The Democrats preplanned antics were straight up embarrassing

A "Goat Rope". Also known as a confusing or disorganized situation. If you're in the military, or a veteran, it's either a Goat Rope or a cluster 'you-know-what'. But if you were paying attention to Capitol Hill yesterday, it was simply called: The Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearing. I'm sorry, I just can't believe this. What a complete dumpster fire this is. It's embarrassing.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley got just a few words into his opening remarks before Democratic Presidential hopefuls began ridiculously interrupting him. You don't even see this type of behavior in Junior High School, but there it was, Senators like Kamala Harris, Corey Booker and Richard Blumenthal were leading their version of an Occupy Wall Street "Mic Check" to shout down Chairman Grassley.

Then, as if on cue, a handful of shrieks could be heard as a platoon of protesters led by Linda Sarsour began yelling and holding up signs in the back of the room.

It was a total sideshow representing the absolute worst in American politics. Politico reported that Democratic Senators held a conference call on Labor Day to decide what kind of charade they wanted to do. The first plan was to stage a massive walkout, but they ditched that plan thinking it would play in the GOP's favor. They eventually agreed on the shout down… a tactic you'll find at basically every leftist protest or riot. Now we have elected officials mimicking groups like Occupy Wall Street within the halls of the Senate. What's next? Mimicking Antifa?

And really… for what? Kavanaugh looks like a liberal compared to Gorsuch, but we never saw these fireworks at his hearing. And the documents that got dumped on them a few hours prior? Seriously? Now you're into reading what's put in front of you? Is it "old and busted" to say things like "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what's in it"?

What about the two thousand two hundred thirty two page Omnibus? Did everyone read that when it was dropped on them a few hours before the vote? Hey, I'm all for reading anything before making a decision. But don't suddenly start caring now when that's never been your policy before.

Democrats just used the Kavanaugh hearings to play like the toddler who decided to lay down in the store, kicking and screaming because mom and dad didn't buy them a toy.

And the documents that they're just so outraged that are being withholden? They know good and well that those documents will never and can never be released. Those papers are controlled by the Bush White House and are communications to the President. More information before making a big decision is always the preference, but the Democrats have chosen to make these documents their rallying cry because they know there's no chance of them ever actually seeing them. It's a red herring.

Goat rope… a cluster… clown car… however you want to describe it. It's all a charade. A temper tantrum to draw attention. Democrats just used the Kavanaugh hearings to play like the toddler who decided to lay down in the store, kicking and screaming because mom and dad didn't buy them a toy.

Welcome to kindergarten.

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.
