Glenn: America WILL regret falling down ANOTHER slippery slope

Life happens in slow progressions; a nation doesn’t turn to darkness overnight, and Glenn tells a story from World War II that proves it. Now, America may be on the precipice of another, VERY slippery slope…into INSANITY. It's something we can avoid, and it's something we must. ‘In times like these, you need to keep your head and your wit and your common sense,’ Glenn says, ‘and know that others use emergencies and fear in ways that you and our nation will regret in the end…’

What’s Happening in Brazil is EXACTLY What’s Coming to America

Elon Musk is challenging a Brazilian judge who is trying to clamp down on free speech. The judge has demanded that X take down alleged “far right” accounts or face severe punishments in the country … sound familiar? In its attempt to "prevent" a right-wing “dictatorship,” Brazil’s leftist government has created a fascist dictatorship of its own. And allegedly, the United States played a big role. Glenn breaks down the story and warns that what’s happening in Brazil is exactly what’s coming to America: “If we don’t get out and vote, this is our future in America.”

GLENN: Pat, are you following what's going on in Brazil?

PAT: Not terribly closely.

GLENN: Yeah. Okay.

So I haven't either.

And I just started paying attention to it, over the weekend.

Because of Michael Shellenberger.

He did a video that was just incredible.

And very disturbing.

He's talking about the -- you know, the same kind of corruption, that is happening in our government.

Down in Brazil. Where they are stifling the media. But it's much, much worse than that.

Let me give you a couple of things that we have found during our -- during our research.

Listen to this.

This is from the New York Times.

He's Brazil's defender of democracy.

Is he actually good for democracy?

Alexandre De Moraes. A Brazilian Supreme Court justice. Was crucial to Brazil's transfer of power.

But his aggressive tactics are prompting debate. Can one go too far to fight the far right?

Think of that question.

How unbelievable that question is. Of course. And why is it just the right?

When Brazil's highway police began holding up buses full of voters on Election Day, he ordered them to stop.

When right-wing voices spread the baseless claim that Brazil's election is stolen. He ordered them banned from social media. When thousands of right-wing protesters stormed Brazil's halls of power this month, he ordered the officials who had been responsible for securing the buildings, arrested.

Alexandre De Moraes, a Brazilian Supreme Court justice has taken up the mantle of Brazil's lead defender of democracy.

Using a broad interpretation of the court's powers, he has pushed to investigate, prosecute, and as well, silence those on social media. Anyone he deems a menace to Brazil's institutions.

As a result, in the face of antidemocratic attacks from Brazil's former far right president, Bolsonaro and his supporters, Mr. De Moraes cleared the way for the transfer of power.

Many on Brazil's left that made him the man who saved Brazil's young democracy, yet many others in Brazil say he's threatening it. He kind of has a -- hmm. Heavy hand. These are some of the things, according to the New York Times he has done. He has jailed people without trial, for posting threats on social media. He helped sentence a sitting Congressman to nearly nine years in prison for threatening the court.

He has ordered raids on businessmen, with little evidence of wrongdoing. He has suspended an elected governor from his job. He has unilaterally blocked dozens of accounts and thousands of posts on social media, with virtually no transparency and no room for appeal.

In the hunt for justice after the riot, he became further emboldened. His orders to ban prominent voices online, have proliferated. And now he has the man accused of fanning Brazil's extremist flames. Mr. Bolsonaro in his crosshairs.

Last week -- now, remember this is an old New York Times from about two years ago.

De Moraes, included Bolsonaro in a federal investigation of the riot, which she is overseeing, suggesting the former president inspired the violence.

Sound familiar? His moves fit into a broader trend of Brazil's Supreme Court, increasing its power and taking what critics have called a more repressive turn in the process.

So he is -- he is taking extra constitutional powers. Over the weekend, he said, if you don't give me your data, Facebook, Google, and X, on all of the people that are posting. If you don't give that to me, you're banned from being in Brazil.

A judge. So everybody did, except for Elon Musk. Elon Musk said, the guy is a fascist.

Michael Shellenberger is down saying, Brazil is becoming a fascistic dictatorship with this guy in charge.

Now, if you remember, the left was saying Bolsonaro was a dictator. And so now, to prevent the dictator, they have become dictators.

The exact scenario, that we were worried about here, in America. But nobody seems -- nobody really seems to care.

So there's a guy named Mike Benz, who I'll follow and watch from time to time, he had a really good look at this.

He was down, looking at censorship in Brazil. And he said, I found the United States, all over it.

