Marxists advise Obama?


The Obama National Anthem...

GLENN: Am I the only guy left in America that doesn't idolize Che, that doesn't think Fidel Castro is a great guy?

PAT: No, there's at least two of us.

GLENN: There's two?

PAT: There's at least two.

GLENN: Stu, are you in on this? Are you ‑‑

STU: I'm kind of mixed on him. I think he is a decent guy.

GLENN: Jeez.

PAT: He's kind of okay.

STU: Has some good qualities but also some issues.

GLENN: Also some issues, like Che just shooting people in the head.

STU: That's the negative side.

GLENN: That's the negative side.

STU: But there's a positive side. He has great T‑shirts.

GLENN: You know what?

STU: See?

GLENN: He does. I don't know why it is so hard to believe that the president of the United States may be a Marxist, when we have so many Marxists now coming out of the closet. They are no longer afraid to say it. Here is congresswoman from California, Congresswoman Diane Watson.

WATSON: It was just mentioned to me by our esteemed speaker, did anyone say anything about the Cuban health system. And let me tell you, before you say, oh, it's communist, you need to go down there and see what Fidel Castro put in place. And I want you to know now you can think whatever you want to about Fidel Castro, but he was one of the brightest leaders I have ever met.

GLENN: That is great. That is great.

WATSON: And, you know, the Cuban revolution that kicked out the wealthy,

Che Guevera did that.

PAT: Thank goodness.

WATSON: And then after they took over they went out among the population to find someone who could lead this new nation, and they found ‑‑ well, just leave it there.

GLENN: Why?

WATSON: An attorney by the name of Fidel Castro.

GLENN: Oh, that is ‑‑

PAT: After they kicked out the wealthy, comrade.

(Obama National Anthem plays).

GLENN: I ask you, why is it so hard for people to believe that there is a revolution going on in this country, that there is a Marxist revolution. You have Van Jones ‑‑ and by the way, I don't know if you've seen all the hacks that have gone after the facts on Van Jones. This guy is being canonized.

PAT: He's like a Bill Gates now. He's a ‑‑

GLENN: He's such a capitalist.

PAT: Oh, he's Mr. Capitalist.

GLENN: He is Rockefeller before the Rockefellers went communist. I mean, he is, he is amazing. He has been scrubbed clean. What was it that Joe Biden said about Barack Obama? He's clean and articulate. Joe Biden can even like Van Jones at this point, he's been scrubbed so clean. He is now being called on the Internet a great capitalist. We're going to correct the record here coming up in just a little while.

But you don't have to go to Van Jones to find Marxists. You now have Diane Watson. This is what she just said. Let's play it again and listen to the words of what she just said again. Who was she speaking to, Pat? Do you know?

PAT: I don't.

GLENN: It was a ‑‑ I mean, the audience is like oh, it's Fidel...

GRAY: Great.

GLENN: I don't know if I should even clap at that one.

WATSON: It was just mentioned to me by our esteemed speaker, did anyone say anything about the Cuban health system. And let me tell you, before you say, oh, it's commune ‑‑ you need to go down there and see what Fidel Castro put in place.

GLENN: Amen, sister.

WATSON: And I want you to know now you can think whatever you want to about the bill ‑‑

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Okay, let's think whatever we want to about Fidel Castro. He has kept his people in poverty for almost as long as Robert Byrd has been in the capital of the U.S. He has starved many of his people. He has imprisoned many of his people. He has executed many of his people. His people love it there so much that they take automobiles and try to escape and come to the United States. I mean, what else do I have to say about ‑‑

PAT: Which, by the way, there's no road between us and Cuba.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: They kind of float.

GLENN: It's weird, isn't it?

PAT: Float here in old Buicks.

GLENN: It's amazing to me that we have somebody who is in congress, currently in congress ‑‑ Stu, could you look up where Diane Watson is from? Guarantee you she's from the Bay Area, coincidence of coincidence.

PAT: 33rd district, yeah.

GLENN: Is that where it is?

PAT: I think, I think it's the Bay Area.

GLENN: Guarantee it. It's where Van Jones is from. It's San Francisco, it's Oakland. It's where all of these radicals are coming from. UC‑Berkeley. And nobody is ‑‑ we have got to stop looking at these people as people with a difference of opinion. They are revolutionaries. That's what Che was! Culver City, California? I don't ‑‑ yeah, that's down Los Angeles area, I think. Our apologies to anybody who's listening to us in New York and like, these dummies. Where did I say? Oh, yeah. No, New York is like, these dummies. But California's ‑‑ now, she's not the only one. Van Jones isn't the only one. Mark Lloyd isn 't the only one. Mark Lloyd is the FCC ‑‑ we've got an expose tonight on the FCC and this Internet ban that just seemingly just went away. Apparently people don't have a problem with Marxism. I think it's because they don't know it yet. But they ‑‑ on Friday Drudge released a report that Rockefeller, Jay Rockefeller is now introducing a presidential ability to take control of the Internet and shut it down. Well, I don't know if I want that from ‑‑ especially when you've got the FCC diversity czar talking about how great Che ‑‑ I'm sorry, how great Chavez is. And that important revolution. And that Chavez wouldn't have been thwarted the first time on his revolution if he would have had control of the radio stations and the television stations. If he would have taken the media seriously.

