Are UFOs real? Are we not alone in the universe? You're not a kook to ask those questions says Avi Loeb, renowned Harvard astronomer and author of "Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth" — especially in the face of new evidence discovered in 2017. Scientists at a Hawaiian observatory found an unexplained object in our solar system, moving so quickly that it could only have come from another star. Was it space junk, an asteroid, or a relic from a distant civilization? Avi makes the scientific case for why we should consider the possibility that it came from alien life. Glenn and Avi discuss how scientists have traded wonder for cynicism and robbed us of a true sense of curiosity. They challenge the academic snobs within the scientific community, and all of us to approach our existence in the universe with a little more humility.
A New York court has ruled that former president Donald Trump and some of his children have committed fraud for years, in part by inflating the value of Trump's properties. But Glenn has his doubts about the judge's ruling, specifically because he ruled that Mar-A-Lago is only worth $18 million. Glenn and Stu compare that ridiculous Mar-a-Lago ruling to the prices of much smaller and way less historic houses and condos in the Palm Beach area — and it only makes it more obvious that this is just another attempt to take down Trump.
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: A New York court ruled Tuesday. Boy, I have to tell you.
If I were in New York, or I were in Washington, DC, or any of these blue states, I would be thinking, I should probably leave here.
Because I don't think I can get a fair trial.
New York court ruled Tuesday, that former President Donald Trump had committed fraud for years, to build his fortune.
New York judge Arthur Engoron, ruled in a civil case, brought by New York Attorney General James.
Now, this is the one that was like, I'm going to get him! I'm going to get him!
STU: That's what she ran.
GLENN: That's what she ran on.
Not the little dog as well. But she did run --
STU: She didn't specify the size of the dog. That's true.
GLENN: That's exactly right. Okay.
So the -- the court system, and the -- the DA decided, not to prosecute. Okay?
They decided --
STU: Alvin brag.
GLENN: Yeah. Alvin brag. They decided not to prosecute.
Police, the southern district of energetic. FBI. No one took this on. Because they didn't think there was anything there.
So she decides to go to civil court, to take them on.
Now she found a judge, that will say, that he engaged in fraud.
Now, do I think that Donald Trump inflated numbers of his wealth?
Yes. Yes. I do.
STU: Really? Now, what evidence do you have?
GLENN: Well, everything. Pretty much everything.
STU: Now, it's totally fine to do that publicly. Totally fine is not the right. It's not illegal to say you have $10 billion. When you have $2 billion. Whatever.
I'm not saying that's what he did.
You can say that. You can say, you're the wealthiest person in the world. When you're not publicly, at a press conference. And there's no crime being committed.
GLENN: But I will tell you, if you're misstating things intentionally.
That is called fraud.
STU: Especially when you do it on documents, over and over and over again to banks. And insurance companies.
GLENN: Now, I don't know about you. But I've never lied on my banking statements when I go to get a loan. Because they generally check those things out.
STU: I would be terrified to do so.
GLENN: Right. Right.
STU: Now, you have the reputation.
And, again, I don't know if this was Trump specifically. This was about his organization.
It could be one of his other executives doing it.
It does seem like it was done often
When you're Donald Trump, you have a reputation of being Donald Trump. Being very wealthy. Everything is the most grandiose thing in the world. There's probably not much questioning. Right?
GLENN: Really? They will give you a $250 million loan and not check it out?
STU: Are they going to check out the square footage of his apartment?
Probably not, right?
GLENN: So -- so -- so the judge said yesterday, that Mar-a-Lago -- he overstated the price.
STU: Just a tad.
GLENN: Just a tad. He said, it's worth $18 million.
STU: I think it was the other way around. He said it was worth more for this particular.
GLENN: No. No. No.
The judge said it was only worth 18 million.
It was he --
GLENN: Yeah. No Trump said --
STU: 700 million, I think.
GLENN: Yeah. And he did put probably $100 million into that place.
And it is also a legacy property.
I mean, it's not going for $18 million.
