Difficult times have come, but how can Americans overcome?

Glenn kicked off the radio show this morning with two stories that may seem like they don't affect your life, but Glenn really thinks that they do. In one, a woman shot a man in what she claimed was self-defense and then took his photo with her cell phone before driving off. In another, a man posted a video of his wife's temper tantrum. Reacting to the videos, Glenn was left wondering how Americans have become so self-absorbed and in love with themselves - and told listeners about a Bible passage that showed exactly what was happening in the world.

"When I watched that videotape, I saw those two stories last night and I thought to myself, we are in interesting times," Glenn said.  "Men now are lovers of themselves.  They are not ‑‑ they are not in love with anything but themselves.  Geraldo Rivera tweeting a picture of himself, he is a lover of himself, not truth.  Himself.  We are covetous.  With Al Sharpton, boasting.  That he took the anger and he organized that anger.  Look at our president the way he stands, with his chin up in the air like Mussolini.  We are proud.  We are arrogant.  We are blasphemous.  Chanting hail Satan.  Just outside of the capitol in Austin."

"We are disobedient to our parents.  Tell me the respect that we have for parents anymore.  "I want my healthcare."  You had yours, grandma.  Remember that quote?  We are unthankful.  How many times have your kids really been grateful for anything, really, truly grateful?  We are unholy.  We don't have natural affection towards people anymore.  We don't have natural affection?  We don't ‑‑ we're turning into those people in China that ‑‑ remember that video that came out about a year ago where a kid was run over in the street and they just kept running over him, and people would actually step over this child?  Do you remember that?  We are losing our natural affection for each other.  We are truce‑breakers.  Do our ‑‑ do our allies even know where we stand?  Does our word mean anything anymore?  We're false accusers.  "You're a racist!  It's your fault!"  We are despisers of those that are good.  We are traitors, we are heady, we are high‑minded, we are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God.  There are those who have the form of godliness.  At the same time those who have the form of godliness deny the power of God.  Men are corrupt.  And those who are godly, those who try to stand for those things that are right are suffering persecution and soon prosecution."

Glenn said that the news today reminds him of 2 Timothy 3 in The Bible:

3 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money,boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, [a]haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of [b]godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 6 For among them are those who [c]enter into households and captivate [d]weak women weighed down with sins, led on byvarious impulses, 7 always learning and never able to come to the [e]knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith.9 But they will not make further progress; for their folly will be obvious to all, just as [f]Jannes’s and Jambres’s folly was also.

10 Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, [g]perseverance, 11 persecutions, andsufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord rescued me! 12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 13 But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is [h]inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for[i]training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

Glenn said, "As I lay in bed last night truly frightened for my country and mankind in a different way, not about the red, white and blue - but about humanity. And then I turned the page to Chapter 4 as I thought to myself, 'So what do we do? What do we do?' Tell the truth. Tell the universal everlasting truth. Say it with everything in you. Reprove, rebuke, exhort, beg if you have to, with all long suffering, endurance. Because the time will come. The time is here. When most people just will not be able to endure the truth, they'll chase after their own lusts and their own desires and they'll heap those things on themselves and they will surround themselves with teachers and professors and educated of the world to give them and tell them the things they want to hear. And they will turn their ears and their heads and they will no longer even listen to the truth. And then they will just start listening and accepting fables."

"But we have to keep our eye on the truth, and nothing grand, nothing profound, if you will, nothing Earth‑shattering, nothing that anybody had to study for, you know, 40 years. I've spent my whole life. Simple. Truth. And endure all the things that will happen. And become an evangelist for that truth. The truth that there is a god. He's going to judge all of us in the end. He's the only ‑‑ he's the only time that there will ever be true justice. There will never be justice. There will never be equality. There will never be anything because man is involved. But there is coming a time when he will judge, and whether it's you or the other guy that "gets it" in the end, I got it. I'll be judged, you'll be judged and so maybe we should serve him. And the best way to serve him is to serve our fellow man. And how do we serve our fellow man?"

"You know what? As a parent, as a parent there are times when you just cannot console your own children. There's nothing you can say. They're beyond reason. And you just hold them and you just tell them it's going to be okay. It's going to be okay because I know tomorrow comes, and I know we can start all over, and I know, honey, you don't want to hear this, but this will make us stronger. It's going to be okay. Find the truth and dedicate your life to it."

"I'm a watchman on the tower and it is my responsibility to tell you the things that I see coming, but once I've told you, you are the watchman on the tower. If you don't say it, if you don't preach it, if you don't dedicate your life as much as I dedicate my life. Every second of the day I'm trying to find out how I'm trying to get more people to understand. If you don't do it, judgment's on you, not me. It's your job."

