Glenn's must read of the day


Meltdown

By Thomas E Woods Jr

GLENN: All right. So Thomas Woods is the author of Meltdown. Is he on the phone with me?

WOODS: Sure am.

GLENN: Tom? How are you, sir?

WOODS: I saw Taken this weekend, too. I'm great.

GLENN: Do you have daughters?

WOODS: I have three daughters. The oldest is 5. Yeah, they are not leaving the house.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. I mean, it just wouldn't let up. Now, I mean, I just don't go to a lot of movies lately. I get my thrills from reading books like yours.

WOODS: Oh, thanks.

GLENN: I just, I mean, I thought I was going to have a heart attack by the end of that darn thing.

WOODS: Yeah, it's excellent, excellent. I want William Neeson defending me.

GLENN: I'm sorry for anybody who didn't see this movie but were you a little pissed at his crappy friends? His friends come over, they have beers, "Yeah, we were in the CIA." Okay, you're on your own, you got 96 hours to find your daughter. How about a little love. Jeez.

Okay. So all right, so Tom, here's -- I thought of you this morning and this is why we called you. I thought of you this morning. After reading your book this weekend, I turn on the news and I heard three talking heads all say the same thing: We've got to do something. And I'm trying to make the case that, no, sometimes the best thing to do is nothing. And I had never heard of the Depression of 1920 until I read your book. Could you teach the Depression of 1920 to America?

WOODS: Oh, could I? I'd be thrilled to.

GLENN: Go ahead.

WOODS: Yeah, no one's ever heard of the Depression of 1920 and the reason is congress didn't try to get us out of it. It was far worse, if you actually look at employment, it was actually far worse than the Depression of 1929 that everybody has heard of. What did we have? A fiscal stimulus? To the contrary the government did everything that's fashionable economics shouldn't do and they actually cut the budget. So you actually had a negative stimulus according to them but to me that's a wonderful thing to do. You reduce the power of the parasitic sector effort rest of the economy. That's great. The Federal Reserve system inflate the money supply? They hardly did anything. They didn't know what to do. The president at the time was Warren harding, sort of an aim I can't believe guy but by the time it occurred to him to do something, the depression was over and the U.S. was back to setting production records. So I think there is a lesson here when you compare it to what did they do in the year 1929. The book you talk about by Bert Folsom, I love Bert Folsom.

GLENN: Have you read this?

WOODS: I haven't yet, no, but I'm sure it's good.

GLENN: I mean, you should read it. I mean, he's probably not going to check. You should plagiarize some of this stuff and just put it in.

WOODS: Well, I got some stuff in Meltdownabout the Great Depression.

GLENN: I know you do.

WOODS: When you look at the year 1929 and thereafter, it's exactly the opposite. They say we're going to roll up our sleeves and fix this thing. Gee, what an interesting coincidence. It goes on for year after year after year. And today we're being told that Hoover is like Bush and Obama's like FDR. Look, let's make clear. I mean, Hoover was not a free market guy. He was -- that was a problem. He wouldn't let the market adjust.

GLENN: But wait. Hang on just a second because one thing I do like in your book is you said at one point, you know, the conservatives are now blaming the Community Reinvestment Act and they're blaming the Democrats, and that's not going to get us anywhere because that's just only part of it. It's only part of the story. You can't tell me that Bush -- I think Bush is very much Hoover because he did about as much, if I'm not mistaken, as Hoover did. He got in there and rolled up his sleeves and said, "We're going to take this thing on, I'm going to dismantle the system to clean the system up." You're like, what are you talking about

WOODS: No, you are right. I couldn't agree more. My point is the way the analogy's being made is the ideas that Bush and Hoover sat back and did nothing whereas the saviors, FDR and Obama are going to come rescue us whereas to the contrary if only Bush and Hoover had sat back and done nothing, we would be in far better shape. Now, I know you're right, it's hard to argue we should quote/unquote do nothing because then it seems like, well, you have nothing to recommend. So I mean, my version of doing nothing would be just start cutting everything you can possibly cut. Just cut like crazy. If the American people have to cut back, you know, why should the government be getting new ones in the name of stimulus.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? This makes me so mad, Thomas, because if you look at it, if you look at what's going on, you are exactly right. Every business in America is cutting back. Every business in America is laying people off. Everybody is reevaluating, et cetera, et cetera. The government is expanding and building new offices and building new ships and everything else and you're thinking to yourself, "Well, wait a minute. Why do the economics of my level not somehow magically work at the government level." What makes us think that it's different in the White House than it is in our house?

