Here's the best business advice that Glenn can offer

Question: When did you know in business that you were doing the right thing?

Glenn: Never. Here’s the thing, I think, and feel free to correct me if anybody else has a better answer than this, because I really am bluffing. The only time I’ve ever known anything…well, I shouldn’t say this. There’s been about four times in my life that I’ve really, truly known. I was seven, and I heard clear as a bell, “What you do in life at some point will be a turning point. That’s all I heard. I don’t know, I’m seven, I don’t even know what that means.

That actually led, played a big role in my alcoholism, because every time I would think that I’m on the verge of something, somebody else would beat me to it, and I’d be like, “What the…? Why am I always behind?” I’m always behind. It wasn’t until the 90s that I just let go and said I don’t really care. I think that’s probably a childhood little thing, and it took me until about 2005 when I’m on the cover of TIME magazine that I’m like oh my gosh, oh my gosh. I wasn’t trying to do anything anymore. I was trying to find it before. You know what I mean? And so I was screwing it up.

Once I let go, and I’m just like I’m just going to be, I’m just going to do today what I think is right…there’s been about four times in my life where I felt like I’ve had that this you must do, but I never know how to do them, ever. I usually don’t even know exactly what they mean, and it can really screw me up. Beyond that, every time I second-guess myself, I screw it up. Your first thought is usually the right one. The first thought is you know what we should do, we should do this.

Now, things around that might change. We’re working on this amazing thing that we’re hopefully going to announce this summer. We’re going to start a tradition 15 months from now for Fourth of Julys, because I think we need to do Fourth of July right. I’ve tried to do it all over the country. I’ve tried to play, you know, in everybody else’s sandbox. Nobody cares about the traditions of America anymore. It’s all about hot dogs and fireworks and country music bands. That’s not Independence Day. That may be Fourth of July, but it’s not Independence Day.

We came up with this idea, and our first name for it is the Campfire. That sucks. That’s what I think it should be, the Campfire. That’s going to change, but all of the stuff that’s at the heart of it is not going to change, okay? So, you have to have confidence enough in yourself to say you know what, I’m just settled enough that I’m comfortable enough to say I’m good failing with this, I’m good. I’ll fail, but I’m going to do this because it feels right to me, and then just hold on, just hold on, because it’s a scary ride, and every step of the way you’ll question yourself.

I do today. I did this week. Four or five times this week I said you know what, maybe we shouldn’t have done any of this. Maybe we shouldn’t have done any of this. Maybe it’s just me in my head thinking we should. Let it go. Let it go. Wherever you end up is right where you’re supposed to be, and once you say I could lose it all…my kids asked me one time, “Dad, why do you say enjoy it while it lasts?” Well, because in my 20s, I thought it would always go on, and I lost everything. When I didn’t have it anymore, I realized wow, I’m happy without it. It doesn’t matter.

But while you have it, enjoy it, and once you really let go and say I don’t really care, I will live under a bridge because I know I’ll be happy, one way or another I’ll be happy, and it will be exactly where I’m supposed to be, everything works out. It all works out.

We finally have an answer to the long-awaited question of who Trump will pick for his running mate, and it's none other than Ohio Senator and friend of the show, J.D. Vance. At the RNC in Milwaukee, Trump officially accepted the party's nomination as the Republican candidate and announced J.D. Vance as his running mate.

Glenn has had Senator Vance on the show several times to discuss everything from DEI to the Southern Border. If you are looking to familiarize yourself with the next potential Vice President, look no further, here are five conversations Glenn had with Trump's VP pick:

How RFK's example can help our nation in the wake of Trump's attack

How did you feel last Saturday when you heard the news that a former president of the United States narrowly avoided an assassin's bullet by a mere few inches? Were you angry at the media for their constant demonization of Trump and his conservative contingency? Did you blame the left for curating a political climate that fostered an assassination attempt?

In his immediate reaction to the news, Glenn pointed us back to a similar moment in American history: April 4th, 1968—the day Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated.

"The best speech I've ever heard given was by RFK Sr. on the day Martin Luther King was killed" - Glenn

Robert F. Kennedy, the father of current independent presidential candidate RFK Jr., was en route to Indianapolis when he heard the terrible news. His security team, expecting violent outrage across the country, asked RFK Sr. to turn around and head back to safety. But as Glenn said, RFK Sr. believed in the good in people and demanded to give his speech. He arrived in Indianapolis Park late in the day, and he addressed the crowd of predominantly black campaign supporters.

There were no riots in Indianapolis that night.

The message RFK Sr. gave that night wasn't one of vengeance, hatred, or hopelessness, but of calm and goodness. He appealed to the best in people. He called for people to set aside their differences, anger, fear, and confusion and instead express love and compassion towards one another. RFK Sr. asked for wisdom and the pursuit of justice so that we might be resolute in our unity as the country faces another difficult chapter.

What we need in this country is love and wisdom and compassion toward one another.

Glenn has made a similar plea to our nation—a plea for unity and not to lash out in fear and anger. Don't use this time to blame your friends and family who disagree with you politically for what happened or to tell them "I told you so!" Instead, reach out with compassion and grace. This is a turning point in American history. Let's turn it upward, away from hatred and violence and towards unison and compassion.

Fortunately, President Trump walked away from his attempted assassination with very minor injuries. The bullet that wounded Trump's ear could have just as easily ended his life, and his survival is nothing short of a miracle.

Sadly, that miracle didn't extend to everyone attending Trump's ill-fated Pennsylvania rally. Three other people were shot. David Dutch and James Copenhaver, both Pennslyavia residents, are thankfully in stable condition. Corey Comperatore, however, tragically died after being shot while protecting his wife and daughter from the hail of gunfire.

“Corey died a hero."

Camperatore, a 50-year-old loving father and husband from Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania leaves behind his daughter Allyson, his wife Helen, sister Dawn, and many other friends and family. Camperatore was a man of service, having spent 43 years as part of the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company and had worked his way to becoming the fire chief when he stepped down to spend more time with his daughter.

Corey's friends and family have nothing but good things to say about him, and judging by their testimonies, Corey's final heroic act was consistent with how the volunteer firefighter lived his life.

According to many people who knew Compertore, he was a true patriot who loved his country. He was a fan of President Trump. Compertore was very excited to attend Saturday's rally, which he expressed in his last social media post.


During his speech addressing the shooting, President Biden expressed his condolences to the Comperatore family, stating that "He was a father. He was protecting his family from the bullets that were being fired.”

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:
