Your food and gas prices are rising but everything is totally (not) fine

President Obama wants you to think that the rising costs of gas and food are no big deal. He wants you to think that everything is fine, and if you give him four more years he'll finally be able to deliver on the whole hope and change thing. But saying something doesn't make it come true, no matter how much hope President Obama says he has.

"I will tell you, though, that the tide has changed in the last two weeks and Romney has all of the momentum, and we're three weeks away. As I said last night and I said yesterday on the radio program, what's happening is the president's lies are not being believed anymore," Glenn explained.

"Why aren't they being believed? Because if you've stopped at a gas station, you know," he continued. "Are you doing well? Do you feel like things are on the right track?"

Glenn said that in the past debate Obama tried to imply that high gas prices were a sign of a recovering economy.

"The reason why Romney is winning is because the president looks completely out of touch. He thinks he's a Jedi. He really does. He's like, 'Your gas prices are good.' My gas prices aren't good. 'No, let me try it again. Look at my hand. Your gas prices are good.' The Jedi trick doesn't work. And when you're paying that for gasoline and then you go in ‑‑ that's 158% increase since he got into office."

"But that's not all. We're going to get into this later, but let me just run down this list. This is important for the American people to know. Eggs are up 73%. Coffee is up 90. Peanut butter up 40. Milk 25%. White bread 39%. Spaghetti, macaroni is up 44%. Orange juice 46. Apple juice 43. Wine up 60. Electricity up 42%. Beef steak up 41. Ground beef up 61%. Margarine up 143%. Everybody knows. You may not know why. People may not be able to explain QE infinity. People may not even know what that is. You may not even know what that is, but you know your ground beef is up 61%. You know that your coffee is up 90%. You know when you go to the gas station and you get gas it's up 158%. You may not know the cause of it, but you certainly don't connect with somebody who says, 'There's no problem here. No, we're just on the verge ‑‑ what we're going to do is more of what we've just done.' You know that doesn't work. Not a good idea. Right? And that's what's happening."

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.
