GLENN: One is the O'Donnell story where the media is trying to do their best to take down O'Donnell and the establishment is doing it. The establishment has band themselves together. You have the GOP coming out and saying what a horrible candidate O'Donnell is. And quite honestly I think there's something wrong with this. There's something wrong. I mean, okay, really the things that we have on O'Donnell, I guess, is that, what was it? She didn't pay a bill, she's the anti masturbation candidate? I mean, I think I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's probably an okay stance to take. I mean, unless you want to be the, "Hey, I'm with playing for yourself with yourself all the time" candidate.

STU: Well, it's not like she's out advocating for a law to stop masturbation.

PAT: Right.

STU: She's Roman Catholic, that's all.

GLENN: And she's in a church and she made a statement something along the do we have the audio? We should get this today. Where she's making the statement of, hey, you know, maybe that's not the best idea.

STU: Yeah, she said basically, you know, we you know, God says to not have lust in your heart and it's pretty hard to masturbate without lust in our heart. It's not exactly an absurd point. I mean, you know.

GLENN: I mean, it's crazy.

STU: It's a private thing.

GLENN: Right.

STU: You know what I mean? She's advocating a position, essentially a group she's joined in her private life.

GLENN: Look, this is we're pro choice. We're pro choice here on this issue. If that's what you want to do in your own personal life, okay, go for it. I personally work so hard every day that I'm just too tired.

PAT: Really? Do you tell yourself I've got a headache?

GLENN: I've got a headache and a backache.

PAT: I'm sorry, I've got a headache.

GLENN: And I'm too sleepy tonight, honey. I mean, you know, how is this a bad thing to say that, you know, no, I don't think we should all we should maybe go out, talk to someone, have a get a girlfriend, okay?

STU: So that's basically what she said. She's like, you know, if I'm the wife and he's doing that, what does he need me for?

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: That's what she says.

GLENN: And what is tied, what is tied to this? Pornography. Can you show me a study that shows that pornography is good for society, good for the family? It's not. Almost everything that we've got going on in our country right now can be tied with families can be tied directly to pore nothing avenue. It's insidious. So

STU: But you are not pushing for a law to ban it.

GLENN: I don't look.

STU: It's something and that's her point there. She's like, I don't think it's a good thing.

GLENN: Personal responsibility.

STU: My faith says it's not a good thing. Do you not just not Roman Catholics?

PAT: There was another deal, too, and it was a morally

GLENN: Oh, it was the one on Bill Maher.

STU: The Nazi thing which is even more absurd.

PAT: About lying.

STU: Yeah. Basically they said she said quickly that, hey, I don't think you should ever lie. And they said, well, you should never lie? What if you're hiding Jews and there are Nazis there asking you about it? And her answer was, well, look, you know, I think in that situation God would present an opportunity to not lie and save the Jews. Crazy! I mean, it's kind yes, she didn't say she

GLENN: Why is she rounding up Jews and killing them in their basement?

STU: That's essentially what they are saying about her and it makes I think it makes the average person say, look, if they are attacking her with this nonsense, yeah, what's

GLENN: Now here's the thing. There's something wrong here. I don't know what it is, but these guys in the GOP and maybe it's just that she's the straw that broke the camel's back. Or that there's something else that went on between the establishment and her that we're just not aware of. But she's being presented as the worst candidate of all time.

PAT: Well, and you can kind of understand that before the primary happened. You can say, okay, they had a vicious battle to win the primary. I get that. What I don't get

GLENN: There's something else.

PAT: Is something that's happened since the election.

GLENN: There's something else.

PAT: If you're the Republican Party and she's a Republican, you've got to throw everything behind her now.

GLENN: Right. I think it's because she's not going to play ball. And these guys, these Republicans, the establishment Republicans, they're not going to give up. I mean, they will this is my theory on the left. Democrats, you have gotten into bed, there are Democrats, then there are which are fine. Then there are liberal Democrats which are a pain in my neck but they're fine. Then there's the progressive who is not a Democrat, has cloaked himself as a Democrat. The progressive is the beginning of danger. But then you also have the revolutionary. Those are your slices of the Democratic Party. We can negotiate and deal with Democrats and liberal Democrats. Progressives are in both parties and they don't care. They don't care about anything except their own agenda. You want to talk about extremists, it's the progressives and the revolutionaries in the Democratic Party. Real revolutionaries.

Now, you look at O'Donnell. For some reason they are all attacking her and I have to ask myself, has anyone looked at Harry Reid's pet? Now, this is a quote from Harry Reid. He says I'm going to be very honest with you. Chris Coons, everybody knows him in the Democratic caucus. Quote: He's my pet. Let me tell you about him. He's a graduate of Yale Divinity School which should make you freak out if you know anything about Yale Divinity School. Yale Law School, two time national debate champion. He represents two thirds of the state now in elected capacity.

