'The Big Lie': Dinesh D'Souza Drops Some Knowledge on Neo-Nazi Roots of the American Left

The Nazi movement had deep ties to American liberals, author and activist Dinesh D’Souza said on radio Tuesday.

D’Souza explored the connections between the American left and the rise of Nazism in his new book, “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left.” In the book, D’Souza argued that conservatives – who are often accused of fascism – are not fascists, and that calling Republicans and people like President Donald Trump “fascists” is actually the left’s big lie.

On Tuesday’s show, D’Souza detailed an example of the ties between American progressives and the Nazi movement that went all the way up to Hitler. He described how Madison Grant, an American eugenicist and conservationist, was excited about getting a letter from Hitler praising his work.

“This is a really good example of how the American progressives were aware that they were shaping the Nazi sterilization program [and] also the euthanasian program,” D’Souza said. “And they were very proud of it.”

GLENN: Hmm. A -- a friend of ours who has gone to jail for his opinion and so much more, he's not going to have any difficulty with his new book, called The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left. Dinesh D'Souza is here. And we begin, right now.

(music)

GLENN: Welcome to the program, Dinesh. How are you?

DINESH: Good to be on.

GLENN: Are you ready for the pushback that you're going to get on this book?

DINESH: Well, I'm excited about the book. Because I -- you know, a lot of my books, I know what I'm going to say when I start out. And I have an argument. And I develop the evidence. I lay it out.

So, for example, in the Hillary book, Hillary's America, I -- I knew that there was a long complicity of the Democratic Party with racism. It was just a matter of documenting it, laying it out.

GLENN: Sure.

DINESH: Here, with this book -- of course, I had read a few things about it, Jonah Goldberg's liberal fascism.

I noticed that there was sort of eerie similarities between things going on, on both sides of the Atlantic. It's really interesting to compare, for example, look at the Ku Klux Klan in America and then look at the Nazi Brownshirts. Right?

They both grow at about the same time. They both get 3 to 5 million members. In both groups, you have people who love to wear ridiculous costumes, love to do songs and salutes, love to do nightly raids, love to humiliate people, are into racial terrorism.

In both cases, they're the wing of a political party. In one case, the Democratic Party, the Klan. In the other case, the Nazi party.

So I thought, this is going to be very interesting, to develop these parallels. But what I didn't realize was that there actually was intimate relations between the left in this country and the Democrats and the fascists in Italy and the Nazis and Germany. And all of this has been covered up.

GLENN: Yeah. The connections between the early American progressive movement -- I mean, I have letters and documentation myself from the -- I think it's the human betterment society in California. From the Germans saying, "Thank you for coming up. You have woken a country of 60 million people to this eugenics project. And Hitler is going to get fully behind this." I mean, it -- they were deeply tied into what became the Holocaust. And it's all buried.

DINESH: And proud of their associations.

GLENN: Yes, very proud.

DINESH: I'm kind of amused about, there's this guy Madison Grant, who was a progressive, head of the New York zoological society.

GLENN: Yeah.

DINESH: Big advocate of eugenics. And he gets a letter from Hitler. He's super excited. So he goes to this other progressive icon, and he goes, "Hey, check out my letter from Hitler."

And that guy goes, "Wait right here." Goes to his library. Produces his letter from Hitler. So this is a really good example of how the American progressives were aware that they were shaping the Nazi sterilization program, but also the euthanasia program.

GLENN: Yes. Yes. Yes.

DINESH: And they were very proud of it.

GLENN: I posted a Facebook post maybe two years ago. And it was the -- the national Socialist Party platform in the '20s. And it seemed very familiar to me.

You talk about a speech that Hitler gave in '27 where he said, "We're all socialists. We are the enemies of today's capitalist system of exploitation. And we're determined to destroy this system under all conditions." They have 25-point program. The nationalization of large corporations, trusts, government control of banking and credit. The seizure of land without compensation if it was for public use. The splitting of large landholdings into smaller units. Confiscation of war profits. Prosecution of bankers and other lenders on grounds of usury. Abolition of incomes unearned by work. Profit-sharing for workers and all large companies. Broader pension system, paying higher benefits. And universal free health care and universal free education.

DINESH: If you read that platform at a Democratic National Convention, you would get thunderous applause. And I think that's true of Mussolini's speeches, for example.

Fascism and Naziism were firmly on the left. And in one of the chapters, I trace the genesis of fascism. It arose out of a -- what's called the crisis of Marxism. Marx had made all these predictions that communist revolution was coming to Germany, was coming to England.

And when it didn't happen, the really smart socialists sat around. They scratched their heads, and they said, "We've got to -- we've got to revise Marx. We see he got something fundamentally wrong."

And in the 20th century, out of that crisis of Marxism come two new things: One, Leninist Bolshevism. And the other, Mussolini's fascism. They both are spin-offs from socialism. They are on the same side of the aisle. And because of World War II, and because Hitler was on one side, the Soviets were on the other, this has made it very easy for progressives to pretend that if communism is on the left, fascism must be on the right. But this misses, of course, the fact that sister ideologies do go to war.

GLENN: They're -- they're relatively the same. One is about workers of the world, and one is about workers of the nation uniting. It's pretty much nationalism versus world domination under a grand unifying theory, of we're all in this one together. But it's the same awful stew. Is it not?

DINESH: It absolutely is. And even that distinction is blurred because although Lenin talked about international socialism, as soon as Stalin came in, he said mother Russia. Socialism in one country. So if you think about it, Stalin was a nationalist socialist just like Hitler.

GLENN: So help me out on -- you've seen what's going on with Google.

DINESH: Absolutely.

GLENN: This is not going to lead anywhere good. And I -- I can't believe that those people who have said they've been kept in a closet for their viewpoint or their sexuality or whatever, their whole life, are now shoving people into closets and -- and silencing people. I don't understand how the average person, the average Democrat isn't starting to become afraid of what they're unleashing in universities and in -- in the silencing of those who can make a -- a reasonable, rational, and scientific argument.

DINESH: So this really is the fascist mindset. And I say this because typically if we look around America now, we would think the best example of fascism is these Antifa guys dressed in masks, scaring weapons, bike locks, and bats. They're there to threaten, to intimidate, to beat people up. So they look a lot like Mussolini's Blackshirts from the '20s, but I think there's a deeper fascism that's a much bigger problem than the guys on the street at Berkeley. And that is the fascism of the institutions.

So the Nazis had a term called Gleichschaltung, which basically means coordination. But their idea was, we have a society. Everybody has got to march in line, in lockstep. They've got to be in sync with Nazi ideology. And if they fall out, we have to pressure them. We have to cajole them. We have to force them.

And this Gleichschaltung is now in America. It's on the left. It's called political correctness. But I don't just mean you use the wrong word. I'm talking about the way in which Hollywood, the media, academia, and now corporations like Google, if you fall athwart the ideology, they will ruin you, they'll fire you, they will humiliate you, they'll make you into a pariah. This kind of thing is very scary. And it has a deep parallel with what was going on with Europe in the middle of the century.

GLENN: You know I have deep respect for you, right?

DINESH: Right.

PAT: Uh-oh.

STU: That's what he says to me usually when he insults me.

PAT: Look out.

GLENN: I'm not going to insult you.

Those on the right who do not agree with my point of view of Donald Trump have done all of those things that you have described. In fact, they have been as vicious, in some ways more vicious than the -- the Soros group that went after me on the left. There is a -- there is a love in this country right now of winning at all costs and destroying anyone who stands against you that is truly frightening.

DINESH: You know, I have to disagree with that. I was thinking the other day that when I came to America in the late '70s -- I'm a young Reaganite from my college days.

American politics was a gentleman's quarrel. And one could envision Reagan and "Tip" O'Neill having it out, but then you could see them having a beer afterward. And then at the end of the day, there was a shared belief that, you know, "Tip" O'Neill, you know, he loved America. And we all want America to be prosperous. We want America to be strong. We want America to be the world's leader.

We might disagree about how to share the spoils. How America prosperity should be distributed. But it's a debate about means, not about ends. And it just occurred to me how -- how much all of that has broken down.

