Obama blames economy on everyone but himself...

President Obama took to the stand yesterday to offer a “reassuring” word to the American people and the world, in hopes to offset what was turning out to a dismal day on Wall Street in response to S&P’s credit downgrade.

The Dow was in trouble long before the President addressed the nation, down over 400 points, but what was supposed to be a rallying cry to the public, clearly fell on deaf ears, for the Presidents speech resulted in an additional 200 point run of the market, leaving the Dow down 634 points on the day.

Way to go Mr. President!

Yesterday’s speech, besides being remarkably uninspiring, sought to remind us all that President Obama is in way, shape, or form to blame for the beating our economy and country has taken these past few weeks.

In fact, Obama blamed Bush (surprise, surprise), headwinds (?), earthquakes, the Arab Spring (even though he used to support that), conservatives (because when in doubt, blame the right), and just about everything else for the bad economy.

The President proclaimed that we knew “from the onset” about the damage the debt debate would cause “precisely because we were inheriting so many challenges.” He also pointed to the fact that there was a budget surplus in 2001, but a trillion dollar deficit in 2008 when he took office (apparently all the money he has added to that deficit is trivial).

“To make matters worse, in the last few months, the economies already had absorbed an earthquake in Japan, the economic headwinds coming from Europe, the Arab spring…” Obama continued.

The speech proved to be just another example of our President’s tremendous aptitude to place blame and divert attention away from himself. But Glenn is not convinced that the President is as uninvolved as he claims, and sees this as a coordinated effort to bring down the country.

“This is, as George Soros said, ‘We just need to have a changed decline of the system.’ That's what's happening right now. This is a managed decline,” Glenn said on radio this morning.

“With that being said, it's not by happenstance, it's not incompetence that is bringing it [the economy] down.  You're seeing it brought down now in a controlled way,” Glenn added.

Apparently the President has decided the best way to jump into action is to take the day off and clear his schedule, which is what he has done today. There are even rumors of Congress being called into session.

“Oh, that's going to make it better, Mr. President,” Glenn said. “Just like when you started talking yesterday, the Dow was at 400 and now we're down over 600. By the time you were finished talking, it had fallen 200 points. Shhh. Shhh.  Quiet, Mr. President, quiet.”

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.
