What has happened to American's ability to endure?

Last night when he got into D.C. last night for his speech, Glenn saw two stories on TheBlaze that affected him deeply and brought to mind a conversation he had with his kids about the nature of endurance. In one story, a woman shot a man in what could have been self-defense, but then she ended up taking out her cell phone and taking a picture of the body before driving off. And then in another, a man was so fed up with his wife’s temper tantrums he decided to secretly videotape her with his cell phone. What is happening in America?

"Last night I saw on the front page of TheBlaze, I saw two stories that really impacted me in a way that I don't know if I've been impacted this way, this deeply before. There are two stories on the front page of TheBlaze," Glenn said.

"One is a woman at a gas station in Houston who has an argument with a man, they're not even sure if they knew each other. They're looking now for witnesses that were close to find out exactly what happened. But a woman is grabbed at a gas station and she kind of shakes him off and she goes in and she grabs a rifle and she points this rifle at this guy, and they're just talking. And nobody really knows what happened. And then she shoots him in the chest. He dies. She takes out her cellphone, takes a picture of his dead body, gets into her car and leaves. What the hell is that?"

Watch video of the incident below. The woman claims the man, Louis Daniel, was making unwanted sexual advances and she feared for her life. She did not wait for the police to arrive, according to TheBlaze:

"Then there was another story," Glenn said, "There's this woman in the car and the headline is Man uploads wife's tirade and files for divorce. And I'm ‑‑ I don't know why I even clicked on the story because it just doesn't even sound interesting."

"I click on it, and I start watching this woman," he continued, "and it's probably midnight and I click on the story and I just want to see what it is real quick, and this woman is sitting in a truck and the guy is filming her and they're driving. And she starts saying, take me to the lake. I want to go to the lake. I just want to go with a boat to the lake. Why? And he says, honey, I've got to take care of my truck. I've got to ‑‑ all I want to do today is I want to clean my truck and I've got to, I don't know, rotate the tires or something. 'It's always about you!'"

"And she just goes crazy. And she starts acting like a 2‑year‑old and it is so deeply disturbing because, quite honestly, it says something about parenting. We have parented people who aren't even able to function anymore in our society. We have parented a group," he said, "but some of us have parented, some of us are still parenting, but our parents so lost track of what's real. And I'm sorry, Little Miss Princess, but you don't always get your way. Life doesn't always work out the way you thought it would."

Watch the video below:

"Best thing that we ever did I think as a family for our older kids is we put values and principles on our chairs at our kitchen table, and there were about eight chairs at this table and each one, one said hope on the back, one said charity, one said honesty. And sometimes, you know, if one of the kids was having a bad day, you know, I'd say, 'You know what? You need to sit in the self‑control chair. You need to sit in the honesty chair.' And sometimes I would say it to myself: I need to sit in the honesty chair today. And there was one value that we wanted to put. We had the kids decide with us what are the values that are ‑‑ that we want, what are the ‑‑ what are the things that are important in life, and there was one and it was endurance. And my kids fought against it: 'Dad, you always make life sound like it's such a drudgery! No, endurance doesn't belong here!' And I said, yes, it does. 'Dad, man, you don't have to endure life.' Yes, you do."

"Much of your life, you will just have to get up in the day and endure until you can put your head on the pillow that night. Most of life is just endure 'til the end, just endure this. You think I ‑‑ and this wasn't popular. 'Do you think I wanted to go to all of your dance recitals? There were a lot of those things I just had to endure. And I did it with grace and a smile. I wanted to kill myself every time.' They're like, 'I've got another recital. I'm in a new play.' 'Oh, you've got to be kidding me. That's great.'"

"Endurance. Nobody can endure anymore. Everybody's special. Everybody gets their own way. Life has to be fair. Everybody has to have their portion. 'This is what I was promised.' You're not promised anything! Nothing! Forget about the government. If the government goes away tomorrow, who's making you promises?"

"Hutch said last night on TV, he said, 'Glenn, we just have to get people to ‑‑ just have to get people to realize that when they're hungry, I guess they will work.' He was making great points on we've got to cut welfare. We have to cut this giant state and we have to require people to work. And I got so frustrated, I said to him, 'Hutch, at what point do you think people are going to work?' 'Well, if they're hungry enough.' If they're hungry enough somebody is going to come and say, 'You know why you're hungry? Because those people over there, they have all your stuff and they don't want you to eat.' And they'll organize and they'll kill that person for that food! Our society has completely broken down. And if you don't see the handwriting on the wall, I ‑‑ it's probably because you're watching ‑‑ did you hear about the new prince that was born yesterday?"

Independence Day is one of the few days when Americans come together to celebrate our country and the continued vision that our Founding Fathers crafted in 1776. But what is that vision? It seems with every passing July 4th, Americans lose even more of a sense of what the original intent of our nation was supposed to be. It's becoming increasingly important to read the Founding Fathers in their own words and to remember the vision that they cast for our nation. Here are our TOP 10 favorite Founding Fathers' quotes to help us remember their original views of government, freedom, and the American vision.

We live in a dark time, so it is more important now than ever to make sure you are anchored to the truth.

Glenn was recently on the “Chicks on the Right” podcast for a follow-up interview after Amy Jo Clark and Miriam Weaver joined Glenn on his podcast back in March. The three dove into a lively discussion that touched on several things happening in Glenn's personal life, and Glenn delved into the importance of truth in our increasingly Orwellian society.

