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.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
