Surprising no-one, Glenn Beck, after joining the recent conservative delegation to Facebook, has defended the social network and its progressive CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, while attacking fellow conservatives for being too demanding of the company. http://www.infowars.com/glenn-beck-de…

“It’s important that this not appear as though we are pulling a stunt at this convention” Ken Cuccinelli to the New York Times“This is about protecting movement conservatism.”
Actually, it has nothing to do with conservatism, everything to do with winning since the voters has spoken, and Ted Cruz having suspended his campaign one week ago while in the process of siphoning off delegates is talking about unsuspending his campaign.
The Cruz crew working behind the scenes with the Senator from Texas holding on to his delegates through this summer’s Republican Party Convention this July in Cleveland, Ohio is moving to commandeer the RNC platform thereby wrestling the presidential nomination from the presumptive nominee, Donald Trump.
The latest Ted Cruz talking point is that if the senator from Texas wins the Nebraska GOP primary today, he will jump back in.
What shall we deduce from said statement? Ted Cruz only appeared to suspend his campaign, something that will please Cruz supporters…only? (Lyin’ Ted Cruz?)
Ted Cruz floated the possibility of restarting his presidential campaign if he wins Nebraska’s GOP primary on Tuesday and avoided saying whether he supports Donald Trump‘s bid for president.
Cruz, who suspended his White House run last week, said he does not expect to win Nebraska’s primary but is leaving the door open.
‘We launched this campaign intending to win. The reason we suspended our campaign was that with the Indiana loss, I felt there was no path to victory,’ he said Tuesday on conservative host Glenn Beck’s radio program.
‘If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly.’
Cruz demurred on supporting Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, because the Republican National Convention and general election are still months away.
‘This is a choice every voter is going to have to make. I would note, it’s not a choice we as voters have to make today,’ Cruz said when asked about supporting Trump. …
It is not about the voters. The voters have spoken. Cruz was obviously smarting from his exchange with Trump supporters last week; a nightmarish two weeks followed by his loss in Indiana but having regrouped its business as usual.
Senator Ted Cruz’s supporters are mounting an effort to seize control of the Republican platform and the rules governing the party’s July convention, the first indication that Mr. Cruz will not simply hand his delegates over to Donald J. Trump.
In an email sent Sunday to pro-Cruz convention delegates, a top aide to the Texas senator wrote that it was “still possible to advance a conservative agenda at the convention.”
“To do that, it is imperative that we fill the Rules and Platform Committees with strong conservative voices like yours,” wrote Ken Cuccinelli, who was the campaign’s former delegate wrangler and a former attorney general of Virginia. “That means you need to come to the national convention and support others in coming, too!”
Mr. Cruz is planning a Monday evening conference call where, as Mr. Cuccinelli writes, Mr. Cruz’s former officials plan to “discuss what we can do at the convention to protect against liberal changes to our platform, and how we can right the wrongs in the rules from 2012!”
The “wrongs” Mr. Cuccinelli was referring to are the changes pushed through at the last convention by supporters of Mitt Romney that would have made it harder for a candidate’s name to be placed in nomination.
But Mr. Cruz’s supporters and other conservative activists are also deeply concerned about Mr. Trump’s general election agenda, and want to ensure that he does not alter the party’s platform. Since locking up the nomination last week, Mr. Trump has made clear he intends to run a populist campaign against Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, indicating he is open to higher taxes and an increase in the minimum wage.
The party’s convention rules and policy platform are determined every four years by temporary committees comprised of a select group of convention delegates. The rules and platform are then ratified or rejected by all the delegates at the convention.
With the assumption that the party’s nomination would not be decided on the first convention ballot, Mr. Cruz spent considerable time this spring electing delegates favorable to him to the July convention in Cleveland. So while he is out of the race, many of his supporters will still be delegates. And while many convention delegates are bound to support Mr. Trump on the first ballot, they are free to vote their conscience on matters relating to convention rules and the platform. …
Except that Cruz is not out of the race. He merely put forth the illusion of same.
… The email, which carries the “Cruz-Fiorina” logo, was forwarded to The New York Times by a convention delegate.
Reached by telephone, Mr. Cuccinelli authenticated the message. As for Mr. Trump’s rhetorical shifts in recent days, he said, “nothing I’ve seen since a week ago has been surprising to me.”
But Mr. Cuccinelli said Mr. Cruz, who has been silent since withdrawing from the race last Tuesday, had no intention of trying to rewrite convention rules in an effort to deny Mr. Trump the nomination….
Beck has obviously refilled his meds over the weekend. Below is this morning’s exchange between Glenn Beck and Ted Cruz.
No coincidence that Beck interviews Cruz on the morning of the Nebraska primary.
What about last week’s televised press conference where Cruz announced that he was suspending his campaign? Oh, that….which pretty much means that everything that has occurred since within the Republican Party can be chalked up to nothing more than a distraction and an opportunity for Ted Cruz to catch his breath while continuing to work behind the scene.
While dismissing his behavior and that of the #NeverTrumpsters these past months, Beck on today’s radio program (audio at bottom of post),Beck accused the GOP of using Alinskyite tactics (which they are but they’re not alone) against conservatives.
Interestingly enough, while sharing his newfound revelations, Beck mentioned that Rience Priebus was in negotiations with someone at Mercury in the hopes of meeting with Beck and scheduling an on-air interview. However, since Cruz suspended his campaign, Priebus backtracked and is no longer taking or returning calls from Beck’s people.
Teachable moment: While Beck never mentions it, it does seem that he was burned by his establishment collaborators.
So now after months of shaming Conservatives for choosing a candidate other than Ted Cruz, Glenn Beck has elevated his attack to shaming Evangelicals in order to manipulate Mormon voters? Rich, Beck, rich. (sarcasm).
On his show Wednesday, Glenn Beck said the country needs to “atone” for its divisive racial past, not for slavery, for a lousy reconstruction period.
“I know a lot of people disagree with this — they’re still yelling about slavery — I’m sorry, dude, 600,000 people, most of them white, lost their lives,” Beck said. “The country was washed in blood and Abraham Lincoln was willing to lose it all … against slavery.”
Beck said the country atoned for slavery then, but “picked it right back up” in reconstruction.
“We just changed from slavery to something else, … but there was no atonement there,” he said[…]
I believe it was last week that Glenn Beck announced that he was about to take TheBlazeTV in another direction and at that moment that I was thankful for having the good sense to cancel my subscription.
Listening to Beck is reminiscent of the middle-aged white woman who walked up to me in the frozen food section of the supermarket the day after Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election.
Wearing an SEIU sweatshirt, she danced up to me with a big smile on her face, briefly put her arms around my shoulders and said, “We finally overcame. I voted for him, too.” Wink, wink after which Miss Moonbat danced away down the aisle.
This woman must have read the look on my face because when I next saw her 15 minutes later at the cashier, she quickly moved two cashiers down to the left away from me.
I cringe every time someone goes off on this white privilege, white guilt, slavery, reparations tangent and now here is Glenn Beck going off on America needs to atone?,
It is a major part of the Progressive agenda not to allow America to move on from the slavery although it is Progressives who has enslaved not just Blacks but a nation with their failed social engineering policies.
It is the job of the grievance industry to keep the insanity alive.
Beck who should know better has obviously bought into the white guilt, white privilege, reparations, America should atone propaganda.
It is either that or Mr. Moonbat is tripping on his own sauce.
