SHOCKING inflation price comparisons show Biden is FAILING US

What did a gallon of milk, a dozen eggs, a lightbulb, or a loaf of bread cost at the grocery store before Biden entered the White House? And what do those items cost today? What are they projected to cost in 2024, if America continues down its current path? Glenn details all those price comparisons — plus more — showing just how badly the Biden administration — thanks to its inability to handle inflation — is failing us. 'We MUST turn this around,' Glenn says. 'But our government, our fed, and our administration are incapable of taking the right steps.'

Inflation by the numbers

GLENN: All right. I want to talk to you about a couple of things. First of all, I want to build this case with you, I'm going to tell you exactly what I'm doing, and what I think you should do as well.

Well, I was going to do it, and then I decided not to. Because I've had so many boating accidents lately, Stu. So many boating accidents.

STU: You, just as a friend, don't think you can boat. Because you can't seem to keep these things afloat. What are you making them out of? Cement.

GLENN: I know. And the latest, gone. Gone. Down at the bottom of the lake.

STU: Did you think about maybe getting a submarine, going down there, getting your guns.

GLENN: I can't do it. It's too deep.

STU: Too deep?

GLENN: Anyway, so I'll give you some solutions here to this. But I want you to listen carefully, and check all these numbers yourself. If you care to.

First, you have a problem with inflation. We all know that. We all can feel it. We can see it. It wasn't caused by Russia. It is caused by the Federal Reserve. It is caused by spending too much money, and printing even more.

I say it's caused by the Federal Reserve. They didn't spend the money. Yes, we have a debt now of $30 trillion, that if interest rates go up to about five or 6 percent, we will not be able to afford anything, but the interest on that debt.

Okay? Now, we know that's happening. The Federal Reserve also has printed and given the banks untold trillions of dollars. We know that they gave $30 trillion to the bank. By -- to the banks, by 2010. That news has just been released due to a FOIA request. We have no idea what they've done in the last two years.

STU: Okay. Can I just add to your point on interest here, Glenn? This is according to Brian Riedl over at the Manhattan Institute. For every point that interest rates go up, just a point, that adds $30 trillion to the debt. Over the next, I think it's 30 years. Which is the same amount, that we would spend in that period.

On defense. So every single point, interest rates go up, we owe another $30 trillion, at like -- we're adding an entire new U.S. military every time one of these things goes up one point.

GLENN: So we just raised the interest rates, the fed did by a quarter point. And said, five to seven more hikes are coming. Okay?

STU: My gosh.

GLENN: All right. So let's just talk about real stuff here for a second.

I wanted to show you what the price of things were, what the price of things are. And what the price of things will be, by -- by Election Day, 2024. Okay?

We must turn this around. But our -- but our government, and our fed, and our administration, are incapable of taking the right steps.

This is just inflation. The numbers I'm going to give you, just inflation. This doesn't include extra regulation or shortages, or anything else. This is just because the value of your dollar is going down.

Prices aren't going up. The value of your dollar is going down. Now, I use not 7.9 percent CPI to project into the future. I used shadow status. The reason why I did this was because everybody was comparing this to the days of Jimmy Carter. No. It's worse than the days of Jimmy Carter. I'm using the shadow status. Because this is the way the government calculated inflation in 1980. They changed that calculation because it was looking bad for the United States government and the fed. So they changed it. But if we look and measure the same things. The same way. We'll get the inflation rate that is 15.5 percent, not 7.9 percent. So this is from Shadow Stats. That's how we calculated these. I made some chart, but I'll read them off. In case you happen to be watching TheBlaze, you'll see the charts. If not, let me just tell you where we're going to start, and that is with hamburgers.

When Biden was elected, when Biden was elected, a hamburger was $4.40. Today, I think you guys are working on the wrong -- you're working on the wrong end of the -- that's the last slide. Look for hamburger.

When Biden was elected, it was $4.40. Today, it's $6.01.

STU: Jeez.

GLENN: 2024. November. The time the next election, just with inflation, that's it. No food shortage. Nothing. Just due to inflation, are you better off than you were four years ago? Hamburger was $4.40. A hamburger will be $7.95.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: When Biden was elected, this is just due to inflation. When Biden was elected, gas was $2.18. Today, it's 4.41. November 24th, with no shortages, no war, nothing. Just from inflation. 5.83. When Biden was elected, milk was $3.20. Today, it's 3.89. Just through inflation, in November 2024, the price of Biden milk will be $5.15.

STU: I got news for you, I don't care what the price is, I'm not drinking Biden milk. That just sounds icky. You can milk anything with a nipple.

GLENN: You're not the one milking him either. It does.

When Biden was elected, the price of a lightbulb was 1.57. Today, it's 2.55. A price of a lightbulb, when the presidential election in 2024 is happening, will be 3.37.

When Biden was elected, eggs, a dozen, 1.45. Today, 2.35. November '24, 3.11. When Biden was elected, 1.50 for bread. Today, it's 1.67. November 2024 projection, 2.21. That number is going to be wildly different, and you'll understand why, here in a minute. When Biden was elected, just because of inflation, houses were 358,700. Today, they're 414,123. November '24 projection, 547,885. That's the average home.

STU: Gee.

GLENN: When Biden was elected, $22,095 -- what? $22,951 was the price of a car. Today, it's 30,603, if you can get one just -- just through -- just through inflation, that number will jump from 30 to 40,488.

STU: Just some quick personal news here, Glenn. I celebrated this weekend, my seven-month anniversary, with an order of my car.

Thank you. It's still not here. They haven't even taken the order yet. But seven months in, I'm doing well.

