VIDEO: Witness to Texas Bus Crash Killing 13 Warned Authorities in Two Counties

A man who witnessed the swerving white truck that crashed into a church bus, killing 13 people, called sheriffs in two counties, urging them to get the driver off the road. No one responded. The driver of the white truck allegedly told the witness he had been texting at the wheel. Texas remains one of four states without a full ban on texting while driving. According to co-host Stu Burguiere, Texas has legislation for a full ban currently going through the process of being enacted.

GLENN: Also, this story from last week. I don't know if you saw this. The church mini bus that was driving down in rural Texas, it happened last Wednesday.

There is a video that came out of this guy in this big white truck. And he's being followed for 20 minutes.

And the person behind the car -- or, behind the truck, is videotaping him. He's like, he is all over the world. Thought he was drunk.

Called the sheriff in two counties -- crossed over to two counties. Called the sheriff's office in both counties and said, "You guys, you have to get out here. You have to arrest this guy before somebody gets killed. I don't know if he's drunk or what." Nobody responds. Nobody gets there in time.

He comes around the corner, and he hits a church mini bus. Thirteen people killed.

PAT: Oh, jeez. (sighing).

PAT: Hmm.

GLENN: The witness is a 55-year-old self-employed welder Jodi Kuchler. He and his girlfriend driving back to their home said he kept going off the road and onto oncoming traffic. And he just kept doing it. We called the sheriffs. Needed to get him off the road before he hit somebody.

He told the AP he witnessed the crash. And afterward, he checked both the bus and the truck and was able to speak with the driver of the truck. Twenty-year-old Jack Dylan Young of Leakey, Texas.

Now, imagine you at 20. He said, "I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I was just texting." Jodi said, "Do you know what you just did?"

"I'm sorry. I'm sorry."

The wreck on Wednesday occurred during a curve in the road where the speed limit is 65 miles an hour. The bus occupants, the members of the First Baptist Church, were returning from their three-day retreat in Leakey, about 9 miles from where the crash happened. Twelve people died at the scene. Another died in the hospital.

One bus passenger remains hospitalized in serious, but stable condition. Young, the driver of the pickup, also remains hospitalized.

Dozens of cities across Texas prohibit the practice, although there is no statewide ban on texting while driving. There will be now.

PAT: Maybe there should be.

STU: Well, it's in 46 states. It's banned. And Texas is one of the four that only has a partial ban.

GLENN: Yeah, I mean, I don't know why we don't have -- I mean, there's no reason -- we all know -- it's like drinking and driving. We all know that.

PAT: It's a public safety issue.

STU: Studies have shown that when they do that, people tend to hide their phones and look down away from the road. So they actually -- at least early on, got in more accidents when there were texting bans. Because they're not stopping texting. They're just putting their phones lower so police don't see them. And then they look down at their phones to text. And it takes their eyes off the road, instead of putting it up where they can actually still see their inner field of view.

GLENN: That makes sense.

STU: So Libertarians argue on that basis. But it's one of those things that's pretty much everywhere anyway. We went over this. There's two states that have nothing at all. And two states that have partial bans. And Texas has a full ban, I believe, going through the process of being enacted. And this is certainly going to probably isolate that -- or, excuse me, make sure of it.

GLENN: The problem is, you know, the car is just as dangerous, if not more so than a loaded gun. You know, you would never walk around with a loaded gun and, you know, be texting and pointing the gun all over and having people go, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, hey, he's got a right to text if he's got that gun." No, not if he's not responsible.

STU: Look, of course, everybody knows it's a bad idea. The question is whether you make it illegal or not. And, you know, there's arguments against it. I certainly understand the arguments for it as well.

I don't know that it actually makes a lot of people stop doing it. I think the people who are responsible enough to understand it's a bad idea are not going to do it because they think they don't want people to do to die, including themselves. So I think that's the real reason. I think most people don't do it. Again, people also know that they can get tickets for speeding, but they do it because they feel like it's -- it's actually fine. I know I can go 70 in a 55, and it's not a big deal.

GLENN: You don't know anybody like that, do you?

STU: Well, there's actually people -- and I've heard this, in Texas, that have had something like 12, 13 speeding tickets within like a couple of years.

GLENN: Right. Right. So much so, that you would lose your license and your insurance --

STU: Insurance goes through the roof in that scenario, right? Pat.

PAT: That's not me. Because I've had 15. So glad you're not talking about me.

GLENN: Fifteen tickets.

PAT: Well, that's over a four-year period of time.

JEFFY: Thank you.

GLENN: And he still has his license. In Texas, the man still has his license.

Was Elon Musk just RED PILLED?

It looks like Elon Musk was red-pilled yesterday. He came out and said he always voted for the Democrats, mainly because he thought they were the nice guys. Boy, did he wake up and he even said that he would be voting all Republican now. Elon, I would like to red pill you again. I wish we had faith in the Republican Party, but it's better than voting and pushing the garbage from the extreme radicalized left.

