Trucker group plans to shut down D.C. for 3 days… and Glenn supports them?

A group of truckers is reportedly planning to shut down Washington, D.C. for three days straight beginning on October 11 to protest “corruption against the Constitution.” A Facebook page for “Truckers To Shut Down America” has gained more than 16,000 likes, though it remains unclear how many truckers actually plan to take part in the event.

“There's a story here that I would really like to get behind as a show, as a series of shows,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I think that we should find out, first about these truckers and then stand behind them. This is the number one store on TheBlaze right now.”

According to the group’s Facebook description: “The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!”

A YouTube video posted by “Kevin Allen” on the “Truckers To Shut Down America” Facebook page, the event is labeled as a general “strike” by the American people against the federal government and its “bulls**t.”

(Warning: Some strong language)

“Facebook provides additional information behind the action, which ranges from universal health care to the I.R.S. Scandal to Benghazi,” Glenn said. He proceeded to read through the objectives of the protest:

“‘Remove the president from office for high crimes of treason and misdemeanors. We want a congressional hearing on Benghazi and seal team 6. Lois learner needs to be put in jail. No amnesty. Remove all Muslims from our government that do not uphold the constitution.’ That's the only one that I kind of think is a little reckless here. But it does say, ‘does not uphold the Constitution.’ I would not make it Muslims. I would make it any person that doesn't uphold the Constitution. ‘Remove Eric Holder from office for crimes against the people and the Constitution. Last but not least, the price of fuel.’ Do you agree with those? Do you get behind those?”

Pat and Stu both agreed that the trucker’s list of demands is not unreasonable. Glenn quickly pointed out, however, the under appreciated power of the trucking industry in this country.

“After September 11, if you remember, Jeffy and Stu, I said, ‘We don't need Department of Homeland Security. We need to see something from the truckers.’ The truckers are the ones moving. They know what's going on. They see what's happening and what's moving across the country,” Glenn said. “And you know, you get the truckers to strike, you stop the American economy. You really do. You stop it.”

“Do you know how many times your grocery store is restocked? Five times a day on average. You stop trucks from coming into grocery stores for three days. There's nothing left. There's nothing left. That's why people, when we talked about food insurance and everything else,” he continued. “We say you don't know how fragile the system is. You stop trucks for three days in this country. You won't recognize your stores because everything is going to shut down because the truckers come in and replenish everything. Yeah, they could have a huge impact. And the ones who are really impacted by the price of gasoline and everything else are the truckers… They work way too hard. Way too hard.”

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

Population: 923,484

12. North Dakota

Population: 780,588

13. Alaska

Population: 732,984

14. Washington DC

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
