Apparently, men think about the Roman Empire a lot — often in a positive light. But that's NOT the solution, Glenn warns. We don't need a Caesar to fix our problems. We need to start standing for the Constitution again. Glenn reviews some of the insane news of the day, from Attorney General Merrick Garland's infuriating Congressional testimony to the Biden administration's decision to go after a German family who fled to America for religious freedom. "I'm not sure I know how to help anymore," Glenn says. "The hour is growing very, very late." But there is hope. Conservatives just need to get their act together.

GLENN: Honest to God, America. What is wrong with you?
How is this not clearly a problem? Look at what is happening in our court system. Look at what Massey has to say yesterday to our attorney general.
You've seen this yet? Here's the first clip from Massey and our attorney general, the chief law enforcement officer of our country. Listen to this.
VOICE: That was your answer to questions made two years ago. When I said, how many agents or assets of the government were present on January 5th and January 6th, and agitating in the crowd, to go into the Capitol. And how many went into the Capitol? Can you answer that now?
VOICE: I don't know the answer to that question.
VOICE: Oh, last time, you didn't know how many there were, or there were none?
VOICE: I don't know any of those questions, if there were any. I don't know how many, or whether there are any.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh.
VOICE: I think you may have just purged yourself, that you don't know that there were any. You don't know that there were any?
VOICE: I have no personal knowledge on this matter.
VOICE: You've had two years to find out.
And the day -- by the way, that was in reference to Ray Epps.
And yesterday, you indicted him. Isn't that a wonderful coincidence on a misdemeanor?
Meanwhile, you're sending grandmas to prison. You're putting people away for 20 years, who weren't really filming.
Some people weren't even there. Yet, you got the guy on video. Saying, he's going into the Capitol.
Directing people into the Capitol, before the speech ends. He's at the site of the first breach. You have all the goods on him. Ten videos, and it's an indictment for a misdemeanor?
The American public isn't buying it.
GLENN: Okay. Listen, this is what he said about that question in 2021, listen.
VOICE: I was hoping today to give an opportunity to put to rest the concerns that people have, that there were federal agents, or assets of the federal government, present on January 5th, and January 6th.
You can tell us, without talking about particular incidents. Or particular videos. How many agents or assets of the federal government were present on January 6th.
Whether they agitated to go into the Capitol. And if any of them did.
VOICE: So I will not violate this norm of the rule of law.
I won't comment on an investigation that is ongoing.
How do you -- how do you investigate January 6th, and you don't -- you haven't even asked, if we had any agents on the ground?
How is that even possible!
How is that possible? Is anyone else, beside people who voted differently than Joe Biden. Is anyone else saying, wait a minute.
Ray Epps, he was on the FBI's most wanted list. Then they removed his picture after a few days.
Then when people said, wait a minute. Who is this guy? Others identified him as Ray Epps.
He then becomes no big deal.
The New York Times does this love letter to Ray Epps.
He's on videotape. Saying, we have to go in there. We have to go in, tomorrow.
We go in. We have videotape of him actually looking at one guy, who is standing at the gate, who is not trying to open it up.
And he leans in, and whispers in his ear. And pretty soon, not long after the whisper in the ear, within seconds, that guy starts shoving the gate open. And letting everybody in.
And Ray Epps actually said in testimony, I was just telling him, is this isn't you. The cops are our friends. Don't do this.
Because he was peaceful before.
And this guy is now getting a misdemeanor.
He's everything. The Biden administration says, is a problem.
He's everything. All of the people, that were there, around him, when he was giving the speech, the night before. Everybody around him. Trump supporters. Real Trump supporters, were shouting, fed, fed. Fed.
Because they sensed that this was a setup.
Does anybody have a problem with that?
Does anybody have a problem with what Garland is doing, slow walking every investigation, in Washington. And then putting grandmas in jail.
Look, we don't usually prosecute people, who lie on their form.
You know, for their gun. Excuse me, what?
This administration? This one, isn't looking for every opportunity to put somebody in jail.
