GLENN: How is it that immigration reform, when you have a law that says government, do your job, that you can't do. But you can have immigration in cities that says, by the way, I don't care what the federal law says; we're not doing it. How is it that no one has brought that up? How is it that we don’t file suit against New Haven, Houston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, New York.

PAT: Not only is New Haven, Connecticut a sanctuary city but they also issued special cards to illegals, right?

GLENN: Yeah, they issue IDs.

PAT: Interesting.

GLENN: I would really like to know that. And I would also like to know, and I've had this conversation with Judge Napolitano over and over again, but I'm sorry, I don't buy into it. They always say, well, we decided state rights in the 1860s. Excuse me? Yes. For slavery. Yes, we did. For slavery. But there's a difference between slave ---- well, maybe there's not. Because I contend we are on the same -- we're having the same argument except in reverse. Illegal immigration is slavery. You are enslaving people.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: These giant corporations, the government is doing it for voters. The corporations are doing it for cheap jobs. They don't have to provide healthcare. They don't have to provide anything. They can screw with these people any way they want, put their hands in a meat grinder. Oh, really? What are you going to do? It's slavery!

PAT: And it's too late now but if we would have approached the problem in that way from the very beginning, we would have won this argument a long time ago.

GLENN: It's not too late. It's not too late. The churches must teach the truth. And not about politics. It couldn't be about you know what's really strange to me is, have you noticed that they don't ever this occurred to me last night. They don't ever attack me as a libertarian and no one ever points out how much I pissed off the conservatives and the Republicans during the Bush administration. I mean, Pat, you remember. We had program directors tell us, you can't do this, you can't come out against George Bush, you can't excuse me? I'm sorry. I'm going to be true to who I am and the values that I hold. "You're going to lose the whole audience!" Well, if I lose the whole audience, then the audience is stupid. That they can't handle that we disagree on things. I don't believe that of my audience. As it turns out, we were right. But you notice they never say that because they must make this about Republicans and Democrats. Again it's what the Weather Underground manifesto talked about, politicize everything. So it's just about Republicans versus Democrats, instead of principles. We must break out of that cycle as human beings. We must not be about the Republicans or the Democrats. We must be about principles and values because that's the way you can that's the only way you can win this. Because it is about slavery. Now we're saying the state has a right to survive and chase not only the people who are coming in illegally and causing all kinds of problems but also going after those who are enslaving people, that the state has a right to survive. What is the president of the United States doing? He has made the Constitution into a suicide pact. Am I wrong on that? California, you tell me. What is crippling you well, besides progressive policies and overspending in absolutely every front and the environmental things that you're doing and

PAT: I guess a better question would be what isn't crippling you.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: All their policies.

GLENN: What is crippling your hospitals? What are crippling your schools?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Illegal immigration.

PAT: Judicial system.

GLENN: Judicial system, prison system. You don't have enough resources to deal with these things. You don't have it. And so what's happening? You are going to implode. Well, by the federal government not doing what is on the books - you don't need comprehensive reform! You need to enforce the laws.

PAT: Look what's happening right now in Arizona. It just barely took effect yesterday supposedly and already it was working! Already people are self deporting. They are picking up their stuff and they are going home.

PAT: Everybody says, how are we going to ship all these people --you don't have to.

GLENN: They go away. They go away. And let me tell you something. How do you get rid of the big businesses that are hiring people, you know, illegals because they think that you need a salad that is a dime cheaper? You don't have to have this. You start prosecuting people and I mean, put these people out of business. You knowingly, knowingly hire illegals; you should be fined. You knowingly hire illegals a second time after you've been fined; you should be put out of business. Period. You should be put out of business. Or you should go to jail, or whatever it is. We can come as a society to rational, reasonable things, but you don't hire illegal aliens to run your business because you can get it done cheaper.

