On GBTV Monday night, Glenn explained how we are getting closer and closer to being on the same path as Egypt was just a little over a year ago. How does it tie into May Day? Watch the clips below to find out:
It’s the day Glenn has been warning about for the past six months – spring is here and “Occupy” is getting ready to make its big comeback in New York City. In 2011, there were arrests, protests, violence, feces, destruction, and more. California saw huge riots in the streets of Oakland. All the leftist propaganda promises their next phase to be bigger than ever – what can you expect when the radicals return?
“Tomorrow is May Day. This is going to be an interesting week in our country. This could be a lot like the beginning of Occupy Wall Street was when it first kicked off, if you remember. It kicked off and everybody was like, “That’s ridiculous” and, of course, Jon Stewart was like, ‘You know, it’s just a bunch of, you know, people and if they get violent, then we’ll be interested in it.’ And I warned you, don’t dismiss them. This week may or may not be a source of real riot and real trouble in the country,” Glenn warned.
“This thing is so huge. They’re now saying in Chicago in a couple of weeks, the Red Cross in, where is it, Milwaukee is saying they are setting up now shelters because they may have to evacuate portions of Chicago because they are expecting riots for the summit. This is serious. And nobody has been paying attention and this is the week,” Glenn added.
“They’ve been setting plans in place and they’re building a machine and you don’t want to see them turn it on, and they are about to turn it on. And I believe they start to turn it on tomorrow.”
Glenn said that OWS is using a website called Sukey to coordinate their protests and to avoid police.
“Sukey is a Web app that is designed to keep people safe, mobile and informed during demonstrations. We crowd source updates from Twitter and other online and off‑line sources in order to provide our users with timely overview of what’s going on at a demonstration,” Glenn read.
This video provides more information:
Occupy Wall Street demonstrators, whose anti-greed message spread worldwide during an eight-week encampment in Lower Manhattan last year, plan marches across the globe today calling attention to what they say are abuses of power and wealth.
Organizers say they hope the coordinated events will mark a spring resurgence of the movement after a quiet winter. Calls for a general strike with no work, no school, no banking and no shopping have sprung up on websites in Toronto, Barcelona, London, Kuala Lumpur and Sydney, among hundreds of cities in North America, Europe and Asia.
In New York, Occupy Wall Street will join scores of labor organizations observing May 1, traditionally recognized as International Workers’ Day. They plan marches from Union Square to Lower Manhattan and a “pop-up occupation” of Bryant Park on Sixth Avenue, across the street from Bank of America’s Corp.’s 55-story tower.
Rachel Maddow was on Meet The Press over the weekend claiming that Mitt Romney wants to talk about “women and the economy,” to which Glenn pointed out, no, Maddow wants to talk about women and Romney wants to talk about the economy.
Maddow made the claim on Meet The Press that women only make seventy-seven cents on the dollar compared to men. After making the claim another commentator pointed out that there are many reasons for that which actually make that claim untrue when you break down the numbers. Of course, Rachel didn’t want to have anything to do with the pesky facts of this matter.
“No, wait. Don’t tell me the reasons. Do women make less?” Rachel responded when confronted with the facts.
Stu pointed out how ridiculous it is for anyone whose job it is to analyze the news to say ‘don’t tell me the reasons.’ Why confuse her with the facts when that will ruin her talking points?
“See, that’s the problem. If you don’t want to get into the reasons for it, well, then you can make it unreasonable,” Glenn said when comparing Maddow’s comments on salaries to the prices of cars. “Yeah, those damn Rolls Royce people, they’re gouging the Kia people. Wait a minute. There’s a difference here. There’s a reason. One’s handmade.”
“The reasons are fascinating when you get into it, because this whole thing falls apart. This war on women and the unequal income, it all falls apart,” Glenn later added.
The other panelist on Meet The Press with Maddow pointed out that, on average, men work about forty-four hours per week – women about forty-one hours. He later added that professions men are drawn towards, like engineering, science and math, tend to earn more.
“Right off the bat you’re talking about almost 10% more an hour, which would already immediately eliminate half the difference between men and women,” Stu said.
Maddow’s response – “This is not a math is hard conversation.”
Unfortunately for her, it is, and our resident statistics point man, Stu, has that math.
