THIS is how we can END the ‘victimhood’ RUINING America

America has a victimhood problem. And that victim mentality has helped to create a ‘vacuum at the heart of American souls,’ says Vivek Ramaswamy, author of ‘Nation of Victims.’ But, thankfully, Ramaswamy believes he has the answer. He explains to Glenn how rejuvenating Americans' ‘unapologetic pursuit of excellence’ can help to create a new national identity that leaves victimhood far behind…

GLENN: There is a must-read book, that has just come out called nation of victims. Identity politics. The death of merit and the path back to excellence. It's out today.

Vivek Ramaswamy is the author, and he joins me now.

Vivek, first question. And don't hate me for this, if I've had it wrong the whole time. I am the worst on names. The worst. And every time I see you on a show, you never correct anybody. And they're always pronouncing your name a different way.

Am I getting it wrong, and you're just being polite? Or is Vivek the way you say your name?

VIVEK: Vivek is right. Ramaswamy. Ramaswamy.

GLENN: Ramaswamy. Ramaswamy.

VIVEK: Right. Exactly. You know, there's TV hits, you usually get three to four minutes. I prefer to talk about content. Since you asked, I love it.

GLENN: Yeah. So, Vivek, out of respect for you, because I'm watching it. And I'm so paranoid, I always get things wrong on names. Always. Like my wife, I would screw up her name. I just wanted to make sure. Okay. So nations -- nation of victims is out.

And you're known at least on this program, as somebody who is very into ESG. You know, very -- against it. You are doing everything you can, to bring back merit. This book does not really deal with ESG or anything like that. This is the answer in our own lives. Would you agree?

VIVEK: That's right, Glenn. I would agree. I think there are two sides to this equation. Right? Even if you think about the kind of stuff we usually talk about in this program. The kind of stuff I'm working on, in the private sector. Yes. That is about corporate meddling in our culture. It is about the use of corporate power to advance one-sided progressive agendas. But it takes two to tango. What do I mean by that? It also takes a population, and a consumer base, that is willing to buy those narratives, and use that to actually be moved by it. So what this book is about is the broader question. Why is it that consumers are so hungry for a cause, and purpose, and meaning and identity. That they fall for these victim narratives. That companies and other cynical actors to sell them. That's what this book is about. And the case that I make in this book is that we've fallen into a moment in our history, where we see hardship as the same thing as victimhood.

Well, guess what, my thesis is that hardship is not the same thing as victimhood. Hardship is part of what teaches who we are, both as individuals and as a people.

And I think the black hole, at the vacuum of Americans. And the vacuum of the heart of the American soul right now, is our absence of a shared national identity. And the case I make in this book, is that we can fill that vacuum, with a shared national identity, based on the unapologetic pursuit of excellence. Through our system of free market capitalism. And as individuals who are free agents in the world. Regardless of the color of our skin. Or where our parents came from. That's why I wrote this book.

GLENN: So where do you think the big turning -- because I think it was 2008. Where the bailout happened. We're now doing all of that. And it's the end of personal responsibility for corporations.

VIVEK: It really was. It was a different level of responsibility at every level of society. So I think 2008 was a big turning point for a lot of reasons. What happened in 2008? We had the 2008 financial crisis. We had the bailouts. We had no accountability for a lot of financial institutions, that took risk at the public -- at the public -- when times were good, they got paid. When times were bad, the public had to bail them out. That was also the birth of the identity politic wing of the new left. It was Barack Obama elected as the first black president of the United State, a lot of victimhood narratives that went with that. We're also in the thick of the greatest intergenerational wealth transfer in human history. From the Baby Boomer generation to my generation of millennials and Gen Z. And I think that creates a new victimhood culture. And a culture of entitlement as well.

Just there were a lot of things around the turn of the last decade. There were a lot of factors in our culture that conspired to create this new culture of victimhood. And one of the things I -- one of the things I describe in the book, is also the rise of a laziness culture. Even in our work. But in our culture more broadly. And one of the things I say in the book, is that victimhood fits laziness like a glove. In that people today, who are lazy, and that don't want to work. Construe that as not just their own sloth. Which is one of the human vices.

But also a narrative of the grand fight of the oppression of capitalism. The oppression of modernity, the colonialism of capitalism. This is the kinds of things you hear, as part of the great resignation in the pandemic, started back in the post 2008 era. So I think it was a combination of a new laziness culture of entitlement, that came from my generation being on the receiving end of this large inter-generational wealth transfer.

But combined with these victimhood narratives, this justified that laziness with a moral veneer.

That is part of what led to us now having a shared national identity based on victimhood. We're a nation of victims. And I think the case I made, we need to graduate from that.

You talk about Plato's ideal society. And you talk about it, because you say, that's how we find the ideal citizen.

What is the ideal citizen in 2022?

VIVEK: In America, this is the question of our hour, okay. So I think there are two parts to what it means to be Americans. And I think each of us has some of this in our heart. On the one hand, we all want to be an individual, who is able to pursue our own individualistic dreams through the system of free market capitalism. That's what we think of as the American dream.

I have that impulse. You have that impulse. Most of the listeners in this program, share that feeling too. That's half the story. That's what I call the pursuit of excellence. The unapologetic pursuit of excellence. But I think there's another half of the story too, Glenn. I think many of us on the right, have missed for years. Which is also our hunger to be part of a nation, that is greater than the sum of its parts. A collective whole as citizens. And that's the side of our identity as individuals, that really, I think revolves around also the revival of civic duty. One of the chapters of the book is entitled A Theory of Duty. It's a play on John Rawls' A Theory of Justice, which was the North Star of the left, for much of the late 20th century.

