How should America REACT to Hamas, Iran TERRORIST attacks on Israel?

Israel has declared war fir the first time in 50 years after Hamas terrorists attacked multiple cities and slaughtered hundreds of Jews in an event that the nation is comparing to 9/11. But how did Israel not see this attack coming? Glenn and his head researcher, former military intelligence analyst Jason Buttrill, break down what we currently know: "This was an Iranian-backed, Iranian-planned, Iranian-coordinated plot." So, how should we take the fact that the Biden administration just gave Iran access to billions of dollars? And where will this war go from here? Glenn warns that Iran and Hamas are serious about destroying Israel. So, maybe Biden should reconsider how much of our military resources he's throwing at Ukraine.

GLENN: Fabian, a friend of mine from Israel wrote in. On the Sabbath, it felt like 1973 all over again. We woke up to the distant thunder of missiles and Iron Dome interoceptors. Something big was on. But our devices were off, because of Shabbat.

And so only our neighbors and the security services knew how big this was. We walked to morning prayers. Not halfway through the local border officer, interrupted the service, to say, an exceptional event was unfolding. And we should get the children inside the house. Terrorists had infiltrated in large numbers. And were moving through the countryside.

And we started seeing our friends and our neighbors, wearing green uniforms, instead of holiday white, heading off to serve.

The Sabbath, overridden by the need to protect life. One stopped, and told us to go home. In the afternoon, we heard machine guns over the horizon a cell must have want to be close. It is ugly. It's as ugly as it has ever been in my lifetime. We're in total shock. The same kind of shock in 1973. The same complete failure of intelligence, complete inadequacy of border protection systems. Utter shock of the burning tank this enemy couldn't defeat. It's the same enemy we thought.

That also, we thought they would never dare something like this.

It's 1948, the Independence War. Villages invaded. Residents slaughtered wherever they were found.

Here were also the same enemy as now, village streets are full of bodies.

Women and children massacred in their homes. Teenagers made to go door-to-door to get the residents to open their house, so they could all be killed, execution-style, more easily.

Hostages, including soldiers, but also once again women, children, grandmothers, taken to Gaza to faces God only knows what fate.

Shock is still profound. And anger, lots of it. Grief has started mixing in, as the funerals have started today. As a dad, my four children are still small. The youngest is six. The oldest is 11. My oldest boy is eight. So when I think about them. I thank God, we don't live near Gaza. My children are safe now. I have no illusions about what could happen to them, if Hamas got their hands on them. Proud of my children. They are scared. We don't show them the images. We don't let them listen to the news. But we also don't lie to them. The thunder over the horizon is not really thunder. And they know it.

They see the neighbors in uniforms leaving the village to go serve. They know there's a war on. They know we were attacked. They know hundreds are dead. They grasp at the level of a child. But they know it. We tell them the truth without gory details. And always accompanied with our advice to trust God and the IDF. But we do tell them the truth. We tell them that it's okay to be afraid. And the best way to deal with fear, is to not pretend it doesn't exist. Or that scary things don't. The best way is to look fear straight in the eyes, and tell them, we're bigger than it is.

It's not going to get the better of us. Lo and behold all of this actually seems to help. They are brave. They're patient. Well-behaved for the situation. Yes, they have nightmares. They're cupid up in a locked house for way too long. And that gets loud. But I'm proud of them. I'm a proud Israeli father. Glenn, thank you for your prayers. For what it's worth, you, your family, and America, are in my prayers, daily. America is in its own dark and ugly times of its own right now. Much of it, it seems by design, and it might get worse before it gets better. But I have hope. May God bless and keep you. Fabian.

Jason Buttrill, who is our chief researcher also was military intelligence, is here to tell us how did they get in, Jason?

JASON: Well, Glenn, it was a -- it was an unprecedented event. I would say, possible, but only impossible if it was just a few random terrorists within the Gaza Strip. But that's not what this was. This was an Iranian-backed, Iranian-planned, Iranian-coordinated plot to pull this off.

They came in from multiple areas, they came in from the sea. Boats from the sea. They came physiological paragliders through the air. And they came through a very coordinated and sophisticated attack from the land. They first used drones to knock out observation towers along the border. They then fired a barrage of rockets to distract, across the border. And then they went in with explosives, IEDs on the border fences.