STU: Now, I'm going to say, neither one may be correct. If I were to say, which one is closer to its actual value. I would say, $700 million.
GLENN: I would too.
I mean, it could be worth 200, 300, 500 million. It's not worth 25 million, or 7 million. There's no way.
STU: Right. No! There's no way. How many square feet, is it?
GLENN: I don't even know.
It's this entire peninsula, that goes out of this land bridge, in west palm. I don't know if you can get an apartment for $80 million. Right on the water. Both sides.
STU: Right. A normal 4,000 square foot house, which I would assume is pretty small, right?
For West Palm Beach, but probably like, the average McMansion in Florida is 4,000.
GLENN: Maybe. Maybe.
STU: I'm just guestimating here. But a 4,000 square foot house in West Palm Beach is already, got to be, 4 million, $5 million.
GLENN: Go to realtor.com. Find out.
STU: There you go. By the way, 126 rooms. He took down to 500 square feet at Mar-a-Lago. And it's a business.
GLENN: All right. 62,000 square feet. Okay.
With both sides on the ocean. This has and golf courses. Right?
And it's -- it's got a banquet room.
It is -- I mean, it's crazy.
STU: Could you convince me it's only worth 300 million.
Yeah. Maybe. But it's not worth 18.
GLENN: So this is a 50-year-old movie studio. Okay?
Fifty-year-old movie studio.
I mean, it is a historic site in Texas now, but it's not like Mar-a-Lago.
STU: No. The one we're sitting in right now.
GLENN: The one we're sitting in right now. It's maybe worth $50 million. Okay? $50 million. You're telling me, I could have had Mar-a-Lago.
I think I would have taken Mar-a-Lago.
STU: Did they really say $18 million is the right number?
GLENN: That's what the judge said, $18 million.
STU: And that's completely absurd. What year were they talking about?
In 1945, maybe it's worth $18 million.
GLENN: It's crazy.
STU: That's really, legitimately nuts.
West Palm Beach is one of the most expensive areas in the entire country.
It is obviously like, this is a place where super wealthy people run away from other wealthy people.
When they're annoyed with low class wealthy people, they go to west Palm Beach.
GLENN: Right. So let me go to any price listing. Where can I get rooms -- I mean, I could get from high to low.
It doesn't necessarily do that. That's ridiculous. High to low.
STU: I love how Glenn's head is attempting tasks. This is how it will work.
GLENN: Thank you. I will put a minimum of 5 million. $5 million is the minimum I want to see.
Okay. So let's -- all right.
So I have a three-bedroom. Three and a half bath for 7.8 million. That's a condo overlooking, okay?
I have another condo for 6.1.
STU: Do they have the footage listed or no?
GLENN: Yeah. 2000 square feet.
STU: 2000 square feet. And how many millions --
STU: But you can get Mar-a-Lago for three times the cost? Wow.
GLENN: Yeah. I have a 1-acre lot. Okay?
It has -- it shows a picture of the house. But I have a feeling, the house is so horrible.
You know how they do that. Look at this. And they're selling it as a lot, and not a house.
8.4. A 1 acre lot. How many acres is Mar-a-Lago.
STU: That's a good question.
GLENN: A lot.
STU: It was 1980. The cost.
Let's see. Looking here. 17-acre state.
That's the federal foundation.
Yeah. It's hard to -- looks like 17 acres.
But there's a 3.2-acre plot. Which has nothing on it. It's just grass.
Currently listed for $200 million. It is -- it is a --
GLENN: Oh, yeah.
STU: It's a very nice plot of land.
STU: However, you know, you wouldn't think that just land would be 240 -- they haven't sold it yet.
It could be one of those e Bay things where it hasn't sold.
GLENN: Where I have a five-bedroom, five and a half bath, five thousand square feet, and half an acre.
STU: Okay. So this is what you might throw at, as a McMansion. Right? A very nice, big house. Not a ton of land.
GLENN: Right. A half an acre.
STU: The house fits, but barely.
