Daniel Lapin: Donald Trump Is God's Plan To Redeem America From The 'Sheer Evil' Of Hillary Clinton

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck sat down with Rabbi Daniel Lapin to discuss Lapin's contention that Donald Trump represents the only hope for saving America.

Beck, of course, has been a consistent and vocal critic of Trump and has repeatedly vowed never to vote for him, but Lapin did his best to sway Beck away from this position by bizarrely claiming that the Bible says that it is okay to behave unscrupulously when dealing with unscrupulous people.

Citing the passage from Genesis where Jacob meets Rachel, Lapin told some story that does not actually appear in the Bible but which he claimed gives believers permission to ignore their own moral principles when confronted with immoral situations. 

As Lapin told it, when Jacob met Rachel, she warned him that her father, Laban, was a notorious scoundrel who could not be trusted. Jacob's response, according to Lapin, was that he would be her father's "brother in scoundrelhood." Lapin said that Jacob then quoted a passage from Scripture that says "do not get involved with unscrupulous people, but should you inadvertently find yourself with unscrupulous people, then you don't have to allow your scruples to bring about your defeat."

The message of this passage, Lapin said, applies directly to the election in November and means that since those who are seeking to defend the Constitution are going up against "someone with limitless ambition, limitless avarice and a complete absence of any kind of scruple" in Hillary Clinton, they are not bound by any moral law that obligates them to play fair if it is going to lead to defeat.

Beck, understandably, couldn't quite believe what he was hearing, which prompted Lapin to explain that he simply refuses to accept that God has given up on this nation and since Clinton is "sheer evil," the only alternative is to believe that God has raised up someone as ruthless as Trump as the final hope for redeeming America.

'I Think It's Wrong': Glenn Beck Doesn't Even Believe His Own Conspiracy Theory About The Clinton Email Controversy

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck laid out a new theory about the email controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton that he admitted he had just made up 20 minutes earlier and was probably entirely wrong ... but which he proceeded to float nonetheless.

Acknowledging that he was making this up off the top of his head, Beck asserted that the Obama administration has tried to cover up every scandal it has been involved in except for this one involving Clinton, which he speculated was because she is not radical enough for President Obama and so he's trying to destroy her presidential campaign in order to benefit Bernie Sanders.

"I think it's wrong," Beck said of his own theory even as he unveiled it, declaring that Clinton, unlike Obama, is not a full-blown radical Marxist and so the president is trying to sink her campaign.

"I think you could make a case, a bad case," Beck said, "that he's looking for an ideologue to replace him. He's done the work of bringing this country to the brink of Marxism and he's not going to have it flushed away by Hillary Clinton."

As such, Beck said, Obama may be trying to tank Clinton's chances so that the Democrats will nominate Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren and finish the job. 

Beck admitted that his theory was entirely implausible and that he has been wrong about everything for the last year, but said he was just "thinking out loud" because "anything is possible."

David Clarke: Department of Justice Hates Cops, Supports Criminals

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, a rising conservative media star and Fox News regular, said on his radio show on Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze Radio Network on Saturday that President Obama is “a straight-up cop hater” and accused the Department of Justice’s civil rights division of being “jack-booted goons” who are lying in wait to go after police officers.

Clarke reminisced about the pre-Obama days when, he said, the DOJ was on the side of the police officers, not the criminals. Today, Clarke said several times, the DOJ hates cops.

Claiming that the DOJ is leading an “ongoing witch-hunt” against police officers, Clarke called Obama “a straight-up cop hater” and referred to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and her predecessor, Eric Holder, as “race-obsessed.”

Clarke specifically criticized the civil rights division of the DOJ, comparing it to “some alligator in a swamp, just looking for some law enforcement officer to snag for some minor transgression.” He lamented that politicians “lynched” Darren Wilson, the officer who killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

Clarke then called employees of the DOJ’s civil rights division “jack-booted goons” who should “get their boot off the neck of the American police officer.”
 

Glenn Beck Plans To Bring The Greatest Conservative Thinkers Together To Lay Out 'A 100-Year Plan' To Save America

Whenever Glenn Beck's candidate of choice fails to become president, he responds by literally going back to the drawing board and dreaming up ambitious plans to fundamentally reshape America from the ground up.

