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.”

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
