Breaking bread with friends of all backgrounds and ideologies

This week I have had some pretty remarkable guests on the radio and TV shows. These people can only be described as strange bedfellows indeed, but we going to need to come together on the principles that can unite us if we have any hope of changing the world.

On Thursday, I invited some of my libertarian, religious, writer, entrepreneur, and Silicon Valley friends to join Tania and me for dinner just outside the Mercury Studios 'Think Tank':

Breaking a glass with Rabbi Kula, symbolizing our marriage between faith/values/principles and high tech. Together, those two things will change the world:

Below is a photo of me showing the guests a few things from the history vaults: Handwritten letters on the New Yorker stationary from Nikola Tesla, history behind Edison and filmmaking, the actual Apollo 12 lunar landing maps, rare Disney Epcot material that Walt carried with him the last ten years of his life and more.

Rabbi Irwin Kula is one of the most sincere men I have ever met. He is a liberal rabbi from NYC. At first I didn't want to meet him, nor did he want to meet me. I so strongly feel, now, that he is my brother. He is a different man than when I met him three years ago. Maybe he would say I am as well. I hope so. He is one of the most intelligent, thoughtful, kind, soft spoken, and WIDE AWAKE MEN I have ever met. The spirit is sharing the same messages in all languages to anyone who will listen. He listens with his ears and with his heart.

He took huge risks in an interview with me. Especially about guns. "The left needs to look into people's lives, one mans assault rifle is another mans hobby," he said.

Wow. Brave.

We spoke tonight at dinner about making sure we remove the beam from our own eye before we look for the spec in others. He really gets it and I believe he feels the full weight of what G-d has shown him. Powerful man that needs to be heard and not just in his circle. Pray that he is filled with courage and love. Pray that we all are.

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.
