Glenn calls for virtual prayer meeting to pray for our country

With an off-duty Texas police officer found dead in his home Monday and another officer about to be buried in Houston, it shouldn't be difficult to realize we have a serious problem in our country.

"They are being hunted and killed," Glenn said. Then he told listeners what he plans to do about it.

I don't know about you. I'm going to the funeral on Friday in Houston. Now, I happen to be here and I happen to have a job that I can leave and go and support the family. Most people can't. And most people are looking for, what can I do? I want to support our police. What can I do? May I suggest that that's what we talk about here for the first hour? May I suggest we try to figure out what we can do? I've had my team on it all night. What can we do?

We talked about doing a march. Well, there's a park that's 2 miles down the road, and it's too far for people to walk. I can't get the parade permits because I have to have permits to do it. We called the church. The church is overwhelmed. This is the Second Baptist Church in Houston. It is a large, large church. They're overwhelmed. They don't know how many thousands of people are going to show up.

They asked us, "please, please don't. Don't. Because we don't know about parking. We don't know what to do."

So what can we do? I was in the hallway just a few minutes ago and I said, why don't we just have a virtual meeting? Why don't we have a virtual prayer meeting? Why don't we just get all of the people from all around the country to pray for our country?

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.
