GLENN: This is, you know, this is an amazing day in American history and I will tell you that ‑‑ I'll be real honest with you.  I went through the same thing you are probably feeling today and that is, you've got to be kidding me.  You probably are feeling a little bit like I did over the weekend because I knew this was ‑‑ I knew this was coming over the, you know, oh, last few days, and I think most Americans did that they were not going to ‑‑ but we held out hope ‑‑ they were not going to stop.  This proves everything that we said on this program to be right and accurate.  I said after Scott Brown, they will triangulate if they're politicians.  If they are radical revolutionaries, they will press forward and they will step on the gas.  And Saul Alinsky tells them do everything you must do to win. The ends justify the means.  I told you that, that if they are politicians, they will slow down.  If they are revolutionaries, they will speed up.  And that's exactly what they've done.  Led by Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi.  Rahm Emanuel wanted to slow down. The radical revolutionaries said "Go."  Well, I have news for them.  Thank you.  Thank you for proving me right.  Thank you for proving me right in a way that Americans now from coast to coast understand because they've seen it.


 


They call this a historic moment, and it is.  Because never in my life did I dream that this would happen in our country, that no matter what it took, bribery, corruption, collusion, threats, arm‑twisting, no matter what it took, they'd ram it through.  This is historic. What happened last night will be remembered as a black spot on this nation's history for all time.  It is a turning point.  It will ‑‑ it does not ‑‑ you tell me how it fits next to the moon landing.  You tell me how this fits anywhere near the people who would not get up from the counter.  You tell me.  You tell me how this is civil rights.  You tell me how this has honor or integrity.  It doesn't.  The fruit of this tree is extraordinarily evil.  The fruit of this tree is corrupt and poison.  This has nothing to do with our founders.  Nancy Pelosi couldn't even get it right last night.  She's like, "And this and the declaration of... it's... pursuit of happiness and now we can all be... healthier when we're pursuing our happiness."  Shut up, you!  But I want to thank them, I want to thank them from the core of my being because I will tell you I have heard from some powerful, powerful Democrats who have said, I can't, I ‑‑ I mean, what happened?  I will tell you what happened.  Exactly what I told you would happen when you put Michael Moore and his cottage cheese ass right next to Jimmy Carter.  You think, I said, you think you are using these radical socialist, communist progressives, but they are using you, and they will eat you.  You think he got that big by eating Cheetos?  He's eating the party.  The Democratic Party is dead.  As my grandparents and as you knew it and as many Democrats knew, it is dead.  There is no place in the Democratic Party.  You want to talk about a big tent:  Unless you went along with Nancy Pelosi, you are out and you will be destroyed.  That was the message.  There is no ‑‑ there's not even a, there's not one chair in the tent.  The Democratic Party is the progressive Socialist Party, period.  If you are a Democrat, you better get while you can.  Or you will be remembered.  You will be remembered as an enemy of the republic.  The progressives are an enemy to the Constitution.  Look it up.  No matter what they tell you now, just like Barack Obama said, "Oh, I've been clear in the past.  I'm not for universal healthcare."  Yes, he is.  Yes, he is.  And in five years you will see.  Because that's all we'll have.


 


I've got an amazing quote from Al Sharpton to play for you about socialism.  I have to thank the progressives for being true to who they are.  And now it is time for Americans to be true to who they are.  And it's happening.  May I just give just the opening, healthcare reform and the radicalization of Betsy and Robbie.  Tonight the House of Representatives passed historic legislation with President Obama's healthcare package and some pundits are saying the battle for healthcare is over.  But far from being over, writes the Huffington Post.  I'm afraid a deeply partisan battle, dare I say a war, is only beginning because of the manner in which this victory was won.  I say this because two friends of mine, Betsy and Robbie, formerly apolitical friends who have been radicalized by the experience of the last 15 months and if they are any indication of the mood of the country I believe they are, the Democratic Party is in for a political wake‑up call of historic proportions in November.


 


