Former USSR caller: “I’m scared, ok?”

Glenn talked with a woman on radio today who grew up in the Soviet Union and later came to America. She openly talked about why she is so afraid at an Obama second term - she’s quite familiar with the warning signs of a dangerous administration. Why is she scared now?

"Glenn, well, I grew up in the Soviet Union and I came to this country 18 years ago and I felt that I'd never again have to live in fear," she said. "And I've been worried for the past four years but after what happened last night, I'm just scared, okay?"

"This president, his entire administration, I know a Communist when I see one, and he's passed his policies, the direction we've been going in the past four years, it can't be any clearer to me what his beliefs and goals are. And I think being an American is not about where you were born. It's about what you believe, what's in your soul. And what's in his soul is dark. The ideology he believes, it's pure evil. It kills people. It destroys souls. It's synonymous with hopelessness, misery, apathy."

"I mean, that's the only equality you get in socialism: Everyone but the government and the criminals are equal and miserable and poor and apathetic. And maybe it's because I've lived through that that I can truly appreciate what America is and what it stands for. And I'm trying to find something positive about what happened last night, about this situation, some kind of hope, take it with good humor, but all I can feel is this dread."

"I had so much faith in the American people and our determination to do what's right especially after what we saw at Restoring Honor which, by the way, me and my husband went to and it was amazing. I was in shock at what happened. I'm still in shock."

"I was mistaken. So many Americans have become diluted and pampered and all they care about is, you know, free stuff and the latest episode of American Idol. It's insane. I don't understand what's happening here."

Glenn had to take a break, but when he came back he addressed her concerns.

"I want to tell Maria who called me from New York. She said she came here from the former Soviet Union. She grew up in the Soviet Union. She remembered what it was like. I remember what it was like. I didn't live there, but I remember the stories and I remember how afraid we were of communism. We had forgotten. We think socialism is fine. Kruschev said to the American people, 'You are so foolish, so arrogant. We will feed you socialism bit by bit until you fall into our hand like overriped fruit.; She said, I just, I worry. I have fear now. I haven't felt fear. And I don't understand my country."

"No, no, no. Remember, you don't understand half of your country. Half of your country feels exactly the same way. And Maria, if you're living in New York City, boy, do I understand. Boy, do I understand. I don't go to New York City very often. I only go when I have to now because it is openly hostile. And so many of us live in cities and in areas like that where they are openly hostile to. And we have taken it and we have lived in there and we have said, this is my home and I just get along and I won't say anything. I won't say anything at the PTA meeting. I won't say anything in my kids' school or in my business. Or, I'll take that sign down or, shhh, don't make any trouble. I'm tired of it, I'm tired of it, and I'm not going to live that way anymore. I have a right to say what I believe. I have a right to believe what I believe. I have a right to worship God as I believe. Just as they do. And I'm not trying to shut them down. That's fine. But I am no longer going to stand. And this has been one that came a while ago for me, but maybe today's the day that you'll start to feel this way. I'm no longer going to feel like a pariah. I'm no longer ‑‑ I'm no longer going to allow to be treated like a pariah. I am a man, as Martin Luther King said. I am a man, and I deserve to be treated as a man. I demand to be treated as a man. That's all there is to it. I will not comply. But I'm not suicidal, either."

"We almost last night elected a man who was of faith that was the only faith to actually receive an official extermination order. Look how far we've come. Nobody was even talking about that now. I am so proud of my country. And yes, Mrs. Obama, I've always been proud of my country, but last night made me even more proud. That people of all faiths got together and they put religion aside and said look at the character of the man. We can argue about religion, but let's unite on character. And they did. What an amazing American moment. Especially if you really know the history 150 years ago of a group of people that just wanted to worship God as they saw him. A lot of people disagreed. But there was a political side of this, too. Most people don't know that Joseph Smith actually ran for president. He was an abolitionist. I know, Mormons hate blacks so much. He was an abolitionist... in Missouri, you know, the site of the Compromise. He was against slavery. And so they weren't popular for a couple of reasons. They didn't look at God the same way that everybody else looks at God, but that's their right to do it. And they also didn't look at slavery like the people did in Missouri, and that wasn't okay. It got to be so bad after they murdered not only him but so many others, mainly the men, that the women took their children across the mountains in the snow. Many of them dug graves for their children on the open plains in the middle of winter. They dug those graves with their hands, in the frozen ground, and left the bodies of their children in the ground behind. And they moved to another country. But what they did was very smart. They gathered themselves. They were still persecuted, and it wasn't until last night that one of them could even be considered to run for president. I think some of that division is now behind us, thank God. They look to people to judge them by the content of their character, not their party affiliation, not the color of their skin but their character. Amen, brother."

