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."

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
