Biden: "Gird Your Loins", For the Next President "It's Like Cleaning Augean Stables"


GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Joe Biden should be forced by the media -- and he won't be -- should be forced by the media to explain this statement. This is from ABC News. Yesterday Joe Biden guaranteed that if elected Senator Barack Obama will be tested by an international crisis within his first six months in power and he will need supporters to stand by with him as he makes tough and possibly unpopular decisions. Mark my words, quoting, it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John F. Kennedy. Well, we know what that test was. That test was Russia and the Cuban missile crisis. That's not a small test. Anybody who was alive -- I was not. If anyone who was alive back then, they will tell you it was a frightening, frightening time, where we thought the entire world was going to be vaporized and everyone would be dead. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking -- exactly what we have told you on this program. We're about to -- by the way, boy, this is just -- I mean, there is just food in this one for two weeks. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John F. Kennedy." Think back to what I have told you about the perfect storm. Think back to what I have told you about the weight on this table. I have told you that if any -- if there's additional pressure or sudden pressure on this table, if there is a crisis like the Cuban missile crisis, it could cause this table to fall. It could -- there's just no more pressure that this table can take. And that's why the world is looking right now. That's why the world wants to test this guy. That's why our enemies want to push us up against the wall, because we are so vulnerable right now. We're about to elect a 47-year-old brilliant senator President of the United States of America. Remember, I said it here with you. If you don't remember anything else I said, quoting Joe Biden: Watch, we're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis to test the mettle of this guy. I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate, and he's going to need help, and the kind of help he's going to need, he's going to need you, not financially to help him, we're going to need you to use your influence, your influence within the community to stand with him. Because it's not going to be apparent initially, it's not going to be apparent that we're right. Gird your loins. We're going to win with your weapon. God willing, we're going to win but this is not going to be an easy ride. This President, the next President is going to be left with the most significant task. It's like cleaning stables but it's more than that. This is just more than that, literally. Think about it. This is more than just a capital crisis. This is more than just markets. This is a systematic problem that we have with this economy.

He said, I forgot more about foreign policy than most of my colleagues now and I'm not being falsely humble with you. I think I can be value added, but this guy has it. This guy has it. He is going to need your help because I promise you, we're all going to be sitting here a year from now saying, oh, my God, why, why are they there in the polls, why is the polling so down, why is this thing so tough.



Do you hear this? This is not change and hope. Do you hear this? He is promising us, he has said "I promise you" a couple of times. He has said "I guarantee you" a couple of times. This is Joe Biden. "I promise you we're going to be sitting here a year from now going oh, my God," quoting, "Why are they there in the polls, why is the polling so down, why is this thing so tough. We're going to have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years. So I'm asking you now, I'm asking you, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you're going to have to reinforce us. There are going to be a lot of you who want to go, whoa, wait a minute, whoa, whoa, whoa; I don't know about that decision because if you think the decision is sound when they're made, which I believe you they will be when they're made, they're not likely going to be as popular as they are sound because if they're popular, they're probably not sound." Whew.

He then went on to foreign policy again and said, "We don't have the military capacity, nor have we ever quite frankly in the last 20 years to dictate outcomes." In other words, we haven't had, according to Joe Biden, the military capacity in 20 years to win a war. I then said, "I probably shouldn't have said all of this because it's dawned on me that the press is here. But these guys have left us in a God-awful place. We have the ability to straighten out. It's going to take some time. I ask you to stay with us. Just stay with us." What the hell does that even mean?

Well, let's go a couple of places. Let's go on. Let's just -- since he mentioned the Middle East and Russia as possibilities, let's go a couple of ways. Let's go the Middle East. Let's say Russia and Iran block the Strait of Hormuz. Let's say Russia and Iran. Let's say Iran decides to announce that they are going to load pay loads of nuclear missiles. Do we strike? Do we not strike? Conventional wisdom would tell you that Barack Obama would not strike, but he's preparing for something unpopular, and he's talking directly to liberals. So that would lead you, if it would be that scenario, that would lead you to believe that we would strike.

