Newt: I'm a big fan of FDR & Woodrow Wilson

Once again Newt Gingrich of the past comes back to haunt Newt Gingrich of the future. Clip after clip after clip of old Newt reveals a disturbing love of all things Woodrow Wilson and FDR. There was yet another old Newt clip discovered this week, this time praising Wilson, FDR and the creation of the United Nations. No wonder Newt hasn't agreed to come back on the radio - the great debater has met his match: old Newt!

What did Gingrich say?

First:

NEWT: "But I want to say a second about the UN because I'm a big fan of Franklin Roosevelt's. I'm frankly a fan of Woodrow Wilson's and I think what they were trying to accomplish was terribly important."

Second:

"I come out of the Theodore Roosevelt LaFollette progressive tradition."

Third:

"And I do want to pick up directly on what Dick Gephardt said because he said it right. And no Republican here should kid themselves about it. The greatest leaders in fighting for an integrated America in the 20th century were in the Democratic Party. The fact is that it was Franklin Delano Roosevelt who gave hope to a nation that was in despair and could have slid into dictatorship. And the fact is every Republican has much to learn from studying what the Democrats did right."

Wow!

Now, Glenn also played audio of Romney saying he was a progressive in the early 90s.

ROMNEY: "I think the old, you know, standby definitions of who votes for which party have been blown away in this campaign. I think people recognize that I'm not a partisan Republican, that I'm someone who is moderate and that my views are progressive and that I'm going to go to work for our seniors citizens..."

"(Romney's) not my guy because he's also a progressive. But I think he's more of a progressive lite," Glenn said.

*Note, at the beginning of this clip Glenn incorrectly states that Jenny Beth Martin was a member Tea Party Express. She is a member of Tea Party Patriots.

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.
