Ted Cruz crushes NPR host on climate change

Senator Ted Cruz stopped by to chat with the folks at NPR on Wednesday, and the topic of climate change came up. The interviewer challenged Cruz to give his take on the “broad scientific consensus” that humans caused the current climate change crisis. Cruz delivered an epic response.

“I believe that public policy should follow the science and follow the data," Cruz said. “In the debate over global warming, far too often politicians in Washington and, for that matter, a number of scientists receiving a large number of grants, disregard the science and data and instead push political ideology.”

He then reminded the NPR host when --- 30 or 40 years ago --- liberal politicians and some scientists tried to convince U.S. citizens the problem was global cooling. The host conceded there was “a moment” when some people said that.

Pat Gray shared his reaction to the interview during The Glenn Beck Program Wednesday.

“There was a moment!” Pat quipped. “It was much more than a moment. It was a decade!”

In fact, as co-host Stu Burguiere pointed out, many of the exact same scientists became those now saying catastrophic global warming is coming.

Citing James Hanson as an example, Cruz explained the data didn’t back up the theory of global cooling, so liberal politicians and many scientists switched their theory to global warming. The solution back then was the same as it is now --- government control and intervention.

When asked if he thought climate change was a conspiracy theory, Cruz succinctly replied, “No, this is liberal politicians who want government power --- over the economy, the energy sector and every aspect of our lives.”

Stu added, “It's not a conspiracy. It's just [a case of] never let a crisis go to waste.”

Cruz ended with his usual command of the media:

“Among the Washington elite, global warming is very popular because it makes you feel good about caring for the world,” Cruz said. “But I'll tell you, you know who I'm concerned about? I'm concerned about the single mom waiting tables right now, who for seven years of the Obama economy has been trapped in stagnation. Her wages have been stagnating. It's harder and harder to make ends meet. And what the Washington elites are trying to do is double her energy.”

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
