Glenn played a video clip of Nancy Pelosi giving a speech before the United Steel Workers Union. While in the speech, she decried the influence of special interests and the contributions of foreign money that could be spent to fund political campaigns. However,
- Ms Pelosi accepted $1.5m in campaign contributions in the first 6 months of this year.
- The Democrats have received twice the amount of foreign money than have Republicans.
The Democrats have recently started demonizing the Chamber of Commerce and the source of it’s dues. The Chanber of Commerce – 96% of it’s members are small businesses.
Glen reviewed the Tides Foundation and the list of other organizations it provides financing to (Center for American Progress, Acorn, Apollo Alliance, Democracy Alliance, Color of Change, MoveOn.org, etc). He noted that a prominent contributor to many of these organizations is George Soros.
Many of these organizations have announced a boycott of Glenn’s programs.
George Soros has been involved in the currence collapse in four different countries. He usually announces his doubts about a currency and many people follow his lead and short the designated currency. Lately Mr Soros has been buying large quantities of gold and has called for a managed reevaluation of the dollar. Glenn suggests we watch for an Op-Ed from Mr Soros about the US dollar.
Mr Soros has recently contributed $1.8million to National Public Radio to fund 100 Journalist To Investigate the Impact Of Government.
Glenn invited Mr Soros to come on his program for an hour for a discussion between just the two of them – free of charge.
Glenn highlighted two candidates he felt were particularly noteworthy that are currently running.
· Justin Amash – Republican in the Michigan House of Representatives
· Allen West – Republican candidate for the House of Representatives in Florida
Glenn noted that there are 30 Congressmen that sleep in their offices because they cannot afford a home in their home district and another in Washington, D.C.
