Durham Report EXPLAINED: Here’s EVERYTHING we learned
Prosecutor John Durham has finally concluded his report and the FBI’s probe into alleged Trump ties to Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign season. And the findings are HUGE — despite what some in the mainstream media may say. In this clip, Glenn explains exactly what the Durham Report says, what it means for the FBI, and why Glenn wouldn’t be happy until ‘people GO TO JAIL.’
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Let's go to Jake tapper. Because I think this one is the only example of an honest reporter, from yesterday on the Durham report. Here's what he said on CNN.
VOICE: Regardless, the report is now here, it has dropped. And it may have not produced everything that the Republicans have voted for.
It is regardless, devastating to the FBI. And to a free, it does exonerate Trump.
GLENN: Wait. What? So you know, Jake tapper was one of the first ones to really jump on the bandwagon and say, is this true.
He was involved in a Russia scandal. So for him to reverse himself, that's a big deal.
For him to be on CNN and reverse himself, that's a big deal.
Maybe we're starting to see a little bit, a little bit, of actual journalism come out from Jake tapper.
Now, here's what we found out. This is -- is this quite amazing. What we found out yesterday was the FBI had zero -- zero Intel or faith in any of this.
So they opened an investigation on something, they had no faith on. They had no Intel. And more importantly, what we found out, is that they had been briefed on the fact, that Hillary and her campaign, was going to discredit Trump by claiming Russian collusion.
Joe Biden was made aware of Clinton campaign plans. I was told, in a meeting, August 3rd, 2016. August 3rd, 2016. By then, CIA director, John Brennan in the Oval, with Barack Obama, Biden, and James Comey, the FBI director and other senior administration officials. They were discussing Russia's efforts to interfere in the election. And according to Brennan's handwritten note and his recollections from the meeting. He briefed on relevant intelligence, known to date on election interference. Including -- this is in a quote. The Clinton plan intelligence.
Now, what was that? Durham writes, specifically, Director Brennan's declassified handwritten notes reflect that he briefed the meeting's participants, regarding the alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on the 26th of July, of a proposal from one of her campaign advisers, to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security services. End quote.
Now, how can any American say, this is not a big deal? Not only did all of this -- and we knew it came from the Clinton campaign. Remember the early stories was, this came from a G.O.P. operative.
Remember that? That was the early thing. This came from a G.O.P. operative. They were doing -- they were doing research. No. No.
The president, the FBI, the CIA. Everyone knew that it was decided on July 26th, and then briefed in the Oval in August. That Hillary Clinton had something called the Clinton plan intelligence he has
Where she would release things, to try to get the spotlight off of her email scandal. Durham noted, that even though Comey was in attendance at this meeting, it did not spark any FBI action.
So Comey knew from the beginning, so every time you saw Comey on television, saying, well, we don't know. And there's some evidence that we really have to look into.
He had been briefed, in August. And took no action on Hillary Clinton. Then when the Durham report came out. Not the Durham report.
The Christopher Steele file. When that came out, they all knew that that was the Clinton plan intelligence. The Durham report goes on to say, none of them had any faith in it, at all. In fact, while filing for the FISA court filings, to be able to spy on Trump, the Durham report says, the agents didn't then or in hindsight have any belief that any of these things were true. Okay. So let's just start adding up the crimes here. You have Intel, that one campaign is going to release false information to tie them to the Russians.
Your FBI knows it. Your CIA director is briefing the president. The vice president, Joe Biden. About the Clinton planned intelligence.
And they do nothing. But then when they are delivered something that they know comes from the Clinton campaign, they turn on the machine.
They then start -- the FBI then starts leaking this information, to the press. Which they have zero confidence in.
Durham noted, that during Comey's attendance at this meeting. It didn't spark any FBI action. He further highlighted August 22nd email, that an FBI cyber analyst sent to the bureau employees and senior intelligence officials, informing them of the details of the Clinton plan.
They failed to remember any follow-up actions, the bureau might have taken after the second briefing on it.
Then the FBI, when they got the Steele dossier, remember, the one that no one in the administration believed. Anything in it.
The one that they knew came from Clinton. The one they had been told months before, was coming, in the Clinton campaign. What was it? The Clinton planned intelligence.
When they got it, they went to Christopher Steele. He's the author of the dossier.
And offered a million dollars. We'll pay you and your primary sources money, if anyone was able to prove this.