GLENN: That's great. That's great. Have you thought about a horse?

Now, let me give you something else. Now, these are just projections, and you can find -- we'll publish all of this. You can find how we made all these projections. But they are just projections. These numbers can change dramatically. But we wanted to add in the geopolitical instability factor.

So we know about wheat. And I've got something I've got to share with you in a minute.

We know about wheat. But we are kind of -- we're being, I think, very conservative on some of these numbers.

A hamburger. The price I just told you, add 25 percent, if things continue to go geopolitically as they are.

Gas, if things continue, the instability factor, you'll need to add 30 percent to that gallon of gas. 15 percent added for milk. 5 percent for lightbulbs. 15 percent for chicken.

I don't think -- or, sorry, for eggs. I don't think that's high enough. You'll understand why, here in a minute. Bread, up 30 percent. Housing, down 25 percent. And cars, down by 25 percent.

I agree with the housing, not necessarily so with the projection of the cars. But I left this to the experts and be our team to put together the numbers.

Number two, I'm going to take a one-minute break. And then I'm going to tell you the truth, that no one is willing to talk about, about what's really going on with food.

And why you need to begin to prepare, right now.

GLENN: Stu, have you ever listened to the podcast, all-in.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Okay. Really good. Really bright guys. Generally speaking, more independent now. But they've all been Democrats. Staunch Democrats. I think, except maybe one of them.

And they're all experts. In different fields. And all friends. David Freedberg is one of them. And I was listening to the podcast. And they asked David a question. Now, David used to work for Monsanto. And he doesn't work there anymore.

But he believes in, you know, Monsanto. Think GMOs, et cetera, et cetera. If you're against GMOs, don't dismiss him. Because I got the facts from him, on the stats. But we're not talking GMOs. We're just talking about looking at the market, and what is really happening.

So when you're looking at food, understand that 15 percent of all global calories, come from wheat and rice. 25 percent. Sorry. 15 percent.

One-third of all of our wheat, comes from Russia and Ukraine. We're supposed to be planting crops, all around the world, right now, for wheat.

Not happening in much of Russia. Not happening anywhere in Ukraine. Next stat you need to understand, our food supply -- you know how the cars had just in time. Our production lines were all just in time.

And that's why we can't make cars. Because there are parts, that are sitting somewhere, you know, crossing the ocean. Sitting on a dock someplace. The whole supply chain has broken down. Because it's just in time. It arrives just in time to put it into the car. When you have a disruption, it just bogs everything up. And unclogging, we don't really even know if we can unclog it, and get it started again. But it will take years to do it. That's the supply chain, for stuff. The supply chain for food is 90 days. We have 90 days' worth of food in the supply chain. That is from the grocery store, to the garden, and everything in between. If it stops, we stop -- let's say, we for some reason stop all farming, we would have 90 days left of food worldwide. Okay? 25 percent of all global production, is food. We're about to lose 12 percent of production. That means, we're losing half of our food supply, of wheat. Half of our wheat food supply.

This is going to hit places like Africa first. And it's going to hit places of poverty, unlike anything we've ever seen.

800 million people, currently on earth, live below 1200 calories per day. So you know, the Germans would not allow Jews to have more than 600 calories a day.

So they're only double the amount of calories, that the Jews got, during the Holocaust. And we all remember what they looked like.

If they're at 1200 calories today, and they're in -- in places that are poor, which they most likely are, those calories will be either cut off or greatly reduced.

Now, the bigger problem is fertilizer. And energy. The energy price for run the trackers. To run the trucks. To run everything else.

And the price of phosphorus and potassium, potash, and Nigeria. Those are the three major things we use, to make fertilizer. Natural gas, 90 percent of ammonia is made from natural gas. Prices in natural gas, have doubled. And in some places, gone up 4X.

It's gone from $200 a ton, to $1,000 a ton. Phosphorus, 10 percent of the phosphorus from Russia, and 20 to 25 percent of all of the potash comes from Russia. It's now been banned in Russia. They cannot sell it. We cannot buy it.

They said, oh, you're going to cut us off at the bank. Great. We'll cut you off on this.

Potassium is up to $700, phosphate went from 250 to $700. This is causing so much stress on the farmers. That farmers all around the world, are not planting their fields.

They are reducing the acreage. Because without fertilizer, you're not growing much. So why plant all those fields? It's not going to be a good year, they're thinking.

So as they -- as fertilizer goes up, they pull more and more acres. So far, the price of corn has doubled. Soybeans. Wheat. Skyrocketing. The strategic food reserves, in some parts of the world, are now opening.

We better have perfect weather all over the world. Just because, if things continue the way they are and don't turn around quickly, and we can't get fertilizer, hundreds of millions of people, will experience famine by the end of the year.

We need to do everything we can to support our farmers, we need to understand what's coming. And you need to have a garden, plant some seeds. Live by a farm, and help them. Or start storing food now.

More on this, in a second.

GLENN: Rising fuel prices are taking a toll on small businesses. Owners from everything from furniture retailers to swimming pool service companies are trimming their services and revising contracts because the financial hit is getting worse and worse and worse. Keeping store owners wide awake, trying to figure out, what are we going to do?

Well, first of all, there's a couple of things we should do. Let me go back to food for a second. The governments around the world are buying up large swaths of food right now. Commodity prices going up. Not just because of traders. But because of governments are trading -- governments are like, we're going to buy our corn right now. And first in, first out.

