Obama’s blatant disregard of the rule of law

Following his scathing critique of President Obama’s leadership over the last five years, Glenn offered a list of situations in which the President decided not to obey the law.

“I want to show you a list of the instances in which the President has decided that he's not going to obey the law,” Glenn said. “He's just going to change the law and pick and choose.”

“He's done that with healthcare, singled out certain groups that don't have to abide by it,” Pat said. “Defense of Marriage Act, ignored it – completely threw it out the window because he didn't like it.

“He didn't change it,” Glenn clarified. “He just decided not to enforce it.”

“They are not going to enforce the immigration laws, not going to deport people anymore,” Pat continued. “Citizens United. They whined about it again yesterday. Citizens United was decided by the Supreme Court. What do we always hear about the healthcare? It was ruled Constitutional by the Supreme Court. It's done.”

“However there's two things on that. The purse strings start in the House of Representatives and it was put in the Constitution for this very thing – that in case people were making a mistake, it’s the representatives – not the Senate, not the president – those closest, they believed, to the people, the representatives said this can't happen. The representatives could defund. That's Constitutional. Saying my friends in this labor union don't have to pay it. That's not constitutional. But defunding something is Constitutional,” Glenn explained. “I don't know a single soul in America, even the progressives, that would say this is right… Big government and big corporations don't play by the same rules. The President just gave waivers to the law. So, these companies don't have to abide by the law. That's not constitutional. Tell me that's right. No one can tell you that's right.”

When it comes to the current debt ceiling debate, you find similar flaws in the President’s actions.

“We're going to raise the debt ceiling. We're going to raise it a trillion dollars. That doesn't mean we're taking on more debt. Could I just ask for a definition? I hate to ask to go to the Webster dictionary. Please let me ask for a definition. Debt-ceiling,” Glenn asked. “That means your debt can go no higher than this amount. Why would you raise the ceiling saying your debt can go no higher than this amount? Why would you raise that a trillion dollars if you are not incurring more debt? Answer. It's a game. This is the way they think they can get away with it. ‘We're not incurring more debt. We're just paying the bills that we already incurred.’”

“No,” Pat said, "you can do that with the current debt ceiling.”

“But no, because we've just adopted healthcare,” Glenn concluded. “We got the numbers wrong, so we need to take on more debt because the numbers don’t add up.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

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.
