Will Putin INTENSIFY Ukraine war as Russia's Victory Day nears?

It’s hard to predict what Vladimir Putin will do next, but one thing is certain: He does NOT want to lose the war in Ukraine and bring embarrassment to Russia…especially since a big Russian holiday — Victory Day, commemorating the Soviet Union's involvement in defeating Nazi Germany — occurs next week. So, will Putin intensify efforts in Ukraine as the celebrations near? Or will his alleged cancer surgery put everything on hold? Glenn and Stu break down all the 'ugly' possibilities from Putin...

GLENN: So Germany, said, you know, we can't -- we cannot outright ban oil from Russia. Because it would destroy Germany's economy. And it would destroy the economy on the continent as a whole.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And now he's changing his mind. And he's saying, we're going to stop all oil.

STU: They've changed their mind on quite a bit, recently. Their entire philosophy of foreign affairs for the past multiple decades.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah.

So nothing to see there, right? I mean, that's no big deal.

STU: Pretty big deal, it seems like, to me. Oh, I mean, sorry. Not a big deal. Who cares? It's way over there.

GLENN: Right. Right.

STU: The thing that's happening that is bad, is really far away.

GLENN: Right. And they changed their mind, as you said, on a lot of things lately. And what could that mean?

STU: I don't know. Certainly all good things.

GLENN: Of course.

GLENN: You know, I believe it was the philosopher Sheryl Crow who said, a change will do you good.

GLENN: Amen. So in the last few days, Russia, you know, has stopped all the gas supplies, as well. And over the weekend, they said, the risk to nuclear war is very real.

Which I like, coming from Putin, who we found out, now over the weekend, does have cancer. Does have to go under the knife. And he's going CBC -- we don't know for how long, as they do whatever, to remove the cancer from him.

So you got a guy, who is probably going to die.

Knows he's going to die.

Wants to go out with a bang. Going out under the knife.

STU: There's a tad bit of speculation there.

GLENN: That he probably will die?

STU: He will die some day I suppose. But that's not necessarily the belief, I suppose. The belief is just a minor, minor surgery.

And the fact that it would explain all of the actions that have occurred over the past couple of months, is totally separate.

GLENN: Right. And the fact that they've had 56 visits from the radiology department.

STU: The constant stream of evidence, but other than that, what do you have? Nothing.

GLENN: Okay. So he also said over the weekend, that any foreign intervention in Ukraine would provoke what he called, lightning fast response from Moscow. Now, I'm not sure what he deems as foreign intervention.

STU: I feel like, we're pretty involved. Now, we don't have troops, theoretically on the ground in the country. We don't seem to be firing these weapons ourselves. We're just giving them to the people next to us, who are firing themselves.

In all seriousness, Glenn, if you were -- how would you take this? If Russia was doing this to us, in another country?

If we were in the middle of the Iraq War, let's say, and Russia is not only doing things. Which we know they were involved in some of the --

GLENN: Yeah. Afghanistan.

STU: Afghanistan.

GLENN: We know they had involvement. But they weren't doing press conferences every day, bragging about how they were seconds weapons to -- we donated 10,000 IEDs to the resistance in Iraq. And they've killed all of these soldiers. It's going really well for them --

GLENN: Yeah, no, it would not go well.

STU: We would not accept that. We would not be thrilled about it. Now, I'm not saying that it's insane to help.

I do think it's insane to keep talking about it.

I don't understand why we're announce that go we're sending the weapons.

GLENN: I'm kind of with you on that one.

STU: Let there be an air of mystery. As to where these weapons came from.

GLENN: Yep!

STU: You know, we -- officially, Israel does not have nuclear weapons. And when we're asked about that, we say, what?

I don't even know what weapons you're talking about. What country are you talking about?

And that should be -- the appropriate response to this is, I'm not sure what you mean.

That's what -- when someone asks you, are you sending weapons into Ukraine to kill Russian soldiers, you say, I don't know what you mean? Is there something going on there?

GLENN: So they had a bloodbath this weekend in Ukraine. I mean, things did not go well in Russia, again, this weekend.

And they are just a few days away from May 9th.

STU: Yeah. Which is a big day for them.

GLENN: Big day. That's called victory day. And they don't want to have record numbers of soldiers coming home in body bags.

On victory day cause.

STU: That would be suboptimal.

GLENN: That would be suboptimal for them and for us. Meanwhile, the military -- Representative Kinzinger, said on I don't know, ABC, or whatever this weekend, something that nobody was watching.

