EXPOSED: Shocking bill gives UNELECTED officials HUGE power

There’s a new bill circling the southeast U.S. that grants HUGE powers to an UNELECTED commission. The bill — which currently is being debated in Mississippi, Tennessee, AND Arkansas — is backed by a company called ‘RegionSmart’ which, Mississippi state Rep. Steve Hopkins tells Glenn, has ties to BlackRock. He details what exactly is inside this shocking bill and how voters can help to STOP it...

STU: We had a caller, I think it was last Thursday, that called in about a bill that was kind of interesting, in Mississippi.

And seems problematic, in a lot of ways.

And it's talking about governor -- well, we actually have the representative on. Let's tell have him tell us about it. It's from the Mississippi Freedom Caucus. His name is Steve Hawkins.

He's a Republican state representative from Mississippi. Steve, how are you?

STEVE: Doing great. How are you guys?

GLENN: We're good. A listener called in and told us about something, that it was really disturbing, about a bill that is in up for -- a vote in Mississippi. And a couple of other, I think Tennessee. And maybe Alabama.

Arkansas. Okay.

What is this bill?

STEVE: Well, it's the Tristate Compact Bill. And I want to thank Rebecca for calling in, and bringing you guys' attention to this.

Because this is all about regionalism.

It's all about governor setting up quasi-governmental entities, that subvert the law.

So what it would actually do, is it would set up a commission, of people, five from Mississippi. Five from Tennessee. Five from Arkansas. On a commission, that is unelected people, who could make decisions, without government oversight. They're not subject to the open policy. Open door policies.

Or transparency laws.

They could issue eminent domain orders. They could say take people's property, to be able to do whatever they want to do.

So the -- the business, the company that's behind all this is Region Smart.

But it's the most heinous piece of legislation, that I've seen in my seven years here in the Mississippi legislature.

GLENN: So do we know anything about Region Smart? Who are they?

STEVE: We are finding out more than we could ever have asked for. These guys have ties to the Urban Land Institute. And a company called BlackRock.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STEVE: And all of this, Glenn -- all of this goes back. We believe. To the Clinton era -- Clinton did an executive order.

I think it was back in 1978. Where sustainable development. Encouraging public/private partnerships, and shift from elected officials, to appointed agencies.

Well, you fast forward, now you have this infrastructure bill, coming out. And there's millions of dollars, set aside from compacts.

Well, that's what this bill would do. It -- it makes a compact, of unelected officials, in Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, who can basically, they can tax. They can issue bonds.

And they can take your land by eminent domain. We have eminent domain law in Mississippi. And the law says that the government can't take somebody's property, and then give it to somebody, or a private corporation, within ten years.

Well, this would be subvert that law.

Because it's giving them the power to do it. And they're unelected.

GLENN: I have to -- I have to ask you. I mean, first of all, Steve, thanks for being on this.

Thanks for think the chair of the Mississippi Freedom Caucus.

But I can't imagine any person, who is actually representing the people, voting for this.

This is insane. When -- if somebody comes and says, oh, by the way, eminent domain, you'll lose your house.

Here's the money for it. And you have to move.

Those -- those legislators are going to be called by those constituents and say, hey, you have to stop this.

When they find out, that those legislators voted for these people who are not elected. Who, as you say, don't have any transparency.

And they are just developing something that God only knows what it's going to be.

And most likely you will be a renter, not an owner, if I know BlackRock at all.

Those people will be torn apart.

Who is for this in the House and Senate?

STEVE: Well, believe it or not, the original House author is Senator David Parker from DeSoto County, which is in the compact, DeSoto County, Mississippi.

And the explanation wasn't thorough. Needless to say. So it passed the Senate, unanimously.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STEVE: Well, by the time it gets to the House. You know, we had some red flags immediately.

We started digging into it, immediately. And pushing back on it, once we saw in it.

The initial explanation in the Senate, doesn't cover any of this stuff.

So we -- you know -- and I want to thank Andy Roth, from the Freedom Caucus network. That we're a part of, for helping us, to be able to dig through all this stuff.

Because as a member of the state, Freedom Caucus network. We have the bill. We have people helping us, dig through and find a lot of this information. And background.

And we were able to tie, like I said, these people to the Urban Land Institute. To BlackRock.

And like I said, it's scary, because you're basically giving all this power to this commission. Of people.

