The Impressive Thing Ted Cruz Said That No One Is Talking About

When Ted Cruz was sworn in as a U.S. Senator he pledged an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Last night at the Republican National Convention, he did just that.

"I was watching last night and, in fact, I wrote to Ted, 'The truth will set you free, but it will make you miserable at first.' I don't know how he felt last night when he walked off the stage, but that couldn't have felt good," Glenn said.

Co-host Stu Burguiere agreed, noting reports that a billionaire Republican donor --- among others --- snubbed Cruz following the speech.

"Sheldon Adelson wouldn't let him in [his suite]. There's going to be a lot of people that don't like this. But to Ted Cruz, it's not about teams. It's not about red shirts versus blue shirts," Stu said.

For Ted Cruz, it's about following the Constitution of the United States and protecting freedom. In fact, in his speech, Cruz said the answer to our troubles is a return the freedoms outlined in the Constitution:

Freedom means recognizing that our Constitution allows states to choose policies that reflect local values. Colorado might decide something different than Texas, New York different than Iowa. That's the way it's supposed to be --- diversity. If not, what's the point of having states to begin with?

Watch this portion of Cruz's speech beginning at mark 9:38:

If we truly followed the Constitution and respected states' rights to set their own laws, according to the wishes of their own citizens, Americans would have 50 unique options on where and how to live.

"He supported the right of gay marriage, should your state approve," Glenn said. "He's not saying, 'That's my choice.' But what did he also say? I've never heard a presidential wannabe ever say anything like this at a GOP convention. 'And, by the way, Colorado, if you want to sell drugs, sell drugs. Texas isn't going to.' That is a fundamental shift back towards the Constitution. He planted the stakes for a constitutional Republican Party."

"Tenth Amendment," co-host Pat Gray said.

"Yes. And that is remarkable. To happen at a presidential campaign, in a conference like that --- never heard that before," Glenn said.

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."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
