SELF-SABOTAGE: How Putin Exploits Biden's INSANE Energy Policies

There’s several logical steps the Biden administration SHOULD be taking to end Putin’s current power grab in Russia. Unfortunately though, when President Biden took office 14 months ago, he ended what President Trump had worked so hard to gain: America’s energy independence. Now, thanks to Biden’s self-sabotaging decisions, Putin has taken advantage of the West’s oil weaknesses as he tramples over Ukraine. So, is it possible to turn America’s oil, gas, and fossil fuel industries back around? Daniel Turner, Founder & Executive Director of Power The Future, joins Glenn to discuss…

GLENN: All righty then. But we want to bring in Daniel Turner. He's the Founder and executive director of Power the Future. And we will talk about the things that maybe we should be doing right now.

Daniel, welcome to the program.

DANIEL: Oh, it's great to be on with you, Glenn. Thanks for having me.

GLENN: You're welcome.

I don't know if you saw Marc Andreessen's tweet yesterday. But he said, we should be building 1,000 nuclear plants all the way around the world. Starting today.

We're not going to do it.

But there's a lot of logical things we should be doing today.

One of them is get off our dependence of Russian oil.

DANIEL: Yeah. Absolutely. A lot of the problems we're experiencing right now, have begun 14 months ago, with the Biden administration.

And I'm not pinning the Ukraine invasion on him. But I am saying, we have been tinkering. This administration has been really punishing, the -- the -- America's energy industry. Specifically, the fossil fuel industry.

For months and months. And when oil hits $70 a barrel. And $80 a barrel. The White House is silent. Well, now it's at 100.

And Joe Biden is saying, he wants to do something. So it's a little too late.

Energy is one of those issues, that people don't want to pay attention to. Until it starts to hit the purse.

Right?

Yeah. Exactly. But we need serious energy policy, and not Greta Thunberg, not John Kerry. Right?

We need serious energy policy, because it is national security as well.

GLENN: I just. I keep hearing him say. We're going to tap into the strategic oil reserve.

Hang on just a second. We -- on one hand, people are talking about World War III.

And the biggest conflict possibly, since World War II.
I'll was kind of important, that's why we have the strategic oil reserve.

And so we're -- he's telling the west, we should release more from our strategic oil reserve, while we're facing this.

No. Open a freaking pipeline.

DANIEL: Yeah. Oil is so important to the world economy. That even this administration has not sanctioned Russian oil. Germany Italy today, bought more natural gas, than they did yesterday from Russia.

In fact, Putin has increased the amount of natural gas exports because he knows, he has Europe on -- on the hook.

And he's using that to his leverage.

And so look, we have to stop being Plato. There is this ideal world. We all need to live up to it.
And we all need to be better. But the reality is, our economy, our military. The world runs on fossil fuels right now.

And whether or not we want to change that as one conversation, but the reality is, punishing fossil fuels now, in the hopes of a better tomorrow.

Has made us weak now. And Vladimir Putin has taken advantage of that weakness.

GLENN: This is -- this is exactly what The Great Reset is about.

The ESG scores. Energy is the first thing.

DANIEL: Absolutely.

GLENN: And we are -- we are committing national suicide. And it's not just national. The entire West is committing suicide.

And I don't understand -- and is that -- is that -- is that hyperbole?

DANIEL: No. Not whatsoever. And look, when this administration began, and Joe Biden said, which I believe is a flat-out falsehood.

When he said the generals tell him, climate change is our biggest national security threat, I'm sorry. If anyone really said that to you in the military, that person should be fired today.

And any politician, Republican or Democrat. This is not a partisan issue. Many Republicans went to the Glasgow climate summit. To learn how to tackle climate change.

We can have a conversation about the environment. But if you generally believe in your heart of hearts, looking at the global stage, that climate change is the biggest threat, then you do not deserve elected office. You are a danger.

Because Russia is a threat. China is a threat. Iran is a threat. North Korea.

And these world regimes, unfortunately, as the prices of oil have gone through the roof. Have become richer. And what does Iran do when they have more money?

They launch attacks on Israel. And they launch attacks on the UAE. And they fund their nuclear bombs program.

And what does Russia do, when they have more money? They build their army, right?

So this fight against reality, that you can have a conversation about the environment, but there are real threats. And we need to put on our big boy pants, and face the real world we live in.

