GLENN: Speaking of shortages, 29 percent of the top-selling baby formula products are out of stock and have been out of stong by mid-March.

Data Assembly, which tracks baby formula stock at 11,000 retailers. They say this is a shocking number. They don't see it now for other categories. We've been tracking it over time. It's going up dramatically. We see this category is being affected by economic conditions more dramatically than others.

The second largest pharmacy, Walgreens, with over 9,000 locations announced it's now rationing baby formula.

Guys, we haven't even started yet. Rationing baby formula.

And they say, it is because there was a recall in January. But also, vital ingredients we can't get. Packaging, apparently has problems. But the freight costs are through the roof. And labor shortages.

STU: It's incredible.

A friend of mine had a baby boy.

Premie. I think 24 or 25 weeks, early enough that it was almost impossible.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Twenty years ago wouldn't have been possible.

GLENN: Yeah. Right.

STU: And touch and go for a while. Lived at the hospital for six months, I think. Finally, came home. And they have to feed him this very specific type of formula that's easy for him to digest, I guess. And they were -- they had months of this formula, at their house. And then this recall happened. They had to throw it all out.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: And now they spent half their time driving around Texas, looking to different Walgreens, and CBSs, hoping to find one cannister of this stuff.

GLENN: Imagine how frightening that would be. If your child couldn't be breastfed. That would be adopted babies. Mothers with some sort of a problem. Babies with problems. I mean, that's got to be terrifying.

STU: Terrifying. And he's like, we have about three weeks left. We should be good, hopefully for now. We have an order from Amazon. Hopefully, it comes. They're on the edge of their seats, trying to figure out whether they can feed their kid or not.

GLENN: Does this get worse, guys?

STU: I think you're right. We're at the beginning.

GLENN: We're at the beginning.

Listen. Take care of it. Do all that you can do. This is so important. Do all that you can do. Don't wait. Get food storage. Buy two of everything when you only need one. And store one. However you want to do it. But do all that you can do. And then trust. Trust that God is good and gracious. And that whatever it is, if you don't have enough, you know, it -- that's why you need a network. That's why you need to rely on -- on others. You're not going to be -- you're not going to starve to death. Not in the America I know. So do all that you know. Please do all you can. And be a blessing to others. Speaking of shortages, how is the car coming? We're almost approaching 7 months now, aren't we?

STU: Oh, no. We're over 7, Glenn.

We're approaching eight months. We should point out. It's eight months since I officially placed the order.

So I went through a very lengthy process of debating and going back and forth.

GLENN: Right.

STU: And finally placed the order that was over seven months ago.

GLENN: Because your car is like ten years old or something, isn't it?

STU: 2011, I think. Coming up on 11 years old.

GLENN: Because you don't flip cars all the time.

STU: No. And I like the car I had. So I just kept it, and now we're at 120,000 miles on it. Now I know, it could ride a little bit longer. But I'm thinking about, every time I get in the car. I'm like, this is -- the transmission will lock up today. Isn't it? Something will happen, where I won't get no value at the end --

GLENN: So you're really ahead of the game, in some ways.

STU: I wish I went earlier. Maybe I would have had the car delivered already.

But so I then decided, you know what, I'll go with an interim car. I'll get a new car that's not exactly the one I want, that's not the one I ordered. Because I want to get something. In case this thing dies.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But it's running great. It should last a long time anyway. Hopefully. Right as I'm ordering that one. Which is supposed to come in today. Today. We'll see. It was a couple weeks I did it. Then right as I -- three or four days ago, I got an email from the first dealership that said, your order was just pulled for production. I said, what does that mean? And she said, we should have a target production date, within 30 days.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: So that doesn't mean I get the car within 30 days. It means that we needed have a target -- a target production date delivery within 30 days. This is the life we're all going to be living now. This is the life we're all going to be living.

STU: Because I keep thinking how bad my situation is. And it's bad, from the perspective of, this is America.

GLENN: It's not bad. We're not playing a violin for you.

STU: They're supposed to be knocking at my door every hour of the day, to make me buy a car. Remember the car salesman thing? Where they're harassing you all the time.

GLENN: Now they're like, I'm not sure if we can get you into a car.

STU: I'm trying to spend money at these places, they won't even return my call. But my story pales in comparison to your story.

