Glenn Beck: Siegfried & Roy weirdness

GLENN: Anyway, here's our seeing Siegfried and Roy update today from the secret life of seeing Siegfried and Roy.  Here's where I ask the audience, do I need to go any further.  When you pick up a book -- when you pick up a book called the secret life of seeing Siegfried and Roy, are you the only one that says, "I don't think it's all that secret."  Maybe it's just me, but I don't think you are really revealing anything, you know, all that big here with the secret life of Siegfried & Roy.  Well, good for you I actually read on because it's not the secret life I thought they might be leading.  This one is about how their beloved tiger Sarah died of kidney failure.  I'm quoting from the book.  "By the time Sarah had gone into rigor mortis, there was no hope of stuffing the huge animal into a tiny furnace so she could be cremated."  Who brought this in to the publisher and went, no, no, no, listen to this story, this is fantastic, from the secret life of Siegfried & Roy.  "But Roy didn't want to hear it.  He wanted the cat cremated and brought back to the house as soon as possible and insisted that the ashes still had to be warm when he got them."  Any concept, any concept on -- I'm trying to figure out why Roy needed the ashes warm.

STU:  You are trying to -- well, I mean, it's possible that maybe, you know, like if you think about it, if you needed it warm, maybe --

GLENN:  No, I don't think I want to know.  No, no, no --

STU:  Perhaps he was rolling --

GLENN:  I don't know.  I don't want to know why they were --

STU:  No, he puts his hands kind of --

GLENN:  I don't -- really I don't --

DAN:  There's really only one explanation, Stu, why it should be warm and that's why when you --

GLENN:  Dan, I don't -- I don't think the audience wants to know what you do with warm cat cremated ashes or what Siegfried & Roy might do with them.

STU:  Wonder what else is in the secret life of Siegfried & Roy?  I wonder if that meant --

GLENN:  Let's not -- so in other words, here's what happened.  The performers told the vet to cut her up and they dismembered the tiger's corpse, cutting off its legs.  Then the tiger went into the fireplace where they cremated the ashes -- or cremated the Tigers, and the ashes went to Roy's -- quoting again from the book -- Roy's private collection.  Of cat ashes?

STU:  I wonder why you would have a private collection of --

GLENN:  Apparently he has the shelves in his bedroom lined up --

STU:  Why would you store them in the bedroom?

GLENN:  Can we stop?  He has the urns lined up in his bedroom each containing the ashes of his dogs and his big cats.

DAN:  If he's got that, what else do you think he's got there?

GLENN:  It could be just me, but I think that's about all of the secrets I care to delve in the secret life of Siegfried & Roy.

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.
