‘Hail Satan!’ Pro-abortion activists celebrate evil at TX rally

This morning, Glenn opened the radio show with a rundown of the news-of-the-day that leaves you wondering what has happened to this country. From the Director of National Intelligence blatantly lying to Congress to pro-abortion protestors in Austin chanting “Hail Satan,” these stories are sure to make you shake your head in disgust.

  • TX Abortion supporters chant ‘Hail Satan’

In a truly despicable story, the abortion battle in Texas was still raging Tuesday as both abortion supporters and pro-life activists flooded the State Capitol in Austin to make their voices heard.

As TheBlaze reported, one of the more bizarre tactics used by pro-abortion activists involved chanting “Hail Satan!” to harass a pro-life crowd as they sang “Amazing Grace.”

“If you don't know what side you're on right now, if you don't know who you're actually fighting. I've told you before we are not fighting with the president of the United States. We are not fighting with the Democrats,” Glenn said. “We are fighting evil, and if you don't believe me, yesterday in Austin the governor decided that he was going to call for a special session. So now all the protestors are there in front of Austin… standing there in front of the capitol building in Austin and people are singing Amazing Grace. The pro death people are chanting things like ‘Mary should have had an abortion,’ meaning Jesus should never have been born and “Hail Satan.”

“It's really despicable stuff,” Pat added.

“When you can have a group of people chanting around a state capitol Hail Satan’ and nobody seems to care about that, I don't recognize my country anymore,” Glenn said. “I am a man determined to be free.”

  • Clapper to Face Perjury Charges?

Glenn recapped Director of Nation Intelligence James Clappers’ apology to Congress for his “clearly erroneous” testimony in which he said, under oath, that the NSA does not collect data on millions of Americans. Only in Washington D.C. can lying under oath be brushed off as making a mistake.

During a Senate hearing in March, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) asked Clapper a very pointed question:

WYDEN: Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?

CLAPPER: No, sir.

“That's a lie,” Glenn said. “And then he came out and he said, ‘My response was clearly erroneous.’ No. It's a lie. In fact, if I may say, you perjured yourself, you weasel.”

Clapper clearly lied under oath, and considering he was aware of the questions ahead of time, there is really no excuse for his “erroneous” statement. But it’s highly unlikely he will face perjury charges.

“By the way, on the mistake front, too, it's one thing because you could say, ‘Well, it was a mistake.’ In the heat of the moment you get a question that's very difficult to answer and you think to yourself, ‘Well, I can't answer this. I'm not sure what to say,’ and you handle it improperly,” Stu said. “But when you know the question is coming in advance and you still say that answer, that's definitely, definitely not a mistake and it’s an outright lie. And honestly, when you know in advance, it's completely perjury. It's perjury.”

  • HHS to delay Obamacare “employer mandate”

Next, Glenn moved on to the shocking report from the Treasury Department that the implementation of the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act would be delayed until 2015… conveniently after the 2014 midterm elections.

“Now, they're delaying this until after the next election. Now, they've already delayed the first time it went through. We had to wait until we passed it to see what was in it. Then we saw what was in it, but nobody really pays any attention because they delayed that implementation until the last presidential election was over,” Glenn explained. “Now they're delaying it until the next congressional election is over. They're going to keep delaying this until this party is out of power. And then it will all kick in. And the American people will say, ‘What the hell happened?’ And you know what? It's too late to fix it.”

  • CA Student told to remove Christian cross necklace

A 19-year-old California college student, Audrey Jarvis, was told to either hide or remove her Christian cross necklace after arriving to work for an on-campus job at Sonoma State University.

TheBlaze reports:

Audrey Jarvis, a 19-year-old liberal arts major, was in for a surprise last month when she arrived to her campus job wearing a cross necklace around her neck. Why, you ask? This personal decision to wear a Christian pendant was met with a troubling reaction from her boss at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California.

While she was working at the Associated Students Productions, a student orientation event, her supervisor told her to remove the necklace and said that it might offend incoming freshman. And if once weren’t enough, she was reportedly asked a second time to conceal the cross, with her boss giving an ultimatum to either hide it under her shirt or take it off entirely, Fox News reports.

“She was wearing a cross around her neck,” Glenn explained. “Her boss gave her an ultimatum: You either then hide it under your shirt or take it off entirely. The necklace was not allowed under the chancellor's rules, and wearing it would potentially offend attendees and make them feel unwelcome.”

“If you don't know what's happening in our country,” Glenn continued, “I've got news for ya: If your preacher isn't talking about what's happening in this country every Sunday… get the hell out of that church.”

