DENIAL: Colorado Dem blames recall loss on voter suppression

In the ultimate display of denial, recalled Democratic Colorado State Senator Angela Giron blamed her loss on “voter suppression” during an appearance on CNN yesterday. Earlier this week, Colorado residents voted to recall Giron and Democratic Senate President John Morse over a number of gun control laws they pushed through the State Legislature.

GIRON: We know what really happened here. Yes, we had the strong NRA and you have a person like Mr. Head, but what this story is really about, it’s about voter suppression. When Colorado has voted by mail, 70% of Coloradoans vote by mail. And we didn't have access to that mail ballot.

BROOKE BALDWIN: Okay, forgive me but I'm going to cut you off right there because if we talk voter suppression, I've read reports of lack of popularity on your behalf. Let's just not go there. Let's get to the meat of the story which is this gun control stance that they…

GIRON: That is the meat of it.

“That is so great,” Pat said. “‘Let's not go there. I've got reports of how unpopular you are. Can we not blame this on voter suppression?’ Because 5/6t of the money spent in this race was spent by [Giron, Morse] and their allies, the mayors against guns group. It's amazing.”

The CNN anchor went on to remind Giron that nearly $3.5 million dollars was poured into her campaign efforts, including at $350,000 personal donation from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, had promised to keep Giron and Morse in office. Comparatively, the National Rifle Associated donated $368,000 to support the recall effort, which pulled in only $500,000 total from the pro-gun lobby.

“I mean, that is incredible,” Glenn concluded.

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.
