Polygraphs are notoriously unreliable, so of course Kavanaugh should take one

The new FBI investigation into the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is mostly pointless. It seems unlikely that another week of digging will unearth the smoking gun evidence that Democrats are desperate to find. But anything besides that will never satisfy them. So, to prepare for the FBI's inconclusive results, they're finding other aspects of this circus to gripe about.

RELATED: Let's stop pretending the accusation against Brett Kavanaugh is credible

Yesterday, Representative Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, insisted Kavanaugh should take a lie detector test. After all, said Cummings, Dr. Ford took one. Sure, the test was paid for by her lawyers and the law firm was recommended to Dr. Ford by Senator Feinstein's office. But other than those factors, it was a totally legitimate lie detector test. Of course, there is the very small issue that lie detector tests are not even close to being 100% accurate.

The American Psychological Association says:

Most psychologists agree that there is little evidence that polygraph tests can accurately detect lies.

Dr. Ford is a psychologist. You'd think she might have put a little less emphasis on her polygraph test.

The question is, why stop at a lie detector test? Especially if they're known not to be 100% accurate. How else can we learn the truth about Kavanaugh? He says he coaches youth basketball for instance, but has anyone given him a written test on basketball rules and strategy? If not, the Judiciary Committee should be ashamed of itself. Such a test would give us a better idea whether he has what it takes to sit on the Supreme Court.

Yes, Kavanaugh has been a federal judge for 12 years, but has anyone actually seen his elementary school report cards? How do we know he even went to elementary school?

Yes, Kavanaugh has been a federal judge for 12 years, but has anyone actually seen his elementary school report cards?

And another thing – according to Kavanaugh's calendar from 1982, he went to see Rocky III and Grease II in the same week. But what's the deeper meaning of that? Is he a Rocky kind of guy or a Grease kind of guy? And how would that impact his opinion on Supreme Court cases?

Sure, he might have a previous Senate confirmation under his belt, hours of new testimony, and written answers to 1,300 questions, but there is so much vital information we still don't know about Kavanaugh.

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.