He said, the United States department funded NGOs. And not just State Department funded NGOs. But National Endowment for Democracy is also down there. He said, you had USAID, the National Endowment for Democracy, funding a bunch of domestic censorship groups in Brazil. And he says, it goes back to the beginning of Bolsonaro's reign as president down there in 2019. So the same thing that was happening here with Donald Trump, the United States through NGOs took your tax dollars and started fighting against Bolsonaro.

In June 2019, the Atlantic Council convened a meeting about what to do about the rise of disinformation in Brazil. That was pro-Bolsonaro in nature. What a surprise.

The Atlantic Council panel called election watch in June 2019. Bemoaned the fact that in Brazil, people were paying attention to their own friends, family, and clergy, than they were institutions. Global institutions such as the Atlantic Council, which is a CIA pass through. It has seven CIA directors on its board.

It's annually funded every year by the Pentagon for the State Department. And the National Endowment for Democracy. Which is also a CIA cutout.

In addition to that, a bunch of these university centers in Brazil and civil society groups, get National Endowment for Democracy funding.

So this is the CIA and the State Department, and USA ID, directly funding, in June 29, the censorship apparatus, in Brazil, against Bolsonaro.

In 2019, social media was already censored in Brazil, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube were hit hard bit censors. The same way it did in the United States.

So the Bolsonaro supporters switched to WhatsApp and Telegram to spread their messaging, because they were basically kicked off of Facebook.

Does any of this sound familiar?

This is why one of the biggest audiences for Gab, one of the first free speech alternative platform attempts, was the Brazilian population in 18 and 2019, because they were hit with that first leg of the censorship board.

So what the Atlantic Council and a bunch of these other national endowment for democracy-funded CIA proxies did, is they then targeted WhatsApp and Telegram.

And then promoted these activities, these proxies within Brazil, to put pressure on the Brazilian government to take out WhatsApp and Telegram.

So WhatsApp and Telegram then censored populous supporters. Right-wing populous nationalists. Bolsonaro supporters.

This -- this -- this is the United States government.

He goes on to say, let me ask you something. When has an ally ever threatened major corporations?

American corporations, and said, you will give me this stuff. Or you will be chased out of the country.

Since when doesn't our State Department go down and say, excuse me. Really good friend of Brazil.

We've been there for you, forever. We're helping pay for stuff in your country.

You do not hurt American corporations. You don't tell them, what they can and can't do. When it's in violation of your own doctrines.

PAT: Except that sadly, our American government is behind it.

GLENN: Is behind it.

PAT: Yeah. They're pushing it.

GLENN: It's behind it.

PAT: Yep. Because they're doing the same thing here.

GLENN: Exactly right.

PAT: They can't -- they can't win on the battlefield of ideas. So they have to shut down the battlefield.

GLENN: Correct. And I want you to know, what's happening today in Brazil. The Supreme Court, which was messed with. The Supreme Court now has ultimate power, to do everything. There's no checks or balance there, on the Supreme Court.

So the Supreme Court takes over and says, just, we're going to put people in jail without trial. You don't have a right to speak out. We can tell companies exactly what to do.

And in their hunt for dictators, they have become a dictatorship. That's really important for everyone in America, to understand.

Democracy dies in the darkness. Yet, shut everything down, and keep it real dark.

What's happening in Brazil, is what's coming here if we don't get out and vote.

This is our future, in America.

The Disturbing TRUTH About Biden’s “Job Growth” LIE

The Disturbing TRUTH About Biden’s “Job Growth” LIE

Glenn can’t take Biden’s LIES about “creating jobs” anymore! Biden claims he has created 15 million jobs while in office. But Glenn reads an article by Daniel Horowitz on theblaze.com that breaks down why that’s a massive lie. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Biden only created 2.3-5.5 million jobs when you take out people returning to work after the pandemic. But even that isn’t the full truth. When you account for population growth, illegal immigration, and people taking second jobs to fight inflation, the jobs market is actually DOWN under Biden! So, where does Biden’s 15 million number come from? Glenn reveals the truth …

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: So I can't take it, every time that Joe Biden says, well, we've created 15 million new jobs, since January 2021.

Can't take it. Cannot take it. Why, Pat.

Why did you roll your eyes?

PAT: Well, he didn't create 15 million new jobs. Nowhere near. Those jobs came back after the -- after the COVID situation was over. And people went back to work.

GLENN: Okay. It's much worse than that.

