GLENN: 888 727 BECK. I've got to go back to Barack Obama now who was just making a comment about how, you know, we're going to have chocolate rivers and oompa loompas making candy bars at night.

PAT: You want to start from the beginning of this or you want to start from let's try from the beginning.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Tonight after nearly 100 years of talk and frustration

GLENN: Progressive.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: After decades of trying and a year of sustained effort and debate, the United States congress finally declared that America's workers and America's families

GLENN: Workers are

PRESIDENT OBAMA: and America's small businesses deserve the security of knowing that here in this country neither illness, or accident should endanger the dreams they have worked a lifetime to achieve. Tonight

GLENN: Tonight.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: At a time when the pundits said it was no longer possible.

PAT: That's what they said.

GLENN: I didn't.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We rose above the weight of our politics. We pushed back on the undue influence of special interests.

PAT: There you go, pushed back on the undue influence of special interests like

GLENN: SEIU?

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Kickback on SEIU? I didn't see that. I didn't see any of that.

PAT: I didn't, either.

GLENN: How about the Center For American Progress? Did they push back on the Center For American Progress? How about the Apollo Alliance? Did they push back on that one? How about the AFL CIO?

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: They didn't push back there?

PAT: Uh uh, but

GLENN: How about the prescription drug companies?

PAT: Not really. They kind of made a deal with the prescription drug companies.

GLENN: How about AARP?

PAT: No. Made a deal with AARP. So

GLENN: I'm just trying to figure out

PAT: Caught a couple of special sweetheart deals for pharmaceuticals who then pumped millions of dollars into an ad campaign to get this thing passed. All the while they demonized them behind their backs.

GLENN: But surely, surely

PAT: Maybe that was the pushback.

GLENN: Surely there was no deals with those evil insurance companies.

PAT: No, actually there were some.

GLENN: What was that?

PAT: Yeah, there were some deals with the insurance companies, too.

GLENN: Oh. Oh, I know what he was talking about. There was pushback on the tea party people.

PAT: Yes, that's who he pushed back.

GLENN: Yes, the special interests of you, the American people. You were finally pushed, finally

PAT: I hate that special interest.

GLENN: And if we could just kick you in the ribs it would be good, too, wouldn't it? I can't wait for those people like us to just be kicked in the ribs over and over and over again.

PAT: Or the face. You know, whatever.

GLENN: It's coming. All right. What else did he say?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We didn't give in to mistrust or to cynicism.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Or to fear.

GLENN: Stop, stop, some. Wasn't it SEIU that was going out and calling where was the press when they sent the SEIU thugs out to beat up a black tea partygoer while calling him the N word? Where was the press on that one? Where was the press one? You are right. He didn't give in to fear. The good news is we didn't, either. They didn't give in to cynicism. Cynicism, what would cause cynicism? People saying one thing and doing another? The lack of

PAT: Deals?

GLENN: The lack of transparency, what would cause cynicism?

PAT: Oh, he's been clear about this notion of a lack of transparency.

GLENN: This notion?

PAT: He's been clear about that.

GLENN: Is that what that is?

PAT: It's a notion, yeah.

GLENN: There used to be notion salesman, didn't they?

PAT: Not anymore. He's co opted that word.

GLENN: Unmentionables and notions.

PAT: Really? I thought those were lotions, but no?

GLENN: No, I thought they were notions. Wasn't there notion salesmen? I think so. I don't know.

PAT: It's possible.

GLENN: I didn't live in the early 20th century with all of the evil progressives. So I'm not sure, but anyway, go on with his unmentionables.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Instead we proved that we are still a people capable of doing big things, in tackling our biggest challenges.

GLENN: Wait, hold on just a second. Hold on just a second. Was healthcare our biggest challenge? Was it?

PAT: No, I thought jobs were.

GLENN: I thought jobs were, too. I thought jobs were, too. But Nancy Pelosi came out today and said that she thinks this is going to create all kinds of new entrepreneurial ideas.

PAT: The healthcare bill?

GLENN: Uh huh. I think she's kind of right.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, like how do I get my company and my money out of the country before it's all confiscated. I think that's there's some entrepreneurs working on that right now. How can I set up shop in another country because Charlie Rangel, what a surprise, blocked the door and said you can't leave with your money anymore. Hmmm. What an odd coincidence that was.


 

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.
