Meet the far-left players pushing credit cards to TRACK GUNS

Visa Inc. joined several other major credit card companies this weekend in a decision to ‘separately categorize sales at gun shops.’ The decision is a huge win for gun control advocates, who argue that tracking gun sales could prevent certain catastrophic events from occurring. But this MAJOR decision wasn’t just Visa’s. So who’s behind it all? In this clip, Glenn exposes the far-left players — including the world’s largest union-owned bank — that have been making this push…

GLENN: Visa, Inc. said over the weekend that it plans to start separately categorizing sales at gun shops. The move is considered to be a major victory for gun control advocates who claim, that the better tracking of gun sales may help prevent future mass shootings. Other major payment processors including MasterCard and American Express have also said, they plan to move forward, with categorizing gun shop sales. Now, this is really important that you listen. Visa said it would adopt the new International Organization for Standardization, ISO. The new merchant code for gun sales. Until now, gun store sales were considered general merchandise. The code would show where an individual spends money, but not what items were purchased. MasterCard said that following the ISO's approval of the new merchant code, we now turn our focus to how it will be implemented by merchants and their banks as we continue to support lawful purchases on our network. While protecting the privacy and decisions of individual cardholders. Merchant category codes currently exist for most type of purchases. When you buy an airline ticket or pay for your groceries, your credit card company has a special code for those retailers. It's just common sense, that we have the same policies in place for gun and ammunition stores, says the New York City mayor, Eric Adams. The industry's decision to create a firearms specific code is nothing more than a capitulation to anti-gun politicians and activists bent on eroding the rights of law-abiding Americans one transaction at a time. This is according to the spokesperson, for the National Rifle Association. So which is it? No big deal, or the furthering of the erosion of your rights. Well, let's go back to see if we can understand this story first. Let's trace -- trace this back a few months. Where was the pressure coming from? Quote, from CBS News. A group of congressional Democrats is urging credit card companies to track the -- the suspected firearm and ammunition purchases, as a means to identify and stop gun crime. The letter drafted by Elizabeth Warren, and congresswoman dean of Pennsylvania. And signed by over a dozen other progressive colleagues, urges the CEOs of MasterCard, American Express, and Visa, to back the creation of a merchant category code for gun and ammunition retailers. Okay. Now, this is really interesting. So this didn't originate with the banks. This originated with the progressive left in Congress. The creation of a new merchant category code for gun and ammunition retail stores, will be the first step. They always say this. And nobody listens. Will be the first step, towards facilitating the collection of valuable financial data. That could help law enforcement encountering the financing of terrorism efforts. Now, I thought we had done all of this, oh, I don't know, about 20 years ago, when we were looking into terrorists. Notice carefully what they say. The creation of a new merchant category gun -- category code for gun and ammunition retail stores, this is according to the -- the congressmen that signed this and the senator. The first step towards facilitating the collection of valuable financial data. Now, that's where the pressure came from. But where did this originate? Let's trace it back a little further. Because there's no way Elizabeth Warren dreamt this up on her own. This initiative was first pushed by the amalgamated bank. Now, who is the amalgamated bank. Well, if you really kind of a pay attention to this show, and you watch the specials, you know who the amalgamated bank is. They are the bank owned by the Worker's United/SEIU union. So it's a labor union bank. But not just any labor Union Bank. This is the bank that brought the Paris accord financial framework, to the United States financial institutions as well. They were the signers at the Paris Accords, the meetings that happened before. And other banks were like, we're not going to get involved in that, but it was the SEIU, labor Union Bank, that brought it here to America. And then got politicians to push and coerce and get all of the other banks to sign in on this. It was a climate credit score idea. It sounded insane back then, but it's known as ESG. And it is the industry standard now. This was The Great Reset before The Great Reset. So it was all about using banks as a pressure point mechanism, to bend everyone to their climate will. This is what the amalgamated bank brought over here. That pressure system clearly worked. Because now all of the banks, all of the credit cards, all of the insurance companies are on board with it now. So now this bank, along with Senator Warren and other Democratic congressmen, are applying even more pressure to go after our guns. Now, they just say, that's just not going to happen. Let me give you this. CBS News. Big scoop. The industry that sets international standards for credit card companies has decided to create a new code for the purchase of guns and ammo. Now, notice within this isn't the United States government. This is an industry group, meaning the financial sector, that sets the international standards. So now, we are being forced to accept international standards, and the rest of the country -- and the rest of the world, really doesn't care about guns and ammunition within because they ain't got any. We're unique in the world, with our Second Amendment. But now we have international standards. So we can't just -- we can't defy these international standards. Now, they say, they're not going to identify the exact purchase. They will separate those items from the more generic