Texas 12-Year-Old’s Homework Asked, ‘How Comfortable Are You at a Gay Bar?’

What happened?

A Texas middle school is apologizing after sixth-grade students were sent home with a questionnaire assignment asking them to rank how comfortable they are with going to a gay bar or meeting a “female-to-male transsexual.”

The teacher who gave out the “inappropriate” 41-question assignment has been disciplined, according to the Birdville Independent School District.

“I wasn’t ready for my son to be exposed to these type of things,” said Ashley Brent, mom to a 12-year-old boy who brought home the assignment.

What were some of the questions?

Students were asked to rank how comfortable they were on a scale of 1 to 4 in these types of scenarios:

  • “Your dentist is HIV positive.”
  • “A friend invites you to a gay bar.”
  • “Your sister invites her new boyfriend home to dinner. He is a female-to-male transsexual.”

On today’s show, Pat and Stu talked about this story and other similar examples of teachers springing bizarre assignments on kids without warning their parents. All in the name of political correctness, of course.

Glenn: America MUST DO THIS BEFORE calling a Convention of States

While Glenn is still fully in support of our constitutional ability to hold a Convention of States, he explains why that he no longer thinks we should, at least not until until a few things happen first. Glenn and Stu debate whether Americans are ready to open up the Constitution — and truly surrender to God to fix our nation — or if a Convention would only be ruled by partisan politics...

GLENN: Welcome back to Mr. Stu Burguiere.

GLENN: Yeah. I was on vacation last week. Trying to keep up with the news, as much as I could.

You know, there's a lot to miss. You know. Because before I went on vacation, the queen passed away. And then when I came back from vacation, she still -- she still is not in her casket, to be wheeled around the country. Which is a very strange, odd thing, that I don't think humans should do. That's a whole different story.

I also saw, apparently, you withdrew your support for the Convention of States?

GLENN: Yeah.

Do you realize -- well, because I didn't plan on saying it. I had been praying on it. And I wasn't planning on saying anything on that day. Just kind of -- I was prompted in the course of something else we were talking about.

STU: Because we've talked about this as a real solution, as one of the only ways to get the country back on track.

GLENN: I know. I know. I know.

STU: And now you're coming out.

Are you announcing you're a Russian asset, just like Donald Trump? After all this time? Is that what you're doing?

GLENN: Yes. Natasha, they've caught on to me. I've got to fly now.

STU: Yeah. No. I think this is -- as I said, I still fully support the Article V -- as -- as it is. I fully believe that that is something that we can do.

I do believe that's the last cord to rip. But I also am very, very concerned. This is not a -- a constitutional problem. This isn't a political problem.

This is a -- a soul problem.

Our country has gone off the rails.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I happen to believe, that we are in the Third Great Awakening.

STU: The third grade awakening? Like we're all third graders now?

GLENN: No. Third Great Awakening.

STU: That's what it seems. Because I could go for either one of those versions.

GLENN: Yeah, third grade awakening. Where they wake you up. It's time for milk. That's good.

But, no. The third great awakening. I think we're in that. But, you know, the first and the second, both took about 50 years, to do. And the second one, ended in the Civil War.

So I -- you know, I think we are waking. We're at the beginning of that.

But this is something that people without humility, should not open up.

Now, this is -- what's weird is. And I have to make it clear.

The people who were doing the Convention of States, I love them. I think they're a great organization.

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: I think they really have their heart in the right place, and I understand that they -- you know, what they're doing. I am a supporter of them.

But I can't personally endorse it now. Because I am worried, that we are not the people of character, to open that sacred document up.

STU: Oh, we're definitely not the people of character, to do anything.

GLENN: Yeah. Right.

STU: We are a trash heap right now.

GLENN: So we have --

STU: But I thought -- we talked to them before, and I thought a lot of this was addressed in the structure of the convention. You know, it's been a while since we talked about it in tail. You know, Mark Levin wrote a book about this. You know, he's -- and I remember this -- because of these concerns came up at the time. Who are we going to have making these decisions? This could go awry very easily. And it did seem like, I thought that was a pretty compelling argument, that the structure of the convention would prevent that.

GLENN: So it's not just the structure of it as well.

I mean, are we prayerfully approaching this?

I mean, I just didn't get up one morning and go.

I've been thinking about it. And I prayed about it. And I could be wrong. I could be wrong.

Because I know the people who are out there, swinging for this. Are good, decent people. They're really good people.

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: And, you know, David Barton, Wall Builders, they're really behind it.
So who am I to say?

