It didn’t take long for Andrew Yang to learn how vicious and broken the media and our two-party political system are. During his 2020 Democratic presidential campaign, he felt the system’s corruption firsthand. So now, he’s on a mission to fix it — and he started by leaving the Democratic Party behind to form a new one: The Forward Party, which he outlines in his newest book, "Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy." Yang joins Glenn for a conversation that the two-party system says should never happen, but that results in something rare: allies in the fight to prepare for the greatest upheaval mankind might ever have seen — the automation-fueled “revolution of all things.” While Glenn and Andrew debate climate change and Yang’s trademark $1,000 universal basic income proposal, they find common ground on tech, cryptocurrency, and disturbing political trends that would have the Founding Fathers rolling in their graves.

‘The Media Is an Assembly Line to Hell' | Andrew Yang | Ep 129
Knowles REJECTS Claims Daily Wire to Blame for Nashville School Shooting | Ep 264
The recent atrocious shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, further reveals just how sick our nation truly is. And unfortunately, there are few honest conversations currently taking place about fixing it, because our corporate media is too busy blaming conservative news outlets like the Daily Wire. Tonight on Glenn TV, Glenn speaks with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles, who both addresses the blame and also explains how the Daily Wire plans to handle the accusations: "We’re safe here. I hope. We are upping that security now." Then, Glenn looks at the imminent changes facing the global financial system. A new economic order is coming, and the U.S. DOLLAR doesn’t seem to be in the plans. What will that new financial system look like for YOU? And is the federal government’s new payment portal, called FedNow, the beginning of a digital dollar or central bank digital currency? Glenn answers all these questions, and then he is joined by former Assistant Treasury Secretary Monica Crowley. She exposes the FedNow system for its hidden, ulterior motive: “It will be the END of your economic freedom.”
EXPOSED: Far-left ‘religion’ SACRIFICES REALITY for power
Somehow, less than two days after the tragedy at The Covenant School in Nashville, TN, some within the far-left actually are framing conservatives as the violent ones to blame. This demonstrates the NUMBER ONE rule required to create disinformation, Glenn explains. And there’s few better at this tactic than the far-left and today’s federal government. In this clip, Glenn exposes how they’re changing our language, our meaning, and using their ‘religion’ to SACRIFICE REALITY. But, thankfully, there’s just one simple step YOU can do to halt their ‘crazy grab of power.’ Listen to the clip to find out what that step is…

GLENN: So let's look at what's going on.
Nashville, somehow or another, this has all been turned around. Now it's the Christians. It's not the shooter anymore.
It's not even the gun. It's all these people who are anti-trans. I'm not anti-trans. I don't really care. I really don't care.
I mean, I don't think we're hanging out, going to the movies together.
You do your thing. You be you, boo. I'll be me.
So we don't hate people. What I do think is a real problem in society, is trans people coming into our schools and doing trans story hour.
Or teaching our children, who are in first grade. That you can be whatever you want.
Well, okay. In America, that's true.
But you can't become a woman. And changing the meaning of all of our words. Why are our kids killing themselves?
A couple of reasons. Social media and total confusion.
There is no truth anymore. Rule one of disinformation, make your yes mean no. And your no mean yes.
Annoy and confuse the opponent. Then, accuse them of disinformation and violence.
I mean, are we not seeing that now?
A few people are skiting this maneuver, better than today's leftists.
And I hate to say this. The United States government.
They have made the world their personal kingdom of performance. And the mainstream media cares more about misgendering a child murderer, than the death of six people, where three were children.
We're living in Alison and Wonderland. Alison in Wonderland, actually has nothing on the left's cognitive nihilism, and their hatred for order.
Democrats, good, decent Democrats, who have been my neighbor. What the hell is wrong with you?
What is wrong with you?
Your silence is going to be the death of all of us.
We may not agree on what to vote for. Or who to vote for.
But Good Lord, man. Can we not all stand together on the Bill of Rights?
This goes all the way up to the Oval Office. Politicians have always loved to showboat meaningless words. They don't care.
They don't care about any of it. They certainly don't care about the violence against pronouns. Big tech has made sure that pronoun activists always have a platform.
Until Elon Musk meaned his way into Twitter ownership, Silicon Valley punished pronoun misgendering, far more judiciously than violent radicalism and child pornography. The military buckled. Even the military.
I mean, academia, they're the ones who started the pronoun disinformation campaign.
And not just the gender studies department. It's in the UCLA law school. Harvard medical school. Even the university of Pennsylvania, the swim team.
