This is not a caravan, it's an INVASION

The migrant - you can't see right now but I'm air quoting - "caravan" started off in Honduras with about 2,000 people. It then more than doubled in size to 5,000 strong. As of this morning, there are over 7,000 people making their way North to the U.S. border. The line of people, when they're not riding in the back of several mysteriously paid for trucks, stretches out for over a mile.

I air quoted "caravan" because this is anything but. When was the last time you saw more than seven thousand people, marching towards another countries border, and carrying their own flag? The answer for most of us is never, unless you've served in the military. This is an invasion. There's no other way to describe it.

I've said it before, but this is a Honduran political stunt organized by a leftist group that has ties to the former Marxist president who was exiled after a coup in 2009. They never got over it, and they've been doing political stunts ever since to make the current right wing government look bad. The organizers of this invasion have ties to the Castros in Cuba and Maduro in Venezuela. This stunt is designed for media fallout, and it's timed very specifically for maximum exposure. Early voting for the midterms has already begun.

By the time they reach the U.S. border you'll only see two things on cable news:

1. Election polls and 2. The status at the border.

If the caravan is stopped in Mexico, this could actually help the GOP come November 6th. I mean, is there any greater example for why we need stricter border policies, or even a wall, after seeing all this play out? Mexican immigration officers were completely overwhelmed when the caravan first crossed into Mexico. They could only process about 600 people before the remaining five thousand plus pushed through; some on land while some waded across the water. If these invasion caravans are the new norm, do we have any choice but to build a wall?

This is the same tactic employed by Hamas.

But let's say the caravan reaches our border. Every single media camera will be pointed, not at the migrants, but at the National Guard and U.S. Border Patrol dressed in riot gear. Video will be rolling as tear gas clusters are fired at the waves of people attempting to cross. Pictures will be snapped of people showing off their rubber bullet bruises. It'll be mass chaos. And none of them will be reporting on what the migrants are doing, but rather, how we responded. You know who has to deal with this every day?

Israel.

This is the same tactic employed by Hamas. They charge the Gaza/Israel border with thousands every… single… day. And how does the Western media respond? By vilifying Israel every time. And that's what we can expect if this invasion caravan reaches its destination.

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.