I will tell you this. When it comes to foreign policy, I will just tell you what the President told me as I sat in the Oval Office. It was a year and a half ago. It was the day that Barack Obama said that he was going to fly planes over into Pakistan and that will cause World War III. Striking Iran is World War III. We are on the precipice. It's got to be right the first time. There's no more room to say, oh, well, it's not really working. There's no more room left. What the President said to me when I heard that statement from Barack Obama, he said, "Listen. No matter who wins, we are so boxed in, when they see the reports and the briefings that I see every day and they understand what's truly happening in the world, believe me, they will realize they have very few options. There's not going to be a lot done differently.

Now, is it a possibility that that's what he's talking about, that he's talking to his liberal friends? Maybe he's talking about an Iranian strike. Maybe he's talking about not doing anything on an Iranian strike. Maybe he's talking about going into Pakistan because this is the same speech where he talked about Osama Bin Laden is in Pakistan, and Pakistan is bristling with nuclear weapons. Is he talking about the possibility of going in there? Because that sure wouldn't look right. But it would to the dummies.

Is it a possibility, because he was talking about the economy, is it a possibility that he's talking about an international crisis, not military but an international crisis that is brewing all around the world? The rest of the world is blaming us for what has gone on. And you know what? The rest of the world had the same kind of policies that we do. The rest of the world had the same kind of spending. The rest of the -- England spent. They were deep into the 125% loans long before we were. These, the rest of the world had debt long before we did. But here's where they have a point. Here's where the rest of the world is starting to line up and blame us and that is what we've done to our dollar. And right now people on television will tell you, "Oh, don't worry about the dollar; look, it's gaining value because theirs is losing value. We're the safest." That's like, you know, that's -- honestly that's the end of Titanic. Okay, so the headboard was floating out there. That doesn't make the headboard a lifeboat. It makes it a headboard. It just happens to be better than some of the other things like people that they are grabbing onto and forcing down. It's still a headboard. It's not a lifeboat. And what we're doing to the headboard, the American dollar, is trashing it day after day after day after day.



For the depressing news you are reading, here's a cute animal video...


There's another story. I just looked up at the television and they are talking about yet another stimulus package. I don't know if you saw this, but Fannie and Freddie are bailing out the bad mortgages. Well, what the heck was the $700 billion for? Why is Freddie and Fannie taking on additional mortgages? This money is not coming from China. This money is not coming from anywhere except the printing presses. And the rest of the world is saying, "What are you doing? You promised us in 1946 that you would have gold. Then in 1972 you promised you wouldn't trash your dollar but you were going to get off the gold standard. And now? Now what? Now you've trashed it. Now you've reached the top of the debt limit."

See, there was the gold standard, and when we got off the gold standard, we went to the debt standard. The debt standard is now too much. We got off the gold standard because of Johnson. We had the war in Vietnam and then we decided we're going to do the Great Society. So we needed to have more money to pay for the Great Society. Well, when we didn't have enough money because bed to stay on the gold standard, we were like, "Okay, you know what? Let's just get off the gold standard. Let's print some more money but not so much, just enough to make this Great Society work. Because remember debt, in your house debt's bad. But debt for the United States government? That's not bad. Well, now as we approach our first $1 trillion deficit in one year, we've hit the top of our debt standard. Nobody's going to want to loan to us. And so what happens? When we can't fund it through loans or we can't afford the interest, we'll just start printing more money. And we're printing it like there's no tomorrow. The line on the chart of printing money, you hit October and it goes straight up. Well, this is what leads to things like bread in a wheelbarrow.

