Glenn: Misfits will rule the world

For the past few weeks, Glenn has been speaking with out-of-the-box thinkers who have given the audience insight on the kinds of problems and solutions happening in society today. Rather than focus on politics, these guests - including Malcolm Gladwell and Srinivas Rao - these guests have focused on people making changes within themselves and recognizing the power and creativity that lies within the individual. Today on radio, Glenn explained the common themes that people everywhere need to recognize in order to prepare for the future that is rapidly approaching.

"We're all misfits," Glenn said. "You should be a misfit. When we are all trying to be exactly the same, it falls apart, it falls apart."

"I'm going to talk to Penn Jillette tonight about this. Penn has been very, very optimistic. He's a libertarian. He's like 'this is the time for liberty. We are about to really become free.' I think he's right. We are in for real trouble in the meantime in this transition, but I think he's right. We are about to really become free. Because technology allows us to not have to go through systems and people and that's what this struggle is all about," Glenn said.

"The Tea Party struggle right now, it is not about the Constitution. It is about the middle man. Why do I have to go through a middleman? Why do I have to listen to somebody in Washington, when I can reach out and go right directly to the source now? I don't need anybody to do all of this stuff for me. You don't have to tell me how to live my life. I don't need that anymore."

Glenn pointed out how people are shifting away from traditional TV viewing and watching more online via devices like Roku and Apple TV. Glenn said that new technology allows people to get their message and their content without the traditional gatekeepers.

"You don't need all (the networks) anymore," Glenn said. "What is changing? What is changing now is if you have something unique to offer, you can offer it."

On an even broader scale, people can now fact check the old media establishment - like when the NYT's said Obama simply misspoke about the healthcare law - and they can seek out alternative sources for news that hadn't been available before.

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.
