Glenn Beck Gives Live On-Air Speech For Cruz, Then The LAST Thing He Ever Expected Walks In

As conservative commentator Glenn Beck took his impassioned campaign supporting Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz to a Nevada caucus location, he witnessed first-hand the feeling of watching the tide turn away from him.

Donald Trump had entered the building.

Video of the scene at Palo Verde High School in Summerlin, Nevada, shows Beck making a very emotional plea to caucus goers to support Cruz.

Then, apparently by chance, Trump made an appearance as he toured multiple sites around Nevada Tuesday night. MSNBC, which happened to be on site at the school, broadcast Trump’s appearance live and paid no attention to Beck.

“This is an honor,” Trump told the crowd as he was given his usual round of high-energy cheers. “Thank you for being with me tonight. We are going to have hopefully a historic night. In New Hampshire it was an amazing win. As you know, South Carolina. Unbelievable. Hopefully this will be the same. I appreciate everybody being here. I wanted to be here myself.”

Trump touched on the issues.

“Our borders are going to be strong,” Trump said. “We’re going to get rid of Obamacare. We’re getting rid of Common Core. We’re going to take care of our veterans, our military… we’re going to make it big and strong. We’re going to be respected again.”

Then he got to the point.

“Get over there and vote!” Trump said, then left.

Beck, who called the caucuses “scary and sad,” attacked Trump’s supporters as “some of the nastiest people I have ever been with.” He later compared Trump supporters to Hitler’s “brown shirts.”

“We will not be silenced or intimidated. America needs to wake up and realize who they are dealing with — a very dangerous demagogue who is teaching people to strike out,” Beck said.

While Beck vented, Trump exulted in a victory that gave him his third straight GOP win and Cruz a third consecutive third-place finish.

Wow: Glenn Beck Reacts To Trump’s SC Victory- Instantly Tells Christians To Do Something Surprising

The Republican presidential contest has often been described as a clash to determine the soul of the party. Radio host Glenn Beck takes that analogy much deeper, and paints the contest as a battle for every American’s soul.

To that end, Beck has called for a fast on Monday for “Ted Cruz, our country and the Nevada caucus.” Although his call for Biblical responses has earned him some derision, Beck is not changing his tune.

“Many times in our history people called for a fast and prayer. In fact usually it was the president. We see in the Old Testament the people would fast and pray for leadership and kings,” he posted Monday morning on Facebook.

“I have just said my morning prayer and dedicated my fast to the country, the election – that people’s eyes would be wide open, including mine and that the best man may win. I also am asking for strength and continued courage for Ted Cruz,” he added.

“Join me,” he concluded.

On Sunday, Beck responded to criticisms of his call for fasting that had appeared on Breitbart and The Drudge Report.

“I am not running from this. I own my comments and actions and encourage others to do the same,” he posted on Facebook. “Prayer, fasting and asking for a humbling of ourselves and nation. I pray and fast not for Ted Cruz to win, but for His will to be done and that our will and wants will align with His.”

Later on Sunday, Beck also responded to criticisms of his call for a fast with introspection about the nation.

“Reading posts today proves the point that the Church is dead asleep. Since when has a fast and prayer been crazy?” he posted. “Have we really become a nation that mocks those who pray and fast? The sad answer is yes.”

“I, as a citizen, believe that we are closer to losing our nation and Liberty than we were on September 11th. What did we do that week? We prayed and fasted. We promised ourselves and our children that we would stay awake and do all we could to preserve our country and constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic,” Beck wrote.

“If we do not approach this vote as a sacred responsibility no matter who you vote for, you don’t know what time it really is. I know it doesn’t make me popular or cool to ask the nation to pray but I have never been popular or cool,” he posted.

“I fear Lincoln was right. Our destruction will not come from an outside force but we will indeed destroy ourselves. I pray I play no role in that event,” Beck posted, adding one final thought: “Will you do the same?”

Glenn Beck Just Revealed The Shocking Reason He Thinks Scalia Had To Die- ‘You’re Welcome…’

Radio talk show host Glenn Becks believes he may have a divine bead on why God allowed Justice Antonin Scalia to die at this time.

Calling into his radio program from South Carolina, where he has been campaigning for Sen. Ted Cruz, the conservative responded to a question posed by co-host Pat Gray, who asked, “I couldn’t help, but wonder, why? Why now? Why did you have to take Antonin now?”

“You know, I was listening to you guys, and I just want to say, Pat, I think I have an answer for you on that,” Beck said. He went on to explain that he had the same feeling of bewilderment after Hurricane Sandy hit in 2012, seeming to take the momentum away from Gov. Mitt Romney, who Beck had endorsed for the presidency, and give it to Barack Obama.

While he did not understand why God allowed Sandy to hit and thwart Romney’s chances, he believes the Lord gave him insight into what He is doing now.

Beck offered the caveat, “I don’t want to assume to know His plan, but … I thought when this happened” that God said, “You’re welcome, I just woke the American people up. I took them out of the game show moment and woke enough of them up to say, ‘Look how close your liberty is to being lost,’” he said. The radioman’s “game show” reference was clearly to Donald Trump, of whom he has been very critical.  

“You replace one guy and you now have 5-4 decisions in the other direction,” Beck elaborated. “You better elect somebody, who is going to put somebody on because for the next 30 years, if you don’t the Constitution as you know it … The Constitution is hanging by a thread. That thread has just been cut. And the only way that we survive now is if we have a true constitutionalist (as president).”

Beck clearly has a constitutionalist in mind in Cruz. As reported by Western Journalism, the Texan’s campaign released an ad this week called Supreme Trust, making the same point that Beck did on his radio program regarding the high court being in the balance and Trump not being the man to be given the next justice choice.