Hollywood, even on its last legs. Oh, they -- they love the joys of hypocrisy. Typified by Demi Lovato's decision to take -- take back her decision. She's now going after she, after a stint as they.
But, you know, it's a sea of theys and thems in Hollywood.
Corporate media has elevated pronoun usage to a -- to a beat as important as sports and the economy. Or better yet, fashion.
Because that's all this is, is a fashion trend. And you're going to look back on those pictures. And be more embarrassed than anything you used to wear in high school.
You'll be more embarrassed of any of the bad hair cuts you've had at some point in your life.
This has become ritualistic. This is a -- a religion.
And we are ritually sacrificing objective journalism, objective truth, reality. And these activists in disguise, we all see through it. Have once again demanded that the rest of the world, fall to their knees.
NPR has a pronoun Psalm. If you'll open up your Scriptures now to NPR.
A guide to gender identity terms. Now, this is the new standard. Today's American journalism.
I mean, you can -- you can count on total uniformity. Or one taking it to where you think, okay. You can't go any further than that. And the other one going, yeah. We're more woke than you. Washington Post published a guide to the words they used in their gender coverage.
The Associated Press embraced the inanity of pronoun scapegoating. New York Times, devoted at least a dozen articles to gender pronouns, including a guide to Neo-pronouns, like bun, and bun self. Kitten and kitten self. Vamp and vamp self.
Prin, princess. Princel. They, they're, they cel.
You can find a hundred of these guides online, published by reputable institutions, schools, businesses, departments, corporations, universities.
You name it. If they've published it, you should run from them, like the plague.
Such unanimity, would seem to indicate an obvious truth, right?
When everybody is agreeing on something, well, it must be, there's truth.
Yeah. Anyone who disagrees, unquestionably wrong.
If there was only a way they could all chant this, in unison, like -- like a Gregorian chant. Wouldn't that be great?
Because if they could just do that, change it into Latin.
And all chant it, at the same time, reciting the creeds of their political doctrine. Instead, their performative unity serves as yet another synchronized dance by authoritarians.
They're terrible at persuasion. That's why we're going through this. They couldn't persuade you. They couldn't persuade you, that climate change was as big of a deal that we should spend 154 trillion dollars, and destroy the world's economy. They couldn't convince you.
So they'll force you. They'll go around your back.
You know, screaming at the waitress doesn't make your lamb chop cook faster. It doesn't happen. This is Saul Alinsky, at the highest level. Isolate your opponent. I mean, who wants to be friends with a transphobic, homophobic racist. No one. So we all abandon our friends, lest we get swept up. We remain silent, lest we get clubbed in the streets. Even if they're virtual streets, I don't want to be clubbed.
And so we remain silenced.
Violence, may bring quiet. But it will not lead to peace. Hatred -- actual hatred, like actual violence. Will not inspire respect or even attention.
This is why they're now trying to pass what I would describe as the Patriot Act two. All in the name of banning TikTok. I'll get into that in a minute.
It's a Patriot Act. And they have to pass it. Because the ruse is over. People see the direction, that the radicals and allies are taking us. And they know, we are in trouble.
This is why, they have to grab the machinery of the government and use every tool at their disposal. From the IRS, to the FBI.
You know that the Inflation Reduction Act actually has nothing to do with reducing inflation. It is all about global warming. That's all it is.
In their own words, they admit that now. They lied to you, admit it, and we remain quiet.
Because their accusations of disinformation are tactical maneuvers of domination and control.
These pronoun activists alone, have managed to wreck the most fundamental components of grammar.
They have destroyed things that nobody even questioned. She means he. He means they. Him means her.
They figured out how to scramble the parts of speech, until sentences cannot be identified, even by their closest loved ones.
Have you read a story yet, where you don't understand it? You're like, I don't know who this person is. What they are. I don't know what happened in this story. That's intentional. Beyond the dangers of a society without boundaries or meaning or truth.
Their crusade is also dangerous in its use. Am I preaching to the choir? Disinformation is a weapon of belittlement. A way for leftists to reduce us.
To silence and hiding. But their seeming invincibility can't perform miracles.
More importantly, it cannot impose universal truths. They've decided that the word pedophile is discriminatory, so they'll replace it with minor-attracted persons. What's next?
We call murderers harm-attracted persons?
Look, here's all you have to know today. Don't buy any of this.
Their world is coming apart. You have to stay focused on what's important, on their crazy grab for power.
All the rest of it, all you have to do today, is the next right thing.
And that begins with letting your yes mean yes, and your no mean no.
