'Petulant temper tantrum': Tara Setmayer rips Obama's immigration policy

President Obama has once again chosen to turn to his trusty pen, this time to enact his immigration reform policy. While those pesky Republicans in the House of Representatives refuse to "pass a darn bill," Obama has decided he will legislate via executive action on the issue.

"I take executive action only when we have a serious problem, a serious issue and Congress chooses to do nothing," the President said in a Rose Garden speech. "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."

On Tuesday's Glenn Beck Program, Dana Loesch filled in for Glenn and welcomed TheBlaze's Tara Setmayer to discuss the Obama Administration's new immigration plan and its never ending demonization of Republicans - particularly the Tea Party.

When you consider the Supreme Court ruled just a week ago that Obama's recess appointments were an abuse of power, the timing of this latest 'go it alone' announcement is particularly interesting.

"That press conference was borderline bizarre given the timing of it, given his attitude," Setmayer explained. "I called it a 'petulant temper tantrum' thrown by the President."

Not only did the President vow to act unilaterally to pass his agenda, he went ahead and blamed Republicans for supposedly forcing his hand. Apparently, Obama has failed to remember Congress is supposed to represent the will of the people.

"I mean [he is] coming out there and basically saying that, 'You know what? I don’t care that Congress, which is supposed to represent the people… I don’t care that the people have rejected the amnesty bill that I want pushed through Congress. I’m going to go at it alone, and it’s your fault,'" she said. "'You guys are making me do this because you won’t get anything done.'"

Ultimately, Setmayer believes the President was "intellectually dishonest" in his speech.

"He had the audacity to turn around and blame the Tea Party for the crisis on the border," Setmayer said. "'The Tea Party is holding up legislation, and it’s their fault that we have this influx of tens of thousands of unaccompanied illegal immigrant kids coming across the border.' I mean it was so intellectually dishonest. It was tough to watch actually."

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
