Impeachable: President Obama waives law that forbids U.S. from providing ‘aid and comfort’ to the enemy

Glenn opened the radio program this morning with some very troubling (and bizarre) news that lead him to call for President Obama’s impeachment. Yesterday, the President waived a federal provision specifically designed to prevent the U.S. from supplying arms to terrorist groups in order to begin providing military assistance to the Syrian rebels.

“Today I come to you with the news that our President actually waived the restriction on countries supplying arms to international terrorists, specifically Al‑Qaeda. And the reason why he waived that is because we're providing arms to international terrorists, specifically Al‑Qaeda,” Glenn said. “Now, if that isn't an act of treason, I don't know what is. If that is not an act of insanity, I don't know what is.”

“This isn't, ‘Well, we don't know who the terrorists are. We don't know who the rebels are.’ No, no. Mr. President, you apparently do know exactly who they are because you felt compelled to waive the restriction on arming them,” he continued. “Now, why would you do that? So you can no longer make the case ‘We don't know who these guys are’ because the President felt compelled to tell us who they are by waiving the restrictions. They're international terrorists. If that's not an act of suicide, if that's not an act finally of the President admitting we're on the wrong side – when you have to waive the law so you can arm terrorists, you're on the wrong side.”

While we know that not all of the rebels are terrorists, arming any faction that includes known terrorists is in direct violation of our federal laws, which is why President Obama was forced to waive the restrictions that prevented such action.

As Pat and Stu both explained, you wouldn’t eat something that was known to contain 15% of poison. So why would you arm a group of people with some percentage of a ‘poisonous’ underbelly?

“Because the president could go to jail if he didn't waive the law… You know, I know I just did a thing in the New York Times just, like, two weeks ago where I said I haven't called for impeachment of the President. I haven't called for it,” Glenn said. “I'm calling for the impeachment of the President of the United States. The President of the United States needs to be impeached.”

It has taken nearly five years and countless scandals for Glenn to utter the word “impeachment” in relation to President Obama, but it seems that his latest action – potentially aiding and abetting the enemy’ – might just be among the most egregious things this President has done.

“It's not politics. It's not politics. What do you stand for, America? If that one doesn't do it, nothing will,” Glenn said. “You are arming people…You are empowering them. This is not, ‘Hey, I disagree that we have knocked out Al Qaeda,’ which, we did, and obviously that's true. Everything the President told you on the run up that we got ‘Al Qaeda on the run,’ that's clearly not true now, is it? Because Al Qaeda is growing in Libya. Al Qaeda is growing in Egypt. Al Qaeda is growing, and we're arming them in Syria. So if those things you know, you could disagree with. This one, you're arming and aiding the enemies of the United States of America.”

“To add on,” Stu interjected, “for something [the President himself admits] is not a direct threat to the United States of America… But just to say you could come up with some crazy scenario in which you would help these groups that are not good, to help you against an enemy you deem a greater threat. There's no one who makes the case that Syria's a greater threat to us than Al Qaeda.”

“We did not get into bed with Hitler to defeat Japan. We did not do it,” Glenn said of the U.S. situation during World War II. “No one could say, ‘Let's give Hitler a whole bunch of arms so he can help us defeat Japan.’ Because even if they do defeat Japan, they will come and use those very arms against us. It's the height of insanity. But I also believe it is impeachable. I believe it is treason. And the President knows it's against the law. That's why he had to waive that law yesterday.”

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
