Obama’s pick for #2 CIA spot also into hosting erotic book readings

Over the last couple weeks, stories have emerged about questionable behavior at Hillary Clinton’s State Department, the FBI, the Secret Service, and the CIA to name a few. From sexual escapades to incompetence, there seems to be a troubling culture shift occurring at some of the nation’s top security and intelligence agencies.

“Look at the woman who's been put in the number two position at the CIA,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I find this horrifying. This is the president's choice for the number two spot. She used to host an erotica night at her bookstore.”

TheBlaze reported:

On Wednesday, the CIA announced that Deputy Director Michael Morell would be replaced by White House lawyer Avril Haines. It didn’t take long for media outlets to poke around and find some intriguing elements from Haines’ past. Perhaps the most odd tidbit is the notion that she once read sexy novels aloud at a bookstore she co-owned years ago. These readings would take place on designated “erotica nights.”

“We've all been there. Come on. Who's casting stones here,” Stu joked.

“I usually wait for S&M night,” Pat quipped.

“I know,” Glenn said. “[Haynes] nominated to the number two role of the CIA, worked at the White House, the council's office, where she approved the covert actions and served as a liaison between the president and the CIA. She owned and operated Adrienne's Book Cafe at Fell's Point. She featured erotica nights, including dinner and a series of readings by guests of published works.”

According to The Baltimore Sun, Haynes was candid about the popularity of the sex-themed book reading. At first she wasn't sold on the idea of hosting erotica readings, but she said she once viewed the themes as pornographic in nature, but after reading some of these stories out loud, her views began to change. “Erotica,” Haynes told the Sun, “has become more prevalent because people are trying to have sex without sex. It offers spontaneity, twists and turns and it affects everyone.”

“The culture has changed. We are fundamentally being transformed,” Glenn said. “If you want to look into history, the worst scenes in American, in global history is always when you… mix the godless alongside with the militant, alongside with the Marxist, alongside with the perverse, you've got a bad, bad mixture.”

“You don't have to believe what I believe, but you are self-disciplined, so you have regulatory control over yourself and not trying to control others,” he continued. “These people want control over others. So when you look at the FBI and you ask when did it happen, well, I would stop trusting pretty much all these people.”

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.
