Dave Rubin’s message for liberals: It’s DECISION TIME!

Dave Rubin has been working with liberals for years now…and some of them DO now recognize the far-left’s woke INSANITY. But recognition of the ‘obvious stuff’ may not be enough, the BlazeTV host tells Glenn: ‘At some point, the rubber meets the road and you need to make a decision…you have to make a choice.’ In this clip, Rubin encourages truth-seeking, freedom-loving Americans to ‘blaze a NEW trail,’ he explains. Because the far-left won’t stop until their dystopian nightmare comes true. So, it’s time to take ACTION and build new institutions that allow us to survive — and THRIVE — without far-left ideologues forcing our every move…

Rubin's new book — 'Don't Burn This Country' — explains all of this, plus more. It's available TODAY.

GLENN:Mr. Dave Rubin. How are you, sir?

DAVE: Glenn, I'm doing well. Although, I got to tell you, you're giving me inflation neighbors. I'm trying to move a book today. I need good inflation numbers. I have product to get out of the warehouse.

GLENN: You are going to do really well. You just have to charge $85 per book. Dave does have a new book out. It's called don't burn this country.

And, you know, in it, you say something interesting, that this is kind of -- this is your last chance to try to save liberals.

DAVE: Oh, yeah. This is it, man. I mean, you know my evolution well. And your audience is pretty familiar with it. And I've tried for the last say 7 years to really wake up the remaining liberals, and go, you know, do the obvious stuff first. The obvious stuff is, okay. The left has gone bananas. The woke stuff. And two plus two is five. And boys are girls. And non-racism is racism, all the stuff that you've been talking about. Enough of the liberals get that. But at some point, the rubber meets the road. At some point, you have to make a choice. You have to see that fork in the road and say, okay. I'm going to to have separate from some of my old ideas. Some of the old political leaders and political leaders I followed and blaze a new trail. I think that's what I've tried to do with my life. And really, this book is saying, hey, look, we're past the point of talking. We're past the point of just explaining that there's something wrong with the left.

But now we really have to build new things. We have to separate, in essence, from these people. Build parallel economies. Build new educational institutions. Build new networks.

Everything -- literally everything. And, I mean, literally literally. Literally everything that we have, we have to either rebuild or separate from these guys. Because they're not going to stop. You know, all that we've warned. For all the work that all of us have done. They're still not stopping. Sure, we're waking up people, but the march is on. So it's time to -- it's time to blaze a new trail.

GLENN: Okay. So what does that mean exactly?

DAVE: Well, it means a lot of things. I mean, first off, you really have to think of your life in a different way. I tell a story about an intern that I had about two years ago, who was a great kid. He was really crushing it. And I said to him, he was going to school, and helping us part-time.

And I pay all my interns, by the way. And I said to him, hey, listen, forget about school. You're killing it here. Let me hire you full-time. We pay all your benefits. Join us, and you've got a bright future ahead of you. We'll take good care of you. I know you'll make the show better. I know it will for me too. And he said, you know, Dave, I think I want to stick with college. I get it, I'm flattered.

Flash forward, a year later, where now I live in Florida as you know. I was living in Cali at the time.

He called me about three months ago, called me about three months ago. He said, Dave, I've had enough. Glenn, I don't like the Zoom schools. Nobody is learning anything here. We're being indoctrinated. My teachers are all activists. Does that offer still stand? And now he has a full-time job. He just moved to Florida. And he's flourishing. And I used that as an example.

Meaning, you don't have to go to $150,000 in debt, when you're 21 years old to get a marginal job that you most likely you didn't learn anything to get the job in the first place. That's one example. I think we have to figure out ways to get off the big tech rails. It's why TheBlaze is thriving. You years ago, saw the path of, oh, I can't be so reliant on the big boys. I have to build my own thing.

It's why I started Locals. There's all sorts of things. You know, you need to know how to do a few things. I think one of the real crises we're having right now is that the millennials don't know how to do anything. They don't know how to change a tire. They don't know how to raise a chicken. Or start a garden. Basic things. This stuff started simple. But we've become so reliant on these big systems. (?) and that if you just don't ask any questions. And if you're nice to the machine. They're nice back to you. After 15 days to slow the spread, I think they realized, they're never going to stop. They're coming. And until they realized (?) they will just keep moving on everything.

GLENN: Yeah. You talk about the difference between self-care and being self-reliant. And I can't tell you how important that is right now. All of us, need to learn certain things. If our kids don't know how to read a map, you better teach them how to read a map and have maps that they can read. Also in the book, you write, how to spot fake news. Can you take us through that?

