Pendulum: If Glenn's Radio Show Went on Chemo, Here's How It Would Look

A book called Pendulum: How Past Generations Shape Our Present and Predict Our Future sat on Glenn's desk for a long time. When he finally took the time to read it, he was amazed to discover it validated his own long-held "pendulum theory" --- in a big way.

"Friends of mine have been saying to me, 'Glenn, you got to read this book,'" Glenn told radio listeners Wednesday. "So I've been trying to catch up on all of my reading lately and trying to get through of all of them, and I've been reading a lot of history books."

Pendulum breaks down societal trends into the "we" generation and the "me" generation.

The "me" generation says, "Can't we all get along? You're okay, I'm okay." On the flip side, the "we" generation says, "I'm okay, you're not okay." At its zenith, it goes from "you're not okay" to "you're an enemy."

According to Pendulum, that's exactly where we are right now.

"So how do you solve that?" Glenn asked.

The strongman's answer would be to remove everyone in his path because the ends justify the means. To counteract this trend, the authors of Pendulum suggests two things: Listen with your whole heart and try not to interrupt.

Glenn described how he's trying to navigate this issue:

Right now, what we’re doing on this radio show is chemotherapy. We are taking the medicine that we think we have to take, which is, be more Christ-like . . . try to articulate what people are saying and listen to people. And don’t demonize.

Yet, we balance that with, there are things we have to speak out against, we have to take a strong stand against. And how do we do that without killing ourself? Well, I describe this as chemotherapy. We are trying to take the medicine that we believe we have to take, and we’re hoping that it kills the infection before it kills us.

Watch the clip or read the transcript below for more.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: So, first, be an example and listen. Two, be capable of articulating calmly how the other side sees it. So not only do you have to listen, you have to be able to say, "Okay. So here's how the other side sees it."

Now, this is amazing because I just read this part this morning. This is what I've had trouble from, from many people, when I said, "Listen, I don't agree with Black Lives Matter, but here's how they feel."

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: What's interesting is, by saying that, the Washington Post has asked for an op-ed piece. The New York Times has asked for an op-ed piece. That's never happened before.

Now, as I said to my wife, I don't necessarily take that as a badge of honor. That makes me question absolutely everything. However, it shows the other side is willing to listen for the first time and because they see that maybe somebody is listening. When we listen to each other is the only time we can -- why did we not make any progress with Barack Obama? Why did we know we would never make any progress with Barack Obama?

PAT: He didn't listen.

GLENN: He never listened to us. Not once.

PAT: No.

GLENN: And so that ratcheted things -- and I think he did it intentionally.

PAT: He didn't even pretend to.

GLENN: No. He didn't want to. He rejected -- Cindy Sheehan met with George W. Bush in the Oval Office. Barack Obama never invited the Tea Party people to go and meet with him and talk to him. Never. And if he did, because of everything that is written by the people on the left, he doesn't listen anyway. He tells you where you're wrong. But somebody who actually listens softens the blow.

I don't think the Tea Party would have been as -- as -- as active as they were if he would have said, "You know what, let me sit down and listen." And then came out with a press conference and said -- with the Tea Party people, "I just met and we disagree on a lot of things. A lot of things. But there's some things that I needed to hear." Can you imagine how that would have changed things?

PAT: Oh, it would have made a world of difference.

GLENN: So why aren't we doing that as leaders? Why aren't we doing that? The reason we're not doing that is because, A, it's just been my gut -- and I haven't had -- I mean, how many times we've walked in for the last year to work and go, "I don't know how to navigate these waters. I don't know what we're doing. I have no idea what we're doing. I don't -- this hasn't been done before. How do we navigate these waters? How do we save our voice?"

I mean, it's almost -- I wrote to somebody last night: Right now, what we're doing on this radio show is chemotherapy. We are taking the medicine that we think we have to take, which is, be more Christ-like, listen to people, try to articulate the way other -- this was before this came out, or before I read this. Try to articulate what people are saying and listen to people. And don't demonize.

