Democrats have officially filed their articles impeachment against President Trump, and they're accusing him of both abusing his presidential powers AND obstructing Congress. But how can the president obstruct Congress, when the Constitutional separation of powers were designed for him to do that very thing? Even Obama's DOJ said that the president and his advisors have immunity from appearing in front of a congressional committee. If the Democrats get their way and the Republicans do not truly open up everything, and they don't investigate the whistleblower, the collusion with the Democrats...if we don't undercover all of this, the Republic is deeply, deeply hurt. Because the government has three roles: providing a common defense, promoting the general welfare, and promoting domestic tranquility and right now they're doing exactly the opposite of two of those.
Glenn reads some of his favorite poetic works of Edgar Allen Poe—"The Raven" and "The Tell-Tale Heart"—stories he used to read to his kids every Halloween. He also tells the love story of Edgar Allan Poe and his wife, Virginia, whom he married when she was only 13 years old.
Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
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?