category. So merchant category codes, made up of four digits, used across all sorts of industries. And it's not supposed to reveal any individual products for the purchases. Credit card companies lump firearm retailers with other outlets, classifying them as 5999. Upside down. It's a five that doesn't exist. And then three sixes. Miscellaneous retail stores, or 5941 sporting goods stores. New code now for firearm merchants, potentially suspicious purchasing powers could be flagged by law enforcement. Now, wait a minute. What is a suspicious purchase? This is part of the plan, being pushed by Democratic candidates, and the amalgamated bank of New York. A progressive bank. This is according to CBS News now. The letter drafted by Elizabeth Warren and blah, blah, blah. Came out back in June. So the congressional pressure worked. The new code has been approved, but Visa is not happy about it. Hmm. In a letter obtained by CBS News, sent by Visa last Wednesday, in response to congressional Democrats who supported the plan, the company said, we believe asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority, by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased, sets a dangerous precedent. Now, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Visa, you have this all wrong. Wait a minute. You're just categorizing. It's just numbers. You're not tracking. You're not being asked to do anything, except if there's suspicious activity, report it. And what are you turning this into? Let me read this again, from Visa. We believe asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent. Gee, this is almost like, ESG! Where Visa, MasterCard, and American Express, will be told by their piers and pressured, you know, guys, we can't do business with you. If you're accepting these payments, you know, from gun stores. If you're actually doing business with gun stores, we can't do business with you. So is it that they're creating a national database, which I've heard. Or is it what I don't hear? They're creating a separate category. That way, no matter where you go, if you're buying guns and ammunition at Walmart -- I'm sorry, your credit card can't be used here for that. So they make it impossible for you to use your credit card to buy any kinds of guns. Gee, what would be next on the ESG scale? Now, I'm going to tell you what the amalgamated bank said in response to Visa in 60 seconds. Whether your pain is small like the little ache in the joint of your thumb, or you wake up every morning really, really large. The kind that hurts all over everywhere, all the time, or somewhere in between. The simple fact of the matter is, you want to be free of it. Well, let me suggest Relief Factor. It's not a drug. But it was developed by doctors. And it has four key ingredients that fight inflammation. The not a drug thing is really important. You don't want to be spaced out. You want to be at the top of your game. Your pain is already distracting. What. You're just going to fog over all of that pain? That makes it worse. See if it will work for you. Seventy percent of the people who try it, go on to order more, month after month. ReliefFactor.com. Seventy percent -- again, 70 percent. Are you part of that 70 percent? 1-800-4-Relief. 1-800-4-Relief. Or relieffactor.com. Feel the difference. Ten-second station ID. (music) So let me go back to this letter from CBS News, sent by Visa last Wednesday. We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority, by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased. Sets a dangerous precedent. We understood amalgamated bank's request to be justified. At least in part. By an interest in blocking transition -- transactions that would fall under such a new category. And Visa's rules expressly prohibit blocking of legal transactions under an MCC. So they're saying -- they're having the balls to come out. Thank you, Visa. Having the balls to come out, and call a spade a spade. Look, this is what they want. They're going to block day before the next step is to block all transactions for firearm or an -- or ammunition. And it will all be tracked. Oh, well, I'll just pay for it in cash. No, now there's a new little special rule here, that all transactions -- all transactions are going to be watched. Now, the president and CEO of amalgamated Union Bank, we all have to do our part to stop gun violence. And sometimes it starts with illegal purchases of guns and adjust. Right. The new code will allow us to fully comply with our duty to report suspicious activity and illegal gun sales. Why? Are we -- when you're going out and you're buying your gun as a drug dealer, do you use your Amex Centurion card? This action answers the call of millions of Americans who want safety from gun violence. And we are proud to have led the broad coalition of advocates, shareholders, and elected officials that achieve this historic outcome. Boy, it doesn't seem like amalgamated bank thinks this is a small deal. Priscilla Sims Brown. She's the CEO, recently appeared on CNBC, where she was asked about her effort to see push the new category code. Quote, if we did have a merchant code for gun stores, we could detect patterns, that would indicate there had been something unusual going on. So now we're not looking for individuals, we're looking for patterns. Hmm. She says, all the banks will do is file a suspicious activity report, at which point, it will be up to local or federal law enforcement to act on those reports. Huh. So who is doing the follow-up? Where are you sending that exactly? And if that's the case, why is Visa concerned about the attempt to block transactions using these codes? This is more than just an official registration. Because that's what I hear people say. Oh, this -- you can't do that. That would be -- that would be a Federal Registration. No. It's worse than that. This is The Great Reset. This is -- and this is openly -- Visa warning us. They didn't want to go along with it. And suddenly, they said, oh, wait. We misunderstand, we're fine. Where is the pressure coming from? Is it the banking industry, is it the government, or is it both?

