Riots & White House defiance: What may come AFTER Roe ruling

Many members of the far-left already are calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the White House has been discussing plans to defy the ruling too. In fact, one idea floated by Biden Administration officials, according to the New York Times, includes providing abortions on military bases. So, will America experience another summer of riots? Are YOUR taxpayer dollars at risk? And what does this mean for deep-blue states? Josh Hammer, legal expert and opinion editor for Newsweek, joins Glenn to discuss what may come next...

GLENN: Josh Hammer, he's the opinion editor of Newsweek. He's the host of the Josh Hammer show. He is really quite brilliant. One of the leading minds in the conservative movement, I think. Josh Hammer joins us now.

To tell us, what did you find in this decision?

JOSH: Glenn, great to be back with you, on such a momentous, and really such an emotional day, honestly. So, you know, look, as you said, this dropped recently. Funny enough, I was in the middle of getting a guest lecture from an organization on the advisory board as to when it drops. So I barely had any time to kind of skim through, let alone guess the concerning dissenting opinions. But it looks like this looks very similar, to the draft opinion that was leaked, by the Politico story, a month and a half ago, in early May. And I think those of us who were praying that the five justices from this leaked draft opinion, would have the fortitude to stiffen their spines against this unprecedented assault. Now knows that our prayers were answered, Glenn. That's really my takeaway right now.

This looks a lot like the leaked opinion. Justice Thomas and Justice Kavanaugh have some reconcurring opinions.

But unbelievable. And really just holding aside the constitutional law stuff for a second hear. Just speaking as pro-lifers, on a day like today, I think we really just need to pause. And I tweeted this out earlier. We need to just be grateful for our half century of pro-life activist forbearers. You know, this -- Glenn, this issue could have gone away after 1973. That was a long time ago. 1973. I mean, this issue could have just gone away. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the pro-life moral activist. Political activist. And, of course, yes. Legal activist. Who fought day in and day out, that makes sure this great injustice stayed front and center of our national, political conscience. And in many days, the culmination of a half century of fighting for truth and justice. But in many ways, it's also a new beginning for the pro-life fight as well, interestingly.

STU: How do you mean a new beginning for the fight? I just it's going to turn, I think we're going to see abortion turn even darker in those states that allow it. Is that -- is that what you're meaning by this?

JOSH: Well, look, for a half century now, Roe vs. Wade, and its project any, specifically, the Planned Parenthood versus Casey case of 1992.

They took away from the states obviously. They arrogated authority away from the states, the ability to attempt to nationally codify one view of the morality of abortion.

It happened to be a profoundly immoral view. So these -- the fight now shifts to the states. And the pro-life activists. And all the 50 states. Especially, obviously in red states. Purple states. I mean, admittedly some blue states like New York and California, probably won't be able to touch them there.

But we have to make sure that our side is well positioned in the state Capitols for every red, purplish, probably even light blue state, to make sure we fight for successful, cogent, and morally consistent pro-life legislation. The state of Oklahoma, actually, just north of Texas. Right where you are now, Glenn. They have been leading on this actually. Governor Kevin Stitt signed into law, a fantastic pro-life bill there in Oklahoma. A few weeks ago. Maybe a month ago or so at this point, that basically just bans abortion straightforward from conception. And there are some -- you know, obviously, likable the mother. So forth. But we really need to start thinking about trying to craft legislation now, at the state level. But to your point, I do fear that the blue states will only double down in their radicalism. Unfortunately within that will only lead to an ever greater divide, in our country, that we have today. But obviously, at the end of the day. We're going to save at the end of the day, millions and millions of unborn children. We are going to save human beings who can grow up to cure cancer, who can win Nobel prices.

I mean, this is just a tremendous win for the human species. I don't know how to say it other than that.

GLENN: I will tell you, I saw the stat, that I think it was last year or the year before. 20 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion. 20 percent.

JOSH: Wow.

