Is this the real reason Mike Huckabee left his FOX News show?

Mike Huckabee left his FOX News show and seems ready to explore a presidential run for 2016. Is he planning to run? And what does his candidacy mean for serious conservative candidates like Ted Cruz? Glenn took a look at what he believes is really going on and how a Huckabee candidacy helps one person - Jeb Bush.

"So we have Jeb Bush, possibly Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee. This is going to be good," Glenn joked.

"Let me give you some insight on what really happened here. Let's just pretend that I was an adviser to the Republican party. And I cared about the Republican party, which I want to make it very clear, I do not. But let's just say that you're war gaming and you're giving advice to people and you're giving advice to Mike Huckabee and he comes into your office and says, 'Hey, should I run?'"

"If I care about the Republican party as a progressive entity...I'd say 'Oh my gosh, yes.' Not because I think Mike Huckabee has a chance of winning, because he doesn't have a chance of winning, but because Mike Huckabee will bifurcate the vote for Ted Cruz."

After being brutally mocked for using the phrase "bifurcate the vote" rather than "split the vote", Glenn explained what he saw as the biggest obstacles for Ted Cruz, a potential challenger to Jeb Bush. Namely, fellow libertarian-leaning Senator Rand Paul, followed by conservative Christian candidates.

"Ted Cruz is going to get his support from two places. One, constitutionalists and constitutionalists that lean Libertarian," Glenn explained. "Constitutionalists, Libertarians, and faith-based people."

"Split the vote between Huckabee, now Santorum, maybe Romney, to some degree, and Ted Cruz," he explained.

Glenn predicts Rand Paul will have his credibility shredded by the media for being "too radical" while at the same time praising him for not being part of the Christian right. However, they will only do this after Ted Cruz has fallen away as a contender.

"So what they'll do is they'll take Ted Cruz out by chopping up the vote and breaking up the block of the religious vote...take him out by bifurcating the religious vote," Glenn explained.

"Then if there's anything else, divide the Libertarian constitutionalists, let Ted Cruz go away, leave Rand Paul in and then just clean the floor with Rand Paul."

And who wins if Glenn is right?

Jeb Bush.

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