No, I got news for ya, and I want to thank the progressives.  Thank you, Jesus, for this miracle.  Because this is not a message that is just going to go to the Democratic Party.  Oh, no, my friends.  This is going to be a message that is going to go to the progressives of any party.  John McCain, Lindsey Graham, get the hell out of the way.  Get your hands off of the Constitution, my friend, because we're coming.  We're coming and we are coming ‑‑ see, you know what?  The people who have won, the people who have all of this, they are the people that have been looking for the handouts.  They are the people who are saying, "Oh, I can't do it on my own."  Look out, brother, because America's about to roll up her sleeves.  We're rolling up our sleeves.  The people who actually work our ass off for a living, we got nothing else better to do now than save our country.  Oh, sure, we have our families, we have our jobs, we have our business.  But you know what?  There seems to be an enemy of our family, our jobs, our schools, our business, our healthcare, our country.  So you know what?  We're going to put everything else on hold and we're going to do some old‑fashioned ass‑kicking come November.  So bring it on, progressives.  Bring it on!  Because you've just woken a sleeping giant. And while all of your buddies, all of your army is standing in line going, "I'd like more, please, please help me out, please, I'd like more, I don't have enough, I can't do it on our own," oh, we can.  We can do it as individuals, we can do it as a group.  We believe in the power of the individual.  We believe in the power of entrepreneurial spirit.  We believe in the power of our own mind!  We believe we can kick your ass down the street!  You need somebody else.  We don't.  Your bucket's about to have a hole in it and you ain't gonna buy no beer.  'Cause we ain't gonna pay for it very, very soon.


 

Avenatti arrested: The lawyer now needs a lawyer

At this point, I think there are about - oh - four thousand potential Democrats that may try and run for president in 2020. But we can probably take one off the list. "The creepy porn lawyer", also known by some as Michael Avenatti, was arrested yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles. And the reason why he was arrested kind of makes you think there's some kind of invisible force out there that's making sure either irony or maybe even karma is receiving it's daily offering. Michael Avenatti was just arrested for… Domestic Violence.

The alleged victim filed the complaint on Wednesday, but the incidents began on Tuesday. The woman involved is said to have bruising and swelling on her face and was kicked out of Avenatti's Los Angeles area apartment. Avenatti could be heard screaming, "This is BS, this is effing BS! She hit me first!"

Yeah, I don't think the whole "she hit me first" line is going to be a good strategy to use in court. He might want to revise that… I'm just saying.

You know, I wonder if the media - specifically CNN and MSNBC - are going to be doing any mea culpa's over the next 12 to 24 hours? They basically became Avenatti's PR wing over the past 8 months. From March to May, the two networks had Avenatti on the air over 100 times. He gave 147 interviews on both cable and network TV. MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell actually said quote, "Michael Avenatti is becoming my co-host. I've got to say."

And this was actually before he dragged Julie Swetnick into the limelight to attack Kavanaugh. You know I wonder, will this teach networks like CNN and MSNBC to maybe take a step back on over hyping and exposing every crazy, and even salacious, person or claim that comes out simply because it may be anti-Trump or GOP? Could this be a learning moment? Yeah… probably not, but one can dream.

And speaking of Kavanaugh, I've got to read this twitter exchange between one user and Avenatti on October 5th that said:

Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed, and it's Michael Avenatti's fault. Seriously.

And then Avenatti replied:

You are right. I should have turned my back on my client. Told her to "shut up" and stay quiet because people like you apparently believe assault victims are to blame. This line of thinking is disgusting and offensive to all survivors.

Well that was then and this is today. Here is Avenatti's statement last night.


Michael Avenatti: 'I Have Never Struck A Woman' | NBC News youtu.be

Umm, in the court of Avenatti, #metoo and public opinion now a days - by the standard that he helped create - is this statement not "disgusting and offensive to all survivors" as he tweeted back in October? Is he not immediately guilty as accused? I wonder if all the men and women screaming at Kavanaugh and GOP Senators in elevators can now see the pandora's box that they wanted opened.

The answer is no… he's NOT guilty as accused. Avenatti is innocent of this crime… UNTIL he's found guilty. We have to presume he's innocent until all evidence comes out proving he's not. That's how this works. Let's lead by example and do something radical here… let's actually wait for all the information and evidence to come out before we convict someone of a crime.

And that right there is the real irony here. Avenatti will get the due process that he deserves, but I doubt neither he - nor anyone screaming for Kavanaugh's head - will realize what happened.

It's been a busy week for former First Ladies, and for current First Lady Melania Trump. It has also been busy for one woman who, twenty-odd years ago, while working at the White House for then-President at the age of 21, shot to fame in the most embarrassing way possible.

Monica Lewinsky has released "The Clinton Affair," a docuseries that premieres this weekend on A&E;, a six-part series examining those cringe-inducing days and months surrounding her affair with Bill Clinton.

In an article for Vanity Fair early this year, she wrote:

Some closest to me asked why would I want to revisit the most painful and traumatic parts of my life — again. Publicly. On-camera. With no control of how it would be used. A bit of a head-scratcher, as my brother is fond of saying. Do I wish I could erase my years in D.C. from memory, 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' style? Well, is the sky blue? But I can't. And in order to move forward in the life I have, I must take risks — both professional and emotional…. An important part of moving forward is excavating, often painfully, what has gone before. When politicians are asked uncomfortable questions, they often duck and dodge by saying, 'That's old news. It's from the past.' Yes. That's exactly where we need to start to heal — with the past. But it's not easy.

