Proposed Arizona law sparks debate in the morning meeting

Every morning, Glenn gathers his producers together to discuss the news of the day and plan out the radio and television shows. Today, a discussion emerged over a proposed law in Arizona that would protect businesses who refuse service to gays and lesbians based on religious beliefs. Some are calling it a modern day version of Jim Crow laws, while others see it as a protection of individual religious beliefs. The conversation sparked debate in the meeting, with producers coming down on different sides of the issues.

Glenn said he doesn't want to see a return to the days where people hung signs saying certain kinds of people weren't welcome, but he also didn't think people should be forced to violate their religious beliefs.

"We aren't the same America we were in the 1950s," Glenn said referencing the days of segregation. "We won't frequent those places."

Dan Andros, Glenn's writer for the TV show, argued that he understood the position of the baker in California, who said he couldn't make a cake for a lesbian couple because it violated his beliefs. However, Dan said he had a problem with refusing services to people based on their sexual orientation when the service has no ties to religion.

Glenn, however, argued that in a truly free society businesses should be allowed to refuse service to anyone they wanted for any reason, but in doing so they will expose any underlying hatred or ugliness and people can and most likely will choose not to support them. If people really want to live in a world with less government and more personal responsibility, the burden is on the individual to support the businesses that are in line with their values and expose the people and businesses that don't share those values.

"I don't like that world where businesses say 'I don't want to serve your kind', but that's freedom. Freedom is ugly," Glenn argued. "I know who people are. They aren't wearing a mask all the time."

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.
