Glenn: All right, I want to bring a longtime friend onto the program, Jim Cramer. He’s the host of CNBC’s Mad Money, author of a new book Get Rich Carefully. Jim, welcome to the program.

Jim: Glenn, great to see you. Thank you for support all the years.

Glenn: You pioneered a lot of stuff that I watch.

Jim: You took it to where we should all go.

Glenn: You have a new book, Get Rich Carefully, and I want to talk about you’ve got seven things. I put them up on the chalkboard, seven things. I’m not comfortable talking to you without pacing.

Jim: Yeah, I mean, what are we doing? Let’s get our hands dirty.

Glenn: You talk about getting rich. I am concerned that we have printed so much money that the stock market’s bogus. It doesn’t mean anything anymore.

Jim: You know, that’s why I’ve always told people, put some in gold, please. Put some in gold. I believe in it. I have some. It’s the antidote to the currency. And when people say, you know, when I say put some in gold, people think he’s a gold bug. I am a believer that gold will retain its value, and so therefore everyone should have a good percentage.

Glenn: Right. Nobody should put everything in anything.

Jim: No, but I think that that’s the antidote, because I think, look, our grandchildren are going to be looking at this deficit and saying why didn’t dad buy some gold?

Glenn: We have $17 trillion in debt. At some point we have $40 trillion in debt, and the only thing that’s going to be worth anything is an asset, which brings me to number seven on your list. What is this list?

Jim: Okay, these are the big themes that are going to last far more than let’s just say far more than next year or next five years, probably ten years. The one I’m most proud of is the one that is most…it is still hard to find people who believe with me we are in an oil and gas revolution in this country. Because of American technology, we have found oil where we thought there wasn’t any, and this is our chance for greatness. It’s our chance for more jobs. It’s actually our chance for ascendancy back.

Glenn: Yeah, it’s our chance of survival, because if we don’t take it out of the ground, we have $40 trillion in debt at some point. China or whoever else is just going to say you know what guys, pay up. You’ve got nothing, and they’ll just take it.

Jim: Our trade deficit which is something that’s hurt all our workers in this country, right? I don’t want to say it gets 100% cured because we still take a lot of product from countries that won’t buy our products. Those are products of bad trade deals that we’ve made, but oil and gas is something that, it’s tangible. It creates jobs. The Keystone pipeline would create more jobs than any one project, but most importantly Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Montana, Colorado, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Ohio, wherever there’s fracking, there’s jobs.

Glenn: Pennsylvania and Ohio, think of that, it’s dying. Upstate New York, Kodak is a ghost town. All of that stuff is a ghost town, and you drive through upstate New York, and it’s nothing but anti-fracking nonsense.

Jim: The southern tier is filled with natural gas. The southern tier is probably one of the highest unemployment areas in our country, and this state, unlike Pennsylvania, this state doesn’t understand those are actually good jobs, especially pipeline jobs. You know that’s high-paying jobs for people who may not have graduated college. Is that okay to help them? You can even get, you know, truck drivers, you’re making $90,000 a year in North Dakota. We just don’t have enough people there.

Glenn: Okay, come here and talk to me about some of these. Okay, so we have oil and gas. Let’s go stealth tech. What is stealth tech?

Jim: Okay, stealth tech, we have a lot of companies, we think about personal computers, really haven’t done that much. Where I’m saying the real technology is being done in companies like Colgate. Now, I know that sounds boring.

Glenn: The toothpaste people?

Jim: Yes, but we have taken back huge amounts of the emerging world with our own technology making the best toothpaste much cheaper. You know, we should not minimize this. These are scientists from our countries doing good things. The one that is my favorite is actually Under Armour.

Glenn: Hold on just a second. You’re actually telling me that toothpaste may be something that we’re turning the country around with?

Jim: No, but at least we’re taking back some jobs from some foreign companies.

Glenn: We’re down to toothpaste, America.

Jim: I want to celebrate some of our ingenuity.

Glenn: No, I appreciate that, but it’s sad. It’s toothpaste.

Jim: No, we’re just not as bad as we think we are. That’s how I like to feel about us.

Glenn: Okay, so Under Armour, because you’re saying stealth tech because I don’t think of Under Armour as technology.

