Here's What You Should Know About Trump’s Rollback on National Monuments

What happened?

President Donald Trump reduced the size of two national monuments in Utah that comprise millions of acres of protected land: Bears Ears National Monument and Grand Staircase-Escalante. The move is part of a review of all national monuments designated since 1996.

How much land is affected?

Bears Ears National Monument, which was created by President Barack Obama in 2016, is shrinking from 1.35 million protected acres to 200,000. Grand Staircase-Escalante will be reduced to half its current size to include a million acres in three zones.

Who’s happy about this?

Utah lawmakers, who have long fought for more state control over the land. Around two-thirds of the land in Utah is controlled by the federal government.

And who’s not?

Environmental activists who want the land protected from development and the Native American groups who lobbied for years for the protections to be put in place.

Glenn’s take:

The mainstream media reaction is that Trump hates the environment. But that’s not what this decision was about – it was a somewhat conservative move to return the land to the state instead of keeping so much of it under federal control.

“Often, the local community actually needs the land to make things like, I don’t know, a living,” Glenn said sarcastically.

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.


Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?



During a campaign stop in Aurora, Colorado recently, a woman named Lauren Boebert confronted Beto O'Rourke about his recent statement that "hell yes" certain guns — like the AR 15 — would be confiscated during his presidency. Boebert said "Hell No," then explained to Beto why a gun confiscation will done nothing good for the safety of America.
