‑ I've met her a number of times.  Let me tell you she is scary.  No.

GLENN:  I was going to say I love her.

CUPP:  She's five foot nothing.  She is a sweetheart.  She's incredibly smart.  She's very kind and polite.  I mean, these people don't know her.  They just want to villainize her because she's gaining momentum.  She's gaining favor with the base and that's a huge problem with the liberal media.

GLENN:  Do you think that is the liberal media that's alone in that or the Republicans are also part of this because she's not playing by their rules?

CUPP:  There is a contingent within the GOP that is threatened by people like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, absolutely.

GLENN:  Are you a Republican or are you an independent, are you more of a libertarian or what are you?

CUPP:  I'm a Republican.  Unapologetically.  I'm a Republican.  I have some libertarian†‑‑

GLENN:  I wish I would have asked that question before we hired you.

CUPP:  Yeah, right?  I'm Republican.

GLENN:  Are you really?

CUPP:  Yeah.  Yeah.  But, you know, I have some libertarian†‑‑ you know, I have a libertarian streak.

GLENN:  I guarantee you if we†‑‑ maybe we'll do a test on you later this week.  This is what we do.  We hire people, then we test them and we probe and we test them.

CUPP:  Sounds great.

GLENN:  We'll experiment on you.  I bet you she's more†‑‑ because I have the†‑‑ most people are libertarian.

CUPP:  When it comes down to it I think most people are except when it†‑‑ when it comes to pragmatic governing, I think libertarianism is really hard to apply.

GLENN:  Oh, so you†‑‑ okay.  So you run from the hard things?

CUPP:  Oh, that's nice.  That's nice.

GLENN:  All right.

STU:  This is the sort of torture you can expect.

CUPP:  Thanks for the warm welcome.

GLENN:  It is good to have you here.

CUPP:  Yeah.

GLENN:  I know you've been working on the show for a while and I'm anxious to see.  When does it start?

CUPP:  We're really excited.  It starts February 8th at GlennBeck.com/secupp.

PAT:  That's a week from today, right?

GLENN:  We'll reverse it eventually.  It will be SECupp/GlennBeck.com one day.

GLENN:  It probably will be.

PAT:  Wow.

GLENN:  It probably will be.  So that starts on February 8th on the Insider Extreme, full video.  And it's a very different, a very different show.  And you don't want to miss it.

CUPP:  I might be able to get you on once or twice.

PAT:  Wow.

GLENN:  Let's see what you can do with NASCAR.

CUPP:  Okay.

GLENN:  Okay.  Back in just a second.

The themes of healing and redemption appear throughout the Bible.

Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength. — 1 Corinthians 15:43
It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners. — Mark 2:17.

So, for many Christians, it's no surprise to hear that people of faith live longer lives.

Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise. — Jeremiah 17:14.

But it is certainly lovely to hear, and a recent study by a doctoral student at Ohio State University is just one more example of empirical evidence confirming the healing benefits of faith and religious belief.

Moreover, the study finds that religious belief can lengthen a person's life.

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. — Proverbs 17:22
Lord, your discipline is good, for it leads to life and health. You restore my health and allow me to live! — Isaiah 38:16

The study analyzed over 1,000 obituaries nationwide and found that people of faith lived longer than people who were not religious. Laura Wallace, lead author of the study, noted that "religious affiliation had nearly as strong an effect on longevity as gender does, which is a matter of years of life."

The study notes that, "people whose obits mentioned a religious affiliation lived an average of 5.64 years longer than those whose obits did not, which shrunk to 3.82 years after gender and marital status were considered."

And He called to Him His twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction. — Matthew 10:1

"The researchers found that part of the reason for the boost in longevity came from the fact that many religiously affiliated people also volunteered and belonged to social organizations, which previous research has linked to living longer. The study provides persuasive evidence that there is a relationship between religious participation and how long a person lives," said Baldwin Way, co-author of the study and associate professor of psychology at Ohio State.

Prayer is good medicine, and faith is a good protector.

In addition, the study showed how the effects of religion on longevity might depend in part on the personality and average religiosity of the cities where people live, Way said.

Prayer is good medicine, and faith is a good protector.

And the power of the Lord was with him to heal. — Luke 5:17
Heal the sick in it and say to them, The kingdom of God has come near to you. — Luke 10:9

In early June, the Social Security and Medicare trustees released their annual report on the fiscal health of these programs, and the situation looks dire. Medicare is scheduled to run out of money in 2026 (three years sooner than anticipated), while Social Security is expected to run out in 2034. The rising national debt is only one of the well-known financial struggles the millennial generation faces. The burdens of student loan debt, high housing prices (thanks to zoning restrictions), stagnant wage growth, the rising cost of healthcare and lingering aftershocks of the Great Recession are among the biggest sources of economic anxiety millennials feel.

