'Rat' Lindsey Graham Endorses 'Ratatouille' Ted Cruz

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham endorsed Ted Cruz for president on Thursday, raising eyebrows for many who remember Graham as one of Cruz's harshest critics.

Yes, this is the same Lindsey Graham who said Ted Cruz could be shot and killed on the floor of the Senate and nobody would notice. He also said choosing between Cruz and Donald Trump is "like choosing between being shot or poisoned."

Makes total sense right?

Well, not for everybody. Friday on The Glenn Beck Program, co-hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere struggled to understand why Glenn loves the endorsement.

"I heard it yesterday and I'm like, 'This is fantastic,'" Glenn said. "Pat reads it, and he's like, 'He should just shut up.'"

Pat couldn’t help but share what his response would have been.

"Yeah, I said he should tell him, 'No, thank you. No. I mean, that's really sweet and everything. No,'" Pat said.

Ever the pragmatist, Stu eventually came around.

"I mean, it is good that people --- you want the establishment to detest you, but eventually to be okay throwing the money that is donated to, you know, the party. And you want the apparatus behind you, if you can get it," Stu said.

Typically, you wouldn’t want to compare the candidate you are out stumping for to a rat, but Glenn shared his best Ratatouille analogy and took a slight shot at Lindsey Graham in the process.

"Here's you all have to know: In Ratatouille, there's a good rat. And there's some bad rats, okay? Just imagine that the bad rat is Lindsey Graham. Got it? I know that's hard to imagine Lindsey Graham as a nasty, weasely little dirty rat," Glenn said.

"Ratatouille the whole time was saying, 'Hey, I'm going to be a chef, and I'm going to work in the kitchen.' And all of the bad rats were like, 'We're not working in the kitchen. We're rats. We're going to steal the food. That's what we do. We're going to live in the sewers.' And he's like, 'No, we're going to clean our hands, and I'm going to work in the kitchen.'"

It’s actually not too difficult to picture Washington D.C. politicians as rats, but what would be a miracle is to get them all to follow a "chef" that actually knows what he’s doing.

"None of the other rats wanted to work in the kitchen. But at some point at the end, all of the rats were, 'Okay. Put me in the steamer. Clean me. Fluff my hair up. I'll work in the kitchen,'" Glenn said.

Leave it to Stu however, to take the analogy literally.

"But then the country gets their food made by a rat?" Stu said.

"Okay, it's got some holes in it. It's just off the top of my head. It's not something I worked out in advance," Glenn said. "Yeah, they washed their hands. They're fine. And everything works out in the end. I think they lose the restaurant and everything else because there were rats working in the kitchen. But, again, let's not think this through."

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
