Chaos Comes From Having No Absolutes (We've Been Teaching Kids There Are None for Decades)

Editor's Note: The following is based on Glenn's monologue from May 17, 2017.

Talk about fast and furious. News is breaking so fast and so furiously on President Trump that many people aren't getting the facts. They don't even know what's happening. We're going to give you those facts to help you understand the world we're living in right now, but more importantly, I want to start with trying to understand you. Nobody in the media understands you. Do I? I want to make sure that we're on the same page so that I can better serve you and figure out the things you're trying to understand.

Historic Times

We are living truly in a pivot point of history. Yesterday, I looked at the team and said, "I can't believe we are living in these times and we have a first row seat at the events of our day. This is an amazing time to be alive." We're going to be remembered for this time in history --- what we did and what we said.

One of the things people will talk about is "climate chaos." We're going on vacation next week, up to the mountains and just getting away from it all. My wife came into the closet and showed me the weather forecast. It's snowing in the mountains. (She's not happy. She's a sun worshiper.) Just this morning in Dallas, it was raining. Climate chaos! It's raining in Dallas, snowing in the mountains, hot in Florida. Yeah, it's always like that. That's not chaos. You want to know what chaos is? It's what we're living right now.

We are truly living in a world of chaos. Watch the news and try to make sense of it. Who do you trust? What institutions do you trust? What do you know is true, really true?

Remember I said to you years ago --- and it seemed crazy to say it --- everything you believe in will violated. Everything you think is solid will be liquid, and everything liquid will be solid. The world will be upside down and inside out, and you won't recognize anything.

Climate chaos? No. The chaos is not caused by the climate.

The Real Chaos

You're causing the earth to die because of your SUV --- and yet --- we have to have those SUVs. We have to have General Motors. We have to keep these companies going. Let's bail them out to make sure they can make more trucks and SUVs while, at the same time, we're told by the same people those trucks and SUVs are evil, oil is evil. (Oil --- petroleum jelly --- changed the world. You don't have oil, you don't have petroleum. You don't have petroleum, you don't have a sewing machine or a cotton gin that works for long.) Chaos.

Chaos comes from paying a tax on something that has now been deemed evil. We all went to school and learned that what we breathe out is what trees breathe in. Now our breathing is supposed to be killing the planet, killing the trees. How is that possible? Chaos.

How many genders are there? If you're like most people, you're probably thinking two, right? Wrong. Despite the solid, scientific evidence, we're supposed to believe there are more than 90 now. Chaos.

Can a white woman identify as a black woman and work for the NAACP? No, of course no!. Well, wait, yes. That actually happened, and the left held her up. Chaos.

If you're white, you can't even talk about slavery because you can't relate to slavery. Even if you were born and raised in the same town as someone who is black --- went to the same school, graduated in the same class as you --- they can understand it, but you can't. Chaos.

Two plus two equals five. It's math, no it doesn't. Yes, it does . . . if you can show me how you got there. Chaos.

We have to print more money to make our dollar sound. What? We have to spend more money to get out of debt. What? $17 trillion isn't un-American, but a debt of $9 trillion certainly is. Chaos.

Which bathroom do I use? Which bathroom is she or he allowed to use? I'm sorry I said she or he. I don't know which one you're identifying as today --- a man or a woman? If you're identifying as a woman, but you're a man and I open the door for you, am I going to be called a sexist? If you're obviously a very manly looking man and you're wearing a dress, I'm going to notice you, but I'm going to be called a hater for even noticing that. At the same time, we're taught, if you see something, say something. Chaos.

Our eyes, ears and every statistic proves that those who kill or die while shouting "praise Allah" follow an evil form of Islam. But we're told they're simply practicing what God has told them to do, they're misunderstood. You're the one who has all the hate --- even though you're the one who will gladly live side-by-side, respectfully with anyone as long as they show the same respect in return. Chaos.

We can't use the same words anymore. Chaos. There are no rules to anything. Chaos. Nothing is consistent, ever. It just depends on who is in charge and who is in power. Chaos.

Agree or be silenced. Agree or be fired. Agree and promote or be shunned.

Nobody can function in that.

False Gods

Who are our heroes today? Every single hero has been mocked, ridiculed and explained away. Our faith is mocked. Our media, who are supposed to stand guard for us, against corruption, seem to stand guard against us --- against our beliefs, our traditions, our institutions. In fact, many of them came from the same places as us, but they no longer even like us or understand us.

Our money isn't safe in banks anymore. Wall Street is getting rich while your wage hasn't gone up, in some cases since September 11. Politicians are getting rich off things that would put us in jail. Charlie Rangel entered Congress poor after serving in the Army. He now has houses all over the world. He's wealthy. How did that happen in the service of his country? He's not alone; I don't mean to stick it to him. They're all like that, or at least a lot of them. They have better health care while we can't keep our doctors.

So what do we do?

We retreat to the things that we know we can trust like our churches. Yet when we get into our churches, we're surrounded by judgment and not people who actually care, people who are telling us they're better than us. Don't do these things. But they do them.