It's much worse than that. I want to give you just the facts. This is compiled in a great story on Blaze media. Just go to Blaze.com. Blaze.com.

Daniel Horowitz writes an unbelievable. This should be sent to everyone you know.

He says, he says, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, publishes two jobs reports. The establishment survey and the household survey.

The establishment survey samples actual employers and shows the growth in nonfarm payroll jobs as well as a breakdown from specific industry. While the household survey, samples individual households.

And measures broad census data. Such as total of employment age population.

Size of labor force. The U3 unemployment rate. And the total of employed and unemployed.

So he always has this talking point, where he says, oh, I created 15 million jobs.

Daniel Horowitz starts with, his talking point about job creation is the ultimate self-indictment.

Listen to this. Getting a precise picture of the US unemployment -- or employment, requires conflating data, from both of those surveys.

Typically, the data compliment each other. But in the last couple of years, the numbers have diverged.

For example, the establishment survey shows 3 million additional people employed, since January 2021.

This may be due in part because the employer-based survey picks up more illegal aliens, than the survey of households.

The White House obviously prefers to tout the establishment survey's figure. In any event, the reality is, Biden has a much worse record on job creation, than Donald Trump.

And that's before we delve into the nature of these jobs. When COVID-19 shut down the world in March 2020, employment cratered.

It took well over a year to come back from the lockdowns and nearly get back to par, with the pre-COVID baseline in February 2020.

As such, the only fair comparison for Biden to make, is to measure the number of employed individuals today, compared to February 2020.

I think that's fair, right?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And not even all jobs. I think it's being generous. Not everybody's job was back by February 2020.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Viewed that way, we don't have 15 million new jobs. We have 5.5 million new jobs created between January 2021 and February of this year.

According to the establishment survey. And just 2.3 million according to the Household Survey. Let's go with the more impressive 5.5 million figure, even though the Philadelphia Fed believes that's overstated.

Although 5.5 million still sounds meaningful. Remember, the country is constantly growing. Since February 2020, the civilian noninstitutional population of working-aged residents grew by 8.1.

I wonder if this is even counting the illegals.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: So job growth has not kept pace with population growth. Especially judging from the household survey.

This is why the civilian labor force participation rate is down, from 63.3 percent. Ahead of the lockdowns to 62.5 percent.

When factoring in population growth, the fact is, we find an additional 729,000 unemployed, individuals, today.

Put another way, 611 out of every 1,000 Americans, of unemployment age, were working before COVID. Compared to 601 today.


PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: Also, an additional 5 million people are no longer in the labor force, but of working age, which means that for whatever reason, they gave up on job -- the job market.

Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell explains these missing workers are the result of excess retirements.

Really? Those are the workers that we're missing. The ones who are ready to retire?

In short, we have a much larger population without jobs than before COVID. Compared to the same period under Trump, the current labor market today is terrible.

After 37 months into Trump's tenure the establishment survey showed 6.7 million jobs created.

But here's the kicker. The population only grew by 5.6 million. Which means the job growth under Trump outpaced population growth by 20 percent.

Under Biden population growth has outpaced job growth by 47 percent. Or 252 percent, going back the household survey.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Okay? Hence by virtue of population growth, alone, we have gone backward in job creation since COVID.

But it get worse. As Daniel Horowitz noted before, we have been losing full-time jobs.

All the net job growth has come from part-time employment. In total, 3.4 million part-time jobs have been added since January 21. With 1.7 million just in the past nine months. This isn't a story of growing economy, of go-getters seeking upward mobility. These are people taking second and third jobs, just to afford the basic standards of living.

In fact, the number of those who have held multiple jobs has surged by 1.6 million since Biden took office.

That's why the establishment survey shows greater job creation.

It is double counting the increasing number of employed people with more than one job.

Also, many of the new jobs are classified as self-employed. Thanks to tax change laws. Tax law changes, it now includes a number of Uber and Lyft drivers. Are records of numbers of people starting their own businesses?

No. These are unemployed, and underemployed people taking nebulous jobs, or struggling workers, forced to take a second gig just to tread water.

Meanwhile, thanks to the endless revisions of the unemployment data, full-time jobs are now down 1.8 million since June of last year.

A large share of the remaining lethargic, full-time job creation has been fueled by government itself.

Over the past year, government employees have -- government employment has doubled the growth rate of the private sector work.

Government jobs have comprised between 21 and 58 percent of all job creation, in the past six employment surveys.

