MSNBC's embarrassing convention coverage...

GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. We have to I have to play the audio from MSNBC last night. You want to talk about playing to the crowd, listen to Keith Olbermann last night after Barack Obama walks off the stage. Listen to the crowd around the MSNBC booth and listen to his listen to his obnoxious, elitist, "Oh, let me quote some Shakespeare" kind of attitude. It's just nauseating. Here it is.

OLBERMANN: Take pride that this nation can produce men as speakers such as that.

GLENN: Stop just a second. Stu and Dan, Stu and Dan, you guys used to watch him on sports, right?

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Did you like him? Was he good at sports?

STU: He was okay. He wasn't one of my favorite sports center anchor but he was still good. Very sarcastic.

GLENN: When did he become this, "If you support him or you do not, you must recognize that someone like this can be produced from this great nation of ours.

DAN: This has to be a gradual decline because I remember actually being sort of cool because him and Dan Patrick were like the first two, like, sports center guys that made it fun and did all the cool little witty commentaries in between and I thought it was cool then but I don't know what happened.

GLENN: I mean, all of a sudden he is is he becoming more and more pretentious?

STU: Oh, God, it's an unending cycle. He is a perpetual motion machine as far as that goes.

GLENN: I mean, he is just becoming more and more I expect him to be I expect him to be, within a week, wearing robes and always clutching books. You know what I mean?

STU: Well, he is covering

GLENN: He's like, "Let me look it up in this novel that I was reading last night."

STU: Well, he was covering speeches given at Greek temples. So I mean, he is on his way.

GLENN: So it's there. So okay, go ahead.

OLBERMANN: That this nation can produce men as speakers such as that.

GLENN: Such as that.

OLBERMANN: For 42 minutes, not a sour note and spell binding throughout, in a way usually reserved for the creations of fiction.

GLENN: Oh.

OLBERMANN: An extraordinary political statement, almost a fully realized tough, crisp, insistent speech.

GLENN: Stop, stop! I can't take it! I mean, who, who speaks like this? First of all, who makes sure that every letter is enunciated correctly? Who speaks like this? I mean, I'm you know what? I want old tape on Keith Olbermann. Was he speaking like this when he was like, "And the blue dress got stains all over it." Now all of a sudden he is exact in the English language. Arghhh. Does it make your skin crawl, does anybody is it just me? I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Am I nitpicking? Go ahead, Dan.

OLBERMANN: In the tone and in the sense of cutting through the clutter, akin to the words that were given to the fictional title character in an Aaron sore kin film "The American President," only this "Cut the crap" moment is not fiction. This is the real thing out here.

GLENN: Listen. Listen to the crowd.


[ Cheers and Applause ]

GLENN: And they're pausing for it.

OLBERMANN: I'd love to find something to criticize about it. You got anything?

MATTHEWS: No.

GLENN: No! This is news coverage! This is news coverage! It's not like me, I'm on television, I'll tell you right up front: I'm a conservative; I hate this son of a bitch. I mean, I'll say things like that. This is news coverage! You've got to be kidding me! You've got to be kidding me. Look, just admit it. Just admit it. I will suck the pimple pus out of any pimple that he might have on his cheek. I'll do it. I mean, admit it! Oh. Instead, "I am a journalist, and I will give you the fair analysis of how much I love this man and you should, too. And by the way, for those critics of this show who would say that I would suck the pimple pus out of any pimple that he might have, off of his cheek, I of course would not suck the pimple pus out of his pimples that he might have on his cheek because this man is perfect." Agrhhh! All right. What was Chris Matthews saying?

OLBERMANN: Got anything?

MATTHEWS: No. You know, I've been criticized for saying he inspires me and to hell with my critics.

GLENN: I'd like to suck the pimple pus off his cheek, too, Keith. Jeez. You know what? Can I just say I think it's time for people to be honest. Look, I think Barack Obama is a dangerous, dangerous man. He is not qualified. He is a Marxist. That is my opinion. You don't agree with it, that's fine. But I'm going to tell you that right up front. I'm a conservative. I look at the Constitution differently than this man does. That's fine. Let's just be honest. I'll tell you when I'm on my TV show the same thing, and I'll tell you that I'm a conservative. These clowns on MSNBC, how are they getting away with it? How are they getting away with it? I have to tell you I'm a pariah. I walk around news people, I'm a pariah. I don't do any of that I don't do any of that. I would never do that, never. I think we should just change the advertising for MSNBC. I think we should just change it. I bet Keith Olbermann would call them an advert, I think we should change the adverts maybe to something like this.