I offer what I call A Theory of Duty, which talks about the revival of a civic duty. And the case I make, is it's not at odds with liberty, to have a civic duty. Our civic duty as citizens is different than the freedoms we want to have, in all of the spheres of our life, including economically. And I think it's one of the things that conservatives sometimes get wrong. We get wrong. In our -- in our obsession. We just talked about freedom. And believe me, I'm ten out of the scale of ten on that discussion. We miss the fact, that we have civic duties as citizens, that actually gives us greater fortitude to pursue our freedoms through the system of free market capitalism, through our pursuit of excellence as individuals, which is not the philosophy at the heart of this book, actually.

GLENN: I'm old enough, that in high school, you couldn't graduate without having a class called rights and responsibilities. And we have forgotten the responsibility part. And that is, like you say, huge.

But, you know, I learned something, when I lived in New York City.

When I moved to New York City, I was always a guy, who if there was garbage on the street. I would pick it up and throw it in the garbage can. And it was just ingrained in me. I grew up in a smaller town. And after about two years of living in New York, there was garbage at the front of my building, at sixth avenue. And it was just this newspaper. It was just blowing everywhere. And my first thought was, how much money do I have to pay this stupid city, for them to keep it clean?

And I stopped in my own tracks, and I thought, oh, my gosh. I've turned into one of them!

VIVEK: Well, that's really honest of you, Glenn. To talk about. Look in the mirror that way. That's something more of us ought to do. That's before we point the finger outward, let's take a mirror and look within. It's funny, I'm talking to you from a car in New York City right now, where I'm literally seeing bottles lining the street on the left hand side of my car, without somebody stepping down to pick it up.

And I think that idea of civic duty is something that -- I could call out the liberal side of this. I have been for years. I do a little bit of that in the book as well. But I think it's a place for the conservative movement to look internally and say, all right. Look, we can criticize the poison that fills the vacuum, all we want.

At the end of the day, we're not rising to the occasion. If we don't fill that vacuum with something more meaningful, something more rich, that dilutes the poison.

GLENN: So help me out.

Because, Vivek, I think -- and I know religion plays a big part in religion and in your life. The right would say, we do our civic duty. We're much more charitable. We work through our churches. I know people who go on missions all the time. I mean, we do do our civic duty. That's what they would say.

VIVEK: I think we need more than that. I think there's definite -- that's why -- that's why I'm more interested in speaking to the conservative movement than I am to the left. Because I think that there's a greater chance of filling that national vacuum, and we have to pick which political party or which political movement is going to do it. I'm more optimistic about the conservative movement.

That's why I'm preaching to that choir, rather than the other one. Because I think that's our best chance of success.

I think we need to revive that though. And I think there's one of two directions, for the future of the conservative movement. Either one that wallows in a new version of victimhood, in response to left-wing victimhood.

Which I've been -- by the way, a big critic of. And a lot of what I'm saying is a self-reflection, Glenn. I've spent the last two years criticizing a lot of woke victimhood culture. Left-wing victimhood culture. But one of the things I've learned, introspective for myself.

Is how much -- and we're moving the needle a little bit, by putting the spotlight on the problem. If we want to move the needle in a big way. We won't have a generation left, to save the identity of this country.

And if we're going to do it, it's not going to come by just pointing our finger at all the hypocrisies of the other side. Because that would take all of our time. We would have no time left, and time would run out, before we would be able to save our national identity. We need to fill the void of national identity with something else.

And what I offer in this book is two reasons for that. One is the revival of the shared pursuit of excellence. That's part of what I'm working on in the private sector. In the board of directors at Chevron, last week. Doing what I'm doing at strive. I'm trying to do that through the private sector.

That's still only half the story, though.

And I think that as citizens, we also need to revive our sense of civic duty, to start talking about that more. You know, I think it's a provocative idea, I offered in my last book. I talk about it in this one too, of even thinking about weaving civic service, into education. That's something that makes conservatives, a lot of Libertarian conservatives, even myself, ten years ago, would have recoiled at that idea. That feels like, it's an infringement on our liberty. Well, what I say, is, first of all, if you start at a young enough age, we accept that children, under the age of 18 or 16, are not yet free agents in the world. We have to create those citizens. And weaving the idea of service. Of identity as a citizen in your country, is part of what allows you to actually be an unapologetic capitalist. An unapologetic free agent, once you do enter that free world.

And part of that problem, I think, is we have an entire generation. My generation, that never learned how to do actual service. Nor how to pursue their own self-interests in their own right, by co-mingling the two. We never learn how to actually do either one on its own.

So I think it will actually create a greater generation of capitalists. A greater generation of free individualist agents in the world, if we also revive this idea, of living out our civic duties. And I think you're right. A lot of conservatives in their private lives do that. I think we need to make that as part of a North Star of what it means to America.

GLENN: I think you're seeing that now, with the takeover of the school boards, and you know the local city councils, et cetera.

I mean, conservatives. You know, they were busy keeping their nose to their business. And down to the grindstone. And et cetera, et cetera. And just thought. Oh, this is all being taken care of.

It was being taken care of. Just not in the way we appreciate.

VIVEK: Exactly. And one of the things I like to do, Glenn. Let's take a step back from the present. Let's take a walk through history. One of the things I do in the book. I talk a lot about a post-Civil War history and the Reconstruction Era. But one of the areas of history I go to is Roman history. One of the things I reminded myself of. You know, you hear a lot of analogies today, between the fall of the American experiment. And the fall of Rome. Well, guess what, there was no one rise or one fall of Rome. There were many rises, and many falls.

And it -- you know what, I don't think we're done with this American experiment quite yet either. There were many rises and many falls of Rome. There were many rises and many falls with this great country, and this great experiment as well.