After President Obama was re-elected in 2012, Beck's strategy to save this nation involved everything from "completely redesigning the media, preparing and strengthening families, protecting Israel, defending the Constitution and liberty, and even finding new sources of energy."

Beck's plans were so grandiose that they even involved the creation of a massive $2 billion city that would be used to "deprogram" the American people and teach them "the truth."

None of those plans ever materialized, of course, and instead Beck placed all his hopes in the presidential campaign of Ted Cruz, only to see them dashed when Cruz dropped out of the race.

Predictably, Beck has now decided that it's once again up to him to come up with another grand scheme that'll change the tide; this time by bringing together the "greatest thinkers in conservative/libertarian minds today" to lay out "a 100-year plan" for how to save America.

Those who are willing to sell out their principles in support of Donald Trump will not be invited, Beck said, as he instead plans to reach out to people like Mary Matalin, Mark Levin, George Will and Robbie George and invite them to a two-day meeting where they will be tasked with coming up with a 100-year plan for how the conservative movement can rebuild the nation in the decades to come.

Donald Trump Is Just Asking The Question: Was Vince Foster Murdered By The Clintons?

Donald Trump frequently attempts to get away with spouting wild conspiracy theories by claiming that he doesn’t necessarily believe in the conspiracy theories in question, but is simply asking the question.

This rhetorical trick, one perfected by Fox News hosts and right-wing pundits like Glenn Beck, enables Trump to insert a conspiracy theory into the news narrative without taking any responsibility as to whether the allegation is true or not.

Take, for example, his interview yesterday with the Washington Post, where he mentioned the thoroughly discredited claim that Bill and Hillary Clinton murdered Vincent Foster, a former aide who died of suicide. While bringing up the debunked conspiracy theory, Trump insisted that he wasn’t bringing it up, but was only saying that other people have said Foster was killed.

“He knew everything that was going on, and then all of a sudden he committed suicide,” Trump said. “I don’t bring [Foster’s death] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it. I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair.”

“It’s the one thing with her, whether it’s Whitewater or whether it’s Vince or whether it’s Benghazi. It’s always a mess with Hillary,” Trump said in the interview.



One issue on Trump’s radar is the 1993 death of Foster, which has been ruled a suicide by law enforcement officials and a subsequent federal investigation. But some voices on the far right have long argued that the Clintons may have been involved in a conspiracy that led to Foster’s death.

When asked in an interview last week about the Foster case, Trump dealt with it as he has with many edgy topics — raising doubts about the official version of events even as he says he does not plan to talk about it on the campaign trail.

He called theories of possible foul play “very serious” and the circumstances of Foster’s death “very fishy.”

“He had intimate knowledge of what was going on,” Trump said, speaking of Foster’s relationship with the Clintons at the time. “He knew everything that was going on, and then all of a sudden he committed suicide.”

He added, “I don’t bring [Foster’s death] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it. I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair.”

The GOP presidential candidate used the same rhetorical trick when broadcasting the conspiracy theories that the late Justice Antonin Scalia was murdered and that Rafael Cruz, the father of his then-rival Sen. Ted Cruz, was involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He did the same thing when he raised questions about the validity of President Obama’s birth certificate.

For a candidate who claims to have a brash, tell-it-like-it-is manner, he sure does try his best to not to be held accountable for the things he says.

Alex Jones: Progressives And 'Power-Mad Satanist' Glenn Beck Are Creating 'Hell On Earth'

Alex Jones is continuing to escalate his feud with Glenn Beck, as the two far-right conspiracy theorists have repeatedly mocked and criticized one another as maniacal and insane.

In a video clip posted yesterday, Jones suggested that Beck is a “marionette” who is being controlled by “spiritual slave masters,” adding that he has cried on air over Beck’s actions “because when you see a Judas Iscariot tarot card, an archetype, when you actually see Judas Iscariot in the modern world, a true Benedict Arnold, and just the spirit of deception and true manifest evil, it’s very painful.”

“He is a very evil person,” Jones said. “Very evil.”

Jones particularly took issue with how Beck acted during a meeting between conservative activists and Facebook executives, including Mark Zuckerberg, after allegations surfaced that the social media giant suppressed posts from conservative outlets.

