Glenn on Ted Cruz: He is a machine

When Glenn opened the radio program this morning at 9am ET, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was more than 18 hours into his epic anti-Obamacare speech on the Senate floor. Sen. Cruz began his crusade at 2:40pm ET on Tuesday, when he announced: “I will rise today in opposition to Obamacare.” He later added that he would speak “until I am no longer able to stand.”

“18 hours, 25 minutes later, Ted Cruz does not have a hair out of place, and he is a machine,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This guy I watched last night on the floor of the Senate and I thought, finally a debate on healthcare and a discussion on healthcare that was reasoned, was telling the truth, wasn't yelling and screaming. It was just, ‘Look, this is the fact. This is what's gonna happen.’”

While this may look and sound like a filibuster, Sen. Cruz’s actions will not actually halt the Senate from voting on the House Continuing Resolution passed on Friday that defunds Obamacare. Cloture had already been filed, and voting will begin today regardless of how long Sen. Cruz goes on.

Over the last 20+ hours, Sen. Cruz has proven time and time again that he is a gifted orator and his ability to continually convey his thoughts without much help. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rand Paul (R-KY), and Mike Lee (R-UT) have all taken part in the speech by asking Sen. Cruz questions – providing much needed relief. Glenn highlighted some of the best moments this morning.

“Here is a year ago Ted Cruz talking about, a year ago, things were different, but times have changed,” Glenn explained.

CRUZ: The argument you make is a serious one, and I would not encourage any member of this body to disregard the commitments they made to their constituents. But I would at the same time encourage every member not just to keep in mind the promises made on the campaign trail, but the ongoing views of your constituents because as circumstances change, all of us respond to change, circumstances including our constituents and so ‑‑

VOICE: Agreed.

CRUZ: One must certainly respect the promises made, but at the same time in the nine months we've been here, in the year since the three of us were active candidates, situation on ObamaCare's changed. Look, I very much opposed ObamaCare a year ago, two years ago, and three years ago. The time it was passed, I thought it was a bad idea. But a year ago the unions didn't oppose it. A year ago the president hadn't granted exemptions for big corporations. A year ago members of congress hadn't gone to the president and asked for an exemption and gotten it. A year ago we hadn't seen companies all over this country forcing people in 29 hours a week. A year ago we hadn't seen one big corporation after another dropping their health insurance coverage, such as UPS telling 15,000 employees "Your spousal coverage is being dropped because of ObamaCare. Your husbands and wives have just lost their coverage." So I would submit, Mr. President, that the circumstances have changed.

“He's doing this without teleprompter,” an impressed Pat said. “I think in most cases he's doing it without notes. These are all things that are off the top of his head – hour after hour after hour.”

One of the more interesting things Sen. Cruz drew attention to was the growing exodous of Congressional staffers because of the impending healthcare regulations.

CRUZ: What does it say about ObamaCare is such a disaster that congressional staffers ‑‑ and mind you, a lot of these congressional staffers who may tender their letters of resignation are staffers working for democratic senators who drafted ObamaCare, who fight for ObamaCare every day, what does it say that staffers would be willing to quit because the quality of healthcare under ObamaCare would be so poor that they would rather go somewhere else rather than be subject to those laws? I think that speaks volumes.

“These are great points that you just don't hear. That's why they've granted… themselves an exception,” Glenn said. “But you don't hear that it's because all of the staffers are quitting. I was so outraged last night… And I kept hearing that they have a special exemption, a special exemption. I know that. I've heard that, but the more you think about it, the more you realize – who do these people think they are? They're granting themselves the exception and we can't have it? We don't have that power. We can't do that. “

Sen. Cruz also reminded Americans that insurance premiums would go down as the result of the Affordable Care Act, but more and more people are realizing that is simply not the case.

CRUZ: You remember when President Obama was defending the ObamaCare bill, he told the American people, he promised the American people, he said, "As a result of ObamaCare, the average family's health insurance premium will drop $2,500." And he said, "That's going to happen by the end of my first term." Now, Madam President, I would point out the president's first term ended nine months ago. And by the end of the president's first term, that promise was proven not just a little off the mark, not just kind of sort of a little bit not entirely accurate. It was proven 100% categorically objectively false. Let me suggest to every American: If your health insurance premiums have dropped $2,500 as the President promised you, as the president promised the average family, so that there would be tens of millions for whom that was true, then I would encourage you to enthusiastically stand up and defend ObamaCare.

Finally, Sen. Cruz acknowledged just how out-of-control this healthcare debacle has become.

CRUZ: And the fact that this body is so torn apart by the notion that each of us would be subject to ObamaCare, subject to the same rules the American people are, it just highlights how broken Washington is.

“Do you see a hair out of place on Ted Cruz? The guy is audio animatronics. He is audio animatronics. Look at him,” Glenn said. “That guy is amazing.”

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.
