How Tulsi Gabbard Went from Bernie Sanders Supporter to Possible Trump VP Pick

How did former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard go from endorsing Bernie Sanders to allegedly being on Donald Trump’s vice-presidential shortlist?

She addresses the rumors about whether she’s talked to Trump about being VP and whether she’d join his administration as Secretary of Defense. Plus, she lays out the 2 most critical questions that voters should be asking when choosing between Trump and Biden in the election.

GLENN: Tulsi Gabbard, welcome to the program, how are you?

TULSI: Very good, my friend. How are you?

GLENN: I am good. I am good.

Are you in Hawaii? Right now.

TULSI: I'm in Virginia, today.

GLENN: Okay.

TULSI: And tomorrow. And Texas the day after. I'm on the road, living out of a suitcase.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

Okay. First of all, you're on a short list.

And I'm not going to ask you anything other than, have you had a conversation with him, about being vice president?

TULSI: I've spoken to him. I will talk about what we've spoken about. I have met and spoken to him.

GLENN: That's fine. Would you serve in any capacity in a Trump administration?

TULSI: I would serve in a capacity where I felt that I could actually be effective in helping to get our country back on track, both in domestic policy, and foreign policy.

GLENN: So, Tulsi, you know I respect you. I really like you.

We disagree on things. You were a former Bernie Sanders supporter.

You know, but I also know, you love the Constitution.

And America.

And the country.

And just finding somebody who loves America, is very hard to find right now.

Can you help me out on understanding the Bernie Sanders to, you know, I would be willing to serve in a Trump administration.

TULSI: Of course. I'm glad you asked. Because it is on its face, kind of a -- a big mental -- a mental leap. But when you actually look at the reason, when I made that announcement, back in 2016, to resign as vice chair of the DNC, so that I could get involved in that democratic presidential primary, I focused on one thing.

I announced my endorsement of Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton, around foreign policy.

Bernie Sanders of today is even the different now, than he was back then. On this -- on some of these foreign policy issues.

But there was a very clear contract between Hillary Clinton, the queen of warmongers. And Bernie Sanders, who has for a long time, largely been more of a noninterventionist.

And I was frustrated because as an officer of the DNC, I couldn't, you know, according to the rules, get involved or speak out publicly.

But as you remember, Glenn, people were saying Hillary Clinton was the most qualified person to ever run for president in the history of our country.

But, of course -- I know. I still laugh when I think about that.

GLENN: Yeah.

TULSI: And it wasn't just her campaign people who were saying this. It was supposedly serious people on, you know, the different cable shows. And the broadcast news shows.

And the Meet the Press type shows.

But they never went behind. Okay. She held this title and that title and that title.

It would never go into what her record actually was. The kinds of decisions that she made.

The things that she influenced and urged President Obama to do as Secretary of State.

And for me, as an American citizen, as a soldier and a veteran of various wars and conflicts, I felt strongly about the fact that Hillary Clinton would be the most dangerous president and commander-in-chief for our country. Our freedom, our security, and our liberty.

And so I took the opportunity to make that endorsement of Bernie Sanders, around that issue, so that I could have a platform to call her out directly to the American people. So that at a minimum, they could make a more informed decision, about who they wanted, to be the democratic presidential nominee for that time.

GLENN: So the -- that explains an awful lot.

The State Department, you know, has been off the rails for a hundred years. They're very warmongering. What's happening in Ukraine is obscene.

And strangely, I think since Ronald Reagan and I think even more so than Ronald Reagan. But it was a different time.

Donald Trump is the least -- he understands peace through strength, but he is the least likely to go to war.

And yet, the left keeps saying, he's a warmonger.

TULSI: It's their tried and true tactic. And you see them doing this, not only with an issue with seriousness as war and peace.

But you also see how they're doing it around democracy. You know, they're claiming, he will be the dictator in chief, or this will be the last election that's held if he wins. And so on and so forth.

And yet, we look at how they're weaponizing the Department of Justice. All they're doing to both target and prosecute, throwing everything and the kitchen sink at Donald Trump.