Now, I blame the left. Because I think that the breakdown started with Obama. And by that, I mean the deploying of the government against your critics. The willingness to sort of treat your critic, not just as a political adversary, but as a real enemy, somebody you would like to see put out of business altogether.

And I think that it is that dysfunctional atmosphere that produced Trump. In other words, the ordinary Republican goes, we appointed all these nice guys, one after the other. There was Bob Dole, self-deprecating and witty. There was John McCain, war hero. There was the super squeaky clean-cut Romney. And yet all these guys began to helplessly flail in the wind as they were converted into Lucifer by the other side. All right. Enough of all that. We're going to get a real tough guy, and he may not be all that straight around the edges, but he can throw a punch and he can take a punch. We've got to fight like those guys. It is this kind of bare-knuckled atmosphere that we're in now.

GLENN: And I don't think it is -- to say that -- I mean, you know where I stand on Obama. But to say that it was Obama. I mean, today is the anniversary of the Nixon resignation. Enemy's list. Nixon -- and I think this is the real problem in America: We keep looking at left and right, which is bogus in America, the way it is -- you know, they've made the left and right in America to be the European left and right. And that is not true.

Right is small government, almost anarchy. And left is total government, be it fascism, totalitarianism, whatever. It's -- those are our two rights -- left and right in America.

But it has become this Democratic and Republican thing, when Richard Nixon was a gigantic progressive. It's progressivism in the early 20th century that was -- was fueling much of what was happening in Germany. And teaching -- and they were teaching us in the same way.

I mean, it was a cozy get-together. And when you have progressivism not recognized in both parties on both sides as people who just want control of other people, that's where we're having this battle because we can point to each other and say, "Well, you did this. Yeah, because my side has that gene in it too."

DINESH: Absolutely.

Well, progressivism was in both parties, even at the beginning.

Now, the Republican version of it was softer than the Democratic version. So, for example, Teddy Roosevelt, although he used some Darwinist rhetoric about survival of the fittest, was thinking mainly about foreign policy. And if you talked to him about something like forced sterilization, I think he would -- family man that he was, he would blanch a little bit --

GLENN: I will get you -- upstairs, I have letters from him that will horrify you on sterilization and the selecting of -- we're going to look at humans, I think the quote is, like the dumbest farmers. Even on farms, we don't let our best stock breed with our worst stock. I mean, he was pretty clear on some of that spooky stuff.

DINESH: Yeah, I have read some things that have made my eyebrows go up.

GLENN: Yeah.

DINESH: But this all took such a bad turn in the '20s and '30s in Europe. One of the discoveries in the book that really startled me was the degree to which -- when the Nazis got together to write the Nuremberg laws. And they were all sitting around the table. All these top guys. Head of the Justice Department, and so on.

GLENN: Explain for people who don't know what the Nuremberg laws.

DINESH: So the Nuremberg laws were the laws that made Jews into second-class citizens. They involved segregation of Jews into ghettos. State-sponsored discrimination. Keeping the Jews out of certain professions. And later, they were modified for confiscation of Jewish property and so on. So the Nazis go -- they -- one of the Nazi meetings we have transcripts of.

Why? Because the Nazis go, we are the first people in the world to be creating a racist state. It's fantastic. So watch us do it. And one of the guys who was there had studied in the United States.

And he goes, time-out, guys. Sorry to interrupt the party, but a racial state has already been created by the Democratic Party in America. We're not the first people to this picnic. They've already done it.

And all the questions were exploring. Intermarriage between groups, segregation, discrimination. They've been there for years. So the Nazis then immediately consulted the Democratic laws.

Let's remember, every segregation law in the South, passed by a Democratic legislature, signed by a Democratic governor, enforced by Democratic officials.

So the Nazis take a look at this, and they go, fantastic. Let's just cross out the word "black," write in the word "Jew," and we're off at the races.

Now, to me, the most sort of poignantly pungent aspect of this debate is, at one point, the Nazis begin to debate, who is a Jew? Because there's a lot of intermarriage that's been going on since the Middle Ages. And the Nazis are not sure if you can classify someone as a Jew, who is only, let's say, half Jewish.

Again, the Nazi who had studied in America, I think his name was Cregor, he goes, problem-solved. In America, they have one drop rule. Basically, if you have any black, any visible blackness in you, you're black. And this is where the whole story gets kind of crushing. The Nazis look at each other and they go, "That's too much." Basically they're saying, the Democrats are too racist for us. We can't go with the one drop rule. And, in fact, the Nuremberg laws, as they were written, you need three Jewish grandparents to count as Jewish. So the Nazis, you may say, took a softer line than the Democratic Party on the question of racial identity.

GLENN: The name of the book is The Big Lie. Dinesh D'Souza. More in a second.

GLENN: With Dinesh D'Souza, his book is called The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left.

You say really controversial things in here that I know the -- the research behind it is absolutely solid. I have done the research. I have many of the letters that you are talking about in here.

In one of the chapters, you talk about how FDR was America's first fascist dictator. And people find so -- they find that so offensive. But they -- they are not, again, looking back at the time. At the time, the progressives and many Americans -- this is before it had been all discredited, thought that that's what a big state -- that the big state was the scientific way to go.

DINESH: It's very difficult for us in the aftermath of World War II, in an era where fascism and Naziism have been completely stained by the order of the Holocaust, it's very hard for us to think why anyone would have been attracted to those ideologies. So in order to understand this, it's almost like you've got to put some historical -- you better get in a time machine and go before those things happened and see what appealed about fascism. So the fascists talked about society as an organism. And each individual is a cell. Your life has no value by itself. But like any cell, your value is what you contribute to the whole.

GLENN: Pick it right back up with Dinesh D'Souza, The Big Lie, when we come back.

(OUT AT 10:31AM)

GLENN: Dinesh D'Souza is here. The Big Lie is the book: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left.

He was explaining how FDR was America's first fascist dictator. And I know that sounds horrible to say now. But we have to look at history as it is at the time. They thought fascism and totalitarianism, big state was the future. They thought it was the new scientific progressive way. And all of this other stuff, where, you know, people got together in their towns -- it was just outdated and old and antiquated and wouldn't work.

DINESH: Socialism, fascism, and progressivism, these are the three great collectivist movements of the last century. It was an era in which words like "dictator" were positive because a dictator was somebody who gave instruction and got things done.

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

DINESH: Totalitarianism, for Mussolini, was a good word. Mussolini's point is, you can't have a fragmented society. We need to have a totalitarian society, in which everything is operating toward a singular purpose.

GLENN: It's Nebuchadnezzar. I mean, it's as old as history itself. Nebuchadnezzar: Let's make bricks. If we all make bricks, if we all are the same and we're working toward one goal, we'll be able to build a tower to reach heaven. It's the same thing, and it never works.

DINESH: And the progressives, like the fascists, saw democracy as a mechanism to achieve power, but not something to take too seriously.

I mean, when FDR's New Deal schemes were being blocked by the Supreme Court, what does FDR do? He basically goes, let's stack the court. Let me appoint six new justices, so I essentially have created a majority. And the only reason he didn't do it is the court essentially buckled in and gave into him.

Now, the progressives today in the textbooks, they wittingly describe this as the switch in time that saved nine. They're basically talking about the trampling of democratic institutions as some kind of a joke. But that's how FDR treated it. And so there's a fascist streak. I wouldn't say that FDR became a full-fledged fascist dictator. But there was a fascist streak in him that was exactly why Mussolini and even Hitler thought that he was like them.

GLENN: So you have to read a book -- they're hard to find. But I think I actually have an extra copy. And when you do find them, sometimes this section of the book is taken out. But it was written by Stewart chase, who you know named the New Deal. And he was instrumental in the shaping of the -- of the totalitarian view of the government.

So he -- he writes a book called The Road On Which We're Traveling. And it's after -- it's just at the end of the war, when we know we're going to win. And so he says, so after the war, these things are going to happen.