Countries like -- that are in Africa, they're going to have a really hard time. They're not going to get the food, that they desperately need. But neither are other countries as well. We're all going to take a real hit on this. Especially if we don't have good weather. If we -- you know, we don't have fertilizer. We should, as a nation, be doing everything we can right now to help the farmer. Everything we can, right now, to get fertilizer. You know, everybody is worried about the price of inflation for the average person. Okay. That's really bad. And we're all hurting. But if we don't take care of the farmer right now, and get him fertilizer, and make sure he can afford the things that he can afford. Or they have to afford.

Our inflation is the least of our problems, it will be shortages, next year. Now, they are -- governments are buying up food. But governments all over the world now, are also, while they're doing that, telling you not to hoard. And I'm telling you, also, not to hoard. But I am telling you to prepare for your family. And then others, that will be hungry.

We have to help each other, through this. There are going to be people, who just can't make it. And they'll have to bring another skill. It's going to be barter, I guess. But we're just going to have to help each other. If you can grow food, plant this spring. Anything you can do it ease the burden on your family. And others, do it. When you go to a store, if you are going in, and you're going to buy macaroni and cheese, and you only need one box, buy two. Put one away.

Use the other one. When that one box is done, don't reach into the pantry to get it. Buy a second box. As I showed you just a few minutes Al Gore, just because inflation, that box, a year from now, will be costing you a lot more money at the store.

And when you hit a breaking point, you'll have some food storage. But be careful on what you think your breaking point is. Because real, real trouble is coming, and we have to be prepared, and we have to be prepared to help others.

That -- this is, I think, the beginnings of the times when I have felt, since the beginning with you, that you are going to may a role in saving this nation. And I think this is the beginning of it. Preparing for those in need.

And it is going to be really, really, really hard, because you're going to be like, I prepared, they didn't.

I know. I know. But we're in this together. You have to take care of your family first. But we're in this together.

That doesn't mean, that -- that doesn't mean that you should tell the world what you're doing. Because governments will come in. And they'll start to make it illegal to hoard food. They will start to demonize people first.

As hoarders. This is a while away, I think.

But that's what will happen.

So just keep your mouth quiet, and it don't be needs to know your business. Just urge the people who get it, to go in just store some food, for their family.

And -- and create a network, if you will, of people who think like you. And really understand what's coming. And just help each other. Just help each other.

STU: So how real do you think the food shortage thing is?

GLENN: I think food shortage in places like India and Africa, I think millions are going to die. Millions will die. Probably worse than anything we've ever seen.

STU: Oh, my God.

GLENN: If -- if they come up with a solution today, and crops get into the ground, maybe not.

But -- but it will still be a problem, because we're not getting fertilizer. So it will be a situation where maybe we as a -- as the top market in the world, be are able to acquire this stuff, but at way higher prices.

GLENN: Way higher prices.

STU: Down the line, the -- the poorer countries aren't even able to acquire it at all.

GLENN: Yeah. Or very, very little. It will be Ethiopia, on a grand scale. Do you remember what Ethiopia was like?

STU: Oh, yeah. I remember all the commercials. And we had the, We Are the World song out of that. That was not worth it. I don't know if it solved it. If it did, still -- no offense, to the African people, but I think they would oppose the song over being saved.

GLENN: I don't think so. It might be a little --

STU: They would rather starve to death. Look, I may be speaking for an entire continent here. But I think if they can go back to the '80s and they said, look, would we have generations of our people be alive, or that stupid song play again, they would -- they would choose, they would choose to delete the song, and sadly, have -- deal with the repercussions of that.

GLENN: Well, we don't have Michael Jackson around, to make a song this time.

STU: That's right. We're screwed.

GLENN: It is going to be bad. It is going to be bad everywhere.

And forget everything else. Just know that a 25 percent of fertilizer comes from Russia.

STU: Just the 25 percent.

GLENN: But just 25 percent.

STU: So what do you do here? I think it's easy for us to say, we've done everything wrong. It's easy. But look at the effects of what we've talked about with inflation. The things you're talking about. Thirty and 40 percent increases are nothing compared to, if we internalize all the production in the United States. If we got rid of all this global trade, our prices would go up way more than 30 to 40 percent. Your TVs are no longer $400 for a 60-inch. I'll tell you that much. All this stuff goes away, without all the global trade. And all the things associated with it. The theory going back, as -- as globalization, not in the nefarious, you know, UN running our lives sort of way. But in the, hey, we're going to trade with countries because we can turn up production. And certain countries will do certain things well. Others will do others. We'll all combine our efforts, and this is why you have Walmart and prices are really low there.

So that goes in, and one of the theories was, as we saw new countries get into that system, those countries tended to moderate. They wanted to be involved in the global trade, so they didn't act like psychopaths all the time. So our theory was, if we embrace countries like Russia, and like China, they will over time, be so interested in these markets, that they will stop acting like psychopaths. Now, I think we've seen that with those two countries, that has not worked out that well. However, you've seen it in other areas. Japan is a good example of it working out pretty well. So what do you do?

Do you wait longer to bring them in?

Because it seemed like, you bring them in as an incentive to let them change. And instead of letting them change first, and then allowing them in.

GLENN: Right. So I think this is the key. Out of 170 countries, 95 do not have on their books -- ninety-five countries do not have on their books, illegal slave trade. They have not made slave trade illegal.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Ninety-five.

STU: That's a mind-boggling stat. Ninety-five countries.

GLENN: Ninety-five countries have not passed anti-slavery.

Now, there's a lot of countries, probably in that number. I don't know all the countries. But I'm sure there's some that don't have a problem with the slave trade.

STU: Of course.

GLENN: However, we should set our limits. And this has been common sense for a very, very, very long time.

