Ted Cruz: Dave Brat’s ‘stunning’ victory is ‘reverberating’ throughout Congress

The people of Virginia have spoken, and on Tuesday, economics professor Dave Brat defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) in convincing fashion in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. On radio this morning, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who won a surprising election himself just a couple years ago, joined Glenn to discuss the shockwave Brat’s “stunning” victory has sent around Washington, D.C.

“Last night was a stunning election result. The results of last night are reverberating throughout the Capitol and throughout the Congress,” Cruz said. “Eric Cantor is a good man, a smart, capable man, but people across the country are fed up with what's happening in Washington. And they are fed up with the federal government growing and growing and growing, with our national debt getting bigger and bigger and bigger, and with politicians of both parties not listening to the people who elected them.”

While Democrats in Congress and the mainstream media are already trying to paint Brat as an extremist, right-wing Tea Party-type, Glenn asked Cruz how much an upset like this effects the psyche of those in D.C.

“How scared are these guys,” Glenn asked.

“Washington, D.C. didn't want to listen. The fight to make D.C. listen is not an easy fight. There's a reason people job are in power 20, 30 years. They hold on to power, use a lot of money, and they use the entrenched force to try to hold onto it,” Cruz said. “But I'll tell you things like last night get their attention. Things like the Mississippi Senate race get their attention.”

Last week in Mississippi, Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel (R) won the popular vote and forced a runoff against four-decade incumbent Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS). The runoff is set for Tuesday, June 24, and McDaniel continue to enjoy a lead in the polls. These types of things, according to Cruz, get people’s attention.

“I've said many times… I think the biggest divide we have in this country is not between Republicans and Democrats. It is between entrenched politicians in Washington, in both parties and the American people,” Cruz explained. “We've got to get the people to rise up and demand that we get back to basic common sense principle, that we get back to living within our means, not bankrupting the country, following the Constitution, restoring America's leadership in the world. These are basic principals of who we are.”

“Will Washington demagogue anyone standing up for that and call them an extremist? Yes, that's what Washington does,” he continued. “Who cares? We need to focus on energizing and mobilizing the American people to bring our nation back to the first principles of liberty and the Constitution that have made America strong in the first place.”

Glenn also spoke to Cruz about the growing crisis at our southern border. While the Obama Administration has labeled the recent influx of unaccompanied immigrant children a “humanitarian crisis,” Glenn asked Cruz what can be done at this point to halt the Administration’s push for amnesty.

“What is happening right now on the border particularly with kids is heartbreaking,” Cruz said. “And it is the direct consequence of President Obama's lawlessness, his refusal to enforce the law.”

Cruz explained that parents are now handing their children over to drug cartels to help get them into the U.S. In many cases, these children are assaulted – both physically and sexually – and sold into prostitution.

“It should make us weep at the idea of children being handed over to cruel, brutal drug traffickers, and all of this is the direct consequence of when the President of the United States tells people to just send your kids up here and we will let them in and ignore the law,” Cruz said. “Those incentives have produced this humanitarian crisis… I think it's quite likely the President's intention, just like he did a couple years ago, to unilaterally grant another big amnesty because he thinks it will help him politically.”

While the lawlessness of the Obama Administration and so much of what is happening in Washington is cause for frustration and concern, Cruz remains optimistic.

“Let met give you some encouragement, which is: As bad as it is getting… it is waking people up,” Cruz said. “You look at the results in Virginia last night, Dave Brat was outspent almost 50 to 1, and yet the people woke up and said, ‘We're tired of business as usual in Washington.’ Look at the Senate election results in Mississippi, where the fourth longest serving member of the senate is suddenly found himself in a runoff.”

With that in mind, Cruz believes the this midterm election cycle and 2016 are going to be vitally important.

“The biggest thing we can do is rise up and demand that our elected officials in both parties listen to the people… hold every elected official accountable,” he concluded. “And I think 2014 is going to be a very strong election year, but I think 2016's going to be even stronger because sometimes things have to get really bad to startle people out of their slumber.”

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.