Glenn told the “Chicks” about his upcoming first novel for young adults, Chasing Embers, which is set in a dystopian world where the wildest WEF fantasies have come true and history has been completely rewritten. Glenn revealed that he was inspired to write the book while reading Karl Marx. He reflected on how Karl Marx was, and still is in many cases, considered this articulate revolutionary, but when compared to the words of the Founding Fathers, his articulation and arguments pale in comparison. He wanted to explore the idea, "What if Jefferson was the revolutionary again, not Marx?" Chasing Embers asks how we preserve the philosophies of the founders and the values of the Constitution so that our children have a chance to discover it if the world turns completely upside down.

Glenn also discussed how important it is to learn history, to anchor yourself in truth, God, and the Constitution, and our responsibility to preserve them in the face of the dystopian movement that is increasingly encroaching on Western civilization. Glenn described the country as "suicidal" and posited whether we can rein in a nation that is hurdling itself towards the brink. He said we can do our part to help, but unless the country decides it wants to live, it will die. We have to be prepared to endure such a scenario with our morals intact and the necessary knowledge to rebuild on hand.

Towards the end of the conversation, Glenn revealed some of the lessons he's learned in his decades on radio. He said that you have to know yourself--both the good and bad--be ready to defend your beliefs, and admit when you are wrong.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!

For the past four years, the mainstream media has been covering for Biden, claiming that he is "fit for duty," despite the strong evidence to the contrary. But after the whole world saw just how "fit" Biden truly is during last night's disastrous debate, the illusion was completely shattered, and the media is scrambling to save face.

Glenn pointed out in his post-debate reaction on his radio show this morning that the mainstream media is in a panic. Biden's performance was so catastrophic that it seems like the Democrats might have to jump ship and find a new candidate. Meanwhile, the question is what to do with Biden between now and the election. Glenn pointed out that as commander-in-chief, Biden has the sole ability to respond to a nuclear threat to America, yet he can hardly complete a sentence.

People from across the political spectrum are reeling from this absolute disaster, weighing in on just how bad it was and making suggestions on how to move forward. We highlighted 10 of these responses below:

1. The Democratic Party is panicking 

2. Undecided voters lean away from Biden

3. Chip Roy calls on Kamala Harris to invoke the 25th Amendment

4. The Democrats look for a replacement 

5. The White House is called out on lies about Biden's health

6. Politico calls out Biden's "uneven" performance 

7. Joy Reid and Obama's crew panic over Biden's display of feebleness 

8. BU historian calls Biden debate 'worst performance by a candidate'

9. Van Jones calls Biden's debate performance 'painful'

10. Biden looked exactly like how conservatives claimed he looks 

​YOU made Target​ choose between profit and 'progress'

Have you seen Target's newest pride month collection? Don't worry, you don't have to break your hard-won boycott streak to satisfy your morbid curiosity. Glenn took a look during a recent radio show. If you remember last year's display, you might be expecting horrors such as tuck-friendly bathing suits, chest binders for girls, and apparel made by a transgender Satan apologist. Fortunately, that's not what Glenn found. Instead, the collection was very tame, with one item being a charcuterie board with the phrase, "It's giving charcuterie" printed on it. So what happened? Did Target have a come-to-Jesus moment over the last year?

You. You are what happened.

The Target boycotts did exactly what they were supposed to do, they punched Target right in the wallet. According to the New York Post, Target lost a whopping TEN BILLION dollars in just ten days. You stood up for what you believed and Target had no choice but to listen. And this year's pride collection is proof that they heard you loud and clear.

"The inmates are now in charge of the asylum."

Now, this doesn't represent some change in the ethos of the company, but rather a desperate step back to protect their financial interests. The problem Target is now facing is that they don't have a whole lot of room to step back, as they have spent years cultivating a left-wing, progressive culture that really wants Target to take two steps forward instead. As Glenn said, "The inmates are now in charge of the asylum." These progressive activists within their company that they have pandered to for years don't take being told "no" very well. So when Target rolled back its pride collection, the internal backlash was immense.

Glenn's team was given access to leaked internal messaging within Target's Slack channel. The messages show the outcry of Target employees after Target announced they would be reducing the pride collection. Based on their reactions you would think they had just witnessed a national tragedy unfold. Some employees questioned if they could still work for Target after what had happened (remember, Target is still a VERY progressive company), and other employees discussed submitting ethics complaints. About a month after the internal firestorm, Target employees sent the following list of demands to leadership so that Target could atone:

  • An acknowledgment in writing, of the harm Target caused to the LGBTQ+ community.
  • A sincere apology.
  • To partner with prominent LGBTQ advocacy groups.
  • To immediately reinstate the Pride collection in full.
  • To donate to LGBTQ causes.
  • To implement sensitivity training for employees.
  • To cease all contributions to politicians and organizations that do not support the LGBTQ community.

Target has made a mistake.

By cultivating such a radical progressive community, they have placed themselves in a precarious position. On one side, there's the progressive monster they cultivated, with its ever-growing, ever-changing list of demands. On the other side, there are people like you—people who just want to shop without having to walk by transgender children's underwear. The more Target gives to the woke monster, the more they alienate their customers. Now Target is trapped—if they give in further to the woke mob, they'll lose billions of dollars, but if they don't, they'll be attacked from the inside.

So let Target serve as an example to other companies. Customers have a voice too, and when you stand up and use it, a great many things can happen.