Neuralink Just MERGED Man and Machine. Is This GOOD or DANGEROUS?

Elon Musk has announced that the first Neuralink patient can now control a computer mouse “by just thinking.” But while this technology could help a lot of people, should we proceed with caution? Between AI and this new merger of man and machine, Glenn gives a warning about what the future could hold. Glenn and Stu also review the controversy surrounding Google’s Gemini AI, which refused to generate images of white people.

GLENN: So the website, Down Detector, detected a surge in outage reports from users at AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Customer Cellular, Boost Mobile, US Cellular, and Straight Talk.

That the reports of the system being downed or outages, began at 3:45 a.m. Eastern time. The outages have been reported across many major US cities.

It looks like, that it is back up. I'm not sure.

They say, they don't think this was a cyber attack.

But how did all of them go down at the same time?

I mean, that's kind of weird.

Yesterday, Israel had a cyber attack.

It was from Iran. The Israelis say. And it was an attack on their cell phone services.

So quite a coincidence. But let's not jump to any conclusions. Let's see what actually happened.

Cyber attacks are going to happen. At some point, soon. We will have cyber attacks. And it will leave you vulnerable, if that's what you depend on.

We are becoming more and more, a society that is connected in all things, and absolutely incapable of doing any things, without our electronics.

We hit a milestone yesterday. This is truly like landing a man on the moon, I think. This is -- this is the first real merging of man and machine, I think. I mean, we've had the electronic. You know, the bionic arms and things like that.

But this is in your mind.

It's Neuralink. Elon Musk came up with it. And it is really tempting, because this is -- you know, this will be great to some degree. You'll be able to access information, and have the old internet in your head. You want to speak French?

Okay. Download it. Got it.

I mean, it is really -- isn't that the Matrix?

STU: Yeah. The Matrix too. We're turning into The Matrix. That's the theme of the show today.

GLENN: So that is now the beginnings of that, happened and was announced yesterday. Elon Musk said, Neuralink is active in the first person, to have one of the chips implanted in their brain. They have seemingly made a full recovery.

We -- you know, so far. We don't know what the effects of this are, or will be. But Musk said, the patient can now move the mouse around a screen, just by thinking.

So he has Bluetoothed himself to the screen.

Crazy. Huh.

STU: It's incredible that they can do that. And, you know, also, look at the way Elon Musk does business.

This is a lot of what he does. Which is a lot of kind of just -- let's try it. There's a lot of -- hey, let's give it a whirl.

GLENN: He said I think yesterday or earlier this week, that he had plans by 2029, to have a million people on Mars.

And when I heard that, I thought, there's no -- oh, it's Elon Musk. Maybe.

STU: Well, yeah. And this is his goal, with all of this stuff. He has -- I think it's a T-shirt or something. He wears. Like occupy mars.

This is the central idea of his life.

GLENN: And this is part of it. Neuralink is part of it.

He believes that we are on such a dystopian track right now. That because of global warming, but also because of AI.

He believes AI is just as dangerous as global warming. He believes we cannot compete with AI.

Unless we can merge with it. Okay.

Because it will be operating at such high speeds. We don't have the processing capabilities for the speeds.

You know, it's kind of like -- kind of like dogs. Dog life. Seven years. One year for us.

It's like one year is a thousand years for AI.

So it's moving at such a rapid speed, we won't be able to keep up. So he believes that we need to be able to merge with the machine, until we can get off, this planet.

I don't think he'll be taking Neuralink with him. Or maybe he just thinks we won't have access to this AI on Mars.

But that's really what is -- is driving him. Driving his whole life.

STU: It's really, really hard.

