Chalkboard Lesson: Timeline — America’s Slide Toward a ‘Total-Control’ Government

On today’s show, Glenn continued this week’s chalkboard series on ‘antifa.’ Technically speaking, antifa stands for anti-fascist, but modern-day antifa members claim to be anti-government, anti-police, and anti-establishment, touting slogans like “Smash the system” and “By any means necessary.” In many ways, antifa groups in the US have borrowed their purpose from their European counterparts. But America’s governmental system was set up to be (and still is) different than the European model.

“The left and right, if you will, are actually anarchy and total control. That is the American system of left and right. This is the way we were set up. This isn’t the way that Europe is set up,” said Glenn, adding, “We have anarchy on one side, no government at all. What does that usually involve? The reason why people who say ‘smash the system’ are so dangerous is because it always ends in mob rule … you need enough government to be able to keep the mob at bay, to make sure there isn’t a strongman somewhere. But that’s all the government should do, protect your rights.”

Introducing a timeline, Glenn starts with the Articles of Confederation, our country’s ‘first constitution’ ratified in 1781. “We first had the Articles of Confederation but it was too close to anarchy,” explained Glenn. “It wasn’t strong enough to hold everything together. So we … in 1789 developed the Constitution and in 1791 we had the Bill of Rights.”

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.
