"Do not jam this down our throats": Glenn responds to Obama's plan for immigration reform

Yesterday, President Obama held a press conference where he declared that he would take more executive action action on immigration reform without Congress, claiming that House Republicans are refuse to “pass a darn bill.”

Last week, House Speaker John Boehner told President Obama that the House of Representatives would not vote on an immigration reform bill this year.

“Our country and our economy would be stronger today if House Republicans had allowed a simple yes or no vote on this bill or for that matter any bill. They would be following the will of the majority of the American people to support reform,” President Obama said. “Instead, they have proven again and again that they are unwilling to stand up to the Tea Party in order to do what’s best for the country. The worst part of is a bunch of them know better.”

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus condemned the Presidents push to act without Congress. He said, “After being rebuked 13 times by a unanimous Supreme Court in just three years and with the House of Representatives filing a lawsuit to curb Obama’s presidential overreach, you’d think this administration would get the message. Our Constitution is not a list of suggestions. Our founders were not mistaken when they created three separate branches of government.”

Glenn is on vacation this week, but wrote in with a response to the escalating immigration issue. After praising Priebus’s statement, he reiterated the need to seal the border and send home immigrants here illegally, while still treating them with compassion.

Read his note below:

The last few lines come from Reince Priebus. I would feel so much better if the GOP corruption weren't so complete (see Cochran scandal now brewing) but his words in this story are comforting. I have met him on one occasion. It didn't go well. He seems like a nice guy but there does come a time that you have to choose sides. Not just political but more importantly ethical. What we are facing is the destruction of our nation. We are indeed lawless. How the president believes he has the moral authority to ram through HIS border solutions when he is directly responsible for the crisis on the border is beyond insane.

This has nothing to do with the Republicans vs Tea Party or Democrats. This has everything to do with THE LAW. We are watching our country turn into Venezuela. That might sound outlandish but remember what Obamas FCC czar said about that "important democratic revolution" 5 years ago.

We must stop the illegals coming in first. The president needs to give a definitive speech to South America and Mexico: ‘Enough is enough. It is dangerous for not just the citizens of America but wildly dangerous for YOUR children.’ He needs to say that he takes responsibility for the "misunderstanding" but "let me be clear" your kids will not stay here or become citizens this way. Also, dare it ask,'How many drug dealers or terrorist have slipped through now because our border agents can't spend the time looking for the bad guys?’

Second, we need to send all of these people back. Then we discuss things like a better Visa system as it really is broken.

In the meantime, we as citizens must be clear with government ALL BRANCHES of our government, do not jam this down our throats. Obey the law, then we will talk.

We also need to pray for those in our border towns. They are living in a very dangerous world. Food, shelter, disease and crime. Lord please help them.

We must also do everything we can to relieve some of the pressure by helping feed these children and not harden our hearts. They are GOING HOME but in better shape than they arrived. We must be the example. The shining city on the hill. Believe me, all the eyes of the world will be on this one. And Hollywood will be all too happy to do a "we are the world" song and make all of us who are for the rule of law into the bad guys.

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.