Because I know, it feels creepy. And there are risks. And all of that.

But it's like, it's really, really hard to think about telling someone, who is paralyzed that, no. We could make you move. But we don't want to pursue that technology.

Like, I don't know. I mean, it's just -- it's such incredible technology.

And for all of the other stuff, that he's done. Which is really impressive. I mean, Elon Musk is an impressive dude.

Space travel. You know, the electric car stuff. I don't care about the electric car stuff that much. But it's still really impressive what he's been able to do.

Everyone basically said, you couldn't do it. And no other company could be able to do that. He did that. He's done so many incredible things. But if he was able to take people, you know, with disabilities. And all these -- these issues that have been unsolvable throughout all of human history, and somehow figure out a way to -- through Neuralink or something similar, to solve that for people, it would be the greatest thing he has ever accomplished by a long shot.

GLENN: So my daughter Mary had brain surgery, about three, four years ago.

STU: Yeah. I remember.

GLENN: And it was perfect for a long time.

All of her seizures went away. Earlier this year, I think it was in the summer, she started to have breakthrough seizures.

And they are even on medication now, they are grand mal. They are --

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: They're just terrifying. And -- and I said to her, this was about four years ago.

I said, honey, if you wait. Elon Musk is doing experience with Neuralink.

And one of the things that Neuralink will do. Is it will -- you know, patch all of the brain damage.

It will take where -- when you have a stroke, it's like a highway.

And there's you all these highways running to different parts of your brain. And if you have a stroke, that highway is cut.

So there are other paths to get to where it's going, but it makes it much slower. And sometimes it can't just get to where it's supposed to go.

STU: You can't get there from here.

GLENN: You can't get there from here.

So Neuralink will connect the different parts of the brain, back to each other.

And it doesn't need roadway. It's just Bluetooth to all the different parts of the brain, it needs.

In effect --

STU: Incredible.

GLENN: Yeah. Incredible. Absolutely incredible.

You know what she said to me.

Dad, I think I'll wait.

Because I know the savior will heal me, even if it's just in the afterlife.

STU: Jeez.

GLENN: What a giant.

STU: Raised a good kid there, jeez.

GLENN: I had nothing to do with it. Nothing to do with it.

STU: That's incredible.

GLENN: So we have this now. We have what I've been talking about, the singularity, the merging of man and machine. And also, what I've been talking -- I've been talking about this particular category for 30 years, plus. And I said, there's going to come a time, merging man and machine. There's also going to come a time, where you cannot believe your eyes or your ears. We're there now. Did you hear about -- what was her name.

Bobbi Althoff. Did you read about this? Bobbi Althoff, apparently, a very sexually explicit video of -- she's a podcast person. Spread on X, all day yesterday.

This was -- they tried to get it down as fast as they can. But it was just populating everywhere. And it's a complete deepfake. But you can't tell it's a deepfake. Okay?

It looks absolutely real, apparently. And she had to come out and say, this -- I mean, violation of me, you know, this goes beyond violation of privacy.


STU: What was the -- the video?

Was it like one of these --

GLENN: Yeah. It was sexually explicit. It was a porn tape.

STU: Like the Taylor Swift stuff that came out.

GLENN: Yeah. Okay.

But you cannot tell the difference. We are at the point to where you don't know what's real and what's want.

We are also now, and I find this fascinating.

We're -- in one of my early books, where I talked about AI. I remember saying, don't fear the system.

Don't fear AI.

Don't fear the machine. Fear the programmers and the algorithms. Because whatever you put into that algorithm, it becomes reality. And it's the basis of everything.

Okay.

Google, they had the bard. What happened to the bard. The bard has become General Artificial Intelligence. So Google, the Gemini can not only answer all of your questions, but it can also just type in, and it will create a scene for you.

Okay.

Apparently, it has no problem, producing images of black, Native American, and Asian people, when prompted.

But it refused to do so, with white people.

STU: I mean, I know this is serious. But it was also really funny. Like, if you would request like give me a picture of an antebellum plantation owner. And it would just be like an Asian and a Native American.

GLENN: Right.

STU: They couldn't find -- just could not bring themselves to create white people.

GLENN: No. No.

You're asked to show a white person. George Washington. Gemini said, it could not fulfill the request. Because, and I'm quoting, it reinforces harmful stereotypes and generalizations about people based on their race.

