GLENN: Okay, let me finish giving you let me finish giving you the stuff on Sarah Palin that is in the paper and then we're going to do arguments on the idiots and then we'll take a couple of phone calls and then at the top of the hour I'm going to give you what all of this means. I'm sorry this has been a long drawn out piece but there is just so much in the paper that I have just never, ever witnessed before. They are going after Sarah Palin for religious purposes and what she said at her church. The only reason I'm saying this is because they don't understand it. When she says she urged the students to pray at her church that were graduating from her church. She urged the students to pray, quote, that our leaders, that our national leaders are sending soldiers out on a task that is from God. That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan and that plan is God's plan, end quote. Here's a political operative. Quote: It's pretty uncomfortable stuff. It's bad, it's really bad. It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out. This is again the you know what the best thing the media can do? Shut down the offices in New York City and move to Iowa. Move to Kansas I'm sorry, Kansas, to do this to you. And Iowa, I apologize really. This is hypothetical. They will never do it. So don't they are building fences right now. I'm sorry, don't. Screwing with the real estate markets right now, mass exodus out of Kansas and you know better, maybe they should move to Canada. You know what I'm saying? All right. This is what she is saying in this. In this video she goes on and she says, look, you are going to bring a lot of people to Jesus. This is church stuff. This is nothing Stu, you are not a quote/unquote churchgoer. You are not a guy that goes to church every Sunday.

STU: Not every Sunday.

GLENN: You go to church but you are not your stereotypical churchgoer.

STU: I mean, I watch the media. So I assume the stereotypical churchgoers charm snakes. So, no I'm not that person.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: I do not do that.

GLENN: But you're not even offended. You've seen this stuff.

STU: No, anyone who's been to a church has heard things like that. I mean, in a way it almost sounds like she's questioning whether it's the right thing to do. She's saying, I hope it's God's will.

GLENN: Let's pray that it is God's will. Who doesn't I pray every night. My family and I pray every single night for our President and for the leaders in congress that they hear your will and that they're brave enough to act on it. What is the problem with that? Nothing, unless you're an alien lifeform from the island of Manhattan, which is practically the island of Dr. Moreau.

Now, here's the next thing. And this is my favorite. How many times have you heard well, let me see if I can find let me just go down the list here and see if I can find it. Eleanor Clift on the McLaughlin group: If the media reaction is anything, it's literally laughter in many places across newsrooms. So they are laughing at her. Sally Quinn, Newsweek: It is political gimmick. I find it insulting to women, the Republican party and to the country. That one's kind of close. Dyan from the Washington Post, Palin if anything is less qualified for the vice presidency and the presidency than Harriet Miers was for the court. One big difference, Palin passes all the right wing litmus tests. Maureen Dowd, New York Times, said they have a tradition of nominating fun, bantamweight cheerleaders from the West. Hmmm, that's interesting. Charlie Cook, Charlie Rose said, I have a friend that a young person I had a friend tell a young person that they have three interviews to get a job as a server at Ruby Tuesday's. So this is like putting a hole for someone who hasn't even played on the national scene. Geraldine Ferraro had more, Dan Quayle had undergone more scrutiny, played a big stage on this. This is putting an enormous risk on someone that he didn't know.

You've got a couple of slams on the women but my favorite slam on women is that or from women now, women Progressives, that she's abandoned her child. I mean, look. Her family is in crisis clearly. Trig has Down Syndrome and her daughter is pregnant at 17. A family in crisis. She should not go serve as the vice president. It's irresponsible. Have you heard this one yet?

Let me ask you a question. Between your daughter having an unwed pregnancy, I don't even know if it was unwanted you about an unwed pregnancy, and your son being born with Down Syndrome, is your family in more stress, less stress or about the same stress? Dad's home, you got five kids. Mom's home. She's working. Dad is working, but the family is together. Is there more stress, less stress or about the same stress as this story. Do you have it, Dan? Can you play it?

VOICE: One of my earliest memories was being in that hospital. My dad always at our side. We, my brother and I, not the Senate, were all that he cared about. He decided not to take the oath of office. He said then Delaware can get another senator but my boys can't get another father.


[ APPLAUSE ]

GLENN: Now if the story stopped there, it would be consistent. If the story stopped there, you could make the argument. Remember, mom has just died in a car crash. There is no second parent here. Dad says, no, I'm not going to serve.

VOICE: However. However.

GLENN: However. Listen to this. Ted Kennedy. Yes.

VOICE: Hubert Humphrey. Men who have been tested in their own rites, convinced him to share, to serve.

GLENN: Yes.

VOICE: He was sworn in in the hospital at my bedside.

GLENN: In the hospital, at the bedside. Whoa.

VOICE: As a single parent, he decided to be there.

GLENN: Be there.

VOICE: To put us to bed, to be there when we woke up.

GLENN: Would he take phone calls?

