Jesse Jackson's terrifying plan to socialize the nation

On radio today, Glenn played some audio from Jesse Jackson, Jr. telling a reporter for The Daily Caller that Obama should not only circumvent Congress to get his agenda done, but that he should use tax dollars to employ every in the country who needs a job. Every. Single. Unemployed. Person.

Watch the video from The Daily Caller below:

In the video Jackson said:

I believe quite frankly in the direct hiring of 15 million unemployed Americans. At $40,000 a head, some more than $40,000, some less than 40,000, that's a $600 billion stimulus. It could be a five‑year program. For another $104 billion, we bail out all of the states. The problem within the states ends tomorrow for 104 billion. For another 100 billion, we bail out all of the cities. For about $804 billion, we put 15 million Americans to work, we bail out the states and we bail out the cities but we do it through direct hire. We put people to work cleaning up communities, we put people to work through a Civilian Conservation Corps, through a Works Progress Administration because the hour demands it. And as more people work, they pay taxes, they pay taxes into the fourth quarter, they buy wares, they buy homes.

If his plan for nationalizing the unemployed workforce isn't scary enough, his proposal as for how Obama implements it is even more terrifying. The Daily Caller reports:

“I hope the president continues to exercise extraordinary constitutional means, based on the history of Congresses that have been in rebellion in the past,” Jackson said. “He’s looking administratively for ways to advance the causes of the American people, because this Congress is completely dysfunctional.”

Wow.

"Now, beyond the math that just doesn't work, did you hear what he said? We have a congress in rebellion? Excuse me? There's no constitutional crisis here. There is no ‑‑ do you see what has happened?" Glenn said.

"The rebels are in charge and they're turning this thing upside down to where if you follow the Constitution and you have a representative government, if you actually follow the rules of the Constitution and the republic, you're a rebel," Glenn added.

"We're in deep trouble because they have flipped everything around. Barack knows you have to change the conversation, we have to change the way we talk to each other. We have to change our history. We have to change our traditions. They have done it. They have done it. And now they are flipping, they are flipping the rebels around."

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.