“Like a rat leaving a sinking ship, he’s scurrying into the arms of Zuckerberg, who just is the very vision of a vampire,” Jones said of Beck. “We can put a photo of him up. Not just the giant canine teeth, the psycho eyes. You can look at him and see an evil that may rival Beck’s. Look at Hillary. These are monsters.”

Progressives like Zuckerberg and Clinton, Jones explained, are using people like Beck to lead a “false opposition” in order to usher in a one-world government and destroy humanity.

“Where we’re going,” he warned. “Is a place like hell on earth.”

Jones added: “Beck is the government, Beck is the Democratic Party, Beck has always been Zuckerberg’s buddy, they’ve always been this snickering, evil team. He is a narcissistic, power-mad Satanist in my view…. The guy is literally such a predator. He looks like a serial killer. My cells cry out against him.”

Glenn Beck: 'I Guarantee You The Next Stop On This Train Is Pedophilia'

Glenn Beck kicked off his radio program today by reacting to the announcement by Hershey Park that its guests and employees are allowed to use the restrooms that match the gender with which they identify by declaring that the next step will be the normalization of pedophilia.

"If you don't stand up now," Beck declared, "I guarantee you the next thing that will be mainstreamed" will be pedophilia.

The push for transgender equality is "not normal," Beck insisted, unlike the fight for gay marriage, which was something he claimed that the American public would have accepted within the next few years on its own.

"Transgender bathrooms have come out of nowhere," he stated, "and are being jammed down our throat. I guarantee you, I guarantee you the next stop on this train is pedophilia. I guarantee it. They will normalize pedophilia."

Samuel Rodriguez Gives Trump Chance To 'Redeem The Narrative' With Latinos

Hispanic evangelical leader Samuel Rodriguez has a consistent political strategy: position himself as a nonpartisan advocate committed “not to the agenda of the elephant or the donkey but the lamb,” all while trying to convince Hispanic Christians to support socially conservative causes and politicians.

You might think that the immigration-reform-promoting Rodriguez would be in a bind with immigrant-demeaning Trump as the Republican nominee. But even though Rodriguez has been publicly critical of Trump’s rhetoric on immigration, he seems to be positioning himself to encourage Hispanic evangelicals to support the Republican candidate. He has said Trump blew it with his early campaign rhetoric and that the candidate must “redeem the narrative” with Latinos.

This week Bloomberg reported that Trump would be delivering a videotaped message to be shown at this weekend’s meeting of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), which Rodriguez heads, and whose board includes Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver. The pro-immigrant group America’s Voice called on Rodriguez not to let Trump deliver a message to the group given Trump’s “hateful, incendiary rhetoric directed at our communities.”

(Just days ago, Trump attacked NHCLC board member Russell Moore, a leading Southern Baptist official, as a “nasty guy with no heart.” Rodriguez, who co-authored with Moore a Wall Street Journal op-ed criticizing Trump’s immigration rhetoric and policies last July, said at the time that “an attack on Russell Moore is an attack on the entire evangelical community.”)

Rodriguez told the Washington Post earlier this week that he would wait to see if the message was “respectful” before deciding whether to show it. Today it is clear that Trump has satisfied Rodriguez, because the NHCLC put out a press release saying the group would show video messages from Trump and from Hillary Clinton on Friday evening.

While Rodriguez says he will not endorse a candidate, it’s hard to take him seriously as some kind of honest broker between the staunchly pro-choice Clinton and the muddled punish-the-woman Trump, who has said he would nominate Supreme Court justices to overturn Roe v. Wade.  As we recently noted, Rodriguez has said, “I’m going to vote for protecting the Supreme Court from judges that are activists, that run counter to our Judeo-Christian value system.” And he has made it clear that he believes Hispanic Christians must make opposition to abortion, not support for immigrant families, the basis of their vote.

In an interview being promoted by Glenn Beck’s The Blaze today, Rodriguez doubles down on that message, saying it would be “morally reprehensible” for Christians to vote for a candidate who supports Planned Parenthood, saying they would need to “repent.”

