Passing Laws Mo Brooks Style

It's rare to have clarity and common sense emanate from Washington but Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama may have just laid out a path back to sanity. Here is the bill he introduced to repeal Obamacare in its entirety:

"Effective as of December 31st, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed and the provisions amended and repealed by such act are restored and revived as if such act had not been enacted, period."

This straightforward and simple bill inspired Glenn and the guys to tinker around with a few one-page bills of their own Wednesday on radio.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Can you imagine how much we could get done? If we reduced -- if we took Mo Brooks -- Mo Brooks did a health care bill: Effective as of December 31st, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed and the provisions amended and repealed by such act are restored and revived as of such act had not been enacted, period. Amen.

There's how you start it.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: Wasn't it an actual prayer?

GLENN: Yeah, it is. Yeah.

I mean, I came up with -- you know, give us ten minutes, and we can come up with a few of them.

Supreme Court decision known as Roe vs. Wade, null and void, as are all statutes pertaining to killing human beings while in the womb.

PAT: Done.

GLENN: That way nobody is saying, I love these people who say, read the bill.

Yeah, you can read it. Everybody knows exactly what it is.

STU: There would be some Supreme Court conflicts with that particular one.

GLENN: Well, that one is probably not -- but we could try.

STU: You could do something like, effective March 29th, 2017, all employed citizens of the United States of America with an income greater than 40 grand --

GLENN: Yep.

STU: -- shall remit to the Treasury 10 percent of their annual earnings once per year that they're employed. No exceptions. No exemptions. Those earning less than 40,000 shall remit nothing.

GLENN: Can you imagine that? Can you imagine if that was our tax code?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Can you imagine what would happen to our country?

PAT: It would be -- it would be so simplified. You wouldn't have the tax fraud. You wouldn't have the cheating.

GLENN: No.

PAT: I think you would probably have more revenue.

GLENN: Oh, you would not only have more revenue --

PAT: Without the exemptions and deductions and all that stuff --

GLENN: -- but all of the companies that spend all of this money on lawyers and attorneys and tax -- every -- all of that stuff. All of that money would be freed up for investment.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It would be a huge boon to the economy.

PAT: Huge, huge.

STU: It would be a huge one.

Also, we did not tie this to inflation. So the government is going to have to figure out how to get smaller and smaller every year.

GLENN: I love that.

STU: I like that.

GLENN: Okay. Try this one on for size. Immediately upon the signing of this bill, all current immigration laws shall be strictly enforced, and severe penalties and fines shall be levied by any and all employers in violation of the law.

PAT: I think that's all we need to do. In addition to something, you know, maybe a border wall or a fence. Just a fence and this, just enforce the laws we have. And it's going to take care of the problem.

STU: Sanctuary cities being a good example.

GLENN: Yes. Well, that's all employers in violation of the law. The city can be an employer too.

PAT: Yes. How about this: Retroactive to fiscal year 2012, the speed limit in all 50 states is null and void.

GLENN: Wait.

PAT: And local authorities shall remit reimbursements of any and all fines levied since then.

GLENN: This one sounds a little personal.

(laughter)

PAT: I'm -- no. No.

GLENN: How much would you be getting back?

PAT: I'm just trying to help humanity, that's all I'm trying to do.

GLENN: How much would you be getting back?

PAT: About $80,000.

(laughter)

STU: How about, effective March 29th, 2017, the United States congressmen shall serve no more than six terms, twelve total years. And United States senators shall serve no more than two terms.

PAT: That's exactly what I think it should be. It should be twelve years for both Congress and Senate, and then you're done. Goodbye.

STU: And, by the way, you can't just put two terms in there, because then they would increase the length of the terms to stay longer. You have to put the years in there.

GLENN: Yeah, you have to put the years.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Okay. I like the idea -- again, I love these people who say read the bill.

So we enact this. Effective immediately, Congress shall draft no legislation larger than one page.

STU: You better put a font size in there. You better put a font size in there.

JEFFY: Boy, no kidding. No kidding.