TRUMP: The twilight hour of socialism has arrived

The other day, at Florida International University in Miami, facing large American and Venezuelan flags, President Trump gave a rousing speech in Miami, including this line, the "twilight hour of socialism has arrived."

Trump went on to say:

Socialism is about one thing only—power for the ruling class. They want the power to decide who wins and who loses, who's up and who's down…and even who lives and who dies.

He then repeated a phrase that helped define his State of the Union address this year:

America will never be a socialist country.

Fittingly, Fox News posted an article yesterday exposing the overlooked evils of Che dangers of socialism that all too often disappear behind a flashy design on a t-shirt.

  1. Guevara said he killed people without regard to guilt or innocence. In an interview, Guevara said, "in times of excessive tension we cannot proceed weakly. At the Sierra Maestra, we executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation; it has the obligation to triumph."
  2. Humberto Fontova, author of "Exposing the Real Che Guevara," told Fox that Guevara created system that put gay people in labor camps. "The regime that Che Guevara co-founded is the only one in modern history in the Western Hemisphere to have herded gays into forced labor camps."
  3. Guevara opposed a free press: "In 1959, leftist journalist José Pardo Llada reported that Guevara told him: 'We must eliminate all newspapers; we cannot make a revolution with free press. Newspapers are instruments of the oligarchy.'"
  4. Guevara made racist statements: Guevara went on to write: "the black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving."

These are just some of the many historical examples of the failure of socialism. President Trump is right. If the frivolities of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Saunders catch on and spread, we could have an unbelievable problem on our hands.

Poor Jussie: His narrative is falling apart completely

Here's how the media works now: Find a story that confirms their narrative, run it constantly and relentlessly. When the real story comes out, minimize exposure of the correction. Repeat.

We're seeing this pattern play out over and over again.

Here are some of the knee-jerk reactions that the media had to this Jessie Smollett hoax, from Insider Edition, CNN, E! News, Headline News, CNBC, TMZ, to name a few:

And those are just the reactions on TV. It was just as bad, at times worse, in print and online. I'll give you one special example, however. Because, you know the situation is bad when TMZ is connecting the dots and seeing through this guy's story:

The sources say there were red flags from the get go. Cops were extremely suspicious when Jussie took them out to the area where he said he was attacked and pointed to an obscure camera saying how happy he was that the attack was on video. Turns out the camera was pointing in the wrong direction. Cops thought it was weird he knew the location of that camera. And there's this. We're told investigators didn't believe the 2 alleged attackers screamed 'This is MAGA country' because 'Not a single Trump supporter watches 'Empire.''

Here's the man himself, in an interview just days after the alleged beating…I'm sorry, the alleged "modern day lynching." Here he is in an interview with ABC News, complaining about people making up stuff:



Strong words, spoken by a man who, allegedly, created the whole narrative to begin with.

This compromise is an abomination

Zach Gibson/Getty Images

Three decades ago, "The Art of the Deal" made Donald Trump a household name. A lot has happened since then. But you can trace many of Trump's actions back to that book.

Art of the Deal:

In the end, you're measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish.

People laughed when he announced that he was running for President. And I mean that literally. Remember the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner when Obama roasted Trump, viciously, mocking the very idea that Trump could ever be President. Now, he's President.

You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.

This empire-building is a mark of Trump.

RELATED: 'Arrogant fool' Jim Acosta exposed MSM's dishonest border agenda — again.

The most recent example is the border wall. Yesterday, congress reached a compromise on funding for the border wall. Weeks of tense back-and-forth built up to that moment. At times, it seemed like neither side would budge. Trump stuck to his guns, the government shut down, Trump refused to budge, then, miraculously, the lights came back on again. The result was a compromise. Or at least that's how it appeared.

But really, Trump got what he wanted -- exactly what he wanted. He used the techniques he wrote about in The Art of the Deal:

My style of deal-making is quite simple and straightforward. I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I'm after.

From the start, he demanded $5.7 billion for construction of a border wall. It was a months' long tug-of-war that eventually resulted in yesterday's legislation, which would dedicate $1.4 billion. It would appear that that was what he was after all along. Moments before the vote, he did some last-minute pushing. A national emergency declaration, and suddenly the number is $8 billion.

Art of the Deal:

People think I'm a gambler. I've never gambled in my life. To me, a gambler is someone who plays slot machines. I prefer to own slot machines. It's a very good business being the house.

In a rare show of bipartisanship, Senate passed the legislation 83-16, and the House followed with 300-128. Today, Trump will sign the bill.

It's not even fair to call that a deal, really. A deal is what happens when you go to a car dealership, fully ready to buy a car, and the salesman says the right things. What Trump did is more like a car dealer selling an entire row of cars to someone who doesn't even have a licence. When Trump started, Democrats wouldn't even consider a wall, let alone pay for it.

Art of the Deal:

The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people's fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration—and a very effective form of promotion.

He started the wall on a chant, "Build the wall!" until he got what he wanted. He maneuvered like Don Draper, selling people something that they didn't even know they wanted, and convincing them that it is exactly what they've always needed.
