Ted Cruz Bodyguards Speak Out, Reveal Cruz's True Character

When Ted Cruz visited Glenn's house on Tuesday, Glenn took the opportunity to thank Cruz's security detail for the job they're doing, keeping the presidential candidate safe. Then, he put them on the spot with a question only they could answer.

"Is he the real deal behind the curtain?" Glenn asked.

Having a personal security detail himself, Glenn is well accustomed to situations where the most private moments are on full display to bodyguards. Glenn elaborated during his radio program on Wednesday.

"You want to know who I am, you talk to my security detail," Glenn said. "They know me because they're with me at my worst and my best, and they see me behind stage and on stage."

Because they have a non-disclosure, security personnel aren't supposed to answer questions like the one Glenn asked. That being said, it was the manner in which they responded, more than the words they spoke, which told Glenn everything he needed to know.

"You can tell by the way people answer or don't answer," Glenn said.

GLENN: I went up to his security detail. And I just went to thank them for the job they're doing, keeping him safe. And then I stood there for a while. Now I know, because my security is with me on my most private moments. They have actually been in -- in the room with me and my wife because they've had to be. Because of situations, it can get tense with my wife and I, or very intimate with my wife and I on delicate things. And so I know -- you want to know who I am, you talk to my security detail.

Now, they have a non-disclosure. So they can't -- but they know me because they're with me at my worst and my best. And they see me behind stage and on stage.

So I'm standing there next to his -- and I know they have a non-disclosure. But you can tell by the way people answer or don't answer.

And I said, "So tell me, is he the real deal behind the curtain? Because I'm never going to see the real deal behind the curtain. In his worst moments, is he the real deal?"

Immediately, without hesitation, they turned to me -- we're standing kind of in a line. They turn to me and walk in front of me and look me in the eye, and one of them -- the first one said, "I have done this for a long time. I've protected all of them. I have never seen a man like him. No matter where he is, no matter what shape he's in, no matter how tired, how pissed off, no matter what the scenario, I've never seen a man as consistently true as him. He says the same thing to your face as to your back. I've never seen him inconsistent." And the other guy just kept shaking his head and said, "This guy is the real deal. He's the real deal." I thought that was --

PAT: That's awesome.

GLENN: That was really awesome.

STU: Yeah, because I asked your security about that and they just looked up at the ceiling and ran away. I thought that was weird.

PAT: Well, they have a non-disclosure. They can't talk about that.

GLENN: Honestly, that's how you would respond. I can't talk about it. That's how you would do it.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
