GLENN: Don't you just hate selfish people? Always talking about themselves, blah, blah‑blah, ignoring the collective. I sure do. And so does today's czar. He's against reproductive rights. I mean, not, you know, the abortion kind of reproductive rights. He's totally cool with that. I mean your right to have kids. He said, quote, individual rights must be balanced against the power of the government to control human reproduction. Sure, sounds obvious to us. But some small‑minded people out there have crazy beliefs, and this czar has pointed out, quote, some people, respected legislators, judges and lawyers included, have viewed the right to have children as a fundamental and inalienable right, yet neither the Declaration of Independence, nor the Constitution mentions a right to reproduce, end quote. So who's this crazy czar? Who's the one that has the president's ear?

PAT: Is it Leonard Nimoy, Dr. Spock?

GLENN: No, it's not Dr. Spock.

PAT: No?

GLENN: No. I'll keep going. Quote: In the United States individuals have a constitutional right to privacy, at least to the extent that a woman has a right to choose not to have children. But that right's not unlimited. Where the society has a compelling subordinating interest in regulating population size, the right of the individual may be curtailed, end quote. If it's boring, you know, we'll probably let you have your kid, but compelling? Who needs an abortion? You do! All right, who's the czar? Who's the czar?

STU: Alec Baldwin? He loves kids.

GLENN: No. Okay, last hint. If you still need convincing on the legality of this whole "You can't have any children," our czar has an argument that's impossible to disagree with. Quote: The law regulates other highly personal matters. For example, no one may lawfully have more than one spouse at a time. Why should the law not be able to prevent a person from having more than two children, end quote. Boom! There it is! Case closed.

STU: Great logic.

GLENN: Yeah, it is. Okay, what's your guess?

PAT: Ernest Borgnine.

GLENN: No, he's not a czar. I don't think you guys understand this ‑‑

STU: Who's that lady? Charo? Is it Charo? Because she's so good with the kids, really adorable and just ‑‑

GLENN: The answer is science czar John Holdren.

STU: Oh, wow!

GLENN: The best friend of science.

PAT: Who would have seen that coming.

GLENN: He is the best friend of science and worst enemy of the future ratings of Nickelodeon.

VOICE: Ooh, sorry. Just like everyone who plays this game, you lose. But at least you'll die a little smarter just for listening to... Know Your Czars!

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.
