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."

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences


  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.


  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.


  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
