FLASHBACK: David Bowie’s inspiring advice for artists is also wisdom for life

Do you feel as if you’re treading water? You may be in the right place to create your best work.

The late, great artist David Bowie once shared some advice on art that also applies to life. When you want to make something great, you can’t set out to please other people – and you should feel out of your depth.

In a 1997 interview, Bowie said:

“I think it’s terribly dangerous for an artist to fulfill other people’s expectations; I think they produce – they generally produce their worst work when they do that. … Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in, go a little out of your depth, and when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.”

Watch the full clip (above) for the full quote along with Glenn and Stu’s comments.

GLENN: I have this old audio today from David Bowie. And I wanted to share it with you. If you're an entrepreneur or a self-made person, I think you'll find it inspiring as well. Listen.

VOICE: -- never plays the gallery -- I think -- but you never learn that until much later on, I think. But never work for other people at what you do. Always -- always remember that the reason that you initially started working was that there was something inside yourself that you felt, if a at that if you could manifest it in some way, you would understand more about yourself and how you co-exist with the rest of society.

And I -- I think it's terribly dangerous for an artist to fulfill other people's expectations. I think they produce -- they generally produce their worst work when they do that.

And if -- the other thing I would say is that if you feel safe in the area that you're working in, you're not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel you're capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don't feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you're just about in the right place to do something exciting.

VOICE: That you felt if you could manifest it in some way, you would understand more about yourself and how you co-exist with the rest of society.

And I think it's terribly dangerous for an artist to fulfill other people's expectations. I think they produce -- they generally produce their worst work when they do that. And the other thing I would say is that if you feel safe in the area that you're working in, you're not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel you're capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don't feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you're just about in the right place to do something exciting.

STU: And that's the story of the Dancing in the Dark video, a tragic chapter in global history.

GLENN: He did -- he talked about that. I watched a couple of videos from him today. He talked about that. He said, you know, I thought, hey, this is commercial. This is where it's at. He said, boy, was I wrong.

STU: And in a way, really, it's an example of what you don't do. He's describing, don't do the Dancing in the Dark video. Right?

GLENN: He is. He is. And he said, you don't learn that until too late.

STU: Yeah. And it's true. You have to go through that, I think, to actually figure it out.

GLENN: Yeah. You do. You do.

You know what I find interesting is, what was the 1960s? What was that all about? That was about the greatest generation coming home after complete decimation. I mean, just -- I don't think we can really even begin to understand what the rest of the western world was like after World War II. You know, we came back, and we started making big, huge cars with tailfins and everything else. Because we had the factories. We had the resources. We had the money. We had the gold. We had everything.

Europe didn't. You remember -- you know the three-wheeled cars that England made. Okay? They made the three-wheeled cars for two reasons. One, the government was out of control. But, two, they couldn't afford big cars. They couldn't afford anything of any size because they were broke.

They were destitute after the war. And so they didn't really start digging themselves out of that until '60s, '70s, and '80s. They didn't have the good times that we had in the '50s and the '60s, you know, up until the '70s. They didn't have those. So what was the 1960s -- what was that about? That was about the rejection of what they saw their parents build.

And their parents just wanted to come home and build this idyllic little space that didn't have any horrors in it. It didn't have what the Soviet Union had. It didn't have what Europe had just gone through, what Germany had gone through, what Spain was going through.

It was perfect. It was good. It was wholesome. And so, the kids knew, well, wait a minute. Hang on. My mom is not like that. There were problems in my house. But everybody is pretending because they're trying to create this image. And that's not what it is.

And so the kids rejected it. And that gave us the hippie generation. And that's what we've been doing. The hippie generation begat the excess.

So we have -- we have this crunch of the hippies and the people like Donald Trump. You know, that's the same generation.

One generation went, no, man, smoke dope. Free love, and rock on, Marx! The other went, you are an idiot. And went in to amass wealth and build something.

Okay. But unlike the previous generation, when they built something, they wanted to build something that lasts, they just wanted to build wealth. So you had, wealth is evil, and greed is good.

That's the '60s generation. So now the generation that I'm in, just watched them. And we were kind of the Forgotten Generation. And we just kind of watched them and did our own thing. But we were always just a little bit behind. So we begat children who saw that excess and that Marxism, and some of them are gravitating towards that. And the Marxism is -- is once again kind of cool because everybody who is living in these homes know, there's no meaning here.

It's why people who are younger are starting to feel like, I want to get rid of everything. I don't want to have all of that stuff. I don't want to have the life of my parents.

