Is Harry Reid serious?

Senator Harry Reid has said a lot of things over the years, but his recent remarks on cut, cap, and balance bill may be the most ridiculous of all time.

“I think this piece of legislation is as weak as anything that's come on the floor,” Reid said. “I'm not going to waste time on this piece of legislation which I think is anathema to our country. We're going to have a vote tomorrow. I'm not going to wait until Saturday. We're going to have a vote tomorrow, and I feel confident that this legislation will be exposed one way or the other. The American people should understand this is a bad piece of legislation. Perhaps some of the worst legislation in the history of this country.”

So a bill that attempts to balance our budget is the worst piece of legislation in our nation’s history? In 235 years, America has never seen anything worse than this bill? Is he serious?

This statement seems remarkably irrational, even for Harry Reid. On radio this morning, Stu chose to identify several pieces of legislation that would certainly top cut, cap, and balance on a ranking of the “worst legislation.”

“You have to think Harry Reid who is Mormon who knows there's laws that made it legal to kill Mormons in Missouri until 1970s,” Stu pointed out. “How about the Indian removal act that allowed the country to ship out Indians, or the fugitive slave act from the 1850s that allowed slave catchers.”

“How about the espionage act of 1917 under president Woodrow Wilson,” he continued.

Stu obviously must not understand the economic complexities that caused Reid to be so distraught over the cut, cap, and balance legislation.

“Listen. Listen. Stu. Stu. Balancing the budget you misunderstand. Round the up the Japanese. Round up the Germans. Round up anyone that speaks ill of the president. Kick the Indians off of their land,” Glenn joked.

Ultimately, Glenn summed it up best – when it comes to Senator Reid, there is no rationale.

“This man is so incredibly dishonest I can't begin to describe,” Glenn said. “You have to be -- you have to be a gold medalist in gymnastics mental gymnastics to be able to understand his perspective and claim to be honest. “

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.