STU: It will be like Willy Wonka with the magnifying glass by the end of it.

PAT: You'd need a microscope to read it.

JEFFY: All right. Here you go. Effective at the end of this week, Department of Education closed permanently.

GLENN: Do you have to say it like Jackie Gleason? Closed.

JEFFY: I want it closed.

GLENN: To the moon. Closed.

STU: To be fair. Because obviously you're compromising here, you're giving them to the end of the week.

PAT: I mean, that's plenty of notice for the employees.

GLENN: Right. Right.

PAT: Plenty of notice.

GLENN: Right. Right. That would be good. Federal Reserve, closed.

STU: Closed.

PAT: Would you give them to the end of the week?

GLENN: Yeah, no, I'll give them to the end of the week. Yeah. No, they're bankers. As of right now, closed.

PAT: How about effective upon the signature of the president, the Environmental Protection Agency is officially, permanently closed?

GLENN: I like that. I like that.

STU: Now, there's an issue here maybe with free speech, in the First Amendment. But effective immediately, any persons uttering the word consensus, the phrases the debate is over, settled science, or 97 percent of scientists agree as they relate to global warming or climate change, will be arrested and repeatedly poked with pickle forks.

GLENN: That might not be --

STU: I don't know constitutionally --

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: The word pickle fork does not appear in the Constitution. It's important to note that.

PAT: It doesn't --

GLENN: Right. And it may not -- it is a pickle fork, so it may not be inhumane.

PAT: It doesn't say we can't do it.

GLENN: It may not be inhumane. It may be -- I mean, that's kind of funny. Everyone might just go -- I mean, it's a pickle fork. That's kind of funny.

PAT: It's not going to hurt him that bad.

STU: It's just a slight little poke. It's just a little irritating. It's nothing violent, it's just a little irritating.

GLENN: Because it's little pickles. Not a big pickle fork.

PAT: I would propose one more. And I'll give them till April 1st on this one.

GLENN: Okay. All right.

PAT: Effective April 1st, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will admit the Anglo-American rock band Foreigner into its rightful place into the Hall of Fame, or federal troops will be deployed to Cleveland to blow that stinking building to smithereens!

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

JEFFY: And then it would be closed.

GLENN: Closed. Closed.

PAT: Closed.

STU: Why the Anglo-American --

PAT: Because I wanted to mention that they're both English and American. It just -- it had to be said.

STU: Okay.

JEFFY: It is their rightful place too.

PAT: It is. It is.

JEFFY: It is their rightful place.

PAT: It is.

The Left and their lapdog media are STILL busy looking for anyone and anything to blame for January 6. Their goal is to make "extremists" out of half of America, and Christians are next in line.

Faith is now on trial in the media, which dramatically reports lies like “a rise in a white Christian nationalist movement,” “The GOP: A party of Christian nationalists,” “It’s a radically anti-democratic ideology,” “Stamp the entire Republican Party as fans of this white Christian nationalism,” and “When they envision ‘one nation under God,’ it is a White Christian Nation.”

WRONG.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck brings the definitive proof that America’s heritage is NOT “white Christian nationalism.” It’s important to understand – and be able to explain why – acknowledging the historical reality of America’s Christian heritage is NOT the same thing as “white Christian nationalism.”

The attacks to smear any recognition of Christian influence in America’s founding as a dangerous threat to democracy do not hold up to honest scrutiny. Do not accept this dangerous smear campaign, and share this fact-filled rebuttal with your friends.

After getting WALLOPED in Wyoming, Liz Cheney thinks she could win the White House in 2024

Wyoming Republicans have sent Rep. Liz Cheney — and the Republican Party — a "massive message" by voting her out of Congress, but it now looks like Cheney is trying to turn this into an Abraham Lincoln moment.

After seeming to compare herself to former President Abraham Lincoln, who "was defeated in elections for the Senate and the House before he won the most important election of all" during a speech Tuesday night, Cheney appeared on NBC's "TODAY" show Wednesday and told host Savannah Guthrie that she's "thinking about" a White House run.

