Ted Cruz: Unleash the Full Force and Fury of the U.S. to Utterly Destroy ISIS

Following the terrorist attack in Brussels, Fox News interviewed Donald Trump for a full forty minutes. What would Trump do if he were president today?

"Well, I would, you know, I guess I would just talk to the people and give them, frankly, a pep talk. You know, we need a pep talk. We need spirit in our country," Trump said.

Sen. Ted Cruz has a markedly different plan which he outlined today via phone on The Glenn Beck Program.

What Would Ted Cruz Do If He Were President Today?

"Well, we don't need a pep talk. What we need is serious leadership that keeps us safe. And the first thing obviously that all of us are doing is we're lifting up in prayer the families of those who were murdered, those who were injured, including especially several Mormon missionaries from Utah, who were among those injured, and our prayers are with them and their families and with everyone who are the victims of this terror attack. But what is most important is that we need a commander-in-chief who will recognize the evil we face, which is radical Islamic terrorism, who will call it by its name, which President Obama refuses to do, and who will unleash the full force and fury of the United States, to utterly destroy and defeat radical Islamic terrorism and to utterly destroy and defeat ISIS."

How Do We Stop Politically Correct Nonsense and Protect Our Borders?

"Sadly, this attack is in many ways the fruit of failed immigration policies in Europe over decades that have allowed vast numbers of radical Islamic terrorists to infiltrate Europe and to endeavor to destroy Europe from within. And it has been tragic and catastrophic. But it also poses an ongoing threat, not only to Europe, but to America. One of the things we need to do in the wake of these attacks is reexamine the Visa Waiver Program. The Visa Waiver Program, which allows people from Europe to come to America with minimal screening, was designed in an era where we didn't believe we had substantial national security threats coming from our friends and allies. Given the decisions of Europe to allow so many radical Islamic terrorists to come in, we need to revisit that and make sure that every refugee coming to America, every person coming to America, is thoroughly vetted so that we are not bringing into this country radical Islamic terrorists who are coming to wage jihad and murder Americans."

Donald Trump Has Stated He'll Rely on Himself and His 'Good Brain' for Foreign Policy Advice. Who Will Advise You on Foreign Affairs?

"Frank [Gaffney] is someone I've known for many years, and he's done serious and very good work, focusing on the threat of radical Islamic terrorism, focusing on the rise of jihadism and the need to combat against it. Both the modern Democratic Party and the press react with fear and trepidation at anyone who would call out jihadists for what they are. And I will apologize to no one for the vigor with which I will defend this country and fight against our enemies to keep us safe. And there are a great many others who are advising me, including Andy McCarthy, who is a tremendous expert, and Jim Talent. And we have a great team of advisers.

"And you noted that Trump said that he's his own policy adviser. Well, I got to tell you, it shows. You know, just yesterday, Donald Trump called publicly for essentially withdrawing from NATO, for abandoning Europe. It's striking that the day after he does that, we see a terror attack in Brussels where NATO is headquartered. And Donald's isolationism and weakness is profoundly dangerous.

"But when it comes to foreign policy, you can see that Donald's foreign policy is guided by --- his exemplars are Jimmy Carter and John Kerry and Hillary Clinton, the left-wing Democrats that he supported financially for 40 years. Withdrawing from NATO, as Donald Trump suggested yesterday, would hand Putin a massive victory. It would hand ISIS a massive victory. ISIS would celebrate."

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

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.