I was in this exact same area, and some of the exact same towns that were hit the hardest, when we opened up our -- our -- our embassy in Israel. And the IDF spokesman then. He's been making several announcements over the past weekend, predicted this exact same thing.

He said, if we're not. If we do not respond the way they're responding, they will come into these areas. They will hit these towns.

That's exactly what they did, and it's absolutely insane that we're seeing the response that we're seeing from western governments today, offering just random support, even though why they do it in the background is they, you know, give funding to -- to Hamas through Palestine.

I mean, the -- the reactions and the way that they responded, has been actually atrocious.

And what we should be doing, is there was a blueprint for this, Glenn.

This did not have to happen. There was a blueprint for this to not happen.

It was the Abraham Accords.

It was exactly what the Trump administration had set forth. I saw the state department talking about recently, how there had been unprecedented peace.

Well, yeah. Of course there had been. Because there was a good plan to do this. But you abandoned it. You abandoned it when you started going back to Iran and incentivizing them, to do what they're doing now.

And it was absolutely insane, how we saw over the weekend.

You saw how Kirby, and the rest of the State Department, were trying to backtrack furiously.

And say, oh, no. The 6 billion we ave did nothing. It was in a secure account in Doha. It was for health aid and humanitarian aid.

Well, what do you think they will divert their funds to? Once they knew they didn't have to divert all the other money, the billions to medicine and food. What did you think they would devote that money to? Terrorist attacks. That's what they did.

It's shameful. It's absolutely shameful.

GLENN: By the way, here is Iran. Iran was having a military parade.

And it aired on channel one, in Iran.

We got this from memory TV. Cut three, please.

We have come here to tell the elder of Khomeini, that Israel will be raised from the face of the earth.

Death to Israel.

The officials of the Zionist regime make a mistake. The Islamic Republic will raise Tel Aviv and IFA to the ground!

This is very clear, and we're going to go into where this all comes from.

You know, I've been saying for years, that the next Holocaust will come from Iran. They are serious about raising Israel.

And vanishing, the Jew. Here's the Hamas leader to the Jews. Also, from memory.

This is airing now on television, all throughout the Middle East.

This is our call to our resistance to our West Bank. To our people.

You're resistance abroad. Our strategic allies. The sons of this nation.

Today is your day.

We are on the verge of victory. Let us be partners in creating this great victory.

In conclusion, we say to the enemy, that is making threats and going on a rampage, your threats, rampage and arrogance did not, will not help you. We say one thing: Get out of our land.

Get out of our faces. Get out of our Jerusalem, and our Al-Aqsa Mosque. We do not want to see you on this land.

This land is ours. Jerusalem is ours. Everything is ours.

So I think it's pretty clear. You know, what they want. And I don't think it's a two-state solution. Maybe people will listen. Now, these same people say different things. You know, when they're speaking in English.

But that's why we go to memory, which is a -- an organization, that translates, all of the news, into English. So you can read the subtitles, you know exactly what they're saying.

And they are very, very, very clear.

Here is cut five. Hamas, a commander calling for more attacks.

Listen to this. In light of the continuous crimes against our people, and in light of the occupation's rampage, and its disregard for international laws and resolutions. And in light of the American and western support of Israel and the international silence, we have decided to put an end to all of this, with the help of Allah.

So the enemy understands, that the time it could go on a rampage, without it being held accountable is over.

We declare the beginning of operation Al-Aqsa Deluge. To say to the young people in the West Bank from the various organizations: Today is your day to sweep out the occupiers, and their settlements.

From all of our lands and the West Bank, to make them pay the price for their crimes over the lean years. Organize your attacks on this settlements, with all your means at your disposal.

Torch the earth, under the feet of the plundering occupiers. Kill, burn, destroy, and shut down roads.

Make the cowardly occupiers understand that the Al-Aqsa Deluge is bigger than they think.

The day has come, when anyone who has a gun, should take it out.

Now is the time.

If you don't have a gun, take up your cleaver or your axe.

Molotov cocktail. Truck, tractor, or car.

They also go on to say, all of those who are living now in western lands, this leads to the question, how many people are here from Iran? From Hamas? From Hezbollah?

