Three Things You Need to Know – March 6, 2018

Political Dumpster Fire

If you’ve ever been curious what a dumpster fire looks like, all you had to do was tune in to MSNBC or CNN yesterday and watch the two networks interview former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg. What progressed throughout the day is hard to describe. It was almost as if Nunberg was having a complete and total meltdown, the media was aware of it, and they put it on display just to show everyone how crazy this former Trump aide actually is.

Nunberg has, let’s just say, a little bit of history with the Trump team. He’s been hired by the campaign, fired, then rehired, fired again, and he’s had public squabbles with Trump staffers like Corey Lewandowski and Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Some might say, when it comes to Donald Trump, he has a dog in this fight.

Nunberg was questioned by Muller’s investigators recently as part of the Russia investigation, and he did what anyone with an axe to grind or a dog in the fight would do… he ran straight to the mainstream media. What followed was one of the most sensationalized crap shows I’ve seen in a long time. At no time did he give any evidence, but - in interview after interview - he implied that Muller quote “may have” something on President Trump, BUT - and this really makes his point strong here - quote “I don’t know that for sure.”

Hmm, ok Sam, if you don’t know then why say anything at all? Maybe because all this is some crazy drunken sideshow? He pressed on with Jake Tapper. If you were hoping for something more substantial to back up his allegations, you - instead - got this doozy of a statement: “They know something on [Donald Trump] … I don’t know what it is, and perhaps I’m wrong, but he did something.”

What?! They know something… I don't know what… maybe I’m wrong… but uh yeah, he totally did something.

This was a total meltdown. In between making wild baseless accusations, Nunberg took personal shots at members of the Trump team, AND voiced his intention to ignore a subpoena from Robert Muller. Now, how does that make sense? If your goal is to hurt Trump and his team, wouldn’t you be all onboard cooperating with the Russia investigation? Of course he would, and the media knows this. They knew exactly what they were doing in putting this guy on the air all day yesterday.

Nunberg had no business being interviewed. His accusations were baseless, he had clear motive to want to hurt Trump - who in his words said “treated me like crap” - , and his wild bravado about defying Muller was obviously meant to grandstand. The media knew this, but they ate it up like a kid eating lucky charms on Saturday morning. They weren't looking to report any news. All they wanted to do was livestream a public meltdown from a guy that used to work for the President.

If Nunberg dodges Muller’s subpoena, throw his butt in jail. And to the media - and I feel like I have to say this every day - I’ve just about had enough of you.

Thad Cochran Will Resign April 1st... No Joke

Senator Thad Cochran of Mississippi has announced he is retiring at the end of this month due to health issues. He is 80-years-old and the tenth longest-serving Senator in U.S. history. He has been a Senator since 1978, when he was the first Republican to win a statewide election in Mississippi in over a century.

Cochran’s retirement means both Mississippi Senate seats will now be up for grabs this November. If Cochran had been a strong conservative, his longevity might be a good thing. Unfortunately, he has been a classic, big government, spendthrift Republican instead. And to make it worse, he is Chairman of the Appropriations Committee.

For conservative voters interested in replacing establishment Republicans with actual conservatives, a Mississippi state senator named Chris McDaniel provided a spark of hope when he almost beat Cochran in 2014. McDaniel is currently running a primary challenge against the junior Mississippi Republican senator, Roger Wicker (who is another old-school establishment guy). The timing of Cochran’s announcement stinks for McDaniel, and true conservatives, because McDaniel might have a better shot at winning the special election to replace Cochran than he would in unseating Roger Wicker.

By waiting until yesterday to announce his resignation, Cochran basically forced McDaniel to race against Wicker. Still, it’s possible McDaniel could switch races and run for Cochran’s seat.

Now, Republican Mississippi governor, Phil Bryant, has ten days to appoint an interim senator to replace Cochran in April. Conservatives shouldn’t get their hopes up – those close to Governor Bryant are already saying he won’t pick Chris McDaniel to be Cochran’s temporary replacement.

