Are Millennials the Cure to Glenn's Problem?

Millennials learned in the'90s that character matters, and it's something that is deeply important to them.

"They know that's all that matters. They don't see that in Donald Trump. They don't see that in Hillary Clinton. They don't see that in the RNC. They don't see that in the DNC. They now don't see that in many of our churches either. You have to be the beacon of character. That's the hope. The next generation already is there, and they get it," Glenn said Friday on his radio program.

Read below or watch the clip for answers to these questions:

• What's Glenn's problem?

• Is Bernie Sanders hot?

• What's more important --- authenticity or character?

• Is Stu a psychologist?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Ah, gee.

JEFFY: That's my favorite part.

(chuckling)

STU: You know what your problem is? Let me explain what your problem is.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Because this is your problem. You own this.

The issue here is that you are holding on to hope for the future of the country. You let that go, all of this feels great. It's easy. It's funny. You laugh at it. It's not a big deal.

You keep weirdly holding on to this idea that there's some future for --

GLENN: And here's -- and here's why. I know you're either strangely telling the truth and it's -- it is your way to happiness. Or you're mocking this point. But let me show you where the hope comes from. The millennials.

STU: Oh, great. Oh, yeah.

GLENN: No, listen to me. Listen to me. Why is Bernie Sanders popular?

STU: He's hot.

GLENN: Yeah. He's authentic.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: Now, everybody says -- everybody says, "It's authenticity." We now know the secret recipe. It is not authenticity. Because Donald Trump is authentic. He is authentic.

JEFFY: Right. That's what drew the original crowds.

STU: That's what people think.

GLENN: We should have known better. We should have known better.

The -- authenticity is the same reason Bernie Sanders -- he's authentic. That's who he is. Okay? And we're saying, "That's what people want. They want somebody who just lets it all out." Well, yes, that's part of it. That's part of it. But character is more important. Authenticity will get you a spike. It will draw a crowd. "You can't believe this guy. You don't even know what he will say." It will draw that crowd, but it will not keep the crowd.

Authenticity with an ethical backbone, where the guy is saying, "I don't care what you do to me -- Bernie Sanders, up until the very end, "Yeah, I'm a socialist." He was the only one brave enough to say it. "I'm a socialist."

That's what the millennials like. They have -- they learned most likely from watching television -- whether their parents taught it or not -- they learned in the '90s, character matters. They were on our side at the time. Character matters.

And there is such a lack of character now. They know that's all that matters. They don't see that in Donald Trump. They don't see that in Hillary Clinton. They don't see that in the RNC. They don't see that in the DNC. They now don't see that in many of our churches either. You have to be the beacon of character. That's the hope. The next generation already is there, and they get it.

California Democrats are leading the way on green spending, but what do they have to show for it?

In this clip, Glenn discusses California's crippling energy shortage and pleas to its citizens to stop cooling their homes during the current heat wave. Elected officials want Californians to buy electric vehicles and stop charging them, leaving Glenn to deduce that California lawmakers want people to stay home.

California's grid is under such strain that it requires a power plant in Oakland that burns jet fuel to continue operating through the end of next year to keep the lights on. "That sounds green as crap, doesn't it?" Glenn snarked. Can Americans continue to shrug this off as only California’s problem? Well, between the 17 states who have bound themselves to California by law, how long will it be before the rest of America begins to feel the impact in their lives?

The average price for a gas-powered vehicle is approximately $48,000, while the average price for an electric car is more than $66,000. And according to a study from the Hoover Institution, California will have to double its grid to meet the EV demand.

Watch as Glenn walks through the challenges and the proposed "solutions" out of California.

After tense negotiations between Amtrak, its workers, and the White House, Biden has announced that they've reached a "tentative deal" to avoid a national rail strike.

Reuters reported:

U.S. passenger railroad Amtrak would resume normal operations Friday as it works to quickly restore canceled trains after a freight rail labor deal was announced, averting a rail shutdown.

"We're saved!" Glenn said on Thursday's radio program. Pay no attention to what was happening just a few months ago with this deal or the fact that it is nearing the midterms. Just stand in awe of the totally coherent Joe Biden and his unquestionable cognitive ability to intervene in negotiations with the union workers and save America.

"This is political theatre at its finest," Glenn said. In this video, Glenn performed a one-man political theater show and illustrated why some might be led to believe that the whole Amtrak debacle was strategically planned — and on International Democracy Day to boot.

San Francisco Chronicle reported that catalytic converter thieves targeted police vehicles earlier this week.

According to police, at around 1 p.m. on Monday, an SFPD officer discovered that a catalytic converter had been stolen off of a police truck in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. A spokesperson said the officer later noticed multiple police vehicles had been hit by thieves.

No arrests have been made. Multiple officer injuries have been reported in connection to catalytic converter theft incidents.

As San Francisco police were targeted by catalytic converter thieves, House Rep. Nancy Pelosi was in D.C., along with President Joe Biden, and told the American people about the totally successful and not at all disastrous Inflation Reduction Act. Glenn Beck covered the spectacle on his radio program and called the gathering "the worst propaganda ever devised."
