Glenn is torn: Hates surveillance state, loves self driving cars

Would you like to have a self-driving car? Glenn got to drive something very close to one over the weekend and it was very, very cool. But new technology means sacrificing quite a bit of personal information to the growing surveillance state.

Glenn said he got to driver a "driver assist" vehicle to church, and it was unbelievable.

"I drove it over the weekend, and I drove it to church. And on the way home, my kids are like freaked out by this," he said. "You push what used to be cruise control, and you set the cruise control, and then you -- and then you decide how many car lengths you want to be from the car in front of you. So I set it to like two car lengths. Set it at church. I did not touch the gas or the brake until I got home."

"It's insane. You're steering the car. The car won't let you go out of your own lane. You put on the blinker, and you can switch lanes. You don't put on the blinker and you just kind of drift. First, the steering wheel vibrates. Then if you don't correct, it automatically corrects for you and keeps you in your lane."

While Glenn thought the car was insanely cool, he fears that it will cause the next generation that grows up with it to lose another skill.

"I am so schizophrenic on this, it's a love/hate relationship with technology," he explained. "I think my kids, eight and ten, the youngest kids, I think they'll both get their driver's licenses, but it won't matter."

According to Glenn, the car had a number of cameras on it as well. It enabled him to do some cool stuff, but again made him nervous.

"I could drive this car, like at high speeds, I think, in reverse. Because it has cameras everywhere. This is my worst nightmare. I don't even know how many cameras it has on it. Has cameras everywhere. When you back up, it puts the backup camera on your screen. So this camera, the screen splits when you go into reverse. And it shows you an aerial view of the car," Glenn said.

Glenn said there were a number of cameras on the car that helped create a composite image of your surroundings, placing your vehicle at the center.

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.