But also going after everyday Americans, whose names will never be in the headlines. Because they are the, quote, unquote, political opposition.

The undermining of free speech. The undermining of the rule of law.

And yet, they cloak all of this. And try to distract and deflect attention from the American people, and the reality of how they are destroying their democracy, right before their very eyes. And they do so, by saying, Donald Trump is the biggest enemy of democracy.

They are the doing same thing around foreign policy. The thing that I'm urging Americans to do across the country. Both through my book, love of country, but also in every platform or speech, where people will have me. Is to look at the facts. This is the first time in our lifetimes, we've had a presidential election, where we actually have two people who served in the White House, with a very real record, for us to examine.

GLENN: Compare.

TULSI: And take the emotions aside. People have strong feelings, one way or another.

And there's -- and that's what a lot of the Democrats and Biden people focus on. Because they're afraid that we will actually compare and contrast their record on border security, on education, on fairness for women and girls in sports and education, on the economy and inflation.

You know, they'll -- on criminal justice reform.

Something the Democrats claim to be for.

And also, of course, first and foremost. Foreign policy.

Ask how secure is our country today. And where are our taxpayer dollars being dedicated?

In each of these areas and more, there's a very clear contrast, between President Biden and President Trump. And to me, what it all comes down to. Are the two most core critical questions.

As you pointed out, are rooted in the Constitution. Is number one, who -- who actually has served the interests of the American people, and our country.

And our ability to live in a safe, free, peaceful, and prosperous society?

And number two, who has -- who has either defended or assaulted our fundamental rights and freedoms that are enshrined in the Constitution?

Freedom of speech. Freedom of expression. Freedom of religion.

Our civil liberties are guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment. And, again, when you look at these metrics, there is -- there is no question, about the difference between President Biden and President Trump.

GLENN: Let me ask you, why should somebody, and I don't mean this just to you. I mean, this for anybody.

Even Joe Biden, Donald Trump.

Why should we believe, when we have not seen one for a very long time?

And when they do believe this, they're called extremists.

Why should we believe anybody, or you, that you actually -- your oath of office would mean what it says? That you will protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights?

TULSI: I think with anybody and everyone, it is -- it is -- you know, going back to the old adage, trust but verify. We have to hold people accountable, and that is true of me and of anyone asking for the trust and confidence of the American people. I think part of that is recognizing that as the world changes. As the country changes, there has to be room for people to learn and grow from these changing circumstances.

I think a lot of the problems that we're seeing in a lot of the political divides. And I get it. Trust is earned.

But -- but they're -- in order for there to be progress, we have to allow people to grow and change. Based on the circumstances. You know, we -- we have seen, I think over these last five or six years.

Or especially during the Obama -- I'm sorry. During the Biden administration, we have seen what an increasingly tyrannical government looks like. And we are seeing how our Founding Fathers were so wise in recognizing that our democracy, this form of governance that we have, in this constitutional republic. Through this representative democracy. It's very fragile. And how people in positions of power, are often tempted. And may fall to that temptation. Of abuse of power.

And so we have this system of checks and balances, through three coequal branches of government. We have this system of checks and balances through the Constitution. Our First Amendment and our Second Amendment.

For the power to always favor the voices and the power of the free people and a free society.

I would never have imagined, Glenn, in my lifetime, that we would see such brazen abuse of power.

GLENN: No.

TULSI: And it's not only just a failure to uphold the Constitution. The Democrat elite are actively destroying the Constitution, in broad daylight.

GLENN: Yes.

TULSI: And telling us, no. We don't think the First Amendment is relevant today. Because of misinformation. Disinformation. Hate speech. All of the excuses that they give.

Which are very dangerous. They tell us that, no. The Second Amendment shouldn't apply. And they cite all these different statistics of tragedies that occur in our country.

But ultimately, taking guns away from law-abiding Americans, would not actually prevent those types of tragedies from occurring.

GLENN: Make it more dangerous.

TULSI: It would make it more dangerous. And it's denied the reality that we have faced I think throughout the history of humanity.

If you have a person who seeks to do harm to others, they will find a way to do so.

