Glenn: "The President is a pathological liar."

"The President is a pathological liar."

That's the bold statement Glenn made to his radio listeners this morning, and not one he makes lightly.

For the last four years, President Obama has toured the country, often making false claims or not following through on past promises — but lately, the lies have escalated to a disturbing level. A level so alarming that Obama-fan David Letterman even noted his disappointment.

Glenn let President Obama do the talking this morning, allowing our "leader" to back up his claim in his own words.

The first example was from Monday night's debate during a question on the subject of sequestration.

"This is so unbelievably dangerous to the United States," Glenn said this morning. "It is a fiscal cliff that will pound us and tear us apart. It will debone the military — it's automatic, bloody cuts."

Before playing the president's words during the debate, he wanted to explain why it's so important.

"The president knows that anybody who knows about this [sequestration] — if you're debating Mitt Romney — you can't say that this was your idea," Glenn explained. "You can't have anything to do with it, and you have to get off this topic right away, because a business-mind, like Mitt Romney, somebody that can actually talk to you about the fundamentals of the economy, will tell you exactly what this will do to it."

Basically, President Obama "had" to distance himself from it and had to say, 'it's not going to happen.' Unfortunately for the president, not only does Glenn have the audio from the debate, he also had audio of the president discussing the sequestration over a year ago.

President Obama: "First of all, the sequestration is not something that I proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen."

…and here's the old one:

President Obama: "It's going to happen — one way or another. We've got 1 trillion dollars locked in, and either Congress comes up with 1.2 trillion dollars, which so far they've failed to do, or the sequester kicks in and these automatic spending cuts will occur that bring in an addition 1.2 trillion dollars in deficit deduction."

"I think the president is being very very clear here," Glenn said sarcastically. "That's going to happen. That's not going to happen. That's going to happen. That's not going to happen."

"I hope he hasn't caught Romnesia," Stu joked.

Bob Woodward (not exactly a "conservative hack") described the president's word on the sequestration to Politico like this:

"'What the president said is not correct. He is mistaken, and it is refuted by the people that work for him.' Woodward reports in his book that White House Office of Management Director Jack Lou and Legislative Director Rob Neighbors took to proposal for sequestration to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and then it was presented to Congressional Republicans."

So the Republicans were not first, but third on the proposal for sequestration.

"So the president is lying to the American people," Glenn followed up. "And his own people have verified it in Bob Woodward's book."

So the first lie is that Congress proposed the measure. The second lie is that it wouldn't happen.

Again, here are the president's words during the debate on the sequestration:

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  "First of all sequestration is not not something that I proposed.  It's something that Congress proposed.  It will not happen."

Twenty-four hours later however, President Obama does an interview with the Des Moines Register:

"So when you combine the Bush tax cuts expiring, the sequester in place, the commitment of both myself and my opponent — at least Governor Romney claims he wants to reduce the deficit — are going to be in a position, where I believe, we're going to solve that big piece of business."

It's important to point out that this quote from the Des Moines Register was supposed to be off-the-record.

"He thought no one would ever hear about it," Stu pointed out. "He was talking to reporters to try and form their stories. He did not think that anyone would ever hear those words."

But the Des Moines Register did its job, unlike most media outlets. The Des Moines Register thought thought it was too important and that the people of the United States deserved to hear this.

Pathological? Sure sounds like it. Surprisingly enough, this is what he is now touting on the campaign trail about Mitt Romney:

President Obama: "There is no more serious issue on a campaign than trust. Trust matters.  And here's the thing: Iowa, you know me.  You know that I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. There's some folks in this crowd that have probably been flowing me since I was running for the United States Senate. Like this guy right here, who I served with in the United States Senate, George Shatter. And you could take a video tape of things I said ten years ago, twelve years ago, and you could say 'man, this is the same guy'."

"We're going to do that!" Glenn said.

"Because, as he said, trust is important.  There's nothing more important.  Just like Nixon said, "You have to know if your President is a crook."  Well, it is important now isn't it? I'm so glad Mr. President you brought this up."

In light of the national conversation surrounding the rights of free speech, religion and self-defense, Mercury One is thrilled to announce a brand new initiative launching this Father's Day weekend: a three-day museum exhibition in Dallas, Texas focused on the rights and responsibilities of American citizens.

This event seeks to answer three fundamental questions:

  1. As Americans, what responsibility do we shoulder when it comes to defending our rights?
  2. Do we as a nation still agree on the core principles and values laid out by our founding fathers?
  3. How can we move forward amidst uncertainty surrounding the intent of our founding ideals?

Attendees will be able to view historical artifacts and documents that reveal what has made America unique and the most innovative nation on earth. Here's a hint: it all goes back to the core principles and values this nation was founded on as laid out in the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights.