“I want to speak to every single African American, Latino, and Anglo Christ follower who believes in biblical orthodoxy — how can we justify supporting anything — be it Republican or Democrat — that in any way, form or shape defends Planned Parenthood?”

Trump has repeatedly praised Planned Parenthood but says he wants to defund the women’s health organization unless they agree to stop providing abortion services.

Rodriguez told The Blaze that it would take “a miracle” for Trump to win over the Latino community, but suggested it could be possible if he apologizes and chooses a Hispanic running mate, mentioning Marco Rubio, Susana Martinez and Ted Cruz.

The supposedly nonpartisan Rodriguez has filmed a video promoting the Republican Party’s faith-outreach project. Only 16 percent of American Latinos identify themselves as evangelical, according to the Pew Research Center, but they are more likely than other Hispanics to vote Republican.

Irony Alert: Glenn Beck Says Those Who Defame Others Should Be Destroyed Through Lawsuits

On his radio program yesterday, Glenn Beck spent a segment discussing the situation in which a Texas pastor who had threatened to sue Whole Foods, claiming that employees had written an anti-gay slur on a cake that he had ordered, admitted to making up the story. 

Whole Foods, which had initially responded by threatening to counter-sue the pastor, announced that it was dropping its lawsuit after receiving an apology and Beck was upset that this guy was going to get away with trying to smear Whole Foods and destroy its reputation.

"Again, we find over and over and over, the leftist activists that run false flags," Beck said. "They make this stuff up or set people up and then run with it and then it's found out and nobody does anything about it. There is never a consequence ... You were trying to destroy their business. You were calling them the worst names you could. You were going to make them into a sub-human in their own community, and an apology is okay? Is there no consequence any more?"

"Don't drop the lawsuit," Beck said, because baseless smears like this "destroy people."

"You have to now teach others: Don't you dare even try it," Beck stated, "because if you're lying about it, I will destroy you ... Don't bring a knife to a gun fight. That's what I'm saying. You pull a knife on me, I got a gun so I'm gonna defend myself. Keep your cute little knife, but if you're trying to smear me, you're trying to defame me and you're taking me to court, okay, you could win, that's fine. But should we, as companies, go after those people and say, 'No, that's not enough, that's not enough, I want to teach everybody else, I'm putting an end to this nonsense.' You don't do that. You don't do that. Where everybody else settles and walks away and is just like forget it, let's just get back to work. I'm not sure that's the right thing to do anymore."

That is an interesting position for Beck to take, considering that he and his company are currently being sued for defamation and slander by Abdulrahman Alharbi, who was injured in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and whom Beck spent weeks accusing of being an al Qaeda "control agent" and "money man" who had financed the bombing and recruited the Tsarnaev brothers to carry it out.

Connecting The Dots With Frank Gaffney

For years, we have been covering the attacks that anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney has been leveling against Grover Norquist, a fellow conservative activist who has referred to Gaffney as his “stalker.”

Indeed, Gaffney has launched a very personal battle against Norquist, accusing the Americans for Tax Reform leader of helping the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamist terrorist groups infiltrate the conservative movement. These attacks, which often invoke the fact that Norquist is married to a Muslim-American woman, have been demonstrated to be completely unfounded.

Gaffney has recruited other conservative leaders into his fight, including commentator Glenn Beck and Family Research Council official Jerry Boykin, and was involved in a campaign to get Norquist thrown off the board of the National Rifle Association.

Gaffney claims that he “saw terrorists in [Norquist’s] office space” and uses guilt-by-association logic to tie Norquist to all sorts of unsavory figures through the anti-tax activists outreach to Muslim voters on behalf of conservative causes. Recently, Beck tweeted a scandalous photo of Norquist and his wife “palling around with Keith Ellison,” a Muslim Democratic congressman from Minnesota who, according to the Beck’s tweet, is tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and wants to “put thousands of prison converts to jihad on the streets.” Naturally, as one source of this “information,” Beck cited Gaffney’s group, the Center for Security Policy.

However, the recall vote against Norquist failed, representing a major rebuke to Gaffney’s efforts.

“The recall was simply the most recent nonsense from Frank Gaffney—my stalker of the last 17 years. The NRA membership defeated his effort last April and again this year,” Norquist said.