GLENN: Uh-huh. Yes.
STU: How much are they asking for that?
I'm -- I'm just saying.
STU: It's an expensive area.
GLENN: There's a condo here for five thousands of individuals square feet. Four bedroom. Five and a half bath. No land.
8.4. There is a condo. Six bedroom condo.
Six bedroom, seven and a half bath. 9,232 square feet.
And that's 39 million.
STU: I mean, come on. The claim is that the Palm Beach county assessor had appraised Mar-a-Lago between 18 million and 27.6 million.
Now, the assessors a lot of times, have strange values on homes, right? Have you ever noticed that? Again, you're not doing this yourself.
You're looking at someone else, assessing your home.
And it doesn't always align with what Zillow says.
So that would necessarily be fraud. You have to believe, it's much, much closer -- I mean, $426.5 for Mar-a-Lago, which was their low -- low end value that Trump had put it at.
GLENN: Is reasonable. Reasonable.
STU: Seems reasonable. Again, I've never bought anything in the nine figures. Never made a 9-figure purchase.
STU: But I would assume.
GLENN: I make them all the time.
STU: Yeah, you might make them all the time. I'm trying to -- you have to understand. I'm saying to the audience, you have to understand. So the audience understands. Trying to get Glenn to understand, not everyone makes -- you know, a nine-figure purchase, look, the difference between 100 and 400 million for the average person. Might be difficult to -- how would you even figure that out, without going to some expert?
I have to believe, just back at the envelope. $400 million seems pretty reasonable for Mar-a-Lago. It's probably around where it is.
It couldn't possibly be 18 million. That is bonkers!
And anyone who knows anything about real estate would say that.
Yet, everybody in the media, I have heard talk about this story, as quoted in the overstatement of 2300 percent -- from -- from Letitia James.
Which is kind of -- it's bonkers.
GLENN: So, anyway, they are breaking his companies up now. The -- the court has taken control.
And has assigned people to take over the company. And break it apart.
And I don't know. Sell the assets off. I guess that's what you do.
If anybody is in the -- in the market for a really huge, really huge house, that also has beachfront property on both sides of it, you might be able to get a deal soon.
STU: Well, this is a no longer based ruling. What is in danger, are his New York properties.
Which is the gulf in Westchester. Trump Tower.
GLENN: It's unbelievable. Unbelievable.
STU: They're really going after all of it. And trying to get him to force his control to be gone.
Eric is the one to run the company right now. And he would be out.
GLENN: This is why we have always, always done well, in America.
Because you could count automate law to be consistent.
Nobody -- in my lifetime, I never heard, you know, stories, day after day. Where I went, wow. Never heard that done before.
Never. And that's why people invested in America.
That's why companies were built here in America. Because somebody just couldn't take it away from you.
STU: That's why you don't want to do business in Venezuela.
GLENN: Exactly right.
They can take it away. They can accuse you of something, and take it away.
And the law did not really matter. The law was just a player, in somebody's curio cabinet.
And that's exactly what's happening now in America. You want to destroy somebody.
No, you can destroy them. Destroy their whole life.
It's really sick.
London's Metropolitan Police force has opened an investigation into accusations made against comedian Russell Brand. This comes after the BBC, Brand's publisher and talent agency, sponsors like Burger King, and even the British Parliament have come after or abandoned him based solely on allegations. Glenn argues that while we still don't know the truth about whether Brand is guilty or not, it's shocking to see just how fast and viciously everyone has abandoned him. Is this the global elites' way of punishing him for speaking out against their plans? Glenn also reviews a similar story about NFL star Chandler Jones, who claims he was taken against his will to a mental health hospital by the Las Vegas fire department, injected, and forced to sleep on the floor after posting a "disturbing social media rant" — which he says was the result of a hack. Do we still live in a society where people are innocent until proven guilty?
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Pat, can you help me out? How does an investigation usually work with the police? Do they -- do they watch TV and hear claims, and then they go and investigate?
