Radical lefties call to 'shut down' U.S. Government

A disturbing pattern has developed among the left – they are now actively calling for a shut down of the US government.

“This is not conspiracy theory. We have it all on tape. These are the things we started talking to you about in July of 2008, and it is about come here. This is why I say you need to be prepared,” Glenn said.

First, he played the audio of David Swanson, Washington Director of Democrats.com who has worked for Dennis Kucinich and served on many progressive organizations.

“We're planning to model our behavior after the actions in Cairo, Egypt and Tahrir Square,” Swanson said. “We're going to be at Freedom Plaza in Washington D.C.. we're going to occupy it beginning October 6th, and we're going to remain, and we're not to nonviolently interfere, and shut down the offices of our government until we begin to get some movement. You know the actions in Egypt are very much an ongoing struggle and they're very much trying to get that momentum they had in Tahrir Square. So we're going to be there until we begin to take back control of our government.”

And their demands?

“There will be will be demands made including getting out of Afghanistan. As well as for the beginning of next year's austerity budgets coming out of Washington. But the general themes are the same that everybody comes up with that the major opinion in this country is demanding and that our government won't answer to. The same demands that other more partisan, and less principled movements are making, and that is to tax the rich, to end the wars and cut the military, to protect Social Security, and give us Medicare for all. To protect workers' rights and to strike and strike in solidarity. To protect our environment. To build our environment. “

“It's the same agenda that everybody has.”

“Here's some really important thing. Their model is Cairo. Their model is Cairo. This is something that President Obama said to do. Rise up. Youth rise up. They're starting to rise up,” Glenn said.

Glenn then played audio from Stephen Lerner from earlier in the spring. In the audio, Lerner proposes that homeowners make a “good business decision” and go into strategic default. If more people did it, the banks would go into insolvency.

“The shape shifters are here and they will say anything to get you on board. They are organizing the unorganized. What we're talking are flash mobs,” Glenn said.

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.