Now that the NRA members have kept Norquist on its board and rejected the message from Gaffney and others, it is clear that Gaffney, using his own connect-the-dots/guilt-by-association logic, is involved in the Muslim Brotherhood:

  • Frank Gaffney was a senior adviser to Ted Cruz
  • Ted Cruz has spoken several times at NRA events and praised the group.
  • The NRA board includes Grover Norquist.
  • Norquist is, according to Gaffney, a Muslim Brotherhood agent.
  • Therefore, Gaffney is tied to the Muslim Brotherhood!

While obviously it is patently absurd to suggest that Gaffney (or Norquist, for that matter) is a Muslim Brotherhood agent, his connect-the-dots logic works both ways, and can even be used against Gaffney himself.

Glenn Beck Fails Once Again In His Effort To Remove Grover Norquist From The NRA

Last year, when anti-tax activist Grover Norquist was up for re-election for a seat on the National Rifle Association's board of directors, Glenn Beck threatened to cancel his lifetime membership in the organization if Norquist retained his position. Insisting that Norquist was a front man for the Muslim Brotherhood, Beck declared that Norquist "is a very bad influence and a very bad man [and] if this is who the NRA decides to put on their board of directors, I don't think I can be associated with them."

Following Beck's threat, NRA president Wayne LaPierre reached out to Beck and promised that the organization would launch an investigation into Norquist that would be fully transparent and the results of which would be posted on the NRA website for all to see in order "to get to the bottom of this once and for all."

A year passed and the NRA investigation, whose results were never made public, reportedly found that the allegations against Norquist were without merit, which prompted Beck to switch course and throw his support behind a recall effort to remove Norquist from the board via a vote of NRA members.

For the last few months, Beck has used his radio and television shows to continue to make the case against Norquist and urge his audience members to vote to remove him from the NRA because he is a dangerous, deep-cover agent for Islamic radicals.

The deadline for votes to be submitted was May 1 and the results have now been tallied and, according to Paul Bedard of The Washington Examiner, Beck's crusade has failed:

A left field attempt to paint the nation's No. 1 tax foe as a closet Muslim radical was tossed in the trash this weekend when National Rifle Association members voted to reject a recall effort of board member Grover Norquist pushed by his foes led by radio ranter Glenn Beck.

"I greatly appreciate the strong support the NRA membership and the entire Second Amendment community provided in defeating the recall effort," Norquist, founder of Americans for Tax Reform, told Secrets.

Pointing a finger at a champion of the recall effort, he added, "The recall was simply the most recent nonsense from Frank Gaffney—my stalker of the last 17 years. The NRA membership defeated his effort last April and again this year."

...

Elected to the board six times, Norquist found support among top NRA officials and key former government officials like former Reagan-era Attorney General Ed Meese and former Bush Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.

In an email to Secrets, Todd Rathner, an NRA board of director, said, "I was confident the membership of the NRA would see this recall vote for what it was, an attack on the NRA in a year when we must be focused on critical elections. With the Supreme Court hanging in the balance, I am glad this petty distraction is behind us."

And Alan Gottlieb, executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation, said, "Grover Norquist is a great asset to the gun rights movement. It was important to the cause of freedom that he won this unjustified recall effort."

Confirmation of his victory came just one week before the annual NRA Convention, taking place in Louisville, Ky., beginning Friday. 

Given that Beck had warned that the effort to remove Norquist from the NRA was the last chance to stop him and that Beck had also publicly stated that he could not be a part of the NRA if Norquist was allowed to remain on the board, the only option he seems to have now is to stand by his principles and resign from the NRA.

Update: Predictably, Beck is already backing away from his threat to quit the NRA, saying on his radio program today that leaving would only weaken the organization and so he must "hold the line" and continue to "duke it out."

"What are you going to do, unplug from everything?" he asked. "Do you just unplug? Or do you stay in and pitch? I don't think we can unplug. I think that is a really bad idea, to unplug."

Glenn Beck: We Are The New Pilgrims!

Last night, Glenn Beck told his studio audience that the likely general election matchup between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton proves that the progressive movement has taken over the country, alleging that Trump and Clinton are both progressives who don’t intend to preserve constitutional values.

