Caller Describes the Deteriorating Circumstances in Venezuela: ‘They Are Killing People’

As things continue to deteriorate in Venezuela, one caller joined Glenn on air to discuss the utter desperation his family is facing in Venezuela and how important he believes it is that the media continue to cover this crisis.

In an emotional phone call, Andre from Florida shares the pride he feels in coming to America and how much he appreciates a free press while highlighting the absolute heartbreak he feels for his home country.

“It’s really tough. They are killing people in the streets,” Andre said.

“Andre, how can we help? How can somebody help?” Glenn asked. Andre said that he feels there hasn’t been enough media coverage and that if we truly want to help, we must continue to discuss what’s unfolding. Venezuelans lack independent media and journalists and rely solely on the government to receive any information about the country’s downward spiral.

“But I know that it’s tough because I speak with my family every single day. They are killing teenagers in the street,” said Andre who worries about the safety of his family in the country.

“I came here about two years ago, and I mean, thanks to you, I think I understood finally what makes America the greatest country on Earth. And I feel so bad that things are so tough in Venezuela,” Andre said.

Since moving to America, Andre says he’s found something he can believe in. “I found values. I found principles. I found so many things that they (sic) were just unknown to me.’

When asked about how his family is doing, Andre revealed that every month he and his aunt send boxes and boxes of food and medicine but fear the Venezuelan government will seize it at any time.

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

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

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

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