DAVE: Yeah. There are many types of fake news. And we think of fake news as (?) another type of fake news we think about is when the headline has almost nothing to do with the story. Those are sort of the two big ones that are somewhat obvious. There are others (?) one of them, the best example, because it's relative to what's going on right now. This Hunter Biden laptop story. Which, right before the election, was not allowed to be on Twitter. Even the New York Post was a totally reputable (?), but you could not tweet about it. Not only could you not tweet about it. Glenn, as you know, you could not send the link to the story, in your private messages on Twitter. That means -- that means they were monitoring people's private messages, the private messages of even journalists. The, quote, unquote, journalists that were sending stories to each other. The type of fake news was the type of things that they won't let you see. And I'm far more interested to see about that, than the fake stuff. We've all done pretty good (?) very fine people on both sides. The Russian collusion hoax. (?) the coming kids are a racist. Everyone gets that. The internet has allowed us to some degree, to expose that. The bigger issue is the stuff that we can't quite see. We can't quite make sense of. You know, 51 former intelligence officials tell us that Hunter Biden laptop story is fake. And now the New York Times is even telling us that's real. (?)

GLENN: Not only that. But the fake news continues. They say, that's real. However, the president is not implicated in this at all, so they just moved the bar. And they still say kind of the same thing.

DAVE: Well, that's the extraordinary part. That's one way the machine. This is it is reason why I say these big systems. They're always playing a little bit of catchup. First, the story was completely a hoax. Then it was maybe it was true. But then it doesn't implicate Hunter in any way. Now (?) and I suspect, Glenn. That as more and more leaks from this thing. And we figure out, how Hunter got these jobs, that he was qualified for. I'm not a rocket scientist, or a biologist. Do you think it maybe had something to do with the fact that his tad had something to do with the presidency of the United States. May a crazy conspiracy theorist?

GLENN: Of course, you are. Of course, you are. Let me quote the book. And you expand. The collectivist left wants to strip you of the intrinsic (?), in fact, you'll get paid for it. You can watch porn and play video games all day. And when doing so. You're actually helping people. Attachment, yeah. What a twisted thing they put on all of us over the past couple of years. They got (?) and restaurants. We all know someone in our own life, whether it was us personally. Or a neighbor or a friend or cousin. Who had a business close. Someone who lost their jobs. The mom and pop (?) 70 percent of mom-and-pop stores closed during covid. For some reason, the Target. The big box (?) that was selling virtually the same stuff. They had to close.

These ridiculous, arbitrary rules. And then, of course, the way I relate it too collectivism. At the same time, they tell us, we must stay home. And you will kill grandma. And ordering food. Well, first of all, you're creating a class war. (?) these other people that have to wear masks to deliver your food. A huge class war problem there. But also then, the utter hypocrisy, that they threw in our face, when it was Black Lives Matter rallies. Suddenly Eric Garcetti. (?) or Lori light foot in Chicago. She had her kids in masks. They still may have some degree of kids in masks in Chicago. But for Black Lives Matter, she could be out there without a mask. Glenn, even the last couple of days. The ridiculous press conference, the chronic liar, Jen Psaki gave the other day. Where she was asked about Kamala Harris wearing masks indoors. And she said, well, she took it after this. Relating to Ketanji Brown Jackson. This was a historic moment. They lie about everything. While they take your rights and dignity away. And they throw it in your face. And we just have to say, enough is enough.

GLENN: You moved to California. Which is interesting to me. Because you talk about inclusiveness. And you talk about the importantness of being a good neighbor. Can you be a good neighbor in the wrong place?

DAVE: Oh, it was tough of it. It was really tough. I moved (?) I became professionally successful. Force my life was enriched in many, many ways. (?), but these last couple of years. And it really did start before covid. But then covid put it on steroids. You know, the societal breakdown. Because the individual is not separated from your politics. And vice-versa. Meaning, if you're watching the news every day, and you're completely fearful of everything and you're wearing masks all day and everything, you will be (?) beautiful 80 degrees every single day. Not a cloud in the sky. I would be walking my dog, with no mask on. Outdoors. And neighbors, I kid you not, would be running the other way. The degree that everybody would go to the supermarkets. And no one would look at each other. You have a mask on. (?) what do we think this will do to a generation of people? I have to tell you, going from California to (?) I've been here about three months. I feel like I'm in a completely different country. And I don't mean that to be. I'm not exaggerating when I say that. I generally feel like, I'm living in a place, where I'm in a completely different outlook on life. I go to the store. I'm smiling. (?) businesses are thriving. And as I said, it's not disconnected from politics. We have a governor here, who said, hey. I don't know everything going on with covid. But we will make decisions for themselves. And, by the way, occasionally, you see people in masks here. And that's their choice. That's fine. But the government does not dictate that everybody live under the boot. It's a much more refreshing way to live. It's like a weight lifted off my chest.