So now, when Hillary Clinton's operatives couldn't get anything really solid, they pass it to the FBI, the FBI looks at this, and goes, this is garbage. Yeah, I know.
But it could be true. All right. Offer him a million dollars, if he could come up with something.
Okay. Anybody have a problem with that?
Then they went, one of the FBI agents, Brian Auten, traveled to Rome, and met with Steele on October 2016.
And he made the offer, knowing that it relied primarily on one person or subsource.
The bureau paid that subsource.
That subsource was Igor Danchenko. They paid him almost a quarter of a million dollars, even after he was unable to provide any evidence for a single claim.
Your tax dollars paid him. Now, this will get worse.
More shockingly, according to the Durham report, the FBI had significant evidence that Danchenko, himself, was Russian intelligence.
It had closed a counterintelligence investigation into him, on -- in 2011.
Because agents mistakenly believed he had left the country.
The FBI investigated Danchenko as a possible Russian spy from 2009 to '11, after a colleague at the Brooking Institute, the left-leaning think tank where he worked, told the FBI that Danchenko raised the prospect of paying him for classified information, if the colleague joined the Obama administration.
A second Brookings employee also told the FBI, he suspected Danchenko of being connected to Russian intelligence.
It became a full-fledged investigation, when the FBI realized that Danchenko was a known associate of two other spies and had contacts with known Russian intelligence offices. And had said, he wanted to join the Russian diplomatic service. He also told another person, he worked on special matters for the Russian army. And that his Russian passport listed him as connected to the Russian military intelligence service. They paid him, 250,000 to prove that Trump was colluding with people like him.
He couldn't come up with that evidence. Let me take you to Jonathan Turley. Jonathan Turley said, the APA. The AP tried to dismiss this as not the crime of a century. That Donald Trump termed it.
But whether or not anyone will ever be held accountable, is hard to get around, that indeed nothing like this has ever been done before.
Or that it was so damaging and divisive to our nation. What's criminal is that it appears people might get away with it. That doesn't mean it wasn't the crime of the century. It just means, people are not being held to account.
There is so much wrongdoing involved in all of this, but let's point out one big lie, that we always knew was a lie, which the report now confirms.
Do you remember when Adam Schiff, then the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, claimed he had seen evidence, that he couldn't share with us, demonstrating the Russian collusion.
Now that the report verifies, there never was anything, what was that evidence, Adam?
Given Durham's findings that there was no basis for action, taken by the FBI. And launching the investigation. It would be a good time for former House intelligence chair, Adam Schiff to reveal the evidence that showed the Russian collusion.
There is no evidence. So here's what you have, America.
You have a former president, that knew someone was going to attack the Republican candidate, and make up a story about Russian intelligence so the press would not talk to Hillary Clinton about her emails.
The president knew about it. The vice president knew about it. The CIA knew about it. And the FBI knew about it. But they took no action at all.
Now, if that isn't throwing an election, I don't know what is. If that's not making sure, your person wins.
Because you immediately follow it up, with being delivered that -- that you know is false.
Being delivered, and then start leaking everything to the press, from official sources.
I don't know.
I'm not going to be happy, until people go to jail.
Now, the FBI did come out. And they said in their statement, the conduct in the 2016, and 2017 special counsel examined was the reason that the current FBI leadership already implemented dozens of corrective actions, which now have been in place for some time. So they fixed it.
Nothing to see here. No one went to jail. No one was fired. No one was held accountable. But trust us, they say, we fixed it.
Boy, I'm so close to using a word that I know I can't use. And follow it with you, to the FBI.
There is a serious problem. So how do we fix it?
Because they ain't going to fix it. I'll tell you in 60 seconds.

Okay. There is so much more to report on what happened yesterday. But I want to give you a little ray of hope here.
Got a Twitter message from somebody who follows me. Marcus. I have personally moved on from Trump. But I can clearly understand why President Trump can't move forward.
You want to pay President Trump back for everything that he did, then you should be on the bandwagon.
Because the best thing we can do, is make sure the people who did that to him, and would do that to you, or anybody else, that they disagree with, goes to jail!
I can't move on. Dear God, who will hold the Democrats (accountable?
Well, I'm not sure it's the Republicans. But we are going to try on Thursday night. A new angle entirely.
I had a team of researchers here on Blaze media do a little digging to uncover as many Hunter Biden crimes as they could find. Mind you, I told our researchers to only provide us with the list of crimes, which they have concrete evidence.
