Let's make sure Washington clearly understands: ‘Without us, they're doomed’

Tomorrow night, President Obama will deliver his sixth State of the Union address. The Constitution says the president "shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient." While the concept may be noble in theory, in reality, the annual address has devolved into nothing more than a campaign stump speech filled with empty promises.

On radio this morning, Glenn previewed President Obama’s remarks. You can guarantee the election-year themes of ‘income inequality’ and ‘change we can believe in’ will be on full display as President Obama promises to level the playing field by taking from the rich and giving to the poor. There is no question Americans are hungry for change, and President Obama will promise to right some of the wrongs and change the course of the country. But as Glenn explained, the change Americans seek can never come from Washington. We the people must be willing to fight for the change we wish to see.

Tomorrow night the President is going to give his State of the Union address before Congress and the American people. Well, actually, let me rephrase that first before we go on. Tomorrow night the President's going to give a campaign speech full of misleading data, some outright lies, some good sounding platitudes, and none of it will mean anything. And instead it will become a circus. And the only ones that will really watch it are those who are part of the circus – the media and those who are somehow or another involved in the parties. I don't think the American people are there anymore.

The President tomorrow will use the Second Amendment again to divide us, to talk about inequality and how the game is rigged and how it is so unfair. He's not going to mention those things like a good education, experience [that] will actually help you find things that are fair – that in the end… kind of equal out. Those with little education and not much experience will learn that those things… are the great equalizers.

But this society now is a society that doesn't like to work, doesn't want to do the hard things. We are being pitted against each other and envy is our real enemy now. But there is some luck involved. Corporate cronyism is a disease that is spreading, but by and large you still reap what you sow in this country. But that's not going to be good enough for the President or, quite honestly, those on the other side of the aisle, either, because they're all there to help you. It doesn't give them power, you see, if they actually tell the truth that you can make it, that this is a country still with the greatest opportunity on planet Earth, but it's fading fast.

So he wants to take from those who are educated, either in school or on their own, who have worked hard for years for the people who have taken risks that are now successful. They want to take it from them and give it to those who didn't do any of those things because, in their world, that is the definition of fairness. In my world that's robbery. But the good news is most Americans won't even watch or listen because it's not the America that we want.

Why have we allowed this to happen and go on year after year after year? Why are we doing that? Why do we just accept it? We've been asleep. Are we still asleep? We've had our heads down and we've become part of the herd instead of being heard. Look at the people around you. Next time you go to the airport, look around you. As people wind through the maze at airport security, heads down, following the winding path, oblivious to what's going on. If somebody in that line looked up and said, "Good morning," would you smile and respond, or would you think that they were some sort of crazy person? "What the hell's wrong with that person?"

Go to New York City and stand by the doors of Grand Central Station in the afternoon as commuters head home and head for their trains, their heads down in a trance, not paying any attention to those around them. What if you stopped somebody on the street or stopped somebody at Grand Central Station and said, "Excuse me, do you know of a good restaurant nearby?" How many would even slow down now…

That's the nation we used to be. And the good news is I think we still have that within our grasp. I think we're starting to realize who we were and what we've allowed ourselves to become, and we don't like what we see and so change is in the air. We want to change it. But know this: The change isn't going to come from the President tomorrow night. The change we actually seek is not coming from anybody who says "Vote for me and I'll change it." Oh, they'll change things, but the change you seek is not coming from Washington. The change will happen when we all start to look up. The change will happen when we take the time to connect with the stranger next to us, or when we take the time to connect to the strange news that we're hearing.

The big bank HSBC has restricted people from taking $10,000 or more out of their bank accounts without a note, I think from their mom, explaining what exactly they're doing with that money. "Why are you taking the money out?" Excuse me. It's my money. I'm taking my money out… The change will come when we stand at the teller of the bank and we look them in the eye and we say, "Excuse me. That's my money. If I want to take it all out, I'm going to take it all out.” "Well, sir, for your own safety, we are concerned when you leave the bank." And I want to take my own out and I walk out into the chat R into the street and I want to throw it out in the air, I have a right to do it. It's my money.

Things will change when we start looking up and connecting, connecting to what is really happening and then connecting with each other. There's a video up on TheBlaze that we watched this weekend… Just the greatest videos. Go watch it… Such a great video of hope. It's a little ripple, one kind moment, one kind gesture that will lead to another. Common sense, common values, common courtesy. And none of these are on display in Washington. So let's display them ourselves. We the people, three words that are self-evident. It's up to us. It always has been up to us. We the people.

Tomorrow night will be about manipulation and power and greed, envy, but we're so much better than that. The greatest presidents we've ever had have always been those presidents that made us want to reach inside of ourself and be better because all of us know we are better than this. We are the people.

I said to my wife, because I've been having some back problems, Pat has been having some back problems. And I said to my wife this weekend, "I am so sick of being sick. I'm so sick of feeling like crap." Don't you feel this way as an American? Aren't you sick of feeling this way? Aren't you sick of being less than we are? I know I'm not the only one. We're so much better than this! And nobody else is going to demand it of us, nor should they demand it. I don't want a president demanding, "Oh, I'll tell you this. You'll not be who you think you are. You're going to be better than…" What? We have to demand it of ourselves. We're awake. Finally we're awake and we're looking up.