Just like the kids of the '60s did, they didn't want the life of their parents because they knew that was meaningless. They knew that it was -- it was being hidden by cocktails and Xanax. And now what's being hidden is being hidden by the drug of Facebook. It's not perfect. That's not what it is.

And so people are once again hungry for something real.

Expert gives the ACTUAL reasons why gas prices decreased

‘Falling gas prices give Democrats a sense of optimism for November,’ The Hill reported earlier this week. But that doesn’t mean Democrats deserve ANY credit. Financial expert Carol Roth, author of ‘The War On Small Business,’ joins Glenn to explain the ACTUAL reasons gas prices have dropped and the one way Biden actually is just making it worse. Plus, Roth and Glenn discuss whether the coming energy crisis could lead to the federal government nationalizing the entire industry…

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Carol Roth, the war on small business author. And former recovering investment banker, that actually can break things down and talk and explain what things mean to the regular schlubs of America.

Welcome, Carol. How are you?

CAROL: You know, just enjoying the Biden economy. How are you?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. That party yesterday was absolutely incredible. Incredible.
(laughter)
I mean, it was surreal. They were celebrating that the interest rate is coming down. Can you explain what happened with the interest rate numbers. The CPI numbers.

CAROL: All right. Well, James Taylor was there. So we saw fire. And we saw rain. We saw a revery hot CPI report yesterday. As we know, the CPI is one of the measures of inflation. And one of the measures of consumer inflation. We do know it's understated because they have messed with it, for the last several decades. To underplay it. But it's still a benchmark to sort of compare. It was considered hot by all expectations. We knew there was going to be some decline, in the headline number, because of the sharp decline in gasoline prices.

GLENN: Wait. Wait. But could you explain why the price of gasoline was going down?

CAROL: Sure. So before we get to the nitty-gritty.

GLENN: Yeah.

CAROL: So there were a couple of reasons why gasoline is come down. Some of it was our president pulling a little bit of a stunt, pulling oil out of our oil reserves. And putting it out in the markets, to kind of depress it. Some of it was artificial, because the gas taxes have been on hiatus in certain locales. But the biggest reason, that the gasoline prices are coming down. Because of the price of oil is coming down. And the biggest reason the price of oil is coming down is because the price of oil got too high.

It's just pure demand destruction. There's a saying in the commodities market, that the best cure for high prices, is high prices.

And that's we saw. Not only here in the United States, where people maybe decided not to take a road trip. Or reroute their lives. You know, so they're not using as much energy. And particularly gasoline. But also, on a global stage. Obviously, the prices are going through the roof, as we know in Europe. Completely self-inflicted.

But, you know, again, they're having to make those same choices. And then China, as we've discussed previously. Is having its own issues. And particularly, with parts of that country, being under lockdown. And being a top consumer of oil. They weren't using it.

So the demand destruction, is that reason. That big reason, that we had to decrease in oil. And then decrease in gas.

GLENN: So just confirm, this is a good way to look at the words demand instruction. Because you'll hear people to say, what we're looking for is demand destruction in the oil prices. And blah, blah, blah. And, you know, it just kind of goes over people's heads. And I describe it today. Every time you hear demand instruction, put your fame. So Carol Roth, your bank. Your bank account. At let's say Bank of America.

What they're looking for. What they're really looking for, is Carol Roth's bank account at Bank of America to be destroyed. So you don't have the money to go and buy the things. Correct?

Looking to price things so crazy. That you can't -- you can't afford it.

CAROL: Yeah. It's the outgrowth of high prices, that basically Carol Roth says, you know -- I'm looking at my bank account. It's being destroyed.

And there's no way that I can go on that road trip. So I'm just not going to be one of those people in the market, who is purchasing gasoline this month. I'm going to take a reprieve. I'm going to work from home. That's part of the whole story of the Federal Reserve. What they're trying to do to, quote, unquote, slow down the economy. And engineer their -- another big -- you know, kind of financial speak. A soft landing. Trying to quell inflation without tanking the economy.

And that's their tool kit, is all about demand destruction. They don't want the consumer to purchase. They don't want businesses to make investments. And we've already had two quarters of negative growth.

So if they're trying to get the economy to slow down, you know what that means? That means more contraction.

GLENN: Okay. So that's why gas is going down. And that was really the only thing that went down. Right?

We had food prices skyrocketed.

CAROL: Yeah. It's crazy. I saw a stat in there, that food in the house, it was something like they were in the highest levels since the late 1970s. '79, I think. So we have hot numbers in food, in shelter. In medical care services. This isn't like ancillary stuff. This isn't the fancy clothes. This is the stuff that you're -- you know, you need to be able to live your life.

