Expert predicts Donald Trump’s ‘MAJOR’ news after FBI raid

President Trump recently teased on Truth Social a ‘major’ announcement ‘pertaining to the Fourth Amendment’ and concerning the FBI’s recent raid of his Mar-a-Lago home. So what could Donald Trump be planning to do next? Journalist John Solomon, author of ‘Fallout,’ gives Glenn his best guess. Plus, Solomon details more information concerning the raid, and he recaps FBI corruption that’s existed for DECADES: ‘This is an agency that has…a very big history of abuses. Time and time and time again.’


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: John Solomon. Welcome to the program. How are you, sir?

JOHN: Great to be with you, Glenn.

GLENN: It's great to be with you. We are living in insane times. I remember we -- you know, we've talked for years now.

Did you -- did you ever really believe that it would ever get like this?

JOHN: I didn't, no. Yet, we've had this great American experience for 246 years. And I think back to that speech you gave at CPAC on February, and all the things you said, somewhere along the way, we jumped out of the roots of this great country. And we're in a place now, that doesn't resemble the America that we all grew up in. It's a very troubling time.

GLENN: Yeah. So I think a lot of people during the last couple of weeks, have learned a lot about what to do, and what to expect, when you're served a warrant at your house. It's actually a good way. It's God's way of teaching us the Constitution, I think. What happened with Donald Trump, is, again, I believe a horror show. There's no way he is selling secrets. You know, nuclear secrets to Finland, this is ridiculous.

It does now seem to appear, to be a shot across the bow because he was trying to release documents, that showed who was involved in the Russia hoax. Is that true?

JOHN: Well, listen, there is this long six-year battle between the FBI and Donald Trump. And of course, it starts with Russia collusion, which we now know as completely contrived and political investigation, but had no predicate, no merit whatsoever.

As the presidency is coming to an end, as Donald Trump is leaving office on January 19th, 2021, he declassified the documents, the FBI never wanted out in public.

They didn't want these documents out. These are the ways they handled their informants. What they do before they sign the FISA warrants. What they were telling the court, versus what they knew internally.

That just inflamed the FBI all the more. And for the last year, as I reported. The FBI secretly grabbed those documents. The president declassified them. He ordered them to be released. In the last hour of the Trump presidency, I'm told at 11 o'clock on January 20th, 2021, the FBI and the Justice Department grabbed those documents. They made up an excuse. Saying, hey, we left a couple of Privacy Act pieces of information in there, from the declassified documents.

Let's grab them. We'll fix that, and we'll release them. They grabbed them for 19 months. They kept them from the American public despite a lawful order of a sitting president.

GLENN: Unbelievable. So he had the documents, but they hadn't been redacted?

JOHN: They were redacted. They were completely ready. They were declassified. All the declassified markings. At the last minute, the Justice Department raised an issue that maybe there was a piece of information there still covered by the private sector. Let's go look at it real quickly. It looks like it was really just an excuse to grab the documents.

GLENN: All right. So did he have those at Mar-a-Lago? Do we know? Is that what they were going off of?

JOHN: No one has told me -- I haven't found anyone who told me that they had the documents there. And, of course, I've asked the president. Do you have the documents?

He's told me no.

That's why he gave me permission as a journalist, to go to the non-public section out of the national archives to try to find these documents.

That's what led us to the discovery just three weeks ago, that these documents had been grabbed by the Justice Department. And a secret hand, grabbed them and put them in the Justice Department.

GLENN: So you haven't been able to find them?

JOHN: No. We know where they are now. There's two sets. There's a classified set at the national archives. I can't see them. Because I don't have any security clearance, nor does anyone else in normal America.

Right. I could have -- that's probably not advisable. And then the second part, is there is a set with the Justice Department. And I'm taking multiple actions to try to force the Justice Department. And I hope to have really good news later this week. I've been negotiating with the archives. They have been working with the Justice Department. I have a sense, an inkling, that we might get these documents in the near future.

GLENN: All right. So what was it that the FBI do you think, was looking for?

JOHN: It's a great question, right. The first possibility is maybe what they said, is all that it is. Right? This is a dispute between the archives and former President Donald Trump, and they actually went through this unprecedented means to get documents back, by raiding his home.

I haven't found any other great explanation for people. And I think when people look bang. If that's all this was. If this was a dispute over documents, there is a civil process, that could have been followed. And that means they will have criminalized a dispute over paper. And with some serious issues involved. And I think there's another part of this, Glenn, that we haven't been able to dig into. I'm really working on now.

It is impossible for this sort of a dispute to go on, and for it to become criminalized without the Biden White House -- there's just no way, the way the system of government works. So what was the Biden/White House's role in these conversations?

I think that's the next big shoe to drop. I don't know what it is. But I'm determined to find out what it is. The way government works, you have these issues of privilege. You have these issues of I would dispute, between the current administration, the past administration. The Biden White House had to be in the loop

And I don't think their story adds up.

GLENN: Well, I have to tell you, just on common sense, and the way the world has worked in America. There's no way a decision that large, that would come back to the White House, eventually, and affect the presidency, not just Biden and Trump. But the entire presidency. There's no way the Justice Department doesn't call and at least give a heads-up. Am I wrong?

JOHN: I'm 100 percent with you. And I think there's another issue here. Remember that there -- the grand jury subpoena. Which I broke the story a couple weeks ago, was executed on June 3rd. In a collaborative way, by the way. Both sides were still working together then. That didn't address the issue of executive privilege. What does that mean?

It means somewhere earlier in the process, somebody to wave executive privilege in order for a grand jury subpoena to be issued for executive documents. The only way Donald Trump is going to be waving it. I think we're going to find out that the Biden administration waived executive administration for Trump. And that they were deeply involved in it. That's just the only plausible explanation for why there wouldn't be a privilege claim back in June, when the grand jury first showed it to be. This first --

GLENN: Wow. So, John, I'm doing a special on Wednesday. On the history of the FBI. And how -- and how corrupt it has been. I mean, it really was corrupt from the very beginning.

You know, we had Hoover doing all kinds of stuff, that was really, really dark and bad. Are we at or beyond the Hoover days?

JOHN: Well, listen, one of the big stories I did when I was at the Washington Post, and I worked with 60 Minutes. For 40 years, for 40 years, the FBI would go into -- take it out of politics for a second.

They would go into a case, and say, that guy on trial for murder, I can assure you, that the bullets we found in his bedroom door, matches the bullets that were shot out of that gun.

And for 40 years, they testified that hundreds upon hundreds upon hundreds of murder defendants were convicted based on the FBI scientists. The story I broke in 2007, showed the FBI knew all along, that that science was junk science. It wasn't true. That they couldn't make such a representation, and yet they continued to make it, well past -- I mean, during the Hoover years. Well-past -- all the way into the Mueller easier. So the history of the FBI. Which was the church hearings. Which went into the Hoover era. Or what we learned in 9/11. The mistakes of the Oklahoma City bombing. The problems with the FBI.

This is an agency that has a very big representation. But it also has a very big history of abuses. Time and time and time again.

GLENN: Any way to reign that in.

JOHN: It's a great question preponderance is some of the policy makers I've talked to in Congress. For the first time, I've heard Republicans tell me privately, you know what, it's time to break up the FBI. Maybe have them -- make them like Scotland Yard, and put the Domestic Intelligence into a different agency. There is clearly a moment of reckoning for the FBI within on the immediate horizon. The real question is, if you just take the counterintelligence division up. You put it somewhere else. The mentality still exists that there's not a regard to the Constitution. That's the part, whether it's inside the FBI or outside of it, the lack of regard for the Fourth Amendment, for our liberties in the face of a big government, that's the part that hasn't been flesh out. I'm not sure just dividing the FBI.

GLENN: Well, especially the intelligence arm.

The intelligence agencies are completely out of control. The things I've read about the intelligence agencies. And I've heard from people on Capitol Hill. Is they really don't answer to anybody right now.

JOHN: Yeah. Yeah. They have their own mindset. Their own mentality. So much of what they do, can say secret, no matter what. As we're seeing in this search warrant today. We never get a visibility, to know if the excuse they're giving to us, is real. And only years later, through lawsuits and FOIAs that we find out. Well, the officials in the intelligence community didn't match, what we were told at the time. It's that secrecy, that I think creates so much concern.