GLENN: Even if you -- if you believed that climate change was the existential threat. And the largest threat against all of humanity.

If you really, truly believed that, and you make the moves, to stop American oil, and everything else.

Does that explain why we are not sanctioning the Russian oil? We're increasing our imports of Russian oil.

And we seem to be making it easy for Iran, to flood the market, with their oil.

I don't understand this.

Why wouldn't you go to America, and just say, hey, it's temporary. But we're going to -- we need you right now, to relieve the pressure?

I don't understand it.

DANIEL: Yeah. You know, for the first time in nearly 40 years, America has been purchasing Iranian oil. Very quietly.

The administration clearly did not put out a press release. But you say, why is America buying any oil from -- from Russia? From Iran.

GLENN: Wait. Wait. Wait.

When did that happen?

I've not heard that.

DANIEL: Started in April of this year. And we've -- and we've purchased about a million barrels of oil, from Iran.

Now, there's going to be an argument. And they're going to say, I'm playing fast and loose with the nuance. Because we purchased a lot of oil with from the world. And we refine it, particularly in the gulf.

All right. We have the world's largest refining capabilities. Also something China is trying to compete with us on, but that's another conversation.

We are the world's largest refiner. So this crude that comes out of the ground. Has to get refined.

So we buy Russian. We buy Venezuelan. But we don't need to buy any oil. If we produce enough ourself. And we're not.

We're producing 2 million barrels fewer than we did, a few months ago, before Biden became president. The reason why we're producing so much fewer oil. Is because this administration has made it impossible to produce.

You mentioned the ESG movement. Every agency is looking at climate change. When it comes to permitting. Lands access. Permits in the Gulf of Mexico, on federal land.

Fracking moratoriums. Pipeline construction. So all these cumulative actions have made production of oil domestically hard. Of course, we have to get it from somewhere else. So why not Russia? Why not Iran? Why not Venezuela? Why not put a bullet to our head, because that's what we're doing by enriching our enemies?

GLENN: Let me ask you. When Obama said that he was going to stop the drilling. I think it was in the gulf.

The deep sea drilling. The concern was, that if you stop that, you're not getting a lease on those deep sea drills for another 20 years.

They're not coming back. And you just don't make them overnight.

With the damage that has been done, just to the economy, and to the oil and gas industry, are we doing permanent damage, or are these things just going into mothballs, and we can turn this around quickly?

DANIEL: We can turn it around. But I don't think quickly.

This is a very capital and labor intensive industry, and even if all the permitting is in place, and the government is a friend of the industry, which we want. Like we saw under President Trump.

It really took till the end of 2018, the beginning of '19, for the industry to produce as much as it was.

So it did take two solid years, of -- of believing that the government wasn't going to punish you.

You look at something like Keystone. That was ten years, and a billion dollars in the making. And then the rug was pulled out from under it, and all that money is lost.

So who is going to invest in the oil and gas industry right now, if you think the government can shut it down?

And that's one of my pet peeves, Glenn. And you can hear my voice getting angry.

GLENN: Oh, I know.

DANIEL: Jen Psaki will say, well, oil at $90 a barrel. You would think these rich fat cats will invest. It's not that they don't want to invest.

It's that they know, it's a risky investment. Because government is going to punish you. Deb Haaland, the interior secretary, is going to punish you.

The EPA administrator. Biden is talking about fed nominees, who look at banking issues through the lens of climate change.

So if you need a 50 million-dollar loan from the bank to finance this industry.

GLENN: I get it.

DANIEL: No.

Because the bank will not lend it to you. Because the Federal Reserve will raise your base points, and penalize you.

So, again, this administration is punishing the industry from every angle. Then they have the gall, to say, well, they better not raise prices.

Or take advantage of this. Like it's our fault.

When Elizabeth Warren blamed big meat. Remember that one?

GLENN: Yeah.

DANIEL: I mean, it's offensive.

GLENN: I -- I -- I will tell you, I -- I don't understand what's happening to us.

Unless the president and this administration, and those on the left. Have an agenda that is clearly not in step with the traditional American.

They -- I mean, this is -- this is self-inflicted wounds. And they're soon going to be mortal.

What do you -- what do you -- what are you thinking about the gas and oil prices and what's coming with this -- this war in -- in Ukraine.

DANIEL: Yeah. It's down a little bit today. Which is good news.