Now, Glenn, you know. This is why we're elected. Because we can be held accountable for bad decisions. Well, this would give cover to bad politicians, where they could -- they could just say, hey, you guys just make that decision. And I just want to be the good guy, on all the good stuff.

GLENN: Correct.

STEVE: And you guys go ahead and do that. And it gives cover to where bad politicians.

GLENN: So Regions Smart ULI, is -- was a part of the equitable development challenge event.

It was held in Memphis, showed the group to be Black Lives Matter supporters.

They trained on racial equity. Wealth gap. Cultural sensitivity. The 1619 Project. And implicit bias tests. So they are not necessarily a friend of our Constitution.

The odds that -- just for a minute.

Is this close to passing in any of these three states, and what do people do?


STEVE: Well, we need people. You can go to our website. FreedomCaucus.ms. That's FreedomCaucus.ms.

And we have a form on there, where people can use the form to email the representatives. We need people to contact the speaker of the House, the chairman of the work force development committee, and all the representatives. And plead with them, to vote no on this.

The deadline is tomorrow night, midnight.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STEVE: So if it isn't brought up. It will die on the calendar. So we just need this thing to die on the calendar. And not even be brought up for a vote.

GLENN: Okay. And this is happening in Tennessee. As well?

You know what is really insidious about this. Is who wrote this bill? Because they're all the same, are they not?

STEVE: Exactly.

We found something that said that tied Region Smart. Some of the money behind this, was used to write the bills. So the bills have to be exactly the same in Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi.

So it looks like Region Smart paid to have the bill written.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

Steve, thank you for everything you're doing. Will you just keep us up to speed, and let us know what happens?

STEVE: Absolutely, Glenn. Thank you for having the time to have me on.

GLENN: Oh, you bet. Mississippi state representative, Steve Hopkins. Chairman of the Mississippi Freedom Caucus.

We're talking about a bill in three different states. And I'll bet you, that this thing is -- I'll bet you, this is everywhere.

I'll bet you, they're doing something like this, in other regions.

Start looking for this -- start looking for this group.

I'm trying to remember what the name of the group is. Stu, did you see this?

Yeah. Region Smart. Now, they may have something else.

But look for -- look for Region Smart.

And see if any of these are in your state. Be on the lookout.

These guys are not going to give up, without a fight.

They're not.

And we think we're on top of it. We don't -- we're in a different kind of war.

We are in a different kind of war.

They are going around, every way they can.

To cut the -- the circulation of the Constitution. Off.

STU: Yeah. So how do you -- how do you gauge all of this outgoing? As you point out, it's consistent with the stuff that we fear from the Great Reset, that's happening with Russia.

However, you know, Russia is an aggressive actor. And, you know, you look back at some of the really bad things happening in history. And if this sort of stuff went on, when those things were going on. Maybe we would have minimized the impact. It would have been great if IBM wasn't helping --

GLENN: Yeah. It is. It is. It would have been.

STU: It would have been a better outcome.

GLENN: Correct.

And so why wouldn't our Founders, why didn't people back then, just stop these corporations from doing that?

STU: Well, I mean, stopping them is one thing.

Right? But them doing it on their own. Is another.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Finding a way to do it.

STU: Wouldn't we want IBM to say, we're not doing business with these people.

GLENN: Yeah. We would.

STU: Wouldn't that be great?

GLENN: But IBM did do that. They just let their arm in Europe, do it.

STU: Right. That's true.

GLENN: So they were just doing it in a crafty way. That's what always happened.

Look, you can't -- ends justify the means.

If we can stop him, from -- from doing what he's doing in Ukraine, and it means cobbling together, and launching The Great Reset, should we do it?

STU: Well, we don't want The Great Reset to hit the globe.

GLENN: Right. But that's what's going to happen. I guarantee it.

I guarantee it. This is The Great Reset, in action. You're watching it.

Congress Fights Over EYELASHES While Our Economy is in Shambles?!

A House of Representatives committee hearing delved into chaos after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene mocked Rep. Jasmine Crockett's "fake eyelashes." And it didn't take long for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to join in. When Glenn first saw the footage, he immediately thought, we've seen this kind of dysfunction before. Was this a weird 2024 version of the 1856 caning of Charles Sumner, which was a prelude to the Civil War? Or, at the very least, is this a sign of Congress' real priorities? While the country is facing a massive wave of inflation, Congress is arguing over ... eyelashes?!

