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.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
