GLENN: Yes, our book Arguing With Idiots, it is coming out September 20 something or other.

PAT: 2nd.

GLENN: September 22nd. And it's got a lovely picture of me that's not going to infuriate anybody. Not going to infuriate anybody. This thing is riddled with facts and it's 25 pages of fine print footnotes so you know exactly how we did our research. And it is the arguments against healthcare. It is the arguments against gun control. It's the arguments for the Constitution. You name it, this thing is just, it's the best piece of material we have ever done. And I know a lot of people in the audience will be going, ooh, wow, that's good. But for people who actually enjoy this program, they're going, ooh, wow, that ‑‑ no. It's really a good book. All right. Because we wanted to put it out because you're going to find yourself in an argument with an idiot that says things like this:

PAT: Yes, Mr. Beck, why? Why are you so afraid of diversity?

GLENN: I'm not afraid of diversity.

PAT: Why ‑‑

GLENN: I think diversity is good.

PAT: Oh, please. You were screaming and crying so hard last night on TV.

GLENN: I didn't cry on TV.

PAT: Oh, no, the FCC is going to ask ‑‑ there needs to be something other than fat old lard butt whitey haters on the radio. That's scary. I'm scared. Help me.

GLENN: First of all, there's plenty of diversity on the air. No one listens to that diversity, but they could. There's Air America, NPR. There's all kinds of radio stations that cater to minorities.

PAT: Oh, really? Name one. Name one voice of reason that anyone has ever heard of. Name one Barack Obama fan on the radio. Name one.

GLENN: Okay. Well, I can't name them by name because nobody listens to them. You know what I mean? But they could listen to them if they wanted to.

PAT: Well, isn't that convenient. You are leaving it to choice.

GLENN: Yes, I ‑‑ well, you know, that's exactly, that's exactly right. I mean, I thought you were all about a person's right to choose.

PAT: Yeah, abortions, not radio stations. Just look where the choice of the radio stations has gotten us so far. It's polluted the aid I don't waves with hatred, choosing SUVs to drive has polluted the air with climate change and killed polar bears and the cave‑dwelling Paiute trout and it's caused beavers to stop making dams.

GLENN: I don't think that is ‑‑

PAT: Your choice of food, it's driven up the cost of healthcare 239% in the last 0 years, Mr. Beck. If we keep going on this path, it will go up another 426,000% by next Tuesday. People are too stupid to make these important decisions, these important choices.

GLENN: Okay. So you trust their ability to choose to end the life of a baby but not to choose where they put their radio dial.

PAT: Right, unless they choose NPR.

GLENN: Well, that doesn't seem diverse to me.

PAT: Why? Because it doesn't include you? Is that your idea of diversity? You, you will day long? Don't we have that already?

GLENN: No, we ‑‑

PAT: Just think of this ‑‑ just think of it this way, if you would, Mr. Beck, if you are capable of doing it. Having just the NPR single broadcaster option. That will be like having what you eat all day long, one thing.

GLENN: What?

PAT: Jelly doughnuts.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It's a jelly doughnut diet and maybe with some pie to wash it all down. That should make you happy, Mr. Fatty Fat Fatso.

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.