Between 21 on the low end. And 58 percent. 60 percent of all job creation. It takes no skill or ingenuity to print trillions of dollars and create phantom jobs, while saddling consumers with the consequences.

This is perhaps one reason why all the job creation has been concentrated in 15 percent of US counties.

Think of that. All the job creation has been concentrated in 15 percent of US counties.

All of the job growth over the last year, came from just 59 out of 389 metro areas, across America.

They were part-time. They went to foreigners. And 15 percent of the country.

Perhaps the most shocking data point.

I mean, I'm already spinning.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Perhaps the most shocking data point, that nukes the Biden administration's entire job growth narrative. Is the drop in -- since October 2019, native-born US workers. They have actually lost 1.4 million jobs.

Over the same period, foreign-born workers have gained 3 million jobs.

In fact, there has not been a month of net job creation, for native born workers since July 2018.

PAT: Wow!

So -- where do they even get the 15 million figure? Because it's not even from COVID jobs coming back.

GLENN: No. No. The 15 million is with COVID.

At the present million in COVID. 5.5, they say.

PAT: So you add -- when the jobs come back. And then the 5 million they created. That's where they get the 15 million?

GLENN: Yeah. So if you stop after February 2020, or February 21, I can't remember.

When they say, okay. Jobs were come back.

People were going back to work. If you take all those jobs, that people were going back to work in. Okay?

Then you start from there. You only have 5.5.

PAT: But we've had over 8 million new people.

GLENN: Correct. And I don't believe we should call Daniel. I don't believe that counts for the illegals.

PAT: The illegals. Jeez.

GLENN: That's another 10 million.

And the natural-born citizen, not the foreigner.

But the natural-born citizen here, has actually lost employment.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: That employment number is going down.

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: So all of the jobs created are from foreign workers.

Part-time jobs.

Or government jobs. That's not good.

PAT: No.

GLENN: That is not good.

Biden All But DEMANDS a Yellow Star on Jewish-Made Products From the West Bank

The Biden administration is now weighing whether to change the way products made by Jews in Judea and Samaria (AKA the West Bank) are labeled. The rule would force these products to state that they were made in the West Bank, instead of in Israel, allegedly as a way to make boycotting them easier. But who's vote is this buying? Maybe, Glenn says, it's the vote of the pro-Palestinian Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan, who have been organizing anti-American protests featuring chants of "death to America." "We are on the side of evil," Glenn says, if our government continues down this path.

GLENN: Hey, what did I do for al-Quds day? Right?

Al-Quds that's the Muslim word for Jerusalem, because Jerusalem doesn't exist. It's al-Quds, of course.

So they were celebrating al-Quds in Dearborn, Michigan.

And, oh, what a celebration it was.

Do you have -- can you pull this up a little bit?

VOICE: Why are our protests, on the International Day of Quds.

VOICE: This is Dearborn, Michigan.

VOICE: Why don't we just focus more on Israel and not talk so much about America?

GLENN: Yeah, amen.

VOICE: They've shown the entire world, why these protests are so anti-America. Because it's the United States government, that provides the funds, for all of the atrocities, that we just heard about.

And this is why Khomeini, who declared the International day of Quds.

This is why he would say, to pour all of your chants and all of your shouts, upon the head of America.

GLENN: Death to America. Death to America. Death to America.

VOICE: Malcolm X said, and I quote.

GLENN: Hmm.

VOICE: We live in the rottenest countries that has ever existed in this country. It's not genocide Joe that has to go. It's the entire system that has to go. Any system that would allow such atrocities, and such devilry to happen. And would support it. Such a system does not deserve to exist on God's earth.

GLENN: Amen!

Now, I -- you might quibble.

We might quibble a little bit on certain things.

Like death to America.

I mean, wanted to play that. Because this was happening in Dearborn, Michigan.

By the way, in unrelated news, that great-grandmother, 71 years old, that walked into an open door in the Capitol. They busted her, finally. Finally.

STU: Oh, good.

GLENN: She's been convicted. She's going to jail.

We don't know. You know, we don't know how strong.

I hope it's ten years, for parading. But they got her over the weekend.

This guy, anyway. Back to the real story. This guy is chanting death to America, in the city that is known as the jihad Capitol of America.

Dearborn.

STU: Is that on their, like, sign when you pull in?

Dearborn, Michigan. The jihad Capitol of America.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

STU: It is?

GLENN: Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Yeah.

So, by the way, the US is on high alert, and actively preparing for a significant attack that could come as soon as this week by Iran, targeting Israeli or American assets in the region of -- of Syria. So we might get hit over there. But who knows?