The best days of this country, the best days of humankind are still ahead of us, and don't you ever believe otherwise. Don't you ever listen to anybody else tell you differently. Something those who want power, those who want you to consume something, buy something, they will always tell you: Well, you'll be so much better if you have X, Y or Z. Well, I'm a guy who has a lot of stuff for you to buy. I got a lot of books for you to buy. I've got a lot of tickets that I'd like you to buy. I've got a lot of news stories I'd like you to read. I'd like you to go to the advertisers on this radio station and buy some of their stuff if that's what you need. But I'm telling you right now, I don't need you to buy anything. You will not be better if you're listening to this program. You will not be stronger. You don't need me. You need to know the truth, and the truth is you were born with everything that you need. You're smart enough. I'm cobbling the stuff together that we're finding. You can do the same thing. Don't you ever believe anybody who says "Without me, you're nothing. Without this system, you won't be able to make it."

Washington wants you to believe that without them we are doomed. Well, let's flip the tables, shall we? Let's make sure that they clearly understand: "We the people. Without us, they're doomed."

Over the past year or more, Glenn has been focused on exposing the global threat of the Great Reset. As Glenn's listeners are well aware, the Great Reset refers to the agenda proposed by the World Economic Forum in 2020, urging leaders to take advantage of the COVID-19 crisis to restructure the "world order" to bring about a leftist Utopia. A major aspect of this vision is encouraging world leaders to force their people into compliance with climate change agendas and strive towards "zero-net emissions."

This agenda necessarily comes at the expense of YOUR freedom and the livelihoods of millions around the world...and it's closer than you think. Here are five things the government wants to BAN to further its climate agenda.

1. Gas-powered stoves

Glenn recently discussed the ground-breaking proposal from the Biden admin calling for the eventual ban on all gas-powered stoves. Why? The Biden admin cited a "new study" that connects gas stoves to pollution which, allegedly, has been "linked" to asthma in "some" children. However, this study is anything BUT new. The ban on gas-powered stoves has been a goal of the World Economic Forum for over a year.

A World Economic Forum article published on Feb 4, 2022 states:

Gas stoves have been found to be a bigger contributor to the climate crisis than previously believed, as they produce methane even when not in use.

The Biden administration is trying to package the gas-stove ban as a "public health" interest. DON'T FALL FOR IT. The ban on gas-powered stoves has been a part of the World Economic Forum's radical climate agenda for over a year.

2. Gas-powered heating and air conditioning

It comes as no surprise that the Biden administration's proposed ban on gas-powered stoves alludes to a ban on ALL gas-powered appliances. As Glenn pointed out, the proposal says merely having a "gas-powered connection" in your home creates harmful pollutants. Does that mean we have to do away with gas-powered homes altogether? The World Economic Forum says YES.

On April 19, 2022, the World Economic Forum published an article titled, "How electrifying buildings can tackle emissions and improve public health." The article asserts "the need for alternative energy infrastructures are becoming abundantly clear with 30% of emissions in the United States coming from the building sector."

What's the "greener" alternative? Electric "heat pumps." The article applauds leaders who have already mandated the construction of heat pump-powered homes:

Some cities and state governments are enacting laws to speed up the change, including restricting new growth of gas hookups and increasing government incentives to spur adoption. In response to the war in Ukraine, for example, France banned subsidies for new gas hookups and exchanged them for heat pump subsidies. The EU recently announced plans to double the rate of heat pump installations by this winter. And before the war started in Ukraine, New York City became the first city of its size to ban gas hookups in new construction. Now, cities across the United States are following suit with similar legislation.

One of Glenn's predictions for 2022 was that globalist elites would use crises to push their radical climate agenda that infringes on YOUR freedom. He hit the nail right on the head as France and the EU took advantage of the crisis in Ukraine to mandate electrically-heated homes. Glenn also postulated whether people would be unable to sell their homes unless all gas-powered appliances were replaced with electric appliances. This is no longer hypothetical—as detailed in the article noted above, this is already happening in New York, and other left-leaning cities will likely follow suit.

3. Gas-powered cars

Similar to New York's ban on new gas-powered homes, in 2021, California banned the sale of all gas-powered cars by 2035, with Oregon and Washington following suit. In a state already plagued by routine blackouts and brownouts, California will now spend billions in taxpayer dollars to build enough charging stations throughout the state to serve the electric vehicles owned by its 40 MILLION residents. It will not be surprising if the state implements scheduled blackouts in order to ration enough power for vehicles. Drive your EV on Monday, and heat your home on Tuesday. You won't have any choice in the matter—the state will have already mandated it for you.

4. Meat

What else is in your bright, "green future?" Glenn called it...BUGS! In its 2023 Global Risks Report, the World Economic Forum calls for the "transition to net-zero, nature-positive food" to fight "food insecurity." What does that mean? You can expect the crackdown on emissions-producing food like beef, chicken, milk, and eggs, and the introduction of "nature positive" sources of protein, like legumes, soy, and, you guessed it, BUGS—and you won't have any choice in the matter. The Risk Report calls for "radical policy measures" to bring about this food transition.

