What's the best movie of the summer according to Glenn?

Glenn had some down time this weekend, and he decided to take his wife on a date to go see the movie Moneyball. What did he think?

"Best movie I've seen in a long time.  I'm taking everybody on staff," he said.

"This is an incredible movie.  It is absolutely everything that I have been trying to explain.  When I say spit yourself out of the system, this is exactly what I mean.  It's exactly what I mean.  The whole world is being redesigned.  The whole world is unsustainable.  Everything you knew in business, every old ‑‑ every system is not going to work.  Spit yourself out of the system and redesign it now.  Turn it upside down now before it's turned upside down on you anyway.  This is the nonrevolutionary side of my message.  This is the smart businessman part of the message," Glenn said.

The movie deals with coach Billy Bean putting together a team of inexpensive (and somewhat unwanted) players using statistics rather than some of the traditional scouting practices. The team ends up being very successful despite its lack of big name players.

While Glenn hadn't read the book, Stu explained that the overall message was about finding a way to succeed by thinking outside the box.

"It was a bunch of players that nobody wanted and ‑‑ because they kind of figured out a better system, they were able to bring them together to form a winning team cheaply.  You know, going against all sort of predetermined thinking.  And that's the message of that book.  It's really not about baseball.  It's about thinking outside of the box.  It's about coming up with something that no one else has seen," Stu said.

"I wish I would have known something about baseball because, oh, my gosh.  I would have been on this story a long time ago.  You've got to go see this movie.  You haven't seen it yet; you have to go see this movie.  If you want to know the nonrevolutionary terms of what I mean on the world's going to change and don't let it change on you, everything you think you know is about to change, this is it," Glenn said.

"This is the more optimistic, 'Hey, we're still going to be playing baseball' kind of message that I'm not sure is exactly true, but hypothetically I'll say the ballparks are still open in my world," he joked.

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.