STU: Yeah. And honestly, even when we were talking about this previously, the people who had concerns about it, also were good, prayerful people. I think it's one of those things, that there's a lot of disagreement on what can happen.

I honestly -- we've seen a lot of topics like this recently. Where people who generally agree on most stuff, wind up coming to totally different conclusions. And feel passionate about it, on things like this.

I am, I mean, worth future investigation, I think.
I think that you're totally right in your -- in your -- I think analysis of where we are as a country.

You know, like I -- this is another example from this past week. And I was watching it, sort of from afar. The situation where -- with DeSantis sending the illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard. Now, of course, number one, I think it's funny. That's the most important part of the strategy.

But, like, I have absolutely no problem with the policy of what Abbott has done or what DeSantis has done. Or what -- I'm totally fine. All the arguments against it, are the same arguments we make in Texas every day.

GLENN: Yeah, and I'm tired. It's really driving me crazy. Going. We're not Texas. We're Washington, DC. We're not Texas. What does that even mean?

STU: Yeah. Right. Exactly. You're not a small border town that's overwhelmed by hundreds of thousands of immigrants every few weeks. So I have no sympathy at all for the left on this. The one thing that I think, and this is essentially why you're hearing it.

What is somewhat effective, maybe as an argument. Is I don't want to be lying to people about it.

I don't want to tell them, like, hey. You're going somewhere. And it's not -- hold on. Let me -- let me qualify this. There's very little evidence, that anyone lied to anyone. There are a couple of claims from the immigration attorneys, in Martha's Vineyard. Take this with a grain of salt.

GLENN: Yeah. I take it with a whole salt mine.

STU: Yeah. I don't believe it. But it were true. I would have a problem lying to the illegal immigrants about this. Even though they're here illegally, and don't deserve any of the treatment that they --

GLENN: But it's not like we're sending them to Minnesota.

STU: Martha's Vineyard is awesome. It's a really great place to visit. But my point though was, I heard some people on the right saying, I don't care. Lie to them. Lie all you want.

STU: No, I don't want to be that person.

GLENN: And I think there is this disconnect certainly on the left, that have abandoned all -- all core principle at this point.

And I think there's a temptation on the right, to do similar things, because -- I'm not saying DeSantis even did this.

Again, to be clear. But because, look, they've gone so far, so we need to go so far. And whether we're going to stick with our principles or not.

Look, that's a relic of a past time.

And honestly, part of it, I understand.

Part of it, emotionally, I get. Right?

They're using these things. And we need to be able to fight fire with fire.

GLENN: There's nothing immoral about sending them to different places. You can send them any place in America. They're coming to America.
Why do they have to stop in Texas and Arizona and California?

STU: That's fighting fire with fire within the realm of principle. Right?

GLENN: Fine. Then spread the pain out.

STU: As DeSantis said, everybody should experience a piece of the burden here. Especially, if you're approving it.

GLENN: Especially if you're a sanctuary city. Yeah. When you're saying you're a sanctuary. That to me, is fighting fire with fire. Within the realms of principle, right?

Because I don't want to be the left. I don't want to be them. I don't want to be them. I would rather lose than become they believe.

GLENN: Yes. Well.

STU: If you about it beyond that, and you start breaking your principles in this battle. Then I think you've crossed a line I'm not comfortable with. Now, everybody else on earth, might be comfortable with it.

So it doesn't matter what I think. I will live on my lonesome probably under a bridge somewhere. I'm fine with it. That's my choice.

I think there is a line. And it's a line that this audience oar the years, has given healthy respect to. There have been plenty of times where we pushed back, and tried to do things. And not crossed lines of principle.

And I think that's important. And I honestly think both Abbott and DeSantis have done that here. Unless some of these wild claims are true, which we have no evidence of, at this point.

But, you know, I don't think there's any evidence they've done this. But I do think it is something that in a war, which is what it feels like on a day to take basis here. Not a literal war. But as close as you can get politically. It's tempting to go down these roads. We have to make sure that we don't. We have to make sure that we win. And we win in a way that holds up what we believe in. Because if you break that, you haven't won.

GLENN: Right. And when I see that as -- I mean, there's a couple of things, that I think, that I'm looking for.

Will the country humble itself, before it's forced to humble itself?

Because the humbling is coming. It's coming. You know. And if we humble ourselves before it's coming, maybe we turn the tide. You know, maybe -- maybe we are a little bit more kind, to each other, when it does hit.

We have to humble ourselves. And realize, you know, I was talking to Dennis Prager this weekend. He said, he was -- he's fascinated with my alcoholism. And I said, well, that's something weird to be fascinated by.

