Glenn explains why Putin is ‘licking his chops’ at the thought of Scottish independence

On Thursday, the Scottish people headed to the polls to cast their vote in a historic independence referendum that could mean the end of the 307-year-old United Kingdom. According to USA Today, 97% of eligible voters are expected to take part in today’s vote, and residents as young as 16 have been granted the right to participate. On radio this morning, Glenn did not support or oppose Scottish independence, instead running through some of the ramifications of a ‘yes’ vote.

“So today is a historic day, and I don't think most Americans are paying attention to Scotland and what is happening in Scotland,” Glenn said. “But this is important.”

While Glenn believes Scotts will vote in favor of independence today, Pat was not convinced. They agreed, however, there is likely a generational divide on the issue.

“What's happening in Scotland is self-determination. Do people choose to say, ‘I want to be part of something new, something that is much more local,’” Glenn explained. “I find it hard to believe that in today's world, the 20-somethings wouldn't say, ‘We want our independence. We want to be local and self-determining.’”

“That's probably true, but how many of them would vote,” Pat asked. “I would think the older Scots will want to stick to the status quo. It's been going on for hundreds of years. Let's not break up the UK now.”

Given all that is going on in the world today, Scottish independence might be at the top of the headlines in the United States, but Glenn believes the American people should care about what happens.

“Here's why they should care: Because someone like Vladimir Putin is licking his chops,” Glenn said. “If [Scotland] actually vote yes – and the world is saying, ‘Well, they voted for their independence because they’re different ethnically’ – that means countries like the Ukraine – when they have ‘free and open elections,’ the world has to support them because they're just saying ‘we're different ethnically.’ ‘We have no trouble with Ukraine, [but] we're ethnic Russians, so we vote to go this way.’”

“That works for Crimea,” Pat added.

Ultimately, Glenn said the outcome of the Scottish independence vote will be indicative of the direction the world is headed.

“There's two reasons to pay attention to this. One, what does it mean to the rest of the world? What are we teaching the rest of the world – especially those that like Vlad Putin,” Glenn said. “And two: What direction is the world going in? Remember, the leaders of the world are going for an even bigger state. They're pushing for the global governance. They're pushing for the EU.”

“Think about that we're talking about: Breaking up the United Kingdom… Just imagine this happening 50 years ago,” he concluded. “Imagine what a big story this would have been. Now, people are like, ‘Whatever. I don't know.’ It's incredible.”

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

13. Alaska

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?
