Feinstein's false claims prove THIS is all about politics

This is the point in the Brett Kavanaugh saga when our addiction to outrage turns toxic.

The Kavanaugh situation couldn't be any more flammable, yet Senator Dianne Feinstein pulls out a flame-thrower. And she did it yesterday on Twitter – the favorite playground of outrage junkies. She says Republicans are trying to block an FBI investigation into the allegation by California college professor Christine Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in 1982.

RELATED: Well that escalated quickly

Now, as a 26-year veteran of the U.S. Senate, you might think Feinstein would know what kind of things the FBI can investigate. But you'd be wrong. Apparently, she and many of her fellow Democrats don't know, or maybe they just forgot, that the FBI investigates federal crimes. The Feds aren't typically in the habit of looking into suburban high school parties that happened in the 1980s.

To explain to America's lawmakers what the FBI does, the Justice Department issued a statement that says:

The FBI does not make any judgment about the credibility or significance of any allegation. The purpose of a background investigation is to determine whether the nominee could pose a risk to the national security of the United States. The allegation does not involve any potential federal crime.

So, Democrats who were hoping for an epic, Mueller-length investigation into Risky Business-gate, will have to make due with testimony from Kavanaugh and Ford which is now scheduled for next Monday. That is, if Christine Ford agrees to show up. Late yesterday, her lawyers submitted a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee requesting that law enforcement do a full investigation before anyone testifies. It seems like just another delay tactic.

Democrats turned Kavanaugh's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing into an embarrassing circus of sad clown activists. Imagine what they have up their sleeve for Monday's testimony.

The Left is already billing this as a sequel to the 1991 Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas fiasco.

The Left is already billing this as a sequel to the 1991 Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas fiasco. Anita Hill herself wrote in The New York Times yesterday that the committee "has a chance to do better by the country than it did nearly three decades ago."

But if there's one thing we've learned from Hollywood, it's that sequels made thirty years after the original usually suck.

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.
