Three Things You Need to Know - September 20, 2017

Here's what we know about the Mexico City earthquake.

One hundred miles from Mexico City, the ground began to shake violently. Only seconds later, the capitol city experienced a 7.1 magnitude earthquake.

The shaking was prolonged and violent.

As of this morning, rescuers are still working to dig people out from under the rubble. Here’s what we do know:

140 people have been reported dead. That number is expected to rise.

More than 40 buildings collapsed including at least two schools.

What made yesterday’s events so jarring was that many Mexicans had attended memorial services that morning to mark the 32nd anniversary of the 1985 earthquake that killed as many as10,000 people.

This earthquake also came less than two weeks after an 8.1 magnitude earthquake killed 91 people and destroyed thousands of homes.

But we saw something else yesterday too: the strength of the human spirit.

Neighbor helping neighbor. A community coming together to heal.

A nation moved to action. We’re not so different after all.

The scariest part of Trump's UN speech didn't come from Trump.

Something terrifying happened during President Trump’s speech at the UN yesterday. It wasn’t anything he said. Rather, it was the reaction to what he said:

I wanted to stand up and applaud, but the majority of the members within the assembly just stared at Trump as if he’d spoken an alien language. It was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.

This is what’s so scary. 75 percent of them probably believe wholeheartedly that socialism is the answer. Venezuela was to be their crown jewel. It’s the Progressive Paradise.

Everyone in Hollywood praised Venezuela: Sean Penn, Oliver Stone, Naomi Campbell, Michael Moore.

Bernie Sanders, on his Senate web site, claims that the American dream is more apt to be realized in Venezuela.

Why does everyone love Venezuela? Because they have never lived there.

What does this socialist utopia actually look like?

Inflation nears 800 percent. Basic goods like toilet paper are severely rationed. The nation with the largest oil reserves in the world has to import oil and suffers from gasoline shortages. Finding food every day has become a struggle.

But this is what progressives across the world call paradise. Misery is their politics. Just ask Bernie Sanders. The lack of food is a sign of success:

Ask a Venezuelan what it’s like to deal with food rationing. What’s it is like to stand in line for food, get turned away, and then go dig through the trash in a last-ditch effort to feed your family.

Ask them what it’s like to watch their leaders rip up the constitution and seize even more power and control. Power and control. In the end, that’s what the progressive socialist agenda is all about.

Have a nice day.

That's it!


POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
