Glenn on Ted Cruz: He is a machine

When Glenn opened the radio program this morning at 9am ET, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was more than 18 hours into his epic anti-Obamacare speech on the Senate floor. Sen. Cruz began his crusade at 2:40pm ET on Tuesday, when he announced: “I will rise today in opposition to Obamacare.” He later added that he would speak “until I am no longer able to stand.”

“18 hours, 25 minutes later, Ted Cruz does not have a hair out of place, and he is a machine,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This guy I watched last night on the floor of the Senate and I thought, finally a debate on healthcare and a discussion on healthcare that was reasoned, was telling the truth, wasn't yelling and screaming. It was just, ‘Look, this is the fact. This is what's gonna happen.’”

While this may look and sound like a filibuster, Sen. Cruz’s actions will not actually halt the Senate from voting on the House Continuing Resolution passed on Friday that defunds Obamacare. Cloture had already been filed, and voting will begin today regardless of how long Sen. Cruz goes on.

Over the last 20+ hours, Sen. Cruz has proven time and time again that he is a gifted orator and his ability to continually convey his thoughts without much help. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rand Paul (R-KY), and Mike Lee (R-UT) have all taken part in the speech by asking Sen. Cruz questions – providing much needed relief. Glenn highlighted some of the best moments this morning.

“Here is a year ago Ted Cruz talking about, a year ago, things were different, but times have changed,” Glenn explained.

CRUZ: The argument you make is a serious one, and I would not encourage any member of this body to disregard the commitments they made to their constituents. But I would at the same time encourage every member not just to keep in mind the promises made on the campaign trail, but the ongoing views of your constituents because as circumstances change, all of us respond to change, circumstances including our constituents and so ‑‑

VOICE: Agreed.

CRUZ: One must certainly respect the promises made, but at the same time in the nine months we've been here, in the year since the three of us were active candidates, situation on ObamaCare's changed. Look, I very much opposed ObamaCare a year ago, two years ago, and three years ago. The time it was passed, I thought it was a bad idea. But a year ago the unions didn't oppose it. A year ago the president hadn't granted exemptions for big corporations. A year ago members of congress hadn't gone to the president and asked for an exemption and gotten it. A year ago we hadn't seen companies all over this country forcing people in 29 hours a week. A year ago we hadn't seen one big corporation after another dropping their health insurance coverage, such as UPS telling 15,000 employees "Your spousal coverage is being dropped because of ObamaCare. Your husbands and wives have just lost their coverage." So I would submit, Mr. President, that the circumstances have changed.

“He's doing this without teleprompter,” an impressed Pat said. “I think in most cases he's doing it without notes. These are all things that are off the top of his head – hour after hour after hour.”

One of the more interesting things Sen. Cruz drew attention to was the growing exodous of Congressional staffers because of the impending healthcare regulations.

CRUZ: What does it say about ObamaCare is such a disaster that congressional staffers ‑‑ and mind you, a lot of these congressional staffers who may tender their letters of resignation are staffers working for democratic senators who drafted ObamaCare, who fight for ObamaCare every day, what does it say that staffers would be willing to quit because the quality of healthcare under ObamaCare would be so poor that they would rather go somewhere else rather than be subject to those laws? I think that speaks volumes.

“These are great points that you just don't hear. That's why they've granted… themselves an exception,” Glenn said. “But you don't hear that it's because all of the staffers are quitting. I was so outraged last night… And I kept hearing that they have a special exemption, a special exemption. I know that. I've heard that, but the more you think about it, the more you realize – who do these people think they are? They're granting themselves the exception and we can't have it? We don't have that power. We can't do that. “

Sen. Cruz also reminded Americans that insurance premiums would go down as the result of the Affordable Care Act, but more and more people are realizing that is simply not the case.

CRUZ: You remember when President Obama was defending the ObamaCare bill, he told the American people, he promised the American people, he said, "As a result of ObamaCare, the average family's health insurance premium will drop $2,500." And he said, "That's going to happen by the end of my first term." Now, Madam President, I would point out the president's first term ended nine months ago. And by the end of the president's first term, that promise was proven not just a little off the mark, not just kind of sort of a little bit not entirely accurate. It was proven 100% categorically objectively false. Let me suggest to every American: If your health insurance premiums have dropped $2,500 as the President promised you, as the president promised the average family, so that there would be tens of millions for whom that was true, then I would encourage you to enthusiastically stand up and defend ObamaCare.