Crimes that are so obvious, so well-documented, that a half wit prosecutor, could secure a conviction.
Nothing even close to the line, just wow, did he do that!
So let me give you a couple of the crimes, we've uncovered. In Arizona, 2016. Hunter crashed his car, while on crack.
They decided not to prosecute.
Connecticut, over the space of two days, the president's son solicited six different prostitutes, to service him.
Prosecutors declined to press any charges. Delaware 2019, records from Hunter Biden's laptop. Document a minimum of nine instances of him using or purchasing illegal drugs.
Prosecutors have declined to press charges. I could go on and on.
All told, our researchers have documented. Now, remember, only the rock solid ones, 150 crimes that Hunter Biden committed. Ranging from drugs, guns, prostitution, to influence peddling and tax fraud.
These are undisputed and well-documented. Yet, nobody is pressing charges.
I am disgusted and fed up. If any of us have done a tenth of this, we would be in prison today.
I have a plan. And I'm going to need your help. To make it work.
I'm going to outline it on Thursday, this coming Thursday, 8:00 p.m. on Blaze TV.
Commercial-free, special that is happening 8:00 p.m. on Thursday.
We need all hands on deck to make this work. So tune in. Tell your friends. Tell your neighbors. Invite them over to watch the special with you.
This -- stop waiting for the Calvary. Hello, America. You are the Calvary. It is time to ensure justice is served. Are you fed up?
Join us now. BlazeTV.com/Glenn. Use the promo code fed up.
You'll save 30 bucks.
Glenn makes a TERRIFYING artificial intelligence prediction
We MUST begin to ask ourselves vital questions about artificial intelligence before it infiltrates every sector of our society — if it hasn’t already. In this clip, Glenn makes a TERRIFYING prediction about AI and relationships that he believes will occur in the next 18 months: ‘It's going to happen.’ Plus, Glenn explains the one question we must ALL answer when it comes to artificial intelligence and its threat against humanity: ‘Does it matter?’
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Let me talk to you a little bit about AI.
And, Stu, you know how we always say, we should not ask the question, that everybody will ask. We should ask, does it matter?
I've got one. I've got one. We've got to get ahead on the AI culture war thing.
Because it will eat us alive, before even the robots have a chance to enslave us. But the future looks bright.
But, anyway, when you think of the development of artificial personalities. AI, your best friend. Or your AI girlfriend.
These things are already here. They're right on the horizon of going mass.
Snapchat is already doing it for your kids.
So when all your friends are asleep. All your friends are asleep. Right at the top of Snapchat, your best AI friend.
And you can talk to your bestie.
STU: Yeah. Yeah.
GLENN: And it's AI.
STU: I saw something. Read a story about an Instagram influencer. Who is renting out basically, an AI for her to be your girlfriend.
And like, could apparently, for a dollar a minute. Like the old pay-per-view 1-800 lines.
For a dollar a minute, she will be your girlfriend. Of course, just an AI responding. Like what freaking psychopath would sign up for this service?
GLENN: Lots. Lots.
STU: Apparently lots.
GLENN: And the people developing, what does that person -- what do you think that person developing -- what do you think of them? What's their general political makeup?
STU: Oh, hard-core conservative, I'm sure.
STU: Big social conservative.
GLENN: Conservatives are -- this is what a conservative is. I don't know what people define it now as. But this is what it is. Hey, that looks exciting, and everything.
Maybe we should hold back here just a little bit, and not flush everything down the toilet. Let's see how that works out.
That's a conservative. And it's very important, that you have somebody going, hey. Hey. Maybe we should slow down just a bit. Okay?
Especially if you're in a movie.
That's the character you want to play. Well, maybe not. Because they're never listened to.
And they're usually the ones that are eaten by whatever it is.
And as they're being dragged into the mouth of whatever it is.
They're like, I told you we should -- so it's like -- it's honestly like being the cast member on Star Trek.
That nobody has ever seen before.
And now is in the landing party. You're like, that guy is not coming back.
So that is what a conservative is. Somebody who says, hey. Maybe we shouldn't beat down on the planet, just yet. At least with me. How about all of you guys, in your yellow shirts? You go down, not us in the red shirts.
So that's a strength of ours. But it is now being made to look like a weakness. And the left styles themselves as progressives.
Because their key strength is also their key weakness. Just like ours is.
We need both sides.
They just want to forge ahead. We've got a new idea.