GLENN: I know. I know. (?) which you can find online or Blaze TV. He's got a new book out now, called don't burn this country. Surviving and thriving in our woke dystopia.

In our book, you have a great thought experiment in Plato's cafe. And I want you to take us through that in 60 seconds. Can you hang? Let me tell you about Kim. She said, I've been having Relief Factor. I've been taking it for about a month. It's hard to believe. But my back pain is gone. When I first heard about it, I thought, who could ever believe that?

I am now a full-fledged believer. This product was really a miracle for me. Thank you so much, Relief Factor. Kim, I know exactly how you feel. People all the time, say this. This is the way I felt. There's no way this stuff will work for me. It's all natural. There's no Dow Chemical in it. None. I mean, how is that helpful for you? It's not a drug. Developed (?) ibuprofen is only one way to attack inflammation. This has four different ways. All right. Three-week Quick Start. This is where the rubber meets the road. Try it. If it's not working for you. It's fine. Stop taking it. 19.95, to try it. Take it three times a day, as I do. For three weeks. Be faithful on it. See if it changes anything. If you see a difference in three weeks. Keep taking it. Because you'll start to really see. It will compound. If you don't see any difference in three weeks, stop taking it. 70 percent of the people who try it, go on to order more month after month. It's ReliefFactor.com.

Dave Rubin in's new book. I love this. (?) in a time of madness, don't even burn this country. It will give you the tools you need to think for yourself. I want you to walk into the bar and order a full-bodied opinion. I want you to get absolutely wasted on facts until 3:00 a.m. And then when you're just about to pass out, I want you to get another glass of reality and chug it.

I love that.

DAVE: Glenn, I know you don't drink anymore. But there's something there. There's something there.

GLENN: I love it. (?) Plato's cafe is.

DAVE: The basic idea of mate zero's cafe. And the reason why I use it as an example in this book. In the cafe. If you live in this cafe (?) when he originally wrote it. If you live in this cafe. Your perception. And you only live in a cafe. In the media vicinity of you. Your perception of reality will be extremely different than what actual reality is. And somehow, through social media. Through lockdowns. Through closing businesses. Social distancing. Eliminating the ways humans have communicated. 234 some ways, we're all (?) those of us trying to have difficult conversations. That are trying to build some bridges, instead of burning everything down. I think the challenge for us, is to get out of our cave. Glenn, guys like us. (?) to our audiences. And hopefully, they can incorporate some of that in our lives. And that's real. It's on everyone to do that, to whatever degree you can. Especially when you add in the big tech (?) where we don't have news is being catered to us. And what they're sending us. The feeds. What they're doing to our dopamine related to likes and clicks and all these things. In essence, we're all being pushed (?) our preconceived notions are the things that will matter. And we have to really step out of that cave. By the way, when I wrote this (?)

GLENN: Right. And you say, imagine a Civil War breaks out. Two groups. One who wants to conserve. One who wants to destroy.

DAVE: Looks. This is not a line that I want to (?) of a movement. Sort of separation between the red and blue states. And the problem is that, look, we're called the United States of America. We're supposed to be individual states. This is what the Federalist system is about, of course. And then we're supposed to be united in some form of commonality. Unfortunately, because the Democrat Party has gone so far off the deep end and taken the (?) in effect, you live in different countries. We have to figure out how to ash tries this situation. My suspicion is that the red states will continue to flourish. And with the blue states will continue to crumble. Now, the problem with that inherently, the red states will say, hey. We're doing it right. We're out of here. But the blue states will say, no. We want more of your tax money. (?) I think the red states, generally speaking, I'm not talking about like a true secession movement or something like that. But an ideological, hey, here's where I live, and this is what I care about. (?) more and more. But the irony, of course, is in many ways, this is (?) not supposed to have nearly as much power as it does.

GLENN: Dave, I'm so glad you're on our side.

DAVE: Glenn (?) I know you're not going to tooth your own horn. We're burning (?) on any category. Because you're still killing it, man. You're crushing it all over the place. The book has been out for two months.

GLENN: I appreciate. The name of the book is don't burn this country.

