Glenn: If you violate an amendment in the Constitution, you are violating my civil rights

Why did Glenn decide to drop everything and go to Washington DC in the middle of the week? He went to stand with the 70 men and women in Congress who were trying to stand up for the Constitution and the rights of the American people and to deliver a message of Civil Rights to those who came to stand with him at the steps of the Capitol Building.

"They are not threatened by the Democrats. They were threatened by the Republicans," Glenn said of the Congressmen opposing the Immigration Bill.

"These guys are really life, fortune and sacred honor. They really are risking it all. They know they don't have a career left. The GOP is going to hammer the leaders," he said.

Glenn explained that part of the reason he went to DC was to show his support for those 70 and to raise awareness of what they were trying to do so that they aren't abandoned and punished for standing for their principles.

Glenn also went into more detail about his speech and the message of Civil Rights he took to Washington DC.

"We have to start thinking differently. The civil rights movement is not about blacks in the 1960s. That was just one of the latest civil rights movements. The civil rights movements started with Moses," he said.

Glenn explained that Civil Rights wasn't just in the 1960s with blacks fighting for equal rights, but any time one group was fighting for equal rights and fleeing persecution. He pointed to the Pilgrims who fled England for religious freedom and the Jews who escaped Israel as examples of groups who were fighting for equal rights.

Today, Glenn sees a continuation of the civil rights movement going on in America. The government is trampling on the Constitution and every time one of the amendments is violated it means your civil rights are being violated.

"Each one of those scandals boils down to one of the amendments in the constitution has been violated. If you violate an amendment in the constitution, you are violating my civil right, and we have to start moving that way," he said.

"Your civil rights are being violated. It is not about scandals. It's not about scandals. It's about the violation of civil rights. Start thinking that way, moving that way."

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.