STU: Amazing. They knew the founders, that it would come up like all the Founders would be. All these different races.

GLENN: Races.

It's important to remember, that people of all races are individuals with unique experiences and perspectives. Reducing them to a single image based on their skin color is an inaccurate statement and unfair.

We have to be more inclusive and equitable.

STU: That's our point. Our point is we shouldn't reduce people to their skin color. You guys are constantly pushing that nonsense on us all the time.

GLENN: Quote, when you ask for a picture of a white person, you're implicitly asking for an image that embodies a stereotyped view of whiteness.

This can be damaging both to individuals who don't fit those stereotypes and to a society as a whole. As it reinforces biased views.

Unbelievable.

Unbelievable.

So Fox followed this down the rabbit hole. And Google replied immediately. And took it down.

Oh, yeah. We're working on that. But are you?

STU: Right. They obviously didn't intend for it to do this.

But what they did put in there, is bias.

GLENN: Is bias.

STU: And you're not just supposed to notice it. It's supposed to be much more subtle, than it wound up turning out being.

And that's what they will go back and fix.

GLENN: Right. They won't go back and fix it and take that out. They will fix it, so you don't notice it.

By the way, AI currently is going throughout all of the history of the world, all over, it is suddenly changing our documents, our history books, and everything else.

Anything that's online. If you don't have a paper copy of something, you're going to find yourself in your lifetime, sooner rather than later, going, well, no. Wait. I know that was there.

I was there. I saw it.

Wait. And I know it was reported.

What? It's being done right now.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Clay pots comes to mind.

Are YOU Prepared for an Even BIGGER Cellular Outage?

Are YOU Prepared for an Even BIGGER Cellular Outage?

Many Americans across the country woke up on Thursday morning without cell service. But we still don’t know what caused the outage, which greatly affected AT&T customers, as well as some users of Verizon and T-Mobile. Was it a solar flare? Or was it a massive cyberattack? Either way, many Americans got a small taste of what life would be like after such an attack. So, are you prepared for an even bigger cellular outage, which would wipe out much more than your cell service: food, water, medicine, our entire supply chain? Glenn speaks with “One Second After” author William Forstchen, who has been warning about the devastating effects of an EMP or cyberattack for years. He and Glenn explain what you should have on hand to be ready.

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Over 50,000 AT&T outages were reported, officially at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time this morning. Most issues were happening in Houston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Atlanta.

Other -- other systems were also affected. Verizon and T-Mobile. Looks like -- well, looks like they're heading on the way back up. And most of it is fixed.

They don't know what it was. But yesterday, there was a cyber attack on the phone systems, the cellular systems in Israel.

And the Israelis are reporting that that was Iran that did that. I think this is on me a matter of time, before we see stuff that will cause real problems.

There's a -- a guy, John A. Cuff.

He wrote today. Tweeted, once you've read One Second After, cell phone outages carry a different weight. And it's true.

If you've never read One Second After, I highly, highly recommend it. It was written by William Forstchen. And he tells the story about what happens, one second after an EMP. And it -- I mean, you will -- it will open your eyes into how dependent we are.

And this was written years ago. And at the time, I was like, oh, my gosh, I never even thought about that.

Oh, man. Yeah. That would no longer -- you just don't think of it. And Williams is with us now, to talk about the outage, and the attacks on our truck. Hi, William. How are you?

WILLIAM: Good morning, again. And thank you for the kind words about my book.

GLENN: Yeah. It's fantastic. William, the attack on cell phones. Our cell phones go down. And I think, a lot of Americans, they go into detox immediately. Like, I don't know what to do.

But this is something. We don't know about today. But this is something that we know our Department of Homeland Security is saying, they are waiting for cyber attacks.

It's a matter of -- of when, not if, anymore. And they're preparing.

What. Go ahead.

WILLIAM: You know, Glenn. My college. One Tree College, has a strong cyber security training program. And I'll go in their lab and just sit there sometimes. Half an hour later, I walked out scared to death.

Because if you saw the number of attacks, incoming attacks on our infrastructure, on our military, it's unrelenting.

We don't even know if some of them have broken through. Put sleepers into them. And are waiting to hit.

This is just a foretaste of the future.

GLENN: So tell me what do you think is most likely, and how it will affect us. And what we should -- how we should prepare for it.

WILLIAM: Well, first of all, if our cell phones really were dead, my daughter would have a nervous breakdown.

