How ‘foolish’ next steps with Russia could COLLAPSE America

Many Americans — including influential politicians — are calling for the Biden administration to stop imports of Russian oil. Glenn says he supports that initiative IF America is drilling for oil at home to replace it. Unfortunately, though, our elected leaders currently are seeking oil from Iran and Venezuela instead. The only way this would make sense, Glenn explains, is if our leaders truly want to destroy America. They’re being foolish, not looking at next steps to come, and it could be enough to collapse the U.S...

GLENN: Hello, you sick, twisted freak. Welcome to the Glenn Beck Program. What you're seeing happen over in Russia, is -- is the Great Reset.

And people may cheer for it. And say, look, they can't even watch the opening of Batman this weekend.

Yeah.

But this has never happened before, in history. And it's not because, you know, the Biden administration cobbled all these people together.

This is The Great Reset.

This is all of these companies, deciding, that they want to have a high ESG score.

And so that's what they're doing.

And they are collapsing the economy, of Russia.

Unfortunately, because we are foolish, and we don't -- we don't look beyond the next step, we are collapsing ourself, as well.

We cannot cut off Russian oil, without us opening up our own not oil reserves. Open our own oil production.

We could provide the world with the energy, that it needs, or a good portion of it.

But we won't do it, because of global warming. So we're going to these crazy places.

STU: And their excuse for it, basically. If you will take the best face of the administration.

Their position of it, is we're going to Iran. We're going to Venezuela. Because we want to limit the damage, of whatever is going to happen in Russia. So we need more production. And the reason we don't open it up, here, is because we don't want this to be a long-term play for more fossil fuel use.

We want this to be a short-term price control, on the market. Where we can help the market, in this -- in this short time, when this war is going on, and we have all these disruptions. But we don't want to depend for a long time on fossil fuels, because we think the existential threat of all of our civilizations is global warming.

GLENN: It doesn't make sense because you would go to fossil fuels from Russia, which is oil is dirtier than ours and has much worse effect on the climate, as you're refining it.

It wouldn't make sense, that you would go to Iran.

And Venezuela.

Why would you go? Because now your social justice goes off the charts.

You're going to go fund a country, that is -- throws homosexuals off the roofs of buildings?

You're going to go to a socialist country, that is starving its people, while its leader gets rich?

I don't think that's a good idea.

STU: No.

But I think their position on that is, it's temporary.

We're not going --

GLENN: Yeah. Temporarily helping any of thinker people.

STU: Oh. I'm with you on this, by the way.

GLENN: I know. I know. But temporarily helping people, that are throwing gay people off the roof?

That's what --

STU: Well, it's not like Russia is much better on that topic. We're already buying it from Russia.

GLENN: Yeah. We should contract, not expand.

Just the only thing that makes sense, is if you actually don't want America to succeed. Or you don't believe that anyone is for this. Except a small handful of people.

And so if you give out this ground now, you'll never get it back.

STU: I think that's kind of what it is, right?

At least partially.

GLENN: Yeah. Could be.

STU: They believe -- when they have power like this. Jammed through every green new deal. Lock us in for long-term progress on this.

GLENN: So then that should. You should ask then, are they truly representatives of the people?

STU: Of course not.

GLENN: Right. Right. If you're willing to collapse us, for that.

STU: I mean, if you have this. You have this view of global warming. This apocalyptic you want I can view of global warming. Where you would rather give money to regimes like Iran and Venezuela, that's just completely insane.

And the Elon Musk position is a much more sensible, apocalyptic global warming position, right?

Where you say, all right. We have nuclear power. Which is much, much safer.

It is -- it's the best type of power available, for all of these reasons.

It lasts forever. Basically, it's -- it is completely clean. Emission-free.

All the things, that both sides seem to want. Independents, plus no emissions. I mean, it really does hit the sweet spot there.

And environmentalists have turned against this, for 40, 50 years. It just shows no seriousness.

And now we're in this position, where we have to deal with these regimes. Or we have to violate one of these two signs. Either not be independent. Or about to do forbid, light the planet on fire.

