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.
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!”