I don't know if you've ever seen him or heard him speak. He's a dynamic speaker. I don't mean loud or long. He's a communicator. So that's how I feel about Delaware. I've always thought Chris Coons was going to win. I told him that and I tried to get him to run. I'm glad he's running. I just think the world of him. Quote: He's my pet, end quote. This is Harry Reid.

Now, will someone look into Chris Coons because we have, and we'll have this story for you in just a few minutes on who he is. The guy's a Marxist. The guy's a staunch anticapitalist. You want to talk about a bad candidate, okay, you can talk about the masturbation thing all you want. Really? Is that what we've turned into in this country?

PAT: Between a Marxist and an antimasturbation candidate? I'm going the antimasturbation every time.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I'm going to go if it's a Marxist and a masturbation, a pro masturbation candidate, I'm going to go with the masturbation man.

STU: You are saying that you think the philosophy of government might be more relevant to an election than the masturbation stance?

GLENN: Yes, I think so.

STU: That's interesting. That's interesting.

GLENN: I think so.

STU: That's a crazy take, Glenn. I don't know where you get that from.

GLENN: Yeah. Oh, the hyperinflation candidate over the hypothetical answer on Hitler candidate, I think I'm going to go with the hypothetical Hitler answer.

STU: You mean the one she said she still wanted to protect the Jews?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: But didn't want to lie about it?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: What a controversial mark!

GLENN: I know, I know. There's something wrong here. And if you happen to be listening and you're in the elite power circles and you don't want anything to do with it anymore, you call us or tip us off because there's something going on here. And maybe it's just that the elites are so hacked off that this is the straw that, you know, broke the camel's back but I don't think so.

STU: Well, you know, some people are saying, look, you know, it went from a heavily favored Republican seat to a heavily favored Democrat seat with that result.

GLENN: Right.

STU: And I still think there's a great chance that she wins because we've seen this happen over and over and over again in this cycle but it could just be that.

GLENN: Let me tell you something. The political class is doing the same thing that they always do. They did it with Marco Rubio. How far up is Marco Rubio?

STU: One poll has him up 16 now.

GLENN: If you A/B Marco Rubio and Crist, you see Marco Rubio is the candidate for Florida. If you A/B Coons, the Marxist, against the masturbation lady, I think we're going to go with the antimasturbation lady.

STU: Really that's not the title you want as a candidate, the masturbation lady?

GLENN: No, I rather have I would rather be known as masturbation man than, Marxist man! If I'm running for president or if I'm running for the Senate, I really think I would be rather known as antimasturbation man.

STU: Not if you are running for president in Cuba. Would you rather be the Marxist man.

PAT: Or the northeast apparently.

STU: Or the northeast.

PAT: Because we've got you know, you've got Sanders, you've got Coons, you've got these people who are just so far left, they are so far out of the mainstream.

GLENN: They are doing the same thing that they did with Barack Obama. They are not even talking about the other candidate.

PAT: No.

GLENN: They are not talking about who he is. You know, the last time and even if she loses, in 1994 Oliver North wanted to run for the Senate. He had been convinced by a bunch of Christian conservatives and people said, you know, these people didn't like the way the Republican establishment and where it was going in Virginia and they said, we have got to grab ahold of the reins in Virginia of the Republican Party. And the Republican Party went crazy because Chuck Robb was the candidate that the Republican thought would, "Oh, really, he... he'll be easily defeated if the right GOP candidate was chosen." Well, the people in Virginia bucked the establishment and they went with Oliver North. And Oliver North went in against Robb in the general election and Oliver North lost. But that's not where the story ends. Look what happened. It changed the debate. It helped Virginia and the Republican Party start to return to its conservative roots. Sometimes you lose a battle but you win the war. She's going to change the debate, if we continue to debate the real issues, which is money. How much money are we spending? Who can we possibly trust to shut that off? Who believes in small government and who believes in redistribution of wealth? That's what this is about. Not whether, you know, behind closed doors you do whatever it is you do. That's up to you and God. That's it. There's a massive game being played and it's being played by the Democrats and the Republicans. And for the good of the republic, I just know, I just know the American people are good and they are awake. Not all of them but they are awake. In the Democratic Party as well they are awake. And whether they go and they cross lines and vote for somebody else, I think they are going to just stay home. I think a lot of them will stay home. Because how do you vote for how do you you can't justify. Normal American Democrats, not the uber left but the normal people, the people like my grandparents were, people like my mother in law was. You know, they just, they're not into this. They're just not into this. They know that this is reckless spending and they are being lied to. And they're in bed with special interests. And they're collapsing the country. They know it. Just like many Republicans knew it when George W. Bush was doing it at the end. Now, the question is can they get past their politics and start looking at the values and principles, and I think yes. But there is an amazing group of people that have assembled to con you into changing what was it that Michelle Obama said? We're going to have to change our history, we're going to have to change our traditions? And one of them is in faith. And we have some amazing audio for you coming up in just a second.

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?

Image source: Simon Dawson/Bloomberg via Getty Images

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.