GLENN: Well, the reason why we don't want to buy oil from Russia is, humanitarian reasons. We don't like what he's doing to people?

STU: Sure. That's part of it. That's how they're violating this war. Right?

GLENN: Right. Right.

I know. But we weren't talking about not funding him.

Until he crossed into Ukraine.

STU: Right.

GLENN: So we're all seeing the people in Ukraine, and saying, oh, my gosh. We have to help these people. They want to be free.

Uh-huh. What about the people that marched and were jailed in Cuba. Let's be really clear.

In Iran.

STU: In Venezuela.

GLENN: And in Venezuela.

Why don't we see them?

STU: I think what --

GLENN: You can't. You can't heal one place, by aiding murderers and things in another.

STU: Generally speaking though, the situations you're talking about, are situations in which. And we have very much, by the way, isolated Iran before this.

GLENN: Yeah. Not now.

STU: Now, all of a sudden, we're reversing that.

But their in-country issues, right?

The -- the message being sent to Russia here, in their argument. Their worldview.

Is this is a line you can't cross. I have crossed a line, and we're enforcing a line, and doing with everything we can to enforce a line. And if it means we have to fall back on some other promises and some other things. Then that's what we have to do.

As you know, Glenn. We're only a few months away, from an election in this country. In them the Democrat, if they're facing 8-dollar a gallon gas, they're not going to do well with $2 a gallon gas right now. $8 a gallon gas could be the ultimate wave election, that we haven't seen in a century.

Right?

So it might make the Tea Party election, look like it was nothing, from 2010.

If we're looked at 8-dollar a gallon gas. And inflation through the roof.

That's exactly --

GLENN: This is where some people think, yeah. Well, that's why they'll bring things town quickly.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Because then they'll just cancel elections. If you cancel elections. This will not happen. Well, I can't say that.

STU: You can't say anything can happen anymore.

GLENN: Anything can happen. I just don't see that happening. But I do see a country that is so hungry, that is so freaked out, by everything that is -- that is happening. And the Democrats saying, we'll give you all these free things.

Pass our Build Back Better bill, and we'll give you all these free things.

STU: Do you think that will be effective. We'll oversee this entire thing happening?

GLENN: It might be. It might be.

I mean, otherwise, what -- it's -- well, it's -- it's Putin. It's Putin.

Why? Why would you do this? This makes no sense.

Why would you do this?

Well, it makes sense to somebody. With Putin. Why would you do this?

Your logic doesn't work here. It doesn't make sense. What are you doing?

So your answer is, he's crazy. Or we don't understand what he thinks is rational, okay?

The same thing here, with the Democratic -- the Democratic Party. I mean, I don't know. Why would you do this? Why wouldn't you open up just for nine months, hey, we're opening up just for this.

Why wouldn't you open that up? It would provide relief. It would create jobs.

It would put us back into a position, where we're leading the world, not -- not following.

And I think those reasons are the reasons why they're not doing that. But what is your endgame? I don't know.

How do you win the election, I don't know.

STU: Because there's no way, there's no -- I think they're trying to hopefully minimize the harsh impact of the American people, so they can do not lose -- not only purple districts, but, you know, light blue districts.

GLENN: Where are they minimizing this? Where are you seeing them minimize it?

STU: Going to Iran. Going to Venezuela, to try to lower gas prices enough, so the shock isn't as bad, if we wind up losing Russia.

Because we keep talking about. Well, we might not buy Russian oil. What if they sell it to us?

That's how they're funding the war right now. They will continue to do it, we think for the foreseeable future. What if they decide, you know what, Europe, we're not giving you anything. We see what you're doing on our borders. We see what you're doing in this war. We see you're sending planes in there. We're not selling it to you anymore.

Yes, that would hurt them.

GLENN: Who has whom over the barrel?

STU: They both have each other over it.

GLENN: Yeah. I know.

This is one of the situations that people don't understand. We hope that both sides walk away from the table with the gun pointed at each other, saying, all right. We're not going -- we're not going to mess with each other, right? Right?