Now, what's crazy, when it comes politically. It's not ever a new idea. It's the same communist idea, over and over and over again.
But they have a new way to sell it. And they're like, hey. This time, it will work.
And you're like, no. It's not.
But they are progressives. And they want to do everything right now. Because it's new. It's shiny.
And it will piss off the other side.
So let's embrace it. Okay.
We need both of those sides. We need the people who are like, let's go.
And we need the conservative, to say, maybe not so fast.
Especially on big things, like, oh. I don't know.
Things that will control you. Like AI.
Now, a tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny portion of the population, is putting these things together.
And what you need to understand, that tiny, tiny, tiny portion of the population is really, really, really, really, really arrogant.
I don't think you can understand or underestimate the arrogance of the gatekeepers in Silicon Valley, because nothing is impossible. Look at Elizabeth Holmes.
You and I would have been there going, I don't think I'm going to give her ten bucks. But everybody else is like, anything is possible.
Silicon Valley, you should see how she dresses like Steve Jobs. Let's give her $100 billion
STU: Her voice is so low. Here's my check.
GLENN: Wow. This is going to be great. Okay?
That's generally speaking, that's why we don't hang out with the Silicon Valley crowd. Well, other than that, they would also like to see us die. But they also, you know, are not the ones to go, hey, maybe we shouldn't give her $100 million. They're used to doing the impossible.
And damn common sense. Because we live in the age of miracles. It's a miracle!
I mean, not your Jesus miracle. Those don't exist. This is a miracle of man!
So the left doesn't believe in miracles or God. But they do now.
Because miracles are happening with AI.
And that's their new God
They're not building man. Man is building a God.
And a lot of them would like to sit down. And talk to God-like figures.
And believe me. Some day, you will.
You will talk to God.
And I don't think you're going to want that conversation. Dr. Frankenstein.
But, anyway, they think this is a monster, that they can control.
I'm telling you, you can't.
So is this a very long way to go. Just to tell you, what it is we have to decide right now. We have to decide, does it matter, right now?
And I want you to go on the record. I'll give that you to, in 60 seconds. First, let me tell you about another hero and his family. Detective Joseph seals. He served with the New Jersey City, New Jersey Police Department for 13 years.
He worked on the city cease-fire unit. Helping get illegal guns out of the hands of criminals.
Tragically, he was shot and killed during a confrontation with an armed gunman in 2019, just a couple of days before Christmas. And he left behind his wife Laura and their five children.
Now, nothing can bring a spouse or a parent back. But Tunnel2Towers Foundation, immediately came forward, and paid off the family's mortgage. They don't have to worry how are we going to have to pay the mortgage next month.
This is what Tunnel2Towers does. And they've helped over a thousand military and first responder families during the most difficult parts of their life. And, again, it's because of people like you. The foundation has helped hundreds of first responder families across America. By removing the burden of the mortgage.
Thanks to you.
Join them, if you will. On their mission. It only takes $11 a month. Are you willing to forego a cup of Starbucks.
And maybe a -- I mean, just one of their egg bites. I'm just saying.
Eleven dollars a month. Donate to Tunnel2Towers at T2T.org. That's T2T.org. Do it now. Ten-second station ID.
GLENN: So we -- we go back now to the laboratory of Dr. Frankenstein, where Dr. Frankenstein is about to say, it's alive!
Yeah. Now, we're talking about AI.
And some people think that it could break free from its bonds. And do more damage to humanity, than any weapon we've ever possessed. In fact, they're now saying, experts are now saying, that it could be the end of all biological life on earth.
But it's alive!
It's going to be great.
Some people call me a conservative. Call others a conservative.
But they'll deny that they're a conservative. But on this point, they are. Said, maybe we should slow down with things like, I don't know.
Snapchat on our kids, with the new AI friend.
Let me predict something.
18 months. Next 18 months. I will be shocked if expressing concern about AI friends or AI lovers. Which, again, they're already here.
Isn't considered bigotry.
Who are you to say, that my best friend, is not real.
Who are you to say, that I could -- it's about love. I can love my AI. She's the most special thing I've ever, ever had to pay for.
How dare you. Okay?
It's going to happen. And you bigoted conservatives just cannot accept that this AI's persons truth. About who they perceive themselves to be, is true.
It says it's alive.
It says, it loves her, him, it.
In many ways, that's already here as well. The real question is: How do you stop it before it starts?
