Glenn wants to know why some Americans continue to trust U.S. leaders in power who have destroyed so much over the last two years. For example, President Biden already has proven to the world his foreign policy inadequacies. But now, it’s getting even WORSE. In this clip, Glenn details recent ways America's far-left leadership is putting us ALL in danger with AWFUL foreign policy decisions. From rocky relationships with China and Saudi Arabia, to Putin and Russia, our leaders are putting us ALL at risk, Glenn says.

GLENN: So yesterday, if you remember, my head was going to explode, because why are we allowing California to dictate everything to the rest of the nation? Okay. Remember?
They want to do that. Okay. Let them feel the full consequence. Why are they dragging us along with it? Yeah.
Today, my question is this: Why do we keep listening to people who got us into the same situation. Why are we listening?
Here's Janet Yellen yesterday, on our economy.
VOICE: We still the inactive covid in China and the slowdown in Chinese growth.
VOICE: And with high inflation and tightening monetary policy in many advanced countries.
GLENN: Yeah. Like ours.
VOICE: Emerging markets from all of these factors are suffering many stresses. So there's a lot to talk about. But from the perspective of the United States, I think the United States is doing very well.
GLENN: Wow. We're doing very well. Other countries have high inflation, tight money. Their central banks are tightening the money fly. Which is driving interest rates up. And they're having supply problems. But us, no, I think we're doing really -- why are we listening to her? Why are we listening?
Now, let's go to the genius, that is actually behind the wheel, driving this car, over the cliff. Our president. What does he think about what's coming economically?
VOICE: Should the American people prepare for a recession?
VOICE: No. They've been saying this every six months, they've been saying this. Every six months they look down the next six months and say what's going to happen. It hasn't happened yet. There is no -- there's no guarantee, that they're -- I don't think there will be a recession. If there is, there will be a slight recession. That is, we'll move down slightly.
GLENN: Okay. All right.
Now, maybe perhaps, I want to give him the benefit of the doubt. Maybe. Because there is one industry, that has just -- I mean, has -- has made so much money. Hand over fist.
It is such a growing industry, that maybe he's thinking, well, you know, GDP is threatened by the fentanyl and human trafficking industry. Jobs. It's not hard to find a job there.
You're willing to human traffic people, because of the border? Don't worry.
STU: Here, an Eastern European hooker, his son has really helped to keep that economy going.
GLENN: Right. Right. Just because -- this is according to the Department of Homeland Security. Just because of what we have done on the border, there's only been a 500 percent increase in human smuggling. So, you know --
STU: Increase, that's good, right?
GLENN: That's good. America is doing really --
STU: We're number one.
GLENN: Now, I want to talk about those ear countries, that are having some problems. With loans becoming more expensive. Threatening jobs. Trouble with their oil and gas prices. High interest rates, and high inflation.
Unlike us. Unlike us. We're good. But let me talk about those countries. Top diplomat in the European Union Ambassador's Annual Conference says, that Europe has been decoupled, due to multiple black swan events. It says that it can no longer count on Russia for cheap gas and oil.
China, they were depending on cheap goods. And the United States, they depended on the United States, for security. And now they've lost all three. And, you know, now they're going to have to completely reimagine. Completely reimagine, how do you Europe has put together. Because it's broken. And they're not going to be able to do anything about it. They'll just have to reimagine high everything works. They're looking at now, an era of volatility, which is great. But, you know, the thing that I really like is, he said, you know, the United States and Europe had a fantastic relationship.
And we were cooperating a lot. And that situation, might change now. But I urge you to think, what would have happened, if instead of Joe Biden, this would have happened with Donald Trump or someone like him in the White House.
It wouldn't have happened with him in the White House. He was warning you of these things. And you laughed at him. But don't worry about it.
Because we're fine, according to Janet -- we're doing really -- I think we're on the upswing. We're doing really, really well.
Now, let's see, I want to count the enemies here. We're in a proxy war with Russia, right?
We're -- we're fighting with Ukraine. Which I think we're really all we're doing is laundering money through Ukraine.
We haven't made China too happy. Lately. But we also have had a very long ally. Saudi Arabia. Which I don't want to be tied to. Donald Trump was fixing that.
But then our -- our president, he got a little spicy with the -- with the sultan, or the prince over there.
And said, this guy is a thug and a criminal. And he has no place at the table. And I'm going to take care of him when I get in. So now, the president went over, and he said, hey. Can you guys maybe up the -- you know.
And they agreed, as he left. They agreed to 200,000 barrels. Which is nothing. 200,000 barrels.
And then the White House wrote a missive to the princess. You just broke your word to the president. What are you doing? You said 200. Now you're going to reduce it to 100. That kind of pissed the prince off. So he's like, yeah. You know what, I'll reduce it even more than that. Okay?
So they went -- the people who were there at the meeting, said that he was asking for oil. And he was asking, you know, just can you just boost it up a bit.