VOICE: Tonight on NBC it's a complete recap of the Democratic National Convention. At 7:00 p.m. Chris Matthews fights back tears of joy as he evaluates the Democrats' leg tingling orgasm inducing pitch perfect speeches. Then at 8:00 p.m., liberal blogger Media Matters types words into Keith Olbermann's TelePrompTer that praise the Democrats' speeches. But Keith takes it a step further and tries to make love to the video monitor, replaying Obama's speech. Then at 9:00 p.m., it's MSNBC's newest hire, a liberal radio talk host with a resume chockful of bankrupting radio networks. And don't miss our coverage of the Republican national convention, as we put the bow tie back on Tucker Carlson and send him to Minneapolis in the Oscar Mayer Weiner truck. MSNBC, the home of journalism.

(Barack Obama music).

GLENN: Now, I don't know if you've heard this, but they are actually, Barack Obama, his campaign is confronting WGN radio. You tell me this is a group of people that understand free speech. The Obama campaign has organized its supporters to confront WGN in Chicago for having a critic of Barack Obama on the air. This is according to Obama's campaign. They wrote in an e mail to their supporters, WGN radio is giving right wing hatchet man Stanley Kurtz a forum to air his baseless, fearmongering, terrorist smears. He is currently scheduled to spend two solid hour blocks from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. pushing lies, distortions and manipulations about Barack and University of Illinois professor William Ayers. Kurtz, a conservative writer recently wrote an article for the National Review that looked at bow automatic a's ties to Ayers, yada, yada, yada, yada. Tell GN that by providing airtime with Kurtz, they are legit might have gone attacks from a smear merchant and lowering the standards of political discourse. It's absolutely unacceptable that WGN would give a slimy character assassination like Kurtz a slimy character assassin like Kurtz time for his divisive, destructive ranting on our public airways. Keyword: Public airwaves. At the very least they should offer sane, honest rebuttal to every one of Kurtz's lies. Amazing to me that they used the word "Public airwaves" because, gang, that is what's coming. This is what the this is what the campaign is doing. I'm making you a promise that if Barack Obama and congress is controlled by the left, voices like mine will be gone. Voices like mine. There is and you know what? I'm not all I'm not convinced that somebody like John McCain wouldn't reach over to the left if he were President and try to do it himself because we ain't doing him any favors, either. And I could see I mean, the man who gave us the McCain/Feingold, the biggest damage to the First Amendment, he's done more damage to free speech than any other single man alive, I believe, John McCain. I don't trust that he's not going to take away your voice and my voice as well, whether that be on radio, public airwaves or on the Internet. You know what, Stu? Do you know anything hang on. Give me the close of the Barack Obama, please.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...

Here are 5 RIDICULOUS moments from the Davos summit

Glenn has been warning about the dangers of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, which is the WEF's goal to utilize the crises like the COVID pandemic to create a leftist Utopia. Now, these goals continue to take shape at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos. Here are five ridiculous moments from this year's summit that shed light on their ultimate vision Glenn has been warning about.

1. Ex-CNN host Brian Stelter hosts the WEF panel on "disinformation," calling for the criminalization of "hate speech" in the U.S.

The former host of Reliable Sources was fired from CNN in 2022 for raking in the network's worst ratings since 2019. CNN's CEO at the time, Chris Licht, accused Stelter of "drawing ire from conservatives" for misrepresenting the facts and propagating false narratives to demonize conservatives. Licht fired Stelter because he was a liability to CNN's attempt to "re-brand" itself as a "reliable" news source.

You would think the World Economic Forum could have found a more credible host for its "disinformation," than Brian Stelter, and it comes with little surprise Stelter's panel called for the continued censorship of conservatives.

Stelter asked his panel, "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening today in Davos?"

Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourová answered "illegal hate speech" from right-wing extremists, and then called for the criminalization of hate speech in the U.S., asserting, "I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law" within the EU.

As former Trump advisor Stephen Miller pointed out, Stelter's refusal to further challenge Jourová's call for censorship is indicative of his failed career as a journalist.

2. Al Gore warns of "rain bombs," "boiling oceans," and "xenophobia" as a result of climate change.

Gore's speech "speaks" for itself...

After asserting that we're creating an "open sewer" in the troposphere, Gore exclaimed:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!

Speaking of refugees, Gore blamed the mass migrations of people on... you guessed it... climate change! Of course this leads to "xenophobia" and "fascism," so if we hate "xenophobia" and "fascism," we need to stop climate change IMMEDIATELY. Plus the rain bombs...

Does this sound reminiscent of the "Man-Bear-Pig?"

3. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann urges for 1 million people to NOT eat meat—predicting a "meatless future."

It wouldn't be a World Economic Forum summit if bugs didn't take center stage. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann said he was inspired by his 24-year-old daughter to stop eating meat to fight climate change and urged one million people to stop eating meat to balance out jet emissions—like the jets his fellow attendees used to travel to the conference?

Here's what he said:

If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems."