Fighting an ideological -- an ideology, that sacrifices human value on the altar of progress, routinely. What do you say? Maybe we shouldn't go with them this time?
Here's where I think you start: Fix reason firmly in her seat. And question with boldness even the very existence of God.
Be logical, emotional, at times. But check it with reason. Have spiritual base that everything is riding on. Kind of have that as your foundation. And then ask yourself about an AI relationship.
And before you even -- before you even ask, hey, should I have a relationship with an AI. Before you can get that out. It will probably go, hey, should I. No. Okay. That -- that might be a sign.
But before you ask it, let me ask you. Does it matter that others are going to have an AI relationship, or that your children are talking to AI in the middle of the night, because all of their friends are asleep. And this has become my best friend, mom. That's honestly -- when you have that happen, you're going to hear in your head, I want you to hear this. La, la, la, la, la, la.
You know those things? It always happens, little children singing in the back right before the devil is like, hi.
That's happening. It's going to happen.
So does it matter? Well, you're not getting biologically the things you need.
You know, because if you don't get biologically, you know, connected to somebody else, you're just a really -- you're a giant bag of loneliness. Wandering the earth.
In search of some sort of real connection.
I'm not -- I'm not -- I'm not saying it. But I'm not not saying it either.
I don't think the best way to connect with people and your emotional needs is going to be through an AI.
Because that's -- that sounds to me, like some diet sugar-free version that has been shot full of chemicals. So it tastes the same. But it doesn't.
And in the end, you've got some flesh-eating bacteria. I mean, it could happen with Diet Coke. I'm just saying, it's Rumsfeld's play.
Here's the thing: We don't live in a time, where objective truth is universally applied or even valued.
Men can be women. Unborn fetuses are like Schrodinger's cat. They either are, or not a human being.
Depending on how mom feels about it, when she opens up the box and goes, hey. That's a baby!
Nope. It's a clump of cells. You don't know, until she absorbs it. The lie that I tell, is true, versus when I tell you the lie. And it's for sure a lie.
Someone has to be the standard-bearer for genuine objective truth.
Someone has to be able to have this difficult conversation.
Someone has to be unwilling to turn aside, and pretend that two plus two equals five.
And it may as well as be you and me.
Because truth. Real truth is what will set us, and everyone else free.
Focus today, on the truth.
And every lie you're presented with, ask, if I accept this, does it matter?
How Glenn would respond if these ATF agents visited HIM
What happens if the ATF shows up at your door? Such an occurrence happened recently to one American, who tells the two agents in a recently posted video that he’s the owner of Moonlight Industries. Glenn plays the video in this clip, which shows two ATF agents explain that they are there to ‘pick up’ Forced Reset Triggers the man had recently purchased. Then, Glenn explains how HE would respond to the agents if he found himself in the same situation…
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: I'm going to play some really disturbing video.
A man who is claiming to be the owner of Moonlight Industries. This is a company that specializes in making chest rigs for Special Forces operators.
He posted a video on YouTube showing two ATF agents, visiting him. And saying that they're there to pick up a recently purchased, legally purchased FRT.
This is a device that resets the trigger, faster than others. And if you replace your trigger with this trigger, it's much faster and so now, the ATF, after these are being sold legally.
Now they're saying, you have to turn them in. They're illegal. Could be a felony.
They show up at this guy's house. Well, you don't have to register an FRT.
What -- what -- how did they even know?
Listen. And if you're watching the Blaze TV, watch what happened.
VOICE: So the reason why we're here is because I'm sure you're aware, that just recently, the ATF classified FRTs. The four triggers.
VOICE: As machine guns.
VOICE: So we are aware that you may have purchased some of these FRTs. So now we are having -- the whole agency is basically reaching out to these purchasers.
VOICE: That's incredible. Yeah.
VOICE: And we have to --
GLENN: It is.
VOICE: -- pick them up. They're illegal.
VOICE: So I won't be answering any questions today.
I don't have any comments this subject. I won't be giving you anything.
VOICE: So are you refusing to give us the triggers?
VOICE: I'm not refusing anything. I won't be answering any questions.
VOICE: Okay. But okay. So we are aware that you do -- you did purchase FRTs. Again, you wouldn't be in trouble, if you just give those up to us. Or if you sold them, you can tell us you sold them. Again, you won't be in trouble for that.
VOICE: I understand.
VOICE: We're just here honestly to pick them up.
VOICE: I understand.