There was an opportunity to know of Russian collusion. Why Republicans were still in control of both -- to do something, to trade a permanent advocate. So that all intelligence cases that occurred in secret, there would be someone advocating on behalf of the American, whose liberties were about to be violated. They when I find on that, Paul Ryan whiffed on that. But I think there's a lot of people today, that would go back and say, you know, if I had to do over, I would probably create that public advocate who goes into the court and argues on behalf of you and me and everybody else.

GLENN: Yeah. So, John, what do you think Donald Trump is talking about, when he says that, you know -- he said over the weekend, it might be within hours. It might be Monday, that I'm going to be filing something. And big news coming. What do you think that might be?

JOHN: My reporting indicates that that the president is considering, filing a motion to remove Judge Bruce Reinhart, who by the way, just a few minutes ago ruled that the entire affidavit cannot be kept sealed. He believes, he used the word unprecedented. I'm glad he recognizes what he approves as unprecedented, but he is rejecting the Justice Department's request to keep the affidavit secret.

GLENN: Wait. Wait. Wait. He rejected the -- the Department of Justice?

JOHN: Just broke just a few minutes ago.

It's up on Just The News right now. Judge Reinhart this morning said the Justice Department's request to keep the entire affidavit for the search warrant, under seal, is rejected. That this is an unprecedented case. It requires transparency, so people can understand why the FBI was authorized to raid a former president's home. That just happened this morning. That's something that the president was cheering on.

GLENN: And how long will it be before we see that?

JOHN: Well, there are two options. Either they have to deliver the unredacted version of the affidavit on Thursday. Or a more likely scenario is the Justice Department will slow walk this. Go to a district judge, then go to an appeals court. Maybe even go to the Supreme Court.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

JOHN: My guess is they will go that route. But meanwhile the president -- to answer your question, I think the president is going to ask that a special master be appointed. A court-appointed independent person. Take the documents from the FBI and go through them and say these are -- these aren't. These are overly expansive. They shouldn't have be collected like your passports. And not leave the FBI on an honor system, given all we know. So I think that's what we'll see the president do.

GLENN: That would be great. John, thank you so much.

JOHN: Great to talk to you. Always an honor to be on your show.

GLENN: Likewise.

All right. When I say back to school shopping scam, I would assume you're thinking I'm just talking about that list of stuff you're supposed to get for you kid. Know, a bag full of stuff, that he's probably never, ever going to use anyway. Now, that's true. But there are also real back to school shopping scams out there. Buyer beware. It is important to understand cyber crime and identity theft. And how they will affect your life. And they will come cloaked a million different ways, which is why no one can prevent all of it, or catch all of the bad guys. And only LifeLock is the one that comes to the table. And says, look, we're going to do our absolute best. And we have the best track record at it. We're the longest running in the industry. But also, we have a team of experts, that are going to fix it.

Ten-second station ID.
There is a -- I can't say this anymore. An unbelievable story.

There is another believable story, because it's only believable because of everything else that's going on.

You know, it's funny. We're called extremists. But only common sense and tradition now is extreme. It's extreme because everything else is insane.

We have an amazing story about a guy, who was canceled by Google, that you have to hear. Because this one affects you. And I haven't really heard anybody really tie this together, on how this will affect you. It's an outrageous story. We will have this coming up in a second. What do you think of John Stossel, and what he just said?

STU: Pretty amazing. You know, it does seem like -- the overreach is clear. And the -- and the courts may back up some of the Trump side of this. Which is always a plenty surprise, I suppose. When you go into this level of scrutiny. But I do think that there's a chance that this stuff really backfires on them. I think -- you know, you've always had the right, be the one who is defending the FBI in a lot of these institutions. And say, look, we understand. And we've said this a million times. We understand there are some problems in some of these institutions. They need to be rooted out.

It seems like the right after this, is getting to the point, where they're just giving up on that. Like, we can't.

GLENN: Hang on just a second.

Would you call John Solomon back just a second and say, sorry, Glenn has one more question that I forgot to ask him. I want to ask him about the whistle-blowers. Because he's in a position, to know. Are we seeing more whistle-blowers, than usual?

Because that's the feeling I get, reading some stories.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And hearing from Congress. That FBI agents are coming forward, and going, this has got to stop. And that to me, is heartening.

STU: You're also hearing this from people -- was it Grassley that came out with a big list -- was it 14 whistle-blowers on this one story?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: That's not the typical -- this isn't like, I don't know, a hard-core Trump ally. He's just a normal kind of institutional Republican. He's been there for 500,000 years. And he's the type of guy you wouldn't necessarily think would be making erratic claims about this type of thing.

GLENN: No. He's kind of old school, reasonable reasonable, just consistent. Just consistent.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: But he's been saying that -- and if they're not -- if you are in the FBI, I plead with you. Plead with you to have zero tolerance for anything unconstitutional and whistle-blow. Come to us. Come to Project Veritas. Come to anyone. Anyone.

But please blow the whistle.

Because you're all going to be painted with the same brush, you know. What happened -- what happened with the police, in many cases, now, this is not the case with BLM. It just gave fuel to BLM.

Is the -- the -- for a long time, the police officers would close their ranks. And they would protect their own.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: You can't. If there's a practice bad guy, you've got for rat them out, otherwise, you'll all be deemed bad.

And I would like to be in a position where I trust the FBI. I don't know if I'll ever be there again. I don't know if I'll ever be there.

STU: And that's probably a healthy thing. There should be some general skepticism. You know, many of our people more on the Libertarian side of -- of the right have pointed this out many times. That conservatives tend to have a real skepticism of government, except for law enforcement and sometimes the military.

And that's not always the best thing to do. You should have the skepticism of government on all these facets. You just shouldn't wildly blame law enforcement for being wrong every single time.

GLENN: I want to be in a neutral position, you know.

STU: Hey, judge things by the facts. That's all we're asking here.

GLENN: Right. And the problem is, if the Intelligence and Justice Department have gone bad, who do you call? Because Ghostbusters is out of business. I don't know if you know that.

STU: No. Yeah, they're in business.

GLENN: No. That's a parallel universe.

STU: Really? That didn't really happen?

GLENN: No. Uh-uh.

STU: A better universe.

GLENN: No. The last I saw, all the equipment was, you know, buried in some place in the middle of the country.

STU: Probably better than what actually happened, you know.

GLENN: So we -- we need the trust in our institutions, and our FBI.

Please, if you're in the FBI, set the record straight. And -- and get rid of all of the bad things in your life, and whistle-blow!

You see something, say something. Are you getting tired of being told that you're what's wrong with America?

Are you tired of corporations going woke right and left?

Well, the good news is, you're awake. And so you don't have to pay for -- for services from a company that hate you. And then have some of the profit that they make, invested in the organizations that also hate you. And want to destroy everything that you love.

Patriot Mobile is your phone company. It is the one that will give you your cell phone and give you the same great service. The coverage. They're on the same cell towers as all the others.

And they love you. And they are actually in fighting for you. Go to Or call 972PATRIOT. 972PATRIOT. Use the offer code Beck. Get free activation. Join the movement. Pay less. Get great coverage. And actually be with a company that is fighting for your God-given rights. 972PATRIOT.

STU: The promo code is Glenn to save ten bucks to BlazeTV. More coming up.
(OUT AT 9:28AM)

GLENN: Hello, you sick freak. Yes, what would Monday be without a monkey pox update?

The CDC, the Center for Disease, Control, and Prevention has released a study over the weekend, suggesting that people should wear a mask, to protect themselves from monkey pox.

Now --

STU: Wait. There's no evidence that this is an airborne virus?


STU: So why would we wear a mask to avoid monkey pox?

GLENN: Well, I've said --

STU: It's an airborne virus. Would have seen how little they work. But why would --

GLENN: Well, because we've had -- we know now, monkey pox, the CDC came out last week, and said, monkey pox is something that is being spread, mainly through men having more than ten partners, and it is a sexual disease. It is being spread sexually. It's not a sexual disease. But it's being spread sexually.

