GLENN: I got a letter from David Barton this morning at about 4:00 in the morning and it is let me just, let me just say this. I hope he doesn't mind. I'm going to read the part of the letter: There is no question this past weekend really got things stirred up. I'm taking a pounding. What else is new. Rabbi Lapin is also getting his brains beat in and several of the other guys have been singled out in the articles, but they are all hanging tough and pushing back, acting like the guys that the Black Robe Regiment would have acted.

That is I share this with you because so it doesn't sound like he's saying poor me. Because let me just read the next line: We're loving it. Our old Texas ad age says that if you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, the one that gets hit the hardest will yell the loudest. We got a lot of them yelling. But I want you to know that being yelped at by wild dogs gets old really fast, especially if you feel like you're alone. I want you to know there are a lot of people that stood on stage at 8/28. Some of them risked their lives. Some of them risked their fortunes. None of them will risk their sacred honor. None of them stood on that stage lightly. None of them. There isn't a soul that went on that stage that didn't have to really search themselves and say what is it that I believe. Even Albert Pujols, he was the guy who I said I think a lot of people will say, oh, my gosh, how did you get him. I asked Albert to do it after meeting him and doing some research on him and listening to Tony LaRussa.

PAT: Tony LaRussa.

GLENN: After listening, after listening to him talk about Albert he must hate that.

PAT: Yeah, I'm sure he does. I'm sure he does.

GLENN: He is such a nice guy, man.

PAT: He is.

GLENN: He is really a nice guy. But we

PAT: He's getting a little beating, too.

GLENN: Yeah, he's what are they saying about him?

PAT: I guess his foundation is being attacked, he's being attacked, the Cardinals are being attacked.

GLENN: What is the name of his foundation?

PAT: That's a good question.

GLENN: Find out what Tony's foundation is. None of these guys took it lightly. They all, they all looked at me and said, Glenn, you are really not going to it's not about politics, right? I said, nope, not at all. This is what it's about. It's about honor, it's about merit, it's about God, restoring the principles that we had. And they none of them, nobody said, sorry. Sarah Palin said, yes, as soon as I said it. I don't think anybody else with the exception of maybe a couple of people in the Black Robe Regiment that said yes right away. They all said, well, let me think about it. Sarah Palin said yes. I called her up, I don't even know if I finished the sentence: Look, I'm doing something in Washington, it's going to be called Restoring Honor and it's going to be happening, and I would really like if you would yes join me. And do it for free. Yes. People like Sarah Palin I think are used to getting hit in the head, but people like Sarah Palin or people like me, we have a side benefit. You know, we get kicked in the head, but we also are on the front of the stage and so we get praised. They don't. These guys are just getting kicked in the head. I would really appreciate it if you would seek these people out that have stood their ground. Rabbi Lapin in Seattle, can you see if you can find his address? Let's get his address and everybody's address, should we do that, his e mail box or something?

STU: I don't know.

GLENN: That may not be a good idea.

STU: That could be could go either way. But we can let's look into it.

GLENN: I just want you to know just, you know what? Here's a better idea. Just pray for them. Just pray for them. Look these people up. And if you can donate to any of their projects, if you believe in them. If you see something and you say, this is good, then please do.

STU: Yeah. Tony LaRussa's Animal Rescue Foundation is a big one and we'll put links to these in the newsletter today. And also the Pujols Family Foundation which is what he got the award for, but two charities.

GLENN: Albert, can I tell you something? He never wavered.

STU: Amazing.

PAT: And it leaked obviously that he was going to be one of the recipients of the award, and he started getting hammered immediately. And they were all over these guys, both Tony and Albert. And they still came. They came anyway.

GLENN: Everybody was freaking out. Somebody in Albert's camp called and said, now, you guys promised but all the press and we said, it's not it's not that. And we really didn't think that he would show. And when he showed up and he came in the tent the next morning, I just looked at him and I said, Albert, I can't thank you enough for standing. And he just looked at me, of course, why wouldn't I.

PAT: Good guy.

GLENN: Really, really a good guy.

PAT: And I am a born again St. Louis Cardinals fan now. Especially with the season the Astros are having.

GLENN: Weren't you

PAT: Done with the Astros. I'm a born again St. Louis Cardinals fan. And they have lost five in a row since the rally. So please support the St. Louis Cardinals this week. Pray for them.

GLENN: Pray for the St. Louis Cardinals and a win. I think God is I think that's up there. Don't you think?

PAT: I think so. I think it's important.

GLENN: It is, it's you know, what you are going to have to do is when I said to you that we have to mutually that we, what is it

PAT: Pledge our

GLENN: No. With firm reliance, with firm reliance on divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor. Part of the thing on the fortunes is we have to start sticking together. Never I don't believe in boycotts. I do believe in, what's a what would be the anti boycott? Using your purchasing power and having it make a difference. And I know you already do that. I know I don't even have to ask you. You know, if you hear a product on this show, don't you know, I don't even have to say this to you. Don't just buy it because we tell you to buy it. And you don't have to be told that. But if you are thinking about one of the products and they advertise on this show and you are like, oh, I was thinking about getting a please buy it from the store or from the people that are advertising on this. These people here, too, are taking great risks. This is the world has changed, and I know you know that. But there are going to be more and more people that stand up, and you did it on Saturday. And do you see the effects that you have when you stand with good, decent people? Do you know how and I didn't take a risk at all, but I think those on the left thought I was taking a risk. I mean, the guy at the NAACP, Jealous said that's such an appropriate name. Jealous said that he just didn't think that, you know, if I mentioned Martin Luther King, he thought that the audience would boo. Well, I knew I wasn't taking a risk. I know you better than that. But we had, you know, 500,000 people there on the mall. Something could have happened. But look what happened. Instead of something bad, something glorious happened. When you get like minded people together, the whole world will change. So as these people took a risk, some of them a life risk. And I believe they are still risking their lives. They are still risking their lives. Because there are those who, like the crazy guy, like the crazy guy yesterday at the Discovery Channel and I don't blame that on the left. I blame that on crazy. There are going to be those people who are going to say, I've got to stop this myself! You just stand with each other and stand with love and stand for peace. And the best story I heard was the people that surrounded the infiltrators at 8/28 and just surrounded them and didn't shout them down: We'll pray for you, we'll pray for you, we love you and we pray for you; we disagree with you but we pray for you, we love you.

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.