GLENN: Oh, don't bring this up. No, no, no.

STU: Which, I remember -- I think I'm pretty sure Mitt Romney was running for president when you ordered one particular --

GLENN: So I bought an old Toyota land cruiser. And I just -- I just wanted it to work. Okay? Just wanted it to work.

STU: Yeah. Right.

GLENN: And now three years later. Three years later, this place, that I don't know what I was thinking. This place that is -- is working on it. Uh-huh.

Because I blew a gasket last summer. And I'm like, okay. Guys. Put it in a box. Just put it in a box. And send it to me.

STU: So it's an old land cruiser you were sending.

GLENN: To reposition. So you can actually use it, you know what I mean?

STU: How old is it?

GLENN: 1976.

STU: So modernizing it a little bit.

GLENN: Yeah. So put it in a box. No, no, no. You will have it -- you will have it by Christmas.

STU: Well.

GLENN: No, no, no. I -- I made the mistake. I didn't ask which year. Okay? I just assumed, it was last -- and then they said, it will be right after Christmas. Then it will be at the end of first quarter -- now we're at the end of second quarter.

I think they sold this thing. I think it's gone. I think they maybe had a fire. Sold it. I don't know what happened to it. But I don't think I'm ever getting this car. And if they happen to be listening. Put it in a box, and ship it to me. Good God Almighty. You know what, what's happening to us now, now, I have -- an old cabin that was the original rat-infested, falling apart cabin, built in like 1890. And in it, is the original wood stove. And it says right on the front. You know, made in Ohio.

1891. And I have often thought. I mean, the town that that cabin is in, is still only 500 people. So I can't imagine how few people there were living in that area. When that came and arrived in the Wells Fargo area in 1891. And I thought, imagine what a big deal this was. Back then.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I bet neighbors came from miles around, to see the new stove. If you would have just gotten a new car, I wouldn't -- I would have been like, oh. Seen it in the parking lot. Walked around it. You would have talked to me. Blah, blah, blah. Now, I want to drive it. I've got to see this car. It's like the Wells Fargo wagon. We're going back to a time where they're like, wow. You got a new spoon. Wow.

STU: See, this is the best argument for Biden's presidency. He's increasing the drama for every purchase. You don't think it's going to come. It's amazing.

GLENN: Yeah. Lots of drama. Lots of the regime. All right. Let me tell you about RealEstateAgentsITrust.com. If you're thinking about selling or buying a home. It's not a piece of cake. Especially right now. There used to be more buyers than sellers. But that's going to change quickly. If you just cast your -- you know, hook out there. Good luck. You need to know where the fish are biting. You need somebody who is -- is really good at these waters. So may I recommend, before you just hire some real estate agent, you -- you write to RealEstateAgentsITrust.com. Just go to RealEstateAgentsITrust.com. It's going to ask, are you buying or selling? Where? And usually within five minutes, but we -- I think we guarantee, no longer than an hour.

We will get you the name of the person that we feel we have vetted that is the best in your area if we have somebody in your area. There are 10,000 real estate agents that want to work. And they're on the waiting list. But we -- I think we have 2,000 that are actually on the official list. And that's because we are very, very careful on who we recommend to you. Because this is my company. And you and I have a relationship. It's RealEstateAgentsITrust.com. RealEstateAgentsITrust.com.

(OUT AT 10:46AM)

GLENN: This is the Glenn Beck Program. We're -- we're glad you're here. Let me -- let me play something from Chuck Todd, that happened over the weekend. On Biden. And his grades on the economy.

VOICE: As Democrats look ahead to November. They see a lot of reason for concern. Their top concern, likely the economy. And while measuring the country's economic fissure right now is complicated. The nation's (inaudible) is certainly not.

In fact, the consumer sentiment index from the inner state of Michigan is probably the best thing we have to measure where people think the economy is.

When Biden took office, it sat at '79. It went up a little bit. In sort of B-plus territory. With the covid response improved, it's now sitting at 62.8.

It's basically a failing grade, if you want. Before -- just before the pandemic hit, February 2020. This index was hitting at 101. People felt really good about the economy.

GLENN: Uh-huh. So he's saying --

STU: Huh.

GLENN: F, Joe Biden. That's what he --

STU: Really? I thought you're supposed to say, let's go Brandon.

GLENN: No, well, but he said failing grade.

