What is the message that can unite all Americans?

On Tuesday's Glenn Beck Program, Glenn made an argument that he has made many times before: history is repeating itself. This time, however, Glenn looked at history from a religious perspective. In Europe, we have already seen a movement toward the eradication of religion from society, and it is safe to say the global consequences of such a movement would be dire.

“We must unite now. History is beginning to repeat itself," Glenn said. "In Europe, there is a very strong radical movement towards erasing all religion."

In the years leading up to World War II, a similar movement existed because the state attempted to compete with religion for "moral authority." In Russia, Stalin closed 40,000 Christian churches. In Germany, Hitler turned National Socialism into a national substitute to religion.

As a society, we may not yet have reached such an extreme, but Glenn sees us facing very similar problems if nothing is done to thwart attacks on religion.

“God is being driven out of the public square. God is openly mocked and hedonism and darkness are being embraced,” Glenn explained. “A society that continues to accept and applaud wrongdoing will destroy itself from within, it must. It becomes a virus to nature’s laws."

In light of the ongoing immigration debate and the countless scandals plaguing the United States, it is easy to be discouraged. Instead of fixing the problems, Glenn explained that we are simply redefining them "to make ourselves feel better." We are watching our culture, history, and customs change right before our eyes.

But there is hope.

"Citizenry armed with truth does not slide into slavery," Glenn said. "Arm yourself with the truth and stand with confidence, because the truth lives here."

Glenn turned to David Barton, Rabbi Daniel Lappin, and Pastor Ken Hutcherson to brainstorm  ideas for a cohesive message all Americans can unify around and use to fight back against those who are trying to devalue our culture.

David Barton suggested six principles from the time of the nation’s founding:

  1. There is a God
  2. God gives rights
  3. Government exists to protect the rights that God gives
  4. There is a moral law
  5. Below the moral law, people get to govern
  6. If the government doesn’t do those five things, the people have the right to a new government

Pastor Hutcherson, meanwhile, reminded America that we have overcome far worst in the past. "God and I are on fire, and I’m just excited about what’s going to happen," he said. "Because the greatest thing in all the world is what I believe many of the people that overcame when it didn’t look like there was any way to overcome: enemy on the right, enemy on the left, enemy in the front, enemy in the back, and you know, what did you do? You just turn and around and look, says, 'We got ’em where we want ’em. Let’s get ’em.'"

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.
