WARNING: Do not take on debt for school!

Why is student loan debt the only kind that you can’t get rid off with bankruptcy? Glenn recounts a conversation he had with members of his own family and the sinister plan that could be behind the ballooning student debt problem.

Here's what Glenn had to say:

"Anyway, I just wanted to point this out that maybe, possibly we should consider having more than just cash on-hand. As I've been telling you recently, I don't have any idea what to do. I really don't. I mean, I'm spreading it out as much as I can. Like, pet rocks might be the thing of the future. Okay. Let's buy some pet rocks. Try to spread it out as much as you can, so one thing gets hit, you're not entirely wiped out. I know that's hard. I'm doing it with my children. My older children. You know, they don't have a lot of money. And they're like, Dad, what do we do? Well, first thing, you don't take on debt. And I feel bad for those that are taking on the debt of college."

"If you have a chance to not take that debt -- I told my daughter yesterday or the day before yesterday. We were having dinner, and I said, you know, I think that -- they're talking now about giving everybody a haircut if things collapse and freezing everybody's bank accounts. I said, loans will be a real problem. And I said, the only thing you can't go bankrupt with is a -- a debt from a student loan. And she said, why would they do that? And I said, well, they just strengthened those laws too."

"Why? Well, because it's very easy to get people to work. If you can't get out of that debt, you have to pay it back. We already know. We've heard Barack Obama say, 'well, why don't you just work for the government for ten years. And then we'll relieve that debt.' So it's a great way to get everybody involved in the government."

"Don't take debt for school! Don't do it! Go to a community college. As my daughter pointed out, she said, but, Dad, then you'll have a problem -- what will you put on your resume, et cetera, et cetera. I said, the big companies, the good companies, they're not even looking at that anymore. Google said they don't even look at that anymore. They don't care where you went to school. It's what skills do you have? Did you see Robert Downey's new plan. I love this. He started a new business. And it's [MasterClass] or something like that. I don't remember what it's called pick up, but he's gone to let's say Serena Williams and said, give me a five-hour course on tennis. Then I'll charge people 90 bucks for that five-hour course. And he's doing it on all fields and he's doing it with the best in that field. So you can have a five-hour course with the Steve Jobs. You want to learn design? Learn it from Steve Jobs. That's brilliant. That's the kind of learning that will actually make a difference. That's 90 bucks."

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.
