It's Time for America to Unite Behind Ted Cruz

The establishment in D.C. --- and the media, for that matter --- just don't get it. They have theirs and, quite frankly, could care less about you and your family.

Ted Cruz had great results on Super Tuesday, with definitive wins in Alaska, Oklahoma and Texas. The actual delegate numbers as of now are Trump 285, Cruz 161, Rubio 87, Kasich 25 and Carson 8. This is truly a two-man race. And it is time for everyone to get out of their dream world and recognize this. Every candidate without a mathematical path to victory must get out and unite behind one candidate.

The establishment wants Marco Rubio to be that guy because he has played in the government. He's become one of them, and the elites in Washington have no intention of changing the status quo. But Marco Rubio has become part of the problem, entrenched with the establishment.

If you've ever been to Washington, D.C., you know the architecture of the buildings. These guys go to work every day in historic buildings and say, 'Dig me. Look how important I am.' And some people in the government actually believe, 'This is never going away. We'll never lose this. We've been through worse times than this.' No, we haven't. Nineteen trillion dollars in debt? No, we haven't. The public as angry as they are now? No, we haven't. The only other time it's been like this was the Civil War. You couple the Civil War with $19 trillion in debt, and it doesn't last.

I heard on Fox News this morning, and I think it was in Oklahoma and Texas, people voted for Cruz because they want an outsider because the government doesn't work. And at Fox News, of all places, they said, 'Well, that's crazy because he's part of the government.' No, he's not part of the government as people understand it. He is fighting the government, as people understand it.

As an "outsider," if Ted Cruz were to get out of the race, many of his voters and numbers would go to Donald Trump, the other "outsider." Nobody is saying that about Marco Rubio. The vast majority of Rubio's votes would go to Cruz.

Here's the way to do it: Ted Cruz should request a meeting with them. (They won't meet with him because they're all too egotistical right now. They all believe that they're somehow or another going to pull this miracle off.) Ted Cruz should offer them --- either in a private meeting or on the air --- to make Marco Rubio his vice president. He should offer to make Ben Carson my HHS person or his Surgeon General. He should offer to make Rand Paul his Treasury Secretary. But, the point is, he should say we're going to move together as one. Because together as one, we can change the world.

For the good of the nation, for those people who say that Trump cannot be the president, Marco Rubio needs to get out of the race. Ted Cruz is the only one that can beat Donald Trump, and he's the only one that will beat Hillary Clinton. And that's not me --- those are the polls.

The candidates and the establishment need to put the people ahead of their own wants and desires. They need to put the right thing for our nation ahead of their own needs and desires. And that's really hard to do. It takes a man of great character to do it.

As I sit in Washington, D.C., I can see the skyline. I'll bet most people don't even know why this isn't a huge skyline. Everything is so expensive in Washington, D.C., and you know how to reduce the costs? You build taller buildings. So, why don't they build taller buildings in Washington, D.C.? It's the Washington Monument.

The buildings in D.C. are low because of the monument to George Washington. This man and his integrity, his love of country and his willingness to serve his entire life at his own expense must be remembered and must be honored. And so we don't let any of the buildings pass the height of the Washington Monument.

But that lesson is forgotten. Too many people don't look to the giants of the past and say, 'This is really about serving people. This is about the people who are struggling every single day. This is about those people that in the winter have a house and put a blanket across the hallway because they can't afford to heat the whole house.'

We have to start thinking about those people, not the people who are in limousines, not the people who are flying on their private jets, not the people who are going to make it.

If the GOP wants to survive, they better start moving as one.

Ted Cruz can beat Donald Trump. If 'We, the People' move as one and unite behind Ted Cruz, he can beat Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. He's the only one who can --- and the American people are the only ones who can put him in that position. Because the Washington elite and the government just don't get it.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

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."
