Stopping this bill 'REVERSES EVERYTHING’ the Civil Rights Movement taught

New Hampshire House Bill 544 SHOULD be anything but controversial. It prohibits "divisive concepts related to sex and race in state contracts, grants, and training programs," like arguing that one race or gender is superior to another. But occupational psychologist Dr. Karyln Borysenko tells Glenn that New Hampshire's Democrats are "lockstep" in fighting against it. And, she says, leftist leaders are successfully teaching Americans that it's now considered unacceptable to treat all races equally, too. So, Glenn says, if Democrats succeed in stopping this bill, it will reverse EVERYTHING the Civil Rights Movement tried to teach us as a nation. The stakes have never been higher.

Why Fani Willis CANNOT Dismiss the Phone Records That Accuse Her of Perjury

It’s been quite the week for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. While she and her special prosecutor “friend” insist that they were not in a relationship before he was hired, phone records recently submitted by former president Donald Trump suggest otherwise. Glenn and Stu discuss what the records found, why Fani Willis, as an attorney, cannot discredit them, and if she has any way to argue herself out of a perjury charge.

GLENN: Sorry. I was analyzing my voice there, when I got a little lost. Because my voice was gone over the weekend.

I have -- I mean, I swear to you. There's no reason for me to do this job.

I don't know why I have this job, I don't.

I have vocal cords that go at the drop of a hat. And so --

STU: There any health problems that you have yet to acquire?

GLENN: I don't have ALS. That I know of. That I know of. I don't have ALS.

STU: That's good. There you go.

GLENN: All right. And I really need my voice today. Because Fani Willis.

STU: Oh. Fanny.

GLENN: Now, in case you don't remember, Fani Willis is the prosecutor. She is the DA that is making this case, about Donald Trump, you know, trying to steal the election. Yada, yada.

Well, there's a little problem there. Because somebody found out, that she was paying one of the expert witnesses and investigators, an awful lot of money.

He was making like -- I think almost twice as much, right?

STU: As some of the other experts.

GLENN: Yes. Some of the other people. So people started looking into that.

And then the rumor came into this investigator. That they were having an affair. And they were going on lavish trips together. And so they wondered, wow.

Hmm. I mean, is something going on here, that, you know, might lack some professionalism.

Yes. And then, it -- there became this little squabble of, when did you hire him?

Did you hire him before, or after this case.

What -- what -- what is that?

There was also a divorce going on.

And he was getting a divorce. This prosecutor.

He was getting a divorce. And it came up in the divorce trial, that those two were having an affair.

And he said, no. I've never had an affair in my marriage. Okay.

Well, that wasn't true. But he got on the stand and said, well, it depends on -- I'm not kidding.

I'm not making this up. Depends on how you define marriage. In my head, we were divorced for a long time.

Okay. Not usually the way we do that. But okay.

Redefine some more things about marriage. So the problem is, they swore under oath, several times.

That they didn't have a relationship. At all prior to 20 --

STU: Well, again, this was a big part of the testimony.

GLENN: Yeah. I know.

STU: Do you mean romantic relationship. Or relationship as if they met each other.

GLENN: Look it up. Do we have any porn music? That kind of a relationship. You know what I mean? Okay. This kind.
(music)

STU: Yeah. I could see how --

GLENN: Ding-dong, pizza delivery, all right?

STU: All right. So they had a -- they admitted to the relationship after he was hired. I believe he was hired in November of 2021. So they -- I think said the relationship started in early 2022.

GLENN: Right. After he was hired.

STU: Yeah. After he was hired.

And so the -- of course, they went to work to say, wait a minute. It seems like it started way where that. Including a testimony from someone. One of her best friends at the time.

GLENN: Right. And then somebody else that said, attorney-client privilege. That's like Fifth. We know what you're saying. Sit down.

STU: One of his attorneys was asked about this. And obviously they wouldn't have asked him about this, if they didn't know what the answer was. But he couldn't -- he was able to get out of it, with attorney/client privilege.

However, the other witness said they had been together since at least 2019. Now, of course, this is important. Because the accusation here is that she's trying to extend this, and do as much as they can. To get as much money in this guy's pocket as possible. In other words, her goal is not justice here.

Her goal is to enrich this guy, who in turn was enriching her. Right?

Now, if their answer was immediately, look, the guy is the best in the business.

Yeah, we had an affair. It had nothing to do with this.

We've been dating since 2019, but it doesn't matter. Because, you know, I knew he did great work. That's why I brought him on this case. It had nothing to do with this case. They probably skate scot-free on this. But because of his divorce. They don't go down on that road. They decide instead, to deny everything. And that leads to some problems.

GLENN: Some little problems. So it was really, he said/she said stuff. And you didn't have any evidence except it seemed pretty obvious.

Nobody in their right mind, could buy their excuses. But if you want to have no shadow of a doubt. You don't really have any evidence. Right?

STU: Remember their excuses too. That they went on multiple, expensive trips. That he paid for on his business credit card. Okay?

His business credit card. He paid for those trips. Then they're -- their story is, after they returned, she took some amount, thousands and thousands of dollars.

