Glenn explains why if the progressives are able to flip Texas, we are done

This Sunday, a bevy of celebrities will descend upon the Largo at the Coronet in Los Angeles for an “emergency benefit to help Texas women” affected by the abortion restrictions passed in the state over the summer – despite State Senator Wendy Davis’ best efforts to thwart the legislation. According to the Daily Caller, comedians Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis and others are scheduled to appear for an evening of comedy and music called (excuse the language) “A Night of A Thousand Vaginas!

Rather then mock the Hollywood culture that has these celebrities raising “emergency funds” for the poor women in Texas who have had their abortion rights restricted, Glenn chose to look at the bigger picture. This particular event is just one in a series of small steps being taken to ensure progressivism one day overtakes Texas.

“What this is really about is changing the culture in Texas. They are doing everything they can – the progressives – to center in on Texas. If they get Texas, we are done. If they flip

Texas, we are done,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “What do you think immigration reform is for? Why do you think they wanted to make sure that everybody can vote without any kind of ID whatsoever? It is because if you can flip Texas, you are finished. Why do you think we have been saying, ‘Move to Texas’?”

Last night, Glenn attended an event with Texas business owners and executives, and he was asked why he decided to move to Texas. The answer was simple: Texas is one of the last beacons of freedom.

“To build one radio studio in New York – that was already digital – it took us almost a year to finish that studio. It was already a studio! [But it] took a year. We signed the lease on [the Texas] studio in December, maybe late November, and we were on the air with a full digital studio… by January. That's why we moved to Texas,” Glenn explained. “I looked at these guys and said, ‘You know why you moved to Texas. I know why. But do your employees know why you moved to Texas?’ You moved the Texas because you could no longer do business any place else.”

Pat pointed out that Dallas City Council members are now hoping to have a single-use plastic bag ban in place by March. And while such a restriction would seem like just another day at the office for a city like, say, New York, there are larger implications to such a ban in Texas.

“You have to understand that you have got to stand up for little things like the plastic bag thing. You have to stand up against that. That's insanity. That's fascism. If I want to use a plastic bag, I will use a plastic bag,” Glenn concluded. “If companies want to decide, that's where you do it… If we are an ecofriendly company, and we don't use plastic bags, that's the way you do that. If you believe it, you convince people. Fascists ban things… What are we doing?”

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.
