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.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
