Arianna Huffington 'confused' by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Back to my original question. What percentage of Americans understand what we're on the verge of? We what do you suppose the percentage of Americans that believe that there are revolutionaries that want revolution, that we are on the eve of profound dramatic change, that we are fundamental transformation is here and it is not it's not an America that you recognize. And that this country can clamp down on media and people that are speaking out overnight. Overnight this stuff happens.

PAT: And if you, if you do speak out and you talk about people like George Soros, who has done this kind of thing

GLENN: Over and over and over.

PAT: Over and over again.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And they are you're called a conspiracy theorist or you're living in a fantasy land like, you know, Arianna Huffington just said about you.

GLENN: What did she say?

PAT: He was living in a fantasy.

HUFFINGTON: (Inaudible). If you would watch Glenn Beck in a fantasy. I mean, he wakes up and decides George Soros runs the world and then works out, you know, a complicated, confusing way of presenting it. It's entertaining. (Inaudible). It's da daism.

GLENN: Da daism. Da daism. Stop.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Stop.

STU: No, I think he got the first thing. I think he wanted the Green Acres thing. Yeah, it was Green Acres he wanted.

(Music playing)

PAT: Da daism. The lizard brains, darling.

GLENN: You know what's amazing? Did you hear what she said? She said complicated, confusing way, but it's entertaining. How can it be entertaining if it's confusing and complicated?

PAT: Right.

STU: Right. And it's complicated and confusing to her. That's because she can't understand.

GLENN: No, she understands. She understands. What did Cass Sunstein say? What did he say about people that would speak out and out the government? What did he say? Make it

PAT: Make them look like they're conspiracy theorists.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: Even if it's true.

GLENN: If it turns out to be true, if you come out against the government

PAT: Oh, it's effective.

GLENN: Make it look like a conspiracy. Discredit them. Even if in the end it turns out to be true. They are doing that. I mean, I don't know why people won't take people at their word. You know what I mean? Listen to their own words. So I want to ask you guys. I say it's only about 10% of the American people that are really, truly awake. Stu?

STU: Uh

GLENN: That really understand. You know, they are not thinking, oh, you know what? Next year could be bad on unemployment. Next year could be off with their heads revolution. May not be but could be. We could see what we're seeing over in Europe next year.

STU: Yeah, if you're talking about riots in the street and stuff like in Europe, yeah. I mean, I think there's 10% of the population that sees that as a legitimate possibility. I mean, not certainly anything that's locked in by any means. We've been able to avoid it mainly so far. But it seems like it's happening over there. And these are not countries, this is not Zimbabwe having these rallies. These are well established, you know, very modernized economies going through these troubles.

GLENN: What is the percentage of people think that their country could be lost, their freedoms could be lost, the media could be lost as we know it? I'd say it's under 10%.

STU: Yeah, I would say under 10% for that, sure.

GLENN: Pat?

PAT: I don't want to get in trouble with Fareed Zakaria. So I'm going to say 1%.

STU: I'm going to say 97% Fareed. 97%.

PAT: Back that up. Back that up, Stu.

STU: Uh oh.

PAT: Back that up. There's 300 million people, 97%

GLENN: How does a country prepare? How does a country prepare? How does a country survive? How does freedom survive if only 10% is vigilant, is willing to say it could happen here?

PAT: What was the percentage in the revolution? They think about 20%. So we just have to wake up another 10 if your figure is right that it's 10%

STU: Not that we're looking for revolution obviously.

PAT: Not that we're looking for, no.

GLENN: No, but they are. They are.

PAT: We're looking to avoid it.

GLENN: Look at this you've got to watch this video on The Blaze. They use the word "Revolution."

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, you know the lady who is overseeing TARP? She's using the word "revolution." She said, you know, this country doesn't come to revolution quickly, but anybody who thinks we haven't moved in that direction is fooling themselves, and she's using that as a good thing.

STU: Jeez.

GLENN: As a good thing. They are they are revolutionaries. Man, when will people wake up to this?

STU: And you have it's difficult because you have the word "Revolutionist" thrown around in so many different contexts and so many different meanings and, you know, you hear

GLENN: No, no.

STU: For example, it was a Ron Paul campaign slogan. I mean, was Ron Paul looking to violently overthrow the government? No. Are people who are, you know, associates of STORM trying to overthrow the government?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Well, yes, they said they wanted to. So I mean, there's two different ways here and

GLENN: Same with WikiLeaks. Same with WikiLeaks. This guy is going to be I mean, you know, even last night I was talking to the Judge and I said, Judge, you know who this guy is. And he said, no, I really don't. You know, I know that he's exposing I said, he's not exposing the government. He's a revolutionary. He is on the far left. He is looking for global revolution, a collapse and chaos. Those are his own words. He's looking for chaos. And he said, well, I didn't know that. And this is the Judge. This is a guy who gets 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.
