Will getting a driver's license in America soon be a thing of the past?

The dying night club industry, the rise of local currencies and the growing popularity of apps like Tinder, Uber and Lyft reflect the "pivot" taking place as the millennial generation begins to leave its mark on the world.

On radio Tuesday, Glenn explained why he thinks getting a driver's license won't be a big deal in the future and why that might not be such a bad thing.

GLENN: I think we're headed for a time -- we're in for unbelievable change. And not all of it bad. Remember that back I talked to you about called the Fourth Turning that said that time is not linear. I mean, the way things change. You can't look at what's happening today and say, well, this is just going to accelerate and so it will be like this, except ten times worse ten years from now. Because the generations change. And each generation has their own mark. So as this new generation comes in, they're going to change things. And so you can't predict -- they're going to pivot. And so you can't predict what the future is going to be. Because we're not going to be making the decisions for much longer. The guys who are making the decisions now at the top, that hippie generation, they're going to die. They're going to lose their power and they're going to die. And the next generation will pivot in a different way. And you're seeing this now on a couple of things. And I want to talk about them next hour. We'll go in-depth. In England and in New York, they're now starting -- people are now starting -- millennials are printing their own currencies. Their artisan currencies. And they're starting to trade locally on their own currencies. Nobody is doing anything about it.

PAT: Kind of like, by the way, only --

GLENN: Except it's paper currency. And it's local. And it's meant to -- the shops in these towns are saying, well, we're only doing it locally because we want to keep our money here. So you go and you buy local currency, and then they're accepted at all of the local shops.

JEFFY: It's like the old coal miner towns used to do.

GLENN: Right.

JEFFY: The companies used to have their own coal money.

GLENN: Correct. So it's the same thing. But it's the millennials that are doing it. And it's the same idea as what's also happening now in London. They're saying, all of the nightclubs are dying. Nightclubs will be a thing of the past.

PAT: Because it's gone from like over 3,000 to something like 1100.

GLENN: Yeah. Because millennials are not going. Because they have Kindle. They want to go to places --

PAT: Tinder.

GLENN: Not Kindle -- tinder.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They go to places where they can -- where -- they like to take pictures. They want to have an experience. And they don't want to have the same experience every Friday night. So they're looking for something entirely different.

PAT: And they don't need a nightclub to meet people. They can meet people on Tinder.

GLENN: Right. So what I'm trying to say is, we are at a place now where literally -- and now I've said this in the past and meant this in a bad way. This is not necessarily a bad thing on this front. You're not going to recognize our society in ten years. It will be radically different because technology is changing everything. Because the millennials are starting to come in. And it's an entirely new generation that sees the world in a different way.

For instance, you will see in the next ten to 15 years, you will see car companies really start to struggle. Really struggle.

Why? Because ride sharing is going to become a thing of the future. Why own the car when I can just -- it's like bikes in cities. When I can just ride share. When I can just get online and say, hey, who is going to this place and at what time? And it's not for environmental reasons or anything else. It's just not part of the culture. The idea of getting your driver's license at 16 was a big deal for us. In cities all across America now, it's not a big deal.

In fact, I was talking to the guy who started -- not Uber, but what's the competitor of Uber?

STU: Lyft.

GLENN: Talking to the guy who started Lyft. And his daughter at like 20 years old, 19 years old, she said she doesn't even have her driver's license. And she said -- now, this is the guy who started Lyft. And she said, Dad, why do you have a car?

He's like, what do you mean why do I have a car?

She's like, why do you have a car? I mean, not only are you the guy who started Lyft. Why do you have a car? What a waste of money that is.

And he realized, I don't have to market to this generation. They get it. They're there. They just think differently.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
