“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.”

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
