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.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
