The Statehouse Public Safety Committee in Hawaii unanimously passed a resolution, letting the public know the government is taking steps to protect its citizens in a worst-case scenario.

GLENN: By the way, did you see what Hawaii did because of the EMP? Hawaii lawmakers want state officials to update plans for coping with a nuclear attack.

Statehouse Public Safety Committee unanimously passed a resolution on Thursday, wants the government to know -- the public to know the government is taking steps to protect the citizens of Hawaii in worst case scenario. They're getting state funding to reequip Cold War-era fallout shelters. Many stocked with medical kits, food, and sanitary kits. But they haven't been updated since 1981.

Yeah, you might want to update that one.

Can you believe we're going back to those times?

JEFFY: Not much has changed since 1981. So don't worry about it.

GLENN: No. Nothing's changed, and that food is still good today.

JEFFY: No. Good to go.

GLENN: It's yummy stuff.

I remember I did my final paper in school for any civics class. I did it on the fallout shelter in the high school. Because I went to Sehome High School in Bellingham, Washington. And I'll never forget. They showed the fallout shelter. And it had all these old crackers and stuff from like I don't even know, 1960. I mean, all of it -- none it was good. This is 1982. So we're at the height of the Cold War. None of it was good. And I forget the fallout shelter was the air duct, which went outside. It was like, if you could have a fan on the other end just to suck that air in faster, it might kill us all faster.


Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.


The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.


Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
