Glenn uncovers Ted Cruz's secret skill allowing him to quote Mitch McConnell exactly

During his visit to Glenn's studio last week for a one on one sit down conversation for TheBlaze TV, Senator Ted Cruz revealed something about the way his brain works most people probably didn't know about.

The skill? "Audiographic memory."

Glenn shared the details of what he learned on radio Wednesday.

"We had this really deep, philosophical kind of conversation about what it means to connect with people," Glenn said.

As Glenn's listeners might attest, Glenn told Cruz he connects with people with the heart, through stories. Cruz on the other hand said he tends to connect with the head, relying on his ability to remember and articulate all kinds of facts.

To that, Glenn questioned Cruz, "You have a photographic memory?"

"No, 'audiographic memory.' It's different," was Cruz's response. "I can remember every conversation exactly the way it happened."

Cruz then explained to Glenn that's what allowed him to put Mitch McConnell on the hot seat.

"He said, 'I can tell you exactly what Mitch McConnell said, and I can tell you it's exact,'" Glenn said.

While Glenn said he thinks having "audiographic memory is a massive plus," Cruz is apparently not comfortable talking about it.

"He's like, 'I just feel like everybody is going to think I'm a robot.' And I'm like, 'Ted, this is not a cross or a burden,'" Glenn said, "This is a good thing!"

GLENN: So when -- when Ted told me this -- and, again, this is just a conversation we're having around the stage here before or after the interview. This is not a -- you know, this is just us sitting here chatting before takes. And I said, "You have a photographic memory?" He said, "No, audiographic memory. It's different." He said, "But when I hear something, and they say, this is what this bill means," he said, "as long as I've heard that bill, I can remember every conversation exactly the way it happened. And I can -- what comes down in my head comes down as file 305, and it's there."

PAT: That's why he could rattle off word-for-word what Mitch McConnell said to him.

GLENN: Correct. He used that as an example. He said, "I can tell you exactly what Mitch McConnell said, and I can tell you it's exact."

PAT: And that's why nobody disputed him. Because they know he's right.

GLENN: Correct. Because they know he's right. So he has this audiographic memory. And he said, "What happens is, when somebody says -- I always look prepared because when somebody says, well, this is what we're going to do." And I'll say, "Well, no, you're actually wrong for these six reasons." He said, "Because that's the way I think." He said, "File 305 comes down, and I can remember it, and six things pop out immediately. And I know, they're wrong six ways. And it makes me look like I'm just blustering. Because who can remember six things out of that?" He's like I can.

PAT: That's impressive though. That's incredible.

GLENN: What he was saying though -- and I was like, "Ted -- he's telling me, and my head is spinning. And he's telling me. "So like when I get down there -- you know, I pause or something because I'm trying to think, how can I say this differently because -- I can repeat what happened to me exactly the same way as it happened every single time." And he's like, "I just feel like everybody is going to think I'm a robot." And I'm like, "Ted, this is not a cross or a burden that the president -- this is a good thing." And he doesn't -- he's not comfortable talking about it. I guess somebody in the Wall Street Journal pointed this out.

JEFFY: Yeah, they talked about him winning the senatorship here in Texas and doing his 21-hour monologue. And they called it his near photographic memory. But as a side note, it also talks about how in high school he traveled around Texas reciting the Constitution and the words of the Founding Fathers. So, I mean, he knows it pretty good.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah, as long as it's been said to him out loud. As long as it's been read out loud, I think even if he reads it out loud, he told me that it imprints on him an audio file. That's -- I mean, are you kidding me? To be able to sit down -- if you could just watch all the tapes of Vladimir Putin, nobody is getting around him, man. You're sitting down, "Actually, no, that's not what you said." Yes, it is. "No, it's not. No, it's not." To have someone with a photographic or, in his case, an audiographic memory is a massive plus. A massive plus.

PAT: If I had to guess, I would think the only other president to probably have something like that would be Thomas Jefferson.

GLENN: Probably.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
