Two competing philosophies

On TheBlaze TV Monday night, Glenn spent some time addressing two competing philosophies that are dominating the talk among the election. Those two philosophies are (using Glenn's favorite food metaphor): There is the idea that there is a finite amount of pie in the world, and the competing idea that we are all bakers and can make more pie.

What does this mean? Basically that there are some people who believe that there is only a limited amount of wealth (or pie) out there, and we are all struggling to get a piece. On the other hand, there are people who believe that you can go out and create more wealth and that your benefit doesn't come at the hands of someone else's failure.

Glenn used France as an example to illustrate this contrasting philosophy. In France, the Socialist President plans to increase the taxes on people who make over a million euro to seventy-five percent. If you're a small business owner that makes a million euro a year and have a plan to expand and make ten million euro a year, would you want to do it if the government got to keep 7.5 million euro of it? Probably not. The socialists philosophy kills the desire for individual innovation. Meanwhile, France's richest man is eyeing a move to Belgium. It's the same as when it happens in the US - New York and California raise the taxes so high people have almost no choice but to move to Texas and Florida.

Glenn then referenced an article he read over the week that laid out the differences between how "rich" people and "average" people think. While he didn't agree with every point, he did find some illuminating:

3. Average people have a lottery mentality. Rich people have an action mentality.

5. Average people long for the good old days. Rich people dream of the future.

8. Average people set low expectations so they're never disappointed. Rich people are up for the challenge.

17. Average people focus on saving. Rich people focus on earning.

18. Average people play it safe with money. Rich people know when to take risks.

"There is a difference between people," Glen said. "We're all created equal, yes, but we don't end equal." he said.

The great thing about America is that you can dream as big or small as you want, and it's up to you to build whatever you want. That essence of America is why people have always flocked to America - it's the land of opportunity.

But under the current administration, that mindset has changed to one where we now dream of only being middle class, and being a success isn't something that anyone can achieve. Instead, the new narrative is a select one percent get all the wealth and the rest are left fighting over the scraps. The solution? Divide the whole pie equally rather than encourage people to make more pie (see how it all ties back to food?).

Glenn returned the opening question of his monologue which prompted this discussion of two philosophies: Are you better off than you were four years ago? The answer is no. Not only is America still struggling, but the attitude of "tomorrow will be better" is diminishing.

Watch the opening of the monologue below:

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

 Should Universities allow pro-Israel protests?

Is pro-Hamas rhetoric protected by the First Amendment?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