It's towards the end of the book. And he says, we now know that fascism and totalitarianism are discredited. So I don't know what we're going to call this. But we'll, for our purposes here, just call it System X. And he says, the United States now, through the last 20 years, has put so much in, that you will see System X, which is totalitarianism and fascism. He just couldn't bring himself to call it that. But he explains how it has been grown and put in, under the guise of freedom.

DINESH: Well, interestingly, if you think about the Democrats today and ask this question: Are there economic policies -- and I'm thinking here, not just Obama and Hillary. But let's say Bernie, Elizabeth Warren, are their economic policies more socialist in the Marxist sense, or are they more fascist? Now, if you look up fascism, it says -- the definition is really clear: State-run capitalism.

If we think of Obamacare, we have private corporations. We have private hospitals. We have private insurance companies. But the government is directing them. The government is setting prices. Deciding on reimbursements. Deciding on who gets coverage and for what.

GLENN: It is what they have said: China is the new model, which is state-run capitalism anyways.

DINESH: And then under Obama, state-run control of banks, insurance -- investment companies, the energy sector, increasingly higher education.

So this is -- you know, the old socialists would go and nationalize it all. The socialists would take over the energy industry, and the government would go take out oil in Midland, Texas. But we don't do that.

Our economic policies that the Democrats advocate are more classically fascist. You go to Midland, Texas. You drill the oil out. You put it in the barrel and label it, and then we will saunter in, kind of take control of it, and tell you what to do with that wealth.

GLENN: So reading your book, there's very little in there that isn't well documented. And you're making a strong case.

However, we're at a place now to where nobody even knows what fascism is. Nobody even knows what communism is. It's just a smear that both sides use. You're making an intellectual case and saying, "This is what it is. And this is what the roots are here in America." You can agree or disagree. But we're not going to have that conversation. We're not going to have a conversation of, you bring your facts to the table. I'll bring other facts to the table. And we'll see which ones really hold up in the test of time and scrutiny. How do we -- how do you share facts like this, without jamming fingers into the other person's chest and -- and being able to have a dialogue?

If we don't start -- if we don't come to a place to where Martin Luther King was, where he said, stop trying to win, you've got to reconcile. If we can't come to the reconciliation of just ourselves with the historic truth, we're doomed.

DINESH: No, I agree completely that that is the goal. In other words, kings, beloved community, that's where we're trying to go.

Here's the problem: That for a generation, for example, as long as the left felt that they could play the race card with impunity, they were not going to stop. As long as Republicans were on the defensive, "No, we're not racist," as long as Ken Mehlman of the RNC was running around apologizing for the Republican Party's racist history at black churches, the Democrats, they just had us where they wanted us. The moment we hit back hard and said in effect, "Actually, you're blaming us for the stuff that you did --

GLENN: Uh-huh.

DINESH: -- and you haven't apologized for it," that's when you now have a pause in the race debate. And it's precisely the counterstrike that's produced that.

GLENN: So I agree with you. Because I think there's -- when I say reconciliation, don't misconstrue Martin Luther King for a weakling. He was a strong defender of the truth and where he was going. So I'm not by any stretch saying, "We don't make these points." We must use history as our guide and be able to expose this.

But how do we now get this to the ears of people who are so wrapped up in the game, that it's just not going to make a difference.

DINESH: Well, if you ask me what I'm trying to do with this book, I'm sort of trying to take away the fascism card in kind of the same way I tried to take away the race card from the left. I'm trying to blunt the force of it.

I'm not using the words "Nazi" and "fascist" as a verbal javelin. Because, first of all, I'm not saying -- and I don't even think the left is saying -- when they say Trump is a fascist, they don't mean that Trump is Hitler, circa 1945. Trump hasn't started a World War. He hasn't gassed 6 million Jews.

GLENN: Correct. Correct.

DINESH: They're saying Trump is Hitler, circa 1933. He's a demagogue, who just came into power, promising these dreams about greatness.

GLENN: Yeah.

DINESH: So I'm saying, all right. The way to take away the kind of smear campaign is to -- is to take a pause and dive into the meaning of these terms, really show that the left is the party of fascism. And I'm hoping that, in the same way, it will strip the fascist card of its kind of power to shut down debate. And not just shut down debate. The left is using the charge of fascism to justify all kinds of behavior that would never otherwise be condoned.

I mean, for example, we said about Obama, A, we're not going to show up at his inauguration. B, we're going to disrupt it. C, we're going to get him on obstruction of justice, even if there was no underlying crime. People would be apoplectic. They would think -- they would think we had lost our minds. But the left goes, of course, we do all this stuff. But we're doing it because we're fighting Hitler by the '30s. We're using by any means necessary.

GLENN: But do you believe that -- because I think this is actually a losing strategy. Because I do believe that I know Democrats who say, you know, they were out marching against the guy on the first weekend. We have absolutely no credibility. Would you just shut up. And when something is real, deal with it.

I think both sides, excusing anything and being offended by everything, those are both losing strategies in the end. Do you agree with that or not?

DINESH: I do agree with that. I mean, I do agree with that. The other problem I think is that the intellectual quality of our public debate has really dropped.

GLENN: There is an intellectual --

DINESH: I mean, I think back when I was 22, I looked up to people like Milton Friedman, Solzhenitsyn, Friedrich Hayek, even William F. Buckley. Not only their -- their rhetorical excellence and philosophical range, but their style. There was a kind of elegance to them that seems to have diminished, if not disappeared, from public life.

And there is no -- you know, the other problem is, you know, for example, ever since the election, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Bill Maher, they've been bloviating about fascism almost non-stop. So now I have a book. And I said to them, okay. Guys, let's have it out. Let's see if fascism really belongs on the right or the left.

Dead silence, you know. Not a word.

GLENN: They won't put you on.

DINESH: They won't put me on. Because I think they're scared. I think they know that they don't know what they're talking about, and they know that the moment --

GLENN: Well, it's all footnoted. You have all the sources in the back. I mean, you can disagree with conclusions that you might make. But facts are facts. Facts are facts.

DINESH: That's absolutely true. When you -- when you look at the -- the actual attributions by Hitler, "I'm getting this idea from the Jacksonian Democrats of the 19th century, and they're the ones who threw the Indians off their land, they displaced them, they took over their land, they enslaved the ones that remained. I'm going to do that in Poland. In the Slavic countries in central Europe, in Russia. I'm going to settle it with German families." I mean, this is out of the mouth of Hitler, you might say. And very hard to deny. Either he said it or he didn't. But it's right there in Mein Kampf.

STU: We were talking in the break about similarities of the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and the Brownshirts and how they rose to power at the same time. The same strength, really. The same types of tactics.

Obviously, in America, so far, thankfully, we've been able to avoid the worst parts of what happened out of those movements. Even though they were terrible here, they never rose to those levels. Was it the Constitution? Is it the Founders that -- that prevented that rise of those terrible elements in our country? What was the difference?

DINESH: Well, first of all, I don't think you can say that we were spared those horrors.

GLENN: No, we weren't.

DINESH: Because if you think about it, number one, the racist regime of the Nazis lasted for 12 years. 1933 to 1945. The racist regime that the Democrats established lasted for over 100 years, from I would say the 1820s until at least the 1950s and in both cases, you had racial terrorism, the Klan, the Brownshirts, that was then replaced by systematic laws that inferior-ized a whole group. So even Hitler talked about -- he said -- Hitler shut down the Brownshirts. He goes, "This is emotional anti-Semitism."

GLENN: Uh-huh.

DINESH: He goes, the Nuremberg laws and the subsequent laws, those are, what he called, "rational anti-Semitism." The state will treat you as the inferior creature you are. We don't need to have hooligans beat you up on the street.

And the Democratic South did exactly the same thing. The ruling power said, we don't need the Klan running around burning people's homes. We will just establish two separate societies: White people on top, black people at the bottom. They won't associate a whole lot with each other. Two separate societies inside of one.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: Dinesh D'Souza. The name of the book is The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left. The Big Lie by Dinesh D'Souza. Always good to have you. Thanks, Dinesh.

DINESH: A real pleasure.

