Would Rand Paul’s policies lead to a terror attack?

On radio Friday, Glenn spoke at length with Sen. Rand Paul about his candidacy and his policies. Many are concerned about the foreign policy of a Libertarian candidate, so Glenn asked him what he would say to those who think a Libertarian stance could lead to a terror attack. Dr. Paul went into detail on his stance on the surveillance state, the Middle East, and the PATRIOT Act.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment:

GLENN: How do you respond to people who would -- I think I know you well enough to know that you mean what you say, and you will do these things, but when you get into the domestic spying, you said in your speech that on day number one, you will revoke that executive order and you will stop the spying on Americans. What do you say to people who would then, the minute we'd get hit, and we are going to get hit one way or other. It is a matter of time before something happens. What would you say to people who say well, it's your fault, because that's what will happen.

PAUL: Well, people say this about the PATRIOT Act. I tried to get rid of the PATRIOT ACT, because I think it turns the Constitution up-side down. People said what would you rely on. I said couldn't we just for a day rely on the Constitution? The same way with the spying program.

I'm not saying don't use intelligence. I think we should use our intelligence to find out about people who might attack us.

If you are here, you moved here from Pakistan or from Yemen last year and you are calling people back in Yemen and are plotting, and we have evidence, we should look at your phone records. If your records include 20 people you called in the country and in Yemen, and there is suspicion and you take it to a judge, look at their phone records. I don't care if you go 20 hops into the material looks for people who are terrorists. I just want you to ask an judge and put an individual's name on the warrant.

What I object to is the warrant that Snowden revealed, said Verizon on it. I don't know anyone named Mr. Verizon. Mr. Verizon doesn't have possession of hundreds of millions of phone calls he has the right to divulge. You need of warrants that are individualized. This was a big deal. Just finished reading Mike Lee's take on this. Have you seen Mike Lee's new book?

GLENN: Yes, I have.

PAUL: In the book, he tells the story of John Wilkes, a story about his opposition to the king, because the king came after him with a warrant without his name on it. This is what began this whole history of the 4th Amendment that we would individualize -- the government, no matter who it was, had to have your name on a warrant. It can't be a blanket warrant for anybody's stuff.

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.
