Glenn Predicts Who Obama Will Pardon Next

Barack Obama has made history as president of the United States --- over and over again.

For example, last year his massive land grab of 260 million acres of national public lands and waters was more than any previous president in history, including Teddy Roosevelt. (That was before he took nearly two million acres from Utah and Nevada this year, despite vehement local opposition.)

He broke policy and precedent with a trip to Cuba, embracing the abusive Castro regime. Just a week before leaving office, Obama issued a final salvo, ending a longstanding policy that Cuban refugees be welcomed in the United States (after all, they'd be killed, imprisoned or tortured if forced to return to Cuba).

Finally, in the last days of his presidency, Obama has ramped up pardons and commutation grants, commuting the sentences of nearly 1,400 individuals in all, more than any president in this nation’s history and more than the past 12 presidents combined --- and he's not done yet.

Glenn had a few predictions about who might be next when Obama waves his magic wand.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Hello, and welcome to the program.

I think today we are in for substantial problems. I have said in the past that I -- I -- I wouldn't put it past Barack Obama --

PAT: Yeah. Oh, yeah.

GLENN: So The Blind Sheikh, those were my two. The Blind Sheikh and Mumia Abu-Jamal. I'd like to add another one. Is it possible that the president pardons everyone who is in prison for marijuana charges?

PAT: Oh, yeah. I think so. That would be something he would do.

GLENN: They said today, substantially more people are going to be pardoned, and he's already pardoned 260 -- 209.

STU: Yeah.

[break]

GLENN: Hello, America. A lot to say on the president, the people that he has pardoned and the people that are remaining. He has already let over 200 people out of prison, some really bad guys. We're as a country having a bizarre conversation about Bradley Manning, Chelsea, as some like to call him. And some on the left are celebrating, yet they were the ones who are also saying that WikiLeaks and Russia are bad and here's the guy who leaked all this information to WikiLeaks and Russia. I don't -- it's -- it's a surreal world, a world that if we were being pitched this around a Hollywood pitch table for a movie, all of us would say, "It's not believable." But that's the world we live in.

The White House is saying the 200 are nothing. Substantially more are being released tomorrow. Who could that be?

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.