The Blaze reported that Beck has received criticism by several media outlets for his suggestion that God may have taken Scalia’s life now to help Ted Cruz become president to which the commentator responded in a Facebook post on Wednesday. “Apparently the MSM is reporting that I said ‘God killed Scalia to help Ted Cruz.’ Outrageous,” he wrote.

“What I did say is ‘perhaps God allowed Scalia to die at this time to wake America up to how close we are to the loss of our freedom,’” he continued. “He gives us free choice. Who He wants as president I do not know.”

However, this week was not the first time Beck has claimed God may be on Cruz’s side. Last week at a Cruz campaign event in South Carolina, the radioman, who describes himself as a born again LDS Christian, said, “Fall to your knees and pray to God to reveal to you what the hour is … This is your last call, America! Stand, stand with the man I believe was raised for this hour, Ted Cruz!”

As reported by Western Journalism, Beck is pushing hard for the evangelical vote for Cruz in South Carolina, where the block will likely make up two-thirds of Republican primary voters.

A Fox News poll released on Thursday finds Trump topping Cruz by eight points with evangelicals, 31 to 23 percent, with Marco Rubio receiving 17 percent and Jeb Bush 10 percent.

Watch: Many Will Never See Fox News The Same Way After What Glenn Beck Just Revealed…

Conservative radio talk show host Glenn Beck revealed over the weekend one of the reasons that he left the Fox News channel nearly five years ago.

Speaking at a Ted Cruz campaign event in Myrtle Beach, Beck introduced the subject, saying, “I don’t know why the Lord told me to tell this story, because I swore that I was never going to tell this story. But I have learned not to edit myself with the Lord.”

“Here’s one of the real reasons I left Fox News,” the radioman continued. “I was called into an office and I was told, ‘Stop talking about God.’ I was told, ‘Stop telling people to pray.’ I was told not to tell people to pray on their knees because there’s a lot of people in the audience, their knees hurt and I make them feel bad.”

Beck also recounted that one of the Fox executives told him to “stop praying” because that “takes God’s focus off the important things like war,” which caused some audience members to gasp. 

Glenn Beck on why he really left Fox News…WOW.

Posted by Christopher Westfall on Saturday, February 13, 2016

“I was like, ‘Uh huh.’ Wow. I thought I was gonna get this speech at CNN,” Beck said. The media personality had worked at CNN prior to his move to Fox in 2008. 

Beck told the Fox News executive, “Ok, I understand your point of view.”

Beck stated that four months later, he was called into the executive’s office again and asked if he remembered their earlier conversation, which he assured him he did. The executive explained to the commentator that he had mentioned God 91 times over 120 days. As soon as Beck recounted this tale, his South Carolina audience cheered.

Beck said he realized after this second meeting that it was time for him to go. He told the Fox News executive, “I’m going to (leave) because God said to me, if you don’t leave now, you’re not to leave without your soul.” 

The conservative left the network in June 2011. A Fox News spokesman offered a different view of the parting of the ways in 2013: “Glenn Beck wasn’t trying to save his soul, he was trying to save his a–. Advertisers fled his show and even Glenn knows what that means in our industry. Yet, we still tried to give him a soft landing. Guess no good deed goes unpunished.”

Beck describes himself as a “born again LDS Christian.” He sought to bridge the Mormon/Evangelical Christian theological divide, strongly advocating that evangelicals vote for Mitt Romney in 2012. In this election cycle, he has endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz, who is outspoken about his Christian faith.

Ouch: Glenn Beck Just Dropped The Hammer On Trump’s Faith- ‘Biggest Crock Of Bull***…’

Radio talk show host Glenn Beck went after Donald Trump’s self-proclaimed Christian faith at a Ted Cruz campaign event in South Carolina Thursday night.

“Too many people right now are looking like a guy like Donald Trump and believing that that man has ever opened a Bible,” he told a crowd at Morningstar Fellowship Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina. “That’s the biggest crock of bullcr*p I’ve ever heard! We all know it!”

“But there’s too many people who want just to go along for the show. This isn’t a show! This is a profoundly sacred responsibility, and each one of us will be held accountable by our creator when we meet him,” the radioman added. 

“Donald Trump is very dangerous, in my opinion,” said Beck.

As reported by Western Journalism, Beck backed Cruz’s candidacy shortly before the Iowa caucuses and was very upset with former Alaska Gov. and evangelical Sarah Palin’s decision to support Trump’s candidacy during that same time window.

Trump also garnered the endorsement of prominent evangelical Jerry Falwell, Jr., who is the president of Liberty University, before Iowa.

Exit polling indicates that Cruz picked up 26 percent of the evangelical vote in the Hawkeye State, followed by Trump with 24 percent, Rubio 21 percent and Ben Carson pulled in 12 percent. However, Trump won the evangelicals a week later in New Hampshire with 27 percent to Cruz’s 23 percent and Rubio’s 13 percent.

As in Iowa, evangelicals in South Carolina will likely make up approximately two-thirds of Republican primary voters.

Trump went after Cruz on Twitter on Thursday and Friday for push poll calls indicating that he and Sen. Marco Rubio support gay marriage.

The billionaire candidate called into question the authenticity of Cruz’s faith, in light of the push polls and the false report his campaign spread, which all but stated that Ben Carson was leaving the race, just before the Iowa caucuses were about to get underway.

Politico reports that the Cruz campaign has denied being the source of the push polls against Trump.

As reported by Western Journalism, Cruz blamed CNN for his campaign’s “mistake” in communicating that Ben Carson was leaving the campaign trail and about to make a “big announcement.” The network never reported that Carson was about to make any sort of announcement and made clear that he was returning to the trail after a brief stop in Florida.
