Rough rally for Obama

Security Shock: Book Thrown at Obama After Philly Speech Nearly Hits His Head + Million Dollar Streaker

PAT: Also, the President of the United States was speaking over the weekend and, as always, taking full responsibility for what is going on in his country on his watch.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: The hole we're climbing out is so deep, the Republicans messed up so bad, left such a big mess.

STU: Big mess, mmm hmmm.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That there's still millions of Americans without work.

STU: Oh, oh.

PAT: Okay. So there you go. That's the buck stops right here well, not here but with the last guy, okay?

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: Not specifically here. You would think wouldn't you think he would be embarrassed at this point, to still, at almost two years later, be blaming everything on the Republicans, be blaming everything on Bush. The Democrats have had the majority in congress since 2006. How did the Republicans leave you with a hole so deep? It's been Democrat control for four years now.

STU: But only four years, Pat.

PAT: But only four years, right.

STU: What we need is approximately four decades of Democratic control.

PAT: And then it will be perfect or

STU: If we could just get that, if we could just get super majorities for 40, 50, 60 you know what, why here's a better, safer solution: Why do we need a Republican Party these days? If we just had the one party

PAT: Thank you.

STU: it would make everything so much easier. You wouldn't have to worry about all these votes and elections and all that other stuff. Make it you know, streamline the process a little bit and everything would get done.

PAT: There you go. There you go. Why don't we just you know what? If we just outlawed the Republican Party and conservative thought and just take it off the radio and off of television, then we wouldn't have to worry about any of this stuff. Everyone would be employed, Stu, everyone. Everyone would have food and shelter and plenty. And you know what? I mean, we would have bubbling spring waters filled with cash and flowing with diamonds. It would be a fantastic world, if only we could eliminate the Republicans and the conservatives.

STU: I mean, I'm not speaking out of turn here when I say I believe that the seas would stop rising.

PAT: Of course. I think it was at this moment, wasn't it?

STU: Mmm hmmm. At this moment the seas will stop rising, pollution in other countries will start to wither away, we will have basically a you know, we're going to put science back in her rightful seat. All the promises that we were

PAT: Everything would be fulfilled.

STU: Everything would be fulfilled.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Which is that one little strange.

PAT: Yes.

STU: No more R's after people's names.

PAT: It's truly amazing. And I think wasn't it at that speech where somebody threw the book at him?

STU: I think it was.

PAT: Somebody literally flung a book at the President of the United States. What a stupid, what a stupid I don't care who you are, I don't care what you believe, I don't care what your background. What a dumb thing. You're lucky you weren't shot dead.

STU: Yeah. And you know what? If you were shot dead, I would not be on the radio today defending you.

PAT: Wouldn't shed a tear for you.

STU: Wouldn't shed a tear.

PAT: Sheer stupidly, unless you were mentally ill. And maybe you have to be in order to throw something at the President of the United States.

STU: Right.

PAT: You'd have to just physically be insane.

STU: I would say, though, the Secret Service are not going to be able to react in realtime to know the mental status of anyone throwing things at the President.

PAT: That's the unfortunate thing. They don't give you a test and then shoot you.

STU: No. And this is one of those things that you'd have everyone out there saying, I can't believe they would go and be all so forceful. This is the "don't tase me, bro" thing times ten.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: I would think the second someone throws something at my President, I'm tasing him at the very least. And I would have backed anyone who tased the guy. You don't I don't care how much I disagree with this President on policies, and I do almost every single one individually.

PAT: Yeah, virtually.

STU: Do not stir with that stuff.

PAT: The only thing I agree with him on, the only thing I agree with him on is that there should be an NCAA football playoff. That is the only place where Barack Obama's ideology and mine converge.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: That's it.

STU: I don't think that the government should be imposing a BCS playoff system.

PAT: No, but I'm almost willing to consider it at this point. Since they can't do it on their own, you know what, it's one of those things where, okay, you're right, they're too stupid, just make them do it. Just make them do it.

STU: Right. This is like the Cass Sunstein/Homer Simpson America.

PAT: Yes, yes. You nudge?

STU: If they're so dumb, if they can't figure out.

PAT: If they're so stupid. If the NCAA are such Homer Simpsons, they can't figure this out on their own, push them. Just get it done. Just get it done.

