Good gosh, Gloria




Steinem Mocks POW McCain

GLENN: It is Monday and I have to tell you I'm about to lose my frickin' mind here with some of the news that's going on from Obama coming out and, "I'm a Christian, I pray to Jesus, I pray to Jesus, I pray to Jesus, look at me, praying to Jesus." Why is this even an issue? And why is it that Barack Obama can say on one night during a -- during the last debate that he believes Senator Clinton and a couple of days later they blame the Clintons for releasing the pictures. And yet nobody pays attention to it. Why is it that Barack Obama's wife can come out and say leave corporate America? In some of the most hypocritical statements I think I've ever read and yet the press gives her a pass. Why is it that Gloria Steinem is not leading the news today? She's leading it here. Gloria Steinem, in a speech for Hillary Clinton, "Women for Hillary." How about people for Hillary! How about Americans for Hillary! Can we stop dividing ourselves? She belittled John McCain. Let me make this clear. I'm not a John McCain supporter but I tell you I'm coming this close to defending the guy I am clearly going to defend him on this one but I mean, as a candidate I can't take it anymore. This is so unbelievably out of bounds. She talked about John McCain, how he had been put in a bamboo cage for five and a half years. The man can't even comb his hair. His arms were ripped out of the sockets so many times, he can't lift his arms up past his shoulders and she belittles it. "This is supposed to be a qualification for President of the United States? I don't think so." Really? You don't think so? That doesn't tell you anything about a man's character at all. Will you put your life at stake for your country? Will you crack under pressure? Are you a man of courage? Yeah, I think having my arms pulled out of the sockets over and over and over again while I live in a bamboo cage for five and a half years, I think that says a lot about somebody. Now, what you do with the rest of your life, I've told you, if I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times I don't care what happened during the Vietnam War. It's over. It's ancient history. But a guy who's been kept in a bamboo cage, you're going to take that on and you're going to belittle that and you're going to say it makes no difference in forming a man's character? I got news for ya. It forms a man's character. It changes a man's life. Quite honestly, I mean, I've mentioned this before. I'm concerned about John McCain's temper. Well, where do you think his temper came from? Oh, I don't know. Probably from having his arms ripped out from his sockets while living in a bamboo cage for five and a half years! Then she goes off on this antimilitary rant. I can't take these people anymore. She actually starts in: First of all, suppose that John McCain would have been Joan McCain and Joan McCain had been captured, shot down and was a P.O.W. for eight years living in a bamboo cage. Reporters would ask, what did you do wrong? What terrible things did you do while you were captive for eight years?

Are you kidding me? If they would have shot down a female prisoner, do I need to remind you about the girl from West Virginia that the whole country stopped so we could go and save? Do you think it would be less? Do you think we would actually be sitting here? You pinhead. Do you think we would actually be sitting here going, "Well, look at the way she was dressed." If she were Joan McCain... stop it. You self-centered, self-righteous socialist, out-of-control, dangerous, man-hating bitch. Shut your mouth. We might have bought into this crap in the 1960s because too many people were doing LSD. We're not on LSD anymore. You need to start making sense.

Then she goes on to say, "I'm just glad that Hillary Clinton wasn't trained to kill people." Really? You're glad? Yeah, yeah. "Well, I don't need the President of the United States to be a killer, as you would call them. I would call them a member of our military." You're glad that Hillary Clinton wasn't trained to kill people. "I'm just glad John McCain was trained to kill people." Really? So you hate the military that much? I'm really glad we have people who are trained to kill people and also have enough restraint to kill the right people and not just people who piss them off.

I have profound respect for the military. I for one, Gloria Steinem, am glad we have people who are trained to kill people because to quote, probably a very good friend of yours, Jack Nicholson, "We need people on that wall." And I'd like people on that wall who are trained to kill people because I've got news for you. There were people outside in the world and in here in the country that are trying to kill us. I'd like to have a gun or two. I'd like to make sure we have a military. What do you say? You know what, here's an idea. Let's put people without training, without training at all to kill people. Let's put them up on the wall to guard us, to keep us safe. Let's put them up there. You know what? Let's put you on the wall, Gloria Steinem? We'll put you on the wall because you are such an out-of-control, crazy bitch that you'll scary everybody away! We won't need any guns! We'll just put you in... "I ain't going near Gloria Steinem; she's crazy." Maybe that would solve the problem, Gloria, but thanks for stopping by. I miss the Sixties. I really do. Let's smoke a pound of dope sometime, shall we? Jeez.

Stu, I think today's going to be a day I'm going to pop a blood vessel.

The great beyond. What does it hide from us? Do unknown lifeforms linger in the dark? In other words, was David Bowie right? Is there life on Mars? The head of Harvard University's Astronomy Department contends that, yes, there is. Well, not that there's life on Mars. I'll explain in just a minute.

In an academic article for the Astrophysical Journal Letters, Dr. Avi Loeb, the head of Harvard University's Astronomy Department, claimed that an alien probe entered our solar system. He claimed that it is masked as the space rock Oumuamua (Ow-moo-ah-moo-ah), "the first interstellar object to enter our solar system." It turns out that "space rock" is way more than a musical genre.

In his own words:

Considering an artificial origin, one possibility is that 'Oumuamua is a lightsail, floating in interstellar space as a debris from an advanced technological equipment.

His evidence? pointed to the space rock's abnormal acceleration, activity which he gathered via the Hubble Space Telescope.

He added that "the lightsail technology might be abundantly used for transportation of cargo between planets."

Sounds a bit like Star Wars, no? Or are you more of a Star Trek fan? Either way, it's an odd thing to hear from the head of Harvard University's Astronomy Department. Typically, we hear these sorts of things from the darker corners of the History Channel.