Make sure you grab it now, wherever books are sold. Dave is a remarkable guy. Started seven years ago. Questioning his own beliefs. And he is -- I think next year, he might get to a point to where, Genghis Khan, did not go far enough. I mean, he's really becoming a conservative warrior.

“I Knew They Were Lying”: Children’s Hospital Whistleblower Reveals FBI’s Threats

Is the FBI intimidating a whistleblower for exposing the reality behind a Texas hospital’s “gender affirming care” for children? That’s what the whistleblower, registered nurse Vanessa Sivadge, believes. She joins Glenn to explain why she spoke out against the Texas Children’s Hospital after reading about an anonymous whistleblower (Dr. Eithan Haim) in a report from Christopher Rufo, and how the Biden administration responded. The hospital, she says, was coercing and lying to parents so they would allow their children to receive transgender “treatments,” which would make them patients for life, and she had been asked to do things that went against her faith. But instead of caring about the children, the FBI wanted her help to unmask the first whistleblower. “It was very terrifying for me,” she tells Glenn. But she also emphasizes, “‘Do No Harm’ has to mean something…regardless of the consequences.”

"It Is By Design": What the Elites' "Class War" Did to YOUR Wealth

The household wealth of average Americans is disappearing while the government and top 1% elites are sucking it up like a giant vacuum. It’s the theft of a nation - an all-out class war - and the middle class is now on life support. Meanwhile, much of America is focused on culture wars that are meant to divide us and keep us distracted. So, Glenn exposes the even bigger threat that Americans are facing "by design": "You will own nothing, and you will like it." Plus, Glenn explains how it's all connected to China's increased purchasing of farmland and businesses in America and the Biden administration's attempt to sell parts of our National Parks.

The End of the Petrodollar: America vs Saudi Arabia battle EXPLAINED

There has been a lot of confusion lately about Saudi Arabia allegedly ending a 50-year-deal with the United States. The "deal" tied oil sales to the US dollar. But many have claimed that the deal never actually existed. So, what's really going on here and should Americans be worried? Financial expert Carol Roth joins Glenn to break it all down, including why she believes the United States and our Federal Reserve are really to blame for the petrodollar's destruction. Plus, Carol explains why the Biden administration can insist the economy has never been better, although our wallets can tell the opposite is true.

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Before we get to Carol, I want to give you some highlights from this Blaze media. And TheBlaze.com story.

Biden's phony numbers mask true economic pain. The official government numbers in the US economy have been contradictory and confusing for quite a while now.

What is clear upon closer examination, is that the federal government's overspending and overregulation are doing serious damage to the economy.

And we have yet to see the worst results of those policies.

The unemployment increase, seems to contradict recent signs that the economy has been weakening. In addition to the conflicting rise in unemployment. Other signs of deterioration. Include stagnant retail sales.

A slowing of consumer spending. Weak industrial product. Manufacturing orders. Increasing consumer debt.

Depressed by new housing starts. Falling annual earnings of full-time employees. And rising commodity prices. The Federal Reserve chairman, Jerome Powell, knitted, he believes the White House has been cooking the books.

This is the fed chair. Stating last week, you have payroll jobs, still coming in strong.

Even though, there's an argument, they may be a bit overstated. The only job growth, in the US, is for illegal aliens. Listen to that.

The only job growth in the US, are for those illegal aliens, who will work for below minimum wage. Which also explains why inflation hasn't spiked in the past year, as millions of illegal aliens were hired.

Legally resident American workers saw no job increase in the past year. And unlawful residents, willing to accept wages Americans can't are dragging everything down in the wage category.

With employment continues for American workers stagnant at best, the job market is another indicator that the economic growth is slowing, and the Federal Reserve should lower interest rates to reduce its suppression of economic activity.

However, they decided not to. Because it will -- it will spike inflation again.

The markets have already priced three expected interest rate reductions for the year.

However, suggesting a correction is in order.

Even so, the stock market stayed steady after the fed's interest rate announcement with the Dow falling slightly.

And the S&P 500 and NASDAQ, rising to new record highs.

Economist Robert Genetski. Genetski, calculates that the S&P 500 is currently overvalued by 34 percent.

If investors decide the market is near peak and start selling, taking their profits before prices, fall. There is more trouble.

This overspending continues from the federal government, as well.

In the first eight months of the current fiscal year, the current government has already accumulated more than $1.2 trillion, in additional debt.

With a staggering deficit of $348 billion last month alone.

Investors were reportedly believed the US economy is about to enjoy a significant expansion, because of AI.

