Election by Numbers: Looking to the Swing States

Donald Trump might have a movement on his hands, but Newton’s Third Law states every action has an equal and opposite reaction. The #NeverTrump movement is in full force and Trump has yet to secure the Republican nomination, meaning there is yet another Super Tuesday to deal with.

Here is a look at what happened over the weekend and how things are shaping up in Tuesday’s races.

Recent Historical Look at Candidates Approval Ratings

Donald Trump might be a strong primary candidate, but a lot of his positions put him behind the eight ball come the general election.

Here is a look at some of the recent nominees approval ratings over the years.

• 1992 – Bill Clinton -12

• 1996 – Bob Dole -4

• 2000 – George Bush +12

• 2000 – Al Gore +10

• 2004 – John Kerry +12

• 2008 – John McCain +20

• 2008 – Barrack Obama +18

• 2008 – Hillary Clinton +2

• 2016 – Hillary Clinton -12

• 2016 – Donald Trump -39

“Hispanics Love Me”

Do they Donald? Really? You might think so, but the numbers tell a different story. Hispanics that hold no opinion on the race have a -65 percent approval rating and those who do have an opinion are even lower at -73 percent.

These numbers all point towards a rough November for Mr. Trump, but he might not even get there if co-host Pat Gray’s prediction comes true.

“Ted Cruz must have it. Must have the northern Marianas. Now, we don't give a crap about the southern Marianas. The southern Marianas don't matter at all. They're irrelevant completely. Irrelevant. But the northern Marianas, Ted Cruz will win, and that will sweep him to the nomination. That's my prediction,” Pat said.

Here are the TOP 9 MAJOR recipients from George Soros

Bloomberg / Contributor | Getty Images

The Capital Research Foundation published a report that George Soros has poured nearly $21 BILLION dollars into U.S. politics since 2000, aptly calling him "the biggest ATM for leftist political causes in the world." 23 years and $21 billion dollars later, has our country benefited from Soros' generosity? Even Democrats are beginning to catch on to the detrimental consequences of extreme left politicians.

Moreover, Soros has created a model for fellow billionaires to fund political activism, expanding his influence far beyond his dollar-and-cents value. Parker Thayer from the Capital Research Center describes Soros' influence in the following:

George Soros created the model for the modern politically inclined billionaire. His view of political giving as a philanthropic endeavor has created an entire class of copycat billionaires who generously fund activist politicians with too many degrees and not enough common sense.

Nowadays, the Left is funded by a whole host of billionaires, but even at the ripe old age of 92, Soros is still leading the pack.

Under the regime of Soros-backed attorneys, innocence is determined by the color of your skin rather than by the content of your character, rolling back everything Martin Luther King Jr. fought for. They ensure criminals are given a free pass while the innocent are prosecuted in their place—all in the name of their "woke" utopic agenda. One prosecutor even had the audacity to prosecute former U.S. President Donald Trump on clearly politically motivated charges.

It comes as no surprise that Soros is funding the Left's most powerful PACs, pushing money into leftist campaigns and causes. In 2022 alone, Soros poured $179,885,784 into Leftist PACs and candidate campaigns, ranking number one out of OpenSecret's 30,177 top politically affiliated organizations in terms of the sheer dollar amount.

Here are the TOP 9 recipients of Soros' EXORBITANT funding in 2022.

1. Democracy PAC II: $175,000,000

It comes as no surprise that the top recipient of Soros' funding is another Super PAC owned by Soros himself. Democracy PAC II's recipients vary from Democrat congressional funds to leftist social organizations, including Senate Majority PAC, House Majority PAC, Black PAC, Black PAC, Care In Action Pac, and more. Most donations are $1,000,000 or more.

Soros poured $125 million into the PAC ahead of the 2022 midterms and another $50 million the following year.

2. Democracy PAC: $183,713

Democracy PAC was Democracy PAC II's predecessor that Soros founded in 2020 to help push Biden's defeat of Trump and the success of other Democrat candidates. In 2022, they spent $81,073,439 on Democrat candidates and causes.

3. DNC Services Corp: $1,593,332

The DNC is the activist arm of the Democratic National Convention. They fund campaigns of Democrat candidates around the country with their whopping $315,027,836 annual budget (as of 2022).

4. Colorofchange.org: $1,000,000

Katarina Bradford / Glennbeck.com | Color of Change's Site

Color Of Change recently came into the spotlight over Soros-backed Manhattan AG Alvin Bragg's prosecution of Donald Trump. Bragg received significant funding and support from Color of Change, a PAC dedicated to "end practices that unfairly hold Black people back." Out of their $4 million expenditures in 2022, Soros funded nearly a quarter of their entire budget.

5. Justice & Public Safety: $569,000

Katarina Bradford / Glennbeck.com | Justice & Public Safety's Site

The Justice and Public Safety PAC's sole aim is to get leftist prosecutors elected. As Soros contributed to 97 PERCENT of the entire PAC's 2022 budget, these prosecutors are likely Soros-backed.

6. Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee: $505,500

Katarina Bradford / Glennbeck.com | Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's site

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) prides itself in being the only PAC solely dedicated to retaining a Democrat majority in the Senate. The PAC spent a whopping $298,027,976 in 2022 on Democrat Senatorial candidates, the top recipients of which were Democratic candidates in key election states, most notably, John Fetterman.

7. Forward Majority Action: $200,000

Katarina Bradford / Glennbeck.com | Forward Majority Action's site

Forward Majority Action focuses on securing Democrat seats in state-level legislatures. Is it any wonder why there has been a surge in local-level woke policies? They boasted of a nearly $14 million budget in 2022.

8. Raphael Warnock: $23,532

Soros' PAC gave a significant donation into Progressive Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock's campaign amid the razor-thin 2022 runoff election during the midterms. Did Soros' donation save Warnock's seat from his Republican challenger?

9. Build Our Movement: $20,000

Build Our Movement poured $200,000 into Democrat federal candidates in 2022. Soros' donation made up 10 percent of their entire funding.

How dangerous is AI? These 13 quotes from AI researchers will terrify you.

Anadolu Agency / Contributor | Getty Images

Glenn has become one of the most outspoken people warning about the existential threat AI poses to our human species. Sounds like sci-fi hullabaloo, right? What if I were to tell you that HALF of AI researchers believe that there's a chance that AI will result in our extinction?

Glenn has been a supporter of technology that helps humanity and brings life and color to our everyday existence. However, if AI researchers are sounding the alarm bells about AI's threat to the human species, shouldn't we put the pause button on AI to consider the risks?

Don't take Glenn's word for it. The following quotes from AI researchers show the true scope of AI's threat to humanity—in their own words.

Tristan Harris—Co-founder, Center for Humane Technology

"What’s surprising and what nobody foresaw is that just by learning to predict the next piece of text on the internet, these models are developing new capabilities that no one expected. So just by learning to predict the next character on the internet, it’s learned how to play chess."
“No one is building the guardrails [for AI]. And this has moved so much faster than our government has been able to understand or appreciate.”

Stuart Russell—Professor of Computer Science at Berkeley

"What I’m finding is that senior people in the field who have never publicly evinced any concern before are privately thinking that we do need to take this issue very seriously, and the sooner we take it seriously the better."
"Just as nuclear fusion researchers consider the problem of containment of fusion reactions as one of the primary problems of their field, it seems inevitable that issues of control and safety will become central to AI as the field matures."

Tyna Eloundou, Sam Manning, Pamela Mishkin, Daniel Rock—University of Pennsylvania

80% of the U.S. workforce could have 10% of their work tasks affected by modern AI. Almost one-fifth of workers could see half their work tasks affected.

Aza Raskin—Co-founder, Center for Humane Technology

"Researchers don't know what ChatGPT4 is capable of. And yet researchers have deployed it to the public."

The AI Dilemma—Center for Humane Technology

"Corporations are caught in an arms race to deploy their new technologies and get market dominance as fast as possible. In turn, the narratives they present are shaped to be more about innovation and less about potential threats. We should put the onus on the makers of AI—rather than on citizens—to prove its danger."
"Guardrails you may assume exist actually don’t. AI companies are quickly deploying their work to the public instead of testing it safely over time. AI chatbots have been added to platforms children use, like Snapchat. Safety researchers are in short supply, and most of the research that’s happening is driven by for-profit interests instead of academia."
"The media hasn’t been covering AI advances in a way that allows you to truly see what’s at stake. We want to help the media better understand these issues. Cheating on your homework with AI or stealing copyrighted art for AI-generated images are just small examples of the systemic challenges that are ahead."

Geoffery Hinton—AI "godfather" and former Google scientist

OpenAI, “eclipses a person in the amount of general knowledge it has and it eclipses them by a long way."
"I’ve come to the conclusion that the kind of intelligence we’re developing is very different from the intelligence we have."Unlike biological intelligences like human beings, [AI systems] can learn separately, they share their knowledge 'instantly.' So it’s as if you had 10,000 people and whenever one person learned something, everybody automatically knew it. And that’s how these chatbots can know so much more than any one person."

Steve Omohundro—Founder of the Vision and Learning Group and the Center for Complex Systems Research, and inventor of various important advances in machine learning and machine vision

"We have shown that all advanced AI systems are likely to exhibit a number of basic drives. It is essential that we understand these drives in order to build technology that enables a positive future for humanity. […] The rapid pace of technological progress suggests that these issues may become of critical importance soon."

What if there were a 10 percent chance humans would go extinct from AI? Would you at least want to push the "pause button" on AI and reassess before moving full-speed ahead with new AI tech?

This isn't just a scary hypothetical.

On radio today, Glenn pointed to a new, harrowing study finding that 50 percent of AI researchers believe there is a 10 percent or greater chance humans will go extinct because we cannot control AI. If you were about to board a plane, and half of its engineers said there was more than a 10 percent chance the plane would crash, would you still board the aircraft?