Each time, out of her glob of cash, she keeps at her house. That there are no records of. And she takes the thousands of dollars. And gives it to him, to pay back for her part of the travel. Remember, they're dating at this point.

For her part of the travel, and then he takes it, and then never deposits it into his bank account.

He just -- I guess what keeps it in his glove box and pays for gas, every time, in cash.

GLENN: Well, I mean, it's his business credit card.

He went into the business and said, here, I owe you this, and just gave them lots of cash.

STU: Well, of course there would be a record of that. So that's not what happened.

GLENN: Well, unless the accountant at the business, doesn't -- we don't count cash coming in. We just put it in. No. This drawer, right here.

STU: Oh, yeah.

Well, again, if you had -- if he paid in cash for the trips. This might be kind of believable.

Even though, it's never happened before.

GLENN: No. No.

STU: This interaction between two people, in a romantic relationship, has never occurred.

GLENN: Okay. So now, apparently, there's something called phone records.

STU: What?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: What does that mean?

GLENN: Well, it means they can track your location by triangulating your location.

Now, this is -- it's kind of interesting.

That the phone records show, they had a lot of late-night phone calls.

Well, that kind of came in. And ding-dong.

Pizza.

You know, he was playing the pizza deliver guy.

STU: He was. Look, sometimes, pizzas do get delivered late at night.

And other times, people look under the box.

GLENN: So they -- hmm.

So over 2,000 voice calls.

And just under 12,000 interactions were changed.

STU: Wait. It's 12,000 text messages.

GLENN: Yeah. 12,000.

STU: 2,000 voice calls. Can you think of anything more annoying than receiving 2,000 voice calls, from anyone.

Let alone Fani Willis.

Thank God.

GLENN: I wonder if Tania and I -- hazard pay. I wonder if Tania and I have had 2,000 calls back to each other and 12,000 text messages.

There's no way.

STU: What was the period, again?

It's a year.

GLENN: It was January to November. Not a year. Ten months.

STU: Okay. I talk to my wife, on the phone, I'm trying to think.

Let's go crazy and say twice a day. I mean, I live with her. Right?

So I see her at home in the morning. And I see her at night.

And during the day, there's a couple of times she might call or a text.

I could probably count up a month of our text.

To see how much was exchanged.

But there's no way it's a thousand.

GLENN: So I don't carry a phone.

But I have an i Pad that I text. And Tania probably texts me two or three times a day. Maximum. Maximum.

STU: Right. That sounds about right.

I mean, again, I don't know. Interactions, it's a little bit -- it's a little bit -- honestly, the text messages. Some people text a lot. Some people write small text messages.

And some people give you the emoji reactions to them. I don't know what counts in there. So 12,000, maybe that's understandable.

Two thousand voice calls in ten months! I know -- I bet I have not made 2,000 phone calls in ten months, if you combined every call I've made.

GLENN: Now. Even if -- even if the 12,000 text messages, were just doing the salsa dancer emoji.

STU: Is there a salsa dancer emoji?

GLENN: Yeah. You've never seen that?

STU: I've never seen an emoji.

GLENN: Yeah. So there's the salsa dancer, and I don't know what the salsa dancer is supposed to represent. I have no idea.

So maybe that's the code. Salsa dancer. You know what I mean? It's like, hey. Let's hook up. Salsa dancer.

STU: Right. They have their own language.

GLENN: If there's 12,000 salsa dancers, we know something is going on. Because, I mean, what does that mean? That's code --

STU: Would you be surprised if we saw a lot of eggplants and peaches?

GLENN: I don't. I don't know what those mean.

STU: 8,000 of the 12,000 were eggplants or peaches.

Why -- I guarantee you, they would be like, look, have you ever had this -- this authentic native dish, that has both peaches and eggplants.

We kept making it. That's all.

They will go to any length to lie about this, at this point.

GLENN: Oh, they are done.

So here's what she said. So you know, they have him, how many times?

Forty-five times. Thirty-five occasion.

STU: Yes. And that was a conservative estimate.

Thirty-five was a conservative estimate about how many times he was there.

GLENN: So they have things like this.

September 11th, through the 12th.

Deeper analysis. We don't need to say that.

Described the attached affidavit from the cell phone tracking.

He left the Dural (phonetic) area, approximately 10:15 p.m.

Traveling directly to and arriving within the geofence located on the Dogwood address, to approximately 10:45.

He left the dogwood address approximately 3:28 a.m. What happens between 10:45 and 3:28 a.m.

I mean, I just...

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Then he leaves there, and he texts Fani at 4:20. Okay.

STU: For the purposes of this, please refer to her as Fani.

GLENN: I'm having a hard time with your peach's remark.

Following a call from Fani Willis at 11:32 p.m. which continues for 40 minutes, leaving the towers located near his residence at East Cobb, at approximately 12:05 a.m.

Ongoing call at 12:38.

STU: He leaves his house to drive to her house, and is on the phone with her the whole way. Right?

Okay. Then he goes -- just, think about this. Then he goes to this area, which includes her home. A very small area between cell phone towers.

Ask. How long does he stay there until? To ever

GLENN: Until 4:45 a.m.

