GLENN: We have John Holdren now, our science czar, who spoke to a class about the future of America. This is yet another adviser to the president of the United States. Here's what he's telling students.

HOLDREN: We can't expect to be number one in everything indefinitely. One of the most appropriate responses to this degree of levelization of playing field is to cooperate more, to exchange more.

PAT: To cooperate. So we just cooperate with a levelization of the playing field.

GLENN: Explain what he just said.

PAT: He's saying that the rest of the world is caught up with us technologically speaking and economically speaking and I mean, I can play the whole thing in context if you want.

GLENN: It's just hard to understand.

PAT: Yeah. He says so he says we can't expect the United States to be number one in everything indefinitely. The playing field is leveled now and we just need to cooperate with that.

STU: Right. That's one of the best responses to that fact is to cooperate with it.

PAT: Just accept it.

GLENN: Okay. Now, here's the thing.

PAT: Be okay with it.

GLENN: Here's a guy who has wanted the global redistribution of wealth that not only do we take the money from the rich here in America and give it to the poor, we take the money from America and give it to poor nations. He wanted to level the playing field of America so we could be not I mean, he went for the he was for the systematic, I don't even know what you would call it, the commercialization or the dismantling of America to be able to bring it down as a power systematically. Not like I'm for revolution. Just bring it down to the level of the rest of the world so the rest of the world could be equal with us.

PAT: And here's where he talked about sharing our resources and what

HOLDREN: I think ultimately the rate of growth of material consumption is going to have to come down and there's going to have to be a degree of redistribution of how much we consume in terms of energy and material resources in order to leave room for people who are poor to become more prosperous.

PAT: Not only is he okay with it and accepting of it.

GLENN: He advocates it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That is incredible to me. And anybody who, anybody who says that we are we have a government and a president that is looking to rebuild America into a strong nation, you have to ask yourself, where is the person that is leading that charge? Where is that person? Okay, it's not in Andy Stern because he says workers of the world unite. So here you have your chief lobbyist for SEIU and your adviser for the president and a guy who's leading a campaign against me. You have Andy Stern. He says that we're going to have to share the wealth. You have Michelle Obama: We're going to have to share the wealth. You have Ron Bloom, our manufacturing czar: The free market system doesn't work. You have John Holdren, our science czar: Redistribute the wealth, help the poor nations of the world take it away from us. You have, who else, Cass Sunstein: Redistribution of wealth. You have Van Jones: Give them the wealth, give them the wealth. You have Carol Browner, socialist: Redistribution of wealth. Where is the strong free market person? Where is the person that believes in the system? I mean, we keep, we keep hearing that, you know, there's a fundamental transformation of America. To what? To what? I mean, are we going to change into are we going to change into something that we even recognize? Nobody has defined what we're changing into, and all of the people that seem to be the architects or are around the architect come from the Center For American Progress which does not base their existence on the Constitution.

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.
