Right now up in England, over in England the MI5, which is their FBI, says they have police officers and basically FBI officers that are Al-Qaeda spies, that they have been infiltrated by Al-Qaeda. London, they are calling it Londonistan now. London is already flirting with Sharia law. It's a totally different world and most people don't even notice it. Most people don't even see it. Now NYU, NYU is in some hot water with their students because their students just found out that NYU is making an Abu Dhabi campus of NYU and the students are saying, wait a minute, hang on just a second; how are you doing this, NYU? How are you doing this? The workers rights in Abu Dhabi are abysmal. I thought you were for socialism. I thought you were for workers rights. How about women's rights in Abu Dhabi? Abysmal. I thought we thought women were fantastic. What about gay rights? Abu Dhabi? NYU doesn't care because NYU can make money in Abu Dhabi. You have Harvard now. Whether or not they're going to give in, I put money that they are going to give in because that's what they do. At Harvard Muslims are saying they want times for Muslim-only women to go to the gym so non-Muslims wouldn't be able to go to the gym. Why not? We're making footbaths in other public universities. Why not? We've got footbaths for Muslims to say their prayers in airports! Why not? Why not?

Now, some would say, bloggers at Harvard are saying you're in America; you need to assimilate. I think the better response is, you're in America. Here's an idea. Why don't you build with your own money a Muslim-only gym. If you want to serve your population, serve your population and make money. What are you doing? Why are you trying to -- this is the beginning of Sharia law. Ask the people in the Sudan. They all said, oh, no, well, that would -- this is just a small concession; that's no big deal. It would never get to this. Look at the Sudan now. This is the way it starts over and over and over and over again. And why? Why just leave it as assimilate? After.

A friend of mine wrote me this morning one of the best success stories in gym was Lucille Roberts. Lucille Roberts came to this country from Russia. Her family had escaped the Soviet Union. She started GYMS for women only. She became a multimillionaire, hugely successful businesswoman. From Russia to the USA and freedom, independence, even a spot on the USA Olympic organizing committee. She made a business because she found a hole in the market. How many women do you know that do not want to go to the gym because of all the models that are hanging out, because everybody in the thongs? They just want to go with people that look like them. They don't want to go into, you know, a beauty contest. It's nothing but a meat market. So what happened? GYMS sprang up all over the country for women that just want to go, you know, in shorts and work out and not feel intimidated and not be a meat market. There's a market for it. If there's a market for Muslim-only GYMS, let the market prevail.

Why force everybody at Harvard to do this? Oh, I remember, political correctness. One guy who I've got to tell you is not politically correct is Brad Thor. He is the author of a book called The Last Patriot which comes out in July and I want to talk to him about what we were just talking about. I also want to talk to him a little bit about, there was a veto over the weekend on waterboarding. Let me tell you something. Waterboarding, the only reason why congress did anything on waterboarding now is because it's right up against the presidential election. They want waterboarding. And to quote Jack Nicholson, they need waterboarding. They want somebody to do it. They wanted George Bush to veto this so they could paint them like a hate monger and then they can come off smelling like roses. They know they can't overturn the veto. There was no reason why they passed this in the first place.

Is Brad Thor on with us now?

THOR: Yeah, hi, Glenn.

GLENN: Hey, Brad, how are you doing?

THOR: I'm well. Thanks, how are you doing?

GLENN: Good. Did you get my e-mail last night?

THOR: I got it this morning. Thank you.

GLENN: Do you say that sincerely?

THOR: I say it completely sincerely, Glenn. It knocked the wind out of me. I can't believe all the terrific things you said about it.

GLENN: Did you read the e-mail?

THOR: I read the whole thing and it's funny because you wanted me to clarify some things in the book so people understood how serious this threat is and to delineate between fact and fiction on the book and I'm currently working on an afterword for the novel right now. It's got to be done this week.

GLENN: Is that what you're doing?

THOR: Yeah, it is.

GLENN: That's fantastic because, you know, when I read it, I thought you're Michael Creighton here on global warming except Michael Creighton only got a few death threats from, you know, a few environmentalist whack jobs. With what you're writing as fiction, you've got to be really careful, my friend.

THOR: Yeah, I agree with you. I do have to be careful. We're taking it seriously. But Glenn, at the end of the day if I hear the word "Change" out of politicians one more time and I know nothing's going to come from any of them, I mean, how can I as someone who's so concerned about the threat of Islamic extremism vote by guys who want to do suicide bomber belt and then guys who want to dismantle the Constitution peacefully, quietly from within this country, how can I not say something?

GLENN: I agree with you. I agree with you, Brad. I mean, it is time for good men to stand up and do something and say something, most importantly over doing something, saying something. I get it.

THOR: Glenn, all good men and women to come to the aid of their country, not their party. No more parties. It's not about right and left in this country. It's about right and wrong.