How our ‘SICK SOCIETY’ is causing tragedies like Nashville
Mental illness is real. Sometimes people are chemically predisposed to it, Glenn says. But sometimes, it’s our ‘freaking sick society’ that pushes others to the brink of destruction. In the Nashville tragedy at The Covenant School, Glenn says, it doesn’t matter what the killer’s pronouns or gender were. Because at the end of the day, he says, it takes somebody with severe mental illness to do what she did. And THAT’S the crux of America’s biggest issue today. So, where do we go from here? In this clip, Glenn explains how speaking out and telling the TRUTH is one of the best things any individual — and our society — can do moving forward…
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: There is a sickness. It is not the guns. It is mental illness, that is causing these things. And you don't have to be trans to be mentally ill.
You don't have to be a bad guy, to be mentally ill. Mental illness is real. Going in and looking at eight and 9-year-olds and plotting to kill them, is a mental illness.
It is a mental illness.
There is something so rotten at the core. What do you suppose that could be?
Now, it could be many things. Just chemical mental illness. Sometimes people are predisposed to mental illness.
We could find that out by talking to mom.
All right. Might be that. It could be that she had some sort of -- some sort of problem growing up, and she wasn't comfortable in her body. And all of the answers, because all of the medical people in her life and all the school people in her life were probably telling her, yeah. You're probably a guy.
And so she identified as a guy. And she didn't get any happier. It could be, that she identified as a guy and she was happier, except, people were telling her that there is a liquidation. A literal genocide, that is going on. And she felt she had to do something about it.
By the way, I mean, I hate to point this out. I'm sure the -- you know, media is -- is all on top of this.
But there was a take action take, that was scheduled this week. Revenge day, specifically for the trans community, one democratic supporter and cofounder of this movement, was actually paying for people to get gun -- gun training.
Now, if you're doing vengeance and training for guns, I don't know. There might be something to that.
Our friends at the daily wire. Our prayers are with you. Daily wire was mentioned by trans revenge day.
Or vengeance day.
Okay. Great. Great. It could be that. You know what it wasn't?
That -- that definitely, not that.
It was something inside of this girl.
It was either a chemical imbalance, that she was born with, that confused her on the truth. Or it's this freaking sick society, that is doing it.
My bet, is the society.
But I could easily be convinced that it was the society that pushes sick individuals, even deeper and in the wrong direction. But maybe that's just me. I mean, I have always -- always given the -- the left, the benefit of the doubt in any of these shooters.
When -- when a guy tried to kill half of Congress, by killing all of the Republican congressmen on a baseball field and he was a Bernie Sanders supporter. And he stated he wanted to kill all the Republicans. I still said, this is a person with mental illness.
They've never given us the benefit of the doubt, on the other side.
I always do.
You have four trans people that have just done multiple shootings. Okay?
You have four.
Four multiple shooters.
Now, I'm sorry. But that's such a small slice of the population, that you shouldn't have four of -- of them on anything. Except maybe I don't know. Story hour at libraries.
You -- you don't have a statistic about -- about mass shooters, and have four of one category.
Something is wrong. Something is wrong. And you know what the press will say? It is a response to things like this. They will say, it's my bigotry and my hatred of trans. I don't care.
I really don't care. Call yourself whatever you want.
Are you happy? Are you a better person, because of it?
Are you moving forward? Are you being more peaceful?
Good. Then I'm fine. You know, if you're trying to shove anything down my throat, right or left, from religion to transgenderism, shut the hell up.
Shut up. I don't have to listen to you. I'm not going to accept something because somebody else tells me to!
That's not the way the world works.
That is fascism. But they're going to say, that things like this, I'm only saying this, because of my hatred. I don't have any hatred. You know what I hate?
I hate lies.
I hate the constant lying from everyone in the press, everyone in politics, it seems.
Everyone at this White House.
All of its supporters.
I am sick and tired of the medical industry telling me about raccoon dogs, and lying in such a -- such an insidious way.
Put a report out, but don't put any of the -- don't put any of the facts out. Don't -- make sure you don't have any of the real science-y stuff there.
Because you'll get caught. Put it out. And then pull it off real quick.
Make sure that somebody like the Atlantic. Atlantic. Are you at any point -- is anyone in the media, ever going to be -- are you ever going to be offended, that they think you're so dumb, and they used you as a front?
Or at some point, I have to assume, you were part of it. Because they've lied to you so many times, a normal human being would go, okay. I'm not listening to you anymore.
And, in fact, I'm going to expose you. Because you told me this. I put my reputation on the line.
And you were lying. And you knew that they were lying.
I'm not listening to you anymore.
But they keep listening. They keep listening. Don't listen to these so-called experts. What is happening to our children, right now, is dangerous. It is confusing our children. Our children are innocent.
