Glenn rips Rubio’s ridiculous speech

Marco Rubio has been generally good up until this disaster amnesty bill, but he just keeps on selling it to the American public. Today Glenn ripped apart his demeaning speech and warned Rubio to ‘get away’ from radical leftists or we’ll send you away in the next election.

Glenn had flown to Utah and burned the midnight oil working on Man in the Moon, so he was in a particularly grumpy and brutally honest mood when he set his sights on Rubio's remarks.

In his speech, Rubio said:

This isn’t about winning points from the establishment or the mainstream media either. No matter how consistent I have been in focusing on the border security aspects of reform, whenever I have spoken about the need to improve this part of the legislation, the beltway media has accused me of trying to undermine or walk away from the reform.

This isn’t about becoming a Washington dealmaker. Truthfully, it would have been far easier to just sit back, vote against any proposal and give speeches about how I would have done things differently.

And finally, this most certainly isn’t about gaining support for future office. Many conservative commentators and leaders who I deeply respect, and who I agree with on practically every other issue, are disappointed about my involvement in this debate.

I got involved in this issue for one simple reason: I ran for office to try and fix things that are hurting this special country of ours. And in the end, that is what this is about for me – trying to fix a serious problem that faces America.

The proposal before the Senate is by no means perfect. Like any proposal that comes before the Democrat-controlled Senate, it has flaws.

But it also has important reforms conservatives have been trying to get for years. It changes our legal immigration system from a predominantly family-based system of chain migration to a more merit-based system focused on job skills.

"Here's the deal," Glenn said. "You get to Washington, you're a senator, and everybody who's in the power corridor says, 'Look, you know how ‑‑ you know how this works, and we can make this happen. This TEA Party thing, they're too far over. And Marco, we appreciate what you're doing with those guys and that's really cute and everything, and we've got that whole, you know, budget thing. Boy, we are so in your corner on that one. But we need you to work ‑‑ we need you to work together because, listen, here are the numbers. Here are the numbers. This is what's going to happen. If you don't give the Hispanics the free everything and create a special class, well, you're not going to ‑‑ you're not going to win the persistency because there's not going to be a GOP. And listen, we can reach across the aisle and you can look like the grand deal‑maker here. And we at the GOP power plant here, you're the candidate. You're the one. Help us on this.'"

"And I can tell you right now that members of the media, media institutions, the GOP, all, all of them have said in their own time, in their own way to Marco Rubio, 'Listen, you need this. Otherwise the GOP is over. You've got to do this for the GOP. And you know what? You do this and you're going to be ‑‑ you're going to be the superstar. You're going to be the next president of the United States, Marco.'"

Glenn warned Marco Rubio that he has teamed up with progressives in both parties in order to pass legislation that ultimately betrays conservative values.

"Marco, you are dealing with radicals, revolutionaries, and communists! Have you seen what they've done to the rest of the country? How can you possibly sit in the same room with those people? You are becoming those people! You are becoming a progressive Republican! Get away! Get away. Otherwise, brother, we're going to have to send you away," Glenn said.

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.