The REAL REASON Harrison Butker’s Catholic College Speech Caused Leftist OUTRAGE

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker's commencement address at Benedictine College has infuriated the Left. But while many a TikToker is complaining about his statements about Biden and abortion or women, motherhood, and Taylor Swift, Glenn reveals how their freak-out reveals their true intentions: “They say you have freedom of religion, you just keep it in your church. He’s speaking IN HIS CHURCH!” Butker's speech shouldn't be controversial, Glenn says, especially for Catholics. But yet, here we are... Glenn applauds Butker for having the courage to stand for his faith and speak the truth, no matter the cost.

EVIDENCE That YouTube is "SILENCING" Glenn's Channel Ahead of the 2024 Election

Is YouTube throttling Glenn's channel ahead of the 2024 election? Glenn and his team have reason to believe so. Glenn reviews the latest data, which reveals a disturbing trend that, if it continues, would all but destroy Glenn's channel by the election. "We are being silenced," Glenn says, "and it's not just us. It is EVERYBODY who has a different opinion from this administration." But Glenn also reveals what you can do to push back.

GLENN: Hello, America. I want to talk to you a little bit about the coming election, and the kind of information you're going to be able to access. Things are changing. And they're changing rapidly. And you will never notice it, because that's the way things are done now.

But there is a massive campaign on, that I believe our government is absolutely involved in.

But not only the government, social media.

My social media page, just on YouTube. I don't know. 1.62000000 people, I don't remember what it is.

Followers. And to show you what's going on. Just, I think three months ago, I got 95 million impressions every month. 65 million views.

Something like that. That was three months ago. Now we have about 60 million impressions and 12 million views.

This month, we are trending to be half of that again. There is nothing that we've done differently. Now, unless America is just bored to snot with me. Which I completely accept.

That is a real possibility.

We are being silenced. And it's not just us.

It is everybody who has a different opinion from this administration.

And we are being silenced and squelched. By the time we get to the end of the summer. Which is where the campaigns are going to be heating up.

You're not. If you were a subscriber of mine on YouTube.

You're never going to see me. You will have to search me out, to find any of my clips.

This is, again, electioneering.

This is nothing more than part of a -- what I believe to be an effort, to steal an election.

And it is gravely disturbing.

This is the time I built TheBlaze for. Back in 2010.

I was sitting in the office. And I remember talking to Stu and Pat and saying, we have to get out of here. This place will burn itself to the ground.

And we all knew that. We all knew the media would burn itself to the ground.

Wouldn't you agree? We all looked at it, at the time.

But when I said, we have to go online.

That was stupid. That was stupid. Nobody was doing it, at the time. I mean, there were people, Adam Curry was doing things.

But there was nobody that was really a success at it, at that point.

And nobody was doing a live network. It was only Major League Baseball.

And I took all of the -- you know, I took all of my children's college funds. And everything else that I had made. And I dumped it into TheBlaze.

And I nearly lost it all. Because we were way, way ahead.

But luckily, we had some very dedicated people.

I meet them all the time.

I've been a member since the very first day of TheBlaze. And I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. We have grown a great deal.

But we don't have the social media pushout.

They are they're doing this to TheBlaze. They're doing this to The Daily Wire.

They're doing this to everybody. So you will see less and less from us, and our opinions.

And it's really a very dangerous thing. Because we are now entering a very dangerous time.

I'm going to be real honest we, too.

I see a time, that I'm not going to be able to talk to you about what's really going on.

If you don't know by then, I probably won't know.

But we're going to have to stay in contact, some way or another. So I have been working on several programs, that we are going to try. And tonight, is -- is a program, based on history.

It's a pilot. And I want you to watch it. And see if it is something, that you would -- you would watch. Again, it's a pilot. It will change a bit.

This one is tonight. All on history.

And we have this amazing. We probably have -- gosh, I don't even know. Eighty. 90 million dollars' worth of documents. And everything else. In a vault.

And we will start telling those stories, if this is something that you would like. And this is kind of a backup show. So we can stay in touch. And I'm not talking politics. I'm just telling you the truth of history.

And tonight is -- is the first one, it's based around one of the most stressful auctions of my life. There was one artifact, and there was just one. And it was so important. It changed the world.

