Hillary and Bernie Dis Police in Nevada Mountain Town

Last night at a rally in the city of Elko, a small mountain town in Nevada, Glenn had a chance to speak backstage with local police. What he learned had him stunned. During the Democrat caucus, both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders found ways to disrespect the Elko police.

"When Hillary Clinton was in town, she refused to take a picture with the police officers," Glenn said Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program. "The police officers found that a little insulting."

Why wouldn't Hillary want a picture taken with a group of local police officers? Could an image like that harm her political agenda?

"Hillary Clinton didn't want to take a picture . . . surrounded by a bunch of police officers, because that's what the socialist left, the narrative they're trying to promote," Glenn said.

As for Bernie Sanders, his speech was geared more for an inner city, showing how out-of-touch he was with the audience.

"And I think it's about high time in this country that our children can walk the streets at night without fear of being murdered by our police officers," Sanders said.

In a small mountain town of about 18,000, Bernie preached to the audience about police not murdering children in the streets.

"What the hell is that? What is that? I mean, you say that in Baltimore, maybe you can play that to your crowd. You say that in a town of 18,000 people in the mountains, where it's all farmers and ranchers?" Glenn exclaimed. "The police aren't murdering people in Elko. The police aren't murdering people generally speaking anywhere in America."

Clinton beat Sanders in the Nevada caucus by five points.

GLENN: We're so glad you've tuned in today from Reno, Nevada. It's the Glenn Beck Program. Let me start with what I have learned on the road here in Nevada, a continuation of what we talked about in South Carolina, and that is that people are really upset. People are angry.

Last night, I flew into Reno after a place called Elko, Nevada. It's up in the mountains. It's just this great little town. We went up there, and there were about 800 people that were there for a rally and had a chance to talk to them. And more importantly, I had a chance to talk to the people who were behind stage that are from the town that were only providing protection. It was the police officers and people like that.

What the amazing thing I found out was, when Bernie Sanders was in town -- let me start with Hillary Clinton. When Hillary Clinton was in town, she refused to take a picture with the police officers. Now, why you would do that is beyond me. But she didn't want a picture of her with the police officers from Elko. The police officers found that a little insulting.

Then Bernie Sanders comes into town. And from the stage, in this town of about 18,000 people, from the stage, Bernie Sanders said this, "And I think it's about high time in this country that our children can walk the streets at night without fear of being murdered by our police officers."

What the hell is that? What is that? In a town of -- I mean, you say that in Baltimore. Maybe you can play that to your crowd. You say that in a town of 18,000 people in the mountains. Where it's all farmers and ranchers. The police aren't murdering people in Elko. The police aren't murdering people generally speaking anywhere in America. But that's how out of touch and how angry those guys are.

Hillary Clinton didn't want to take a picture with the cops because she didn't want that circulating that she is surrounded by a bunch of police officers, because that's what the socialist left, the narrative they're trying to promote.

PAT: Well, she won by five points in Nevada, which, I mean, isn't 30 points. But it's still a significant victory. And in some precincts, yeah, they had the ace over the eight or whatever it was. But she is crushing him. She's going to beat him. Superdelegates or not, she's going to beat him.

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.
