The Oval: This movement is only getting stronger

Good afternoon.

At some point, I wonder when the mainstream media will realize that there is a revolution going on in this country. These reporters and producers think the biggest revolt in the past year was a bunch of heavily pierced young adults camping out in urban parks. If six of them got together and held up a sign, it was BIG NEWS! Lots of coverage.

But in the rest of the country, we didn’t really care. Why? Because we were working on a different revolution. A different movement. Call it the Tea Party movement.Call it the revolt of the true conservatives. Call it the Great Awakening. Call it whatever you want. But starting in 2009, it has been ringing up victories, large and small.

We won statehouses in Virginia and New Jersey. We won a Senate race in Massachusetts. Ted Kennedy’s seat. We won control of the House of Representatives. We won several primary elections against the old guard. And this past week, we won another. A firm victory for Ted Cruz, the Tea Party candidate for U.S. Senate in Texas. He was opposed by the party machinery. But we beat them. Just like we beat them in Indiana. And over in Georgia, they tried to jam a sales tax increase down our throats. To pay for all those new roads that are going to make us so successful. Voters hated the idea. Voted it down, by a huge margin.

So let me get this right. The man who sits at this desk right now thinks new roads make us successful. But the state of Georgia voted not to tax themselves to pay for more new roads. Guess that means one of two things: Either the voters in the state of Georgia don’t want to be wealthy, or the guy who sits in this chair doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

Think about that! The media played these items – another Tea Party victory in Texas… a tax rebellion in Georgia… like they were unexpected. But to anyone who is noticing… anyone who is paying any attention… none of this should have been surprising.

These events are part of a pattern. Part of a trend. Part of a revolution. And we are winning.

Sure, I wish we had a president who believed in the Constitution… who protected it… who fought for it. We don’t. I’m not sure we will ever have one who passes that test 100% of the time. So we may never have a Tea Party president. You never know… But we are forcing change. We are making things happen. Slowly, the Tea Party is rolling back the worst habits of American politics… the worst ideas of the punditocracy.

We are insisting on the kinds of things that Washington hasn’t treated seriously in many, many decades. Limited government. Individual liberty. The rights of Individuals guaranteed by the Constitution. The limits to State Power guaranteed by the Constitution. Rights and limits. You hear a lot about rights, but not enough about limits.

And that’s what’s changing. We’re bringing back the limits.

No, you can’t raise taxes to pay for roads you should have already built with the tax funds you already collected. No, you can’t pass laws and decide which ones to enforce and which ones not to enforce. No, you can’t pretend that the government doesn’t need to have a balanced budget, year after deficit-producing year. No, you can’t print money forever without destroying the wealth of the nation.

But no revolution in human history has ever succeeded by taking things away. You don’t inspire people by telling them “no” all the time. We have to be about creating something new. We have to bring something to the table.

And here’s the thing. We are.

We are a movement that shows… with our own example…That we are creating a new vision for America. A new vision that places the individual at the center of our country. At the heart.

The individual has work to do. Not be a vassal of the state. Not a recipient of state aid, from cradle to grave. Not someone whose success in life is “made for them” by the powers that be. No. Someone who makes their own way.Someone who earns their own living. Someone who supports their own family. Someone who feeds the hungry. Heals the sick. Embraces the lonely and the broken-hearted.

Because that’s part of our revolution, too.

Those of you who joined me last week at Cowboys Stadium heard this message. And you know that it’s important to me. We have to serve. We have to take back the work of our hearts. We can’t outsource love to the government. We have to bring back to our communities the work that government is trying to do in Washington.

Look, I don’t doubt that the other side has good intentions. Maybe they think they CAN do the work better than we can. Just like they think they can make better investment decisions than investors. Better hiring decisions than small business owners. Better medical decisions than doctors. Better loan decisions than bankers.

I get it. They think they’re smart. So why shouldn’t they think they care more about our communities than we do?

So it’s up to us to show them they don’t. It’s up to us to show them they can’t. It’s up to us to show them they won’t.

We’re on our way. We keep sending them the message. We keep sending them Congressmen and Senators committed to restoring the State to its proper, limited role. We keep voting down their tax increases. And we’ll keep doing it.

But our revolution is not just a political one. It’s not just an economic one. It’s a cultural one. We have to change the culture. We have to restore it.

Because when you lose the culture, all the political wins are temporary. When you lose the culture, you can lose your own kids.

Trust me, I’ve seen it.

So it’s not just enough to Restore Washington. We have to Restore Honor. Restore Courage. Restore Love.

And then, when we do all those things, maybe the mainstream media will finally realize what is happening. Of course, they may never get the memo. That’s OK. I’m not watching them anyway.

Thanks for watching.

May God bless you and may God bless the Republic.

Fortunately, President Trump walked away from his attempted assassination with very minor injuries. The bullet that wounded Trump's ear could have just as easily ended his life, and his survival is nothing short of a miracle.

Sadly, that miracle didn't extend to everyone attending Trump's ill-fated Pennsylvania rally. Three other people were shot. David Dutch and James Copenhaver, both Pennslyavia residents, are thankfully in stable condition. Corey Comperatore, however, tragically died after being shot while protecting his wife and daughter from the hail of gunfire.

“Corey died a hero."

Camperatore, a 50-year-old loving father and husband from Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania leaves behind his daughter Allyson, his wife Helen, sister Dawn, and many other friends and family. Camperatore was a man of service, having spent 43 years as part of the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company and had worked his way to becoming the fire chief when he stepped down to spend more time with his daughter.

Corey's friends and family have nothing but good things to say about him, and judging by their testimonies, Corey's final heroic act was consistent with how the volunteer firefighter lived his life.

According to many people who knew Compertore, he was a true patriot who loved his country. He was a fan of President Trump. Compertore was very excited to attend Saturday's rally, which he expressed in his last social media post.

During his speech addressing the shooting, President Biden expressed his condolences to the Comperatore family, stating that "He was a father. He was protecting his family from the bullets that were being fired.”

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?