From anybody who wishes us ill?

We know the -- according to the Border Patrol, that 80 -- 80 people that were on our most wanted terrorist list, 80 have come across the border, that we caught.

How many are on the terrorist list, that we didn't catch?

We're going to -- you know, I thought about it this morning. This is -- I've always heard the phrase, you know, elections have consequences.

This is the most consequential election of my lifetime, 2020.

We have depleted all of our resources. Because we have Joe Biden in power. The world is on fire.

The -- the oil shortage, that is here.

The munitions shortage that we have.

Let me bring Jason back in, in one minute, to talk just about how are we going to respond?

And what could we possibly give them. Because we've given them so much already, in Ukraine.

This seems to be, in my opinion, exactly what the Soviet Union, what happened to them.

They're doing to us, what we did to the Soviet Union.

Can you play cut eight, as we go back to Jason?

This is the Palestinian supporter's march in New York City.

Then we have the Palestinian supporter's march in Europe.

Same thing.


Europe is in trouble. I think we're in trouble because we don't know who is -- who is here.

And how are we going to be able to fight on two fronts, if we were to get involved in any kind of war?

Jason.

JASON: Sorry. Seeing that is absolutely disgusting.

That's the equivalent of during the -- during the World War II, if we had known about what was happening to Jews. And then people marching in the streets of New York, parading and glorifying the Nazis. That is absolutely disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourself.

GLENN: And may I just say, the same thing is true.

Hitler said what he would do to the Jews. So does Hamas. So does Hezbollah. So does Iran. So does Syria.

They're very, very clear what they will do to the Jews. Kill them all.

JASON: Yeah. Believe them. Believe them when they say they will do this. Our response is going to be limited. I mean, we don't really have the resources to really respond. We've never really directly responded anyway. We've provided weapons. We've provided basically, you know, a big stick in the background, to wave it around and make sure that nobody else gets involved.

And that's what we will do here.

We will sit probably off the coast. With an aircraft carrier.

I think there's always one inbound. But we will hope that Iran doesn't directly get involved.

They're indirectly involved right now. Because they're using a proxy. They're using Hamas. They're using another group called Palestinian Islamic Jihad. They're using those groups within the Gaza Strip to wage this war. That's what they're doing now.

Will they directly get involved? That's the question right now. And that's when we'll step in. I hope that does not happen.

But I don't -- I don't want to be like every other western analyst that is looking for this.

I've been trained in the same way, that they have, to look at this.

They never account for the wild card. They never account for the crazy man. They never account for the Hitler.

That's what we're looking for with Hitler right now. There is a wild card. Don't be fooled in thinking, this is not deeply religious. This is deeply religious. This is not about geopolitics with Israel. That's like what's so drastically different, than say something like Ukraine. This is drastically different.

“I Knew They Were Lying”: Children’s Hospital Whistleblower Reveals FBI’s Threats

Is the FBI intimidating a whistleblower for exposing the reality behind a Texas hospital’s “gender affirming care” for children? That’s what the whistleblower, registered nurse Vanessa Sivadge, believes. She joins Glenn to explain why she spoke out against the Texas Children’s Hospital after reading about an anonymous whistleblower (Dr. Eithan Haim) in a report from Christopher Rufo, and how the Biden administration responded. The hospital, she says, was coercing and lying to parents so they would allow their children to receive transgender “treatments,” which would make them patients for life, and she had been asked to do things that went against her faith. But instead of caring about the children, the FBI wanted her help to unmask the first whistleblower. “It was very terrifying for me,” she tells Glenn. But she also emphasizes, “‘Do No Harm’ has to mean something…regardless of the consequences.”

"It Is By Design": What the Elites' "Class War" Did to YOUR Wealth

The household wealth of average Americans is disappearing while the government and top 1% elites are sucking it up like a giant vacuum. It’s the theft of a nation - an all-out class war - and the middle class is now on life support. Meanwhile, much of America is focused on culture wars that are meant to divide us and keep us distracted. So, Glenn exposes the even bigger threat that Americans are facing "by design": "You will own nothing, and you will like it." Plus, Glenn explains how it's all connected to China's increased purchasing of farmland and businesses in America and the Biden administration's attempt to sell parts of our National Parks.

