‘Just cover me with a bucket of blood’: Glenn Beck is not handling Ted Cruz’s Trump endorsement well

Published

on

Commentator Glenn Beck had a bit of a meltdown after his Monday interview with Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. Cruz threw his weight behind Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a surprise endorsement last week.

The Tea Party favorite and former presidential candidate appeared on Beck’s radio show to explain his about-face on the stand he took against Trump at the Republican National Convention.

“That was not what I expected,” Beck said, fidgeting and polishing his glasses as his crew sat around him in dejected silence.

“For the very first time,” he lamented, “I heard Ted Cruz calculate. When that happened, the whole thing fell apart for me.”

“But it’s my fault,” he said. “Its my fault for believing that men can be George Washington.”

He fretted that maybe he should have endorsed Marco Rubio, which would have been the politically expedient course, “Instead I said, ‘Let’s find a truly honorable man,’ and that will always let you down.”

“Right now, we have become PETA,” Beck said. “Shame on us! Why not just, if you won’t vote for Hillary or you won’t vote for Trump, why not just cover me in a bucket of blood? Why not just shame me in the public square? Why not run them out of business? They’re climate deniers!”

“There is no difference between the two teams anymore,” he huffed. “Which one is for the idea that all men are created equal? That all men have a right to pursue their happiness and make their own g*dd*amn decisions? Which one? Which one?”

“I contend it’s neither of them,” said Beck. “So let’s just soak each other in buckets of blood.”

By many reports, Beck’s once-ambitious media empire is beset by crises, economically failing and currently torn by multiple lawsuits. Beck’s former protege and business partner Christopher Balfe is suing Beck and his company Mercury Arts, alleging that Beck has driven the company “into the ground due to his own erratic behavior, excessive spending, and mismanagement.”

Vietnamese women strive to clear war-era mines

Published

Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.

"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.

More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.

At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.

Published

on

In a progressive welcoming move, Chief Justice John Roberts issued his New Year's Eve annual report urging his fellow federal judges to stand up for democracy.

"In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public's need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital," he wrote. "We should celebrate our strong and independent judiciary, a key source of national unity and stability."

Trump’s next 100 days will dictate whether he can be re-elected or not — here’s why

Published

on

According to CNN pollster-in-residence Harry Enten, Donald Trump's next 100 days -- which could include an impeachment trial in the Senate -- will hold the key to whether he will remain president in 2020.

As Eten explains in a column for CNN, "His [Trump's] approval rating has been consistently low during his first term. Yet his supporters could always point out that approval ratings before an election year have not historically been correlated with reelection success. But by mid-March of an election year, approval ratings, though, become more predictive. Presidents with low approval ratings in mid-March of an election year tend to lose, while those with strong approval ratings tend to win in blowouts and those with middling approval ratings usually win by small margins."