GLENN: That is -- that is a shocking number. And we do have our -- our work cut out for us. Because I -- I think that these states are going to double down. But I think, you know -- God doesn't waste anything. You know, there is no waste with God. Even the -- even the worst things that could possibly happen, turn out to be something good. You know what I mean? You're like, holy cow, how did that just happen.

And I think that evil is going to fully come unmasked. I'm telling you, Josh. I don't know how you feel about this. I think this could be the day of America's Kristallnacht. I can see these pro-life centers being burned to the ground today. They're calling for a night of rage around the country. I think evil is going to show itself. And that will scare the American people, hopefully.

JOSH: You know, I've been thinking about this a lot this week, actually. Because I've been bracing for a new kind of George Floyd summer of love, happening this summer. Coming to a city or suburb near you. Unfortunately, myself. Look, I live in Florida. I know, Glenn, you live in Texas. It is in moments like this, where I do think that where you live matters. And who your mayor is. Who your governor is, matters.

Because law and order and rioting and anarchy is not really a federal issue. It is to a limited extent. June 2020, Tom Cotton wrote this op-ed that was pretty controversial at the time.

I happen to agree with it. Where he said, quote, unquote, send in the troops. And there is some federal legislation from the reconstruction era that would justify that.

But most kind of quelling and quashing of anarchy does happen. Constitutionally speaking, at the state and local level. So at a moment like this, where I fear that you're probably not wrong. I take some solace. That Governor DeSantis is my governor. I think Texans should take some solace, that they are represented by -- by a Republican governor. The legislature there as well. So I -- I fear that you are right. I pray obviously, that no one -- it's hard.

I fear that it's something -- that something bad is happening. At the end of the day, of course. It does not mean that justices cannot do what they are supposed to do. So thank God they did that.

GLENN: So, Josh, have you looked into what the White House has been saying? The White House yesterday. In fact, do we have a clip of -- of this?

What the White House said yesterday, about the guns. And then they were turned to the -- the Scott us ruling, for Roe vs. Wade. Do we have that, please?

JOSH: Will the president accept this decision, even if he disagrees with it?

VOICE: I think it's going to come from the Supreme Court. So it's a decision we certainly are going to respond to. I'll leave it at that. Just like any other Supreme Court decision. Just like the one they did today on guns.

GLENN: So the White House won't say that they're going to accept it.

Which I don't think they will. They're talking now about taking doctors and moving them into places like Oklahoma or Texas, where abortions will be outlawed. And putting doctors on our military bases to perform abortions.

I mean, where does this go, when you have a government, that is in defiance of -- of one branch of the government?

JOSH: So there's a lot to unpack here. So we should start from first principles. The idea of judicial supremacy, and this is a peculiar thing, to say on a day like today, where such a pro-life victory has happened in Italy. But if we're going to be consistent here, the idea of judicial supremacy. The idea that the justices, have the sole and exclusive ability to interpret the Constitution for themselves. And no other Constitutional actor, in article one or article two, let alone the state. Has the ability to tentatively interpret it. That is erroneous. In fact, actually it was really Abraham Lincoln actually, who in the Dred Scott case, famously opposed judicial supremacy and flouted the Dred Scott ruling, at least as it pertains to everybody other than Dred Scott himself. I have actually argued, a former legal scholarship, in a law review article actually, that the Laconian view of how each branch of government should interpret the Constitution for itself, is correct.

Having said that. Having said that, there is a thing called prudence. And there is a thing called comedy. And in a moment like today, when it really does look like -- and I agree with you, that we are now bracing for riots through the streets. When the political rhetoric is at DEFCON one. When people are trying to assassinate Supreme Court justices. I think it would be -- at its bare minimum, a profoundly imprudent act. For the Biden administration, to try to undermine this ruling.

