Hail to the King! Obama's latest power grab

Is Obama a dictator? Some of his recent statements certainly indicate that he intends to act like one, at least in the strictest sense of the term.

On radio this morning, Glenn played audio of the President giving a speech declaring his intentions to operate without Congress as much as possible. He said that those he disagreed with were blocking any movement, and he would work without the Legislative Branch wherever he could if they were not in step with his agenda.

“Does anybody think that the reason that we got in such a financial mess, the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, the worst economic crisis in a generation, that the reason was because of too much oversight of the financial industry?”

(Every sane person ever would yell: YES!!!!)

Obama continued, “Of course not.  We shouldn't be weakening oversight, we shouldn't be weakening accountability. We should be strengthening it, especially when it comes to living up to families like yours.”

“ And I refuse to take no for an answer,” he said.

“ It's not your choice whether you get to take no for an answer or not.  That's not your role,” Stu chided.

“He's king now.  He's King Obama,” Pat joked. “As president of the United States, you don't have the power not to take no for an answer.  If congress tells you no, the answer is no.”

“You are a servant, not a dictator,” Glenn said.

“He said it before.  He said it all before.  He's tired of waiting around and he'll go around congress any way,” Glenn said.

“It's exactly what we said on one of our first shows over at Fox.  Two and a half years ago.  Congress is going to be irrelevant.  Well, they're irrelevant,” Glenn explained.

Obama said that while he would continue to work with Congress where he could, he said “when Congress refuses to act, and as a result, hurts our economy and puts our people at risk, then I have an obligation as President to do what I can without them.”

“I’m not going to stand by while a minority in the Senate puts party ideology ahead of the people that we were elected to serve,” he added.

“Americans, hear what your president is saying,” Glenn warned. “I'll work within the system but if they won't move, then I will dictate.”

“Yeah.  He says I will give Republicans every opportunity to agree with me,” Stu said. “And when they do not agree with me, I'll do what I want.”

“There are those that want to destroy our republic and our Constitution and they are in our own government.  These people that swore to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic, some of them are enemies of our Constitution” Glenn warned.

“Here's the President going around the Constitution.”

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.