We have the protesters there, shouting death to America.

You know, but they're not -- that's not really terrorists. They're just speaking their mind. Some would say, that's maybe mis or disinformation.

Maybe even malinformation.

But not our government, I'll tell you that right now. Instead, President Joe Biden is -- is trying to garner the votes of those people.

He is reaching out to Michigan, and jihad city. And he is wanting the Muslim vote.

Now, I will tell you. Not all Muslims, you know, want jihad.

Some of them came over here and went, hey. You know, I kind of like the idea that, you know, we're not going to be killed, if we disagree.

Yeah. Well, things are changing in America.

So Joe Biden is doing everything he can, to cater to this vote.

To the people who are against Israel.

And for the Palestinians. And, I mean, want to say, that would leave out, then, people from Jordan.

People from Egypt.

And -- and people from Syria. Anywhere in that region, because none of them want the Palestinians. None of them.

None of them will do anything, except condemn Israel and the United States.

So they're not there helping at all. Why? Because the Palestinians are a revolutionary people, when it comes to their leadership. Always a revolutionary people.

And they've -- and they've experienced it firsthand. Both in Egypt. And in Jordan.

So everybody is like, yeah. I don't think so.

I don't think so. Let Israel. Let them just be the revolutionaries in Israel.

And we can all say, we support them. Even though, they really don't.

But Joe Biden is catering to those people, to the point that he is preparing to force Jewish-made products from Judea and Samaria. To be clearly labeled so consumers know where the products are from.

STU: What?

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: That can't be real. Really?

GLENN: It is. Reports said, the move from the administration would reverse a policy enacted by President Donald Trump. That required goods made in Judea and Samaria as to be labeled, Made in Israel.

Biden administration -- what do you think? Hang on. Hang on. What do you think, if we put just a little yellow star on those products? You know what I mean?

STU: Oh, that would be helpful for people.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah.

And you can only use those products. Or if you buy those products, maybe you get striped pajamas. With a little yellow star on it. We could do that.

STU: Interesting roach. Is it too subtle though? What about big block letters that say, made by them Jews?

Something like that. So people really know.

GLENN: How about, made by them enjoys, in Jew land. Yeah. We can do that. We can do that.

STU: That's the way to go. That's the way to go.

GLENN: Pretty good.

Joe Biden. I don't know if he's thinking about that.

We are actually talking about changing labels, to make sure everybody knows that's in Judea.

Stu, why does that sound so much like Jew, just with dea at the end? You know, it's weird.

STU: It's a real mystery. It is a mystery.

You know, but this hopefully will help to win over that gentleman, that was speaking so nicely in front of the death of America crowd. Maybe he can win that swing vote.

Won't that be so worth it?

You know, abandoning Israel and labeling all the Jews. But you might get that Dearborn, Michigan, vote. Maybe you'll get Rashida Tlaib to support you again.

And what an honorable pursuit that would be.

GLENN: We are actually on the side of evil now. We're on the --

STU: Who is we?

GLENN: The country.

STU: The country's leadership.

GLENN: Yeah. The United States of America, as an endorse factor.

Not the people, per se.

But we are actually fighting for the side of -- of evil now.

We are -- when you can't see, in a nation, that, you know, many people in Washington might remember something called 9/11.

When you have somebody on the streets, chanting, death to America.

Death to Israel.

Quoting the Ayatollah Khomeini in Iraq.

I'm sorry. In Iran.

Who we are worried is going to attack us this week. When that happens, and you have the government coming out and condemning Israel and trying to get the vote of those people who are on the streets. Condemning America.

We're on the side of evil. We are on the side of evil.

And, you know, God bless it. If that's what the people want, that's exactly what the people will get.

It's not what -- it's not what God's people want, quite honestly.

STU: And you listen to the coverage of it.

It's as if -- first of all, and we were six months away from October 7th.

Six months in a day.

GLENN: Six months.

Took the world six months.

STU: And it didn't take the world six months.

It took the world like six weeks tops.

But, I mean, you know, the -- the administration who initially came out. And Biden doing his old school Democratic calculus, which there were some.

You know, there were some supporters in the Democratic Party of Israel. I don't know if there were any left. But Chuck Schumer is a great example of this, right?

He would be a guy that would at least come out and say things about Israel.

Seems to be gone now, entirely from the party.

GLENN: Nancy Pelosi.

STU: Nancy Pelosi. It's incredible.

Even Hillary Clinton. Go back and listen to Hillary Clinton a few weeks after.

