Santorum v. Ron Paul on foreign policy

Ron Paul and Rick Santorum clashed over foreign policy in the Middle East - specifically when it came to Iran. On the one hand, Paul vehemently opposed sanctions against the country for developing nuclear weapons, pointing out that America never sanctioned the Soviet Union which was a much bigger threat to the United States. Other the other hand, Santorum felt that Iran posed a huge threat to Israel, and as an ally we should support them.

"I think that (sanctions) makes it much worse. Why would that be so strange if the Soviets and the Chinese have nuclear weapons, we tolerated the Soviets. We didn't attack them and they were a much greater than danger. They were the greatest danger to us in our whole history but you don't go to war against them. I mean, this whole idea of sanctions, the free traders, they're the ones who put on these trade sanctions. This is why we still don't have a trade relationship with Cuba. It's about time we talk to Cuba and stop fighting these wars that are about 30 or 40 years old," Paul argued.

Santorum responded, "As the author of the Iran support act which he is criticizing, because I authored it when I was the United States Senate, would actually impose sanctions on Iran because of their nuclear program. Iran is not Iceland, Ron. Iran is a country that has been at war with us since 1979. Iran is a country that has killed more American men and women in uniform in Iraq and Afghanistan than the Iraquis and Afghanistans have. The Iranians are the existential threat to the State of Israel. You ask the Israelis what keeps them up at night. It's the Iranians funding the Hamas and Hezbollah."

While Glenn tends to agree with Ron Paul on some libertarian issues, he sided with Santorum on this foreign policy issue. "I'm telling you, there's nobody that can school anyone on the Middle East like Rick Santorum," Glenn said.

"Ron Paul I think uses his libertarian sometimes as an excuse. I don't understand his policies in the Middle East. I do understand the idea that he expresses and he's right about this, we have caused much of the problems over in the Middle East for us," he said. Glenn said that America has been getting into bed with dictators for too long and that's why so many people hate us over in the Middle East.

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.
