Legal expert Jay Sekulow: "I am more concerned for our country now than I've ever been"

Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, joined Glenn on radio this morning to discuss the growing number of ridiculous federal regulations that are destroying the country. Is it too late to turn things around?

"I am more concerned for our country now than I've ever been. I believe that right now we're probably at the most dangerous point in our constitutional republic that we've been in in at least 100 years. And a choice has to be made. Do we accept it and just see what happens, which would be unbelievably dangerous, or do we go ahead and fight back, which I believe is our only option?" Sekulow said.

"You resist. You reform. Then you restore...it has to be a collective effort. One person by themselves doesn't get to this," he continued.

What does he mean by resistance?

"We represented a large business that was challenging the Obamacare mandate. The HHS mandate. Remember, that was a couple of years ago. We ended up winning. We went to court for this large company. They simultaneously with the filing of a lawsuit, they get audit by the IRS. We go through the audit. No changes. No modifications. Everything is fine. We win the case at the Supreme Court of the United States. The IRS within a month sends out another letter within a month of them just closing the IRS case out, sends out another letter saying we're auditing you now for additional years. One of my law partners called me, Glenn, and said, what should we do? And I said, just tell them no. And you know what happened? The IRS folded because they don't want to be on Glenn Beck's program. And they don't want to be sued again. We sue them when they do these things and being held accountable. That's part of this. That's the resisting."

"These exemptions that these government agencies and these bureaucrats get where they do anything they want and are never held accountable. You cannot fire them. You cannot sue them. They cannot be held liable. We have to remove that immunity. That is a statutory fix that's not that complicated. We just have to get Republicans and Democrats too with a backbone to actually do it."

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.
