If there’s one thing today’s far-left are good at, it’s using human tragedy for political opportunity. And even before Hurricane Ian made landfall, that’s actually what some Democrats decided to do. From Biden urging Floridians to get vaccinated, to the mainstream media’s onslaught against Governor DeSantis, and potential plans to politicize FEMA, Glenn shows how political gain seems to be the left’s current strategy as this massive storm hits our Gulf Coast…
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: So Stu, how excited are you? Wow. Where do we even begin today?
Well, let's start with Joe Biden. Here's the advice for anybody in Florida. Really important advice yesterday, from Joe Biden.
BIDEN: Let me be clear. If you're in a state where hurricanes often strike, like Florida or the Gulf Coast or into Texas. A vital part of preparing for hurricane season, is to get vaccinated.
GLENN: Ah, yes. Yes. Yeah. Much more complicated.
BIDEN: A natural disaster hits.
STU: This is great news. We have a hurricane vaccine? I didn't even hear about that.
GLENN: Yeah. You just have to vote Democrat. That's it, you vote for a Democrat, and no hurricanes.
STU: That's it! Wow.
GLENN: So he's right there on the front lines for you, America. And, Florida, he's there for you. We got to make sure that they get vaccines, because it will be very complicated, you know, when we're pulling you in from, you know, the water or off the roof of your house. I mean, we'll send a helicopter. But have you been vaccinated?
STU: Have you ever had a vaccine underwater?
It's really difficult to administer.
GLENN: It's very difficult. Very difficult. That's why you should have had it. You red staters. That's why you should have had it. By the way, so far, the president hasn't cauldron DeSantis at all. Can you give us cut seven, please. Here's a FEMA official, saying. Wait a minute. Why haven't you called yet?
VOICE: Can you articulate how those determinations are made. And why -- and why it hasn't been made in this case, to have the president call the governor.
VOICE: Yeah. The president is very focused on making sure that the federal family has the right resources available to support this.
GLENN: Have you been vaccinated?
VOICE: We have a team of my senior leadership that are embedded with the governor to make sure that we're supporting that. Our focus today is making sure that we have the right measures in place to support the life-saving activities that need to happen. Any conversations afterwards, need to be -- see what the damage is done.
VOICE: But he's made conversations with the mayors. So is there any reason why not the governor?
VOICE: Again, we have a strong team that's in place, supporting the governor right now, working side by side with him and his staff. How are you working side by side, you haven't called him!
STU: I think they did eventually call him.
GLENN: Good. Good. Well, that's usually very low. I know when the fires and everything were happening. And that evil George Bush, who hates California.
He's like, whatever California needs, we're not going to supply it. In fact, I'm not even going to call and find out.
You know, I wish there was just one person we could call. Do you remember George Bush. It didn't matter what state. Even in Hurricane Katrina. He called and said, please, evacuate the city.
The Democratic leadership said, no. He didn't get vindictive about it. He was immediately there. And he even took the blame for all of it. Even though, he didn't deserve it. Same with the wildfires.
Where is Joe Biden? Have you been vaccinated?
All right. One other thing I want to bring to your attention. First of all, let me say this, and then we'll wrap that section up of Rick DeSantis. Ron DeSantis.
STU: Ron DeSantis.
GLENN: What you have to watch for here, is the media smearing Ron DeSantis. They're going to do everything they can, to make him look incompetent. They'll do everything they can, to make Florida look like a hellhole, that's just out of control. Guarantee it. Guarantee.
STU: Yeah. I mean, number one is obviously the concern about what's going on with the human life, and all the effects of the hurricane. But like, when you look at it from a national perspective. What we'll have here is a story over in the next few months. And actually in this case, the next few weeks. Is there are tons of people, starting with his opponent in the gubernatorial race. But also spreading to every government operative across the country. And every media operative across the country, who see Ron DeSantis as a real threat to Democratic power and have an opportunity here, whether true or not, to try to take him out, not in the 2024 election, but right now in the next few weeks. This is an election that is seven or eight points. Maybe five points in Florida. With DeSantis leading.
You know, if this goes poorly, and they can convince the American people. The people in the middle. Not the hard-core leftists. The people in the middle, who think that maybe Ron DeSantis does a terrible job managing this somehow. If they can convince him of this, they can take him out before this gubernatorial race, and then he's not a factor at all in 2024.
They see this as Democrats so often do. Human tragedy, they see as an opportunity.
GLENN: Well, I want to get into that here in a second. But, first, here's your opportunity to serve. Mercury One working with its partners. We are mobilizing on the ground with food, electrical support, communication support, and cleanup support.
We will be in first and out last. We need your help. Just go to mercuryone.org. And donate to our Disaster Relief Fund. We have many donors in Florida. Mercury One is there to help.
So please, if you can, donate now to mercuryone.org. And we will keep you up-to-date on the latest. And what we're doing. We're just waiting for it to come ashore. And then we'll spring into action. All right. The next thing I want you to know about is FEMA.
We found a paper. This is, oh, I don't know. Several years ago, this paper was written. He's a climate activist. And it proposes that FEMA could be weaponized to, into being reactionary to natural causes. It would be proactive. And it would operate as some sort of a green new deal enforcer. Well, we found this paper, and it says, quote, if the moment is seized, the current crisis and any renewed attention, it may bring to emergency management, can be an opportunity to recast it, as more vital and strategic component, of the future political landscape.
The paper laments that FEMA's previous restrictions when it comes to liberty, and their reluctance, to, quote, propose limitations on private property, end quote.
We were done with the talk of FEMA camps and Black Hawk helicopters.
No. You're not done with that. Let me put it back in here. For just a second.
This is The Great Reset. Now, have there been any changes at FEMA?
Well, yes. If you go to the FEMA dot-gov website, you'll see integrating sustainability into recovery. Now, it was updated July 22nd, 2020. So this is being set into motion at FEMA in the final months of the Trump administration.
But remember, there's no such thing as a Deep State. We have one of their guides, that is actually linked back to the Department of Energy, going green from the ground up. And the first section says it all: Quote, out of crisis, opportunity. And they're talking about FEMA going in, when there's been a horrible, horrible crisis. And the first question is: Why go green from the ground up?
Because we have the opportunity. And FEMA can lead the way. Saul Alinsky would be very proud. Identify a crisis. And if none exist, create one. And then rebuild society the way you want. Now, keep in mind, this is not from congressional committees. This is from a group of unelected Deep Staters. FEMA and the Department of Energy. As you scroll through the FEMA website, it looks pretty familiar, to stuff we've already seen someplace else.
In fact, it's a damn near carbon copy of the united nation's agenda 2030. The agenda for sustainable development. And their 17 sustainable goals are another carbon copy of what the Davos crew are saying in the World Economic Forum, and the great reset.
It's all the same. What they're significant is, if you actually like or need your high carbon footprint job. If you work in the oil and gas industry. Car industry. Coal industry. 95 percent of blue-collar worker, literally anything they don't like, it's too bad.
And the rebuilding of any city is going to come at a higher cost. Because they're just making it sustainable for the future.
To the new U.S. government bureaucratic great reset, liberty is a liability. As that FEMA academic paper stated. Private property is a limitation.
We'll keep our eye on FEMA, and hopefully they're bringing clean water, and then going home.