She was on, I think The View.

If that's not the worst collection of people. Hillary Clinton as a guest.

It's like a wormhole.

GLENN: Of bad people.

STU: Of bad people. But she even --

GLENN: The Nuremberg might have been a bigger collection.

STU: There's an argument.

But I think there's a -- not helpful.

You go back and listen to even her explanation of this situation.

Hey, you guys don't understand the history of this.

Let me lay that out for you.

She even has encapsulated to what has happened. They all started to ignore it now.

The guy who is running the world central kitchen.

And I get it. He's, first of all, a lefty. Second of all, in the middle of a ridiculously tragic situation, a bunch of his workers are killed.

It's hard to even -- I don't know we should be listening to any -- he's a chef. I don't know if there's any reason why we would be listening to his political opinions anyway.

He's completely accusing of killing these workers intentionally. Like, why on earth would they do such a thing?

Even if they were evil, and their whole goal was to rule the world with their Jewish evil, why on earth would they kill aid workers intentionally?

It would work against their interests. In every way. But like, because Jews are just comic book evil. We're supposed to believe this nonsense.

It is -- it's incredible.

It's so absurd. And if and thankfully, I have not even all of the footage. And I am going to avoid it, if at all possible. Of what happened after -- we talked about this off the air. I made the decision, I don't want to see it. I understand what it is. I've read a lot about it. I understand it. You're talking about potentially seeing it.

GLENN: Yeah. I'm going to see it.

I think in a couple of weeks.
STU: And I don't think that's a bad -- I think that's a good thing for you to do.

GLENN: I think it's been -- I'm not sure. But I think it's been offered to many people at the Blaze. I asked for a briefing.

I want to see -- I want to see the details.

I want to know what Israel knows. Okay?

And so it's a -- very high security thing.

STU: Yep.

GLENN: And so I've asked for it. And I think selected people here at the Blaze are going to be able to see it as well.

And I think you should see it, Stu.

STU: I understand what happened. And I don't need to see to understand it. I think if you're on the fence and you don't understand it, you should definitely see it. But I talked to Dave Marcus, who will be on with Megyn Kelly by the way today. With Dave. He saw it. And his summary of it, walking out of it, after watching the footage.
He said, if this happened in the United States, there would be a million people dead somewhere.

That's how serious it was.

And I don't doubt it.

I -- the -- he said. And I think this is accurate.

Israel showed restraint here. This is not -- Israel does -- could be doing a lot more than they're doing. And I feel like, the media would think that that's the most insane thing for them to say.

And I don't think if they think that. I -- the fact that they have eliminated or captured something like 60 or 70 percent of what they believe is Hamas.

And we're asking them to just leave the other 30 percent hanging out. Which, by the way, has still not returned, the hostages.

GLENN: Right. Won't even let the Red Cross in to see the hostages or talk to them.

STU: Yeah. When does Hamas get asked about a cease-fire?

They don't. It's just supposed to be Israel doing it. And Hamas is able to do whatever they want. Well, forget -- I'm sorry. We would -- everybody calling this show, if this happened in America, would be asking for what Israel is doing and more.

Why are People PANICKING Over the Eclipse?

A total solar eclipse is passing across America and apparently, some people are panicking. Is it the end of the world? Or is it just another calendar event that we've seen before and works like clockwork? Glenn and Stu review some of the craziest historical and modern interpretations of the solar eclipse: Is a giant frog eating the sun? Are the sun and moon mating? Is Mercury in retrograde? Is it all a government psy-op? But one thing is definitely true: People are paying a lot of money for hotels along the eclipse's path...and Glenn has an offer for them.

STU: Are you okay? Very concerned.

GLENN: I'm very concerned, Stu.

I've been reading about some of the things that people believe about the solar eclipse. You should wear black if you're pregnant. Wear black today. Here's why. If you're not wearing -- if you're outside and the solar eclipse happened and you're wearing black, your baby will be born with a birthmark.

Now, I've got birthmarks on me. And I don't think I was born on an eclipse. But I could have been, and I didn't even know it.

Keep your infant away from windows.

STU: Almost seems like good advice. Doesn't it?

GLENN: Well --

STU: Because if they open their eyes, they look at the sun, they won't have the glasses on.

GLENN: Oh, I was thinking about, just, generally speaking. Yeah, I guess it is. To keep your babies away from open windows.

STU: From open windows, in particular, yes. At high altitudes.

GLENN: Right. Yeah. So a lot of people are -- are freaking out about this.