Finally, Sen. Cruz acknowledged just how out-of-control this healthcare debacle has become.

CRUZ: And the fact that this body is so torn apart by the notion that each of us would be subject to ObamaCare, subject to the same rules the American people are, it just highlights how broken Washington is.

“Do you see a hair out of place on Ted Cruz? The guy is audio animatronics. He is audio animatronics. Look at him,” Glenn said. “That guy is amazing.”

5 SURPRISING ways space tech is used in your daily life

Is your vacuum cleaner from SPACE?

This week, Glenn is discussing his recent purchase of a Sputnik satellite, which has got many of us thinking about space and space technology. More specifically, we've been wondering how technology initially designed for use outside Earth's atmosphere impacted our lives down here on terra firma. The U.S. spent approximately $30 billion ($110 billion in today's money) between the Soviet launch of Sputnik in 1957 and the Moon Landing in 1969. What do we have to show for it besides some moon rocks?

As it turns out, a LOT of tech originally developed for space missions has made its way into products that most people use every day. From memory foam to cordless vacuums here are 5 pieces of space tech that you use every day:

Cellphone camera

Have you ever seen a photograph of an early camera, the big ones with the tripod and curtain, and wondered how we went from that to the tiny little cameras that fit inside your cellphone? Thank NASA for that brilliant innovation. When you are launching a spaceship or satellite out of the atmosphere, the space onboard comes at a premium. In order to make more room for other equipment, NASA wanted smaller, lighter cameras without compromising image quality, and the innovations made to accomplish this goal paved the way for the cameras in your phone.

Cordless vacuums and power tools

When exploring the moon, NASA wanted astronauts to use a drill to collect samples from the lunar surface. The problem: the moon has a severe lack of electrical outlets to power the drills. NASA tasked Black & Decker with developing a battery-powered motor powerful enough to take chunks out of the moon. The resulting motor was later adapted to power cordless power tools and vacuums in households across America.

What do distant stars and planets have in common with your eardrum? Both have their temperature read by the same infrared technology. The thermometers that can be found in medicine cabinets and doctors' offices across the world can trace their origins back to the astronomers at NASA who came up with the idea to measure the temperature of distant objects by the infrared light they emit.

This one may seem obvious, but sometimes you need a massively complicated problem to come up with simple solutions. During the Space Shuttle program, NASA had a big problem: hydroplaning. Hydroplaning is dangerous enough when you are going 70 miles an hour in your car, but when you're talking about a Space Shuttle landing at about 215 miles per hour, it's an entirely different animal. So what was NASA's space-age solution? Cutting grooves in the pavement to quickly divert water off the runway, a practice now common on many highways across the world.

Memory foam

If you've ever slept on a memory foam mattress, it probably won't come as a shock to find out that the foam was created to cushion falls from orbit. Charles Yotes was an astronautical engineer who is credited with the invention of memory foam. Yotes developed the technology for the foam while working on the recovery system for the Apollo command module. The foam was originally designed to help cushion the astronauts and their equipment during their descent from space. Now, the space foam is used to create some of the most comfortable mattresses on Earth. Far out.

5 most HORRIFIC practices condoned by WPATH

Whatever you know about the "trans movement" is only the tip of the iceberg.

In a recent Glenn TV special, Glenn delved into Michael Schellenberger's "WPATH files," a collection of leaked internal communications from within the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). Glenn's research team got their hands on the WPATH files and compiled the highlights in Glenn's exclusive PDF guide which can be downloaded here. These documents reveal the appalling "standards" created and upheld by WPATH, which appear to be designed to allow radical progressive surgeons to perform bizarre, experimental, and mutilating surgeries on the dime of insurance companies rather than to protect the health and well-being of their patients. These disturbing procedures are justified in the name of "gender-affirming care" and are defended zealously as "life-saving" by the dogmatic surgeons who perform them.