Because I can shoot you dead, you can shoot me dead. It's mutually assured destruction. Mad is not just with nuclear missiles, although it is with nuclear missiles in the end.

But, you know, right now, we can both -- and we both are destroying our own economies.

We are engaged, in mad. In madness.

We are destroying ourselves. We're destroying them.

They're destroying themselves.

And us.

It's madness.

Is there anyone that is an adult in the room, that can stand up and go, okay. All right. Okay.

At least in America, if you want to do this, you have to pump your own oil and gas. You must, right now.

Otherwise, sit down. Shut up. Sit down and shut up.

We can't say we are being compassionate, to Ukraine, if we are destroying ourselves.

STU: That doesn't help anybody.

GLENN: Doesn't help anyone in the end. We can't destroy ourselves. And we don't have to.

It's easy. Just turn the pipelines back on. Just open up the spigots, for the natural gas, and the oil to flow. And we can help Europe. We can help our -- we can help ourselves. We can help Ukraine.

And we can cripple Russia.

Isn't that what we want to do? Isn't that what our plan is? Or is our plan to all of us, none of us, have anything? Just wipe everything out.

That doesn't sound like a good plan. But I haven't -- I haven't heard people really -- have you heard people articulate this?

I either hear, you know, Putin is not a bad guy. Or we need to fly our planes in there, and cut off his oil.

STU: Yeah. It's a weird time. Because we are correctly, morally justified in taking a strong position on this. On what has happened. It's been really, really bad.

And Vladimir Putin still is mostly to blame for it.

You know, that's not to say, everyone else in the world is perfect.

But this was an unneeded escalation in our world.

But I don't think that the American people have been told, and had the full conversation, on what sort of ramifications are going to come from this. I still talk to people who are like, I'm not really interested. It's way over there.

GLENN: Yeah. Not so much.

STU: It will affect us in a major way. It obviously already is at the pumps. That's the first sign though. If this thing goes on.

Vladimir Putin is not the type of guy who will say, yeah. You guys ruined our economy. Let me go back to our own borders. You know what, take Crimea back too.

That may be too much of an overreach for us. He's not that kind of guy. He won't back up. And say, this was a mistake. I'm sorry.

GLENN: Here's the reason why Donald Trump didn't say anything about Putin, while they were together. Okay?

And Putin didn't say anything bad about Trump. Because Trump told me, I had a deal, you don't embarrass me. I won't embarrass you.

Now, that's not just beyond policy. It's just, don't you dare target me, personally. Or I will target you personally in the war of words. You know.

STU: Yeah. And people forget Trump's policies, not words. But policies on Russia very strong. Much stronger than Obama's or Bidens.

GLENN: Right.

And he also said to Putin, you take Ukraine. Those beautiful onion domes there in Moscow. I blow those up.

STU: The gold turrets, they're going down.

GLENN: Yeah. And that is important, in a guy, like Vladimir Putin.

You have to speak his language. Or he does not respect you.

‘STUNNING’ statistics PROVE the church may be in DANGER

A recent report found that only 37 PERCENT of Christian pastors bring a ‘Biblical worldview’ with them to the pulpits. And, for Catholic priests, the numbers are even worse. Glenn breaks down these ‘STUNNING’ statistics which prove that the Christian church in America may be in BIG danger…

GLENN: By the way, there's a couple of things hear. Only half of evangelical pastors hold a Biblical worldview.

Now, this might be a little shocking for people who go to church. A study released Tuesday builds on an other report from American World View inventory 2022, which shows that 37 percent of Christian pastors bring a Biblical worldview with them, to the pulpits.

Now, a Biblical worldview is -- do you -- does every person have a purpose and a calling is this

Do you have a purpose for being here? And can God call you to something? I'm asking you, Stu.

STU: Why are you asking me, without the echo in your voice?

GLENN: Because I don't want you to feel damned, immediately.

STU: Oh, okay.

GLENN: So do you feel the purpose in calling?