STU: It's sort of a long-term intimate contact needed to spread this.

GLENN: Correct. So they didn't say that everyone should wear a mask.

STU: Uh-oh.

GLENN: I'm wondering if that's like a face condom, or what exactly -- how do you -- I mean, unless they're just lying to us, and one of those two things is wrong. Either the mask or how it spread.

If you're trying to logically figure it out, you've got to do some pretty complicated Common Core math. And show me your work, on how you got there.

STU: Hmm. I have a question about monkey pox.

GLENN: Yeah. I don't think I should answer it.

STU: No. Probably not. But they keep saying, we were talking about this phrase, men who were having sex with men. Which is the phrase now used. It's not gay people, or bisexual people. It's men who have sex with men. They keep saying that phrase over and over again. For some reason.

GLENN: Well, because gay sex, I think, could be sex between two women.

STU: Well, it's usually, there's an L in the LGBT, right? They could -- they keep saying, like, this is happening in the LGBTQ --

GLENN: I don't know what words mean anymore. I don't know what words mean.

STU: So this is my question, what about men who have sex with trans women? Could they be affected with this?

GLENN: No, that's completely different. It is to them.

STU: Here's the thing, they're biological men who have transitioned to women. I think this is what I would be accused of.

GLENN: Hater. Hater. Hater. I don't think monkey pox --

STU: Will the monkey pox -- is that --

GLENN: I don't think you can label someone who is now claiming to be a woman.

STU: Monkey pox will essentially approach the trans woman and say, I was thinking about infecting this particular man.

GLENN: You. Yeah.

STU: Then I realized, actually, this person is identifying as a woman, therefore, it's totally safe to have sex with this person.

GLENN: Right. Monkeys are not animals, man.

STU: Wait.

GLENN: All right. We have a really important story to share with you. It broke over the weekend. And it involves Google and a dad.

STU: Yes. So a dad in San Francisco, this is February 2021. If you know anything about San Francisco, this was like mid-lockdown. They were still in pull full fledge, right. Of lockdown. So the dad. Stay at home dad, had his son. And his son is having some issues in a sensitive area, if you would. And a rash of some sort, some redness, some swelling, breaking out.

GLENN: Monkey pox.

STU: Now, of course -- now, this wasn't monkey pox. This was pre-monkey pox era. This child is having some discomfort. You're of course not allowed to go outside for some reason. So they're doing a virtual doctor's visit. While they're doing this virtual doctor's visit. The doctor requests photos to understand what's going on.

GLENN: Look, I'm not going anywhere really dark with the doctor, is it?

STU: No.

GLENN: Good. I'm just asking for the listener.

STU: Well, if you survived the monkey pox update, I think you already are here.

GLENN: Right. This one is a lot more tame.

STU: Yes. This is more tame. So he takes some photos, to give to the doctor of his child's area. Sends the photos.

The doctor recognizes what the rash is, what the issue is, sends antibiotics. Gets it knocked out immediately. Everybody is happy.

GLENN: Got it. So, I mean, want to recap this story. It's during covid lockdown. Dad is locked in the house. The doctor has these virtual visits. The doctor, a good guy. Asks the father, a good guy, to take a picture of the sensitive areas of the son who is a good guy. So the doctor can diagnosis and give the right prescription.

STU: Which he does, and it works. Everybody is happy. Apparently not. Not according to the people over at Google. Who have an algorithm, running over all his photos, that are in the cloud.


STU: And this photo that was apparently uploaded automatically to the cloud.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: Sends -- sets off some alerts, that say, this could be child porn. Now, of course --

GLENN: But it's not child porn.

STU: It's not child porn.

GLENN: Now, was Google monitoring this guy, because they suspected child porn?

STU: No. This is an automated algorithm, that is scanning the photos much every single person who uses Google cloud.

GLENN: Everyone. Uh-huh. Okay.

STU: Now, you might say, there's some utility to this. If it was child porn, it would probably be really good that this was alerted. And maybe some child could have been protected from some horrible, horrible incident.

GLENN: Sure. So they should have maybe reached out to some doctor. Well, but the doctor could have been -- he was on the receiving end, so to speak.

STU: Right. But what needs to happen here? The algorithm sets off these alarms. And then it goes to a human. And the human would have to determine at some level. So this happens, apparently. It's egregious enough for the people at Google, to alert the police. And shut down his entire account. Shutting down his access to his email. Deleting all of his photos from the beginning of his child's life all the way through. Deleting all of his documents.

GLENN: Okay. So wait a minute. Hang on just a second. If you were trying to catch somebody who was in child porn, the last thing you would want to do is tip them off that the authorities are on to them. So Google just -- they call the police. Then they just delete everything?

STU: At least from his access point. So he cannot access any of his stuff. Now, of course, this means he can't access the photos to prove he's innocent. Because now he no longer has excess to the photos that he took, that were his.

GLENN: What happened to the doctor's office that received the photos?

STU: Well, nothing at this point.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: So this goes on. He goes to Google, and appeals it. And says, look, my kid was sick, the doctor asked for these photos. I sent them. They reject his appeal.

Then months later, he gets a letter from the San Francisco police department. San Francisco police department has alerted him that they have begun an investigation. Have looked at all these photos.

He gets in touch with them, and explains to the San Francisco Police Department, hey, look, this is what was the situation. The Police Department sees all the evidence, and agrees with them. And says, okay. Obviously, no crime here.

He did not commit a crime here. This was not child porn. He was sending them to a doctor. So now you have the dad. You have the doctor. You have the police department, all saying the same thing.

GLENN: And the boy.

STU: And the boy. This is not a crime. There is no abuse here. Seems all appearances. All the evidence that we have. A good dad, trying it help his son, through a difficult moment in his life. The only standout here is Google.

So now the story escalates to the New York Times. The Times comes in, documents all of this. Has actually, apparently looked at the photos now. And has also determined, this is not child porn. Right? So we're sure on this one, it seems. Every point of evidence.

GLENN: I think people at the New York Times might be able to know what child porn looks like.

STU: They may very well be able to do that.

GLENN: So he wanted -- so they've gone through all of this. The dad wanted to sue Google, because, you know --

GLENN: They've shut --

STU: They shut him out. They say no. Even with the word of the police department. They still said no.

So he wanted to sue Google. He realized it was too expensive. He didn't have the money to do it. So he is just basically now in the constant state of trying to get them to change their mind, even with all of this. The Times contacts Google and gets a comment on the record where they say, yeah, we're not reversing it. After all of this. The police department is on the record saying, we have a copy of all of his data, but on a jump track. And they are saying, they want to work with the dad, to get him access to all his information back. But at this point, Google is still denying it.

GLENN: Now, imagine when Google and the United States are in bed with each other more than they already are. Imagine the ESG aspect of this. Dad is put on a list by Google. Google shares information by the government. The government shares information by the banks. Dad does not just lose all of his pictures. All of his contacts. And his Google phone. Dad would lose all phones. Dad would lose his banking. Dad would lose absolutely everything, because he would be too much of a risk.

And who do you go to? Who do you go to?

The New York Times? Who do you go to, to say, hey. I need to get my name off of this list. It doesn't -- now, let me add one additional thing to this. I told you last week, that the World Economic Forum, has said, that bullying and everything else, online and disinformation, misinformation, malinformation is too big of a problem globally.

So they are now pushing for high-tech and governments to endorse a system that would look at your tweet or whatever in question, and the algorithm would decide whether or not that is good or bad. If it's bad, it then makes a tree of everything that you do. So it goes back, and it looks at, who is influencing you?

And if those people -- it deletes you. Then it goes to all of the people with contacts. All of the people in your social media realm. And it looks for anyone else, that is spreading that information. And on each of those people, there's made a tree. And they lose their access. All the way down -- this is according to -- look it up at the Or org. Would you look it up, which one is it. But look it up at the main page of the World Economic Forum. It was there at least last week. Where they were talking about making a tree that would -- I mean, 7 degrees from Kevin Bacon. If this happened with this guy, I guarantee you, it's only a matter of time, before they get my name or your name. Because it trees out. And the World Economic Forum says that it's not enough to get the problem, that is manifesting itself on social media.

