VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's march to socialism.

GLENN: Destination, fascism USA. When you think about raising taxes, you know, and you think that's the only way, you generate government revenue. By the way, about 26% of Americans think that the government has its own money. I think most of those people are in congress but that's a different story. When you think that taxes is the only way to raise them, is the only way to generate revenue, then it might be a little easier to feel guilty about raising taxes on charities because after all, the tax revenue you get from the charities will go towards very important government charities. I like for its charitable giving, for charities. How does Obama defend his tax on charities? Quote: It is unfair for higher income donors to get a larger tax break for their gifts, end quote. Oh, those evil rich people again. I hate them! Eat them! They're so evil. In fact, they are pretending to help people in need just so they can get a tax break. It's a game. They are just pretending. Obama also said that charitable giving would only be reduced marginally. Well, I'm not sure that the words in Barack Obama's world mean the same thing in, you know, your world. What's marginally in Barack Obama's world? $4 billion. Obama argues that the real culprit for the decline in charitable giving is a financial crisis and an economy that's contracting. There's only one problem with Obama's theory on charities and that they are only being harmed marginally by his charity tax. Last year despite the worsening economic climate, charities reduced their donations by only $456 million. Obama's charity tax will cost them almost ten times as much the marginal amount of $4 billion. Comrades, good news. Our fearless leader, spending trillions of dollars, now has convinced Americans that $4 billion is a marginal amount.

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

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.