That's boosting the stock markets. The shares in tech companies. Chip makers. And even utilities.

The government's stimulus injection may be waning, and the Fed's interest rate hikes are starting to bite, as indicated by the slowing housing and manufacturing production.

Higher interest rates hinder business from investing in production and consumers from spending on goods.

That support those businesses. Additionally, the Biden administration has implemented a regulatory program, that will directly cost the economy 3.95 trillion dollars in 2025.

And indirectly result in a staggering 75.05 trillion, in opportunity costs, for 2025, alone.

That might take a bite, no matter what AI is going to do.

Carol Roth is here with us.

Carol. Are we beginning to see all of the signs of the wheels coming off of this thing?

CAROL: I think we've been seeing the signs of the wheels coming off of this thing for quite some time.

And they're sort of hanging on by a thread.

Now, certainly, a lot of the numbers that are put forth. Are meant to window dress, and say, oh, no.

The wheels are still turning. And they're doing just fine. And they will last for a while.

We have seen cracks, and when you peel back the onion. And you look at things like the deficit to GDP, which are about two times the historic average at a time when they're telling us, there's an expansion. We know there's something wrong.

Because normally, when you have an expanding economy, that means you're taking in more revenue at the government level. And that means you're running less of a deficit because you have more money input.

What's happening now is the Biden administration has flipped that on their head. And they're using deficits to window dress the appearance, that we have growth.

And we're seeing that start to crack. Because even that, you know, window dressed growth is starting to come down.

We saw the first quarter GDP come in, almost a percentage point lower than expectations.

A first reading. The second reading was even lower.

So now, as of the second reading. We're at 1.3 percent. For the first quarter. And we're expecting a third reading.

And things keep getting revised and revised.

So all of the, you know, appearances that they're putting forth. And to make it seem like everything is looking great.

We've seen those cracks. And they're just becoming larger and larger.

GLENN: So do you think that there's any way possible, that anything, excuse the pun here, Trumps the economy.

I mean, they always say in elections.

You know, it's the economy, stupid.

And no matter how you window dress this.

Everyone knows, I don't have as much money, or my money doesn't go as far as it used to. And I'm having a hard time keeping up.

At almost every level, this is happening.

VOICE: So this is an interesting question.

There was a Monmouth poll, that came out yesterday.

That showed, far and away.

That the economy was the biggest issue.

You know, number one issue on people's minds.

But there's a disconnect by party. And obviously, when you have the -- the Republican side, and I would think to some extent. The independents as well.

There's more of a connection with the -- with the fiscal reality that's going on. And it becomes, you know, we believe so afford literally four more years of that.

There's a disconnect from the Democrats who don't believe in mass and reality anyway.

And so even though, they may be hurting, personally. They're going to make excuses. And say that it's for, you know, any sort of litany of other reasons. And it doesn't have anything to do with these specific policies, that we know have driven these outcomes.

You know, there's weather it's things like the American rescue plan. And they direct stimulus. That's literally called stimulus.

That overstimulated the economy. And caused inflation.

They're going to tell you, oh, no. Look, inflation has come down. Even though, they're still going to the same grocery stores, the same gas stations. Having to pay the same rent. And they're believing and buying into the gaslighting.

So that's my concern.

Is when you have so many people who are decoupled from reality. And can fed the propaganda that's gaslighting. And they're willing to -- basically, you know, they're cults. That that is not going to show up in the polls. The way that it should. If we were operating, you know, with some sort of normal baseline.

GLENN: Carol, I'm going to take a quick break, early here.

Because I don't want to interrupt you on this petrodollar thing.

Because I have seen stories that say, this is true.

Stories that say it wasn't true. I don't think there ever was a -- there wasn't a concrete deal. It was more of a handshake with Saudi Arabia. With the petrodollar. Wasn't it?

Or did we have a written deal?

CAROL: That's right. So I was surprised when I saw this as well. You know, I wrote about this in You'll Own Nothing. We have a whole chapter on it.

And there was a deal put in place. But never once did I come across anything that said, we have a specific expiration. But we know deals that, you know, are made. Can be shifted and changed at any point in time.

And I think that's the point we want to talk about.

GLENN: Correct.

Okay. So we'll do that next.

Because the petrodollar. If the world goes off the petrodollar.

That is -- that is the beginning of the end of the dollar.

It's just a matter of time. And what are people replacing? It with?

And so far, central banks are not replacing it with any currency at all.

We'll talk about it here, in just a second.

Okay.

