Brian Lilley of Canada’s Sun News talks about Toronto’s embattled mayor Rob Ford

At this point we are all familiar with the story of embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, and on radio this morning, Brian Lilley of Canada’s Sun News joined the program to discuss the larger implications of Ford’s behavior in relation in governing and politics.

Everyone likes to make fun of Glenn for his “how’s your soul” inquiry, but in the case of Ford, the people of Toronto may have benefitted from knowing the answer to that particular questions.

“How's your soul, right. That's the key,” Brian said. “Rob Ford is a lost soul right now because he came out and said he doesn't have a drinking problem. He's not an addict. He's not an alcoholic… He's out of control enough that if you haven't heard his original admission – that he smoked crack – it was, ‘Yes, I have. I think I did it about a year ago in one of my drunken stupors.’ He had a lot of drunken stupors and didn't know which one he'd smoked the crack in.”

“I got news for you, man. The whole idea of a problem with alcohol or drugs is: Is it interfering with your day-to-day life,” Glenn explained. “He's got an issue. He's completely out of control.”

While Ford’s actions certainly provide the basis for a resignation, Stu questioned the Toronto City Council’s decision to essentially strip the mayor of all his duties.

“Isn't it a certain precedent, despite what the mayor has done, that the city council can just come in and vote away all of his powers because they don't like him,” Stu asked. “That does not seem like that is within a normal system.”

“It doesn't seem to be within their powers. And we've got other politicians up here that are accused of actually milking a billion dollars from the taxpayer… [And] they are not getting the same kind of treatment,” Brian explained. “It's all upside down. Rob Ford's personal life is a mess. That's what's caused him this problem. He needs to get his personal life right because he’s actually doing a good job.”

“Brian, thank you so much and our best to everybody at Sun News. You are up against it, and you're doing a great job,” Glenn concluded. “You're a remarkable guy. And we're proud to be your friend and friends of Sun News up in Canada. Thank you so much, Brian.”

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.
