A good guy with a gun stopped the Calfornia Synagogue shooter in his tracks

In another anti-Semitic attack, a woman died taking a bullet for her spiritual leader. The damage could have been much worse however, had a good guy with a gun not been there to put a stop to it. Watch this clip to hear all the details.


The HUGE price spikes between Trump’s America and Biden’s

Inflation is surging, and more and more Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. In fact, 61 PERCENT of Americans now are relying on paychecks to live. This is why President Biden’s approval rating is so low, Glenn says. Because he refuses to accept and acknowledge what Americans currently are going through. And they’ve gone through a LOT in just the past two years alone. In this clip, Glenn takes a look at prices, numbers, and statistics — like grocery prices, gas, and illegal migrant crossings — from June 2020 under Trump to June 2021 and 2022 under Biden. And this HUGE spikes show we’re practically living in a completely different America.

GLENN: Inflation is surging. More and more Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. 157 million adults. That is 61 percent of Americans, as of June, this number is up from 58 percent in May. A year ago, it was 55. But 61 percent of Americans now are living paycheck to paycheck. You disrupt anything, and they go under. That's the reality, that Biden. His -- his approval rating is so low. Not just because everything he's doing is leading to more misery. His approval rating is so low, because he refuses to recognize the truth. Every time, he says, we're not in a recession or inflation is just transitory. People stop listening to everything else he says. Because their experience. Their day to day experience is telling them differently. Now, as we are looking at inflation. And I mean incredible inflation. Let me just take you from June 2020.

To last year, at this time. To June 2022. Listen to this. Average gas price, when Trump was in office, $2.17, June 2020. Huh. June 2021, 3.15. That's after Biden comes to office. It's now the average of 4.82. So you're looking at more than a 2-dollar increase. Inflation rate, when Bush -- or, I'm sorry. When Trump was in office in June 2020, the inflation rate was .6 percent. The first year, June 2021, under Biden, it was 5.4. He said it was transitory. It is now 9.2.

It is transitory. That number is changing. It's just going in the wrong direction. Covid cases, seven-day average. Under Trump in June 2020. It was 22,433. In June 2021, last year, he brought it down to 11,756. Now that we're all vaccinated, in June 2022, the covid case's seven-day average is 106,757. The death rate has just gone down. Illegal border encounters. Under Trump at June 2020, it was 363,619 coming across our border illegally. In June 2021, just a few months in. That number under Biden went from 363 to 871,453. That number, this last June is now 1,478,977. You are 1.1 million more illegals coming in, June to June. Total consumer debt. Total consumer debt, in 2020, June 2020, it was negative .3 percent. After Biden gets into office, total consumer debt, because remember, you had so much money. You didn't know to do with it. Total consumer debt, was 4.2 percent. Today, total consumer debt, is 14 percent. This is a real problem. We're going in the wrong direction. This is why, the government is buying ammunition. They're trying to take away your guns. They're going and trying to get from the holster manufacturers, for some reason. Who has a holster in who doesn't have a holster? And why it is so important today, that you call to have Kyrsten Sinema's number. Her number in Washington, DC, or in Arizona. And beg her. She has been good and strong so far. But all of the pressures of hell are going to be coming down on her. They will make a deal, that only the devil could make. To get this bill. This climate tax bill, passed. Manchin has already folded. Sinema is the only one. And the Democrats are freaking out. Because she hasn't said anything about it. But I can guarantee you, they are trying to make a deal. And cut it. I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if all of a sudden, the government said, you know, after some studies. We think the Phoenix, Tucson area should just be domed and fully air-conditioned. We're going to call it the Sinema dome. Uh-huh.

They will cut any deal. Because they need every single of the 50 members of the Senate Democratic caucus to pass it. They've got to have every single one on board. One of them peels away, and that one will be Kyrsten Sinema. One of them peels away, and you don't get the climate deal.

Pray for her. And call her office, and ask her kindly. Please, don't pass on this tax. Because that's what it is. This tax will be so crippling to America. And I -- I really need you to understand, exactly what is -- is happening here. When we look at inflation. When we look at inflation, what are they doing to us?

