Cruz Showed Trump as a Complete and Outrageous Liar

It was fun to watch Rubio, who had a good night, and Trump spar tonight.

But, as a man who has clearly argued and won court cases in the Supreme Court, Ted Cruz set up Donald Trump for anyone in the press that cares to dismantle Trump on facts, the record and video sound bytes.

Finally someone has prosecuted him using facts and logic.

Ted put him, clearly and calmly, on record in several places, showing him as a complete and outrageous liar.

Rubio spent time on "he inherited his money" and did a good job, but Cruz set him up like a classic movie attorney.

His tax return prosecution was epic. First it was "two years of audit." Then Cruz got him to say "five years are being audited," yet Trump said that he is "audited every year." Which is it? Two years, five years? Or every year? Follow up press! What is he hiding?

Health care was a knock out on Trump lies. Epic and so easy my eleven-year-old could Google and fact-check. I would bet Tedcruz.org already has it up.

Tomorrow we will take the debate and compare fact with fiction.

He also effectively completely showed Trump as a total insider. "I have no doubt that you know politicians better than any of us." Perfect.

Some say that Trump beat Cruz on the Hillary polls. I strongly disagree.

Cruz according to real clear politics and Fox News does beat Hillary. Donald does not. His case of Trump supporting all of Hillary policies was spot on! Trump cannot prosecute the case against Hillary in the general. We will never beat a shady progressive liar with a shady progressive liar.

The Cruz follow up on Trump university and the charge of fraud was epic!!!

This was the huge Google search tonight - and deadly for Trump in a sane world. The charges against Trump in the $40M suit are horrific and totally believable. They are not small potatoes as we will explain tomorrow on radio. They are breathtaking.

***Tomorrow on radio: The audio and not opinion on what was said. Just the audio of the debate followed by the audio of former statements.

Case closed.

I wish Rubio would have joined Cruz on going after Trump before now but it is nice to have him finally join Cruz.

Winner: #1 Rubio and Cruz

Both did very well at showing him as an empty suit.

Rubio won on zingers, Cruz won on substance. Rubio will sell watches on his website (true) and Cruz will have the verifying audio on his website (guess).

#3 kasich (looked above it)

#4 (distant) Carson

#5 (far distant from Carson) Trump

Anyone worried about Trump winning Texas, sleep well tonight.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
