Duct Tape Warning: Guess who is getting an Obamacare exemption

Glenn was having a really, really tough time staying calm during the radio show today. You see, Glenn’s doctors have told him he needs to take it easy, don’t stress out, maybe try not to get so excited over the small stuff…or probably more importantly the big stuff. But it’s hard to remain calm when you read headlines like: Congress Gets ObamaCare Waiver.

“For those of you who are trying to keep your blood pressure under control, this may not be the day to pay attention to the news at all, but we're going to stay calm and happy and remember the teachings of all of the great leaders of the past that have been able to look adversity in the eye and smile. Smile, even when the clouds are in the sky. Just smile,” Glenn said.

According to FOX News:

In a ruling issued on Wednesday, U.S. lawmakers and their staffs will continue to receive a federal contribution toward the health insurance that they must purchase through soon-to-open exchanges created by President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law.

The decision by the Office of Personnel Management, with Obama's blessing, will prevent the largely unintended loss of healthcare benefits for 535 members of the Senate and House of Representatives and thousands of Capitol Hill staff.

When Congress passed the health reform law known as Obamacare in 2010, an amendment required that lawmakers and their staff members purchase health insurance through the online exchanges that the law created. They would lose generous coverage under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.

That’s just a tad bit infuriating.

“There's something, I don't know, deep, deep, deep inside of me that makes me care about a bunch of weasels sorry about a group of individuals who are just like us and they care so deeply about our country, that could go to Washington and by hook and by crook and through closed door backroom deals jam something down our throats that we don't want and then in the last hour make a special exception because they can't function while spending our money out of control,” Glenn said.

“I'm telling you right now, these people are out of control and they have to be stopped. And if you if they raise the debt ceiling, if this country can't find its way to each other, good, decent Americans of all walks of life, of all color, of all creed, of all parties, if we can't see the insanity, if we can't see the corruption and if we can't see them for what they claim to be, their lordships and ladies and we can't say "We'll fund every bit of this government, we'll fund every last dime of this government, but we will not (loss of audio) so mired in regulation that you had to add extra people just to keep you in check with the law because of these mindless regulations, they can't make it work, but you have to or you're fined or you go to jail. If we can't find our way to each other and say, "I'm not funding that, I'm not funding that, and I'm not buying into your bullcrap anymore." If you can't find your way into a 9/12 project, if you can't find your way into a TEA Party, if you can't find your way into the democratic headquarters, as a good Democrat and say, "I've had enough of this," if you can't do it, we're done. We're done.”

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.