STU: 4:45 a.m.?

Is it really 4:45. I didn't realize it was that long, but he never spent the night, as they both testified. He never spent the night. How would you justify this?

GLENN: You know what makes sense now? Why did the prosecution, when they were talking to him and her. Why did they say, was he ever at where you laid your head?

STU: She used that terminology first in the testimony.

They were trying to say, what about -- she said, I don't even know.

I just kept the cash, wherever I laid my head. Of course, that's always what you do. Let's say you go to a motel. You bring your $50,000 with you. It stays with you, wherever you go.

I know a lot of people operate this way, that are in the mob. Other than that, I don't know. Of anyone who does.


GLENN: So here's what she said, since Friday, since the story broke.

Quote, the records do nothing more than demonstrate, that a special prosecutor, wade's telephone was located somewhere.

STU: Not him. His phone. His phone could have been -- what if it has wings. It was flying around at night. We have no idea.

GLENN: He is. He is a guy, he loves to share.

STU: He's a big sharer.

GLENN: I won't use my phone between 10 o'clock at night. And let's say 4:55 in the morning.

STU: I have unlimited minutes. No one is using them. Why don't you use my phone?

GLENN: Use them. So records do nothing more than demonstrated Special Prosecutor Wade's telephone was located somewhere, within a densely populated, multiple mile radius, where various residents, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and other businesses are located.

STU: How many of those are located at 4:20 a.m.

GLENN: Well, I would also like to say, how many cases have you tried, on cell phone location?

Because --

STU: This is so bad.

GLENN: What she is -- what she is now arguing against is what's called cell hawk.

And law enforcement and attorneys say, this is the system to triangulate phones.

So everybody who is like Googled in.

How do I get rid of 120-pound sack of meat. And bones.

And then, you know, the girlfriend is missing.

They always are like, yeah. But we have you.

Going to the Home Depot.

Back to your house.

Then to the grave site.

I'm sorry. To that park you were visiting.

You know what I mean?

This is the same thing. So if she discredits this.

How many cases. I mean, because if I were a defense attorney.

And my client had gone to Yale. With this as the linchpin.

Examine she discredits.

I would be like, even the district doctor attorney says, this isn't good. It's really bad.

STU: Do you think she's the type of person who would risk multiple murder investigations of -- just to protect herself, Glenn.

GLENN: Yes. Yes, I do.

So does he.

​How to Heal Our Nation One Grocery Trip at a Time

As the world becomes more and more chaotic, we can choose to either be mad or kind. Both are contagious, so what would you rather spread? Glenn reads an article that recounts something we are probably all familiar with: Leaving a grocery store parking lot. The writer recalls a stark distinction between two people: One man who was cursing up a storm and an older man who lent a helping hand and kind words. “Your attitude is a choice,” Glenn says. So, what choice will you make today?

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Let me start with something I read on the Blaze today.

It's the Kroger checkout aisle. The woman in front of me has tried three different credit cards so far, and none of them have gone through. A few aisles away, a baby cries until her mom places an i Pad in front of her. She descends lazily, into the virtual world where she'll probably live most of her life.

I'm inspecting the quality of everything in my cart. Seeing if there's anything I could negotiate a discount for, while rethinking that bottle of Kombucha I grabbed. Do I really need that?

The woman bagging my groceries appears to be old enough to have comfortably retired by now. But instead, she's trying to lift my 12-pack of toilet paper into my cart. While I stop and tell her, I can handle that.

Maybe I've just been too wrapped up in my head to really take stock of the sincere moment of connection at the grocery store entrance.

It was just a brief blur of humanity in increasingly disconnected world. When she tells me the total, the cashier gives me a sympathetic look. It adds up fast now, huh. I give her a weak chuckle.

Yeah. Yeah. Sure does. Neither of us say, thanks Biden. But somehow we both know that we're both thinking it. And our smiles just widen a bit.

In the parking lot, there's a man on a speaker phone with somebody he's very angry with. He's shouting profanities into the phone, dropping N-words like he's J. Cole. I know he sees me loading my groceries in the back of my Kia Soul right next to him.

We made eye contact when he yelled into his i Phone about being disrespected.

It's one of the most beautiful Texas afternoons, I've seen in a long time.

There's not one. I mean, literally, not one single cloud in the sky.

The air has maintained the lingering crispness of a colder temperature, as the sun melts the winter away.

Someone cuts me off, in the way out of the parking lot.

And I realize, I can't blame Biden for that. I used to think the universal test of your humanity was whether or not you put your shopping cart into its designated shopping cart. But I think the bar is significantly lower now.

The new test is if you can handle grocery shopping without cussing somebody out.

I'm not angry because I'm still thinking about the old man I passed at the Kroger entrance. He was wearing a hat that I believe said he was a veteran from the Korean War.

He stopped the young man, whose job it was to pick up the carts that were scattered haphazardly in the parking lot, and return them to the store.

The old man shook the young man's hand. And said something that sounded like, you're doing good work.

I thought maybe he knew the young man.

Maybe it's a neighbor. That works at Kroger.

Maybe these men were neighbors too.