VOICE: To make us breakfast. So he traveled to and from Washington.

GLENN: On the Amtrak?

VOICE: Four hours a day.

GLENN: Yes. How. Now, real quick, if you remember the beautiful film they made? Do you have the clip of the film? Listen to this.

VOICE: Losing my mom and sister in an automobile accident that my brother and I survived. What my dad did then was he came to my bedside and my brother's and he's never left it.

VOICE: When Joe was just elected, he made the commitment to take the train every single day.

GLENN: There's that damn train again.

VOICE: And no matter where he is or what he's doing.

GLENN: Could be in the Middle East.

VOICE: If one of the children call, he stops and takes the call.

GLENN: What a good guy. Hang on. Stop. What a good guy. He will stop and take the phone call. That is a stirring story, yet Sarah how could she abandon her family? Her family is in crisis. The guy this is not this is not the same as the guy standing in front and taking the oath of office, surrounded by the press in his children's hospital room after mom died two weeks before. That's not shameful. There's nothing that's heroic. Sarah should be ashamed of herself. Wow. You see what's happening? You see the double standard? And here's why this is going to backfire. If Sarah Palin is who she says she is and only time will tell. If she is who she says she is, Americans are first and foremost it's the only reason why we say handy capable over handicapped because we don't want to hurt anybody's feelings. Nobody wants to be mean. Nobody wants to be a bad person. We're Americans. We don't want to be unfair to anyone. But you are seeing fundamentally an unfairness that I have never witnessed before at this grand of a scale, ever, at any time have I ever witnessed anything in my lifetime like this. And Americans will not stand for it. Oh, by the way, just to clear up that whole, you know, "Your will be done, not mine," let me just give you this quote. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just and make me an instrument of your will, end quote. Heard it before, haven't you? Yeah. It's what Barack Obama wrote and put on a little paper and stuffed into the prayer wall and then later okayed for print.

The Biden Admin EXPANDED abortion access because they DON'T believe in the Constitution

Joshua Lott / Stringer, JOSEPH PREZIOSO / Contributor | Getty Images

This month has already produced an extreme example of why we need a functional and more conservative Congress in order for America to have a chance at moving forward—because the Left does not believe in the Constitution.

Sure, if you confronted a Democrat in Congress, they would probably claim some sort of allegiance to the Constitution—but as a practical matter, they do not believe in it.

Instead, the Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch. Why? Because it has the furthest reach through all the various departments, and it can move the fastest—in short, because it’s the most dictatorial. It only takes a department head to write a new memo, or even better, the President to sign a new executive order to carry the force of law.

The Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch.

Do you recall any of the Left’s favorite Supreme Court decisions over the years—something like gay marriage for example—and how Republicans immediately tried to subvert it, using the executive branch to try to nullify the decision? Yeah, that never happened. But that is exactly what Democrats have done in recent weeks to expand abortion access.

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions. When the miraculous overturning of Roe v. Wade happened last summer, President Biden called it “a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court.”

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions.

Recently the FDA approved local pharmacies to issue abortion pills. For the first 20 years after these pills were developed, they were not treated like typical prescription drugs. They had to be dispensed in-person by a doctor. That in-person requirement is now gone.

Keep in mind that the Left’s go-to line is that abortion is always about the health and safety of women, yet a 2021 peer-reviewed study found that chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions. Between 2002 and 2015, the rate of abortion-related ER visits following use of the abortion pills increased by 507 percent.

Chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions.

And now the Biden administration is making these less-safe abortions much more accessible. Thanks to the FDA’s rule change, Walgreens and CVS have already agreed to dispense abortion pills in states where abortion is legal—effectively turning these stores into new abortion clinics.

As for states that have abortion bans, "Team Biden" announced a new way around those too. Three weeks ago, the Justice Department issued a legal opinion that the U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal. What’s their rationale? That the sender cannot know for sure whether the recipient will use the pills illegally or not. So it’s totally okay.

The U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal.

Georgetown Law professor Lawrence Gostin told the Washington Post that this Justice Department opinion is “a major expansion of abortion access in the United States.”

So, to recap—the Biden administration has used the FDA, the Justice Department, and the Post Office, which all fall under the executive branch, to provide an end-run around the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision.

Expanding abortion was easy—simple policy tweaks and declarations that carry the force of law without an ounce of input from actual lawmakers in Congress—all because it comes from the grotesque, bloated, apparently pro-death executive branch.

Glenn is one of the most outspoken critics of the World Economic Forum and their vision to use crises to reconstruct the world order known as The Great Reset. The recent WEF summit in Davos confirms what Glenn has long warned about: globalist elites seek to upend our democracy, freedoms, and way of life to achieve their utopian climate goals. Here are 15 quotes from the 2023 Davos Summit, revealing their true intentions in their own words:

1. Saving the planet

When you hear the word, "Davos," the first thought that should pop into your mind is an elite group getting together to save the world from imminent climate disaster... at least they think of themselves that way. According to John Kerry:

I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet.