WOODS: Yeah, that's exactly right. And, of course, this stimulus package is mainly just, you know, a way to buy votes and stuff. It doesn't actually work. If it worked, Japan would be doing great but it's been in the dumps for 18 years because it's government created a housing bubble over there and then when it burst, it tried to fight against reality, propping up prices, and the result was, you know, they tried every stimulus you could imagine, they lowered interest rates to zero, they flooded the economy with money, they almost nationalized their banks. And what's the result? A lot more debt, the economy's still in the tank, the real estate market is where it was in 1975. So what they're going to do in America is the same thing they are going to try to fight against reality. When prices are trying to come down, they are going to try and keep them up. It's not going to work and all we'll have is a whole lot more debt on our shoulders.

GLENN: So I want to go -- we have to take a break and I want to go here to then what should we be doing today and what is the real culprit that no one will talk about. Everyone will talk about the rich, everyone will talk about corporate America being greedy, everybody will talk about Bernie Madoff, but what is the elephant in the room? More in a second.

[Break]

GLENN: We have Tom Woods on the phone. He's got a new book out called Meltdown. This explains how we got here and then explains what do we do from here, and I was just talking to Tom on the phone. You're a professor, right? Are you a professor?

WOODS: I've been a professor but now I'm a fellow at the Ludwig Von Mises Institute. I just write all the time.

GLENN: Oh, I love the Ludwig Von Mises Institute. What the hell is the Ludwig --

WOODS: The Ludwig Von Mises Institute is pretty much the oasis of sanity in the lunacy going on because we promote United States of America in economics. All those who predicted this cycle, Hayek won the Nobel Prize for it and of course we're the economists who are ignored now even though we called it. They say no one could have seen this coming. We saw it.

GLENN: I mean, you know what? This is crazy, Tom. I saw it and I don't have any -- I don't even know who Ludwig whatever is. It just takes somebody with some common sense to be able to see this. And I have to tell you, and I'm reading your book and the elephant in the room that nobody will talk about is the Fed.

WOODS: Yeah.

GLENN: And I know as soon as you start talking about the Fed, people's eyes glaze over. Beyond that, they also immediately start to think of Ron Paul who is painted as an absolute crazy man and I don't agree with Ron Paul on everything but when it comes to the economy, he's right on it.

WOODS: Exactly right. No, you are right, Glenn. I mean, talking about the Fed, most Americans probably don't even know much about it. They're led to believe that they can never figure it out. And basically now is the time we don't have that luxury. You've got to figure it out. It's not that hard. Part of the reason I wrote Meltdown is so the people could understand what the Fed is, what it does because the destructive consequences of what the Fed does are always blamed on the free market and that's not fair and it's got to stop. And so yes, we had the Community Reinvestment Act but if you hadn't had the Federal Reserve system lowering interest rates to insane levels, you would not have launched this boom in the first plays and what Hayek said, won the Nobel Prize for, and he's obviously not a nut although some nuts have won a Nobel Prize. I mean, look at Paul Krugman, we won't mention any names but he said --

GLENN: Yeah. Well, that was the one that came to mind, sure was Paul Krugman.

WOODS: Of course. The prize has been debased over the years like central currency. But if the central banks pushes money to these low levels, the result is the economy starts doing irrational things and making irrational investments that aren't going to pan out, there aren't enough resources to sustain them all.

GLENN: It's exactly what happened with the housing.

WOODS: Exactly.