But he said, you know, how can alcoholics save the country? Because he was referring to me for years as saying, alcoholics will save the country.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: Just think of this as a 12 step program. First thing, the country has to do. Admit we have a problem. And not just the right or the left.

All of us. We have a problem.

This is not working. And we keep sending people in. And going, hey, you can be our savior. You're going to fix it all.

And they betray us for the most part. Exception, Donald Trump. He actually did do what he said he was going to do. But we are powerless over this. Okay?

We have a problem. And we're powerless over it. Now, you turn to a higher power.

And that doesn't mean somebody in Washington. That means somebody that is above all of it. All of it.

Well, that's a place for God. And you surrender to that. That -- that is the essential first step to healing and correcting any problem.


I got a problem. I've tried everything. Everything doesn't work. So I'm clearly not the guy to fix it. I'm pretty powerless on this. I'm taking my hands off the steering wheel. And I'm trusting a higher power. And I'm so broken and beaten down, that I'll do whatever you tell me to do. What do you want me to do, God? What do you want me to do? Because I'll do it.

We have to get there.

After that, it's, hey, make an inventory of all the people that you've hurt. You think we're willing to do that?

No. Because it would immediately go into, yeah. That's right. You are bad. See, I told you, you're bad. You're really wad. And you owe that person money.

No. No.

Can we just look at the things that we've done, and say, these were good? These were bad. These we should do more of, those we should do less of.

If we can get there, that would be even a bigger miracle. Because at the end of the 12, the 12th is, serve.

I'm going to serve my fellow man. I'll help people who have been struggling, just like me. And I'm doing it for politics or money or anything else.

I'm just going to do it, because I know I've been saved. So I want to help serve other people.

That's the -- that's the America that we should be striving towards. But who is talking about surrender?

And, by the way, surrender, another way to look at it again, for alcoholics. I didn't give in and go, you know what, I surrender. I'm powerless over alcohol. So I'm just going to drink some water.

That's not what it means. It means, surrender to a higher power. Because you keep trying to stop it. And you can't stop it.

STU: Yeah. It's not a surrender to a loss. It's a surrender so you can win.

GLENN: So you can win.

Democrat Party 'BECAME A RELIGION': How Biden LOST her vote

Sasha Stone "devoted [her] entire life" to the Democrat Party. But after voting for President Biden and realizing that he didn't return America to the "normal" she longed for, she has found herself somewhere she never thought she'd be: on the Glenn Beck Program. Stone, the author of the new piece, "How Joe Biden Lost My Vote," describes to Glenn the moment the Democrat Party became a "religion," what she learned from watching Trump rallies, and why she has "never seen anything like" the Left's "dehumanization" of Trump supporters: "I see the cult more on the Left than on the Right."

GLENN: Sasha Stone is with us now.

Sasha, how are you?

SASHA: Oh, I'm fine. Hi. Is this Glenn? Am I speaking with Glenn Beck? Wow.

GLENN: Probably something you never thought would do.

SASHA: Absolutely never something I thought I would do. But I am familiar with your thoughts and on certain things. I've watched you -- your interviews with different people, over the year.

GLENN: Yeah.

So, Sasha, you were -- you've been a diehard Democrat. Obama, Clinton, and -- and Joe Biden, right? You made videos about Joe Biden, trying to get him elected.

SASHA: Yes. I mean, I want to tell you, I devoted my entire life, unfortunately to this life. Whole years have disappeared from my life.

And as you get older, you really need that time. You need it back, and you can't get it back. So I guess I thought I was on some sort of crusade, spending every single day arguing on Twitter and Facebook and writing blistering pieces for Medium.

And I really did think I was on the right side, and I -- and I felt the same sense of purpose, that I think a lot of people on the left felt after Obama rose to power in 2008.

I think it just -- that's when it became. I know you're interested, in talking about religions and stuff like that. I think that's really the moment that it became a religion.

GLENN: Hmm.

I would agree with you. What -- what was it, that you voted for, with Joe Biden and you think your friends voted for with Joe Biden?

ALEX: Well, for me, it was strategic partly. But also I had an emotional connection to him, somehow. I had over the years. I don't know where it came from.

But I -- I liked him.

He reminded me of my dad. And I thought he was a good guy. But, you know, you have to remember, on our side. We actually -- it's weird that people with so much power and wealth, dominate almost every institution, would feel like they're the ones who are besieged.

You know, that they're the oppressed side. But I think that's definitely what we convinced ourselves, that we were stopping Hitler.