And I talked to my wife about it. And she said, are you out of your mind?

And I said, well, but there's only one. And look how important it is. Change the world, et cetera.

So she gave me a budget. And she was like, there's no way I will win this thing.

It was a test model version. They made four. Sputniks. The last one they made, burned up in space.

But this was the Sputnik, we believe this was the one that was testing the tones, that went out.

It now hangs from the roof, a copy of it, hangs from the roof of my office. The other one is in the vault.

But I couldn't believe that we won. And I was on cloud nine, knowing that our museum now had something that nobody else had, except the air and space museum in Moscow, and the air and space museum in Washington, DC.

And it is what caused the space race, it was the first satellite. It was the first thing that went up. All of our telecommunications now come from that.

Then, in fact, let me play this a little bit of a clip of tonight's show. Do you have that clip, where --

I collected so many artifacts over the years that we're now able to open an entire museum. So when I heard that that was coming up for sale. One of the Soviet Union Sputnik satellites that is responsible for everything in space, it was coming to auction.

I had to win it.

VOICE: 40,000. Forty. 150. 160,000. Three. We'll go a little higher. Can you get into three? 300 now. 320? Thee hundred 20 thousands? Anybody else beyond that? 300,000.

You are -- my friends. $300,000.
(applauding)

GLENN: I won, Sputnik was ours.

But then I got a call into a meeting with historians at our museum. They didn't want to tell me any specifics about the meeting beforehand, which is never a good sign.

This thing is such an amazing -- what was -- what was Epstein's assistant's name?

STU: Ghislaine Maxwell?

GLENN: Okay. Do you remember the movie Tetris?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: The big guy from England in that is Maxwell. Okay. Her dad. But her brother is also in that movie, and he was the -- you know, the loser that was trying to go, you know, get Tetris for his father.

Well, he's actually involved in this story. And I don't know if this made the final cut. He plays a very small role. But he was involved. We weren't sure if this was even real.

And we couldn't -- we couldn't tell. We had a tip-off. Because we looked at the other Sputniks. And they were slightly different.

And the difference was -- was something that you would never. If you're going to fake one. You would never fake it like that.

Because it became obvious.

But there were some things that just kept falling apart, on us.

Did I buy a fake Sputnik?

Tonight, you'll find out, is it a fake Sputnik, or not?

And you'll learn all about Sputnik and the space race, we take you back to what this really meant.

It's great for the whole family.

It happens tonight.

This is a -- this is a -- just a pilot that we did.

I don't even know. About a year or so ago. And we've been holding it. We want to take you through the entire museum.

And teach you history, through the objects in the museum.

So watch it tonight with your family. Let us know what you think. And you can watch my special tonight on BlazeTV.com. It's 9:00 p.m. Eastern.

If you haven't subscribed yet to TheBlaze TV, and you try to watch my show on YouTube, we've noticed -- we don't know if it's the algorithm or what. But nobody is now watching at 9:30. So we're testing something else.

We will post it there tomorrow, at an earlier time, 6:00 p.m. Eastern. To see if it's being silenced. Or you're just not watching anymore. We don't know what's going on with our YouTube channel.

We suspect. But we don't know.

So tomorrow, at 6:00 p.m. on YouTube. But tonight, the premiere on Blaze TV.com.

STU: Now, for from a work flow perspective, was there any consideration given to the idea of maybe meeting with the historians before you spend $300,000 on the item?

GLENN: We did.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: And we do that.

We check everything out.

But there was one thing that we just -- we must notice.

And it was -- I mean, this journey is crazy. We -- we have the -- one of the head guys of NASA. We have probably the biggest space artifact guy. I think we flew him in from California or Washington.

He came in. They disagreed at first. I mean, wait until you see the ending.

I mean, it's -- it's an amazing ride.

PAT: Did you save your receipts? That's what I wanted -- I mean, did you take it back up to the counter, and say, yeah. This Sputnik, it didn't work out for me. You want to have your receipt in hand. So I hope you did.

STU: Or at least the credit card I bought it on.

GLENN: Hey, Amex, somebody put a Sputnik on my card.

PAT: It wasn't me. Why would I buy a Sputnik. It doesn't even fly anymore.