PAT: Oh, my gosh. You must be a police insider. That's exactly how it works.
GLENN: I'm not wrong, right?
PAT: I would never do that. No.
GLENN: Okay. British police have opened a sex crimes investigation triggered by news reports covering Russell Brand.
PAT: Oh, my gosh. Isn't that something? This is so clear, that they hate his guts, because of the things that he's been saying.
GLENN: No. Two things could be true. He could absolutely be this guy.
PAT: Right. He could. He could.
But my guess is, if this was ten years ago, or 15 years ago, he wouldn't have this problem at all.
PAT: They would be coming after him.
GLENN: At the time, he did it on the BBC.
PAT: Right. Right.
GLENN: London's Metropolitan Police Force said Monday, that it had received a number of allegations of sexual offenses after a television documentary and newspaper investigations.
But there had been no arrests. Brand. Russell Brand denies allegations of sexual assault made by four women, in a Channel 4 television documentary and the Times -- Sunday Times newspapers.
The accusers who have not been named, include one who said she was sexually assaulted during a relationship with him. When she was 16. Another one says, Brand raped her in Los Angeles in 2012. Last week, a woman accused Brand of exposing himself to her, in 2008.
The woman told CBS News partner network BBC news, that she was working in the same building, where the BBC's Los Angeles office was. And when the incident occurred, Brand went on to the air to laugh about it, moments later on his radio show.
Well, we should be able to find that. The police force did not name Brand in its statement. But referred to recent articles in a documentary.
Said, its detectives were investigating allegations of non-recent sexual offenses, both in London and elsewhere.
We continue to encourage anyone who believes they may have been a victim of sexual offense, no matter how long it was, to contact us. We need to understand, it can feel like a difficult step to take.
And I want to reassure, that we have a team of specialist officers available to advise and support.
This is coming from their detective superintendent.
Brand has denied the allegations, saying his relationships have always been consensual. Even though, he was in an admitted period of being very, very promiscuous. That's a quote from him.
Known for his unbridled and risky standup routines, Brand was a major UK star in the early 2000s.
He hosted shows on radio and television, wrote memoirs, charting his battles with drug and alcohol, appeared in several Hollywood movies, and was briefly married to Katy Perry between 2010 and 2012.
Brand has largely disappeared from the mainstream media, but has built up a large following online with videos, mixing wellness and conspiracy theories.
Last week, YouTube said it would stop Brand from making money from the streaming site, where he has 6.6 million subscribers. Due to the serious allegations against him.
In an exclusive interview with CBS Mornings, the YouTube CEO said, they -- they decided to suspend monetization of Brand's channel because of YouTube's creator responsibility guidelines policy.
Quote, if creators have off-platform behavior, or there's an off-platform news that could be damaging to the broader creator ecosystem, you could be suspended from your monetization program. CBS mornings co-host Tony whatever said.
It has impacted a large number of creators and personalities on the platform in the past. YouTube went on to say, that's what played out in this particular case around the serious allegations.
So they have -- by the way, he's been dropped by his talent agency. He has been dropped for live performances.
And his publisher has also dropped him. So this guy has nothing. He has nothing. And he hasn't been charged with a crime.
PAT: And that happens so quickly.everybody got on board, right away.
And if you didn't get on board, the BBC is coming knocking at your door, asking you why. Hey, are you about to demonetize him? They were trying to get Rumble to demonetize him.
Rumble said, no. We're not going to do that.
GLENN: The parliament. Parliament, told Twitter to demonetize him and shut him down.
Parliament. I've never heard of that before.
So there's something very, very wrong here. And two things could be true.
He might have done these things. So don't wash your hands of that. Let's make sure that we know what happened.
But the other thing that is true. This has never happened before.
I've never seen. You had Menendez just a few minutes ago saying, well, you know, the charges. You're innocent until proven guilty.
And I demand. Well, what about Russell Brand? What about Russell Brand?
The story that is related to this, is a story about Chandler Jones. Do you know anything about Chandler Jones?