Well, they're driving down supply, while driving prices up. Okay? So let's just say -- let's use gasoline. Or ammunition. What's whapping with the supply of gasoline and ammunition? Well, it's getting fewer and fewer. Not because more and more people are buying it. Which is true. But more and more people are buying it, at extraordinary prices. You're buying gasoline, but you're buying it, begrudgingly, and you're probably cutting back on the miles. Meanwhile, what has the government done. They've taken the strategic oil supply. And they have sold it into the market, to China. Overseas! And here.

And it has made some impact. But that is short-term. Because there is no progress -- it's not like we're waiting for something to be fixed, and to be opened up. And supply us with more. This is a dwindling supply. And what are they doing? They're not only selling our strategic oil. Then he's promising to replace that strategic oil, by paying twice as much as Donald Trump did to fill that thing. Which will take the oil supply away from the general population. It will have the government then taking your tax dollars, or printing more money from the fed. And buying that, which will drive up inflation. And drive up the price. This is really important, to understand. Inflation, and now the Manchin bill, still in the Senate. Please call Kyrsten Sinema's office, put people over parties here. But the government is spending more on gas, concrete, steel pretty much everything they can. Driving those prices up. BlackRock, buying up houses. ESG, hedge funds, buying up trailer parks all across the country, and then passing a 100 percent rent increase on to these people. So their -- they're buying up houses, and paying over asking price to buy up entire neighborhoods. They're buying these neighborhoods up, and then what are they doing? They're not selling them for a profit. They're holding on to them, and collecting rent. This pounds you on the free market side. You can't afford things on the free market side, because the public/private partnerships with these ESG funds and these corporations, plus all of the money, that the government is spending. They're driving up the price. Then on top of it, they're taxing you, which takes more of your money. And then they have the hidden tax, without representation of inflation. So in the end, the public/private partnerships with the government own everything. And you're left with nothing, but the hand that you have, that you now have to reach out and ask the government, please. Can you help my family? I need a handout.

You followed the rules your whole life. These people are breaking the rules every day, and they're getting away with it. And you're getting the shaft in the end. It is not too late, as long as you educate yourself on what's happening. And you speak out. The tide is coming in.

We little our boats couldn't float. The freedom boat couldn't float anymore. Because the tide is out. The tide is coming back in. But right now, is when we need everybody in boat. Because here's what happens. It's said over and over again. You know, hey, the government is not your dad. They're not our parent. Uncle Sam is not really your uncle. Well, that's more true than ever before. They treat us like children, and try to make all our decisions. Yes. But what you're -- what you're missing here. Is that it's not just that they're taking your right to make your own decisions. They're taking everything you have. So your only option is to come to them, or their public/private partnership. So you can rent or just live and eat, and I want to remind you, what every dad has always said. Every mother has always said. And you probably have said now to your children. Because it's true. I want you to remember as they treat us like children. And put us in the situation, where we have to have their care. I want you to remember, what was said to you, and you have said to your children. As long as you live under my roof. You will live and obey my rules.

That's why when the World Economic Forum and all the Build Back Better people tell you, it's going to be great. And you're not going to own anything. But you'll be happy. No, I will not. Because as long as I don't own it, then I live under somebody else's roof. My entire life will be under someone else's roof. And I have no intention of obeying those rules.


It’s SPOOKY how well these kids predicted the future

GLENN: Here's a clip from the BBC talking to children who are predicting the future, in the year 2000. Now, listen to this.

VOICE: I think it will be -- people will be regarded as more statistics, than actual people.

VOICE: Sort of all machines everywhere. Everyone doing everything for you.

VOICE: Computers are taking over now, and in the year 2000, there just won't be enough jobs to go down.


5 war possibilities for China, Taiwan, & U.S. involvement

China seems to be on the offensive, thanks to Nancy Pelosi’s pre-announced trip to Taiwan. Glenn and Jason Buttrill, chief researcher for The Glenn Beck Program, war-game five possible scenarios between the two Asian nations. They discuss whether or not the U.S. is ‘obligated’ to back Taiwan, and what America’s foreign policy strategy has been regarding this conflict for decades. Either way, Glenn says, the world continues to destabilize and NOW is the time to pray for our country.