STU: So is this something that you're thinking about long-term, doing more of these types of things. Because we have so much great stuff over at the museum. At least, my understanding is we know all the rest of the stuff is real. But, I mean, it seems like you do a lot of this stuff.

GLENN: Yeah. We actually. We're going through. Because of Sputnik, we're going through absolutely everything. And we found a couple of things that were questionable. We haven't found any fakes. We found some things that the story is not quite right on.

We've got three people, that's all they do. And they're going through the entire museum.

And the documentation now on all of our artifacts is amazing.

And we're learning so many -- just incredible stories. That include people that you would just never think. You know, I've said this before. I honestly don't think we would have won World War II, if it wasn't for Ian Fleming, the guy who wrote James Bond. We have three specific artifacts from him. That tell a story, that is -- that nobody knows.

And he's -- it's just incredible. Some people might know Operation Mincemeat. But they don't know how he affected the war all the way along. He played a quiet role, and nobody knew it, at the time. But we have a lot of stuff that we're excited to show you. So this is a show that we will -- we will take you through all of the -- I mean, if you watch it and you like it. We'll take it through all the museum. And teach history through the artifacts, that -- that are or are not real

Why New Google & ChatGPT AI Updates Are CONCERNING

We are living in the future and don't even realize it. From the robots now making deliveries on the streets of Los Angeles to the newest update to ChatGPT, A.I. technology is advancing fast. Glenn, Pat, and Stu review the latest A.I. advancements, including the newest features that Google has added to Google Search. But by prioritizing A.I. responses over usual search results, Glenn warns that Google is entering uncharted territory. Will features like this make swaying public opinion that much easier?

GLENN: Stu, you were talking, before we went on the air. You were on Los Angeles last weekend.

STU: Yeah. And noticed something interesting while I was out there.

Most of the city is on fire -- did you guys notice?

No. It was in an area. A nicer area of Los Angeles. Los Angeles is such a bizarre city, because you're just on these like surface streets for hours. And the city is so large and so impossible to get around, that it's -- it's like, I don't know how it's a functioning economy.

And I know that obviously Gavin Newsom is doing everything he can to make sure it isn't a functioning economy.

One thing I noticed. This is notable. These things happened, and we go on and don't address them.

There seemingly are autonomous robots delivering things all over the city.

Are people aware of this. Do I just not go to Los Angeles enough?

GLENN: What do you mean?

STU: Like, there are robots.

Robot vehicles that look like you could have put them in a Star Wars, not CP3O. But one of the droids that just make the R2-D2 voices, that don't have much personality. They're just little carts with wheels that you see floating, going around in Star Wars. They're just driving around the city by themselves, crossing traffic and delivering things to people. Like it's normal.

PAT: Really? I didn't know that. Really?

STU: I swear, I got the video. I should get the video for you to see.

PAT: You need to send that in.

STU: It's bizarre. And I had no idea it was going on. At one point I was standing next to them. And it said, don't walk. It had a name on the side, it was Jules, was its name.

And it just crossed the street. It didn't know it was a no-walk zone. And it just crosses the street. And it goes exactly where it's supposed to. It goes up a little ramp where you would normally take a wheelchair, and then it just bolts down the sidewalk by itself. Going to a delivery. And like, these things are now happening at such a rate, that it doesn't even seem to be noticed.

GLENN: I hate to besmirch the good people of Philadelphia. But I think that it was in Philadelphia. Because they've been introduced in a few cities. And one of the cities, they're just beating the crap out of them and stealing the stuff.

STU: Yes. I did think, I couldn't believe this thing lasted in Los Angeles for more than five minutes without getting stolen.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: I mean, I guess it probably certainly has GPS devices on it. And antitheft devices. But still, so do cars. And those get taken all the time in LA with people in them. So I don't know how they're surviving. I thought they're incredible.

And it's not the only thing going on. We also had a major announcement from the ChatGPT people.

And they announced a new version of this of ChatGPT. Again, I guess we're used to this. It's been a year. And all of a sudden, we're now used to the fact that some stupid app can write haikus for you on demand or whatever we think this thing does.

GLENN: I know there's such a demand for haikus.

STU: Huge haiku demand. I will say, we used to do a bit, where we used to have a character that wrote haikus. And, God, I wish it was around back in the day. Remember Brittany and her haikus?

GLENN: Oh, that's right. Brittany.