And I tell the story of, it's interesting, I hadn't studied this since high school. Emperor Septimius Severus, he was known as the black Emperor. Okay. That's how I studied him in high school at least. One of the things I learned doing the research of this book. He only got that name, the black Emperor. In the last few decades. As he was redescribed in modern American history. There was a TV series that highlighted the story of the first black man to walk on England's soil came not as a slave, but as a conqueror. And then they made a whole narrative around it. Well, the funny thing is, if you go back to the Roman era, people could see that he had dark skin. It was no different than someone having dark eyes or dark hair.

The thing they actually cared about were, were you a Roman citizen? Or were you not?

Were you a member of this nation, or were you not?

That's how they actually saw him. And in a certain sense, we've created our vision, even in history. He's the black emperor we need. Not the black emperor he was. That was never how the Romans saw him. And it just shows you how anachronistically we even view history. That if we're able to take off the Googles of the present. The filters of the present. And actually even take ourselves out of the present, it suddenly becomes politically less controversial. We're able to talk about these ideas in ways that are 1,000 years removed. But then you come back to the present and you see what a strange world it is that you live in.

GLENN: Yep. Yep.

VIVEK: And I think that's one of the reasons why I felt compelled to write this book. It's not for everybody. But if you're a lover of history, if you're interested in potentially the parallels between Roman history and modern American history, how we got here, dating back to the post Civil War.

Reconstruction Era, where victimhood culture began, and I think how we were able to translate that into the victim culture that we see today.

You know, for those who actually enjoy that walk through history, that's who this book was intended for, in contrast to Woke Inc. my last book, which was more about current events and the current era. This is a walk through history, that gives us hopefully a different view of the present.

GLENN: Yeah. Well, you've really targeted the wrong audience for that.

VIVEK: I don't know about that. I don't know about that.

GLENN: This audience -- you're speaking their language. It's great. It's called a nation of victims. And it's written by Vivek Ramaswamy.

And we appreciate everything that you do, Vivek. Thank you so much. God bless.

You bet. Nation of victims. A must-read. All right. Back in just a second.

3 examples of EXACTLY why CBDCs are a THREAT to your freedom

3 examples of EXACTLY why CBDCs are a THREAT to your freedom

Despite the popularity of private monetary systems like Bitcoin and payment systems like Venmo, governments around the world are still pushing for the creation of "central bank digital currencies" (CBDCs). But what are these currencies and what would they mean for societies? Glenn plays 3 clips from officials around the globe who have explained exactly why CBDCs — which ARE coming — are "imprisonment dressed up as freedom."


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: So I just saw that Bitcoin is down, what $537 today?

STU: Panic!

GLENN: Yeah. I know. Panic. It is incredibly -- it's almost up to 40,000 again. It's like 38 or $37,000 now per Bitcoin.

STU: Legitimately incredible.

Considering, there's been a slew of bad news over the past year. People may know Sam Bankman-Fried. There's a big finance thing that happened last week.

GLENN: But you also have the government saying, we're never going to do that. We're going to introduce our own fed coin.

STU: Yeah. Elizabeth Warren, is not on board.

So if Elizabeth Warren is on board, should you be?

I mean, shouldn't you agree with whatever Elizabeth Warren says.

GLENN: She's not on board for --

STU: She's not a big fan of Bitcoin. I'm sure she would be fine with that.

But does not want Bitcoin.

This is decentralized. They don't have control of it.

So, of course, people don't like it. But it is interesting to see. This is a big part of what the Argentinian, the guy Milei has done there.

He's a big Bitcoin guy.

You know, there's --

GLENN: I would love to see.

STU: A lot of the candidates are pretty good on this topic as well.

Including, even, I would have to say, RFK Jr is good on this. I'm not a fan of.

Ramaswamy is big on this.

DeSantis has been really good on the Central Bank Digital Currency.

People are like, why is he even talking about this a year ago is if

Well, I think we've seen how important it is.

GLENN: Let me show you. Because I want to put together a show next year on CBDC. And show what it really is.

Let me just show you a couple of things that I've found here recently.

Cut 11. This is a Dutch political commentator. On Central Bank Digital Currencies.

Because this is happening all over the Western world. Listen.

VOICE: If we accept the fact that a QR code grants us access to society, what makes you think, that they won't link that to anything else except for your vaccination status?

What if that green screen on your phone, that grants you access to society, turns red the moment you take a flight. Or you eat meat too much. Or you didn't recycle your plastic yesterday? How dare you.

What if that green screen on your phone, that is linked to your digital wallet. That's filled with nothing more, but -- I'm going to say it.

Central Bank Digital Currencies.

Will turn red, the moment you say, something the government classifies as hate speech.

What if they can turn off your life, at the push of one button.

If they can do it to China, they can do it here.

Ladies and gentlemen, freedom that is limited to those who do and say exactly what the government wants to do and say, is no freedom.

It's imprisonment, disguised as freedom.

And we need to see it for what it is. If we want to turn this around, that is.

We need to wake up. We need to speak up.

We need to say no. Draw a line. And disobey these laws.

GLENN: Now, listen in Australia, here's a politician in Australia, warning the Australians about Central Bank Digital Currencies.
Cut 50.

VOICE: Every month, the Trusted Digital Identity Bill represents a watershed moment in Australian history. We stand at the divide between a free personal enterprise future and a digital surveillance age.

If nothing is done to stop this bill, government will sit in the middle of every interaction Australia has had with each other and with the world.

And achieves this in the same way that China does.

By creating a digital identity, that forms a central part of a person's life. You can call it a license to live.

What began with perfect contact tracing, vaccine passports, and QR check-ins will soon be formalized by an inescapable digital identity.