Who Doomed the Petrodollar: America or Saudi Arabia?

Who Doomed the Petrodollar: America or Saudi Arabia?

There has been a lot of confusion lately about Saudi Arabia allegedly ending a 50-year-deal with the United States. The "deal" tied oil sales to the US dollar. But many have claimed that the deal never actually existed. So, what's really going on here and should Americans be worried? Financial expert Carol Roth joins Glenn to break it all down, including why she believes the United States and our Federal Reserve are really to blame for the petrodollar's destruction. Plus, Carol explains why the Biden administration can insist the economy has never been better, although our wallets can tell the opposite is true.

GLENN: Before we get to Carol, I want to give you some highlights from this Blaze media. And TheBlaze.com story.

Biden's phony numbers mask true economic pain. The official government numbers in the US economy have been contradictory and confusing for quite a while now.

What is clear upon closer examination, is that the federal government's overspending and overregulation are doing serious damage to the economy.

And we have yet to see the worst results of those policies.

The unemployment increase, seems to contradict recent signs that the economy has been weakening. In addition to the conflicting rise in unemployment. Other signs of deterioration. Include stagnant retail sales.

A slowing of consumer spending. Weak industrial product. Manufacturing orders. Increasing consumer debt.

Depressed by new housing starts. Falling annual earnings of full-time employees. And rising commodity prices. The Federal Reserve chairman, Jerome Powell, knitted, he believes the White House has been cooking the books.

This is the fed chair. Stating last week, you have payroll jobs, still coming in strong.

Even though, there's an argument, they may be a bit overstated. The only job growth, in the US, is for illegal aliens. Listen to that.

The only job growth in the US, are for those illegal aliens, who will work for below minimum wage. Which also explains why inflation hasn't spiked in the past year, as millions of illegal aliens were hired.

Legally resident American workers saw no job increase in the past year. And unlawful residents, willing to accept wages Americans can't are dragging everything down in the wage category.

With employment continues for American workers stagnant at best, the job market is another indicator that the economic growth is slowing, and the Federal Reserve should lower interest rates to reduce its suppression of economic activity.

However, they decided not to. Because it will -- it will spike inflation again.

The markets have already priced three expected interest rate reductions for the year.

However, suggesting a correction is in order.

Even so, the stock market stayed steady after the fed's interest rate announcement with the Dow falling slightly.

And the S&P 500 and NASDAQ, rising to new record highs.

Economist Robert Genetski. Genetski, calculates that the S&P 500 is currently overvalued by 34 percent.

If investors decide the market is near peak and start selling, taking their profits before prices, fall. There is more trouble.

This overspending continues from the federal government, as well.

In the first eight months of the current fiscal year, the current government has already accumulated more than $1.2 trillion, in additional debt.

With a staggering deficit of $348 billion last month alone.

Investors were reportedly believed the US economy is about to enjoy a significant expansion, because of AI.

That's boosting the stock markets. The shares in tech companies. Chip makers. And even utilities.

The government's stimulus injection may be waning, and the Fed's interest rate hikes are starting to bite, as indicated by the slowing housing and manufacturing production.

Higher interest rates hinder business from investing in production and consumers from spending on goods.

That support those businesses. Additionally, the Biden administration has implemented a regulatory program, that will directly cost the economy 3.95 trillion dollars in 2025.

And indirectly result in a staggering 75.05 trillion, in opportunity costs, for 2025, alone.

That might take a bite, no matter what AI is going to do.

Carol Roth is here with us.

Carol. Are we beginning to see all of the signs of the wheels coming off of this thing?

CAROL: I think we've been seeing the signs of the wheels coming off of this thing for quite some time.

And they're sort of hanging on by a thread.

Now, certainly, a lot of the numbers that are put forth. Are meant to window dress, and say, oh, no.

The wheels are still turning. And they're doing just fine. And they will last for a while.

We have seen cracks, and when you peel back the onion. And you look at things like the deficit to GDP, which are about two times the historic average at a time when they're telling us, there's an expansion. We know there's something wrong.

Because normally, when you have an expanding economy, that means you're taking in more revenue at the government level. And that means you're running less of a deficit because you have more money input.