That he has -- he's now drafted a bill, and it's gone to Congress, to authorize the president. So he has better flexibility.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: Believe me, that guy has not been flexible in a long time. If they use weapons of mass destruction of any kind, the president has a right to go to war.

STU: I totally trust Joe Biden's judgment on this important matter.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. I don't think we should just write that check.

STU: No. And I don't think that will happen, by the way. I don't think Kissinger is out on his own, for the most part. But it could change.

Look, if they actually use -- which, by the way, there's no evidence, they will use chemical weapons in Ukraine. They may. I wouldn't be -- I wouldn't be stunned if Vladimir Putin did it. Remember, even in Syria, they -- they -- they did what we did.

Right? What we're doing in Ukraine right now. Where they kind of stood around, and backed up the Syrians. But the Syrians were the ones using the chemical weapons. They don't even use them there.

Now, look, that's -- you know, it doesn't mean they won't do it here. I would not be stunned if Vladimir Putin did something else crazy.

GLENN: They do seem to be losing badly.

STU: Yeah. And one of the things interesting about the structure of this war, with us giving them all these weapons, which we can talk about, because they publicly announced it.

GLENN: Oh, have you heard about the Phoenix ghost kamakazi drills we've sent them?

Oh, I love that! Yeah. Let's get that on the front page.

STU: What's interesting here, is that Russia has a pretty strong military. But not as strong as maybe we believed beforehand.

But it is what it is. Right?

They've had a lot of their important people killed. A lot of their best soldiers killed. A lot of their best weapons utilized already. There's all sorts of rumors, of people pulling them off the streets, basically for this effort. So their military is getting worse as this goes on.

The opposite is happening with the Ukrainian military. It's getting stronger. Because we keep sending them hundreds of millions of dollars of brand-new Chinese weapons.

So their resonance is actually increasing in its ability to execute the war.

Which we've seen happen over just the past week. Where now targets inside of Russia. Inside Russian borders are being hit by Ukrainians. With missiles, and drones.

Sent to them, by Western countries.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: Again, on military installations, not targeting civilians like the Russians are doing in many places across Ukraine.

But, still, again. This is -- this is a country, who went to its people this week, and said, hey. You know, Adolf Hitler was probably Jewish. Seriously.

This is what they're saying. They do not need a lot of justification, to do all sorts of crazy things.

And they will -- clearly, would utilize this for their own propaganda purposes. And have honestly, what you would probably consider, if you were completely neutral in this battle. As a good argument, that we are involved in this. That we are helping their soldiers die. And while I agree, that they should not be able to roll over the border of Ukraine. And kill -- tons of civilians, like they're doing. I can understand why the Russian people are looking at this, and saying, wait a minute.

We just had a special military operation going on here. And now they're getting us inside our borders. With missiles. And drones from the United States of America.

It shows they want regime change.

GLENN: Well, and, you know, we've also added something really super special. There's now I think two or three countries, that are like -- I know it's Sweden and Finland. Who have now said, you know what, we really want in on that NATO thing.

Oh, that's good. That's good.

So we've got them as well.

So now that's going to make the Russians even more convinced.

I mean, I -- look, I think peace through strength. But I also think you also have to look at your enemy. And I think our enemy is wounded, and nuts. Absolutely nuts.

STU: Yeah. And think of that. We talked about this a lot in the framework of Islamic extremism, when it comes to humiliation. That factor.

That's one of the big things of Vladimir Putin and Russia. That's been his entire desire, this entire time.

They were humiliated by what happened with the fall of the Communist regime.

We need to bring ourselves back not even to communism, but back to the czar days. And he -- if this goes the way it's going, this country they thought they could roll over and be welcomed as liberators. If it goes the way it's going, he is not going to just take it sitting down.

Unless he's under from cancer surgery. That's the only way that happens.

And, man, I -- you know, the -- the possibilities here are ugly.

GLENN: You know what bothers me is the press whipping up everybody into a frenzy. That's what I don't like. And this is from a friendly conservative paper. Washington Examiner. Russia is up against World War III rhetoric.

Vladimir Putin has threatened any nation that directly intervenes in Ukraine with retaliation, via strategic weapons, strategic meaning nuclear. At the same time, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov says the risks of nuclear war are now very significant.

Russian State Media, prominent commentators, this week suggested that nuclear war with the West, wouldn't be too problematic, because the Russians would go to heaven. Whereas, Westerners would just die.