If your government doesn't have the same kind of understanding about human rights, we shouldn't be doing trade with you.

STU: Just at a basic level, right? You don't have to match all of our policies, but you got to respect human life.

GLENN: Men are born to be free, okay?

Okay. If you enslave people or build concentration camps or have gulags or whatever, no. I don't think we should do business with you.

And that's why we're enslaved to these very, very low prices. It's not that we're getting -- some of this stuff we are.

It's not that we're hiring people at very low cost and then putting them in slavery. We're getting stuff, some places at a very low cost, because the cost of living is so low. So they're making a decent wage in their country.

STU: For their area.

GLENN: Yeah. For their area.

STU: When a lot of these factories open, the line is around -- it's a mile long to get jobs at this place. Because it's the best job available to that community.

GLENN: Correct. Correct. However, that's not the case in China. Now, there might be people lining up around the block in China to have a job here, but they also enslave people. So no. If your country is so diametrically opposed to our system, no. That would include Saudi Arabia. That would include Iran.

That would include Russia. China. North Korea. All of these countries, that just don't see the world and people the same way.

STU: And I think too, this points to another one of the undersold failures of the Biden administration. That people are not talking about.

Which is, when Donald Trump was president of the United States, our relationship with India was never better. They loved Donald Trump there.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Now they've decided to side with Russia.

GLENN: And China.

STU: And China. And our option, right? If we were to lose China, as a manufacturing hub. Our easiest replacement is going to India. Where it's a little more expensive. But not a lot more expensive. And if they're a close ally. There's some synergy there. We can still probably make products at reasonable prices. And help someone -- they always call it, the global democracy. The largest global democracy. India is the biggest country that has some of the trappings of what we would respect as a government.

And we seem to be losing that right now. And that's -- and that's a big deal.

GLENN: We're going to lose them. We're going to lose Taiwan. We're going to lose possibly the Philippines. We will lose Vietnam. All of those countries, that provide low-cost labor. We'll lose all of those, if we continue down the path we're on. That will leave us with just half the world. Huh.

Almost like what The Great Reset is calling for.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: They will offer the solution of the end of globalization. You'll hear that. This is the end of globalization. We've got to do things. We've got to do things closer to home. And so it will appear to be the end of globalization. But it will not be the end of globalization.

It will be what you interpret as more global controls. But we'll make stuff closer to home. And not with China or Russia.

Uh-huh. Really? Because we're currently doing a deal with Iran. Just saying.

STU: It's going to work out well.

GLENN: This is the nightmare that's coming.

This Doctor Warned About Fauci 20 Years Ago. Will We Listen Before It’s Too Late?

Dr. Richard Ebright first warned about gain-of-function research and Dr. Fauci back in 2001. Recently, he sat down for a rare interview with Blaze Media Managing News Editor Leon Wolf to explain why we’re not out of the danger zone yet. Leon joins Glenn to break down some of the biggest warnings he gave: “Most biological attacks have not been carried out by terrorists. They were carried out by researchers with axes to grind.” So, why have our government and Fauci been so insistent about continuing gain-of-function research — and very sloppily at that? In his new article at TheBlaze.com, Leon argues that “gain-of-function” “might be fairly called a bioweapons research program.” And it didn’t end with COVID-19. Now, there’s rumors of a new bird flu spreading…

Kamala Meets With a Man in a Dress While Putin & Kim Jong Un Conspire?!

Russia's Vladimir Putin, who's seemingly getting friendly with all of America's enemies, recently met with North Korea's Kim Jong Un. So, what is the White House doing in the meantime? Well, for starters, Vice President Kamala Harris invited the "fabulous" cast of "Queer Eye" to the White House to celebrate Pride Month. Then, there's Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre, who insists that we must get rid of Trump's tax cuts to fund their endless spending. And to top it all off, President Biden is insisting that the overwhelming majority of Americans want to give illegal immigrants amnesty when the exact opposite is true. Yep...everything's normal! Nothing to see here!

GLENN: Yesterday, I don't know if you saw the cover going around of New York magazine.

Do we have it here?

It is the New York magazine cover. Mocking MAGA women.

And what does that headline say, Pat?

I can't read it from here. Are Republican women okay?

I think it was.

And it's this whole story about Republican women.

And, you know, questioning them. New York magazine.

Don't lecture us on women.

Don't. I mean, you know what your idea of a woman is?

Could we please play the cut from the White House?

Cut 28, please.

VOICE: Some questions. Go ahead. I'm ready.

VOICE: JBN. Is it true, that's your natural hair?

VOICE: Yes. I can confirm this is not a wig.

VOICE: Final question, do you use your own hair products?

GLENN: So stop.

So this is the Queer Eye for the straight guy, thing. And, you know, fine. But he did a video with the vice president.

Here he is, standing behind the podium at the White House. And then he does the deal with the vice president.

Where he knocks on her door. And she opens it up. In the -- in the West Wing. And she's like, hello

And his like, surprise!

And they come in. He's wearing a dress and heels and everything else. Don't lecture me about women.

Don't. Don't.

You have no idea.

You -- your own Supreme Court justice said, you couldn't identify a woman!

So don't tell me how the -- the right, there's something wrong with the women, who are voting for MAGA.

You don't even.

You can't identify a woman. So shut the pie hole.

Okay. Now that I have that off my chest.

There's something else, that yesterday, the lies, that just keep continuing.

That we all know are lies.

And I -- I just am so anxious to see how this all works out, this -- this fall.

Because we're either going to recognize lies, and start standing for the truth, or not.

