The real truth behind Obama's 62 country anti-ISIS coalition is really, really depressing

ISIS has been pretty busy lately…

“ISIS' explosive expansion”

“ISIS' threats, Americans' fears growing”

“Islamic State is 'most potent threat to the world since Third Reich' says Nobel Prize winner”

That’s funny, I also think Glenn Beck said that…years ago. But he doesn’t have a Nobel Prize.

Can you imagine the damage ISIS could do if they were the Varsity team? Thank goodness they’re only the JV team.

But we really shouldn’t be worried.

John Kerry and his friends have gotten together to come up with a solution: A “core coalition” to stop ISIS.

It is interesting that our Secretary of State made a point to say that the “over” 62 countries and entities that are teaming up with us against terrorism is not “cosmetic.” I wonder why he would say something like that.

I thought it might be useful to check up on those countries and see what exactly they are doing to “degrade and defeat ISIL or DASH or ISIS or whatever.”

Here are the countries that have actually done some stuff:

Iraq: Ok, they’re in the thick of it. It’s their country. That’s not to say they have done enough. If they had done enough, they wouldn’t need us. However, one of their big contributions according to The Washington Post is requesting military airstrikes from the United States.

We also know that Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the UAE have participated in airstrikes.

Our next category is “Countries that have done a little bit.”

France: Bombed a warehouse occupied by the Islamic State in Iraq and has vowed to take part in future airstrikes “if needed.” Also, they really don’t think we should be calling ISIS “the Islamic State” even though that is their name. Typical France.

Germany: Has sent 40 paratroopers to Iraq.

Now look, I don’t want to demean even one soldier being sent. These are real lives. But we’re talking about countries the size of Canada and Germany here. They’re sending about as many people as Subway gets during lunch hour.

Denmark: Isn’t bombing anyone, but they did Provide a transport aircraft. So they’re sort of like the Orbitz of this battle.

Italy:  Italy has no plans to take part in airstrikes but has offered to aid in the refueling of planes instead. They’re kind of like the Sunoco of this battle.

The next category of the coalition is “Countries that have sent some stuff”

United Kingdom:  Gifted $1.6 million of weapons and ammunition. Plus, Prime Minister David Cameron has not ruled out contributing to U.S.-led airstrikes in the future.

Thank you for not ruling out your future helping, that is so thoughtful.

Turkey:  More than 100 trucks of humanitarian aid has been sent to Turkmen in Northern Iraq. So they’re probably sending 101 trucks.

Slovakia: And look, I don’t think Slovakia is loaded, they’re not the rich guys on the block. But we’re counting Slovakia as part of this coalition and they have donated $25,000 in aid or roughly the price of a brand new Kia Optima.

Qatar: Sent 300 tons of humanitarian aid to Iraq. And they also passed a new law to stop charities diverting money towards the Islamic State. Which apparently was happening.

Norway: Norway is part of the coalition is part of the coalition because they contributed some blankets and kitchen sets. This is a great donation because it works for a war or if you’re playing house.

Our next category is…“Countries that have said some stuff”

They haven’t done anything, but they have said things and that makes them part of the coalition.

Georgia: The defense minister said officials “fully support what the United States is doing to eradicate these barbarians.”

I’d rather have that than “I fully support what these barbarians are doing.”

Kosovo: The Prime Minister posted on Facebook that they are part of the “emerging global alliance to fight a great evil.” It’s a Facebook post, but a strongly worded Facebook post. I “like” it.

Finland:  Will “concentrate on delivering humanitarian aid to people in desperate need.” Sounds a little more like a charity and less like an army.

Taiwan: Said it would “cooperate closely with the international community to provide humanitarian aid and will “monitor the threat to global security” and will If Taiwan is monitoring, we should be all set.

And these are the countries that have an “unspecified commitment” but are nonetheless counted as part of the coalition AKA “Countries that haven’t done anything”

For example...

Andorra, which doesn’t have an army, and relies on France for protection.

Bosnia is shaped like a heart. Very intimidating.

Lithuania is the only country in the world with an official scent. If it’s not pork scent—I’m not sure it’s going to scare ISIS.

Macedonia is reminiscent of sets from the Lord of the Rings so maybe it can bore terrorists to death.

Malta is a 122 square mile island.

Mexico can send their chupacabras to defeat ISIS, so they actually have something there.

