'Ready, Set, Go!': Why Glenn thinks it is time to change the world

Today on radio, Glenn dedicated a lot of time updating the radio audience on the information he shared in TheBlaze TV special "The Root: Red Storm". But he took some time out of the teaching portion of the show to address the important issue of why. Why is Glenn spending so much time on this story? Why is he ringing the bell? After all, he's said time and again that he wants to stop being the "warning guy" and really focus on being the "inspiration guy". But today he discussed why the time is running short for people to wake up and prepare - and what comes next.

"You know, I don't want to be this guy, and as the guys will tell you, we're working hard here because I don't want to be this guy. I don't want to be the warning guy anymore. I'm tired of it. But I -- I am the warning guy. So I have to tell you. And I know I'm gonna get hammered for this just like we did with everything else," Glenn said.

"I want you to listen carefully to me. I have been telling you for a long time, fascism will start to rise, the old hatred will start to rise. And you have seen that."

"I also said fascism would start with the Jews, but then because of the immigration laws over in Europe, and because of the way the Muslims are surrounding the cities and choking them, these fascists, if you don't start acting reasonably now, these fascists will take an event and they will use it and they will use it to expand. What is happening? It's all this is happening. Now, this is what I want to say to you. I told you last year, I kept hearing, and so it begins."

"Let me take this down to a more base level. I believe the Charlie Hebdo incident has -- is more of this. When I say and so it begins, what I meant was, oh, my gosh, here it comes. Here it comes. Here it comes. It's starting. Look it, this piece is going to grow and that piece is going to grow. What happened in France, if you are standing at a starting line and you're going to be in a race, you will always hear, ready, set, bang. I believe that we are -- last year was the ready. I believe the Charlie Hebdo was the set. And I think the go is coming. And it's coming soon."

"If you believe that you can stand around and just not be plugged in to what the world is doing. And pay attention to what's going on. And be disconnected from your faith and your principles, when that starting gun fires and it's going to fire soon, it's going to be too late. I -- I warn you and I beg you with everything in me to hear me, please hear me. The world is on the precipice of fascism, communism, anarchy, and theological nightmares. Nightmares. And it's spreading everywhere."

"What we brought on the last two nights and tonight is the last episode TheBlazeTV, is the Red Storm Rising. And I know people will want to dismiss it and they will want to say it's no big deal."

Glenn ran through the threat the Dugin presents to the West, but concluded the segment on a hopeful note.

"Don't run to a gun.  Run to love.  Run to the Lord.  Don't run to a gun.  Run to a charity.  Run to each other.  Don't -- don't.  Stand for what you believe.  But do it in love and peace and harmony," he said.

" I have said this from the beginning.  And it's about go time, gang.  And I can't believe I'm saying this.  But it's almost go time.  I don't know when this happens.  All of these -- all of this hatred, all of the fires in the streets and the killing of the cops here in America and the gunning down of people here in America and in France and all over the world, in Asia, all of this has happened without a depression.  We still can eat.  We still -- we still have the semblance of our life.  We haven't hit -- we don't even understand this.  We don't understand what the Great Depression was like.  People didn't have food.  They didn't have shoes.  They didn't have money.  They had nothing.  We're not used to that.  We've never seen that.  When we and the rest of the world start to go into a real economic collapse, God help us all.  And I really -- I've said this from the beginning.  This audience is going to be the audience that changes the world.  I'm begging you.  I'm begging you.  I don't know how to do it.  But somebody within the sound of my voices does.  I'm begging you, change the world.  Change your life.  I'm begging you.  Ready, set."

TRUMP: The twilight hour of socialism has arrived

The other day, at Florida International University in Miami, facing large American and Venezuelan flags, President Trump gave a rousing speech in Miami, including this line, the "twilight hour of socialism has arrived."

Trump went on to say:

Socialism is about one thing only—power for the ruling class. They want the power to decide who wins and who loses, who's up and who's down…and even who lives and who dies.

He then repeated a phrase that helped define his State of the Union address this year:

America will never be a socialist country.

Fittingly, Fox News posted an article yesterday exposing the overlooked evils of Che dangers of socialism that all too often disappear behind a flashy design on a t-shirt.