Yet, we balance that with, there are things we have to speak out against, we have to take a strong stand against. And how do we do that without killing ourself?

Well, I describe this as chemotherapy. We are trying to take the medicine that we believe we have to take, and we're hoping that it kills the infection before it kills us.

5 SURPRISING ways space tech is used in your daily life

Is your vacuum cleaner from SPACE?

This week, Glenn is discussing his recent purchase of a Sputnik satellite, which has got many of us thinking about space and space technology. More specifically, we've been wondering how technology initially designed for use outside Earth's atmosphere impacted our lives down here on terra firma. The U.S. spent approximately $30 billion ($110 billion in today's money) between the Soviet launch of Sputnik in 1957 and the Moon Landing in 1969. What do we have to show for it besides some moon rocks?

As it turns out, a LOT of tech originally developed for space missions has made its way into products that most people use every day. From memory foam to cordless vacuums here are 5 pieces of space tech that you use every day:

Cellphone camera

Have you ever seen a photograph of an early camera, the big ones with the tripod and curtain, and wondered how we went from that to the tiny little cameras that fit inside your cellphone? Thank NASA for that brilliant innovation. When you are launching a spaceship or satellite out of the atmosphere, the space onboard comes at a premium. In order to make more room for other equipment, NASA wanted smaller, lighter cameras without compromising image quality, and the innovations made to accomplish this goal paved the way for the cameras in your phone.

Cordless vacuums and power tools

When exploring the moon, NASA wanted astronauts to use a drill to collect samples from the lunar surface. The problem: the moon has a severe lack of electrical outlets to power the drills. NASA tasked Black & Decker with developing a battery-powered motor powerful enough to take chunks out of the moon. The resulting motor was later adapted to power cordless power tools and vacuums in households across America.

Infrared ear thermometer

What do distant stars and planets have in common with your eardrum? Both have their temperature read by the same infrared technology. The thermometers that can be found in medicine cabinets and doctors' offices across the world can trace their origins back to the astronomers at NASA who came up with the idea to measure the temperature of distant objects by the infrared light they emit.

This one may seem obvious, but sometimes you need a massively complicated problem to come up with simple solutions. During the Space Shuttle program, NASA had a big problem: hydroplaning. Hydroplaning is dangerous enough when you are going 70 miles an hour in your car, but when you're talking about a Space Shuttle landing at about 215 miles per hour, it's an entirely different animal. So what was NASA's space-age solution? Cutting grooves in the pavement to quickly divert water off the runway, a practice now common on many highways across the world.

Memory foam

If you've ever slept on a memory foam mattress, it probably won't come as a shock to find out that the foam was created to cushion falls from orbit. Charles Yotes was an astronautical engineer who is credited with the invention of memory foam. Yotes developed the technology for the foam while working on the recovery system for the Apollo command module. The foam was originally designed to help cushion the astronauts and their equipment during their descent from space. Now, the space foam is used to create some of the most comfortable mattresses on Earth. Far out.

5 most HORRIFIC practices condoned by WPATH

Whatever you know about the "trans movement" is only the tip of the iceberg.

In a recent Glenn TV special, Glenn delved into Michael Schellenberger's "WPATH files," a collection of leaked internal communications from within the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). Glenn's research team got their hands on the WPATH files and compiled the highlights in Glenn's exclusive PDF guide which can be downloaded here. These documents reveal the appalling "standards" created and upheld by WPATH, which appear to be designed to allow radical progressive surgeons to perform bizarre, experimental, and mutilating surgeries on the dime of insurance companies rather than to protect the health and well-being of their patients. These disturbing procedures are justified in the name of "gender-affirming care" and are defended zealously as "life-saving" by the dogmatic surgeons who perform them.

The communications leaked by Schellenberger reveal one horrific procedure after another committed in the name of and defended by radical gender ideology and WPATH fanatics. Here are five of the most horrifying practices condoned by WPATH members:

1.Trans surgeries on minors as young as 14

One particular conversation was initiated by a doctor asking for advice on performing irreversible male-to-female surgery on a 14-year-old boy's genitals. WPATH doctors chimed in encouraging the surgery. One doctor, Dr. McGinn, confessed that he had performed 20 such surgeries on minors over the last 17 years!