Moldova is the poorest country in Europe.

Serbia is the largest exporter of raspberries—maybe fruit ISIS to death.

Slovenia has one of the largest brown bear populations in Europe. To their credit, bears are pretty scary.

Tunisia is doomed to fall to ISIS, so they can’t help us.

Ukraine is pretty much Russia now, so they have their own problems.

Morocco is one of the largest producers of hashish and cannabis—so they might not be the most focused on ISIS.

Portugal produces half of the world’s cork—I bet they can make some badass cork guns.

And there you have it. Obama’s core coalition.

Hm. I’m not an expert on combating terrorism, but I don’t think you assemble a team to degrade and destroy ISIS with players that haven’t even expressed any interest in playing and really have nothing to offer.

It’s kind of embarrassing, actually.

What’s most amazing about all of this is the lack of interest from the media. When the Bush’s “Coalition of the Willing” invaded Iraq, every news broadcast mocked the rag tag group of countries and comedians thought it was just hilarious.

Where are you Will Ferrell, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Dave Chappelle?

At least back in the Iraq days, they used to say it was just the United States and the UK. This time, the UK has just “not ruled out to contributing airstrikes in the future.”

Perhaps this time, they truly are enthralled by and supportive of the war coalition put together by this Nobel Peace Prize Winning president.

So to review:

-MORE THAN 82% OF THE COALITION IS SENDING 0 TROOPS AND FLYING 0 MISSIONS.

-14 COUNTRIES ARE IN THE COALITION BECAUSE THEY’VE SAID SOMETHING POSITIVE ABOUT THE COALITION.

-13 COUNTRIES ARE IN THE COALITION FOR NO DISCERNABLE REASON WHATSOEVER.

-WE’RE GLAD TO HAVE ALL THEIR SUPPORT, BUT I DOUBT THE ISLAMIC STATE IS GOING TO BE STOPPED BY A FACEBOOK POST. EVEN IF IT’S STRONGLY WORDED.

So, you heard we're fighting ISIS, with a giant mega-coalition. We're sure not going-it-alone, I tellya. What is our coalition made up of? Where is the media asking these questions anyway? Watch in horror.

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:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?

THESE TOP 10 Founding Fathers' quotes help us remember America's original vision

Independence Day is one of the few days when Americans come together to celebrate our country and the continued vision that our Founding Fathers crafted in 1776. But what is that vision? It seems with every passing July 4th, Americans lose even more of a sense of what the original intent of our nation was supposed to be. It's becoming increasingly important to read the Founding Fathers in their own words and to remember the vision that they cast for our nation. Here are our TOP 10 favorite Founding Fathers' quotes to help us remember their original views of government, freedom, and the American vision.

We live in a dark time, so it is more important now than ever to make sure you are anchored to the truth.

Glenn was recently on the “Chicks on the Right” podcast for a follow-up interview after Amy Jo Clark and Miriam Weaver joined Glenn on his podcast back in March. The three dove into a lively discussion that touched on several things happening in Glenn's personal life, and Glenn delved into the importance of truth in our increasingly Orwellian society.

Glenn told the “Chicks” about his upcoming first novel for young adults, Chasing Embers, which is set in a dystopian world where the wildest WEF fantasies have come true and history has been completely rewritten. Glenn revealed that he was inspired to write the book while reading Karl Marx. He reflected on how Karl Marx was, and still is in many cases, considered this articulate revolutionary, but when compared to the words of the Founding Fathers, his articulation and arguments pale in comparison. He wanted to explore the idea, "What if Jefferson was the revolutionary again, not Marx?" Chasing Embers asks how we preserve the philosophies of the founders and the values of the Constitution so that our children have a chance to discover it if the world turns completely upside down.

Glenn also discussed how important it is to learn history, to anchor yourself in truth, God, and the Constitution, and our responsibility to preserve them in the face of the dystopian movement that is increasingly encroaching on Western civilization. Glenn described the country as "suicidal" and posited whether we can rein in a nation that is hurdling itself towards the brink. He said we can do our part to help, but unless the country decides it wants to live, it will die. We have to be prepared to endure such a scenario with our morals intact and the necessary knowledge to rebuild on hand.

Towards the end of the conversation, Glenn revealed some of the lessons he's learned in his decades on radio. He said that you have to know yourself--both the good and bad--be ready to defend your beliefs, and admit when you are wrong.