GLENN: The housing, they pushed this low rate, people went, oh, my gosh, look at this. It started this ball rolling where everybody was like, oh, my gosh, look at how fast everything is increasing in value, I've got to buy, buy, buy, buy, buy, it was a bubble.

WOODS: Exactly. And therefore there's inevitably a bust. It cannot go on forever. It's like a heroin addict thinking that he can increase, just keep increasing his intake of heroin, that will solve his problems because the central bank is the same way. You know, we get on this artificial boom and what's the only solution they can think of is just more. More, more, more, whereas we know we need to go cold turkey when you are a drug addict and we have gone on this artificial credit binge for so long and so it distorts the economy. It makes people go into businesses that really they shouldn't go into. I mean, Peter Schiff is a common, frequent guest on your program. Schiff said it's like when the circus comes to town and everybody comes to see the circus and they start going to restaurants in the area. The local restaurant owner said, well, I better build an addition to accommodate all these people because they are not going to be there forever, they are going to leave when the circus leaves. That's what the Fed does. It makes businesses start up that don't really make any sense in the long run and so you've got all these sort of phony baloney zombie businesses and all these stimulus packages are intended to keep them going. We need to liquidate them and get sound businesses going in their place.

GLENN: So how do we get rid of the Fed?

WOODS: I'm happy to say Jim Rogers, that great investment guy, he actually predicts there will be no Fed in 10 years. Now, that's a --

GLENN: May I say -- now, Jim Rogers was a brilliant guy. He's a brilliant man.

WOODS: Yeah.

GLENN: He was a partner of Soros for a while and a really smart guy. But if I'm not mistaken, he also has moved to Singapore because he's not to sure we'll be around.

WOODS: Yeah, he decided in 2007 at the height to sell his house and move to where he feels the future is in Asia because I think he feels in the West we're going to see the dead hand of government, we're going to see those few profitable firms that are left are going to be saddled with the responsibility for taking care of all the losers in the economy in terms of all the businesses that should go out of business. They are going to stay artificially propped up. You know, you can't have a successful economy like that. So he saw the writing on the wall. He wants his kids to grow up in a prosperous environment and what a shame, you know. What a shame that you have to -- I mean, I just can't imagine living anywhere else. But what a shame he was put in that position. But how do we end, how do we put a stop to this, doing what you're doing and writing books and just telling the population, this is not, you know, a faded existence, that we have to have a central bank that is a lender of last resort and can bail out all the losers.

GLENN: But Tom, nobody, there is -- I mean, I can't believe it. You'll be called a kook. I'm having you on and I believe Burton is going to be on tonight with you along with Steve Forbes, and I'm going to have you guys on. We're going to talk about this stuff, and I guarantee you, oh, it's a crazy show. It's nothing but kooks getting rid of the Fed. There's nobody that will actually say these things in enough frequency to be able to get this thing to move. And now you've got the government literally in bed with these banks and they are -- I mean, we're seeing mob style tactics. How do you release the death grip? How do you get that death grip from around our neck?

WOODS: Well, partly with humor, partly with reminding people that the very same people who say we're cranks are the ones who have no idea this crisis is coming, who have absolutely no idea what to do about it, who at a time when the Fed was creating more dollars between 2000 and 2007 than had been created in the whole history of the republic, these people thought that's just perfectly normal, there will be no negative consequences to that. We've got the Fed chairman, Ben Bernanke said that by the end of 2008 the housing market should rebound. We got record foreclosures. We've got these people saying that the economy is in great shape. Alan Greenspan said you should take out adjustable rate mortgages. And he and Bernanke said there is no housing bubble. And Bernanke even said, "My regulators investigated the mortgage market in 2006 and '07 and we found that it's better than ever." Those are the cranks because they have been wrong on everything. We at least have the merit of having been right. We've called this and we've consistently been right. And the reason I wrote Meltdownwas to go after people who themselves didn't see this coming and have the nerve to blame this downturn on the free market as if it's the free market's fault that rates were pushed down by the government's crummy central bank.

