Young Republicans Communications Chair Resigns Over Trump

Strength and courage are in short supply these days but there are some willing to take the heat.

"This is a time where we have to start holding up people of courage and people who are brave because they are in the minority," Glenn said Thursday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Katrina Jorgensen is one such person. Formerly the National Communications Chair for the Young Republicans, Jorgensen joined the program to talk about why she recently resigned her post, taking a stand against Donald Trump.

"When you saw Donald Trump start to win... what starts to make you worry, what brings you to this decision this week?" Glenn asked.

"After Indiana, when it seemed that --- other candidates had dropped out --- there was no hope for a brokered convention, which is what I wanted," Jorgensen said. "I started to very seriously think, what is the best decision for me moving forward, not just for my career or politics in general, but what decision could I live with?"

Jorgensen is now being accused of ostensibly supporting Hillary Clinton, a predicament familiar to Glenn.

"I've heard a lot of that online since I posted my resignation letter. People telling me that by choosing to resign, I was voting for Hillary, indirectly --- even if I didn't go in a ballot box and vote for her," Jorgensen said.

"And how do you deal with it? How do you respond?" Glenn asked.

"Well, there has been an equal number of positive responses as well and people who appreciated me standing on principle," Jorgensen said.

Hypothetically, if Trump were to win and become an amazing president, would Jorgensen fall in line?

"I would have to stand up and say I was wrong for sure. I would definitely eat my words. But I can't really imagine that happening based on everything he's said up to this point," Jorgensen said.

What about Trump's statements has bothered Jorgensen?

"I very much worry that there would be a suspension of the Constitution and that he would change the way that we do things," Jorgensen said. "But obviously, the biggest issue would be the breakdown in the way that our country was founded... I think that there is a lot of similarities to him and certain dictatorships, at least in his rhetoric."

Jorgensen dedication to party over principles is something to be admired.

"I have tremendous respect for you, Katrina. I really do. It takes a lot of guts. I know the kind of heat you're getting," Glenn said. "But I really respect you and applaud you for taking a very bold stand and following your principles over anything else."

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.
