Oregon Proves We Are No Longer a Nation of Laws, But of Men

Three years ago, rancher Dwight Hammond, 73, and his son Steven Hammond, 43, were convicted of arson for lighting fires near their property in 2001 and 2006. They both served jail time, but new authorities at the Bureau of Land Management decided it wasn't enough.

In an apparent case of "double jeopardy" expressly prohibited by the Fifth Amendment, a judge ruled their terms were too short under federal law and ordered them back to prison for about four years each.

On radio Monday, Glenn said this demonstrates "we are no longer a nation of laws, but a nation of men."

A peaceful protest by citizens Saturday was followed by a militia of dozens occupying the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refugean in Burns, Oregon.

Glenn reminded listeners of another standoff that did not end well. Remember Waco, Texas?

"Militia members, where do you think you're going to end up? What do you think the end is going to look like?" Glenn asked. "Remember, Bill Clinton and Janet Reno set people on fire and the American people were okay with it. Why? Because they [the Branch Davidians] looked like crazy people with guns. Image is everything."

While absolutely on the side of the ranchers wronged by the federal government, Glenn voiced his preference for a peaceful resolution to conflict.

"This is the oldest story in the book. This is the message of Jesus," Glenn said. "You want to change the world, you must be peaceful. It's the message of Martin Luther King. It's the message of Gandhi. It's the message of Abraham Lincoln. With malice toward none and charity toward all."

Armed yet non-violent, the militia stated they're goal is to peacefully restore the rights of ranchers and land owners in the area. They haven't taken hostages, destroyed property or fired guns.

Glenn went on to compare the militia's protest with those in Baltimore and Ferguson, and the disparity of how the two have been portrayed in the media.

"They're just peacefully occupying this place," Glenn said. "Now let me take to you Ferguson, let me take you to Baltimore, where they were burning cities down to the ground."

He continued.

"How were they imaged in the press? As people that were wronged, that needed to be listened to, that you can understand what they're trying to say. That they really are just frustrated. They burned the city down to the ground. And they needed their own space to be able to burn cities down to the ground. Montel Williams is on television now saying that the militia should be killed. Baltimore, we should listen. The militia, we should kill."

While the militia may be on the side of truth and what's right, they're not likely to win. Why? Because we no longer live in a nation grounded in laws, but a nation of men. If you're on the wrong side of those in power, you lose.

Glenn likened what's happening now to what happens under the rule of kings.

"The king could do and say anything, and all of his cronies could do or say anything, but the peasant, if they were on the wrong side of the king because it was a nation of men and not of laws, the peasants couldn't get away with it," Glenn explained. "The peasants could be charged with anything and be hauled off to jail. Where, the king could get away with murder."

That's exactly the opposite of what George Washington and our founders intended and created.

POLL: What did YOU think about the 2nd GOP presidential debate?

Wednesday was a big night for the Republican presidential candidates during the second GOP debate... OR WAS IT?

Glenn wasn't impressed with the debate. In fact, he went as far as to say it was the worst Presidential debate BY FAR he had ever seen for THIS reason: NO ONE discussed the major issues that Americans are actually facing.

Inflation has doubled Americans' grocery bills. Gas is nearing a historic record of $100/barrel. We have DOUBLED our national deficit. Bidenomics and the globalists' green agenda pose an existential threat to core American industries while we continue to fund the Ukrainian people's pensions and small businesses. It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752