They need to see where that idea originally came from. Because they now need to silence ideas, before they get into the bloodstream of the population.

If that's not terrifying, especially coupled with this, that is actually happening. And you have a chance of stopping this. But you won't have that chance to stop these kinds of things. Look at how hard it is to get your name off of a No Fly List. You're on there -- you're on there by mistake. Look how long it took people to get their names off of no fly lists. You can't even find out from the government, if you're on it or off it. What the status is. Or why you're on it or off it.

STU: Yeah. In fact, one of the things that came up in this investigation. They said, well, we've also flagged a video from six months ago.


STU: And we thought that was problematic too.

He's like, well, what video? They're like, well, we're not going to give you access to it. So he can't even defend the video that he supposedly had on his phone.

GLENN: You can't -- you have a right to face your accuser.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: But that's only in governmental law. Back in just a second.

I don't know about you. But I tend to think, that I can immediately tell quality work when I see it. Taking and buying and selling homes, for example. You know the quality work, you know when somebody is going beyond the job that they just have to do. And they love their job. And they're excellent at it. This is a free service to you. To find the people that we think are the best real estate agents, with the best track record. And the -- and the best work ethic in your area. It's Free service to you. You just go there. Say where you are. If you're selling or buying. And if you're moving across the country, or across the street, we'll find the real estate agents, that can help you.
(OUT AT 9:49AM)

GLENN: This is the Glenn Beck Program. Back to John Solomon. John, I'm sorry to call you back.

JOHN: No problem.

GLENN: I just needed one more question from you. We were talking about the FBI and the warrant and what happened to Donald Trump. I have been hearing from Congress, that they're seeing tons of whistle-blowers come forward. And that gives me kind of hope. You're in a position to know, are we seeing whistle-blowers, and is it -- and is it more than just one or two?

JOHN: Yes, it is. That's a great question. And it's true. We've been writing a lot about it at Just The News. Fourteen separate different Justice Department and FBI whistle blowers, including at least one in the very senior ranks, have come forward to either Congressman Jim Jordan in the House or Senator Chuck Grassley in the Senate, and their allegations were, as we were discussing earlier in the show, that there was this politicization particularly in the Washington field office, where the current raid was conducted by -- the two examples that Chuck Grassley has put out there, that is very clear. An analyst wrote a document, trying to take legitimate evidence against Hunter Biden. And claimed it was disinformation that caused a part of the Hunter Biden investigation. Temporarily closed down in the election. That's one example of a bad politicization going on in the FBI. According to the whistle-blowers. The other is the same office, the Washington field office, opened an investigation on Donald Trump. Not the one we're talking about now, but an earlier one. Without having a proper predicate, meaning there wasn't evidence, much like the case in Russia --

GLENN: Jeez.

JOHN: -- to open up. That's what these guys are talking about, these men and women that are coming forward. Fourteen of them, you're right on the money, Glenn.

GLENN: So that's a good sign. We're seeing more than usual. It's not just maybe the political guys on the other side.

JOHN: Yes. No. I think this is right. This is a greater heartburn among career people.

GLENN: Good. Thank you for that. John, I appreciate it. God bless. John Solomon, of course, is the CEO and editor of chief of Just The News, which is a news site you should go to every day and check the news. That's good news. And, again, I want to encourage anyone -- anyone at any level, if you're seeing it in your city level -- you're seeing it to the FBI level, the NSA, CIA. Please, whistle-blow. We need to know good guys are in there.

Don’t Believe the LIES: 9 Stories That Reveal How CRAZY Things Have Become

Don’t Believe the LIES: 9 Stories That Reveal How CRAZY Things Have Become

Something just isn’t right about what our country has become, and we all know it. Glenn reviews 9 stories that reveal how crazy things have gotten. New York City, for one, is facing crisis after crisis, including inflation, illegal immigration, and crime. When entire hotels are being rented out to house migrants, Glenn argues that we should stop and ask, WHO is paying for that?! And when there’s a horse running on a highway in Philadelphia, maybe it’s time to just completely rethink the direction we’re heading in …


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: I saw this last night, and I thought, can you play it? There it is. Yeah.

Now, that's somebody with their phone. Outside of their window, on the driver's side, going, I can't -- I can't -- am I seeing this. I have to film this. Because I don't think anyone has ever seen that before.

STU: Keeping up nicely with traffic though. Those were quick animals.

GLENN: Yes. Yeah, I think that was an expensive -- well, it was -- it's that close to Philadelphia.

You know, you don't keep one in a walkup. You know, a park -- you know --

STU: That would be a strange choice.

GLENN: It would a strange choice.

STU: But, again, you also don't keep it on the highway. So who knows what's going on?

GLENN: Right. Right.

I mean, how did they find the onramp? It's a horse. How did they find the onramp?

STU: Really fascinating.

GLENN: There's a lot of questions on that one, but I don't think we're going to get to them.

Now, let me show you some of the other things.

And let's see if you can tie together, what I'm driving at.

Okay. There is a method to the madness on the things I'm going to show you.

These things I just saw last night.

This isn't like, yeah. Well, I saw this a month ago.

I've been saying.

These are things, that I spent 20 minutes, just scrolling, going, wow.

That one. That one.


Let's so on let's start with cut 12, please.

GLENN: All the New Yorkers in New York City, please, pay attention to what I'm about to say.

I know this morning got a list from my controller, to tell us the tax annual assessments and values. This happens every January to February. I got mine. Just on a few of our properties, just a few of them, every single one of them are going up. Some of them are going up ten to 15 percent. All the way up to 60, 75 percent. You have no clue what this means to this industry.

Now have clue, what this means to every average New Yorker.

Everybody in New York City, is affected.

Because I have stores here, supermarkets. $12,000. $14,000. I have -- I have small three-family buildings, renting them. Going up $9,000. Increase on top of the 30 thousands that I'm paying.
GLENN: That's crazy. That's crazy. Okay.

So everybody is paying a lot more. That's weird.

Cut -- cut 13. This is one about the hotels in New York.

VOICE: Here is the hotel.

VOICE: This is one of the hotels as transformed into the shelter.

VOICE: We will walk in there. And see what kind of operation they're running inside.

VOICE: Really nice hotel.

VOICE: How is it going?

VOICE: Oh, yeah. We're just checking in on the hotel. There's a ton of people in here.

GLENN: Because it's a shelter.


VOICE: Migrants going in?

VOICE: Yeah. It's no longer --

VOICE: How many floors is this?

VOICE: Thirty floors.

GLENN: Thirty.

Is it full? Yeah.

VOICE: You guys aren't allowed to talk about it? Why do you think it's a big secret, Duke?

GLENN: I don't know. We just follow orders.

VOICE: They signed the contract with an outside source, saying they will pay them rent, in order for them to house the migrants. And the hotels love it because it is guaranteed money every single night. And that array of $200 per night at the hotel.

And with 1,331 rooms, that is $260,000 a day. $1.8 million a week. And $7.2 million a month.

GLENN: Okay. $7.2 million a month.

For one hotel.



Who is -- who is writing that check again?

Isn't that kind of important?

Who is writing that check?

One month, 7.2 million dollars.

Oh, that makes me understand the -- the other guy, who is like, look at our assessment on our buildings.

Bada bing.

Up 75 percent tax.

Bada bing.

Okay. All right.

So can we just play the horse running town, just because I need -- oh, there he is.

Running down.

Now let me show you, can we take cut six, please.

Cut six.

VOICE: Some of those suburban areas.

Are having double-digit car thefts with be in a week.

Sometimes in a day. People are stealing tires at a record rate. There's no consequences, accountability, repercussions.

GLENN: Hmm. Hmm. And there's problems CNN said with homelessness. Cut seven please.

VOICE: The number of people experiencing homelessness in a single night. Went up 12 percent in a single night in 2023.

In part, because COVID programs preventing evictions and housing losses came to an end.

A quarter of those people were unhoused for the first time in their lives.

VOICE: How many people fell into homelessness during COVID.

VOICE: Before COVID, there were probably about 20 or 30,000 people. Now it's 46,000.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Here is -- here, I think this is Curtis. Just standing on third avenue. Which when I lived in New York.