GLENN: Let me just take a few things. First of all, I know you're an expert, if you will, on torture in the intelligence community because of what you do for a living. You have to understand torture, and we've talked about it in one of your last books, comes out. There's -- you've made yourself clear on a few torture things. Help me out on why, other than politics, would this bill come up and be presented to the President this last weekend, him veto it over the weekend?

THOR: Well, I think you hit the nail right on the head. This is a big thing people can, you know, they can stage mock waterboarding in front of the capitol and off the leftist weirdos in this country. Let's get something straight. Waterboarding's only been done to a couple of people, period. This is something that it's an extreme interrogation technique that works. We've talked about this before. It's not whether torture or not should be permissible in this country as Charles Krauthammer said. It's when should it be permissible. I mean, we're good people. You don't have -- these are CIA people who have been trained specifically to extract this information. They are not doing this for pleasure. They are doing this because they need the information and once they get the information, it stops. But if you knew that a bomb was going to go off in New York City, a nuke, you would want that stopped. If you had some guy there and "Pretty please" wasn't working, then let's step it up.

GLENN: Yeah.

THOR: A chance to embarrass President Bush -- not even attempt. To attempt to embarrass him, to discredit him. You know, the left wants to tie all these things up. I tell you I want a President who's willing to do what's necessary to keep our country safe, and I'd like to see what Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama would do if they were faced with a situation where they captured and Abu or a Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. What would they do? Well, that waterboarding thing, it's not so nice. Let's give them a cup of tea and talk.

GLENN: Brad, in the book that's coming out, I have to tell you I've never Googled a book more than yours, never, not even Jonah Goldberg's book.

THOR: Wow.

GLENN: I can't tell you how many times I put this book down and went to the Internet and Googled and tried to find facts that kind of fit this scenario. In it you talk about a Pentagon official that is actually an enemy.

THOR: Correct.

GLENN: And he's infiltrated into the Pentagon. I don't know if you saw the MI5. MI5 says that they have four of their own working as Al-Qaeda spies.

THOR: In London metro police department. Glenn, it's very -- and the reason I was floored by your e-mail is you said, Brad, this is the Islamic da Vinci code and that for me was incredible, incredible praise. When I did this, what's interesting is the -- we understand and a lot of people want to pass them off as turban idiots that live in the deserts. Too many people in this country don't respect the determination, the intelligence and the creativity of our enemy and they decided a long time ago, we just found out as American people, we've got to play a page out of their playbook during the Holy Land Foundation trial down in Dallas, where in the 1970s the very, very evil Muslim brotherhood decided, let's bifurcate what we're doing here. Let's not only do the aggressive bombing, killing men and women, children, but let's also gamble America and use -- let's form a bunch of Muslim organizations. C.A.R.E. is an organization that's an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial that's been linked repeatedly with the Muslim brotherhood and they talked about let's set these organizations up that look like Muslim benevolence organizations, they look like sieve rights organizations. Like who would say the NAACP is a terrorist organization and they are not bad people and let's do the same thing for Muslims but while we've hoodwinked the American public, let's try to start to tear apart the Constitution and democracy from within. I'm not making these up. These documents exist and that's exactly what these people are trying to do. And too many Americans are more concerned about their McDonald's drive-ins and who is going to be the next contestant to get disqualified from American Idol than to look at this that's living daily among us.

GLENN: What do you think's going to happen with Harvard and the gyms?

THOR: Well, I tell you what, the Harvard thing is absolutely reprehensible. To say this there ought to be Muslim only prayer times in a certain room that's set aside for students to pray in which has happened at other universities in this country or to say that the gym should only be allowed certain time for Muslim women, that's discrimination. And you are seeing into how Islam can keep women down in many circumstances. They tried to do this in Australia and the Australian universities told them to take a hike. They said absolutely not. We are a secular society, we separate between church and state in a secular university and no, if you want to create a Muslim university like Bob Jones University, go ahead and do it. I think it's a big mistake and this is the death by a thousand politically correct paper cuts. This is Sharia inch by inch. This is how this gets implanted in your country. You know, I look at places in Europe. Europe is the canary in the coal mine and if we want to see how bad it can get here with multiculturalism and trying to make everybody happy instead of saying you need to be an American first and subscribe to our values in America, look to Europe. There are places women who are not Muslim will not go in Europe because they will be raped if they are not wearing the hijab, if they are not wearing the headscarf and they are not even Muslim.

GLENN: Brad, always good talking to you, my friend.

THOR: You, too, Glenn, thank you.

GLENN: Hey, listen. Are you -- write me back and tell me the answer to the last, the last thing that I wrote you in this e-mail, will you?

THOR: You bet. I will.

GLENN: Thank you very much.

THOR: Thanks, Glenn.

GLENN: Thank you.

THOR: Bye-bye.

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.

'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.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?
