Irony: John Kerry finds himself making the Bush administration WMD argument

Secretary of State John Kerry spoke out about the situation in Syria yesterday, and based on his scathing remarks it looks like the U.S. is headed toward a military intervention in the country. Kerry said it is “undeniable” chemical weapons were used in Syria and any attempts to cover it up are a “moral obscenity.”

“Let me be clear: The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders, by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity,” Kerry said. “By any standard it is inexcusable, and despite the excuses and equivocations that some have manufactured, it is undeniable.”

Watch Kerry’s speech below:

The United Nations weapons’ inspectors have yet to conclude that chemical weapons were indeed used in Syria, but Kerry’s remarks conjure up memories of the Bush Administration’s talk about weapons of mass destruction in the rev-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

“The weird thing is 100,000 people have been killed and they haven’t ramped up their rhetoric until now,” Pat said. “From the same people who are yelling about Bush: ‘This president lied about WMDs!’”

“This whole thing is coming apart,” Glenn said. “And let me tell you something, one of the most laughed about, mocked, and deeply branded phrases during the Bush Administration had to come from the former vice president when he was all bearded up like some freak who had gone insane and he gets on stage – and this was about weapons of mass destruction and Bush. Here it is.”

AL GORE: He betrayed this country. He played on our fears.

“That was about WMDs, and that's what they were saying,” Glenn continued. “Now, what are they doing [now]? What are they doing? And may I just point out: there is no clear and present threat from Syria.”

We all know what ultimately happened in Iraq. The weapons of mass destruction did not actually exist, and we spent the next eight years embroiled in war.

“Now, when are we going to learn our lesson? Ever? Or will it be too late,” Glenn asked. “We were stupid enough to buy into this. So what happened? We went in, because they were saying he's using weapons of mass destruction. And everybody in the Senate and the House, voted yes… including John Kerry.”

Kerry would later eat his words with the now infamous ‘I was for it before I was aginst it' remarks.

“I was for it before I was against it. Where do you think that came from? He was for the war and then became against it. Fine. I was for it too, and I'm against it now. But I learned my lesson,” Glenn said. “He didn't. He's now going to repeat exactly the same thing.”

The Bush Administration emphatically claimed that the situation in Iraq posed a clear and present to the United States because if the WMDs fell into the wrong hands, they could be used against the U.S. Does the Assad regime pose that same threat?

“So let's look at the Assad regime, and find out is it a clear and present danger to the United States,” Glenn suggested. “They want regime change. And is that a clear and present danger to us? Well, okay, you can make the case – and I have not heard anybody make this case – we have made the case that [Syria has] weapons of mass destruction, but I have not heard [the Obama Administration] make the case that it is a clear an present danger to the United States of America.”

“And why,” he asked. “Because today Russia and now China has added their name to the list of ‘Don't do anything in Syria.’ So now we have Russia and Iran and China telling us, ‘Mind your own practice now, America, unless you are willing to get into World War 3 and go up against Russia, Iran, and China.’”

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

Population: 923,484

12. North Dakota

Population: 780,588

13. Alaska

Population: 732,984

14. Washington DC

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
