Is your evil detector broken?

Below is a partial transcript of Glenn's opening monologue from Thursday's TV show:

I think some people’s evil detectors are completely broken. I don’t know if they were ever installed. What do you say you and I start exercising it, call evil by its name? Anybody, anybody who is working with the terrorists, wants to make sure that everybody who interviews them has to be wrapped up, you know, in the headdress because I’m going to have to stone you if you don’t, I think you’re evil.

Yeah, that seems to be the current way of this administration’s strategy is to partner with some of these people. It might be that we’re on the wrong side of history. From trying to woo dictators with love letters and radical extremists with cushy jobs in foundations of former presidents and even within the Department of Homeland Security itself, America is a disaster waiting to happen, and the world is already on fire.

Something when I was at Fox we were mocked for bringing up, Greece. Unemployment has ballooned now 27%. Police are now clashing with protesters over the murder of a 35-year-old rapper. Normally when we lose a rapper, I’m not like put it on the news, but this one was stabbed twice in the chest by a self-professed member of the Golden Dawn party. You remember them, evil, the new Nazi party in Greece.

For those who maybe are like well, I don’t know, were the Nazis that bad? Yes, evil. It’s so bad now in Greece that thousands are starting to flee to, get this, Turkey. Imagine things are so bad that you think Turkey is the place you ought to be. Turkey is now getting it from both sides, because hundreds of thousands of refugees are coming in from Syria and now from Greece, and the region is coming apart at the seams.

America, I told you earlier this week you’re not on the verge of losing your country. I think you have lost your country. And we have some things that I’m going to show you tonight that I think will show you that, you know, it still can be turned around. But we are on the brink of World War III. If nobody else in the media will tell you, well, tough luck.

I hope I’m wrong. Just pray and hope that this network, you know, five years from now, we can all go boy, were you a dummy. But let’s remember, three years ago I was on Fox telling you the same thing – maybe in five years we look at the Middle East, and it’s all great, and it’s Jeffersonian democracy, and we all have a laugh. But we’re not laughing now, are we?

We are technically already at war with China, Russia, and Iran. It is a proxy war through Syria. The United States is extraordinarily vulnerable in this proxy war. I don’t know if you saw For the Record last night. Please watch that. We have great producers that are putting together this incredible show once a week now. It happens on Wednesday nights.

Last night, we looked at the economic terrorism that struck us in 2008, and we’re only worse off now. What the Fed is doing is tanking the dollar. Instead of stopping quantitative easing, which is printing, digitizing money, they’ve “unexpectedly” – not so much if you understand evil – “unexpectedly” kept it going. It’s unsustainable to continue to print or digitize $1 trillion in cash every year, and any talk of recovery is a joke. This is all smoke and mirrors.

If you can’t reduce it by $5 billion a month, we don’t have an economy, and we’re in a lose-lose scenario. If you stop printing money, the house of cards falls down, and the IMF has said you destroy the whole world, so the whole world is angry at us. Two, if you continue printing money, you eventually collapse, and the whole world is mad at you, and we’re all poor.

The arrogance of the Fed is astonishing. They think they’re so smart that they can tinker with the system and make every problem go away. The Germans thought the same thing after World War I. So did Poland and Romania and Brazil in the 1990s and more recently, Zimbabwe. Just because we’re in the United States of America doesn’t make us immune to hyperinflation.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to me there any adults in the room who are willing to speak the truth to the American people, and the adults that are in the room don’t understand what truth is because their evil detector is broken. We’re going to find it hard to find an exit. I know I get made fun of for, you know, advising people to prepare, but you know, I don’t know how you can survey the news every day and not see any other possible solution other than buckle up, get ready.

It’s getting closer, but it’s going to be okay, because I truly believe that most people are good, and as long as we are good and know where the source of good comes from – evil comes from one place, good comes from another – we will survive. So it’s important that we build ourselves up, tell each other the truth of what’s really going on, but then also find the stories where people are doing the right thing and figure out what it is that makes these people special.

Why are they making a difference? From the six regular people who started the Colorado recall effort to the bikers who started a Facebook page which led to thousands of bikers descending on D.C., to the 19-year-old kid who confronted a thief at Dairy Queen that I’m going to tell you about a little later. I talked to this kid little earlier today, to the mom who turned in her 18-year-old son after she learned that he robbed an 85-year-old vet.

Rough waters are on the horizon. We have to realize that these things are coming, but we’ve seen them before, and we’ve survived. But we prepared, not just temporally, but spiritually as well. Focus on being a better person than you were today. Keep making a difference. Focus on God, because all the so-called leaders are focusing on things like being pen pals with dictators because they think they’re going to solve it. Trust me on this one, only God will solve these problems

It's not just the Twitter mobs, the Leftist extremists and the flagrant fourth-wave feminists who want ICE abolished. As we've seen, there's a growing number of politicians who want to see it as well.

Cue Alejandro Alvarez, who in his 32 years has managed to cultivate his brand as a "serial immigration violator." Alejandro has been deported 11 times. Well, he's facing deportation once again, after allegedly "slashing his wife with a chainsaw." His wife is in recovery and is expected to survive.

Around 3:00 pm last Wednesday, police arrived at Alejandro's. When they arrived, they found Alvarez's wife suffering from "traumatic physical injuries, believed to have been inflicted by a chainsaw." The couple's three children were huddled in fear inside the home. Alejandro's wife was rushed to a nearby trauma center for an emergency surgery.

