Lots happened on the campaign trail this weekend. First, Representative Ilhan Omar said during a rally for Bernie Sanders that it's time for our president to fight Western imperialism…Meanwhile, Kamala Harris argues that America is a racist nation. She said recently during an interview with Axios on HBO that she's concerned about her campaign's electability, not sure if Americans are ready to put a woman of color in the highest office. Glenn says that's not what America is today…why else does everybody want black women — like Michelle Obama, and Oprah Winfrey — to run? And Dennis Prager disagrees with Kamala wholeheartedly. He told Bill Maher on Friday that the notion America is a racist nation is one big, left-wing lie.
Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.
Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
During a campaign stop in Aurora, Colorado recently, a woman named Lauren Boebert confronted Beto O'Rourke about his recent statement that "hell yes" certain guns — like the AR 15 — would be confiscated during his presidency. Boebert said "Hell No," then explained to Beto why a gun confiscation will done nothing good for the safety of America.
Never forget the lives lost on September 11th, 2001. We give tribute to the nearly three thousand people murdered on 9/11 -- whether inside the World Trade Center, the brave men and women who ran towards the danger, or aboard the four planes. And we remember the millions of Americans who stood together in the days after.