So what happens if maybe he's talking about there's going to be an international crisis and that international crisis revolves around the Great Depression 2? What about that? And it might look very unpopular, but I'm going to need your help. And maybe that's one global financial system. Maybe it's one global currency because that's what China and France and everybody else is asking for now, one global currency. Gird your loins. "Gird your loins" are his words. This is not the campaign of hope and change. This is not the "We just need to get in there." This is not the message that you're getting from Wall Street. This is not the message that you're getting from any of the business leaders. This is not the message that you're getting from the Fed or the Treasury. You are not getting this. You are not getting that a guy could go -- Barack Obama could be Jesus to a year from now. Quote: I guarantee you you are going to be saying, oh, my God, why are they there in the polls," where he a year in advance is begging for you to stick with him. And if things are that bad in the polls and he knows public opinion, he knows, quote, what is right, but the American people will not know what is right -- do you hear this? He knows, Barack Obama knows what's right but you will not know what is right and so he's saying, "We're going to need your influence because the little people will disagree with it," how do you stop, how do you stop disenfranchisement from being a movement? How do you stop people when the government says "We know, little person, what is right and you're wrong and in time we'll prove you wrong and you'll know. So sit there and shut up." What does that mean about the Fairness Doctrine? How are they going to let voices like mine or Rush or Sean, how are they going to let voices like this say they're wrong! They won't. And it will be an international crisis that Joe Biden has just guaranteed us, if it takes six months. This is why I've been saying you've got to prepare because those who are prepared will not fear. Those who will prepare can lead the way. Those who are prepared, who understand what's coming, what they're talking about. I told you before none of these people are telling you the truth. This is the closest to the truth I've heard any of these people say. Those who are prepared will be able to lead and calm those around them that are panicking.

We've finally heard some news on the migrant caravan. Some of the migrants have given up and gone back home, but some are still there waiting at the border. A leader representing the group has decided to step forward, and he's made out a list of... demands. Remember when I said back in October that this caravan was originally formed as a Leftist act against the Honduran government by people with ties to Venezuela and Cuba? Well what do you know… wait until you hear who this guy is.

RELATED: BOMBSHELL: Filmmaker Ami Horowitz blows the lid off media's deceit about the migrant caravan

Alfonso Guerrero personally walked into the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, Mexico with a list of demands from the caravan. Get a load of this. The caravan is demanding that if they're not granted immediate asylum they want the following:

  1. Fifty thousand dollars in cash for every caravan member (which would be a total of tens of millions).
  2. The immediate removal of all U.S. economic and military assets in Honduras.

Failure to comply to these demands will result in the caravan continuing to try and penetrate the U.S. border.

I mean, if you're trying to appear like some grassroots movement for migrants that are just escaping the dangers of their own country, you might want to - oh I don't know - tone down the crazy Leftist freedom fighter schtick. I'm just saying. Demanding millions of dollars AND the removal of the U.S. military from Honduras kinda just screams, "Hey check me out. I'm a Marxist terrorist." It would have been basically the same thing if he just charged up to the embassy wearing a beret and shouted "Viva la Revolution!!" while firing off an RPG.

Well, it turns out this isn't the first time Mr Guerrero has tried to claim asylum. Back in 1987 he claimed asylum in Mexico after being suspected by the Honduran and U.S. government for - wait for it - left wing terrorism… Jeez, you know you really can't make this stuff up. This is INSANE. Here's the story…

This is ridiculous. Can we all now agree that this entire charade is a fraudulent scam?

In 1987 Honduras was ground zero for U.S. and Soviet proxy forces fighting the Cold War. The Contra rebels were actually based there, and leftists terrorists would sometimes carry out operations in the country in response. On August 8th a bomb was thrown into the China Palace restaurant, just a few miles from the U.S. military base in Honduras. Six American soldiers were injured in the blast. Alfonso Guerrero was the primary suspect. He escaped to Mexico and claimed asylum. The Reagan Administration charged the Mexican government for quote "harboring a terrorist" for granting Guerrero protection.

But all the caravan wants is a better life in the United States… oh and millions of dollars AND a list of political demands for their home country. This is ridiculous. Can we all now agree that this entire charade is a fraudulent scam? This is a Leftist political stunt. It has been since the very beginning.

TRANS-INSANITY: Not everyone is bowing down to the PC culture

DOMINIQUE FAGET/AFP/Getty Images

Here's an incident that you won't hear about anywhere else. It doesn't fit the mainstream media's transgender narrative, their fairy tale of infinite genders, where any criticism is viewed as transphobic and taboo and certainly not something that the majority of Americans think or feel.

Last week, in West Point, Virginia, a high school French teacher named Peter Vlaming was fired after a five-and-a-half hour hearing that centered on his refusal to use a transgender student's specific gender pronouns. Vlaming said that doing so violated his religious beliefs.