Yet, this is not the time to bow before Russian threats. Indeeds, Biden must respond to Russian aggression, forcefully. This moment is also shaping a message about what America and by association, what the free world will tolerate in the 21st century. If Biden waivers. He will be sacrificing the relative peace and cooperation, that was hard won in World War II. So he's going on, there -- this writer is going on, to Joe Biden. Kamala Harris. Mark Milley. Like their forbearers in World War II. Share a willingness to stare down the threat, and to win.

I think this is a really important discussion. But does it feel like this is a discussion that Americans are having?

STU: No.

GLENN: It feels like it's happening in the ether up with elites. And we're not really engaged in it.

STU: I think a lot of people just see this as this -- you know, this thing that's far over there. And not really our concern. We need to be worried concerned about what's going on here.

And we do! There's a lot to worry about here. We have a completely incoherent president. Massive inflation. Border situation is out of control. CRT. Gender stuff. All of this is real and a big problem. When you talk about the entire human civilization, and its existence. This problem is right there.

GLENN: And especially since, you know, you never want an emergency to go to waste.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: The things that can be enacted and done, during a massive war, are staggering.

And you never come back from them. When you're looking at a party, that is acting as reckless as they are, not listening to the average person American. Not watching the poll numbers. And they are just going over the cliff, with our finances, with our dollar. With freedoms. All of these things, these chickens are coming home to roost.

And what is their plan?

STU: Yeah. It's scary, because if everyone acts somewhat reasonably here. Meaning like logically, you could see this escalating out of control. Each side has reason to believe the other side is acting aggressively.

You know, remember the Breonna Taylor situation, where she was shot with one of the Black Lives Matters things.

When you look at that situation in-depth, one thing you notice is both sides acted really logically for what happened in the moment. The police came to the door. They had a warrant to go in.

They believed something was going on. They -- they banged through the door. The guy has a legal permit. He wakes up in the middle of the night. What are you going to do in that situation? You're going to shoot the guy, who is breaking into your room.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: The police officer gets shot. Well, of course, the police officer is going to fire back into the room. And then Breonna Taylor gets hit.

GLENN: Totally logical on both sides.

STU: On both sides, every action, except for the idea that the warrant should not have been presented that way. That was a decision made before the interaction happened.

GLENN: Right.

STU: Kind of the same thing here. Russia makes an irrational decision, in going into Ukraine. But it's setting off a bunch of -- a series of actions of people acting relatively logically for the moment. That keeps escalating the situation. That's where real danger lies.

What This FLAMETHROWING Robot Dog Means for the Future

Flamethrower company Throwflame has released what could possibly be the coolest and most terrifying product of the year: A flamethrowing robot dog named “Thermonator.” And perhaps just as surprising is its price tag: just over $9,000! Glenn, Stu, and Jason discuss whether this is “the ultimate home security device,” despite being made for things like forest fire control. “You walk up and you’re like, ‘Terminator! Terminator!’” The future is here…and it’s got a flamethrower on its back!

GLENN: Yeah. So I want to show you, I think this is the ultimate home security device, okay? It's a little pricey.

But watch this.
(music)

This is the new robot flame throwing dog.
(laughter)

STU: No.

GLENN: Yeah. So it's a -- it's a robot that just walking around, is enough to scare the hell out of them.

STU: Laser sight.

GLENN: Laser sights. It can prowl the property at night. And it's made for like forest fighting.

Or, you know, war. But it also has a flamethrower strapped to its back.

STU: What the heck?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: There's fires all around it. Did this thing start the fires?

GLENN: No. No. No. This will cause a back burn for forest fires.

STU: Oh, okay.

GLENN: So they sent it out. And they sent it out. And they're watching on their -- watch this.

VOICE: The destroyer of worlds.

GLENN: Okay. That's a little spooky. Look at that thing. Just throwing flames.

STU: That's awesome. Oh, my gosh.

JASON: And that's not even very imaginative. Imagine Hope Hicks.

GLENN: You put that control into the hands of some hope hicks, and they are --

STU: It just jumped.

GLENN: It jump ed. It is an amazing --

STU: How much did this thing cost?

GLENN: You ready? How much did you think? How much did you think?

STU: $100,000.

PAT: I was going to say 20.

GLENN: Nine. Nine grand for a flame-throwing robot dog.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: I want one.

STU: We can finance that. Right?