And I believe that Joe Biden was the only one that could do it.

But I did get a lot of heat from my -- my friends who didn't think Biden was the guy.

And I feel sort of somewhat guilty about that. That I didn't see it. I thought, he'll win. That will be fine. And everything will be -- everything will be back to, quote, unquote, normal in America. And what that meant, was rolling back the forward motion of this country, to the Obama administration. To the Obama era. I think that's what everybody was thinking. But what I've learned in the past few years, is you can't go back. You know, you have to keep moving forward. There's no other option, really. You try to hold on to the past, you just will be selling things that people are no longer interested in. But wouldn't that be -- that's what Joe Biden says he's selling. And Barack Obama is part of the plan here. And moving his vision forward. Isn't that what he did?

SASHA: Yeah. Absolutely. And I think that's the problem. They are so desperately trying to cling to the utopia that we've all built. That they lost site of most Americans. The reality of most Americans. The reality that most Americans have changed. The world has changed. The left has changed. And I don't think they see that. They're just desperate to hold on to the path. And I think they see it as -- and I've started to see it, the fight between Obama's America and Trump's America. Which is a little like the -- the moment that, you know, back in the 60s, when they were switching from JFK, to Nixon. Nixon was sort of like the disrupter.

And then eventually, that moved to Reagan in 1980, and then the whole pendulum shifted to the right.

I think that's where we are right now. We're in that struggle phase of the disrupter that's breaking up the status quo. As the pendulum is starting to swing to the right. But it will be a while before we get there. And it might not get there, if the Democrats hold on to power. They're not going to let that happen.

GLENN: This is -- I'm sure we disagree still on a lot of stuff. You wouldn't consider yourself a conservative? You're just a -- a traditional liberal, I'm guessing?

SASHA: Well, I am in sort of a strange place. I was telling one of my best friends. Because my friends basically no longer speak to me. Most of them don't. Because we don't really have anything to talk about.

GLENN: Yeah.

SASHA: But I kept saying no. And all this time, my policies haven't changed in my mind. The one area where my mind has changed a little bit is abortion. I used to be one of those people, you know.

But I've seen the other side of it. I've seen things from the perspective of the right now. And I understand why this is something they've been fighting for decades, you know. So I do struggle with these things. I find myself of an in between place. I'm not really sure where I would go politically, you know -- I live in California, so it doesn't really matter anyway.

It's such a Deep Blue state, that my vote is meaningless.

You know, so I don't have to -- like, if I lived in Pennsylvania or Arizona, you know, honestly, I'm pretty sure, it would be just voting red.

I voted for the recall. And I voted for Larry Elder for that. So, you know, I'm just one of those independents that is going to take every election. And decide on the spot.

No. I'm not a traditional conservative. The way that you are, for instance.

GLENN: Yeah.

SASHA: You know, I don't have that sort of sense of purpose, I think, that a lot of people on the right have.

GLENN: Yeah. So what was it, that broke the camel's back?

SASHA: Well, I'm not really sure what happened in my brain, that changed the way I followed the world. But I know it happened in 2020. I know it happened once the protests and the riots broke out. And watching the media cover it up. And change the story and the narrative. And then as we headed into the election, I just kept seeing how there was an administrative state, that was taking over the Democratic process. That's how I saw it anyway.

And I was sort of blown away, by that. I had never seen it like that, before. But there was so much money and power, bringing down a duly elected president, that they didn't like.

GLENN: But you didn't like Donald Trump. Or did you is this?

SASHA: Well, that was the hard thing. And the weird thing. Is that when I decided, to -- you know, you -- you talk about this a lot, actually, Glenn.

Which is the dehumanization of whole groups of people, that is reminiscent of Nazi Germany. And I felt, when I was on Twitter, I was part of that.

And it gave me a chill, that I was dehumanizing a whole group of people. And I thought, where does this end? Where does all of this hatred every single go?

You know, they think the right is the side with the hate. But they're not. It's the left.

And so I started -- it's been my way of trying to get to know this world. I began watching Trump rallies. And I watched all -- still to this day, I've seen every single Trump rally. You know, looking for that smoking gun that would say, yes. He's a terrible racist, fascist, selling hate. But I didn't see that with Trump. In fact, it's hard to watch him not like him. Because he's charming and charismatic. And funny.

GLENN: Funny. People that really hate him. And they've missed a really good time. On his rallies. He's funny. He's very funny.

