Why would Glenn pay $10,000 for an old magazine?

On radio Wednesday, Glenn told listeners about a very rare piece of World War II history. Despite hundreds of thousands of copies being printed originally, this 30-page German magazine known simply as KZ is extremely hard to find today. The reason there are so few left is chillingly similar to why people are ignoring the atrocities of our day.

Glenn explained how Eisenhower, when he first came into one of the concentration camps, said the German people have to see their crimes. So, Eisenhower commissioned the printing of the KZ magazine, distributing it to every single home in every town there was a concentration camp.

Thumbing through some of the pages, Glenn showed how the magazine contains nothing but pictures of what happened in the concentration camps.

"The reason why this is so expensive is because almost all of them unopened went into the fire," Glenn said. "There was a knock on the door. An American soldier came. 'This is for your family. Read it.' They closed the door. The mother or father took it and said, 'I don't want to see this.' And threw it in the fire before their children could see it."

Then, Glenn asked a poignant question, bringing new meaning to the historical artifact.

"What is the difference between the German people and those of us who are alive today here in America with the slaughterhouses that are Planned Parenthood?" Glenn said.

GLENN: This is a very, very rare piece of American military information. It's just called KZ. We printed hundreds of thousands of these. But they're extraordinarily rare. Because they were given to the people in Germany in each of the concentration camp towns. And all it is, if you open it up, it's a magazine. It's about, I don't know, 30 pages. And all that's inside are the pictures of what happened in the concentration camps in their town. This is something that Eisenhower said, when he first came into one of the concentration camps, he said, the German people have to see their crimes. They have to see it, and they have to look at it.

What they did is, they made the German people come in and first take a tour. Before they cleaned anything up, they went to the town, and they said, come see. And I've seen the video. If you watch the new documentary that's out on HBO. Came out in the last six months.

It was made by Alfred Hitchcock. And it's -- it's pretty stark. And they were told when they were making this, the cameramen were told, do not stop the film. Make sure that there's no edit in the whole real of your camera. Run it the full eight minutes. Because people will not -- they'll say that it was edited. Does this sound familiar, Planned Parenthood? They'll say that it was edited. So make sure that there's no edits in that.

Also, put famous people in. If there is a famous general, a famous soldier, a mayor of the town, make sure he's in there so people can identify that person and say, well, I know that person. And that person was standing there, so this isn't some sort of a stage. They knew the denial would run so deep.

Then Eisenhower said, print these. They went to every single home in every town there was a concentration camp. The reason why -- I believe I may have paid $10,000 for this. The reason why this is so expensive is because almost all of them unopened went into the fire. There was a knock on the door. American soldier came. This is for your family. Read it.

They closed the door. The mother or father took it and said, I don't want to see this. And threw it in the fire before their children could see it.

May I ask what the difference is between us? What is the difference between the German people and those of us who are alive today here in America with the slaughterhouses that are Planned Parenthood?

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.