Well, I'll say that, at this point, I'm not really surprised. It's 2019. I'm not surprised by anything anymore.

"I don't care what people say," Loeb said. "It doesn't matter to me. I say what I think, and if the broad public takes an interest in what I say, that's a welcome result as far as I'm concerned, but an indirect result. Science isn't like politics: It is not based on popularity polls."

Honestly, I believe the guy. Well, I'll say that, at this point, I'm not really surprised. It's 2019. I'm not surprised by anything anymore. Heck, I welcome alien lifeforms. Maybe they can give us some advice on how to get our world together.

The third annual Women's March is approaching, and the movement has shown signs of strife. It's imploding, really. An article in Tablet Magazine revealed deep-seated antisemitism among the co-chairs of the movement, which is funny for a movement that brands itself as a haven of "intersectionality." The examples pile up, and just yesterday there was another. I'll tell you about it in a minute.

The Women's March has been imploding, and it started at the very top. Four women have come to represent the diverse face of the movement, the co-chairs: Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez, Linda Sarsour, and Bob Bland.

Increasingly, we've learned that anti-Semitism is common among these women.

Teresa Shook, who founded the Women's March has repeatedly asked them to step down: The co-chairs "have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship," Shook wrote. "But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti-LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs."

Tamika Mallory gave us the latest example, by continuing to stand by Louis Farrakhan. Check out Tamika's arrogant, nonsensical response. But the real problem came at the end of Mallory's rambling non-answer.

Later this week I'll go over the entire controversy on Glenn TV. It's harrowing, really. For now, I'll leave you with this. Critics of 4th wave feminism have argued that the radical identity politics of the left will lead to the exact kind of mistreatment that feminists claim to be against. That argument has been written off as using the slippery slope fallacy. But, as we see with the Women's March, it is in fact a brutal reality.

Remember how serious Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi were last week, when they gave their "rebuttal" to President Trump's address? They made it seem like this government shutdown is apocalyptic. A lot of Democrats have done the same. On social media and CNN at least. Thirty Democrats, however, took a different route. Puerto Rico. For cocktails at the beach.

A group of 30 Democrats have turned the government shutdown into a live-action interpretation of a Jimmy Buffet song:

Nibblin' on sponge cake, Watchin' the sun bake.

No, seriously. In the words of Press Secretary Sarah Sanders:

Democrats in Congress are so alarmed about federal workers not getting paid they're partying on the beach instead of negotiating a compromise to reopen the government and secure the border.

A photo of New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez at a resort beach has gone viral.

They arrived via chartered jet. They're staying at a seaside resort, and attended the ridiculously-priced and overhyped play "Hamilton," where tickets for opening night "ranged from $10 to $5,000," according to the Associated Press. They even attended several afterparties.

Of course, the official occasion seems legit. They're in San Juan for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC. According to a memo for the gathering:

This year's winter retreat promises to be our most widely attended yet with over 220 guests, including 39 Members of Congress and CHC BOLD PAC supporters expected to attend and participate!

Also in attendance, about 109 lobbyists, from a number of places, including "R.J. Reynolds, Facebook, Comcast, Amazon, PhRMA, Microsoft, Intel, Verizon, and unions like the National Education Association."

Donald Jr. said it well:

And of course no one says anything. I'm not even in government and I'd get killed in the press if I was on vacation right now. Why won't they cover their democrat buddies lobbyist sponsored vacation in the islands???

Maduro takes office and Venezuelans vote with their feet

Venezuela continues to collapse. A country that used to have the world's largest oil reserves is now in rags. Its money is worthless, with inflation near one million percent. People must work an average of five days at minimum wage just to afford a dozen eggs. But there is one person still pumped about Venezuela's future – its noble president, Nicolas Maduro! I'll tell you why he's still enthusiastic in just a minute…

Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro had a stellar 2018. Here are some highlights:

  • Running water and electricity only work occasionally and prices for basic goods doubled.
  • Doctors, engineers, oil workers, and electricians fled the country en masse. Over 48,000 teachers also left the country.
  • Over half a million Venezuelans fled to Peru alone.

Maduro created a new digital currency called the "petro." One petro is supposed to equal the price of a barrel of oil, about $60. U.S. Treasury Department officials call the petro a scam. Who could've seen that coming?

Maduro also announced a 3,000 percent minimum-wage hike. Even Ocasio-Cortez might roll her eyes at that one. Or find it inspiring.

And just yesterday, a Human Rights Watch report detailed how Venezuelan intelligence and security forces are arresting and torturing military personnel and their family members who are accused of plotting against Maduro. The torture includes: "brutal beatings, asphyxiation, cutting soles of their feet with a razor blade, electric shocks, food deprivation, [and] forbidding them to go to the bathroom."

It's so bad in Venezuela that even The Washington Post admits Venezuela's problems are mostly due to "failed socialist policies." But President Nicolas Maduro gave a televised New Year's address calling 2019, "the year of new beginnings." He's pumped, you see, because today he will be sworn in for his second six-year term as president. He was "re-elected" last May in an election that the international community declared illegitimate.

Thirteen nations released a statement last week urging Maduro not to take office and saying they would not recognize his presidency.

Maduro doesn't have many friends left at home or abroad. Thirteen nations released a statement last week urging Maduro not to take office and saying they would not recognize his presidency. This week, the U.S. added more Venezuelan officials to its sanctions list.

In a press conference yesterday, Maduro said:

There's a coup against me, led by Washington. I tell our civilians and our military to be ready. Our people will respond.

I think the people of Venezuela who have the means are already responding – by leaving.