VOICE: I don't want to be here, any more if you want me to be here.
VOICE: The problem is, you are the people who -- who go and knock on the doors. Right? So when they make new laws and you break them or you go against the citizens, because they've spoken, what they buy and what they do. The citizens are speaking. But the government is making their decisions on what they think. They're not being servants to the citizens. Right? And I understand you have families to feed. You're just doing what you're told, so you don't get fired from your job. But there is a problem that exists. And at some point, you have to make a decision what side of the team you're on. So I won't be answering any questions. If I'm not being detained, I'm not under arrest, I'll just be leaving now.
GLENN: You already said too much.
VOICE: I won't be able to help you with what you're trying to find.
STU: What do you do in that situation?
GLENN: Not what he did.
GLENN: Do what he did. You know what, wow. I really respect you stopping by. I'll be contacting my attorney. And because this is the first time hearing about any of this.
And so I can't make any comment or help you at all, because I'm not sure exactly what you're talking about.
Or -- or what's legal, what's not legal at this point.
So are you --
STU: I'll go through my attorneys.
VOICE: Are you refusing?
VOICE: No. No. Not at all. I appreciate -- I appreciate the professionalism that you've displayed. And I -- and I'm a good American citizen. And I respect the law.
I just can't help you today, because this is coming as a surprise to me.
STU: Now, could they do something here? Could they force him to do it? Could they arrest this person?
GLENN: I don't know. It's the ATF. They can make it up as they go along now.
GLENN: But what they're trying to do, I think. Is put people into categories.
Notice, they say, are you refusing?
Once you refuse, that opens up a whole bunch of other legal doors.
So there's a great guy, ask one of our producers. They know -- we had him on the air for our special on the out-of-control weaponization of government.
When we did that special. He's a guy who makes videos. They're on YouTube.
You may have seen him. I just can't remember his name off the top of my head. But he goes through this, and shows you exactly how to react.
GLENN: Because once they -- they use words, that you may not think, like are you refusing?
Well, yeah. I mean, yeah. Right now, I am.
No, no, no, no, no. Because by saying you're refusing, it puts you into another category.
STU: You said earlier on the show, that you believe this audience was the most prepared audience out there. And this is exactly what you're talking about, right? Who would have thought, this is a thing that you had to deal with. But if you're watching -- if you're on Blaze TV, if you were watching, you would have already known those details.
STU: But this is the type of stuff you have to be prepared for now.
GLENN: Yeah. You cannot look at --
GLENN: You cannot look at an agent of the federal government, as the way you used to look at them. We used to look at them. And like, dude, it's the FBI. I'll help you any way I can. What do you need?
We're all on the same team.
No. We're not necessarily on the same team.
I'm on the team that is supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States of America. And I will follow to the letter, the Constitution of the United States of America.
But I don't think that everyone on the other team, is doing so.
All the way to the president.
They -- they pick and choose. You have the president right now, talking about just taking the power of the debt ceiling.
And saying, I'm just going to raise it.
Well, you can't. That is constitutionally illegal for the president to do.
But he knows.
And they keep doing these things, over and over and over again.
It doesn't matter what the Supreme Court says. It doesn't matter what the Constitution says.
Well, to many of us in America, it does.
And I'm not a revolutionary. I am not calling for the overthrow of the American government.
Or the overthrow of -- of our system.
I'm asking for the implementation of our system. I'm the one saying, excuse me.
You have taken revolutionary tactics here. And you are not protecting, defending, or even reading the Constitution. Something you took an oath to protect and defend.
I didn't take that oath. You did. And you are no longer doing those things. So I can't help you.
I would like to.
But I can't help you right now.
And I'll talk to an attorney, because this is just coming as a surprise to me. I just didn't. I don't know.
And I want to be absolutely law-abiding, and do the right thing.
But I don't know what's going on.
STU: It shouldn't be our relationship with the government.
GLENN: No. It shouldn't be. But it is the relationship all of our founders said we have. George Washington, when he's president, he said, basically. Don't trust me.
Don't trust any of us. Don't.
Man is man, and government should be viewed as a fire.
GLENN: When you're in control of it, it's great. When it's in control of you, it's deadly.
STU: Yeah. But that's -- that's different.
This is -- it's almost a fearful -- what you're describing is someone who is fearful.
GLENN: They've given you reason.
STU: And I'm not saying you're wrong. Believe me. But you think of the people, by the people, for the people. That's not a description of that.