STU: Sure.

GLENN: Family and value of life. Those come from God.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Do you believe in God?

STU: This is a tough one. After the previous two, but yes.

GLENN: Do you believe in creation? I know this is weird. Creation and history?

STU: I believe in history. I just believe in --

GLENN: I believe in creation. Do you? I mean, intelligent design. I don't know how he creates.

STU: Yeah. I don't find that question to be as riveting as some do. I don't really care how he did it, honestly. But it's on him.

GLENN: It's like, oh, we got you there. So you're saying, dinosaurs aren't real?

STU: Yeah. I don't really -- I don't know all the details to it. It wasn't there. I will say, I don't know how an i Phone works exactly. But I'm glad the texts go through.

GLENN: But I don't believe in Steve Jobs. He never existed. That just, all of a sudden appeared on a beach somewhere.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Let's see. Do you believe in sin? Salvation and relationship with God?

Do you believe in behavior and relationships, the Bible, and its truth and morals?

STU: I think.

GLENN: Yeah. I think those are all pretty easy. Only 37 percent of pastors. Believe in that.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: I mean, you might want to put that on the front sign. You know what I mean?

Like, hey, come in. Try our doughnuts. And we don't really believe what you think we believe.

STU: Well, this happened to you. Right? When you were doing your church tour. Back in the day.

GLENN: Oh, back in the day. We went to every church. Every religion. Because my wife wouldn't marry me without a common religion.

And I'm like. I love God and everything. But religion, I --

STU: This is a long time ago. This was not you, at the time though.

You were not. This church tour happened, in what? I don't remember what year it was.

GLENN: '99.

STU: Wow, it was a long time ago.

GLENN: A long time ago.

STU: You were finding your way. Mainly because your wife wouldn't marry you if -- you're forced into it.

GLENN: Right. I was forced into it. And she didn't believe in premarital sex either. And I'm like, okay. Chickaboo. I said, what is it going to take? And she said, God. Here I am. I'm practically a god, look at me. No.

STU: A Greek god.

GLENN: A Greek god. She vomited. And then I went to church. So we tried everything. I mean, we -- I really liked a Jewish synagogue we went to. Except you couldn't eat a lot of good things that I liked. And I don't speak a word of Hebrew. But it was in and out on Saturday, and it was pretty good. I since learned there was more than that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: But I went to this church. And it was. What do they call those churches? Congregational, right? The white churches on the greens.

Yeah. I think it's congregational churches. And they're non-denominational. And so I'm sitting there in the pew. And Tania and I were listening.

It's okay. It's church. And during it the sermon. The pastor said, now, you all know that I don't believe in God. But if there is a God, we should serve him.

And I'm like, hey, that doesn't make any sense at all. Okay?
(laughter)

GLENN: And that should be on the front door, someplace. Before you go and sit down, you should just know, our pastor does not believe in God. But if there is a God, maybe we should serve him.
(laughter)
You know, good safety tip there. So back in just a minute. I'm going to give you a reason on why I'm telling you this latest survey. It's crazy. Finnegan is a 12-year-old Husky Lab. And Daniel not his owner. That would be wrong.

His adult friend. He said Finnegan used to sleep all the time. We had to spike his food every day with cheese and ham, et cetera. And even then, he wouldn't eat most of his food. Sometimes for days. I was skeptical about ordering Ruff Greens. But I gave it a try. In a month or so, Finnegan was incredibly active, and he runs and plays with other dogs. He even chases rabbits and squirrels again. I wish I would have discovered this for him, long ago.

Well, get it when you can, you know. Doing the best you can, to raise a health dog. Ruff Greens can help you. It's not a dog food. It's vitamins and minerals. And all the other things that your dog needs to live a healthy life. And they love it. And you put it on there. Now, not all dogs love it, I'm sure. So they want to give you a free bag, to make sure that your dog loves it, as much as my dog Uno. And Daniel's dog Finnegan. They'll eat it, man. You just watch over them. They change. It is really great to see. It's Ruff Greens. RuffGreens.com/Beck. RuffGreens.com/Beck.