Go to your bank. I need some financing for a flame-throwing dog.

GLENN: Can you imagine if you had, one of those, like a little box in your yard. And someone comes up to the door you don't like. And just the box opens up. And this dog and this robot dog stands up and puts a laser on you.

I don't think you knock on the door.

STU: I think you knock and you leave.

GLENN: You leave quickly. For nine grand, guys. You could have a robot, flame-throwing dog.

STU: It just seems like there isn't a better purchase on the market.

GLENN: No. Our wives might disagree with us.

STU: You think?

GLENN: Maybe. Maybe. I know mine would.

STU: Well, remember, if you get a normal dog, you have to feed it.

This thing you don't have to feed. You're saving money there.

How long until it pays for itself?

GLENN: You wanted a dog. You wanted a dog.

STU: What about --

GLENN: Your motorcycle is 50 grand. You can have a flame-throwing robot dog for nine.

STU: Or for 59, you can have a flame-throwing dog on the back of your motorcycle.

That's the way to do it.

GLENN: Oh, really? Really? Mr. Biker, you have a problem with me.

Take it up with the robot dog, with the flamethrower.

JASON: I can have ten of those, actually. Now, imagine that. Motorcycle or ten of those robot dogs.

STU: You're not great at math.

GLENN: No. Yeah. That would be 90 who can't understand.

STU: Less than six. You definitely get five. You get five.

Maybe they have a six pack discount.

JASON: Six pack. Imagine like a pack of those bad boys, showing up.

STU: Seriously, how terrifying that would be, if you came around the corner of a parking lot, and six of those walked up to you?

GLENN: Take the flamethrower off. Take the flamethrower off.

Just the dog would freak you out.

STU: Honestly you could get -- I wonder if you could get one without the flame-thrower for five grand. Then put a fake one on the back.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Get two.

GLENN: Or get two of them.

STU: Imagine being surrounded by those things.

JASON: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: That scared. My German Shepherd is terrifying. Terrifying.

STU: But you can't be talked into -- in the back of your mind. Some dogs are nice. Right?

I've been around your dog. Your dog is very nice to me.

I don't know if it will be nice to an intruder. My guess is no.

One of those things. There's never been an indication that any of those are nice. Boston-style dog walking up to you, you don't start petting it.

GLENN: Terminator. Terminator.

JASON: That is the future. That's where it's going.

GLENN: It is. The war will be using that.

S.W.A.T. teams will be using that. You won't see a cop. Honestly, I mean, you think cops eat doughnuts now. Wait until they have robots.

JASON: Have you seen combat footage in Ukraine? That shows where it's going. You see troops on the ground, doing normal troop stuff.

But then all of a sudden, you'll hear. It's the drones coming in, chasing people.

STU: Those are tanks in Ukraine. They are getting rid of them. Because they're all getting taken out by drones.

GLENN: Have you seen the fastest drone yet.

This thing -- you look it up on YouTube. This thing is just like. You just barely see it.

JASON: That's incredible.

GLENN: It's like, 200 some miles an hour.

It's crazy.

STU: I don't mean to the emperor arguing in favor of the clone wars. Isn't this probably maybe a good thing?

The fact that maybe humans aren't on the battlefield killing each other. And it's a bunch of robots killing each other instead?

GLENN: It may make war likely to happen.

STU: That's true too.

GLENN: Because you could go in. If you're a bad country, and you don't care how many people are killed on the other side. Your people aren't being killed, look out. Get the robot dog.

How Medical Students are Being Turned into LEFTIST ACTIVISTS

Unfortunately for America’s medical future, left-wing propaganda is fast becoming the RULE in medical school classrooms, rather than the exception. Glenn dives into the disturbing reality of what our medical students are learning in America’s top schools. Diversity, equity, and inclusion training is everywhere. So is antiracism and activism. The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences is even teaching a course on “Confronting U.S. History.” In fact, 23 of America’s top 25 top medical schools have antiracism instruction as a core part of their curriculum! This could have a major and devastating effect on our medical system in the future, Glenn warns. But in fact, it has already started…

Gen Z'er Understands NOTHING About Parenting

Glenn reviews 3 clips that reveal how clueless some Gen Z'ers are. In one clip, a college student is upset that she can't attend her graduation ceremony because of her (probably "mostly peaceful") protesting. Then, there was another protester who praised North Korea for standing with Palestine and Hamas over Israel. But the icing on top of the cake was a young woman who complained about her "narcissistic parents" showing up to every one of her events as a child. But Glenn, Pat, and Stu - all seasoned parents - lay down the truth: That woman has no idea how much her parents sacrificed to be there for her. They didn't do it for themselves. They did it for HER. So, who's the narcissist here?

