More media shame: scant coverage of Fast & Furious scandal

You'd hardly know it by watching the mainstream media coverage yesterday but there was a hearing yesterday on the Fast & Furious scandal. Attorney General Eric Holder arrogantly shrugged off criticism of his program to smuggle guns across the border - at least one of the guns ended up being used in the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

Glenn and Pat started the radio show this morning playing some astonishing audio of Holder berating a Congressman who made a presentation of some of the statements Holder has made on the "Fast & Furious" scandal.

The Blaze reports:

Holder was on Capitol Hill to testify in an ongoing congressional probe into the failed Operation Fast and Furious, in which weapons sold to Mexican drug cartels were not tracked, resulting in the deaths of hundreds, including a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

According to National Review Online, Holder was responding to a “grandstanding presentation” by Republican Congressman Raul Labrador that “cobbled together testimony from Holder going back ten years to establish a ‘pattern’ of Holder saying, in effect, ‘I don’t know’ in testimony.”

“There’s a whole bunch of things that I could say about what you just did, maybe this is the way you do things in Idaho or wherever you’re from,” Holder said. “But understand something — I‘m proud of the work that I’ve done as attorney general of the United States, and looked at fairly, I think that I’ve done a pretty good job.”

"These two are having an elite-off and they're both using their power," Glenn said.

"Now, I personally believe the Congressman was right. Eric Holder is corrupt. This Department of Justice is out of control. There's no way he didn't know about Fast and Furious."

"If there's any sanity at the end of this administration, this will go down as the most corrupt administration in the history of the United States and that's saying something. And the reason why is because they control the DOJ," Glenn added.

"You have to ask yourself, What kind of damage is this guy doing to our FBI, to our justice system? What kind of damage is a guy who is corrupt, who's running guns on the border, who doesn't pay any attention at all to the Black Panthers, who doesn't believe that there's such a thing called Islamic extremism," he said.

Glenn recalled a passage from Ezekiel that affected him years ago.

But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.'

"This is why I do what I do, because I take that one promise to me seriously. Let me promise something to people like Eric Holder. You will be held responsible for all those who lose their freedom. When man comes to trial in the courts, you will be held responsible for what you do and what you do not do right now. I hope I'm in line behind you, my friend, because I think it's going to be pretty darn easy to look good after the people in this administration. I'm not your judge, but I hope to testify against you," 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.