Now, what they might do, is they might try to kind of issue some kind of executive orders, or issue some regulations, that might try to kind of undermine it, at the edges here. But at the end of the day, the idea that this returns to the state. There's not really a whole lot they can do about that. Basically, at this point, throughout the country. Kentucky within West Virginia. Kansas. Whatever. If they want to go ahead and ban abortion, what can the Biden administration literally do about that? I mean, short of sending in the National Guard, to protect Planned Parenthood, if the state legislature of Kentucky goes ahead and bans it. There's not a whole lot they can do. And it's very difficult to envision a world, in which the Biden administration literally sends in troops to red states, to protect Planned Parenthood, if that state legislature goes ahead and bans it. So for practically speaking. This is a lot of tough talk and rhetoric. Obviously the campaign here in 2022. There's not really a whole lot that practically speaking, they can do to actually prevent red and purple states from enacting pro-life legislation.

GLENN: I'm glad to -- I'm glad to hear that. I know that they have been working on things. I mean, he has said, you know, there's executive orders, that I can employ. There are things that I can do. He's talked about a national public health emergency. Which I think is just -- is crazy. But I would hope, that the president would come out and say, we strongly disagree with this. And you're right. The court is not the end all. But the court did not end abortion. It just said, the people should decide. I think that's the best kind of court ruling, on any of it. The people should decide what this is. And send it back to the states. Josh, I thank you very much. Appreciate your time. Was there -- there was another ruling, that came out today. Was it important?

JOSH: Oh, no. In comparison to this. A total nothing burger. A 5-4 decision on Medicare reimbursement related. So nothing, honestly.

GLENN: Great. Thank you very much. Appreciate it, Josh. Josh Hammer, opinion editor for Newsweek. And the host of the Josh Hammer show.

Glenn reacts to FBI raid of Trump home: A ‘MASSIVE MOVE'

If you are NOT for the destruction of America, Glenn says, then you better pay attention to our federal government’s HUGE accumulation of power. The FBI raid on Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago late Monday was a ‘MASSIVE MOVE,’ with implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what IS the far-left’s endgame? What are they hoping to accomplish, and will they stop at NOTHING to destroy President Trump? In this clip, Glenn reacts to the FBI raid and gives his thoughts on those questions plus more…

GLENN: Does anybody have any credibility anymore? If you actually -- if you were actually celebrating, what is happening with Donald Trump, you have no idea how much this changes things. If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move. And who has credibility on it? Nobody is going to believe Donald Trump. But nobody the left. So you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? You think we're going to believe the New York Times? The people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And I'm not talking about the stupid death list. I'm talking about a server, and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room. It's completely sealed off. Going in, getting documents. Cutting off top secret. And then emailing them to her, on her private server. And nothing?

And now you're going to try to convince me. This has nothing to do with January 6th. Okay. What does TV to do with? Well, it's a national archives thing. He has papers that should be in the History Department. Excuse me. What?

He has top secret papers. We have pictures. Coincidentally, they came out yesterday, right around the time of the raid, you know, of him flushing stuff down the toilet. We don't know what it was. But somebody who was nameless, took pictures of his toilets when he was traveling. And, you know, he was smart enough to rip him off, so we don't know what they said. But do -- (cut out).

We had somebody with him with a camera on their phone. And they went in right after him, hey, light a match Mr. President, click. Good thing for us, huh? That's ridiculous!

The bank servers, he's pinging a bank. Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy. Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy. Does he look like a Russian spy? Untrue. Collusion with Russia. Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call. Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier. None of that was true. Here's why they can't have him as president of the United States, okay?

They can't have him as president of the United States, because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional great reset. And all of the West is involved in it. And New York Times, don't call me a conspiracy theory, because you just wrote a story about me and people like me trying to stop ESG, which you said didn't exist. So you have no credibility.

This is not just about their hatred for Donald Trump. This is about the elites. Now, I've got to tell you, I don't -- I don't like the Secret Service. And I've said this since Bush was in office. I think there's a problem in the Secret Service. I think it's poorly run. I'm a guy who has paid about a million dollars for my family's security every year for the last 15 years. Oh, Glenn Beck must be rolling in the dough. No, not after the security costs. I would rather have my family safe, than any service in the Secret Service because they rely on money. That's it. They'll solve it with money. We'll just get more guys.

