Glenn tears apart Jeb Bush’s ‘advice’ for Ted Cruz

On radio this morning, Glenn ripped into former Florida Governor Jeb Bush for the remarks he made in an interview with ABC News over the weekend about Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) lacking “self-restraint” in his fight to defund Obamacare.

“All right. So, we have Jeb Bush advising us now on what should be done. And what should be done is – well, we never hear the alternative,” Glenn said. “Could we please play the Jeb Bush audio again because think this is really important to go over.”

Interview begins around the 4-minute mark:

JON KARL: Anything gained in all of this?

JEB BUSH: No, I think there was some ground lost from the political point of view.

JON KARL: And this started with Republicans, mostly in the House saying they wanted to gut Obamacare, and they were willing to not fund the government until that happened. I mean they changed a little bit as it went along. How badly are Republicans hurt by all of this? This started with their strategy.

JEB BUSH: Tactically, it was a mistake to focus on something that couldn't be achieved.

“Since when have we become the party of things that cannot be achieved? I've never been that person. I've never been that person. And I never understood that person,” Glenn said. “We cannot achieve repealing a horrible, quoting the people who built it, train wreck. We can't achieve that? Since when can't we achieve that? Since we've become the party, and since we've become the people that are trained now to think that. ‘Well, you can only do this. This is all you can get’… The repeal of Obamacare is not possible. But what is possible?”

JON KARL: But I just spoke to Ted Cruz. He was the guy who said, ‘Hey, let's not agree to a funding resolution unless Obamacare is defunded.’ That was the strategy that really kicked it off. And he told me that he will now do anything he can to stop Obamacare, and he does not rule out pushing to the brink once again. What would your message be to Ted Cruz?

JEB BUSH: Well, frankly, I think the best way to repeal Obamacare is to have an alternative. We never hear the alternative. We could do this at a much lower cost, with improved quality, based on our free market principles.

“Wouldn't free market principles be repeal it? Free market principles would be to repeal it because his suggestion is, we can do this better. We, meaning the government, can do this better. Those aren't free market principles, my man. Those are government principles. Those are socialist principles. Those are progressive principles. They are fascistic principles. They are communist principles and not free market principles,” Glenn said. “Hear that clearly. That's who Jeb Bush is. It is not possible to not have the government involved in healthcare… It hasn't even started, and you already are at a point where the government officials are all telling you, ‘You can't do this without government.’ We've been doing it without government the whole time and it was working out really well!”

JEB BUSH: And two, show how Obamacare, flawed to its core, doesn't work. So, have a little bit of self-restraint. It might actually be, politically, a better approach to see the massive dysfunction. But we don’t even hear about that because we’ve stepped on that message. And I think Republicans need to just take a step back, show a little self-restraint, and let this happen a little more organically.

“Show a little self restraint? Show how it doesn't work? If you guys would not have been shooting at Ted Cruz, you could have been showing the world how bad it was,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “Now, why didn't you do that? If you wanted to show how bad it is, why wouldn't you do it? Because you want the framework. You want the control. You've just announced that in the sentence before this where you said, ‘We can do it better. We just have to reform it.’ You want control.”

After laboring through this audio from Bush, Glenn had a message for the American people: Enough with the royal families.

“Why do you have royal families? You have royal families because everybody knows they can trust them. The system knows they can trust them. Oh, okay. Well, I know your dad. And because I know your dad, I know what you are going to do, and you are not going off the beaten path because everybody in the family is in on this,” Glenn explained. “Why don't we just start calling them Lord Jeb and Lady Bush, the Duchesses of Houston. Why don’t we call them that? The Kennedy's and the Bush’s. Enough with them. The Kennedy's and the Bush’s.”

Stu made sure that he got one more family, that is more than likely gunning for a return to power in 2016, added to that list

“And the Clintons,” Stu said.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