That's basically an F. It's like if you're filing -- it would be filed under Beck Glenn. This would just be filed under F Joe Biden.

STU: Got it. Definitely my mistake.

GLENN: By the way, if you missed the show. You missed the explanation of what the president was talking about within on -- on -- well, you know, on -- on the one word that describes America. This came out on Friday. I want to play it.

BIDEN: America is a nation that can be defined in a single word. Excuse me. The foothills of the Himalayas with Xi Jinping. Traveling with him, traveled 17,000 miles when I was vice president. I don't know that for a fact.

GLENN: What the hell is that?

STU: Is he ever actually -- like, is there -- I don't know. Ten minutes later, does he get to the word? I've seen this clip. But I have not seen, did he actually get to a word at some point?

GLENN: Nobody actually watched the whole thing. So it's very difficult. Very difficult to get through it.

STU: Okay. That's unfortunate. I will say, probably the best moment of his presidency though.

GLENN: Because of what he revealed? That we revealed on today's podcast. If you missed hour number one, get today's podcast. We introduce you to why he said that.

A gentleman named Niblick. Yeah. He's a Sherpa guide. That I think sometimes the president talks to in his head. So...

STU: This is a real problem for our country. I don't know if anyone realizes it. We can laugh about it all we want. But we are all in danger, in physical danger.

GLENN: Yeah. We really are.

STU: Of giant explosions going off in your town. That is what we're in danger of. Missiles flying over the polar ice caps, and landing on your city. That's what is at stake here.

GLENN: And you know what's crazy? They said, they felt that that could happen. That's why we had to get rid of Donald Trump, we have to get rid of him. Because he could get us into a war. This guy did get us into a war. He's already done that. And now he's talking up nuclear war. And he has no clue, as to what he was talking about. This was not funny on Friday when I saw that. My first reaction was, we're going to be vaporized. We're all going to be vaporized. And then today you laugh because you don't have -- I mean, we are all going to be vaporized, so we might as well go out laughing. But is there anybody that takes this seriously? Anyone. Anyone. Washington. Anybody. Raise a hand. Do I see a hand?

STU: This has to be constant dinner conversation around Washington. You go to any steakhouse in Washington, on Friday, at about 6:30 p.m. and every table is talking about how -- what do we do? Is this guy going to make it? Is he going to talk us into a war?

GLENN: I would like to know the plan. You know they have talked about it. So I would like to know the plan. Please, just share with us. If it ends up with George Soros, in the big -- just as I have foreseen. And he swivels around and he's in the Oval Office. Good. Just tell me. Just let me know. At least we can be prepared. I just don't -- we don't need anymore shocks. We just don't.

STU: I'm not sure how we prepare for that one, exactly. Especially you. Because I will say this to Mr. Soros who seems like a great guy, I never had anything to do with any of the things Glenn said about you. Why are you on the cover of Glenn's book The Great Reset? I don't know. I didn't design it. It was Glenn. All of this was Glenn. I stayed here.

GLENN: Just as I have foreseen. All your friends will abandon you.

STU: I stayed here the entire time, to work on the inside, to prove the truth about the wonderful man George Soros.

GLENN: By the way, we have a special, on Wednesday night. A serious look at the president's mental health. That is Wednesday night. The Wednesday night special.

"That is Where We Are, America:" 15 Lines from ‘1984’ That Have Come True

Glenn has been warning for a while now that George Orwell’s dystopian novel, “1984,” reads like a newspaper today. Well, he recently stumbled upon an article that lays it all out. Glenn reviews the article from The Federalist, “15 Times 2024 Was Orwell’s 1984,” that shows just how dystopian our society has gotten: "That is where we are, America. We are living in 1984."

GLENN: Let's say, hello, and welcome back to Stu Burguiere. hello, Stu.

STU: Hey, Glenn, how are you?

PAT: Good. Nice to have you. Nice to have you here.

Let's go true a couple of things here. I was reading a story about Donald Trump getting ready to go to the debate next week.

And he's preparing and people are speculating. Why would he ever accept?

Why would he -- so you think Donald Trump is not going to accept all of the baby conditions that Joe Biden has set for the -- for the debate?

Of course he will.

He's not going to be set. They won't say to him. Oh, well, we wanted to debate.