Unfortunately.

GLENN: Tulsi.

TULSI: Go ahead.

GLENN: No. You finish your thought please. I don't want to interrupt you.

TULSI: They will find a way to do so. It's incumbent upon us, again, to understand and recognize the seriousness of this moment. And the fact that they are doing all these things because they're afraid of the power of the free people. But we're only powerful if we hold on to that power.

GLENN: I want to ask you one more question. I know we're out of time, for your schedule.

Can I -- sixty seconds more, and then I'll ask you just one more question, if you have time.

Okay. Good. Back with Tulsi Gabbard here just a second.

Tulsi, when you're in town, I would love to do another podcast with you. I find you fascinating. And I actually think you could be a huge help to bringing our country back together. But time is so short here.

I wanted to ask you, you know, one of the things that if I were President Trump, I would actually consider you as a vice presidential candidate to unite the country, you know, after much discussion. But the one thing I would feel comfortable appointing you to, is Secretary of Defense.

Our military is a mess. And it's because we have all of these woke generals and all of these political appointments. They've all risen to the top. The problem is, it doesn't appear to me, below the -- the general and all of their, you know, apparatus around them.

If you were Secretary of Defense, could you clean this up?

Is it fixable?

TULSI: Yes. Yes. Unequivocally, yes.

GLENN: How?

TULSI: And your diagnosis is correct.
You know, it's not by accident that the kinds of general officers that are rising through the ranks are those who are advocating for these so-called woke CIAs, whatever -- whatever policies. The reason why they've gotten there is because of their civilian leadership. Picking and choosing people, who -- who will not -- I mean, obviously, we have a civilian-led military. Those in uniform will follow the policies that are set by civilian leaders. But these civilian leaders, Secretary Austin, and the different secretaries of each branch of the military.

They are promoting careerists, who have played it safe. Who have done whatever they needed to do, to go along and get along. To rise through the ranks. And have not been in those positions. And have intentionally so. Not been in those combat hardened positions. Where they have to make really tough choices. That may come with some backlash. But that is the definition of leadership.

And I can tell you, I know personally, a number of officers, in different branches of the military, who have been shoved out. And forced to retire, because they happen to be white males. And these are people who over the last 25 years, have deployed every single year in the most harsh combat environments. And made those tough calls between life and death.

There have been investigations because of it. But these are the people that have the kind of experience that will never be replaced. And they are getting shoved out. And they're not getting promoted. Because of this civilian leadership. At the very top of the Department of Defense.

So, yes. As a Secretary of Defense, I would 100 percent, be able to right the course. Fix what has become so broken, within our Department of Defense. And it starts with putting the right leaders, in the right places. To put our country first.

And to really care more about our troops. Than they care about how many stars they wear on their shoulders. I obviously have very strong feelings about this. Because I still serve.

And I know the mentality impact that this is having on our military. Our morale and their readiness to be able to do their job.

GLENN: Tulsi, next time you're in Dallas, please let me know. I would love to talk more about especially the military and where we're at. Thank you so much. God bless.

TULSI: I look forward to it, Glenn.

GLENN: You bet. Buh-bye.

Nerdrotic: Why “The Acolyte” Proves Disney HATES Star Wars Fans

Nerdrotic: Why “The Acolyte” Proves Disney HATES Star Wars Fans

Disney’s newest Star Wars series, “The Acolyte,” has received some of the worst fan ratings in the franchise’s history — 14% on Rotten Tomatoes!. But is it because of racism, as the show’s star, Amandla Stenberg, suggests? Or maybe, as media critic Gary Buechler of‪@nerdrotic‬ believes, it’s because “The Acolyte” destroys Star Wars lore left and right. Gary joins Glenn to break it all down, from the “lesbian space witch” plot that somehow made Glenn defend midi-chlorians to how the show seems to prioritize DEI requirements above good storytelling: “Disney doesn't understand Star Wars fans … They hate the fans. And they actively hate Star Wars.”

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: The one and only, Gary Buechler is on. Nerdrotic is what he is known as. And he has been hysterical, on the new Star Wars series from Disney+ called The Acolyte.

