GLENN: I want to go with cut 376, please, CNBC reporter is concerned that the CNBC, these conspiracy freaks are concerned that the President is setting up his own legal system. Here it is.

VOICE: I guess the other point really becomes and, Rick, whoever wants to take this, did BP end up really doing the right thing here? They definitely got strong armed, it seems, into doing this. Did they make the right decision into cutting the dividend?

VOICE: In cutting the dividend or in joining up with that fund? In cutting the dividend, yeah, it's smart to save cash in the face of an unknown liability, but I'm very troubled by the fact that the President has, once again, created his own sense of a legal system. He fired the CEO of General Motors, he circumvented the rights of bond holders in the GM situation, and now he's confiscated $20 billion from a company wait a minute to set up, quote, a financial and legal framework that already exists. It's not his job to create laws. It's his job to enforce laws.

PAT: Hum.

GLENN: Huh. Let me go to let me go to cut 303, also, MSNBC.

VOICE: When does the President become a dictator on this? When does the President start really calling the shots and saying, This is the number, this is what you're going to pay, we're not going to let you off the hook?

GLENN: Okay. So, we have on CNBC we have somebody saying I'm very concerned he's setting up his own laws, he's setting up his own system. You have MSNBC saying, when is he going to just become a dictator? Then you have a senator asked on MSNBC, what gives them the authority to force BP to pay? Cut 389. Listen to what she had to say.

VOICE: He have a specific question for you on what legal basis can the government demand that BP set aside this money? What's the specific legal authority for this?

VOICE: Well, first of all, if we have to pass a statute to create that authority, we will, but I think the basic focus here is BP has said they're going to pay. So, let's start footing the bill.

GLENN: Hum. If we have to pass it after the President the President asked for it. If he wants more authority just to take money, we'll pass it. We'll give it.

PAT: And then grandfather that in.

GLENN: That's interesting.

PAT: Hum.



MSNBC's Schultz Asks When Obama Will 'Become a Dictator' on Gulf Cleanup

GLENN: Now, it is fascinating to me that the very people that have been ridiculing for me and you and everyone else in this country that has stood up and said, we are headed in the down the same roads that Europe headed down in the 1930's, they're the ones now calling for a dictatorship, they're the ones saying it's okay for a dictatorship.

We have some disturbing audio, cut 392. This one's coming from New Haven, Connecticut. This is a school that is well, they're having the kids chant. Listen to this.

VOICE: Anything, anything, anything, anything I want to be I want, doctor, lawyer, judge, journalist, writer, fire fighter, principal, President, President, President, anything, anything, I want to be. If my mind can conceive it and my heart can believe it, then I know, I know, I know, I can achieve it, because I am an Obama scholar, an Obama scholar and I will strive to be, out outstanding, brilliant, I will achieve, I'll be motivated, positive attitude, positive attitude, mountain, move out of my way.

GLENN: Fascinating to me.

PAT: It's reminiscent of what we heard, what was, a year, year and a half ago about the Obama militant kids who were chanting about Obama. Do you remember that?

VOICE: Alpha omega, alpha omega.

GLENN: It was almost like a little civilian Army happening here.

VOICE: President Obama, because of Obama I will strive to be the next doctor, because of Obama, I will strive to be the next lawyer. Because of Obama, I will strive to be the next auto technician. Because of Obama, I will strive to be the next architect.

GLENN: This is frightening.

VOICE: Because of Obama, I am striving to be the next engineer.

PAT: Then there were the young kids that got to go for the choir.



'Obama scholars' sing The One's praises

VOICE: We're going to spread happiness. We're going to spread freedom. Obama's going to change it. Obama's going to lead them. We're going to change it and rearrange it.

GLENN: It's frightening.

PAT: Creepy

VOICE: We're going to change the world.

GLENN: I don't think I need to hear any more. Go back to cut 303, please.

VOICE: When does the President become a dictator on this? When does the President start really calling the shots and saying, this is the number, this is what you're going to pay, we're not going to let you off the hook?

GLENN: Progressives will tell that you they don't want a dictatorship. They'll tell you that Fascism is crazy, they'll tell you that communism is crazy, but when it comes down to it, that's exactly what they want. If you can play the Bill Maher force them, tell them what to do, in the end progressives believe they are smarter than you. They believe that if they can talk down to you enough or Cass Sunstein can nudge you enough, but in the end, they if you can't get it done, when are you going to become a dictator? This is exactly, exactly what happened with FDR, but not nearly this quickly. And luckily, by the time his people said to him, you have got to take the reigns, you have to be a dictator, by the time they actually said those words to him, most of America was on to him. In 1939, 50 some percent was afraid and felt that the United States was turning into a dictatorship. That's when he was told, take the reigns. We still have so many people that don't even see this coming, that we have cheerleaders on the side, on the left, saying, Become a dictatorship.

It is not the President's job to create new laws. That's the job of the Congress. It is not the job of the President to dictate terms. Now, I read the other day, I was reading in the Bible. I was reading in a story from the Old Testament and it talked about the sins of the fathers coming back on the sons and I thought, since when? We don't pay for the sins of the father. My dad did something wrong, my dad pays for it. No, no. The sins of the father are about to come down on the sin for the son and I'll explain and a way out, next.

It's not just the Twitter mobs, the Leftist extremists and the flagrant fourth-wave feminists who want ICE abolished. As we've seen, there's a growing number of politicians who want to see it as well.

Cue Alejandro Alvarez, who in his 32 years has managed to cultivate his brand as a "serial immigration violator." Alejandro has been deported 11 times. Well, he's facing deportation once again, after allegedly "slashing his wife with a chainsaw." His wife is in recovery and is expected to survive.