GLENN: Oh, man. We're just getting back. Pat looks a little peaky today. Because he's at the Madonna concert. We all through town.

STU: What a night.

PAT: Man.

GLENN: It's not worth what we paid for. Which was free. Free.

PAT: We paid zero. Zero dollars.

GLENN: Still a little disappointing at that price. Welcome, Pat. How are you?

PAT: Oh, tired. You know, just getting back from Rio and all. But other than that, doing good.

GLENN: Yeah. That's the only thing that could get you to Rio, too. I'm like, hey, let's go to Rio. And you're like, eh. And I said, Madonna is doing a free concert on the beach.

PAT: Oh, man. Now I'm there.

STU: She might have a bikini on.

PAT: Oh, and just 65 years old. And still as hot as ever.

STU: Maybe not as ever.
(laughter)

PAT: Hmm.

STU: It is --

GLENN: Oh, no. Stop. It's hurting.

STU: She really wants to try to pretend she's 23 still.

PAT: Just let me vomit, Lord, please.

Just let me. Okay. I have something here, that I think is -- well, it's going to cheer you up.

PAT: Good.

GLENN: Two students. Two students.

First, cut four. College student who is a little upset. She was a protester.

And she can't go to her graduation now. Here she is.

PAT: No.

GLENN: I'm being restricted from a lot of things right now. That I didn't expect to be. For standing up something I believe in.

I have family coming in, who I have to let them know. You know, not come to my graduation ceremonies. I'm just disappointed.

I mean, I'm a 2020 high school grad. So I wasn't able to walk then.

GLENN: Oh.

VOICE: And so, you know.

PAT: You know.

VOICE: Here it is. I'm not able to walk now.

GLENN: Yeah. Just walk to a dentist.

VOICE: You said you were standing up for a cause. Would you do it again?

VOICE: I mean, yeah. I would. I was -- I was doing what I believed was right. And I still believe it to be right. So much harm has been done to all of these people.

PAT: All of those people.

VOICE: Already.

GLENN: Give me the people that were raped and stabbed and those people.

PAT: No. Not those people. The other people. The other people who were told to leave, and then they airdropped food.

And then --

GLENN: And then turned on those people. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

PAT: Yeah. Those people.

GLENN: Those people. Man. Now, parents, how many times have we said this?

Now, you're going to have to pay the price. Okay?

You're paying the price.

Being a parent. Because you showed up, for all of your kids' activities. Cut five.

VOICE: Am I the only one whose narcissistic parent would show up to every single event I was ever involved in. This is one of those weird ones. Where I always felt like speaking about this behavior negatively, could be perfect saved in the wrong way.

Like my parent was just being supportive. And how lucky was I to have a parent who always showed up. Boo-hoo, your parent was there for you.

But did you also feel like sometimes it was a bit excessive? Especially if it was a bit more of a repetitive thing, where maybe I was doing the same thing on multiple days in a row.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Cupcake. Just let me just say this.

Yes. We did find it very, very repetitive. Going to every single one of your performances, everyone. Even when you were doing the same thing.

Yes. But we did it, anyway, to show you support.

You narcissistic little piece of crap.

PAT: Hmm.

GLENN: We -- we made effort, to make sure we didn't miss any of them.

Maybe we should have missed some of them.

Maybe we should have.

You know what, go outside and play. Come back when the lights are out.

We'll worry about you. If you don't if come back by 6:00 the next morning.

I mean, you cannot win.

PAT: No, you can't.

GLENN: This generation is so narcissistic, no matter what you did, you showed up, you didn't show up.

STU: Yeah. They're going to complain about it either way. Because there is obviously a thing that has been talked about. The helicopter parenting thing. Is that the complaint here? Just showing up for an event isn't helicopter parenting.

GLENN: No. Showed up for every event. Every event. Every ball fame.

STU: That seems great. Content you want fans at your it became.

PAT: No. It seemed like you wanted to support them. But that's not it. Apparently.

GLENN: You're getting something out of it. You're trying to make yourself look like --

PAT: This makes me look really good. If I go to all your stupid events that I don't want to go to!

GLENN: What you're really doing. Come on. At least guys can be honest about this.