It signals the complete end of consumer privacy, the end of citizen enormity, and the beginning of a Big Brother digital age that treats the people of Australia as products rather than free human beings.

The government intends to build a complete digital record of every Australian, to be shared and used.

Our medical history. Our shopping preferences. Who we associate with.

Whether our choices are really so-called green. Social Security. Veteran services.

Travel records. Website viewing. Employment data. And social media comments.

Everything will go on the record, and be available to any large corporation that can pay for access.

GLENN: Now, let me give you one from the United States.

This is a member of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve. This is the president of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank.

This is what he says about CBDC's. Central Bank Digital Currencies.

Do you think that that is something you should be looking into seriously? And to what degree should you be looking into it seriously?

What are your thoughts on CBDC?

VOICE: My colleagues at the Federal Reserve may have talked about it. We are examining it.

I'll tell you, my personal bias is I'm pretty skeptical. I keep asking anybody, anybody, at the fed. Or outside the fed. To explain to me, what problem this is solving.

I can send anybody in this room, $5 with Venmo right now. No, seriously. So what is it that a CBDC can do, that Venmo can't do?

And all I get is a bunch of hand waving. Like, well, maybe it's better for financial inclusion. Maybe, it's better for cross-border -- maybe. Is there any evidence that it is?

And, you know, they say, well, what about China?

China is doing it. Well, I can see why China would do it. If they want to monitor every one of your transactions, you can do that with the Central Bank Digital Currency. You can't do that with Venmo.

If you want to impose negative interest rates, you can do that with the Central Bank Digital Currency. You can't do that with Venmo. And if you want to directly tax customer accounts. You can do that with the Central Bank Digital Currency. You can't do that with Venmo.

I get why China would be interested. Why would the American people be for that?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: So this kind of goes into what I'm talking about tonight, on TV. Gaslighting. Do you know what that term even means?

STU: Yeah. I did. I didn't for a long time. But I do now.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Mainly because so many people say it, I made myself look it up. And I was like, what does this even mean? I don't even understand it. And it is. I mean, it is -- it is really -- it seemingly is really going on.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

I'm going to prove it to you tonight.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: First of all, I'm starting this show tonight, going back to the 1940s, and showing you where, you're being gas lit. They're gaslighting you. Where that term came from. Where that went.

It's important context. Because the polls are in.

The two issues Americans are most concerned about right now. Number one, the economy. Number two, immigration.

And the gaslighting on these two issues from the Biden administration and the media, are -- it's crazy.

It is crazy town. Bonkers. We're being lied to about the state of the economy. We're being lied to, about what's happening at the border.

Tonight, I will show you the real numbers. And they are a little shocking.

They're a little shocking.

Don't miss tonight's Wednesday night special. 9:00 p.m. Eastern on Blaze TV.

9:30 on my Eastern channel.

Are we still running TheBlaze TV cyber, that was just on Monday?

We'll see you tonight, at 9:00 p.m.

EXPOSED: MASSIVE government, military, media campaign to CENSOR YOU

EXPOSED: MASSIVE government, military, media campaign to CENSOR YOU

Journalist Michael Shellenberger has unveiled a new trove of documents that he says dwarf the Twitter Files in scale and importance. The Cyber Threat Intelligence League (CTIL) Files, which were leaked by a whistleblower, detail "the birth of the anti-disinformation sector," which includes government, U.S. and U.K. military contractors, and intelligence agencies, the media, and "sock puppet accounts." And it reveals what many have already assumed: Since the U.S. government can't legally censor Americans' free speech, it has used public-private partnerships to do so — and also to wage propaganda campaigns against people who disagree. Glenn reviews the shocking findings and explains what this means for you: "I think we have the Stasi, America." This doesn't just put freedom at risk, Glenn warns. "This is about the loss of your FREE WILL."


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: All right. Let me -- let me start with this, first.

Moderna, now is being revealed from TheBlaze.

Moderna is monitoring celebrities for spreading anti-vaccine beliefs.

Journalists now have revealed, that the biotechnology company, hired a former FBI analyst to head its disinformation department tasked with compiling internal reports about celebrities who criticize the COVID-19 vaccine from Moderna.

If they spoke out against the vaccine mandates or shared any anti-vaccine sentiments, the journalist noted that this FBI agent is one of the many former law enforcement agencies, working for Moderna.

The department reports are color-coded and ranked from low risk to high risk, based on how problematic their narratives are to vaccine confidence.

Low risk reports don't currently warrant any action, according to their own Moderna documents.

When a response is required, the company's team will notify appropriate stakeholders with recommendations. Notice the word stakeholders. That is ESG.

We're all in this together. We all have a role to play. We're all stakeholders in this.

Celebrities that made Moderna's high-risk list include Russell Brand, Elon Musk, and Novak. How do you say his name -- the tennis player?

Djokovic. Yeah. It noted that Djokovic was such a problem, because he became an anti-vaccine hero.

Moderna's report said that the optics --

STU: Why with -- he decided he didn't want to take the vaccine. I don't -- it wasn't like he was RFK Jr out on every show talking go. He just wanted to play tennis.

GLENN: I know. While he wasn't --

STU: While he made a choice they didn't like, he wasn't an activist, I would say. He was just saying like, this is what I want to do. If people want to do the opposite, go ahead.

GLENN: You can't have that opinion. Okay?

STU: That's crazy. Crazy.

GLENN: So this is in the Moderna report now, that's just come out. The optics of Djokovic, whose vaccine opposition barred him from competing in the U.S. Open, returning to and winning the Moderna sponsored competition bolsters anti-vax claims, that vaccines and mandates are unnecessary.