  • Michelle Obama refers to White House as a “really nice prison”

Finally, Glenn couldn’t pass up the latest story out of the Obama’s African adventure. This time, it was First Lady Michelle Obama putting her foot in her mouth when she referred to living in the White House as a “really nice prison.”

We already know the First Lady is rarely proud of her country, but now it seems like she isn’t proud or grateful for the position of prominence her family currently assumes.

“When this president's wife who shall not be named without a $20 fine, when this president's wife says she feels like the White House is a prison… my wife stood next to me and she said, ‘Why is that? Because she can't go exactly where she wants without security? Is that it?’ And my wife said that after my security detail had just told my children and I had just talked to my children about, ‘Okay, guys. Security. You can't be running around. You've got to listen to security.’ They are just like, ‘Dad.’ ‘If they say something, you do it,’” Glenn explained.

“You live in the White House,” he continued. “They stop all planes for your plane. You haven't stopped at a traffic light in five years. Don't tell me about this prison you're in. Cry me another river, Lady Macbeth.”

“I say we set them both free,” Pat quipped. “Let them out of that prison… Free the Obamas! And that was worth 20 bucks!”

Would Glenn make a better bounty hunter or a Jedi? You'll have to find out in a new episode of the Beltway Banthas Podcast, where Glenn goes deep on Star Wars with host Stephen Kent. In this 45 minute discussion, Stephen and Glenn explore the political themes of the Star Wars franchise, Darth Vader's redemption from Return of the Jedi, Glenn's earliest memories of seeing the films and even debate elements of the latest Star Wars films.

If you enjoy the pop culture and nerdy discussions that Glenn, Pat and Stu get into on the radio show, you'll love this! After you're through, you can also check out Stu Burguiere's appearance on Beltway Banthas to talk Star Wars. You can find that here.


It's never too early to start your Christmas, Hanukah, or Kwanzaa shopping. Or even birthday gift shopping. Especially if that special someone in your life is a Democrat. Because at last count, pretty much all the Democrats are now running for president. And that means there has never been a wider selection of official candidate merchandise to choose from. Whether you're into environmentalism, feminism, classism, socialism, or just plain love, there is a smorgasbord of classy items that you and yours will treasure forever... or at least until the next presidential election.

We have browsed each of the candidates' online stores, so you don't have to (it only took us three months). We have curated only the finest items from each of the Democrats running for president of the United States of America. Without further ado, here is your handy progressive gift guide – or maybe your what-not-to-gift guide.

First, the bargain basement options. Hurry! Time is running out to grab your Beto bandana, or your Delaney pack of golf balls, because at this point Stu has as much of a chance as these guys of getting the nomination.

Tom Steyer, for example – is he still in the race?


https://shop.tomsteyer.com/collections/frontpage/products/tom-2020-pattern-tee


There's way too much Tom here. That shirt's got more Toms than a Caucasian dentists' convention.

For the slightly more moderate Democrat in your life, perhaps they'd like to join the "Yang Gang"…

https://shop.yang2020.com/collections/bumper-stickers/products/yanggang-decal


Andrew Yang is a lock for Math Club president…


https://shop.yang2020.com/collections/apparel/products/math-hat


But for actual president? Well, I wouldn't make plans for how you're going to spend your $1,000-per-month Yang allowance just yet.

If you happen to be shopping for your dog, may I suggest this lovely "Dogs for Delaney" dog collar…


https://store.johndelaney.com/products/dogs-for-delaney-collar


John Delaney's definitely going to secure the canine vote with this kind of outreach. As for any human votes, that's another question entirely.

How 'bout this tastefully understated "Natural Canvas" Michael Bennet tote to remind you he's also still here?...


https://store.michaelbennet.com/michael-bennet-for-america-natural-canvas-tote/


Then again, it's a tote. So, it'll end up on the floor of your closet and you won't have it with you until that one random moment when you're out somewhere and you really need a tote bag. Just like Democrats will really wish they had a moderate when we're in the middle of the socialist nightmare of their creation.

Captain Planet himself, Jay Inslee recently dropped out of the race, but don't let that stop you from picking up what may be the greatest single item sold by anyone in this race…


https://store.jayinslee.com/elvis-the-elves-the-mystery-of-the-melting-snow-by-jay-inslee/


A children's book called Elvis & the Elves: the Mystery of the Melting Snow. Written and illustrated by Governor Jay Inslee. Talk about a whodunnit – how could that snow possibly be melting? Spoiler alert: it's because of evil, white, patriarchal capitalism. And Donald Trump.

Then there's the candidate who thinks you're a moron that can't pronounce his last name: Steve Bullock...


https://shop.stevebullock.com/collections/apparel/products/emoji-t-shirt


Get it? Bull. Lock. Oh, so that's how you say the name that sounds exactly how it's spelled.

