Is Ted Cruz the new George W. Bush?

Glenn opened the radio program this morning with a satirical special report from one ‘Hans Jorgensen’ allegedly of the Washington Post, who just so happened to sound a lot like Stu. ‘Hans’ joined the program to discuss some important information regarding the implementation of Obamacare. As it turns out, he was really just interested in blaming Republicans, the TEA Party, and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for all of the country’s woes. What else is new?

Watch the parody news report below:

“This is how it will be,” Pat said.

“Of course it will be,” Glenn agreed. “[Cruz] will be the next George W. Bush. He will be the guy now that they blame for absolutely everything. And [the Democrats] are not alone. The Democrats are not the only ones doing this. The Republicans are doing this as well."

The media, Democrats, and establishment Republicans have sought to paint Sen. Cruz as a villain who represents a small minority. Sen. Cruz, meanwhile, has made it clear that he has one mission in Washington, and that is to represent the people of Texas who elected him to this office.

While Capitol Police are investigating online threats made by an individual against the senator, Sen. Cruz returned home to Texas this weekend, where he received a rousing 8-minute standing ovation during an appearance at a San Antonio event.

“That's pretty remarkable,” Glenn said.

From arsonists to anarchists, extremists to teabaggers, Tea Party members and supporters were called every name in the book throughout the government shutdown and debt ceiling debate. During an appearance on MSNBC Saturday morning, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) branded Tea Party members of Congress as “domestic enemies.”

“He has this so upside down. First of all, these people have never been in politics before? That's what our Founders wanted. That's what they wanted. They wanted real people,” Glenn said. “There's mistake number one. Mistake number two, ‘We take an oath to defend our country from all enemies, foreign and domestic.’ No, sir, we don't take that oath. We take the oath to defend our Constitution, not our country. Our Constitution. I mean these guys just can't get it right at all. Ever. Ever. They don't even know what they are talking about because they are career politicians.”

“I mean John Edwards was right, there are two Americas. I mean there weren’t. But this Administration has given us two Americas… There are two Americas, one that's full of people that hate this country that see it as a nightmare and the scrooge of the world. And they don't like the history of America. It comes from the progressive root,” Glenn continued. “That's why the President has made it such a high priority for everybody around the world to see the TEA Party as far right… He's trying to make sure every one understands that anybody who stands up for our Constitution is far right. So they will assume that we are Nazis as well… But what they don't know is the truth always sets you free. The truth always wins.”

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