He was high risk. So what does that mean?

What does that mean?

Let me give you another quick story here.
New study of big tech censorship, claims online companies such as Google, X, and Meta have censored President Biden's opponents who are running for the Oval Office 162 times.

Topping the list is Vivek Ramaswamy and Robert Kennedy Jr. Third on the list was Nikki Haley, followed by Larry Elder, and then Donald Trump. Here's another story for you.

You've heard all of the stories about how evil Donald Trump is, because he was -- he was going to these banks. And overstating his worth, and he was conning -- you remember. Predatory lenders. Remember that?

This time, the borrower, was predatory against the lender.

That's their case. However, called to the stand yesterday, was Deutsche Bank executive. That this whole thing revolves around. This is the guy who did the loan, for Deutsche Bank.

And they were all -- did he not overstate?

Did he not overstate?

The guy said, yeah. It was atypical. But not entirely unusual for a client to do that.

And we -- we approved the loan, because we expected it to generate a profit, based on his history of successful developments.

So we took what he wrote, we reevaluated.

STU: Of course.

GLENN: We -- we said, he's not worth that. He's worth about half of that.


And then we gave him a loan based on that. There's no victim here. There's no victim here.

So how is this happening? How is this happening?

How is it half the country is convinced this guy is just an evil Nazi?

Michael Shellenberger, a whistle-blower has come forward, with explosive new trove of documents.

Rivalling or exceeding the Twitter files and Facebook files, in scale or importance.

They described the activities of an anti-disinformation group, called the cyber threat intelligence league. I bet they even wear capes.

It's the CTIL. Cyber Threat Intelligence League. And it started as a volunteer project of data science and scientists, and defense and intelligence veterans.

We just want to do good. We're the justice league. And we're seeing what's going on. And we're going to volunteer our time.

Hmm. That's amazing. Unfortunately, it appears that they have been absorbed in multiple official projects, including federal government Department of Homeland Security.

CTI League documents offer a missing link answer to key questions, not addressed in the Twitter files and Facebook files. Combined, they offer a comprehensive picture of the birth of the anti-disinformation sector. Or what we have called the censorship industrial complex. Paragraph according to Michael Shellenberger whistle-blower documents describe everything from the genesis of modern digital censorship programs. To the role of the military, and intelligence agencies.

Partnerships with civil society organizations.

And commercial media.

And the use of sock puppet accounts and other offensive techniques.

In one document, they explained that, while such activities overseas are typically done by the CIA and NSA, and the Department of Defense, censorship efforts against Americans, have to be done using a public/private partnership.

Again, ESG stakeholders. Because the government, and I'm quoting from the document, doesn't have the legal authority.

So this -- this arm now, went out and said, look, we can't do this.

How can we do this?

The whistle-blower alleges, in a trove of documents, that a leader of CTI League. A former British intelligence analyst, was in the room at the Obama White House, in 2017.

When she received the instructions to create a counter-disinformation project to stop a repeat of 2016.

Huh. A network now of over 100 government agencies. And nongovernmental organizations. Worked together to hurt censorship by social media platforms. And spread propaganda about disfavored individuals, topics, and whole narratives.

So this is out in our show prep today. If you haven't -- if you don't get my newsletter every day, you should sign up for it, it's free. You'll get it every day. There's story in there, that you just -- you don't hear about. Because nobody in the mainstream is talking about them.

This one is a very long story. But I'm telling you, it will make your hair fall out. Because it's not just about going to Facebook and -- and Google and saying, hey. Can you guys maybe, you know, throttle that person back a little bit?

Because they're -- they're doing -- they're saying some things that aren't so nice.

No, no, no. They're not only doing that. But then, they have disinformation puppets. And disinformation operatives, that will go out and spread disinformation about that individual.

That way, they can go to Facebook and everywhere else. And say, look at who this guy really is.

You want to be associated with him?

Look at what they're saying about him online. Not only that, but then they take that information to the banks. To get the bank to debank that person.

I think we have the Stasi, America.

Now, the -- the thing about this is: This is happening. This story is what was happening in 2019.


This is all about the pandemic.

And what they were doing, and can you imagine what they are doing today?

And the better AI gets, the better you can collate all of the information, tie it to certain individuals.

You can create anything you want. You can get people to do anything you want.

We're not talking about the loss of freedom here. Listen to me carefully. This is something that I have been reading about, and talking about for 20 years.

It wasn't relative to people. They couldn't understand it.

And so I -- I have only talked about it a few times. Because it was all just -- it was a concept, that this is going to get so bad, that.

I'm telling you, it's here now. Listen carefully.

This is not about your loss of freedom. This is about the loss of your free will.

What we as individuals were given by God, not just rights. Those rights are protected.

The government is supposed to protect those rights. We do have rights. We have responsibilities. Some of us don't exercise our responsibility, and most of us don't even understand our rights.

But all of that is a subset of free will. You can go out. You can investigate. You have an idea.

You go, and you create your own path.

What this organization is doing. What these people are doing. And if Congress does not stop them, we lose our free will.

These people must go to jail.

What they're doing, is they can manipulate you. Without you even knowing it.

You've seen it before with Google, and the way they stack things.

Now you have the Western governments. Five eyes.

That's all five of the big Western countries.

Called five eyes.

The biggest intelligence agencies. They're all involved in this.

And they're doing it to each other's citizens. We're probably doing it to England. And England is doing it to us.

But we're doing the same thing. And it is shaping you in a way that you can't even record. You will never recognize.

By 2030, by 2030, I guarantee you, if this stuff isn't stopped, you won't know whose idea it was.

You will think it was your idea, to do X, Y, or Z.

To live X, Y, or Z. To buy X, Y, or Z. To go, to speak.

