The 2020 election is about loving or loathing America

In President Trump's recent 60 Minutes interview – more of a cross-examination than an interview – Lesley Stahl asked him if he could characterize his supporters. He replied that they are, "People that love our country more than anything else. And they like to see our country thrive."

It is surprising that Democrats no longer seem to recognize there is still a large market for patriotism. Every day now, Democrats cater more and more to the market for contempt toward America. That does not mean all Joe Biden supporters loathe America. There are certainly Democrats who love their nation. But a far greater proportion of voters on the Left clearly loathe America. You don't roam the streets looting and burning when you love your community and nation. When you love your community and nation, you don't call police officers pigs, and riot to abolish law enforcement. Those actions are clearly driven by loathing.

In a speech earlier this week, Joe Biden condemned the latest violence and looting in Philadelphia, but then said, "Much of it [the violence] is a cry for justice." If Joe Biden is correct in that assessment, it is a tragic commentary on just how far out of love the Left has fallen with their nation. Because in America's past, looting stores and setting fire to buildings with people inside is not how serious citizens worked to achieve any kind of justice. It also demonstrates how sadly deficient their history education is that they do not see how radically different, and far more effective, the nonviolent Civil Rights movement of the 1960s was under Martin Luther King Jr.'s leadership. How are you achieving any justice when every act of burning and looting just creates more victims of injustice?

"Death to America" used to be the go-to cliché ringing out from the streets of Tehran. But this year it has been heard in Portland and Kenosha. It is the pathetic culmination of a half-century of neo-Marxist indoctrination of generations of Americans through our institutions of "higher learning." The 1960s Marxist rebels did not achieve their desired revolution in the U.S., so they became college professors instead. For decades, they methodically fed their anti-American poison to gullible captive audiences of students, brain-washing a new and larger subversive army than they were able to muster in the Sixties. Now that poison has seeped into every corner of our educational system, so that anti-American sentiment is more the rule than the exception.

It is a frightening, anti-American sentiment we've not seen on this level before.

The combination of COVID-19, economic meltdown, and the George Floyd tragedy created the neo-Marxists' ideal concoction – the opportunity to pin everything on the false narrative that America's only real sin is white supremacy. Just like original Marxism which reduced all of human history to a struggle between the working class and the evil capitalist overlords, and just like Nazism which blamed all German problems on Jews, Anti-racism is a quasi-religion that pins America's problems on the white man. It is an absurd, bigoted, ignorant conclusion, but it sells in the large segment of America that is riddled with cancer from ingesting the 1960s-neo-Marxist poison.

America has had plenty of contentious presidential elections before. Sometimes your preferred candidate wins, sometimes they lose, but we agree to disagree and move on. Ultimately, we get back to our lives after an election, trusting the Constitutional design of our system will balance things out so that no presidential administration can lead the nation too far off the deep end. But this time there is something much more sinister emanating from the Left – this idea that after President Biden ascends to his rightful throne, Americans who dared vote for Trump must be taken to the woodshed and taught a lesson, so they never utter a political opinion again. It is a frightening, anti-American sentiment we've not seen on this level before. Again, this sentiment represents an unprecedented loathing of America and of the classical liberal tradition of our political debate.

Over the past 244 years, most Americans have seen their share of garbage on our shores – greed, injustice, corruption, disastrous foreign entanglements, racism, and on and on the list goes. Most Americans have experienced this garbage in one form or another yet still said, "So you're saying there's a chance." In spite of the obstacles, most Americans choose to believe there is still a chance with America, a chance of doing better personally, and as a nation. That prospect has always fueled the American people. But it doesn't mean it always will. Ultimately, it is a choice – to love or to loathe our country. And only one of those choices provides the catalyst to continue improving the American experiment, while protecting the key principles that made it exceptional in the first place.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books.

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