GLENN: I'm 18 years old. I'm working at WPGC in Washington, DC. And I can see the light on top of the Washington monument. So I'm at ground zero. Ronald Reagan is in office. And there's something -- I don't remember what it was. But a confrontation with the Soviet Union. And it was really serious. And I remember keeping the door to the teletype in my studio open. Teletype is how we used to get the news. And it had bells on it. And a ten-bell event would be nuclear war. And I kept that propped open, so I could hear those bells and count the bells. And we got as high as I think six bells. And I would count them. Because I knew. And I thought, I'm at ground zero. This could be over in ten minutes. I haven't felt that way, really until this administration. You know, even after September 11th, I remember feeling on September 11th. Boy, I don't know what they're going to do. But it wasn't a fear of nuclear war or all out war, over the whole world. We're approaching that kind of -- of place. We now have -- do we have the live footage? This is -- they're tracking Nancy Pelosi's plane. We can show it to you. She's at about 10,000 feet. Headed towards Taiwan. She has avoided the restricted airspace over the South China Sea. However, China has just closed the airspace above the Taiwan strait. And they are -- they're at least flexing their muscles. If you look at what China is sending out, online. You are seeing military being moved. You have the aircraft carriers from China, moving out of their home ports. And headed towards Taiwan. I don't know what's going to happen. We have a guy who actually is, I mean, somewhat of kind of an expert on this area. Working for us. He's our chief researcher. And head writer for the Glenn Beck Program. Jason Buttrill. Hello, Jason. How are you?

JASON: Hey, Glenn. Doing good.

GLENN: So, Jason, help me out on -- how serious is this, with China, do you think?

JASON: I think it's very serious. Especially considering the symbolic meaning of Taiwan. Taiwan is very, very symbolic to the Chinese/Communist Party. This has been an issue since, you know, the communists took over, really. So this is probably one of the most crazy, ambiguous treaties we've ever had. The Taiwan relations act. The most ambiguous thing ever. Which makes Kirby's remarks yesterday, kind of odd to come out and say, we don't support independents so publicly. I mean, I've read the Taiwan relations act, cover to cover. The ambiguity. Just saying it's ambiguous is even an understatement. It's the equivalent of one of the most confusing Christopher Nolan movies. Take Inception. Take Interstellar. Take Tenants. And then have 30 different people try to describe what it actually means. I actually think it -- that's basically what we're talking about here.

GLENN: So this is -- Taiwan and China are at war with each other. It's a civil war. And it happened in the 1950s. So this has been going back and forth from the 1950s. But it is -- it's coming to a head, and that's because as China rises in power, they think the odds are that they can take the United States of America. I don't think that's possible yet. But I think we're maybe five years. Two to five years away from they believe actually being able to take Taiwan. And call our bluff. Or just fight the war. You think that's accurate?

JASON: No. Absolutely. China sees Taiwan like they see Hong Kong. When they made the deal with Hong Kong. They say, oh, China has no right to do this. It is supposed to be two systems in one country. Yeah, but it was in that agreement, that China would one day take control, and it would be one system. People usually leave that part out. They just decided to accelerate their plans. They see Taiwan as one China. And they believe it's rightfully theirs. And their plan is to always take it. They just don't have the military capabilities. Now, moving towards what we're seeing now. The thing that would always tip us off. And the in Taiwan relations act. We said, if you try to coerce militarily, to try to change Taiwan and take it. We will respond. And President Reagan, I believe in 1980, and 1982. Reassured after the 1972 Taiwan act. Reassured, hey. We're still giving you weapons. We're still coming to your definition. So this is a very, very old agreement that they had. And, yes, we will go and respond. But the thing that's always kept the things kind of open. And that we can see what's going on in the future. Is that it would take a tremendous Chinese military buildup, to be put in place, before we would -- the actual action. We would see it, the buildup. We would go and respond to it. What Pelosi has done. And let's put this into context. The Speaker of the House has just undermined her presidents -- in the same party. His foreign the policy. She's taken it on herself, to manipulate foreign policy. It's absolutely unprecedented. She has no right to do this. It's not under the duties of the Speaker of the House. But her actions are allowing this military buildup to happen. It's accelerating an already accelerated plan, that we've seen with China and Hong Kong.