Progressive politicians have been very successful at courting the youth vote, partly because they actually promote policy ideas that address many of these concerns. As unrealistic or counterproductive as Senator Bernie Sanders' proposals for single-payer health care or a $15 an hour minimum wage might be, they feel in theory like they would provide the economic stability and prosperity millennials want.

RELATED: Time to reverse course: America is being corrupted by its own power

Republicans, on the other hand, have struggled to craft a message to address these concerns. Fiscal conservatives recognize, correctly, that the burden of the $20 trillion national debt and over $200 trillion in unfunded liabilities will fall on millennials. Some conservatives have even written books about that fact. But the need to reform entitlements hasn't exactly caught millennials' attention. Pollster Kristen Soltis Anderson, in her book The Selfie Vote, notes that millennials generally view protecting the safety net as more important than reducing the deficit.

Clearly, Republicans have a problem. They need to craft solutions that address the millennial generation's struggles, but they can't seem to sell entitlement reform, their biggest policy preference that addresses those problems. The Republican approach to wooing millennials on policy is failing because talking about stopping the debt from reaching an unsustainable level is long-term and abstract, and offers few immediate tangible benefits. A new approach to both pave the way for entitlement reform and give millennials an immediate financial boost is to first reform not entitlement spending, but the payroll tax: specifically, by partially (or wholly) replacing it with a value-added tax.

Under the current Social Security model, workers pay for the benefits of current retirees through the payroll tax. This system creates the illusion of a pension program, in which what you put in is what you get out, but in reality Social Security is a universal safety net program for the elderly paid for by taxes. The payroll tax falls on workers and is a tax on labor, while the value-added tax (VAT) is a tax on consumption imposed at every part of the production process. Assuming that this policy change is revenue-neutral, switching to a VAT will shift the responsibility for funding Social Security and Medicare away from workers, disproportionately poorer and younger, and onto everyone participating in the economy as a whole. Furthermore, uncoupling Social Security funding from payroll taxes would pave the way for fiscal reforms to transform the program from a universal benefit program to one geared specifically to eliminating old-age poverty, such as means-testing benefits for high-income beneficiaries, indexing benefits to prices rather than wages or changing the retirement age.

Switching from the payroll tax to the VAT would address both conservative and liberal tax policy preferences.

Switching from the payroll tax to the VAT would address both conservative and liberal tax policy preferences. As the Tax Policy Center notes, the change would actually make the tax system more progressive. The current payroll tax is regressive, meaning that people with lower incomes tend to pay a higher effective tax rate than people with higher incomes. On the other hand, the value-added tax is much closer to proportional than the payroll tax, meaning that each income group pays closer to the same effective tax rate.

For Republicans, such a change would fit conservative economic ideas about the long-run causes of economic growth. A value-added tax has a much broader base than the payroll tax, and therefore would allow for much lower marginal tax rates, and lower marginal tax rates mean smaller disincentives to economic activity. According to the Tax Foundation's analysis of a value-added tax, the VAT would be a more economically efficient revenue source than most other taxes currently in the tax code.

Not only would replacing part or all of the payroll tax provide an immediate benefit to millennial taxpayers, it would also open the door for the much-needed entitlement reforms that have been so politically elusive. Furthermore, it would make the tax code both more pro-growth and less regressive. In order to even begin to address the entitlement crisis, win millennial support and stimulate the economy in a fiscally responsible manner, Republicans must propose moving from the payroll tax to the VAT.

History at the Mercury Museum

Alanna Sarabia interviews Glenn Beck for "Good Morning Texas" at Mercury Studios.

Several months ago, at the Miss Universe competition, two women took a selfie, then posted it on Instagram. The caption read, "Peace and love." As a result of that selfie, both women faced death threats, and one of the women, along with her entire family, had to flee her home country. The occasion was the 2017 Miss Universe competition, and the women were Miss Iraq and Miss Israel. Miss Iraq is no longer welcome in her own country. The government threatened to strip her of her crown. Of course, she was also badgered for wearing a bikini during the competition.

RELATED: Media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam bias sweeps THIS fact under the rug

In an interview, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, said:

When I posted the picture I didn't think for a second there would be blowback. I woke up to calls from my family and the Miss Iraq Organization going insane. The death threats I got online were so scary. The director of the Miss Iraq Organization called me and said they're getting heat from the ministry. He said I have to take the picture down or they will strip me of my title.

Yesterday, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, posted another selfie with Miss Israel, during a visit to Jerusalem.

In an interview, she said that:

I don't think Iraq and Israel are enemies; I think maybe the governments are enemies with each other. There's a lot of Iraqi people that don't have a problem with Israelis.

This is, of course, quite an understatement: Iraq, home to roughly 15,000 Palestinians, refuses to acknowledge Israel as a legitimate country, as it is technically at war with Israel. The adages says that a picture is worth a thousand words. What are we to do when many of those words are hateful or deadly? And how can we find the goodness in such bad situations?