So, Carol, explain why the petrodollar is so important.

VOICE: All right. So there's this story that was going around last week. That the Saudis had ended this agreement, that had been put in place in the '70s.

So what happened was that when the US went off the gold standard, they were very concerned over what was going to happen. So they created this secret delegation, that went to Saudi Arabia.

As part of a diplomatic chore. And there was a lot of chaos going on at that time. Not only did we go off the gold standard.

There was an oil embargo put in place by the Arab oil exporters. That set the price of oil sky-high.

So the big objective, was basically, they -- the US didn't want crude oil.

You know, energy. Which is obviously really what fueled growth around the world, to become an economic weapon.

And they knew they knew, okay. Well, now we're off the gold standard.

We had the currency. Wouldn't it be great to have somebody to finance their deficits?

So what they did, is they went to the Saudis. And they said, well, look, you come. You take -- you're going to agree to basically price oil in dollars.

And that's -- around the world, oil is going to be priced in dollars. And you will have all this excess money.

We want you to plow that back into US treasuries. Everything that you get in. We want to you plow that back into treasuries?

Why did they want that? Because that obviously helped the US finance their deficits at a very cheap rate.

He said with be okay. We'll do that. What we want in return, basically some economic and military support. And so they made this -- this deal. That was brokered.

The interesting part is there was a secret piece of it, and that was that the Saudis did not want everyone to know, that they had this huge Treasury stockpile. So for more than four --

GLENN: Why?

Wait. Wait. Wait.

Why didn't they?

CAROL: Because they must want everyone to know that this was sort of the underpinnings of the deals of how closely they were in bed, with the US.

GLENN: Okay. With the US. Okay.

CAROL: And that this is what they did. So this was actually uncovered by a Bloomberg report.

So for 41 years, what the US Treasury did when they broke out what central banks held the US Treasury, and you can go see if China holds this. Japan holds this.

They lumped Saudi Arabia in with 14 other nations. So basically, you could see, oh. We cut this special deal, and now it looks like now, that there's all this wonderful demand for treasuries around the world.

And it was kind of unclear that there was this alliance going on.

So what does that do? It creates a massive demand for the Treasury, because not only are the Saudis in there as huge buyers, but when you have -- you know, sort of a de facto basis. The oil price in US dollars. Then every other central bank will also want to make sure that they have a stockpile of a dollar equivalent security. That if they need dollars, they can cash in.

Of course, as opposed to holding actual dollars. When you hold the Treasury you do get some income. Or you get an interest rate. So basically, this has created huge demand for Treasuries. It means that the interest was artificially suppressed by that demand. And that the US government was able to finance their deficits.

It also meant that trade around the world, was done, you know, US dollars. So not only are these central banks, holding them in the reserves. There's all this trade that's happening in US dollars.

So this actually worked out for quite some time.

The Fed holding basically the world's reserve currency. And managing it. They held the US dollar fairly stable. When you saw the price of gas go up. That they would loosen monetary policy.

And when it was too low. They would tighten it, that they would stay in some sort of a range. Sometimes that was at odds with what was going on domestically.

But as the holder of the world's reserve currency, that was their job.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Stop for just a second.

I just want to make the point: This is right now, where we're about to see the change, and it's not happening now. It's already happened.

We -- when we got off the gold standard. We promised the world, we will never put ourselves, you know, absolutely first. And go off, and do crazy spending.

And, you know, just break everything for America.

And that's why, it was at odds, sometimes. The fed's policies.

Were at odds.

With the United States policy.

Or -- or -- wants and needs.

Because they had to balance it for the world.

And then what happened, Carol?

CAROL: Yes. So for the economic wonks out there, that's called the Triffin dilemma. You sometimes have to make these tradeoffs between what happens domestically and what happens internationally.

What happened, if we come back to today, is that the Fed has managed to hold the dollar, not stable.

Either for the world, or domestically. So it's not like they even made the tradeoff.

They just abandoned it altogether. But going back to 2005, they decided when the price of oil shot up due to China's increase in demand.

Hurricane Katrina, a whole bunch of things. That they just weren't going to play this game anymore, and that's when things started to crack.

Then we had the Great Recession financial crisis, and so on and so forth.

And the US government continuing to run these huge deficits.

And just, you know, creating a really challenging situation, economically.

So the big issue, if you are these countries around the world. That now have everything priced in dollars.

All your major commodities.

It's not just oil.

It's then extending into food.

Everybody is trading into dollars.

When you have these huge swings in the dollar, that means, that threatens as a nation.