  1. Guevara said he killed people without regard to guilt or innocence. In an interview, Guevara said, "in times of excessive tension we cannot proceed weakly. At the Sierra Maestra, we executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation; it has the obligation to triumph."
  2. Humberto Fontova, author of "Exposing the Real Che Guevara," told Fox that Guevara created system that put gay people in labor camps. "The regime that Che Guevara co-founded is the only one in modern history in the Western Hemisphere to have herded gays into forced labor camps."
  3. Guevara opposed a free press: "In 1959, leftist journalist José Pardo Llada reported that Guevara told him: 'We must eliminate all newspapers; we cannot make a revolution with free press. Newspapers are instruments of the oligarchy.'"
  4. Guevara made racist statements: Guevara went on to write: "the black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving."

These are just some of the many historical examples of the failure of socialism. President Trump is right. If the frivolities of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Saunders catch on and spread, we could have an unbelievable problem on our hands.

Poor Jussie: His narrative is falling apart completely

Here's how the media works now: Find a story that confirms their narrative, run it constantly and relentlessly. When the real story comes out, minimize exposure of the correction. Repeat.

We're seeing this pattern play out over and over again.

Here are some of the knee-jerk reactions that the media had to this Jessie Smollett hoax, from Insider Edition, CNN, E! News, Headline News, CNBC, TMZ, to name a few:

Montage: Watch the Media Uncritically Accept Another Outlandish 'Hate Crime' youtu.be

And those are just the reactions on TV. It was just as bad, at times worse, in print and online. I'll give you one special example, however. Because, you know the situation is bad when TMZ is connecting the dots and seeing through this guy's story:

The sources say there were red flags from the get go. Cops were extremely suspicious when Jussie took them out to the area where he said he was attacked and pointed to an obscure camera saying how happy he was that the attack was on video. Turns out the camera was pointing in the wrong direction. Cops thought it was weird he knew the location of that camera. And there's this. We're told investigators didn't believe the 2 alleged attackers screamed 'This is MAGA country' because 'Not a single Trump supporter watches 'Empire.''

Here's the man himself, in an interview just days after the alleged beating…I'm sorry, the alleged "modern day lynching." Here he is in an interview with ABC News, complaining about people making up stuff:

Strong words, spoken by a man who, allegedly, created the whole narrative to begin with.

This compromise is an abomination

Zach Gibson/Getty Images

Three decades ago, "The Art of the Deal" made Donald Trump a household name. A lot has happened since then. But you can trace many of Trump's actions back to that book.

Art of the Deal:

In the end, you're measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish.

People laughed when he announced that he was running for President. And I mean that literally. Remember the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner when Obama roasted Trump, viciously, mocking the very idea that Trump could ever be President. Now, he's President.

You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.

This empire-building is a mark of Trump.

The most recent example is the border wall. Yesterday, congress reached a compromise on funding for the border wall. Weeks of tense back-and-forth built up to that moment. At times, it seemed like neither side would budge. Trump stuck to his guns, the government shut down, Trump refused to budge, then, miraculously, the lights came back on again. The result was a compromise. Or at least that's how it appeared.

But really, Trump got what he wanted -- exactly what he wanted. He used the techniques he wrote about in The Art of the Deal:

My style of deal-making is quite simple and straightforward. I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I'm after.

From the start, he demanded $5.7 billion for construction of a border wall. It was a months' long tug-of-war that eventually resulted in yesterday's legislation, which would dedicate $1.4 billion. It would appear that that was what he was after all along. Moments before the vote, he did some last-minute pushing. A national emergency declaration, and suddenly the number is $8 billion.

Art of the Deal:

People think I'm a gambler. I've never gambled in my life. To me, a gambler is someone who plays slot machines. I prefer to own slot machines. It's a very good business being the house.

In a rare show of bipartisanship, Senate passed the legislation 83-16, and the House followed with 300-128. Today, Trump will sign the bill.

It's not even fair to call that a deal, really. A deal is what happens when you go to a car dealership, fully ready to buy a car, and the salesman says the right things. What Trump did is more like a car dealer selling an entire row of cars to someone who doesn't even have a licence. When Trump started, Democrats wouldn't even consider a wall, let alone pay for it.

Art of the Deal:

The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people's fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration—and a very effective form of promotion.

He started the wall on a chant, "Build the wall!" until he got what he wanted. He maneuvered like Don Draper, selling people something that they didn't even know they wanted, and convincing them that it is exactly what they've always needed.