What's happening now is the Biden administration has flipped that on their head. And they're using deficits to window dress the appearance, that we have growth.

And we're seeing that start to crack. Because even that, you know, window dressed growth is starting to come down.

We saw the first quarter GDP come in, almost a percentage point lower than expectations.

A first reading. The second reading was even lower.

So now, as of the second reading. We're at 1.3 percent. For the first quarter. And we're expecting a third reading.

And things keep getting revised and revised.

So all of the, you know, appearances that they're putting forth. And to make it seem like everything is looking great.

We've seen those cracks. And they're just becoming larger and larger.

GLENN: So do you think that there's any way possible, that anything, excuse the pun here, Trumps the economy.

I mean, they always say in elections.

You know, it's the economy, stupid.

And no matter how you window dress this.

Everyone knows, I don't have as much money, or my money doesn't go as far as it used to. And I'm having a hard time keeping up.

At almost every level, this is happening.

VOICE: So this is an interesting question.

There was a Monmouth poll, that came out yesterday.

That showed, far and away.

That the economy was the biggest issue.

You know, number one issue on people's minds.

But there's a disconnect by party. And obviously, when you have the -- the Republican side, and I would think to some extent. The independents as well.

There's more of a connection with the -- with the fiscal reality that's going on. And it becomes, you know, we believe so afford literally four more years of that.

There's a disconnect from the Democrats who don't believe in mass and reality anyway.

And so even though, they may be hurting, personally. They're going to make excuses. And say that it's for, you know, any sort of litany of other reasons. And it doesn't have anything to do with these specific policies, that we know have driven these outcomes.

You know, there's weather it's things like the American rescue plan. And they direct stimulus. That's literally called stimulus.

That overstimulated the economy. And caused inflation.

They're going to tell you, oh, no. Look, inflation has come down. Even though, they're still going to the same grocery stores, the same gas stations. Having to pay the same rent. And they're believing and buying into the gaslighting.

So that's my concern.

Is when you have so many people who are decoupled from reality. And can fed the propaganda that's gaslighting. And they're willing to -- basically, you know, they're cults. That that is not going to show up in the polls. The way that it should. If we were operating, you know, with some sort of normal baseline.

GLENN: Carol, I'm going to take a quick break, early here.

Because I don't want to interrupt you on this petrodollar thing.

Because I have seen stories that say, this is true.

Stories that say it wasn't true. I don't think there ever was a -- there wasn't a concrete deal. It was more of a handshake with Saudi Arabia. With the petrodollar. Wasn't it?

Or did we have a written deal?

CAROL: That's right. So I was surprised when I saw this as well. You know, I wrote about this in You'll Own Nothing. We have a whole chapter on it.

And there was a deal put in place. But never once did I come across anything that said, we have a specific expiration. But we know deals that, you know, are made. Can be shifted and changed at any point in time.

And I think that's the point we want to talk about.

GLENN: Correct.

Okay. So we'll do that next.

Because the petrodollar. If the world goes off the petrodollar.

That is -- that is the beginning of the end of the dollar.

It's just a matter of time. And what are people replacing? It with?

And so far, central banks are not replacing it with any currency at all.

We'll talk about it here, in just a second.

Okay.

So, Carol, explain why the petrodollar is so important.

VOICE: All right. So there's this story that was going around last week. That the Saudis had ended this agreement, that had been put in place in the '70s.

So what happened was that when the US went off the gold standard, they were very concerned over what was going to happen. So they created this secret delegation, that went to Saudi Arabia.

As part of a diplomatic chore. And there was a lot of chaos going on at that time. Not only did we go off the gold standard.

There was an oil embargo put in place by the Arab oil exporters. That set the price of oil sky-high.

So the big objective, was basically, they -- the US didn't want crude oil.

You know, energy. Which is obviously really what fueled growth around the world, to become an economic weapon.

And they knew they knew, okay. Well, now we're off the gold standard.

We had the currency. Wouldn't it be great to have somebody to finance their deficits?

So what they did, is they went to the Saudis. And they said, well, look, you come. You take -- you're going to agree to basically price oil in dollars.