Because now you may not be able to afford energy.

Or you may not be able to afford your food for your country.

That's a national security issue.

GLENN: Forty seconds.

CAROL: Countries are getting sick of that. We weaponize the US dollar. And at the end of the day, they're starting to move away from it. Which threatens our ability to have cheap financing and our standard of living.

GLENN: And so the Saudis did not break a deal.

We've broken the deal long ago.

And they're just all doing what would normally be done. It's no longer good for me.

It's got to be good for both of us.

And so they didn't stop the deal. They're just naturally moving away.

And it's -- the money is going to gold, not other currencies at this point. Correct?

CAROL: Correct. You got it. You nailed it.

"That is Where We Are, America:" 15 Lines from ‘1984’ That Have Come True

Glenn has been warning for a while now that George Orwell’s dystopian novel, “1984,” reads like a newspaper today. Well, he recently stumbled upon an article that lays it all out. Glenn reviews the article from The Federalist, “15 Times 2024 Was Orwell’s 1984,” that shows just how dystopian our society has gotten: "That is where we are, America. We are living in 1984."

GLENN: Let's say, hello, and welcome back to Stu Burguiere. hello, Stu.

STU: Hey, Glenn, how are you?

PAT: Good. Nice to have you. Nice to have you here.

Let's go true a couple of things here. I was reading a story about Donald Trump getting ready to go to the debate next week.

And he's preparing and people are speculating. Why would he ever accept?

Why would he -- so you think Donald Trump is not going to accept all of the baby conditions that Joe Biden has set for the -- for the debate?

Of course he will.

He's not going to be set. They won't say to him. Oh, well, we wanted to debate.

But he wouldn't. He'll do it. And he will do pretty well.

But Joe Biden is going to do better than he probably would, in any other format. And Donald Trump said, they'll probably pump him up.

Now, I don't know if -- I don't know if that is true. But it sure explains the performance of let's say, the State of the Union address. Where he was vigorous.

He was like, whoa!

Who is this guy?

I believe, and we won't know for decades, but I believe they are juicing him, on important nights.

This is not new, this shouldn't come as a conspiracy theory or a shock to anybody.

They did it with JFK, and they're -- they did it with FDR. In fact, FDR is probably the closest parallel to Joe Biden. FDR, the war was going well.

We're starting to turn the tides on -- on Germany. But we hadn't gone on to D-Day yet.

I'm sorry. FDR comes back from the meeting with Stalin.

And Churchill in Tehran. And as he comes back, he's got a really bad violent cough.

He starts to lose weight. He's constantly fatigued. His daughter Anna was so freaked out by all of it. That she pressed the doctors. Please, could you please have him see a cardiologist, at Bethesda. So he went in to Bethesda hospital, for examination.

And when he came out. Everything was great. No. The president is in perfect health. However, according to the medical notes, that were published, six decades later, that doctor diagnosed him with reduced lung capacity. Hypertension. Or high blood pressure.

Which we didn't have a way to treat back then. Acute bronchitis.

And most seriously, acute congestive heart failure. So now, they're not treating him, because we didn't have the medication.

The only treatment was regulating a patient's lifestyle. And, you know, herbal drugs. And then telling him, don't drink alcohol.

Tobacco. Don't do any of that. So that means in May of 1944. A month before D-Day. The daily schedule of the US. Unbeknownst to the American people, was only four hours a day.

He could only work and be involved four hours a day.

Now, he did that for a while. And he started to improve a little bit. But in July, of 1944, he had another doctor examine him. And said, he's not going to survive the term.

And he's got another full-term coming up.

And there's an election. And I don't think he will make it for the entire full-term in office.

Panel of experts were called in. They all examined.

And they all agreed. He's not going to make it.

Okay?

Did the American people know that?

No!

They didn't. It was too important to the country, to make sure that he looked strong and vigorous.

Well, what do you think is happening with Joe Biden?

Do you honestly think that things that have been done before, are not being done right now?

And what's disturbing about it, is these people work for us.

Now, I understand, maybe. Perhaps. In war. Although, no. I don't. No, I don't.

I need a president that is vigorous.
And if a president is not vigorous, especially at a time of war, I don't know if you're paying attention to what's going on in the world. But we are growing ever so close, to nuclear war.

There was a -- what was it. Oh, it was one of the former Soviet satellite states. And the president came out, and he's like, look, you can think, whatever you want about the United States. Or whatever you want about Russia.

But we're out of this. Because. Both cannot back away from this. And I think we're months away from a nuclear war. And somebody has to stand up and say, get to the peace table.

