Montel Williams derides Obama Administration’s use of DOD facilities for illegal immigrants

Over the last several weeks, Glenn has spoken to “strange bedfellow” Montel Williams about a cause they can both come together on: The treatment of our veterans. Williams is a 22-year veteran who has spoken candidly about the atrocity that is the VA scandal. On radio this morning, Williams joined TheBlaze’s Mike Opelka to discuss the work he is doing to keep this scandal in the news.

In light of reports that many of the illegal immigrants who have crossed the border in recent months are being cared for and housed at Department of Defense facilities across the American south, Williams is outraged that this care is coming at the expense of our veterans.

“This is horrendous. We can't really put a finger on the scandal to try to make people understand the scope, but… we're contemplating, last week, allowing 50,000 children that were thrown at us in a terrorist way,” Williams explained. “Let's explain: [This] wasn't just refugees coming across the border. Countries have deliberately done this to impact our economy, to impact our society. That's terrorism. But we are going to open up the doors to our active duty facilities to take care of these children.”

“Now I'm a compassionate guy. We don't need to be throwing people under the bus, throwing children away,” he continued. “But I'm going to tell you: How dare you. When we have 50,000 soldiers waiting to just see a doctor once, you will run a child in another country in front of him?”

Williams sought to remind Americans that we are still actively fighting a war in Afghanistan and three soldiers were lost this week alone. He has created a petition on WhiteHouse.gov titled #VASurge, and he needs to reach 100,000 signatures by July 12 to force a response from the White House. The petition outlines three seemingly common sense suggestions that would get the ball rolling towards fixing this problem:

• Declare a public health emergency pursuant to PL 109-364

• Order Secretaries of VA, Defense, HHS to present a plan within 10 days to Surge and clear the backlog within 90 days. USE THE SURGE TO DEFINE A BASELINE of what it takes to meet our 14 day commitment.

• Order all active duty hospitals, clinics, other Federal facilities open to Veterans.

“Montel created a petition on the White House website. We need 100,000 signatures on this… All it is asking is for the president to order a surge for the VA, as Montel outlined and to consider Ken Fisher of Fisher House as VA secretary,” Mike concluded. “I will keep pushing this until we get there. We only have two weeks to get this done, folks… Do a favor for a veteran. Do a favor for all veterans. Sign the petition.”

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.
