In 2021, California lost over 330 THOUSAND residents…and with those residents, the Golden State lost over 29 billion dollars in income too. The numbers are not much better for New York, Massachusetts, or New Jersey, either. But it wasn’t just blue states experiencing massive changes. In this clip, Glenn unveils the SHOCKING statistics that prove Americans are sick & tired of far-left states, and they’re looking for other places to live that are much more favorable to freedom…

GLENN: All right. Let me talk to you a little bit about what's happening. Stu, you have an analytical mind. I don't. I don't think like you.
You think numbers. See if you can figure this out. The IRS migration data, released last week, shows that California lost more residents than any other state.
Net loss of nearly 332,000 people, and more than 29 billion dollars, in income.
GLENN: Okay? The state with the second largest population loss, is New York, which saw a loss of 262,000 residents and $24.5 billion in income.
GLENN: What time will the train pull into the station?
Gee, I can't figure this out.
Illinois is the other, with the loss of 105,000 people and 10.8 billion.
STU: Hmm. And what's the time period? Does it give you the time period on this? 2019 for COVID type of number?
GLENN: No. I think it's -- no. It -- 2021.
GLENN: Yeah. 2021.
STU: Okay. That sounds like a -- certainly, people reacting to the restrictions is a good -- I would guess a good chunk of that.
GLENN: Yeah. Sure. Sure.
STU: Massachusetts, for example, had a net loss of 44,000 people. $4.3 billion in income. Louisiana lost 28,500. And $861 million in income.
GLENN: New Jersey, which lost fewer people. 26,000, lost a total of $4.87.
No. $3.8 billion less in income.
So it seems as though, the high tax in your face states.
GLENN: Are not appealing to those people who have the ability to get away from them.
STU: Yeah. And I would add on to that, the states that decided to control every aspect of your life, during the pandemic as well.
Right? So if you, let's say, for example, try to shut down businesses. Control people's movement.
Force them to wear masks, and take medication. They may or may not want to have taken.
And also, try to make them pay exorbitant prices for that privilege. Maybe those people aren't going to stay anymore. It's a crazy idea.
GLENN: Now, here's another crazy idea.
In California, I mean, they're mixing up some powerful medicine. You know, to help their state.
Californians, the state democratic law makers have introduced a bill, that would impose a wealth tax. Okay?
Now, listen to this. A wealth tax on the wealthiest residents. Including for several years after you move from the state.
STU: I'm sorry. Now. You're getting a wealth tax, they pay to California. Even though, you don't live in California.
GLENN: Even though, you don't live in California. If you lived in California, moved away, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter.
They will still tax you for several years. I don't know legally, how could they can do that.
STU: I don't think they could. And also, wealth tax is completely unconstitutional federally. Whether they could get away with it at a state level, I'm not sure.
But you're not allowed to do that federally. Which is, of course, something that Elizabeth Warren, still, you know, over and over and over again, props up there, as some possibility to solve all of our problems.
GLENN: Yeah. Now, here is the big winner. The big winner, of course, say it with me. North Dakota.
Florida, 255,834 residents. 39.19 billion dollars coming into the state.
Texas, number two, 174,866 with 10.9 billion dollars. North Carolina, 76,000, and almost 5 billion dollars. South Carolina, just over 4 billion.
The same with Tennessee, 4.5 billion.
STU: It's legitimately incredible. It was all blue states except one. That people are moving out of. And all red states, that they were moving into.
But what could be the pattern here?
I don't know. What could it be? And, by the way, I think Louisiana was the one state that people were moving out of. It was also one of the hardest hit states, because of COVID.
I mean, that was really did have a rough.
GLENN: Louisiana always has a rough go of it.
STU: Especially places like New Orleans. Which you wouldn't necessarily associate with red state policies.
You know, that's really where they get hammered by that.
GLENN: Any place where you have to say. And this goes for parts of Florida. Any place that you have to say, kids, don't reach into the bushes. Is a problem.
I mean, where is Johnnie. I don't know. I just saw him reaching into the bush.
GLENN: Giant mouth opened up and ate him. Yeah, I think that's a problem.
STU: It could happen at any time.
GLENN: Yeah, I associate that more with Louisiana. Maybe unfairly.
STU: Well, it's on the Louisiana state flag. There's a child being eaten by something in the bush. They don't realize that. It's not necessarily the best commercial for the --
GLENN: Right. I don't know if I would have that on my state flag.