I haven't seen it. But I have heard about it, and I have heard my friends talking about Gary, and his conversations on it.

Disney is actually blaming him for the loss of credibility on that new space thriller of the space lesbian witches. And YouTube has actually dinged him. And is giving him strikes.

Because he is a hatemonger. Because he doesn't like the lesbian witches in space.

Gary, you're here to answer for yourself, brother. What's happening?

GARY: I'm here to answer for my sins against Disney. Thank you for having me on, Glenn. And that is happening to -- it's not -- it's random. But it's happening to a lot of YouTubers. And commentators. And I'm not sure if you're aware.

The star, Amandla Stenberg yesterday released a diss track against Star Wars fans, and she is copyright claiming, and dinging everybody on YouTube as well for her blatant attack on the Star Wars fandom, which is always, you know, just a great strategy, which, oh, by the way, never worked.

GLENN: Yeah, I know. It's really great.

Look, I'm a star of this new show, you know, from just this legacy that have been loved for 50 years.

And I'm a big Star Wars fan. But all the Star Wars fans, they really suck a lot. They really -- they're crazy. They don't know, you know, talent when they see it. They don't know a good story line. Yeah, that's the way to attract those -- those loyal viewers, every single time.

I saw the Rotten Tomatoes.

The -- the -- the experts tell us that it's absolutely fantastic. 84 percent.

The average audience score is 14.

GARY: That's a bit high in my opinion.

GLENN: Yeah.

GARY: So --

GLENN: Tell us the story first. What is the story?

GARY: Oh, the story of The Acolyte is as you said, there is a coven of lesbian space witches, who magically conceived identical twins without a father, through a power of not the Force, the Thread. By the way, somebody needs to call Darth Povich because the twins don't look anything like mom. They don't have horns.

And they were split up at -- at the age of like -- I would say it's eight or nine. And they haven't seen each other for 19 years. Yet they have identical haircuts.

GLENN: Really? What are the odds of the hair cut thing? Really? That's crazy!

GARY: Well, you know, a good hairstylist keeps her secrets, so obviously she isn't telling either one that they're going to the same one. But...

GLENN: So before we get into more of the lesbian space witch thing, which I think America and the world has been crying out for, for a very long time.

GARY: Yes.

GLENN: Tell me who is in charge of this disaster in space. Who did they get to -- to run this?

GARY: Oh. Former personal assistant to Harvey Weinstein, Leslye Headland is the head writer on this show.

GLENN: Oh.

GARY: Yeah, I know. It's shocking. That somehow, somebody connected to Harvey Weinstein can get work.

GLENN: Yeah. I would think they would be in the federal witness protection program myself.

But they might even turn them down. The -- so she -- she found work, after being the personal assistant. So the one that was lining up all the hotel room meetings and everything else.

She's now the head writer of the lesbian space witch show.

GARY: She is. I think the term is Judas goat.

I think that's -- she got a job by begging for it on the red carpet. When she was famously asked what's your favorite Star Wars. And she said, all the Star Wars. Obviously, not knowing a single thing about it.

Later, she's come out and claimed, that she does.

And she's written this entire story, that not only passes the Bechtel test. It passes any DEI requirement with flying colors for lack of a better description.

GLENN: So go ahead.

GARY: No. Ultimately, it's -- it's the story, Glenn.

What -- what Disney loves to do is conflate whatever happens on Twitter, and any kind of complaints. With like real criticisms of this show.

And ultimately, despite all the obvious, quote, unquote, diversity. Which is just meant to exclude, well, white man. Let's be real.

And it's just a bad story, that destroys the lore. And that's what Star Wars fans are mad about. It goes back to the past and it undercuts Anakin, his entire redemptive arc, the specialness of Anakin and the prophecy. And every time they release another minute of Disney Star Wars, I can't even call it Star Wars. It's Disney Star Wars.

On D+, it destroys more lore, and that's what the fans are upset about.

The thing is, this has been going on for years now, Glenn. You can go back all the way now to the force awakens. And it seems to come to a head on this show, for some reason.

