Incompetent failure being considered for FBI's top job?

Who is on President Obama’s shortlist to lead the FBI? Jamie Gorelick, who installed the wall of separation between the FBI and the CIA in regards to sharing information. Glenn had the story on radio.

“Guess who is going to be ‑‑ who they're trying to appoint as the new head of the FBI?  This will drive you nuts.  This has got to be one of the biggest sticks in the ice to every single FBI agent in the country,” Glenn said.

“It's Jamie Gorelick,” Pat explained.

“Most people are saying, why do I know Jamie Gorelick?  That sounds familiar,” Glenn said.

“It sure does.  You know her from the Clinton years and from the 9/11 commission hearings.  She is the one who installed the wall of separation between the FBI and the CIA so that they couldn't share information back and forth,” Pat explained.

“She was the one that after 9/11, she was really humiliated,” Glenn added.

Pat said that after 9/11 she was demanding answers during the 9/11 commission hearings, she was demanding answers and everyone was saying it was partly due to policies she helped put in place.

“She is the one that tied the hands of the FBI and the CIA and they put that wall up that people couldn't talk to each other that helped the 9/11 hijacking take place,” Glenn said.

Surely, that mistake on her resume would make people question her qualifications for this job. But, as Glenn explained, that’s not the only job she’s failed at.

“Now she's also serving as the Vice Chairman of the Federal National Mortgage Association known as Fannie Mae, which the government‑sponsored enterprise began bundling subprime loans into securitized financial instruments,” Glenn added.

“She's now going to be the head of the FBI.  God help us all,” Glenn said.

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.