I don't know. It's not a big town.

Or maybe he didn't know him.

Maybe I had misinterpreted the whole scene in my usual distracted rush to get my groceries without collapsing into despair about the price of garlic.

Maybe I've been too wrapped up in my own head, to really take stock in the sincere moment of connection at the grocery store entrance.

It was just a brief blur of humanity in an increasingly connected world. I had a moment, watching the woman if you understood to find a card that wouldn't be declined.

When I thought, maybe I should just offer to pay.

But her card went through right before I acted. But I could only -- I could only trace the impulse back to that old man at the front of that old entrance. He was kind to somebody at the grocery store.

Maybe I could be kind too. I realized while driving the uncrowded Main Street back home. That humanity is equally as contagious as inhumanity.

But significantly less engaging.

I couldn't help, but remember the details of the man yelling into his phone. But the random act of sincerity by the old man, that went almost unregistered by me.

Headlines today are plastered with the end of the world. He killed her. They hate him.

Rarely is there an article about the old man who shook the young man's hand on a Sunday afternoon at the local grocery store.

Or the neighbors who finally escalated their friendship from an occasional hello. To the planning of game night.

The graduate of AA being baptized at church. Or the parents who worked it out, instead of splitting up. The countless stories of people who had every excuse to despair, to lash out, but didn't.

We don't read those stories. But we do live them.

I'm pulling into my the driveway where my husband is waiting to help me unload. We go on a short walk around the neighborhood. Notice everyone who has painted their door, or is having a cookout.

The sun is now setting, in that kind of endless skyway, Texans brag about.

We brag about it, when we get a call from a relative someplace else, asking how we are.

Ah. We're actually doing very well.

This is written by one of the newer members of my staff.

She is a remarkable woman. And when I first hired her, I said to all the other producers, she's not depressed yet.

Keep all of the news away from her.

She just has a way of looking at things, and seeing the good things in life.

And it's not because she doesn't read the news, she does. She just has a different outlook. Because she just -- I think -- as many of my staff do. They walk with God. Try to walk with God.

And somehow or another, she just has some armor on her, that I lack. And I'm a better man. Because I work with her.

And I work with -- I work with the best team ever. Except for Stu.

I go home, and my wife says, how was your day?

Hmm. Usual. Another better day in America.

And we laugh, or we commiserate, because she's been outside in the grocery store.

You know, one of our problems is, in fact, it may be our biggest problem, we're not grateful anymore. We're not grateful for anything, really.

We're not. You know how great we have it, still yet today?

With all of the problems that we have. And we've got big ones.

We're still the luckiest people in the world. Our standard of living is insane. Insane.

Even when we're struggling, we're better off than anybody in Europe.

Take a minute to notice. Don't let the bad things just impact you. Let the good things impact you as well. Maybe if you go to TheBlaze.com and you find this story, fear and loathing in the Kroger parking lot, read that, and then read the comments underneath it.

It's amazing how many were like, oh, yeah. I just saw this.

Or, you know, I'm going to do this. I stand by this audience. It's just different.

Read that article. Share it. Share your just in the comments. Better yet, just do something.

I don't think that guy in the -- in the hat, knew that guy.

I was raised by a dad, who could have fought in Korea.

He joined the Marines. And he was flat-footed. So they kicked him out.

He so wanted to be a marine. But he used to notice, people that were not noticed, all the time.

He was the kind of guy that was so embarrassing when I was growing up.

You know, I was -- we would go into a restaurant, and somebody would be really good. And he would say, can I see your manager?

I'm like, Dad.

And before he would leave, he would always say, you have an amazing server here.

You have an amazing employee. Sometimes, that's more valuable than a tip, I think. I mean, leave a tip. My dad used to leave tips too.

But nobody communicates with each other anymore.

I was in the parking lot of a grocery store, just a couple of weeks ago. I did the same thing with a guy. I was watching him. Young guy.

And he was rounding up all the shopping carts. And I thought, you can't get anybody anymore.

I was at a Popeyes. My wife is still gone, so dad made chicken last night. And I went through the Popeyes. And this guy was brutal. Just brutal. I've never been to a Popeyes where it wasn't a brutal experience. It's kind of like, it's great chicken. You know. They practically throw it at you, you know. But this guy was just awful. Miserable. Miserable.

My daughter, because I forgot my wallet, my daughter paid.

And she had Apple Pay. And this was his response. He just -- he opened up the window and he said, I don't remember. $480, please.

And before we could, you know, respond to the, oh, my -- hey, you're shouting at us. Wow, that's a lot of money for some chicken.

My daughter said, I have Apple Pay.

He said, oh, perfect.

And I'm like, I don't -- why?

Why? It's a choice, your attitude is a choice. How could you choose to be like that all the time?

So this guy was rounding up the shopping carts.

And I thought, man, look at him.

He's, actually, working hard.

And I went up to him too. And I said, hey.

Good job. Thank you. And I helped him push some stuff in.

I don't know if that made a difference in his day. But it did mine.

Just noticing, somebody working hard. Somebody trying to do the right thing.

