Benghazi, the IRS, and the definition of tryanny

Just a few short days ago, President Obama told a group of students that they shouldn't pay attention to those on the right who keep crying out about tyranny from the federal government. But if anything has become clear in recent days, it's that the American people have plenty to worry about from the federal government.

President Obama said :

Unfortunately you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate sinister entity that's at the root of all our problems.  Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works.  They'll warn that tyranny's always lurking just around the corner.  You should reject these voices.Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self‑rule is somehow just a sham.

"Today I want to star with a definition of 'tyranny' because America needs a lesson what tyranny is.  Tyranny is when there is an absolute ruler.  Tyranny is a system that forces its will on others, a system or an agency that has the power to force its will," Glenn said.

How is the federal government engaging in tyrannical activity? How about when people are left behind to die in a terrorist attack because it wasn't considered politically expedient to rescue them?

"What does a tyrannical government look like?  A tyrannical government would look, to use the president's own words, valiant public servants, heroic people engaged in this heroic experiment.  For instance, if you had people who had volunteered to go into the military, to go and protect people in a foreign land and then somebody in the chain of command would say abandon them, leave them there, when you had the assets available, abandon them, leave them there, let them die, when you could save their life and quite honestly, quite easily.  You didn't have to bomb anything.  You fly a couple of fighter jets low to the ground at the speed of sound and you scatter everyone.  And we do it all the time.  You don't have to fire a single bullet.  You could have scattered them, with just a couple of fighters.  And they were available."

"Tyranny, I would think, would be when you lose your life because someone has decided it is politically not expedient for them to save your life.  Not that we can't, but we won't because it doesn't fit into your version of what should be happening or what would be good or bad for you and your political career.  I would say that would be tyranny."

"I would say that it would be tyranny that you could have the State Department come out, you could have the White House come out, you could have the president on The View saying, 'I don't have any information.  I don't know.  We haven't received any information on this yet.  We're investigating'"  No, no, no.  No, no.  No, Mr. President.  Your own White House changed your own report [twelve] times?

"The State Department knew.  The White House lied, as did the president.  So did the State Department.  The media lied as well," Glenn said.

How about the way in which they have used the IRS as a weapon targeted at conservative groups?

"So you know, America, if you don't pay attention to what they did with the IRS and Benghazi, next year your healthcare goes to the IRS.  Next year this administration's universal healthcare employs the IRS so now you have to turn over all your medical records, all of your medical information to the IRS.  If you don't think that they won't use that to source and to sort people and to intimidate and to take away your guns, quite honestly, why?"

"What have they done that has proven them trustworthy?  And I don't say this just about the president of the United States.  I say this about the Republicans as well.  I don't know if you saw this, but in the amnesty bill that Marco Rubio is all for, in the amnesty bill that Jeff Flake is for, there was a hidden piece in there about biometric codes.  So now everyone will have biometric information given to the government.  So in other words, they map your face.  It's a universal ID card without being a card.  Everyone is digitally stored."

It certainly seems like President Obama may want to reconsider his words to students in the future.

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?

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.