Donald Trump should hire his own security. Donald Trump should hire his own security. Because I'm sorry, whether it's through stupidity, or it's part of the government. I don't know. If you're on the Secret Service detail of Donald Trump, God bless you. I watched you guys at CPAC. I watched you more than I watched anything else. I saw your eyes. I watched you. And there are those on his team, that whether you like him or not, are doing your job. And I thank you for that. But if they can't get this guy by hook or by crook, to go in, and be a part of the new jail system. For political opponents, they will kill him.

They cannot have him be president. Because he is America first. Not only that, you do this to this guy, oh, gee. You've gone after my family, you've gone after me. You lied about me. I have the evidence. All I have to do is bring it out. Because it's all on videotape on some dumb son's phone. Do you really think a new Justice Department, that's not even political, but just clear, that hold nothing back, Hillary Clinton and her Clinton Initiative, do you think the Clinton Initiative, that there's no impropriety going on there? Do you really think that Adam Schiff, who's lied -- there's nothing there? Nothing for Hunter? Nothing for Joe Biden, you know, in China. Nothing. No, there's nothing there. BlackRock, the collusion with the banks. Everything that they're doing now, right now, you don't think that a Justice Department, that is hell-bent on cleaning and settling scores could settle scores pretty damn quickly? I hope we don't get there. Because this has to be about reasoned justice. But look at what they've just caused. What is their endgame? What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr? By throwing him into jail or killing him? You make him a martyr. So you make him stronger. That doesn't make sense. Why would you want that? Well, we just want him out of the -- you think Ron DeSantis isn't going to be the immediate front runner, and that Ron DeSantis would be easier to beat in your book? Are you that stupid? Wait. You take out Donald Trump, and then the heir apparent, Ron DeSantis runs, and for some reason, you think that all the Trump supporters wouldn't go, yeah. Hmm. What is your endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is stop him at any cost. And lunatics will take to the streets, and then we'll have our evidence that they're more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country. I would -- I would love -- I don't expect to hear from any. But I would love to hear from a Democrat today. Alan Dershowitz has the balls to come on. Wait 'til you hear what he has to say. Is there a single Democrat within the sound of my voice, single one, that doesn't -- that sees this?

Where are the FBI agents? Where are the freaking FBI agents, who don't see what's coming? Stu, look up the things. Eighty-seven thousand IRS agents, coupled with what they already have. That's about 170. That's almost the size of our National Guard. You feel comfortable with that, Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility -- not this guy, because he's so perfect. He's made your life so good. I mean, everything he's done is sunshine and lollipops. Do you really think that there's no possibility, that someone, even Donald Trump might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS? Is there anybody -- is there a single Democrat, call me, I would love to hear from you. 888-727-BECK. Is there one -- because, look, I voted for the guy, but this is too far. This is too much? Anybody, who says, if you would have done that to Hillary Clinton, I would have gone ape? Fascist. I see what you guys have been worried about -- 888-727-BECK

GLENN: I have Ron DeSantis on this week on Thursday, for the podcast.

STU: Hmm. That should be interesting. And I think he's the only out there, running in the right direction at the right speed. I think -- I think Florida is one of the only ones that may survive.

I mean, everybody else.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Even Texas, which is pretty good, is not nearly moving fast enough.

PAT: It doesn't feel like we're on the same trajectory as Florida right now. It seems like they're protecting their freedoms a lot more passionately than -- than we are in Texas.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: I mean, there's no doubt that Governor Abbott has made some missteps over the last couple of years.

GLENN: He doesn't suck though.

PAT: He doesn't suck. But people are pissed at him.

GLENN: Because they expect Ron DeSantis.

PAT: Yes.