When I think it probably could come to a head five other times. Six other times.
(laughter)

GLENN: But why this one?

I mean, they -- have they just been like, you know what, we've tried suddenly to kill this thing?

Let's just finally kill it.

CHARLIE: Right. They found a way to kill something again! It's pretty amazing.

I would argue that Obi-Wan Kenobi is much worse, as far as destroying lore.

Obi-Wan, his sole purpose was to watch Luke. They had a show where he takes off on Luke twice, follows around a little baby Princess Leia, who never mentions meeting him as a kid.

And fights Darth Vader twice. So it really shouldn't surprise anybody.

But I guess this show is -- I would equate it. Oh, go ahead.

GLENN: No. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

We have a delay and I'm -- I forget, I'm so excited to talk to you about this.

The -- the -- I never thought I would be in a position of Defending midi-chlorians. But this one kind of throws all of that out. Right?

GARY: It kind of does. I personally am not a fan of midi-chlorians. And never will be.

GLENN: Oh, I hate it.

GARY: Absolutely hate it. But I guess Disney Star Wars has proven, things can always get worse. And the biggest victory comes with the prequels. Like the prequels are now looked at which more fondly than they were before, thanks to every bit of Disney Star Wars, Lucasfilm has created.

But with this show in particular, it's just hit the zeitgeist.

Because I would equate it to the marvels from last year. It was just so predictably bad. And that it still beat our very lowered expectations of how bad it would be.

And it's a show, if you see it, it's contradictory.

You have characters, contradicting each other. None of it actually makes any sense in -- for storytelling-wise. You spend your first two episodes establishing a character. Then you go into a flashback for an entire episode. That really doesn't tell you anything new.

Then the last episode was 27 minutes long. Without previously being on credits.

And nothing happens. Absolutely nothing happens. And, oh, by the way, it cost $180 million to produce.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

What is -- what has happened to Disney? I mean, besides all of the DEI crap.

They just -- the greatest storytelling company ever, cannot seem to tell a story anymore!

CHARLIE: No, they are creative bankruptcy personified now.

And they were on the top when Bob Iger decided to buy a bunch of franchises.

And everybody was calling him this massive genius when he just went on a shopping spree. And never bothered looking into what it takes to cultivate these franchises and keep them around.

What it took to keep them around for decades. You know, it's not being talked about as much. But they have a Dr. Who Show, that they're now in charge of, running around with Acolyte.

It's a race to the bottom with both of these.

GLENN: I love Doctor Who. And their -- and their --

CHARLIE: So do I.

GLENN: When did Disney buy into Doctor Who? I hate the BBC, but how did the BBC even let that happen?

GARY: Well, they were about to cancel it because the first female doctor played by Jodie Whittaker, by the way, wasn't a hit like they suspected.

GLENN: Oh, no. What a surprise.

GARY: Yeah. What a shock. So they decided to bring back Russell T. Davies, who had brought the show back in 2005. And it was extremely good and popular. And it's just proved that you can't go home again, and how much has changed in entertainment, Glenn.

I -- post-2016, you have the guy who originally brought it back. Made it a worldwide sensation.

Making the worst Doctor Who now.

And, of course, it's filled with things like pronouns.

And we had -- it's not even the first like male kiss. You know, gay kiss. In Dr. Woman WHO. But they gave this one to the doctor. And made it more prominent with the first black gay doctor. And they're in this trap now.

Instead of giving the fans what they want and just making good entertainment, they have to abide. You know, and the BBC started this much earlier on back in 2012.

The Diversity and Inclusion Initiative, which is all the DEI stuff. And it prevents them from telling a good story. They have so many rules on themselves.

So with the corporatism, it goes back to Disney. With the corporatism, they really can't take chances anymore.

And this even goes beyond woke entertainment. They just need to have this built-in audience, to spend money on anything. And in my opinion, overspend.

And what makes things insane is they paid so much money for this built-in audience, that they immediately decide to piss off. Not only with their story telling. They come out and gaslight the fandom, with a term that's a real term called fan baiting. Which is to start controversies online, so people are talking about their show.