STU: Yeah. I noticed that. That's strange to me.

GLENN: That -- is that because we're freaked out about everything else?

Because we know what these are. And I'm going to -- I'm a doctor, okay?

I'm a doctor, so I can explain this to you. I'll try to dumb it down.

But there are three big bodies, like planets. And I'm not talking about my big body.

I'm talking about like the earth, then there's the sun. Which is not a planet.

It's -- it's just gaseous.
(laughter)

Sorry. And then there's the moon.

And the moon and the earth and the sun, we kind of rotate around. You know.

We go around the sun, and the moon goes around us. And occasionally, the moon blocks the sun from our vantage point.

STU: You're still believing that hype?

GLENN: I'm just following the science, man. That's all I'm doing.

STU: Right. How do you not know the truth? Occasionally the sun needs to recharge. It's a giant CIA scam. It has a giant battery.

So they switch the batteries out. It's a, quote, unquote, solar eclipse. But I didn't think anybody believed the whole moon/sun thing.

GLENN: I mean, it's happening.

STU: It happens to be the perfect distance away. To cover the sun exactly.

Does anyone buy that.

GLENN: It's only from our vantage point.

Certain parts. You see what I mean?

Now, the Navajos believe that the sun and moon are mating.


STU: I can buy that. Sun is pretty hot. You know. And the moon.

GLENN: Oh, it's cold.

STU: Why do you think they call it mooning?

GLENN: So the eclipse is just the moon and the sun, mating. Please, please, can we stop with all of this sex in front of our children?

I would like to ban the eclipse today. Because I find it wholly inappropriate.

Anyway, as soon as the -- I mean, it's fast.

There's not a big gestation period. It's when the moon finally moves away from the sun.

There's a birth of a new era. Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.

Now, the Taos people, the Taos Pueblo of New Mexico, they believe you need to stay indoors, keep your babies from the windows.

The Cherokees say the eclipse means a giant frog in the sky, is trying to eat the sun.

That one, I considered for a while today.

STU: That seems legit.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, that could happen. They're already turning the frogs gay.

Now the gay frogs are going to eat the sun. So that's why you have to go outside and be make big noise with drums. Whistles. Or just your voice, to scare away the frog. Jump frog!

Now, an astronomer at the Frankl Institute, he says, you know, this is all nonsense.

It's science.

It's just the moon moving in front of the sun. It happens. It's part of the clockwork of -- blah, blah, blah, blah.

However, Stephanie Renee, with two E's and an accent grande. She's known as the Vibe Mistress. She's not just the Vibe Mistress. She's the Vibe Mistress of the Soul Sanctuary, which is a nonprofit arts, education foundation. Damn it, she shouldn't have to pay taxes, okay?

She's the Vibe Mistress.

She says, because she studies astrology, this is a new beginning, and marks a radical change.

She said, it's a radical movement, moving forward, in your own individual energy.

Right now, I can feel it. There's -- this is like a -- I don't know highway to describe it. You know how you have butterflies in your stomach. I feel like I have anarchists in my stomach right now.

There is some radical movement that is moving inside of me.

I don't know. I don't know.

I just hope before the moon and the sun mate. That I can crap them all out.

Flush them down the toilet.

Anyway, she says, this is happening this time with Mercury.

Come on, say it. What's the worst possible scenario?

Mercury is in?

STU: Retrograde.

GLENN: Yes! Even you knew that. Even you knew that.

This means, that we are -- because Mercury is in retrograde, this means we have to double and triple check what you think or what you say, or what you do.

Now, even if Mercury is not in retrograde, which it is, and I'm not mocking it. I think it's a good safety tip for all of us, especially now.

We should, again, double and triple check what you say, what you think, and what you do.

Huh. That's profound. I wouldn't have gotten that, if Mercury was in retrograde.

STU: You don't want to do that regularly anyway.

GLENN: No, I don't want to do it regularly. But Mercury is on retrograde, on the day of the Eclipse.

In fact, people should be careful about making major purchases. I'm glad she caught me.

Because I was going to make a major purchase of something today. I don't even know what.

But I got up this morning. Maybe it's the anarchist in my stomach, that are building up this radical movement inside of me. That I'm like, I have to go buy something.

I have to go buy something big. And I'm not even going to read the contract. But Mercury is in retrograde. So I'm going to think twice. And a third time about doing that.

Don't make any major purchases. Don't sign any contracts. And there should be a high level of caution.