5 STORIES REVEAL the TERRIFYING road our leaders are taking us down

An 18-year-old was recently run over and killed by a man who admitted it was political — and seemed to be just fine with it. Meanwhile, an art event in Portland offered race-based admission pricing. And the Biden administration is calling for dramatically increasing biotechnology funding "to help us achieve our societal goals." These stories, along with two others, all link together to reveal something sinister. Watch the clip to find out how...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson, he was hit and killed by a man driving a car, in North Dakota. Now, that is a horrible story. But when you find out it wasn't an accident, it gets bad. When you find out, all of the details, it gets much worse. This 18-year-old was out on the street, he was in a street dance. And he called his mom and said, Mom, can you come and rescue me? I am being chased by Shannon Brandt.

Do you know him?

She said, yeah, I do. How do you know him? He said, he's chasing me right now, with his car. So when she finally reached him, he was already dead.

Shannon Brandt had run over this kid, intentionally killing him. Now, again, that's gotten worse, right? What makes it even worse, than all of that, is that he's the one who called 911 to report, quote, the crash. Now, he did that after he fled the scene. But he called.

And he said, I ran over him, because he was part of a Republican extremist group. And we had a political argument, and he was calling people to come get Brandt. No, he was actually calling his mom and saying, help me, mom. Help me.

Now, the judge asked him to post $50,000 bail. He says, he's not a flight risk. Listen to this.

VOICE: New developments tonight in the death of a teenager at a foster street dance.

VOICE: According to court papers, it wasn't an accident, but they say a politically motivated attack. The LEYD news reporter Matt Hanson broke the story for you online today. He joins us live tonight for why the driver confessed to police Matt.

VOICE: Yeah. Kirsten, according to court papers, moments before he was killed, 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson called his mom to come rescue him, because 41-year-old Shannon Brandt was chasing him in the city of McHenry, where the street dance had just wrapped up. The papers don't indicate how Cayler Ellingson was being chased, but by the time his mom could get there, her son was dead.

VOICE: Well, I don't understand the differences --

VOICE: 41-year-old Shannon Brandt had a tough time understanding the charges against him. Vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident.

VOICE: He's actually the one that called 911 to report the crash.

VOICE: Police say it happened in this alley around 2:30 Sunday morning after the street dance. Court papers showed Brandt told the 911 dispatcher, that he just hit Cayler Ellingson, because the teen was part of a Republican extremist group, and was calling people to come get Brandt after a political argument. Ellingson's mom told police, her son called her just before the crash, asking if she knew Brandt. And she said, she did. She does not believe her son knew Brandt.

VOICE: Still trying to determine exactly what all transpired at the time of the crash and prior to that as well.

VOICE: Police say Brandt was drunk, when he hit and killed Ellingson with his SUV.

VOICE: We do not know of any witnesses. We still are making attempts to interview potential witnesses from the street dance. People that were present, prior to the crash happening.

VOICE: A judge ordered Brandt held on $50,000 cash, which he objected saying, he's not a flight risk.

VOICE: It's a job and a life and a house, and things I don't exactly want to see go by the wayside. Family, that are very important to me.

GLENN: Oh. Oh. I get it.

He has family, that he cares about. He has a job, and a life, that he doesn't want to see go away. This guy, the most disturbing thing, is he doesn't understand -- when they say, he didn't understand the charges. He was sober during that. He doesn't understand why he can't hit a kid if he calls him a Republican extremist. Thank you, Joe Biden. Thank you.

I want to give you one more story. This one is from Berlin. An art festival in Berlin Germany, offered race-based admission pricing. Now, you want to talk about extremists. We all know what comes out of Germany. According to an ad for the event, white Germans could attend for free, or without a donation of their choice.

Jews, and all other attendees had to pay $80 a piece.

The Aryan feast. Imagining a white world. A three-hour event, hosted last Sunday, sponsored by the Berlin Gallery of Traditional Art was promoted as a culinary event, celebrating white artists and writers through food.

At our table, the event description states, guests participate in an experience that weaves together food and art. Where experts work with white artists, to create a multi-course vegan traditional Aryan meal. While guests were eating, they were also regaled with the works of Wagner by the Munich Aryan Orchestra and Corral. Anybody surprised that Germany would go this way, when it is in trouble, financially?

When the pressures and why?

Why are you not surprised by this story?

Hopefully, you find it offensive, I know you do. Find it offensive and horrifying. But why?

Because the Germans have been trained for a very long, long, long time.

And the Nazi thing, is real. Let me actually give you the right way to read this story. This is actually the -- the real story. An event at an art festival in Portland Oregon, offered race-based admission pricing. According to an ad for the event. Black folks could attend for free, or with a donation of their choice. All other attendees had to pay $80 a piece. The black feast, black imaginerial, a three-hour event hosted last Sunday. And sponsored by the Portland Institute for contrary art was promoted as a culinary event, celebrating black artists and writers through food. At our table, the event description states guests participate in an experience that weaves together, food and art, where experts work with black artists to create a multi-course vegan gluten-free meal, based off the artists work. While guests had their multi-course vegan meal, they were also regaled with interpretive dance.

STU: The only thing you didn't have to change was vegan.

GLENN: I know. I know. It worked for both. So does anybody notice a problem here?

Between the speech that the president gave, just blood red behind him, and Marines standing behind him, he declared that there are undesirables. That there is a disease, a vermin in our society.

And we now have our first case of violence, where the guy doesn't even understand, why he couldn't run somebody over, if he claims that they were a -- an extremist Republican.

You have the seeds being planted right now. Now, let me give you another story. This is why we better find our way to our morals and principles fast. Left-wing activist and Harvard prodigy David Hogg said he would much rather have a Porsche and Portuguese water dog and golden doodle than children, because, quote, it's better for the environment. I'm never planning on having kids. See, here's we agree. We agree. We can cross lines, right? Can we agree? I agree with David Hogg.

STU: It's nice to come together on something this important.

GLENN: Right. Yeah. He should never have children. He said, I would much rather own a Porsche, and have the water dog and golden doodle. Long-term, it's cheaper, better for the environment.

Kids are the new boats, he said. Yes, like kids are nice, but most people can't afford them. So it's nice to have friends with one, but not to have one yourself.

Okay. Anti-family, anti-human.

A week ago, Biden released an executive order on advancing biotechnology and biomanufacturing innovation for sustainable safe and secure American bio economy.

In the order, Biden administration calls for dramatically increasing funding for biotech development, including gene editing.

Quote, for biotechnology and biomanufacturing to help us achieve our societal goals.

Could I ask -- because maybe I missed the memo in the meeting. When did we decide our societal goals? And those societal goals, what does bio engineering have to do with it?

To help us achieve our societal goals, the United States needs to invest in foundational, scientific capabilities. We need to develop genetic engineering technologies and techniques, to be able to write circuitry for sales, and predictably program biology, in the same way which we write software and program computers. We need the power to unlock biological data, including through computing tools and artificial intelligence.

We also must ensure the use of biotechnology, and biomanufacturing are ethical and responsible, and are centered on a foundation of equity and common public good. Advancing racial equality and support the underserved communities through federal government. They must also be consistent with the respect for human rights.

Okay. So we have an equitable investment in biotechnology. Okay.

Let me give you one more story, and all of these stories will link together. All of these stories will show you, you better get to a group of people that think like you do, and start talking about these things, taking them seriously, and standing up for them.

You cannot be silent anymore. What is being -- well, I'll show you what's being drawn. Give you one last story. And I think it will all come together for you. In 60 seconds.

JEFFY: American Financing. NMLS 182334. Www.NMLSconsumeraccess.org.

GLENN: Look, I know you. I'm worried about you being responsible. You're worried about taking care of all the things you have to. And on top of it, keeping your financial house in order. You are a responsible, hard-working American. You have a vision of the future that you're working toward. I don't know what our societal goals are. But your goal? I can kind of guess. You want some financial freedom. You want to pursue the things you want to do. You want to be able to put food on the table.

Well, it's getting tougher and tougher to do so. Especially if you have high interest credit cards.

Would you please give American Financing a call today. Don't wait. This is a company that's been helping people like you, with home loan options. For over two decades.

They actually care about saving you money. Whether it's refinancing your mortgage for a lower fixed rate, providing other types of loans, or even just helping you find ways to raise your credit score, which is incredibly important.