And it was the -- the fact that we thought, maybe -- the lower energy prices would flow through, no pun intended, a little bit more of the economy. But it's just shown that we have a very broad base, in terms of inflation. It's not just coming from that one pocket. It's not just Putin's fault, Glenn.

GLENN: Right.

CAROL: And that is going to take a long time to come back down to normalized levels.

GLENN: So we have something else to add on top of that. And you can call it climate change or just a bad season, or whatever. But I was talking to my aunt, who is like 85 years old, yesterday.

Quite a conversation. I said!

Anyway, she was canning yesterday. And she was like, there have been no peaches. No beans. She said, we planted our bean garden three times. We had a hard time even finding seeds for it.

There is -- we are facing a real crisis just because the crops didn't come through, and that's happening globally. You add to that, all of the other problems. We haven't seen -- we're now just about to get into the time, where we would be using this summer's crops. Correct?

So food prices still have a lot way to -- a long way to go. In the up direction, don't they?

CAROL: They do. And that's part of the issue. Why I'm sort of banging my head against the wall, in terms of these discussion points. Because as we talk about the demand destruction that the fed policy is trying to enact.

Our issue is the broad-based supply issue. And as you mentioned, one of the areas that is undersupplied is food. Part of that, as you mentioned, because of weather events. Some of that because of fertilizer shortages. Some of it is because of by-products from energy that go into dry grains. Some of that, because of, you know, war in Ukraine.

But all of these things happening at the same time, are creating those shortages.

And again, as the consumer decides what to substitute. They may be able to substitute to a lower cost food, but they can't substitute food. And that will continue to be an issue, all across the globe.

GLENN: Well, they can't eat bugs. They're supposed to be very, very tasty.

Okay. Hang on just a second. I want to ask you a couple of things about the fed, and what they're planning on doing. And I'm reading some disturbing things, that I would just like -- talk me down from the tree. We'll do that in 60 seconds.

Barry wrote in about his experience with Relief Factor. He said, I'm a retired Marine. And all those years of my body, taking abuse, amounted to a lot of aches and pains, later in life.

But in only two weeks, Relief Factor took away all of my pain. Underlined all of my pain. It is the best investment in the quality of my life, I have ever made. Wow. Barry, thank you for your service.

Thank you for putting your body in the way for our freedom. Thank you.

And thanks for giving Relief Factor a try. I'm thrilled that you got your life back. Three-week Quick Start. Just try it. It was developed for you, by doctors. It's not a drug, so you won't feel spaced out or anything else. It's pain relief, that comes from the reduction of inflammation in our bodies. Inflammation is where we have most of our pain, and honestly, most of our disease comes from that as well. 70 percent of people, who take Relief Factor, go on to order more.

So try it, four relief. 800-4-Relief. Get the 19.95 three-week Quick Start developed for you. ReliefFactor.com. That's ReliefFactor.com. Feel the difference. Ten-second station ID.
(music)
So a couple of things, let's -- let me start with the fed. I am -- I am reading now, that the fed is going to raise the rates again.

But as astonishing as it seems to me, that we are at these historically speaking low rates. And it's going to stop the heart of the economy. They're saying now, the next rate, or rate hike. Or two. Could just put us into a tailspin. Do you believe that?

CAROL: I do. If you go back to Janet Yellen, our, quote, unquote, esteemed Treasury secretary. The one that told us that inflation would be transitory. And that they needed to get information on $600 e-commerce transactions to keep the billionaires in check, Glenn.

She was on -- one of those weekend shows. And she said, basically, that they fed is going need to a great deal of skill. And also, some luck to achieve this soft landing. Trying to bring down inflation, without taking the economy.

Well, we know on the skill side, we know that they don't have the skills. You know, they were behind the curve in terms of raising the rates to begin with. They waited until we were at, you know, historic 40-year highs, before they even started thinking about reversing course.

So obviously, we know that probably is not -- that the skill part of it. The luck part of it isn't on our side either. Because they don't have the right tool set. As we've been talking about this supply side, versus demand side. And the demand destruction. Their tool set, in terms of raising the target interest rate. As well as potentially reducing the assets under balance sheet. Although, I don't know if they'll ever get around to that. That, again, is to destroy demand.

