Taxpayer-Funded Abortions for Illegal Immigrants? Here Are Some of Oregon’s 750 New Laws

Oregon lawmakers passed hundreds of new bills this year, many of which will go into effect on Jan. 1.

While sitting in for Glenn on today’s show, Doc and Kal talked about some of the new state laws for 2018. They couldn’t figure out why Oregon needed 750 new laws; how do you even think of that many things to tell people not to do?

Here are some of the new laws set to be effective in Oregon on New Year’s Day:

  • The gas tax will rise 4 cents to 34 cents.
  • The age limit to buy tobacco will increase to 21.
  • Oregon judges will be able to issue “extreme risk protection orders” taking away firearms from people deemed an immediate threat to themselves or family members.
  • Speed limits will be lowered from 25 mph to 20 mph for residential streets in Portland.
  • Women who are in the country illegally will be able to get an abortion paid for by taxpayers.
  • Riding public transportation without paying a fare will be downgraded from a Class A to a Class C misdemeanor (although penalties increase for anyone who evades fare three times or more).

Has Oregon passed up California as the most liberal state in the union? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

DOC: All right. We're sharing some of the crazy new laws going into effect as of January 1st. And by crazy, that might be redundant. Crazy new laws. It's just new laws, because most of them are going to be crazy. If you've been around for hundreds of years and you still need this many laws, yeah, this is more about you than actually creating a society where we can all live and just go about our business and try to excel.

Also in Oregon, family members or law enforcement will be able, as of Monday to go to a judge and ask them to remove the firearm from somebody who is deemed a danger to themselves or others.

Who is able to deem them a danger? I don't know.

KAL: You said family members?

DOC: Yeah, family members or law enforcement can go to the judge. But I don't know if it's the family member, if it's their standard: He didn't eat his broccoli today. He's a danger. I don't know if it's -- or it has to have some sort -- do you have to go talk to a professional. And even that professional, what type of professional? Who decides?

KAL: And do they investigate? And what are the standards?

DOC: I guess it's like getting a subpoena from a judge. Can be like, yeah, sure.

KAL: Can't you do that already? If I go to the police and I say, hey, my uncle Bob is a bit of a kook, and he's -- we think he's a danger to himself. Plus, he's got guns. I'd like you to check it out. You can do that already.

DOC: They can't remove the gun. It's more of, they can put him in an asylum for a certain amount of time.

KAL: Or at least put him on the radar.

DOC: Right. Or put him on the radar. And there are standards of how long he can be in and this stuff. But this specifically targets the firearm. And the judge then can say, you can't possess a firearm for a year. Now, here's the thing, they say you can't. Of course, you can still just get one. Remember, Adam Lanza, who shot up the kids at Newton, Sandy Hook. Guess what, he didn't own the gun. He stole his moms. This happens quite often. So this will do no good for what they hope it will do.

Also in Oregon, they're expanding free reproductive health treatments for women, including abortions.

KAL: Ah.

DOC: Even for women who are in the country illegally.

Now, they don't do so much for men's reproductive health. Not a lot of free stuff for men. But a whole lot for the ladies.

KAL: And illegal.

DOC: And illegals, right.

KAL: Because they obviously should get everything.

DOC: If you're an illegal woman, wow, Oregon is a place to be.

KAL: Really?

DOC: Wouldn't that just be a beacon for you?

Some interesting new laws in Indiana. Starting Monday, using a drone to interfere with law enforcement, harass someone, or peep inside of a home is now a class A misdemeanor on Monday. It's punishable up to a year in jail and a 5,000-dollar fine.

This is one of the few areas where I make exceptions and say, we need some new laws and some adjustments or tweaks to old laws. Technology. Budgets change every year, so you need to get together for the budget as a legislature. But new technologies, well, we never foresaw drones. Now these things are becoming a problem. So how do we fit those into current law?

KAL: Yeah, so technology that's advancing and changing, it definitely needs something.

DOC: As of Monday in Indiana, anyone who uses force to rescue a pet from a locked vehicle, is immune from criminal penalties. For example, if you go up to the car and it's really hot and you see the dog suffering and you break the window, no criminal charges for breaking the car window of the car you don't own, provided you have called the cops and you remain at the scene while the cops are getting there. So you call the cops. Go, come quick.

Fido is in the back of the car, and it's really hot. And they go, we're on our way. And you stand there. You break the glass. You cannot be criminally charged. However, you are still liable for half cost of any damage of the vehicle.

KAL: I'm okay with that one.

DOC: Just half of it? Okay.

KAL: If you're someone who is -- I guess it comes down to what is suffering or not. If somebody leaves their pet in the vehicle that could die or be harmed.

DOC: What about these stories where somebody says, I thought it was suffering pet, and it was a stuffed animal. I thought it was a baby, and it was a doll.

KAL: Oh, yeah.

DOC: So now they're only responsible for half the window? And it's my car. Do I have to pay the other half, my insurance? Sorry. It should include, if you get it wrong, you pay the whole damn thing, plus my time and effort to go down there and get it fixed. I don't even want to have to make the call. And I don't want to be without a car, none of that stuff. But they didn't include that.

KAL: That's for next year.

DOC: That's it. Well, we need to leave something for next year.

KAL: 751.

DOC: Protection orders in Indiana on Monday can be issued by a judge. And they can now include an explicit prohibition against harming a family pet. These are protection owners for, like, domestic disputes. Taking custody of a pet away from the abuser with police assistance. And this is a new trend. New laws to protect pets.

In fact, one of the ones that they're continuing to push. And you're going to see this have a big spread in the next year or so. They're going to push this idea of domestic abuse against pets.

So, you know, you go home.

KAL: Isn't there any animal rights protection abuse?

DOC: There are animal laws in some areas and they vary. But what they'll do is put this under the umbrella of domestic.

See, domestic disputes are different. Cops can press charges, even if a spouse says they don't want to in many areas.

So if you punch me and the cop goes, all right, Doc, you punched her. I can say, I don't. It's Kal. He was just drunked up. I get it. No harm. No foul. I'm good. And they don't have to press charges.

If a spouse does that, the officers have the right to press charges. Because so often, people were afraid and they said, no, no, no. We're going to go ahead and push this thing through.

They want that to include pets too. Because they want people to conflate human lives with pets. You may love your pets, but they're different. So this is going to expand in the future where you see domestic disputes can include, well, he slapped the dog or whatever. And you're going to be locked up for that stuff.

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."
