Parkland Tour: Ready or not, here they come

Get ready for a summer tour coming to your town. 70 stops. Starting in Chicago, then traveling to more than 20 states. To cities in Iowa, Texas, California, South Carolina, and Connecticut. Is it the Eagles? No. The Foo Fighters, maybe? Nope. It's not Journey, or Shania Twain, or anyone you like, really. In fact, it's not even a musical act. Nonetheless, the tour's headliners have forced themselves into the image of Rockstar, and they're bringing their angry, scowling faces and their Che Guevara-bandanas to America. Can you guess who it is now?

RELATED: Hoggish behavior

The ever-more-attention-hungry David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez. They will be leading a tour throughout America. The tour is called: “March for Our Lives: Road to Change." Which would lead you to believe that the pair of teenagers will be marching, but, alas, they'll be taking a bus. That's right, they'll have a tour bus. The tour also has a high-gloss website, featuring tabs for donations and voter registration. There's a national phone-line and a mission statement and a merchandise section and a press section and a media inquiries section, all of which heavily target the NRA. Sounds like the typical behaviors and capacities of two teenagers to me, right? Two teenagers with enough allowance money to travel the country on a tour bus and sell, “March for Our Lives" t-shirts, posters, bandanas, coffee cups, tote bags, books, and baby jerseys—as in, jerseys that are specifically designed for infants.

Here's a bit of the typical teenage slang that the website features:

“We're going to places where the NRA has bought and paid for politicians who refuse to take simple steps to save our lives — and we'll be visiting a number of communities that have been affected by gun violence to meet fellow survivors and use our voices to amplify theirs. At each stop, we'll register young people to vote and educate them on the reforms we need to save lives, and whether their local elected officials support these reforms or support the NRA."

The best way to handle these attention-desperate kids is to just ignore them.

Emma Gonzalez sneers at any critics, using a classic “beg the question" fallacy to whine: “If you don't support this, … it'll look like you're going against kids."

The best way to handle these attention-desperate kids is to just ignore them. They can do what they want. It's just hard when it seems like they're everywhere you look, with a seemingly endless supply of money and screen time.

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.
