Five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America, again

We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. - Barack Obama, 2008

When he said that five years ‑‑ five days before the election four years ago, most of America didn't even pay attention. Most of America didn't even know what that meant. And when we started pointing out, this guy is going to fundamentally transform the United States of America, I said you will come to a day where you won't even recognize this country anymore. You will wake up in the morning and you won't recognize it. Have you felt that way yet? Because I have. I hit the wall to where I really truly do not recognize my country anymore when we left the guys on the roof painting the enemy. With a laser in Benghazi and the president saying "No." When we said, no, you know what, we're not going to go after the Black Panthers," I didn't understand my country anymore. When the president said the cops acted stupidly, when the president said, you know, Trayvon, he could be my son" with absolutely no evidence, nothing, I didn't recognize my country anymore. When I can see this media spin, and I mean, we've all had this conversation ever since we were young. If you're a conservative, you've had this conversation for a very, very long time. I mean, they're all liberals. The spin is out of control. But not like this. When they will cover, when they will take a man like Jack Welch and throw him under the bus because he said there's something wrong with the jobs numbers, they're cooking the books. I don't know how they are a he doing it but I've been in the business long enough to know they're cooking the books. It's not 7.8 unemployment, they're cooking the books. And they go and throw the man, a legend like Jack Welch and throw him under the bus and then not report that ADP ‑‑ this is the payroll service. They feed in some of the stats to the labor department. They've just announced that, oh, they changed the way they calculate unemployment. And it looks like that may have affected their number. It looks like unemployment was cut down by a third to half. Oh, so you mean Jack Welch is right? At the same time the president is saying, "Oh, by the way, we may not have those labor statistics this week. We may have to wait until next week after the election because of Hurricane Sandy," and nobody says anything. I don't recognize my country anymore. When I see people standing in record numbers twice in one year at the mall in Washington, when I see people reading the Constitution, when I see people arguing about the Constitution, when I see people having real debates, when I see people leaving the parties because they say, "I don't want anything to do with the pears," you know what, the Republicans had their chance; they blew it. I think they've sold us out. When I see conservatives say that, I don't recognize my country anymore... in a good way.

Look what's happened to us since the president of the United States said those words. Fundamentally transform the United States of America. We're five days away again. The exact same spot four years later. We will fundamentally transform back to our values, our traditions and our principles. Upon this, upon which this nation was founded. And I'm not saying we're going to go back to George Bush. I don't want to go back to George Bush. I don't think you want to go back to George Bush. But that's the choice in five days. To go back to something that makes sense. Real transparency. The truth. Not a bunch of these cronies in Washington, not a bunch of bogus facts and bogus jobs where we all know it's not true. But closer to the way we were on 9/11, after the attack, closer to the way we were on 9/12. To where we all started to break through our fear and we just did the right thing, Republican and Democrat. Are we going to go there, or will Barack Obama finish the job he started and close the book on what we have always known as the United States of America, one that never gives up, one that never sits down, one that never says, I don't know, I'm too tired; I don't know, we're just an oppressor nation. Are we going to believe the lies that have been told to us? Because that is the choice, and I know that seems radical, at least it does four years ago when we were saying it, but I think we've made a very good case. And the easiest way to make this case is just to paraphrase President Obama: Let me be clear, as I've said in the past, judge me by the people I associate with.

Who I associate with on economic policy, I associate with Warren Buffett and former Fed chairman Paul Volcker.  If I'm interested in figuring out my foreign policy, I associate myself with my running mate Joe Biden or with Dick Lugar, the Republican ranking member on the Senate foreign relations committee or General Jim Jones, the former supreme allied commander of NATO. Before debating healthcare, I talked to Andy Stern and SEIU members.  Before immigration debates took place in Washington, I talked with Eliseo Medina and SEIU members. - Barack Obama

You notice that there is, you notice that there is a difference between the president, the way he is even speaking. Because the way ‑‑ the man wears a mask. He will say one thing to one audience and another thing to another audience. And when he's speaking to mainstream America, he sounds just like you. But when he's speaking to radicals and labor unions and revolutionaries, all of a sudden he's got a whole different sound to him. Because the president is a fraud. Who does he associate with? Radical, revolutionary Communist Van Jones. Marxist professors. Radical anti‑Israel buddy Rashid Khalidi, Marxist spiritual advisors Jim Wallis, Jeremiah Wright, you know the list. And it is excruciatingly long. And yet today we have another one, one that we were told to dismiss, the civil rights icon, the man who delivered the benediction prayer at Obama's inauguration, Joseph Lowery, a man who gave a prayer that day that we all said, "Now wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute." But everyone told us, "Dismiss it."

