FUSION JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2010

WELCOME

I’d like to kick off the first issue of the new year by offering this heartfelt sentiment to President Barack Obama: Thank you.

OK, wait, that didn’t feel big enough. Let me take another shot at it:

President Obama…THANK YOU!!!

Yeah, that was better.

Just in case you’re wondering, no, I haven’t lost what little sanity I had left and Fusion hasn’t been taken over by liberal New York City vegan Greenpeace hemp weavers. I just think it’s important to thank President Obama because I truly believe he’s helped get this country back on track. NOT through his unchecked power grab and socialist agenda, but by inspiring Americans like you to stand up, remember the ideals that your parents and grandparents taught you and steer this country back on course.

Throughout your life, a huge part of figuring out what you do want is first recognizing what you don’t want. Sometimes we get lucky and realize that what we want is exactly what’s in front of us. For example, Ronal Reagan galvanized the country through strong defense, economic growth and a renewed pride in celebrating the freedom and opportunity that is the birthright of every American. Those were a glorious eight years, and we knew a good thing when we saw it. With President Obama, though, not so much.

See, even when times are tough in this country, they’re still way better than anyplace else on Earth. (I’ll take a bad day in America over the best day Afghanistan ever had.) It can be easy to take our blessings for granted, but then a guy like President Obama comes along and tries to change things so drastically and fundamentally, we get shaken out of our complacency and back to reality.

The president can make all the flowery, impassioned speeches he wants, but you’ve shown that when Obama says, "Yes We Can," you understand that what he’s referring to is his administration’s attempt to turn the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave into a European welfare state and YOU said, "NO YOU CAN’T!"

The tea parties are just the beginning. Our eyes have been opened, and there is a grand American restoration taking place. America is returning to Her founding principles, and it’s because you’ve not only taken notice, you’ve taken action. There’s an enormous contingent of citizens just like you who aim to reshape and retake this country, and it’s growing bigger every day. Hell hath no fury like an American scorned, and we’re on the move to right the wrongs that our own leaders have been trying to shove down our throats. The future looks a whole lot brighter with eyes wide open. It’s people like you who are leading the charge toward the next and greatest chapter in the history of our United States.

Thank you President Obama. We could have done it without you, but you sure made it a whole lot easier.

 

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.
