Perish the thought: Ted Cruz’s wife is an Ivy League educated vegetarian working for Goldman Sachs

The New York Times prides itself on providing “all the news that’s fit to print,” and apparently a front-page ‘expose’ on Heidi Nelson Cruz, wife of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), is exactly what the American people need to read today.

“Let me go into the Cruz story here. There's a story on the front page of the New York Times today about Ted Cruz and his wife,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Did you know who his wife is?”

“This is scandalous,” Pat joked.

The article, “Vegetarian M.B.A. Beside G.O.P. Conservative,” is highlighted on the front page of the Times today, and appears in its entirety on page A12. The web edition of the story bears a slightly different headline: “A Wife Committed to Cruz’s Ideals, but a Study in Contrasts to Him.” But it takes just one sentence for the purpose of the article to become crystal clear.

“At first glance, Senator Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi Nelson Cruz, seems to be just the sort of person the Tea Party supporters who celebrate her husband’s anti-establishment positions love to hate,” is how writer Ashley Parker begins the story.

But then comes the most shocking revelation – Mrs. Cruz is a Harvard educated vegetarian who works for Goldman Sachs:

A vegetarian with a Harvard M.B.A., Mrs. Cruz is a managing director at Goldman Sachs, one of the Wall Street firms that helped set off the populist rage that ushered Mr. Cruz into the Senate in 2012. She works for Goldman in Houston, where she lives with the couple’s two young children, and as her husband’s fame has increased — depending on the audience, he is among the most pilloried or revered members of the Senate — she has maintained a low profile.

“She's a vegetarian with a Harvard M.B.A.,” Glenn said shaking his head. “I didn't know he married an educated woman who was a vegetarian! I mean who is the conspiracy theorist here? The New York Times… Why would we hate her? She's a vegetarian? Who cares? She's educated? Good. But it goes further. She's also successful… Why would anyone find this interesting in saying that this is supposed to be really, really bad? Just because you work for Goldman Sachs doesn't make you a bad person.”

As an Ivy League educated, working mother, Mrs. Cruz should be a darling of the left. Instead, the Times awkwardly attempts to contrast her and her husband, which led Glenn to question who had the idea to run this article.

“I'll bet you this story came from a GOP operative,” Glenn said.

“I bet you're right. Stories like this don't generally start from the reporter. And we found that out over the years from people who have attacked you and other sources,” Stu agreed. “And what a lot of times happens is you have people, representatives from a group that does not like [the person] that pitches the story to the reporter, who was very surprised like, ‘You know what we should do is expose how pretty his wife is. His wife is pretty and successful and she doesn't even eat meat!’ I mean, come on!”

“Thank you, New York Times, for exposing the news we really need,” Glenn said sarcastically. “At least somebody's doing their job!”

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:
