Glenn on Glenn: You are such an egomaniac!

This morning on radio Glenn talked about his church experience in Utah yesterday, a cautionary tale about listening when God speaks. Glenn believed he was being led to do something a bit unusual, but resisted to urge, referring to himself as an ‘egomaniac’ if he were to follow through. What was the task and what happened?

Sunday morning, Glenn was ready to walk out there door when he felt a prompting to bring a suitcase he has with a predecessor to the Emancipation Proclamation, Joseph Smith’s pocket watch, and Walt Disney’s Disneyland Prospectus.

“I'm getting ready to go to church and I think, ‘Bring the suitcase because the Lincoln thing should be shared.’ And I immediately think, what kind of egomaniac are you?” Glenn said. “And so I rejected it immediately. And then I thought about it again and I thought, ‘What?’ An egomaniac. What am I going to ‑‑ I'm not going to say anything. I completely dismiss it,”

“As I'm getting ready to walk out, that suitcase is there, security is still at the house and that suitcase is still there and I look at it and I think, just put it in the car and lock it in the car. And I'm thinking, well, that's even, that's more ridiculous. It's safer here at the house; why would it ‑‑ so anyway, I reject it.”

But when Glenn got to church, the Bishop came up asked asked him to be the special guest speaker for the service. Glenn quickly tried to text his security team to see if they could get the suitcase so he could talk about it, but no one could get it in time.

Without the suitcase, Glenn started to write a short little speech. However, the person who was supposed to speak in front of him ended up saying everything he wrote down.

"I just start writing a little speech. Well, somebody gets up before me and starts talking, and he fills the whole space. But here's what happened: He fills the space and I point to Tania. As he's saying stuff, I point to Tania and I'm like, look what he's saying. I just wrote that down. I was going to say that. He said something else and I pointed to Tania and I'm like, 'I was going to say that.'" Glenn said.

"Everything that he was saying I was going to cover. It ends up, I didn't speak. They ran out of time. So I didn't speak," he said.

"I go home. I wrote a note to the bishop and I said, I've learned an important lesson here, of arrogance and obedience. And it's the opposite lesson I thought I was going to learn," Glenn explained. "I'm arrogant because my mind is not God's mind. I have no idea. I heard it twice ‑‑ I actually heard it three times: Go put that in the car. And I didn't do it. Arrogance and obedience."

But why is this lesson so important now? Glenn said we're approaching what he believes are "emergency times" when you'll hear messages from Him and you'll need to act because others are depending on you.

"Here's the thing, however: I believe we're entering an emergency time. I believe we're headed for really tough times and this is nothing new coming from me, but I believe we're headed for tough times, and just like your dad, if the house is on fire, your dad will say to you, 'Go run and go get the neighbor.' He doesn't want you to say, 'Well, why? What is the neighbor going to do?' Go get the neighbor! Dad knows what he's doing to put the fire out. The kids don't necessarily understand that. Dad has no time for us to here it. 'Well, son, here's what I'm going to...' 'Go get the damn neighbor!' Is what Dad is saying. Go pick that up and put it in your car.' 'But Dad, why are we going to ‑‑ they're not going to ask me to...' 'Go pick it up and put it in your car.'"

"There's going to come a time when things make absolutely no sense to you at all. Do it. Because there is someone else that is depending on you doing it. And the other lesson is, he had somebody else deliver the message that he told me to deliver. There's somebody else. He's not going to be frustrated. Somebody else will do it. Don't be the one that dropped the ball," Glenn said.

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.