You can't -- you can't stand in the middle of the street.

Here he is on third Avenue.

VOICE: This is something you'll never see in the middle of the day. Third Avenue in New York City.

This is the future. When everybody leaves and heads to Florida.

They're on the way to Texas. Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina.

Look. So what do we have here?

Because they've all fled the city. And it will only be a city of criminals. Emotionally disturbed migrants. I am Nostradamus. I see what's coming in 2024. Vast sea of emptiness.

GLENN: Well, that's good. That's good.

So let's see, we have too many migrants coming in.

More migrants, the collection of migrants that have been added to our country in the last three and a half years. Equal the population.

Of 38 states in America.

Equal or above the population of 38 -- we only have 50 states. I just want you to know that.

We only have 50.

38 of them are now smaller, than the people we have let in.

That's into -- I mean, I mean -- that's interesting.

And then we have some really, really.

I mean, we have some real problems. And I'm glad that we're dealing. What are we focused on.

Go ahead.

VOICE: The whom who runs the bullying account, lives of TikTok. Was given a spot on the Oklahoma library board. The statewide board.

She is not from --

GLENN: Now, could I just stop for a second.

This is a man in a dress.

Who clearly has --

STU: You don't like him.

GLENN: I don't. I don't. I think it's a little. And you might want to shave just a little bit. And the low cut tress there is nice. But if we know maybe you would shave just -- anyway, this guy is having a serious conversation, about what's acceptable in the library. And people are just watching it and going, well, he's making a good point.

He's not -- how!

Play the damn horse, running down the --

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: How about this one?

Cut 17.

VOICE: I've seen this question. My problem is, I'm too hot. I'm too successful in my career. I make too much money. I have too many amazing friends and family. Too many cute clothes. Do you know how hard it is, to choose an outfit each day?

People sliding into my DMs every day.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. It's a man with boobs. It's a woman with a beard. I don't -- I have -- I don't know.

STU: They never had to deal with problems like that. They're too hot. People slipping into your DMs. This person has to deal with that every day.

GLENN: Do you know how hard it is to pick out a set of clothes every day?

No. I have no idea. I wear the same clothes. I have been wearing them since the third grade.

What the hell is wrong with you?

I swear to you, I mean, this story makes more sense than any other story I've seen today.

Oh, wow. Look, a horse running down a highway in Philadelphia.

When that becomes, eh.

STU: That's the most sensible story we've talked about in this segment. Sometimes horses run county the highway.

GLENN: Now, I would just like to point out. And maybe I've been in a coma. So I don't remember it. Sometimes you won't remember a coma. And you're all being nice, and you're like, don't say anything to him. He's forgotten he's been this a coma for 400 years. And we were in -- I don't know. Some freezer.

I don't know how this happened. But maybe I've been in a coma. But from where I'm sitting, none of this is normal.

May we just all take a moment and go, none of this is normal!

This is not the way a civilization behaves.

Am I alone on this?

I don't --

STU: Apparently so.

GLENN: Apparently, I --

STU: Apparently so. By the way, the horse is okay.

GLENN: The horse is --

STU: Yeah. The horse is okay.

GLENN: That would be the thing. Out of this monologue. Somebody -- well, what happened to the horse?

STU: I was --

GLENN: It's those damn cars, and those SUVs. I don't know what they're doing there. They're killing the planet. Have you heard about the big umbrella that we want to put in space?

Don't put big umbrellas in space. Are you out of your minds?

Oh, man. I just -- if I was in a coma, I want the doctors to know, put me back into the coma, please.

Why Trump’s Civil Fraud Charges Should HORRIFY Every Business

Why Trump’s Civil Fraud Charges Should HORRIFY Every Business

Former president Donald Trump has warned the state of New York that businesses will flee if the civil fraud charges levied against him aren’t overturned. But New York’s governor has promised that other businesses have nothing to worry about. So, is there cause for concern? Former investment banker Carol Roth joins Glenn to explain why this ruling should be “horrifying for everybody who is in business.” Plus, she addresses whether conservatives should celebrate as progressive organizations appear to backtrack on their woke agendas, or whether this is all an election season ploy.


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Carol Roth, a former New York Wall Street banker, who, you know, woke up and went, what am I -- am I on the wrong side.

And she has done an awful lot of good. She's the author now, of, you will own nothing. Former investment banker. I have her on, because I want to talk to her about BlackRock's new voting system.

But she has a couple of things I want to let you know.

First, she has a new newsletter out. Sign up for it.

Carol, I wanted to start with you, because you are a former New York investment banker.

What is the fallout going to be on this Donald Trump conviction and 355 million dollar fine?

Never been done before, not even with the Gambino crime family they never did this.

CAROL: Yeah. Okay. So just to be correct, San Francisco investment banker, because I don't want to lump myself with all of those New York investment bankers.

GLENN: Like that's any better.

CAROL: So the complications of this are horrifying for everybody who is in business.

When you think about presenting your company in the best light, whether it is a startup firm, a venture Capitol firm.

A private equity firm.

Real estate holdings.

Any publicly or privately held company, that has adjusted EBITA.

They are saying, here's what we think the business is. But we will put this in the best light.

And what this particular judgment has done, in my opinion, has said, even if somebody hasn't gotten hurt.

Even if the bank that you presented this to.

Or the investor said, hey, we made a ton of money. We're not a counterparty to this suit.

That the state can come in and say, well, we don't think this is right. We've done our own calculations. We see that you have some numbers that you got wrong here, and we are going to charge you with fraud civilly. Not criminally. Civilly.

And then put in some insane judgment, that is basically like sitting your finger in there. And seeing which way the wind blows. Because there is no actual damages.

The bank has said, that they were not victimized, that they made a ton of these.

And so who really is the counterparty here.

They are saying, there is some ill-gotten gain. They made this up.

And this has an incredibly disturbing implication, for any business.

If this is the standard, then basically, I would say, every business in the United States, somebody needs to be thrown in jail. And assessed hundreds of millions of dollars.

Because this happens throughout all business.

GLENN: Well, I will tell you, if Elon Musk were still in California, I bet he would be shaking in his boots. Because if this can happen in New York, it can happen in California.

And they're already going after him, with all kinds of stuff. Even if you're on the right side currently, if your company ever falls against the state, on anything, you're opening yourself for the end.

I mean, how -- how much of an impact will this have, on businesses being and locating themselves in New York?

CAROL: Well, that's the interesting question. Because everybody thinks that it can't happen to them.

Oh, it's Donald Trump. He's done all of these things that we've heard about in the media. This can never happen to me. And there's a lot of ego and a lot of hubris, particularly with the financial services and other companies that are based in New York City.

We have seen some level of exodus based on crime, taxes. And other decisions.

Obviously, the ones who have been savvy, have already gotten out of there. Started to decouple from New York.

But I think the -- when something like this happens, they see this big personality, and they say, it can't happen to me.

But why not?

Why can't it happen to you?

If you go against whatever the narrative is.

If you go against the state. And, you know, you say something, that they don't like. This is -- you know, as we've talked about before. Sort of a soft form of social credit.

You are not aligned with what we want. So we will find ways to penalize you, financially.

GLENN: It's terrible.

CAROL: And it is absolutely terrifying.

GLENN: All right. So let me talk to you here. We have about six minutes here to talk about this.

CAROL: Okay.

GLENN: Justin Haskins. Who is my cowriter of my book.

We talk about ESG and all of this stuff. All the time.

Go back and forth.

He's much -- if you think I'm a pessimist.

He's more of a pessimist.

He wrote to me the other day. Glenn, this is great news.

The Europe ESG collapse. And now companies are getting out. Even BlackRock says they're getting out of it.

And I said, whoa. Whoa. Whoa, whoa.

We're entering the time of an election. And this is also what every progressive institution does.

They are exposed.

Oh, we're not going to do that with your gas stove.

And then they do it, anyway, in another form.

Are you -- I mean, we should celebrate that we have them on the ropes. But we believe so let the pressure up. We have to pursue them.

Because they're trying to make an escape.

CAROL: Yeah. I think this is the absolute perfect analogy. And I know Justin and we have conversations offline as well about all this stuff.

