How many times can Obama lie in one speech?

In Obama's weekly address to the nation, the President managed to pack in quite a few whoppers into just a few short minutes. Did he really bailout GM? And has he ever bet on American ingenuity? Glenn gives his own thoughts on radio this morning.

In the address, Obama said, "Just a few years ago, the auto industry wasn't just struggling. It was flat‑lining. GM and Chrysler were on the verge of collapse. Suppliers and distributors were at risk of going under. More than a million jobs across the country were on the line. And not just auto jobs but the jobs of teachers, small business owners, and everyone in communities that deny on this great American industry. But we refuse to throw in the towel and do nothing.  We refuse to let Detroit go bankrupt."

"He didn't bail out GM.  George Bush bailed out GM.  And I remember because I was against the bailout.  So every time that Barack Obama is saying he bailed out GM, he's lying to you.  It was George Bush that did it," Glenn said.

"It's not like nobody was taking action.  George Bush, he was already down there with his feet in the mud throwing all the dirt out of the hole, digging it.  And then you got in.  And George Bush, I'm convinced George Bush would have kept digging that hole as well," he added.

The President continued, "We bet on American workers and American ingenuity, and three years later, that bet is paying off in a big way."

"If you would have bet on American ingenuity, you also wouldn't have dictated it was the Chevy Volt and not the hydrogen car.  I mean, they mothballed the hydrogen car.  That was one of the biggest problems that I had with GM," Glenn said.

Obama also claimed that GM was number one in the auto industry, also untrue. Toyota, the Japanese auto company, had long been number one but was battered by recalls and a tsunami that hit Japan allowing GM to claim the top position in 2011. Toyota has since retaken it's dominant spot in the auto-industry.

 

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.