American Financing will see you through. May I suggest you call them this morning.

Interest rates are going up again today. American Financing. 800-906-2440. Or AmericanFinancing.net. Ten-second station ID.
(music)

GLENN: Okay. Let me just recap the stories we just covered.

Driver in North Dakota, a 41-year-old driver ran over an 18-year-old because of a political argument.

That's what he says. A political argument, and the 18-year-old was a Republican extremist. And so he had to run over him with his car.

The next story is the Portland event, that is celebrating black culture and food. I don't have a problem with this. But you're charged 80 bucks to get in, if you're white. It's free for you, if you're black.

Then Biden a week ago, started talking about to accomplish our -- our societal goals, which I don't know what they are. He wants to be able to fund through an executive order, biotechnology. Not a problem with biotechnology.

But the government is now going to be doing this. And it's going to be based on metrics. That are equitable.

Last one, I'm going to take you back to 2017.

At the World Economic Forum, they were doing an interview, Klaus Schwab, who was doing an interview with Sergey, what's-his-face? From Google. Sergey Brin. They were talking about transhumanism, and forcing implants into the brains of humans, and tracking their every thought. Transhumanism artificial intelligence, touches every single one of Google's main projects ranging from search to photos, to ads, Bryn said. He said, it touches everything we do, end quote. So now after he says all this, Klaus Schwab tells those in the audience, that within ten years, everyone on earth will be wearing brain implants. Within ten years. That will be 2027. This will allow the WEF and associates to, quote, measure your brain waves. Can you imagine, I'm quoting, in ten years, when we're sitting here, we have an implant in our brains, so I can immediately feel. Because all of you will have implants. I can measure your brain waves. I can immediately tell you how the people react or feel how the people react to your answers. You cannot stop it, Klaus Schwab bragged.

Okay. Can you imagine any technology that is more dangerous than an implant that allows the government or anyone to know exactly what you're feeling and thinking. I can't think of one. Let me go back through the stories. Let me go back one step. Genetic engineering and technologies to be able to write circuitry, to predictably program biology in the same way we write software and program computers. Okay?

That part of -- of that will be brain implants. But more importantly, that is about having the children you want, that's about perfecting the races. That's about making sure you weed out the wrong thoughts, and the wrong kind of people.

And you go to someone intentionally, running someone over. Because they disagree with you politically. And they think that's okay. Gang, we are going to make the Nazis look like rookies. If we don't get off this road, right now. We all have to stand together, in peace and love, and we have to go out and vote! 50 percent turnout is the voter turnout in an off-year election. 50 percent. It better be 100 percent of independents and people who understand the fire that's coming this way.

Democrats compare DeSantis, Abbott to HUMAN TRAFFICKERS, but BIDEN enabled the REAL crisis

Democrats have amped up their accusations yet again, and are now comparing Republican governors Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis to human traffickers. But Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) isn't having any of it. He joins Glenn to discuss why it's the Biden administration that is enabling REAL human traffickers at the border. And he gives a blistering response to the Sheriff of Bexar County's decision to investigate Florida's transport of migrants to Martha's Vineyard.

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: You want to understand the world, the Rosetta stone. To understanding the news of the day, is my new book, it is called The Great Reset. It's available everywhere.

Okay. So let's just go through some of the stories here. Venezuela, we now know, are empty their prisons, and sending violent criminals, to our border.

We had a record 2 million illegals apprehended at our southwest border, this year. 2 million, that we caught. Probably 3 million is the real total.

In that 3 million, we had another 12 caught, just last month. Another 12. Now, these are special illegals.

These are on the terror watch list. Remember, you heard a story. There are 24 people that were found. You know, on the terror watch list. Yeah. Uh-uh. Let me give you the stats on this. In 2017, two people got through that are on the terror watch list. 2018, six. 2019, zero. 2020, last year of Trump, two. First year of Biden, 15. And so far, this year, 78 from the terror watch list have come through our border, that we know of. Chip Roy is with us now. Hello, Chip. How are you, sir?

Doing great, Glenn. Great to be on the show.

Although, not doing great about the state of our border, and what it means for your or my home state of Texas, or this whole country. But I would love to live in this country, and keep fighting for it.

Chip, by the way, he's the congressman from Texas. I don't think I can take any more of this from the northern states saying, we're not a Texas border town. What the hell does that mean?

What does that mean? That they should just take it?

CHIP: Well, there's a certain irony in that, right? Listening to the DC city council woman, and the mayor saying, oh, we don't have the resources to deal with that. Texas does.

Wait. Hold on a second. By resources, you mean all of our towns getting absolutely overwhelmed and inundated. Our schools having to deal with massive numbers or actually shutdown because of bailouts, and the danger posed to them in South Texas. Our ranches getting to -- fences getting cut. Children dying from fentanyl poisoning. You know, people living in stash houses.

You go look at Washington, DC, Glenn. Oh, they wake up now. Oh, my gosh. There were 50 shipped to Martha's Vineyard, and we had 100 dropped off at Kamala Harris' house. There were 73 people found in a stash house in Washington, DC, in early August. Twelve of them were kids. This is real. It's in our nation's Capitol.

There are cartels. There was a headline in Baltimore just about a month ago, about the dangers of cartels engaged in Baltimore. In Virginia -- Culpepper, Virginia, talked to a sheriff last week, when I was meeting with a mom, who lost her children to fentanyl. And they busted a cartel operation in Culpepper, Virginia, one hour west of our nation's Capitol. It's happening. This administration knows it. They're lying about it, and they absolutely need to have to face consequences on what they're doing to our country.

GLENN: So, Chip, I'm so frustrated, I could pop a gasket when I start thinking about this. They're now comparing the GOP governors, saying that they're like human traffickers.

You don't need like human traffickers. You have human traffickers on the border. Human trafficking has never been this bad in America, and the Biden administration is creating and funding those human traffickers.

CHIP: That's exactly right.

And I just want to pause there for a second.

Those of us who love our country, were watching human beings being used as political pawns by these Democrats. Yet, they then point the finger at Governor Abbott or governor DeSantis. For highlighting the problem. By moving people who largely volunteered for it. Moving them to another place in the country, to essentially wake people up. Because MSNBC and CNN and the Washington Post and New York Times. And they all refused to report on it. There's a block of people in our country, don't know what's going on. If you're a listener out there, stop making nice when you go to your churches and you go to your community groups. And you don't want to talk about these things. Tell everybody.

Wake people up. Because your children are dying from the fentanyl as a result of the open borders.

Your families are going to get endangered by cartels and gangs.

This administration is causing it. But let's be honest, Republicans are allowing it to happen. That's why I'm calling on ending the continued funding of this crap.

I don't know how Republicans can fund the very things they campaign against. We shouldn't give one more penny to a homeland security administration that refuses to secure our border.

GLENN: Amen. Amen. But I don't think Turtle Face has the courage to do it. Let me ask you about the Soros-funded lawsuit against Florida, violating these illegals, their constitutional rights. They don't have constitutional rights. You don't have constitutional rights, but here's Soros funding this.

CHIP: Well, obviously, and you mentioned with the Soros-funded effort. The lawyers are seeking them out to go turn them into, again, political pawns.

And it's absurd to say, that individuals, who came to our country, illegally came here making some claims that this administration -- they were inducting them into the United States, endangering our people. That for some reason, governors moving them around our country, are somehow violating rights that they don't really have under the Constitution.

GLENN: Well, wait a minute. What is the difference between DeSantis or Abbott moving these people to Washington, DC, or Martha's Vineyard, in the day time, as opposed to, to the federal government moving them all over the country, we don't even know where they go?

CHIP: Yeah. Well, that's exactly right. The federal government has been distributing people throughout this country.

Let's go a step further. How about every non-governmental organization, every charity, every group and church organization. And Catholic charities.

And all the ones that are neck deep in all of this, that are running and putting people in hotels in south Texas. They are literally going and coordinating, picking people up. And distributing them throughout the country.

And, by the way, this is really important, okay? People are saying, oh. But they're seeking asylum.