PAT: Very little.
GLENN: So he has claimed now, because he set off a tweet, where he said, the owner of the Raiders. And the head coach. Or the GM. He can't work for anymore.
Because the -- I think it was the owner had -- had information, and was protect protecting a man that molested his goddaughter. Okay?
And then nobody is really talking about that.
Nobody is really focused on this story.
And I don't know what this story was really all about.
Listen to this. NFL star Chandler Jones has claimed he was taken against his will, to a mental health hospital by the Las Vegas Fire Department last week. In an alarming social media post on Monday night, Jones said he had been injected against his will, and forced to sleep on the floor.
It comes a week after Jones went on a disturbing social media rant, accusing Raiders' owner Mark Davis of protecting the identity of a man he claims molested his goddaughter.
Jones, who is the younger brother of USC champion, John, later said that he had been hacked.
In a post on X, captioned first day out, but I'm still alive. Jones wrote: First day out. If my fans and friends were wondering, I was taken by the Las Vegas Fire Department last week against my will.
I was injected with, I don't know what.
They say that it was a court hold, and the Las Vegas police put me on it.
I hadn't done anything wrong. The police said, people were concerned about me. Because of my posts online.
I answered. Yeah. I know.
I answered my front door, and a group of five to seven were there to put me in an ambulance, where I was later ejected.
And I asked them not to.
I had in cell phone. Or in communication.
I was taken to Southern Hills Hospital. And transferred to Seven Hills, where they tried to force me to take meds and injections.
The NFL and Raiders star Jones, 33, added, I called Raiders' GM six to seven times, asking for help. And wondered if he had put me in here. But he had never answered.
I even left him voicemails. I was just trying to figure out, why I'm not allowed in the building. And still, why I don't have to continue to watch my brother suffer every Sunday. But no answer.
This place is not a place for high-profile athletes.
My first night, I slept on the floor. And was not offered a bed.
My brothers had nothing to bring me.
My brothers had to bring me decent meals to eat, and clothe.
My dad read to me Bible versus.
Every day, I miss, is $1 million. And I'm still confused on what I did wrong.
I'm still here. And I'm very sane.
Now, he goes on.
This is disturbing.
And again, I don't know what the truth is, on this.
But this isn't the first person that has been put into a mental institution.
Now, he's put into a mental institution, he claims. Because of his online post.
This is the way Stalin used to do it.
And maybe he is crazy, I don't know.
But listen to this story.
The mistress of a Pennsylvania police officer, spent three days in a mental hospital, after he had her involuntarily committed, when they broke up.
Ronald Davis is now facing charges for abusing his power and authority, to convince peers to issue a mental health valuation, and section his girlfriend.
Davis is married with kids, according to police records. He was having a relationship with the girl. Also 37.
They were together for -- for months, until the romance soured. He then told her, he would make her look crazy, and he did.
Pennsylvania state police confirmed Davis had been suspended without pay today. He's also facing felony strangulation and false imprisonment charges.
So I guess now we're going into a time, where we're putting people into mental institutions, that we either don't like, or maybe are saying something -- I mean, I don't know what's going on.
I just know. Have you seen these before?
PAT: No. No. It's really chilling.
GLENN: I mean, with Russell Brand, if you have done something, you need to pay the price for justice.
You need to pay the price.
If you are somebody who is living life on the edge, you're not going to be safe.
You're not. You have to do the right thing.
Just do the next right thing. If you have something in your life, clean it up right now. Clean it pick up.
You don't need anything in your life that you have to worry about. Just do the right thing. Because they will find things that you are doing and take you out.
And if you're just and it's not true, I believe it will work itself out. But if you are dirty and corrupt and have done something, the best thing to do is just pay the price. Let God work it out. Stop whatever you're doing. Turn back to God.
But we are living in times where things could get very, very dicey. They want to put you in jail with AI, and with deepfakes. There's a -- there's not a lot going for you. If they do want to put you in jail.