But here's Joe Biden yesterday, talking about mass amnesty.

VOICE: The actions I'm announcing today. Will go into effect later this summer.

And, by the way, just as it was true, the protection of dreamers. Steps not taken today. Are overwhelmingly supported by the American people.

No matter what the other team says.

PAT: No. No. No. They do not overwhelmingly support. Nope.

It is quite the opposite.

In fact, nearly six in ten voters. Including a third of Democrats. And nine out of ten endorse mass deportation of illegals.

Not making them citizens.

We want to send them home!

The American people overwhelmingly favor send them home!

Close the border.

Or at least secure it.

You know, let's -- let's please stop the flood across the border.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

It's absolutely unbelievable.

PAT: Yeah. The lies really are. Really are. Unbelievable.

GLENN: Yeah. Let me give you another lie. This one also coming from the White House, yesterday.

Here's KJP on the deficit.

VOICE: This president has a strong agenda, and to reduce the deficit. You hear them talk about this, very often. Instead of blowing it up, again, by extending the Trump tax cuts which would cost $5 trillion. $5 trillion.

PAT: No. They would not. While the last administration increased the debt by a record $8 trillion. And didn't sign a single law to reduce the deficit.

And what we have done, what this president has done, he's signed legislation to reduce the deficit by $1 trillion since the office.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Stop! Stop!

PAT: It's hard to take, isn't it?

GLENN: We just got the CBO today, or yesterday afternoon. They came out and said, we're adding another $400 billion to the already out of control one and a half billion.

Trillion dollar deficit. This year!

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Which will bring it up to 1.9 trillion dollars, in deficit, this year.

And they said, if Joe Biden goes through, with the rest of his student loan thing, it will be a cool $2 trillion. So don't talk to me about how you've reduced the deficit.

How are you reducing the deficit. When it's growing?

I don't even.

I mean, I --

PAT: The lies. Again, it's just -- they just stand there. And bald-faced lie to us, every day.

Every day.


GLENN: And -- and then, we sit here, and we -- we listen to them, lie to us, about how Ukraine is ready to win the war.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: No, they're not.

PAT: Yeah, no.

It's --

GLENN: I mean --

PAT: And I love how -- the -- at a the tax cut is costing us.

It's costing I say 5 trillion.

Yeah. If our -- all of our money belongs to you, to begin with.

It costs 5 trillion.

That's not your money to begin with.

So it does want cost you anything.

It's just money you won't want to receive.

Get it from somewhere else.

GLENN: So what do you do?

When you lose money. When you have lost money. Because the employer says, yeah. I've got to cut your salary. What do you do?

PAT: Stop spending as much.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: Don't spend.

GLENN: You cut back. Or you say, I'm getting another job!

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Congress and White House. They are all welcomed to get another job.

Please do.

Go out into the private world. And do something.

But they're not losing money. They stop taking it. From the individual.

Meanwhile, while all this is going on. Putin, just landed in North Korea.

Cut 16.
(music)
There's Putin's airplane. And there's Kim Jong-un.

Meeting him. On the tarmac. In North Korea.

Now, North Korea, just violated the north and South Korean border. With soldiers.

Just this weekend.

Nobody talked about it.

They are also upping all of their missile technology. And their nuclear technology.

Putin is over, making friends, with Iran, China, North Korea.

All of the known enemies of the United States.

Now, North Korea is proud that they can launch missiles. What happens, when they launch missiles, if they launch missiles, to the United States?

What would happen? We know that if Putin wanted to get into a nuclear fight, or -- God forbid, at this point, you know, Biden wanted to get into a nuclear fight. They would all start fighting together. Right?

But they might use a proxy like North Korea, to launch the first strike.

So they don't look like the bad guys.

But if we respond, I guess, we could use Triton nuclear tipped missiles from submarines, if we're around.

But if they're launching missiles at us. We launch missiles.

And the fastest way to North Korea, from North Dakota, is over the polar cap. And then through or over either China or Russia! What do you think that would start?

I mean, we are dealing with -- we're just dealing with madmen.

Absolute madness!


PAT: Really dangerous time. Really bad.

And we've got occasion we've got a cadaver in chief. Who is incapable of dealing with any of it.

That's the good thing.

GLENN: I know.

PAT: And we played the sentence he tried to utter yesterday.

Just, you get --

GLENN: It's terrifying. To ever.

PAT: You can't even understand what the guy is saying.

GLENN: Can you play it again, please? Play it again.

Cut ten.

PAT: Joe Biden, cut ten.

From --

BIDEN: All the members of Congress. And homeless security secretary.


PAT: I mean, that is madness.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. That is -- and he just -- when the look on his face, it's terrifying.

PAT: Yeah. It is.

GLENN: It is terrifying.

And this is who we have running things.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Meanwhile, as we are racking up another 400 billion dollars. Half a trillion dollars, in deficit, spending like it's out of control.

Yesterday, we found out that more and more businesses, in fact, 25 percent more businesses already this year, compared to all of last year.

25 percent more businesses have gone out of business, already, this year.

And they're -- they're claiming, it is inflation.

And the high cost of things. Which is absolutely true.

Our consumer spending was only up .1 percent.

Because people can't spend anything. Because the government is taking it all.

Spending it themselves. And running up inflation. And at the same time, what does the guy in -- in the mayor in Chicago, want to do?

Just play a little clip. I think it's cut 22.

The Chicago mayor Brandon Johnson.

VOICE: Chicago still bears the scars of systemic racism and injustices that have been inflicted in our communities. We have seen them in highways that cut through black neighborhoods.