GLENN: Okay, let me ask you quick and then I've got to take a break. How long do you think we have before this thing really comes crashing down?

WOODS: Oh, it's -- you know, I don't know. I know that seems like a copout but the timing, you can't ever really know. Ludwig Von Mises was a great economist of the 20th century. He predicted the Great Depression in 1928 at a time when everybody else says we're going to be prosperous, the business cycle has been tamed. He said not so fast, I can't know when but I can know that if you flood the economy with all this phony money and you drive interest rates down, you are starting off a boom that's going to end in a bust, I'm telling you it's going to be a bust. And it came the next year and he was almost -- he and Hayek were almost the only ones who called it.

GLENN: Okay.

WOODS: So it's very, very hard to get the timing right but you know it.

GLENN: Tom, if you don't mind, I'm going to see if we can't arrange to have you on the radio show a couple of times this week and I'd like you to write something for our newsletter because I think you've got it down.

WOODS: It would be my pleasure.

GLENN: Yeah, so we'll arrange all of that and we'll see you tonight at 5:00 on the Fox News Channel.

WOODS: Great, look forward to it.

GLENN: Thank you, sir.

Following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a transgender activist called for a "Supreme Court Assassination Challenge" on Twitter, according to screenshots captured of the now-deleted tweet.

Activist Eli Erlick, a founding member of Trans Student Educational Resources (TSER) and creator of the controversial "gender identity" teaching tool for children called the "Gender Unicorn," tweeted and later deleted the disturbing remark on Friday, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) also caught a screenshot of the tweet before it was deleted.

"The unhinged radical left is calling for the assassination of our Supreme Court Justices. That's not the way to disagree with a decision in America. It is unacceptable, and Biden’s DOJ must immediately act," Blackburn responded on Twitter.

Erlich then tried to play off her call to assassinate Supreme Court justices as a hilarious joke only Gen Z and Millennials would understand, apparently not understanding the seriousness of the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh just three weeks ago.

Erlick isn't the only Left-winger to make incendiary calls since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. Here are just a few examples:

  • Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called on people to “defy" the Supreme Court.
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called for people to get “into the streets” alongside radical communist leader who wants to 'overthrow' the American system.
  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) yelled "F*** Clarence Thomas" on a public stage for all to see and hear.
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested that Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh lied to Congress.
  • And of course, "TheView" host Whoopi Goldberg issued a disgusting racist threat toward Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program, BlazeTV hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere took a look at these and other stunning examples of leftist lunacy over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Many members of the far-left already are calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the White House has been discussing plans to defy the ruling too. In fact, one idea floated by Biden Administration officials, according to the New York Times, includes providing abortions on military bases. So, will America experience another summer of riots? Are YOUR taxpayer dollars at risk? And what does this mean for deep-blue states? Josh Hammer, legal expert and opinion editor for Newsweek, joins Glenn to discuss what may come next...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Josh Hammer, he's the opinion editor of Newsweek. He's the host of the Josh Hammer show. He is really quite brilliant. One of the leading minds in the conservative movement, I think. Josh Hammer joins us now.

To tell us, what did you find in this decision?

JOSH: Glenn, great to be back with you, on such a momentous, and really such an emotional day, honestly. So, you know, look, as you said, this dropped recently. Funny enough, I was in the middle of getting a guest lecture from an organization on the advisory board as to when it drops. So I barely had any time to kind of skim through, let alone guess the concerning dissenting opinions. But it looks like this looks very similar, to the draft opinion that was leaked, by the Politico story, a month and a half ago, in early May. And I think those of us who were praying that the five justices from this leaked draft opinion, would have the fortitude to stiffen their spines against this unprecedented assault. Now knows that our prayers were answered, Glenn. That's really my takeaway right now.

This looks a lot like the leaked opinion. Justice Thomas and Justice Kavanaugh have some reconcurring opinions.

