GLENN: Let me play a little bit more of what Van Jones said. He was talking

about being in the White House and the things he learned, and he just said that,

you know, people like me with my political views don't get into the White House.

The question that remains unanswered is the question that I said the day after

they fired him: No, don't fire him, I didn't want to fire him. I want to know,

how did he get into the White House! And he's now admitting that, that people

like me don't get into the White House. Now listen.

VAN JONES: and in airplanes, maybe going to Colorado or some place where you've

got a lot of turbulence and you just hope that somebody in the cockpit knows

what they're doing. I was in a cockpit for six months. I got a chance to see

close up, very clearly, the amount of peril the country is in, the challenges

that we're facing. I got a chance to learn that nobody in Washington D.C. has

all the power that they want, including the president, and that there are

informal systems of power that operate. And they operate along racial and other

lines. And we have to be much more sophisticated now. See, we did everything

right. We had six years of one party, authoritarian rule in this country from

2000 2006, and the people in this room did everything right.

GLENN: This is critical. Listen to this.

VAN JONES: We got 60 votes in the Senate, we got Speaker Pelosi, not some

rightwing Democrat speaker Pelosi and

GLENN: Stop. Stop. You hear that? We did everything right. We got the president

in and we got Nancy Pelosi as our Speaker. Not some rightwing Democrat as the

speaker. So his spectrum of political thought is so broad, it goes from the uber

left to the middle left. It doesn't even go to the right left. It doesn't get to

the you ready? Rightwing Democrat. Which, the ones who sold the country out for

healthcare, those rightwing crazies? Which rightwing Democrats did we have? So

he thinks the rightwing of the Democratic Party is extreme. What do you what do

you think he thinks of the Tea Party? It's extreme. Not like extreme, "Oh,

they're bad for the country." No, no. What do you think he thinks of people like

me? Not just he disagrees with the policies. Now, here comes the real part.

VAN JONES: Barack Obama elected president. We did everything right. So standing

flat footed January 2009, everything that we were taught to do we had done and

been successful. And here we are less than 24 months later and most people feel

like the hope bubble burst a long time ago.

GLENN: Here it is.

VAN JONES: Because there's other systems of power that we were not taking

seriously, and they have to do with the media, they have to do with the racial

discourse in the media. And that's the next frontier.

PAT: The media is the next frontier.

GLENN: No, no. No, the media, and do you have the Al Sharpton audio?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: The media and the racial, what did he call it, the racial what of the

media? Approach of the media or whatever. So in other words, what he's saying is

the media is a problem, and the way race is used by the media is a problem. So

that's the next frontier. To use race to shut down the media. Listen.

SHARPTON: We're going to Washington next week to meet with FCC. We're also going

to unveil a petition that we're going to challenge members of congress and the

Senate to sign onto and release on national action network's website who signs

on, who doesn't or who ducks. Because it's very important

PAT: Listen to this.

SHARPTON: for federal officials to take a position not necessarily just on

Limbaugh but on whether or not they agree that anything, whether you are doing

it explicitly or implicitly, against people based on race or gender should be

allowed on federally regulated airwaves.

GLENN: Stop. It is not a coincidence.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Look, the left is very, very good. The right, who do we have? Really who

do we have? We have Ron Paul. He's on the he's on the extreme libertarian side,

who I agree with more and more every day. You have that can really make an

impact. You have Sarah Palin. You have me. You have Rush Limbaugh. Michele

Bachmann. But we're not coordinated. These guys are coordinated.

PAT: You can tell in their language. Listen to them.

GLENN: Exactly.

PAT: They are all saying the same thing.

GLENN: Exactly what they're saying. And you have WikiLeaks being coordinated as

well. They're revolutionaries. This is very well thought out. A genius without a

plan will be beaten every time by an idiot with one. They have a plan. They can

say one thing. It's a solar flare. I'm a solar flare. I'm the same flare coming

out all the time saying this. Why don't people believe me? Because you're not

hearing it from several sources. So I'm a solar flare and they're like, "You

look up and you see that solar flare and you're like, what the heck happened to

the sun." Solar flare. Now, if that it's just that one solar flare going out all

the time, it appears that the sun is unstable. That's why they have coordinated

this movement. One will say it, then someone else will say it, then someone else

will say it, then someone else will say it. That way no one looks unstable.

Haven't you noticed that's what they try to say about me? Oh, he's unstable.

He's unstable. Isolate. Saul Alinsky. Isolate. Why? See, they look unstable.

 

 

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.