GLENN: I tell you, it is truly frightening. And, by the way, the reason why Taiwan is important to the United States. Is if Taiwan falls, we then are pretty much out of Asia. The next country to fall would be New Zealand and Australia. And China would just overrun all of that hemisphere. And between Russia and China -- you know, that would be a very difficult match for us to even stand shoulder to shoulder with. Okay. So let me give you a couple of scenarios. And I want to hear what you think are the best scenarios. These are five different scenarios that have been put together by a Taiwanese based researcher. So the first one, minimalist approach. The people's army occupies Jemen or Matsu (phonetic) islands, as well as Taiwan's islands in the South China Sea. Maybe even the (inaudible) islands. They declare part or all of the Taiwan Strait, a no-go zone. They just did that. And they -- give it a no-go zone to all military shipping. This would be fairly easy, et cetera, et cetera. And it would not overcommit them. It would just be a step up. Scenario number two. Hybrid warfare. Some sort of partial naval and aerial blockade of Taiwan, intended to interfere with the economy.

Combined with stepped up harassments, such as direct flyovers, which they did last night while we were all sleeping. Incursions into maritime space, by China's military. They might also have cyber attacks, which they just did, about two hours before Pelosi's plane was taking off. Scenario number three. A serious attack, but no invasion. This would involve air and sea warfare. No boots on the ground. Full airline and Naval blockade. Protracted set of naval and aerial battles, designed to degrade Taiwan's military, combined with ballistic missile attacks on military targets. Scenario number four. A real, actual invasion. Scenario number five. Short of a nuclear attack, would be the worst case. Full air and sea blockade. Massive ballistic missile attacks on military targets. Cyber attack. Aggressive naval and ariel attacks. And boots on the ground. I don't think that one is even possible right now. But maybe it is. Which one -- or do you have another scenario that you think is more likely to come from this?

JASON: So to point out, I think every single one of those scenarios, would break the Taiwan Relations Act, which would require an American response. So if they're thinking about doing any of those, they're ready for war. Just really quick, if I could remember all of them. The first one, occupying some of those islands in the Air Defense Zone. We already -- occupying any of those islands, including the Pengu Islands. Those are part of the Peskador (phonetic) Islands, which is specifically named, in the Taiwan Relations Act, as part of Taiwan. So that's a huge -- that's a huge, you know -- we're getting involved, basically. If they do that.

GLENN: That is -- or that is a progressive way for China to do it. Where they're not taking all of it. They're just moving in. And then like Republicans always do. You just back up. Okay. Well, that's okay. Okay. Well, we'll get it on the next boat. That's a progressive tactic. And America would probably not go to war, over something like that. I would hope.

STU: Yeah. We should point out real quick, Nancy Pelosi has just landed in Taiwan. So that's -- just watched it live here. As it -- so whatever game is being played, is going to be played.

GLENN: So bizarre.

JASON: The other scenarios pretty much -- many of them involved economic hybrid warfare, or blockades. Economic hybrid warfare was not mentioned back then in the Taiwan relations act. I would put that in the same category as blockade. That's also mentioned. So if any of those things happen, we are then, according to the texts, obligated to respond. So we're responding anyway.

GLENN: If they pretty much do anything. Even the lightest, most minimal approach, they would be in violation of this act. Our treaty, if you will. And it puts us, you know, into action. And calls our bluff.

I am terrified what the Biden administration would do. Because the Biden administration is absolutely toothless. We have no allies. What we've done in Russia has only benefited Russia and hurt everyone else. I think these guys could overreact. And do something very provocative, that in the end, will just destroy us. What should be our response, Jason.

JASON: Oh, gosh. Likable I said, this is such a complicated issue. It's so -- I hate to use the word again, ambiguous. Let me just go to this point. I think that -- I don't think China will do any of those things. I think China will use this as an excuse to do a massive military buildup. That's what I think. And we already saw --

GLENN: Massive military exercise.