SASHA: He was really funny. And it was more than that. I was in such a dark place. And the only -- nobody believes me on this. But the only moments of joy I had, was watching those rallies. Everybody was happy. Kind of like the people of Whoville, when the Grinch has taken away all their toys. And Christmas trees. And everything. And he's waiting to watch them suffer.

But they don't. They're happy. And I was watching this -- and then I started to look forward to his rallies.

Okay. Let's see this. The music would start. And he would come out, and it was just a love fest. Of people who had hope, that he gave them hope. And I didn't see the cult. You know, I see the cult more on the left, than I do on the right. And people don't know this about Trump. But he makes a lot of jokes at his own expense.

And -- and, you know, when I explain this to people, like the one where he says, the guy -- one of the governors, or something, plucked a hair off his head. And he said, and we went looking for that hair. Because he couldn't refuse to lose one hair. But he's always making jokes at his own expense. Jokes about his vanity. And he's funny.

GLENN: So hang on. But you watched all of these. And yet, you voted and made videos about Joe Biden. Right?

SASHA: No. I mean, I had done all that before. I was on the Biden train. Yeah. In 2019. And as I was heading into the 2019 election. I was talking to my friends. I had two friends that were Trump haters.

They won't even speaking to me about Trump. They call him evil. His supporters must be terminated, and stuff like that. I said, you know what the word exterminate was used for, don't you? In regards to people.

And that did shut them up for a minute. But they really -- they're so full of hate, I've never seen anything like this, in my entire life, honestly.

That kind of dehumanization. So what I kept saying, I'm not so sure about Biden. I don't think he should be president.

And what's the alternative?

Trump was way worse. And I said, I don't know. I'm seeing this sort of bizarre new religion that's overtaking the left. And he's going to usher that into government, and that's really dangerous. And he's old. I mean, not old, as that's a bad thing. But I could say see that he was declining. You know, since I saw him at a luncheon in 2019.

He was already starting to decline mentally. And I had seen my dad go through dementia I can't a year before. And I was recognizing a lot of the same downward patterns that my dad went through. And they just shut me down.

And, honestly, Glenn, to tell you the truth, I do have a business that I run that is a Hollywood business.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

SASHA: No. I'm just saying, I'm flirting with disaster here. If I had voted for Trump, let's say. My career would be -- I wouldn't make another time, ever. If they ever found out, right? So I didn't vote for Trump. Vote for Biden, and I did it for that reason, honestly. And I don't know where I am politically. I have to just do some soul searching to really figure that out. Because I don't really know at the moment.

GLENN: All right. Hang on. How much time do we have with you, Sasha?

SASHA: As much time as you would like.

GLENN: Okay. Good. Yeah, I would like to see if we could get another 20-plus minutes out of you if you don't mind, if you've got that time.
SASHA: No, that's fine.

GLENN: Back in just a second. One minute and back to Sasha Stone.

There's an old saying about charity, which goes a little like this, give until it hurts, and then give a little bit more. I believe that, and I suspect you believe that as well. Use a word that sometimes the left doesn't like: Sacrifice.

You do it for the right causes. We sacrifice for one another.

That's great. Now, what do you sacrifice for? What do you really believe in?

Well, I know that our police officers put themselves in harm's way every single day. And they're being attacked. I know that fire firefighters do the same. I know that soldiers do the same. The Tunnel2Towers Foundation was a charity that was formed after 9/11. And it understands this solemn sacred mandates, to care about, and care for. So when a first responder or a military service member does not come home. And young children are left behind. Tunnel2Towers pays off their mortgage to lift the financial burden from this family. Help these heroes and these families, join Tunnel2Towers in its mission to do good in their honor. Donate $11 a month in T2T.org. We want the government to do less. Then we have to do more. That's T2T.org.

GLENN: So, boy. You are in a nasty predicament. You are in California. Your business is tied to Hollywood. God bless you.

SASHA: Uh-huh yep.

GLENN: But you're not shy about things now. You have a great Substack.

SASHA: Thank you.

GLENN: And you wrote an article, how Joe Biden lost my vote.

And it was -- it was heartening to see somebody that had taken their own education, and decided, this might take me places, I don't want to go. But I want to know the truth. Is that how you would describe what you did?

SASHA: Yeah. That's an absolutely brilliant way of describing it. You know, that is where -- that is where my mind has taken me. It's taken me down a lot of rabbit holes over the years. Watergate. The Salem witch hunt trials. World War II. I'm a fanatic for that.