To say X, Y, or Z. You you will think it was your idea, and it will not be.

This has been debated for 25 years. And nobody paid attention to it. And I'm a weirdo. And I paid attention to it.

Because I didn't understand it at first. I was like, loss of free will. How could you possibly lose?

This is 1995 or 2000. How can you possibly lose free will?

You lose it, because you don't -- you don't recognize what is actually shaping you, as an individual.

This is not advertisement.

This is personal propaganda, geared directly at you as an individual.

So we're not talking about the loss of freedom.

We're talking about the reason you are here, as a human being.

God gave you free will.

Jesus came, because we have free will. And we will make the wrong decisions, so he offers us salvation.

We are talking about the literal schemes of the devil. The schemes of Satan, taking away your free will.

I know I'm on a list. I know -- I think we've lost 95 percent of our reach on Facebook, in the last year. How is that possible?

Everything we do, that's independent, is growing like crazy. We're having the biggest year of my career, this year.

And my Facebook is down 90, 95 percent?

How is that happening? They're shaping you, and keeping voices that they don't want you to hear.

Be aware. Know that this is now being done, at a governmental level, in the entire West.

Is it TOO LATE to escape the leftist plan for global CHAOS?

Is it TOO LATE to escape the leftist plan for global CHAOS?

Leftists around the globe have been pushing us closer and closer to chaos, seemingly in line with the CIA's 5 steps to revolution. Glenn reviews the steps and asks, which one are we on? But while governments around the world seem to be spiraling toward authoritarianism, Glenn explains why he's shocked to see the election of anarcho-capitalist Javier Milei in Argentina. While he looks and sounds unhinged, he's promising to SHRINK the government, not expand it. "That's what makes him less scary," Glenn says. So, are people starting to take a stand against big government and the 5 steps to revolution?


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: These are the five steps, for revolution. It's -- you know, he accurately said in the clip I played for you a minute ago. The CIA developed this.

And it was four revolutions. Green and Colour Revolutions. And it's really easy. You have to discredit the press. Now, once you advertise credit the press, you also have to discredit intelligentsia. You have to -- you have to discredit all the experts. Well, they've done both of these, themselves.

Okay? And I don't think that it is a coincidence. That it works out. Everything that the left does, doesn't it always seem to be a win-win for them?

Whether it works. Whether it doesn't. They always seems to win. It always works in their favor.

So they've discredited the press.

They've discredited the experts.

How easy would it be to regain the trust of our doctors and our -- our scientists, if they would just come out and say, yeah. We really blew it here.

And we're finding the people responsible for it.

We know it was Fauci.

Why wouldn't you do that?

Because they want experts to continue to be discredited.

By the average.

So that way, when there's chaos on the street, do you trust the police?

Do you trust the FBI?

Do you trust the medical association?

Do you trust the media?

Who is coming for you? If there's real trouble, who is coming. Did you see the video of the guy in the streets of New York? He was a regular guy, standing up in the streets of New York. The press was asking him questions about, you know, why are you standing up against the letting people across the border.

And he looked at the person. The reporter.

And then he looked at the crowd, and he said, guys, it's up to us.

No one is coming to save our city.

No one is coming to save our state or our Constitution. No one is coming. The news is not telling you the truth. The politicians are part of it. The politicians are the ones doing it to us!

We have to stand up. So that way, if everything is discredited, you feel like, you have to stand up. And then things get even more out of control, because somebody does something stupid. Or something is set up to make it look like, that other side is doing something.

And they can crack down. Everybody cries out for order.

Look at what's happening. In the news today, I was reading a couple of stories.

Chicago area high school provides segregated classes for black and Hispanic students.

Now, any time, in modern history, we would know that's racist.

You can't do that.

What are you doing?

What is it doing?

It is creating hostilities between races. It's creating separate classes.

Except, it's just reversed.

What is that going to do? Did you see there was another story -- where was this one? Maybe New York. Where the students, black and Hispanics, are no longer going to be held to that white standard of education. Now, what does that mean? You're going to lower the standards? Really? That's a white thing. Because I know a lot of dummy white people. What does that do? That just makes you into a slave. If you have poor education. And you're not held to a higher standard, what do you think is going to happen to our society? More than 2500 police officers in New York City, have quit this year. New York City is also a place where -- what was it? 2 billion -- I can't find it now. But the amount of money. I think it's $2.4 billion. That has been lost this year, in theft! In theft!

Businesses are closing. They can't handle the amount of theft. What does that make you do? Makes you cry out for somebody to make it stop. Now, this is the way they're trying to make Argentinians. The Argentinian president, look. Like he's crazy and a fascist. But I want you to look at what he says. I don't necessarily like the way he says it. He uses the S-word a lot. But listen to what he's saying about the left in Argentina.

VOICE: You can't give leftists an engine.

VOICE: Can you define leftist?

VOICE: All collectivists. All kinds of collectivists.

VOICE: But why do you call them sheep?

VOICE: Because they are. If you think differently from them, they will kill you.

This is the point. You can't give sheep an engine. If you give them an inch, they will use it to destroy you.

You can't negotiate with left hearts. You don't negotiate. You don't negotiate with trash because they will end you.

They, the left, have a guy that beats his wife off.

If it's one of them, he puts on the green scarf, and yells at neoliberalism all the time. And they hide it. Suddenly there's a journalist that molests another journalist.

They hide it. When it's one of them, they hide it. They hide all of those apparitions.

Now, if you are on the other side, they will ruin you. They will kill you. They will throw you everything. They don't care if they ruin your whole life. Why?

Only because you don't think like that. And do you know what is the good part in all of this?

