#DefundTheGOP: Glenn reacts to reports Boehner conspired to have Congress exempt from Obamacare

Glenn opened the radio program this morning with a shocking story out of Washington D.C. Yesterday, David Cone, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s chief of staff, leaked a series of leaked emails sent by House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) chief of staff Mike Sommers suggesting there was coordination between the leadership of the House and Senate to get Congress exempted from Obamacare.

“This is officially my snapping point. I have had it with John Boehner. I have thought he was not a good guy for a very long time. Not on our side. We all know that. We all know that,” an exasperated Glenn said. “But there's a difference between not a good guy – not on your side – and somebody who is knifing you in the back. I want to make it very, very clear, John Boehner is knifing you in the back. And there's no two ways about it.”

The leaked emails, which were first reported by Politico, show Boehner worked behind-the-scenes earlier this year to clarify a provision in the Affordable Care Act that would have forced members of Congress and their aides into the Obamacare exchanges.

According to Politico:

[B]ehind-the-scenes, Boehner and his aides worked for months with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), and others, to save these very same, long-standing [congressional Obamacare] subsidies, according to documents and e-mails provided to POLITICO. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was also aware of these discussions, the documents show.

“Now remember, there's no way for a Republican to get away with saying, ‘I know you have to join Obamacare, but we're not going to.’ That was one of the things: Make Congress abide by their own laws. Make them feel the pain that they have inflicted on all of us in every shape and form. Make them abide by the same laws.”

One the more egregious emails shows Boehner’s office was aware of the political potency of seeking a Congressional exemption, for they discussed how to disguise a planned meeting on the subject with President Obama as a meeting on immigration reform.

“So, here is the letter. He writes, or his chief of staff writes to Harry Reid about how they have to get into see the President to save the Congressional subsidies. They need to see the President and do some backroom, off the record, deal,” Glenn explained. “John Boehner's chief of staff writes, we can't let it get out there that this is for Boehner and Reid to carve out the requirement of Obamacare. Got it? We can't let it get out. We have to find some way to get them to the President, quoting, ‘I am even okay if the President is hauling us down to talk about the next steps on immigration. I really don't care what we say it's about. It just can't be about what we know it's about.’ End quote.”

The Democratic Party has allowed itself to be overrun by progressives, and Glenn wondered if the Republican Party is now facing a similar fate.

“Let me ask the Republicans. Are you as dumb as the Democrats have been because the Democrats allowed the progressives to take over their party,” Glenn said. “Republicans, the evidence is here. John Boehner is a lying thief. He is trying to portray himself as something he is not. You now have the evidence of his chief of staff in bed with Harry Reid saying, ‘Can we bury this? Can't we just make this happen? Can't we just keep the subsidies for us while we pretend to fight against them?’ So now it's up to you. You have the information.”

What is the best way to get the Republican Party back on track? Get rid of the so-called Republicans, like John Boehner and others, who are no different than their progressive counterparts on the left. How do you get rid of them? Stop sending the Republican Party money.

Glenn created a hash tag to kick start this movement: #DefundTheGOP. Glenn pleaded with the audience to not give another dime to the GOP until the money stops going to people like Boehner, Sen. John Cornyn, Rep. Pete Sessions, Governor Chris Christie, and others.

“I guarantee you, John Boehner would step down today, if the big donors would actually come to the plate today and say, ‘I've given my last dime to the Republican Party until john Boehner steps down – not as speaker of the house – but resigns. Until that happens, you don't get a dime from me. Not one dime from me,’” Glenn said. “If everybody who has ever given any money would call their congressman and call GOP Headquarters and say, ‘Don't you ever ask me for a dime. Don't you ever send me an email. Don't you do it.’ There's step one: #DefundTheGOP.”

So what does the future hold for the Republican Party if John Boehner continues to get his way?

“I'm pretty good at predicting the future. I'm pretty good at seeing the trends. If you don't come off of this road now, you are going to have a GOP that is just like the Democrats. And your choice will then be Chris Christie or Hilary Clinton. Which one you want? I don't want either of them,” Glenn said. “You want a real choice? Good. Right now you can have that. If everybody got on the phone, everybody called John Boehner, Everybody called their representative and said, ‘I'm done with you. You know, you are a good representative but unless you can convince him, you are going to have to step out of your party. I won't give any of you another dime.’”

“You are a steward of your money. You are supposed to do the right thing. Do you really believe giving your money to the GOP and to John Cornyn and to John Boehner to have them decide who is going to protect the Republican freedom [is the right choice],” Glenn asked. “I ask you to pray on it. Do you really think that's the way to go? These guys are a knife in the back. Not a dime from me. #DefundTheGOP.”

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
