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."

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