JASON: Massive military exercise. Oh, we're just going to position all these things here. We're going to put all these boats here. We're going to keep these aircraft carriers over here. That way, it puts us off balance on, we don't know how far we've escalated their time line. That's why I think, this is such a horrible -- not only dangerous, but horrible move by Nancy Pelosi in doing this. Is you -- you're bringing right to the surface, what we think we have ten years to plan for. Or prepare for. That's what I think will happen. I think we'll see a lot more military buildup in that area. It will be hard to know when they actually attack. Now, if they do any of those things. I think they're obligated to respond in some way. I'll leave it up to them. To decide, what is -- how to balance it all out. They're obviously not the ones right now, in charge to do that. But what -- we're signaling to everyone else in the region, that, hey, the time of you being able to count us. That's over now. So, yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: I will tell you, Jason, thank you so much for your analysis and, of course, we'll be watching it. And if you -- if you watch and see some things, let me know and tweet it out today. And Facebook post. Because this is something that is ongoing. Thank you, Jason. For your help. I will tell you, that now is the time to pray for your country. And let me just remind you. The Republicans always get the warmonger label. Let's just say that the Republicans have changing on war. We've learned our lessons, I think. And Donald Trump, the world was at peace. Look at how fast that has deteriorated. We could be at -- in a proxy war, with both Russia and China. By tomorrow! It's insanity.


WATCH: Pelosi fails like Biden, proves Congress is TOO OLD!

A recently resurfaced clip from November, 2021 shows Nancy Pelosi stumbling through a press conference nearly as badly as President Biden does. But it’s not just Nancy. In fact, this is the OLDEST group of politicians Washington D.C. has EVER seen, Glenn says. And even if politicians like Joe and Pelosi are too old to understand what’s going on or too old to communicate their thoughts eloquently, they still won’t leave. Why? Because they’re addicted to power, corruption, and money. That’s why it’s up to us to vote them out and SEND THEM HOME. It’s time we SHAME them into retirement, Glenn says.


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Speaking of that -- do we happen to have the Nancy Pelosi monologue that she tried to explain, the inflation bill?

PAT: Oh, so good.

STU: From November of 2021. It's incredible.

GLENN: Oh, is it November? I thought it was from this bill. I just want you to listen, and try to tell me, what she's talking about. When she's discussing a bill that is in negotiation and passing.

NANCY: We're sending stuff over to the Senate. Well, most of the product -- now, we may have that in the last day or so. And some of what we added is Senate, to the bill. Like a hearing. For -- excuse me. Bernie loves hearing mention -- just hearing the bill. So some have -- and then we had the family medical -- we figured, they're putting things in, then we can put something in. Even if Manchin doesn't like it. So -- so we're getting some...

PAT: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.

NANCY: Bird and privilege.

PAT: Bird and --

NANCY: I think most of them are getting scrum. Because privilege scrum is deadliest to a bill. Bird won't -- what's important, you have to take it out. But privilege, by relation, can take you out.

PAT: Sure.

NANCY: So we're, again, getting that as we go along as well. But when they pass the bill, they will see it in its aggregate and make some --

VOICE: Any of this is messaging because they have to take some of those things off, regardless of what you sent over. You said, they weren't going to send a messaging bill.

VOICE: No, no. When I send a messaging bill -- but we'll make sure what we send is not birdable or birdbath, or privilege scrum.

PAT: Or privilege scrum.

NANCY: Exercises. In case...

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Could we just play the 10-year-old again from the BBC?

VOICE: I think it will -- people will be regarding more statistics than us as actual people.

GLENN: Wow. Now, either Nancy Pelosi is drinking, which has always been the rumor. She's either hammered. It's Nancy. It's hammer time.

She's either drinking or she is losing it. And I'm not sure -- I'm not sure which -- which it is, honestly. These guys, that are in Congress. This is the oldest Congress. The oldest representation, that we've ever had. There's never been a group of people, at this age.

PAT: Hmm.

GLENN: Serving in Washington, DC. The age of the administration. The age of Congress. The age of Senate. Go home.

GLENN: Go home.

PAT: There's not --

GLENN: You know, it's incredible to me.

PAT: There's got to be a rule, right? There's got to be an age limit. Not only do I agree with term limits. But I really think there should be an age limit. Because so many of these people, are startings to be significantly compromised. Nancy Pelosi is one of them. Joe Biden obviously is another. You've got two of the three most powerful people in the world, who are seriously compromised right now, and we're not doing anything about it.

GLENN: Well, I will tell you, that, you know, the average life span was in its 30s, when we wrote the Constitution. That was -- I mean, Ben Franklin was probably double the age of the average -- the average American.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And how old was he when he died, 70?

PAT: I think late 70s.