Our doctors prescribe drugs for our children to control the things that make them children. They give us painkillers, and we think it's okay because the doctor prescribed it. Try as we might, we can't get off those painkillers. In the end, the withdrawal is worse than symptoms. Our doctors say marijuana oil is a natural solution, but the government won't let us have a natural solution that doesn't get you high. They'd rather we be on opioids, which are killing us.

The Forecast

I got up this morning, started with the weather forecast and thought, how do I explain the world to my audience? How do I tell you what's going on when I'm not even sure I know who you are?

I don't know how you feel, but I feel like we're living in a world of chaos --- and it's important to point that out because when the rules don't apply equally, it causes tension.

Our kids are in a sea of culture that I don't understand, without any morals or boundaries. Suicide with millennials is up 30 percent. There are somewhere between 20 and 40 service men who come home and kill themselves every single day. The VA is failing them, putting them on more drugs. And those people in Washington who are in power are creating the same VA nightmare for us.

The former Soviet Union is now led by a strongman, former KGB colonel. He came in as a poor KGB colonel, and is now one of the richest men in the world. To a lot of people, he looks like a good guy.

Up is down. Down is up. Good is being made evil. Evil is good. And it seems as though nobody gets it.

You don't feel heard. You don't feel like anybody is really listening to you. I'll bet you many feel like nobody even sees you anymore, and if they do, they don't really care. They're just trying to make money off of you or trying to increase their power. Yeah, yeah, I've tried. Let's take our country back. I was called names. I wore myself out, and it didn't make any difference.

Donald Trump got it. He knew that the real trouble was coming from this cultural chaos, even if he couldn't say it. The press, the universities, the schools that have indoctrinated our children, saying fingers are guns. He knew we needed the Supreme Court, or we wouldn't stand a chance. He gave us that. You don't agree with everything he says, but at least he's swimming the other way. Really? Now he's surrounded by people who have a career in DC. The media has always hated him --- and he's alone. We knew this would happen. Never let a guy like that be president. They'd never let that happen.

Everything I thought I could trust has betrayed me, and now I'm alone --- but I'm going down swinging.

That's how this chaos makes me feel. How about you? Am I even close?

The Biden Admin EXPANDED abortion access because they DON'T believe in the Constitution

Joshua Lott / Stringer, JOSEPH PREZIOSO / Contributor | Getty Images

This month has already produced an extreme example of why we need a functional and more conservative Congress in order for America to have a chance at moving forward—because the Left does not believe in the Constitution.

Sure, if you confronted a Democrat in Congress, they would probably claim some sort of allegiance to the Constitution—but as a practical matter, they do not believe in it.

Instead, the Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch. Why? Because it has the furthest reach through all the various departments, and it can move the fastest—in short, because it’s the most dictatorial. It only takes a department head to write a new memo, or even better, the President to sign a new executive order to carry the force of law.

The Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch.

Do you recall any of the Left’s favorite Supreme Court decisions over the years—something like gay marriage for example—and how Republicans immediately tried to subvert it, using the executive branch to try to nullify the decision? Yeah, that never happened. But that is exactly what Democrats have done in recent weeks to expand abortion access.

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions. When the miraculous overturning of Roe v. Wade happened last summer, President Biden called it “a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court.”

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions.

Recently the FDA approved local pharmacies to issue abortion pills. For the first 20 years after these pills were developed, they were not treated like typical prescription drugs. They had to be dispensed in-person by a doctor. That in-person requirement is now gone.

Keep in mind that the Left’s go-to line is that abortion is always about the health and safety of women, yet a 2021 peer-reviewed study found that chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions. Between 2002 and 2015, the rate of abortion-related ER visits following use of the abortion pills increased by 507 percent.

Chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions.

And now the Biden administration is making these less-safe abortions much more accessible. Thanks to the FDA’s rule change, Walgreens and CVS have already agreed to dispense abortion pills in states where abortion is legal—effectively turning these stores into new abortion clinics.

As for states that have abortion bans, "Team Biden" announced a new way around those too. Three weeks ago, the Justice Department issued a legal opinion that the U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal. What’s their rationale? That the sender cannot know for sure whether the recipient will use the pills illegally or not. So it’s totally okay.

The U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal.

Georgetown Law professor Lawrence Gostin told the Washington Post that this Justice Department opinion is “a major expansion of abortion access in the United States.”

So, to recap—the Biden administration has used the FDA, the Justice Department, and the Post Office, which all fall under the executive branch, to provide an end-run around the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision.

Expanding abortion was easy—simple policy tweaks and declarations that carry the force of law without an ounce of input from actual lawmakers in Congress—all because it comes from the grotesque, bloated, apparently pro-death executive branch.

