Critical Race Theory. Censorship. Socialism. Second Wave Feminism. Wokeism. This is what you get when Michael Knowles is in the hot seat! Interchanging armchairs for the day, Senator Ted Cruz interviews Michael on the dangerous fruits of political correctness that are springing up throughout our society. Going even deeper, Michael reveals where this cultural rot started and how we might yet be able to counteract it. (Spoiler alert: this story starts all the way back in the 1930s.) Oh yeah, and Michael wrote a book with words in it—yes, really. This is Verdict with Michael Knowles.
Having just returned stateside, Senator Ted Cruz has a lot to report about his time in Israel. The Senator sits down with Michael Knowles to break down what's happening with the revolt in Israel. Will there be a new government, and, if so, what happens to Bibi Netanyahu? Plus, the pair walks through the ATF's new rules on guns, Fauci's bombshell emails, Twitter's sudden "support" of free speech, and the Democrats' latest power grab. Buckle up, this one's going to be a wild ride!
How did 2 weeks turn into 14 months? Steve Deace joins Senator Ted Cruz and Michael Knowles to break down what Fauci and his army of unelected bureaucrats have been up to. Plus, the D.C. duo drops the conversation from the upper to the lower chamber in order to shed some light on the House Conference Chair saga and what it signals about the future of politics in America, a future that decidedly does not include The Artist Formerly Known As Price Harry.
Hamas is firing rockets into the state of Israel, Israel is fighting back to ensure its survival, and—like a madman—Senator Ted Cruz is headed right into the middle of it all. For the moment though, the Senator is safe and sound with co-host Michael Knowles in Washington. Together on this episode, the two wonkish wordsmiths break down the Mideast conflict in its entirety—what’s at play today and how we got here, what changed since the Trump years, and—the real question—why so many Democrats are openly supporting terrorists.
Reaching into the ever-overstuffed mailbag, Senator Ted Cruz and Michael Knowles dive deep on the burning questions of the day including some suspicious circumstances in Wuhan, the future of the Hyde Amendment in a Democrat-controlled Congress, and what we can expect the economy to do over the next 6 months. Plus, an answer to the most urgent question—how is Michael's Dogecoin portfolio doing?
Senator Ted Cruz joins Michael Knowles straight from the Hill, where a lot of things just happened that you probably didn’t hear about. The Senator introduces forty six—yes, really—amendments to the Democrats' precious Corrupt Politicians Act. Is this top priority for Democrats—S. 1 and H.R. 1—one of the most dangerous pieces of legislation ever introduced on the floor of the United States Congress? Also, what the hell is a "ghost gun?" Democrats may have finally lost it as they create a made-up term to describe a made-up problem. Plus, does Senator Cruz have a Hill digital director job in his future? Twitter says yes.
It’s wall-to-wall mailbag today in the Verdict studio! After much too much of a hiatus, Michael Knowles takes a break from asking Senator Cruz his questions and instead poses yours. Some of today's questions are funny, some are smart, and some are even a little irreverent. Caitlyn Jenner 2020? Biden’s biggest blunder last week? How screwed are we, really? Your favorite dialoguing duo has the answers to this and more.
Joe Biden ~finally~ addresses a joint session of Congress, and Senator Ted Cruz was there for it all. Well, most of it. Fresh off a good night’s rest, the Senator joins Michael Knowles to break down Biden’s boring—but radical—remarks. Double masked in a stammering sleepy temperament, Biden unveiled what may be the most radical policy package any president has ever presented in his first 100 days. Clearly benefitting from his beauty rest, the Senator reveals what the Democrats are planning to do, and what we can do to stop them. Plus, did you catch Biden’s big beta moment in Nancy’s house?
Illegal crossings are up, detention facilities are overrun, and kids are being used as political pawns. We are in the throes of a national crisis—unless you ask Joe Biden. Senator Ted Cruz is heading to the front lines of this battle to assess the damage, but first, he pulls up a chair with Michael Knowles to break down the disastrous consequences of Biden’s border blunders.
Senator Ted Cruz and Michael Knowles move some cactuses around and make room to welcome Governor Scott Walker to the Verdict studio. The Governor announces he is putting in motion a bold action plan to take education and culture back from the clutches of the radical Left—and this Long Game just might involve your favorite podcast! Plus, the trio sounds the alarm on what may be the largest attempted power grab by Democrats yet (you may not realize just how bad it is until you hear this).