But I think overall, if this continues. And I don't think Putin is going to stop until he has everything he wants in the Ukraine. And maybe even more.

You could easily see gas at $150 a barrel. Like it was in 2008.

I mean, 125, by the end of March. Is very feasible. And that means six and 7-dollar-gallon gas.

But you know. Your audience knows. There are millions. Literally millions of products, that are made from -- from fossil fuels.

And so when the price of fertilizer goes up. When the price of pesticides go up.

Everything goes up in price. So when you go to the store, and you buy your chop meat. And it's expensive. It's the cow. The cow's diet. The transportation. The butcher, the slaughter house, the packaging, the plastic.

All of that stuff gets added on to your cost. You're ultimately, the one going to suffer.

And that's the frustration. This administration, before Putin even launched his first incursion. This administration was willing to let the American people suffer because they are so eager for this green revolution. These renewables. That they had to punish fossil fuels. They wanted fossil fuels to be the bad guys.

So that maybe you would go to the government and say, please, please, Mr. Biden. Please give us a Green New Deal. Please give us a Build Back Better.

We can't afford this anymore. And that's the really sad thing.

They were willing to punish the American people, for their agenda. And that's not just un-American. Unpatriotic. Quite frankly, it's immoral, and it's evil.

GLENN: Yeah. I agree with you.

Daniel, thank you so much. The Founder and executive director of Power the Future.

Daniel Turner. God bless. We'll talk to you again.

‘STUNNING’ statistics PROVE the church may be in DANGER

A recent report found that only 37 PERCENT of Christian pastors bring a ‘Biblical worldview’ with them to the pulpits. And, for Catholic priests, the numbers are even worse. Glenn breaks down these ‘STUNNING’ statistics which prove that the Christian church in America may be in BIG danger…

GLENN: By the way, there's a couple of things hear. Only half of evangelical pastors hold a Biblical worldview.

Now, this might be a little shocking for people who go to church. A study released Tuesday builds on an other report from American World View inventory 2022, which shows that 37 percent of Christian pastors bring a Biblical worldview with them, to the pulpits.

Now, a Biblical worldview is -- do you -- does every person have a purpose and a calling is this

Do you have a purpose for being here? And can God call you to something? I'm asking you, Stu.

STU: Why are you asking me, without the echo in your voice?

GLENN: Because I don't want you to feel damned, immediately.

STU: Oh, okay.

GLENN: So do you feel the purpose in calling?

STU: Sure.

GLENN: Family and value of life. Those come from God.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Do you believe in God?

STU: This is a tough one. After the previous two, but yes.

GLENN: Do you believe in creation? I know this is weird. Creation and history?

STU: I believe in history. I just believe in --

GLENN: I believe in creation. Do you? I mean, intelligent design. I don't know how he creates.

STU: Yeah. I don't find that question to be as riveting as some do. I don't really care how he did it, honestly. But it's on him.

GLENN: It's like, oh, we got you there. So you're saying, dinosaurs aren't real?

STU: Yeah. I don't really -- I don't know all the details to it. It wasn't there. I will say, I don't know how an i Phone works exactly. But I'm glad the texts go through.

GLENN: But I don't believe in Steve Jobs. He never existed. That just, all of a sudden appeared on a beach somewhere.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Let's see. Do you believe in sin? Salvation and relationship with God?

Do you believe in behavior and relationships, the Bible, and its truth and morals?

STU: I think.

GLENN: Yeah. I think those are all pretty easy. Only 37 percent of pastors. Believe in that.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: I mean, you might want to put that on the front sign. You know what I mean?

Like, hey, come in. Try our doughnuts. And we don't really believe what you think we believe.

STU: Well, this happened to you. Right? When you were doing your church tour. Back in the day.

GLENN: Oh, back in the day. We went to every church. Every religion. Because my wife wouldn't marry me without a common religion.

And I'm like. I love God and everything. But religion, I --

STU: This is a long time ago. This was not you, at the time though.

You were not. This church tour happened, in what? I don't remember what year it was.

GLENN: '99.

STU: Wow, it was a long time ago.

GLENN: A long time ago.

STU: You were finding your way. Mainly because your wife wouldn't marry you if -- you're forced into it.

GLENN: Right. I was forced into it. And she didn't believe in premarital sex either. And I'm like, okay. Chickaboo. I said, what is it going to take? And she said, God. Here I am. I'm practically a god, look at me. No.