"The reason why I tell you this story is because they gathered themselves together. And I'm not suggesting that we move to another country, I'm not suggesting ‑‑ well, I am suggesting that you move to Oklahoma. But I am suggesting that you surround yourself with like‑minded people. I am suggesting that if you're living in one of these states, especially in the Northeast - look what happened when there was trouble. Look what has happened. I never, I never thought the Northeast ‑‑ I never really thought that there were that many people that would stand on their roofs or on their broken‑down house and scream for FEMA and then, like a threat, say, 'If they don't come, well, then we're just going to organize ourself and do it ourselves then, all right?' That's not a threat. That's what you should be doing anyway. That's what we've always done. That's the spirit of America."

"Find your Galt's Gulch. Find it. Find it. Do not give up. I know what it takes to put a business together. I know how tired you are. Believe me I know how tired you are. I'm tired, too. You know, we'll catch a nap when we're dead. Right now let's really live."

"Like right now let's make sure our children have freedom. Let's not be afraid. And let's not cower. Let's gather together. Let's build. Let's create. Let's move forward. Let us live the Constitution."x

"We win in the end. I'm telling you we win in the end. Yesterday sucked. Today sucks. Tomorrow and maybe a few ‑‑ maybe even a few years are going to suck beyond belief. But someday we're going to be happy. Someday it will all work out. I don't know how much I actually can hang onto that idea. We need to be by each other's side and lift each other up. When one of us is down, the other will be strong. And we need to teach our kids what America always has been and make sure that we're creating a culture of goodness and decency and honor and integrity and invention and exploration, and all of the things that we actually still believe but is not being practiced anymore. It will not go on to our next generation through osmosis. They must experience it. They must witness it. They must be a part of it. Find your place. To instill it in your children beyond the history book. Let them live it and experience it."

​YOU made Target​ choose between profit and 'progress'

Scott Olson / Staff | Getty Images

Have you seen Target's newest pride month collection? Don't worry, you don't have to break your hard-won boycott streak to satisfy your morbid curiosity. Glenn took a look during a recent radio show. If you remember last year's display, you might be expecting horrors such as tuck-friendly bathing suits, chest binders for girls, and apparel made by a transgender Satan apologist. Fortunately, that's not what Glenn found. Instead, the collection was very tame, with one item being a charcuterie board with the phrase, "It's giving charcuterie" printed on it. So what happened? Did Target have a come-to-Jesus moment over the last year?

You. You are what happened.

The Target boycotts did exactly what they were supposed to do, they punched Target right in the wallet. According to the New York Post, Target lost a whopping TEN BILLION dollars in just ten days. You stood up for what you believed and Target had no choice but to listen. And this year's pride collection is proof that they heard you loud and clear.

"The inmates are now in charge of the asylum."

Now, this doesn't represent some change in the ethos of the company, but rather a desperate step back to protect their financial interests. The problem Target is now facing is that they don't have a whole lot of room to step back, as they have spent years cultivating a left-wing, progressive culture that really wants Target to take two steps forward instead. As Glenn said, "The inmates are now in charge of the asylum." These progressive activists within their company that they have pandered to for years don't take being told "no" very well. So when Target rolled back its pride collection, the internal backlash was immense.

Glenn's team was given access to leaked internal messaging within Target's Slack channel. The messages show the outcry of Target employees after Target announced they would be reducing the pride collection. Based on their reactions you would think they had just witnessed a national tragedy unfold. Some employees questioned if they could still work for Target after what had happened (remember, Target is still a VERY progressive company), and other employees discussed submitting ethics complaints. About a month after the internal firestorm, Target employees sent the following list of demands to leadership so that Target could atone:

  • An acknowledgment in writing, of the harm Target caused to the LGBTQ+ community.
  • A sincere apology.
  • To partner with prominent LGBTQ advocacy groups.
  • To immediately reinstate the Pride collection in full.
  • To donate to LGBTQ causes.
  • To implement sensitivity training for employees.
  • To cease all contributions to politicians and organizations that do not support the LGBTQ community.

