From the Horse's Mouth: Why Ted Cruz Missed 'Audit the Fed' Vote

I wrote to Ted last night to ask about his missing the vote on the auditing the Fed.

Many have asked me for a comment. Here's the email I sent to Ted:

Tons of comments.

If you can let's spend five minutes on the phone on air tomorrow or just a comment from you in writing explaining why you would miss something you are for?

Thanks.

This is the reply I received:

Sure.

I strongly support auditing the Fed. Indeed, I was an original co-sponsor of Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill. Unfortunately, it was clear early on that yesterday's vote wasn't going to succeed (it fell 7 votes short). And, at the same time that the vote was scheduled, I had longstanding commitments to be in New Hampshire -- for a Second Amendment rally, and a 1500- person State of the Union town hall. If my vote would have made a difference in it passing, I would have cancelled my campaign events to be there. Because the vote was not going to succeed, I honored my commitments to be with the men and women of New Hampshire.

As President, I look forward to signing Audit the Fed legislation into law.

We talked some more about this on radio. Watch the discussion below.

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

GLENN: So last night, in fact, I just posted this on Facebook. I just got an email in from Ted Cruz. Last night, I wrote to him at -- let's see -- 12:02 a.m. because I got home from the State of the Union, tucked the kids into bed, and then started reading some email and some news. And one of the things was the Audit the Fed vote that happened yesterday. And it fell seven votes shy of passing. And I know this is a big thing with Ted Cruz, and some people were on Facebook last night going, "Glenn Beck, ask him. I notice you're not saying anything about his Audit the Fed Bill that he missed."

I'm like, "I didn't even know it happened today. So I'll ask Ted." So I wrote to him last night, and I attached the emails and the Facebook post.

12:02 a.m. Ted, can I get a comment on the missing of the Fed vote? Tons of comments. If you can spend five minutes on the phone, on the air tomorrow, or just a comment from you in writing explaining why you would miss something that you were really for. Thanks, Glenn.

He just wrote back, 7:50 a.m. Central Time: Glenn, sure. I strongly support auditing the fed. Indeed, I was the original co-sponsor of Ron Paul's Audit the Fed Bill. Unfortunately, it was clear early on that yesterday's vote wasn't going to succeed. It fell seven votes short. At the same time that vote was scheduled, I had a long-standing commitment to be in New Hampshire for a Second Amendment rally and a 1500-person State of the Union townhall.

Ted.

So anybody who wanted a comment on that, there it is from the horse's mouth.

PAT: Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

GLENN: Or just don't. Because that would be weird.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