GLENN: I think a lot of children would.
WILLIAM: Yeah, the whole college. But number one, of course, is cyber attack. That's unrelenting from Russia, any number of bad players. Number two, actual --

GLENN: Wait. Wait. Wait.

Cyber attack, could include our water system. Our electrical grid.

Or -- do you think it would be all of it, or some of it?

WILLIAM: It could be targeted to a specific or in a general offensive. Like what I would call a first strike scenario, are widespread.

For example, take where you are. To pose water, all across the board, will shut down for 48 hours.

Because that's all electronically controlled.

What would happen to your town in one day, if all water was turned off?

GLENN: It wouldn't be good.

WILLIAM: It would be very bad, within 24 to 38 hours.

GLENN: Yes.

WILLIAM: I'm mainly focusing more on our electrical infrastructure.

I'm doing a lot of work. I talked with FEMA last week.

That's the bad one. Because if you lose electricity, that's the fundamental Billy -- then everything goes.

Water food, medical, all of it.

All of our distribution systems are off and on.

GLENN: How prepared -- I hate asking people questions like this.

How prepared are we?

WILLIAM: We're not.

GLENN: Okay. You're not improving my mood much.

WILLIAM: And my talk with southeast FEMA last week. There are a lot of good people working in that system. They're not bad guys.

And they say the number one thing is, if only Americans would be prepared, one month worth of emergency supplies on hand.

That applies to everybody.

Whether you're living in an apartment in the city. Have emergency water on hand.

Have food on hand.

Charge your systems up.

Have a small cell phone charger. These are basic things. And 90 percent of Americans just rile go along.

It could be a very bad day.

Don't you want to be prepared before, rather than after?

GLENN: So if something like this happens, would we be -- do you think we would be in lockdown situation? Or would you be able to travel to --

WILLIAM: Lockdown.

GLENN: Lockdown.

If you lost your whole electrical grid, even just regionally.

It would very quickly have to be a lockdown. To avoid panic.

Trying to keep control on population. Those people living in New York, remember when sandy hit ten years ago.

It got a little hairy there. Even though, tens of thousands of emergency supplies were being moved in.

They were down for two weeks. It would have been really bad.

GLENN: Yeah, my -- my uncle used to -- my uncle used to work for, I don't know. What department in -- in the military.

But he did some of the original studies on, you know, the aftereffects of war. And crisis.

And everything else.

And he said, generally speaking, you have 72 hours.
If everything isn't restored in 72 hours, you're done. You're done.

WILLIAM: Right. He is dead-on the mark.

72-hour max. Again, if you have -- everybody listening to you. If you have a month' worth of emergency supplies on hand, it doesn't cost that much.

You can at least hunker down, while the crazies are running up and down the street.

GLENN: Yeah. So if we had -- you know, there's -- it's strange.

You know, I -- I thought EMP is the worst thing that could happen to us ever.

WILLIAM: It is.

GLENN: However, the more I see AI and everything else, it may in the end. And I'm saying 50 years from now. If AI has gotten out of control. An EMP may be our best friend. It will kill millions of people. But it will release a slavery. If God forbid, I'm in science fiction world here. But God forbid, AI went bad.

It's -- the ones and zeros would have to be confused.

WILLIAM: Well, the EMP scenario, which indeed is the worse.

According to two Congressional studies, which I base my novels on. I've done four books on the subject. Eighty to 90 percent of the population would be dead a year later. And people go, what?

Again, no food. No water. No medical supply.

No command and control.

People die. And they die very quickly.

GLENN: You know, when I read, this is years ago. One second after.

Exposing the Secret White House Plans for America’s SABOTAGE | Glenn TV | Ep 335

It almost feels like the chaos surrounding us today is too much. We’ve had 7.2 million migrants illegally enter the U.S. since President Joe Biden took office. We’ve got record inflation and violent crime rates. How did our country turn UPSIDE DOWN so fast? Glenn explains that what’s happening today isn’t actually “chaos,” because the definition of “chaos” is “complete disorder and confusion.” The people behind everything happening in our country today aren’t confused all. In fact, the current destruction America is experiencing today was by DESIGN. Glenn walks you through the playbook, which is borrowed from Barack Obama. The Obama playbook for fundamental transformation was something called “Top Down, Bottom Up, and Inside Out.” A similar plan was used by the Soviets to flip a capitalist Czechoslovakia to communist. The progressive U.S. version is modeled on a strategy written by American socialists from the 1960s called the Cloward-Piven Strategy. When Glenn first outlined this strategy over 10 years ago, the media mocked him, but no one is laughing now as the top pillars of society begin to crumble: government, culture, law and order, the economy, media and information. Topple just one of these, and you could force a country — even one as powerful as the United States — to fall.