It's just to have the consumer slow purchases. It's to have businesses slow investment. First, they have the government that's working, you know, against them on that. The government policy is spending more. So those two things are at odds. Which makes absolutely no sense.
But the problem we have now, isn't a demand side issue. It's a supply side issue. As we've been talking about, we have brought under supply. So unless the fed knows how to print labor, print food, print oil, print housing, they are not going to be able to solve for that -- for that Delta, that distance between supply and demand without completely slowing the economy to the point that we are in a severe recession. And that is what the market is signaling, both the stock market and the bond market right now.

Is saying, boy, we don't have the confidence, that the fed not only has the tools, but that they aren't going to put us in a worse situation. And on top of that, then you also have the global economy, you know, in tatters as well. Which isn't a lot -- not a lot. So I'm not real bullish on the skill and luck of the fed right now.

GLENN: So I was in -- I was in Italy last week. And just talked to people. Sit at a restaurant or whatever. And we just talk to people. And one of the more disturbing trends that I heard was, you know, that -- that things are getting really bad. And one person described it to me, as the winds of revolution are sweeping Europe.

Because -- and it's fascinating. Everyone knew, it was the same problem, we have here. The elites are going in one direction. And the people are going in another.

The people are saying, give it back to us. And the elites are saying, give it all to us.

And that's not going to last. And I kept hearing things like, we're just going to have to learn to -- that the this year days of having things that you wanted, and easy lives, are over. Can you describe what that means?

That Americans are just going to have to live a different kind of life.

CAROL: Yeah. It's so frustrating. That, you know, we have the leading economy in the world.

And you have all of these first world countries, that really have spent time, using their technology, to help other countries. And to help lift up human flourishing around the globe. I mean, if you think about China, and what we've done in terms of the extreme poverty there.

Lifting out 90 percent of their population, from extreme poverty. Because they were able to trade with us. And basically suck up some of our capitalism into the communist system. You know, that's what we should be doing. We should be taking that leadership, saying that we know how to do things the best way. And we're going to help everybody flourish. Instead, you have these elites, no. You know, we want this to be a third world country. And we want to be in a dictatorship. Where us at the top, have our own set of rules, and have all the power. And you just suffer. And you're going to have to suck it up.

And, unfortunately, there are some people, who will go along with that. Yeah. You know, crisis. We have to do all this together. Kind of what happened with covid. But we should have happened over the past two years. That they don't have our best outcomes.

GLENN: Interest.

CAROL: Yeah. Outcomes at heart. And they will do anything. Lie. Completely do anything they can to get and usurp that power. And we've already seen, you know, smaller amounts of civil unrest, you know, in developed countries. Whether it was the freedom convoy, or in the Netherlands with the farmers. And, you know, you're right. This could end up becoming a much bigger issue. Which, you know, if it changes the tide. You know, in a sense, it may not be the worst outcome. Not that obviously, I ever want to see any sort of violence or unrest. But we need to change the tenor, and the people need to take back common sense and sanity here.

GLENN: So the -- the one thing that kind of makes sense to me. Is -- you know, if you're somebody who wants control of things. You need to control medicine. They do. They need to control education. They do.

But they need to control energy. You know, I'm seeing this happening in Europe because they're ahead of us. And they're all -- people are going to freeze to death, this winter. They will freeze to death. And people did be able to pay their power bill. Which will put the energy companies into distress. And they won't have the money to do it. Because people aren't paying their bills, et cetera, et cetera. And I just think the government will step in and say, they couldn't get it done. This needs to be done by the government. And you could see the West just taking and absorbing all of our energy companies. Do you think that's a possibility?

Because I think it's likely, at least in Europe.

CAROL: I mean, so if you think about the desire to nationalize, control, have sort of a public/private partnership. At least in the US. California is sort of our incubator for that. And they're starting to test that in a lot of different realms. They just put together that fast recovery act. Which is going to be a state council on fast food. So they'll manage the fast food industry.

And, again, that is a step to try to nationalize these industries. I definitely see a place. We've already been hearing from the U.S. and abroad about things like price caps. We have a big problem in Europe, in terms of the way, they have kind of financed themselves, and a potential collapse of, you know, some of the energy companies and utilities out there. So, yes. You're going to have some -- the governments come in with a bailout. And then they may use that as an excuse. Well, we're bailing them out anyway. They can't manage them. We need to take this over. So whether it's food. Whether it's energy.

Whether it's any aspect of our economic freedom. These crisis are their touch points.

And, again, self-inflicted crisis. In order for them to say, we created the problem. But don't look at that. We'll fix that for you.

