Could this be the reason George W. Bush attacked Ted Cruz?

On radio Monday, Glenn pondered out loud what caused former President George W. Bush to single out Senator Ted Cruz with criticizing remarks. Glenn said he thinks it has to do with one of the cases Ted Cruz argued in front of the Supreme Court, which he won, against Bush.

The case involved an illegal Mexican immigrant, José Medellín, who was convicted of brutally raping and murdering Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Peña, two teenagers from Houston, Texas, in June 1993.

Several years after his incarceration, the International Court of Justice called for hearings be held for Medellín, claiming he had been denied his consular rights. It was at this point that then-President Bush involved himself in the case, siding with Mexico and the International Court in 2005.

"It was at this moment that I said, 'There's something wrong here. This guy is not who we think he is,'" Glenn said.

GLENN:, in 1998, Mexican national José Medellín had not informed police at the time of his arrest that he was a Mexican citizen, living in Houston, legally. It was finally discovered. As he sat on death row, he realized the Mexican consulate might be able to help him. The consulate and Mexico filed a lawsuit on behalf of this animal. And in 2004, the International Court of Justice, citing a consulate treaty in the US, had signed onto, ordered hearings for Medellín and other illegal aliens on death row. Texas said, "I don't think so. This guy is a monster." Texas insisted that it adhered to the US Constitution, the Texas State Constitution, and the American Texas State justice systems, not the International Courts of Justice.

Mexico and the International Court demanded a stay of execution in the hearings and trials in Medellín's case. Amazingly, inconceivably, in 2005, George W. Bush steps in and sides with Mexico and the International Court and orders that the hearings be held on his behalf.

Frankly, it was at this moment that was my final straw with George W. Bush. It was at this moment that I said, "There's something wrong here. This guy is not who we think he is." This was my final straw.

So Governor Rick Perry and Texas, again, said no to Bush and the International Court. And the case went all the way to the Supreme Court. It became Medellín vs. Texas.

So what does this have to do with the comment of George W. Bush saying, "I just don't like the guy?"

Arguing the case for the state of Texas and against the brutal killer, Mexico, and the International Court, and George W. Bush, was a 37-year-old solicitor general named Ted Cruz. This is one of the nine cases that he argued in front of the Supreme Court. He won. Texas won. Justice won.

The Supreme Court of the United States ruled that only the Congress of the United States had the right to order hearings to be held. In July 2008, the World Court ordered a stay of Medellín's execution. Governor of Texas, then Rick Perry, argued the state of Texas is not bound to World Court rulings. In other words, "Screw you, World Court, we're Texas."

On August 5th, 2008, after Rick Perry rejected last ditch calls from Mexico and Washington, DC, to stay the execution, this monster José Medellín finally paid for his crimes. Having survived 15 years longer than his two innocent teenage victims. In fact, the 15 years between the time he brutally tortured, raped, and killed those girls was a year longer than Jennifer Ertman's entire life.

But along with Rick Perry, it was Ted Cruz who saw that it was justice that was served against the full frontal efforts and attacks of George W. Bush.

So is this possibly one of the reasons why George Bush says, "I just don't like that guy?" Is that a reason?

I don't know. But I do know this: It's one of the reasons I love Ted Cruz

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

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.