But he wouldn't. He'll do it. And he will do pretty well.

But Joe Biden is going to do better than he probably would, in any other format. And Donald Trump said, they'll probably pump him up.

Now, I don't know if -- I don't know if that is true. But it sure explains the performance of let's say, the State of the Union address. Where he was vigorous.

He was like, whoa!

Who is this guy?

I believe, and we won't know for decades, but I believe they are juicing him, on important nights.

This is not new, this shouldn't come as a conspiracy theory or a shock to anybody.

They did it with JFK, and they're -- they did it with FDR. In fact, FDR is probably the closest parallel to Joe Biden. FDR, the war was going well.

We're starting to turn the tides on -- on Germany. But we hadn't gone on to D-Day yet.

I'm sorry. FDR comes back from the meeting with Stalin.

And Churchill in Tehran. And as he comes back, he's got a really bad violent cough.

He starts to lose weight. He's constantly fatigued. His daughter Anna was so freaked out by all of it. That she pressed the doctors. Please, could you please have him see a cardiologist, at Bethesda. So he went in to Bethesda hospital, for examination.

And when he came out. Everything was great. No. The president is in perfect health. However, according to the medical notes, that were published, six decades later, that doctor diagnosed him with reduced lung capacity. Hypertension. Or high blood pressure.

Which we didn't have a way to treat back then. Acute bronchitis.

And most seriously, acute congestive heart failure. So now, they're not treating him, because we didn't have the medication.

The only treatment was regulating a patient's lifestyle. And, you know, herbal drugs. And then telling him, don't drink alcohol.

Tobacco. Don't do any of that. So that means in May of 1944. A month before D-Day. The daily schedule of the US. Unbeknownst to the American people, was only four hours a day.

He could only work and be involved four hours a day.

Now, he did that for a while. And he started to improve a little bit. But in July, of 1944, he had another doctor examine him. And said, he's not going to survive the term.

And he's got another full-term coming up.

And there's an election. And I don't think he will make it for the entire full-term in office.

Panel of experts were called in. They all examined.

And they all agreed. He's not going to make it.

Okay?

Did the American people know that?

No!

They didn't. It was too important to the country, to make sure that he looked strong and vigorous.

Well, what do you think is happening with Joe Biden?

Do you honestly think that things that have been done before, are not being done right now?

And what's disturbing about it, is these people work for us.

Now, I understand, maybe. Perhaps. In war. Although, no. I don't. No, I don't.

I need a president that is vigorous.
And if a president is not vigorous, especially at a time of war, I don't know if you're paying attention to what's going on in the world. But we are growing ever so close, to nuclear war.

There was a -- what was it. Oh, it was one of the former Soviet satellite states. And the president came out, and he's like, look, you can think, whatever you want about the United States. Or whatever you want about Russia.

But we're out of this. Because. Both cannot back away from this. And I think we're months away from a nuclear war. And somebody has to stand up and say, get to the peace table.

And it's -- it's very compelling. Very compelling to listen to him. So should we know about the President's health? Of course we should. But we won't.

Because we are living in the days of 1984. Listen to these 15 things, that Monroe Harlis (phonetic) pointed out in the Federalist. Fifteen ways that 1984 is 2024. Quote, from the book, the party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final and most essential command. Have you seen this? Have you seen the party demand you to reject your eyes and ears? All the time.

We're seeing it all the time. Two, endless wars. Quote, they add nothing to the wealth of the world, since whatever they produce is used for purposes of war. And the object of war is always to be in a better position in which to wage another war. End quote.

Have you seen the video of Joe Biden talking about American weapons being used for direct strikes inside of Russia?

And why -- why -- why do some people speculate, that the real purpose of this is to get rid of all our own old weapons so we can make new weapons, which will be better in the next war.

Doesn't this sound exactly like 1984. Number three, separating babies from mothers at birth. Quote, from the book, already we're breaking down the habits of the revolution which have survived from before the revolution.

Children will be taken from their mothers at birth, as one takes eggs from a hen. What exactly is the issue here?

Well, the issue is: The well-being of a child.

A living, breathing human, who was created for the sole purpose of being sold and ripped away from her mom.

This is -- this is something that is happening through surrogacy. And honestly, later in life, it is happening, because of political correctness.

Four, hatred of purity and goodness. I hate purity. I hate good is not.

