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.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