STU: A Greek god.

GLENN: A Greek god. She vomited. And then I went to church. So we tried everything. I mean, we -- I really liked a Jewish synagogue we went to. Except you couldn't eat a lot of good things that I liked. And I don't speak a word of Hebrew. But it was in and out on Saturday, and it was pretty good. I since learned there was more than that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: But I went to this church. And it was. What do they call those churches? Congregational, right? The white churches on the greens.

Yeah. I think it's congregational churches. And they're non-denominational. And so I'm sitting there in the pew. And Tania and I were listening.

It's okay. It's church. And during it the sermon. The pastor said, now, you all know that I don't believe in God. But if there is a God, we should serve him.

And I'm like, hey, that doesn't make any sense at all. Okay?
(laughter)

GLENN: And that should be on the front door, someplace. Before you go and sit down, you should just know, our pastor does not believe in God. But if there is a God, maybe we should serve him.
(laughter)
You know, good safety tip there. So back in just a minute. I'm going to give you a reason on why I'm telling you this latest survey. It's crazy. Finnegan is a 12-year-old Husky Lab. And Daniel not his owner. That would be wrong.

His adult friend. He said Finnegan used to sleep all the time. We had to spike his food every day with cheese and ham, et cetera. And even then, he wouldn't eat most of his food. Sometimes for days. I was skeptical about ordering Ruff Greens. But I gave it a try. In a month or so, Finnegan was incredibly active, and he runs and plays with other dogs. He even chases rabbits and squirrels again. I wish I would have discovered this for him, long ago.

Well, get it when you can, you know. Doing the best you can, to raise a health dog. Ruff Greens can help you. It's not a dog food. It's vitamins and minerals. And all the other things that your dog needs to live a healthy life. And they love it. And you put it on there. Now, not all dogs love it, I'm sure. So they want to give you a free bag, to make sure that your dog loves it, as much as my dog Uno. And Daniel's dog Finnegan. They'll eat it, man. You just watch over them. They change. It is really great to see. It's Ruff Greens. RuffGreens.com/Beck. RuffGreens.com/Beck.

GLENN: On only 30 percent of Christian pastors believe and have a Biblical worldview. I mean, if you're not talking about sin and, you know, how to be a better Christ-like person. And how do you -- 37. What are they teaching?

STU: Those are the questions. The specific questions asked. Certainly, there are differences among denominations. And various questions.

But these are pretty basic points.

GLENN: Are these eight categories. Eight categories. Purpose and calling. Family and value of life.

God, creation and history. Faith practices. Sin, salvation, and relationship with God. Human character. And nature. Lifestyle. Behavior and relationships.

Oh, and the Bible. Truth and morals.

STU: Yeah. I know there are obviously disagreements on some of the intricate matters of faith between denominations and pastors.

GLENN: Sure. But 37 percent.

STU: The only thing I would ask, who is the defining Biblical worldview there? And I would assume --

GLENN: The bible.

STU: If you're assuming broad categories like that, that's a stunning number.

GLENN: Stunning. Stunning number.

STU: To the point of, how is it possible?

GLENN: So 57 percent of pastors leading non-denominational and independent churches, held a Biblical worldview, a nationwide study in February. Conducted in February. Nondenominational and independent churches were more likely to subscribe to a Biblical worldview than evangelical churches. Perhaps most surprisingly 48 -- 48 percent of pastors of Baptist churches, widely viewed as the most enthusiastic about embracing the Bible. Held a Biblical worldview, 48 percent.

Pastors of Southern Baptist churches by contrast were far more likely. 78 percent, to have Biblical beliefs. The traditional black Protestant churches and Catholic priests, I'm sorry. Just -- wow. I just had to read this again.

Traditional black Protestant churches and Catholic priests, were found least likely to hold a Biblical view. With the incidence of Biblical worldview, measured in the single dingles. Black churches. 9 percent of pastors and Catholic priests. 6 percent.

STU: I feel like you ask atheists, if you have a Biblical worldview. You would have higher than 9 percent.

GLENN: I think I could give it to Penn Jillette. And he would be like, you know.

STU: At 14 percent. I'm at 14 percent.

GLENN: Yeah. That's crazy. In churches with an average of 100 or fewer within attending weekly services. 41 percent of the pastors had a Biblical worldview. Larger fellowships with 100 to 250 adults fared better, with 45 percent.