Here’s what Stu had to say:
In fact, there’s a great book written called Why Men Earn More and it’s written by a guy who started off as a women’s rights activist who was all about this, all about this argument like, “Oh, you know, they’re only getting paid,” at that time it was like 69 or 59 cents on the dollar and this is an outrage, went through and really dived through the numbers and found out this is true. Men and I think this is a compliment to women, by the way. Men prioritize their careers a lot higher. Women, when they get jobs and they’re in the working community, decide to prioritize stuff like family time more and they start to prioritize not staying for all the overtime and they prioritize keeping themselves safe and not going to, you know, on dangerous jobs for six months at a time. All those jobs go to men. And so those jobs that do get a premium because they’re dangerous or they have ridiculous work hours go to men a lot more often because they’re the ones requesting them. I mean, and you look through the numbers, there’s a new study out that went over 2,000 communities and went through, analyzed all the numbers on women who had just come out of college, who hadn’t you know, come out of college, have the same degrees as men, went through the same industries as men and found out that with the same age, everything controlled the same, women earn 8% more than men. Apples to apples.
This particular study was about women in their 20s right out of college. So I mean, I think it’s the most pure example of whether there would be bias because there’s no long work history, there’s nothing you there’s nothing that can screw up the data. These are people that are leaving college and going into the workforce.
Yeah, and like even hateful cities in the South like Atlanta and Memphis, they’re paying women 20% more than men, 20% in Atlanta and Memphis for the same work with the same experience and everything else. Those hateful, evil Southern cities.”
Glenn’s take on the situation was a little less in depth, “She’s so much smarter than almost everybody else on the planet, and she’s, of course, the one who will kindly nudge you into that conclusion. I don’t believe she actually this ignorant. I don’t believe she’s this stupid. I don’t believe that she can’t do the math herself, that she can’t look at stats and figure them out. She’s disingenuous at best, lying most likely.”
Is giving terrorists “Ensure” the equivalent of Orwellian torture? That’s what 60 Minutes host Lesley Stahl said during a discussion with a CIA Official. For anyone wondering, “Ensure” is a “dairy-based beverage that’s loaded with calories and nutrients, primarily for cancer patients who can’t eat.” Man, that sounds almost as bad as being exposed to anthrax, a suicide bomb, having your head cut off, or any of the other numerous horrible, disgusting actions undertaken by terrorists! When will Stahl start going after Mayor Bloomberg or the First Lady for their Orwellian torture? Or is it only torture when terrorists have their diet regulated…not American citizens?
The clip from “60 Minutes” is below:
Dan Savage earns a living giving people sex advice, which usually amounts to nothing more than just encouraging students and others to engage in sexual activity. Not surprisingly, he’s no fan of the Bible. In a recent speech to students, the founder of the ‘It Gets Better’ anti-bullying campaign decided not to talk about bullying but instead rip Christians and the Bible.
Watch the shocking video below:
“Nothing wrong with anti‑bullying stuff,” Glenn said.
“It’s very good stuff. We should all get along, we should all work together, we can disagree with each other but we don’t have to hate each other, we don’t have to do any of that stuff. And I think we’ve made great progress as human beings on being decent to each other. But we are being dragged back to absolute hatred every step of the way.”
Glenn, however, was not a fan of the Dan Savage bashed the Bible and encouraged people in attendance to ridicule those who chose to turn the other cheek and exit the lecture rather than hear someone beat up on their most sacred text.
“He just beats on the Bible and beats on the Bible and these kids get up and walk out and they ‑‑ they’re cheered as they’re walking out like good, good riddance. And then he starts to bash them while they’re out in the hallway. This is an anti‑bullying campaign.”
“So at an anti‑bullying conference, he calls the kids who get up and leave pansy ass,” Pat said.
The Blaze has done an in-depth report on Savage and his ties to the White House which you can read HERE.
So there might be a little bit of hypocrisy coming from the media. In a new op-ed, Stephen King claims that the rich could be headed the way of Marie Antoinette, who “lost her head”, if they don’t change their tune and pay “their fair share” of taxes. Isn’t that just threatening people with a guillotine? It’s weird because not long ago Glenn was criticized for saying that “Occupy” would call for and bring about violence in the street – but I guess the media has no problem ignoring the violent rhetoric when it’s coming from someone like Stephen King. Surely they will pay attention when it’s not a celebrated author calling for violence, but rather anonymous masses carrying out their brand of vigilante justice in the streets.
Writing for The Daily Beast, King said, “This has to happen if America is to remain strong and true to its ideals. It’s a practical necessity and a moral imperative. Last year during the Occupy movement, the conservatives who oppose tax equality saw the first real ripples of discontent. Their response was either Marie Antoinette (“Let them eat cake”) or Ebenezer Scrooge (“Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?”). Short-sighted, gentlemen. Very short-sighted. If this situation isn’t fairly addressed, last year’s protests will just be the beginning. Scrooge changed his tune after the ghosts visited him. Marie Antoinette, on the other hand, lost her head.”