But unbelievable. And really just holding aside the constitutional law stuff for a second hear. Just speaking as pro-lifers, on a day like today, I think we really just need to pause. And I tweeted this out earlier. We need to just be grateful for our half century of pro-life activist forbearers. You know, this -- Glenn, this issue could have gone away after 1973. That was a long time ago. 1973. I mean, this issue could have just gone away. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the pro-life moral activist. Political activist. And, of course, yes. Legal activist. Who fought day in and day out, that makes sure this great injustice stayed front and center of our national, political conscience. And in many days, the culmination of a half century of fighting for truth and justice. But in many ways, it's also a new beginning for the pro-life fight as well, interestingly.

STU: How do you mean a new beginning for the fight? I just it's going to turn, I think we're going to see abortion turn even darker in those states that allow it. Is that -- is that what you're meaning by this?

JOSH: Well, look, for a half century now, Roe vs. Wade, and its project any, specifically, the Planned Parenthood versus Casey case of 1992.

They took away from the states obviously. They arrogated authority away from the states, the ability to attempt to nationally codify one view of the morality of abortion.

It happened to be a profoundly immoral view. So these -- the fight now shifts to the states. And the pro-life activists. And all the 50 states. Especially, obviously in red states. Purple states. I mean, admittedly some blue states like New York and California, probably won't be able to touch them there.

But we have to make sure that our side is well positioned in the state Capitols for every red, purplish, probably even light blue state, to make sure we fight for successful, cogent, and morally consistent pro-life legislation. The state of Oklahoma, actually, just north of Texas. Right where you are now, Glenn. They have been leading on this actually. Governor Kevin Stitt signed into law, a fantastic pro-life bill there in Oklahoma. A few weeks ago. Maybe a month ago or so at this point, that basically just bans abortion straightforward from conception. And there are some -- you know, obviously, likable the mother. So forth. But we really need to start thinking about trying to craft legislation now, at the state level. But to your point, I do fear that the blue states will only double down in their radicalism. Unfortunately within that will only lead to an ever greater divide, in our country, that we have today. But obviously, at the end of the day. We're going to save at the end of the day, millions and millions of unborn children. We are going to save human beings who can grow up to cure cancer, who can win Nobel prices.

I mean, this is just a tremendous win for the human species. I don't know how to say it other than that.

GLENN: I will tell you, I saw the stat, that I think it was last year or the year before. 20 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion. 20 percent.

JOSH: Wow.

GLENN: That is -- that is a shocking number. And we do have our -- our work cut out for us. Because I -- I think that these states are going to double down. But I think, you know -- God doesn't waste anything. You know, there is no waste with God. Even the -- even the worst things that could possibly happen, turn out to be something good. You know what I mean? You're like, holy cow, how did that just happen.

And I think that evil is going to fully come unmasked. I'm telling you, Josh. I don't know how you feel about this. I think this could be the day of America's Kristallnacht. I can see these pro-life centers being burned to the ground today. They're calling for a night of rage around the country. I think evil is going to show itself. And that will scare the American people, hopefully.

JOSH: You know, I've been thinking about this a lot this week, actually. Because I've been bracing for a new kind of George Floyd summer of love, happening this summer. Coming to a city or suburb near you. Unfortunately, myself. Look, I live in Florida. I know, Glenn, you live in Texas. It is in moments like this, where I do think that where you live matters. And who your mayor is. Who your governor is, matters.

Because law and order and rioting and anarchy is not really a federal issue. It is to a limited extent. June 2020, Tom Cotton wrote this op-ed that was pretty controversial at the time.

I happen to agree with it. Where he said, quote, unquote, send in the troops. And there is some federal legislation from the reconstruction era that would justify that.

But most kind of quelling and quashing of anarchy does happen. Constitutionally speaking, at the state and local level. So at a moment like this, where I fear that you're probably not wrong. I take some solace. That Governor DeSantis is my governor. I think Texans should take some solace, that they are represented by -- by a Republican governor. The legislature there as well. So I -- I fear that you are right. I pray obviously, that no one -- it's hard.