She also says, it's significant, that this eclipse is happening as the skies enter the astrological sign of Aries. And we all know what that means. Means that you have all this Aries energy. Right?

Don't I hate it when you have the Aries energy. Oh, I hate that.

It's pushing you forward.

You know, in an eclipse. That's about an inner shift inside of you. At the same time, Mercury in retrograde is telling to you slow down.

But Aries is saying, speed up. So you're fighting right now. Speed up, slow down.

Do I buy something ridiculously expensive, without reading a contract today, or not?

Mercury says no. Aries says yes.

I don't know.

The world is in confusion. But all you have to do, is check. Double-check. Triple check.

Boy, I'm glad. I mean, I see why she's not paying taxes. Don't you? Seriously.

STU: That's fascinating.

I might be more fascinated in the fact that people flew from all over the country, to come see this happen. Is going to be cloudy.

GLENN: Well, not everywhere.

It's just here in Dallas.

STU: I've heard a lot of this path, is going to wind up with clouds, which is rough.

GLENN: Yeah. So here in Dallas, I read that some people have been, you know, staying at the Ritz-Carlton.

And they got a two-day stay for $6,700.

STU: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Sixty-seven.

Now, it's cloudy.

So I just want to tell those, that paid 67,000.

STU: Hundred.

GLENN: Or, yeah. 6700.

You can come to my house, for an additional 10,000, and have mac and cheese.

I'm just saying.

STU: Wow. So you're going to charge more. But you're also going to provide mac and cheese.

Now, I've had your mac and cheese, it's delicious.

GLENN: It is delicious.

It's right from the box. It's very, very good.

It's just $10,000. That's it, per person.

I mean --

STU: Well, you can't be crazy.

GLENN: You can't be crazy, but it's an eclipse special only. Okay?

So if you're here from the eclipse. And you feel like a sucker, just spend ten grand. Come over. Have mac and cheese with me. And you won't feel like a sucker anymore. Uh-huh.

STU: Are you -- is this something you'll go out in the parking lot today, and like, observe? Are you into it, that much.

Or are you, this is ridiculous, I'm not going to --

GLENN: It's history.

STU: It is.

It's one in 17. I remember standing in the parking lot, awkwardly in 2017. I really don't remember much about it.

And I don't remember thinking, it was such a big deal. Before 2017, the last time I guess it happened, was in 1979? It's not going to happen again, until 2024.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah, we're done. We're done. This is it. This is it.

If we survive today. If we survive today, it will be 2044 or whatever, long after our death.
You know, and it will be a lot hotter then. Uh-huh.

STU: Uh-huh. Yeah.

GLENN: Because --

STU: Global warming.

GLENN: Okay. So the earth has gravitational pull on the moon, right?

Okay. Well, the earth and the moon are going to have an extra gravitational pull on the sun today.

STU: Really?

GLENN: And it could. We don't know. It's like a yo-yo sometimes.

Come at us. And then it will snap back. Don't worry.

But it could come right at us today, which would be bad for North America.

Fine, if you're in -- if you're listening to us in Asia. You're good.

But North America, could be gone from the earth. It could happen.

STU: It could happen. Now, your analysis will be put in the next article about all the stupid theories.

GLENN: I just -- I really don't know what's happening.

Is it because we're so screwed up.

Is it because we're living in such chaos right now, that people are. Because I've never heard this were. I was there at '79. I was there at '17. We know what this is.

STU: Right. Someone was pointing out, that, you know, back in the day, this is when they thought the world was ending.

And like, kind of understandable.

I think if I were just in the middle -- you didn't have any satellites. You didn't know any of this stuff.

All of a sudden, the whole earth went dark in the middle of the day.

I think that's a pretty reasonable summary.

GLENN: I did.

Imagine if you didn't know, that this is the way things happen. Imagine if you didn't know that.

And even today, if we wouldn't have talked about it in advance. If we didn't know, in advance.

They were just like, oh, yeah. It was an eclipse.

A lot of people would be like, what the hell just happened?

But we know. We know.

STU: Yeah. I feel like there's still stuff that's like this too.

I feel like there's still things in this world. That we don't have any understanding of.

And we think are totally random.

If 50 years.

People will be like.

Like a tornado is one of them.

There has to be some way to know that a tornado is around the world.

And we stand there. Oh -- that's it.

Let's put our cameras outside.

We will film it.

Until --

GLENN: It's right on top of us!

STU: Right. Exactly.

GLENN: Then we will go, oh, crap. I should have gone into a basement.