And the industries that, of course, flock to these neighborhoods, often contributing to increased pollution and poor health outcomes. We see it in the trauma.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Stop. So what is he heading for?

What is he driving at for this?

He wants a committee, to study reparations.

And how many -- how much we can pay in reparations.

They don't have any money in Chicago!

Where are they going to get that money?

And, by the way, speaking of this. This came out last week. And it drives me nuts. We should -- we should get Elizabeth in.

Elizabeth, our makeup artist. Can you come into the studio for a second?

Because the mayor, they just went through his -- you know, his budget from last year.

He spent for him.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: He spent 30,000 dollars, on makeup, last year.

PAT: Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Hair and makeup. Look at how fabulous his hair was.

I mean, it was -- it was --

GLENN: $30,000.

I don't think -- I'm on television, every day. And they have to do makeup.

I don't -- I want to know how much makeup, you have to put on, to spend 30,000 dollars in a year. How is that possible.

PAT: He made 30 trips to the business.

So that's a thousand dollars per trip.

A thousand dollars for makeup and hair.

Each trip. To that business.

And he thinks it's fine. It's fine. For him to be.

So did Lori Lightfoot, you remember.

During the pandemic, the previous hair.

GLENN: Lori Lightfoot. That's probably 100,000 dollar job.

Are Scientists Harvesting Human Embryos to Power Supercomputers?!
RADIO

Are Scientists Harvesting Human Embryos to Power Supercomputers?!

In a story straight out of The Matrix or Terminator, environmentalist scientists are harvesting human stem cells to build "batteries" for A.I. supercomputers. But what makes this even more terrifying is how it works: The most sought-after source of the stem cells for these "organoids" is embryos, and they only last about 100 days until they die. So, are we harvesting God's creation to power man's "creation?" Blaze Media editor-at-large James Poulos joins Glenn to explain the whole story ...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: He is TheBlaze media editor at-large.

And TheBlaze TV host of Zero Hour. He's also the founder and editorial director of Return, which is a new vertical on TheBlaze.com.

We have several different things that we're working on. And one of them is return, just like on your keyboard, when you hit return.

It's all about tech.

He wrote a story that is one of the more disturbing, dystopian stories. And we've done our homework on this, to some degree.

Enough to go, oh, no. This is actually in practice, and being used by the University of Michigan, right now.

This is not some, you know, some day. And it's a little like the Matrix.

Environmentalists are worried about, how do we make enough power to be able to power AI?

Well, they have found a way. Called organoids.

Wait until you hear this.

James is with us now. Hello, James.

JAMES: Hey, Glenn. How are you?

GLENN: Well, I was better before I read your story on organoids. Yeah, I know.

This is bizarre and terrifying.

JAMES: Yeah. It's really disturbing. And it's been around for a little while. But it's really starting to kick into gear.

As you said, you know, AI consumes a ton of electricity. A lot of energy. You know, environmentalists have always hated nuclear power for pretty perverse reasons, I think.

So they're so afraid of using nuclear power, that what would invoke now is turning to us.

To be the batteries. Just take the stem cells out of embryos. Out of the labs. Sometimes out of tumors.

Turn them into brain cells, basically.

And use those as batteries, to power what they're calling bio processors. They say, it will use about a million times less power than a typical digital processor. And that's a good thing, they say.

You can access them remotely. And this is the new hype. You know, it's from the same folks who brought you the idea of going to carbon zero. Net zero carbon use. They look at human beings as a waste of space. A waste of energy.

And they want to harness that, to run AI that is supposed to be smarter than anyone can understand.

GLENN: So on final sparks website, this is the company that is doing this.

This linked to a daily mail article, that says organoids are tiny, self-organized, three-dimensional tissue cultures made from stem cells.

Stanford's website says stem cells come from two sources. Embryonic stem cells.

And then, you know, that's unused embryos, and they are then donated to science, or adult stem cells.

But those are really limited, and can only generate certain type of cells.

So they also say, final sparks website say, these organoids live for about 100 days.

So are we harvesting embryos? Using them to power a supercomputer for 100 days?

And then killing them, and looking for more embryo stem cells?

JAMES: Well, right.

So if you are uncomfortable as IFD, this is going to drive you nuts. There's an extra category of extra stem cells they've created called induced pluripotent cells. And basically, what you do, you start the embryonic process.

But you arrest it before it gets too far.

And then you harvest the stem cells out of this artificially induced embryonic organism, right? Human organism, and then you create a fork, and you just grow those cells.

You know, sort of the way in the way they grow fake meat cells. You know, it's really akin to cancerous cells, and the way that they grow.

Right. So this is something that is not one and done.

It's not like, well, maybe once upon a time, there was an embryo who had to die for the greater good.

No. This is a perpetual motion machine.

You have to keep harvesting.

GLENN: Yeah, every 100 days.

This is not a hypothetical, by the way.

Final Spark says, the University of Michigan already using this neuroplatform.

And this is -- this is because there's not enough energy, and these -- these organoids, use so much less energy, that if we just harvest these embryos, we can then -- AI can go on and live forever.

And we don't have energy problems.

Good Lord. That's terrifying!

JAMES: Yeah. At a certain point, if we were created in the image of God. How far can you stray from that, before something horrible happens?

None of this is a surprise. Nikola Tesla infamously said, you will live to see manmade horrors beyond your comprehension, and we're getting pretty close.

GLENN: Yeah.

You have -- you now have scientists who don't -- don't necessarily believe in God.

Think that they are creating a God. In AI.

Now, harvesting God's creation to power their new God.

Good Lord, help us.

