Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, joined Glenn on radio this morning to discuss the growing number of ridiculous federal regulations that are destroying the country. Is it too late to turn things around?
"I am more concerned for our country now than I've ever been. I believe that right now we're probably at the most dangerous point in our constitutional republic that we've been in in at least 100 years. And a choice has to be made. Do we accept it and just see what happens, which would be unbelievably dangerous, or do we go ahead and fight back, which I believe is our only option?" Sekulow said.
"You resist. You reform. Then you restore...it has to be a collective effort. One person by themselves doesn't get to this," he continued.

What does he mean by resistance?
"We represented a large business that was challenging the Obamacare mandate. The HHS mandate. Remember, that was a couple of years ago. We ended up winning. We went to court for this large company. They simultaneously with the filing of a lawsuit, they get audit by the IRS. We go through the audit. No changes. No modifications. Everything is fine. We win the case at the Supreme Court of the United States. The IRS within a month sends out another letter within a month of them just closing the IRS case out, sends out another letter saying we're auditing you now for additional years. One of my law partners called me, Glenn, and said, what should we do? And I said, just tell them no. And you know what happened? The IRS folded because they don't want to be on Glenn Beck's program. And they don't want to be sued again. We sue them when they do these things and being held accountable. That's part of this. That's the resisting."
"These exemptions that these government agencies and these bureaucrats get where they do anything they want and are never held accountable. You cannot fire them. You cannot sue them. They cannot be held liable. We have to remove that immunity. That is a statutory fix that's not that complicated. We just have to get Republicans and Democrats too with a backbone to actually do it."