GLENN: On only 30 percent of Christian pastors believe and have a Biblical worldview. I mean, if you're not talking about sin and, you know, how to be a better Christ-like person. And how do you -- 37. What are they teaching?

STU: Those are the questions. The specific questions asked. Certainly, there are differences among denominations. And various questions.

But these are pretty basic points.

GLENN: Are these eight categories. Eight categories. Purpose and calling. Family and value of life.

God, creation and history. Faith practices. Sin, salvation, and relationship with God. Human character. And nature. Lifestyle. Behavior and relationships.

Oh, and the Bible. Truth and morals.

STU: Yeah. I know there are obviously disagreements on some of the intricate matters of faith between denominations and pastors.

GLENN: Sure. But 37 percent.

STU: The only thing I would ask, who is the defining Biblical worldview there? And I would assume --

GLENN: The bible.

STU: If you're assuming broad categories like that, that's a stunning number.

GLENN: Stunning. Stunning number.

STU: To the point of, how is it possible?

GLENN: So 57 percent of pastors leading non-denominational and independent churches, held a Biblical worldview, a nationwide study in February. Conducted in February. Nondenominational and independent churches were more likely to subscribe to a Biblical worldview than evangelical churches. Perhaps most surprisingly 48 -- 48 percent of pastors of Baptist churches, widely viewed as the most enthusiastic about embracing the Bible. Held a Biblical worldview, 48 percent.

Pastors of Southern Baptist churches by contrast were far more likely. 78 percent, to have Biblical beliefs. The traditional black Protestant churches and Catholic priests, I'm sorry. Just -- wow. I just had to read this again.

Traditional black Protestant churches and Catholic priests, were found least likely to hold a Biblical view. With the incidence of Biblical worldview, measured in the single dingles. Black churches. 9 percent of pastors and Catholic priests. 6 percent.

STU: I feel like you ask atheists, if you have a Biblical worldview. You would have higher than 9 percent.

GLENN: I think I could give it to Penn Jillette. And he would be like, you know.

STU: At 14 percent. I'm at 14 percent.

GLENN: Yeah. That's crazy. In churches with an average of 100 or fewer within attending weekly services. 41 percent of the pastors had a Biblical worldview. Larger fellowships with 100 to 250 adults fared better, with 45 percent.

However, 14 percent of pastors leading mid-sized churches, between 250 and 600 people. 14 percent.

And 15 percent of pastors with congregations of more than 600 adults. That's crazy.

STU: Yeah. That's hard to understand how that's possible. Why would you be involved in this business, right?

I hate to call it a business. It's your life's work. It's your career. Right?

GLENN: It's like. You know what it means? It's my uncle who is the head of safety at Boeing for years, and he would never fly. He would never get on an airplane. And he would be like, uncle Dave, what is that? And he's like, if you fly, you have to fly a Boeing.

STU: If they can care about it a little.

GLENN: It is my uncle, who is the head of safety at bowing for years. Okay.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: And he would never fly. He would never get on an airplane.

STU: Right.

GLENN: And you would be like, uncle Dave. I don't. What is that? And he's like, if you fly, you have to fly a Boeing. But there's no reason, logically that that thing should be able to take off and fly. I don't know if you're the best for safety, you know.

I think that's -- my uncle Dave should have been a priest maybe.

Glenn reads leftists’ CLUELESS reactions to SCOTUS decision

The far-left proved once again it’s members care very little about ‘peace.’ In fact, some reactions from leftist, blue checkmarks on Twitter show just how ANGRY they can be…especially when it comes to the Supreme Court preserving the Constitution and returning rights to the STATES. Glenn reads several of their reactions to SCOTUS' recent decision that further protects the Second Amendment...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Boy, I just wanted to go through some of the blue checkmark responses from yesterday. Because, gee. I just -- I just don't -- I just don't know what else to say. They were so right on target. Now, that's -- that's a joke. I didn't mean it. I didn't mean it actually target. You know, like Sarah Palin actually meant it. Alicia Sultan. Or Ashia, or whatever her name is. She says, God forbid. Listen, you're listening right now to a guy who is in the Radio Hall of Fame. I am so good at what I do. I don't even need to know how to pronounce names. I don't have to. They were like, this guy is like a radio god.

