HuffPo, There Is No Ego to Heal for Those Who Stood With Cruz

I read this paragraph in the Huffington Post this morning as they wondered if ‪#‎NeverTrump‬ really meant NEVER TRUMP.

Certainly, there is plenty of time between now and November for feelings to change, for bruised egos to heal, for Republicans to talk themselves into supporting Trump. But step back and take stock of what took place on Tuesday. A party finally determined who its presumptive nominee would be — and a good chunk of its commentariat, many of its operatives and even some of its lawmakers collectively hurled.

Here is what so many don't understand: There are no egos on this side. In fact, that is just one of the many problems --- ego. There is no ego to heal for me, nor most of those who stood with Ted.

I slept well last night. I did all I could and so did millions of others. We left it all on the field. The American people made their choice. One that I not only disagree with but one I truly don't even begin to understand. But that is the way the system works.

My choice was made long before Trump was even running. While I do agree with #NeverTrump, there's something I believe to be much bigger and more affirming.

I identify as ‪#‎AlwaysConstitution‬.

That's consistent. That's hopeful. That's positive. That's not tearing down. That's building up.

#AlwaysConstitution.

The GOP hasn't reflected that position, in action, for at least a decade. And so I don't have to be #NeverTrump if Trump is #AlwaysConstitution. I don't have to be #AlwaysCruz if Cruz would become #MostOfTheTimeConstitution. Unless somebody is #AlwaysConstitution, I have to be #NeverWhomever.

It's why I'm #NeverHillary.

And I refuse to play the argument, "a vote for anyone else is a vote for Hillary." No, a vote for the Constitution is always a vote for the Constitution. You can play that game all you want, but I'm 52 years old. I've been playing that game since I could first vote at 18. I'm not playing that game anymore. That's what got us here.

That's not my advice, that's George Washington's advice. So if you'd like to disagree, if you think you're smarter, wiser than George Washington, that's fine. You can believe that. I don't believe you are. I don't believe I am. I believe the father of our country had it down. I'm going to take his advice, not yours, thank you.

I will be #AlwaysConstitution.

We must continue to fight for the rights and the freedom of all mankind, and we must do it with malice toward none and charity toward all.

Today, I call on you to continue to believe in yourself, continue to believe in your country, continue to believe the best of your fellow countrymen --- even though sometimes you wonder. I call you on today to continue and reaffirm your belief that this country was founded through Divine Providence and Divine Providence still exists.

I'm asking you today to find those who seem to have given up, who are misguided about America or their principles. Find those who have no hope, and fill them with the news that our best days still are just ahead of us.

I'm asking to you continue to believe in America as I do. Believe in our principles as I do --- in individual liberty, freedom and equal justice for all. Continue to defend and serve America as I will. Continue to defend and believe in your fellow citizens because, in the end, that's all we are.

Republicans, this is your party. You have to decide who you are. Are you a collection of principles, or are you about a man?

Don't feel lost today. Don't feel disenfranchised. Don't shut yourself up. Because these principles belong to you.

#AlwaysConstitution

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