We're only halfway through the first 100 days of the Biden administration, and everything seems relatively quiet.

After much sound and fury, the Democrats have rested their case in the second impeachment "trial" of Donald Trump. Michael Knowles quizzes Senator Ted Cruz on what the heck is going on. Plus, the podcasting pals zoom out to cover cancel culture more broadly. Is the same nasty double standard the Left is using to cancel Trump responsible for the ouster of Gina Carano?
As if we rolled the tape back 12 months, the Trump impeachment trial is underway, and Michael Knowles is joined by Senator Ted Cruz to break it all down. Is there a legal argument for removal? Is it constitutional to hold an impeachment trial for a former president? Plus, we get an answer to perhaps the most important question of all—how’s the food in the Senate cafeteria?
Michael Knowles joins Senator Ted Cruz LIVE in Miami at Young America’s Foundation’s Freedom Conference to talk all things big and bad—big government, big business, and big tech. The podcasting pair breaks down how this accumulation of power is fundamentally inimical to liberty and what the American people can do to preserve freedom in the Left’s new America. Plus, audience members from across the country ask their questions in a special live mailbag segment. -- Subscribe to YAF on YouTube to watch more top videos with Michael Knowles and Senator Cruz: http://youtube.com/yaftv

@8:15. The Science would be better expressed for those with antibodies to the virus... not for someone who has had the vaccine.

I'm as Conservative as they come.. and I've watch Republicans that's I've voted for for 30 years SIT ON THEIR HANDS.. YOU GUYS GET NOTHING DONE!!!! only since Trump stood up did half of you get onboard.. or wake up and start doing what your hired to do.. you guys need to suck it up and take your part of the blame. so all of a sudden when Americans get their election stolen! they all see you guys doing your normal song and dance... you guys are so sold out you disgust the American people ...the current Republicans are not what American stand for. your detached fat cats. won't go against the grain because it will cost you your Bmw, your status,your social standing.. we are so surprised the stinking liberals are doing what they always do... and the good guys are supposed to keep it in check! do what you say your going to do when your voted in! everyone surprised that Americans are fed up. Sires if you were Americans you would be fed up also! I want even aware of what a swamp DC was until the patriot Donald J Trump stood in the gap... thank you Lord for Donald Trump

Cruz says Eichmann testified at Nuremberg. This is not correct. Eichmann was in hiding during the Nuremberg trial.

please explain to us the Nesara Act, and while at it explain why, after all we know about the so called riot on 1/6, after we seen the footage from people who were there, and we know unequivocally that they were absolutely not President Trump supporters, and infact were antifa and blm, please tell us why Lindsey Graham, your friend, and fellow R.I.N.O.s, were so quick to turn on President Trump and Trump supporters. I am greatly disappointed and disgusted in their acts. I came back to the republican party because of President Trump, if he starts his party I will undoubtedly join his party.

When will we hear from you again? I'm surprised with everything going on the last few weeks that we haven't had more podcasts. I'd love to hear some commentary on things like the results of the senate runoff in Georgia and the looming catastrophes that will cause, the lack of evidence found in the challenges to states' election results, the "storming of the capital", the transition between Trump and Biden, the garbage Exec Orders Biden signed today and how long you think it will take before we have another monumental event in inaugurating President Harris.

Ted Cruz turned out to be a sellout. A little taint tickling from Trump was all it took for him to not just betray his poor wife, but to betray the entire nation. He’s going to lose all his committee roles and get dressed down in public on live TV by McConnell or maybe even Schumer. Either way it’ll be less than he deserves for the damage he’s doing to the country.

I had Great respect for you, until you starting buying into the White House's antics. The pod casts you've recorded towards the end of 2020 have shown how easily you are bought by fame and spot light! Give us a break.. my goodness you are more of a super hero (in your eyes) than EVERY super hero of all time. I'm glad to have seen that now. If you were EVER running for president in the future please know you would Never get my vote. I believed in you and now I don't, God Bless America

Great show. I love seeing politicians chat and express their opinions on formats such as this. Seemingly low pressure, able to joke around, laugh, and yet still express opinions on relevant matters of the day. Thank you. Also, does anybody really think the dems are going to give up thier tyrannical rule over these cities, after getting away with it for so long?
