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.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