Yeah, but have you heard him?
Yeah, put him in the Hall of Fame.
Anyway, she said, God forbid, someone you love gets killed by gun violence. I second that. Second Amendment fetishizing will never bring that back, or a make that loss easier to bear. Yeah. I agree with that. I mean, hang on. Let me just take the ball out of my mouth here. I have this fetish thing with the Second Amendment. It is hot. Too many people believe that unfettered access to guns will never hurt someone they love, until it happens. Okay. I don't know what your point is really here. Marion Williams says. People will die because of this. And to be very clear, now, listen to this argument.
To be very clear. They're not doing this to protect the Second Amendment. They're doing it to protect the primacy of property rights.
Well, gosh, that's a good reason to do it too, I guess. Huh. I didn't even think of the property right part. But thanks for pointing that out, Marion. Neil Cattial says, it's going to be very weird if the Supreme Court ends a constitutional right to obtain an abortion next week. Saying it should be left to the states to decide, right after it imposed a constitutional right to conceal and carry firearms. Saying, it cannot be left to the states to decide.
Neil, here's what you're missing, dude.One is actually in the Constitution. It's called the Second Amendment. That tells the federal government, and the states exactly what they can and cannot do. What government cannot do. There is no right to abortion. I -- show it to me. Show it to me. When you can show it to me, I will change my argument. That, when it's not in -- I'll talk slowly for you, Neil.
When it's not in the Constitution, then, there's this part of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It's -- it's -- just look for the number ten. Okay? And that says anything that's not specifically in the Constitution. That goes then to the states. Yeah. Look at you. You're going to read something.
Jill Flipuffock says -- says the kind of people who desperately want to carry concealed weapons in public, is based on a generalized interest in self-defense are precisely the kind of paranoid, insecure, violence, fetishizing people, who should not be able to carry a concealed weapon in public. Okay. So let me get this right.
If you want to carry one, you're the kind that shouldn't carry one. So, in other words, when -- this is right. Jill, my gosh, my whole world is changing. Thank you for this. Now I understand when Martin Luther King went in and said to the state officials, hey. I need to have a concealed carry permit. He's exactly the kind of guy, you Democrats didn't want to carry a gun.
Yes! Jill, thank you for that enlightenment. David Hogged says, you're entitled to your opinion. But not your own facts. And like your own facts, you're not entitled to your own history. That's exactly what the Supreme Court decision is. It's a reversal of 200 years of jurisprudence that will get Americans killed. David, David
Have you read a book? Come on. Do you know anything at all -- name three founders. Can you do it? Right now, think. Go. Can't do it, David. 200 years.
Our -- the only times -- the only times in our history, and you wouldn't know this. Because you bury all the left. Buries the Democratic history.
The only time that we have any kind of history, where we're taking guns away from people, is when the government is afraid of those people. When the government gets really, really racist. Okay? That's why the Indians, yeah. That's why they're living on reservations now. Because we took away their guns. Yeah. Yeah.
That's why after the Civil War. And before the Civil War, slaves could not have guns. Why?
Because they might defend themselves. And then, after they were freed, oh, my gosh, the Democrats freaked out. Those freed slaves, will have a way to protect themselves. And they got it done through all kinds of laws, kind of like what you're doing now.
Thank you, David for writing in. You're special. March for Our Lives. Blue checkmark said yesterday.
The court's decision is dangerous. And deadly. The unfairly nominated blatantly partisan justices put the Second Amendment over our lives. No. I -- I -- may I quote the Princess Bride? I do not think those words mean what you think they mean. Okay?