Is it possible she didn't get the message?

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere marveled at Cheney's tone-deaf response to Tuesday's devastating defeat, which, surprisingly, was not even the weirdest thing about this election.

"I think a humiliating and devastating loss puts you right where you need to be to launch a presidential campaign. Don't you think?" Glenn asked.

"Let me ask Beto O'Rourke. Hold on one second. I'll get him on the phone," Stu joked. "I mean, really, what is the constituency for a Liz Cheney presidency? She basically runs the state of Wyoming, and her family runs the state of Wyoming, and she got 29% of the vote there. So what is the constituency, other than the possibility of running as an independent candidate to shave votes from Donald Trump?"

"She's going to be brave and she's going to take that stage with Donald Trump ... She's going to be the one that takes him on and she will last all of about 45 seconds," Glenn said. "He will pummel her."

'Bye bye Liz Cheney': Donald Trump Jr. EASILY triggers liberals​​​​​​ with just one silly tweet

Donald Trump Jr. celebrated Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney's humiliating defeat in her state's GOP primary by releasing a 30-second video that was clearly intended to trigger the Trump-hating liberals on Twitter — and, naturally, it worked like a charm.

Rep. Cheney was defeated by Trump-backed challenger Harriet Hageman on Tuesday in the Republican primary for Wyoming's at-large congressional district.

Don Jr. took to Twitter to poke fun at Cheney's loss by posting a video montage of his father, former President Donald Trump, dancing with the caption, "Bye bye @Liz_Cheney. On the bright side at least you won’t have to pretend to be from Wyoming anymore."

Hoo boy, talk about kicking the hornets' nest. The reactions on Twitter were so predictably full of vulgarity, name-calling, and low-brow insults that we can't share most of them here, but you've seen it all before.

Don Jr. has had an interesting couple of days on Twitter. Just yesterday he was actually vindicated by fact-checkers (yes, you read that right) who called BS on a widely circulated but completely fabricated tweet that made it look like he was bashing his father's supporters.

Don Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to weigh in on the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid and explain why he believes the Justice Department targeted his father and pedaled lies to justify it. He also gave his advice on what conservatives can do to peacefully and lawfully stand up against a system that's ignoring their rights.

ATF agent caught taking photos of gun-buyer personal info — insists she's definitely NOT 'creating a registry'

Black Metal Firearms owner David Nagel originally recorded on video an ATF inspector taking pictures of his company’s documents to show what the gun industry is up against in the current political climate, but what he caught on camera has now gone viral.

Nagel joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to reveal exactly what happened the day he captured the shocking video, the threats made by that ATF inspector against his regular customers, and the insults she hurled toward all gun owners.

According to Nagel, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Industry Operations Inspector Pamela Scott began conducting a routine review, but things quickly went sideways when she started taking photos of the shop's detailed sales records — including the identities of every gun buyer.

Nagel said he confronted Scott and even asked if she was "creating a registry," by collecting the personal information of his customers.

"No, that would be illegal," she allegedly answered.

That's when Nagel decided it was time to capture Scott's actions on video.

"We had quite a bit of recording," he told Glenn. "But a lot of it, we were not able to share because there was personal information visible in it, you know, contact numbers and things of that sort. So, we didn't want to put [all of the video] on blast."

The little bit he did "blast" out on Instagram garnered tens of thousands of views and received a wide range of both outrage and support.

Nagel went on to explain how Scott responded when he told her his customers would not be comfortable with her collecting their information.

"She said, 'well, it sounds like your customers are just being paranoid. Maybe I should look into them a little bit more.' Which I thought was really creepy," Nagel said.

"That's a threat," Glenn stated.

"And she said, 'you have a few gun nuts in there.' And I politely corrected her. I prefer gun enthusiasts. And she said, 'no, they're nuts,'" Nagel told Glenn. "That was a kind of backhanded way of describing the average American. Because, if we're all nuts, then what are you governing us for?"
