Breaking News: Ann Romney… likes to ride horses

Breaking News: Ann Romney… likes to ride horses.

This truly groundbreaking piece of journalism comes courtesy of the hard-hitting Los Angeles Times. The article, “Ann Romney and Dressage: A Pricey Private World,” exposes Ann Romney’s “passionate engagement in dressage, a sport she believes helps her deal with multiple sclerosis.”

It should come as a relief that the newspaper was able to unearth such a game-changing story before the November elections. After all, we wouldn’t want a horseback riding First Lady.

The Times’ story is based on testimony from a 2010 lawsuit regarding an “expensive horse she sold that may or may not have been afflicted with a condition that made him unrideable.” The lawsuit was later dropped.

Even more damning, the story goes on to discuss insurance documents that reveal the Romney’s spent a whopping $7,800 from November 2006 to November 2007 to insure five horses. Perish the thought.

“Did she get the $7,800 from some sort of government bailout,” Glenn asked. “Did she get that money through some sort of a green program?”

“No,” Stu responded. “Just she -- but she should have been paying more taxes which would have meant she had less than $7,000 over to left to live on the year which means she couldn't have bought the horses. Do the math, people.”

“By the way, apparently according to the L.A. Times these horses are worth more than $50,000 to $138,000, but she self-insures for the rest of the value of the horses,” Glenn added.

Once again, the media has given us yet another story condemning the rich. Ignore the fact that the Romney’s, unlike the government, are making purchases and buying services with their own money, not gambling with taxpayer dollars.

“Look at that you know what's amazing to me. Barack Obama is coming after these people like Bain Capital, and all these investors for what,” Glenn asked. “For going in and buying companies and trying to turn them around, and trying to expand the business. That's their crime? Trying to go in and make the business actually work?”

“So these businesses grow, and grow in size. That's what Bain Capital does. Hopefully they'll be able to grow the companies. So those companies can pay Bain Capital back. And they do all of that with private money. This is unlike Barack Obama. Who invests in private companies in hopes that those companies will take off and be able to pay that money back to the American people. So one is making a bet with their own money. The other is making a bet with your money.”

“Now you put it into perspective,” Glenn said. “This is how desperate these guys are.”

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.
