Are you ready for driverless cars?

Remember Totall Recall, that awesome movie from the 90's, with Arnold Schwarzenegger? Well, guess what? Those self-driving cars from that movie are not too far away from being a constant in our future. While the current prototype does not include a Chucky-like robot driver, they are still impressive.

This morning on radio, Glenn brought up a conversation he had with a friend this morning about driverless cars and their possibility of being a constant in our lives by 2025. Glenn, Pat, and Stu debated the topic with Pat comparing driverless cars to the popularity of computers. Glenn said, "It's just going to happen overnight quickly by 2030. So I said...by 2025. Then I thought they would be the car that would be on the road."

Wow! 2025 is only ten years away! You may be wondering, how is the driverless car going to make it's break-through into modern society? Well, Glenn talked about that as well, "Uber would be the real beginning of it. That you would call for an Uber and a driverless car would show up."

Unfortunately, with the chance of driverless cars taking over our streets, that would remove the task of driving from the picture. Glenn said, "In our lifetime, it will become illegal to drive cars. Our grandchildren will not believe we were allowed to drive cars." Think about it, there would no longer be accidents, because human error would be removed from the equation of driving. Drunk driving accidents? Non-existent. Worrying about your child making it to soccer practice? Done. But at the same time, it would take away the sheer joy of "putting the pedal to the metal," or knowing that you can get into your car and just drive with no destination in mind.

It raises the question, are you prepared for a driverless car future?

Below is a rough transcript:

GLENN: So I'm walking into the building today. And Mark is walking with me. One of the guys on the team. He's walking with me. And we've been talking about technology in the future and everything that's coming. He said, so do you think self-driving cars are really -- we'll see those in our lifetime? I said, oh, my gosh, yes, we'll see those in our lifetime. By probably 2025, they will be -- they'll be the main car on the road.

PAT: Do you think in ten years? It's going to take some time I think to replace the other ones, won't it? It seems like that will be a long transition to me.

GLENN: I think that they are going to -- I think when they -- when they start to happen, they're just going to sweep.

PAT: And everybody will want one.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Kind of like computers. Computers were that way.

GLENN: Yeah. It's just going to happen overnight quickly by 2030. So I said, I said by 2025. Then I thought they would be the car that would be on the road. And I said that Uber would be the real beginning of it. That you would call for an Uber and a driverless car would show up.

This morning, as I come in, here's what I -- I get an email from a friend. How Uber's autonomous cars will destroy 10 million jobs and reshape the entire economy by 2025.

Now, the guy -- Mark who is walking in, he laughed when I said this. And he said, I'm sorry. I'm not laughing at you. He said, I'm just laughing at how crazy this sounds.

And I said, I know it sounds crazy, but I think it will happen.

So here's the article. I've spent quite a bit of time lately thinking about autonomous cars, and I wanted to summarize my current thoughts and predictions. Most people, experts included, seem to think the transition to driverless vehicles will come slowly over the next few decades. That large hurdles exist for widespread adoption. I believe this is a significant underestimation. Autonomous cars will be commonplace by 2025 and have a near monopoly by 2030. The sweeping change will bring an eclipse of every other innovation in our society that we have experienced so far.

Think of that. This innovation will eclipse every other innovation we have seen so far.

PAT: A lot like the segue did. Remember that back in the '90s? Whoa, did that revolutionize society. Remember that?

STU: That was the 2000s.

GLENN: Yeah, but you know what, but that was ridiculous.

PAT: That was so stupid because Dean Kamen was like, oh, this is going to revolutionize society. It will change civilization as we know it. And he built it up so much. And then it's a scooter, with a motor?

GLENN: Well, it's revolutionized mall cops.

PAT: It has.

GLENN: They no longer have to walk.

PAT: Oh, they can travel from like Macy's on one end of the mall all the way to, like, JC Penney.

GLENN: JC Penney, without being winded.

PAT: Without touching the floor.

GLENN: Yeah, they can get as fat as they need to be as mall cops.

PAT: It's awesome.

