Obama v. Rubio v. Paul

Glenn took a look at the stark differences between the Obama speech and the two responses offered by Republicans Marco Rubio and Rand Paul. Obama presents his typical government will fix everything solution, while Rubio and Paul offer a very different path.

"On the economy we know what our fearless leader (President Obama) is saying: Corporate profits have rocketed to all‑time highs, people haven't paid their fair share, and we can't cut our way to prosperity and we have to have broad‑based economic growth, a balanced approach and with spending cuts and revenue with everybody doing their fair share," Glenn said.

"So in other words, we've already raised taxes on the wealthiest but they are still not paying their fair share. We've already raised them; still not enough."

"Here's what Rubio said last night: 'Unfortunately our economy actually shrank during the last three months of 2012, but if we can get the economy to grow at 4% a year, we could create millions of middle class jobs and it would reduce our deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade. Tax increases can't do this. Raising taxes won't create private sector jobs and there's no realistic tax increase that could lower our deficits by almost $4 trillion. That's why I hope the president will abandon his obsession with raising taxes and instead work with us to achieve real growth in our economy.'"

"That's Rubio. Pretty good."

As for Rand Paul: "With my five-year budget, millions of jobs would be created by cutting the corporate income tax in half, by creating a flat personal income tax of 17%, and by cutting the regulations that are strangling American businesses."

Glenn liked Paul's claim to make changes within five years as most ten year plans can fail when a new administration comes into power.

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.