And, you know, when I find that something doesn't seem quite right. You know, I have to sort of investigate it. And I feel like, that the truth matters to me. This is what I've found now in my life. Is that that matters more than just about everything, except for my daughter probably. Maybe my dogs. But it matters, you know, that we see the truth. That we can speak the truth. That I can speak the truth. I grew up in a country. You know, the left was always the counterculture. So we were encouraged to speak the truth, always.

And now I'm being asked to modify my version. You know, to believe a lie. A lot of lies about people.

And I feel like, the only thing that really matters to me right now, is giving some relief to the other half of the country. To the people who are being treated so terribly.

On almost every level. You know, once I started to get to know this world. I began watching documentaries. And the Oscar race. Because that's what I read about, the Oscars. And I just noticed, how they reflected only one point of view. And how limiting that was for them. They can't tell the story of the working man, anymore. Like they used to be able to. Because the working man is most likely going to be a Trump supporter.

GLENN: And you never saw that, when you were in the bubble.

SASHA: No. And that was the weird thing. Is when I realized I was in a bubble. I kept trying to tell people, I can't talk to you, I'm in the bubble. They thought I was a lunatic. They thought I lost my mind.

I sounded crazy to them. And, you know, I've thought about it a lot. I've been online for 28 years. I was an early adopter. Got online in 1994. Built a website in 1999. So I know the internet well.

And I have to conclude, that a lot of this has to do with how we migrated on to social media. And become -- you know, in our own little eco systems. Where, you know, on Twitter, they only get news that they want to hear. So it distorts their thinking.

That's why I had to cut off the news completely. Because even if I watch one news story on the left. They can completely persuade me, to think about something a different way. But it's one thing if you're getting that in a different way. And deciding for yourself. And it's another thing when you're only watching the one version. And I just found that honestly, the more critical thinkers. The more intelligent thinkers. Oh, this is so terrible to say. But they're on the right now. They're not on the left anymore. The left has become a movement that they believe they have all the answers now. And the answers are found in ranking people by race and gender, not by class or economics. And --

GLENN: Or by character.

SASHA: Or by character, right! Even though, if you go into the Trump world, you will see it's incredibly diversity. It's not just white people. And that's the next piece I'm about to right. Is about that. Because I think it's such a crazy thing to watch them stereotype and characterize people, that doesn't align with reality.

Are the world's SOARING energy prices BY DESIGN?

Russia's war in Ukraine is not the only reason energy prices are skyrocketing worldwide. "This is by design," Glenn argues, and the fault of elites around the world who think they know better than the rest of us. As they play a green energy version of "Game of Thrones," Glenn warns, "winter is coming" for the rest of us.

This is the largest transfer of wealth ever. And it's not going to the little guy.

It is going to the big guys.

This is a massive change in the entire western world. It is -- it is happening.

I -- I want you to know that what is happening with our fuel -- if you're going to pump the gas, you've seen that our fuel price is down.

However, that's just because we're draining the oil from our strategic reserves.

We are sitting here at a time, for the first time in -- since I was in high school. Are we worried about possible nuclear war?

And yet, we are draining our entire strategic oil reserve.

We have auctioned off another 10 million barrels, and we're delivering the oil from November 1st, through November 30th.

So we're bringing this -- we're releasing all of this to our own detriment. And why are we doing it?

We're only doing it, because the election is here.

And if -- if it does continue, into December and January, that then is just putting us behind the eight ball, God forbid something happens. This is immoral, what's going on. In Europe, what a surprise. They -- the EU has now proposed a supply chain emergency powers act.

Whenever a government asks for emergency powers, be aware.

The companies now in Europe, are going to be made to prioritize production of key products and stockpiled goods, under draft EU rules, that would give Brussels emergency power to tackle supply chain crisis.

Is your solution more government?

If your solution is more government, and more emergency powers, then by definition, you are on the fascistic side.

If you believe in the free market, if you believe in the average person, and reducing the burden on the average person, from a federal government, then you are not on the fascistic side.

They're saying, listen to this. We need new tools that allow us to act fast, and collectively. At whatever kind of risk we might face.

Hmm. Okay. That's good. Sure. Now, what's happening?

Because of not the war. But because of the Paris accords, France and all of Europe started going to green energy. Renewable energy. It is not stable, nor can it produce the amount of energy that is needed. Then you add one crisis on top. One.

You don't have a secure life if you are only based on one -- one source. If you only have -- there's no backup for your entire life. You're in trouble. You're in real, real trouble.

Right now, they are shutting factories down. And they're shutting these factories down, because they can't afford the fuel to keep them running.

And there's a great story from Yahoo finance today. Firewood is the new gold. The new gold.

STU: What?