Alejandro fled the scene of the crime, but was eventually hauled in by police and booked under "suspicion of attempted murder, child endangerment, hit and run, and grand theft auto."

Sounds like the kind of guy who should be in our country illegally, right?

ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley noted that "Immigration officers have lodged a detainer against Alvarez, requesting that local authorities notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement before his release to allow them to take the man into custody."

This is the new reality.

This is the new reality. The immigration agency has to ask for permission, to file requests, to have illegal immigrants who are guilty of crimes dealt with. Luckily for Alejandro, Los Angeles is a sanctuary city, so maybe he'll get another pass and be back on the streets in no time.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

Why is nobody talking about this?

Alabama law enforcement officials say that an illegal immigrant and an immigrant in the United States on a green card are responsible for the brutal murders of a grandmother and her 13-year-old special needs granddaughter in what investigators say is violence related to Mexican drug cartels.

The Purple Heart is reserved for those wounded or killed during battle. Awarded by the President, the medal has George Washington's image right there on the front of it. Make no mistake, it is reserved for heroes. True heroes. Men and women who've faced death and still persevered. Soldiers who fought in battle at the cost of their limbs, their lives, or their inner peace. John F. Kennedy earned a Purple Heart for his heroism as a gunboat pilot in 1944. John McCain received one for, well, we all know his horrific story. Colin Powell. Roughly one million Purple Heart medals have been awarded to veterans, all of whom were determined to have fought valiantly, with courage and heart.

So it was a bit of a head-scratcher to hear comments from Democratic Representative Steve Cohen from Tennessee and self-appointed "Leader in Effort to #ImpeachTrump." During a House Oversight Committee hearing questioning Peter Strzok, Cohen said, perplexingly, that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart. You know, because he's injured by all those mean text messages that HE sent?

As we've seen, other than Cohen's fanboy praise, Strzok hasn't gotten off easy. Thankfully. The Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General wrote: "We did not have confidence that Strzok's decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the [Anthony] Weiner laptop was free from bias."

Lack of confidence. I believe that's one of the criteria for a different medal. Not a Purple Heart, though. Sorry, Strzok, you'll have to get your trophy elsewhere.

Time mgazine is back at it again, reporting the real news, doing the proper journalism. One of their latest articles is sure to earn them a Pulitzer. Surely. The article is titled, "Women Are Buying Up Plan B Because They're Terrified of the Future Supreme Court."

Here's how the article opens:

Within hours of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement announcement last month, Emily Hauser was standing at a drugstore counter asking a pharmacist for two packages of Plan B. At age 53, she didn't need the emergency contraception pills — in fact, she wasn't sure who would, or when. But Hauser bought them anyway.

I like that the article sets up Kennedy's retirement as an apocalyptic event. A recurring theme in the mainstream media, now that I think of it, especially lately. Here's the gist of it:

Across the country, Americans are stockpiling emergency contraception in light of Justice Kennedy's retirement and President Donald Trump's Monday nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The nation's highest court is on its way to having a conservative majority, making threats against Roe v. Wade seem more dire than ever.

A good article includes backstory. History. The context. Here's what Time had to say about the sudden influx—some would say panic—in birth control:

To understand the interest in buying up Plan B, you need to brush up on Roe v. Wade. Some background: The court handed down the 7-2 decision in 1973, confirming that a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy is covered by the Fourteenth Amendment. Progress has been rocky since then.

Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies.

Ah, yes. Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies. At this point, it's impossible for those inflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and now Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome, to have a civil conversation. They certainly aren't going to budge in their opinion. Our main goal, obviously, is to connect to them as fellow human beings, living in the same chaotic world, and, hey, maybe along the way they'll admit that, maybe, they're a little more biased and deranged than they previously realized.

If all you knew about American politics came from The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, or MSNBC, you'd think that a "Blue wave" is about to swamp the country, with hip, millennial geniuses like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez surfing the crest of the wave. In fact, you would already think Ocasio-Cortez is the greatest hope for America since Barack Obama.

America is a very large country, and reality is usually more complex than the media lets on. But, since the media already has their narrative and superstar Ocasio-Cortez set for this November, there's no room for another young, minority, female, child of immigrants, political outsider, from the ultimate blue-wave state of California, named Elizabeth Heng. Well, there probably would be room for a story like that, except that she's a conservative.

Thirty-two-year-old Elizabeth Heng is running for Congress against Democrat Jim Costa, in California's 16th district. It's been 40 years since a Republican won in that district.

In the early 1980s, Heng's parents fled the violence in Cambodia and immigrated to the U.S. In 2008, after graduating from Stanford where she was student-body president, Heng opened several cell-phone stores with her brothers in the central San Joaquin Valley. Running her own business and managing 75 employees opened her eyes to a not-so-dirty secret about capitalism trying to survive the virus of progressivism. She says, "I saw firsthand how government regulations impacted businesses negatively. I constantly felt that from Washington, D.C., and Sacramento, they were saying that I was everything wrong with our country, when all I was doing was creating jobs."

That's when she decided to venture to Washington, D.C., where she worked for six years learning the ins and outs of legislation and campaigning. She ended up working as a director for President Trump's inauguration ceremony, a job she managed while also finishing her MBA at Yale.

Fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone.

One of the biggest lessons she learned working in Washington became the platform she is now running for office on: fiscal responsibility. She says, "In a family or a business, we don't suddenly act surprised when a budget comes up for the year. We get it done."

What a concept.

Still, fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone. So, don't expect Elizabeth Heng to replace Ocasio-Cortez as the media darling anytime soon.