And that's -- around the world, oil is going to be priced in dollars. And you will have all this excess money.

We want you to plow that back into US treasuries. Everything that you get in. We want to you plow that back into treasuries?

Why did they want that? Because that obviously helped the US finance their deficits at a very cheap rate.

He said with be okay. We'll do that. What we want in return, basically some economic and military support. And so they made this -- this deal. That was brokered.

The interesting part is there was a secret piece of it, and that was that the Saudis did not want everyone to know, that they had this huge Treasury stockpile. So for more than four --

GLENN: Why?

Wait. Wait. Wait.

Why didn't they?

CAROL: Because they must want everyone to know that this was sort of the underpinnings of the deals of how closely they were in bed, with the US.

GLENN: Okay. With the US. Okay.

CAROL: And that this is what they did. So this was actually uncovered by a Bloomberg report.

So for 41 years, what the US Treasury did when they broke out what central banks held the US Treasury, and you can go see if China holds this. Japan holds this.

They lumped Saudi Arabia in with 14 other nations. So basically, you could see, oh. We cut this special deal, and now it looks like now, that there's all this wonderful demand for treasuries around the world.

And it was kind of unclear that there was this alliance going on.

So what does that do? It creates a massive demand for the Treasury, because not only are the Saudis in there as huge buyers, but when you have -- you know, sort of a de facto basis. The oil price in US dollars. Then every other central bank will also want to make sure that they have a stockpile of a dollar equivalent security. That if they need dollars, they can cash in.

Of course, as opposed to holding actual dollars. When you hold the Treasury you do get some income. Or you get an interest rate. So basically, this has created huge demand for Treasuries. It means that the interest was artificially suppressed by that demand. And that the US government was able to finance their deficits.

It also meant that trade around the world, was done, you know, US dollars. So not only are these central banks, holding them in the reserves. There's all this trade that's happening in US dollars.

So this actually worked out for quite some time.

The Fed holding basically the world's reserve currency. And managing it. They held the US dollar fairly stable. When you saw the price of gas go up. That they would loosen monetary policy.

And when it was too low. They would tighten it, that they would stay in some sort of a range. Sometimes that was at odds with what was going on domestically.

But as the holder of the world's reserve currency, that was their job.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Stop for just a second.

I just want to make the point: This is right now, where we're about to see the change, and it's not happening now. It's already happened.

We -- when we got off the gold standard. We promised the world, we will never put ourselves, you know, absolutely first. And go off, and do crazy spending.

And, you know, just break everything for America.

And that's why, it was at odds, sometimes. The fed's policies.

Were at odds.

With the United States policy.

Or -- or -- wants and needs.

Because they had to balance it for the world.

And then what happened, Carol?

CAROL: Yes. So for the economic wonks out there, that's called the Triffin dilemma. You sometimes have to make these tradeoffs between what happens domestically and what happens internationally.

What happened, if we come back to today, is that the Fed has managed to hold the dollar, not stable.

Either for the world, or domestically. So it's not like they even made the tradeoff.

They just abandoned it altogether. But going back to 2005, they decided when the price of oil shot up due to China's increase in demand.

Hurricane Katrina, a whole bunch of things. That they just weren't going to play this game anymore, and that's when things started to crack.

Then we had the Great Recession financial crisis, and so on and so forth.

And the US government continuing to run these huge deficits.

And just, you know, creating a really challenging situation, economically.

So the big issue, if you are these countries around the world. That now have everything priced in dollars.

All your major commodities.

It's not just oil.

It's then extending into food.

Everybody is trading into dollars.

When you have these huge swings in the dollar, that means, that threatens as a nation.

Because now you may not be able to afford energy.

Or you may not be able to afford your food for your country.

That's a national security issue.

GLENN: Forty seconds.

CAROL: Countries are getting sick of that. We weaponize the US dollar. And at the end of the day, they're starting to move away from it. Which threatens our ability to have cheap financing and our standard of living.

GLENN: And so the Saudis did not break a deal.

We've broken the deal long ago.

And they're just all doing what would normally be done. It's no longer good for me.

It's got to be good for both of us.

And so they didn't stop the deal. They're just naturally moving away.

And it's -- the money is going to gold, not other currencies at this point. Correct?

