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.

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

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.

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