Just do the right thing. Stay active. Stay involved. Always speak your mind.
But shod your feet in the gospel of peace, always.
The United States is yet again on the verge of a government shutdown as House Republicans work to cut spending. But is that really a bad thing as the media has suggested? Glenn and Pat debunk some of the myths surrounding this current shutdown debate and review a "60 Minutes" report that details what your tax dollars are actually funding. Did you know that your money is bailing out small businesses in Ukraine? Meanwhile, here at home, small businesses are suffering under inflation. "We are destroying ourselves," Glenn warns, as the Biden administration depletes our munitions and oil supplies. So, maybe it's about time for a government shutdown.
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Oh, man, I am so concerned about the government shutdown. And Pat is here to share my panic.
PAT: Oh man. I am scared. I am scared.
GLENN: What are we going to do?
PAT: I don't know. Same thing we always will, only it will be better. Because they are spending less of our money.
GLENN: But can they? Can they spend less of our money?
PAT: Well, they have to if the government shuts down, which is the beauty of a government shutdown.
They have to do all the necessary things. Like pay off the Social Security benefits and the veterans benefits, and all of that. They have to continue to do that, and they do.
STU: Yeah, including the interest.
PAT: Right. Right.
STU: You notice they're not talking about defaulting on the debt this time. That's weird.
PAT: That is weird.
GLENN: That was their biggest concern. We will default on the at the time. I haven't heard word one on defaulting on the debt.
PAT: I haven't either.
GLENN: That's weird. Now they're trying to say, you know these Republicans, they want to have a government shutdown. Because they want to shut down the ATF. Yeah. Yeah. At least we're honest about it. You know, all the things you want to do. Oh, how dare you, we want to take guns away. We love guns. I was kissing mine last night. Oh, I cleaned the tongue. I cleaned the barrel of my gun with my tongue, I love it so much.
PAT: And while we're at it, maybe the FBI too. Maybe that can go as well. Maybe that can go.
GLENN: And I don't know. The IRS. That wouldn't be a bad thing.
PAT: Yeah. Department of Education. Yeah. Get rid of all the nonessential nonsense.
GLENN: Yeah. Kevin McCarthy says, we're not going to default.
We have a number of days until funding runs out.
Do you know what we didn't have until -- until 1980.
We never had them.
If -- you know, if the budget wasn't done, and it happened many times, you know, since 1776.
The budget wasn't done. They just went on, and no big deal. The budget will be finished soon.
But now, after 1980, I wonder what changed.
GLENN: I wonder what changed. Because now we have to shut it down.
No. We really don't. We really don't. It's all funny money in the first place, you know.
PAT: That's for sure.
GLENN: So the -- the House Republicans are working hard today, to get everybody on the same page.
And that is, yeah. We should stop spending all of this -- this money.
And what do you say? We start with a few things. Like, no. The taxpayer shouldn't pay for abortions.
And send people on a vacation. At our expense.
And then at the end of that vacation, they have an abortion. No. Uh-uh.
No. No. I don't think so. Uh-uh.
PAT: How do you feel about the money going to Ukraine though? You love this for small business loans?
GLENN: Well, now, hold on just a second.
We're trying to help them win a war. Let me -- let me give you a couple of clips, from CBS.
When was the last time 60 Minutes actually did something where, he cared about.
GLENN: Well, they did this weekend. Listen to this from 60 Minutes. Cut one.
VOICE: What Americans have to pay is financing more than just weapons. We've discovered the US governments are buying seeds and fertilizer for Ukrainian farmers, and covering the salaries of Ukraine's first responders.
VOICE: Yeah. Yeah, 57,000 of them. That includes between the trains. This rescue dog named, Joy, to comb through the wreckage of Russian strikes and looking for survivors.
GLENN: Okay. I don't mind helping that one.
VOICE: And the US also funds the divers who we saw clearing unexploded ammunition from the country --
GLENN: Maybe that. Maybe.