Because since to err is human, since everyone can be mistaken, they force us to be better. And since we are getting better than them. Since we are crushing them in the cultural battle, we are not only superior economically, we are morally superior. We are better aesthetically superior. We are better than them at everything. And that triggers them. And since they can't beat us with real arguments, they just use the repressive apparatus of the state. With loads of taxpayer money to destroy us. And yet, they're still losing. They had to remove the blacklist. They had to remove the blacklist. You understand, they're losing. They're desperate. Leftists are losing the cultural battle. For the first time ever, they are cornered. Those leftists.

GLENN: Now, when you watch him, he looks a little nuts.

STU: He has an interesting aesthetic going on there.

He has the crazy hair. Very passionate.

But that's a way. You know, people use that to dismiss him. Obviously, at their own peril.

GLENN: Correct. But listen to what they're saying. Why do we think this is about the Democrats and the Republicans?

Why are we fighting over stupid parties? When this is being fought now in Ireland. When it's being fought in several countries in Europe. This is being fought. He was just elected as president of Argentina. This isn't an American problem.

This isn't about Trump supporters. This isn't about the Tea Partiers.

They want you to believe that it is. But it's not. It's about standing up against an ideology, of collectivism.

That's what this is about. They believe that there are ranchers, and sheep. And if you agree with them, maybe you could be a rancher.

Otherwise, get into the pen. You're sheep.

And you will be slaughtered, if the sheep ever figure out. Wait a minute. There's more of us than them. You will be slaughtered.

That's what we're arguing about.

We're not arguing about tax policy or anything else.

You know, this guy is a great example. You hear this from somebody on the right in Europe. It can be very scary. Because you don't know. Because in Europe, left and right is very different. The left is communism. The right is fascism.

Both of those are oppressive. And death prescriptions. Horrible, horrible systems.

Here, the left is totalitarianism, of any kind. Theological. Leftist. Fascistic. Any of this stuff. Communism.

That's all on the left. In America, the right is anarchy.

The government is so small, that it can't do anything. And the very extreme of that, is anarchy.

We're just inside, out of reach of anarchy. That's what American conservatives should be fighting for. That's what makes this guy less scary.

Now, he can change. Maybe he's a fraud.

I don't know.

But what he's saying, he's going to do is dismantle all of the power centers.

He's going to dismantle their Federal Reserve. Their central bank.

He says, they're controlling the finances. They're controlling the money. They're controlling everything. And they're debasing and devaluing the money of the average person.

Well, same here! But if you speak out against the Federal Reserve. You're a crackpot.

I'm a fascist, because I believe that no secret cabal of bankers and banks, should decide what my money is worth?

That should decide what they can print and not print?

That my children have to pay for?

I'm a fascist because I believe that that shouldn't exist?

This is -- he's right.

They are losing it is going to come right down to the wire.

And I think AI is going to play a big role.

But if we stay sane, keep our wits and our heads, and our Judeo Christian ethics about us. And we let people see our ethics.

Nobody wants to hang out with people who are screaming, you know, death to the Jews.

At least, I hope not. And that's what they're becoming.

Shout your abortion.

Death to the Jews.

Take and mutilate children.

Teach children in school, that they should be protesters, above everything else. And that they can be whatever they want, and it starts with not listening to your parents. Because you know better than your parents. And we're on your side. Who wants that?

That's what this is really all about. And I hope he does exactly what he says, he's going to do.

Attempted MURDERERS among Palestinians RELEASED in hostage deal

Attempted MURDERERS among Palestinians RELEASED in hostage deal

The temporary truce between Israel and Hamas required Israel to release THREE Palestinian prisoners for every hostage Hamas releases (so much for fair deals). But who are these prisoners and why were they arrested? The media describes them as "mostly women and children." But Glenn did some digging and found out the truth. What the media should report is that the vast majority of these released prisoners are teenage boys, including some who opened fire on Jews, threw rocks at Jews, stabbed policemen, committed arson, and attempted to murder Israelis. So, will the media report on this? Or will they continue their history of praising "mostly peaceful" riots ...


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: All right. So Hamas kidnapped children. Kids as young as four years old. I think they have a couple of babies, still. And they were exchanged, for what will be three times as many Palestinian security prisoners.

So Hamas is getting a pretty good deal.

STU: Wait a minute. I was told, everyone was very concerned about proportionate response.

Proportionate response would be the same amount. But no one seems concerned about it anymore. Why is that? I don't know!

GLENN: I don't know. I can't find a story about it.

STU: I can't either. No one is mentioning it, what a surprise.

GLENN: And I couldn't find a story today.

Finally found one, and it is from the Jerusalem Post. What a surprise. But had to look for 30 minutes!

Finally had to have one of my researchers find it.

I went to Jerusalem.

I couldn't even find it.

40 Israeli hostages were taken by Hamas. Three times as many Palestinian prisoners.

So who are they?

Well, they're women and minors, most of them.

Oh. Okay.

STU: Children.

GLENN: What did the children and women do?

Can't find them. Find a list of everybody's name.

But can't find even the charges.

STU: You know what I heard this morning?

GLENN: What?

STU: Most Palestinian young men and boys will be arrested bit Israeli military at some point in their lives. That was the --

GLENN: Really? The same ones that were toddlers, that were taught in preschool, how to kill Jews?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Those people.

STU: At some point in their lives.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: At some point the Israeli military will come after them, because of who they are.

GLENN: Okay. So one of them was 16 years old.

He was from the West Bank, otherwise known as Judea and Samaria.

He was connected with FATA, FATA. And he was convicted of opening fire on Jews.

Now, he didn't kill anybody. Injured people.

But he didn't kill anybody. And he's a minor.

