A Clear Path to Victory for Ted Cruz

After a weekend on the campaign trail with Ted Cruz, Glenn returned invigorated and more positive than ever his guy could become the nominee.

On radio Monday, Glenn laid out just how he envisions the race playing out, with Cruz ending up at the top of the ticket this November.

Listen to the segment below. Start at 4:15.

Rubio and Kasich Must Drop Out

Glenn has been saying this for weeks now, but head-to-head, Cruz destroys Trump --- so narrowing the field to a two-man race is critical. Should this occur, Glenn even suggested the Cruz camp should be fine with losing every race on Tuesday.

"The Cruz campaign, I believe, should be willing to walk away with all losses on Tuesday,” Glenn said. “If Kasich and Rubio get out on Wednesday or Thursday --- if they get out, everything changes because the poll numbers show, in a head-to-head, 61-39 Cruz."

It makes it a little trickier mathematically, but as long as Kasich loses Ohio and Rubio loses Florida, it won't catastrophic if Trump emerges as the one on top. Even assuming Trump wins the other three contests, Glenn showed just how there would still be a path to victory for Cruz.

"Cruz needs to win 80 percent. If he loses everything, he needs to win 80 percent of the [remaining] delegates," Glenn said. "But he's tracking 61-39 currently. He could sweep the rest of the delegates."

Not an ideal scenario, but not the end of the world either.

Ohio Is Still in Play

The key is for Kasich to lose in Ohio, and while polls show he is tied with Trump at 33 percent, Cruz is not far behind at 27 percent and is surging. Why is it so vital for Kasich to lose Ohio? Because winning his home state might cause Kasich, who Glenn said might be delusional, to stay in the race.

“If he wins Ohio, he stays in. My belief is he is so delusional and so much just wanting to be the vice president, anybody's vice president, that he will stay in,” Glenn said.

Whether or not he's delusional, he's certainly not good at math. On Sunday, he told Chuck Todd on Meet the Press he thought he could win 112 percent of the remaining delegates if he were to win Ohio.

If you say so, John.

A Replay of 1968

Glenn has long said 2016 could be a replay of 1968, and as the threat of a brokered convention becomes more realistic, the more the two years look the same. With violence erupting at recent Trump rallies, the evidence of this couldn’t be more clear.

“We've been talking about this for years. Martin Luther King said, you put riots and people who have the dogs and being hit by sticks you put those two things together, and they will choose the right side," Glenn said.

The more people see the stark comparison between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, the more likely they will be to choose Cruz --- which is why a two-man race is so important.

Predicting Tuesday

The polls are tight, but Glenn thinks Cruz will win North Carolina, collecting most of their 72 proportional delegates. Despite trailing by six in Ohio, Glenn has a good feeling Cruz will be the one to nab all 66 of their delegates once the dust settles.

There haven’t been many polls in Missouri, but chances are Trump will win all 52 delegates there, along with the 99 from Florida, where he has a 20-point lead. That leaves Illinois and their 69 winner-take-all delegates, which could be the deciding state in who wins the total delegate count for the day.

As of Monday, Trump has won 44 percent of all delegates and even if he were to win every state on Tuesday, he would still need to win 48 percent of all remaining delegates to reach 1,237 and secure the nomination.

This means he would need to win at a higher rate than he is now.

"The Devil You Know is Better Than the Devil You Don't Know"

The final piece will be the establishment coming together to push Cruz to the finish line. Why would they do that and why would Cruz be ok with it?

“They look at Donald Trump and say, 'I don't know what's going to happen here. It could be really ugly.' And it could even go to fascism," Glenn said. "They look at Ted Cruz, and they're like, 'He's just going to be constitutional. So we know his game because he actually believes this. So we know --- we can at least strategize on that game.' You can't strategize on Trump because he's too unpredictable. He could be a completely different man the day after the election."

That explains the establishment. But as a candidate that has been running against the "Washington Cartel," why would Cruz want this to happen?

"Ted Cruz is beginning to shape up in the establishment as the winner in their minds. It will all be decided if Kasich and Rubio get out on Wednesday," Glenn said. "And Cruz --- they're coming to Cruz on his terms. He's not asking for them."

You might say it will take divine intervention to have this all fall into place, but as a nation built on just that --- that just might be the point.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