GLENN: Okay. So but this is different. When you think about getting into a car and just telling it where it has to go and you don't to have drive, think about -- really your time in traffic is no longer a problem.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Because you're not having to sit there and pay attention and get frustrated -- you can sleep.

PAT: Or work.

GLENN: Yeah. You're just in a little office and you're on your way.

PAT: It's like your own personalized train. I know Stu used to do a lot of work. Jeffy used to just sit there and be fat on the train. But Stu used to do a lot of work when he lived in Pennsylvania and came into Manhattan every day and you got a lot of stuff done on the train. Right?

STU: Yeah, and it was actually a tough adjustment coming to Texas in that I didn't have the endless commute. But, I mean, part of that was a lot of office time that used on the train, I had to replace as actually being in the office. It was like an adjustment --

JEFFY: And I had to find new places to be fat.

PAT: Right. Right. And you have. You somehow worked that out. Right?

So now the -- the driverless car will be like your own personalized train, sort of.

GLENN: Yeah. Says this will cause unprecedented job loss and a fundamental restructuring of our economy. Solve large portions of our environmental problems and prevent tens of thousands of deaths per year. Save millions of dollars of productivity and create an entire industry that we cannot even imagine from our current vantage point. We're talking ten years.

The transition is already beginning to happen. Elon Musk, Tesla Motors' CEO, says the 2015 models will be able to self-drive 90 percent of the time. The 2015 model will be able to self-drive 90 percent of the time. The major automakers aren't far behind. According to Bloomberg News, GM's 2017 will feature technology that takes control of steering, acceleration, and braking at highway speeds of 70 miles an hour or in stop-and-go congested traffic. Both Google and Tesla predict fully automatic cars, what Musk describes as true autonomous driving, where you can literally get in the car, go to sleep, wake up at your destination, will be available to the public by 2020.

PAT: That's five years! Wow!

JEFFY: It will happen. We've talked about it on Pat and Stu before. That when it starts to happen, it will happen extra fast like you said, Glenn because the people actually driving cars will then be the dangerous ones.

GLENN: Yeah, that was my next prediction on the way in today. In our lifetime, it will become illegal to drive cars. Our grandchildren will not believe we were allowed to drive cars.

STU: I think that's true. It will seem crazy. You had all these accidents and all these bizarre things going on. Now science can just handle it. Why were you guys able -- this makes me inspired to buy the most awesome car I can buy next. Because, soon, you're not going to have that enjoyment to drive around.

GLENN: That's one of the reasons why -- I want to buy an old muscle car, and one of the reasons I want to buy them is because they're not going to exist anymore. You won't have the ability to go and just drive a driving machine, you know what I mean? It's just going to be -- it will something that drives you once place to another. That will change the concept of -- you know, like right now, the Maybach is probably the best experience of a car inside. It doesn't matter -- you know, it doesn't matter what the dash is like, the steering is like or anything else. You don't care about any of that in a Maybach. You care about what the backseat is like. That's what these cars will be like. They're going to be carriages. They'll be opulent on the inside. The most comfortable. Which one will lay down flat as a bed.

PAT: A driving living room sort of thing. Because you could, if the car is driving you, just watch TV on your way in, if you wanted to. You can watch a movie. You can do whatever you want.

GLENN: Yeah. All of the lost -- commuting will no longer be a problem.

PAT: It's kind of hard to imagine though that in five years it would be that way because they were driving that clunky Apple vehicle or whatever around some neighborhood, was that in California, and all the neighborhoods were like, what is this thing with all the satellite dishes on it? But they had sensors and satellites and stuff all over the car on the top and they were all pointed every which direction. And it turned out it was a self-driving car that they were trying out through neighborhoods. I can't imagine people driving around -- I mean, you'll to have perfect it a little bit better than that, aren't you? Nobody is going to want satellite dishes all over the tops of their cars in order to just -- where will you put that thing in your garage? It will take a lot of room.

STU: I don't think the Tesla ones have anything like that on them.