STU: And if they won't do it, tax them at 100% of that I income.

PAT: Yes, I'm okay with that in this particular instance. "Well, what about the slippery slope, Pat?" I don't care. Push the NCAA down the slope, all the way to the bottom of the hill, okay?

STU: At least it's something worthwhile you were willing to break your principles over.

PAT: Well, it's NCAA football. I mean, it doesn't get any more important than that.

STU: It's tough to disagree with you on that one solid point there, Pat.

PAT: Yes, thank you. Thank you.

STU: But you know, I don't care how much even the BCS thing does not justify throwing things at the President of the United States.

PAT: No, it doesn't. No, it doesn't.

The big news item of the week is Trump's potential indictment from New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg. According to our recent poll, most of you think that Trump's potential indictment is NOT about holding Trump accountable for a crime—most of you think it's a weaponization of our judicial system against the Left's number one enemy.

On Wednesday's episode of Glenn TV, Glenn dove into the details behind Trump's potential indictment and suggested even more nefarious intentions behind the indictment—to distract from the House Oversight Committee's bombshell memorandum revealing Biden's illicit business dealings with China.

Last week, Glenn published his updated "Preparedness Quiz" to see how prepared his audience is for a big crisis—and the results are in! Thankfully, not very many of you are "Toast." In fact, most of you could survive a big disaster, and even some of you could survive a nuclear apocalypse—not very many could say that!

If you haven't taken the quiz already, you can take it HERE, and be sure to download Glenn's "Ultimate Preparedness Guide" filled with practical tips on how to keep you and your family safe for a future crisis.

1.7% of Glenn's audience is TOAST! Thankfully, that's very few of you. 

There is little chance you'd survive repairing your kitchen table, not to mention enduring a massive economic crisis or natural disaster. With no money, food, or supplies stocked up, you will have to rely on the altruism of your more-prepared friends and family. But then again, if you can't even navigate to their house without your phone, you may still be TOAST.

13.8% of Glenn's audience could survive a little disaster. 

Congrats on having some of your finances set aside for emergencies... and some useful tools and skills tucked away in case of an emergency. You could potentially endure a "little disaster" of financial hardship. However, if you want to survive a massive financial crisis or natural disaster, you're going to have to start stockpiling some more money and supplies.

68.9% of Glenn's audience could survive a big disaster. 

Congrats on being more prepared than most! You have some investment in precious metals, an emergency fund, some food and supplies stockpiled, and maybe an extra generator. Even though you may not be a "prepper," you have taken steps to prepare for hard times, which will protect you and your loved ones for weeks... even months—which is way better than nothing!

14.7% of Glenn's audience could survive a nuclear apocalypse. 

Congratulations on being one of the few people in this world who could actually survive a nuclear apocalypse! Seriously... there are very few of you. Your bunker is stocked with food, water, and supplies to last you MONTHS. Your silver, gold, and emergency fund will help you cruise in times of financial distress. You can secure more goods because you have learned a bunch of "barter" skills. Congrats on being able to keep yourself and your loved ones safe!

On Monday, Biden exercised his veto powers for the first time to strike down a bill that would ban states from taking ESG into consideration when investing state pension funds. In his veto message, Biden said:

Retirement plan fiduciaries should be able to consider any factor that maximizes financial returns for retirees across the country. That's not controversial — that's common sense.

At the risk of using the loaded word "gaslit," it continues to be the operative word in describing the policies coming out of the Biden White House. It is painfully obvious that ESG itself inhibits investors from "maximizing financial returns." That was never ESG's goal in the first place. Yet Biden said the opposite.

ESG aims to incentivize investors to make "socially conscious" (a.k.a woke) investments, even if they are at odds with the greatest return on investment. It has enabled state governments and investment firms to use their monopoly over the investment space to force companies to choose between adopting their woke ESG standards and losing critical investment. Isn't there a word for that? Extortion? Or modern-day politics?

ESG enables state governments to force companies to choose between adopting their woke ESG standards and losing critical investment.

That is the sole reason why Republicans brought the bill to his desk in the first place: As Glenn said, "ESG poses a clear and present danger to the American way of life, the soul of our nation and every sector of our economy. ESG was never about ROI. It was always about pushing a leftist agenda.

