'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)

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
