Dreamers & Deceivers: This President destroyed a man for exposing his personal secrets

On radio today, Glenn told the audience the story of Grover Cleveland, one of the biggest deceivers in American history.

In 2009, Governor Mark Sanford disappeared, and before long, the public knew he wasn’t really hiking the Appalachian Trail. But in 1893, President Grover Cleveland, facing an imminent vote on repeal of the Silver Purchase Act, one of the most important issues of his presidency, disappeared for five straight days. When a trusted investigative reporter exposed the secret, no one believed him. He was fired and, with the help of Cleveland and his confidants, disgraced.

"Grover Cleveland destroyed a guy in the press and said, because he had a tumor. He had part of his jaw and his face removed. And he had a tumor. He goes out on this boat to have his doctor come in and perform this really delicate surgery. The guy should not have been president. The guy could have died. He's gone for days. This one journalist finds out and says, oh, my gosh, he's on this boat. He's completely incapacitated. I think he has cancer of the jaw and they're removing parts of his jaw. What does the administration do? Just crushes this guy," Glenn said.

"He's been discredited.  He was a big guy.  Everybody trusted him.  But because -- because Grover Cleveland was known as an honest guy -- 'oh, he'll give you an honest deal', and because the administration all stuck together, they all targeted this one journalist," Glenn said. "On his 70th birthday, at the end of his career, after his career has been destroyed, the real story comes out.  Because a doctor actually saved a part of the tumor he pulled out of Grover Cleveland. He was vindicated at 70."

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.
