Bill Clinton flip-flops on DOMA

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act, it became clear that many on the left would be quick to forget under what administration the law was passed. President Bill Clinton signed DOMA into law in September 2996 with huge support in both the House and Senate. But President Clinton sought to distance himself from the law yesterday – taking to Twitter to praise the Supreme Court and those who fought “tirelessly” from equality.

The former president and his wife also took to the Clinton Foundation website to expound upon their support.

“Finally we're able to get rid of this evil, evil law, the one I signed into law back in 1996,” Pat quipped. “How do you make that case?”

“Because they made the case in the 1960s,” Glenn responded. “This is exactly what they did in the 1960s. They stood against Civil Rights and then once it became popular, they embraced it and said, ‘See, we were the ones doing it. We were the ones doing it.’ And here, same thing.”

Back in March, President Clinton wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post, “It’s time to overturn DOMA,” explaining that the law was passed during a “very different time” when no state recognized same-sex marriage.

“He wrote an interesting op ed I thought, though, trying to explain this,” Stu said. “And I don't know just how much of this is him covering himself or how much of this is true, but I thought it was interesting as far as progressivism goes is his point was he signed the Defense of Marriage Act because they could have gone a lot further back then because gay marriage was so unpopular. So if he didn't do that, they would have done something worse. So he took that half measure.”

“Oh, what a lying sack of crap,” Glenn said. “The guy was a triangulater. That's all he was. That's all he was and now he's just trying to save his image.”

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.
