Kucinich goes after Obama on Libya

Glenn warned two years ago that Congress would be made irrelevant by the current administration and each passing day this prediction seems to be coming closer to reality. In no way is this transformation clearer than in the war in Libya.

Dennis Kucinich, a liberal who seems to be one of those against the war, has even filed a lawsuit against Gates and Obama.

“ They can tell it to the judge now because this is now a matter before the federal court. Our position is that they are in clear violation of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution of the United States, and they are in violation of the War Powers Act, and they can't claim that they got authority from NATO or authority from the UN to proceed in a war. They can't claim this isn't a war. You know, they can take this case to court as we did and now they are going to have to respond,” Kucinich told a reporter.

“They spent $750 million on this war in Libya, and what's that? Are we telling the people of the United States that that's not a war, that it's we can't mince words here. You know, if it looks like a war, it's a war. And so this administration has a responsibility to abide by the Constitution. In the end this isn't about personalities because the Constitution has a personality all of its own, and Article I, Section 8, the founders put in the hands of congress the war power, and nothing that this administration says can change that. So they are going to have to go to court now. This is not just a matter of political debate. This is a matter of legal, of legal principle.”

But when the reporter brought up the administration’s justification – no boots on the ground means there is no war – Kucinich shot back, “This isn't about footwear. This is about the Constitution of the United States.”

“I don't like the fact that, you know, people use the Constitution when it is in their favor and disregard it when it is not. You either are a constitutionalist or you are not. He is not a constitutionalist. Is he right here? Yes. Yes. It's not about footwear. It's not about what is the White House actually saying? They are saying that there's no hostilities. Define hostilities,” Glenn said.

Stu, however, felt that Kucinich was sincere in his statement.

“War Powers Act. You have 60 days,” Glenn said.

“This President is absolutely out of control. He is out of control. And if congress doesn't grab onto their power, this is it. This is the last bit of power you guys have.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
