What did the Beck's do to remember 9/11?

Glenn gave an intimate look into how he and his family remembered the tragedy and sacrifice of 9/11. Here's a hint - it did NOT involve calling anything a "shame" or saying it was time to move on. It DID involve thanking some of the real heroes.

When Glenn's daughter asked him why a police officer was standing behind the people reading names during the memorial service at Ground Zero, Glenn decided to explain what the real heroes did that day ten years ago.

"I just decided to tell her about the First Responders and that's when we went to the video and found all the 9/11 Truther videos and that's when Mom got out a couple of pieces of paper and the crayons and we sat at the kitchen table and he we talked about it and we drew pictures of police cars and fire trucks and the World Trade Center. And my son, I knew it left a mark on him because he drew the holes where the fire was in the World Trade Center exactly the way it was. Kind of at an angle. And in the shape of an airplane," Glenn said.

"And then we wrote letters and then we walked down to our precinct and ‑‑ here in New York, and we walked into the police station and my kids went up to the ‑‑ just like, I mean, I've never ‑‑ I've never been into a New York precinct before. It was just like NYPD ‑‑ yeah, was it NYPD Blue, you know, the guy's sitting up on the desk everything and they were looking way up on the desk. And he said, how can I help you two? And they put their letters up and ‑‑ and the police officers came around and they were so gracious. And they talked to the kids and they were just, they were great with them."

"And then we went to the fire station and we did the same thing and all the firemen were gone except for one and ‑‑ but the big red door was closed, the fire trucks were gone and the trucks were ‑‑ the door was closed and so we got in a side door and we came in where the trucks were, and there was a memorial that they had built obviously in the years past that had all of the pictures of the guys from that firehouse who were lost on September 11th and it was quite difficult because there had been candles that the guys had brought in and they had lit candles underneath all of the pictures."

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.
