Matt Damon’s new socialist thriller

The synopsis online explains that Elysium is set in 2159 and "two classes of people exist: the very wealthy... and the rest.” Can Matt Damon not only save his life, but ‘bring equality to these polarized worlds’? Anyone able to stomach the socialist propaganda will find out!

"The Hollywood Reporter called it a politically charged speculative fiction. Variety said it's one of the, quote, more openly socialist political agendas of any Hollywood movie in memory. Beating the drum loudly not just for universal health care, but for open borders, unconditional amnesty and the abolition of class distinctions as well. And the director, Neill Blomkamp, and Matt Damon say, what do you mean? No, that didn't -- we never even thought of that. Really?" Pat said.

"When Hollywood is saying this is the most socialist of any movie we've ever seen..." Glenn said with a laugh.

"I don't want to see the propaganda. It looks fun. I enjoy sci-fi. I actually like Matt Damon movies usually and this looked really fun, but then -- you could tell in the trailer it's probably got some political agenda to it," he added.

Stu said the film focuses on a future where the wealthy and privileged live above the planet Earth with amazing healthcare, beautiful homes, and every form of luxury. Back on Earth, the rest of the population is left wallowing in hellish conditions. Once blue collar everyman Matt Damon is caught in an accident and given only a few days to live, he decides to raid the 1%'s Elysium in order to get life saving healthcare.

Class warfare over access to healthcare? The trailer certainly looks like an Occupy Wall Street story with a sci-fi twist.

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.
