WH spokesperson stumped: Where was Obama on night of Benghazi attack?

It’s a relatively simple question: where was President Obama on the night of the Benghazi attacks? No one seems to know. Yesterday White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer was grilled about the location of the President that night and his pathetic response indicates the President was probably not where he should have been.

"They are changing the story. Every time I hear the White House, they are changing the story, and no one is tracking the story.

During a contentious back and forth with Chris Wallace, Pfeiffer refused to say where President Obama was during the attack on the Benghazi consulate.

WALLACE: But with due respect, you didn't answer my question: What did the president do that night?

PFEIFFER: He was kept ‑‑ he was in constant touch that night with his national security team and he kept up with the events as they were happening.

WALLACE: Well, you say his national security team. He didn't talk to the Secretary of State except for the one time when the first attack was over. He didn't talk to the Secretary of Defense. He didn't talk to the chairman of the joint chiefs. Who was he talking to?

PFEIFFER: He was talking to his national ‑‑ his national security staff, his National Security Council or the people who keep him up to date about it on these things as they happen.

WALLACE: Was he in the situation room?

PFEIFFER: He was kept up to date throughout the situation room.

"This is different than what he said before.  What he said before was that the president wasn't involved, he didn't need to be involved," Glenn said.

Glenn explained that he believes that President Obama was kept out of the loop so he wouldn't be a witness to a situation that involved running guns to the rebels in Syria.

"Why isn't the president in the situation room when he's upstairs going to sleepy sleep? Why did they make it such a point? Why would Leon Panetta come out and say what he said during an election, that the president, there was no phone calls, there was no e‑mails, there was no phone calls, no contact. No contact with anyone in the White House all night long. Why? Why? To keep him clean of the real crime," Glenn said. "Even the death of the ambassador, I am sorry to say, is not the real crime. The one they are trying to cover up is not the ambassador's death. It is running guns to the Muslim Brotherhood. Period. And the longer you spend trying to figure out why they're trying to do these things, the longer you spend not tying it to what was going on in that annex in the first place, the farther away from the truth you get."

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.