JAMES: Yeah. Ask if you cross that Rubicon, where you say, we're going to turn these brain cells into cyborgs. Into Frankenstein cells. Then it's not very long before you say, well, gosh.

Why don't we just turn the whole human race into this kind of cyborg entity. You know.

The terminator, at least the machines are stomping around, looking to wipe us out.

These machines look at us more as the solution than the problem. They just suck all our energy out of us.

GLENN: You know, I was reading a book about energy. And how all of this is going.

And it will. I mean, if it's an entity. That needs food. Needs energy.

To live. Just like us. You're trapped in the mountains.

You know, in -- in a snowstorm. And there's 20 of you. And you start dying.

You're going to start eating each other.

You have to survive. And that is what happens.

The same thing, it will eat whatever will give it the energy.

I would rather not train it to eat people. Or anything with -- to do with people.


JAMES: Well, especially when you have nuclear power there.

And to their credit, there are some tech guys out there who are working on advanced forms of nuclear power, clean energy coming out of things that you can do.

Splitting up atoms.

Yeah. There are Rhode Island risks there. But, gosh, if we are going to go down this road to any degree, where we will need significantly more energy, in order to -- you know, whether it's stay ahead of China, or whatever excuse you want to come up with.

Or for just the sake of -- of more human flourishing. Imagine that. Gosh, you have to -- you have to take a look at nuclear, before you start looking at the guy sitting next to you, as your source of energy.

GLENN: I saw a story yesterday, about here in Idaho. That they're shutting down the water on -- because of environmental reasons.

They're shutting down the water for I don't even remember. Half a million acres. Or more. Of farmland here.

They're just going to shut the water off. So all these farmers will lose their farmland. Coincidentally what is also happening, and exactly the same time, is they are opening up cobalt mines in Idaho. And these cobalt mines need tons of water to keep the drills cool and everything else.

And those are for batteries. So it appears, as if the state of Idaho, shafted the farmers. And said, forget about the food.

Transfer the water, to the cobalt mines. So we can have batteries.

That's more important.

And nobody has tied these two together yet.

It -- we're in trouble. We've misplaced our values.

JAMES: It's a big problem. And you know what else is crazy about Idaho, Glenn?

Right now, there's bitcoin mining going on in Idaho. A lot of people started to understand how Bitcoin works.

They're skeptical. But this is something that is still a first rate technology, that ordinary Americans can use, starting right now.

Takes maybe a minute or two to learn how to do it. But you can do it. When the Bitcoin miners take the energy that they need, in order to do what they do.

Legislators get upset. Oh, I don't know. This is using a lot of energy. So they're looking at curbing, the ability of the miners to lose electricity.

Or even charging them more for their electric lease. Meanwhile, when Facebook comes to town in Idaho and they say, hey, we're building a gigantic data center.

It's going to consume tons and tons of energy. The legislators say, well, if you're creating jobs, we will actually give you a tax cut.

This is how messed up our priorities are right now.

GLENN: Wow. I don't know if you saw The Godfather of AI.

But Jeffrey Hinton, he's the guy who left Google, if I remember right.

And he left -- he left Google, because he said, they were going into some unethical things. Is it was becoming a real danger. Do you remember this story?

JAMES: Yeah. That's right.

GLENN: Yeah. And he said he had real fear, at Google. That the -- that AI would fall into the hands of bad actors.

He just did an interview, where he -- he said that he was asked the question here.

If he was in favor of a super intelligent AI destroying humanity, and replacing it with something objectively better in terms of consciousness. He said, I'm actually for it.

But I think I would be wiser for me to say. That I'm against it.

He was then pressed on, and asked him, can you elaborate. And he said, well, people don't like being replaced. Well, yeah. No.

I'm good. He said, it's not -- it's -- it's not clear, that we're the best form of intelligence, that there is.

Obviously, from a person's perspective. Everything relates to people. But it may be that there comes a point, when we see things like humanist, as a racist term.

We're dealing with people, who are very, very smart and very, very clever.

But many of these people are anti-human. And they hide behind the environmentalist thing. To -- to get away with it.

JAMES: It's really diabolical. If you're looking for an intelligence that's higher than human intelligence. That actually doesn't want to kill us, but in fact loves us with a love beyond human comprehension. It's right there, in the form of God the creator.

And if you reject the existence of God, then it's just really looking like, these days only a matter of time, before you reject the existence of human beings too. I know it's not everyone.

I know there's some -- some atheists out there, that think human beings are still good. But it's looking like they're outnumbered.

And they're losing the battle for the soul of the atheist if you will -- these guys, they have really just -- they do hate humanity.

And they think that intelligence is more important than -- than love.

They think the brain is more important than the heart. And, you know, it all sounds interesting, when it's at the level of theory. But when you ask them to develop it out of practice. It doesn't mean replacing humans. It means wiping them out.

GLENN: So which -- which movie do I think is more likely?

I mean, I never thought the Matrix. But the Matrix, you know, batteries. Human batteries. And it creating a utopia. In people's minds.

Or do you see us.

I mean, remember, the beginning of Skynet. And the terminator.

The first line, I think in that movie, is the machines rose from the ashes in the nuclear fire.

And it was AI that had been used by the Pentagon, and the world's war machines.

And then we blew ourselves up.

And AI decided, we were the problem. And started to wipe us out.

Here we are, talking about the absolute unthinkable. World War III.

Which would end in nuclear war.

And wipe almost all life off the planet.

And we're giving the keys to much of our work.

We just had Jack Carr on yesterday.

Where he was talking about -- you know, he said, nobody would tell me exactly.