And I do think there are a lot of things to celebrate.

Because of the work that you and Justin have done, Glenn.

Your audience has done in raising awareness.

Some of these state level leadership. We are seeing a lot of shifts happening. You know, we saw JPMorgan. Pimco. State Street. All extract themselves from the climate 100-plus pledge, which is basically financial institutions. Cracking down on companies. And trying to push them into this ESG, these directives. And so we just saw that happen this week. And part of that is because they are afraid of the legislation, and -- and being hit with lawsuits. In fact, BlackRock, which shifted from the US being part of it. To just Europe being part of it.

Within -- they cited lawsuits. Potential lawsuits, as one of the concerns. So this is -- come from The New York Times. Main Street media. They are concerned, but it's not fluff.

And, you know, that goes back to this new BlackRock voting initiative. Proxy voting initiative.

Where they don't want to be the ones to take the blame. And say, well, we're not pushing this. You're voting for it.

Instead of, you know, going ahead, and giving you the ultimate choice on how to vote.

They will give you options. But of their options, almost all of them has to do -- I know this will shock you, Glenn. With climate or climate impact. Or environment.

Social responsibility.

GLENN: Wow. So I could have Soviet communism, Chinese communism, or --

CAROL: Or North Korean.

GLENN: Or North Korean communism. But I can choose. I can choose. Wow. That's quite a choice.

CAROL: Yeah. And it's -- I was going to say --

GLENN: Go ahead.

CAROL: I was going to say. The way they're doing it is obviously, they've been paying attention to your program. Because they're trying to really manipulate you in one direction or another.

They have this one choice, that's called the ISS Catholic faith-based policy.

So you're going, oh, okay. That's great. That's going to be aligned potentially with my rales. And patriotic values. But what they say is, quote, it's aligned with social responsibility. And quote, the active ownership. And investment philosophies of -- I'm sorry. Broadly consistent with the objectives of socially responsible shareholders, as well as the teachings of Catholicism and Christianity.

And then they talk about social, environmental impact. That they're going along with the social and environmental philosophies of Catholic-based teaching.

GLENN: That's unbelievable.

STEPHEN: They're really trying to make sure you don't read this. And say, oh, this will be aligned with my values.

They're just pushing in a different way to manipulate you. So now they can say you're the (inaudible).

GLENN: Unbelievable. So damn evil.

CAROL: It is.

GLENN: I am looking at all of the things that are happening. Like the farmers. You know, that's -- that's kind of calmed down now over in Europe. Because the politicians said, you know what, you're right. You're right. We're not going to push those things. We're going to hold. We're going to hold. There's an election coming up this summer. But after the election, we'll bring that back up. And I think you're right.

And I think the farmers might be dumb enough to think they won. But they didn't win.

You cannot -- this is like -- any good war strategy.

You cannot let them regroup. Fall back and regroup someplace else. You must pursue them, at some point.

Because they're going to keep doing it over and over. They'll just pop up someplace else, or under a different name. Or another new way to manipulate, the reality.

And you have to -- if you don't pursue them, you have to start all over again.

CAROL: Yeah. So the farmers have obviously been very brave. And they've been leading the way.

And, yeah. I think they may have won the battle. But they haven't won the war. There was an article that came out in the Financial Times this morning. About here in the US.

About the amount of investment dollars that keeps increasing, in terms of buying up farmland. And that the average age of farmers here in the United States is 58.

I would imagine that there are similar demographics than issues going on around the world.

So they may be placating and saying, we will drop this.

But we know through the fight against natural asset companies. You know, some of these other proposals that are coming to the table. And things they're moving around. That they're finding other ways to achieve their objectives. I think the good news is, is that we are having an impact. Whether it's the farmers. Whether it's the listeners here, using their voice.

But I know it seems exhausting. But you've got to devote some part of every week, to advocacy. Because we're in a situation, where -- like you said, you cannot let up there. On the ropes. If you let them get that second win, they will come back and go back at you, with some jabs and a right hook.

GLENN: Carol Roth. Thank you so much.

God bless. We'll talk to you again soon. Carol Roth. The author of, you will own nothing.

She also has her new newsletter out.

This Presidential List Reveals A LOT About "The Experts"

This Presidential List Reveals A LOT About "The Experts"

For President’s Day 2024, the Presidential Greatness Project asked a list of “presidential experts” to rank all past and present American presidents — and the final list reveals a lot about what these “experts” really value. Glenn, Pat, and Stu review the list, which predictably ranked Abraham Lincoln 1st. But the list quickly devolves into a celebration of progressive presidents who expanded the federal government’s powers: “Everyone they like wanted a dictatorship,” Glenn says. And of course, the “experts” weren’t big fans of Donald Trump …


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Well, the presidential greatness ratings and rankings are finally in.

Yes. Yes. The -- the president and executive politics section of the American political of science association, which is the foremost organization of Social Security science experts in presidential politics, as well as super, super smart scholars, who are much more smart than you are, tummy.

They published a peer-reviewed academic research in key-related scholarly journals and academic presses, and 525 respondents were invited to participate.

Here we have, the best presidents ranked in order.

PAT: 525 were asked. I think 100 --

GLENN: Fifty-four.

PAT: 154, actually.

GLENN: Usable responses were received. In other words, there were some that --

STU: They used all of those.

GLENN: All right. So number one, Abraham Lincoln.

Don't think we can argue with that. He's in the top five.

STU: Yeah. Top five.

PAT: For sure. This has I don't know if I would put him one.

GLENN: Who would you put as one?

STU: Probably Washington.

GLENN: I would too.

STU: That's not a knock on Lincoln.

PAT: No.

GLENN: But Washington was the one who demonstrated how to use power. How to get rid of power. How to go home.

STU: Set the tone.

GLENN: The two terms thing is all because of him.

He is -- he is -- but he is a reluctant president, just like Michelle Obama.

Okay. So they have --

STU: Still? Where they still have -- number one is Lincoln. Number two is Franklin Roosevelt.

PAT: This is unbelievable. Stop it.

STU: It's completely --

PAT: FDR is one of the absolute worse. He's bottom five. Bottom five for sure.

GLENN: Well, if you'll notice the pattern here as we go on. The pattern is, the scholar seems to love those who you can't get past. You can't get past Lincoln. You can't get past Washington. You can't throw them into the dustbin. But they want to. They want to.

PAT: They want to.

GLENN: And so if you look at the pattern of everyone that doesn't make sense, it's because they fundamentally changed our systems.

PAT: Uh-huh, where FDR fundamentally changed. We were this close to a dictatorship.

Mussolini said he's cut from our cloth. Hitler said, he's cut from our cloth. He's going for this great state, so FDR.

So then number three is Washington.

Under FDR --

STU: That's -- that's insanity.

PAT: Madness.

GLENN: By the way, FDR, huge racist. Huge racist.

Did not invite, what's his name? The runner?

Jesse Owens. Didn't invite him.

Only metal winner, not invited. The biggest. And most important -- wasn't invited.

STU: Of all time.

GLENN: Let's see. So Washington. Then Theodore Roosevelt. Another progressive.

PAT: Come on. Jeez.

STU: Like Theodore Roosevelt. Does not even belong anywhere close to the top of this list.

PAT: No.

STU: You mentioned this a million times. Obviously, the man started the Progressive Party.

Of course they love him. But still --

GLENN: Massive eugenist.

STU: You can say he did incredible things in his life, but as a person. Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. But what did he do?

What did he do as president? What is he most famous for doing as president?

STU: He was -- well, he really like, continued what -- what Wilson was doing, who is coming up soon in the countdown. But continued that move. In a way to -- to make progressivism the -- the homespun philosophy.

GLENN: But as a president. As a president, he's responsible for the national parks.

He's -- he's responsible --

STU: Why is that seen as some big accomplishment?

Hey, we fenced off a bunch of grass!

What a -- remember the Ken burns documentary. The slogan for that documentary was America's greatest accomplishment. What are you talking about?

The guy put a bunch of -- what?

Fences around grass where animals can stay.

PAT: Well, there's gates too, so you can pay to get ahead. Don't forget about that.

STU: Wow. What a thing. What a thing.

