The one million or so Democratic candidates took the stage yet again for another 2020 debate. The media says that during the CNN-hosted event, the "moderates" fought back...but, who are the moderates?! Elizabeth Warren is fighting for a wealth tax, which basically puts a triple tax on Americans worth a certain amount of money. Not only is it completely unconstitutional, but it's FAR from moderate as well. And ALL the other candidates -- except Andrew Yang -- say they essentially agree with her proposal. Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is calling for political revolution, and Joe Biden says he's the only one who can actually achieve these radical plans. So, New York Times, who exactly are these moderate candidates you write of?
Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.
Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
During a campaign stop in Aurora, Colorado recently, a woman named Lauren Boebert confronted Beto O'Rourke about his recent statement that "hell yes" certain guns — like the AR 15 — would be confiscated during his presidency. Boebert said "Hell No," then explained to Beto why a gun confiscation will done nothing good for the safety of America.
Never forget the lives lost on September 11th, 2001. We give tribute to the nearly three thousand people murdered on 9/11 -- whether inside the World Trade Center, the brave men and women who ran towards the danger, or aboard the four planes. And we remember the millions of Americans who stood together in the days after.
