Glenn agrees with Obama...again!

The unlikeliest of all unlikelies happened as Glenn has agreed with President Obama yet again. This time, it was White House Press Secretary Jay Carney's response to questions about the hypocrisy over Mr. 'no lobbyist' Obama giving more than 200 donors cushy government gigs.

Jay Carney told reporters, "Now, the people we have appointed, the president has appointed to key positions all have sterling academic credentials, years of public service, in the private sector, and they are imminently qualified - to which they were appointed.  And I would make the point here that having enacted these ethical, high ethical standards, the highest in history and having pursued and delivered on a level of transparency that is unprecedented. It is important to note that being a supporter does not qualify you for a job or guarantee you a job, but it does not disqualify you obviously."

But one intrepid reporter asked, "And how does that square with what the president said in his announcement speech in 2007.  He said the Senate and the lobbyists and the special interests have turned our government into a game only they can afford to play.  They get the access while you get to write the letter.  He said the time for those politics is over."

"You were asking me about supporters of the president who may have been donors who have gotten positions, and I would point out to the fact that those, the people who got those positions got them because of their credentials.  They also happen to be donors and in some cases there are obviously numerous and far more ‑‑ far many more cases of people who weren't donors who were appointed to jobs," he responded.

"We learn that it's just an amazing coincidence that the most qualified people also happened to be the biggest donors," Pat joked.

But Glenn could see what Carney was saying. After all, the janitor at the White House probably wasn't a big donor.

And maybe Jay Carney wasn't a donor. In fact, maybe they could give Carney's job away to a donor! "I'd rather have the paper cartoon mouse than some of the people that are working at the White House," Glenn joked.

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.