5. Your FREEDOM

It is clear the World Economic Forum and left-leaning globalist leaders intend to push this agenda regardless of your individual choice. It is one thing to pursue a "green lifestyle" on your own accord. It is another thing altogether to not have meat as an option in the grocery store, being forced to go without heating weekly to ration the power grid, not being able to sell your home because of outdated, "harmful" gas-powered appliances, or not being allowed to sell your car because it's not electric. Is this the future you want to live in?

As Glenn continues to shine light on these issues, there's still hope that we can stop this radical agenda. Vote for people who will stand up to global elites and will protect your freedom above globalist pressures. Support your farmers who are fighting against these green regulations. If we start identifying signs of the Great Reset, we will be better prepared to stop it.

Let me give you something that I think is absolutely amazing. It's about an 11-year-old boy named Jude Kofi. He lives in Colorado with his parents from Ghana and his three other siblings. Jude is autistic with a very special talent. One day, Jude's father heard beautiful piano music coming from his old keyboard. He was astounded to find Jude masterfully playing the piano—without having any lessons.

When the local news picked up his story, a man—a complete stranger—wanted to invest in Jude's talent. If you've wondered where all the good people have gone, listen to this.

One of my favorite bands is Poor Man's Poison. They're from the farmlands of California. The lyrics of their song "Good People" asks the question, "If you could help or walk away, if that choice was up to you, what would you do? What if it were you? Where did all the good people go?"

We keep asking ourselves—at least I do—where are they? Where did all the good people go? It turns out, they're everywhere. We don't see them, because they don't generally make the news. But the good people are around us. That's you. That's me—the people who are looking for a second chance at life, who have the ability to do something.

The stranger who helped Jude Kofi spurs us on to pursue goodness. That guy was a tuner of pianos. His father had just died. He inherited money. He saw Jude's story on the local news and he thought, "This kid has got to have lessons and a piano." So he takes his inheritance from his father, buys the piano, promises to tune it every month for the rest of his life, and helps Jude get piano lessons.

I just want to bring you the news today that the good people are here. We're surrounded by them. The problem is, there's not enough examples that we see on a daily basis, but we should start looking for them. We should start sharing those stories, and we should start recognizing that we have been given the opportunity to help those around us—whatever it is. I wouldn't have thought to give this kid a piano. I'm not a piano tuner. But he did because that's his gift.

You are the good people. Where have you gone? Nowhere. Just a quick reminder to wake up and see the ways you can help all around you.

Washington DC is the LONELIEST city in America!

Glenn ended 2022 talking about the "loneliness epidemic" and its sobering correlation to skyrocketing suicide rates. New Chamber of Commerce data reveal Americans are lonelier than ever—and those living at our nation's capital are the loneliest.

According to the data, there are 36 million Americans living alone, equal to 10 percent of the entire country. When measuring the percentage of U.S. cities whose residents live alone, D.C. ranks the highest. Out of D.C.'s 316,565 residents, nearly HALF of the residents live alone. 48.3 percent of D.C. workers are still working remotely, further isolating its residents from meaningful interactions.

D.C.-commuter city Alexandria ranked third on the list of the U.S.'s top five loneliest cities, while Virginia's capital ranked fourth. St. Louis, Missouri came in second place, and Cincinnati, Ohio was number five. Meanwhile, Fontana, a town in California's San Bernadino Valley, is the least lonely city in America, with only 11 percent of its residents living alone.

This data resonates with Glenn's poignant 2022 message: "We have built a society that does NOT connect." We are in a dangerous situation where our physical isolation is coupled with our digital replacements to meaningful human interaction and relationships. Soberly recounting the 30 percent growth in suicides nationwide in 2022, Glenn said:

We have lost touch with each other, physically, with each other. We thought this would bring us closer, but social media is making us divide ourselves and get further apart from each other. We don't have friends, we have "Facebook friends," we have "likes." Humans need human interaction. Humans need to develop compassion. Humans need positive input.

Even if our current circumstances force us to live alone, it's more important than ever to pursue quality human interactions and cultivate new, meaningful ways to spend our time. Glenn said, "We all should be spending an hour learning something new every day." Glenn said he's going to be learning the piano with his hour. He also encouraged his audience to serve others, pointing to the direct correlation of service and a personal sense of fulfillment. While our digital world steals so much of our time, energy, and joy, we have to "get back to basics" by pursuing things that bring true fulfillment, like quality relationships, hard work, and service.

Glenn just dropped a sneak peek of the beginning stages of his newest painting on Instagram. Titled "We've been here before," the painting depicts the mugshots of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr., comedian Lenny Bruce, and Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. All three men were arrested either for their political views or speech.

No American citizen, no matter their opinion, should be denied their First Amendment right to freedom of speech. As Glenn so aptly wrote, "Jailing people for speech, petition/redress and thought—when will we learn? It was wrong then, it is wrong now ... History repeats itself IF you don’t know it."