“The America that we know is now officially over,” he said. “The fundamental transformation has happened. The America that was the constitutional, Founding Fathers’ America doesn’t exist anymore. That doesn’t mean America’s not going to go on, it just doesn’t exist. Our new founders are Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Eugene Debs, Margaret Sanger, it is the progressives that have founded and it has taken them 100 years to get it to happen but they have slowly done it and we’re here now.”

He asked audience members if they would leave the U.S. and move to a new land if they could “practice your religion and live your Constitution in peace.” Most, including Beck, said they would go. “And we can take Ted Cruz as our new leader,” Beck added.

However, Beck lamented that this colonial experiment with Cruz will not occur because “there’s no place that we can go now.” “We’re out of land.”

He urged viewers to “think of ourselves as Pilgrims” who, despite the travails and hardships, will train their children and grandchildren in the proper values and traditions in hopes that they will one day reclaim America.

The best way to rear children in conservative principles, Beck said, is by withdrawing them from public schools and getting them “out of that indoctrination and that brainwashing as fast as you possibly could.” He suggested that parents instead homeschool their kids with lesson plans provided by Liberty University.

Of course, Liberty University also seems to be compromised by what Beck sees as the progressive movement, as its president, Jerry Falwell Jr., has very vocally endorsed Trump.

After Spending All Day Trashing The GOP, Glenn Beck Says It Was All A Misunderstanding

On his television show last night, Glenn Beck continued his campaign to convince conservatives to abandon the Republican Party after he was reportedly snubbed by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.

As Beck explained it, Priebus had scheduled a meeting with Beck several weeks ago, only to blow him off after Beck's preferred candidate, Ted Cruz, dropped out of the presidential race, which Beck took as proof that the GOP has no interest in making any effort to reach out to conservatives in the party and is, instead, simply ordering them to fall in line and support Donald Trump.

Beck, of course, is having none of it, telling his audience last night to leave the party.

"The first thing that has to happen is you need to say, 'Republicans, I'm done with you. You're not doing anything to earn my vote,'" Beck said. "And you know this is true. You know this is true! They're ashamed to stand with you. They're ashamed of the pro-lifers, they're ashamed of the religious people. Look at how the religious people, me in particular and Ted Cruz, were handled from the Republican Party from the get-go. They don't like you bringing God up. They're ashamed of people who believe in God. They're ashamed of people who actually believe in the Constitution."

The Republicans have ignored conservatives for years, Beck said, and so it's time for conservatives to leave the party.

Interestingly, late last night, after spending all day trashing the GOP, Beck posted a message on his Facebook page suggesting that it was all a big misunderstanding:

Today, I blasted the RNC for reaching out to spend time with me, making it seem like it was a real priority, and then, ‘coincidentally’ not following up after Senator Cruz dropped out. After the show, it became known that there was a misunderstanding. I think my staff (and I) jumped to conclusions that were unfair to them.

As you all know, I trust virtually no one in politics. So when I feel someone is using me to get to you, my audience, my shields go up. The RNC assures me that their goal in trying to set up a meeting was to build a bridge between our respective organizations – nothing more and nothing less. We will agree on some things, disagree on others but we don’t have to be disagreeable. I look forward to sitting down with Reince, whenever that is, and see where we can find common ground and look forward to him addressing our great audience.

As always, we will strive to do better tomorrow.

'They're Only Using Us For Their Own Power': Glenn Beck Unloads On The GOP

On his radio program last week, Glenn Beck revealed that before Ted Cruz had ended his race for the GOP presidential nomination, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus had contacted Beck about setting up a time for him to travel to Texas to spend the day with the right-wing radio host in an effort to try and find a way to unify the party.

Now that Cruz has dropped out, Beck announced today that Priebus is now blowing off this meeting and no longer has any interest in courting Beck or his viewers, which set Beck off on a long rant about how the Republican Party is embarrassed of its base and regularly exploits conservative activists for its own purposes. 

Beck said that Priebus called him weeks ago to set up a meeting to discuss how important the conservative movement is to the Republican Party, but since Cruz has dropped out, "now he won't come on, now he won't even return our phone calls" and instead conservatives are just being told by the GOP to fall in line and support Donald Trump.

"The game that is being played with us is the game that was played with the African Americans beginning in the 1970s," Beck stated.

