Awwww! Charles Manson got a girlfriend

We have a saying around the Mercury Studios - love is contagious. And it looks like Charles Manson and a really misguided young lady have caught the fever! That's right, America's best known psychopath Charles Manson has found love and is getting married. If it can happen to him, it truly can happen to anyone!

The guys reacted to the news on radio this morning:

FOX News reported:

Mass murderer Charles Manson has gotten a license to marry a 26-year-old woman who visits him in prison.

The Kings County marriage license, viewed Monday by The Associated Press, was issued Nov. 7 for the 80-year-old Manson and Afton Elaine Burton, who left her Midwestern home nine years ago and moved to Corcoran, California — the site of the prison — to be near Manson. She maintains several websites advocating Manson's innocence.

The license does not specify a wedding date and indicates the couple has 90 days to get married or they will have to reapply.

"It's creepy weird. She moved there to be with him when she was 19 years old. She has to be very disturbed," Glenn said. " He's missing teeth. He has the swastika on his forehead. He's not a good-looking man. He's one of the men that make me feel good about myself."

Glenn said that the story reminds him of an old Irish saying, where one man comes upon another man and asks for directions.

"You know, there's this Irish tale or saying, and a visitor is walking down the street. In the farm country of Ireland. And he comes across a farmer. And he says, hey, can you help me? I'm lost and I need to get back right back on track."

"The farmer says, sure. Where you headed?"

"The visitor tells him. The farmer sits there for a while and scratches his face and looks down at the dirt and then looks up at the sky and then looks at the guy and says, yeah, if that's where you're going, I wouldn't start from here."

"And I love that story because that's the way life is. If that's where you're headed, you can't get there from here. But you have to. And I think the problem is, is that families will look at somebody like this, and you'll say, I just love her so much. We have to give her a chance. We got to do this. People just know. You know what's the right thing to do. You just do, but you dismiss it all the time. And it's because you're like, no, we got to get back on track."

"No. Those and it's have been passed, you're not going to go back that way. It's a completely different route now. I know you're standing out in the middle of the field, and I know where you want to go, and you're right, you shouldn't start from here. But you got to shed the past. Shed what you thought you knew and I'll show you a completely new path. Unfortunately, I think too many of us we look at the things going on in life, and we look at people in our life, and we know what the right thing to do is, we just don't want to accept it."

"I think if you're her dad, you're looking at that like, I can't. Dad, I got it.  I get it.  But you got to listen to common sense.  She's checked out.  She has checked out.  And you have to do the right thing for the rest of your family.  That would be so hard, wouldn't it?  Imagine your daughter, that would be so hard."

The guys wondered what the rest of this woman's life looks like after making headlines as the wife of Charles Manson. Who would hire her? Who would want to associate with her?

"What happens after?  Obviously, he's going to die in prison at some point in the near future.  She's going to be 35, 37 years old. now widowed from a mass murderer.  What does the rest of her life look like?" Stu asked.

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.