Glenn is one of the most outspoken critics of the World Economic Forum and their vision to use crises to reconstruct the world order known as The Great Reset. The recent WEF summit in Davos confirms what Glenn has long warned about: globalist elites seek to upend our democracy, freedoms, and way of life to achieve their utopian climate goals. Here are 15 quotes from the 2023 Davos Summit, revealing their true intentions in their own words:

1. Saving the planet

When you hear the word, "Davos," the first thought that should pop into your mind is an elite group getting together to save the world from imminent climate disaster... at least they think of themselves that way. According to John Kerry:

I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet.

2. Private jets

What most people think when they hear the word "Davos" is a group of global elites flying in on private jets to talk about climate change... and yes, John Kerry does own a private jet, no matter how many times he denies it:

I fly commercial [...] Exclusively.

3. Global Collaboration Village

You always hear some weird, dystopian projects coming out of WEF, like "The Global Collaboration Village," a new metaverse community aimed at strengthening "global cooperation." It sounds like the next installment of Brave New World. According to Klaus Schwab, Founder and President of the WEF:

The Global Collaboration Village is the pioneering effort to use the metaverse for public good, to create global cooperation and to strengthen global cooperation in the metaverse or using metaverse technologies. For me, it's a dream coming true because the village allows the Forum to create a more larger and open platform where everybody can participate.

4. Climate revolution

However, the core theme throughout WEF summits is the immediate need for a climate revolution and how businesses are selfishly blocking the revolution because they want to make an extra buck. Here's how John Kerry summed up the sentiment:

How do we get there? The lesson I have learned in the last years [...] is money, money, money, money, money, money, money.

5. Do or die

This often turns into alarmist language, like having to choose between wealth and our planet's survival... Joyeeta Gupta, Professor of Environment and Development in the Global South at University of Amsterdam, said it eloquently:

If we do the minimum at this pivotable moment in our history, then we and our children – even if we are rich – will live in the danger zone. But if we – business people, governments, citizens, cities – take action today, then we and our children will have a future worth looking forward to.

6. Colossal risks

Potsdam Institute's director Johan Rockström, used similar language, claiming we are "taking colossal risks with the future of civilization":

We are taking colossal risks with the future of civilization on Earth, we are degrading the life support systems that we all depend on, we are actually pushing the entire Earth system to a point of destabilization, pushing Earth outside of the state that has supported civilization since we left the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

7. Rain bombs

"Colossal risks" like... rain bombs? We didn't make that up. Ask Al Gore:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs.

8. Survival comes down to this

How do we secure our survival? According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, we have to "end our addiction to fossil fuels." This entails wiping out our entire energy industry, displacing millions of workers, and relying on global governments to usher in a new green industry. In his words:

So, we need to act together to close the emissions gap, and that means to phase out progressively coal and supercharge the renewable revolution, to end the addiction to fossil fuels, and to stop our self-defeating war on nature.

9. Complete transformation

It isn't hyperbolic to argue that the globalist climate goals will completely transform the world economy. Even EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen admitted:

The net-zero transformation is already causing huge industrial, economic and geopolitical shifts – by far the quickest and the most pronounced in our lifetime. It is changing the nature of work and the shape of our industry.

10. Scientific necessity

Of course, to bring about this "net-zero" transformation, we will have to override small, "political expediencies" like democracy to do what is "scientifically necessary." According to Zurich Insurance Group’s head of sustainability risk John Scott:

We’re living in a world right now where what’s scientifically necessary, and what is politically expedient don’t match.

11. Illegal hate speech

Doing away with "political expediencies" would also require the censorship of dissent, which would likely manifest in hate-speech laws. When asked by Brian Stelter how the discussion of disinformation relates to everything else happening today in Davos, European Commission VP Věra Jourová shared this prediction:

Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law.

12. Climate first

We will also have to forego national interests on the international stage. America won't be able to advocate for policies and interests that benefit Americans. Instead, we will sacrifice national interests for the sake of global climate interests. French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said:

The key question is not China First, US First, Europe First. The key question for all of us is Climate First.

13. The role of war

We can also expect globalist leaders to use crises, like the war in Ukraine, to expedite the "net-zero transformation." Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz said:

Ultimately, our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2045 has been given an additional boost by Putin’s war. Now we have even more cause to move away from fossil fuels.

14. Blame game

Globalist leaders will continue to blame ALL of the crises in our society on climate change to justify the "net-zero transition," from the energy shortage to "mistrust, selfishness [and] xenophobia." Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez said:

Our present struggle is not only against Putin or the energy shortage. It is also against fear, mistrust, selfishness, xenophobia, and environmental disaster. And its outcome will define life in the West and beyond for decades to come.

15. Sacrifice for the greater good

While we sacrifice our national interests for the sake of the "greater global good," we can expect our foreign enemies, like China, to benefit. Suisse Chairman Axel Lehmann said:

The growth forecasts now for China is 4.5%. I would not personally be surprised when that would be topped.

Conclusion

Glenn has been clear about the distinction between wanting to transition to green practices on your own accord and being forced into that transition by globalist, unelected elites. Leaders at Davos will continue to use alarmist language to justify their crackdown on democracy and freedom to bring about their leftist utopia. We have to cut through the alarmist language and in order to protect our freedoms.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...