GLENN: Okay. Late 70s. I remember my grandfather's era. You know, people. When they started Social Security. It's because the average age, a man died, was 61. So they made it at 65, so most people would not get Social Security. Buts at least you would have it, in case you're an outlier. Well, now people are living until 80 or 90 years old. And some people are great. You know, we both know a heart surgeon, that is no longer practicing heart surgery, but, you know, he's running a global organization. And the guy is 90 -- Pat, 91, 94? And he is --

PAT: Uh-huh. Even older than that, I think.

GLENN: And he's sharper than I am. He's sharper than I am. So I hate to say, you have an age limit. But you should have common sense and decency, and your family should have common decency. We all know when our -- when our parents and grandparents are just not as strong as they used to be. And we certainly know, when they're just incapable of doing things. These people, if they had to drive themselves, I would bet you, a lot of the people in Congress, that are of her age, would have their keys taken away from them. But they don't drive anymore.

PAT: Yep. Looks like Franklin was 84 when he died.

GLENN: Eighty-four.

PAT: Eighty-four.

GLENN: And he was at the constitutional convention.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: He was still brokering deals. He was in a great deal of pain at the time. But he wouldn't take morphine, because he said -- or opium, he said, because it would addle your brain. And he wanted to remain sharp.

STU: Is one of the things you're talking about with the age thing. A bigger issue with just the size and scope of government. Because in theory, voters are -- the reason why Nancy Pelosi is in our lives, is because the representatives of some blue district keep voting her in. They have the opportunity to keep someone younger and more coherent. They just choose not to.

GLENN: Correct. Correct.

STU: Which is not necessarily, I don't think against what the Founders, wanted. Right? They didn't care if individual districts made business address decisions. I mean, they wanted them to make good decisions. But if an individual district selects as their representative, someone who the rest of the country doesn't like. That's in theory, fine. The problem is, these people wind up running our lives. If they didn't have all this power, when they got to Washington, this wouldn't be a problem. It becomes a problem for everyone, because Nancy Pelosi has so much of an effect on her day-to-day lives. And she is obviously either drunk or incoherent all the time.

GLENN: Correct.

PAT: And they thought that the -- that the election process would preclude lifetime terms for these people. I don't think they envisioned somebody being elected, you know, 30 times in Congress. I mean, come on. Been there for 60 years.

GLENN: No. Because it was such a pain in the ass. That's why they put Washington where it is. It was a swamp. It was mosquito ridden. It was at a time, when you could get malaria from mosquitoes. So they knew that nobody wanted to go. And it wasn't a full-time job. You had other full-time jobs. So you were like, let's get the business done. I have to go back to work. So they would only meet for a couple of months every year. So it wasn't the way it is now. Also, I go back to America the Beautiful. One of my favorite lines is more than self, their country loved.

Joe Biden does not care. He is building a Biden empire. And a Biden cash machine. And I really don't think he loves the country more than himself. And that is the case with a lot of these people. And they've -- they may look at you, and say, how dare you say that. But they've convinced themselves, that that is true. And they've said, well, if I'm not doing it, who would. We've got to change the country. We've got to do this. But they're enriching themselves. This is so corrupt. Nancy Pelosi is so corrupt. Joe Biden is so corrupt. You really think they care about you, and your community? If you're struggling? I.e. the -- the new bill that just was passed to reduce inflation, that was going to do going to do anything, but. And it's a tax that begins at 30,000. So you're making $30,000 a year. Next year, your taxes are going up. Is that more than self, their country loved?

Nancy Pelosi announcing she's going to Taiwan. When we don't do that. You can go to Taiwan. But you don't, in her position announce it weeks ahead. You say, I'm going on an Asian tour. And then quietly you go. And then when you're done, you announce it as you're leaving. That's the way we always do it. But she doesn't love the country, as much as she loves herself. Or she was drunk. Or she's just incompetent. Which one is the best? These people should be shamed into retirement. Shame on you, for being -- you're not clear enough. I know if I'm not clear enough, I would never come on the air, because it would be irresponsible of me. They don't seem to care about it. The question is, why? And then the real important question is, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to continue to vote for -- I don't care if it's for Republican, independent. I don't care if it's the guy I absolutely love. If Mike Lee, for instance, is starting to slip, I would say be the first one to say, you know, Mike. I don't want to lose this seat. But you've got to go. You've got to let somebody else that understands at least today's world and is thinking about that. Is not just thinking about trying to make it through a speech.