And it's -- it's very compelling. Very compelling to listen to him. So should we know about the President's health? Of course we should. But we won't.

Because we are living in the days of 1984. Listen to these 15 things, that Monroe Harlis (phonetic) pointed out in the Federalist. Fifteen ways that 1984 is 2024. Quote, from the book, the party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final and most essential command. Have you seen this? Have you seen the party demand you to reject your eyes and ears? All the time.

We're seeing it all the time. Two, endless wars. Quote, they add nothing to the wealth of the world, since whatever they produce is used for purposes of war. And the object of war is always to be in a better position in which to wage another war. End quote.

Have you seen the video of Joe Biden talking about American weapons being used for direct strikes inside of Russia?

And why -- why -- why do some people speculate, that the real purpose of this is to get rid of all our own old weapons so we can make new weapons, which will be better in the next war.

Doesn't this sound exactly like 1984. Number three, separating babies from mothers at birth. Quote, from the book, already we're breaking down the habits of the revolution which have survived from before the revolution.

Children will be taken from their mothers at birth, as one takes eggs from a hen. What exactly is the issue here?

Well, the issue is: The well-being of a child.

A living, breathing human, who was created for the sole purpose of being sold and ripped away from her mom.

This is -- this is something that is happening through surrogacy. And honestly, later in life, it is happening, because of political correctness.

Four, hatred of purity and goodness. I hate purity. I hate good is not.

I don't want virtue to exist anywhere. I want everyone to be corrupt to the bones. End quote.

Well, did -- did anybody see what -- what happened to Butker for being a Christian?

They tore him apart. Condemned him. Ray Rice. Nothing compared.

Five, the news lies. One knows the news is all lies anyway, from 1984.

Yeah. Well, what do we think? Do we all know that the news is nothing, but a lie? And now the news is saying, they are fighting advertise information?

Six, the destruction of the family. The sex impulse was dangerous to the party. And the party had to turn it to account. They had played a similar trick with the instinct of parenthood. The children on the other happened were systematically turned against their parents and taught to spy on them and report their deviations. The family had become, in fact, an extension of the thought police.

Do I need to give you an example? Seven, political correctness.

Don't you see the whole aim of newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?

In the end, we shall make thought crime literally impossible because there are no words in which to express it.

Producers. Birthing people. Chest feeding. Eight, persecution of political opponents.

Power is a means. It is an end. The object of persecution is persecution.

Reporter, President Trump refers to himself as a political prisoner and blames you directly.

What's your response, sir. He just smiles.

Nine, the innocent are suffering.

How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?

By making him suffer. Exactly barbecue by making him suffer.

Obedience is not enough. Unless he's suffering.

How can you be sure, he's obeying your will and not his own.

How about the 75-year-old Paulette Harlo, who is in poor health.

She also was somebody who -- I believe survived a -- a communist cooperation catch.

She's in prison for two years, for praying outside of an abortion clinic.

Truth is redefined. Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two equal four.

11, hypocrisy from government agencies. The ministry of peace concerns itself with war. The ministry of truth with lies. The ministry of love with torture. And the ministry of plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental. Nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy.

They are deliberate exercises in double think. Remember, the FBI is a terrorist organization.

It's the American Stasi. It exists entirely to terrorize the American people on behalf of a corrupt and evil regime.

No, no, no.

The FBI is the center of truth.

Contradicting beliefs. Double think means to the -- has the means -- the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one mind simultaneously, accepting both of them.

Just so we're clear here. Democrats who are campaigning against Trump. Based on dubious charges of sexual assault. They engineered.

Are still inviting people like Bill Clinton to headline big ticket events, along with his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. Even though that's been well-established, they're still okay with that.

Thirteen, dates altered. Every record has been destroyed or falsified. Every book, rewritten. Every picture has been repainted. Every statue, street building has been renamed.

Every date has been altered.

Well, in an attempt to replace Easter, the most important Christian holiday of the year with Transgender Day. I think, you know, that kind of does it. This is the beginning, and worse is coming.

Fourteen, no trust. We have cut the links between child and parent, between man and man. No man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer. But in the future, there will be no wives. There will be no friends. And statistics are lies.

The fabulous statistics continue to pour out of the telescreen.

As compared with last year, there was more food. More clothes.

More houses. More furniture. More cooking pots.

More fuel. More helicopters. More books. More babies. More of everything. Except for poverty, disease, crime, and insanity.

That is where we are America. We are living in 1984.
