'The Princess Bride' exposes Ted Cruz

Glenn was among the first to recognize Senator Ted Cruz's unique ability to remember and repeat things back exactly how he hears them. On radio Tuesday, Glenn and his co-hosts played some "incriminating" audio of Cruz quoting lines from the film, The Princess Bride that maybe, just maybe puts his "audio-graphic" talent into question.

"We're going to expose him as the fraud that he really is," Glenn said, jokingly.

Listen and decide for yourself. Start at 15:26.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: So glad you're here.

Ted Cruz won't be. We're going to --

PAT: That's for sure.

GLENN: We're going to expose him as the fraud that he really is.

PAT: Man.

GLENN: Now, we've told you about his terrific memory.

PAT: Man, blows the lid off his campaign.

GLENN: I was just going to take him down.

PAT: Oh, boy.

GLENN: We've done our homework. We want to play a little bit of something that happened in Iowa.

PAT: Mr. Memory, they call him.

GLENN: I want you -- is that what they call him?

PAT: That's what they call him.

GLENN: I want you to listen to, if I may, Mr. Memory and what happened in Iowa.

TED: One of my favorite scenes from that movie is if you remember --

PAT: He's talking about Princess Bride.

TED: -- is dead, and they bring him into Billy Crystal to Miracle Max to get a miracle. And Billy Crystal asks, "Well, you know, what is it that they're telling the story of that he needs to live to be with the Princess Bride?" And he doesn't believe their story. And so he blows -- remember, he says, "He's not dead. He's just mostly dead." And then he blows him full and says, "So what is it that you have worth living for?"

(applauding)

PAT: That's a pretty good imitation. But that's not the point.

GLENN: Yeah, it is. That's not the point.

PAT: Disregard that.

GLENN: He didn't come to us as a great Billy Crystal impersonator, did he?

PAT: No, he did not. He came to us as Mr. Memory.

GLENN: Mr. Memory.

STU: Uh-huh.

TED: And Wesley goes, "True love." And Inigo Montoya goes, "You see, he said true love. There's nothing more noble than true love." And Miracle Max goes, "You're right. You're right. There's nothing better than true love, except a nice mutton, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is lean -- (laughter) but that's not what he said. What he said was to blave. And everyone knows to blave means to bluff. And so what happened was he was playing poker, and he was bluffing."

"Liar!"

(laughter)

"Shut up, witch."

"I'm not a witch. I'm your wife. After what you just said, I wish I wasn't.

The problem is he's afraid. Ever since Prince Humperdinck fired him, he's been afraid."

"I told you not to say that name."

"What name? What name?"

"Humperdinck, Humperdinck, Humperdinck."

"I can't hear you!"

GLENN: It's all fun and games at this point. But we want you to listen to the actual film.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Princess Bride.

MIRACLE MAX: Look who knows so much, huh. Well, it just so happens that your friend here is only mostly dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead.

Please, open his mouth.

Now, mostly dead is slightly alive. Now, all dead, well, with all dead, there's usually only one thing that you can do.

INIGO: What's that?

MIRACLE MAX: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

Hey. Hello, in there. Hey. What's so important? What you got here that's worth living for?

VOICE: True love.

INIGO: True love. You heard him? You could not ask for a more noble cause than that.

MIRACLE MAX: Sonny, true love is the greatest thing in the world. Except for a nice MLT, a mutton, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, when the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. They're so perky. I love that.

But that's not what he said!

He distinctly said "to blave." And, as we all know, "to blave" means "to bluff," huh?

GLENN: Stop. Did you hear it?

PAT: Yeah, several lines left out.

GLENN: He distinctly -- he distinctly said to blave. He didn't say "distinctly."

PAT: No, he did not. He left out that word.

GLENN: Mr. Memory completely left out that word.

PAT: This guy is such a liar.

(laughter)

Oh, man.

GLENN: Now, go ahead and play the rest.

MIRACLE MAX: -- playing cards and he cheated.

VOICE: Liar. Liar. Liar!

MIRACLE MAX: Get back, witch.

VOICE: I'm not a witch. I'm your wife. But after what you just said, I'm not even sure I want to be that anymore.

PAT: Okay. All of that is exactly accurate. Isn't it? It's not?

STU: No. Because her line of I don't want to be that anymore. He says something slightly different.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. So there's two things.

PAT: Two words now.

GLENN: This guy can't fit in front of Putin. He couldn't sit in front of Putin.

MIRACLE MAX: You never had it so good.

VALERIE: True love. He said true love, Max. My God. He's afraid. Ever since Prince Humperdinck fired him, his confidence is shattered.

MIRACLE MAX: Why did you say that name? You promised me that you would never say that name.

VALERIE: What? Humperdinck. Humperdinck. Humperdinck. Humperdinck. Humperdinck. Humperdinck.

MIRACLE MAX: I'm not listening.

VALERIE: True love, life expiring and you don't have the decency to say why you won't --

GLENN: He didn't say smoodink (phonetic) or whatever --

PAT: That's three words he left out.

GLENN: Three words.

STU: Now, I can understand him shortening for time reasons. You may not be able to do every line.

GLENN: But this is an important issue.

STU: Come on. It's more than that, Ted. Resign from your Senate seat.

GLENN: You call Ted Cruz's office and tell him we don't want anymore of his Mr. Memory tricks around here.

(laughter)

STU: John Kasich has just launched a super PAC to get that massage across.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Marco Rubio has new spots on him. Did you hear his reenactment of the Princess Bride?

PAT: It wasn't exactly accurate. He doesn't have an audiographic memory.

GLENN: Mr. Memory may be Mr. Lies.

(laughter)

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.