Why the Disinformation Board was REALLY canceled…

Just three weeks after its announcement, the Disinformation Governance Board is being paused and Nina Jankowicz is now on her way out. I'll bet you, in six months, we'll come back around to this -- mark it in your calendar. We'll come around to this story and say, oh. Remember when they canceled that? Yeah. They just shifted everything, under this umbrella, to hide it.

How the WHO's 'pandemic treaty' could CONTROL governments

On May 22nd, the World Health Assembly — which is the governing body of The World Health Organization — will meet in Switzerland to discuss next steps for its ‘pandemic treaty [and its] quest to use public health to expand The WHO’s power over sovereign states,’ Daniel Horowitz reports for TheBlaze. He explains how certain amendments to be added to this treaty could ‘allow the director-general of the WHO to declare a public health emergency in a country and unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions.’ The far-left and global elite continue to destroy our sovereignty, Glenn says, and this is just one more step toward their desired global government.

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: I read some stuff this morning. I've been doing some research on what's happening with the WHO. And I read their stuff today, that will make your head explode. And is really evil and important.

But let me give you this today, from -- from Daniel Horowitz at TheBlaze. States must preemptively nullify any WHO international pandemic regulation.

I'm going to read it verbatim because it's just so well-written. And now is the time, that things are shifting. We're going to. There's going to be a New World Order out there. And we've got to lead it. And we have to unite the rest of the free world in doing it. That's Joe Biden. March 21st, 2022.

Any Republican that is running without mentioning your intent to fight the global pandemic treaty or regulations, might as well run as a Democrat. This is really super important, and it is beginning to happen next week. On May 22nd, the world health assembly, the governing body of the World Health Organization, is going to meet in Geneva Switzerland to discuss the next step in its pandemic treaty. And the quest to use public health to expand the WHO's power over sovereign states. Representatives from 193 nations, including the US, will be attending the only country, not invited is Taiwan.

Gee, I wonder why. So what is this treaty? On January 24th, 2022, the director general of the WHO explained the treaty was a priority, to urgently strength the WHO, as leading and the director authority on global health, at the center of the global health architecture. He laid out the guiding principle of this plot. We, quote, all want a world in which science triumphs over misinformation. Solidarity triumphs over division. And equity is a reality, not an aspiration. He said, we are one world, we have one health. We are one WHO.

Now, this has not been announced. Biden has not even spoken about it. They are deathly quiet about this. But they're going to be approving amendments. The proposed amendments are essentially going to allow the director general of the WHO to declare public health emergencies in any country. And unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions. Here's one of the amendments, a critical section from article nine. The WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the state party, whose territory the event is allegedly occurring. But this is the way it's going to read. Now, WHO may take into account, reports from sources of other than notifications or consultations -- consultations shall assess these reports, according to established principles. And then communicate information on the event, to the state party, in whose territory the event is allegedly occurring.

Now, they have scratched out, before taking any action based on reports, the WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the state party. That's all gone. They're taking that out.

So WHO gets information, has reports, and they can act without verifying with the president or anybody else.

Why would you be erasing the requirement, for the WHO to consult with the government?

Number four. If the state party does not accept the offer of collaboration within 48 hours, WHO, it used to say, May. It now says, WHO shall -- when justified by the magnitude of public health risk, immediately share with other state parties, the information available, whilst encouraging the state party to accept the offer of collaboration, by the WHO. It used to say there, while taking into accounts the views of the state party concerned.

So they're erasing all of our sovereignty. This is going to be another thing. They're going to say, is a conspiracy theory. It is not. You can look it all up. It is the world health agenda. From the World Health Organization. They are meeting in Geneva, on May 22nd. So that's next week. They are intentionally quiet on this.

Because they know the power. Now, we also know what the WHO is. You remember, when everybody was saying, we have to get out of the WHO.

They're just a tool of China. Why would you say that?

Forget that I mentioned that Taiwan is the only country that is not invited to this in Geneva.

PAT: Yeah. That's completely -- completely irrelevant.

GLENN: Completely. Amen, brother.

PAT: I don't even know why you brought it up in the first place.

GLENN: Thank you. Thank you.

PAT: It's a good thing they weren't actually -- I wish we weren't invited to it.

GLENN: Well, I will tell you this. Another reason why Donald Trump. They fought so hard to keep him out: Because he wouldn't have --

PAT: He sure wouldn't have. That's exactly right.

GLENN: He wouldn't have empowered the WHO.

PAT: Well, he took us out of the WHO.

GLENN: That's exactly right. And this president is not only putting us back, they're taking away our sovereignty.

And so it's one more piece to the global governance of the left. Warning.