GLENN: Firewood.

Right now, countries in Europe are facing a very, very cold winter. The possibility of no energy, so people -- theft and firewood are the two biggest things right now. People are -- people are being broken into. Their houses are being broken into. People are stealing whatever they can.

And people who are trying to survive, are just holding on to firewood.

The energy prices in Europe, have climbed as much as 1,000 percent. 1,000 percent.

Now, if the people in charge of the EU actually cared, they would see what a disaster the Paris accords have been, and they would back away.

But they're not. Right now, as they're asking for emergency powers, the EU is upgrading its commitment to the Paris Agreement climate target. So they're saying, we're going to reach it even faster than promised.

What does this mean for us? Why are you paying for -- why are you paying the price you're paying at the gas pump?

We have more oil than Saudi Arabia. Why are you about to pay what you're going to pay, for heat, if you have gas heat? Why?

Why are you paying so much for natural gas or LP? Why?

We have more natural gas and LP than -- than anybody, than anybody.

We can put more natural gas into a tank, and put it at your house, or run a line to your house, than anybody else.

Why are you paying for more? Natural gas prices have doubled, just this year.

The price now for fuel and for an hour of power at your house, is up 124 percent. In New England, up 96 percent.

Why? Because the elites feel that their solution is the right solution. The problem is, the elites!

The people who think they know better than you. I don't think I or anyone else knows better than you, for what you are facing. What is happening in Europe this winter, will be here next winter. Winter is coming.

And we now have politicians all over the world, that are just playing Game of Thrones. That's it. That's what this is all about.

DIGITAL DOLLARS and 3 more TERRIFYING economic changes happening RIGHT NOW

Glenn warned just days ago that governments would suggest a disturbing solution to the worldwide energy crisis: nationalizing energy companies. Now, Germany is weighing doing just that. Meanwhile, the Biden administration has recommended creating a digital dollar, England is talking about printing more money, and Russia and China are discussing creating a new currency. Glenn breaks down all these terrifying economic changes, plus President Biden's latest excruciating lie about inflation.

GLENN: So last night, our president was -- was on television, on 60 minutes. And it was an amazing softball game.

But the -- the president announced a couple of things. The pandemic is over. You know, he's -- I know. Did you know that?

STU: I didn't.

GLENN: Yeah. It's oar.

STU: I'm surprised to hear that. I've been saying it for a long time. I know you have as well, but I'm surprised to hear the president saying say that.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. He also says he invoices to get in control of inflation. But inflation is basically even. Here's cut four, please.

VOICE: Mr. President, as you know, last Tuesday the annual inflation rate came in at 8.3 percent. The stock market nosedived. People are shocked by their grocery bills. What can you do better, and faster?

BIDEN: Well, first of all, let's put this in perspective. Inflation rate month to month, was just an inch. Hardly at all.

GLENN: Stop. Stop right there. Month to month, is not how you measure inflation. He knows this. It's -- it's not 8.2 to 8.2 month to month. Meaning, it's flat. It's 8.2 percent higher than last -- what? September or August. Last August. A year ago.

So remember the high inflation that we all had, and we're all like, whoa. Prices are out of control!

It's up another 8.2 percent. It's not flat.


STU: An annualized rate.

GLENN: Gosh. These people. The lies. I don't know how they sleep at night. All right. Here you go. Next.

VOICE: Oh, you're not arguing that 8.3 is good news?

BIDEN: No, I'm not saying it's good news. But it was 8.2 or 8.24. I can make it sound like, all of a sudden, my God, it went to 8.2 percent.

VOICE: That's the highest inflation rate, Mr. President, in 40 years.

BIDEN: I got that, but guess where we are? We're in a position, where in the last several months, it hasn't spiked. And it's been barely, it's been basically even.

GLENN: This is incredible.

He's basically arguing the fact that the inflation has hit the American people for a longer period of time, is good news.

GLENN: Yeah.

GLENN: Like, hey. You've dealt with this terrible problem for six months, or 12 months. Not just the one. So therefore, you shouldn't worry about it.

No. The problem is existing. And has peaked. And we've stayed right near the peak here for month after month after month. That just keeps hitting families over and over and over again. If it was just a one month spike, and it went away. It wouldn't be that big a problem. The problem is, it's going on for now a year or more, and he has seeming no way of controlling it.

GLENN: Okay. He went on to talk about gas prices. Look, core inflation. And you know this. I don't have to say this. If somebody has to do their own homework. Just go grocery shopping. Grocery shopping. What were you paying last year? What were you paying two years ago?