Hold on. The vast majority of these right now, they're not even claiming asylum. They're not even looking through adjudication of acclaim for asylum. They're literally being brought through a tent or given a pass that's four acres. They're put in through a system. It's all set up. Just to process them. And release them under parole. And a notice to appear. Which is an absolute abomination. And a violation with the letter and the spirit of the law. It being purposefully. It's abusive. They're the ones moving human beings, and trafficking human beings. And the blood is on their hand. The little girl getting raped in a stash house, as we speak.

The American that is dying from fentanyl poisoning as we speak. The people who are going to be endangered by the criminals you alluded to, coming from Venezuela, or across the world. The terrorists you're talking about. It's just a matter of time. And Republicans ought to stand up and fight for the American people.

GLENN: I will tell you, this sheriff in Behr County, that is -- is it the FBI now? Investigating what happened in Florida, with DeSantis, flying these people up. He doesn't -- he doesn't claim anything is illegal. He just says, I don't know. It doesn't feel right. When are we basing investigations on feelings?

Second of all, this is the same guy, who in his county, you had, what? Fifty people die in the back of a truck.

Did he care about that?

CHIP: Well, you know, it's a really good point. And, you know, I've got a great relationship with a lot of the line police officers in San Antonio, the sheriff's deputy. This is nothing more than Sheriff Salazar playing politics, and doing so in a way that would endanger Texas.

And I want to be very clear. Any of my listeners out there in San Antonio, my constituents.

This is an absolute abomination, what the sheriff is doing.

He should be challenged for it. He needs to be removed from office. And someone needs to take him down, in terms of his political career, and we should replace him with somebody else. It's absurd.

You have fifty-three people, as you said, dying in a tractor-trailer in San Antonio. You have people, that we can't even get a lot of our cases brought on drug crimes because they don't prosecute them.

Because liberals take them to the DA's office, and because you have this kind of weak leadership. We need strong leadership in our cities. To root out crime. And we don't need these kind of political games. Where this is very specific, going after DeSantis. Because DeSantis is daring to say, that we ought to highlight this, by, you know, moving people around the country, so that people can understand what's happening to Texas, and to Florida, and to other states that are bearing the brunt of this. It's absurd.

GLENN: I don't even -- how do cities claim to be sanctuary cities, and then say, oh, we can't tabling of these people? How is that possible?

CHIP: Well, that was the DC councilwoman, I can't remember her name, who said, oh, she was the one complaining. Oh, they're turning us into a border town.

I said, hold on a second. You called for the abolition of ICE. You were out lauding DC, as far back as six or seven years ago. You, and Muriel Bowser. The mayor here, saying you're a sanctuary city, and you're complaining about a hunter being dropped off?

We're getting 3 or 4,000 a day, rolling across the border in Texas. That are being apprehended. Not even counting the got-aways.

I mean, the extent to which people are burying their head in the sand, and I want to go back to the fentanyl crisis. Because I've seen four people die in Hayes County, which I represent. I've seen people, high profile, and people not -- people don't know. And talking to moms.

I was at a roundtable last week with 12 moms, who have all buried their kids because of fentanyl poisoning.

And the American people don't understand. We're talking about pills. We're talking about one pill can kill, because it was cooked up in a cartel back yard, funded by Chinese fentanyl.

We actually had some law enforcement in Harris County the other day, who mistakenly took a pill, because it looked like candy that was laced with fentanyl, that they had some product. I mean, I'm telling you, people don't know what's happening. In the '80s, Glenn, the cocaine epidemic we had, 10,000 people died in a year. We're talking 107,000 deaths from opioids and drugs last year.

72,000 from fentanyl. It's a major problem. And it's because, we're not securing in our border.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. So I just -- I would like to add something.

I had fentanyl when I was in the hospital, and it almost killed me. And I read the box that it comes in.

It was a patch. My wife could not touch the patch, when she was putting it on, because it could kill her, just by putting her finger where the fentanyl was. Okay? That's how dangerous it is. On the box, it says, for end of life use only.

We have -- remember, it doesn't take a lot to kill you. 2300 pounds of fentanyl came across our southern border in August. That's 100 pounds more than July. And 13,000 pounds this year.

What are we doing, America?

CHIP: Hey, Glenn, to be clear. And those numbers are exactly right from the perspective of border patrol apprehension, but that does not count what got through. That does not count what is coming along, with the known gotaways.

That does not count what -- in Texas, our law enforcement have intercepted after it's gotten past Border Patrol.

In other words, the numbers are massively higher than even that. And when you look at fentanyl. Just so everyone understands. One to 2 milligrams can kill you. That fits on the end of a pencil. That's what we're talking about. When I say one pill can kill. Every listener out there. Forget politics for a minute. Go, make sure your children, your grandchildren, your loved ones. The people you care about know this.

You take a Xanax, you take an Adderall, you take something that looks like candy, if it's laced with fentanyl, you die.

And it is getting distributed throughout our country. We stopped two girls in Arizona, about two months ago, with 500,000 pills in their car. We stopped the car with 100,000 pills in it. This is a direct consequence of this administration. But I want to be equally critical. It's Republicans funding the government, that is carrying out this tyranny against the American people. For open borders. Hiring IRS agents. Having our energy getting absolutely destroyed by this administration. Continuing vaccine mandates, which are harming our men and women in military.

We have got to stop enabling this, Glenn. Republicans. We can stop it. Just stop. Not one more penny. Why would you fund the very thing that you campaign against. That's what I don't understand about Republicans. So I'm going to keep -- Kevin McCarthy yesterday. Kevin said, hey, if they're not going to do anything about the border, we should not be voting to fund this CR. That's a big statement.

GLENN: That's a big statement. I would like to see him back it up. He would have my support, if he backs that up. I'm not sure if he has the courage and cojones to do it. Being from Texas. You know what that means. But I hope that he does.

I hope the Republicans actually mean what they say. Chip Roy from the great state of Texas in the U.S. House. Thank you so much, I appreciate it, Chip.

By the way, you have to square your shoulders and stand up straight. You are on the right side of history. You are on the right side.

It is so clear, this battle of good versus evil. Who is actually helping people traffic children? Is it DeSantis and the GOP

Or is it this government, that is -- that is turning its blind eye, and allowing the cartels. Allowing China, to come in with boatloads of fentanyl.

Our children are at risk. And what are we fighting about?

We're fighting another evil, having -- having a debate, on whether or not you can mutilate our children, in a hospital! You're on the right side of history.

Do global leaders WANT WAR? Glenn's WARNING as Biden responds to Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin has escalated his war against Ukraine yet again, but this time, he's threatening the West too. Glenn review's Putin's latest speech and Biden's promised response. But as the West jumps from crisis to crisis, Glenn wonders if a larger conflict is exactly what global leaders want...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Oh, my. It is seriously, this is good. What's happening in Russia right now. Vladimir Putin, who just put a Russian pop singer, pop star. One of the biggest stars, I guess -- who would she be like? Beyonce?

One of the biggest stars, all kinds of awards, from Putin even. He's just arrested his -- or her husband, because he spoke out against the war, and so Putin declared him a foreign agent.

And now, she's saying, I want to be declared a foreign agent too.

Really? My husband is a foreign agent. Then I must be one too. Keep that to yourself.

Don't -- don't, no. It probably won't end well for you.

Stay away from windows and rooftops. I'm just saying. Yesterday, last night, in a very unusual and still unexplained move, Vladimir Putin, was two hours late for his speech. He's always on time. The nation waited and waited and waited for him to give this ground-breaking speech on Ukraine.

It was late. After two hours, the Russian news agency said, go to bed. He's not coming.

He gave it in the morning, which is late last night, our time.

And he -- and he did make some announcements, which, you know, wonderful.

He announced a partial military mobilization. Putting the country's people and economy on a wartime footing.

He -- he said, we have to turn Ukraine's people into cannon fodder. He said with be mobilization events would begin, Wednesday, today. He didn't say what that was, other than he had ordered an increase in funding to boost Russia's weapon's production.

He's also now telling, the -- the industries. What they should and should not make. I can't think of the last time. Because Germany just did that.