STU: Nothing better for Governor Abbott, than to be potentially running against potential Governor O'Rourke though.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. I know. Seriously, I think Abbott would be a great governor, really in any other state.

STU: Right.

GLENN: But Texas is like, wait a minute. What. Wait.

STU: We don't like to be outdone.

GLENN: We don't like to be outdone. And if he were in any other state, we would count him as one of the best governors in the country. And he is. But if you live in Texas, it doesn't feel that way. And Texans, you better wake up. Because you really do want to go out and vote, otherwise, you get Beto.

PAT: Yeah. Uh-huh.

STU: It's interesting with DeSantis in particular. From a political standpoint, he's -- he's always in the middle of the right issues.

GLENN: With the right thing, taking the right stand.

STU: Right. And, usually, like at the right level too. He's not just saying -- you might -- it might be satisfying to conservative talk radio listeners, if you come out and you attack all these listeners. And you do all these things that are really, really hard-core. But he has a way of balancing, talking to his base. By doing things that are legal. That are sensible.

GLENN: That are going through the House and the Senate.

STU: That are going through the House and they Senate.

GLENN: He's passing laws. He's not just doing it executive fiat.

STU: It's not just big symbolic gestures. It's been a pretty interesting approach. I remember when he kind of emerged as one of the top candidates, as potential presidential nominee in in 2024. It was early. It was like early -- you know, early pandemic. He was one of the first governors to sort of open things up. And at least get a lot of attention for it. Even though, Kristi Noem pointed out, never closed down. But he's been able to maintain that. And continue building on it. Where a bunch of other governors from that era, were sort of the darlings of conservatives for a while and faded. He's been able to stay right there.

GLENN: Right. Because he continues. That's what I mean. He's on the right track, at the right speed. He's taking all of it on. It's like, I really appreciate the states that are taking on ESG. But when of them are taking on just the E. Well, that leaves the -- the people of your state at risk. It's the S and the G, as well. That are problems.

And DeSantis is doing these things. At the top of the hour, I'm going to tell you, what he did. Vanity Fair just came out with a hysterical article, about how authoritarian Rick DeSantis is.

STU: Can you imagine how bad Ron must be? If Rick is bad, imagine how Ron will be? You'll never get that name right.

Okay. It's not like you're President Ronald Trump. You have just DeSantis.

GLENN: I know. Just DeSantis. Just DeSantis. So, anyway, this is hysterical. He just put in a civics requirements. And wait until you hear the way Vanity Fair is talking about it.

I mean, 1619 Project will come to mind, several times. But it's crazy, because they are defending incorrect history. Their defense is, Thomas Jefferson was raping their slaves. Oh, if I hear that one more time.

PAT: Oh, jeez.

GLENN: That's not true. It was not true.

In fact, dig up that information we had on Thomas Jefferson a couple of weeks ago. Just so we can -- just so we can remind people at the top of the hour. But, you know, I -- I felt something, oh, probably. Probably about eight months ago. I felt the seasons change. And that was spiritual advice to me. Almost 15 years ago. And somebody said to me. Glenn, I said -- when am I going to know? And they said, watch the trees. When the seasons change, you will know.

And I -- I didn't know if I would know that. And I had a real feeling about eight months ago, seasons are changing. And we're in it deeper now. And getting closer to real problems.

This summer within the last eight or nine weeks, I felt them change again. And I think, I could be wrong. But I think that is this climate bill. I think this is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out.

The only other thing that I think they could do to make things -- to really polish us off. Is emergency orders. And if he goes for emergency orders, and declares a national emergency with the weather, we're going to be -- we're going to be cooked. But I was at CPAC. And I saw some of the candidates, that are coming up. And if we can get these candidates in, they're serious. They're serious candidates. I don't know about the ones around you. But the nation has a few people that are willing to go to Washington. Lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. And save the republic. And save the Constitution. What are you saving it from? People who are trying to destroy the Constitution. Read it.