I mean, how many medical innovations have we created? We've saved the world how many times?

Well, gosh. Well, they put those park benches out there.

That was really a good thing that America did. Hey, look, picnic tables!

GLENN: Again, look at the two.

We have Lincoln and Washington. We understand. Okay?

Roosevelt and Roosevelt, they're both progressives. They're both progressives.

PAT: Really bad.

GLENN: They're all about state power.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Then Jefferson.

Another one you got to go, well, okay.

You wrote the Declaration of Independence. I think this is kind of a big deal. Then Truman.

STU: Again, we should point out. All these people are saying, oh, well, we have to throw them in.

Are also the people that I guarantee, some of these historians. If you look at their Twitter tedious. Would be advocating for the tearing down of their statues.

PAT: Oh, for sure.

STU: Like I guarantee you, 2020, go back and look at their George Floyd feeds at the time, as they were encouraging Washington and Jefferson. The statues to come down.

GLENN: Washington, Jefferson. And Lincoln.

STU: And Lincoln is maybe the hardest argument to make on that one. But still.

GLENN: They wanted to bring it down in Washington, DC.

STU: Ben Franklin, they wanted to bring down his statues.

PAT: Harry Truman is a surprise too. Since he dropped the bomb on Japan.

GLENN: Not only, he's the guy that said yes to Israel.

PAT: Yeah, right.

GLENN: So, I mean, I'm shocked at him.

Then number seven, Obama.

PAT: That's incredible. Nine places since last time.

STU: Just stupid, just stupid.

PAT: It's asinine.

GLENN: You know why?

Michelle Obama for president. Who is losing a thousand dollars?

STU: Stop trying to take my money. I just want a push.

That's all I want. Is a push.

We need Gavin Newsom or somebody, to be the nominee. So I don't have to pay a thousand dollars.

Then Eisenhower. Now, Eisenhower oversaw the building of the industrial military complex.

PAT: Yeah. But he bashed it, at the end.

STU: That one speech.

GLENN: He said, we just built it. You will have to deal with this. Be afraid.

PAT: I put this thing together for you, that you will have to deal with the rest of America's existence.

But look out for it! Because it's really powerful and bad.

GLENN: Right. So look what we have. We have Obama, built giant government. Eisenhower, giant government. Then number nine, LB Johnson.

PAT: This is incredible. That might be the biggest abomination of them all. Number nine. A top ten president.

STU: He is legitimately, within the conversation, for the worst president of all time.

PAT: No question.

STU: It's in the conversation.
Now, you might say Woodrow Wilson. And I probably will lean that way. But if you want to come up with -- we need to do -- we need to get all the Blaze people to give us the top five presidents of all time.

Because LBJ, to me, is on that list. If he's not number one worst of all time, he's in the top two or thee.

GLENN: It's Wilson. I'm not going to rank them. Wilson is number one in all of them.

STU: Of course.

GLENN: It's Wilson. Obama. LBJ.

STU: Biden. Where Biden -- Biden might be number one or two now.

PAT: Yeah. For sure.

GLENN: It's Jackson. Andrew Jackson.

STU: I would put Carter in the conversation for that.

GLENN: Carter. But Carter is almost like a hapless dupe compared to these guys.

STU: But still! That's really bad.

GLENN: He started the Department of Education. So he built the -- look at -- everyone they like, wanted a dictatorship.

All of them!

They didn't call it that. But that's what they wanted. They built this Deep State. Then Kennedy is at number ten.

He's up four, which I find interesting.

Because Kennedy is probably the only one that couldn't -- wouldn't be allowed in the Democratic Party now. All the ones we just mentioned, they would still love.

Kennedy, no way.

Kennedy wanted to break up the military industrial complex. Kennedy cut taxes like nobody's business!

I mean, he was practically Ronald Reagan in comparison.

Then -- then James Madison comes in after Truman, Eisenhower, Obama, Johnson.


Come on. Come on.

GLENN: James Madison.

PAT: Yeah. The guy who wrote the US Constitution.

Let's put him 11th.

STU: Behind a guy who created a bunch of programs that are completely bankrupting us.

PAT: Yes.

STU: Like we are all aware as to why we are going to soon be spending a trillion dollars a year, in just interest, but LBJ.

Ah, yeah, the good thing, the redeeming quality, he was an incredible racist. And he was a drunk driver. Let's put him number nine.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Number nine.

Then after Madison. Then comes Bill Clinton.

Then comes John Adams.

STU: Clinton. Wait.

GLENN: Then comes Biden. This has so we have -- accused rapist. Followed by -- and Biden at 14, is -- look, I don't know.

PAT: So outrageous.

STU: The Barack Obama thing is so expected. It didn't surprise me at all, right?

GLENN: You do have to say. There is -- there is, at this point, with historians.

There is, you know, kind of a magic around him. Because he was America's second black president.

STU: Right. Ahead of the first black president.

GLENN: Yeah. It's weird.

STU: But you kind of understand.

The reason you see bias in these things is always big. Like Biden being there is not all that shocking because of its recency bias.

Obama, I'm expecting.

And the end of this, of course, everyone already knows is Trump last.

Which is also probably one of the recency bias. Right? Once the next president gets in that is a Republican, they will all say, he's even worse than Trump.

We all know that will happen on these lists.

But it's like, the -- the Obama thing.

Okay. First black president. Like, they got their Obamacare. There are things they know they will like. What on earth argument is there, with Joe Biden. With a 37 percent approval rating, to be the 14th greatest president of all time?

GLENN: You're not going to.

STU: It's absurd.

GLENN: The rest of the list is not going to improve your mood.

By the way, tomorrow, I will have a poll ready. With all the presidents.

And you just rank them. Okay? If you don't know who they are.

Because like Polk. I don't know. What did Polk do?

PAT: Mexican-American war.

GLENN: Okay. So he's bad.

STU: By the way, it's also Tuesday. This would be James K. Polk Tuesdays, just pointing that out.

GLENN: Hayes. Rutherford B. Hayes. What did he do?

PAT: All kinds of things.

STU: Are you guys into Chester B. Arthur?

GLENN: Yeah, there are some -- we will cut the list down. Okay?

PAT: Just eliminating Chester A. Arthur.

GLENN: No. I'll leave them all in there for judges. Like, I don't know.

PAT: Is he a Republican or Democrat? Whatever.

STU: Seems best five worse. Best five worse.

GLENN: I like to see top ten. Bottom ten. Okay. We'll do that.

Truckers Explain Why They’re BOYCOTTING New York and Standing With Donald Trump

Truckers Explain Why They’re BOYCOTTING New York and Standing With Donald Trump

New York has charged former president Donald Trump $355 million for allegedly inflating the value of his properties in order to defraud banks (despite ZERO banks losing any money). But truckers across the country have decided to protest the ruling by boycotting New York City and even New York state. Glenn spoke with some of the truckers and their message was clear: “Under no circumstances will I cross that bridge again.”


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: One of the best things I've heard in a long time. And I would love to talk to truckers. If you're a trucker, and you would love to participate in this.

Not going to ask your name. Just call us up

If you're one of the truckers that are refusing now to drive to New York City after the $355 million fraud ruling on Donald Trump.

A conservative social media influencer, a trucker who goes by Chicago Ray, posted a video clip in which he claims some of his colleagues will stop making deliveries to New York City to protest the ruling.

I've been on the radio, talking to drivers for the past hour. And I've talked to ten drivers. And they are going to start refusing loads to drivers, starting on Monday.

So does that include any drivers that are listening to me now?

Rob, you're a truck driver in Pennsylvania. Do you deliver much to New York City?

CALLER: Well, I delivered -- about a month ago, I delivered eight times to the Five Boroughs.

GLENN: Okay. And are you going to continue to do it?

CALLER: No, sir. I've already told my dispatch that under no circumstances, will I be crossing that bridge again. I won't go into New York State, much less the city.

GLENN: Wow. So what was dispatch's reaction to that?

Did you get any heat?
CALLER: No. I actually got, oh, another one.

It seems like, about -- between 20 and 25 percent of our drivers have refused to go into taking any loads into New York City anymore.

GLENN: Now, will that make a difference? 25 percent?

