Glenn: I'm trying to be a better husband. I'm trying to be a better father. I don't want to joke about it.

Glenn and Tania just celebrated their anniversary recently and there was some on air controversy surrounding the ‘ring incident’ and the jokes that came in the aftermath. While it seemed like good fun at the time, he has a different perspective on it a few days later. Glenn talked about the new direction he’s heading in as a husband and father on radio today.

"I would like to have a personal moment here, Pat, and Stu. Because I ‑‑ well, you (Pat and Stu) too. You too in your behavior. Now it's rubbing off on me and I'm making easy jokes. I think I said this to you guys on Monday or Tuesday and we've kind of been talking about it all week kind of off the air, and you guys know that, I mean, I have the greatest wife in the world. We all do. And I love my wife. And when the ring was flushed down could have easily ‑‑ I mean, I did. I mean, it was like ‑‑ it's easy jokes. Easy jokes," Glenn said.

"But for the first time in my career, I think, since being married to Tania or even dating Tania, I have ‑‑ I've made easy jokes like, 'Yeah, I know. Well, she's ‑‑ she's calling me fat,' all this stuff. Well, that one actually she did, but -."

"I played down the incident and honestly it doesn't seem to bother her, which might be something else that we need to look into, but doesn't seem to bother her that these jokes are going on. I don't want to. Today I made an easy joke 15 minutes into the show, 15 minutes into it and I'm like that is ‑‑ that is just the easiest joke ever, and it's at the expense of my wife. Why would I do that? I do not want to do that."

" I've always hated guys, always hated when guys are like, "Yeah, the old ball and chain,".

Glenn said that when Tania goes out with girlfriends and when she comes home "We'll talk and she has always said, 'I'm amazed how I get around so many women and they just throw their husbands under the bus.  And they just, you know, they just do it.'  And I said, guys are the same way.  I don't want to be that way."

"I've been divorced before and I've been in a relationship that had marital problems, and I'm glad I'm not in that," he continued. "And I don't want to ever speak anything into existence.  I believe in the power of the word.  You speak things, say things, you speak them into existence.  I'm not going to do that.  I don't want to do that as a joke."

After Stu gave Glenn a hard time over the new rules, Pat clarified, "I think the heart of this is you don't want to joke that the relationship is on the rocks."

"Right. There are some things that shouldn't be joked about," Glenn said. "And my marriage to my wife is sacred."

Glenn explained, "Maybe it's I'm sensitive because I've turned a new leaf this year and I've ‑‑ I sense something different in me for the very first time in my life and I mean, Pat knows me better than anybody and, you know, I beat myself up on being a bad dad, and I'm not a bad dad.  I'm just not the dad I want to be.  And it's hard.  And I'm ‑‑ and I'm not a bad husband.  I'm just not the husband I want to be.  And I have felt so strongly in the last three months and especially in the last month or last two and a half months.  Since the election really, I really evaluated my life, and what are you doing spending your time?  What is it ‑‑ and I'm really, for the first time in my life, really not only wanting to change but sensing a change for the good.  And I don't want, I don't want to joke about things because I'm sorry.  I do believe in speaking things into existence.  And I just don't want to joke about things on that, which I'm trying to do.  I'm trying to change as much as I possibly can.  I'm trying to be a better husband.  I'm trying to be a better father.  I don't want to joke about it.  And I have no problem joking about how much, you know, you wouldn't want to be Tania, married to me.  I have no problem with that.  I have no problem with all that stuff.  It's just, I guess I'm sensitive on the sanctity of my relationship with my children and the relationship with my wife because I want it so badly.  I want it to be good," Glenn said.

 

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.

Here are a few headlines regarding the protests in Israel: 'Global protests grow after Israeli killing of Palestinian demonstrators,' the Guardian. 'Israel kills dozens at Gaza Border,' the New York Times. 'Palestinians mourn dead in Gaza as protests continue,' CNN. 'Over 50 Palestinians in massive protest are killed by Israeli military, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war,' ABC News. 'Gaza begins to bury its dead after deadliest day in years,' BBC.

In each, the spoken or unspoken subject of the sentence and villain of the story is Israel. Innocent Palestinians murdered by the cruel Israelis. This is the narrative that the mainstream media has promulgated. Few have mentioned that the majority of the “protestors" that died were members of Hamas, the militant (and highly anti-Semetic) Sunni-Islamist organization that has been labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.

A senior Hamas official told reporters that 50 of the 59 people killed in Monday's protests were members of Hamas, and the remainder were “from the people." So…they were all Hamas.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative. Maybe they think of Palestinians as underdogs and they love a good scrap. Well, they aren't underdogs. But their outburst have been glorified for so long that it's near impossible to disagree with that narrative.