I don't know if women can. There's about half the events, you're like, oh. Right?

PAT: How many recitals do you want to go to? Where you see your kid or your grand kid, for five minutes. And then it's thee hours long.

It's like, okay.

I'd chew my arm out to get out of that.

GLENN: Oh, I had to go to the Nutcracker. The Nutcracker every year. And Cheyenne was in it for like, I don't know. Thee minutes. Look, there she is, dressed as a sugar plumb.

Then that's it. Then I have to watch the rest of it. I could have missed those, but we didn't.

STU: Because you're bad parents, I can't believe you're saying this.

GLENN: Really?

You didn't go. You just skipped some of this stuff.

STU: They never have events at the casino, which is where I am.

It's not my fault.

I mean, look, there are lines too. I think Pat will at least be able to agree with this. It's like, you know, there are certain things that you like, that your kids do.

Like I really like basketball. So I love going to watch my kids play. My daughter is in gymnastics. It's really fun to watch her do her events in gymnastics. I freaking love it.

GLENN: I love it too.

STU: Then there's 9,000 other people going.

PAT: Then it's not as good.

GLENN: I say to my wife all the time, honey, we're sitting in the back. We could leave. We could leave, right now.

Nobody would ever know.

It's not right, we have to support all the other -- no, we don't

No, we don't. We're there to support our kids. Not all those. I don't like those kids. I don't know those kids. But I don't like them. Because I generally don't like other people's kids. Nobody does. If you're honest, nobody likes other people's kids.

PAT: I think that's accurate. That's accurate.

GLENN: Yes. Thank you, Pat. Thank you.

PAT: And I certainly don't like that kid, that we just heard from.

STU: Yes.

PAT: I'm not going to any of her events.

GLENN: Yeah. What would you say if that was your kid?

PAT: Oh, man. I would be.

GLENN: If you saw that?

PAT: I would be a little upset, I believe.

STU: Because you don't realize it when you're a kid, that your parents have lives. Right?

PAT: Yeah. Right.

STU: You don't think of it, as like they're canceling something that they could be doing to come to your thing. You just think of it as that's their job, and they're supposed to be there.

GLENN: I'm going to say something I always hated when I heard it. My mother used to say it. And I know once it's uttered, it happens. Because it's happened to me.

I hope that girl gets four children, exactly like her. Then she'll know. Then she'll know.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I was just trying to help. I was just trying to show you support.

PAT: Problem is, she's so narcissistic, she won't have any children. It will just be about her.

STU: That's probably a good decision.

GLENN: I love that. I love that. If you're narcissistic, please, don't have children.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You're going to school, and you're battling that nonsense. I don't want you to have children. You would be a horrible, horrible parent.

PAT: These are the kind of idiots that are supporting Hamas.

GLENN: Yeah. It's all about -- it's me, me, me. And all about them.

How could you possibly be.

You're so clueless.

How could you possibly be in the LGBT community.

And standing up for Hamas.

PAT: It doesn't make any sense at all.

GLENN: It doesn't make any sense, unless you're so blind and narcissistic. That all you have to think about is me and my gayness. And I will bring credibility to this movement. It's all about narcissism.

STU: And these stances don't even make sense with each other.

PAT: They don't. They've all been combined here, for some reason. They've all kind of melded into one.

STU: And that's an overall politics thing.

If your team tells you, that you're supposed to support this, then you do for, what? Seventy percent of America.

Like that's terrifying.

GLENN: But wait a minute. Wait a minute. You're saying, it doesn't -- could we please go back?

Pat hasn't heard this. You just go back to cut 45, please. He's saying this doesn't make sense, Pat.

Listen to this.

VOICE: Which side does North Korea support? Palestine or Israel? Discuss.

VOICE: Palestine.

VOICE: It is Palestine.

They have actually never recognized the state of Israel. They have always upheld the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and resistence. And this is beyond moral and rhetorical support.

They have actively armed and trained Palestinian resistance for decades. That includes the PLO, the (inaudible), have trained troops by the DPRK.

PAT: Wow. Isn't that great?

STU: Yay!

GLENN: Now, if you were listening to Friday's show, or Pat a couple weeks ago.

You heard the guy we had on. That said the United States government, took the Malaysian airliner. Opened up a wormhole. And sucked that plane through it.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: I would like them to prove that reality, with all of these stupid moronic kids.

Just open it up. At a college campus. Suck them out into space.

