Jay Carney mocks ABC News’ Jon Karl for daring to question Obamacare signup process

The Obamacare rollout has been a major black eye for this Administration. The tactic to cover up for the failures has been to lie (i.e. President Obama’s now infamous: If you like your plan, you can keep your plan). If they didn’t lie, the law never would have passed. But, as Glenn explained on radio this morning, lying is nothing new.

So what is the next tactic the Obama Administration will use to distract from the fiasco? Based on White House Press Secretary Jay Carney’s performance yesterday, the Rules for Radicals playbook of isolate and ridicule seems to be on tap.

“So what is their tactic now,” Glenn asked. “Let's go to Jay Carney, otherwise known as Saul Alinsky.”

“Seriously, talk to people who really don't like bullies. Let's talk seriously. I don't like bullies… I despise bullies, but the left is the one that always gets credit for being against bullies. But their playbook is from the biggest bully of all time: Saul Alinsky,” Glenn explained. “And Saul Alinsky's tactic is – think of bullies – isolate, ridicule. So what you do is you get everybody onto your side and then you surround that individual. This is Saul Alinsky tactic… So he ridicules and then, like Pat said, brings the crowd around him and says, ‘John, we are not all confused. We are all in this room. You're all alone.’”

But this tactic of isolating and ridiculing is not simply reserved for the press. Anyone who disagrees with this White House is saddled with the same treatment.

“I want you to listen carefully,” Glenn said. “This is what everyone in this society is trying to convince you of: That you are alone, that everybody is against you, that the odds are against you, that you will never make it, that you will never make it in your business, never make it in your school. You need somebody to help you. And listen, that's a cute little idea that you have, but you didn't build that. You didn't do that. You are not capable. Don't listen to any of that.”

“I want to tell you something really, really important. There are certain laws of the universe that are true and unchangeable. And one of them is, there's power in the spoken word… There's power in the spoken word. There's power in what you think,” he continued. “And right now the entire world is geared up to make you think that the collective has power; that the collective is worth saving; that the individual is meaningless, is helpless, is hopeless. Do not believe any of it. Do not speak any of it. Only speak those things that you know to be true… You are powerful.”

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.
