Glenn Beck: The most important test of your life...

Last night I said to Joe, who is my chief researcher and one of my best friends, and I'll say this to Pat now because he wasn't there last night. I need to study, I need to study the Bible unlike I've ever studied before. And like intense study. And I would recommend the same to you. Intense study, like you are crashing for a the most important test of your life. Because I believe we are headed for the most important test in our life.

I saw this story that just came up from the U.K. Telegraph: Global employment crisis will stir social unrest, warns UN agency. Now, let me ask you: When did the UN become such a fear monger? This is what I've been warning was coming for the last two years when I read The Coming Insurrection. It is a well played and well laid plan. Global unemployment will not recover global employment will not recover to precrisis levels until at least 2015 if the current policies are pursued, creating social tension, says the international labor organization of the UN. The agency said by putting two years from the 2013 to its previous assessment of the time needed to create 22 million jobs, still needed to regain the precrisis level, it will cause more problems. The global economy has started to grow again with encouraging signs. Despite these significant gains, new clouds have emerged on the employment horizon, and the prospects have worsened significantly in many countries.

Do you hear this? For the United States where persistent unemployment has become the main issue in this November's election, the number of jobs still needed to regain precrisis levels is 6.9. Listen to this key line: The extended loss of employment and growing perceptions of unfairness risk increased social tension, according to the UN.

I want you to watch this weekend's rally in Washington, and I want you to ask yourself this question: Is this easing social tensions or is this help creating social tensions? What the 8/28 event did was try to show you a way to ease social tensions. It was a way and this is one of the reasons why I said don't bring signs. Because those increase social tensions. I know you because I do, too. You want to vent. And I know no, I don't. No, I don't. I've been on the radio since I was 13 years old. I don't know what it's like to be you. I can guess, because there have been times that I have been off the radio. And Pat, I think you were off the radio at one time for about a year, weren't you? And there's nothing more frustrating than not having a voice. And so you want to have that sign because that's your chance to say what you've been wanting to say. And I understand that. I do. I can't tell you that I've lived it. I have told I can tell you that I have been off the air for a couple of months in my life and I have thought, how do normal people not explode? I have a chance to vent; they don't. I am asking you now no. I am begging you now that you make the commitment to be a better person than you were yesterday, that you understand the seasons are changing. The time is almost upon us, where you must be a Gandhi. You must be Martin Luther King. You must be a George Washington. You must be the person that can walk into a room and say, gang, it's okay, it's all right; here are the exits. This audience has a special place. This will be remembered, I truly believe this with everything in me. The people that are in the footprint of Mercury, of Glenn Beck, you know, whatever, I hate to use my name in it, but the people who gather together under this umbrella are going to be the ones that save the republic because it's not going to come from fighting, it's not going to come from anything other than knowledge, true, true knowledge, a connection to truth, a connection to God, and a connection to each other for charity.

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.