And, again, I haven't seen an example of this ever working. But they've been doing it now for seven or eight years.

GLENN: We're talking to the Gary Buechler.

So we're talking to Gary Buechler about Nerdrotic. Or he's -- he is Nerdrotic online. We're talking about the new Disney show. You know, they omitted they had a secret gay agenda. And I really don't care. And I really don't care.

But God, stop preaching to us, and stop trying to make it look like the whole universe is, you know, lesbian space witches.

Because it just ain't. It's just not.

And, you know, I used to think, that George Lucas was the biggest problem to Star Wars. Because he would introduce things like Jar Jar Binks. Like, oh, jeez. But at least he cared about the story. At least the story of the force was consistent. And it built on each other.

Not anymore!

GARY: No. Not anymore. This was a basic story of good versus evil, and it doesn't work in the modern nihilist times that we're in. Where, oh, it's gray. And the Jedi are bad. George was a genius. George is at the top of his craft -- he -- there will never be anything like him again.

Was he the best storyteller? No, he actually had a lot of help with the original trilogy. Not much help with the prequels. But he still -- when he's putting in half the effort, he's better than everybody in Hollywood.

And he's looking much better nowadays too. Unfortunately, with Bob Iger, with Nelson Peltz and because he's an old man. Right? He's in his 80s. He doesn't want to rock the boat. He made a lot of money on this Disney deal.

A lot of money. But Disney doesn't understand Star Wars. They never will.

And more importantly, they don't understand Star Wars fans. And they actively hate them. Which has been kind of the undercurrent.

Sorry.

GLENN: No. I don't think they understand anybody.

I really don't. I don't think they understand their own Disney fans.

You know, the children in their families. They don't understand any of it.

They act as though they do hate them.

GARY: Because they do. And forgive me. This isn't Glenn's fault. This is my first radio interview. And I apologize. And thanks for having me on, Glenn.

They hate the fans. And they actively hate Star Wars. And they're now calling the fans racists and bigots for pointing out inconsistencies of lore, like normal fan stuff. Stuff that fans have done forever and will do Trevor.

And Hollywood is having a very hard time in -- in the social media era. We've seen the death of the movie star. And, quite frankly, it's because we got to know them.

And now it's based on property. Right?
And they don't want to take the time to understand these properties. And you can't use the old model of, oh, well, we can just change stuff, and nobody is going to care. No. A lot of people always cared. Now you're going to hear about it, a lot. And you have to figure this out, or you're going down.

GLENN: Gary, thank you so much for talking to us on. He's one of the largest pop culture voices on YouTube and social media. And the establishment, Disney, and everybody seems to be afraid of his voice. Because he's -- he's just speaking the truth that we all know.

What the IDF Just Said About Hamas Should "TERRIFY EVERYBODY"
RADIO

What the IDF Just Said About Hamas Should "TERRIFY EVERYBODY"

The IDF’s head spokesman, Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, recently claimed that Hamas can’t be defeated because it’s “an idea rooted in the hearts of the people,” and we can’t destroy ideas. But Glenn has a few questions: Does that mean we shouldn’t have destroyed Nazi Germany? Should we have allowed Hitler or Stalin to take over the entire world? Naziism hasn’t been eradicated…but its government has. What about theft and looting? Those are “ideas” that we haven’t defeated. Should we just stop policing? Because that worked great after the BLM riots! Hamas, just like Nazi Germany, is more than an idea, Glenn argues. It’s a GOVERNMENT that MUST be defeated.

GLENN: So this is trending on X, right now. And it's about rear admiral, Daniel Hagari.

He's the IDF spokesman. And you've seen him possibly in press conferences and interviews. And video clips. Trying to show the world what Gaza really is like.

The terror tunnels under the houses and the streets. And the yards of deep and hundreds of miles long, and filled with weapons and workshops and schools.

And the weapons and the UN facilities, the command posts under the hospitals. Missile launchers everywhere.

That's what he's been doing. And he's seemed really solid. Until last week, he was in, doing an Israeli TV interview.

Sorry, it wasn't last week. It was this week. And he said, whomever thinks it's possible to destroy Hamas, is wrong.