I sure wouldn't. I don't think most people would. So why aren't we raising the same level of concern with AI?

50 percent of AI researchers believe there is a 10 percent or greater chance humans will go extinct because we cannot control AI.

Co-founders of the Center for Humane Technology, Tristan Harris and Aza Raskin, attempted to explain the mainstream apathy towards the dangers of AI during a lecture in front of Big Tech heavy hitters, including the creator of Siri.

Harris and Raskin argued most people don't fear AI because the type of AI technology we have been introduced to, like Siri or ChatGPT, seems benign at its very worst. Yet, as they both point out, comparing these common forms of AI to the advancements being developed is like comparing the Wright brothers' first airplane to a Boeing jetliner. They are two completely different engines, incomparable in both power and advancement.

Comparing common forms of AI to advancements being developed is like comparing the Wright brothers' first airplane to a Boeing jetliner.

In the same way, AI has progressed FAR beyond Siri and ChatGPT. Harris and Raskin cited a study finding AI technology could read an MRI scan of a human's brain and articulate exactly what the person on the scan was thinking and seeing. Glenn also pointed to a terrifying World Economic Forum video showing AI mind-reading integration into the everyday workspace.

Are you concerned yet? You should be. It's just the beginning.

Glenn wants his audience to be as prepared for the AI Revolution as possible and has urged his listeners to watch Harris and Raskin's conference, which you can find below.

Tucker Carlson's exit from Fox News ushers in a new drive to independent media

Erik McGregor / Contributor | Getty Images

Tucker Carlson's exit from Fox News marks a new era of media in America. As a former Fox News personality himself, Glenn has had an insider look into the decline of the mainstream media—and yes, as Glenn maintains, Fox News IS mainstream. However, Tucker's exit from Fox puts the nail in the mainstream media's coffin: there are no longer any voices in the mainstream that are willing to stand up to the cultural narrative.

Tucker's exit from Fox puts the nail in the mainstream media's coffin.

Tucker was one of the most viewed and successful personalities in mainstream media. His last week at Fox drew 334,000 viewers in the coveted 25- to 54-year-old demographic in the 8 p.m. slot, beating out Fox's other top personalities like Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham and more than TWICE the audience of his CNN and MSNBC competitors in the same hour. On average, Carlson drew more than three million viewers for his night-time program among all demographics, regularly ranking as the most-watched primetime show on cable.

Yet this was nothing new.

Tucker has been the last remaining force in the mainstream media for YEARS, keeping the entire industry alive—even though MSNBC and CNN would never admit to it. With Tucker gone, there is no one within the mainstream who will challenge the mainstream narrative, whether that be from the right or the left.

And people know this.

Tucker has been the last remaining force in the mainstream media for YEARS, keeping the entire industry alive.

The same day Tucker's exit was announced, Fox's stock fell 5.2 percent, losing a total of $800 million. The blow came after Fox settled with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million. That's a total of more than $1.5 BILLION dollars in losses in just one week.

And Fox's outlook continues to dim.

The ratings for Fox's first 8:00 p.m. segment post-Tucker plummeted 26 percent, an ominous outlook for the rotation of hosts to fill in Tucker's previous slot. Moreover, viewers are ending their Fox Nation subscriptions in droves. Though the subscription rates are kept close to the vest, Blaze News covered a massive movement that erupted on Twitter of former Fox Nation subscribers canceling their accounts, citing Tucker's termination.

Glenn was one of the first public voices to warn about the decline of mainstream media. People thought he was crazy, but he saw how the growing volume of the establishment's narrative in the media was suffocating the individual's voice.

So he did something about it.

Glenn created BlazeTV as a haven for freedom of speech and the pursuit of truth in a world increasingly oppressive to these fundamental American ideals—and he did so for such a time as this.

Glenn created BlazeTV as a haven for freedom of speech and the pursuit of truth in a world increasingly oppressive to these fundamental American ideals.

If Tucker's exit from Fox put the nail in the mainstream media's coffin, then the burden on independent media and the individual's responsibility to pursue truth is more evident than ever. And, as always, BlazeTV is rising to the challenge.

On BlazeTV, you will find a group of content creators who fearlessly pursue the truth for its own sake, because that's what journalists and reporters are SUPPOSED to do. It's a haven for viewers who are disillusioned by the establishment's narrative, who want content centered on TRUTH rather than talking points. This is what the First Amendment was always intended for.

On BlazeTV, you will find a group of content creators who fearlessly pursue the truth for its own sake.

In light of Tucker's exit from Fox, BlazeTV is offering a $20 discount on annual subscriptions. Click HERE to sign up for BlazeTV to get unbiased, unregulated news in a world of establishment bias. However, wherever you get your news, BlazeTV hopes that you stand up to the establishment's attack on freedom of speech by pursuing truth for its own sake. Our republic depends on it.
