Surprise! Media Missed the Real Story Behind the Ransonware Attack

This past weekend, hackers used pilfered National Security Administration (NSA) software to access computers in 150 countries, holding them "hostage" and demanding a ransom of $300 per device. If successful, it would have resulted in the perpetrators making a cool $1 billion. While the media focuses on how to protect from this happening again, they are once again missing the real story. Monday on Think Tank, Glenn took to the chalkboard to explain what's really behind the hack.

Watch the video for a sneak peek and answers to these secretive questions:

• Did the NSA catch a mole who released the software used by hackers?

• How are the Shadow Brokers hackers related to the Fancy Bear hackers?

• Why do Russian hackers want to create confusion and chaos?

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?