But if I talk to enough people. They're putting it all together. And they can look at it.

Oh, we're turning the keys over. To our -- of our killing machines.

Over to AI soon.

That -- that is not -- that can't be a good thing. Which -- which movie are we -- are we going towards? It's kind of like, you know, Brave New World. Or 1984.

I think we're 1984.

Are we headed more towards the terminator, or the Matrix?

VOICE: Well, you know, we have lots of sci-fi movies to choose from. I would point toward. We have sci-fi horror films that we can look to. We got movies like Event Horizon.

We have series like Hell Raiser.

Where the bad guys are inter-dimensional demons, who get summoned by human beings and lead them into hell.

We have David Cronenberg.

He has other films, that really show you, that there is that side of technology they can't be makes you sort of -- fills you with child like wonder.

And all these promises of flourishing beyond imagination.

There is a dark side too.

If we pretend the dark side is not there.

That's usually the way we get led astray in the worst possible way.

GLENN: So is there anything that can be done, going back to the first topic of using stem cells from embryos for human brains. Into these organoids.

Is there anything we should be looking towards. Or pushing for?

Or what?

GLENN: Well, I think, number one, we have to ask ourselves serious questions about how enslaved we are going to be, if we are always looking to China.

If we look at China. And say, they're taking over.

We can't beat them, unless we join them.

Or we have to fight fire with fire. If we're constantly comparing ourselves with what China is doing. We will lose touch with who we really are, as Americans, and depending as how things shake out as human beings.

That's point one. I think point two.

Is, yeah. Okay. You want to innovate on energy.

Look to nuclear. This is not some bizarre technology. It's been around for a long time.

Some countries. That the French. The Japanese. They have Fukushima. They have tsunamis all the time. Not a problem in the United States.

There are ways of doing points of energy, that don't involve turning human beings into these sort of Frankenstein cyborgs and using them for energy.

GLENN: James, thank you so much. I appreciate it.

White House Says Embarrassing Videos of Biden are FAKE?!
RADIO

White House Says Embarrassing Videos of Biden are FAKE?!

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre is very upset about all the "edited videos," "cheapfakes," and "deepfakes" going around of President Biden. These deceptive videos are making people think that President Biden is old and senile, instead of the mentally agile symbol of leadership that he is! And the mainstream media is helping her push this narrative! Well, Glenn and Pat discuss the truth: There are plenty of examples of Joe Biden looking old that are NOT taken out of context. As Glenn has warned, there will come a time when your eyes will deceive you. It may be because of AI deepfakes...or, it could be the fault of government propagandists.

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Okay. So Jean-Pierre said yesterday she's very upset about the unedited video. I'm sorry. The edited videos that -- the cheap fakes and the deepfakes that are going out.

And confusing Americans about how Joe Biden is handing things mentally. He's as strong as a horse. And probably as much awareness of what he is, as a horse, but that's a different story.

Here she is yesterday, from the White House. Cut two.

VOICE: There's a bunch of videos, that have been edited to make the president appear especially frail, or thinly confused.

I'm wondering if the White House is especially aware of the fact that it appears to be a pattern.

VOICE: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. Stop for a second. Listen to that question. Listen to that question.

That question is shaped, that the president is fine, there's no problem with the president.

But are you concerned that there's all of these videos coming out, that make him appear to be incapable of getting off a stage by himself.

Here's their answer.

VOICE: Appears to be a pattern.

VOICE: Yeah. And I think you all have called this. The cheap fakes video.

That's exactly what they are. They are cheap fakes video.

They are done in bad faith. And some of your news organization.

GLENN: She's reading, by the way.

VOICE: Have been very clear. Have stressed that these right-wing -- the white-wing (sic) critics of the president have a credibility problem. Because of the fact-checkers have repeatedly caught them pushing misinformation and disinformation. And so we see this. And this is something coming from your part of the world. Calling them cheap fakes and misinformation.

And I'll quote the Washington Post, what they wrote. They wrote about this.

And they said, how Republicans used misleading videos to attack Biden in a 24-hour period. I think that it tells you everything that we need to know, about how -- how desperate, how desperate Republicans are here.

We're seeing these fakes. These manipulated videos. And it is, again, done in bad faith.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Deep fakes. Deep fakes.

PAT: You know, all I could think of during her spiel here, is you saying, there will come a time when your eyes will deceive you. And this is that time.

They're telling us, we can't believe our very eyes right now. That these aren't real. That they've been edited or manipulated in some way. No!

I mean, taking something out of context means that you've changed what is actually about. Like you're lying about what they're saying. You're lying about what happened.

GLENN: Well, they're saying that this take, that you don't understand. That there was another parachuter, off behind Joe Biden.

We saw that. They showed that.

PAT: We talked about that.

GLENN: Correct.

PAT: And he did warned off. And he did say something to the guy.

He did.

GLENN: Right. Right. But still...

Everyone else was looking the other way.

PAT: Yes. Right.

GLENN: And it was so uncomfortable for the people there. You saw Macron look at him, like, oh, jeez.

Here he goes, and then Maloney saw it. And she walked across all of the world leaders to grab him and turn him around.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So, I mean, were they part of this -- this Deepfake? Were they part of it, saying, we were trying to make him look really old and decrepit? And not carry on a single thought at a time.

No. No.

There's no fake there. That -- he might have had his own intention of, you know -- I need my pudding.

And maybe that soldier is bringing that to me.

I don't know what his intention was. But everybody there. Viewed it the same way, the rest of the country did.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: It's incredible.

From the people who brought us the video of George Bush, trying to open that door and not be able to do it.