Of course, finding "alternative sources of protein" means... you guessed it... BUGS. The EU is already cutting down on cattle farms and promoting the building of insect farms to initiate this "protein transition."

4. John Kerry calls Davos attendees a "select group" with an "almost extraterrestrial" plan to save the planet.

Kerry's opening speech at Davos shows the type of elitism the attendees believe about themselves. They are the "special ones" who can gather at a Swiss resort town to discuss how to "save the planet" and the "little people" who are too ignorant to have a say in the matter. His words speak for themselves:

When you start to think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we — select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives — are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet [...] I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet [...] f you say that to most people, most people think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, or whatever, and there's no relationship. But really, that's where we are.

Well, not everyone was amused...

Businessman and conservative Tim Acheson called Kerry’s words, "Liberal delusions of grandeur." Jordan Peterson also tweeted, "Who are you going to sacrifice to save the planet, @JohnKerry -- and do you think and how will you ensure that they have any say in the matter?"

5. Davos attendees traveled on more than 1,000 private jets to the conference.

Greenspace, an environmentalist research group, estimates the total emissions used by Davos attendees on their private jets while traveling to the conference is equivalent to "about 350,000 average cars."

Greenspace also found that 53 percent of all private jet trips were short-haul flights of less than 470 nautical miles that "could have easily been train trips." This comes amid the EU's push to ban short-distance flights and opt for train travel instead, which many continue to point out.

Closing thoughts

What once sounded like conspiracy theories are now taking shape amongst the global elites at Davos. As Glenn continues to shed light on the dangers of the World Economic Forum, here's how YOU can fight back against their goals that threaten our freedoms and democracy.

In honor of the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, we would like to resurrect this gem from Glenn's Instagram archive. If "the Great Reset" doesn't work out, Schwab should consider reaching out to the Bond franchise for a Plan-B career.

PROOF the World Economic Forum wants you eating... BUGS!

As the World Economic Forum continues to meet in Davos about building a more "sustainable" future, Glenn's warning on a seemingly outlandish sustainability goal is becoming reality: eating bugs!

In its 2023 Global Risks Report, the World Economic Forum called for the "transition to net-zero, nature-positive food" to fight "food insecurity." In other words, the WEF imagines a future with minimal meat and maximum "zero-emissions food"—like bugs—as consumers' main source of protein. This is a part of "the Great Reset," the agenda proposed by the World Economic Forum in 2020, urging leaders to take advantage of the COVID-19 crisis to restructure the "world order" to bring about a leftist Utopia.

Major news outlets like the BBC have promoted insect farms as a sustainable food source to "reduce the reliance on everyday meat eating."

So what's the big concern about eating bugs? As the video points out, many cultures throughout the world have been eating insects for centuries—many consider them a delicacy! The issue with the WEF's push for insects isn't merely the option to eat bugs. If someone wants to munch on some grasshoppers, nothing is stopping them! The major concern is the way in which the WEF wants to mandate insect consumption, and, consequentially, destroy the beef industry.

According to the same 2023 Risk Report, the WEF calls for "radical policy measures" to bring about the food transition to zero-net-emissions food, like insects. This means imposing such a burden on the dairy and cattle industries that it renders them impossible to function, paving the way for a new insect industry.

In the Netherlands, the EU's largest food exporter, the government is forcing the farmers to sell their land to the state unless they reduce the amount of nitrogen fertilizer used. However, without nitrogen fertilizer, it is nearly impossible for the farmers to produce enough food to feed the nation, not to mention turn a profit. Moreover, without nitrogen fertilizer, it will be impossible for cattle farmers to produce enough food to feed their cows. This is an impossible burden for farmers to bear, and they often capitulate and sell their land to the government, paving the way for a burgeoning insect industry. Is it any coincidence the EU is pushing for insects as a means of "food sufficiency" and combatting climate change?

If you think eating insects is a novel issue from across the pond, think again. There is a growing push for a "beef tax" in the U.S. to disincentivize beef consumption and incentivize alternative "sustainable" protein sources...like bugs. According to 2021, data, U.S. beef is a 79-billion-dollar-per-year industry, employing million across the U.S.'s 700,000 cattle farms. These stats don't even include the U.S.'s dairy industry. If the global environmentalists have their way, this major U.S. industry will be wiped out, wreaking havoc on our economy. Yet this government control over the "everyday person's" consumption is all too tantalizing.

As the World Economic Forum convenes in Davos to discuss how to achieve their "sustainable utopia," Glenn continues to advocate for the free market and the ability to choose our own consumer goods, rather than giving global elites the power to consolidate and mandate their "approved goods" for widespread consumption. Though consuming insects may seem like an outlandish idea that has no impact on our daily lives, it is a part of a larger movement to control our way of life to achieve a more sustainable future, threatening both our economy and our basic freedoms.
