Glenn Beck: Liberal supermajority?


A liberal supermajority?

VOICE: Electoral votes, control of the Senate, popular vote count, the latest polls, control of the house, up-to-the-minute rumors and falsehoods, fancy buzzwords and more. It's a political geek election report on the Glenn Beck program.

STU: Well, Glenn, there's -- we need to look forward, we're looking back a little bit today.

GLENN: Oh, I love that.

STU: Remember back in -- remember Paul Olson tragically passed away and they had his Memorial service turned into like a Democratic campaign fundraising event. It was a big story back in the day.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Well, when that happened, Jesse Ventura was the government of Minnesota and he decided, he was so turned off by all of that, instead of appointing another Democrat, he appointed an Independent. This is going back a little ways, but it leads us to today. We're talking about the control of the Senate a lot. The guy he put into office.

GLENN: Appointed.

STU: Yeah, appointed, was Barkley. He was an independent third independent guy, you know Ventura was big on that. That guy who served only a month or two is now back and he's running for senator right now and is pulling 18% of the vote in the Minnesota Senate race which Franken, Al Franken, yes, that Al Franken leads by one point over Norm Coleman. So you're talking about these are all very important and very tight races. 18% going to a third party. Could be a complete nightmare if you actually care about control of the Senate.

GLENN: Can I, can I tell you something? Listen. I mean, Stu, if I would have said to you that the most liberal senator in all of congress would be President, the number three guy, liberal scale, will be the vice president, Nancy Pelosi will be running the House, the House will be overwhelmingly Democratic and not just Democrats, unlike any Democrat you've ever seen. We're talking the left. Then the Senate will not have a filibuster and it will be run by Harry Reid. And sitting as a senator will be Al Franken.

STU: Yeah, I would say that Jacques Chirac will come here and be the conservative alternative to that situation.

GLENN: It's absolutely unbelievable what we're headed for.

STU: It is, but we do have some hope here. The moment of hope today, Glenn, is that if you look at the national polls, they are continue to go tighten. Obama is clearly now off of his biggest lead from last week and it looks like while McCain didn't exactly dominate the debate, he lost most of the post-debate polls.

GLENN: Of course.

STU: He certainly -- which happens, by the way, every single time. Republicans never win those debate polls. But he was able to make the base at least convinced again to be happy to vote for him, which is increasing his enthusiasm. So some of the people who are saying they didn't know are now back in the McCain camp, which is positive, all right? So we have two, as you know, two states that we call 100% accuracy every single day on the geek report.

Today we call South Carolina for John McCain. Congratulations, South Carolina. And Oregon for Barack Obama in our plan to give the bigger states as much as possible to McCain so it looks like he's winning. Now John McCain leads the electoral vote count 87-41.

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.
