New terror threat

On Friday, the State Department issued a broad global travel alert for U.S. citizens for the entire month of August, as well as the order to close 21 embassies across the Middle East beginning on Sunday because of an unspecified threat.

“Current information suggests that Al Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” the alert posted on the State Department’s website stated.

“Terrorists may elect to use a variety of means and weapons and target both official and private interests,” the alert said. “U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure.  Terrorists have targeted and attacked subway and rail systems, as well as aviation and maritime services.  U.S. citizens should take every precaution to be aware of their surroundings and to adopt appropriate safety measures to protect themselves when traveling.”

The embassies remain closed today in 19 cities throughout the Muslim world as we approach the first anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that killed the U.S. Ambassador in Libya.

This morning on radio, Glenn couldn't help but point out the inconsistency of this new major threat with the notion given by the Obama administration over the past few years that Al Qaeda is "on the run".

"We have Al‑Qaeda so on the run.  I mean, we are so winning this war that we have decided that we're just going to close up shop in our embassies all across the Middle East," Glenn said sarcastically.

"We are — we have them so on the run and what we are doing is we're running to make it look like we're running, even though they are the ones running.  Even though they are the ones scared, we're the ones closing — this is so clever, they'll never see this coming," he continued.

"That's how scared we have them, that they are plotting and planning what is called the most audacious attack on us since September 11th, more chatter than there was before September 11th, and we're so — we've got it so in the bag because we have — well, first of all, nobody screws with us in the Middle East because he has changed everything for us."

"I don't think that's exactly what's going on," Pat chimed in.

"Maybe a couple of logic pitfalls there," Stu added. "You know, maybe they are on the run in that they are running to new explosions that they're planning."

Unfortunately, it does appear the administration was indeed wrong (…or lying…you decide). They now believe that Al-Qaeda terrorists are planning an attack and apparently it's going to be big and strategically significant based on the recently reported on intercepted communications.

"This must just be scare tactics," Glenn said. "That's what it must be. Because that's what they said about the last president, that anytime he would bring stuff like that, they were just trying to get his poll numbers up.  Although I strangely don't think it's going to work the same for this one."

What is alarming, Glenn noted, is the confidence these terrorists showed when communicating…and their air of certainty depute the authorities lack of knowledge on the target of the attack.

"In other words, even the NSA doesn't scare them," Glenn noted. "They don't care."

Glenn went on to point out that there is good reason they likely don't care. They think they have so decimated us — or someone has — that it doesn't matter what they do. But closing all of our embassies in the region certainly sends a message around the world. And as Glenn points out, if you look at the way we handled the Benghazi attacks — or didn't handle them — it's not hard to imagine why Al Qaeda, who was behind the attack, wouldn't show fear to the United States government.

The perpetrators of that incident have still yet to be brought to justice.

Republican Rep. Peter King had the following to say about the most recent threat

"Well, quite frankly, Martha, because this threat was so specific as to how enormous it was going to be and also — as to certain dates were given but it didn't specify where it's going to be and, you know, the assumption is it's probably most likely to happen in the Middle East at or about one of the embassies, but there's no guarantee of that at all."

In other words, while the intelligence may be telling us a general timeframe around when this attack could take place, the location of the attack could be anywhere. And the blatant openness in their communication suggests a high level of confidence in whatever it is that they have planned.

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:

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.

Top 5 economic milestones that show HOW BAD Bidenomics has made the economy

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.