CAROL: Correct. You got it. You nailed it.

These 15 Lines From “1984” Are No Longer Fiction

Glenn has been warning for a while now that George Orwell’s dystopian novel, “1984,” reads like a newspaper today. Well, he recently stumbled upon an article that lays it all out. Glenn reviews the article from The Federalist, “15 Times 2024 Was Orwell’s 1984,” that shows just how dystopian our society has gotten: "That is where we are, America. We are living in 1984."

GLENN: Let's say, hello, and welcome back to Stu Burguiere. hello, Stu.

STU: Hey, Glenn, how are you?

PAT: Good. Nice to have you. Nice to have you here.

Let's go true a couple of things here. I was reading a story about Donald Trump getting ready to go to the debate next week.

And he's preparing and people are speculating. Why would he ever accept?

Why would he -- so you think Donald Trump is not going to accept all of the baby conditions that Joe Biden has set for the -- for the debate?

Of course he will.

He's not going to be set. They won't say to him. Oh, well, we wanted to debate.

But he wouldn't. He'll do it. And he will do pretty well.

But Joe Biden is going to do better than he probably would, in any other format. And Donald Trump said, they'll probably pump him up.

Now, I don't know if -- I don't know if that is true. But it sure explains the performance of let's say, the State of the Union address. Where he was vigorous.

He was like, whoa!

Who is this guy?

I believe, and we won't know for decades, but I believe they are juicing him, on important nights.

This is not new, this shouldn't come as a conspiracy theory or a shock to anybody.

They did it with JFK, and they're -- they did it with FDR. In fact, FDR is probably the closest parallel to Joe Biden. FDR, the war was going well.

We're starting to turn the tides on -- on Germany. But we hadn't gone on to D-Day yet.

I'm sorry. FDR comes back from the meeting with Stalin.

And Churchill in Tehran. And as he comes back, he's got a really bad violent cough.

He starts to lose weight. He's constantly fatigued. His daughter Anna was so freaked out by all of it. That she pressed the doctors. Please, could you please have him see a cardiologist, at Bethesda. So he went in to Bethesda hospital, for examination.

And when he came out. Everything was great. No. The president is in perfect health. However, according to the medical notes, that were published, six decades later, that doctor diagnosed him with reduced lung capacity. Hypertension. Or high blood pressure.

Which we didn't have a way to treat back then. Acute bronchitis.

And most seriously, acute congestive heart failure. So now, they're not treating him, because we didn't have the medication.

The only treatment was regulating a patient's lifestyle. And, you know, herbal drugs. And then telling him, don't drink alcohol.

Tobacco. Don't do any of that. So that means in May of 1944. A month before D-Day. The daily schedule of the US. Unbeknownst to the American people, was only four hours a day.

He could only work and be involved four hours a day.

Now, he did that for a while. And he started to improve a little bit. But in July, of 1944, he had another doctor examine him. And said, he's not going to survive the term.

And he's got another full-term coming up.

And there's an election. And I don't think he will make it for the entire full-term in office.

Panel of experts were called in. They all examined.

And they all agreed. He's not going to make it.

Okay?

Did the American people know that?

No!

They didn't. It was too important to the country, to make sure that he looked strong and vigorous.

Well, what do you think is happening with Joe Biden?

Do you honestly think that things that have been done before, are not being done right now?

And what's disturbing about it, is these people work for us.

Now, I understand, maybe. Perhaps. In war. Although, no. I don't. No, I don't.

I need a president that is vigorous.
And if a president is not vigorous, especially at a time of war, I don't know if you're paying attention to what's going on in the world. But we are growing ever so close, to nuclear war.

There was a -- what was it. Oh, it was one of the former Soviet satellite states. And the president came out, and he's like, look, you can think, whatever you want about the United States. Or whatever you want about Russia.

But we're out of this. Because. Both cannot back away from this. And I think we're months away from a nuclear war. And somebody has to stand up and say, get to the peace table.

And it's -- it's very compelling. Very compelling to listen to him. So should we know about the President's health? Of course we should. But we won't.

