Trump Made the Right Decision on Jerusalem, but Now It’s Time for the Next Step

President Donald Trump has been both praised and criticized for his decision this week to formally recognize Jerusalem, a site of tension for Israelis and Palestinians, as the capital of Israel.

“This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality,” Trump said. “It was also the right thing to do.”

Glenn praised Trump’s fortitude in being able to make a decision on Jerusalem, something past presidents have been delaying for decades, but he also offered a caveat: Trump’s words must translate into action by moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“He’s got to move the embassy,” Glenn said. “You’ve got to move the embassy, and you’ve got to move it before he’s out of office.”

GLENN: Two words I can't believe I'm saying them today, Donald Trump delivered. And here's why I can't believe I'm saying this.

STU: Three words, technically. I just want to --

GLENN: Yeah, sorry. Trump delivered. I'm not good with math. The reason why I can't believe it is, you know, I'm going to call him out when he's wrong. I'm going to call them as I see them, and I'll praise him when he's right. There's no way in hell -- I think on record, there's no way in hell he's going to do any of this with Israel. He did it. He formerly recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and vowed to move the US embassy to the holy city of Jerusalem.

DONALD: Through all of these years, presidents representing the United States have declined to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. In fact, we have declined to acknowledge any Israeli capital at all.

But today, we finally acknowledge the obvious, that Jerusalem is Israel's capital. This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It's something that has to be done.

GLENN: Okay. All right. That's -- that's -- it's going to end the same way as the Ronald Reagan thing did. Either in horrific flames of fire, or really good things. Ronald Reagan stepped to the plate and said, this is an evil empire. It needs to be destroyed.

That was a pretty brave and bold statement to make. And pretty controversial. This is the same kind of statement. Very brave move. One that he's going to be praised for and vilified for. I'm glad he did it.

Now, dash of skepticism. It really means nothing more than the Bear Ears memorial that Obama set up, if he doesn't actually move the embassy. He's got to move the embassy. Because otherwise, the next president can come in, yeah, he was crazy.

So you got to move the embassy. And you got to move it before he's out of office. Which, God knows, it could be another six years. It could be tomorrow. We don't know. So he's got to move the embassy. But as of yesterday, I stand corrected, and I'm happy to have been wrong on this one.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