2. Private jets

What most people think when they hear the word "Davos" is a group of global elites flying in on private jets to talk about climate change... and yes, John Kerry does own a private jet, no matter how many times he denies it:

I fly commercial [...] Exclusively.

3. Global Collaboration Village

You always hear some weird, dystopian projects coming out of WEF, like "The Global Collaboration Village," a new metaverse community aimed at strengthening "global cooperation." It sounds like the next installment of Brave New World. According to Klaus Schwab, Founder and President of the WEF:

The Global Collaboration Village is the pioneering effort to use the metaverse for public good, to create global cooperation and to strengthen global cooperation in the metaverse or using metaverse technologies. For me, it's a dream coming true because the village allows the Forum to create a more larger and open platform where everybody can participate.

4. Climate revolution

However, the core theme throughout WEF summits is the immediate need for a climate revolution and how businesses are selfishly blocking the revolution because they want to make an extra buck. Here's how John Kerry summed up the sentiment:

How do we get there? The lesson I have learned in the last years [...] is money, money, money, money, money, money, money.

5. Do or die

This often turns into alarmist language, like having to choose between wealth and our planet's survival... Joyeeta Gupta, Professor of Environment and Development in the Global South at University of Amsterdam, said it eloquently:

If we do the minimum at this pivotable moment in our history, then we and our children – even if we are rich – will live in the danger zone. But if we – business people, governments, citizens, cities – take action today, then we and our children will have a future worth looking forward to.

6. Colossal risks

Potsdam Institute's director Johan Rockström, used similar language, claiming we are "taking colossal risks with the future of civilization":

We are taking colossal risks with the future of civilization on Earth, we are degrading the life support systems that we all depend on, we are actually pushing the entire Earth system to a point of destabilization, pushing Earth outside of the state that has supported civilization since we left the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

7. Rain bombs

"Colossal risks" like... rain bombs? We didn't make that up. Ask Al Gore:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs.

8. Survival comes down to this

How do we secure our survival? According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, we have to "end our addiction to fossil fuels." This entails wiping out our entire energy industry, displacing millions of workers, and relying on global governments to usher in a new green industry. In his words:

So, we need to act together to close the emissions gap, and that means to phase out progressively coal and supercharge the renewable revolution, to end the addiction to fossil fuels, and to stop our self-defeating war on nature.

9. Complete transformation

It isn't hyperbolic to argue that the globalist climate goals will completely transform the world economy. Even EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen admitted:

The net-zero transformation is already causing huge industrial, economic and geopolitical shifts – by far the quickest and the most pronounced in our lifetime. It is changing the nature of work and the shape of our industry.

10. Scientific necessity

Of course, to bring about this "net-zero" transformation, we will have to override small, "political expediencies" like democracy to do what is "scientifically necessary." According to Zurich Insurance Group’s head of sustainability risk John Scott:

We’re living in a world right now where what’s scientifically necessary, and what is politically expedient don’t match.

11. Illegal hate speech

Doing away with "political expediencies" would also require the censorship of dissent, which would likely manifest in hate-speech laws. When asked by Brian Stelter how the discussion of disinformation relates to everything else happening today in Davos, European Commission VP Věra Jourová shared this prediction:

Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law.

12. Climate first

We will also have to forego national interests on the international stage. America won't be able to advocate for policies and interests that benefit Americans. Instead, we will sacrifice national interests for the sake of global climate interests. French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said:

The key question is not China First, US First, Europe First. The key question for all of us is Climate First.

13. The role of war

We can also expect globalist leaders to use crises, like the war in Ukraine, to expedite the "net-zero transformation." Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz said:

Ultimately, our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2045 has been given an additional boost by Putin’s war. Now we have even more cause to move away from fossil fuels.

14. Blame game

Globalist leaders will continue to blame ALL of the crises in our society on climate change to justify the "net-zero transition," from the energy shortage to "mistrust, selfishness [and] xenophobia." Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez said:

Our present struggle is not only against Putin or the energy shortage. It is also against fear, mistrust, selfishness, xenophobia, and environmental disaster. And its outcome will define life in the West and beyond for decades to come.

15. Sacrifice for the greater good

While we sacrifice our national interests for the sake of the "greater global good," we can expect our foreign enemies, like China, to benefit. Suisse Chairman Axel Lehmann said:

The growth forecasts now for China is 4.5%. I would not personally be surprised when that would be topped.

Conclusion

Glenn has been clear about the distinction between wanting to transition to green practices on your own accord and being forced into that transition by globalist, unelected elites. Leaders at Davos will continue to use alarmist language to justify their crackdown on democracy and freedom to bring about their leftist utopia. We have to cut through the alarmist language and in order to protect our freedoms.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

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 ...