Now, I know how difficult it is to get people to do manual labor. I know. That's the other side of this problem. Is that you can't get workers. They will say, you can't get workers to do. I know. Try to get a neighbor kid like I used to be, mow the lawn for the neighbors. Do you remember, is it just me that used to take their lawn mower and you'd go to neighbors' yards and you'd say, can I mow your lawn? And you had a job mowing your neighbor's lawns? That was your summer gig! You mowed lawns. Try to get kids to do that now. Can't? Well, that's not a problem with illegal aliens. That's a problem with us. That's a problem with us as moms and dads. That's saying manual labor is beneath them, that they shouldn't do that, they should go do something else. Tell your kid to go mow the lawn. And you know what? Tell your kid to go mow the lawn for the needy people, the old lady down the street or whatever, tell them to go do it for free. Do it because it's the right thing to do. Do it and don't take any credit for it. Just go do it. We don't do that anymore. I mean, it's a whole societal issue here. But I'm sorry, I don't understand the Constitution being a suicide pact. I don't understand how a state has to financially self implode because the government won't do their job. States have a right to survive.

It’s no secret that Glenn has a less-than-optimistic view of emerging AI and when you look at the horrifying new technologies that utilize the power of AI it’s hard not to agree.

Here’s a look at 7 new AI technologies that will HORRIFY you:

AI Brainwave Monitoring

Earlier this year during the World Economic Forum's annual meeting, Nita Robinson, a professor of law and philosophy at Duke, presented a video that depicted a “hypothetical” situation where a person's brainwaves are monitored by their earbuds, which have the ability to record brainwaves, decode them with AI, and then send brain reports to their boss and are accessible by government agencies. When the video ends, Robinson makes the terrifying announcement that this AI technology already exists! It's just a matter of time before it's implemented.

If you want to learn more about Brainwave tracking and the WEF, you can watch this clip from the Glenn Beck Program.

AI Voice Cloning

Last month, Glenn covered a terrifying story involving a scammer who created an AI clone of a child's voice in order to scam money out of her terrified parents. While this might sound advanced, a quick Google search reveals that this technology is remarkably accessible and is easily able to replicate the voice of anyone. Imagine the havoc that could be inflicted on your life with an AI clone of your voice.

Like something out of Star Trek, a team of researchers at the University of Texas at Austin developed a new AI that is able to decode brain activity and produce a transcript of a person's thoughts with reasonable accuracy, all without the need for implants or other invasive measures. While the researchers assure us that the technology has major limitations, including the need to train this AI extensively on each subject's brain, it’s only a matter of time before the AI is able to overcome these limitations, and it may be sooner than we would like…

Snapchat's new AI “Friend”

Image of My AI's contact on Snapchat


In April the popular social media messaging app Snapchat released a controversial new feature known as “My AI”—an AI chatbot powered by ChatGPT. The new feature acts much like other chatbots. It can answer questions, converse with the user, and offer recommendations. However, unlike other chatbots, it is integrated in such a way that it can be difficult to distinguish from a human user, complete with a customizable avatar and name. Many parents are worried that the friendly appearance of “My AI” will make it hard for their teens to differentiate the bot from a real human. Moreover, the only way to remove the bot is by paying for Snapchat’s premium service, giving parents little recourse for protecting their children.

AI "Big Brother"

In a recent TED talk, former Apple Designer Imran Chaudhri introduced the concept for a new wearable AI device connected to a camera and microphone, enabling the AI to hear and see everything you do. Chaudhri assures us that the device is “privacy-first and safe,” but how safe would you feel with an all-seeing AI accompanying you all day every day?

AI Meddling with Elections

One terrifying potential use for AI could be meddling with elections. The last few years have seen a decline in faith in our elections, and the emergence of AI will only serve to muddy the waters. As previously mentioned, AI voice clones are here and have been proven to have the ability to create compelling facsimiles of political figures. Combined with AI image technology the threat of an AI-generated scandal is high.

If you want to learn more about AI interference with elections you can watch this clip from the Glenn Beck Program.

AI Dating

Another disturbing development is the creation of “Dating AIs”—AI chatbots designed as a replacement for a boyfriend or girlfriend. There is already a variety of options available with prices ranging from free all the way up to $1 a minute, like some sort of dystopian "call girl." There are already reports of people developing genuine emotional attachments to these bots and others who have married or have tried to marry their artificial lovers.

Global ESG investments PLUNGED 76 percent with NEGATIVE returns on investment

SOPA Images / Contributor | Getty Images

Glenn has been one of the most outspoken critics of the use of ESG by globalist elites to force businesses to comply with their woke agenda. It turns out, not only is ESG bad political practice—it's bad for your wallet too.