WARNING: George Soros and The FCC Are DISMANTLING Talk Radio

The mainstream media is collapsing as Vice Media and CBS News announce major changes. But now, progressives have talk radio in their sights. Glenn reviews the latest changes to the world of radio that could dismantle the entire system and crush free speech: George Soros is on the verge of taking control of Audacy, the second largest broadcaster in America; An investor based in Singapore is trying to take over Cumulus Media, the third largest broadcaster; And the FCC is forcing all broadcasters to start posting a race and gender scorecard on the demographics of their workforce. This is all an attempt to crush one of the last bastions of free speech, Glenn says.

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: I want to give a mile-marker. I feel that part of my job is to inform you.

What direction are we going in? And how fast are we going?

Let me give you a couple of stories that are gravely, gravely concerning.

I told you, last week, the Soros fund management, you know, run by billionaire George Soros and his son. Have now taken control or are on the verge of taking control of Audacy.

Audacy is the second largest broadcaster in America. Only iHeartRadio owns more.

And thank God, at this point, i Heart media. IHeartRadio has the Premiere Radio networks.

I've worked for this company in one way or another, since 1989.

They are my partner with this broadcast. And they have been always very, very supportive. If it wasn't for my partners, Julie Talbot and Dan Meador, and all of the people at i Heart media, who have just -- this show wouldn't be heard anywhere.

So i Heart is the only one, right now, not under attack.

And I will tell you about this. First, Audacy. Audacy amassed $1.9 billion in debt. They filed for bankruptcy.

And now Soros is taking on the -- the fund, and they will be the largest shareholder, once the bankruptcy proceedings conclude. Where are we?
They're dismantling radio.

And buying radio up. Now, Soros has already bought, what?

Last year. I think 50 radio stations that were all Spanish-speaking.

Gee. Isn't that interesting?

Now he's buying up, the second largest broadcaster in America.

Audacy owns 220 stations. News Talk, in New York. Chicago. Los Angeles. All some of the biggest news talk stations in the country.

They own the -- the radio stations, including KDWM, in Las Vegas.

Ph.D. Philadelphia.

KDK in Pittsburgh. They have Dana Loesch on many other stations. They have Sean Hannity. Mark Levin. And George Soros has spent more than $21 billion over the last few decades.

He spent 1.3 billion in 2022 alone.

Most of that cash went to left-wing causes, including Media Matters, Planned Parenthood, the Sunrise Movement.

He is the guy who has put in the radical DAs. And the radical attorneys general.

And now, what?

He's buying up talk radio. Why would you do that?

Why would you buy all of these broadcasts?

It seems like it's a failing industry, right? It's not.

It's not. About 80 percent of the people, till listen to radio.

80 percent. That's incredible. You think -- nobody listens to the radio. 80 percent still listen to the radio.

Okay. So that is the second largest broadcaster, now going to George Soros.

Then we have this.

Cumulus. Cumulus used to be the ABC radio network. It used to be the largest. Now, I think it is the third largest.

Cumulus is facing a takeover from an investor based in Singapore.

Part of the process of their bankruptcy. It has asked for, and received from the FCC permission to become as much as 100 percent foreign-owned.

So the third largest broadcaster, is about to go to a Singapore Holdings Company.

How does this bid, for America?

You have George Soros, and a Singapore can. And then i Heart, all alone.

But don't worry, news for radio gets even better. Yesterday, Brenden Carr, he's an FCC commissioner. He came out and said, the FCC has just ordered every broadcaster to start posting a race and gender scorecard, that breaks down the demographics of their workforce.

Activist lobbied for this, because they want to see businesses pressured into hiring people based on their race and gender. Courts have already overturned the FCC twice for pressuring broadcasters to making hiring decisions in violation of the Constitution.

I dissent.

This is a shot across our bow now, if the Supreme Court doesn't stop them again. We will now, if I want to be on radio, have to disclose, by the way.

I don't have a problem doing this.

I'm almost 2 percent Native American.

So I'm a minority, inside of a minority.

Anyway, we have to start hiring, based on gender and everything else.

I don't care what, you know, male, female. I don't care who you sleep with. I don't care what color you are.

I really don't.

I want to know what's inside of your head.

I want to know, how you think.

Can you bring something different, that I don't bring to the table?

That's how I hire.

Can you fit what your different thinking is, into what I'm trying to accomplish?

If you can, great!

We're going to work together forever.

Most of the people, that I work with, and I apologize for this. Spend their life with me.

STU: Sort of feels that way.

GLENN: Because we have a good working relationship. We all respect each other. Again, except for Stu.

This is really, and let me give you another one. This is not about radio.

Vice media, stops publishing on Vice.com. Slashes hundreds of jobs, amid mainstream media death spiral.

So all of these mainstream media companies, they're all -- did you hear about CBS?

And Catherine Herridge -- how do you say her name?

Herridge. Right? I can't remember.

Anyway, worked with her at Fox. We were obviously very close.

But she's very, very credible.

She's worked -- I don't agree with her all the time. But she's an actual journalist.

And CBS News they just threw her out.

She's gone. Now, they're saying, that's we've laid lots of people off, recently.

Because we're collapsing.

