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.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
