Are Democrats freaking out over a Ted Cruz run?

The progressive wing of the GOP and the mainstream media are trying to downplay Ted Cruz's chances of winning - but has he already got the progressives running scared? Law professor Robbie George, Cruz's adviser at Princeton University, weighed in on claims that Cruz is unfit to be President.

Glenn: Is there any doubt in your mind that Ted Cruz is who we see in Washington?

Prof. George: Well, he’s a man who knows what his principles are, and he sticks by his principles. Now, interestingly, from the time he was a student here at Princeton, he was not a dogmatist. He was a person of very firm convictions, but he was genuinely interested in ideas and would entertain arguments, counter arguments. He was interested in what might be said against the view that he happened to hold, and he would, you know, he’d think about that and think what might be said in response to it.

In fact, since he and I largely agreed and we continue to agree on basic constitutional questions, we found ourselves often in the teacher-pupil relationship playing devil’s advocate with each other taking a position contrary to the one we actually held in order to see how far the argument would go.

If someone just dropped in from the outside and didn’t know anything about the two of us and listened to us arguing these points out, they would have thought we were fierce and bitter opponents. But what we were trying to do is to understand what the truth of the matter is, trying to understand what the truth is by engaging the best points to be made on competing sides of the argument.

Glenn: As they are printing stories today, I saw one headline that says Ted Cruz unfit to be President of the United States. How would you respond to that?

Prof. George: Well, I mean, that’s obviously someone who’s very afraid of Ted Cruz becoming President of the United States, and I think they’re right to be afraid of Ted Cruz becoming President of the United States because he very well could become President the United States. The argument that he’s unelectable, I think, is not a credible argument. People had better think about that. The smart people on the other side, James Carville, for example, have warned their fellow Democrats you’ve got a very formidable person here and a crack debater, a very rigorous thinker, and someone who is not afraid to take a controversial position and not afraid to lead. He’s not going to hold his finger up to the wind and try to figure out which way public opinion is going. He’ll actually try to lead public opinion, and that, as Carville rightly understands, makes him a dangerous man for the Democrats.

Glenn: One last question, I’ve heard several people today claim that he would be the closest thing to Reagan we have seen since Reagan. Is he Reaganesque?

Prof. George: Well, in the sense of being a guy who knows what he stands for and knows what his principles are and will stick with them, yes, he’s Reaganesque in that way. Also, of course, the substance of his views is quite Reaganesque. Now, he’s got a very different personality. It’s not the Reagan personality.

Glenn: Yeah, he’s not the Gipper.

Prof. George: That’s rare. I mean, we get those once a century, I think. Ted does not have that kind of personality, but Ted has the leadership qualities that Reagan has, and he’s a man who knows what he believes, why he believes it, and he’s not afraid to actually lead the public. He doesn’t have to begin with public opinion on his side to know where he stands. He’ll begin wherever public opinion is, and he’ll try to lead it in the direction in which he thinks it should go. That’s what Reagan did as well.

Glenn: Thank you so much, Professor George, always great to talk to you. God bless.

Prof. George: My pleasure, Glenn. Thank you, you too.

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
