GLENN: You got to be kidding me, Harry Reed still has a job today? I mean really seriously? I'm thinking about taking a shovel and just digging Nevada out. Just come on, seriously. We'll dig all the way to China if we have to and there's a giant Nevada sized hole in the earth. Come on, we can make water slides out of it and everything else. We can do something with the dirt. Hey, I know. Wouldn't this be great? We can take all the dirt from Nevada and make another state on the western side of California so they lose all that beachfront property.

PAT: Not a bad idea.

GLENN: We can have a conservative state that says what's the hell the is wrong with you California? It could be great we could kill two birds with one stone. May I just say this, what the hell is wrong with you, California?!

Jerry Brown, I would like to today, could you just find out, you know, protocol and everything else because I don't want to do anything to desecrate the flag, but I would like to cut the California star off the flag today. Just in advance. Just in advance because California, what you have now done is you have sealed your fate. If I were living in California because I thought about it this morning in New York. If I were living in California and I was running a business, I would box up all of our stuff and I would put it in a truck and I would drive it well, not to Nevada where would I drive it to? Some place other than a progressive state. California with Jerry Brown, Barbara Boxer. At least they didn't vote for the pot. What else did they do yesterday? You have just guaranteed that you are going to become the first federal state. There will be 49 stars on the flag and what, an extra stripe? What do we do for California? Should we erase the stars as you collapse? Do we take your star off and do we all own you? Because you're not separate anymore, you're not in the union field because you are a federal property. We'll all own you and I have news for you, I ain't bailing your ass out if you are voting for Jerry Brown and these policies, I ain't bailing your ass out. Will you? Stu, will you?

Stu: No, I don't think we should be bailing them out at all.

GLENN: Pat?

PAT: No but I'm not gonna have any choice. If it's this administration when the collapse happens, you know they're going to bail them out.

STU: They're gonna do it anyway.

GLENN: If it's this administration? This administration is practically pulling up and giving limos to everybody in California. I mean, why do you think that this administration won't help that collapse?

STU: Your point was if the collapse occurs in the next two years or let's not say the word six years, but some time in that general near term.

GLENN: Is there any chance that the collapse of California does not happen in the next two to six years?

STU: Sure, there's a chance.

GLENN: I'm sorry just hang on just a second. OW! Man, a monkey was just climbing out of my butt. [ Laughter ] and just flew away.

STU: I'm glad.

GLENN: Jeez!

STU: It's very difficult to predict the future. As you pointed out 100 million times, time lines are the most difficult part to predict of the future. So who knows was going to happen? You know, they certainly don't help themselves. The global warming thing where they were going to delay these disastrous economic policies.

GLENN: Failed.

STU: Failed. Not even close.

GLENN: How do you do all of those things, but you say no to pot? The pot is the easiest one to say yes on. The pot makes it possible for to you say I think Jerry Brown would be great, man, his policies, uh... uh...

PAT: It also helps mask how bad everything is, once he takes over.

GLENN: Yeah, that's what Marvin did. How did you say no to pot but you said yes to everything else?

PAT: Doesn't make any sense.

GLENN: You must be destroyed.

PAT: Was that the dinosaur again?

GLENN: I don't even know what that was. It's more like Arnold Schwarzenegger but he tried even the Terminator tried to destroy it and couldn't do it. Maybe they are indestructible.

STU: That's the point. They made a lot of bad decisions for a really long time to say it will happen this year. Next year, who knows it. It could be another four years, or eight or twelve. But they will continue to make bad decisions.

GLENN: Do you know what they need? What they need is higher spending and higher taxes.

PAT: That's a good idea. Try that one.

GLENN: I bet they will.

PAT: Oh they will.

GLENN: And then what they'll do, is they'll just seize it. They'll start yelling at these companies. These companies, they have money. They just won't part with it.

PAT: They need to get them out of the state of California. Get all the big corporations out of there. Get Silicon Valley out of there.

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.