A white guy?
Huh. I -- I -- I'm not sure I know how to help anymore. I really don't.
I'm having a very difficult time, because the hour is growing very, very late.
And I don't see the movements. You know what, here's what I see. Here's what I see. I see people if we go to very frustrated, and they're going, you know what, get them.
I see that. I see guys apparently talking about the Roman empire all the time. I don't even know what that is.
Stu, how many times do you think of the Roman empire a day?
STU: I mean, zero. But I have read two Marcus Aurelias in the past year. So that is a -- I would like style zero. That was my initial response. But actually more than that.
GLENN: My answer is never. But I spell never N-E-5-E-R. I mean, this is ridiculous. And we need a new Caesar Day. No, we don't. No, we don't. Where are the people that are learning the Constitution? Where are the people that are standing for the Constitution?
You have brave whistle-blowers now. But nobody seems to care about what the whistle-blowers are saying. And these whistle-blowers are credible.
You know their names.
They're taking the heat.
It's not, like, when you hear what this whistle-blower. We won't tell you who it is. Even though, everybody knows who it is already. And that makes it suspect.
We're not going to tell you, that that's him. Because he has stuff, that you won't believe.
And then where is the stuff?
Just exactly what happened to Ken Paxton.
Do you know that the governor yesterday.
Well, let me just tell you this one. Let me just tell you this one. This one shows me how deep the problems are.
Do you remember talking about a couple from Germany, who had seven kids?
The Romakey family.
And they came over here. This was like 2013. And they came over here, because the state said they had to teach their kids.
I don't remember what it was. And they were like, no. That violates our religious point of view.
No. We can't do that. And so they were going to take the kids away. And so they decided to come over here.
And after a battle with the Obama administration, they were allowed to stay here in Virginia. Do you know what the Biden administration just did. After leaving these people alone, for ten years, give theming hope, that America was a place that they could actually have freedom of religion without any notice or anything.
They just called them up. And said, by the way, you have to return to Germany, or you're out.
We have two and a half to 3 million people in the last two years. Coming across our border. And yet, you have this family, in Virginia. That is peaceful, kind, productive.
All they want, is to teach their kids about God.
And our government -- this shows you, how much money and how deep this goes.
When you have time, in these days to go,, oh, you remember that family? Get them.
The governor in Pennsylvania yesterday, just signed a new order, where now you can be registered to vote with your driver's license. Okay. Except, that's not what the law says.
The governor cannot do that. The legislature has to.
And they currently have a system, where you go to get your driver's license. And you have to check a box. I want to register my vote now, or not.
All you have to do is check a box!
That's too much work. They took the box off. The government did, by himself.
Disregarding the Constitution of Pennsylvania. Don't worry. They can do it.
I -- I have got something prepared for next hour. That is the answer. But I don't -- I don't think. I'm not sure if people want the answer.
I'm not sure. I'm not sure.Ing I think so many people have buried their heads. And the people who are actually aware of it are like, what are we going to do? What are we going to do?
I'm so close to just saying, get to the mountains, gang. Get to the mountains.
Let God sort all this stuff out. It will be ugly. It will be ugly. Because we refuse to turn back to him. After September 11th, well, we learned our lesson. Oh, God, help us. Oh, God help us. And we actually meant, oh, God, help us.
Eh. We went our own way. And now look at where we are.
I pray for you every day. I ask that you would pray for me. And my staff. And for guidance. I don't even -- I'm getting to the point where, I don't know what is true anymore.
I don't know what is true. I mean, I've been duped and fooled so many times, in so many ways. That I'm like, and, you know, I believe in the best in people.
I believe in the people of America. I believe in you.
And I know we can turn this around. I mean, wonder, where the hell are our armies are?
And I mean armies of even bureaucrats.
Of think tank people. Who are actually doing something.
These people have thought this through for years.
This is not happening through happenstance. It's not because Biden sucks.
This is a plan!
Where is ours?
Where is our -- where is the group that is -- we can coalesce around?