Second Amendment is there, to protect our lives. To protect our property. And to protect our freedom.
I just want to throw that one out. The blood of American people who die from needless gun violence will be on their corrupt hands.
Okay. Wahajit Ali (phonetic) said, let's have a bunch of black, brown, and Muslim folks carry large guns in predominantly white neighborhoods.
I know the Second Amendment advocates will say that's great and encourage it. Because American history proves otherwise. We might get gun control. But we would also get a lot of chalk outlines.(laughter)Mr. Ali, you are so funny.
See, what you fail to recognize is that all of the people that you say are racist, aren't racist.
There are racists in this country, a lot of them seem to come from the left. You know, like the socialist Klan members. Or the socialist Nazi members. You see what they have both in common?
Yeah. Democratic Party. Anyway, Mr. Alley, if someone wants to carry a gun. And they're a Muslim. I have absolutely no problem. You're brown, you're pink, you're polka dot. You have covid and you're not wearing a mask. Or you don't have covid, and you're wearing 20 masks. And you want to carry a gun. I'm totally fine with that. Now, if you get a bunch of people. And, again, I don't care what color they are. Marching down my neighborhood, with large guns. Yeah. I am going to call the police because that's unusual.
What are you doing? We're just marching with our guns. Why in my neighborhood at night?
None of your business. Does Kavanaugh live around here? See, there's a difference. There's a difference. Right-wingers can freak out about nullification or packing or whatever.
No one cares. You broke all the norms of decency, democracy, and fairness. Oh, my gosh. Oh, wait. Wait.
This is from David Atkins. He has a great solution. At the end of the day, California and New York are not going to let Wyoming and Idaho tell us how we have to live in a Mad Max gun climate hell.
Oh, my gosh. David, let's break some bread, baby. Let's come together. Yeah. All right. Let me do my best Marianne Williamson.
Yeah. Yeah. Because we can come together. What you just said is the point of the Tenth Amendment. California and New York, I don't want to live like them.
You don't want to live like us. So let's not. Let's not. However, there are ten big things. And I've heard they've added to these. But there are ten big things, that no government in the United States of America, can do. Now, you want to change that, let's change it. Because what's so crazy, is there's this thing called the amendment process. You want to change the Constitution, you don't -- what -- all norms of decency. Democracy and fairness. You don't break those.
You want to change those amendments. You can do it. All you have to do is go through the amendment process. And then if you say, everybody has to have a pig on their lap. You get the states to vote for that. Put it on the amendment. You have it. Now, probably there would be another amendment that comes later. That says, hey, the big in the lap thing is really, really, stupid, and I think America lost its mind temporarily. So we're going to scratch that one out. From here on out, no. Absolute must have a pig on your lap kind of loss. Okay?
But both of those would be done through the amendment process. That would be doing it the decent way, the fair way, and the Democratic way. But David, you are cute. When you think, you're cute. Tristan Schnell writes in, when American service members die oversees, their caskets are brought to Dover Air Force base to be displayed and mourned. No, they're not displayed. I don't know if you've noticed this. But we try not to display the dead. But when Americans die because of gun violence, their caskets should be brought to the steps of the Supreme Court. So the justices can see what they've done. Yeah.
Tristan, I like that. Why don't we take every baby that's been aborted, and put them in a bucket. I mean, we're going to need a big bucket. Because there's millions of those.
And let's dump them, on the front steps of the Supreme Court. So they can see what they've done. Wow!
I got to thank all the blue checkmarks. Because you've really turned me around.

