Obama passes Carter as 'worst president ever' with kidnapping in Egypt

This morning, Glenn told listeners that more Americans have been kidnapped in Egypt. "So, Barack Obama now has completed the I want to be greater than Jimmy Carter circle," Glenn said.

TheBlaze.com reports:

The family of a Boston pastor abducted in Egypt is appealing to his captor to release the 61-year-old man, saying he is a diabetic and the family fears for his health.

The son of Rev. Michel Louis told The Associated Press on Saturday that his father was on a church group trip to retrace Jesus’ steps through the Holy Land when he was abducted.

Along with him, a 39-year-old Boston woman named Lisa Alphonse and a tour guide were kidnapped Friday when an Egyptian Bedouin stopped their bus on a road linking Cairo to Mount Sinai.

This is the third time this year that American tourists have been kidnapped in the Sinai Peninsula - a concerning trend that Glenn warned of back with the Arab Spring first began. Glenn warned his TV viewers and radio listeners that as thing heated up in the Middle East Americans would increasingly become targets in the region.

The Egyptian revolution is on course to be an exact replica of what happened in Iran in the 1970’s. Glenn pointed out all of the similarities between the two revolutions. The president coming out and praising the uprising, followed by a radical Islamist dictator – in Iran it was the Ayatollah Khomeini, this time we have Mursi in Egypt. The Secretary of State [Hilary Clinton] was there over the weekend, where she was being heckled. And now, American Christians have been kidnapped in Egypt, so we have a hostage crisis.

“For all of those people who pined for 1979… we’re there,” Pat said. “Congratulations.”

Of course, Glenn couldn’t help but point out, yet again, how wrong his critics were at the start of the uprising in Egypt.

“Bill Krystol, you’re a genius. You are just so hope and changey, and we got it, another hit coming from the ‘Barack Obama collection of classics,’ going way back to 1979, another American hostage crisis.” Glenn said sarcastically in his ‘top-40 radio voice.’

So there you have it, another piece of history repeats itself under President Obama. Perhaps we’ll continue this trend and get a repeat of the Reagan Era? One can only hope.

**Update: TheBlaze.com is now being reported that the two Americans and the Egyptian tour guide have been released.**

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.