They are ripping the innocence away from our children!
And you know what really frustrates me so much. I think about this almost all the time. Almost all the time. I'll be off doing something else. And I'll see something, or news will come in. Or whatever.
And almost always, the first time is, what the hell happened to people?
What happened to people?
Where are they?
Well, what -- why don't they see this? Why won't they see this?
Why do they refuse to open their eyes?
Is it because you're afraid? If you open up your eyes, it will mean that you have to open up your mouth. And you're afraid of losing your job in
It will be the greatest thing you've ever done, mark my words. To lose your job, because you stand for the truth.
It will be the greatest thing. Have no fear.
Have no fear.
Or is it because if you admit to yourself now, that it was wrong, you've yelled at so many people, and condemned so many people, that you don't think that you can be forgiven by those people?
Or maybe you don't want to admit you're wrong. I don't know what it is. But those are all lies. Whatever that is, that's lies.
The truth will set you free. But do we even recognize the truth anymore?
Do you know 1998 -- 1998 when they took a poll and said, what's an important attribute to an American? To be an American?
Seventy percent said, patriotism. The love of country.
There's nothing wrong with the love of country. In 2019, they had whittled that away to 61 percent. But that's 1998 to 2019, 70 to 61 percent. Loss of nine points.
From 2019, to today, we've gone from 61 to 38 percent. 38 percent.
GLENN: Same time period. Religion.
Important as an attribute to America. Religion.
Sixty-two percent in '98. Forty-eight percent in '90. And 39 percent today.
Having children, 59 percent in 1998. Now 43. I'm sorry. 2019. Forty-three.
Now it's 30 percent. Only 30 percent of people think that having children is important. Let me tell you something, I didn't want to have children. Gee, how many times have you heard me say that?
I didn't want children. When I first got married. I didn't want any children. I had two children.
Then I got divorced, and then I got married again. And she wanted to have children. And I said, I don't want to have children. I already have two children. I don't want more children.
I have two children. Do you know, it takes -- it takes years to be able to get wisdom like this. There is nothing more important in my life than my children. It is the only thing that gives me true joy is my children and my family. It's what we were sent here to do, to have children and cherish them and raise them.
And now 30 percent -- 30 percent -- what the hell is happening -- what is not happening to your country. What is happening to you as a human being? What is more important, than the family? Is it your job?
Do you think -- I mean, maybe Americans just don't ask this question anymore. Why was I sent here?
What is my purpose? Was my purpose of life, to get a good job and to buy a car and have a house in a certain neighborhood?
Is that the meaning of my life? What a colossal waste of time.
How meaningless is that. Was -- is the meaning of my life, to just sit here and endure all things. Just to endure them and just say, I'm not saying anything about it. I don't care what they do to me.
I don't care. I just don't want to be -- I don't want to be -- you know, pointed out, as an oddball.
Jeez. And, by the way, important American attribute, 1998, 31 percent said money.
In '19, 41 percent said money. Today, 43 percent say money.
Glenn’s POWERFUL Nashville tragedy message: THIS is the way out
We have a truth problem, Glenn says, and the most recent tragedy at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, shows just how dangerous that problem has become. So what’s causing this? Why have tragedies like this one become so commonplace? ‘It is the loss of the gold guards of our civilization,’ Glenn explains. But there IS a path forward. In this powerful message, Glenn explains ‘the way out’: Remembering our principles
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Well, we had yet another tragic school shooting. And so I want to start the program where we have started too often. Our hearts break for the victims and their families, and the entire community affected by this senseless act of violence.
I'm a parent. Now, I'm a concerned citizen.
All of us fear for the safety of our children and our loved ones.
We share the same goal of creating a safe and secure environment for everyone.
But especially in the places of learning and growth.
It is natural for all of us to feel anger and fear during these times.
And it may seem unnatural to rise above it, put we must. Because it's essential to remember that we have to come together as a society. We must come together and address the root causes of violence.
And it's not the gun. But rather, the misuse of them, by individuals who are mentally ill or have a criminal intent.
I for one, want to address the problem of gun violence. I am worried about this with my own children. Every American, I don't care who you voted for, feels the same. But enough is enough.
When will we address mental health? Do you know the damage that we have done to our children, just because of COVID?
The damage to their mental health. Look at the suicide rate!
What is causing all of this? It is the loss of the old guards of our civilization.
There are a few areas, I think we need to address. First, the parents and families.
I'm sorry. We love you. Our society is sick.
It is sick. And unrecognizable to most of us. Your loved ones have paid the ultimate price for that illness.
And I say, I'm sorry, because I'm part of the society that has an unwillingness to see the truth, apparently.