VOICE: To make them safe again. The swimming and fishing. Russia's invasion shrank Ukraine's economy by about a third. We were surprised to find that to keep it afloat, the US government is subsidizing small businesses.
GLENN: Wait. What. Hold it. Now, the dog thing. Okay. If we can help out on the dog thing, fine.
PAT: And it seems to be connected to the war.
GLENN: Yeah. And finding the unexploded bombs in the rivers.
Okay. Okay. But wait a minute. Wait a minute. Paying 56,000 firefighters to show up.
You know we're also paying the government salaries. And we're paying the people's Social Security. Okay?
We're not even paying it here.
And every dollar that we print to send over there, is causing inflation, here.
So while our -- while we're getting poorer and poorer, it's almost like he designed it to be this way.
While we're getting poorer and poorer, they're -- they're getting bailed out by our government. And every time we send a dollar over there, you get poorer.
And it's not because it's taking money.
It's because we're printing money. Inflation.
So now we find out, that they're also, they're not helping small businesses here.
No. No. No.
When we had COVID. No. Home Depot.
Sure. Home Depot. I mean, they're safe.
But the Ma and pop stores, they're completely unsafe.
Huh! And now we're paying.
But wait, there's more. Cut two.
VOICE: Russia's invasion shrank Ukraine's economy by about a third. We were surprised to find that to keep it afloat, the US government is subsidizing small businesses, like Tatiana's mid-ware company.
VOICE: That's cute.
GLENN: Oh, that is very nice.
VOICE: This fashion is a condition of war. We have to work. We have to pay taxes. We have to pay --
GLENN: Taxes. Oh, no.
VOICE: To our employees. We have to work. Don't stop.
VOICE: Why does that help Ukraine win the war?
VOICE: Because economy, it's a foundation of advocacy.
It's an aid from government, but it's an aid, say, from their heart of every ordinary American person.
GLENN: Okay. So wait. Hang on just a second. I'm not sure all that aid is from the heart of every American. Because we didn't know. If they would have asked us to help out, we would have been -- we would have been great. We are the most charitable nation in the history of the world.
PAT: And we would. We do give charitably.
PAT: More than the rest of the world, combined.
GLENN: Correct. But instead, they went through our government. And our government didn't tell us what they're doing. And they are doing things that are causing us pain. And not just pain.
What's happening here is, we are destroying ourselves. We're giving them all of our tanks and ammunition, that we are now dangerously low.
We don't have enough howitzer shells in you, to do any kind of war.
And we can only make 25,000 of those, a month.
Russia is using 60,000 a day.
A day. So I don't know.
I don't feel comfortable with this.
We've also destroyed our own oil supply. Our strategic oil reserve, almost gone.
We're destroying our ability to make oil, to find oil. To find oil. To refine it into gasoline. And yet, we're sending stuff over there.
We're letting everybody have whatever they want over there.
Which our farmers are being told, we can't use any more, because of global warming.
Huh. Now, that's weird. How come it's okay for Ukraine. But not for us.
You haven't even passed a farm bill over here, to help our farmers.
But we're buying their grain over there. Which, by the way, because they're getting free grain.
They're planting crops. They can now sell it at such a low cost. That Poland has said, you're killing our farmers.
We can't support you anymore, Ukraine.
See what happens when man starts to get involved in ways that he shouldn't get involved?
See what happens? All of the unexpected consequences that come from this?
Or maybe they are expected.
So now, the Biden administration is requesting over $20 billion more. We wondered how they were paying for it.
We wondered where it was going.
Well, there are some things that you should probably know.
There is -- there is some questioning of some of the people that were in the administration over there.
And part of the group that was getting the money, and divvying it out. I think about 60 of them now, are actually being investigated.
Or going to jail. Or have lost their jobs.
Because they were corrupt. And taking and using our money for other things.
I just didn't know we were paying for everything over there.
Things that we wouldn't pay for us, over here.
Didn't know that. Just --
PAT: Nobody did.
Except the administration.
Until Sunday, with 60 Minutes.