GLENN: Yeah. I think that's a test model.

Right now your cars tell you when you're backing up. You're too close. All the sensors.

PAT: And they'll stop.

GLENN: Yeah. And the bumper system. It's just, you don't even see any of that. You don't see the cameras on car's today.

PAT: That's true. I was amazed with my latest car. That it will dim the lights for me if it needs to. The beams will go from high to low if another car is approaching and back again. And I thought, wow, that's really something.

STU: I had a rental in Phoenix and it didn't have a backup camera. I almost didn't know how to drive the thing. I didn't know how to backup. I totally forgot how to reverse without a camera.

GLENN: You should drive some of my old cars.

PAT: No thank you.

GLENN: You drive some of my old cars, it is bizarre.

PAT: I wouldn't want to.

GLENN: Why?

PAT: Because I'm too used to, you know, all the amenities we have on these.

GLENN: Yeah, it's bizarre. You drive it. And what's really cool about it is, if you're my age, you remember cars like that, you know what I mean? And it's -- and you listen to the engine and I mean, you're in the car, and you're like, so, Pat, how are you doing!

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

A Colorado mother of three, Erin Lee, said her 12-year-old daughter was recruited by teachers to attend an "art club" after school, only to find it was a GSA or Gay Straight Awareness/Alliance Club. Not only was the family misled about the purpose of the club, but a guest speaker — who told the middle school students that "if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender" — also encouraged the kids to keep secrets from their parents.

Lee told Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday that her "shy, vulnerable, barely 12-year-old daughter" had just moved to Wellington Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado, when she was invited by her art and home room teachers to attend an "art club" after school.

"She texted us [and] we gave her permission for art club," Lee said of her daughter. "When she got there, it was actually GSA, or Gender and Sexuality Awareness or Alliance Club. The teacher had invited in a completely unqualified outside presenter who did unthinkable things with the children. I'll give you the CliffsNotes version. She told them, 'what you hear in here, keep in here.' She used flags to use defining words, telling them if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender. Then she would hand out the flags and stickers and bracelets and other swag. She told them that 'queer' is a label for when they're still figuring out their sexuality.

"She did the 'Genderbread person,' which explicitly asked kids who they're sexually attracted to, so 11, 12, 13-year-olds with peers and adults in the room, talking about their sexuality. She handed out her personal contact information and invited them to connect on teen chat platforms, like WhatsApp and Discord, where she knows that parents are not monitoring the conversation. She told them that families may not be safe, and it's okay to lie about where they are. And in fact, the art teacher, as my daughter was leaving the room that day, pulled her aside and said, 'remember, you don't have to tell your mom.'"

The outside presenter, Kimberly Chambers, is the director of SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, an organization that targets children as young as 5 years old, as indicated on its own website. Chambers is a paid employee of the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment with access to children’s information, according to a Parents Defending Education incident report.

Lee went on to say that, after learning from her daughter what happened, she and her husband contacted the school principal, who confirmed that the meeting was, in fact, held in secret and they are always held in secret because as a public school they have to offer children a "safe space." Lee then turned to the school board, but said she was ignored "for months." Finally, she was able to meet with board member Kristen Draper, who turned out to be a close friend and "strong ally" to Chambers. Draper also volunteers for an arm of SPLASH called SKITTLES.

"FOIA emails showed that [the school] immediately colluded when I objected to what happened," Lee told Glenn. "They immediately colluded with the school board to keep me quiet. They referenced parents who find out as 'barriers' that the school board has removed. They talked about sending social services into my home because I didn't like what they did with my child," she continued.

"My daughter had never expressed gender dysphoria before. She never expressed that she'd had any trouble at home. They never spoke to me. I never spoke to any of the people that did these things before they decided to talk about calling CPS ... In the state of Colorado, if my child had said to the CPS that I wasn't affirming her transgender identity, I firmly believe they would have removed her from the home. And the people knew this when they suggested that CPS come to our home to remove our child," Lee warned. "Colorado is off the rails in particular, but this is happening everywhere."

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.
