Glenn explains international Tea Party movement on radio

Glenn returned from his whirlwind European trip overseas this morning and for the first time spoke to the audience about what he was doing over there. He opened the show by discussing his meeting with leaders in a growing international Tea Party coalition.

"But on Friday in the midst of everything else that was going on, I called a conference along with FreedomWorks to bring people from all over Europe together and talk to them about a global Tea Party. I met with people from Serbia and Georgia and Italy and London and Berlin," Glenn said, "from all over Europe."

Glenn said there were about 25-30 people in total that attended the conference.

" What I was shocked at is the number of people that would come without an agenda. We called them two weeks ago and said, I am going to the Vatican. I'll be in Rome and I want you to -- I want to meet with you and the guys from Serbia, they had maxed their credit card out to be able to come to this meeting. They were broke, but they wanted people to hear what was going on in Serbia. The guy from Georgia came and said, 'The Americans are teaching us about communism. We're trying to hold our own here and trying to fight communism and your representatives are teaching us about communism! We need help.' And as I listen to all of them and what was going on in their countries, the guy from Milan had the best statement. It is the Italian Tea Party, because, he said, 'The reason why we have the Italian Tea Party and we have the tea pot as our logo is because we looked at something in our history that would explain small government.' He said, 'We have nothing. Look at us. We're Caesar to Mussolini. We don't have this in our history. There is no icon for us to hearken back to and say restore.'"

"When I stood up, I was very nervous and I told them, I said, 'Look, I'm nervous about talking to you because it always ends the same way in Europe, because you don't have a small government example.' I said, 'But time is running out and we have got to stand together and help each other and if the left is global, we must, too, be global. We must have some framework and organization for a global movement'."

Glenn said he was shocked when he told the people that faith and God had to be the answer and no one disagreed or thought "Here comes the crazy God stuff".

"I was shocked to see how many people supported this idea that it will end the way the French Revolution ended if we don't interject God and make sure we base it on something real," 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.