GLENN: Yeah. And USAID. Which is now run by Cass Sunstein's wife.
She's in charge of USAID. And that's where all this money is coming from. And being distributed through.
Now, one last thing.
You know, that lady at least sounded grateful.
I want you to listen to the Ukrainian's -- hmm. Tell us how they really feel about our money. Your money. Listen.
VOICE: The country is fighting formal its survival. Bankrolled in large part by US taxpayers.
The outcome may be decided by America's willingness to keep paying.
VOICE: Some Americans say, we're very sympathetic to you, Americans. But we're going through tough times at home, and we just can't afford to keep supporting you.
VOICE: Ukrainians pay with their lives.
GLENN: Ukrainians pay with their lives. And...
VOICE: And I believe all their lives are much more than money. Much more than taxpayer's money.
GLENN: Their lives count much more than taxpayer's money. Yeah. It does. It does.
Although, nobody asked us. Now, this is what Joe Biden is talking about, when he calls for -- when he's saying, it's going to be a government shutdown.
You don't have to shut it down. Just agree to send any more money to Congress.
And then propose exactly what you want. And exactly where it's going.
Go through the proper channels for it. But you don't want to do that. Because you know.
I mean, I find it amazing. That CBS and 60 Minutes. Ran this right at the beginning of the budget stuff.
STU: Yeah. Incredible.
GLENN: That says something.
STU: Yeah. It does. It says, even they are getting fed up now with the shenanigans of this administration.
PAT: I hope so.
And I think, you know, we talked about this a little bit yesterday. But I think even the liberals in the media, are disgusted with this president.
And they see the fact.
And even if they're not disgusted. They understand he's a problem. And he might not win.
Because people are seeing, how compromised he is, mentally and physically. And so this might be part of encouraging him to exit.
GLENN: By the way, we now have photos of the ambassador -- the American ambassador, that was over in Ukraine.
Meeting twice with the Burisma official. After being told the firm was corrupt.
So we were told, that they didn't know anything. It's impossible to not know that Burisma and the head of Burisma was a total oligarch, that literally beheads the people, that -- that are in his way. And our American ambassador was told, as was Joe Biden, don't meet with these guys.
Don't. They're really, really bad. But the Burisma official, who worked closely with Hunter Biden was invited to two separate events, by the US ambassador.
For what reason? For what reason?
After she was told, have no contact with this person.
What was going on? What is still going on?
Why are we bankrupt America. This isn't America 1960, 1940. We have lost our manufacturing base. We are now in the midst of losing our cheap energy. And we have lost our cheap labor.
So what made America, America, in the 1940s, '50s, and '60s was, we had cheap labor. We had abundant, cheap energy. We had all of our natural resources. And nobody else had anything.
Well, now we don't have those things. Because they've been taken off the table.
And now when we do a marshal plan, by the way, in inflation-aged numbers, we are only about $50 billion away, and Joe Biden wants another 20 billion today. We're about $50 billion away, from the cost of the entire marshal plan.
Which rebuilt Europe.
GLENN: Where is all that money? Where is all that money?
And had you --
PAT: And what you want to bet, we're past that already. In reality. We don't have any idea.
So when they say, we have some extremists, that want to shut the government down.
I don't think it's extremist.
I really don't. With all the corruption, which we'll get into here in a second.
All the corruption that seems to be everywhere now.
Everywhere. All these deals being made with foreign countries by our senators. And our House members.
On top of that, the incredible spending!
I think it would be a good idea to shut it down.
World leaders recently gathered in India for this year's G20 Summit and produced a document that is practically the Great Reset on steroids. Glenn reviews the G20 New Delhi Leaders' Declaration, which outlines policy plans and priorities for member nations, and reveals the 10 biggest predictions from his book "Dark Future" that the document now proposes. For instance, global elites are now openly calling for the scaling back of private and public land use, the embedding of elitist priorities into AI, and the introduction and adoption of CBDCs. So much for so-called "conspiracy theories."