STU: That's their argument. For themselves.

GLENN: Yeah. We're collapsing.

Okay. Well, maybe. Or maybe a real journalist just isn't welcomed there anymore.

I don't know.

But everything, all of the media, what I said to Stu. And when we were at the height of Fox. I said, we have to get out of here.

And everybody is like, what?

Everybody works their whole life to get here. And I'm like, we have to get out of here.

I said, this whole thing is going to burn itself down. It's all going to collapse.

And here we are. It's all collapsing.

But as I said at the time as well, if you're here, while it collapses, and you'll survive, you'll then be working for the government.

Because all of these people, will get bail. They'll get bailed out by the federal government.

We can't. These institutions are far too important. This has it goes back to your Cloward and Piven stuff from yesterday.

It's worth watching. If you go to your Blaze TV account. You can watch it on demand.

It's one of those situations.

Vice is a great example of this.

How many articles did vice write about how your career and life were collapsing.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

Over and over again.

STU: Over and over again.

And all these companies, writing for years. About how conservative media personalities were going to flame out, and their businesses were going to collapse, are now all gone.

They're just -- they've all either dissolved. Or fired all their people. And AI is writing their articles.

It is, sure, satisfying. For me. But it is -- it is embarrassing for them, I would assume.

It's -- I don't know. Maybe they've all just -- they all moved on. They're all taking money from the government. And living at home now.

Or working from home now.

I don't know. It doesn't seem like they're able to keep any of these things afloat.

How much -- how much money did Vice get?

Billions and billions of dollars.

Of just free investment cash. Dumped into that place.

GLENN: Can you imagine if we would have had hundred --

STU: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Hundred million. Just 100 million. Compared to the billions that they had.

Just 100 million -- 50 million in investment.

Can you imagine what we could have done with it? Because we wouldn't have wasted it. They just wasted it.

STU: Gone.

GLENN: Gone.

STU: And this is also while they're producing shows for HBO. I mean, they were handed a media empire, with let's be honest, no valid reason to be handed a media empire.

I mean, like, vice did some interesting stuff early on.

They were kind of the different. They just turn into the typical left-wing news source.

And we were supposed to sit here and be like, oh, wow. This is amazing. It's innovative.

Let's just throw money at these people. What do they do?

The place is gone, basically.

GLENN: We sat there, for I don't know how many meetings. I sat there with big, big companies, that were trying to figure out, how we were doing it.

And at the time, we were doing it, more right than anybody else. We were still wrong.

And we had no margin of error. Because it was all on me.

And they were trying to figure out, you know, what do we do? What do we do?

And I remember sitting in meetings going, your numbers don't make sense. I'm sorry, guys. I'm not an accountant. I'm not a good businessman.

But I can look at this. You're selling what for what? And how do you even know that's true?

And it was all hype. It was all hype.

Now all that hype is over. And it's all falling apart. The mainstream media is falling apart.

And look what's happening.

You know, I mean, said recently, it's been quiet, on the western front.

It's been all quiet for quite some time in talk radio.

Haven't really had any attacks on talk radio. Been squished with digital. But on talk radio, haven't had a single problem.

That's new.

What was that all about?

They forget about us?

No. No. They're just going to take it.

They're just going to take it in public/private partnerships. And the left, because our billionaires do nothing.

Honest to God, our billionaires who believe in America, the only one that I know, that is actually putting his money where his mouth is. Is Donald Trump.

I mean, there is a handful.

STU: Yeah. I don't agree with that. There are some of these guys, very active. Not always publicly.

GLENN: Yes. But George Soros.

I mean, if you're going to stand up, stand up. Stand up.

You want to stay in the shadows? That's fine.

And I thank you for it. But get your friends to stand up. Why isn't -- we know the power of talk radio.

We know the power of radio. Where are our billionaires? Why aren't they stepping to the plate?

Why?

Anyway, I want you to do me a favor.

I want you to support your local radio station. The station that is -- is running this program.

Please, support them. Please, buy the advertising.

If you -- I'm not asking to you buy something you don't need.

If you hear somebody advertising.

Something like, okay. I need that.

Or I'm looking at that. Please, go to that store, or whatever.

Local radio is critical. Critical.

You've got to have a local radio station. That is not controlled by the Borge (phonetic).

We thank our sponsors, and we thank our local radio stations. Our affiliates. You're the heart of us. Thank you.

New York’s $355 Million Trump Charge Just Got MORE INSANE
RADIO

New York’s $355 Million Trump Charge Just Got MORE INSANE

New York’s $355 million civil fraud charge against former president Donald Trump just got MORE INSANE. The charge was already unprecedented. But Glenn and Stu reveal how New York has handled previous similar cases — including the MUCH WORSE actions taken by other companies charged under this rule. This is so obviously a targeted attack against Trump, Glenn argues: “There is no way that I would keep my business in New York. There is no rule of law now.”

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Okay. Hello, Stu.

STU: Glenn!

You know, I was thinking about this big lawsuit.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Against the president, former president.

First, he had the $83 million from E. Jean Carroll situation.

GLENN: Which was really caused by him.

STU: This was an interesting point.

