What is George Soros up to this time?

After purchasing a $24.3 million stake in the Israeli company SodaStream International Ltd earlier this year, George Soros has sold his shares amidst mounting political pressure. As Yahoo reported, a Soros spokesperson declined to comment on when the shares were sold, but a Palestinian activist seemingly took credit for the decision.

“After pressure from Soros partners in the region and the world, they dropped SodaStream and promised, in private letters so far, to issue guidelines similar to those adopted by the EU to prevent any investment into companies that sustain the Israeli occupation and settlements in particular,” Omar Barghouti, a Palestinian activist and co-founder of the BDS movement told The National.

You may recall SodaStream was in the headlines earlier this year when actress Scarlett Johansson refused to terminate her relationship with the company that has a manufacturing plant in Maale Adumim – a settlement in Judea. SodaStream actually employs 900 Palestinians at the facility, and the company openly supports Arab-Jewish equality and coexistence.

On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the Soros’ decision to take “a stand against the nation of Israel.”

As Glenn explained, the fact that Soros initially invested in SodaStream proves the value of the product.

“[SodaStream is] making a product that is really good. So good, in fact, that some of the biggest investors in the world have invested in Soda Stream,” Glenn said. “How big? The biggest of the big… a man who controls currencies can collapse entire currencies and countries just by a waive of his hand: George Soros. George Soros owned $25 million of stock in Soda Stream… He sold his 550,000 shares at $24.4 million after pressure from his partners in that region of the world.”

While Glenn recognized Soros’ right to invest his money as he sees fit, the politics of the deal left him wondering.

“I believe in a world that you're free to do what you believe is right. I believe in a world where we can all disagree… We're not shouted down. I believe in a world where somebody can go out and buy all the biggest rabbis in the world and mount a giant campaign and do whatever they want. You do that,” Glenn explained. “I believe in a world where that doesn't last. At some point, you're there alone – decrepit, aging, with nothing but your money to keep you warm at night. And you wonder, what the hell have I done?”

“I have sympathy for people like George Soros, who has gone through an awful lot in his life… He's gone through things I can’t even imagine,” he continued. “But I can't imagine how he found the path to his life and how he has found the answers that he has found through the extraordinary trials that he has been through. But I believe in a world where we all are different, and we all have different paths. He has chosen his. I have chosen mine.”

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.
