Glenn: Anyone who is rational knows violence is coming

In Thursday's Daily Briefing, Glenn and his team spoke about growing angst among the American people. Running through the various socio-economic and age demographics, Americans of all ages are facing major obstacles that are increasingly difficult to overcome.

- Recent college graduates are having trouble finding well-paying jobs and are saddled with debt.

- Hard-working families are struggling with rising food and energy prices.

- An increasingly large number of middle aged Americans are finding themselves out of work suddenly and collecting unemployment.

- Our servicemen and women are not receiving the care they need and deserve as the VA medical facilities are bogged down in bureaucracy and corruption.

- Finally, the over-60 crowd have been assured their entire lives Social Security and Medicare would be there for them, but that is simply not the case.

So what comes next? Glenn painted a bleak picture of the future.

Below is a partial transcript of the segment:

I thought about this last night, a house divided against itself cannot stand. We all know that. The president who said it, I mean, it was originally Jesus, but in America, the president who said it was Abraham Lincoln. That’s Abraham Lincoln saying we’ve got to come together. This administration knows a house divided against itself cannot stand. Good, let’s divide them. What president has ever done that?

That’s why it’s important for us to reach out to the others, the same thing that the president should be doing, the same thing a rational president would do. Remember, the radicals are in charge, and so the radicals are the ones saying divide, divide, divide, divide. The average person, the one that we used to think Democrats were, all the radicals are there, and they’re also in the universities. But generally speaking, our friends who vote differently than us are not radicals.

A house divided against itself cannot stand. You know that, brother. You know that. So let’s forget about the president and everything else. We’ve got trouble. Forget about the things we disagree on, where can we unite? Because we’ve got to come back together. It’s that easy. And the choice is that clear. Continue to divide, which will lead to hatred and destruction. I mean, I want you to think about this, anybody, anybody who is rational knows that violence is coming, and here’s why: Teenagers, 50% unemployment.

They’re trying to get employed, they cannot get employed, so I’m going to do what? I’m going to go to college. I go to college, I’ve done everything I’m supposed to. I go to college, I get my degree. You get your four-year degree, how many of them are staying in longer because there’s still no job for them? So I’ll stay in longer. I’ll take in more debt. You’re leaving, and you have $100,000 in debt, and you’re getting a $30,000 job.

Wait a minute, wait a minute, I did everything. You gave me trophies. You told me that all I have to do is just show up. That’s the generation that is coming out right now, the ones that we had the progressives tell us give them trophies, tell them they’re special, tell them if you just do this, you’ll get the corner office, you don’t really have to earn it. Those are the people coming out.

So we either have those who are still like going I didn’t earn that trophy, and that was a bunch of hogwash. And I know that, but still, now, I’ve got $100,000 in debt. And there’s no way to pay it off, and the United States government tells me it’s the only debt I cannot declare bankruptcy on. So the government has you. There’s no way out of that.

So you’ve got that. Then you have the people who are in their 30s who are now starting to raise children, and here comes your inflation. And your food prices are going up, and your electricity prices are necessarily skyrocketing. And you can’t afford your gas. And your boss is now cutting your insurance because you don’t have insurance. And your kids are sick. And you’re now being shoved into something like the VA. You don’t think they’re pissed?

Then you’ve got this other section about 50 that now is losing their job, and they’ve been getting unemployment for 99 weeks, 120 weeks, 1,000 weeks, and they’re being lied to. Everybody’s being lied to. The kids are being lied to – don’t worry, just go to college; don’t worry, just take out an extra loan and stay longer; oh, don’t worry about it, you’ll get a job here some way or another; then oh, you’ll be able to keep your health insurance if you like your health insurance; and don’t worry, your job is safe; and don’t worry, inflation isn’t coming. You see all the lies that are happening?

Fifty years old, you get unemployed, there’s no work for you. I’ve worked my whole life. Now, my job is gone, and you’re not bringing jobs back. You’re now talking about cutting my hours to 20 hours a week, full-time jobs. Why are they doing that? So people can be employed. Those jobs are not coming back. The world is changing.

You’re 50, they’re not coming back, and so okay, well, I’m not going to just sit around. I’m going to do something about it, I’m going to become an entrepreneur. No, you’re not, because the government is going to put their thumb on you to make sure that you can’t be an entrepreneur and a businessman.

And then you have the last group. You have the people who have been lied to their whole life – don’t worry, Social Security is safe, we’ve got it in a lockbox; don’t worry, I know you’ve saved your whole life, and you’ve paid into Social Security. The Social Security system is not going to be there, and even if it is there, what does that money mean when you’ve inflated the money, and it won’t pay for anything?

You think there’s not violence coming? We’ve lied to every age group. Every single American has been lied to and betrayed, and then you have a president on top of it who’s saying yeah, I’m going to call the guy who got our soldiers killed a hero, I’m going to release the guys you and I know are trying to kill Americans, oh, and I’m going to lie about it. I’m going to have everybody else lie about it, and I’m going to look at all of you people as the bad guys. These guys are good. You guys, I’ve got to spy on you.

Oh my gosh, it is up to us as individual Americans all across America to (a) tell the truth, (b) stop dividing people. Start finding the things you can agree on. Take care of the things you can agree on. Most importantly, feed yourself something good, feed yourself something good. We spend all day putting in the wash and the filth of the world. You’re not going to stand.

We have to build our bodies back up by being part of a culture that loves, that cares, is charitable, is truthful, is honest, loves one another, takes care of one another, does everything we can for one another. That’s what we have to try to do and still keep our head above water, because soon there are going to be coming people, and panicked people push strong swimmers underwater. They’re just trying to stay alive. We can do it. We just have to change our thinking.

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.

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.

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.