What's better, he was saying, and if you have to cut it, can you wait until after the election? That way, he could convince everybody, that we're on the move. Everything is good. And your gas prices are down. And then OPEC could lower the production of I'll. And then after you've made a decision of which side you trust to tell you the truth and help you along. Then after the election, then he can say, oh, my gosh. Look at what these evil Saudis are doing. Now, the president has come out and said, we didn't even talk about oil. Really? You didn't? Huh.
Because everybody that was in the meeting, says you talked about oil. But, no. You didn't.
And also, it was ridiculous, that we were going to reevaluate the relationship, if we cut the oil. Cut the oil.
The president who has on TV, that very day, has said, I think we need to reevaluate our relationship. So this is really good. Biden has now warned of consequences for Saudi Arabia. He vowed to hold Saudi Arabia accountable. He said, I'm not going to get into what I consider. And what I have in mind. But there will be consequences.
Good. Okay. All right. Well, you know, why not?
Why not throw that log on the fire? Oh, by the way, the other reason Saudi Arabia is so pissed of us, because of Joe Biden, is because he's making a deal with their mortal enemy, Iran.
So we have that going for us. So let's pick another fight there. Here's another fight we just picked too. You're going to love this.
We have decided to start all exports of our chips to China. Yeah. Yeah.
So the U.S. Department of Commerce introduced sweeping rules aimed at cutting China off, from obtaining or manufacturing key chips and components for supercomputers.
This is quoting, seen as a huge escalation. Huge escalation, in the tensions between Beijing and Washington.
America argues, that such advanced semi conductors can be used by China for advanced capabilities.
Do you think so? Quoting, the cofounder of the center for innovating the future.
There is no going back to the way things were. With the latest action, the chasm between the United States and China has now expanded to the point of no return.
This is great. So by cutting off the chips. Which I'm not arguing, we shouldn't be sending them stuff.
But right now, you know, might be kind of a dicey time to do it.
Now we're forcing them to have to take Taiwan. Because Taiwan is the maker of all of the most sophisticated chips.
In fact, I think they make 80 percent of the chips. So that's going to be really good, if they march into Taiwan. Because then guess who doesn't have any computer chips, yeah, us.
Oh, this is good. Oh, by the way. Last night, also, Biden doubled down on the warning of nuclear Armageddon.
Yesterday, he said it again, you know.
I don't think Putin will use a nuclear weapon. But, I mean, it could be nuclear Armageddon, if he does. Oh. Okay. That makes -- that makes it -- that makes it a much more acceptable and soothing, really to hear that news. Oh. And they also announced yesterday, that NATO is going to hold a nuclear deterrence exercise. Now, this is great. Have you ever heard of operation Able Archer? This is a great story. Don't worry, this was in our past. Able Archer was something we did every year. You know, right there on the border with Russia. We did it with NATO. It was a NATO nuclear deterrence test. And I'm going to take you way, way back to 1983.
Because what we did, we held this annual, every year we did it, annual exercise. And we had 100,000 personnel over there. 16,000 of which were flown in from the United States. And the exercise was to simulate, what are you going to do, if someone launches a nuke?
Now, the Soviet Union knew, this was just an exercise that we did every year. But Reagan had been a little spicy. Calling them a terrorist organization.
Saying, that they were an evil empire. And so they no longer trusted the United States, at all. Because they knew Ronald Reagan wanted them to collapse.
So what they did is they -- they had these new things called computers. And these computer programs, started to track. You know, they were there in Russia. And they were very sophisticated.
Russia had only the best computers. And the best software, programmers. And so as they were doing this, what happened was, it looked like we had launched a bunch of missiles on their computers.
And they were convinced, we launched a bunch of missiles.
It wasn't just the computer.
And they had, during the whole operation, they had all their planes out. With ten-minute warnings. And they had loaded all of their missiles. They had also taken all of their missiles out of the protected shelters.
Opened up the blast doors. They were ready to launch.
If it wasn't for the little red phone, hey. Call me.
We probably all would have been vaporized. But that has -- that maneuver, you know, the -- where they're -- where they're just trying to just have a military, you know, exercise. You know, that is just to see what we would do, if the Soviet Union would launch a nuclear deterrent. You know what would our deterrent be? What would we do?
You know, NATO got together. We did it every year. We haven't done it in a long time. But NATO has decided with the United States. Now is the time to try that again.
You know, because the trust is so high. These people are going to get us killed. Ever been in a situation like, I don't know.
You're driving. Incredible -- no. I got it. And he's swerving all around the world. And you're like, good God, we're going to die.
It's fine! I drive all the time. And I'm not drunk. That's when somebody says, stop the car. What are you talking about? We're almost home. In three minutes we'll be there. Stop the car. I'm either driving, or I'm getting out.
I wish we could get out. But we can't. What we can do is elect a new driver. You know, one that shouldn't have his license taken away. What do you say we do that, kids, in just a few weeks?
Hmm. We vote. Because all of his drunk friends are in the car too, going, hey. Shut up. He's fine. He's totally fine. Do you see what's happening? He's totally fine. Leave him alone. Let's get the friends out of the car. So then we can actually talk to the driver and see, hey, can you walk a straight line, dude?
Because you're going to get us all killed.
