Memo to Susan Collins: Susan Rice wants your job

When Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp voted "no" on ending the Kavanaugh confirmation debate in the Senate last week, she was praised for "voting her conscience," even though she's not expected to win reelection in North Dakota. Yet, Republican Senator Susan Collins was not praised for voting her conscience because she voted for Kavanaugh. The Left apparently thinks Collins' conscience is less virtuous than Heitkamp's.

Now, Senator Collins may have to deal with more political fallout than any of her Republican senate colleagues. Already, another female is floating the idea of challenging Collins for her Maine Senate seat in 2020 – former President Obama's national security adviser, Susan Rice.

On Sunday, Rice said she'll wait until after the midterm elections to decide whether to run for Collins' senate seat. Rice says Collins, "has betrayed women across this country" with her "yes" vote on Kavanaugh.

Rice says she is thinking about running because of her frustration that Collins "could in a very political fashion not just decide to vote for Kavanaugh but do it in a fashion that was quite dismissive of the concerns of many Americans and many Mainers."

You may be able to accuse Senator Collins of many things, but being "dismissive" of concerns about Kavanaugh is not one of them. Rice obviously didn't listen to Collins' 44-minute speech on Friday in which she thoroughly explained her decision.

Of course, there is one small snag for Susan Rice – the fact that she isn't really from Maine and doesn't live there now.

Of course, there is one small snag for Susan Rice – the fact that she isn't really from Maine and doesn't live there now. But she assured an audience in New York on Sunday that her ties to Maine "are long and deep." As in, she visited her grandparents there every year when she was growing up. And she owns property in Maine. In other words, she's totally qualified.

Rice's other major qualification is that she works for Netflix. Earlier this year, she was named to the Netflix board of directors, which makes perfect sense, because Rice is a video expert. Her main expertise is obscure YouTube videos that have been known to provoke groups of people, even groups of terrorists, to do completely random things out of innocent anger brought on by the YouTube video. You know, things like attacking consulates and killing Americans in places like Benghazi, Libya.

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.