GLENN: Carol, will you do me a favor? I would like to do a special with just a group of experts, that can tell the average person, what's coming, and how do we deal with it.

I mean, it's so overwhelming to the average person. And I don't think, because people make it so complex. Because it is complex.

But they make it so complex, that they -- they don't even think about breaking it down into smaller bite sizes, that people can understand. So can you find a bunch of people, that you really think get it. That maybe can sit around at a roundtable, and maybe have a conversation about this.

CAROL: Yes. I would love to be honored to. And I will be in touch.

GLENN: Okay. Good. Carol, we'll talk again. Carol Roth. Carol Roth. Make sure you follow her. She's really, really spot-on. You can follow her at CarolRoth.com.

Also, tonight is a special on the energy crisis. And the collapse that is coming for Europe and what it means to America. Not just the explanation. But what we need to do about it. That's tonight. BlazeTV.com.

Shorts

Will our energy industry become NATIONALIZED?

GLENN: You are going see the oil industry in America and the energy industry, mainly energy companies I think, all nationalized in the next probably couple of years.

So, what does that mean?

You're going to see in the next few months energy companies in Europe not being able to afford to get energy...

Glenn: If you don’t recognize EVIL, you’re PART OF THE PROBLEM

When did America stop recognizing what’s EVIL in our society? Because today, Glenn says, it seems that what was once evil is deemed good, and what was once good now is considered evil. But it’s not too late to recognize the darkest ideas, philosophies, and actions overtaking American culture and to call them out. You don’t have to be a hero, Glenn says. But if you don’t stand up against evil, you’re becoming part of the problem…

GLENN: All right. So I've been following the new monkeypox czar. And he's a little controversial. His name is Dr. Demetre Daskalaki, I think. He has a long history in working public health, in issues pertaining to the LGBT community. He's helping lead the Biden administration response to the monkeypox outbreak. Now, I want to give you the -- the lowdown on him from the Daily Caller.

Prior to serving in the White House, the doctor was the director of the Centers for Disease Control and prevention CDC division of HIV prevention. According to the statement, he led the New York City, Department of Health and mental hygiene, infectious diseases efforts, and developed a clinical practice, focused on serving negligible LGBT communities.

Over the course of his career, he's developed and deployed some unorthodox tactics to serve that demographic.

For instance, he operated an HIV and hepatitis screening clinic out of a small office inside a Manhattan S&M club called paddles, where men could pay $40 to, you know, part with their coats and clothes and be paddled.

He also has dressed in drag to administer meningitis vaccines at sex clubs and bathhouses during an outbreak in New York. He is -- he is known as a progressive radical gay doctor. All right.

That's -- that's the label given to him, by an HIV AIDS organization. So they're on his side. And they're like, you're radical.

Now NPR just released an interview with the good doctor, and they had eight questions, the doctor, about stopping the U.S. monkeypox outbreak.

And reading and listening to him, he sounds rather reasonable, but they didn't ask him all the questions, that perhaps should be asked.

There is a -- there is a story out about some of the things that he has posted online that are a little disturbing.

He is a Columbia university undergraduate, general and religious double major. And some of his -- some of his -- well, you know, starting with the tattoo on his chest, of the pentagram, appears as though he kind of digs Satan a bit.

Alongside his -- his partner Michael McNeal. The pair launched a Goth gym in New York, which originally ran out of the high profile equinox gym chain, before spinning into its own brand, based in a former gay nightclub that in turn had taken over an old church in Manhattan.

It's called Monster Cycle, and it's got a lot of stuff on their website. You know, references to Satanism, the devil, burning crosses, Pentagrams, you know, the usual stuff for your gym.

He -- he has a tattoo of the Pentagram on his chest. And it says, I've learned there's light, even in the darkest of places.

Along with that, apparently he has a corpse of a dead creature of some sort. A serpent. Also, a head with three eyes. What appears to be a saint-like figure, or maybe even Jesus Christ across his stomach. And in his -- in his post, which now have been removed, there was a series of images from 2012, that appeared to depict a séance. They're at a ouija board ceremony with a lit crucifix, that was laying on the pentagram, on -- on the table.

You know, he's got an image, wearing a pentagram helmet, with an upside down cross above it. And his partner is dressed, I guess like Christ. If that's what -- with a crown of thorns. And, you know, he's got the post that says, we'll steal your soul. All of these -- you know, all of these things. Now, the press says, he's just entertaining. Well, yeah. I -- I -- I guess, if that's what you -- if that's what you like. There's a lot more of this kind of stuff. But that doesn't make you necessarily a Satanist. And let me just -- let me play devil's advocate here. Possibly truly devil's advocate.

