Clueless in Cuba: Kardashians Loved Cuba's '1950s Vibe

Glenn got his first taste of the Kardashians, and it was an eye opener.

"I've never watched the Kardashians before. I know that comes as a surprise to many people in this audience. You'd think I'm all up with the Kardashians," Glenn said Tuesday on his radio program. "For this to be a big show in America shows how stupid we are," Glenn said.

Glenn shared a conversation from the Kardashian's visit to Cuba earlier this year, prefacing it with a bit of history.

"Cuba went through a Communist Revolution and has had a dictator since the late 1950s. A dictator that slaughtered the artists. Slaughtered the homosexuals. Slaughtered the poets. Slaughtered musicians. Slaughtered anybody who stood up against. Has prisons and torture cells for anybody who disagrees . . . you'll just be disappeared at night. The economy has absolutely collapsed. And people have lived in abject poverty since 1960," Glenn said.

The conversation revealed what Glenn fears is the average intelligence of the American populace.

VOICE: Did you have fun?

VOICE: I had the best time.

VOICE: Right?

VOICE: I called it on our way in.

VOICE: Would you come back here?

VOICE: Yeah, I would.

VOICE: I love it.

VOICE: I would.

VOICE: I love it. I love -- I hope they just keep this 1950's vibe.

"Oh, they will. They will keep the 1950's vibe," Co-host Pat Gray said.

"Like it's a choice," Glenn said.

The Kardashians enjoyed that 1950's vibe courtesy of crushing communism that stopped economic development.

"She treats it like it's a renaissance fair," Co-host Stu Burguiere said. "Like they're reenacting the Civil War. They've all dressed up in the 1950s and put in 1950s cars to give you that theme of what it felt like."

"It's like people who are living in mud huts in Somalia, and the Kardashians go over and go, 'I love this authentic African feel that they're doing right now.'" Glenn said.

It wasn't just digging the 1950s vibe that made the Kardashians seem so out of touch. They also really, really loved not having cell phones for three days.

"The reason why you don't have a cell phone is because they don't have the technology," Glenn said.

Since the 1950s, the Cuban people have lived without advancements in technology and medicine and basic freedoms.

"People who live there say the only place you can even survive is Havana. Everywhere else is a brutal struggle to get through day-to-day life," Stu said. "And, you know, the idea that they would go down there, say I love the '50's vibe, thank God I don't have to have a cell phone, and it's perfect here . . . how incredibly insulting it is to the people that struggled through this regime."

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