Global Investments in ESG Funds PLUNGED 76 percent globally in 2022 from $157.3 billion to $649.1 billion in 2021, with a 20 percent decrease in the U.S. ALONE. This marked the lowest annual net inflow for ESG funds since $69 billion in 2018.

The downturn in ESG investment is largely due to the concerted effort led against ESG led by Glenn and government officials like Ron DeSantis and his anti-ESG 14-state coalition. Thanks to Glenn and DeSantis, an increasing number of states are barring their governments from taking ESG into consideration when determining their investment recipients for state pension and retirement funds. This not only protects critical American industries like oil and gas, but moreover, it protects the First Amendment rights of business owners who don't want to conform to the Left's woke environmentalist and LGBTQ+ standards.

Thanks to Glenn and DeSantis, an increasing number of states are barring their governments from taking ESG into consideration.

However, the massive plunge in ESG investment isn't only attributed to the political pushback against the practice: it also isn't yielding investors the return on investment they were hoping for. In fact, the main ESG funds have a NEGATIVE return on investment.

ESG funds were hit hard by falling equities. One of the largest ESG funds int the U.S., Parnassus Core Equity Fund (PRBLX), fell 26 PERCENT in 2022. This fund performed nearly six percent worse than the S&P 500, which fell 19.44 percent within the same period. Similarly, iShares ESG Aware MSCI USA ETF (ESGU) fell 20 percent, and Vanguard ESG U.S. Stock ETF (ESGV) plummeted 24 percent.

Even the Harvard Business Review admitted investors in ESG have "not fared well":

ESG funds certainly perform poorly in financial terms. [...] Although the highest rated funds in terms of sustainability certainly attracted more capital than the lowest rated funds, none of the high sustainability funds outperformed any of the lowest rated funds [bolded added]. That result might be expected, and it is possible that investors would be happy to sacrifice financial returns in exchange for better ESG performance.

The Harvard Business Review went on to say that ESG funds don't even benefit the environmental and social causes they tout to defend. In fact, when comparing environmental and social compliance between ESG and non-ESG funds, the
"ESG portfolios had worse compliance record for both labor and environmental rules" than their non-ESG competitors.

Let that sink in. ESG funds not only financially underperformed when compared to their non-ESG competitors. They failed to secure the very environmental and social compliance that is central to their original purpose. Missionally, practically, and financially, ESG failure is astounding.

As Glenn has long warned, the only thing that investment firms and governments should be taking into consideration regarding YOUR money is how they can get the best possible return on YOUR investment. We are seeing the detrimental consequences of what happens when woke ideology becomes the basis of investment rather than the recipient's monetary value.

The only thing that governments should take into consideration regarding YOUR money is how to get the best possible return on YOUR investment.

If political conviction alone isn't enough to persuade the general public to ditch ESG, maybe their hurting pursestrings will.

Glenn will show how ESG is being used to further globalist elites' agendas in the second installment of his Great Reset series, Dark Future.To make sure you're caught up and to learn more about ESG, enter your email below to get chapter one of Glenn's first Great Reset book sent straight to your inbox.

You've probably noticed that Glenn is FED UP.

He is FED UP with the crimes that our political elite can get away with. And NO ONE is keeping them accountable! This corruption goes all the way up to the Presidency. Over and over again, the American people have seen headlines of the Biden family's illicit business dealings and crimes both domestic and abroad, yet they ALWAYS get a free pass from the media, and Republicans who promise to hold them accountable, DON'T.

Are you FED UP too?

Glenn laid out the ENTIRE CASE against the "Biden crime family," detailing EVERY crime allegedly committed by the Bidens, going city by city, state by state, country by country.

But we can't stop there.

Now it's up to YOU to demand that they are held responsible. Here's what to do:

  • Step 1. Watch "The Reckoning" (on YouTube or Facebook) and share it with your friends.
  • Step 2.Enter your email HERE to get access to the "Biden Crime Family Dossier" with the full list of crimes and contact information for prosecutors and attorneys general.
  • Step 3. Take action by flooding the phones and emails of the prosecutors and attorneys general in your district and demand they prosecute these crimes.
  • Step 4. Once you've contacted the offices in your relevant district, tweet @glennbeck using the hashtag #Reckoning and let us know who you contacted and whether you received a response.

Like you, Glenn is SICK AND TIRED of our government and media giving the Biden family a free pass for their blatant crimes. Together, let's do something about it.
