Sean Hannity talks to Glenn about who he likes in 2016 and his ‘conservative solutions’

Sean Hannity joined Glenn on radio this morning for a wide-ranging interview on the state of politics and political discourse in America today. From who he likes in 2016 to the common sense ‘conservative solutions’ he has laid out, Glenn and Sean found they are “on the same page” on some of the most important issues.

It is no secret Glenn is a big fan of Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Sean is as well. When it comes to 2016, however, strategy will play a key role, and the senators could not be more different.

“So let me talk to you about Rand Paul and Ted Cruz because everybody says to me, ‘Which one do you like?’ And my response is ‘Both,’” Glenn said. “But they have different strategies… Which one do you think has the better strategy? The one that's going kind of the traditional way that might pull some more middle ground, or the guy who's just saying this is wrong and I'm standing against it?”

“It's too early to tell. I'm not convinced Cruz is in yet. I am convinced that Rand is in,” Sean said. “Ted Cruz… [is] the one that kept his promise and he's the bad guy. So I admire him just for the fact that he's standing on his principles. You know, he's got a problem because I think they are trying to do to him what they did to Governor Palin, what they've done to you and Rush and talk radio in general. I think they want to smear, slander, besmirch, attack, demonize.”

If the choice was between Sens. Paul and Cruz, Sean was more willing to commit:

GLENN: The candidate: It would be between Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.

SEAN: Ted Cruz.

GLENN: And I don't know.

SEAN: We're on the same page.

GLENN: Yeah, it's one of those two.

SEAN: Yeah.

Ultimately, Sean is interested in getting a conservative-minded person into office who will stand for smaller government and personal responsibility.

“The American people have to decide this: Are they willing to accept an America where 15 million Americans are on food stamps, the labor participation rate's the lowest since 1978, one in five American children are in poverty, one in six adults are in poverty? Are they willing to accept more of that, or are they now open to the idea that we've gone in the wrong direction and America needs conservative solutions to change,” Sean asked. “I've often heard you say on your show it's not about left or right; it's about right and wrong. I would argue that conservative principles are the right ones that will work, if applied.”

On his radio program, Sean is working on finding and implementing the common sense solutions that will help get this country back on track. His Conservative Solutions Caucus 2014 lays out a pretty straightforward plan.

The crux of Sean’s plan involves cutting one penny of every dollar the government spends for six years (at which point you actually balance the budget) and focusing on energy independence.

“If you did, Glenn, those two things: If we tapped into our energy resources and we cut one penny out of every dollar, we'd save Social Security, we'd pay down the deficit, we'd stop robbing from our kids,” Sean said. “You hear these stories about these Sheiks that get on these Boeings 767s and they fly to the United States and they buy up every store and they take all the crap back because they can't buy it in their countries. Every American would be that wealthy. There would be no need for any social safety net except for those that are truly needy, and we'd have more money to take better care of them.”

So why aren't we doing it?

“Because the Republican Party is uninspiring. They are timid and afraid of their own shadow,” he concluded. “And like the Democrats, they seem most concerned about one thing and one thing only and that's their own political power.”

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.

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.
