“This is what a dictator does": Obama enacts DREAM Act without vote

President Obama may have just made his most disturbing move yet. Forget the legislative process, he’s just granting immunity to illegal immigrants because he wants to. No Congress, no nothing. A cowardly act clearly designed to pander for votes - horrible.

TheBlaze.com is reporting that the Obama Administration will stop deporting and start granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. Writers note: Ironic that someone whose starting point of legality is “an illegal immigrant” would be capable of leading a “law-abiding life”- interesting logic.

The policy change, announced Friday by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants who have lived in fear of deportation. It also bypasses Congress and partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act, a long-sought but never enacted plan to establish a path toward citizenship for young people who came to the United States illegally but who have attended college or served in the military.

On radio this morning, it’s safe to say that Glenn was less than pleased about this move from the Obama White House. He noted that the president isn’t trying to change the nation’s policies.

“He’s not trying to get this through Congress. He is just, in a breakthrough fashion, seizing power,” Glenn told listeners. “This is exactly what a dictator does, not an American president.  We are a constitutional republic.  They don't do that.  He doesn't have the ability.  The Department of Homeland Security doesn't have the authority to do this.  Obama is now stopping all deportations for certain classes of illegal aliens.  Essentially he is going to put in place the DREAM Act without dealing with the hassles of debating it, voting it, discussing it.  He's just doing it.”

The plan coming from this administration would make illegals who are currently under 30 and were brought to the United States before the age of 16 immune to deportation if they have been living in the country for at least 5 continuous years.

“So you have to be a consistent law breaker to get this benefit,” Stu commented.

“This is pandering on a scale this country has never seen before,” Glenn said, while explaining that President Obama has just seized power in dictator-like fashion to mobilize the Hispanic vote without spending a dime on Spanish radio and television.

Glenn has been warning Congress for years to take a stand against the lawlessness of the Obama Administration or they would become irrelevant. Today’s move on immigration appears to be the biggest example of their irrelevancy in the eyes of Barack Obama yet.

“He's just doing it through the Department of Homeland Security,” Glenn said.

“Meanwhile, Janet Napolitano is telling us that the border is now better than it's ever been,” he continued. “That is an out and out outrageous lie. This is one of the most important topics of our lifetime what's happening on the border. It is a war zone. It is worse than a war zone. What's happening in Pakistan on the border, what's happening in Iraq on a border is not as bad as what's happening in our own country on our border.”

In Glenn’s new book COWARDS: What Politicians, Radicals, and The Media Refuse to Say, Glenn exposes just how dangerous the situation on our southern border really is.

“The cowards in congress won't deal with it, the cowards in the media won't deal with it, the cowards in the Oval Office won't deal with it – President Barack Obama is a coward,” Glenn said.

It would be one thing if the president found a way to convince voters that this legislation was the way to go, and they told their congressmen this is what they wanted, and so the House and Senate voted on the legislation. But that’s not what happened. President Obama knows he can’t make the case.

“He knows you’ll never go for it,” Glenn told listeners this morning, “and so he just takes it. It's one thing to say that that's a mark of a courageous man just moving forward. Not when you have all of the power, not when it's a move to give you even more power. It's the act of a coward. Based on every crazy thing like news reports and word of border guards, words of eye witnesses, what's happening on the border is out of control.”

In COWARDS, the border is one of the 13 key topics Glenn focuses on and exposes the lies being told to the public and the cowards telling them. He covers the violence from the drug cartels to how our government is hiding the spillover violence.

“Spillover violence entails deliberate, planned attacks by the cartels on U.S. assets including civilian, military, or law enforcement officials, innocent U.S. citizens, or physical institutions such as government buildings, consulate or businesses. This definition does not include trafficker or trafficking, whether perpetrated in Mexico or the U.S. – coordinated, intentional attacks on government buildings is spillover violence,” Glenn explained. “In other words, if a drug cartel member beheads five rival drug cartel members in the middle of Dallas, DHS doesn't consider that spillover violence.”

“Don’t take my word for it,” Glenn said of the information he was sharing about the border violence. He told listeners all of these details and many more are all found in chapter 6 of COWARDS, ‘Bordering on Insanity: Drugs, Terrorists, and Murder in Our Backyard,’ and backed up with 50 pages of footnotes.

“If you look at the chapter on the drug cartels and what's really happening on our border and how Napolitano and Department of Homeland Security are criminally negligent at best for what is happening and you tie that together with the information on the Muslim Brotherhood and then you tie that together with a chapter on George Soros and then you tie those three things together with what the president just did today and you begin to understand what you're up against. You begin to understand who this president is,” Glenn said. “You begin to understand that many people in the United States government are either asleep at the switch or they're on the wrong side.”

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

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.