She added:

Filming the documentary forced me to acknowledge to myself past behavior that I still regret and feel ashamed of," she explained. "There were many, many moments when I questioned not just the decision to participate, but my sanity itself. Despite all the ways I tried to protect my mental health, it was still challenging. During one therapy session, I told my therapist I was feeling especially depressed. She suggested that sometimes what we experience as depression is actually grief… Yes, it was grief. The process of this docuseries led me to new rooms of shame that I still needed to explore.

Meanwhile, Bill Clinton—a man who has been accused of all sorts of terrible things, a close friend of Harvey Weinstein—recently admitted that he didn't feel the need to apologize to Lewinsky. Lewinsky disagrees.

I'm less disappointed by him, and more disappointed for him. He would be a better man for it… and we, in turn, a better society.

The #MeToo movement has been a wrecking ball to so many men, yet Bill Clinton, perhaps the most prolific of them all, has escaped unscathed.

One man undoes shocking climate change study because... math

Pierre Leverrier/Unsplash

The left cries "science" about anything they want to consider a settled matter. Those who disagree with the left's climate change narrative question this "science." So, the climate change crowd are branded hysterical tree-huggers, and the anti-climate change crowd are naïve hicks.

The truth about climate change, like the truth when it comes to many issues, probably falls somewhere between the two extremes. But when it comes to climate change, it's hard to have a conversation about the "science" when the scientists running the show are already convinced they're absolutely correct and they have the unquestioning major media to back them up.

Just two weeks ago, a study published in the scientific journal Nature claimed that the oceans are warming much faster than anyone previously thought. Cue the panic and blame the President! It was a high-profile story splashed across major media outlets who were eager to promote more science that confirms one of the left's fundamental doctrines.

The study claimed ocean temperatures have risen around 60% higher than the estimate by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. But Nicholas Lewis, a British mathematician and climate-change critic quickly found a "major problem" with the study's conclusion.

Then yesterday, the two scientists who wrote the study admitted Lewis is right about the mistakes they made in their calculations. Now they say oceans aren't actually warming as fast as they reported. Climate scientist Ralph Keeling, who co-authored the report, says they miscalculated their margin of error – which is 10 to 70% – much larger than they originally thought.

Now they say oceans aren't actually warming as fast as they reported.

A 10 to 70 percent margin of error? I thought this climate change science was absolute. Imagine if your job had a margin of error that generous.

Keeling said:

Our error margins are too big now to really weigh in on the precise amount of warming that's going on in the ocean. We really muffed the error margins.

The whole incident is being laughed off as a minor error. But if it wasn't for some British dude poring over this research in his basement and willing to cry foul, this latest climate change "science" would continue to be broadcast as absolute truth. Just like it always is.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, from California, is doing everything she can to make sure she is re-elected in January to her spot as House Speaker.

Reasons Nancy Pelosi could give: Because she led the Democratic caucus for 16 years, and under her the House shifted hands. In fact, she was House Speaker for four years under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

RELATED: Sorry Nancy Pelosi, Apple's record-shattering buyback program is proof positive tax breaks work

Reason she actually gave: Because she's a woman.

During an interview on CBS Sunday, Pelosi said:

You cannot have the four leaders of Congress [and] the president of the United States, these five people, and not have the voice of women. Especially since women were the majority of the voters, the workers in campaigns, and now part of this glorious victory.

The pink wave, they're calling it. A rise in women politicians, supposedly in reaction to Donald Trump.

Here's the general argument, as described by Politico:

Push her out, and men may take over the party at a time when more than 100 women are heading to Capitol Hill and after female voters have been thoroughly alienated by President Donald Trump. Embrace her, and she'll prioritize legislation empowering women on issues ranging from equal pay to anti-harassment legislation.

Of course, she has a reason to use identity politics instead of merit: There's a concerted effort to have her un-seated.

At least nine representatives have come out and said that Pelosi will be out.

At least nine representatives have come out and said that Pelosi will be out. Filemon Vela said:

I am 100% confident we can forge new leadership.

Led by, Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), these are the representatives who have openly called for Pelosi's outing: Reps. Bill Foster (D-IL), Seth Moulton (DMA), Kathleen Rice (D-NY), Tim Ryan (D-OH), Kurt Schrader (D-OR), Conor Lamb (D-PA), and Filemon Vela (D-TX). Campaign staff for incoming Reps. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) and Jason Crow (D-CO) have said they won't vote for Pelosi.

If they have a single ounce of dignity left, they won't, at least not just because she is a woman.
