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

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."
