Stu and Pat: The majority of Birthers are...

PAT: That's right. And Chris Matthews explained that I think night before last. He came out with this new poll and he showed how stupid people really are.

MATTHEWS: We finished tonight with a stunning new poll that shows only a minority of Americans, 42% believe the president of the United States was born in this country and therefore eligible for the office. The new CNN survey released today found that just 23% of Republicans believe Obama is a native born American.

PAT: Wow.

MATTHEWS: This means that most Americans and three quarters of Republicans harbor either the belief or suspicion that the president is an illegal alien, that he was not born here, never went through a naturalization process and therefore is a potential subject for deportation. Well, this will strike many listening to me now as crazy. Do people really mean it when they tell pollsters that they do not believe President Obama was definitely born in the U.S.? Do people really believe he was born in Kenya and if so, to a Kenyan mother or in Indonesia? Do they really believe that the announcement of his birth in the Honolulu newspapers in August of 1961 was part of some long term, well executed conspiracy to create the appearance of Barack Obama's birth on that day which is what it says in this standard certificate you are looking at you are looking at released by the State of Hawaii you see now.

PAT: What we brought up yesterday on the Fourth Hour when we talked about this and by the way, you can listen to the Fourth Hour immediately following the show every day on the Internet Extreme.

STU: Insider Extreme, yes.

PAT: Insider Extreme. I did the same thing Glenn does, didn't I?

STU: Yes, it is on the Internet which is where you might have got that thought but, yes, it is Insider Extreme.

PAT: But the point is he I forgot the point. What was the point?

STU: Was the point potentially is that Chris Matthews speaks as if he has a train to catch in three minutes?

PAT: At one point, yeah.

STU: Why what is wrong with him?

PAT: I know.

STU: Why he's breathless throughout this entire commentary. The word "President" has more than two presidents. Not precedent. It's President Obama has a lot

PAT: That's a bunch.

STU: President Obama, where we're up to like six syllables, he does it in two.

PAT: He's got a lot to say. He has to get it in, you know.

STU: And he's so breathlessly attacking evil tea party members that he can't even stop to speak correctly which I guess is understandable. And that's the least of his offenses there. I mean, it's the typical response. They run these polls and they try to build them up to prove that the typical Republican or the person on the right is just this racist hate monger who doesn't have any actual policy concerns with this president. He is somebody who just can't take the fact that we have a black president.

PAT: Yes.

STU: And he looks different than you, and I can't take it; I don't think he was born here.

PAT: And the only people talking about this Birther nonsense are Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Alex Jones. I mean, they are playing right into Alex Jones, the father of all conspiracy theories, right into his hands.

STU: Right.

PAT: They are the ones who are keeping this going, they and the administration because it helps the administration.

STU: Right.

PAT: To paint people as crazy. And look, if you are a Birther, leave it alone! Please.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: You don't need it.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: There's so much real stuff here to get our teeth into. You don't need to worry about this Birther nonsense.

STU: Right. The vast majority of people haven't thought about whether President Obama was born here or not because it's not an issue.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: The guy was born in Hawaii. You've got to get over that. And MSNBC just keeps bringing it up constantly because it's the only issue Obama wins on right now.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: It's the only thing he could he has to convince everyone that the people opposing him, the 65% of people who want to repeal his stupid healthcare plan must all be racist Birthers. That's all he has.

PAT: It's ridiculous.

STU: And that's why they bring it up constantly. And they do it with these polls which are completely ridiculous. The bottom line is most people haven't thought of these issues. So when you get this happens in polling all the time. When you get an issue that's unfamiliar to you, people answering a poll will essentially look at the context of the question and guess at it. Many times it's because they either like the guy mentioned or don't like him. For example, 10% about 10% of people think Barack Obama is the Antichrist.

PAT: 10%?

