Glenn Beck: It's a disenfranchisement Monday!


Meet the donkaphant -- part elephant, part donkey and overall just plain creepy. Now you can voice your frustration with the people in Washington, without saying a word - get yours today. Buy Now...

GLENN: The other story on disenfranchisement that we'll talk about today is how they can't solve murders now. The solvable murder rate is going through the floor and it's going through the floor in cities like Washington, D.C. Whoa, you're kidding me. Really? Where it's corrupt, where there's gang members, et cetera, et cetera, and places like Minneapolis. Wow, that's weird. Wait a minute. What's happening in -- isn't Minneapolis the community that has the high rate of Muslim immigrants, in a Muslim immigrant community where we pointed out over a year ago they are forcing these people into silence? They've got a code of silence in the Somali community. It's because of these extremists. They are telling the Somali community, "You can't trust the government," which again I find it very interesting that, did you notice all of the coverage of Barack Obama and his radio interview that he did last week where he called his grandmother the typical white person that had racism bred into her? Yeah, yeah, I didn't see a lot of that coverage, either. It was on one network, Fox. Everybody else, nobody reported it. Isn't that interesting. In a speech where the guy is talking about, being compared to Abraham Lincoln's "A house divided against itself cannot stand," they compare it to that speech but they don't notice that what he's doing is dividing ourselves. He is dividing all of us. That's what he's doing. How is that even possible, that nobody picks up on that?

So disenfranchisement, that's really the theme of today's program because that's going to lead us to all kinds of problems. The disenfranchisement of not just scaring people into silence with the murder rate, scaring people into silence but also teaching them, don't cooperate, don't cooperate with the police, the government is not your friend. It's not just the Somali community. It's not just the gang community. It's not just the Black Panthers. It's also us. We're also doing the same thing. We're also involved in the same thing. I point out to you every day, you can't trust the government. So do I play a role in this? Or does the government play a role? Do we all have personal responsibility? You know what? Because quite honestly I've had it up to here.

There's a story today in The Wall Street Journal that talks about the economy and the banking sector and it says, oh, the stocks may be up, everything may be looking good for the banking sector, but look out; it's a house of cards. Why is that? It's a house of cards because all that's happened is they flooded the system with bogus money. They flooded the system with government money. They haven't allowed anyone to fail.

So I'm going to set up a little rule. You know what? If you're a slimy politician, we throw you out. You're a racist? I call you a racist, and I thought in a consistent society that none of us should deny that that racist existed. If you are a -- if you kill somebody, I'm going to rat on you and you're going to go to jail. You are an illegal alien? We ship you back home and we build a fence. It's not that hard to solve these problems.

When you're a racist and you say that the Government invented AIDS, do you know now that about 50% -- I'll give you the stats on this -- over 50% of the African-American community now believes that the cure of AIDS exists but the Government won't release it because AIDS kills poor people. That's frightening. A house divided against itself cannot fail.

I told you on September 11th, have no fear. No one will ever defeat the United States of America as long as we stand shoulder to shoulder. Well, it's intentionally being clawed at, and it's not necessarily something nefarious like the Bilderbergs all getting together and saying, "Okay, now what do we do." It's also people who are just being greedy. It's also people who have set up these systems like the superdelegates. It's unbelievable. The superdelegate system, I hope that we're going to have this professor on from the University of California Berkeley who is a conservative. I want to know how he got the job. Wrote this great article, I think it was in the New York Times today, that said the superdelegate system is going to tear the country apart, is going to tear the Democratic party apart because what's happening right now is these superdelegates, people who have 10,000 times the power that you have in your vote, are making back room deals right now. They are getting together with Barack Obama, they are getting together with Hillary Clinton and they are saying, okay, you give my town, you give my city, you give my district special whatever, a new water system when you get in to be President of the United States, you back me on that; I'll give you my superdelegate vote. Back room deals.

Well, how do we trust anything? And how did this superdelegate system even begin? Well, good news for you. We've got the history of the superdelegate system. Oh. Oh, this sounds like America. It's all red, white and blue, this story. You ready? Buckle up.

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.
