Biden: Obama could rule on gun control by executive order

As Vice President Joe Biden gets ready to present the recommendations of his gun violence prevention task force, he is already talking about the ways in which the President could implement stricter gun laws (hint: it doesn’t involve Congress).

BIDEN: The president is going to act, or executive orders, executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet, but we're compiling it all with help of the attorney general and all the rest of the cabinet members, as well as legislative we believe as required. So we're here today to deal with a problem that requires immediate action, urgent action, and the president and I are determined to take action. This is not an exercise in photo opportunities or just getting to ask you all what your opinions are. We are – we are vitally interested in what you have to say. And as the president said, if our actions result in only saving one life, they're worth taking.

If the logic is simply: if it saves one life, ban it, there are a lot of things that will need to be scrubbed from society.

“If it saves one life, we should ban peanuts. If it saves one life, we should ban building things. We should ban sports. We should ban fishing. We should ban electricity, if it saves just one life,” Glenn said. “We should ban alcoholic beverages. We should ban hammers. We should ban knives.”

“If it saves just one life, we should ban coffee tables. If it saves one life, we should ban travel and mountains. If it saves just one life, we should ban subway trains,” he continued. “We should ban passenger aircraft. If it saves just one life, we should ban water. If it saves just one life, we should ban sleep. If it saves just one life, we should consider banning everything but sitting.”

On second thought, Glenn concluded that sitting was dangerous too. After all, if you spend your whole life sitting and become morbidly obese, the fire department will have to come, cut a hole in your wall, and cart you out to the hospital because chances are you are going to die.

While it seems that Biden’s logic of “saving one life” bans just about everything, Stu managed to find a caveat. “Interestingly too, if it saves one life, you would need guns because guns clearly save much more than one life when people break into your home to kill you,” Stu said. “You need guns to save lives in many circumstances.”

“If it just saves one life, we should arm every citizen,” Glenn concluded.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” While recent events, like the movie theater shootings in Aurora, Colorado or the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, are tragic, acting emotionally instead of rationally is never wise. And it has become clear that having the President unilaterally rule on an issue as controversial as gun control will do little but fan an already raging fire.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
