Ted Cruz Promises Silver Lining to Obama's Executive Orders

Ted Cruz joined The Glenn Beck Program as a guest on Monday. On the issue of gun control, Senator Cruz addressed President Obama's abuse of office, using the power of executive order to circumvent Congress.

"Well, I'm sorry to say no one is surprised by this latest action by President Obama," said Senator Cruz. "He has spent seven years abusing his constitutional authority, abusing his executive power. And this has been the most anti-gun, most anti-Second Amendment administration in history."

Senator Cruz went on to say how Eric Holder, the previous attorney general, believed it was his job was to "brainwash Americans against guns."

The senator also offered a silver lining to correct this abusive precedent:

"President Obama has used executive power over and over again to abuse his authority, and everything done with executive power can be undone with executive power. And I have pledged on the very first day of my presidency to rescind every single illegal and unconstitutional executive action by Barack Obama," Cruz promised.

GLENN: Okay, So let me go next to the president and his---and his new idea on---on guns, that range anywhere from making sure that that the government can take their own sweet time on background checks, to now circumventing HIPAA, it seems, if there's somebody in your family that has some sort of mental disorder or whatever that the doctors now have to alert the government that those guns might be in dangerous proximity.

TED: Well, I'm sorry to say no one is surprised by this latest action by President Obama. He has spent seven years abusing his constitutional authority, abusing his executive power. And this has been the most anti-gun, most anti-Second Amendment administration in history. We have a president who has done everything he could to restrict our rights to keep and bear arms. The previous attorney general, Eric Holder, said he believed his job was to brainwash Americans against guns. And I fully expect when we see all the details of what he does, that this will be yet another abuse of power.

But there is a silver lining, Glenn. President Obama has used executive power over and over again to abuse his authority, and everything done with executive power can be undone with executive power. And I have pledged on the very first day of my presidency to rescind every single illegal and unconstitutional executive action by Barack Obama.

GLENN: So that led me to this question earlier today. Because I made that point that I can't guess the---you know, I think Hillary Clinton would leave them in. I can't guess what Donald Trump has done. Because he's been on both sides of the issue on gun control. However, you I am very clear on what you would do. So that led me to the question: If Barack Obama knows that he only has, you know, 11 months left, and unless it's Hillary Clinton coming in, why -- why would he do this? Because he knows that if it's a Republican, it's going to be undone.

TED: Well, I think he's betting on two things: Number one, I think it is in his nature to abuse his power right up until the very minute he leaves the Oval Office. I think this is a man who believes in government power. And I think he has an admission he's a true believer. The violation of our Bill of Rights for the last several years has been concerted. It's been organized. And it will continue sadly right up until noon on January 20th, 2017.

But I think secondly, Barack Obama is betting that Republicans will do what we've done in the past, which is nominate a candidate that is not willing to run as a strong conservative, that is not willing to paint in bold colors, that will be cowed by the mainstream media and the Washington cartel. And I think they're betting the next Republican president wouldn't have the courage to rescind these orders.

I can tell you right now, in my view, these orders are not worth the paper they're printed on because they're going away within the first hours after I'm sworn into office on January 20.

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
