Sen. Ted Cruz: ‘This is our last and best chance’ to stop Obamacare

On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) about his fight to defund the Affordable Care Act in the Senate. Sen. Cruz is joined by at least 11 other GOP Senators, including Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), in an effort to block a continuing resolution that would fund Obamacare. Such action could result in a government shutdown.

Glenn explained he last saw Sen. Cruz at the Christians United for Israel event in Washington D.C. last week, where both were speakers. “When he walked in, he looked a little haggard, a little tired,” Glenn said. “And he had been spending the day fighting with the Republicans; fighting with the people who are supposed to be on our side. But apparently, they are not on our side.”

“You know, I've been astonished and how many Republicans in Washington want a vote they can say, ‘Look, see I did the right thing but they don't want to actually succeed.’ And you know, we've got a moment of redemption…Where we actually can successfully defund Obamacare,” Sen. Cruz said. “We've got 63 days to do it. And the reason is, the continuing resolution, which funds the federal government, expires on September 30th.”

Sen. Cruz explained that “under no circumstances” would he vote for a continuing resolution that funds “even one single penny of Obamacare.” Despite the support of senators like Marco Rubio (R-FL), James Inhofe (R-OK), and John Thune (R-SD), the Republicans need 41 senators or 218 members of the House to stand up and refuse to fund the healthcare legislation. “We can shut it down in 63 days,” Sen. Cruz said.

“I want you to call your senator,” Glenn said. “The switchboard at the Capitol is 202-224-3121. Call the Capitol now and tell them, enough is enough. You do not fund universal healthcare. Do not fund it through the continuing resolution.”

Obamacare has become politically toxic, with approval ratings down and politicians on both sides of the aisle distancing themselves from the legislation, but Sen. Cruz believes members of Congress are still “scared” to support the defunding of Obamacare. “What I can tell you is there are a lot of Republicans in Washington who are scared,” he said. “They are scared of being beaten up politically.”

Sen. Cruz did provide a seemingly logical alternative for Republicans that would avoid a government shutdown. He suggested the House of Representatives start by passing a continuing resolution that funds the entire federal government, except Obamacare. The resolution would explicitly prohibit the funding of Obmamcare.

“The next step, we’ve seen this play before, is that Harry Reed and President Obama will scream at the top of their lungs, ‘The evil mean, nasty Republicans are trying to shut down the federal government,’” Sen. Cruz explained. “And that's when we need to respond and say, ‘No, we need to stand together and say no. We have voted to fund the federal government. We want to keep the federal government open. Why is president Obama threatening and trying to shut down the federal government, in order to force Obamacare down the people’s throats, particularly when it isn't working?’ If we stand together, that's how we win this fight. But right now, at this instant, we don't have enough Republicans standing together. We got 63 days to do that.”

Lately, it feels like the will and voice of the people goes unanswered in Washington, but Sen. Cruz insisted it will take an overwhelming response from constituents for other GOP senators to get onboard.

“What are the odds of this, what are the chances of this actually happening, Ted,” Glenn asked. “If I'm in my car or my truck I'm thinking to myself, ‘Why am I going to call? It’s not going do make a dam bit of difference anyway. They are all weasels.’ So what are the chances of this?”

“Well, it depends. If we use the traditional ‘please call’ model, the chances are zero. Listen, I can't win this fight. Mike Lee can't win this fight. Marco Rubio can't win this fight. No politician in Washington can win this fight… The votes are against us,” Sen. Cruz said candidly. “This is our last and best chance, I'm convinced, to stop it, which is why it all depends not on any politician, but on the American people rising up in a way we never seen before. That's what's got to happen.”

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