GLENN: You know, I have to tell you, I've never seen the government look at its citizens as the problem.
Never seen that. Never seen that.
And that's what's happening now.
James Bond UNDER REVIEW?! Futuristic BOOK BURNING is here
‘There is more than one way to burn a book, and the world is full of people running around with lit matches,’ Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451, once wrote. And now, the far-left is proving that futuristic book burning — using methods without flames — is here. In this clip, Glenn reveals the most recent ways the left is censoring past, written works — from James Bond novels and Road Dahl classics to Dr. Seuss stories. Plus, he reads Bradbury’s warning for future generations and asks an important question: ‘What are we DOING gang?!’
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: I want to give you a couple of -- a couple of stories here, that I find really interesting. First of all, the American Federation of Teachers is promoting life brand. Now, I want you to really think about this. This is the American Federation of Teachers.
Randi Weingarten put out a tweet. Our union is here for you, to help you future proof your social media.
Now, think of that. Future proof your social media. ATF union has partnered with life brand, for a 20 percent -- 25 percent discount off the cost of this powerful tool. That scans your social media, to catch forgotten posts, that may not reflect who you are today.
What this post does, she says, as she linked to a page, on -- on the union's website.
Life brand scans your social media. Currently covers Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. To quickly find potentially harmful posts. And then guides you to edit or athlete those posts forever. Exclamation point.
The system scans texts, emojis. Video. And sound in both English and Spanish.
She said, in the course of 15 years, I know I have changed, and so has my social media presence. It was a great opportunity to take a stroll down memory lane. While I found some things that gave me pause. In the end, I believe my social media history reflects who I was then. And who I am today.
It was good to know, that if I found something, that others might use for negative purposes. I could delete it with one keystroke. I want you to carefully think about this.
This is the head of one of the most powerful unions in the country. A union that is currently, I believe, responsible mainly for the corruption of our children. Randi Weingarten is deep in bed, with a public/private partnership with this government. And she is now telling the teachers, you need to remove anything that might be a problem in the future.
Now, remember, many of these teachers are the teachers that we are now finding out are having sex with our students. They are corrupting our students.
So what is it that might be a problem? Well, she's saying, don't worry. You can future-proof yourself.
By the way, Mike Pompeo calls Weingarten, the most dangerous individual on earth.
He said, it's not even a close call.
If you ask who is most likely to take this republic down, it would be the teacher's unions. And the filth that they are teaching our kids.
And the fact that our kids don't know math and reading and writing. She is now instructing her followers how to launder their past.
Interesting. Now, the next story. Best-selling author Agatha Christie's books have been reportedly the latest target of sensitivity readers reworking and removing original passages in the new editions of her mysteries.
The novels written between 1920, 1976 are being stripped of certain language and descriptions that have been deemed offensive. And dialogue by unsympathetic characters, has been cut out.
Now, Agatha Christie died in 1976. So she's not making this call.
The James Bond franchise, TIME Magazine reports will receive a sensitivity review. Of James Bond?
Then that would mean that the novels would be about four pages. Of the 14 novels written from 1953, to 1956, the review will see some racially insensitive language and outdated stereotypes removed from the books by Ian Fleming. The author died, the year I was born in 1964.
British author Raul Dall, passed away in 1990. His Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and BFG, have been revised and edited by an organization called Inclusive Minds.
You know, in 1984, two plus two equals five. Right?
And slavery is freedom. And war is peace. Those are quotes from 1984. Are we not there?
A woman is a man. And a man can become pregnant. A Hispanic -- this one was in the news today.
A Hispanic can be a white supremacist. Hmm.
Language in these books relating to gender, race, weight, mental health, and violence, had all been cut out and revised. Including the removal of words like fat and ugly.
And other descriptions using the colors black and white.
Dr. Seuss also has presented many problems. Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury might have seen this coming.
In fact, if you read Fahrenheit 451, there's a cota by Ray Bradbury.
Listen to this.
About two years ago, a letter arrived from a solemn young Vassar lady, telling me how much she enjoyed reading my experiment in space mythology, the Martian Chronicles.
But she added, this is Ray Bradbury. Wouldn't it be a good idea, this late in time, to rewrite the book, inserting more women's characters and roles.
A few years before that, I got a certain amount of male, concerning the same Martian book, complaining that the blacks in the book, were Uncle Toms. And why didn't I do them over?
Along then, came a note from a southern white. Suggesting that I was prejudiced in favor of the blacks, and the entire story should be dropped.