PAT: Yeah. We don't necessarily have a destination. They are just sucked into the wormhole.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: There they go. Well, I don't know where they went.

GLENN: That's weird.

STU: You will be shocked, by the way. If you're listening on the radio. Not seeing that clip. She is wearing a mask outdoors while saying all this. Of course.

GLENN: Yes. And looking over her mask to read.

She doesn't know this stuff.

STU: Reading this --

GLENN: She was either given this stuff. Or she went online. And she went, who else supports the Palestinians?

STU: She's like North Korea's Corrine Jean-Pierre. She is reading every word she's saying.

Propaganda.

GLENN: You know who else is with the Palestinians?

Hitler. Hey. That's not. That doesn't help you really.

How Trump’s Trials Could HELP Him in the 2024 Election

Former president Donald Trump is facing multiple legal trials during an election year. But despite the trials hurting his ability to campaign, Senator J.D. Vance believes they’re actually “really helping Trump politically.” Sen. Vance joins Glenn to explain how Trump is turning these legal attacks, including the hush money “sham trial” in New York, into effective campaigning tools. In fact, they may have even allowed Trump to say the “line of the year.” Sen. Vance also weighs in on the rumors that he could be Trump’s VP pick and why one of Biden’s recent actions “should offend every person in this country.”

GLENN: So let's talk a little bit about Trump and the trial. This trial is -- is more than just a kangaroo court.

This is -- there's nothing to this trial.

How do you think it's going?

J.D.: Well, I think it's -- I mean, the only thing that really matters, of course, is the court of public opinion.

Because such a sham trial.

I don't think it will hold up on appeal. The basic argument here is that he falsified documents in order to commit a crime. They can't even identify which crime he allegedly committed. It's very hard to imagine anything like that can hold up on appeal.

Now, look, it is highlighting how corrupt the justice system has gotten in certain parts of our country.

Right?

So you have the number three person is Biden's DOJ, who jumps ship and goes and joins a local prosecutor office to participate in this. By the way, he also turned down a DNC paid consultant.

Then you have, of course, the Soros-funded prosecutor who brings the case, being presided over by as literal campaign donor to Biden Harris, who is preventing Donald Trump from even speaking on the merits of the case or in the court of public opinion.

So I think it's really helping Trump politically. Which again, I think it's all that matters. Because those people, who have any sense of fairness, recognize that this is a sham trial.

And so long as it's helping Trump get elected. I think that's what matters most.

GLENN: I will tell you, I think the line maybe of the year.

We're not finished yet. But I think the line maybe of the year. Is Donald Trump when he came out. I think it was yesterday.

And said, the Constitution is well worth me going to jail for.

It's -- it's worth more than me trying to stay out of jail.

So put me in jail. And I thought, wow!

That -- I mean, that is a strong, strong stance.

VOICE: By the way, driving home the stakes, doesn't it?

This guy is literally trying to prevent him from speaking. Right? The Democrats have made this a major political issue. The Democrats are funding off of it.

You know, the Biden Harris campaign sitting around, fundraising emails. Oh, isn't it funny that Donald Trump's (inaudible) sent us money. And yet, the judge is preventing Trump from participating in what is right now, the most lively political debate, of -- of the country.

So it really -- again, I think just drives home how much these guys have lost their mind.

And, you know, you -- I have even seen polls here that Biden -- people who plan to vote for Joe Biden recognize it's fundamentally a sham trial.

Now, here's the crazy thing about this, Glenn, is I do a lot of hostile media. You know, it's one of the things I like to do, is sort of take our case to the other side. And I've sat in green rooms with people, who months ago, were angry at Alvin Bragg for bringing this case.

Because it was such a weak case. Now that it's the only case that's actually gone to trial. Because the rest of them have fallen apart.

You see the media sees them treating it as legitimate. I don't think anyone believes them, right? There's just no credibility here, and everything further erodes their ability is in my view, a good thing.

GLENN: So let me ask you a couple of other questions.

I know we have a limited time. Let me first stop with the campus funding protesting.

Biden holding back aid, bullets to Israel.

Isn't this exactly what Donald Trump is impeached for.

He held back congressionally approved javelins from Ukraine.

And now, Biden is holding back ammunition, from Israel.

What's the difference?

J.D.: There isn't any difference. Of course. The only real difference is, I think that Donald Trump actually was engaged in diplomacy and was negotiating with the Ukrainian and also other folks in the region, about how much aid they should be providing. Of course, it shouldn't just be America. Whether you support Ukraine or not. What's different about this, is I think you're taking one of those few truly bipartisan issues in this country, that we should be supporting our allies. Israel.