And Biden knows this.

Why would he want to give up something that enables his political party and corporate elites to control and manipulate the political affiliations of their people? Who would want to give up that power? Biden certainly doesn't.

And he didn't.

Instead, he boldly asserts the exact opposite: that ESG itself "maximizes financial returns," relying on the divided American people to debate the policy into oblivion, while he gets exactly what he wants: the retention of power over the American consumer. Dare I say again that "gaslit" is the operative word here?

If one thing is clear, it is that we cannot rely on the federal government to act in the best interests of the American people. However, in this critical moment, the state governments are stepping up to do what the federal government refuses to: protecting the rights of the American consumer.

In a joint resolution led by Florida Governor Ron Desantis, 19 states have pledged “to protect individuals from the ESG movement" at the state level. This is critical.

We cannot rely on the federal government to act in the best interests of the American people.

Florida leads Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming in signing the historic policy agreement among all 19 states, pledging to ban ESG practices within their jurisdictions.

The anti-ESG alliance calls ESG what it is:

A direct threat to the American economy, individual economic freedom, and our way of life, putting investment decisions in the hands of the woke mob to bypass the ballot box and inject political ideology into investment decisions, corporate governance, and the everyday economy.

This alliance takes aim at two specific practices used by left-leaning states to force companies to adopt ESG-approved practices.

First, the alliance promises to protect "taxpayers from ESG influences across state systems."

While other states are using YOUR taxpayer dollars to fund pro-ESG corporations, these states pledge to BAN this practice to ensure "that only financial factors are considered to maximize the return on investment."

The chief factor behind any investment should be determining whether that investment yields the maximum return on their investment. However, many states are using YOUR taxpayer-funded pension and retirement funds to invest in ESG-approved businesses. This not only forces businesses to consider adopting ESG standards in hopes of obtaining investment. Moreover, states are using YOUR taxpayer dollars to fund them! Would you want your government to invest your hard-earned money for partisan purposes?

The anti-ESG alliance is taking the politics out of investment and putting consumer power back in the hands of the American people. These state governments pledged to make investment decisions based solely on maximizing the return on investment, not in using your taxpayer dollars to fund their political agendas.

Second, the alliance promises to protect "citizens from ESG influences in the financial sector."

ESG standards force businesses to consider the political leanings of their customer base. For example, Discover announced they will begin tracking its customers' gun-related purchases. One of the leaders behind this push is Amalgamated Bank, which boasts on their website that their institution "supports sustainable organizations, progressive causes, and social justice." Amalgamated Bank CEO Priscilla Sims Brown said:

We all have to do our part to stop gun violence and it sometimes starts with illegal purchases of guns and ammunition The new code will allow us to fully comply with our duty to report suspicious activity and illegal gun sales to authorities without blocking or impeding legal gun sales.

This virtue signaling at the cost of your privacy is earning both Discover and Amalgamated ESG brownie points.

There are countless stories of Americans, like YOU, getting locked out of their bank accounts, dropped as clients, tracked and targeted, all because their personal political beliefs don't align with big corporations' ESG goals. Their individual privacy and dignity as a consumer aren't worth the risk of lowering the company's ESG score.

That's why the anti-ESG alliance is pledging to protect the residents in their states from this corrupt ESG exploitation. The alliance promised to ban "so-called social Credit Scores' in banking and lending practices aimed to prevent citizens from obtaining financial services like loans, lines of credit, and bank accounts."

They also promised to stop "financial institutions from discriminating against customers for their religious, political, or social beliefs, such as owning a firearm, securing the border, or increasing our energy independence."

In short, they have targeted the political extortion hidden behind the virtuous ESG veil to protect citizens from being discriminated against based on political affiliation.

It's time to step up.

Biden may have struck down the effort to restore the freedom of the American consumer at the federal level. However, these states are taking it upon themselves to do what they ought: to ban practices that threaten the freedoms and privacy of their citizens.

If your state did not joining the anti-ESG alliance, it's time to demand that they step up and do their job to protect you and the rest of your fellow citizens from corrupt ESG practices. As Glenn said, "The conservative movement is best when it moves in unison." We must act and unison and push our states to protect our economic freedom and our way of life.