They took over some companies. And they were like, hey, we have to take over. Because we have an emergency on our hands. When was the last time Germany and Russia were telling their companies what to make?

Oh, man. There was a -- was it when they went into the beetle production in the 1960s? Oh, no. That happened earlier too.

I can't remember.

But the partial mobilization is kind of hazy. He wants citizens to contribute more to the war effort. But they haven't declared war. This is a special military operation. He said, I reiterate, we're talking about partial mobilization, that is only citizens who are currently in the reserves, who will be subject to conscription. And above all, those who served in Armed Forces, have a certain military specialty and relevant experience. Conscripts will be obligatory, and they'll go through the additional military training, based on the experience of the special military operation before departing to the unit. So he's calling everybody up. He also said, that nuclear options are on the table. No joke.

He said, this isn't a joke. I don't know if he was making fun of Joe Biden. But he said, it's not a joke.

That nuclear options are on the table.

STU: I've seen it translated as not a bluff, as well.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Okay.

STU: Which neither one makes me feel good.

GLENN: No, no, no, no. And what makes me feel worse, is I'm seeing MSNBC and CNN run the chyron at the bottom of the screen, Joe Biden is going to be speaking now at the UN, and it's saying, he's about to give a critical speech about the war.

STU: What worries you with this?

GLENN: Critical.

STU: What worries you with this situation overall, though? Not just the speech from Biden. Russia, Ukraine. What do you see as the -- the --

GLENN: Nuclear war.

STU: I mean, how does that happen?

GLENN: How does that happen?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: We have a guest. Can we ask to push back. I'm so sorry. We just got the president's speech is coming.

The -- what's -- what I think could happen, is I think that the world leadership, they want war. The way to change everything is to have a war. Because everybody is so concerned about war, that hmm. Oh, well.

Who cares about the dollar, or replacing it? Or you are no longer doing that job or we don't have fertilizer. All of that stuff becomes secondary to a global war.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: Putin knows this. The western leadership clearly knows this. I fear that Putin could do something that would be provocative, and we will jump in, and escalate.

And before you know it, we're in nuclear war. Look, can we -- would you describe this? Let's do a play-by-play on this.

This is from Princeton University. This is plan A. What would happen if Russia dropped a tactical nuke, on Ukraine or somewhere in that area?

Just a tactical nuke, which is not Hiroshima. What would happen?

Well, would you like to play a game? Plan A.

What follows is a description about how conflict with Russia and the United States, could escalate from conventional war, to all-out war.

The first nuclear warning shots. The simulation begins with the concept of conventional conflict, and Russia uses one plane to drop a -- a non--- a nuclear weapon.

Nonconventional. And it's a little slow. There it is. There's -- there's the one bomb. So they drop one bomb. What is our response?

This is what I fear. Our response. Joe Biden is the tough guy. I mean, he was with corn pop, on the mean streets by the pool.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And he's a tough guy, that, oh, yeah. Well, I'll show Putin. So they go into the tactical plan. Which our response.

What is our response here, Stu? Can you see that? It's so small, I can't.

NATO responds, and I think they -- they respond by sending three planes, and we start to drop --

STU: We drop one nuclear -- tactical nuclear weapon in response.

GLENN: Tactical. Right.

STU: And then Russia, they -- they escalate it just a tad here.

GLENN: Yeah. And they start to send planes out. And they're dropping regular nukes. And now they're starting to attack, not only Ukraine, but also the NATO countries, on the border of Russia.

We see this happen, we launch our planes. And we start to nuke, some cities in -- in Russia.

Then they launch their nukes, towards us. Well, they've got nukes that are being now launched from missile silos. We better respond. So we launch our missiles from our silos.

And if you're watching TheBlaze TV, it is stunning, the -- the look.

Already, three and a half million people are dead. And that's just basically in Europe and Russia. Now, we launch just from the center of our country, we don't launch the full thing. We launch from our subs, and we launch into Russia. And we aim at their nuclear silos. But as our nukes are coming down on their silos, they realize, we better launch, because we will lose our silos and all of our nukes.
And so they launch at our nuclear silos.

It's great. It's great. Because then we're going to launch again, on other silos. And it gets even better. Because then they launch, at our 30 biggest cities. And then we launch at their biggest cities. And then global warming is true. It goes from 80 degrees to 7,000 degrees overnight. That's great.

STU: You have no choice, but to laugh. And this is from Princeton. It's not just something somebody made.

GLENN: Right. And what's so concerning about this. If you want to reduce the surplus population. If you believe there's such a thing as a surplus population, if you want to reset the entire world, remember, who is Putin's brain?

Who is Putin's brain?

Putin's brain is Aleksandr Dugin. Aleksandr Dugin is the guy who came up with this whole thing in Ukraine.

And his plan ends with literally in his words, the literal biblical Armageddon. That we must completely destroy all of technology, and all of the old worlds, if you will, the one we're currently living in. So the world can be reset.

He makes Klaus Schwab, seem like my best friend. That's who designed this. So what you might think, could never happen, could very well happen. Because remember, the things we're talking about in the news today, much of it, I told you, would happen. And even I thought to myself, that can't happen. Really?

And look at the world we're living in

New York SUES Trump ... over THIS?

After years of investigations, including by intelligence agencies across the world, New York Attorney General Letitia James is suing former President Trump ... for allegedly misleading banks. If that's all they could accuse "the most investigated person in the world" of, Glenn says, then that's not half bad. Glenn reviews this latest attempt to take down Trump and wonders if this insanity will ever end...

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: So we know -- we know the attorney general from New York, Letitia James, has been investigating Donald Trump now for three years. Three years.

And here's what they've come up with. And she's going to sue. Now, she can't prosecute because it -- it has to be a civil suit. Because she didn't really find anything there, except, he might have been misleading the banks. Uh-huh.

Now, she is suing not only him, but his two sons and daughter. I don't know what they had to do with this. But she's going to get them. So she's filing a civil suit, that says, he lied -- no. He misrepresented his holdings to the banks. Now, he was going in for a loan. And Donald Trump does something that he never, ever does. I'm the richest, greatest person of all time. Yeah. That's how he represented himself. My apartment is the most beautiful, spacious, most expensive apartment of all time. Of course, I -- I mean, I have nothing to back that up. I'm not presenting. I'm just telling you right now, it's $300 million. It's great, fabulous. Okay.

All right. So what did the poor bankers do? The poor bankers, they had to believe that his apartment, there in New York, just down the street from the bank, that that apartment was worth $300 million. Because that's what he said.

Now, he said, again, that there was no appraisal done on it. But, I mean, what does that even mean? The word appraisal to a banker. They don't know what that means. And then they gave him the loan. What!

That's what she found. That's what she found.

STU: And then we should also mention back. He paid the loan back with interest. So they made a large profit.

GLENN: Yeah. Okay.

STU: That's the --

GLENN: Now, I know predatory lending was hang at the bank.

STU: Was it?

GLENN: No. No. You know, in '08.

STU: Oh, my God.

GLENN: Predatory lending. That was the big thing. Predatory lending was happening at the bank. Where they would just get this hapless dukes.

STU: They would hunt them down. Give them large portions of money, to give them things they wanted.

GLENN: Yes. Yes. Well, they didn't hunt them down. You would have to come into the bank and apply.

STU: But at some point, I'm sure, the person that wanted to borrow, ran out in fear. Because they didn't want the rates they agreed to. So they ran out, and chased them down in the streets. And held them down and made them sign.

GLENN: Correct. Fauci had to be involved in some way, or not. Because Fauci is a good guy. I'm forgetting which side we're supposed to be on now.

All right. So predatory lending.

Now, this is predatory borrowing. You're going into a hapless bank, and you're dealing with a hapless banker, who knows how good he is. You're just Donald Trump. You know. And you're going to your bank. And you have accounts there. And you're famous. And then who you are. So you're probably just getting whoever is next in line. You know, at the loan desk.

And -- and so he comes in. And he says, crazy things. That's what he tells the bank he says, these crazy things to the banks. And this poor banker, he doesn't know what's true, what's not. He doesn't have any way. Well, is his house really worth that? I don't know. I have no idea.