Jim: Well, I mean because they develop product that keeps you cool when it’s hot and keeps you warm when it’s cold, and that’s this guy, Kevin Plank, who’s really a great American. People don’t talk enough about him. He calls himself the world’s sweatiest man when he comes on Mad Money. He just decided you know what, I have to infuse apparel with technology in order to be able to take on a Nike, which is also a great American company that has terrific technology.

Glenn: Okay let’s go to number three, make money work in the new frugal environment.

Jim: When my father and his parents got out of the Depression, they never spent again the way that they did before that, okay? We have come out of a horrendous recession, not strongly enough, but we’ve come out. Well, we turned more frugal. I shop at TJ Maxx, which is very good. I belong to Costco. I like to shop there. Yeah, I like to buy the store brand. You know, I would go to Rite Aid, and I buy everything that’s Rite Aid. I don’t need to buy the fancy stuff.

Glenn: You don’t need to buy something from Colgate?

Jim: Well, I mean, they have good technology, but –

Glenn: Okay.

Jim: But I just think that we’re smarter about shopping.

Glenn: And that’s because, I mean, do you buy into, I looked through your book, and I’m looking at the pages in the book and the charts. And I’m like I don’t understand any of those charts. But do you look at the charts, as a guy who doesn’t understand all that stuff, I look at bad news, bad news, bad news, stock market up, and say there’s something wrong. Do you buy into this crap?

Jim: I think that a lot of what happens with the stock market is about profits, and a lot of companies are able to make more money by firing people or moving jobs offshore.

Glenn: But at some point that’s bad.

JimL Well, for societally, unless you can be involved in the stock market, it’s definitely bad because how do a lot of our companies make money? Okay, well they close their factories here and then move them to Mexico. And we have this thing called NAFTA which is universally loved by everybody except for the people who lost their jobs, the millions, and that is the way that companies make more money. I mean look, you build more cars in Mexico, that means you build fewer cars here, okay? And we bring them up. We don’t charge you any tax on that, and that’s how those companies are making more money.

Glenn: Is there any industry that you’re, I mean, there’s so many, and you’ve got to read the book to understand all seven of these, but is there anything, is it number seven? Is there anything that you see on the horizon that you’re like that’s your answer for America?

Jim: I think that when you look at where the natural resources, you know, we are a strong natural resource country. Now we have an anti-fossil fuel government, Republican and Democrat, but you know what, all that means is we export the jobs to countries that pollute far more than we do. And do you think that pollution stays in China? I mean, I’ve seen that map. It’s like, you know, my kids know, it’s like a big, big world. If we are able to exploit our natural resources unfettered in a very smart and reliable way, much better than almost every other country, by the way, then we can become a stronger and a self-sufficient continent.

Glenn: I will tell you that we were just talking about it, and you just said continent. I was just telling you that we were talking beforehand. I never thought that I would hear somebody say you know, Canada has a great government. And then I would go yes, it does. Two places to live, Texas, Canada. The name of the book, Get Rich Carefully by Jim Cramer. Good to see you.

Jim: Thank you, Glenn. Thank you very much.

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

RELATED: Changes in technology can be cause for concern, but THIS is amazing

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.

Here are a few headlines regarding the protests in Israel: 'Global protests grow after Israeli killing of Palestinian demonstrators,' the Guardian. 'Israel kills dozens at Gaza Border,' the New York Times. 'Palestinians mourn dead in Gaza as protests continue,' CNN. 'Over 50 Palestinians in massive protest are killed by Israeli military, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war,' ABC News. 'Gaza begins to bury its dead after deadliest day in years,' BBC.

RELATED: Here's why Israel used lethal force during mass protests in Gaza yesterday

In each, the spoken or unspoken subject of the sentence and villain of the story is Israel. Innocent Palestinians murdered by the cruel Israelis. This is the narrative that the mainstream media has promulgated. Few have mentioned that the majority of the “protestors" that died were members of Hamas, the militant (and highly anti-Semetic) Sunni-Islamist organization that has been labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.

A senior Hamas official told reporters that 50 of the 59 people killed in Monday's protests were members of Hamas, and the remainder were “from the people." So…they were all Hamas.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative. Maybe they think of Palestinians as underdogs and they love a good scrap. Well, they aren't underdogs. But their outburst have been glorified for so long that it's near impossible to disagree with that narrative.
