We’re facing a new war, Glenn says. It’s a war on climate change, and it seems to be the left’s number one goal. In fact, nearly every single federal agency under President Biden’s power are being used NOT to protect and defend the Constitution, but to defend and protect the administration’s climate change agenda instead. Glenn explains the TERRIFYING signs that this agenda is a PLAN…one that could eventually lead to a national emergency, more control over YOUR life, and more presidential powers that go far-beyond what our Founder’s envisioned…
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Last Wednesday night, on our Wednesday night special, I told you how the federal government would use climate change as the national emergency.
Which would give the president the kinds of powers, that a president only gets, when we are attacked on the homeland and are at war.
This is coming. And I believe it is coming this fall. I'm always wrong in timing, but I don't think I'm too wrong on this.
Inflation and gas prices, currently, being blamed on Putin.
But soon, the blame will be shifted to global warming. Now, the powers that the federal government will hand over to the president, he's already using the administration and the arm of his office, as a weapon. We are already seeing changes to FEMA. To the SEC. To the FCC. To all of the agencies, that are supposed to protect and defend the Constitution, are now being used to protect and defend the agenda, against climate change.
These powers will include sedition. The power to silence people, and to silence dissent.
And you will see more of that tomorrow, with the January 6th, Thursday night, must see TV, that nobody is interested in watching. Except the extreme left. And they're doing everything they can, to get America to watch. Because this is a setup.
I have something really important, that I will begin to explain to you, at the bottom of the hour, hopefully.
We are going to talk to a guy who has been rotting for over a year now, in jail. He has -- he's been charged with things that don't make any sense. We have an interview with him. I believe this is the first interview he has done. He was part of January 6th. My understanding, is that he walked into the capitol. And walked out of the capitol.
But he is now being charged, and hasn't had his day in court, for over a year.
We're going to get his story. We'll talk to him, from jail. Where he is wasting away. It is kind of dicey. It's -- he's got 15 minutes on the phone. And then he has to hang up. And then call us back. So it's going to be a strange interview. But that happens next hour. But let me go back to the war that we are now facing. And I don't mean the actual hot war, with the military.
What I mean is the war on climate change. I want to play Janet Yellen from yesterday. But to understand this, you need to understand the war on climate, has become an all agency war.
So every arm of the government now under Joe Biden, must make climate change the priority. So I want you to listen to what she said yesterday, about gas prices.
You know that gas prices are not controlled by Putin. If we had continued to be energy-independent, as Trump had us, we would not have any of these problems right now. We would be making a ton of money, our economy would be booming, because we would be selling energy to the rest of the country. But we're not.
So here's Janet Yellen yesterday. What is she saying about gas prices?
VOICE: Given the global nature of these markets, that's virtually impossible for us to insulate ourselves from shots like the ones that are occurring in Russia. That move global oil prices. And look, over the medium term, the critical thing is that we become more dependent on the wind and the sun, that are not subject to geopolitical --
GLENN: Stop. We are looking now at moving towards wind and solar. That's the most important thing. And she's absolutely wrong. And lying to you. When she says, we have no way to prepare against these global shocks.
Yes, we do.
Energy independent. We've already achieved it, and Biden dismantled it. Now, here's Debbie Stabenow yesterday, on talking about the price of gas. Listen to this.
VOICE: Because I grew up on the issue of gas prices, after waiting for a long time. To have enough trips in this country, to finally get my electric vehicle. I got it, and drove it from Michigan, to here. This last weekend.
And went by every single gas station. It didn't matter how high it was. And so I'm looking forward to the opportunity for us to move to vehicles that aren't going to be dependent on the whims of the oil companies. And the international market.
GLENN: Okay. You don't have to worry about that. If you can -- remained energy independent. By the way, if memory serves me right, Stabenow was a very big leader in the -- in the carbon market. Do you remember when we were talking about this, in -- what? 2008 and '9.
And with a carbon market, where we were selling offsets. Barack Obama said, if my memory serves me right. And this is a quote. That your gas prices would necessarily skyrocket.
This is just another way through that same door.
To cripple our energy independence.
Now, we have another thing going on. In Germany, the supermarkets in Germany, put up notes on Tuesday, warning customers, that they are only allowed to purchase one critical product, as supply chain problems hit the European continent. A Twitter user shared images of the notes next to the products, like pasta and flour.
Ukraine isn't able to export its -- its -- its wheat.
That's -- this is because of the war. But what are we doing? How are we offsetting it?