I don't want virtue to exist anywhere. I want everyone to be corrupt to the bones. End quote.

Well, did -- did anybody see what -- what happened to Butker for being a Christian?

They tore him apart. Condemned him. Ray Rice. Nothing compared.

Five, the news lies. One knows the news is all lies anyway, from 1984.

Yeah. Well, what do we think? Do we all know that the news is nothing, but a lie? And now the news is saying, they are fighting advertise information?

Six, the destruction of the family. The sex impulse was dangerous to the party. And the party had to turn it to account. They had played a similar trick with the instinct of parenthood. The children on the other happened were systematically turned against their parents and taught to spy on them and report their deviations. The family had become, in fact, an extension of the thought police.

Do I need to give you an example? Seven, political correctness.

Don't you see the whole aim of newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?

In the end, we shall make thought crime literally impossible because there are no words in which to express it.

Producers. Birthing people. Chest feeding. Eight, persecution of political opponents.

Power is a means. It is an end. The object of persecution is persecution.

Reporter, President Trump refers to himself as a political prisoner and blames you directly.

What's your response, sir. He just smiles.

Nine, the innocent are suffering.

How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?

By making him suffer. Exactly barbecue by making him suffer.

Obedience is not enough. Unless he's suffering.

How can you be sure, he's obeying your will and not his own.

How about the 75-year-old Paulette Harlo, who is in poor health.

She also was somebody who -- I believe survived a -- a communist cooperation catch.

She's in prison for two years, for praying outside of an abortion clinic.

Truth is redefined. Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two equal four.

11, hypocrisy from government agencies. The ministry of peace concerns itself with war. The ministry of truth with lies. The ministry of love with torture. And the ministry of plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental. Nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy.

They are deliberate exercises in double think. Remember, the FBI is a terrorist organization.

It's the American Stasi. It exists entirely to terrorize the American people on behalf of a corrupt and evil regime.

No, no, no.

The FBI is the center of truth.

Contradicting beliefs. Double think means to the -- has the means -- the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one mind simultaneously, accepting both of them.

Just so we're clear here. Democrats who are campaigning against Trump. Based on dubious charges of sexual assault. They engineered.

Are still inviting people like Bill Clinton to headline big ticket events, along with his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. Even though that's been well-established, they're still okay with that.

Thirteen, dates altered. Every record has been destroyed or falsified. Every book, rewritten. Every picture has been repainted. Every statue, street building has been renamed.

Every date has been altered.

Well, in an attempt to replace Easter, the most important Christian holiday of the year with Transgender Day. I think, you know, that kind of does it. This is the beginning, and worse is coming.

Fourteen, no trust. We have cut the links between child and parent, between man and man. No man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer. But in the future, there will be no wives. There will be no friends. And statistics are lies.

The fabulous statistics continue to pour out of the telescreen.

As compared with last year, there was more food. More clothes.

More houses. More furniture. More cooking pots.

More fuel. More helicopters. More books. More babies. More of everything. Except for poverty, disease, crime, and insanity.

That is where we are America. We are living in 1984.

Is THIS Why Democrats Want to Draft Our Daughters?

Is THIS Why Democrats Want to Draft Our Daughters?

The Democrat-controlled Senate is debating a version of the National Defense Authorization Act that includes a plan to register women for selective service…which would make them eligible for the draft. But Senators like Utah’s Mike Lee are standing up against it. Sen. Lee joins Glenn to explain what’s going on here. Why would the Democrats do this? Are they REALLY that woke? And does it have any chance at passing? Sen. Lee also responds to Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn’s statements that seem to support registering our daughters for selective service …

GLENN: Chris Bedford has a great article out on the Blaze.com today. The Democrat's strange obsession with drafting your daughters.

I don't even understand. I mean, I understood this long ago. It was a way for Democrats, who didn't like war, to kind of, you know, ramp up the odds that we wouldn't go to war, if, you know, we had a draft.

And then we drafted your daughters. Nobody would want to go to war. I get that. Except, the Democrats are now the pro-war party.

So what the hell is happening?

And this just seems to have come out of nowhere. The most outspoken voices on this, are Chip Roy. And Mike Lee. And Mike is -- Mike is with us now. Can you please tell us what is happening with the draft stuff, Mike? Why is this happening?