Let's say, that you believe -- this guy is just a performer. And you can reach the community, that most people need. You know, the people that are really in need. He's there. He's got it. You know, and he's just a performer. And, you know, maybe there's a chance that he's not a performer, I don't know. But if that's true, let me ask you: Who refused the covid vaccine, at the highest rate? And was covid a bigger risk than monkeypox to the general population?

The answer to that, according to the president, is clearly yes.

Well, Donald Trump volunteered to speak up, and let the White House, Biden, use him.

Many conservatives even took the vaccine. But no one was ever asked to be a spokesperson. The Biden administration never took up that vile Donald Trump, who was saying the same things they were about the vaccine. So if you're truly willing to deal with the devil, to protect people, why would you do it this time, and not then?

By the way, this brings up some disturbing things. You know, we're not talking about somebody that is, you know, in a -- in an offshoot kind of thing. Like, yeah. He's going to be deciding the color of green in our stoplights. This guy is part of the medical community. And our health care system. The same system that lied about the effects of covid.

The same system that never stood for you're children. Never told us about the vaccines or even our children's -- the effects of isolation. In fact, denied those things.

Is anybody concerned about the doctors that we are now putting together, that are not treating people, they disagree with, over vaccines or hate?

There's a perversion of the Hippocratic oath, that's happening right now. Which is, first, do no harm.

First, do no harm. Is that what we're doing with our children?

Is anybody worried about the corruption of the CDC? Fauci, the merger of government pharmaceutical companies, and doctors?

Cutting parents out of the medical decisions, life and death, sex and gender, pregnancies, all of these things.

Cutting the parents out of that line. Willing to allow babies to die or be killed after birth?

I don't know. I -- I think we should probably pay attention, to what's going on.

But the problem is, we don't recognize evil anymore.

I never understood that good would become evil, and evil would become good. I never understood, how could that possibly happen?

Well, now we know. Now we know. A very well executed, propaganda machine, that starts in our schools, and teaches the things that we think are no big deal.

And it gets worse and worse and worse. And at the same time, they delete all of the truth.

Until it gets to a point, to where the people wake up, and is it too late?

My answer to you is, it's not too late. We just have to decide, what evil is. Is it evil to sexually abuse children. And let me define that. Somebody who has a -- an attraction to minors who is an adult, decides they're going to have sex with a very willing 8-year-old. Is that evil, or not?

Say it out loud. Yes. It's evil. If you disagree with me here, you have a long ride. And you're part of the problem.

If you're neutral on that, or unwilling to say that, you are part of the problem.

And you will be swept up into the other side, and you don't want to be there. Is it evil to show sex acts to minors? To teach them, how to perform sex acts?

Is it evil to have drag queens come into our schools, where kids can put dollar bills into their G string. Or just hand it to them. Is it evil to indoctrinate children into hopelessness and hate for the family, hate for God, hate for their own country.

Is it evil to people in, to medical experiments. Is it evil to dismember or amputate perfectly good limbs or appendages on a healthy body. Is it evil to endorse and excuse mass looting? To encourage anybody to just go into a store and take what they want, and leave.

Is it evil to burn down whole cities. To encourage that. Or to excuse it. Is it evil to intentionally destroy families. To intentionally destroy gender. To say there is no such thing as a woman. No such thing as a man.

Is it evil, to cancel free speech, in a much more widespread way, than the red scare.

Is it evil to preach color of skin, over content of character? Fifteen years ago, ten years ago, I could have given that list, and everyone in the country, even Bill Maher, even Joe Biden, would have absolutely said even if it was just for performance, they all would have said, of course, those things are evil.

Now, our system is pushing and preaching these things. Look, you don't need to be some hero. You don't need to be Martin Luther King. You don't need to be Dietrich Bonhoeffer. All you have to do is just recognize the difference between good and evil. That's it! Just recognize it. No, that's evil. I can't do it at that. Nope. That's -- that's evil.

So what is the opposing of evil? Because I guess that's what you have to be. It's not good enough, as they say now, it's not good enough just to be against racism. You have to be an antiracist. Well, that seems evil, because that is just getting revenge. That's participating in the thing you say has been so destructive, of human beings. And I disagree with you.

So now why would we do that? So how do you fight evil?

There is truly only one way. I'm going to explain the difference between good and evil. For those who don't really understand. In 60 seconds.

All right. So we don't recognize evil anymore. But do we recognize good? Do we recognize good? What is good?