So he was given a sentence of five years, and two months in jail.

Oh, the humanity!

Can you imagine, if you had a 16-year-old kid in let's say, Chicago. That was just going to open up his gun, on a crowd of people. And just target them to kill them.

Every intent to kill them. But they were 16 years old. And they only injured several.

What would we do?

Would we give them five years? Two months in jail.

I think so.

Then you have Saudi Abu Adii of the West Bank. He was connected with Hamas. He was arrested when he was 17. This is one of the boys that they are saying, are being released. He was 17. He'll turn 18 in March.

He also opened fire on Jews, as well as throwing rocks. Breaking traffic laws. He was in pre-verdict detention, pending the outcome of his trial.

So this guy, this guy is just in trial. Remember, he -- April 2nd, 2023. He opened fire on a group of Jews to kill them, and then threw rocks.

The worst thing I could find was some of these people, they endangered security officials or threatened them, or they threw rocks.

STU: Yeah, I heard the throwing rocks thing.

As if, first of all, that's nothing. Throwing rocks at police officers is nothing.

GLENN: Well, throwing rocks, especially when you connect it to opening fire on Jews and throwing rocks. Kind of takes a different feel.

STU: There.

GLENN: Mora Beck here, of East Jerusalem, and connected with Hamas, arrested October 2015, at the age of 16.

She stabbed a border policeman who survived. She was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison.

Another prisoner to be released is Ahmed Marzook, 18, arrested four months ago for assaulting police, arson, possession of weapons, and other charges.

Amani Heshem, 37, arrested in December, 2016, charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm. Armed with knives and daggers. Then you have Walia Khalid Fazi Tangy. How many names? 26-year-old, arrested in August of last year, was charged with attempted murder and possession of weapons and explosives.

So last August, he was arrested. He's 26.

You know, one of the boys that may have been threatening security of Israel of some sort.

Significant minority. Significant minority, committing crimes that were either killing people, or attempted to kill people.

The remaining majority supported or were involved with a terror group, in some dangerous way. The oldest Palestinian on the release list, I think is the 59-year-old woman, who has the scars on her face.

Did you see her come home?

Yeah. She's horribly disfigured.

She was in a --

STU: Israel do that to her?

GLENN: No. No. She was in a car accident. Well, it wasn't a car accident. It was more like a suicide bombing vest, and she -- she caught on fire. And gosh, darn it, gosh darn it, just this innocent woman that, you know, almost burned to death. And was probably treated in an Israeli hospital. But don't worry, we're swapping them for 4-year-olds. And I think that's equal.

STU: Proportionate response.

GLENN: It is. Thank you for that. Thank you for that.

It is hard to watch this play out. I mean, it's hard to watch the families. And not feel good about it. I mean, I can't hold it against -- if this was my children, I would be feeling the same way. I don't care. Let her go. Let her go.

Being able to see some of the faces that were on the abducted posters that were torn down by so many. To see the faces of them returned and united with family members, if not their parents, because if many of their parents were killed. Many of their mothers and sisters were raped violently.

I don't know if you're following what is being now exposed.

But Elon Musk was there yesterday.

And I think he got an eyeful.

I don't know if you've been -- I don't know if you -- if you have been following what they have been doing to the women.

Now, Hamas says no, no, no. This is against the Koran.

Is it? Oh, tree.

Oh, tree. Shout out.

There's a Jew behind that rock.

Really? Really?

They say, it's -- it's against the Koran, to be able to rape a woman.

Well, what if they're an infidel.

I think we went through this with Barbary Pirates. I think we went through some of this.

They raped women and children.

Sometimes one person who has now testified as an eyewitness said, this one girl was being raped horribly. Her pelvis and her legs were broken.

And she was passed around. And then when they were done, while he was still in her, shot her in the back of the head. That's the kind of depravity we're dealing with. It is horrendous. And just for the Christmas spirit, you know, the -- the ghost of Hamas past will visit again, unless we snuff it out. And, you know what, the ghost of Hamas future, we need to choose now. Because these things are not coming here. These things are already here. Look at what is being said loudly. Proudly. Our campuses. By people we thought maybe some people thought were allies. Saying it on our streets. Saying it to people.

Meaning it. This is man made hell. And demons on our streets, who revel in blood and death. And it is already here. So we have to choose life, or choose death.

That is -- that is as simple as it gets.

Choose life. That's it.

I don't want to be a culture. I don't want to be part of the culture of death.

And I'm sorry. If you say you're going to do this to people. I take you at your word.

You know, I saw a little boy run to his mom.

And that was a piece of heaven in the here and now. But October 7th was the gaping mouth of hell itself. And it is also here and now.

So how do we -- how is there contact between heaven and hell? How is this possible?

We don't understand it, because we don't understand our own divine nature. God gave humans power of creation.

Everything you think, everything you believe, is creative. I just want you to think of this.

How are people destroying our country? Right now, how are they destroying us? They knew you couldn't destroy America from the outside, right? It had to come from within.

And once it came from within, you divide and conquer.

Is that only true for countries and civilizations? Or can we look at the small data, and look at us as individuals.

Are we being divided as a one individual.

Are you being divided, from who you really are?

To what you -- what people want you to be.

What they want you to believe.

About yourself.

Do you believe in good anymore?

Do you believe you're a force for good? Do you believe you know what the truth is, anymore?

Truth hasn't changed.

It hasn't changed.

We have.

Society has.

Our governments have.

But the truth hasn't changing.

They have divided each of us internally, from the truth. That's how you conquer a whole people. You divide them up inside. You get them to stop believing in goodness. In decency. Stop getting -- stop them from saying, wait a minute. This is wrong. I don't care what you say. You've gone insane!