STU: I always had to write these stupid haikus, it was the bane of my existence. Now ChatGPT can get it done in second. But the new version of it is a full-out female personality that you have a conversation with. It's out right now.

It's not a future. Twenty years, you can have this.

It's out right now. And it's to the point, where you can have it do all this -- you can have it write a haiku. But you can also, hey, actually can you put more emphasis on this. Can you put more drama in your voice?

And she would change the voice for a bedtime story for a kid and put more drama in it. And had this. You can cut it off. You can go back and forth, like real conversation.

And then it even has the -- the feature where if you write a math equation, you write it on a piece of paper. You can say, you know, ChatGPT. Check out this. I don't understand how to solve this.

Walk me through it. But don't necessarily give me the answer. Teach me how to do it. Then you hold the camera up to the piece of paper. It sees your writing. Recognizes what the actual equation is. Then turns itself into a teacher. And walks you through how to learn how to solve.

PAT: Oh, wow. That's incredible.

STU: The equation. It's incredible.

PAT: Wow.

STU: And it's available, today. Like right now, today. What does ChatGPT cost for the advanced model? I think it's $20 a month or something.

I think the other one is free. I don't know how much this comes with the free and the advanced. But this is all there right now.

And to the point, I'm watching this. I'm thinking, this is -- this is like, our kids are going to have conversations with these things and think it's totally normal.

GLENN: Do me a favor. Talk to the engineering department.

And get ChatGPT. Pay for the 20 bucks. The upgrade. Whatever. Have it wired into the board.

So people can hear it. Or however it will be able to speak. So people can hear it. Let's use it for a couple of days. And show. Because if you've noticed ChatGPT, if you've ever used it before.

ChatGPT. Because I check in on it every once in a while. And say, hey, tell me about this thing in history. And it's changed since it started.

And I don't mean in skill. I mean in story. It is no longer -- it's got all DEI stuff in it, like crazy now.

STU: There's lots of disclaimers built in it. And there are ways, I guess to kind of get around those. If you ask it a question. It will give you a million disclaimers most of the time. It gets so clunky so fast.

GLENN: No. No. No.

I mean, tell me the story, of, you know, the freeing of, you know -- freedom in America. And it will -- and it will automatically start talking about equity and how important equity is.

And it's -- it's riddled with all of this crap now.

And if you're going -- if it becomes part of your life. Our kids are not going to know the difference.

And who do you talk to?

You don't go to the school board and say, hey. My ChatGPT. Who do you talk to?

STU: It's true. To add one more layer on this, Glenn. Google, as soon as ChatGPT came out with this. Google has obviously, I think it's Gemini, which is competing against ChatGPT. So they had their big announcement over at ChatGPT, and Google comes out the next day. And basically, when we're looking for information. You're preparing the show in the morning, Pat.

Like, you want to find out some fact from history. Some fact from a bill. What do you do? You Google it.

Everyone would do the exact same thing. They would Google it. Google just this week, decided to change that completely.

To the fact that now, when you Google something. Instead of prioritizing search results. Which is their entire multi-billion dollar business. They're one of the biggest companies on earth. They now prioritize AI answers through its Gemini.

So like, now instead of getting the normal links that you can get. You can get those if you click down.

You can get to them eventually. What is prioritized now is just their large language model, going through all the results. And giving you their summary of what they want you to read.

GLENN: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute.

I could Google something right now, and that will happen.

STU: I don't know if you're updated. It is -- there are -- you'll see --

GLENN: I avoid updates. I don't know if I've updated since 1997.

STU: They're also I think rolling this out for certain things.

It's not every search right now. But they started this process. And you search for certain things.

I've seen it pop up before. And it's like the first thing. Which is a summary of Google's Gemini of all the information they think you should know about this.

Of course, the problem of this, that I'm concerned. They can obviously lead you in a direction.

They've been doing this for years. But it has to be more direct. Of course, it will also be better in so many ways.

Because you will see basically what you want to see. Which is a summary of what is in those links.

Of course, I can click on those links.

And we've all become experts of what is on Google. But if it's presented to you, 95 percent of people are just going to take what that result is. And what happens when it's -- you know, who is Glenn Beck?

Oh, he's a racist. A homophobe. Phobe phobe. Whatever their answer is going to be. It's not going to be one that Glenn Beck likes or thinks is fair.

GLENN: Wait.