STU: 10%. About 10% of people think George W. Bush is the Antichrist. It's the same people. If you really hate Barack Obama and someone's asked you a question about Barack Obama and when you're asked a question by a pollster, you internalize the fact that it must be an actual debate. So there's a certain amount of people who go, yeah, I hate Obama, yeah, him, he's the Antichrist. It's why 35% of Democrats thought George W. Bush was involved in the 9/11 attacks. It's because they didn't like George W. Bush. So they will say anything that will hurt the guy. That is what happens. There's a certain segment of our population that goes down that road every single time. But when you actually look at the poll and break it down, it tells a completely different story. The only headline you are getting from this poll is that 41% of Republicans are Birthers. That is what is repeated constantly by, you know, everybody on the left right now. But what it really says, if you really look at the numbers, is if you were to talk to a random person in America, if you were to walk up to any random person in America, you would have about an 11% chance that they think Obama was born outside of the U.S. About 11% of people think he's definitely born in the U.S., he's not a U.S. citizen, but 11% is a great estimate of any wacky question that you ask a poll. As I said, 10% think George W. Bush was the Antichrist. About 10, 11% will say anything to any poll. So it's really not significant. But so if you go, random person on the street, 11% chance that they believe he was born outside the United States. But if you were to gather all the Birthers, all the people in the world, that are in America who think that he was born outside the United States and you gathered them all in a room and you went up to one random one and you asked them, hey, what party are you in, 35% would say that they are Republicans. 35% of Birthers are Republicans. 42% of them are independents.

PAT: Wow.

STU: 23% are Democrats. So if you walk up to summarize that in case you missed it, 65% of Birthers are not Republicans.

PAT: Jeez.

STU: 65% are not Republicans. I mean, and they try to, like you know, they fool with these numbers, they try to add leaners to it and everything else. But even when you add leaners, you can add all the leaners you want and you still get to the point that 59% of Birthers are not Republicans. So this is not I mean, Birtherism is bipartisan. I mean, more accurately, opposition to Birtherism is bipartisan. There's not a lot of people who believe it, and as they believe it, it's just a random grouping of people with a slight edge to the right just because they don't like Obama, but this is not something that you could come out and prove anything on. It's a really vague question that does not it does not illustrate anything other than people don't know how to read polls in the media.

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 ...

Here are 5 RIDICULOUS moments from the Davos summit

Glenn has been warning about the dangers of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, which is the WEF's goal to utilize the crises like the COVID pandemic to create a leftist Utopia. Now, these goals continue to take shape at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos. Here are five ridiculous moments from this year's summit that shed light on their ultimate vision Glenn has been warning about.

1. Ex-CNN host Brian Stelter hosts the WEF panel on "disinformation," calling for the criminalization of "hate speech" in the U.S.

The former host of Reliable Sources was fired from CNN in 2022 for raking in the network's worst ratings since 2019. CNN's CEO at the time, Chris Licht, accused Stelter of "drawing ire from conservatives" for misrepresenting the facts and propagating false narratives to demonize conservatives. Licht fired Stelter because he was a liability to CNN's attempt to "re-brand" itself as a "reliable" news source.

You would think the World Economic Forum could have found a more credible host for its "disinformation," than Brian Stelter, and it comes with little surprise Stelter's panel called for the continued censorship of conservatives.

Stelter asked his panel, "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening today in Davos?"

Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourová answered "illegal hate speech" from right-wing extremists, and then called for the criminalization of hate speech in the U.S., asserting, "I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law" within the EU.

As former Trump advisor Stephen Miller pointed out, Stelter's refusal to further challenge Jourová's call for censorship is indicative of his failed career as a journalist.

2. Al Gore warns of "rain bombs," "boiling oceans," and "xenophobia" as a result of climate change.

Gore's speech "speaks" for itself...

After asserting that we're creating an "open sewer" in the troposphere, Gore exclaimed:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!

Speaking of refugees, Gore blamed the mass migrations of people on... you guessed it... climate change! Of course this leads to "xenophobia" and "fascism," so if we hate "xenophobia" and "fascism," we need to stop climate change IMMEDIATELY. Plus the rain bombs...

Does this sound reminiscent of the "Man-Bear-Pig?"

3. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann urges for 1 million people to NOT eat meat—predicting a "meatless future."

It wouldn't be a World Economic Forum summit if bugs didn't take center stage. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann said he was inspired by his 24-year-old daughter to stop eating meat to fight climate change and urged one million people to stop eating meat to balance out jet emissions—like the jets his fellow attendees used to travel to the conference?

Here's what he said:

If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems."

Of course, finding "alternative sources of protein" means... you guessed it... BUGS. The EU is already cutting down on cattle farms and promoting the building of insect farms to initiate this "protein transition."

4. John Kerry calls Davos attendees a "select group" with an "almost extraterrestrial" plan to save the planet.

Kerry's opening speech at Davos shows the type of elitism the attendees believe about themselves. They are the "special ones" who can gather at a Swiss resort town to discuss how to "save the planet" and the "little people" who are too ignorant to have a say in the matter. His words speak for themselves:

When you start to think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we — select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives — are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet [...] I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet [...] f you say that to most people, most people think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, or whatever, and there's no relationship. But really, that's where we are.

