Mugabe Coup-Ed up on House Arrest After Military Take-Over

Zimbabwe is under military control after the country’s military put leader Robert Mugabe under house arrest … something the Zimbabwe army claimed in a TV statement wasn’t a military takeover.

On today’s show, Glenn broke down what happened and pointed out why this shift has all the marks of a military coup. While Mugabe is infamous for his violations of human rights, being ruled by military leaders may or may not be an upgrade for Zimbabwe.

“There’s always another monster,” Glenn said.

GLENN: Yesterday on the radio, people heard this. This is not a military takeover. I repeat, this is not a military takeover.

That's what the Zimbabwe defense forces announced yesterday when their military vehicles and more than 100 troops crowded the capitol and at least three explosions were set off. Robert Mugabe's army explained that they were only targeting criminals around Mugabe, who are committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country, and they're just trying to bring justice.

Uh-huh.

Yeah, probably a military takeover. The turmoil within Mugabe's army comes after the 93-year-old dictator, who I thought was dead long ago, many people wish he were, fired his deputy and long-time ally. This happened last week. That guy had the military support.

The deputy was next in line to run the country, in the event -- and it's never going to happen, of Mugabe's death.

When he was swiftly dismissed, Mugabe appointed his wife to that role instead. Hmm.

Now, that usually is a big no, no. You know, within unstable dictatorships. It's kind of like dictatorship 101. You don't willy-nilly appoint your wife to the next highest position at the last minute and screw your friends over and don't expect some tanks to be rolling your way.

For 37 years, Mugabe has ruled supreme without a whisper of a military coup. But it looks like that's about to change finally. Maybe, maybe this will be a good thing. I have to imagine anyone overthrowing Robert Mugabe could do a better job for Zimbabwe. But I could be wrong. There's always a bigger monster.

A spokesman for the Zimbabwe defense forces announced that as soon as we accomplish our mission, we expect the situation to return to normalcy.

The problem is, the people of Zimbabwe have never known normalcy. Whatever the Zimbabwe defense forces idea of normal is, most likely it is nowhere close to the normal that we know.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