However, 14 percent of pastors leading mid-sized churches, between 250 and 600 people. 14 percent.

And 15 percent of pastors with congregations of more than 600 adults. That's crazy.

STU: Yeah. That's hard to understand how that's possible. Why would you be involved in this business, right?

I hate to call it a business. It's your life's work. It's your career. Right?

GLENN: It's like. You know what it means? It's my uncle who is the head of safety at Boeing for years, and he would never fly. He would never get on an airplane. And he would be like, uncle Dave, what is that? And he's like, if you fly, you have to fly a Boeing.

STU: If they can care about it a little.

GLENN: It is my uncle, who is the head of safety at bowing for years. Okay.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: And he would never fly. He would never get on an airplane.

STU: Right.

GLENN: And you would be like, uncle Dave. I don't. What is that? And he's like, if you fly, you have to fly a Boeing. But there's no reason, logically that that thing should be able to take off and fly. I don't know if you're the best for safety, you know.

I think that's -- my uncle Dave should have been a priest maybe.

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Boy, I just wanted to go through some of the blue checkmark responses from yesterday. Because, gee. I just -- I just don't -- I just don't know what else to say. They were so right on target. Now, that's -- that's a joke. I didn't mean it. I didn't mean it actually target. You know, like Sarah Palin actually meant it. Alicia Sultan. Or Ashia, or whatever her name is. She says, God forbid. Listen, you're listening right now to a guy who is in the Radio Hall of Fame. I am so good at what I do. I don't even need to know how to pronounce names. I don't have to. They were like, this guy is like a radio god.