Well, not everyone was amused...

Businessman and conservative Tim Acheson called Kerry’s words, "Liberal delusions of grandeur." Jordan Peterson also tweeted, "Who are you going to sacrifice to save the planet, @JohnKerry -- and do you think and how will you ensure that they have any say in the matter?"

5. Davos attendees traveled on more than 1,000 private jets to the conference.

Greenspace, an environmentalist research group, estimates the total emissions used by Davos attendees on their private jets while traveling to the conference is equivalent to "about 350,000 average cars."

Greenspace also found that 53 percent of all private jet trips were short-haul flights of less than 470 nautical miles that "could have easily been train trips." This comes amid the EU's push to ban short-distance flights and opt for train travel instead, which many continue to point out.

Closing thoughts

What once sounded like conspiracy theories are now taking shape amongst the global elites at Davos. As Glenn continues to shed light on the dangers of the World Economic Forum, here's how YOU can fight back against their goals that threaten our freedoms and democracy.

In honor of the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, we would like to resurrect this gem from Glenn's Instagram archive. If "the Great Reset" doesn't work out, Schwab should consider reaching out to the Bond franchise for a Plan-B career.

PROOF the World Economic Forum wants you eating... BUGS!

As the World Economic Forum continues to meet in Davos about building a more "sustainable" future, Glenn's warning on a seemingly outlandish sustainability goal is becoming reality: eating bugs!

In its 2023 Global Risks Report, the World Economic Forum called for the "transition to net-zero, nature-positive food" to fight "food insecurity." In other words, the WEF imagines a future with minimal meat and maximum "zero-emissions food"—like bugs—as consumers' main source of protein. This is a part of "the Great Reset," the agenda proposed by the World Economic Forum in 2020, urging leaders to take advantage of the COVID-19 crisis to restructure the "world order" to bring about a leftist Utopia.

Major news outlets like the BBC have promoted insect farms as a sustainable food source to "reduce the reliance on everyday meat eating."

So what's the big concern about eating bugs? As the video points out, many cultures throughout the world have been eating insects for centuries—many consider them a delicacy! The issue with the WEF's push for insects isn't merely the option to eat bugs. If someone wants to munch on some grasshoppers, nothing is stopping them! The major concern is the way in which the WEF wants to mandate insect consumption, and, consequentially, destroy the beef industry.

According to the same 2023 Risk Report, the WEF calls for "radical policy measures" to bring about the food transition to zero-net-emissions food, like insects. This means imposing such a burden on the dairy and cattle industries that it renders them impossible to function, paving the way for a new insect industry.

In the Netherlands, the EU's largest food exporter, the government is forcing the farmers to sell their land to the state unless they reduce the amount of nitrogen fertilizer used. However, without nitrogen fertilizer, it is nearly impossible for the farmers to produce enough food to feed the nation, not to mention turn a profit. Moreover, without nitrogen fertilizer, it will be impossible for cattle farmers to produce enough food to feed their cows. This is an impossible burden for farmers to bear, and they often capitulate and sell their land to the government, paving the way for a burgeoning insect industry. Is it any coincidence the EU is pushing for insects as a means of "food sufficiency" and combatting climate change?

If you think eating insects is a novel issue from across the pond, think again. There is a growing push for a "beef tax" in the U.S. to disincentivize beef consumption and incentivize alternative "sustainable" protein sources...like bugs. According to 2021, data, U.S. beef is a 79-billion-dollar-per-year industry, employing million across the U.S.'s 700,000 cattle farms. These stats don't even include the U.S.'s dairy industry. If the global environmentalists have their way, this major U.S. industry will be wiped out, wreaking havoc on our economy. Yet this government control over the "everyday person's" consumption is all too tantalizing.

As the World Economic Forum convenes in Davos to discuss how to achieve their "sustainable utopia," Glenn continues to advocate for the free market and the ability to choose our own consumer goods, rather than giving global elites the power to consolidate and mandate their "approved goods" for widespread consumption. Though consuming insects may seem like an outlandish idea that has no impact on our daily lives, it is a part of a larger movement to control our way of life to achieve a more sustainable future, threatening both our economy and our basic freedoms.