How the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ targets FARMERS…and YOU.

The Senate passed a 740 BILLION DOLLAR package over the weekend, with Vice President Kamala Harris giving Democrats the last vote they needed. The bill is called the ‘Inflation Reduction Act of 2022,’ but Glenn explains why it likely will do the EXACT opposite. And not only could it hurt your wallet, but it may hurt your food, too. Glenn details parts of the bill that target American farmers and the farming industry, all in the name of climate change. The ramifications — many of which are already happening in Europe — could be HUGE: ‘This is really, very dangerous.’

GLENN: If we don't collapse the size of this government soon, it will become an oppressor. Yesterday -- or, over the weekend, the Senate passed the 740 billion-dollar climate or health care reconciliation package. Now, just remember, $700 billion was the size of the -- DARPA, Obama.

STU: Yeah. First Obama stimulus package.

GLENN: Stimulus. And we all had a cow, that it was 700 billion dollars. We thought that was outrageous. This is 740 billion, just on climate and, quote, health care.

But is it? Let me give you some -- let me give you some information on this. It passed, the bill includes $370 billion in green energy. Subsidies. Now, do you remember how well the green energy subsidies happened last time, when Obama was in? Aren't we just making money, hand over fist, with all of those great investments, that we had under Obama?

STU: I'm a billionaire, because of my investment in Solyndra. It's worked out so well.

GLENN: Is that because of inflation? Because I think that went out of business. Now, here's the key to this bill: $80 billion -- now, remember, 370. This is the biggest thing ever. This is -- this has got to be done. Because we're all going to do to die in a fiery flood. 370 billion, and 80 billion is for the IRS. Now, I want you to listen to what they say, and you'll read it over and over again. It's the Internal Revenue Service, for enforcement. Now, enforcement. Do we have that many greedy billionaires that just aren't paying their taxes. I would like to know.

Do we have that many billionaires that don't have enough money for really good attorneys, to read the law. That you're going to need 80,000 new IRS agents. That doesn't seem to compute at all, does it?

Now, by the way, they're saying that it's going to reduce inflation. It's not going to reduce inflation. If it does, and this is the honest-to-God truth, it may reduce inflation. Why?

Because it's going to hurt you so badly, that you won't be able to buy things. Remember, too much money chasing too far goods. So if you can't make the goods, you've got to reduce the money chasing it. That means, they've got to slow you down, at the store. And that is exactly what this bill will do. But because the government is going to be spending so much more money, I don't think it's going to reduce inflation at all. In fact, I think it's going to make inflation worse. But your -- your life is going to become much more tough. Now, I want to give you some more perspective on this. First of all, the American people. Just see how out of touch the American people -- the -- Washington is. Compared to the American people.

Just 12 percent of the new economist you.gov poll. Twelve percent of people think this will actually reduce inflation. The other time, three times as many, 6 percent. Believe it will actually increase inflation. Twenty-three percent believe they don't think the bill will move inflation either way.

And only 29 percent say, they are unsure. Now, this bill is climate and inflation reduction. You don't believe that it's actually going to reduce inflation. They don't ask if you think if it would actually help the green movement. And protect the earth. But they did ask this: Do you -- do you believe it will lower inflation? Average respondent? 51 percent, no. But do you support the bill?

31 percent said, they strongly or somewhat oppose the bill. The rest agreed with it. So who is confused here? You don't believe in it, but you support it.

Now, I'm not talking about you personally. But I'm talking about the American people. How is that possible?

That is because we still believe, that our government, somehow or another, there's still enough people believe that our government or your personal guy in Congress or in the Senate is doing the right thing.

I don't know how this is working. It -- well, I do. They didn't ask another question, in that poll. Do you actually know what's in it?

I can guarantee you, most people don't know what's in it. But let me give you a couple of things. And let's start with the big one.

The inflation reduction act, will give the IRS $80 billion, in additional funding. So you know, that's a 600 percent increase of their budget. 600 percent.