President Trump and Mitch McConnell are encouraging Governor Bryant to appoint himself as the interim senator. They’re paranoid about a race with McDaniel turning out like the Alabama Senate special election last November, in which a reliably Republican senate seat was lost to Democrat Doug Jones.

Then again, Cochran did set his resignation date as April 1st – so maybe he’s just trolling Chris McDaniel for April Fools.

SuperShe Island

How would you like to go on an exclusive wellness retreat off the coast of beautiful Finland?

There is a private island where you can escape your daily worries, the daily grind of life, oh and of course, the male gaze and toxic masculinity.

It’s called “SuperShe Island.”

Owner Kristina Roth has just created the ultimate “female only” island.

Kristina bought the island to offer a safe space for women to network and learn from each other without the critical male eye watching their every move.

She’ll only take 10 applicants at a time. She says she will pick attendees based on their personality—and of course, their reproductive organs.

She says, "The number one thing that's important for me is that you have an amazing personality — like upbeat, cool personality — because you're on an island. That's what's going to make it fun and exciting for everyone."

I don’t think Kristina understands what happens when you put a bunch of girls on an isolated island. I’m going to take a guess that it’s not going to be all sunshine and lollypops.

Incredibly, Kristina’s SuperShe Island is getting bashed for not being truly feminist.

Some are bashing the retreat as “a rich white woman’s island just for rich white women.” What about minorities and trans people?

Kristina responded by claiming, “If you identify as a woman then that’s great. We’re not exclusive.”

So, men technically can apply.

But why would anyone ever want to?

Men and women have coexisted since the beginning of time. Quite frankly, we need to continue if we want the human species to survive. It’s unhealthy, unfair, and dare I say sexist, to promote the idea that men and women should literally isolate themselves from each other.

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?

THESE TOP 10 Founding Fathers' quotes help us remember America's original vision

Independence Day is one of the few days when Americans come together to celebrate our country and the continued vision that our Founding Fathers crafted in 1776. But what is that vision? It seems with every passing July 4th, Americans lose even more of a sense of what the original intent of our nation was supposed to be. It's becoming increasingly important to read the Founding Fathers in their own words and to remember the vision that they cast for our nation. Here are our TOP 10 favorite Founding Fathers' quotes to help us remember their original views of government, freedom, and the American vision.

We live in a dark time, so it is more important now than ever to make sure you are anchored to the truth.

Glenn was recently on the “Chicks on the Right” podcast for a follow-up interview after Amy Jo Clark and Miriam Weaver joined Glenn on his podcast back in March. The three dove into a lively discussion that touched on several things happening in Glenn's personal life, and Glenn delved into the importance of truth in our increasingly Orwellian society.

Glenn told the “Chicks” about his upcoming first novel for young adults, Chasing Embers, which is set in a dystopian world where the wildest WEF fantasies have come true and history has been completely rewritten. Glenn revealed that he was inspired to write the book while reading Karl Marx. He reflected on how Karl Marx was, and still is in many cases, considered this articulate revolutionary, but when compared to the words of the Founding Fathers, his articulation and arguments pale in comparison. He wanted to explore the idea, "What if Jefferson was the revolutionary again, not Marx?" Chasing Embers asks how we preserve the philosophies of the founders and the values of the Constitution so that our children have a chance to discover it if the world turns completely upside down.

Glenn also discussed how important it is to learn history, to anchor yourself in truth, God, and the Constitution, and our responsibility to preserve them in the face of the dystopian movement that is increasingly encroaching on Western civilization. Glenn described the country as "suicidal" and posited whether we can rein in a nation that is hurdling itself towards the brink. He said we can do our part to help, but unless the country decides it wants to live, it will die. We have to be prepared to endure such a scenario with our morals intact and the necessary knowledge to rebuild on hand.

Towards the end of the conversation, Glenn revealed some of the lessons he's learned in his decades on radio. He said that you have to know yourself--both the good and bad--be ready to defend your beliefs, and admit when you are wrong.