2.Amputation of healthy, normal limbs

BIID, or Body Integrity Identity Disorder, is an “extremely rare phenomenon of persons who desire the amputation of one or more healthy limbs or who desire a paralysis.” As you might suspect, some WPATH members are in favor of enabling this destructive behavior. One WPATH commenter suggested that people suffering from BIID received "hostile" treatment from the medical community, many of whom would recommend psychiatric care over amputation. Apparently, telling people not to chop off perfectly healthy limbs is now considered "violence."

3.Trans surgeries on patients with severe mental illnesses

WPATH claims to operate off of a principle known as "informed consent," which requires doctors to inform patients of the risks associated with a procedure. It also requires patients be in a clear state of mind to comprehend those risks. However, this rule is taken very lightly among many WPATH members. When one of the so-called "gender experts" asked about the ethicality of giving hormones to a patient already diagnosed with several major mental illnesses, they were met with a tidal wave of backlash from their "enlightened" colleges.

4.Non-standard procedures, such as “nullification” and other experimental, abominable surgeries

If you have never heard of "nullification" until now, consider yourself lucky. Nullification is the removal of all genitals, intending to create a sort of genderless person, or a eunuch. But that's just the beginning. Some WPATH doctors admitted in these chatlogs that they weren't afraid to get... creative. They seemed willing to create "custom" genitals for these people that combine elements of the two natural options.

5.Experimental, untested, un-researched, use of carcinogenic drugs 

Finasteride is a drug used to treat BPH, a prostate condition, and is known to increase the risk of high-grade prostate cancer as well as breast cancer. Why is this relevant? When a WPATH doctor asked if anyone had used Finasteride "to prevent bottom growth," which refers to the healthy development of genitals during puberty. The answer from the community was, "That's a neat idea, someone should give it a go."

If your state isn’t on this list, it begs the question... why?

The 2020 election exposed a wide range of questionable practices, much of which Glenn covered in a recent TV special. A particularly sinister practice is the use of private money to fund the election. This money came from a slew of partisan private sources, including Mark Zuckerberg, entailed a host of caveats and conditions and were targeted at big city election offices— predominantly democratic areas. The intention is clear: this private money was being used to target Democrat voters and to facilitate their election process over their Republican counterparts.

The use of private funds poses a major flaw in the integrity of our election, one which many states recognized and corrected after the 2020 election. This begs the question: why haven't all states banned private funding in elections? Why do they need private funding? Why don't they care about the strings attached?

Below is the list of all 28 states that have banned private funding in elections. If you don't see your state on this list, it's time to call your state's election board and demand reform.

POLL: Was Malaysia Flight 370 taken by a WORMHOLE?

NurPhoto / Contributor | Getty Images

It's hard to know what's real and what's fake anymore.

With the insanity that seems to grow every day, it is becoming more and more difficult to tell what's true and what's not, what to believe, and what to reject. Anything seems possible.

That's why Glenn had Ashton Forbes on his show, to explore the fringe what most people would consider impossible. Forbes brought Glenn a fascinating but far-out theory that explains the decade-old disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 along with riveting footage that supposedly corroborates his story. Like something out of a sci-fi novel, Forbes made the startling claim that Flight 370 was TELEPORTED via a U.S. military-made wormhole! As crazy as that sounds, the video footage along with Forbes' scientific research made an interesting, if not compelling case.

But what do you think? Do you believe that the U.S. Government can create wormholes? Did they use one to abduct Flight 370? Is the government hiding futuristic tech from the rest of the world? Let us know in the poll below:

Does the military have the capability to create wormholes?

Is the U.S. military somehow responsible for what happened to Malaysia Flight 370?

Is the military in possession of technology beyond what we believe to be possible?

Do you think American military tech is ahead of the other superpowers?

Do you think there would be negative consequences if secret government technology was leaked?