Yeah, but have you heard him?
Yeah, put him in the Hall of Fame.
Anyway, she said, God forbid, someone you love gets killed by gun violence. I second that. Second Amendment fetishizing will never bring that back, or a make that loss easier to bear. Yeah. I agree with that. I mean, hang on. Let me just take the ball out of my mouth here. I have this fetish thing with the Second Amendment. It is hot. Too many people believe that unfettered access to guns will never hurt someone they love, until it happens. Okay. I don't know what your point is really here. Marion Williams says. People will die because of this. And to be very clear, now, listen to this argument.
To be very clear. They're not doing this to protect the Second Amendment. They're doing it to protect the primacy of property rights.
Well, gosh, that's a good reason to do it too, I guess. Huh. I didn't even think of the property right part. But thanks for pointing that out, Marion. Neil Cattial says, it's going to be very weird if the Supreme Court ends a constitutional right to obtain an abortion next week. Saying it should be left to the states to decide, right after it imposed a constitutional right to conceal and carry firearms. Saying, it cannot be left to the states to decide.
Neil, here's what you're missing, dude.One is actually in the Constitution. It's called the Second Amendment. That tells the federal government, and the states exactly what they can and cannot do. What government cannot do. There is no right to abortion. I -- show it to me. Show it to me. When you can show it to me, I will change my argument. That, when it's not in -- I'll talk slowly for you, Neil.
When it's not in the Constitution, then, there's this part of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It's -- it's -- just look for the number ten. Okay? And that says anything that's not specifically in the Constitution. That goes then to the states. Yeah. Look at you. You're going to read something.
Jill Flipuffock says -- says the kind of people who desperately want to carry concealed weapons in public, is based on a generalized interest in self-defense are precisely the kind of paranoid, insecure, violence, fetishizing people, who should not be able to carry a concealed weapon in public. Okay. So let me get this right.
If you want to carry one, you're the kind that shouldn't carry one. So, in other words, when -- this is right. Jill, my gosh, my whole world is changing. Thank you for this. Now I understand when Martin Luther King went in and said to the state officials, hey. I need to have a concealed carry permit. He's exactly the kind of guy, you Democrats didn't want to carry a gun.
Yes! Jill, thank you for that enlightenment. David Hogged says, you're entitled to your opinion. But not your own facts. And like your own facts, you're not entitled to your own history. That's exactly what the Supreme Court decision is. It's a reversal of 200 years of jurisprudence that will get Americans killed. David, David
Have you read a book? Come on. Do you know anything at all -- name three founders. Can you do it? Right now, think. Go. Can't do it, David. 200 years.
Our -- the only times -- the only times in our history, and you wouldn't know this. Because you bury all the left. Buries the Democratic history.
The only time that we have any kind of history, where we're taking guns away from people, is when the government is afraid of those people. When the government gets really, really racist. Okay? That's why the Indians, yeah. That's why they're living on reservations now. Because we took away their guns. Yeah. Yeah.
That's why after the Civil War. And before the Civil War, slaves could not have guns. Why?
Because they might defend themselves. And then, after they were freed, oh, my gosh, the Democrats freaked out. Those freed slaves, will have a way to protect themselves. And they got it done through all kinds of laws, kind of like what you're doing now.
Thank you, David for writing in. You're special. March for Our Lives. Blue checkmark said yesterday.
The court's decision is dangerous. And deadly. The unfairly nominated blatantly partisan justices put the Second Amendment over our lives. No. I -- I -- may I quote the Princess Bride? I do not think those words mean what you think they mean. Okay?
Second Amendment is there, to protect our lives. To protect our property. And to protect our freedom.
I just want to throw that one out. The blood of American people who die from needless gun violence will be on their corrupt hands.
Okay. Wahajit Ali (phonetic) said, let's have a bunch of black, brown, and Muslim folks carry large guns in predominantly white neighborhoods.
I know the Second Amendment advocates will say that's great and encourage it. Because American history proves otherwise. We might get gun control. But we would also get a lot of chalk outlines.(laughter)Mr. Ali, you are so funny.
See, what you fail to recognize is that all of the people that you say are racist, aren't racist.
There are racists in this country, a lot of them seem to come from the left. You know, like the socialist Klan members. Or the socialist Nazi members. You see what they have both in common?
Yeah. Democratic Party. Anyway, Mr. Alley, if someone wants to carry a gun. And they're a Muslim. I have absolutely no problem. You're brown, you're pink, you're polka dot. You have covid and you're not wearing a mask. Or you don't have covid, and you're wearing 20 masks. And you want to carry a gun. I'm totally fine with that. Now, if you get a bunch of people. And, again, I don't care what color they are. Marching down my neighborhood, with large guns. Yeah. I am going to call the police because that's unusual.
What are you doing? We're just marching with our guns. Why in my neighborhood at night?
None of your business. Does Kavanaugh live around here? See, there's a difference. There's a difference. Right-wingers can freak out about nullification or packing or whatever.
No one cares. You broke all the norms of decency, democracy, and fairness. Oh, my gosh. Oh, wait. Wait.
This is from David Atkins. He has a great solution. At the end of the day, California and New York are not going to let Wyoming and Idaho tell us how we have to live in a Mad Max gun climate hell.
Oh, my gosh. David, let's break some bread, baby. Let's come together. Yeah. All right. Let me do my best Marianne Williamson.
Yeah. Yeah. Because we can come together. What you just said is the point of the Tenth Amendment. California and New York, I don't want to live like them.
You don't want to live like us. So let's not. Let's not. However, there are ten big things. And I've heard they've added to these. But there are ten big things, that no government in the United States of America, can do. Now, you want to change that, let's change it. Because what's so crazy, is there's this thing called the amendment process. You want to change the Constitution, you don't -- what -- all norms of decency. Democracy and fairness. You don't break those.
You want to change those amendments. You can do it. All you have to do is go through the amendment process. And then if you say, everybody has to have a pig on their lap. You get the states to vote for that. Put it on the amendment. You have it. Now, probably there would be another amendment that comes later. That says, hey, the big in the lap thing is really, really, stupid, and I think America lost its mind temporarily. So we're going to scratch that one out. From here on out, no. Absolute must have a pig on your lap kind of loss. Okay?
But both of those would be done through the amendment process. That would be doing it the decent way, the fair way, and the Democratic way. But David, you are cute. When you think, you're cute. Tristan Schnell writes in, when American service members die oversees, their caskets are brought to Dover Air Force base to be displayed and mourned. No, they're not displayed. I don't know if you've noticed this. But we try not to display the dead. But when Americans die because of gun violence, their caskets should be brought to the steps of the Supreme Court. So the justices can see what they've done. Yeah.
Tristan, I like that. Why don't we take every baby that's been aborted, and put them in a bucket. I mean, we're going to need a big bucket. Because there's millions of those.
And let's dump them, on the front steps of the Supreme Court. So they can see what they've done. Wow!
I got to thank all the blue checkmarks. Because you've really turned me around.

