What is really happening in Baltimore?

What happened to Freddie Gray? Every hour there seems to be a new story that contradicts the “facts” that everyone accepted the hour previous. Freddie Gray was beaten by police officers on his way to jail. No, Freddie Gray threw himself against the wall of the police van, damaging his own spine. Wait, that may not be it either. But the cops are racist - except half of them are black. What’s really going on? What are you supposed to do? Glenn gave his thoughts during Monday’s radio show.

Let me go to Baltimore. Another confusing situation, I guess. I guess he broke his spine before getting into the van, except that wasn't true. He was pounding his head on the wall of the van, trying to inflict injuries on himself. He had a witness that is a criminal, now says that wasn't true.

The cops were arrested as a sacrifice, or was it the cops were arrested because they're guilty? Or were the cops racists? Except half the cops are black, and almost every city official I see in Baltimore is black.

Protesters should wait until all the information is out and let the system work before they judge the case or riot. And yet, the internet is ablaze with the authors of the last point now saying it's an injustice and time for people to take the streets.

I don't know what to believe anymore. I don't even know who we think we are anymore. I watched CNN. I got one side. I watched Fox. I got the other side. But I don't think I got the truth in either of them.

There are no good guys. No bad guys. Nobody really wanting to find out the facts. Are those who support the police any more patient than the protesters? Yes, they didn't burn down the city. But I have read the calls for violence, haven't you?

I believe in the system. I believe the vast majority of people in Baltimore are good. I believe the vast majority of cops are good. I don't have faith in our federal system, and I don't have faith in the old media. But I do have faith in people.

We've screwed things up in the last hundred years, it's going to take time for this unravel. But if we all have the same goals of truth, justice, and unity, we will prevail.

I pray for the Gray family. I pray for the city of Baltimore. I pray for the policemen involved. I pray for their families. All the cops around the country that know this is coming to their city, because it is. It already is. In Seattle. In Oakland. In Dallas. This weekend. There were protests all around the country. It's coming. The truth must prevail. The Democratic socialists that have run these cities for decades are at fault in a big way.

If this police force is bad and racist, who didn't do their job to clean it up a long time ago? The African-American Democratic socialists.

The only ones I'm afraid that will get out without paying any price are the so-called leaders in these cities and in our country.

We have to look to clean up our own cities, and our own police departments have to police themselves. We have to clean up our own families. We have to clean up our own churches. We do it now before there's trouble. Because this story will play itself out over and over again in America. And how do I know? I know because I read The Coming Insurrection. I listened to those radicals who led Occupy Wall Street. I read what ISIS is currently tweeting. I look at what Iran is saying. I listen to those leaders in Russia. I've listened to Frances Fox Piven and Al Sharpton and the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam or any of the other leftists who have been planting these seeds for a very, very long time. Now is the time to be wise as serpents and gentle as doves.

Speak truth. Find joy.

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.