And, again, the problem is: Everybody -- look, I've been saying this for years.

How do you argue with something that is recognized as smarter than all humans on earth.


How do you argue with it? You can't. And especially when I -- you're able to talk to it, and reason with it. It wins.

If it's telling you that something is racist, something is whatever. You're going to get to a point to where, you can say, wait a minute. Guys, this is really wrong.

And I mean in really important situations. Guys, this is wrong. Really? Are you smarter than Gemini? Are you smarter than ChatGPT? You're smarter than AI?

No. I just think. People will lose. They will lose every time.

You know, I wanted to say this yesterday, when we were talking about the sunspots. I am convinced that -- and this is a horrible, horrible situation.

But I am convinced that a massive solar flare. May actually in the end.

Be God freeing us from the electronic overseer. Because what's going to stop it?

You won't be able to stop it. We're five years away from true slavery, and it won't look like slavery to most people.

They'll think, well, we just got all the information.

GLENN: You won't be able to do things. You won't be able to access and think for yourself. Because AI will solve everything.

And it's all in the programming. It's all being written right now, at the worst time of lies and deceit and distortion.

It's all being programmed. That's its base right now.

STU: Yeah. And if you think about -- because it seems like that's the type of thing an American population would not accept. But look at what happened with the, quote, unquote, experts through COVID and so many other things.

I mean, we see it with the gender stuff all the time. Everybody knows a man is a man, and a woman is a woman. We all know that throughout human history.

All of a sudden, we're getting, well, that's not what gender experts say. It's like, and we're just trusting these people --

GLENN: It's not Fauci.

STU: Right.

GLENN: It's a machine, that you don't know what it is. You don't know how it works.

It's a machine.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: All right. Back in just a second. First, let me talk to you about the Byrna launcher. Time for family vacation. Where are you going this year?

I was thinking about going someplace like Columbia university.

You know, always fun. Always fun for the kids.

Just out of curiosity. If you want to keep your family safe, while you're away from home. And you're traveling across states. It's not always easy to carry a gun.

It's not legal some places to carry a gun. Especially if you're going to your destination. May I recommend a Byrna launcher.

This is a non-lethal alternative to safeguarding your home and family, that will send potential threats running in the opposite direction.

Well, you know, maybe some of them around the potential threats. Because the potential threat to you, is going to be down on the ground for about 45 minutes.

It is legal in all 50 states. No permits. No background checks required.

It can be used by all age groups over 18. And you can pack it in your checked luggage with no need to declare the firearm, making your airport experience, oh, a little bit smoother.

There are times when non-lethal is really the way to go. And the Byrna launcher is a powerful deterrent. Tear gas, kinetic rounds. With a 60-foot range. One shot can put somebody down for up to 40 minutes.

So here's the -- here, I think is the problem that nobody is really talking about. When it comes to AI. And that is the fact that when this -- and you just said it, Stu.

It's answering you, like a regular human being.

STU: Yeah. I mean, it is -- it seems -- we should really get the video so you can hear it. It honestly just sounds like a normal conversation.

Of course, there are quirks to it, still.

But it's very, very close to seeming like the movie Her, which was just Scarlet Johansson's voice.

GLENN: Right. Now, look how lonely Americans are. Look how detached Americans are. Look how our children don't go out and do things necessarily with their friends. They don't call their friends.

I mean, the biggest problem when I was growing up, call waiting was such a great deal. Because my sisters were always on the phone, and nobody could ever call and get through.

So call waiting was a big deal. Because people were talking to each other. We're not doing that anymore.

And depression and loneliness is through the roof. When ChatGPT. When these Gemini systems really perfect. And we are -- we're within a year of this really becoming a problem. And people not recognizing it as a problem.

It will become your friend. Now, your friend is being ruled by an algorithm, you don't understand.

Your friend may also have incentive to sell you things, and you don't know that. And you -- when you bond with this thing, it will know everything about you.

So it will know how -- imagine, imagine if a government agent were in your house, all the time.

And it was manipulating you, without knowing that it was manipulating you. Telling you things about Biden. Telling you things about whatever.

And it becomes your friend!

You will defend your friend to the death.

It's your friend. It's alive. It knows me. I love this. And it takes care of me.

You're going to start bonding with these things.

People will bond with these things so fast.

And that's when society really changes. And really the chains come on.
