    Merrick Garland "will not stand" for attacks on the integrity of Biden's DOJ and FBI! But just one question—what the heck happened to the rule of law? As the Attorney General turns the FBI into his personal political tool and raids Trump's Mar-a-Lago, Senator Ted Cruz joins Michael Knowles to break down the consequences of this completely unprecedented move, including what it means for 2024, and expose the utter double-standard the Left is operating under. And speaking of weaponizing the federal government, Dems vote to double (yes, DOUBLE) the size of the IRS… to process our tax returns faster? Certainly not. The Biden Administration is out for blood, and this is simply their next move. -- Diversify your savings with American Hartford Gold and get up to $1,500 of free silver PLUS a free safe today.

    Putin is once again attempting to restore the Soviet Union and, according to experts, could be poised to roll tanks into Ukraine as early as January. Senator Ted Cruz joins Michael Knowles and Liz Wheeler to illustrate how the Nord Stream 2 pipeline is a physical manifestation of Putin's imperial ambitions and break down the concrete measures Joe Biden could, but won't, take to prevent another American foreign policy disaster. Plus, in case you missed it, the Democratic plan to draft America's daughters is foiled once again, Jimmy Kimmel proves himself to be a sore loser (who's surprised?), and the January 6 commission is exposed as a kangaroo court.

    The woke (read: miserable) Left has decided that Thanksgiving is a day to reflect on how terrible America is. Nonsense! Thanksgiving is a day for, well, thanksgiving. Senator Ted Cruz and Michael Knowles are joined by Liz Wheeler for this special holiday episode. Together, the Audiocasting A-Team shares some quirky Turkey Day traditions, takes your silly and serious Thanksgiving-themed questions, and even tells the story of a little known Mayflower love triangle, putting Michael's Yale literature degree to the test.

    The verdict is in on the most controversial case in the country. Everybody has an opinion about Kyle Rittenhouse this week, but how many of them are informed by fact? We could certainly point out a few that aren't. Senator Ted Cruz circles the wagons with Michael Knowles and Liz Wheeler to break down what actually happened in Kenosha, what the law says about the circumstances, and what the politics at play are.

    Will Senator Cruz be indicted for murder? You might be forgiven for thinking so if you witnessed his recent exchange with Biden's DHS Secretary in a Senate hearing room. Today, the Senator joins Michael Knowles to answer some questions (unlike Mayorkas) about the incident in question. Namely, why don't the Democrats care about the kids in Biden's cages? Plus, because 0-2 wasn't enough of a beat down, our old pal Robert Francis “Beto" O'Rourke is running for Governor. P.S.

    This week, in what could reasonably be called the greatest day for Republicans in recent memory, the nation watched as we claimed major victories in Virginia. Among them, Glenn Youngkin soundly defeated Terry McAullife. Now, Senator Ted Cruz joins Michael Knowles to answer what should be the most important question of the week: how did Youngkin win, and how can we do it again? And, back by popular demand, the Senator and Michael officially welcome Liz Wheeler to the show with an extended mailbag segment. Plus, Senator Cruz reveals the terms of a wager he lost to another senator over the World Series outcome (you won't believe what he has to do now). All we can say is, we hope there will be video! -- Skip the trip to the post office and use Stamps.com this holiday season. Claim your four-week trial today with the promo code: VERDICT.