They will hire as many as 87,000 additional employees for enforcement. The increase would more than double the size of the IRS work. Which currently has 78,661 full-time staffers. So they have 78,000, they're adding an additional 87,000. To give you some perspective, the Pentagon. You know how many people work at the Pentagon? You know a huge building that goes on and on and on. Pentagon. World's largest military. The Pentagon houses 27,000 employees.

27,000!

We're talking over 160,000 IRS agents. The State Department employs 77,243. The FBI has 35,000 people. The customs and Border Patrol employs 19,536 Border Patrol agents. This will make the IRS bigger than all of those agencies, combined.

Now are you for this act? It's a little too late. But are you now for this act?

This is going to be staggering. And here's where it really will impact you. In the bill, in fact, I want to -- page -- page 529, of the Inflation Reduction Act. It will pay -- pay farmers to not farm. They want -- they want to restore the soil. So the measures will include plowing your soil less. Implementing climate-friendly crop rotation techniques. And planting cover crops, that do not yield any food.

There's 20 billion dollars available, September 30th now. To diminish the climate impact from farms. They are going to start paying farmers, not to farm. And then you'll be fine. They're also going to now, hmm. I would like to say encourage you. But what they're going to do to the farmers is tell them, exactly how they can farm. They're going to tell them now, just like they are over in Europe, where the farmers are going out of business and on the streets, protesting. They are now going to tell them, that they have to adopt more climate friendly provisions. They are going to regulate what you can feed your cow. They're going to -- they're going to also tell you what you can grow. How you grow it. What you can use as fertilizer. And the fertilizer that we're all used to. You know, the one that grows one-third more than the old fertilizer. You're not going to be able to use that. Now, we're entering a global food crisis.

Farmers all around the world are going in on this nonsense. It's not working. All around the world. And we've just implemented it, and we're hiring 87,000 new IRS agents, to make sure you comply.

Well, this doesn't have anything to do with the taxes. Oh, yeah. It does. Because you will be getting subsidies. Oh, yes. It does. Because you'll have an ESG score, if you're a farmer.

This is going to devastate our farms. Have you ever noticed, that whenever communists take over, the first thing they do, is kill usually everybody who disagrees with them.

They take out anybody who is ever successful at something. Look at the difference between GM and Elon Musk. Look at the difference between what he's building, and what all these other guys had been building. But all these other guys had been building. The guy is building a spaceship to Mars. The guy has transformed the automobile. And yet, he's on the outs. They're coming after him. I can guarantee you, some of those 87,000 IRS agents are just going to work on Elon Musk and his companies. So they first come after anybody who is a capitalist. Anybody who disagrees with them. Anyone who can do anything. They get rid of them, if they can't co-opt them. Then they go after the farmers. And then when there's a problem with the farmers, they then kill the farmers. Or take their land away. And say, you're not doing it right. Well, because farmers have farmed for generations. They know the things that they have to do. It's not like farmers don't know to rest their land. Or to change their crops. Of course, they know that.

They're farmers. Now we have eggheads coming in. And it happens every time communists take control. That's why people end up eating the zoo animals, and then their dogs.

This is really very dangerous. Oh, by the way, in Europe, they're already to the next phase. The first phase was saying, the climate has to be controlled. And we have to control it through the farmers. The farmers then start to collapse. The farmers then start to take to the streets. And say, this is insanity. Well, the next phase is because no one knows where their food comes from. Or how to grow it. The next phase is already happening. The anti-farm sentiment is growing now in Europe. You watch. The farmers are going to get a really bad name. And the farmers are going to be blamed for the food shortages. You watch. I guarantee it. It's already happening in Europe. So now people are taking to the streets, and saying, it's these farmers that are at fault. This story, repeats itself, over and over again, until human beings learn the lesson.

The question is, America: Will we learn the lesson this time?

It's amazing, because on some of these things, we're behind. We have the results from Europe. And we're still doing it.
