Presidential Candidate Evan McMullin's Appeal to Constitutional Conservatives

Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin joined The Glenn Beck Program Monday to discuss, among other things, religious liberty and illegal immigration. Top of mind for Glenn was diving into policies that would appeal to constitutional conservatives. McMullin, a big Tenth Amendment advocate, was happy to oblige.

"So, Evan, we have everybody playing to the left or to the center left, and it really seems like nobody really cares about those real true constitutional conservatives," Glenn said.

McMullin agreed, offering solutions that would bring back power to the people.

"First of all, when it comes to the courts, I genuinely believe, and have always believed, that we need originalists on the court. Yeah, this isn't a campaign promise that I made in order to appease Republicans like Donald Trump. This is something I believe firmly. The Constitution, I believe, is an inspired document, and we need our Supreme Court judges to take an originalist perspective on it," McMullin said.

Additionally, McMullin would focus heavily on restoring Article I of the Constitution.

"Right now, the executive branch has taken over the powers that are explicitly given only to the Congress, only to the people's representatives in Congress, to make laws. Those powers need to be shifted back to the executive, or sorry, back to the legislative branch, where the people's representatives are accountable for the laws they make. Right now, we have bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., writing all these major laws that get in the way of economic freedom and just liberty in general, and the American people have very little recourse. That has to change," McMullin said.

With news breaking over the weekend that one of Clinton's close advisor's, Huma Abedin, worked for 12 years at a radical Muslim journal, Glenn wanted McMullin's take on the Muslim Brotherhood.

"Can you tell me what you know about the Muslim Brotherhood and if we have a problem with infiltration in the government," Glenn asked.

As a former CIA operative, McMullin was certainly aware of the terrorist-linked group.

"The Muslim Brotherhood is a broad organization, that in some places is extreme, and in other countries, it's moderate pro-democracy. It's just very broad across North Africa and the Middle East. But I will say that in certain places, it's more extreme, and it can be a precursor to terrorist organizations. But we need to be careful to understand that that is not always the case," McMullin said. "For example, in Tunisia, you have pro-democracy elements of the Muslim Brotherhood. So it's a diverse, loose organization. But I'm opposed to Islamic extremism everywhere, wherever it is. But let's be careful to label it correctly, where it exists."

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.
