A new memo (released through FOIA requests) on the Ukraine scandal shows that Hunter Biden and his Burisma associates (like partner Devon Archer) had connections inside the State Department when Obama was in the White House, in 2016. In fact, they were trying to set up a meeting with those State Department connections just thirty days before Vice President Joe Biden orchestrated the firing of Ukraine's General Prosecutor, Shokin, who was in the middle of investigating the gas firm. They were communicating with Catherine Novelli, who was the most senior official within the State Department overlooking international energy issues. And though it's not clear whether the meeting actually took place, it might not even matter. Devon Archer DID meet with John Kerry just a few weeks later, anyways.
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.