As he sees it, blacks have been coerced into supporting the Democratic Party despite the fact that "they are being taken advantage [of] and raped because they have nowhere else to go," and the same thing is happening to Christian conservatives within the GOP.

"The game that has been played by the Democrats is now being played on us," Beck said. "The religious, the conservatives and the constitutionalists are being told, 'You got no place else to go' ... You are embarrassed by my religiosity, you are embarrassed by my conservative values, you are embarrassed by my values of the Constitution. You mock me every step of the way. You mock the religious. You court us, or have in the past, you court us and then you mock us. You're embarrassed of us behind closed doors and every single conservative, constitutionalist, Tea Party and religious person know it. They don't like us. They don't want to be around us. They're only using us for their own power."

Ted Cruz Is Open To Unsuspending His Campaign If He Can Win Nebraska's Primary

Ever since Ted Cruz dropped out of the Republican presidential race last week, Glenn Beck and his co-hosts have been holding on to a sliver of hope that if Cruz could still somehow manage to win today's Republican primary in Nebraska, that would convince the Texas senator to unsuspend his campaign and re-enter the race.

Today, Cruz called into Beck's radio program and Beck's co-host Pat Gray directly asked Cruz about this possibility.

"If Nebraska were to somehow miraculously choose you tonight," Gray asked, "if that happened, would you consider getting back in the race?"

Cruz responded that he would certainly be open to that admittedly slight possibility.

"I am not holding my breath," Cruz said. "My assumption is that that will not happen. But listen, let's be very clear, if there is a path to victory, we launched this campaign intending to win; the reason we suspended the race last week is with Indiana's loss, I didn't see a viable path to victory. If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly."

Beck and crew were, of course, elated and urged Republicans in Nebraska to turn out en masse today to vote for Cruz.

Glenn Beck Says God Must Punish America For Rejecting Ted Cruz Because 'He Ain't A Bad Dad'

Last night, a teary-eyed Glenn Beck and his studio audience engaged in something of a therapy session as they struggled to come to grips with the fact that God's chosen candidate, Ted Cruz, has withdrawn from the Republican presidential race.

The rejection of Cruz by Republican voters was "the last reckoning for us," Beck declared, warning that God will now allow this nation to suffer the consequences of our decisions. America, Beck said, has become "a petulant child" that God has warned and scolded and disciplined over and over again "but the behavior is getting worse" and so punishment must follow. 

God cannot allow this nation to escape the punishment that is due, he said, because "that would be a bad dad. That would be a very bad dad and the one thing I know about God, He ain't a bad dad."

Later, Beck declared that he can never vote for Donald Trump because such a vote carries eternal consequences.

"Tuesday changed the course of the world," he said, and now "when we lose [freedom] here," everyone will be called to account by God "because we were born at this time, in this country because every one of us are warriors," but too many people gave up the fight before the battle was won.

Beck refuses to put himself in a situation where he has to try to justify to God his decision to vote for a lying, narcissistic sociopath like Trump, saying that those who are attempting to minimize or dismiss the rampant warning signs about the Republican frontrunner are no different than those throughout history who have voted to "elect a madman."

Glenn Beck: Cruz Should 'Unsuspend' His Campaign Because Of Kasich's 'Dirty Tricks'

Glenn Beck kicked off his radio program yesterday by declaring that John Kasich was the "most despicable" of all the figures in the Republican presidential primary because he suddenly dropped out of the race only after Ted Cruz had already done so, thereby clearing the way for Donald Trump to win the nomination.

For weeks, Beck had been furious with Kasich and insisted that he was putting the entire nation at risk by not getting out of the race so that Cruz could go head-to-head with Trump and defeat him. For Kasich to now drop out only after Cruz had dropped out was proof to Beck that Kasich had cut some sort of deal either with Trump or with the GOP to stay in solely for the purpose of ensuring that Cruz could not win the nomination.

"All research shows" that if Kasich had dropped out earlier, "Cruz would have won," Beck asserted, despite the fact that Trump won the last seven primary states with over 50 percent of the vote. "This is clearly dirty tricks. They're not even trying to hide it ... If I were Ted Cruz, I would unsuspend my campaign today."