The prices are through the roof. Now, gasoline has come down off of its five-year high. Why?

Because gasoline, he has been draining our strategic oil reserves. Do we still have that chart, I showed last week?

Stu hasn't seen it yet. This is amazing. Our oil reserves are on a reverse hockey stick.

It is just plummeting down. And what are we going to do? We are getting rid of our strategic oil reserves. For, what?

In an election. That's why. Now, energy crisis in Europe, is going to spread here. Because it's not just what Russia is doing. That's not the only problem. The problem is. They are ahead of us, on all this ESG stuff. I told you -- I told you last week, and I've always told you, that I'm bad at timing. And I am.

I mean, this time, I was three days ahead. I couldn't believe it, when I opened up the paper on Saturday. And I am reading about how Germany is now nationalizing three of their power plants. Practice have I told you nationalization would come. Nationalization will come here, as well. And then we become Venezuela.

What's going to happen, is these energy prices are not going to be affordable by any stretch of the imagination. They're already going through this in England.

But England right now, is so focused and the media is so focused on, can we put the poor woman into the ground, please?

But they're so focused on all of this, and I don't know if the media will really ever tell you what's really going on. But they're now talking about printing in the central bank. The Bank of England. They're now talking about more money printing, because they didn't have the money in their coffers. To be able to pay for everybody's electric bills. Because they've promised. They would pay anything over 2500 pounds a month.

Well, so that's just going to drive inflation in the UK, through the roof. It will devalue their British pound.

And it will them to nationalize these companies. Because these companies will not be able to deal with the price caps.

And so the government will say, see, they can't do it. The free market just doesn't work. And they will nationalize. This is coming. It's coming here.

By the way, something else, you probably didn't know is last week, Putin met with President Xi. President Xi, they are meeting about a new currency.

I have told you for 20 years, the currency will be debased. It is -- that's why we have inflation. Our currency is being debased. So, what do you do about it?

Everybody told me, Glenn, it's never going to crash. We're -- we're the best out there. Everybody else's currency. And I've said for 20 years, do you really believe that no one at any time, will draw a line in the sand and say, enough is enough?

We can do better than this. That's exactly what China, Russia, and the brick countries are doing right now.

Developing a new currency. That will put us into a tailspin. And our government knows it. But they're not telling you. Why else would they be talking about a digital currency?

The White House in surprise of all surprises, has come out this weekend, and said, we recommend the fed goes to a new digital currency? A new digital dollar.

Why?

Because the dollar is going to collapse. I -- I urge you not to take anything that I have just said, as gospel. Look it all up, yourself. It is critical, that you know the truth. And you know how to find the truth.

The best way to find the truth, the best starting place, is, who is telling you, you have to listen to me because I have the truth. Or I have, quote, the science.

And you will not be allowed to question anything. Any question, of what I believe is true. Makes you my enemy.

Anyone who tells you that, does not have the truth on their side. That's the first test.

Then you have to go and explore all sides. And I urge you and your neighbors and your friends, to do that.

Time is becoming critical. So White House has said now, that they're going to create. They recommend creating a new digital dollar. We told you that they were employing to do that a year ago. A year and a half ago. Because it's already been done. I think it's called the Madison project. Probably the Hamilton project, up at MIT. Do you remember, Stu? It's been a while since we talked about this. But now they are releasing their first ever comprehensive framework, for responsible development of digital assets.

And Biden also said this, and I'm going to play this. And then I want to take a break. And comment on it.

Because when you are redesigning a world, and there are several people doing that now.

Everybody who is a globalist is doing that. They're dividing up the world.

And taking their own positions. And hunkering down.

We have -- unfortunately, we're on the receiving end of China. Now, China, do they have the will? Yes. Do they have the people? Yes. Do they have the money? No. But neither do we. But we are on a collision course now with China, and I'll give you the update on that. But first, let me play what Joe Biden said yesterday, cut one.

BIDEN: There's one China policy, and Taiwan makes their own judgments about their independence. We are not -- we're not encouraging or being independent, but that's their decision.

VOICE: But would U.S. forces defend the island?

BIDEN: Yes. If, in fact, there was an unprecedented attack.

VOICE: After our interview, a White House official has told us U.S. policy has not changed. Officially, the U.S. will not say whether American forces would defend Taiwan. But the commander-in-chief, had a view of his own.

VOICE: So unlike Ukraine, to be clear, sir. U.S. forces, U.S. men and women, would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion.

BIDEN: Yes.

GLENN: That the stable leadership you voted for? Back in 60 seconds.