MIKE: Yeah, look, the draft our daughters agenda has no place in our national defense. I think what they're trying to do. They're trying to engage in this, this sort of radical egalitarian exercise, where for aesthetics purposes, we're deciding to just show how woke we are. How open-minded we are.

GLENN: Do you really think that's -- do you really think that's motivating them at all?

MIKE: Well, yes. Because I can't fathom any other reasons why they would want to do it.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

MIKE: Look, you don't send women to fight. As long as able-bodied men exist and are available to fight, it's a fundamental notion. You don't even have to get to a moral question on this. It's a survival question. To draft our daughter's push, has been something that keeps getting recirculated every two years.

It's failed before every single time. Congress has rightly rejected previous attempts to draft women.

And they're quietly trying to slip it into the NDAA. The National Defense Authorization Act.

It's a bill that Congress passes once a year, to establish priorities for military. But people have already said no to it. It's an underhanded tactic, to include it in the base bill of the defense authorization act.

We should be putting policies like this, revolutionary policy into it.

It's very similar -- what they have been doing -- putting this together, and then ramming it through the Senate floor. Telling us we have no opportunity to amend it once it gets to the floor.

Someone will start sounding the alarm bells now, before it gets to the Senate floor or the House floor saying, absolutely not. The American people are going to take this.

GLENN: Okay. So you said it was a matter of survival. Explain that.

MIKE: Well, okay. So the purpose of having a military and therefore the purpose of having a draft, to staff the military, is to break things and kill people, just to put it very bluntly.

And so you don't -- you don't put women out there, as long as able-bodied men exist, and are able to fight.

For all sorts of reasons, including the fact that you -- you've got -- that men have this biological advantages in war, that need to be utilized. And it just sends all the wrong messages.
To our own people, and to whatever country or entity that we're fighting.

That our -- our able-bodied men are not all going to go out there.

We will send women instead.

Sends all the wrong messages. And that's not going to work well.

And so, every time people hear this, they need to reiterate their desire. If they feel the same way, they should repeat the phrase, don't draft our daughters. Just don't do it. That goes over pretty well. Once people hear a phrase like that, they tend to back away from it. And we shouldn't let them think that this is just a noncontroversial basic housekeeping. Just, you know, upbidding our legislative book to reflect modern realities. No. This is a fundamental shift, and one that we're not going to fall for.

GLENN: I mean, one I usually don't disagree with, Marsha Blackburn.

She said, this is about opportunity. It's not about combat. It's about their opportunity to serve.

Well, you know, I just found a picture of my grandparents. My grandfather is in a -- a military Marines uniform.

And my grandmother is in a Salvation Army uniform. And, you know, they -- women served all through wars in different capacities.

You can serve, it's just your body is not made for the -- the -- for a war. You can't drag your 200-pound companion off the battlefield if you're a 125-pound woman. You might be able to, but it's not going to be easy.

MIKE: No. Exactly right. And like you, I'm -- normally, I agree with Marsha Blackburn. I had not heard her say that. Let me just respond to this point.

As it's similar to the points that others have made on this front. This is not about opportunity. Opportunities already exist.

Opportunities already abound for people of both sexes to support the military. To be part of the military. To serve in combat or noncombat position, as they may choose.

This is not about that. This is about whether we will use the coercive force of the state. Have the coercive force of the United States government, in order to -- a point of a gun, order someone to take steps that could result in their being drafted. In their being brought up at the point of a gun. To a battlefield somewhere.

We shouldn't do that. We're not going to do that. This is not about opportunity. This is about right/wrong. This is about survival.

GLENN: Right. I am not for a draft in any case.

I think, you know, there's some people who disagree with me, who are in the military.

But I think there's a draft brings people in, that have no desire to be there. No desire to really fight.

I mean, unless we're in World War III, which we could be. Check the clock.

Unless we're in World War III. And the country needs, you know -- I think you always keep to a system, where it's a volunteer army for as long as you possibly can.

Because you get the people who are mentally and physically capable and ready to do it.

MIKE: You're exactly right, Glenn. But this is where you get tricky. Because you're right. And I think most people would agree with you, including most -- many of the people pushing this effort to require women to register with the selective service. What they would say here is, oh, this isn't about the draft. This is just about requiring them to register with the selective service.

