News Flash, MSM: People Voted for Trump Because They're Fed Up

The mainstream media is scratching their heads, trying to figure out what went wrong with the election --- but the answer is right before their eyes.

"I'm so tired of listening to the pundits on television trying to figure this election out. This election is really, really simple. Really simple," Glenn said Friday on his radio program.

While there are certainly fringe elements of Trump's supporters that may be racists or misogynists (just as there are racists and anarchists on the left), the vast majority of Trump's supporters are hard-working Americans that see their future and the country they love slipping away.

"People were afraid they were going to lose their God and their guns. They were afraid that freedom of religion . . . was on the ropes. That freedom to be yourself, to chart your own course was on the ropes," Glenn said Friday on his radio program. "They were tired of not being listened to. They're tired of being talked down to. They're tired of being called racist."

Read below or watch the clip for answers to these simple questions:

• Why do political pundits keep calling conservatives racists and misogynists?

• What's the real reason people didn't vote for Hillary Clinton?

• Do Democrats have any self-awareness?

• What would Glenn ask Katie Couric and her ilk?

• Did Obama oversee the biggest collapse of new companies being created in American history?

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

STU: But, I mean, if you think about that, they're going to be put -- that wing of the party is going to be empowered. They're going to say, from their perspective, Hillary Clinton wasn't liberal enough. She was all -- you know, talking about Wall Street. She was in bed with Wall Street. She didn't try to vilify the Republicans enough.

And that was the complaint during the campaign by many of the aides who wanted to say, Donald Trump is just a continuation of everything the Republicans have been doing.

Hillary tried to say, in most cases, hey, look, this guy is not even a Republican. He's too crazy for even the Republicans. The Republicans, I know you're good people. It's him. He's the crazy one. They will blame -- I'm not saying it's right.

GLENN: I'm so tired of listening to the pundits on television trying to figure this election out.

This election is really, really simple. Really simple.

People were afraid they were going to lose their God and their guns. They were afraid that freedom of religion, which it was, is on the ropes. That freedom to be yourself, to make your -- to chart your own course was on the ropes, that our jobs were going away. And they're going away because of regulation.

Now, most people just think it's other -- it's those companies moving to California. But if you had somebody that really could explain it to the American people, those jobs are moving away because of regulation and high taxes.

So it's not to punish the companies. It's to make this the most stable and the most attractive place on earth for companies to come and relocate. And they will come here.

We didn't do that. So they're afraid of their jobs going overseas. They don't see a future, except in many cases, people think it's a Marxist future.

Okay.

On the other side, Hillary Clinton, it's not that we voted for hatred. I'm surprised that Donald Trump could -- could win in this country. I am truly surprised. That's not a surprise to anybody who has been listening to me. I didn't think the guy could win. So now try to figure that out.

All right. I have to then say, "The people of the country are racist and misogynist." No, they're not. They're not. They're not. They're not. They're not. They're not.

So what are they? They were frightened.

PAT: Fed up.

GLENN: They were fed up. They were tired of not being listened to. They're tired of being talked down to. They're tired of being called racist.

PAT: And they're downright angry about all that stuff.

GLENN: Exactly right. And so -- but they're not misogynist. They're not racist.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: They see what they love being torn apart, exactly like the left is afraid right now. That the country that they thought that they were living in and they were building was being torn apart.

When the left is now in the streets saying, "We got to take our country back," I would ask the same thing that Katie Couric and her ilk said to me, "From whom? From whom?"

PAT: From whom?

GLENN: They were making it into a racist thing.

PAT: From a white guy? Are you taking it back from a white guy?

GLENN: Right. So -- that -- they're feeling exactly the same way now.

PAT: Yeah. And there's no self-awareness though. They don't understand that.

GLENN: No self-awareness. And the other big piece of this election is Hillary Clinton is corrupt.

PAT: Terrible. Terrible. Just a terrible --

GLENN: But beyond terrible. If she was just terrible, she might have won.

PAT: I don't know. People don't like her.

GLENN: I know that.

PAT: Don't like her.

GLENN: But they also know Benghazi. They also know she is -- she has been corrupt.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: The Clintons -- they like Bill Clinton, so they'll give her -- they'll give him a pass.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: But I don't know if even Bill Clinton would have gotten the pass.

PAT: Not anymore. Not anymore.

GLENN: Remember, Bill Clinton -- no, Bill Clinton was even shouted down. Bill Clinton didn't draw big crowds. Because he has sold out and they know it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And she's corrupt. I have not heard anyone from the left on television saying, "You know, guys, do you think maybe we shouldn't run somebody who has taken emails and thinks she's above the law?"

PAT: Well, they had nobody else, other than Biden who turned it down. Who did they have? Other than a 74-year-old socialist.

STU: Could we stop for a moment and think about how pissed Joe Biden is?

PAT: And nobody else.

Oh -- oh, my gosh. He probably would have won.

GLENN: Hmm.

STU: I mean, this guy -- I mean, he wouldn't have had the FBI thing, probably.

PAT: Right.

STU: And that's really -- again, she was ahead until 12 days before that thing. And the FBI thing happened, and he was able to close that gap. I mean, you know, something else may have happened with Joe Biden.

JEFFY: Yeah.

STU: But the negatives of Joe Biden are also very similar to the negatives of Trump when it comes to campaigning. They say they have gaffes. They see things that are outlandish at times. It would have been interesting.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, this. President Obama's economy created 220,000 new companies in the first quarter of 2016. Sounds like a lot, right?

PAT: What? Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. 220,000 new companies in the first quarter of 2016. This is the latest data.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: This is down from 246,000 created in the fourth quarter.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: This is the biggest collapse of the creation of new companies in American history.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Nobody's talking about it.

Wednesday, as President Obama comes to the end, company creation rates are as dismal as they were when he was inaugurated. New business creation, especially small business, that's the backbone of America and a growing economy, as we hit another stumbling block -- and it will happen. Don't cheer at the stock market going up under Trump. This could be become a bigger bubble. Be careful.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

David McNew / Staff | Getty Images

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
