Matt Bevin: There is a "hunger for change" in Kentucky

On the heels of Ben Sasse’s big win in the Nebraska Republican primary on Tuesday, Glenn is hopeful the momentum will carry over to next Tuesday’s Kentucky primary in which Matt Bevin faces off against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). On radio this morning, Bevin joined Glenn to discuss the waning days of his campaign and why he remains encouraged despite the poll numbers.

Bevin has been on the campaign trail for a number of months now, and Glenn asked him what the feeling on the ground has been.

“Frankly, we are very apathetic as a nation. Certainly, I don't think Kentucky is unique, but there are many people who are frustrated, who think we must do better, something has to change, but they don't feel it's within their power or responsibility to step up and be that change. It's disheartening,” Bevin said. “That said, last night I spoke to a group of 250, 300 people. There was a GOP gathering, and it was one where it was not the most hospitable crowd, but boy, we moved some people… So the groundswell of hunger for change is there, at every turn. We got a huge ovation from people when I was done speaking and not because it's brilliant. It's because it's real and resonates with people.”

Glenn explained that he used to have a good deal of “real respect” for McConnell because he considered him to be “one of the good guys.” But much in the way many long-term incumbents have turned into huge disappointments, McConnell suffered the same fate.

“It's really funny, because I used to have real respect for Mitch McConnell. I really did. I thought Mitch McConnell was one of the good guys years ago,” Glenn said. “If you are there too long, it just wears you down until you are just part of the system. And it's dangerous.”

“Term limits is what we need,” Bevin responded. “It will happen to any man. There's nobody who goes to that town and doesn't change… Yet those who change don't recognize it in themselves. We need congressional level term limits.”

Ultimately, Bevin asked those listening to remain informed and ensure they understand what is at stake before heading to the ballot box.

“I charge your listeners: America is great, and we will not stay great if people don't take ownership,” Bevin concluded. “I am just begging people, be engaged, step out there, make sure you are voting in an informed fashion, because this is the greatest nation on earth. And if the American people lose this experiment, if we lose the control of our government, which is quickly happening, then we have lost, and the world has lost a least great beacon of hope. We can't allow this to happen on our watch.”

“Thank you very much, Matt. We'll talk to you next week. It’s - endorsed by FreedomWorks, endorsed by Kentuckians Against Common Core. Heidi Huber, who heads up Ohioans Against Common Core, also big with Matt Bevin,” Glenn concluded. “This is an important one. This is a game-changing election. And that's why the GOP has spent so much time and so much money trying to dismantle this guy because this one is truly game changing… Keep him in your prayers this weekend. It's something that can still happen.”

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

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?
