Obama's Latest Land Grab: 2 Million Acres in Utah

President Obama made history last year in a massive, 260 million acre expansion of national public lands and waters, more than any previous president in history, including Teddy Roosevelt. Apparently, the president wasn't satisfied with that milestone. He now has his sights on an additional two million acres in Utah where the federal government already controls 66.5 percent of the land.

"ATVs are destroying the deserts of Utah. I don't know if you know this, but motorbikes and ATVs are being brought out to the middle of the desert and they are destroying the desert," Glenn said sarcastically during his Tuesday radio program. "The earth will dissolve the highway system within a decade if we don't keep up with it, our cities will be gone in a century if we just let them decay, but the earth can't handle an ATV?"

"You're ignoring the looting of the antiquities. There's been six incidents of looting," Pat reminded Glenn.

"You're not saying these are confirmed though?" Stu questioned.

"Six confirmed instances in the entire West," Pat said definitively.

Naturally, government intervention is required to stop this travesty and save us from ourselves.

"The president is doing another land grab, and this goes back to Teddy Roosevelt and the progressive movement Antiquities Act, which Barack Obama is quoting in this land grab," Glenn said.

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) joined The Glenn Beck Program to discuss this outrage and how to stop it.

"We're talking here about the proposed Bears Ears national monument, two million acres in San Juan County. I went down to San Juan County last week, and I climbed up to the top of the east Bears Ears Butte, and, you know, as far as the eye can see, in basically any direction would be included in this monument. I mean, this is bigger than Yosemite National Park by 700,000 acres. This is bigger than the state of Rhode Island," Senator Lee said.

The senator went on to explain that President Obama wants to issue a single proclamation under the Antiquities Act to control this enormous expanse of land. The Antiquities Act and the creation of national parks and monuments came out of the socialist progressive idea that land should be owned and controlled by the government and leased out to the people.

LIARS: How Progressives Exploit Our Fear for Power and Control

"We think that's wrong. Local residents are against it, and so am I," Lee said. "This area is already overwhelmingly public land. The point here is that this is taking it up to another level. This is ratcheting it up more in terms of how the land is controlled, who controls it, and the deference and the discretion given to federal regulators in Washington, D.C. would be enormous."

Not surprisingly, the locals are not in favor of Obama's plan. For now, they can hike, fish, hunt, gather wood and live off the land --- but those activities would all be in jeopardy if the federal government says who goes where and when.

"I held a field hearing there last week. We had a capacity crowd. We filled up the entire high school auditorium. We had 700 people in an overflow room. We had 1200 people show up in San Juan County to express their views on this, and I invited people of all viewpoints. I invited Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell, either to come in person or to send a representative. I invited people from the Bureau of Land Management, from the Forest Service. Not one of them showed up. And not one person who was there spoke in support of the national monument," Lee said.

"Why is this president doing it now? What is his excuse?" Glenn asked.

"Well, his excuse is that this is beautiful. And because it's beautiful, we've got to protect it. And if we're going to protect it, we can't let the locals deal with it. We can't let the locals have access to it," Lee said. "And what could possibly go wrong with all this land being managed from Washington, D.C.?

Learn more and voice your opposition by visiting Senator Lee's website to sign a petition. One hundred thousand signatures are needed by August 14 to receive a response from the White House. You can also contact the Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell who previously promised Senator Lee that locals would be involved in any land decisions of this nature.

Senator Lee's new book Our Lost Constitution: The Willful Subversion of America's Founding Document is available at bookstores everywhere.

Did Biden just let slip that record-high gas prices were PLANNED?

President Joe Biden on Monday appeared to praise record-high gas prices, saying it's all part of an “incredible transition” that will make America and the world better off.

“When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden explained during a joint press conference with Japan Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo.

Twitter wasn't buying Biden's most recent bunch of malarkey:





Glenn Beck has long been warning that progressive policies and regulations intended to cripple the fossil fuel industry would lead to skyrocketing oil and gas prices — and it's all by design. Back in 2008, President Barack Obama all but admitted as much when he said energy costs would "necessarily skyrocket” under his cap-and-trade plan.

On a recent episode of BlazeTV's "Glenn Beck Program," Glenn explained why he believes the current oil and gas catastrophe is all "part of the plan," as leftists continue to push their radical ESG agenda.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.
