Obama blames Republicans, promises executive action on immigration reform

Well, you probably saw this one coming.

During a Rose Garden speech on Monday, President Obama vowed to take executive action on immigration reform because those pesky Republicans won’t “pass a darn bill.”

“I don’t prefer taking administrative action,” Obama claimed. “I’d rather see permanent fixes to the issues we face. Certainly that’s true on immigration. I’ve made that clear. I would love nothing more than bipartisan legislation to pass the House, the Senate, and land on my desk so I can sign it.”

“I take executive action only when we have a serious problem, a serious issue and Congress chooses to do nothing,” he continued. “In this situation, the failure of the House Republicans to pass a darn bill is bad for our security, it’s bad for our economy, and it’s bad for our future.”

With that in mind, Obama said he would be redirecting resources to the southern border to deal with the influx of illegal border crossings. This year alone, it is expected some 60,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant children will cross the border.

This speech followed a confirmation from Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) that the House would not be voting on immigration reform legislation.

Interestingly, Obama’s executive action declaration comes in the wake of last week’s Supreme Court decision that the President had overstepped his authority with some of his appointments. Meanwhile, House Republicans are prepared to take legal actions against prior presidential actions taken without congressional authorization.

On radio this morning, TheBlaze Radio Network’s Doc Thompson and Skip LaCombe filled in for Glenn and attempted to run through some of the President’s speech – though the blatant inaccuracies ensured they couldn’t make it very far.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
