Last Call: If you want Obamacare out, Sen. Mike Lee needs your support

Yesterday afternoon, TheBlaze broke the story about the coalition Senator Mike Lee is building to block and defund Obamacare. The Senator from Utah has recruited more than a dozen Senate Republicans so far and foresees that list of names growing quite a bit in the coming days.

Fifteen Republican senators, including Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.), Ted Cruz (Texas), John Cornyn (Texas), Rand Paul (Ky.), James Inhofe (Okla.), David Vitter (La.), Roger Wicker (Miss.), John Thune (S.D.), and Chuck Grassley (Iowa), plan to block a continuing resolution to keep the government funded beyond Sept. 30 if it includes funding for Obamacare.

“The president has said that he’s not willing and not able to enforce Obamacare as it was written,” Sen. Lee told TheBlaze in a phone interview. “And so he has chosen instead to enforce this law selectively.”

“He has picked out two things that he has said he won’t enforce. One is the employer mandate and the other is the requirement that the government obtain some kind of proof for those who are claiming eligibility for Obamacare exchange subsidies,” he added.

The senator continued, arguing that the president “doesn’t have the power” to selectively enforce and amend laws passed by Congress.

“Once a law is passed by Congress, in order to amend that law, you have to go back to Congress and you have to amend it in the same way that you passed the original law,” he said.

“If the president isn’t going to enforce this law, the American people shouldn’t be required to fund it.

“Those that feel this way should stand up and say they won’t vote for any continuing resolution that contains funding for further implementation and enforcement of Obamacare,” he added.

"Now, let me explain this to you," Glenn began. "The Republicans fought but then they started displaying politics and they thought, you know what?  We'll just, we'll get that 2010 election. Well, the 2010 election happened and then it failed to overturn anything.  It didn't do anything.  Then they thought, we're going to wait — we're going to wait on healthcare because Mitt Romney will get in, and Mitt Romney will change everything.  And that failed.  "Well, we have the Supreme Court and when it gets to Supreme Court, that will change every‑" and that failed.  And every time we delay, we delay for political reasons.  "Well, this, we can use this.  We'll use this in the presidential election.  We'll use this in the congressional election."  They're going to tell you right now that this is going to hurt the Senate election.  "You have a chance to take over the Senate!"

"The GOP is on the verge of taking over the Senate!  Let's just — shhh.  Don't do that."  Because what is a continuing resolution?  A continuing resolution is the way we have passed our budgets.  This is a country out of control.  Continuing resolution means we can't agree on a budget.  We just can't get one through.  Nobody will come and actually present a budget.  The president had, what is it, 99‑0 the last budgets that he has tried to pass?  Nobody will pass — his own party won't pass his budgets.  And so what does that mean?  So if the president can't come with a reasonable budget, then we have to shut the government down.  Because nobody's proposing a budget that makes any sense."

Basically, the President is trying to spend money the government doesn't have on policies the American people do not want. And to make matters worse, neither party is actually discussing any real cuts to the budget.

"There are no more lines in the sand," Glenn told listeners. "There are no more lines of defense. Stand. Stand for something. You want to pass a budget? Pass a budget. You want another continuing resolution because you want the house and the bling and the pool and apparently the plane? No.  No. You're not going to bypass congress on healthcare. We'll give you everything you want but not healthcare. That is the line in the sand, and this is the last opportunity. But this is going to require you getting on the phone with all of your friends and calling every senator in your state and say, "You sign on with Mike Lee. You sign on. No continuing resolution that includes healthcare.  No continuing resolution unless it has a carveout and we defund healthcare.  No more." You call your senator."

"This is not just about healthcare. This is about a president saying, "I'm going to pick and choose which laws I enforce," and he does not have the right to do it. This is about the Constitution," Glenn emphasized. "Get on the phone and call your senators right now. No continuing resolution without a carveout that excludes universal healthcare."

In the wake of the horrific Buffalo shooting, the left-wing media tried to paint all conservatives as subscribers to “replacement theory” — the idea that immigrants are taking over to such an extent that they will destroy white Western civilization. Of course, no serious conservative believes in this ugly, racist, dangerous ideology, but there is a ton of ACTUAL replacement going on, and it has nothing to do with immigration or racism.

What we saw yesterday in Uvalde, Texas, is more dark horrific evidence of the only replacement theory that ultimately matters because it affects everything. We’ve replaced God in society. Glenn argues it’s why gun control is ultimately useless — even though he completely understands our human impulse to DO something. While our culture has replaced God for rot, the Biden White House and Democrats are also working overtime to replace key elements of American political, legal, economic, and cultural life.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin of “LevinTV” tells Glenn why Media Matters' latest hit job on him over his Uvalde coverage is pathetic. “Stop pushing God out of the public square” is not a radical concept to help prevent evil from taking hold in our schools. He also takes on the Democrats’ attempts to destroy the Supreme Court, voting rights, and the separation of powers.

BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey of “Relatable” tells Glenn why she believes the Uvalde shooting reveals how we are failing young men in this country and what we must do to stop the replacement theory that threatens to keep an entire generation from becoming a benefit to society.

Glenn Beck addressed the incomprehensibly tragic mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on the radio program Wednesday, saying it's time to stop with the politics, from both sides, and focus on healing a nation that is tearing itself apart.

"It pains me to think about the political garbage that has happened in the last 12 hours," Glenn began. "I believe that we are on the verge of losing our nation, and the reason why we're about to lose our nation is the same reason some kid walked into an elementary school and shot and killed people. It's not the guns ... it's our society."

Glenn called the tragedies plaguing our nation' —kids shooting kids, committing suicide, dying from fentanyl, joining gangs, and suffering from depression and loneliness — are symptoms of a greater sickness.

"Where's the value of human life? The hatred that is being poured down our throats, the class division, the racism — make no mistake, it is intentional," he stated. "The best way to destroy a nation is to cut it apart. ... In our society, where are the ethics? What are ethics? It's your truth versus my truth. There is no absolute truth. And in a world where there is no truth, who gets to be God? Well, it depends on which group you're in I guess."

Glenn said America’s underlying problem is "a rotting in our soul" and until we "live in a nation that is willing to even recognize that there is something bigger than the self, and it has nothing to do with government, we'll never fix this problem."

"Let's not make this about Democrats and Republicans. Let's just make this about what the hell is going on because everything in our society is falling apart," he said. "And until you're willing to have that conversation, the rest of it is bullcrap."

Did Biden just let slip that record-high gas prices were PLANNED?

President Joe Biden on Monday appeared to praise record-high gas prices, saying it's all part of an “incredible transition” that will make America and the world better off.

“When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden explained during a joint press conference with Japan Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo.

Twitter wasn't buying Biden's most recent bunch of malarkey:





Glenn Beck has long been warning that progressive policies and regulations intended to cripple the fossil fuel industry would lead to skyrocketing oil and gas prices — and it's all by design. Back in 2008, President Barack Obama all but admitted as much when he said energy costs would "necessarily skyrocket” under his cap-and-trade plan.

On a recent episode of BlazeTV's "Glenn Beck Program," Glenn explained why he believes the current oil and gas catastrophe is all "part of the plan," as leftists continue to push their radical ESG agenda.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."