I fear that it's something -- that something bad is happening. At the end of the day, of course. It does not mean that justices cannot do what they are supposed to do. So thank God they did that.

GLENN: So, Josh, have you looked into what the White House has been saying? The White House yesterday. In fact, do we have a clip of -- of this?

What the White House said yesterday, about the guns. And then they were turned to the -- the Scott us ruling, for Roe vs. Wade. Do we have that, please?

JOSH: Will the president accept this decision, even if he disagrees with it?

VOICE: I think it's going to come from the Supreme Court. So it's a decision we certainly are going to respond to. I'll leave it at that. Just like any other Supreme Court decision. Just like the one they did today on guns.

GLENN: So the White House won't say that they're going to accept it.

Which I don't think they will. They're talking now about taking doctors and moving them into places like Oklahoma or Texas, where abortions will be outlawed. And putting doctors on our military bases to perform abortions.

I mean, where does this go, when you have a government, that is in defiance of -- of one branch of the government?

JOSH: So there's a lot to unpack here. So we should start from first principles. The idea of judicial supremacy, and this is a peculiar thing, to say on a day like today, where such a pro-life victory has happened in Italy. But if we're going to be consistent here, the idea of judicial supremacy. The idea that the justices, have the sole and exclusive ability to interpret the Constitution for themselves. And no other Constitutional actor, in article one or article two, let alone the state. Has the ability to tentatively interpret it. That is erroneous. In fact, actually it was really Abraham Lincoln actually, who in the Dred Scott case, famously opposed judicial supremacy and flouted the Dred Scott ruling, at least as it pertains to everybody other than Dred Scott himself. I have actually argued, a former legal scholarship, in a law review article actually, that the Laconian view of how each branch of government should interpret the Constitution for itself, is correct.

Having said that. Having said that, there is a thing called prudence. And there is a thing called comedy. And in a moment like today, when it really does look like -- and I agree with you, that we are now bracing for riots through the streets. When the political rhetoric is at DEFCON one. When people are trying to assassinate Supreme Court justices. I think it would be -- at its bare minimum, a profoundly imprudent act. For the Biden administration, to try to undermine this ruling.

Now, what they might do, is they might try to kind of issue some kind of executive orders, or issue some regulations, that might try to kind of undermine it, at the edges here. But at the end of the day, the idea that this returns to the state. There's not really a whole lot they can do about that. Basically, at this point, throughout the country. Kentucky within West Virginia. Kansas. Whatever. If they want to go ahead and ban abortion, what can the Biden administration literally do about that? I mean, short of sending in the National Guard, to protect Planned Parenthood, if the state legislature of Kentucky goes ahead and bans it. There's not a whole lot they can do. And it's very difficult to envision a world, in which the Biden administration literally sends in troops to red states, to protect Planned Parenthood, if that state legislature goes ahead and bans it. So for practically speaking. This is a lot of tough talk and rhetoric. Obviously the campaign here in 2022. There's not really a whole lot that practically speaking, they can do to actually prevent red and purple states from enacting pro-life legislation.

GLENN: I'm glad to -- I'm glad to hear that. I know that they have been working on things. I mean, he has said, you know, there's executive orders, that I can employ. There are things that I can do. He's talked about a national public health emergency. Which I think is just -- is crazy. But I would hope, that the president would come out and say, we strongly disagree with this. And you're right. The court is not the end all. But the court did not end abortion. It just said, the people should decide. I think that's the best kind of court ruling, on any of it. The people should decide what this is. And send it back to the states. Josh, I thank you very much. Appreciate your time. Was there -- there was another ruling, that came out today. Was it important?

JOSH: Oh, no. In comparison to this. A total nothing burger. A 5-4 decision on Medicare reimbursement related. So nothing, honestly.

GLENN: Great. Thank you very much. Appreciate it, Josh. Josh Hammer, opinion editor for Newsweek. And the host of the Josh Hammer show.

GLENN: There are two things trending on twitter right now.

Number one is praise God.

Number two trend is Night of Rage.

Good verses evil.

Build up or tear down.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
