Need to know if your Halloween costume might offend? You're in luck! The University of Massachusetts at Amherst has issued a threat-level flowchart similar to the Department of Homeland Security's terror threat advisory system. S.C.R.E.A.M. (Simple Costume Racism Evaluation and Assessment Meter) is a color-coded system with five threat levels from low to severe.

“I've got to give you a trigger warning. I might say something that might upset you guys," Glenn said Friday on his radio program.

Glenn went on to describe how he might react if confronted unexpectedly with the flowchart.

"If I was walking and I saw this on a telephone pole and it was just a picture, a flyer that was just stapled up, and there was no trigger warning that on a pole there might be something offensive, I would be --- and I apologize to Polish people . . . I was not talking . . . I mean a telephone pole . . . didn't mean just to say Pol," Glenn said.

Thankfully, Pat, Stu and Jeffy were all in safe spaces which prevented them from needing counseling due to Glenn's insensitive words.

Watch the clip below for answers to these questions:

  • Is Pat of Polish decent?
  • Should your girlfriend or wife dress as a hot white nurse or a white hot nurse?
  • Did your ancestors kill anyone that would prevent you from culturally appropriating a specific costume?
  • Is it cool to wear an Indian costume (assuming you're not American Indian --- and no offense if you are or aren't American Indian)?

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

GLENN: UMass has a flowchart now for offensive Halloween costumes.

PAT: Oh, good. Finally.

GLENN: Yeah, it's a flowchart called the simple costume racism evaluation and assessment meter. It allows students to determine if their costume is offensive, based on factors like race, historically accepted clichés, and humor. The -- I love when humor has a chart.

JEFFY: Oh. Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: You know it's funny when it has a chart from an institution.

JEFFY: Yes. They should send that down to the University of Florida --

GLENN: They should send it that to Yuck Yucks and Milk Through Your Nose, so the comedians can look at that chart before they go. On.

The results come up in a five-second color-coded area, similar to the government's terror alert level, ranking from low threat level to green to a severe level of threat in red.

PAT: Uh-oh.

GLENN: The flyers are going up around the campus. They have pictures or illustrations.

JEFFY: Oh, no.

GLENN: Hang on. I got to give everyone a trigger warning.

PAT: Oh, no, no.

JEFFY: Thank you.

GLENN: I got to give you a trigger warning. I might say something that might upset you guys.

PAT: I'm in a safe space over here. So you cannot offend me.

GLENN: Okay. I will tell you -- I'm glad I don't go to this college. Because if I was walking and I saw this on a telephone pole and it was just a picture, a flyer that was just stapled up, and there was no trigger warning that on a pole there might be something offensive, I would be -- and I apologize to Polish people. I was not talking -- I mean a telephone pole. Didn't mean just to say Pol.

PAT: Thank you for the clarification on that. I was about to become very, very offended.

GLENN: Okay. You're welcome.

The flyers around campus have pictures of illustrations of white people dressed up as Native Americans.

PAT: Oh, no. You know what that is? Cultural appropriation.

GLENN: That's exactly right. Exactly right. One reads, it's not cool. It's not like your ancestors killed them or anything.

PAT: Only it is. They're being sarcastic because our ancestors did kill them. And everything.

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: So...

GLENN: Another poster of a scantily clad woman says hyper-sexualized racism is still racism.

PAT: Hyper-sexualized racism is still racism. It is.

GLENN: What if you're a white guy and you have your girlfriend is white, and she's dressed up as a hot white nurse or a white hot nurse.

JEFFY: No, that's still hyper-sexualized though.

PAT: That's hyper-sexualized sexism -- it's sexism in that case, Glenn. I'm disappointed in you that you didn't see that. Disappointed.

GLENN: What if -- oh, boy. Other displays on cultural appropriation contradict one another. One flyer says cultural appropriation is an act of privilege. Leads to offensive, inaccurate, and stereotypical portrayals of other people's culture. Another flyer says that culture is fluid.


PAT: Yeah.

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?