Hamas is an idea. Whomever thinks it's possible to make it disappear, is wrong.

What? No.

You're wrong. First of all, Hamas isn't just an idea.

Ideas grow and grow, until they become almost an entity.

This is the demonic embodiment of timeless, ageless hate. It is a culture of death and child sacrifice.

It is one of the worst evils humanity has ever produced.

And it starts with the Nazis!

Yes. Its core ideas.

But Hamas is more than just an idea.

It is like the Nazis!

That was more than Mein Kampf.

Stalin's USSR was more than Marxist ramblings. Yes, all of the ideas were at their core.

Yes. Naziism is an idea. And we haven't wiped Naziism out.

After all of this time, it's still here. And it's thriving in Hamas. And other places, in the Middle East.

Yes. Hatred dies hard. And, no, we're -- we no longer need reminders that anti-Semitism is incredibly difficult to get rid of. Thank you very much.

Yes. We still had murder. We still have violence. We still have rape. We still have theft.

Not even the Ten Commandments could do away with those. Not even God himself might have something to do with the way God created us and gave us freedom of choice. It has something to do with human nature, I'm pretty sure.

But should we have given up on eradicating the Nazi part of Nazi Germany?

Should we have stopped at Berlin's gates? You know, we can't win. Naziism is an idea. It can't be eliminated. There's really no point.

We should stop this. Should we have done that?

Should we have allowed Stalin to take the whole world? Should we end all policing, like they're starting to here in America? Because someone will always steal and murder.

I don't know if you've seen that. Where they're trying to do things like that.

It's not going real great.

I'm up here in the mountains.

The mountain West.

And we're mowing our lawn, in front. We just have field grass.

We mowed the front of the lawn around the how. So no rattle snakes are right up against the house. Well, there will always be snakes.

Yeah. But shouldn't we at least try to keep the snakes away?

Couldn't we try to -- I don't know. Take them at least remove those that are right at your -- the feet of your children? Or under your children's bed for the love of Pete?

Or will you just say, you know, there's always snakes.

Honey, I'm not going to mow the lawn. There will always be snakes.

Are you seriously suggesting that we're not better off, than we would be, had we left the Nazis in power?

Or if the USSR hadn't lost the Cold War Are you Seriously trying to say, that we wouldn't be better off? Yeah you're right.

Their ideas are not dead, and maybe they will never be.

But Nazi Germany is dead. And the world is immeasurably better for it.

It's not just an idea. It's not just an entity now.

It's a government!

Shouldn't we not try to take Hamas?

Take out every last member, we can.

Deny it both rule over territory. And the ability to harm anyone ever again?

You know, well, it's just Israel. Israel. Israel. Really? Really?

Do you think that when they're done with Israel, they'll stop with the Jews? History has shown that we can. You know why we fight communism so hard now?

Because the left infiltrated our -- our schools, our media, and everything else.

And white-washed the Soviet Union. Stalin was worse as Hitler as far as death toll.

But we don't watch documentaries about Russia all the time. Do we?

I don't know why.

But, boy, they've made quite a killing on the Nazi stuff. And maybe it's because the Nazis had snappy uniforms designed by Hugo Boss.


Maybe it's because a -- a -- a country we could relate to, was one of the scientific wonders of the world. Suddenly went dark and insane.

But we've taught it over and over again, how bad that is. And, yes. That idea still is around.

But we're not fighting a government.

This, I think was a huge boost to Hamas' morale. And that of its friends.

And poison for the Israeli morale.

Are they in a fight that the IDF itself doesn't think it can succeed and win?

If you're fighting and you don't believe that you can and will prevail, then you will not prevail.

Think about all of those who have fought and died and bled. The hundreds of thousands of Israelis, still displaced from their homes, almost nine months in.

The millions who fear and pray for their relatives and friends in uniform. The millions more who understand, that if Hamas doesn't die today. If we don't take out this snake and mow the lawns and cut the heads off of all of them we can find, it will come back tomorrow. And maybe bring some trends. And do worse than last time.