Target has made a mistake.

By cultivating such a radical progressive community, they have placed themselves in a precarious position. On one side, there's the progressive monster they cultivated, with its ever-growing, ever-changing list of demands. On the other side, there are people like you—people who just want to shop without having to walk by transgender children's underwear. The more Target gives to the woke monster, the more they alienate their customers. Now Target is trapped—if they give in further to the woke mob, they'll lose billions of dollars, but if they don't, they'll be attacked from the inside.

So let Target serve as an example to other companies. Customers have a voice too, and when you stand up and use it, a great many things can happen.

Whatever happened to "do no harm?"

Last month, Glenn hosted a powerful Glenn TV special exposing malpractice and fudged consent standards among members in WPATH, the world's largest transgender health organization. Now that it's pride month, LGBTQ+ activists around the world are continuing their attempt to normalize life-altering transgender surgeries and hormone therapy as a legitimate option for minors experiencing gender confusion. However, as Glenn exposed in The Reckoning: Gender-Affirming Care, WPATH members are not only ideologically motivated to forego medical standards like "informed consent" to push transgender surgeries and hormone therapy on minors; they are financially incentivized to do so.

These "gender experts" are willing to bend the rules to do their dark work, and hospitals are turning a blind eye and rake in the cash. Here are 10 children's hospitals across the U.S. currently performing transgender procedures on minors:

1. Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago

We provide services including pubertal suppression, menstrual suppression, hormone therapy, and referrals for gender-affirming surgery.

Why is my name on this deep state-backed Ukraine 'disinformation watch list'?

Chris Williamson / Contributor, Janos Kummer / Stringer | Getty Images

Editor's note: This article was originally published on TheBlaze.com.

On Thursday, Texty.org, a so-called independent media outlet with an editor-in-chief who has ties to the U.S. State Department, placed dozens of American politicians, activists, and media outlets — including Blaze Media and myself — on a list of those who have allegedly shared Russian disinformation and anti-Ukrainian statements. The outlet published an article titled, "Roller Coaster: From Trumpists to Communists. The forces in the U.S. impeding aid to Ukraine and how they do it."

We have a color revolution happening within our own country.

There are 75 individuals on the list with the nearly 400 entities that have opposed sending aid to Ukraine in its war against Russia. Blaze Media and I were mentioned on page 34 of a 47-page list.

The group admits it couldn’t establish direct, proven ties between most of the entities on the list and the Russian government or known Russian propagandists. Instead, it gathered “evidence” that these people and outlets have spread Russian disinformation by echoing key messages of Russian propaganda in their arguments for ending further aid to Ukraine.

Who exactly are the people behind Texty.org? Its cofounder Anatoly Bondarenko was involved in the "tech camp," a public diplomacy program established by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the State Department. The tech camp is very much part of the State Department’s efforts to foment “color revolutions” in other countries. They find “tech-savvy people” and show them how to build movements against their governments. That's what our State Department is doing. What a coincidence that the editor-in-chief and cofounder was trained by the State Department and has ties to USAID.

I did a "Glenn TV" special a few weeks ago about regime change. It's been the United States' policy for a very long time. We use covert CIA operations to go into foreign counties and influence policy, manipulate the foreign media, meddle with and topple governments. We never admit that we do these things. When asked, we say, "We didn't do that. What are you talking about?"

It begins with those in the government who want to overthrow a regime.

This strategy started with the Cold War, but nothing the CIA has pulled off comes even close to what its successor began doing: the United States government, including the CIA, NGOs, trade unions, and people like George Soros. They coordinate together to bring about color revolutions. The first one that was really successful was in the Middle East: the Arab Spring. I told my audience years ago that the Arab Spring had its roots in 20th-century communist revolutions. After the “Communist Manifesto” was written, there was the European spring, which was the communists’ attempt to overthrow all of Europe.

We've carried out color revolutions in the Middle East, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. Ukraine is one of them. Here’s how they do it. The United States keeps its distance from the “dirty work” by going through NGOs and trade unions. They train and mobilize street movement — like the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots or the current pro-Palestinian protests. These movements are funded by the same people and seem to pop up every four years.

Their money and actions usually come at a time of massive civil unrest right before an election. There's some kind of government element at the top — whether it be the CIA, the State Department, or USAID — but ultimately the office of the president calls the shots.