Because we are living in the days of 1984. Listen to these 15 things, that Monroe Harlis (phonetic) pointed out in the Federalist. Fifteen ways that 1984 is 2024. Quote, from the book, the party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final and most essential command. Have you seen this? Have you seen the party demand you to reject your eyes and ears? All the time.

We're seeing it all the time. Two, endless wars. Quote, they add nothing to the wealth of the world, since whatever they produce is used for purposes of war. And the object of war is always to be in a better position in which to wage another war. End quote.

Have you seen the video of Joe Biden talking about American weapons being used for direct strikes inside of Russia?

And why -- why -- why do some people speculate, that the real purpose of this is to get rid of all our own old weapons so we can make new weapons, which will be better in the next war.

Doesn't this sound exactly like 1984. Number three, separating babies from mothers at birth. Quote, from the book, already we're breaking down the habits of the revolution which have survived from before the revolution.

Children will be taken from their mothers at birth, as one takes eggs from a hen. What exactly is the issue here?

Well, the issue is: The well-being of a child.

A living, breathing human, who was created for the sole purpose of being sold and ripped away from her mom.

This is -- this is something that is happening through surrogacy. And honestly, later in life, it is happening, because of political correctness.

Four, hatred of purity and goodness. I hate purity. I hate good is not.

I don't want virtue to exist anywhere. I want everyone to be corrupt to the bones. End quote.

Well, did -- did anybody see what -- what happened to Butker for being a Christian?

They tore him apart. Condemned him. Ray Rice. Nothing compared.

Five, the news lies. One knows the news is all lies anyway, from 1984.

Yeah. Well, what do we think? Do we all know that the news is nothing, but a lie? And now the news is saying, they are fighting advertise information?

Six, the destruction of the family. The sex impulse was dangerous to the party. And the party had to turn it to account. They had played a similar trick with the instinct of parenthood. The children on the other happened were systematically turned against their parents and taught to spy on them and report their deviations. The family had become, in fact, an extension of the thought police.

Do I need to give you an example? Seven, political correctness.

Don't you see the whole aim of newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?

In the end, we shall make thought crime literally impossible because there are no words in which to express it.

Producers. Birthing people. Chest feeding. Eight, persecution of political opponents.

Power is a means. It is an end. The object of persecution is persecution.

Reporter, President Trump refers to himself as a political prisoner and blames you directly.

What's your response, sir. He just smiles.

Nine, the innocent are suffering.

How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?

By making him suffer. Exactly barbecue by making him suffer.

Obedience is not enough. Unless he's suffering.

How can you be sure, he's obeying your will and not his own.

How about the 75-year-old Paulette Harlo, who is in poor health.

She also was somebody who -- I believe survived a -- a communist cooperation catch.

She's in prison for two years, for praying outside of an abortion clinic.

Truth is redefined. Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two equal four.

11, hypocrisy from government agencies. The ministry of peace concerns itself with war. The ministry of truth with lies. The ministry of love with torture. And the ministry of plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental. Nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy.

They are deliberate exercises in double think. Remember, the FBI is a terrorist organization.

It's the American Stasi. It exists entirely to terrorize the American people on behalf of a corrupt and evil regime.

No, no, no.

The FBI is the center of truth.

Contradicting beliefs. Double think means to the -- has the means -- the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one mind simultaneously, accepting both of them.

Just so we're clear here. Democrats who are campaigning against Trump. Based on dubious charges of sexual assault. They engineered.

Are still inviting people like Bill Clinton to headline big ticket events, along with his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. Even though that's been well-established, they're still okay with that.

Thirteen, dates altered. Every record has been destroyed or falsified. Every book, rewritten. Every picture has been repainted. Every statue, street building has been renamed.

Every date has been altered.

Well, in an attempt to replace Easter, the most important Christian holiday of the year with Transgender Day. I think, you know, that kind of does it. This is the beginning, and worse is coming.

Fourteen, no trust. We have cut the links between child and parent, between man and man. No man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer. But in the future, there will be no wives. There will be no friends. And statistics are lies.

The fabulous statistics continue to pour out of the telescreen.

As compared with last year, there was more food. More clothes.

More houses. More furniture. More cooking pots.

More fuel. More helicopters. More books. More babies. More of everything. Except for poverty, disease, crime, and insanity.

That is where we are America. We are living in 1984.
