Harvey Is a Long Way From Over – Here’s What Happens Next

Even though it’s been downgraded from hurricane status, Tropical Storm Harvey continues to douse Texas and the southern coast as torrential rain adds to the flood waters.

On radio Wednesday, Glenn thanked the audience for their incredible support and asked them to continue to help as flood victims try to recover. In the last 48 hours, people have given over $500,000 to help Texas; unfortunately, the storm is far from over.

“It’s going to have a chain reaction that you’re going to probably feel in your community,” he said of the huge storm that has flooded tens of thousands of homes. “I’m humbled by what you have already done.”

Teams working to rescue people and keep them fed and safe need supplies, including satellite phones. Because the satellite phones sent to the disaster site aren’t waterproof, communication has been going down.

“We need more boats. … We also need your help on communication devices,” Glenn said. “This is a long way from being over.”

UPDATE: Total funds are now over $1,000,000 in donations.

GLENN: So there is -- there's some good news. Yesterday, just in the last 24 hours, you have stepped to the plate in an unbelievable way. Over $500,000 was raised just on yesterday's program. And we -- we can't thank you enough for that.

This is going to be something that goes for a very, very, very long time. And I think it is going to -- it's going to have a chain reaction. That you're going to probably feel in your community.

And I am -- I'm humbled by what you have already done and how many people are just giving like $5. Yesterday, I got an email. And people -- and we're going to talk to Jason who is down yesterday in Houston.

He said he could not believe the number of people who were driving their own personal cars and bringing their boats from all over the country. And he said, they were just leaving their car. And as they were leaving, they were like, "Buy, car." They just knew they were never going to see their car again. And Jason almost got stuck a couple of times because they're driving around. And they're trying to find a place to launch the boats. But the water is coming in so fast, that the cars are -- you know, when they drive down a street, if they can't launch it there, by the time they were turning around to try to get out the same way, they were blocked. I mean, they almost got trapped yesterday.

Just, you know, they didn't have a boat.


GLENN: They were following the guys who had the boat. At one point, they got separated. And they were like, we are -- we're going to be asking them to rescue us.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: We need more boats. And we also need your help on communication devices. The satellite phones that we dispatched yesterday, unfortunately not waterproof. And so we're losing a lot of satellite phones, the communication devices are going down.

We really need your support to believe just to communicate. This is a long way from being over.

You have to remember the waters were receding in -- with Katrina, really quickly.

And you were able to go -- by this time, they were going door-to-door, and they were spray painting X's and numbers on doors of how many people were dead in those homes. We're not even there yet.

And this is a long, long way from being over. And we really need your support at mercuryone.org.

We are trying to be as transparent as we possibly can be so you know exactly where the money is. I'll give you an update on what was happening yesterday. But we have -- I think it's Project Barbecue yesterday, finally was able to get to the -- to the location, which is the convention center.

PAT: George R. Brown Convention Center.

GLENN: The convention center, they're the ones that are going to be supplying 25,000 meals a day. Last night, they finally were able to fire things up. I think they served only 2500 last night. They'll be up to ten or 15,000 by today. And by tomorrow, they'll be at 25,000 meals.

STU: And in a real moment of graciousness, we have offered, when they're done, they can come back and stage here. Any barbecue facility actually that wants to come and stage themselves here, is welcome at any time.

GLENN: But there's no one to rescue here.

JEFFY: There's plenty of room in the parking lot to --

STU: Thank you, Jeffy. Lots of room.

So just think of this. This is all donations. Think of the amount of beef you need and pork. Thank God we're in Texas.

Think of the amount of food. For 25,000 people, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, at that one location. If you can help us, five bucks makes a world of difference. Go to mercuryone.org.

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