To the mother of the 27-year-old shooter, I've read your old posts. You've been fighting against guns in school. While we disagree, we both want this violence to end. And I've read your posts about your children, and how proud you are. And the moments of beauty. You feel like every mom and dad feels about their child. And you were right to feel that way.
Today, how confused you must be. You should know, we love you too. You lost a child as well.
You lost a child to the same society that has an unwillingness to see the truth. But you should also know, you are part of our community. And we mourn with you as well.
Now, to the political class and the media elites, you have been dividing us for years.
At first, I think I was a part of that. I've tried really hard not to be.
But you're not sincere in anything you do. I don't know. At first, maybe you saw -- maybe you thought you were right.
And then every time society proved you wrong, you just dug your heels in. Now, I don't know.
Is it just a win over your opponent. Is it just crush the other side?
Is it because you -- you believe that everyone who doesn't vote your way is evil. Or is it that you just no longer care?
I'm one American. Among, I think many, that no longer believe in you.
I can understand why thinking people vote differently than me. I can.
And those people aren't the problem. The problem begins with the people, that only care about money or power. Or so arrogant, that they think they know better than the rest of us, and they make themselves or their system, into a false God.
The arrogance. I go after the disaffected, the weak, and the hopeless. And you prey on these things, promising to be their savior.
If they will only help you gain power of -- over those who you call their enemies.
You have lied. You have lied through half-truths. You have lied through omission. You have lied through fabrications. You have distorted the truth, to where it's no longer recognizable.
You call men women, and women men.
In your world, our children are legally children, until 25 for insurance purposes. Yet, adult enough to alter their own bodies at eight.
You have called evil good, and good evil.
We do not have a gun problem in America. Per capita, there were more guns 100 years ago, than there are right now. They didn't have these problems. Is it the gun, or is it the people?
What we have in America is a truth problem. We have turned ourselves inside out. We have turned ourselves against the basic principles that gave us life and freedom.
Earmarks and the promise of a fuller life. Our women have no more children, and our men have lost all meaning, reason, and faith.
From the beginning of time, as Kipling noticed. You promised us perpetual peace. You swore, if we just give you our weapons, that the wars of the tribe would cease.
But we know, if you disarm us, you'll sell us and deliver us bound to our foe.
You know, just yesterday, the Wall Street Journal released a poll that showed, what American principles we value most.
Children, God, family. They were last in the list.
Money was in the top three. Money? Since when has money become a principle? I guess. I guess since money is the god that so many worship. Money over principles, every time a corrupt bank is bailed out. Money over principles, any time we make those who never want to pay their school tuition. Every time we make someone pay for that tuition, that didn't go to school, I guess it's money over principles. What kind of god do we worship, that make children flawed? And the gods in the surgical gowns can mutilate and sterilize them, to make them just the way they were intended.
That's an ancient god that I don't recognize. We all know the words that it were written.
In the summer of 1776.
We hold these truths. But other words, were written later that year. When things weren't so sunny. It was December 21st.
These are the times that try men's souls. That turned our nation around. These are the times that try men's souls. And the modern day patriots, the lovers of truth and justice. Justice for all!
All men -- all women. And, yes, we can define that. We must stand firm in the face of an ever growing storm of disinformation, scored, division.
The weak hearted are not going to be able to weather the storm. But those with the courage to fight for what is true. Will emerge victorious.
We live in a time when you're faith in institutions, our faith in everything we know, where our very ten months. Our republic is under siege.
The way out is to remember the principles. We are drowning in a sea of lies. Cling to the life raft! Cling to the enduring belief in life and liberty.
Truth and justice. We'll only be able to find our way out, if we can rekindle the flame of unity. And embrace the American spirit, that carried us through so many crisis before. We've been here before.
But this time, our American crisis, we have to constantly remind ourselves that it's not an external enemy that we conquer. But the internal divisions that are threatening to tear us apart. And those divisions that are created by monsters of men.
Who are not just tearing us apart individual to individual, but tearing us and our children out from the inside out.
America, it is high time to refer -- reaffirm our commitment to our values that define us as a people. It is our collective responsibility, as free people, to stand up for those principles of truth.
The seeds of division, have been sewn by those who seek to manipulate and exploit us for their own gain.
They shatter our trust in one another.
To instill fear and hatred, where there should be understanding and compassion.
Truth is now clouded by conspiracy. The lines between fact and fiction have been blurred.
Truth is a light. Everything we face is not insurmountable. But now is the time, to return to truth and decency and justice for all.
Our kids are the ones who are going to pay the highest of prices for what we do now.