Around 3:00 pm last Wednesday, police arrived at Alejandro's. When they arrived, they found Alvarez's wife suffering from "traumatic physical injuries, believed to have been inflicted by a chainsaw." The couple's three children were huddled in fear inside the home. Alejandro's wife was rushed to a nearby trauma center for an emergency surgery.

Alejandro fled the scene of the crime, but was eventually hauled in by police and booked under "suspicion of attempted murder, child endangerment, hit and run, and grand theft auto."

Sounds like the kind of guy who should be in our country illegally, right?

ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley noted that "Immigration officers have lodged a detainer against Alvarez, requesting that local authorities notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement before his release to allow them to take the man into custody."

This is the new reality.

This is the new reality. The immigration agency has to ask for permission, to file requests, to have illegal immigrants who are guilty of crimes dealt with. Luckily for Alejandro, Los Angeles is a sanctuary city, so maybe he'll get another pass and be back on the streets in no time.

The Purple Heart is reserved for those wounded or killed during battle. Awarded by the President, the medal has George Washington's image right there on the front of it. Make no mistake, it is reserved for heroes. True heroes. Men and women who've faced death and still persevered. Soldiers who fought in battle at the cost of their limbs, their lives, or their inner peace. John F. Kennedy earned a Purple Heart for his heroism as a gunboat pilot in 1944. John McCain received one for, well, we all know his horrific story. Colin Powell. Roughly one million Purple Heart medals have been awarded to veterans, all of whom were determined to have fought valiantly, with courage and heart.

So it was a bit of a head-scratcher to hear comments from Democratic Representative Steve Cohen from Tennessee and self-appointed "Leader in Effort to #ImpeachTrump." During a House Oversight Committee hearing questioning Peter Strzok, Cohen said, perplexingly, that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart. You know, because he's injured by all those mean text messages that HE sent?

As we've seen, other than Cohen's fanboy praise, Strzok hasn't gotten off easy. Thankfully. The Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General wrote: "We did not have confidence that Strzok's decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the [Anthony] Weiner laptop was free from bias."

Lack of confidence. I believe that's one of the criteria for a different medal. Not a Purple Heart, though. Sorry, Strzok, you'll have to get your trophy elsewhere.

Time mgazine is back at it again, reporting the real news, doing the proper journalism. One of their latest articles is sure to earn them a Pulitzer. Surely. The article is titled, "Women Are Buying Up Plan B Because They're Terrified of the Future Supreme Court."

Here's how the article opens:

Within hours of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement announcement last month, Emily Hauser was standing at a drugstore counter asking a pharmacist for two packages of Plan B. At age 53, she didn't need the emergency contraception pills — in fact, she wasn't sure who would, or when. But Hauser bought them anyway.

I like that the article sets up Kennedy's retirement as an apocalyptic event. A recurring theme in the mainstream media, now that I think of it, especially lately. Here's the gist of it:

Across the country, Americans are stockpiling emergency contraception in light of Justice Kennedy's retirement and President Donald Trump's Monday nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The nation's highest court is on its way to having a conservative majority, making threats against Roe v. Wade seem more dire than ever.

A good article includes backstory. History. The context. Here's what Time had to say about the sudden influx—some would say panic—in birth control:

To understand the interest in buying up Plan B, you need to brush up on Roe v. Wade. Some background: The court handed down the 7-2 decision in 1973, confirming that a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy is covered by the Fourteenth Amendment. Progress has been rocky since then.

Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies.

Ah, yes. Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies. At this point, it's impossible for those inflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and now Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome, to have a civil conversation. They certainly aren't going to budge in their opinion. Our main goal, obviously, is to connect to them as fellow human beings, living in the same chaotic world, and, hey, maybe along the way they'll admit that, maybe, they're a little more biased and deranged than they previously realized.

If all you knew about American politics came from The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, or MSNBC, you'd think that a "Blue wave" is about to swamp the country, with hip, millennial geniuses like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez surfing the crest of the wave. In fact, you would already think Ocasio-Cortez is the greatest hope for America since Barack Obama.

America is a very large country, and reality is usually more complex than the media lets on. But, since the media already has their narrative and superstar Ocasio-Cortez set for this November, there's no room for another young, minority, female, child of immigrants, political outsider, from the ultimate blue-wave state of California, named Elizabeth Heng. Well, there probably would be room for a story like that, except that she's a conservative.

Thirty-two-year-old Elizabeth Heng is running for Congress against Democrat Jim Costa, in California's 16th district. It's been 40 years since a Republican won in that district.

In the early 1980s, Heng's parents fled the violence in Cambodia and immigrated to the U.S. In 2008, after graduating from Stanford where she was student-body president, Heng opened several cell-phone stores with her brothers in the central San Joaquin Valley. Running her own business and managing 75 employees opened her eyes to a not-so-dirty secret about capitalism trying to survive the virus of progressivism. She says, "I saw firsthand how government regulations impacted businesses negatively. I constantly felt that from Washington, D.C., and Sacramento, they were saying that I was everything wrong with our country, when all I was doing was creating jobs."

That's when she decided to venture to Washington, D.C., where she worked for six years learning the ins and outs of legislation and campaigning. She ended up working as a director for President Trump's inauguration ceremony, a job she managed while also finishing her MBA at Yale.

Fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone.

One of the biggest lessons she learned working in Washington became the platform she is now running for office on: fiscal responsibility. She says, "In a family or a business, we don't suddenly act surprised when a budget comes up for the year. We get it done."

What a concept.

Still, fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone. So, don't expect Elizabeth Heng to replace Ocasio-Cortez as the media darling anytime soon.
