Is this the next Common Core?

Think Common Core is bad – wait until you hear about Imagining America, a national consortium of 90 campuses that Glenn believes could be America’s next progressive propaganda machine.

Imagining America was created through the White House Millennium Council, which was initiated under Bill Clinton in 1998 through an executive order. Their membership includes over 90 universities, including Columbia, NYU, Brown, University of Chicago, University of Washington, and UC Santa Barbara—all of whom receive grants from the Tides Foundation.

Using publicly available video, Glenn showed what some of the people involved want to do with the program. They discussed changing the face of government by getting radicals to run for office and involved with changing policy. They discussed redistribution of wealth, inequality, and oppression.

Many of their members have ties to George Soros. Pam Korza, for example, an advisory board member, is actually the co-director of the Soros funded Animating Democracy. Other members have written progressive texts and have ties to a wide range of connections including government organizations, universities, corporations, and more.

Imagining America openly admits to collaborating with “a whole domain of robust organizations with which higher education-based scholars and artists [can] collaborate” –meaning the Tides supported universities, and also what they call “non-academic cultural” organizations such as the Animating Democracy Initiative founded in 1996, The Community Arts Network founded in 1999, and the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience founded in 1999 - all of whom receive funds from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

The organization is also closely tied to the new United States Department of Arts and Culture, a group that Glenn claims is the new Progressive propaganda arm. It’s not a real government organization, but it sure seems to want to act like one. The group seeks to use the arts to promote “cultural equity” and a “democratic media”. Glenn said that they also want to re-create and rewrite our history using “observation, improvisation, innovation, resourcefulness, and creativity.”

There were several alarming pieces of information that Glenn and his team were able to find out about Imagining America, but perhaps the most concerning things were there efforts to rewrite and shape history. At their 2013 Conference, the group hosted a panel called “Claiming the Past, Creating the Future” that sought to “step into history and actively participate in documenting the past from the vantage point of the present to articulate a socially just future”.

While this group has become as pervasive as Common Core, Glenn said people need to be aware of what is happening early before they have a chance to grow their influence and rewrite history through indoctrination.

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.