Exhibits will show what the world was like before mankind had rights and how Americans realized there was a better way to govern. Throughout the weekend, Glenn Beck, David Barton, Stu Burguiere, Doc Thompson, Jeffy Fisher and Brad Staggs will lead private tours through the museum, each providing their own unique perspectives on our rights and responsibilities.

What happened?

A New York judge ruled Tuesday that a 30-year-old still living in his parents' home must move out, CNN reported.

Failure to launch …

Michael Rotondo, who had been living in a room in his parents' house for eight years, claims that he is owed a six-month notice even though they gave him five notices about moving out and offered to help him find a place and to help pay for repairs on his car.

“I think the notice is sufficient," New York State Supreme Court Judge Donald Greenwood said.

What did the son say?

Rotondo “has never been expected to contribute to household expenses, or assisted with chores and the maintenance of the premises, and claims that this is simply a component of his living agreement," he claimed in court filings.

He told reporters that he plans to appeal the “ridiculous" ruling.

Reform Conservatism and Reaganomics: A middle road?

Senator Marco Rubio broke Republican ranks recently when he criticized the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act by stating that “there's no evidence whatsoever that the money's been massively poured back into the American worker." Rubio is wrong on this point, as millions of workers have received major raises, while the corporate tax cuts have led to a spike in capital expenditure (investment on new projects) of 39 percent. However, the Florida senator is revisiting an idea that was front and center in the conservative movement before Donald Trump rode down an escalator in June of 2015: reform conservatism.

RELATED: The problem with asking what has conservatism conserved

The "reformicons," like Rubio, supported moving away from conservative or supply-side orthodoxy and toward policies such as the expansion of the child and earned income tax credits. On the other hand, longstanding conservative economic theory indicates that corporate tax cuts, by lowering disincentives on investment, will lead to long-run economic growth that will end up being much more beneficial to the middle class than tax credits.

But asking people to choose between free market economic orthodoxy and policies guided towards addressing inequality and the concerns of the middle class is a false dichotomy.

Instead of advocating policies that many conservatives might dismiss as redistributionist, reformicons should look at the ways government action hinders economic opportunity and exacerbates income inequality. Changing policies that worsen inequality satisfies limited government conservatives' desire for free markets and reformicons' quest for a more egalitarian America. Furthermore, pushing for market policies that reduce the unequal distribution of wealth would help attract left-leaning people and millennials to small government principles.

Criminal justice reform is an area that reformicons and free marketers should come together around. The drug war has been a disaster, and the burden of this misguided government approach have fallen on impoverished minority communities disproportionately, in the form of mass incarceration and lower social mobility. Not only has the drug war been terrible for these communities, it's proved costly to the taxpayer––well over a trillion dollars has gone into the drug war since its inception, and $80 billion dollars a year goes into mass incarceration.

Prioritizing retraining and rehabilitation instead of overcriminalization would help address inequality, fitting reformicons' goals, and promote a better-trained workforce and lower government spending, appealing to basic conservative preferences.

Government regulations tend to disproportionately hurt small businesses and new or would-be entrepreneurs. In no area is this more egregious than occupational licensing––the practice of requiring a government-issued license to perform a job. The percentage of jobs that require licenses has risen from five percent to 30 percent since 1950. Ostensibly justified by public health concerns, occupational licensing laws have, broadly, been shown to neither promote public health nor improve the quality of service. Instead, they serve to provide a 15 percent wage boost to licensed barbers and florists, while, thanks to the hundreds of hours and expensive fees required to attain the licenses, suppressing low-income entrepreneurship, and costing the economy $200 billion dollars annually.

Those economic losses tend to primarily hurt low-income people who both can't start businesses and have to pay more for essential services. Rolling back occupational licenses will satisfy the business wing's desire for deregulation and a more free market and the reformicons' support for addressing income inequality and increasing opportunity.

The favoritism at play in the complex tax code perpetuates inequality.

Tax expenditures form another opportunity for common ground between the Rubio types and the mainstream. Tax deductions and exclusions, both on the individual and corporate sides of the tax code, remain in place after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Itemized deductions on the individual side disproportionately benefit the wealthy, while corporate tax expenditures help well-connected corporations and sectors, such as the fossil fuel industry.

The favoritism at play in the complex tax code perpetuates inequality. Additionally, a more complicated tax code is less conducive to economic growth than one with lower tax rates and fewer exemptions. Therefore, a simpler tax code with fewer deductions and exclusions would not only create a more level playing field, as the reformicons desire, but also additional economic growth.

A forward-thinking economic program for the Republican Party should marry the best ideas put forward by both supply-siders and reform conservatives. It's possible to take the issues of income inequality and lack of social mobility seriously, while also keeping mainstay conservative economic ideas about the importance of less cumbersome regulations and lower taxes.

Is this what inclusivity and tolerance look like? Fox News host Tomi Lahren was at a weekend brunch with her mom in Minnesota when other patrons started yelling obscenities and harassing her. After a confrontation, someone threw a drink at her, the moment captured on video for social media.
