GLENN: Because see, I think they thought that, you know, Glenn Beck because I saw a lot of, Glenn Beck's going to be crying today." No, no, no. That was Patrick Kennedy. He was crying. He was on TV. Do we have that? I'm not crying. I'm actually kind of, I'm kind of sure, I'm disappointed because I really thought, I had this crazy idea that, you know, we the people still mattered to members of the Democratic Party but apparently not. Crazy, old fashioned idea.

But once I got past that, I'm like, good, good, good. Now Americans and I'm going to play the audio for you. Now Americans will know what I said is right. No, no. And you are just not going to shake people off of this now. And you are bringing more people there. You are bringing them! Barack Obama, you yourself said you couldn't govern with 51 votes. You couldn't govern. You didn't even get 51 votes! You had to go through all kinds of tricks. You couldn't even get it done the right way with 51 votes in the Senate! You couldn't do it. So you yourself say you can't govern. You're right. You are right. You are right. Which is weird because also, I think I said about a year ago the good news is these people are radical revolutionaries. They know how to create chaos but they don't know how to govern. Hmmm. Hmmm, that's interesting. It's almost like they don't know how to govern. Which means it's kind of a spooky thing for us which means they have to get more and more dangerous to us. They will reveal themselves because they will become more and more hostile. They will become more and more thug like, more and more dangerous to individuals that stand up. So stick your courage to the sticking place and stand up, jack. Now's the time to be counted. You an American, are you a mouse? Are you European? Is that what you are? I know that my forebearers came here for a reason and it wasn't to be more like Europe. It was to get away from Europe. We've been a different place. So have they turned you into a European, you know, mush mouth? I'm going to lay out some stuff tonight at Fox at 5:00. Yep, we'll see where I'm headed. I think you are going to want to join me. Could be wrong. If you are looking for Obama cash, you are going to have to go find another show. Because this one's not going to be looking for Obama cash. I just don't think you are, either.

Do you have just a quick taste of, just the part where he's crying.

VOICE: And this president stood by. I salute President Obama. He has been the president and even more than my father could have ever imagined. And this speaker that I've supported, Speaker Pelosi, worked hard. She's an unsung hero. Her ambition for children in this country, all of whom are going to get covered under this bill. And my hat is off to her. She's really provided moral and political leadership and worked, worked, worked.

GLENN: Oh, you know what's really great is when you could get your moral leadership from Nancy Pelosi and then get your praise of that moral leadership from a Kennedy, you know we're headed in the right direction.

(OUT 10:20)

GLENN: It's amazing what these people have, what they've done and the trap that they've laid for themselves. You've got all the old people who now are going to be losing their insurance through AARP. How AARP thinks they are going to survive this is beyond me. I mean, it's just, it's incredible. And, you know, it's bipartisan. Yes, the opposition was bipartisan. 34 Democrats joined every single Republican to say no. 34 Democrats. You are right, it is bipartisan. That was it. The rest of them were arm twisted or bought into bribery or they were part of that progressive movement. The only thing that was in lockstep are the Marxists and the progressives and the radicals. That's it. Those are the only ones. But they look good. It's not lockstep as much as goose step which is very, very nice, especially this time of year. Springtime in Hitler for Germany, that whole, that's a snappy number. Anyway, Stu, would you please play the prediction that I made before Scott Brown was elected? Here it is.

STU: This is, yes, this is right before the election, this is the Kennedy audio we're talking about.

GLENN: If you lose Ted Kennedy's seat at this time in history on this issue, how are the rest of the Democrats going to fare in the rest of the country? So if you are dealing with Democrats, here's what's going to happen? Democrats are going to say whoa, whoa, whoa, 1994, we need to triangulate, we need to go back and, you know, we need to be centrists, we need to back off all of this policies. But if they are Saul Alinsky, Marxists, Maoists, progressive revolutionaries, Saul Alinsky teaches step on the gas. He says when you're surrounded, when you're at this point, Saul Alinsky says that's when you accelerate. So let's see what they do. Do they in their actions, not their words, in their actions do they become moderates or do they become Marxists. Do they accelerate? Look at what we're looking at at this point. If Scott Brown wins, Nancy Pelosi has already said we're going to do it anyway. That means in a referendum on healthcare with the deciding vote, if they accelerate like Nancy Pelosi says, that means your voice, your vote doesn't matter.

Let's look at the record. Your voice doesn't matter if Nancy Pelosi accelerates. If they do it anyway, that means you're out of the picture. Now, what they did we're joining back live again. What they did was exactly that. But how did they get Stupak on board? They said just sign an executive order that will usurp the law. That's not the way executive orders work. And if this congress makes it so the president can change the law with a stroke of the pen, that an executive order can override what the law of the land is, congress has created a dictator. Oh, this is going to get fun.

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.