Is love good? Love is good. Real, true love, if you understand the definition of love. Love is good. But love is God. If you don't believe that God is love, then you've got a screwed up definition of God. And love.
There is no fear in God. Well, have you read the Bible. It's a pretty scary thing. Yeah. The last part is kind of scary. Why was that given to us in that was given to us, so that we would not fear. And we would be prepared for when -- what, as they say happens? Good becomes evil, and evil becomes good?

You would be prepared. So there is no fear, in love. And love is more than just words. It's action. It should be the main driving characteristic of each of us.

It's not of me.

I try, but it's not me. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy. Now, remember, so what he's saying what it is. It also says what it isn't. So a meritocracy. Does that involve envy? No. It shouldn't. A meritocracy is just based on the color -- not on the color of skin. But on the content of character. And what you do with your life. And why should anybody be envious of that? They have their own thing. Love is kind. It does not boast. It is not proud. It does not dishonor others. It's not self-seeking. It's not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongs. It keeps no record of wrongs. It does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. And it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

This was written by a guy, who didn't believe in Jesus. In fact, was killing all the guys that liked Jesus. Until he kind of had an encounter. And was like, whoops. I was wrong. Hey, first thing. Redemption. And don't hate the guy, who was literally killing your people. Let him go. If he's changed his life, if he's honest about it, great. Because he might be the biggest spokesperson. He might bring to the table, something no one else can bring.

And he talked about love. He's the one who wrote all of that. And he wrote it to -- because the church, at the time, was really -- they weren't demonstrating love.

And he said, if I -- if I speak in tongues of men or of angels. In other words, if I'm talking about all these great things, but I don't have any love in my heart. I'm just making noise. What are we doing right now? How many of us are talking about what we believe in? Or what we're against?

But we don't truly have love in our heart for the people who are now persecuting us. That's what this message was all about. It -- it means, love is patient. It means loving someone, even when you really don't want to. That's how I always -- that's how I always know something is from God. Oh, please. No, no, no. No, not that. I don't want to do that.

When you really don't want to love somebody, that's when you're supposed to. But don't -- don't confuse this. This does not mean, you love evil. It means you stand up for truth, again. You don't need to be some hero. This is very easy for all of us to do. You don't have to start some organization. You don't have to join any marches. You don't have to do anything. You just, in your realm, never, ever tolerate lies. On things that you know are untrue. Sexualization of our children is bad. Evil exists. And it has conned a good number of our society, into believing evil, over truth and good. And more importantly, it's captivated many of our hearts. In believing, you can't win. Or to stay silent.

Why YOU should care that King Charles may RUIN the monarchy

King Charles III may cause the world to severely miss Queen Elizabeth — whether they expected to or not — and a video Pat shows Glenn of Charles’ anger on full display shows why. But it gets even worse. In fact, Glenn thinks Charles may be worse than many of America’s far-left. In this clip, Glenn explains why he worries Charles could ruin the British monarchy, and he explains why Americans should even care…

