Unless We Act We Will Not Survive Another Summer of '68

Glenn has predicted several times that civil unrest is going to come to a boiling point as the economy worsens and more people hit the streets in protests. OWS have promised a repeat of the violent 'Summer of 68' this coming year and Glenn believes they will make good on that promise.

But can America withstand a huge wave of riots and protests?

Not likely!

"Several organizations that are in bed with Occupy Wall Street came out and said recreate 1968. They are actually calling people to Chicago and saying we want you to recreate 1968," Glenn said.

"Let's just remember what happened in 1968. This is the only thing that is left on the board that we have really predicted that is the perfect storm."

"Let's look at the assassinations of the 1960s. Start with JFK. Who assassinated JFK? It was Lee Harvey Oswald. What people don't really understand about Lee Harvey Oswald or they sweep under the carpet is that this guy had been traveling to the Soviet Union. Now, who traveled to the Soviet Union back in the 1960s?"

"They swept it under the rug that this guy was a Marxist, an absolute out‑and‑out Marxist. So assassination from a Marxist."

"Now, who killed Malcolm X? Malcolm X was killed by the Nation of Islam."

"Who killed RFK? RFK was killed by Sirhan Sirhan. Who was he? He was a Palestinian that came from Jordan who was upset about the negotiations and everything that was going on with Israel and American support of Israel."

"Who killed MLK? Racists."

"Three out of the four were killed by the people who are currently stirring up trouble now and they're asking for recreate 1968. Just a quick reminder of 1968: Martin Luther King was killed April 4th, 1968. That started off the Chicago riots. Chicago riots, and we have it on film, the Chicago riots were looking, they had people that were rioting and they were stirred up, absolutely every reason to be pissed if Martin Luther King were killed. However, the riots were not started by the average person. The riots were, we're going to take it. You owe us these shoes or this television set for what you did to Martin Luther King. That's insanity. The police stayed out of it because the police let it go for a while because they just didn't want to make things worse. And it's Chicago."

"Then RFK was killed by Sirhan Sirhan, the Palestinian, on June 6, 1968. Then you had the convention, the DNC convention in August of 1968. Now, who in their right mind, besides George Soros, wants to recreate 1968? Can you imagine what that year was like for our parents? I called my dad and I said, Dad, you remember all that? He said, of course I remember all of that. I said, how did you feel? He said, I didn't feel like we feel now because I didn't ‑‑ we didn't feel like those radicals were inside the government and everywhere. He said, I was in Seattle. And he said, we didn't have all of this. And he said, so it was kind of isolated. All that stuff was kind of on the other side of the country and down south and, he said, we didn't have it in the Pacific Northwest. And he said, so we ‑‑ we kind of felt like we would win, you know, that the goodness would win all of these assassinations and everything else, that our society would hold together."

"I contend that unless we do things intentionally now to tie our society together, we will not weather another 1968," Glenn said.

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.