Why the Fed’s ‘MATH PROBLEM’ may result in MORE inflation

Yes, it’s possible for our economy to suffer from extremely high inflation while certain goods, products, and services experience DEFLATION as well, Carol Roth — a financial expert and author of ‘The War On Small Business’ — tells Glenn. The Fed actually is TRYING to deflate the economy, Roth explains. But while they’re saying one thing, the Fed’s current policy shows the exact opposite. And that ‘math problem,’ Roth says, is what could cause our economy to experience even more, ‘prolonged’ inflation. It’s a ‘dire situation,’ and there seems to be ZERO leadership willing to fix it…

GLENN: Is it not possible to have super high inflation, on some products. And super low deflation. Prices that are -- that are crazy.

Because they -- nobody is buying them, in other categories. Is that possible to have both of those?

CAROL: Yeah. I think that the best analogy for that would be kind of the '70s. And something that looks for stagflation. Where the economy stagnates. And it stagnates, like you said, because all the money has been sucked up in a couple of categories. And there really is a lot to go around in other places. There's not a lot of investments being made, and what not. But we still end up having high inflation. And we are certainly, a lot of people feel like we're in that sort of stagflation, you know, arena, right now. And it can continue on the trajectory. But you have to remember in terms of deflation. I mean, that's what the Federal Reserve is trying to do. They are actively trying to deflate, you know, not just the bubbles and assets, but they're trying to deflate spending, to cool off the economy. That's why they're shutting off their balance sheets. That's why they're raising their interest rates. It's meant to cool off demand. And that's the math problem that I keep talking about. They keep saying, oh, the consumer. And businesses are going to save us from a recession. But at the same time, the policy is meant to do the exact opposite. The policy is meant to make it, so that people aren't able to spend in the same way. So those two objectives are at odds with each other. And so I do think, that we could end up in this prolonged period, like you said, where the inflation hasn't quite gotten under control. Especially since we have so many supply demand imbalances in our economy. We have a labor imbalance. We have a food imbalance. We have an energy imbalance. And we have a commodity imbalance. And that's not going to it be solved by any monetary policy. That requires real action. And we don't have leadership, that's willing to lead or frankly do anything.

GLENN: So we have -- as I see it, we're looking at a situation. Again, I'm going back. And please, correct me where my thinking is off. But I'm going back to the Great Depression. So people were afraid. They held on to their money. They spent what they had to, and what they could afford. But nothing else.

That caused the labor market to shoot out of control. To -- to about 25 percent unemployment. Because the factories were closing down. Because no one was buying anything, from the factories. Which then, in turn, made FDR say, we're going to build the Hoover damn, to give people jobs. But it was all the government money, which would have just caused more inflation, if I'm not mistaken. Had it not been for the -- and I hate to say it this way. But the saving grace of the Second World War. Right? Were we in a death spiral? I mean, the war was definitely a different kind of reset. And I think a lot of the logic that you're talking about makes sense. If consumer sentiment is really important. And it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, if people don't feel confident, they don't go out and spend. They're worried about their inflation. And being able to feed their family. And get to work. They aren't going to spend -- I think there are a couple of things that we have that are different. And it's not necessarily better for the average American. So I just want to be clear. That I'm on your side, and I'm not saying that it's better.

But because of this huge supply and demand imbalance. We have two jobs available for every person looking. The likelihood is that that probably contracts to be, you know, a better match, than having massive unemployment just because of that scenario is going on. And we also have a whole slew of Americans, who are doing -- you know, have done very well. They have been the beneficiaries of this giant wealth transfer from Main Street to Wall Street. So I think we're going to have a lot of, you know, different outcomes. You know, that inadequately, that's been driven by government policy. And that's never a good thing. Because, you know, the social unrest that comes with it. And rightfully so. Because, you know, these policies have really put the middle class. The working class. And in some cases, the lower class, at risk, to the benefit of the people on the inside. And so the numbers on average, may not show how dire the situation is. And so they'll be able to spend. And say, oh, everything is great. And the consumer is doing well, when people are really struggling. And, you know, that's going to be when we continue to just be furious. And, you know, demand something be done about that.

GLENN: Carol, thank you so much for everything that you do.

Glenn: I didn't think Roe v Wade would end in my lifetime

GLENN: We just have to take a minute, and just think of the miracle we just witnessed.

There isn't a soul, not one soul, in this audience that thought that this would happen. Like this. This fast.

I didn't think it would happen in my lifetime.