Hmm. Hmm. Especially when he says, there was no official appraisal done. That would mean, I'll break it down for the bankers that are listening. Us little folk, know about this. Before you buy a house. Or before you borrow against it, or whatever. There has to be an appraisal. You know what I mean?

I can't just walk into a bank and go, hey. My house is worth a billion dollars. They'll figure it out. But I about it to different banks, than someone like Donald Trump would go to, you know what I mean? They don't know how to figure that stuff out.

Here's the point of all: Three years of investigation. And this is what they have. I want to say the most incredible thing even to me, and I've said this to his face. Donald Trump is easily the most investigated human being in all of history. Maybe even more than Jesus!

Because they didn't have spy agencies back then. But they have investigated this guy, with guaranteed every intelligence agency in the world. Our FBI, our CIA, NSA, MI5. All of them, I think even the gestapo came back and were like, I'm dead. But I think maybe we should investigate him, because I hate him. He's given us Nazis, a bad name.

So everyone investigated -- and they -- they weren't like, hey. Just give me -- give me the scoop on this guy.

They were looking for things to bring him down. And this is what they have, or they have to make things up. Oh, he peed on a hooker. Huh. This is the amazing statement.

I think this guy may be the cleanest guy on the planet. I can say this. I think he is for sure, the cleanest guy, ever to be involved with construction, in New York. I mean, honestly. You know, so you want to build a building here?

I mean, oh, I would like to see this. Maybe the unions not coming to work today.

Don, I would like to help you, but just -- okay. Come on. We all know that happens. No, the mob isn't real.

We all know that happens. They can't get that on this guy. And he built buildings like in ten minutes. Maybe they're made of paper!

Maybe they're not even safe.

STU: I just can't believe we're going town this road again. Is this really happening again? How many times?

I feel like I'm watching the 900 parental DNA test on Maury Povich. It's like, how many times do we have to go through this?

GLENN: Okay. So let me -- let me turn it around for you. Because right now, I'm thinking to myself, when is anybody on the left going to understand? It ain't going to happen. It ain't going to happen. And it's not going to happen. Not because you don't want it to happen. Not because you haven't tried to make it happen. Not because you haven't looked hard enough. You've looked. At some point, you have to go, I can't believe I'm saying it. But the guy is clean. Okay?

And I think to myself, when I saw this, really?

Three years of investigation in New York! And this is all you can -- you came up with. Wow.

STU: She had to say something, right? She went through three years of investigation. She had to say something.

GLENN: Right.

STU: You know, we saw what happened in the other New York investigation. Where they said, yeah. We don't have anything. We're just going to stop. And that's a scandal. Like, if you don't come up with something, you're involved in a scandal. So you have to say something. She comes up with this. As you point out. There's these statements, were not audited at any point. You know, I just -- he got the loans, with a long-standing business relationship with most of these banks anyway. The loans came through. He paid them back with interest. They all --

GLENN: Boy, it's a boring story.

STU: It's a really boring story.

GLENN: And the way she presented it. She was trying so hard to make it exciting. It was really fun to watch.

GLENN: We have. Let's play a little bit of that. And then I have to come back and tell you what I learned about this.

VOICE: The complaint demonstrates that Donald Trump falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars, to unjustly enrich himself, and to cheat the system, thereby, cheating all of us.

GLENN: Wow. How --

VOICE: Mr. Trump, and the Trump organization repeatedly.

GLENN: Can you stop for just a second.

STU: The overpronunciation is just --

GLENN: Can I just ask you though. I don't think he cheated the banks by any stretch of the imagination.

Again, not audited. Nothing was -- nothing was legally binding here on what he said. That's him. That's what he does. Oh, you should see my heart. It's the greatest Honda ever. It's the most expensive Honda, you could ever buy. Come on!

So that's what he does. So there was no crime committed here. Let's just say there was. If there was, she would have been prosecuting him for a crime. So there's no crime here.

STU: But she turned it to other people, to let them prosecute it. That was her big step.

GLENN: Yeah. So let me ask you this, Stu. Let's dream a dream, that he did cheat the banks.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Isn't there -- I mean, I still think, I hope that it's less than 50 percent of me, but maybe not. That's kind of like, get them, Don.

Screw the big banks. This is -- kind of part of me is like, yeah. Good for them. Oh, you didn't catch that. You believed his apartment was worth 300 million --

STU: I mean, they -- one of the accusations is he listed it at something like 60,000 square feet. And it's really -- maybe 30,000 square feet. And it's only 11,000 square feet. Now, obviously, if they cared. You can look up, in property records, how big an apartment is. It's not hard to figure out.

GLENN: And how did -- how were we served an injustice?

STU: They're just reasoning -- right.

GLENN: He paid it off. The bank is happy. He's happy. Everybody is happy. He didn't break a law. What are you talking about?

STU: Now, she's saying, that she thinks he did break a law, and they're trying to get someone else to prosecute it.

GLENN: All right.

STU: But to be clear --

GLENN: But then how does his daughter get involved in that?

STU: I don't know. It's so stupid.

But, like, what I keep coming back to on a lot of this stuff, especially the stuff they keep trying to dig up on him, in New York.

Let's say all of this is true for a second. Let's say he misrepresented how much his properties were worth.

Like, what is the end of the story? The end of the story is, what? He pays a fine?

You guys are letting pedophiles out of prison every day. You guys are bailing out people burning down cities.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

STU: You care about whether he misrepresented how much his apartment costs?

Are we really supposed to believe that?

GLENN: No, no, no. Try this. Try this.

Feds just charged 47 in an alleged scheme to steal $250 million from the pandemic food program.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: This government was paying scammers 250 -- absolutely. We're -- we're making the greatest meals ever. I don't know. I think that's one you can point out, and say, yeah. There seems to be a real problem.

How about the people that used their PPP loan, to -- to bail out their business, that they didn't own, because they were in prison!

I mean, really? Really?

STU: How about this one? Because it goes back to her state. Letitia James' state. The Minnesota story, I think you mentioned was $240 million.

GLENN: Oh, sorry.

STU: 240.

The reason why I know that is because in New York, $250 million, were spent on tech to fight covid, that no one uses, including 8,555 ventilators, at a cost of $166 million, 1,179 x-ray machines for $86 million. They're now stacked in warehouses across New York, with no plans to distribute them, or put them to any immediate use.

I also --

GLENN: I need an x-ray machine. Remember?

STU: Oh, that's right.

GLENN: For my doomsday scenario.

STU: Your home surgery kit.

GLENN: I have a home surgery kit. And it's a little more upscale than Operation. The game. It's not by Milton Bradley. But I need an x-ray machine. How do I get me one of them?

STU: Because they are available.

How about -- remember when, in the middle of the scandal, in the middle of the covid stuff, Andrew Cuomo came out. Doing his big press conferences. And yelling at capitalists for charging too much for hand sanitizer on Amazon. Certainly this whole scandal?

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

STU: So he did this big show. All right. We'll make -- hand sanitizer --

GLENN: New York hand sanitizer.

STU: Right. With slave labor from prison camps. Which is basically what they said they were going to do. He said it smelled like lilac and hydrangeas. And he said, he was going to make all of this. Now, of course, we found out later, he didn't actually make the hand sanitizer. They only bottled it. The actual prisoners bottled the hand sanitizer.

What's the update on that story? What happened with all of that? Remember how -- because hand sanitizer wound up being available pretty soon afterward, as far as I remember. Here's the end of that story, ready?

New York is already starting to dispose of 700,000 gallons of expired hand sanitizer. In 2020. By people serving time in New York prisons. A process that will take 44 weeks to complete! By shipping a whopping 168 trailer loads 130 miles from Unica to Rochester at a cost of $2.3 million. It's going to cost them $2.3 million. To throw out the hand sanitizer they made after that press conference. Which was universally praised by the media.

GLENN: Unbelievable. But let's worry what happened to JPMorgan Chase. Because they believed this was the most beautiful, spacious, billion square acre apartment. In all of New York.

That's crazy. I mean, it is -- it's a mental disorder.
