POWER GRAB: Here’s how US presidents use ‘moments of crisis’ to override Constitutional law

According to the Constitution of the United States, Congress has more legislative power than the president (learn more about this here.) But just try telling that to a modern-day president. Case in point: President Barack Obama's imperious warning to Republican members of Congress regarding attempts to defund Obama-care:

“We've got to have something … to sell our caucus, and I said to them, I said let me tell you something, I spent a year and a half getting healthcare passed. I had to take that issue across the country and I paid significant political costs to get it done," said President Obama. “The notion that I'm going to let you guys undo that in a six-month spending bill?' I said, you wanna repeal health care? Go at it. We'll have that debate. But, you're not going to be able to do that by nickel-and-diming me in the budget. You think we're stupid?"

“Unbelievable arrogance," said Glenn Beck of the former president's closed-door candor with donors. “But he's not the only one. They're all like that. This is the attitude now, that the president is somehow or another equal to or even more powerful than Congress when it comes to legislation. But that thinking is totally upside down compared to the Constitution."

So how did we get here?

Our founders designed a remarkable government, carefully spelled out in the Constitution. But it didn't take long before vying political party's worked out a way to use crisis as the catalyst for change. In fact, the second president of the United States, John Adams, was the first to use a moment of crisis to step outside of the Constitutional boundary.

Prompted by an undeclared naval war between the U.S. and France in 1798, Adams signed the Alien and Sedition Acts, which gave the government powers to deport “enemy aliens" and to arrest anyone who disagreed with the government. Fortunately, they didn't last.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