Now, King is surely just being metaphorical in his statements above – but would anyone give a conservative the benefit of the doubt if they made comparable statements? Probably not.
The red carpet night of the political elite was this past weekend, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. While the mainstream media is reporting that the President ‘killed it’ and Jimmy Kimmel, the evening’s host, ‘fell flat,’ that’s not exactly how Glenn, Pat and Stu reviewed the event.
“The open of this thing, or at least the open to Obama’s section, embarrassing,” Pat said.
The opening of the event centered around the President having a hot mic – a joke on at least two instances that have put President Obama in some sticky situations with the American people over the last year or so. Once, when the President made some questionable remarks to the Russian PM, and another when he was overheard mocking Rep. Paul Ryan. To make matters worse, the joke didn’t end with a pun of the ‘hot mic,’ but also included bathroom humor. Like Pat said, embarrassing.
Bathroom humor and jokes about the President telling the Russians things he doesn’t want American’s to hear …hilarious? Apparently so, if you’re a member of the mainstream media. Jimmy Kimmel, who reportedly fell flat at the Correspondents’ Dinner, was actually pretty funny, just a little too honest for those in the media.
“Mr. President, you remember, you remember when the country rallied around you in hopes of a better tomorrow? That was hilarious. That was your best one yet,” Kimmel said to open his act. “But honestly, it’s a thrill for me to be here with the President; a man who I think has done his best to guide us through some very difficult times and paid a heavy price for it. You know there’s a term for guys like President Obama, probably not two terms, but… there is.”
Kimmel didn’t shy away from other sensitive subjects for the Obama Administration. Everything from the size of President Obama’s ears and the Secret Service to Jay Carney “personally knowing three Hilary Rosens” was on the table.
Glenn described Kimmel’s joke on Carney and the Hilary Rosen situation as “an epic takedown.”
Here is the joke:
“One of Jay’s jobs is to keep track of all the Hilary Rosens. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this story, Kim, Lindsey, etc. Hilary Rosen is the woman who said Ann Romney never worked a day in her life, even though Mrs. Romney raised five kids, and, of course, the administration tried to distance itself from those comments. They said she is not an adviser to the Obama campaign even though as we later found out, her name appeared on the White House visitor log 35 times. So when reporters asked Jay why her name showed up 35 times, this is where it gets hilarious. He said he wasn’t sure it was the same Hilary Rosen. He said, I personally know three Hilary Rosens. You personally know three Hilary Rosens? Where did all these Hilary Rosens come did you pick them in the Hilary Rosen garden? I bet you $10,000 you don’t know three Hilary Rosens but I’m not running for president. So… three Hilarys, that sounds like President Clinton’s worst nightmare.”
“At least some truth got out there through this comedy,” Pat said.
“Kimmel is one of the first comedians who’s actually crossing that line and being unafraid,” Stu added.
Glenn pointed out that, of course, after he did it, the media rips the act apart and says he wasn’t funny. “This is four years, three and a quarter years into this man’s term and this is the first time I’ve seen a comedian, a big comedian actually take this guy on,” he said. “That’s saying something. And as soon as he does, all the press is saying that he failed, it wasn’t that funny. He was on fire.”
Glenn, who attended the Correspondents’ Dinner in 2009 when Wanda Sikes was the host, described the event as a “slime fest.”
“My wife and I got into the car, when left there, we made a vow we’d never, ever go again,” Glenn said.
Of course, Glenn couldn’t help but point out that his least favorite President, Woodrow Wilson, started the tradition of the Correspondents Dinner. “The idea was they’re enemies of the White House and of congress. If we can just bring them in, feed them, have a lot of laughs, hang out with them, we can make them our friends.”
Stu also noted one more interesting detail about the “slimy” event attended by the political elite – the attendees. “The only place you’re going to be able to see a whiter crowd than President Obama’s staff is at the White House Correspondents Dinner,” Stu said.
“It’s nothing but evil white privileged people, who all they do all day is condescend to you about how you’re not diverse enough,” Stu said of the attendees.
Check out the picture Stu posted of the crowd last year here.

Glenn talked on radio today about GBTV’s stunning documentary Rumors of War III: Target U.S. and how it showed the administration’s shocking ties to the radical Muslim Brotherhood. They are trying to recreate the Arab Spring here in the U.S. & with our (and Europe’s) economy on edge it won’t take much to push us over the cliff. In the clip above from radio, Glenn explains what you can find in the documentary and the dangerous ties between radicals in the White House and radicals in the Muslim Brotherhood. The evidence will shock you!
