Chris Matthews explains why the left is so afraid of Ted Cruz

Even before CNBC blamed the meek jobs numbers on Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) yesterday, MSNBC host Chris Matthews shed some light on why the left is so afraid of the Texas senator. After maligning Sen. Cruz for comments he made during a speaking engagement in San Antonio over the weekend, Matthews explained that Sen. Cruz is the “greatest challenge to progressives.”

“You will laugh at what Ted Cruz actually said to deserve this monologue,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “But listen exactly to what Ted Cruz says at the end, but more importantly, if you want to know why the left is terrified of Ted Cruz, listen, because Chris Matthews says it out loud.”

MATTHEWS: It’s a little weird, but is Chicago part of America? Is Philadelphia -- my hometown where I'm going to address the National Constitution Center tomorrow -- is Philly part of America? Is L.A.? Is San Francisco? Is Austin, Texas? The reason I'm asking this stupid question is because this partisan gunslinger, Ted Cruz, is out there today defining who is and who isn't an American.

Remember Michele Bachmann asking the press on this show to conduct a person to person investigation of who in the U.S. Congress is anti-American? Well, Cruz is worse. The same Senator who suggested the nominee for the Defense Secretary was taking money from the communists in North Korea now decrees what part of this country are in and which parts are out, which parts are American and which parts aren't.

This is McCarthyism writ large. Disagree with this guy and be prepared for the accusations. We are witnessing, I think, the greatest challenge to progressives to moderates and reasonable conservatives in modern memory. It's an indictment against the great majority of Americans. To compromise he says is bad. To support the law he says is wrong. To oppose his brand of right-wing politics is to stand accused by him of being un-American.

“Stop. There it is. Why are they destroying Ted Cruz… You are witnessing the biggest threat to modern progressivism, and liberals, and reasonable conservatives. There are no reasonable conservative standing next to a progressive. There are none,” Glenn said. “That's why they're taking him down – because he is the biggest threat to progressives in modern history. That's fantastic.”

“So he is the biggest threat to progressives. That's why they're after him. But before you jump on the bandwagon, I have to play this partisan gunslinger. The guy who's so partisan his own party is taking him down, and he's standing against both parties. So I guess he's also admitting here that there truly is only one party, the progressive party, and let's remember, that was the goal in the beginning,” Glenn continued. “But before you jump on the bandwagon of Ted Cruz, we have to play the ‘McCarthyism writ large,’ a speech where Ted Cruz was telling people how to judge who's American and who's not?”

MATTHEWS: Cruz returned to his supporters this weekend where he got shouts of approval Saturday night from his most fervent backers. Here he is drawing the line between them and his fellow Senators and, by the way, all the people represented in Washington.

SEN. CRUZ: Having spent the past month up in D.C., it is really great to be back in America.

“There it is. McCarthyism writ large. Did you hear what he said? ‘Great to be back in America.’ May I ask an honest question? Is there a soul outside of the media elite, outside of the social elite, outside of the political elite that actually thinks Washington, D.C… is actually the real America,” Glenn asked. “It's not the real America. They don't have to live under any of the laws. They don't even have to have the healthcare they jam down everyone's throat. That's not America. That's some fairy dust land. That's some kingdom that they have set up.”

“I got to tell you, there's a lot of common sense out there right now and a lot of stuff has been changing,” Glenn concluded. “Have you seen this Ted Cruz guy? This guy is good. He's an American. He'll stand-alone. He'll do it in a heartbeat.”

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