Are we helping our farmers? We also, the fertilizer. I can count on one hand, the farmers I know that are using fertilizer this year. That will reduce the crops. By about 20 percent. Just that one thing.
Now, they're saying that we're going to have food shortages. Not just because of Ukraine. But also, fertilizer. Sure.
The drought. The drought. And the fires. Which are?
Because of global warming. Another global warming emergency. By the way, KFC and Australia, it's having to -- it's having to replace lettuce. They're struggling with the lettuce shortage, and they're putting cabbage on their burgers. Let's see, there's also KFC, Queensland, chicken shortages now. All across. The U.S. soaring food prices caused disruption in global farming. Energy costs. And the war in Ukraine. Have already started shifting American spending habits. The U.S. Agency for International Development, that's USA ID, the chief of that is -- see if this rings a bell. Samantha Power. Samantha Power is Cass Sunstein's wife.
She is a radical. She is somebody that likes global engineering.
She said, quote, I hope food shortages will push farmers towards green energy.
Global warming. In the meantime, Biden has now mandated that more ethanol is to be used for gasoline. Now, what does that mean?
Well, we now need to make 250 million more gallons of renewable fuel. This is to bring our -- our price of gas down. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
At the same time, Biden is saying, we need to make more ethanol. The agency also denied several exemptions for small refineries. Which granted the exemptions under President Trump. So they are trying. The EPA is saying, no, we're trying to bring gas prices down. But they're not. They're not doing everything they can.
They are thwarting everything that we can do. In the meantime, what are they asking us to do?
They're asking us now, for a lower gas prices. To burn food. Corn.
Already, corn has skyrocketed. 30 percent higher corn prices with other crops rising by 20 percent.
So we are -- we are causing our own food shortages. Then I get this story from the New York Times. Are you still with me? Following the emergency orders that are coming?
As the great Salt Lake dries up. Utah faces an environmental nuclear bomb, says the New York Times. They're talking about how the great Salt Lake is drying up. And how this is going to solve all kinds of problems. Even the ski resorts will suffer from this.
But eventually, it will have, you know, poison air. Arsenic in the air. Uh-huh.
Well, that sounds like an emergency, doesn't it?
It's all because of a record-breaking drought. Now, let me give you a couple of ear things. And then I'm going to show you historically, later today, exactly where this comes from. How this has worked in the past. And it is exactly the same plan that this president is using. But let me give you this: DHS. Department of Homeland Security. Bulletin, yesterday. Warned of a heightened threat environment.
The Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin Tuesday, warning of a heightened threat environment over the next several months as they monitor both the risks of domestic terrorism, and foreign adversaries, looking to sow scored in the US, to promote acts of violence.
The United States remains in a heightened threat environment, as noted in the previous bulletin. And several recent attacks have highlighted the dynamic and complex structure, and nature of the threat environment.
In the coming months, the DHS says, we expect the threat environment to become more dynamic.
As several high profile events, could be exploited to justify acts of violence against a range of possible targets.
Now, this is weird.
Because we have yesterday, a compass care. A pro-life reproductive health organization, that services patients in the Rochester and Buffalo area.
It was firebombed by pro-abortion terrorists. Compass Care wrote in a blog post that its office was firebombed. The pregnancy center said the windows and the reception room and the nurse's office were broken and fires were started.
On the building was graffiti. That read, Jane was here. That is a radical pro-abortion terrorist, Jane's revenge. Which took responsibility for the firebombing of a similar pro-life organization in Madison, Wisconsin. Just last month.
However, even though they have posted online a night of rage. When the U.S. Supreme Court hands down its ruling in Dobbs versus Jackson. The women's health organization is -- that's, you know -- that's Jane's revenge, I guess. They have called for a night of revenge. And have urged militant action, they have selected a time of 8:00 p.m. for actions nationwide to begin, whenever the court hands down its decision. So wait a minute.
Maybe that's what they're talking about. No. That's not what they're talking about.
In fact, no longer's governor, not only ignored the violence. But instead, earmarked $35 million in taxpayer funds, to increase security, at abortion clinics.
Then the legislature passed a bill, investigating pro-life pregnancy centers, precisely because they do not perform abortions.
Are you seeing what's coming yet? Oh. One more story. Not to worry about emergencies. The center for disease and prevention has updated its guidance last week for travelers wishing to protect themselves against monkey pox. They said, wear a mask. Wearing a mask can help protect you from many diseases, including monkey pox. Late Monday night, that recommendation was deleted. Why? The CDC said they removed the mask recommendation for monkey pox travel health notice, because it caused confusion. Really? Is this possibly yet another health emergency? More in a second.
