Unbelievable: Obama wants an Ebola czar

Just as Glenn was venting about the incompetence in the CDC, news broke that Obama was finally going to take some action. His big solution? Appoint an Ebola czar. Worst part? It wasn’t someone with any concrete experience dealing with deadly diseases or medical issues - he decided to appoint Joe Biden’s chief of staff. That’ll solve it!

TheBlaze's Fred Lucas reported:

While the White House initially resisted the notion of a “czar” pushed by some Republicans, including Arizona Sen. John McCain, Obama said Thursday that naming a single point person to supervise the coordination makes sense.

“It may make sense for us to have one person … so that after this initial surge of activity, we can have a more regular process just to make sure that we’re crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s going forward,” Obama said.

Klain oversaw the distribution of federal funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, better known as the stimulus. He previously served as chief of staff for both Vice President Joe Biden and Vice President Al Gore.

Before the news broke, Glenn was critical of the effort to appoint another "czar" rather than fix the problem at the CDC.

"We don't need an Ebola czar. We need somebody at the CDC who's not a political appointment. We need somebody who wasn't there to tell us about bike paths and fancy sandwiches that were grown in the First Lady's garden."

Needless to say, once he heard Klain's resume he wasn't happy.

"An attorney. What does an attorney do? Let's be honest? What are they paid to do? They are paid to say no. No, no, no. There's no vision in attorneys. They don't have vision. When there's no vision, the people perish. There's trouble. There's real trouble. Real trouble," Glenn said.

"Maybe this guy is really good, because maybe Joe Biden is much worse than we have been led to believe

because his Chief of Staff covered up a bunch of problems. That's the last thing we need, someone who covers up a bunch of problems. What qualifications does this guy have to become the Ebola czar? An attorney?" Glenn said.

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.