CALLER: The thing is, I work for a multi-national company. Huge company. And they will resort to using outside drivers and paying more.

Roger in Alabama. Hello, Roger.

CALLER: Yeah. Hey, I drove into the city, probably a couple times a week, delivering fresh seafood from the gulf. From Louisiana and Alabama and Mississippi. And for me, to drive into New York City, it's a pain.

But it pays well. But so, I'm not going to do that anymore. And as far as being able to recoup the loss, you know, for -- from what I will be able to find. Going anywhere.

I will book my own freight. Finding loads are easy.

Some of the other drivers I could talk about. Is the -- the drivers that are coming around have no experience, that are willing to drive into the city -- who will have a terrible time. I mean, being in New York City, if a bunch of independent truck drivers start doing this, New York City will pitch a fit real quick. But it really won't hurt the trucking industry you know, at all. Because there's such a demand for drivers. And experienced drivers who are independent who run their own truck and run their own business, they won't have a problem.

GLENN: I have to tell you.

CALLER: If we can survive the fuel problem, a couple years ago, we can survive this.

GLENN: I have to tell you, if you don't know -- if you've never driven in New York City, especially with an 18 wheeler, you are screwed.

I mean, it is really tough to get around. I don't know how you guys do it in New York.

I really don't.

CALLER: Well, some of the new inexperienced guys, they can't. That's just it. They cannot do it. They just can't. They're crashing into bridges and turning up neighborhoods. They just can't do it.

I have known some people that had 5 and 10 years of experience have trouble driving through the city. It's not easy. But it can be done. But it's not going to be done by me anymore. Just like California. I don't take loads to California. And pretty much -- the northeast. Sorry, I ain't doing them.

GLENN: Good for you.

So, Roger, what is the feel on how many will take, to be able to affect New York?

CALLER: I don't know of a number of how many of it will take. But the length of times, will surely take effect. Even if they still get goods into New York City, by some of the drivers, it will cost a lot of money. It will cost a lot of money. First, they will feel a loss of -- because, one, it's not just groceries. It's everything that is sold in a store, that comes into New York City, on a truck.

GLENN: Yeah. I know. Yep. Yep.

All right. Thank you so much, Roger.

Let me go to Scott in Massachusetts. Hey, Scott.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn. First time, long time.

GLENN: Thank you.

CALLER: Hey, yeah. I'm not going to New York City. Cost hundred some odd bucks. I think it's $130 across the bridge. And I can look down through the potholes and see traffic on the layer below. And you get in there. The last time I made a delivery there, I got a -- it was in Manhattan. And I -- my truck takes up six parking spaces. And I haul construction materials.

So they will take it up to the top of the building, right? To the roof. Styrofoam insulation.

So they told me, hey. Park on the side of the road, in Manhattan. I had to double park.

So the cops came along, gave me a ticket. 250-dollar ticket for parking. $250 for blocking the bike lane.

I'm like, what the heck? So the same thing happens in DC.

They'll, actually -- I've dealt with the FBI and the police. And they say, just move up somewhere else.

And it's -- you know, it's no problem there. So, yeah. No. I don't need to go to New York. You'll get the scrubs and the dudes that haven't done it, haven't been working a lot of time in there. And let's be honest, that will be even better.

GLENN: Yeah. It will.

CALLER: Because those guys can't turn or back up. So you will have accidents. You are going to have traffic tied up. You have guys who can't back up or can't turn.

You know, this is their first car. Let them have them. You know.

GLENN: Scott, thank you very much.

Yeah. Let me go to Jason. Jason you're in Maine?

CALLER: Yeah. I'm on the way to -- as we speak, I have a load of lumber on. Going over to Byron off 84 right by Fishkill. But I -- ever since day one, since I started driving a truck, I never -- I refused to go to New York City. It's a big pain. But I have been looking at this, and trying to figure out if there's any truth to it. But I couldn't wait for this morning to listen to you, to see.

A lot of times, you'll hear things like this. You don't know how much truth to it is.

But I'm a 100 percent Trump supporter, and I have no shame in admitting it. And I have not bringing this truck. That's a blessing, being owner and operator. I don't have to take any loans, if I don't want to.

GLENN: Good for you.

CALLER: Like the other guys -- the other guys, sometimes they don't have an option. It's their only job.

It will hopefully make an impact. And hopefully will make a statement, that, you know, hey. We're not going to tolerate this. Because something needs to be done, Glenn.

Jay in Ohio. Hello, Jay.

CALLER: Hey, how is it going, Glenn?

GLENN: Good.

CALLER: Yeah. Every Monday, I -- I live in the Corpus area. I head to Manhattan. And that's not happening today.

GLENN: Really? And what did -- what did your bosses say?

CALLER: It's funny, because he's very liberal.

But he -- but pretty much everybody in his company is not.

I already told him.

And he kept justifying it. You know, they're doing the whole thing. Where every vehicle crosses over and gets taxed and everything. So it helps out in the long run.

Okay. Cool.

But I obviously wasn't going to do it anyway.

GLENN: So how many people, around you, or in your company, are doing it?

CALLER: There's two other drivers that go to not exactly Manhattan. But they go to Long Island and stuff.

And they're kind of hem-hawing about it, and stuff.

So it's -- but they were not a big company.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: But I've been in this company for ten years. So it is what it is. And I'm like, eh, that's fine.

I have no problem.

GLENN: We have Chris in Georgia. Who, you have been delivering goods to New York City for how long?

VOICE: About 15 years.

GLENN: Fifteen years.

Into the city, or all of New York?

CALLER: All of New York.

GLENN: And what are your thoughts on it today?

CALLER: I'll no longer be going to New York. We're non-force dispatch. I can choose where I go, and I'm going to Georgia instead.

GLENN: So are you hearing this from a lot of -- because I've had one truck driver call in today and say, I was excited to listen to the show today, because I wanted to hear if it was just me and just a handful of people, or if this is a big deal.

CALLER: Well, I hadn't heard about the boycott, until you mentioned it.

GLENN: Really?

CALLER: Yeah. I personally made that decision, when I heard the announcement last week.

But, yeah. It's -- it's not right.

GLENN: No. It's not right. It's not right.

And this, I think is the kind of thing that Martin Luther King would have done.

This is a peaceful protest.

It's all of the individual choosing for themselves. I'm not just -- I'm not going to -- I'm not going to support that kind of activity.

Not doing it.

I commend you for it.

And it shouldn't hurt the truck drivers, at least at first.


Because there's a shortage of truck drivers.

You can drive wherever you want, pretty much, isn't it?

CALLER: Yeah. Yes.

Well, there's -- that's a tough one.

GLENN: There might be more to that.

CALLER: Well, it's -- it's hard to put in a short statement.

But there's people that -- who will -- who will go to New York, even if they don't care about the politics.

They have no intentions of staying in this country.

They're here short-term.

And that's a whole other story.
But personally, you know, this will include points beyond New York.

I will no longer be going to Connecticut, Massachusetts, and loads coming back.

Just, I'm not going to partake in any of it.

I prefer to run to western states. I don't go to California, for the same reasons.

GLENN: How about Colorado?

CALLER: Well, that's a tough one. My company is from there.

GLENN: All right. Hey, thank you very much, Chris. I appreciate it. God bless.

CALLER: Thank you, Glenn.

GLENN: Yeah, I'm interested to see how this works out. I mean, this is a group of people that can make a huge difference.

And we as a population, they know -- we don't ever do anything.

You know, the minute the state says, no. Boys have to go to boys bathrooms. Girls to girls bathrooms.

Which is completely common sense. They go crazy. They boycott the state. It usually has no effect. Truckers, however, can do that. And it will make a difference. Because it's already hard to move goods. And if you're not. Especially until Manhattan.

This is only ten roads in. Ten. And you're a trucker. You I think it's between I think it's 11:00 p.m. or midnight to 5:00 a.m.

And if you're a trucker and you have not driven in New York City, oh, it's going to be a nightmare. A nightmare.

But sending the message, hey. Return to the rule of law. We don't hunt people. We don't -- we don't find a person, and then find the crime.

If there's a crime, so be it. But we don't do it, based on who you are.