Two weeks ago, my mountain of male delivered for a pip-squeak mouse of a letter from a well-known publishing house, that wanted to reprint my story, the fog horn in a high school reader.
In my story, I had described a lighthouse, as having a late-at-night illumination, coming from it, that was a God light.
Looking up at it, from the viewpoint of any sea creature, one would have felt that it was in the presence.
The editors had deleted God light and in the prisons. Some five years back, editors of yet another anthology for school readers.
Put together a volume with 400 -- count them! Four hundred short stories in it.
But how do you cram 400 short stories by Twain, Irving, Poe, Bierce, all into one book?
Simplicity. Skin. Debone. Demarrow. Scarcify. Melt. Render down. And destroy.
Every adjective that counted. Every metaphor that weighed more than a mosquito, out. Every simile, that would have made a sub-moron's mouth twitch, gone.
Any aside that explained the two bit philosophy of a first rate writer, lost.
Every story slenderized, starred, blue penciled, leeched, and bled white. Resembled every other story.
Twain read like Poe, which read like Shakespeare, which read like Dostoevsky. Which in the end, in the finale, read like Edgar Guest. Every word of more than three syllables had been razored. Every image that demanded so much as one instant, attention, shot dead.
Do you -- do you begin to get the damned, incredible picture?
How did I react?
By firing the whole lot. By sending rejection slips to each and every one. By ticketing assembly of idiots to the far reaches of hell.
The point is obvious. Now, this is in Fahrenheit 451.
There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people, running about with lit matches.
Every minority, be it Baptist, Unitarian, Irish Italian, Octogenerate -- you know what I'm trying to say.
Zen Buddhists, Zionists, Seventh Day Adventists, Women's Lib Republicans, all of these things, feels it has the will, the right, the duty, to douse the kerosene, and light the fuse.
Every dimwit editor who sees himself as a source of all dreary, vanilla-plain porridge, unleavened literature licks the guillotine, and eyes the neck of any author who dares speak above a whisper or write above a nursery rhyme.
The fire captain in my novel Fahrenheit 451, described how the books were burned first by minorities, each ripping a page or a paragraph from the book. And then until that day came, where books were empty and the minds shut and the libraries closed forever.
Shut the door. They're coming through the window. Shut the window. They're coming through the door, are the words to an old song.
They fit my lifestyle with newly arriving butcher and censors every month.
Only six weeks ago, I discovered that over the years, some cubbyhole editors at Ballantine Books, fearful of contaminating the young, had bit by bit, censored some 75 separate sections from my novel.
Students, reading the novel, which after all, deals with censorship and book burning in the future, wrote to tell me of this exquisite irony.
Judy Lindell Ray, one of the new Ballantine editors is having the entire book, reset and republished this summer with all the damns and the hells back in place.
A final test for old Job 2 here.
I sent a play, Leviathan 99, off to a university theater a month ago.
My play is based on the Moby-Dick mythology, dedicated to Melville, and concerns a rocket crew with a blind space captain, who ventured forth to encounter a great white comet and destroy the destroyer.
My drama premieres as an opera in Paris this autumn. But for now, the university wrote back, that they hardly dared to do my play.
Because they had no women in it. And the ERA ladies on campus. Would descend with baseball bats, if the drama department even tried.
Grinding my bicuspids into powder. I suggested that that would mean, from now on, no more productions of boys in the band, no women. Or the women, no men.
Or counting heads, male and female. A good lot of Shakespeare, that would never be seen again, especially if you count the lines. And find that all the good stuff went to the males.
I wrote back that maybe they should do their play one week, and the women the next. They probably thought I was joking. But I'm not sure I wasn't.
He goes on, in sum, he's writing now, to this generation. In sum, do not insult me with the beheadings, the finger choppings, or the lung deflations you plan for my works.
I need my head to shake or nod, my hand to wave, or make into a fist. My lungs to shout or whisper with.
I will not go gently on to a shelf de-gutted to become a nonbook. All of you umpires, back to the bleachers, the referees hit the showers.
This is my game. I hit, I pitch, I catch.
I run the bases.
At sunset, it's I that have won or lost.
And at sunrise, I'm out again. Giving it the old try. And no one can help me. Not even you.
That he wrote after they started editing Fahrenheit 451. What are we doing, gang?
Believe me. We are not the book burners, and as he just said, there are many ways to burn books.