He got, I think a totally false accusation against him.

GLENN: Yeah. Totally false.

STU: He said, this was false, this is crazy. He fought it. They went through this case. I think he totally got screwed.

And they ruled against him for a few million dollars. And they said, basically, you can't go on and talk about this anymore.

And he just did.

He was like, I don't care what you say.

GLENN: Yeah. And you know what, you have that right, to do that. If that's what you -- you know, if that's what you want.

STU: He knew what the price of that was. Yes, correct.

STU: He knew the price would be high.

And sometimes, occasionally, people made the point, that Donald Trump, you know, creates some of his own issues. Okay?

GLENN: Yes. But he also has what I like to call FU money.

STU: He has FU money. Right. Exactly.

GLENN: 85 million, it's worth it. She sucks.

STU: Sometimes people have pointed out. That when he makes some of his own problems, he will still say he's the victim of persecution.

He will kind of go to that -- that's kind of the way it goes.

And some have noticed this over time. But might I address this lawsuit, that came down, and this ruling in New York.

GLENN: $355 million. It will cost him over 400 million, when it's all said and done.

By the way, ruling yesterday, the same -- or, the same Supreme Court justice.

Said with that he of some provided a good reason, as to why he should delay the judgment from last week.

So he said, you failed to explain much less justify any basis for a stay. I'm confident that the appellate division will protect your appellate rights. So he has to cough this up.

Now, they're talking about, this is so much money, that he's going to have to put up, probably real estate and sell the -- some real estate to be able to pay for this.

Because you have to put -- you have to put that money into a bond.

And then you have a bond holder, holding it for you.

STU: Right.

GLENN: And you have to pay them an additional fee.

STU: Right. Right. And then hopefully, you win the appeal. And eventually, don't have to pay it then.

GLENN: It will still cost you about 50 million. This has it will still suck.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah.

STU: But talking about whether he's the victim of political persecution. I believe this case, it's actually provable.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

STU: Like it is -- but it's not just, oh, yeah.

It's not the just, oh, yeah. Well, of course.

Because I think on its face, that's how I react to this.

Right? He's running for president of the United States. They're trying to put him out of business.

Throw him in prison.

Take him off the ballots.

It's so blatantly obvious, on the surface. That that's how I translate it.

GLENN: The only thing he hasn't been hit with is, you know.

Like, here. Have some uranium pie.

STU: Right. That's true.

GLENN: The only thing, is he's not been hit with an umbrella, or the little pin at the end of it. Like the CIA.

STU: That's about it. That's it.

And so I think on its surface, it's easy to just look at this. The details of this one, in particular, are so egregious.

First of all, it's not like, a -- this number that they came up with. They just came up with like an algorithm that they built to come up with this number.

And it's like, well, we think, if he didn't defraud these banks, then the banks would have made more money.

Now, of course, the banks could have gone to have, and requested a higher interest rate. Which they didn't do.

GLENN: Because they found him a good risk. Because they've done business with him before.

STU: Before. And they all knew he had lots of money. And they all knew he had a successful business.

They all knew he would pay back the loans. They all knew this would occur.

So they went down this road. Now, of course, their case in New York. Hey, you defaulted all these banks. Screwed all these banks out of money.

You have to pay $350 million to us.

GLENN: Right.

STU: The state of New York.

GLENN: Because the banks --

STU: The banks get none of this.

GLENN: They didn't file this.

There was no complaint. None.

STU: Even if you think there was no complaint.

If you're saying, they were defrauded. You would think, they would get the money.

But no. It goes directly to the state of New York. Which is just another comical layer to this.

But listen to this breakdown of this particular rule. This law. And how it's been used, in the past.

Because as you point out. There's no victims here. No one is coming.

No bank is like, hey. By the way, he lied about this. It didn't work out for us.

GLENN: In fact, the banks testified on his behalf. Saying, there was no victim.

We knew this. We take that into account with everybody we loan.

That's why we have a whole division that goes out, and does the estimates for us.

We know. We're not stupid.

STU: Right. So this law has been around for 70 years.

And it is -- there is multiple facets of this.

There's the big fine.

Which is kind of the headline.

Also, the fact that they might take his business away.

They're saying his kids can't run the business anymore.

They're trying to turn this into essentially a death penalty for this company.

GLENN: Yes, they are.

So it is the only big business. That was threatened with a shutdown without showing obvious victims or majors losses in 70 years.

The only one. Okay?

The AP went the lie 150 cases, since New York's repeated fraud statute was passed in 1956.

And it showed that nearly every previous time, a company was taken away. Victims and losses were key factors.

You would think, right?

Customers lose money, because they bought defective products or never received services ordered. Leaving them cheated and angry.

What's more, businesses were taken over, almost always as a last resort to stop a fraud in progress, to protect potential victims.

Let's look back at this now, because there is one case where they try to take a company. Which is what they're threatening here, with the Trump Corporation. The Trump Corporation.

GLENN: Hang on.

Do we have that clip of -- of the AGs saying that they will take it? Here it is. Listen.

VOICE: Four days after a judge ordered Donald Trump to pay $355 million for a decade of fraud.

