Glenn: Independence Museum has "spiraled out of control"

Things are starting to heat up in Salt Lake City - and it's not just the stifling 100+ degree weather. Yesterday was load in day for the Independence Museum, and more and more items continue to pour in!

"So yesterday Stu was with me in the library. David Barton and I are putting together a library and we've put together a museum, and the museum has spiraled out of control just a tad in a good way. I think last week we had $35 million worth of rare collectibles that are just, you just can't believe that they're sitting there and you're looking at them. Some things that we didn't even know were in existence," Glenn said.

Yesterday, Stu was with Glenn as he was sorting through what would actually be displayed at the Museum. Not only were incredible things going on display, but amazing artifacts that would be prominently showcased anywhere else were being put away to make room.

"This is how great this exhibit is. We rejected a piece of the original Star‑Spangled Banner," Glenn said.

But Glenn did end up getting a Pilgrim hat which will be on display, as well as a gun from that same era.

Stu also saw some incredible things, including a newspaper marking the end of the Civil War.

"I spent probably ten or 15 minutes on this one cover of a newspaper that was out there. It was a newspaper marking the end of the Civil War. So think of what a big deal that is. And the newspaper, it's cut into, like, these little tiny columns. The front page looked like a classified ad," Stu said.

"Really small columns," Stu continued. "They didn't change the format. It was just the end of the Civil War. And so they have ‑‑ first of all, it's the end of the Civil War, the first three columns are: New books coming out this week. That's what they led with. And then they have this big centerpiece of where it says, you know, Lee surrenders, peace finally, you know, blah‑blah. And it kind of outlines what happens."

"At the end ‑‑ I thought this was interesting ‑‑ is they said they released the entire army was free to go, they took the canons and whatever, but they let ‑‑ this is how important the Second Amendment was: They let all the Confederate soldiers keep their sidearms. It says that in the story. I mean, what an amazing thing to think now we're like you're not ‑‑ as a citizen, not someone who started a revolution and was fighting actively against the government. We let those guys keep their weapons."

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.
