GLENN: Juan Williams was put up against the wall and NPR shot him. Here's what he said on Bill O'Reilly, when was it? Tuesday?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Here's what he said.

WILLIAMS: Political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis where you don't address reality. I mean, look, Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country, but when I get on a plane, I've got tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they're identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried, I get nervous. Now, I remember also that when the Times Square bomber was at court, I think this is just last week, he said the war with Muslims, America's war with, is just beginning, first drop of blood. I don't think there's any way to get away from these facts.

GLENN: Okay. He was fired for saying that on FOX. He was fired from NPR. Now, I told you earlier this week that George Soros is funding 100 journalists for NPR, to the tune of $1.8 million. Are those disconnected, that the week after the Tides Foundation, which is funding the Huffington Post's investigative arm, after a week after they declare war on me and moveon.org declares war on me and boycott and all of this stuff, Juan Williams says this, George Soros', you know, $1.8 million is in their hand at NPR, George Soros decides I am coming out and donating another million dollars to Media Matters to stand against Glenn Beck and FOX News. We have to get Glenn Beck off the air and so we will target all of FOX News, on the same day NPR, the recipient of $1.8 million from George Soros fires Juan Williams for having an opinion that you may or may not agree with, but they fire him for that opinion. That is not unrelated. That is a message to everyone in FOX.

 


Vote and Comment: ‘I Said What I Meant to Say’: Juan Williams

PAT: It's not even an opinion he was sharing there. He was sharing his feelings. He was sharing how he feels and you shot him for that.

GLENN: I just this is why I say know what you believe in because you are going to have to make decisions. Do you lose your job? Do you lose everything? Why do you think I've been begging you, please, 40 day and 40 night challenge, with firm reliance, not faith, with firm reliance on the protection of divine providence. What does that mean? It's beyond faith firm reliance. You know it to the core of your being, that you will get protection through divine providence. Everybody calls that coincidence. You will be protected in the line of things that are just going to happen that you won't understand or see coming!

With firm reliance and protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor. I hope none of us have to give up our lives, but some of us may have to give up our freedom. Some of us will give up our fortunes. Some of us will give up our lives as we know 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.