Why the Fed’s ‘MATH PROBLEM’ may result in MORE inflation

Yes, it’s possible for our economy to suffer from extremely high inflation while certain goods, products, and services experience DEFLATION as well, Carol Roth — a financial expert and author of ‘The War On Small Business’ — tells Glenn. The Fed actually is TRYING to deflate the economy, Roth explains. But while they’re saying one thing, the Fed’s current policy shows the exact opposite. And that ‘math problem,’ Roth says, is what could cause our economy to experience even more, ‘prolonged’ inflation. It’s a ‘dire situation,’ and there seems to be ZERO leadership willing to fix it…

GLENN: Is it not possible to have super high inflation, on some products. And super low deflation. Prices that are -- that are crazy.

Because they -- nobody is buying them, in other categories. Is that possible to have both of those?

CAROL: Yeah. I think that the best analogy for that would be kind of the '70s. And something that looks for stagflation. Where the economy stagnates. And it stagnates, like you said, because all the money has been sucked up in a couple of categories. And there really is a lot to go around in other places. There's not a lot of investments being made, and what not. But we still end up having high inflation. And we are certainly, a lot of people feel like we're in that sort of stagflation, you know, arena, right now. And it can continue on the trajectory. But you have to remember in terms of deflation. I mean, that's what the Federal Reserve is trying to do. They are actively trying to deflate, you know, not just the bubbles and assets, but they're trying to deflate spending, to cool off the economy. That's why they're shutting off their balance sheets. That's why they're raising their interest rates. It's meant to cool off demand. And that's the math problem that I keep talking about. They keep saying, oh, the consumer. And businesses are going to save us from a recession. But at the same time, the policy is meant to do the exact opposite. The policy is meant to make it, so that people aren't able to spend in the same way. So those two objectives are at odds with each other. And so I do think, that we could end up in this prolonged period, like you said, where the inflation hasn't quite gotten under control. Especially since we have so many supply demand imbalances in our economy. We have a labor imbalance. We have a food imbalance. We have an energy imbalance. And we have a commodity imbalance. And that's not going to it be solved by any monetary policy. That requires real action. And we don't have leadership, that's willing to lead or frankly do anything.

GLENN: So we have -- as I see it, we're looking at a situation. Again, I'm going back. And please, correct me where my thinking is off. But I'm going back to the Great Depression. So people were afraid. They held on to their money. They spent what they had to, and what they could afford. But nothing else.

That caused the labor market to shoot out of control. To -- to about 25 percent unemployment. Because the factories were closing down. Because no one was buying anything, from the factories. Which then, in turn, made FDR say, we're going to build the Hoover damn, to give people jobs. But it was all the government money, which would have just caused more inflation, if I'm not mistaken. Had it not been for the -- and I hate to say it this way. But the saving grace of the Second World War. Right? Were we in a death spiral? I mean, the war was definitely a different kind of reset. And I think a lot of the logic that you're talking about makes sense. If consumer sentiment is really important. And it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, if people don't feel confident, they don't go out and spend. They're worried about their inflation. And being able to feed their family. And get to work. They aren't going to spend -- I think there are a couple of things that we have that are different. And it's not necessarily better for the average American. So I just want to be clear. That I'm on your side, and I'm not saying that it's better.

But because of this huge supply and demand imbalance. We have two jobs available for every person looking. The likelihood is that that probably contracts to be, you know, a better match, than having massive unemployment just because of that scenario is going on. And we also have a whole slew of Americans, who are doing -- you know, have done very well. They have been the beneficiaries of this giant wealth transfer from Main Street to Wall Street. So I think we're going to have a lot of, you know, different outcomes. You know, that inadequately, that's been driven by government policy. And that's never a good thing. Because, you know, the social unrest that comes with it. And rightfully so. Because, you know, these policies have really put the middle class. The working class. And in some cases, the lower class, at risk, to the benefit of the people on the inside. And so the numbers on average, may not show how dire the situation is. And so they'll be able to spend. And say, oh, everything is great. And the consumer is doing well, when people are really struggling. And, you know, that's going to be when we continue to just be furious. And, you know, demand something be done about that.

GLENN: Carol, thank you so much for everything that you do.

She's just issued a new paper. A new piece for TheBlaze. What the heck is going on in bitcoin. And you can find that at TheBlaze.com. TheBlaze.com. What is going on with bitcoin, by Carol Roth. Thanks, Carol. God bless.

Glenn: I didn't think Roe v Wade would end in my lifetime

GLENN: We just have to take a minute, and just think of the miracle we just witnessed.

There isn't a soul, not one soul, in this audience that thought that this would happen. Like this. This fast.

I didn't think it would happen in my lifetime.
