Rush: If Conservatism Is the Answer, Ted Cruz Is Your Guy

Another big name in conservative radio is seeing the light on Ted Cruz — finally.

"I want to tell you something that Rush Limbaugh said that I was reading last night in the car. And, quite honestly, I mean, it's about time," Glenn said Friday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Glenn went on to share what the legendary talk radio host said about Ted Cruz.

"Limbaugh said that Jeb Bush and John Kasich are moving left as fast as Dion Sanders can backpedal. And he reminded listeners that no conservative would ever have to fret about Ted Cruz suddenly shifting to the left. He said, 'Ted Cruz is the closest in our lifetime to Ronald Reagan. If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz.'"

Rush also had a few things to say about Donald Trump. For example, he said he believes Trump is not ideological, that he doesn't view Charles Schumer as a "screaming liberal" or Ted Cruz as a "screaming conservative."

"In Trump's world, it's just a bunch of incompetent failures," Rush said. "They're a bunch of time-wasting lumps of humanity that have no business doing what they're doing because they're losers."

Glenn went on to quote Rush as saying, "This is why those who view conservatism as the answer have no choice here. Ted Cruz is your guy. There's no one even close."

Thank you, Rush.

GLENN: I am in South Carolina today for Ted Cruz. Spoke to a great crowd last night. I was at Tommy's Ham House this morning, which I've never -- you know, I've never done any political stuff before. And it's just -- it's a different world. It's totally a different world. Running for president is just a crazy, crazy thing. Anyway, they have ten times the ground game here in South Carolina for Ted Cruz. Ten times than what they had in Iowa. And what they had in Iowa was one of the best ground games in American political history. Ten times that today.

They have already knocked on 93,937 doors. They expect to knock on the 100,000th door here in South Carolina sometime today. Some polls are showing that it's very tight. Other polls show it's ten points with Ted Cruz. We'll get into some of those polls a little later. And, of course, Stu has the poll update in hour number three.

Also, I want to tell you something that Rush Limbaugh said that I was reading last night in the car. And, quite honestly, I mean, it's about time. Here's what he said about Ted Cruz. He said -- Limbaugh said that Jeb Bush and John Kasich are moving left as fast as Dion Sanders can backpedal. And he reminded listeners that no conservative would ever have to fret about Ted Cruz suddenly shifting to the left. He said, "Ted Cruz is the closest in our lifetime to Ronald Reagan."

If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz. Because you're exactly right, this is the closest in our lifetime we've ever been to Ronald Reagan. He then pivoted to Donald Trump. And listen to what he said. He said HEP Donald Trump is not an ideological definition of conservatism.

My point all along, quoting Rush Limbaugh. One of my theories was demonstrated. Trump is not ideological. He said, "Trump doesn't view Charles Schumer as a screaming liberal or Cruz as a screaming conservative. In Trump's world, it's not liberalism -- although it is -- in Trump's world, it's just a bunch of incompetent failures. They're a bunch of time-wasting lumps of humanity that have no business doing what they're doing because they're losers. They're kitty cats. Whatever they are, whether they're conservative or liberal or what have you. This is why those who view conservatism as the answer have no choice here." I'm still quoting. "Ted Cruz is your guy. There's no one even close."

That's Ted Cruz -- that's Rush Limbaugh on Ted Cruz.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
