Glenn Beck: Media catching on?



TheBlaze: Gibbs -- GOP Holding Non-Existent Tax Bill ‘Hostage’

GLENN: Things are starting to come apart a little bit because those broadcasters that are holed up on the other side of the wall are starting to figure it out and they're like, "Wait a minute, hang on just a second." Of course, those broadcasters who are in on it are like, shhh. But not everyone in the room is in on it, as we found out with Robert Gibbs. Here is Jake Tapper saying, wait a minute, it sounds like maybe a con is going on.

TAPPER: David Axelrod said something that the president has been saying for a long time which is Republicans are holding the middle class tax cuts hostage. As I understand it, Democrats haven't introduced the bill in the Senate and Republicans have. Wouldn't there have to be a bill that Republicans are threatening to block or blocking before anything is being held hostage?

GIBBS: I don't know what bills have been introduced in the Senate. Obviously, I think the the posture of I don't think the bill would have to be the existence of I mean, I think their rhetoric alone, from Senator McConnell and others, have been that the price of there's a $700 billion price tag on moving forward on the tax cuts for the middle class. That's the tax cuts for the wealthy.

TAPPER: So there doesn't have to be an actual

GIBBS: Well, absolutely. And, you know, look, we I've said this it's now been a couple of weeks, obviously, but, you know, we we we agree on we agree on the middle class part of this, or so they say. Their price tag for the middle class was the $700 billion. We could have passed the middle class alone, provided some much needed certainty to to the economy and to middle class families, and had still had plenty of time to debate the $700 billion price tag for for the other cuts.

TAPPER: Why not do that? Why not introduce the bill?

REPORTER: Why not get Republicans on the record?

TAPPER: And and force Republicans to filibuster that?

GIBBS: They were unwilling to do that.

TAPPER: You can introduce the bill is my point. You can introduce the bill.

GIBBS: No, no, guys, what I'm my original answer was I don't think the bill was the existence of

GLENN: Okay. Stop.

PAT: So when that doesn't make sense, he goes back to his original nonsensical answer: It was their posture, it was their rhetoric, someone gave us a look that told us they were going to hold it someone, Boehner raised his eyebrow; we couldn't proceed anymore. You held up the most powerful body in the world with posture and rhetoric? Wow. These Republicans aren't powerful.

GLENN: He doesn't really care about how the system works. He doesn't really understand how the system works apparently. That is the way the system works. You introduce a bill and then you vote on it or you stand for or against it.

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.
