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

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