There's another candidate who also thinks you need help pronouncing his last name…


https://store.peteforamerica.com/collections/apparel/products/boot-edge-edge-t-shirt


And he is definitely right about that. So, thank you, Pete "Boot Edge Edge." That helps.

Just outside the bargain bin section, but just barely, are candidates like Julian Castro and his "El Presidente" t-shirt…


https://store.julianforthefuture.com/julian-castro-loteria-card-white-tee/


When your last name's Castro, do you really want to go with a weird drawing of yourself as if you're a classic Latin American dictator on a postage stamp?

If you prefer a little "dark psychic forces" battling in your candidates, you'll love Marianne Williamson's "Turn Love Into a Political Force" rally sign…


https://store.marianne2020.com/collections/signs/products/love-rally-sign


"Turn Love Into a Political Force" would be an even better title for a Marianne Williamson album of 80s cover songs. And if you think I'm joking, then you haven't heard Bernie Sanders' classic 1987 folk album, We Shall Overcome. That's not a joke. Well, it is a joke, but it's also a very real thing.

Now, just a quick pause to consider the peculiar baby-wear that way too many candidates are selling…

…including Elizabeth Warren's trans-pride flag onesie. Let me get this straight – we can't force any gender on a child, because that's just cruel. But we can force a political advertisement on a baby? How do we know that baby is actually a Biden or Warren fan? The child may not even be a Democrat or a Socialist at all. That baby might self-identify as a Libertarian, or Republican, or even worse – a moderate Democrat.

Now to the premium items from the premium candidates. Elizabeth Warren – the candidate with the most honesty in her advertising…


https://shop.elizabethwarren.com/collections/apparel/products/impolite-arrogant-women-make-history-unisex-t-shirt

-AND-

https://shop.elizabethwarren.com/collections/drinkware/products/strong-american-unions-mug


Warren's merchandise reflects the woman herself – cold and humorless (watch her "This isn't funny" clip from the last debate here at the 4:27 mark). I'm sure she's really fun once you get to know her. Then again, maybe not.

Speaking of serious women, Kamala Harris wants to be president very badly for you, the people, as you can tell from her "For the People" poster…


https://store.kamalaharris.org/poster-for-the-people/


At $29.99 though, she's sure not charging "people's" prices. Of course, she might be having to pay royalties to a certain someone for riffing on their poster. Just saying.

For the race's number one socialist, there's a whole lot of capitalism going on in Bernie Sanders' campaign. He sells so many delightful items that it's hard to choose. But we did anyway. The most random item is this hundred-dollar, black, "Art of a Political Revolution – Artists for Bernie Sanders Coaches Jacket"…


https://store.berniesanders.com/collections/apparel/products/artists-for-bernie-coaches-jacket


Coaches across the land will be clamoring for this one. You know, since coaches are such a strong Bernie-socialist demographic.

If that's a little over your budget you might consider a "Feel the Bern" fanny pack, to help store all those government freebies you'll get from Bernie…


https://store.berniesanders.com/collections/apparel/products/feel-the-bern-fanny-pack


This is the only context in which you'll ever want to hear "feel the burn" and "fanny" in the same sentence.

And finally, from front-runner Joe Biden, we have this fine "Women's Fitted Biden Polo." Which is just about the best polo description ever…


https://store.joebiden.com/collections/apparel/products/biden-polo-womens-fit


It promises the kind of snug approach that Biden loves to provide women. Even when they don't ask.

This was one of the first homesteads in the area in the 1880's and was just begging to be brought back to its original glory — with a touch of modern. When we first purchased the property, it was full of old stuff without any running water, central heat or AC, so needless to say, we had a huge project ahead of us. It took some vision and a whole lot of trust, but the mess we started with seven years ago is now a place we hope the original owners would be proud of.

To restore something like this is really does take a village. It doesn't take much money to make it cozy inside, if like me you are willing to take time and gather things here and there from thrift shops and little antique shops in the middle of nowhere.

But finding the right craftsman is a different story.

Matt Jensen and his assistant Rob did this entire job from sketches I made. Because he built this in his off hours it took just over a year, but so worth the wait. It wasn't easy as it was 18"out of square. He had to build around that as the entire thing we felt would collapse. Matt just reinforced the structure and we love its imperfections.

Here are a few pictures of the process and the transformation from where we started to where we are now:

​How it was

It doesn't look like much yet, but just you wait and see!

By request a photo tour of the restored cabin. I start doing the interior design in earnest tomorrow after the show, but all of the construction guys are now done. So I mopped the floors, washed the sheets, some friends helped by washing the windows. And now the unofficial / official tour.

The Property

The views are absolutely stunning and completely peaceful.