Was this message approved? By his government?

Because the government is supposed to be in control of the army.

The government said, the security cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has defined the destruction of Hamas military and governing capabilities as one of the goals of the war.

The IDF, of course, is committed to this. Okay. This should terrify everybody, not just Israelis. Because at best, this is politics.

Israelis trust the IDF, to the rank of colonel. Anybody above that, is political appointments. You know, at least as much as their military merit appointments.

They don't trust them, just like we don't trust ours.

We trust our soldiers.

But when you get on top of the Pentagon. It's all politics.

Same thing.

Except, Israel's government is in real trouble.

It may fall, the parliamentary system and all.

Netanyahu's chief rival has left the war cabinet now, during a hot war, for obviously political motives.

At worst, this is a sign of one more very serious breakdown in the West's moral fiber.

This time, it's -- it's the last useful fighting force in the area!

This isn't about refugees.

This isn't about territory.

This is about good versus evil.

Civilizational. Existential.

Not just for Israel. The West is riddled for supporters of Hamas.

And they're clones. They're marching in our own streets!

Do you think if Hamas is reenergized it's going to be good for America?

Our common enemies there are a openly and often, that they intend to take down the great Satan.

Not just the little one.

Israel is the little Satan.

We are the great Satan.

They will come for the -- as they say, the Sunday people. Not just the Saturday people.

If Israel fails in this, the world will be darker for it.

But it will not stop there.

They will come for the rest of us.

This -- I don't even. Spokesperson is all I can.

It's wrong!

We must stand.

We have to take out the monsters. And defend the house.

PROOF the DOJ Is Running Election Interference for Joe Biden | Ep 360

After Hunter Biden was found guilty of a minor gun charge, Democrats and the media were quick to use his conviction as evidence that all is “hunky-dory” with the justice system under President Joe Biden. Anyone who questioned the Left's "fair justice" narrative was branded a conspiracy theorist. Cue New York Magazine: “Hunter Biden Conviction Blows Up Republican Conspiracy Theories” and Vanity Fair: “Trump and Co. Come Up with Most Deranged Theory Yet: Joe Biden Wanted Hunter Biden to Be Found Guilty.” Never mind the fact that the only reason Hunter went to trial is because a judge blew up a secret deal between his lawyers and his dad’s DOJ that all but gave him blanket immunity on tax fraud charges. But sure, the justice system is fair and impartial! Never mind the fact that the regime’s main political opponent in the upcoming presidential race — Donald Trump — was convicted on 34 BOGUS felonies and faces three more major trials. AND never mind that Trump's ally Steve Bannon was ordered to prison for contempt for Congress and yet Biden's Attorney General Merrick Garland got away with the EXACT same crime. Glenn lays out the case that proves the weaponization of our justice system goes right to the top. Through unredacted court documents, White House visitor logs, and documents from congressional committees, the evidence trail leads directly to the Joe Biden White House. Glenn is joined by legal warrior Harmeet Dhillon, a lawyer for Donald Trump and the Center for American Liberty founder and CEO. She says the weaponization of government she’s witnessed is unprecedented and believes the end game is to trigger civil unrest in the country if Trump is jailed. “The constant fear being injected into conservatives is deliberate,” Harmeet says. But she gives four solutions for how conservatives can avoid entrapment from a government treating them as enemies of the state.

This Doctor Warned About Fauci 20 Years Ago. Will We Listen Before It’s Too Late?

Dr. Richard Ebright first warned about gain-of-function research and Dr. Fauci back in 2001. Recently, he sat down for a rare interview with Blaze Media Managing News Editor Leon Wolf to explain why we’re not out of the danger zone yet. Leon joins Glenn to break down some of the biggest warnings he gave: “Most biological attacks have not been carried out by terrorists. They were carried out by researchers with axes to grind.” So, why have our government and Fauci been so insistent about continuing gain-of-function research — and very sloppily at that? In his new article at TheBlaze.com, Leon argues that “gain-of-function” “might be fairly called a bioweapons research program.” And it didn’t end with COVID-19. Now, there’s rumors of a new bird flu spreading…