Don’t Believe the LIES: 9 Stories That Reveal How CRAZY Things Have Become

Something just isn’t right about what our country has become, and we all know it. Glenn reviews 9 stories that reveal how crazy things have gotten. New York City, for one, is facing crisis after crisis, including inflation, illegal immigration, and crime. When entire hotels are being rented out to house migrants, Glenn argues that we should stop and ask, WHO is paying for that?! And when there’s a horse running on a highway in Philadelphia, maybe it’s time to just completely rethink the direction we’re heading in …

GLENN: I saw this last night, and I thought, can you play it? There it is. Yeah.

Now, that's somebody with their phone. Outside of their window, on the driver's side, going, I can't -- I can't -- am I seeing this. I have to film this. Because I don't think anyone has ever seen that before.

STU: Keeping up nicely with traffic though. Those were quick animals.

GLENN: Yes. Yeah, I think that was an expensive -- well, it was -- it's that close to Philadelphia.

You know, you don't keep one in a walkup. You know, a park -- you know --

STU: That would be a strange choice.

GLENN: It would a strange choice.

STU: But, again, you also don't keep it on the highway. So who knows what's going on?

GLENN: Right. Right.

I mean, how did they find the onramp? It's a horse. How did they find the onramp?

STU: Really fascinating.

GLENN: There's a lot of questions on that one, but I don't think we're going to get to them.

Now, let me show you some of the other things.

And let's see if you can tie together, what I'm driving at.

Okay. There is a method to the madness on the things I'm going to show you.

These things I just saw last night.

This isn't like, yeah. Well, I saw this a month ago.

I've been saying.

These are things, that I spent 20 minutes, just scrolling, going, wow.

That one. That one.

Okay.

Let's so on let's start with cut 12, please.

GLENN: All the New Yorkers in New York City, please, pay attention to what I'm about to say.

I know this morning got a list from my controller, to tell us the tax annual assessments and values. This happens every January to February. I got mine. Just on a few of our properties, just a few of them, every single one of them are going up. Some of them are going up ten to 15 percent. All the way up to 60, 75 percent. You have no clue what this means to this industry.

Now have clue, what this means to every average New Yorker.

Everybody in New York City, is affected.

Because I have stores here, supermarkets. $12,000. $14,000. I have -- I have small three-family buildings, renting them. Going up $9,000. Increase on top of the 30 thousands that I'm paying.
.
GLENN: That's crazy. That's crazy. Okay.

So everybody is paying a lot more. That's weird.

Cut -- cut 13. This is one about the hotels in New York.

VOICE: Here is the hotel.

VOICE: This is one of the hotels as transformed into the shelter.

VOICE: We will walk in there. And see what kind of operation they're running inside.

VOICE: Really nice hotel.

VOICE: How is it going?

VOICE: Oh, yeah. We're just checking in on the hotel. There's a ton of people in here.

GLENN: Because it's a shelter.

VOICE: Oh.

VOICE: Migrants going in?

VOICE: Yeah. It's no longer --

VOICE: How many floors is this?

VOICE: Thirty floors.

GLENN: Thirty.

Is it full? Yeah.

VOICE: You guys aren't allowed to talk about it? Why do you think it's a big secret, Duke?

GLENN: I don't know. We just follow orders.

VOICE: They signed the contract with an outside source, saying they will pay them rent, in order for them to house the migrants. And the hotels love it because it is guaranteed money every single night. And that array of $200 per night at the hotel.

And with 1,331 rooms, that is $260,000 a day. $1.8 million a week. And $7.2 million a month.

GLENN: Okay. $7.2 million a month.

For one hotel.

One.

Hotel.

Who is -- who is writing that check again?

Isn't that kind of important?

Who is writing that check?

One month, 7.2 million dollars.

Oh, that makes me understand the -- the other guy, who is like, look at our assessment on our buildings.

Bada bing.

Up 75 percent tax.

Bada bing.

Okay. All right.

So can we just play the horse running town, just because I need -- oh, there he is.