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Going to miss the Queen, but when you see king Charles III, I think all the world will soon say, going to miss the Queen. Wow.
PAT: They might already be saying that. There was a little photo op, or video op, even of him -- I don't know what he's signing. You know, the king really doesn't sign bills into law.
GLENN: Yeah, yeah.
PAT: So -- but he's -- he's -- he's motioning to the people that are helping him, and clearly outraged about these pens that are in the way. And he wants them removed. Look at these -- there's two videos, the first one, just kind of shows you, how he -- how easily he can set it off. Okay. So now. Then he sits down, and then he still is pissed. The expression on his face.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh. He, like, bares his teeth. It's like, are you a dog?
PAT: Yes. He clenches his teeth like he's going to bite somebody.
GLENN: He's not a good guy.
PAT: No, he's not.
GLENN: And he's also a little nutty.
PAT: Yeah. And he's an extreme leftist.
GLENN: Oh, I think extreme leftists go, I'm not with him.
PAT: Yeah.
GLENN: His father said, if he could come back. If reincarnation were real, he would want to come back as a virus because humans are the problem.
PAT: Oh, that's right. Yeah.So he comes from a along line of kooks.
GLENN: He is -- oh, yeah. And he's big in ESG and everything else. And, you know, I'm going to start laying something out later on, that I learned while I was over in Europe. That is, I think -- I think it's another -- I think I found another piece of history, that is as big as Woodrow Wilson for me.
PAT: Oh, wow.
GLENN: You know, where everybody is like, what are you talking about? And then once people started to understand, they were like, oh, my gosh. This is the Rosetta stone. I think I found another one. And it is -- and you'll understand him. You'll understand everything. Talk about it a little bit. I have to talk to my staff about it, so I can really lay it all out for you. Later on today.
This thing with Prince Charles now king Charles the third. Is very, very disturbing. We were in Florence, Italy, when it happened.
And the people there, you can see, were affected by it. Everybody, I think really -- whether you wanted her to be queen, or whatever. She affected your life. I think universally liked her.
PAT: Seems like it.
GLENN: Yeah. I think in thinking about it, last week, I think she may have been the greatest political leader of the 20th century. And when I say political, I don't really mean political, because she refused most times to get involved in politics. That's according to their constitution. She can't.
But she guarded that. And her job as queen, was to be an icon or a reminder, to set the standards of what we as a society, western society, should uphold. And -- and strive to be like. And I have to tell you --
PAT: Seems to have done a good job at that.
GLENN: I think so. You like her, hate her, whatever. You look at the end of her life, would you not be proud to go out with her reputation and her memory?
PAT: Yeah.
GLENN: I would.
PAT: Yeah. With the affection that people had for her. Yeah.
GLENN: And the fact that you don't have any tapes flying around with her, flying into a rage, or being, whatever.
PAT: Sleeping with the king of France. None much those things.
GLENN: You don't have any of those. You don't have any of those. You know, they just auctioned off a letter. And I followed it just because I found it hysterical. A letter of hers that was written the week that Diana died. And it went for a lot of money. But not because Diana was mentioned in it. Or the press. It had nothing to do with the actual words written in the letter. It had everything to do with the use of an exclamation point.
She -- well, this sounds crazy. She was actually virulently opposed to the exclamation point. She spent her whole life saying, it should -- it shouldn't even exist. It doesn't exist. It serves no purpose. If the letter is written correctly, you will understand the case and why this person is upset. And don't even get me started, good thing she didn't ever go online, with the use of exclamation points.
But she was against them, because there's no need for that kind of rhetoric. In this one letter, she used an exclamation point, and it was the only time in her life that she did it.
PAT: Wow.
GLENN: She was just temperate. Charles, you know, it's really fascinating to me. It's always the third generation. And, by the way, that would be us. It's always the third generation, look at the stock that her father came from. Her father was -- he did not want to be king. He had no desire to be king. He didn't -- he stuttered.
He was a guy like Moses. He really should not be the king. And was not prepared, ever to be the kipping. Because his brother was the first born. His brother cozies up to a -- to a Nazi sympathizer. An American, by the way.
And falls head over heels in love with her, and decides, I'm leaving. And I'm abdicating. So now, here's Elizabeth, watching her father, struggle through all of this. And try to be prepared and try to become the king. When he wasn't supposed to be
He becomes the king, by the time, she's 14, she realizes, I'm going to have to be the queen. At 21, on her 21st birthday, she gives an incredible speech about pledging her loyalty to serve the people and the commonwealth. Her whole life with honor.
She lived up to that. So now her father is unbelievably great. She's unbelievably great. And the third generation, just they don't care.
I don't think Charles has any honor in him. And -- and it could destroy it.
Just like, I think this is a lesson for all of us.
It is our generation that has let it fall. We have not done our job. However, are we raising our children to be able to step in, and are we giving our children who can step in the opportunity to maybe step in a little earlier than they should?
I think William would be a great king. With all that he learned from not only his grandmother, his father, and his mother, Diana, I think he could restore this. And be a good king.
Charles, if he lasts more than five years, I would be surprised. And if he's smart, he would abdicate in five years, and give it to his son. Because Charles will destroy the -- the monarchy. I know you don't care. I don't really care. Except, the monarchy under Elizabeth, was the one stabilizing of constant reminder, of where we came from. It is a historic institution. Good, bad, indifferent, it doesn't matter. It's a reminder of history. You take away the monarchy and try to teach to your kids the Founders and who they fought after -- who they fought against. Why they fought against it. Why is the monarchy bad? And, you know, why was she stripped of all of her powers?
This is gravely disorienting and gravely dangerous, having a Charles step in.
If he's learned anything from his mother, and he actually does it, the monarchy has a chance.
If he starts to get involved and blab his mouth, and he is seen doing anything, anything, the monarchy is over.
And most Americans don't care. You should. Because it is a -- it's a mile-marker. It is an institution, that reminds who we are, where we've come from.
And the best thing is, Americans don't pay a dime for it. So I'm all for that.