It begins with those in the government who want to overthrow a regime, and then the operation is privatized to give it distance from those in the government who are in charge.

This is where NGOs like the National Endowment for Democracy come in. The National Endowment for Democracy is composed of four different entities: the National Democratic Institute, the International Republican Institute, the American Center for International Labor Solidarity, and the Center for International Private Enterprise. Do you see what's happening here? It appears that the National Endowment for Democracy is composed of organizations from both sides of the aisle so it looks fair: Republican and Democrat, labor and private enterprise. But this is a bipartisan “cover story.”

Next on the food chain are the multibillion-dollar financiers and their organizations that partner in the entire operation. This is where George Soros comes in along with his organizations, the Open Society Foundations, and the Tides Foundation, which spread the message coming from the top: “Demonstrate in the streets!” They influence the media to report what the government wants to communicate to the masses.

This is the color revolution blueprint. We've done it many times, and I make the case that these same people are doing it here in America.

So, why am I on this list? I believe I'm on this list because I’m telling you exactly what’s happening.

We have a color revolution happening within our own country. Our government, NGOs, George Soros, and all the same actors used to initiate color revolutions abroad are now initiating a color revolution within the U.S.

This is what they've practiced in foreign nations, tested in 2020, and are doing right now ahead of the November presidential election. They might succeed this time because they can't have Donald Trump as president again. If he wins, you will have the government, the media, and the masses in street movements all saying that the election was illegitimate. This is how we've brought about regime change in foreign nations, and now it is being attempted on our own soil.

Top FIVE public figures calling out woke mob

Patrick McDermott / Stringer, Matt Winkelmeyer / Staff, Cooper Neill / Contributor | Getty Images

As Glenn says, there is balance in all things. The further the pendulum swings one way, the stronger the counter-force grows.

For the past decade, the pendulum has been swinging left so fast that it has been hard to keep up with. What's considered progressive and woke one day is suddenly old-fashioned and intolerant the next. Fortunately, many people (such as yourself) have seen the writing on the wall and have taken a stand against the woke mob that drags us closer and closer to tyranny, despite personal risk.

Some of these people have taken a stand despite being in the public eye, at the height of their careers, and having everything to lose. For these people, it would have been easier (not to mention more profitable) to stay quiet, keep their heads down, and do what they're told. But they didn't. Instead, they risked it all to make a stand against wokism. This is where we see the tide turning, the pendulum slowing, and perhaps starting to swing the other way. This is where we begin to take America back.

These are the top five public figures who have recently made a stand against the woke mob:

Harrison Butker

In his now famous commencement address to the graduating class of 2024 at Benedictine College, Kansas City Chief Kicker, Harrison Butker stood up for his religious values (and assumingly, the values of the students at this Catholic College). Butker criticized the president and media for perpetuating "degenerate values" and promoted traditional family values. For this, he was vilified by the media.

Jerry Seinfeld

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has come under fire for defending his values several times over the last several months. During his commencement speech at Duke University that made the rounds on the internet a few weeks ago, Seinfeld was met with protests and walkouts by the pro-Palestine crowd due to his public support of Israel. Seinfeld has also received criticism for an interview with the New Yorker during which he blamed "the extreme left and P.C. crap" for the absence of quality comedy on television.

Joe Mazzulla

The NBA finals between the Dallas Mavericks and the Boston Celtics are the hot sporting event at the moment. The head coach of the Celtics, Joe Mazzulla, is an outspoken Catholic and speaks frequently about his faith. In a recent interview, Mazzulla was asked if he felt that it was significant that the head coaches for both teams were black, to which he responded "I wonder how many of those have been Christian coaches?"

Aaron Rodgers

NFL Quarterback Aaron Rodgers caught flack in 2021 for refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccine and going on air to defend his decision. He also criticized "woke culture" for being so easily offended. Rodgers has admitted that he lost money, friends, and media allies on a podcast with Joe Rogan since becoming outspoken about his beliefs. Rogers has continued to be vocal over issues concerning the vaccine and has championed other athletes who have spoken against vaccination.

Russell Brand

UK actor and comedian Russell Brand has faced recent criticism from the mainstream media for speaking his mind on several controversial issues. Brand started during the pandemic when he began posting videos on his YouTube channel that were critical of the way governments across the world were handling the crisis. Since then, Brand has defended his stance on COVID-19, called out woke corporations, and even converted to Christianity.
