Five Ways Ted Cruz Will Unleash Freedom

What will lessen people's fears and put them at ease about the future? Freedom.

People understand freedom. In fact, they love and crave it. But when there's a wolf hiding around every corner, people are willing to trade their freedom for security. Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn talked about Ted Cruz's "Five for Freedom" plan and how unleashing it will give people both the freedom and security they crave.

CRUZ'S FIVE FOR FREEDOM PLAN

#1 Abolish the IRS

"Imagine how much time you save and everyone saves. There're no more payroll taxes. No more payroll taxes. All that money that you paid in and you might have gotten a refund, you get that all year long," Glenn said.

With decreased costs for business, not only will the businesses have a stronger bottom line, they will create more jobs in the process.

"Here's the amazing thing, if all these companies are able to spend 25 percent of their revenue less in taxes, there's going to be a lot of available jobs for people," said co-host Stu Burguiere.

#2 Abolish the Department of Education

An honest assessment of a federal education system shows it lacking in many areas. Before the Department of Education was created in the 1970s, education was managed at the local level --- returning to that system is the answer.

"So imagine we don't have to deal with with all of the nut stuff that we're dealing with from the federal government. And you have control at the local level of your school. You think your schools get better or worse? Our schools get better, which means our children will be better educated to face what's coming tomorrow," Glenn said.

#3 Abolish the Department of Energy

Regulation adds layers of bureaucracy, significant costs, and wastes time and resources.

"Department of Energy. Cut off the Washington cartel, stop picking winners and losers, and unleash an energy renaissance," Glenn said.

#4 Abolish the Department of Commerce

Cruz actually worked at the Department of Commerce as an attorney. What bothered him every day when he walked into the office?

There are two statues at the Department of Commerce that most people walk by every day without knowing what they represent.

"Ted Cruz is the first person who I've ever met who knows what that means," Glenn said.

Put there during the Great Depression when the Department of Commerce opened is a statue with a powerful, muscular horse. On its back and holding the reigns is a man. What do they represent? The horse represents the free market, and the man holding the reigns represents the government.

What right does government have to hold business back?

Cruz told Glenn, "It drove me nuts walking through the door every day and seeing that thing."

#5 Abolish the Department of Housing and Urban Development

Abolishing HUD will offer real solutions to lift people out of hardship, rather than trapping families in a cycle of poverty. It would empower Americans by promoting the dignity of work. Reforming programs such as Section 8 housing would also help.

"You want to transform America? That's it. That's it," Glenn said.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