"We ask you to help us work for that day when blacks will not be asked to give back, when brown can stick around, when yella will be mella, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right. " - Lowery

When white will do right. We were told he's just a quaint little old man and, sure, he's living in the past because I haven't grown up in this world that President Obama keeps saying we are in. One of the most controversial prayers at any inauguration, ever, and we were told dismiss it. And it's very clear from this that he doesn't believe that whites have ever or could do what's right. But this past weekend, it rears its ugly red again. Racism again. Lowery said that when he was a young militant, he believed that all whites were going to hell. Then he mellowed with age and decided only most of whites were going to hell. There is your mellowing according to this radical. That the president chose as the person to give the benediction to bring us all together. Who did he choose? Someone who said, "Well, I used to believe all whites go to hell. Now I only believe that most whites go to hell." Does this sound like your pastor, your priest, your rabbi? Or does this sound more like Louis Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright? Now he's amended this again. He told a rally at St. James Baptist church in Georgia he's back where he started. He's back to saying, "You know what? I now believe that all whites are going to hell.

Now, I understand people tell me that he was a valiant warrior and a just cause. He may have been a warrior in a just cause, but I'm sorry if you are a warrior in that just cause and you believe that all whites were going to hell. You are not a valiant warrior. That's not Abraham Lincoln. That's not Martin Luther King. That's not Gandhi, that's not Jesus. I don't know who that is, but that's not valiant. And let's be clear about that. Just because, just because you're for freeways, and one of the greatest advocates of freeway systems was Adolf Hitler doesn't make him a strong, valiant advocate for the international highway system. It goes without saying that if it were a clergyman that Romney had invited to pray at one of his events and that man later said all blacks are going to hell, the outcry would be vicious and deafening as it should be. It would cost Romney the election. And there would be, there would be no question of age. Do you remember Jesse Helms? There would be no question of, "Well, he's just an old man. He's just no questions asked. It would be over. This is why Romney is going to win, because there's enough Americans that are tired of the double standard and they won't accept it from Mitt Romney, either. If Mitt Romney gets in and he has the double standard and he says, well, hold me to a different standard, which I've never seen him do before, Americans won't put up with it. We're tired of it. We're tired of the lies, we're tired of the deceit, we're tired of the double standard. We're tired of being told and taught that we're something that we're not.

Now, our children are being taught this in school and we better grab onto our children, we better grab onto them fast. It was Karl Marx that said you give me one generation and I'll change the world. They almost have that generation wholly purchased now. And it's been done through our indoctrination of our school systems and through our television, through our movies, and it's got to stop and we've got to stop it right now. And that doesn't mean we have to round people up or have hearings or anything else. Get your kids out of school. You find a different way to educate your children. You stop giving your hard‑earned dollars and your hard‑earned time to those media corporations that are lying to you. That are teaching and filling your kids' heads with lies and deceit. How many of us even trust Disney anymore? Everybody was so excited about, "Oh, Walt Disney, they just did Star Wars." Great. Do you trust Disney? Because I don't. I don't ever sit ‑‑ I don't ever sit my kids in front of a Disney, the Disney channel and think, "Okay, they're safe." Not even ‑‑ not even for a second. I don't like my kids watching the Disney channel. Believe me I've worked for Disney ABC. I know how that game is played. I have good reason not to trust Disney ABC. And so do you because you've seen it.

The reason why Mitt Romney's going to win is because I've seen what happened with Chick‑fil‑A and there wasn't a single labor union bus involved in that. That was just moms and dads and people who go to church together and people who are just regular people who said, justify is justify. They may not have even agreed with the guy at Chick‑fil‑A but they knew he had a right to say it and they were sick and tired of it. Sick and tired of it. I am sick and tired of being told what the white man is. I am sick and tired of being told what this country is and is not. By people who have no idea what this country is and is not. They don't even have any idea what this country was at any given time. They can't tell you about Abraham Lincoln's real feelings. They can't tell you about George Washington and his real feelings. They can't put it into any historic context at all. They live in a bogus plastic Eurocentric world. And most Americans do not. Most Americans are not radical. Most Americans are good, decent, honest people who are now being told "You didn't create that. You didn't build that. You're no different than every other country." Then why? Then why have we been so different? "Well, because you've been stealing it from the other countries." Really? We've been stealing it? We have lifted more people out of squalor worldwide than any other institution, any other country in the history of the world. There has never been a country like the United States of America and there never will be. Never. The world will weep when the Western way of life is washed away. It's time to stop ignoring the obvious. It's time to take Obama at his word and judge him by the people whom he associates, associates with. Radicals. Radicals. Muslim Brotherhood radicals. Barack Obama has always and continues to associate with radicals, always. He's comfortable in their company but he is not comfortable with anybody from the TEA Party. He is not comfortable with anybody in a tricorner hat who says "I understand the founders; I like the founders." He is not comfortable with them but, boy, he is comfortable to have them work in the White House if they're a Communist revolutionary. He is comfortable with radicals because he himself is a radical. America, listen to these words once again.

We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. - Barack Obama, 2008

And this time our founders have hope for real change.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books.

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Buyenlarge / Contributor | Getty Images

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