Whether or not we actually have a draft. Well, Congress would have to authors that, before we could draft nip.

See, that's where you -- it's -- it's if you get hooked on that one.

You can say, oh, well, I'm not voting to draft women.

I'm just voting to require to register with the selective service. And then next time, if we are facing World War III or some other conflict.

For whatever reason, in order to survive. We've got conscript people involuntarily into the military. It will be automatic, because women will already be registered with the selective service. So that's the decision that we have to look to right now. We have to treat this as, do we want to draft women?

And I believe that among Eric and other people. The answer is a resounding no. And it should be.

GLENN: Let me ask you this.

My sister was freaking out a couple weeks ago.

Because they made it automatic now. We used to have register every mail registered.

When you turned 18. You register for selective service.

And it always freaks you out as a teenager. Wait a minute. I have to, what?

But, you know, we haven't seen a draft since the '60s or '70s. And it's just not -- it's just not in the cards.

But why are all these things changing right now?

What is going on, Mike?

Some people will look at this and go, they'll get us ready for war.

Are they? Or is this just -- what is this?

MIKE: Okay. So I think the best way to understand this. From years ago, at an event post by the Enterprise Institute, I heard someone give a speech about they talked about, ways in which we should be wary of a government, as it becomes more efficient, through technology and otherwise.

Government efficiency can be, sounds like, often is a good thing. He pointed out, that in some areas where civil liberties are confirmed, hyper efficient government poses a greater threat to our liberty. Perhaps this is one of them.

Where, new steps, you go out to take an affirmative step that takes people focused on it, where it happens automatically. They don't even think it through all that much. And perhaps they don't want people thinking about it. They just want to register them on their own. Sort of like a government is efficient in a lot of ways that otherwise would undermine our liberty, with the way that it spies on people. For example, under Section 702 applies that that's an example of another efficiency that undermines our liberty.

We ought to watch out for all of those.

GLENN: Hmm. Mike, thank you so much.

Any just on the Senate race today? In Utah. I know you didn't endorse anybody.

MIKE: Well, yes, I did not endorse that race. I did endorse in the Second Congressional District and the Third Congressional District.

The second I endorsed Colby Jenkins. Who is a fantastic human being. A Green Beret. And I encourage everybody to go and vote for him. Also on the third congressional district in Utah. Dr. Mike Kennedy. Both a doctor and a lawyer, proud public servant, state senator. And somebody who loves the country very much.

So looking forward to the results tonight.

GLENN: All right. Thanks, Mike.

Appreciate it. God bless. All right.

Is America Doomed? How YOU Can Restore Hope & Save the Republic | Glenn TV | Ep 364

There’s a powerful darkness that has stretched its arms all across America. But will that darkness end our nation, or will it instead cause Americans to reach deep down and discover the capabilities we all have to turn our country back to the ideals our Founding Fathers inspired? Four years ago, amid tyrannical COVID policies, Black Lives Matter riots burning down U.S. cities, and D.C. politicians hell-bent on dividing Americans, Glenn invited you to join him virtually for July Fourth at the Standing Rock Ranch in Idaho. But with the 2024 presidential race in turmoil, an aged and ailing President Joe Biden, and Donald Trump still facing persecution from the Left, today we need answers more than ever before. So join Glenn again this Independence Day as he takes you on a tour through his ranch while using the vast, isolated mountains to teach lessons from history that may give us the answers we need to restore this nation. From Benjamin Franklin’s inspiring words at the Constitutional Convention to George Washington’s position flag and the importance of the song "Amazing Grace," Glenn reminds us all just how sacred America’s land truly is. He’s joined by the Millennial Choirs & Orchestras and David Osmond, who perform beautiful, patriotic songs that help bring these stories from history to life. Like men, we’re refusing to read directions. This time, the directions are the Constitution of the United States. So this Fourth of July, join Glenn to rediscover the steps you can take to restore hope and save the Republic.

The Most Important Thing You Can Do This Fourth of July

The biggest issue with our country, Glenn says, is that we haven’t stuck to our mission statement. How many of us even know what it is? This Fourth of July, Glenn invites you to read it. It’s called the Declaration of Independence and if you don’t want to read a dusty old document, Glenn will read it to you — it’s THAT important. But he also reads from the original draft of the Declaration, which debunks one of the Left’s biggest lies about the founding of America.