And you're allowing it to be dictated bit far left. Now, I have a little bit of a different take on this, Glenn.

I think what Biden is doing is really killing two political birds with one stone here.

One, as I've been warning for months. We don't have enough ammunition to send to Ukraine and Israel simultaneously. We have to pick one.

Well, the Biden administration I think, has picked the corrupt Ukrainian regime over our long-term allies.

But simultaneously, he's going to his left flank, and saying, the reason I'm doing this, is because Bibi is bad. And because we don't like the way that Bibi is prosecuting the war. So he gets to tell his left flank what they want to hear, while covering for the fundamental failure of his foreign policy.

It's one of the reasons, Glenn, it was such a bad idea for Republicans to give Biden this security supplemental. It's such a big bill. That it sort of allows Biden to hide his priorities. And sort of have his cake. And eat it too.

GLENN: The other thing I want to talk to you about. Is the health care that is now going to illegal migrants.

How does this president, get away with so much executive power?

That they're -- nobody gave him the authorization to do this.

Nobody gave him the authorization to spend all of this money.

Nobody gave him the authorization to relieve or to forgive, quote, all those loans.

And tie them to the back of the taxpayer.

This is a very important concept in our -- in our Constitution.

It's why congressmen have to be reelected every two years. Because we want to -- them to answer for the money they just spent or allowed to be spent.

What --

J.D.: Well, you're right, Glenn. We know at this point, bide citizen a tyrannical president that will violate the law. Does and it is a violation of the law.

But I don't want to let us off the hook here. We should know at this point, when we appropriate Joe Biden, a big chunk of money. He will sometimes violate the law in the way he actually distributes it. And this means, Congress will actually have to take a little bit more assertive of a role. Has to be willing to cut off certain appropriations, not by writing these blank checks.

This is really important, Glenn.

Congress increasingly, you know, again, with its massive security supplemental. When you write Joe Biden a check. You can't go to the American people. And say, well, he's doing this illegally.

But that's true. You know he will do it illegally. So we have to be more careful about how we give this guy authority in the first place.

I have to say, Glenn Beck. This giving health care to illegal Americans, it should offend every single American. We have a social safety net in this country.

Medicaid exists for impoverished people to help pay their medical bills. If you allow folks who cannot be in this country to begin with, who are here illegally, to literally take from the mouths of American poor children, so that we can fund their health care. Then whose side are you really on?

And I think it's becoming increasingly clear. That Biden does not like the people who currently make up the citizenry of this country.

And he's trying to change the way the country operates.

The way that we distribute resources.

The way that we vote. And that's what his illegal immigration push is all about.

GLENN: Well, I just can't believe that those at the very bottom of the scale.

The ones that the Democrats have said the Democrats care about forever.

The black families that are trapped in Chicago. And are barely making ends meet.

How are they to view the government, when they're not getting -- you know, they're not being put up in a hotel someplace. They're not getting all these perks.

And yet, we're doing it for people who just came here.

I mean, if I were on the receiving end. Or on the need. End of this. And I was a citizen.

I would be like, dude, what are you doing? You never did this for me. You never did this for my family, as we were struggling.

J.D.: Absolutely. They just came here, and a lot of them came here illegally, Glenn. We have veterans who can't afford healthcare who are sleeping on park benches. At the same time, we're handing out free health care, to people, who violated the law, to come to this country, in the first place.

It's completely disgraceful.

And I think a lot of people should be looking around and saying, who does Joe Biden actually stand for?

Right? The Democrats say they care about the little guy.

Let me send you a brief story, Glenn. I have a new good friend of mine, who is getting up there in years.

Who is now eligible for Social Security. He basically found out that there are a number of illegal aliens, who have used his Social Security number to get a whole host of benefits, including Social Security benefits.

When he went to the government and said, hey, I would like to know who is using these things. So I could report it to the police. They basically told him, no. We don't reveal people's personal information, even illegal aliens who are committing Social Security fraud.

This is the kind of country that Joe Biden has created, where the very things that we do as a country, to help the least fortunate, are being given away to illegal aliens instead of mesh citizens.

I cannot stand it.

GLENN: Hmm.

JD. Thank you so much. Senator J.D. Vance from Ohio.

Always good to have you on. Thank you.