New York attorney general, Letitia James says, she's prepared to do everything she can, to make sure the former president pays his fine. Including, she told us, seizing the businesses that have his name.

VOICE: If he does not have funds to pay off the judgment, then we will seek, you know, judgment enforcement mechanisms in court. And we will ask the judge to seize his assets.

STU: I love the -- she's so dramatic. It's hilarious.

GLENN: I know. I know. Think of that. You're doing business in this morning.

STU: Oh, I would get out of there. You have to get out of there.

GLENN: Get out of there. And honestly, if you live in New York, honestly, you have a house in New York, you're living in New York. You're just like, yeah. Well, we don't want to give up on New York.

Get the hell out of New York.

And I know a lot of people that say, well, I can't. Because my whole family is here.

Get out, of New York.

If they're doing this kind of stuff to him, there is no rule of law in New York.

Okay?

STU: It's always been liberal, right? This is totally different.

It's like the difference between the New York Times.

We were talking about this the other day. Where the New York Times is always liberal.

Then there was, hey, this is an op-ed written by a US senator.

And the op-ed guy gets fired for just letting it be printed.

GLENN: Right.

STU: The crazy people on the left. The AOC's have taken over, places in the media.

And places like this in New York.

This is what it is thousand. So there's been one case. One. One in the entire seven years. Where they did this.

Where they shut down a company, that had no obvious victims.

The case was 1972.

And it was a company, relatively small company, that was writing term papers, for college students. Okay.

So I want to write my paper.

GLENN: I want to break out in God bless America.

STU: Capitalism is pretty impressive. Apparently, this didn't go over that well.

What they said, there were no obvious victims here. The people bought the term papers. They didn't want to write them. They got the term papers. They said, they were defrauding the education system.

GLENN: Which they were.

STU: This is the one time. And it's a small tiny company. Let me give you the other times they've done this.

Tell me if any of these sound like, hey, I have a good interest rate, on a loan I paid back.

Number one, a breast cancer nonprofit was shut down a dozen years ago. For using nearly all its $9 million in donations to pay for director's salaries, perks, and other expenses, instead of funding free mammograms. Okay.

So they told everyone, donate money for free. Mammograms. And they just took all the money for themselves.

That's number one. Number two, a private equity timber.

Faking big investment success, was closed down after stealing millions of dollars from thousands of investors.

Okay?

You can see.

GLENN: Yeah. Got it. But on both of those so far, you have hundreds of thousands of people, you know, I'm sure. That gave -- they're all victims.

They gave their money.

STU: Yeah. And they didn't get the thing that they want.

GLENN: They didn't get the thing they were promised. You have all these people going to the AG. Saying, hey, this is a real problem here. This has to stop. Not here.

GLENN: Not here.

STU: Another one. Mental health facility, shuttered for looting $4 million from public funds, while neglecting patients.

GLENN: Okay. Kind of a big one.

STU: Pretty clear.

An auto lender that allegedly charged hidden interest rates, got to stay in business last year if it paid a fine and didn't commit fraud in the future.

So here's one they didn't shut down.

They actually let them go on.

They're going after Trump in all of this. In this one, they're like, oh. Sure, they're hidden fees.

They're not telling you about them.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: A judge requested.

A judge refused to request to shut down a river rafting company in 2011.

After a customer drowned, and the attorney general showed it was repeatedly using unlicensed guides, or none at all.

Instead, he ordered only a 50,000-dollar bond and cleanup -- for him to clean up his act.

The company is still being run today, under a different name by the same family. Someone died.

GLENN: We have thousands of victims.

And in this case, somebody who is dead.

STU: Is dead!

GLENN: Dead!

STU: They're like, you guys can stay open -- and then this one is my favorite one. A judge in 2001.

Declined to appoint a receiver, to take over a porn site, despite millions of dollars of illegal credit card charges to hundreds of customers.

Who thought they were getting a free tour.

Now, look, you're -- you want to get the free -- you want to know what you're subscribing for, Glenn. Before you just pulled the trigger on that. So you put your credit card information into a porn site, I think some of these victims need some life changes to be made here.

But they put their credit card into a porn site. Expecting a free tour.

They instead, get charged and charged and charged and charged.

In fact, once the owners of the site were caught, they attempted to move their money overseas, to avoid any penalty.

Still, the judge said, appointing a receiver was an extraordinary remedy!

That should be used sparingly, and that a preliminary injunction was good enough.

Only after all that happened, it they find out, the people running the porn site, were the Gambino crime family.
(laughter)
I kid you not. The Gambino crime family.

GLENN: And they didn't go into receivership.

STU: So there you go. Think about that.

I mean, it's so obvious, what they're doing. Latitia james talked about it when she ran.

Her goal was to take this one individual out.

And the New York -- the voters of New York, said, good.

Go do it.

And now she's doing it.

GLENN: Okay. If you are -- if you have business in in New York, if you're in New York, I'm just telling you. You have to do what you have to do.

There's no way, I would keep my business in New York.

There is no rule of law now. You know it on the streets. But there is no rule of law. If they can get away with this. They can do anything to you.