RELATED: There is no truth anymore

Vlaming's lawyer Shawn Voyles told reporters:

Tolerance is a two-way street. Unfortunately, tolerance on the part of the school division has been noticeably absent. It chose to impose its own orthodoxy on Mr. Vlaming and fired him because he didn't relinquish his rights protected by the First Amendment.

School administrators fired Vlaming "due to this insubordination and repeated refusal to comply with directives made to him by multiple WPPS administrators."

The school justified the firing by pointing to a set of policies aimed at curbing misgendering of transgender students.

Vlaming's lawyer disputed this, saying that the policies include no such mention of transgenderism, adding that:

My client respects the rights of all students, including this student's rights; he simply asked that his rights be respected as well. Unfortunately, the school division refused to consider any solutions that would respect the freedoms of everyone involved.

There is a ray of hope in all of this, though. The students. A group of students from the school immediately staged a walkout in protest of Vlaming's firing.

One student told reporters:

I feel like everyone should have the freedom of speech and the freedom of religion as well.

Students lined up outside the school with signs that said, "Free Vlam." Another included a quote from Ben Shapiro: "Facts don't care about your feelings." Another read "You can't impose delusion onto us."

You can sigh a sigh of relief. There's hope for the future yet.

Whether it's a 'War on Christmas' or just progressivism run amok, the song 'Baby It's Cold Outside' has been firmly in the crosshairs this holiday season. Here are just a few of the headlines making the rounds:

Should radio stations stop playing 'Baby, It's Cold Outside'?

They range from the previous as questioning and then roll right into the following and assume facts not in evidence.

'Baby, It's Cold Outside,' Seen As Sexist, Frozen Out by Radio Stations

It may be seen as sexist but according to one radio stations polling, only about 5% do. Then they go from saying it's sexist to straight up claiming it as a rape song.

Radio Bans 'Baby It's Cold Outside' Over Claims It's A Rape Song, English Teacher Explains Its Real Meaning

And then they just flat out call for its retirement.

Is it time to retire 'Baby, It's Cold Outside'?

The left might think they are woke and on the right side of history in the wake of the #MeToo movement — but how shocked do you think they'd be if they knew Glenn beat them to the punch over a decade ago? Don't believe me? Take a listen to this clip from our audio vault from 2008.

Christmas has arrived early for mainstream media. They have their first sentencing of a major player in President Trump's inner circle. Yesterday, Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen was sentenced by a federal judge in Manhattan. How did it come to this and how did Cohen explain himself to the judge? We start there next…

President Trump's former attorney, 52-year-old Michael Cohen, is going to jail. Well, it will probably be one of those federal prison camps with a dorm that's more like a college campus. But he's going to be locked up. A federal judge sentenced him to three years in prison for financial crimes, and two months for lying to Congress. He also ordered Cohen to pay $2 million in financial penalties. The judge called Cohen's misdeeds a "veritable smorgasbord of criminal conduct."

RELATED: Michael Cohen's plea deal won't lessen Trump's support. Here's why.

The judge said:

As a lawyer, Mr. Cohen should have known better. While Mr. Cohen is taking steps to mitigate his criminal conduct by pleading guilty and volunteering useful information to prosecutors, that does not wipe the slate clean.

Cohen pled guilty in August to eight criminal charges in two different cases. One brought by special counsel Robert Muller for Cohen's lying to Congress about a potential Trump Tower project in Moscow. The second was for bank-fraud, tax, and campaign finance violations brought by federal prosecutors in New York.

President Trump said recently that Cohen has simply been lying to get a reduced sentence for crimes that have nothing to do with him. Cohen was very emotional as he apologized to the judge, saying:

It was my own weakness and a blind loyalty to this man that led me to choose a path of darkness over light. Time and time again I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds rather than to listen to my own inner voice and my moral compass.

The left thinks that Cohen's sentencing marks the beginning of the end for Trump's presidency. They may be ultimately disappointed in that regard. But this does intensify the long national nightmare of the Muller investigation that seems to have no end in sight.