Several months ago, at the Miss Universe competition, two women took a selfie, then posted it on Instagram. The caption read, "Peace and love." As a result of that selfie, both women faced death threats, and one of the women, along with her entire family, had to flee her home country. The occasion was the 2017 Miss Universe competition, and the women were Miss Iraq and Miss Israel. Miss Iraq is no longer welcome in her own country. The government threatened to strip her of her crown. Of course, she was also badgered for wearing a bikini during the competition.

In an interview, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, said:

When I posted the picture I didn't think for a second there would be blowback. I woke up to calls from my family and the Miss Iraq Organization going insane. The death threats I got online were so scary. The director of the Miss Iraq Organization called me and said they're getting heat from the ministry. He said I have to take the picture down or they will strip me of my title.

Yesterday, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, posted another selfie with Miss Israel, during a visit to Jerusalem.

In an interview, she said that:

I don't think Iraq and Israel are enemies; I think maybe the governments are enemies with each other. There's a lot of Iraqi people that don't have a problem with Israelis.

This is, of course, quite an understatement: Iraq, home to roughly 15,000 Palestinians, refuses to acknowledge Israel as a legitimate country, as it is technically at war with Israel. The adages says that a picture is worth a thousand words. What are we to do when many of those words are hateful or deadly? And how can we find the goodness in such bad situations?

No political bias. That's the catchphrase you're likely to see blasted all over the news today. The Office of the Inspector General found no evidence that political bias played any role, either with former director Comey or other FBI agents, during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. So is it "all good now"... "carry on"... "nothing to see here"? Hardly. Here are a few of the highlights from the 568 page report.

The report makes it clear that there's no evidence that political bias influenced this investigation, but why did they take five hundred and sixty eight pages to make that point? Well, after reading it, I kind of think they want us to understand how difficult it is to prove political bias. I think the Inspector General wants us to read this report in its entirety, and read between the lines. Here are a few of the highlights.

First and foremost, this report straight eviscerated James Comey. You know one of the most controversial decisions of President Trump's tenure - so far - has been his decision to fire the former FBI director. Let's imagine for a second that Trump never did that and Comey was sitting at his desk at the Hoover Building yesterday. I can almost guarantee you that after the release of this report yesterday, Comey would have been fired by this morning anyway. Here are just a few quotes describing his behavior:

"Extraordinary and insubordinate"... not "reasonable"... "engaged in ad hoc decision making"... "serious error in judgement"

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time.

It goes on and on. This report just destroys Comey's behavior. There's no way he could have remained FBI Director.

The report goes on to analyze the behavior of several FBI agents that were involved in the Clinton investigation. Strzok and Page were but two of five employees that showed questionable behavior, either through text messages or instant messaging. If you read the texts and transcripts, they're pretty damning. In Strzok's case, his bias could have caused a delay in analyzing the contents of Anthony Weiner's laptop. I say again, it could have, but as the OIG alludes… political bias is hard to prove. Another agent that had been caught saying questionable things on an instant messaging service, was actually one of the agents that conducted Hillary Clinton's interview. In that interview, the OIG seems to acknowledge that the FBI had caught Hillary in a lie, and still they let her go. But… political bias is hard to prove.

See the theme here?

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time. But, as is the common theme for the entire Clinton family, it is those around them that suffer the most. The FBI has been tarnished. People have lost their jobs. Agents have been humiliated. All this for an arrogant and corrupt politician.

Attention earthlings: a "climate emergency" exists. It's official now, because the Berkeley City Council declared it. So, it must be true.

Frankly, you must be living under a rock if you didn't already know that a state of climate emergency exists. And if you don't do something about it, like now, you could be living under a rock very soon. Because according to the foremost authority on climate doom — the Berkeley City Council — this emergency is as dire as World War II.

Council Member Cheryl Davila warns that global warming is driving us toward, "…the sixth mass extinction of species, which could devastate much of life on earth for the next 10 million years."

The city council resolution says:

During World War II, the Bay Area came together across race, age, class, gender and other differences in an extraordinary regional mobilization, building and repairing Liberty ships, converting car assembly plants into tank manufacturing facilities…

The Berkeley City Council says the only way to avert World War II-level disaster is if Americans mobilize in the same way now to confront climate change as we did in 1942 to confront Nazism. Because climate change and Nazism are definitely the same.

It gets worse. The resolution calls our current climate emergency "the greatest crisis in history."

Seriously, their resolution sounds straight out of the Galactic Empire handbook — "mobilizing workers" to build and install "renewable energy infrastructure."

Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years.

Berkeley committed itself to becoming a "carbon sink" by 2030. For the uninitiated, that means they want the city's greenhouse gas emissions to be in the negative. Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years. Except they won't be able to use any farm animals, because you know, too much methane.

Becoming a carbon sink is not their only strategy. Their resolution also mentions that earth has too many people screwing up the atmosphere, so we must "humanely stabilize population." Interesting — there were some World War II-era figures also interested in "stabilizing" population. They just forgot the "humane" part.
