Once again, Texas got it right! Texas’ trade sanctions against Iran are finding their mark

I talked with a Texas State Rep tonight, and he shared some terrific news with me - great news.

It turns out that 20 states have passed their own sanctions against Iran (in Texas, that has amounted to some $250 billion in assets that are withheld from Iran and those who do business with them; it also significantly hurts American companies who do business with Texas and with Iran - they have to choose one or the other - do business with Texas, or with Iran).

The effect of the state sanctions has been so great that in the John Kerry agreement with Iran, Iran inserted a paragraph calling on the president to do all he can to rescind the state sanctions - so they are hurting Iran.

I will begin working to get other states to impose their own economic/trade sanctions against Iran.

Look at the email blast that just went out from State Rep Phil King.

Once Again, Texas Got it Right!

We weren't sure it made an impact but apparently it did. Two years ago, Texas legislators passed SB 200, which created Texas economic sanctions against Iran.

In the president's agreement, Iran inserted a paragraph requiring our president to push Texas and other states to lift our sanctions. Once again, Texas got it right!

I stand with Governor Abbott and fully support his letter to our Texas congressional delegation urging their opposition to the Iran nuclear weapons deal. If this deal becomes law, I will do all I can to defend Texas's economic sanctions.

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.
