Chris Kyle's killer found guilt - here's how Glenn reacted to the verdict

Eddie Ray Routh was found guilty Tuesday night of capital murder last night in the killing of 'American Sniper' Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield. He will spend the rest of his life in prison. After reading the news, Glenn wondered if the sentence truly fit the crime.

Last night, as I was going to bed, my wife said to me, there's a verdict in the "American Sniper" trial. I held my breath for a second, waiting to hear what that might be, no longer really believing that justice in America exists. Guilty. Guilty. However, life in prison without parole may not be enough for Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield's killer, but at least it's not the tragedy of justice we saw go to the Kyle family in the Jesse Ventura case. Last night I wrote on Facebook that I was a little tired and a little grumpy and maybe I shouldn't be thinking out loud, but I want to know what the real motive of the killing really was. If he's insane, he should be hospitalized, not imprisoned, but I don't believe he suffered any kind of PTSD. He didn't see any action at all, and in fact, if he has PTSD, I have watched two seasons of the "Walking Dead". I might have it too. So why is it that he killed these guys?

The president could come out and say maybe it was workplace violence. I would just like the news occasionally to make sense and to tell us really what is happening in the world. I know that Hillary Clinton could come out and say what difference does it make. We've got two people dead now. What difference does it make if he was suffering from PTSD or maybe he was just a guy walking down the street that just decided to go kill some Americans. What difference does it make?

Maybe the president could come out and explain that Chris and Chad were just some random folks that were killed. I don't know what the jury knows. I accept their verdict. I have a feeling he's not going to do well in prison. I just wish somebody cared enough about our soldiers and their families and the truth to see that justice is really served and answers are finally had. Truth and justice used to be the American way. I'm not holding my breath. I know the president just hates to comment on local stories. I know he hates to comment on local shootings, you know, before a verdict comes out, but now that it's out, maybe, just maybe, the president could call the wife of one of America's greatest warriors and offer some sort of heartfelt thanks on behalf of a grateful nation. Maybe he could do that.

My guess is he's too busy today apologizing for something Americans have done, apologizing to the Muslim world, maybe he's going took busy today condemning Christians. I know he's got a full schedule of betraying Israel. He also has to take over the Internet sometime today, but maybe on the back nine at some point, he could pop a text message her way. After all, he did insist that he had his own private BlackBerry that we all spent a fortune securing, so he could do things like that.

One other note on this: Nobody has talked about the family of the killer either, and if we do admire the Amish and the way they handled things, we should also be praying for the family of the killer and thinking about them today, for the hell that they have gone through and pray for their healing as well. No one is left untouched by this awful thing called war that I don't even know what it's about anymore.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