The communications leaked by Schellenberger reveal one horrific procedure after another committed in the name of and defended by radical gender ideology and WPATH fanatics. Here are five of the most horrifying practices condoned by WPATH members:

1.Trans surgeries on minors as young as 14

One particular conversation was initiated by a doctor asking for advice on performing irreversible male-to-female surgery on a 14-year-old boy's genitals. WPATH doctors chimed in encouraging the surgery. One doctor, Dr. McGinn, confessed that he had performed 20 such surgeries on minors over the last 17 years!

2.Amputation of healthy, normal limbs

BIID, or Body Integrity Identity Disorder, is an “extremely rare phenomenon of persons who desire the amputation of one or more healthy limbs or who desire a paralysis.” As you might suspect, some WPATH members are in favor of enabling this destructive behavior. One WPATH commenter suggested that people suffering from BIID received "hostile" treatment from the medical community, many of whom would recommend psychiatric care over amputation. Apparently, telling people not to chop off perfectly healthy limbs is now considered "violence."

3.Trans surgeries on patients with severe mental illnesses

WPATH claims to operate off of a principle known as "informed consent," which requires doctors to inform patients of the risks associated with a procedure. It also requires patients be in a clear state of mind to comprehend those risks. However, this rule is taken very lightly among many WPATH members. When one of the so-called "gender experts" asked about the ethicality of giving hormones to a patient already diagnosed with several major mental illnesses, they were met with a tidal wave of backlash from their "enlightened" colleges.

4.Non-standard procedures, such as “nullification” and other experimental, abominable surgeries

If you have never heard of "nullification" until now, consider yourself lucky. Nullification is the removal of all genitals, intending to create a sort of genderless person, or a eunuch. But that's just the beginning. Some WPATH doctors admitted in these chatlogs that they weren't afraid to get... creative. They seemed willing to create "custom" genitals for these people that combine elements of the two natural options.

5.Experimental, untested, un-researched, use of carcinogenic drugs 

Finasteride is a drug used to treat BPH, a prostate condition, and is known to increase the risk of high-grade prostate cancer as well as breast cancer. Why is this relevant? When a WPATH doctor asked if anyone had used Finasteride "to prevent bottom growth," which refers to the healthy development of genitals during puberty. The answer from the community was, "That's a neat idea, someone should give it a go."

If your state isn’t on this list, it begs the question... why?

The 2020 election exposed a wide range of questionable practices, much of which Glenn covered in a recent TV special. A particularly sinister practice is the use of private money to fund the election. This money came from a slew of partisan private sources, including Mark Zuckerberg, entailed a host of caveats and conditions and were targeted at big city election offices— predominantly democratic areas. The intention is clear: this private money was being used to target Democrat voters and to facilitate their election process over their Republican counterparts.

The use of private funds poses a major flaw in the integrity of our election, one which many states recognized and corrected after the 2020 election. This begs the question: why haven't all states banned private funding in elections? Why do they need private funding? Why don't they care about the strings attached?

Below is the list of all 28 states that have banned private funding in elections. If you don't see your state on this list, it's time to call your state's election board and demand reform.

POLL: Was Malaysia Flight 370 taken by a WORMHOLE?

NurPhoto / Contributor | Getty Images

It's hard to know what's real and what's fake anymore.

With the insanity that seems to grow every day, it is becoming more and more difficult to tell what's true and what's not, what to believe, and what to reject. Anything seems possible.

That's why Glenn had Ashton Forbes on his show, to explore the fringe what most people would consider impossible. Forbes brought Glenn a fascinating but far-out theory that explains the decade-old disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 along with riveting footage that supposedly corroborates his story. Like something out of a sci-fi novel, Forbes made the startling claim that Flight 370 was TELEPORTED via a U.S. military-made wormhole! As crazy as that sounds, the video footage along with Forbes' scientific research made an interesting, if not compelling case.

But what do you think? Do you believe that the U.S. Government can create wormholes? Did they use one to abduct Flight 370? Is the government hiding futuristic tech from the rest of the world? Let us know in the poll below:

Does the military have the capability to create wormholes?

Is the U.S. military somehow responsible for what happened to Malaysia Flight 370?

Is the military in possession of technology beyond what we believe to be possible?

Do you think American military tech is ahead of the other superpowers?

Do you think there would be negative consequences if secret government technology was leaked?
