GLENN: We were talking before we went to break a minute ago about the passage of this healthcare bill. Nancy Pelosi is now all of a sudden for it. You know, she's like, you know, that Senate bill, that's pretty sexy, I'm thinking that's pretty good. Of course, it's the fastest way to a single payer healthcare plan. It just is. It will collapse. There's just no way around it. It can't be done. But they're not going to tell you that. This bill will pass before Christmas. I believe they will pass this. What day is Christmas? What day of the week is Christmas?

PAT: 25th.

STU: 25th.

GLENN: Thank you. Oh, is it on the 25th this year?

PAT: Two weeks from today. Two weeks from today.

STU: Yeah, 25th. And then the New Year's is the 1st.

PAT: Of

GLENN: I don't have that. I'm questioning then, I think everybody goes to, everybody will pretty much go to vacation, what, a week, a week from today? I mean, not everybody will, but a lot of people will just go

STU: A lot of people will take that Christmas week off, sure.

GLENN: It will happen a week, you know, the Saturday, a week from tomorrow up to Christmas. Find out when they leave. It's going to happen. I think they are going to pass this thing. While everybody is nestled all snug in their beds with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. It will lessen the blow, they will think, because we'll be gone for three weeks, two weeks. And it will just be, "That's old news, yes, we passed it. The president signed it. What? It was a Christmas Gift to the American people."

Here's what I want to ask you. Look at who's guiding us right now. You know, they came out, Creamer came out yesterday. We told you about Robert Creamer. He is a guy who wrote a progressive book that David Axelrod says is a blueprint for the progressive victories. They have used it did you see the show last night, Pat?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: I mean, I showed, in the monologue I showed exactly what they say and what they're doing. And it is Robert Creamer's plan.

PAT: I thought it was amazing.

GLENN: Amazing.

PAT: The Creamer plan that we just have to say everybody's for this. Everybody's you know, there's total, it's just like what they're doing on climate change. It's total consensus, everybody wants it, we've always wanted it. And then the montage.

GLENN: Of all the people saying that.

PAT: All the Democrats saying that.

GLENN: We played montages last night on the TV show. Do we have the audio? Can we get the audio to play them on the radio?

PAT: That's what I'm starting to look for now.

GLENN: We played these montages last night where, okay, this is Creamer said, "Oh, I don't have any power; they are not doing this." And I said, okay, here's what he says to do and here's what people are doing. And we showed them, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. And it is I mean, some of them are verbatim from the book, verbatim!

PAT: I think it was John Kerry that was exactly.

GLENN: Exactly word for word from the book. All right, the reason why I bring him up is because here's a convicted felon. The progressives are all excusing him because, well, he was just stealing money from the bank, you know, for a good cause. What? We have ACORN. I'm asking you for the character of the people. You have Van Jones. You have communications director that, she thinks of Mao most often. Look at the character of the people. John Holdren, our science czar. If there's a population explosion, I can help you reduce the population, through sterilants in drinking water and forced abortions. Now, he said, "Well, that was at a time when we thought the population explosion, that was in the Seventies and it was a time of the..." but he's never said that it was a crazy idea, never. He says the population thing didn't happen. Not that even if the population thing did happen, we shouldn't put sterilants in drinking water! Look at the character of these people, and I ask you and this is controversial, but why stop now? Do you believe that America has been the greatest gift to man? Over its period of 233 years, we have made colossal mistakes but is it a divine nation, a divine idea, a divine idea the Constitution, would you say that it has done more good than any other nation in the history of planet Earth? We've made mistakes. If you are a God fearing person and I am if you believe good and evil which I do this nation is not going to fade away. This nation is far too powerful. It is far too powerful of a tool in the hands of evil. I have news for you. I believe, because we are a powerful, powerful nation, we're not going to fade away. We're either going to get better and be good or we are going to be a force for great and powerful evil. A powerful tool is only destroyed if there's nothing else to do. But if the opposition side, the side of evil, can turn that and use that and distort that power and distort that source of leadership and use it for the dark side, I mean, I hate to get all Darth Vader on you but that's really who we are. We're either going to be a force for good or we're going to be a force for evil. Let's just hope in the end we turn out to be Luke who might have started losing his hand and everything else and had some decisions. But in the end he stood and said, I am not going to go there. Let's just hope we're that and not the Darth Vader character.

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.