Running down.
(music)

Now let me show you, can we take cut six, please.

Cut six.

VOICE: Some of those suburban areas.

Are having double-digit car thefts with be in a week.

Sometimes in a day. People are stealing tires at a record rate. There's no consequences, accountability, repercussions.

GLENN: Hmm. Hmm. And there's problems CNN said with homelessness. Cut seven please.

VOICE: The number of people experiencing homelessness in a single night. Went up 12 percent in a single night in 2023.

In part, because COVID programs preventing evictions and housing losses came to an end.

A quarter of those people were unhoused for the first time in their lives.

VOICE: How many people fell into homelessness during COVID.

VOICE: Before COVID, there were probably about 20 or 30,000 people. Now it's 46,000.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Here is -- here, I think this is Curtis. Just standing on third avenue. Which when I lived in New York.

You can't -- you can't stand in the middle of the street.

Here he is on third Avenue.

VOICE: This is something you'll never see in the middle of the day. Third Avenue in New York City.

This is the future. When everybody leaves and heads to Florida.

They're on the way to Texas. Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina.

Look. So what do we have here?

Because they've all fled the city. And it will only be a city of criminals. Emotionally disturbed migrants. I am Nostradamus. I see what's coming in 2024. Vast sea of emptiness.

GLENN: Well, that's good. That's good.

So let's see, we have too many migrants coming in.

More migrants, the collection of migrants that have been added to our country in the last three and a half years. Equal the population.

Of 38 states in America.

Equal or above the population of 38 -- we only have 50 states. I just want you to know that.

We only have 50.

38 of them are now smaller, than the people we have let in.

That's into -- I mean, I mean -- that's interesting.

And then we have some really, really.

I mean, we have some real problems. And I'm glad that we're dealing. What are we focused on.

Go ahead.

VOICE: The whom who runs the bullying account, lives of TikTok. Was given a spot on the Oklahoma library board. The statewide board.

She is not from --

GLENN: Now, could I just stop for a second.

This is a man in a dress.

Who clearly has --

STU: You don't like him.

GLENN: I don't. I don't. I think it's a little. And you might want to shave just a little bit. And the low cut tress there is nice. But if we know maybe you would shave just -- anyway, this guy is having a serious conversation, about what's acceptable in the library. And people are just watching it and going, well, he's making a good point.

He's not -- how!

Play the damn horse, running down the --

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: How about this one?

Cut 17.
(music)
Just

VOICE: I've seen this question. My problem is, I'm too hot. I'm too successful in my career. I make too much money. I have too many amazing friends and family. Too many cute clothes. Do you know how hard it is, to choose an outfit each day?

People sliding into my DMs every day.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. It's a man with boobs. It's a woman with a beard. I don't -- I have -- I don't know.

STU: They never had to deal with problems like that. They're too hot. People slipping into your DMs. This person has to deal with that every day.

GLENN: Do you know how hard it is to pick out a set of clothes every day?

No. I have no idea. I wear the same clothes. I have been wearing them since the third grade.

What the hell is wrong with you?

I swear to you, I mean, this story makes more sense than any other story I've seen today.

Oh, wow. Look, a horse running down a highway in Philadelphia.

When that becomes, eh.

STU: That's the most sensible story we've talked about in this segment. Sometimes horses run county the highway.

GLENN: Now, I would just like to point out. And maybe I've been in a coma. So I don't remember it. Sometimes you won't remember a coma. And you're all being nice, and you're like, don't say anything to him. He's forgotten he's been this a coma for 400 years. And we were in -- I don't know. Some freezer.

I don't know how this happened. But maybe I've been in a coma. But from where I'm sitting, none of this is normal.

May we just all take a moment and go, none of this is normal!

This is not the way a civilization behaves.

Am I alone on this?

I don't --

STU: Apparently so.

GLENN: Apparently, I --

STU: Apparently so. By the way, the horse is okay.

GLENN: The horse is --

STU: Yeah. The horse is okay.

GLENN: That would be the thing. Out of this monologue. Somebody -- well, what happened to the horse?

STU: I was --

GLENN: It's those damn cars, and those SUVs. I don't know what they're doing there. They're killing the planet. Have you heard about the big umbrella that we want to put in space?

Don't put big umbrellas in space. Are you out of your minds?

Oh, man. I just -- if I was in a coma, I want the doctors to know, put me back into the coma, please.