STU: This happens all the time. Let's show people what's going on.
GLENN: Yeah, so there's something else here. Jeffrey Epstein. His little black book.
Now, may I ask, if this wasn't about the world's most powerful people, it was about you and me.
Going to see, you know, teenage slaves, for sex.
STU: To be frowned upon, I just.
GLENN: It would be frowned upon. And I just we all would be exposed.
Don't you think? And the press would lead the way.
STU: I mean, this they -- they came after the guy who did Subway commercials. Right? You know, they -- if it was a conservative, of any prominence, they would make sure, you knew about it.
GLENN: Yeah. Right.
So Jeffrey Epstein met with the Obama White House council, the Rothschilds.
I do not know of all of them, but probably the spooky.
STU: The Koch Brothers. You can't meet with all of them. There's always both of them.
GLENN: There's only two?
STU: Only one now. The other one died.
GLENN: That's what they want you to believe.
GLENN: He died. Uh-huh. Anyway, and then our --
STU: Just like Jeffrey Epstein.
GLENN: And then our CIA director. Now, let me just -- I want to take you down just for a second. Okay. I know you had a restful week. I know you were like, hey, I'm good.
And I didn't even watch Chuck Todd. And I would say to you, no one watches Chuck Todd.
I think we're getting to the place, to where we can just get a transcript from a bot. And even the bot is saying, why do I have to watch Chuck Todd?
I mean, I'm not human, but is this cruel. Anyway, Chuck Todd, he had Vivek Ramaswamy on.
And Chuck was saying. Well, you know, the FBI. You want to abolish the FBI.
And you want to replace it with a new FBI.
Well, I don't know about replacing it with a new FBI. But, yeah, abolishing the FBI.
Who does this not sound good to at this point?
STU: The left used to always love it. Always love it. They were the ones pitching it all the time.
GLENN: Right. So he goes on, and says, the problem is, there's people in there, working there for decades.
So what I say, if the US president and I can't work for the federal government for more than eight years, which I think is a good thing, then none of the bureaucrats reporting to the president should either.
Okay. Well, that was crazy. That went over his head.
All right. Let me talk you back to Epstein for just a second.
Because I think it illustrates his point really well. We'll do that in 60 seconds. Sometimes, the value of a product or service relies heavily on the values of the company, that is producing that product or service.
And your mobile carrier is no exception to this rule. Aren't you tired of having to pay through the nose, for phone service. All the while that your money could be, and in some cases, definitely is, going to leftist causes that you don't support at all?
Every time you support, for instance, Verizon mobile, they're taking some of your money, and it is going to Planned Parenthood.
What are we doing? America's only Christian conservative wireless provider. Offers dependable, nationwide coverage on all three major networks. So you can get the best possible service in your area, but aren't simultaneously helping fund woke propaganda, by spending your money with those big mobile companies. When you switch to Patriot Mobile, you choose to support free speech. And religious freedom and sanctity of life. First responders are veterans. Their 100 percent US-based customer service team will make switching incredibly fast and easy.
Do yourself -- do our country a favor. Make the switch today.

Okay. So in the calendar. In the little black book of Jeffrey Epstein, it was made available last week. A new player in the saga was revealed. And it was the CIA director William Burns.
Now, Burns, his last job in government, before taking the helm of the CIA was Deputy Secretary of State from 2011, 2014.
He worked for Hillary Clinton. Now, the CIA spokesperson was asked, hey, what's the deal with him and Epstein's little black book?
And this is what the CIA spokesperson said, well, I'll tell you, but I'd have to kill you.
No, they said, Mr. Burns met with Epstein, about a decade ago.
Listen to that. He met with him, but it was a decade ago. Well, if they were talking about young girls and having sex, I don't care how long ago it was.
But he met with him, about a decade ago, as he was preparing to leave government service.
The director did not know anything about him. Other than, that he was introduced as an expert in the financial services secretary, or sector. And offered general advice to the transition, to the private sector.
So apparently, Epstein was a trusted career counselor.
Huh! In reality, Burns met with Epstein, at least once in Washington, DC, shortly before he left the State Department. And then two other times, in New York City, at his penthouse, where Bill Gates would hang out.
All of this reported to the Wall Street Journal.
Now, does anyone have a hard time believing the framing here. That somebody like Burns at his level took a random meeting, and didn't really know anything about him?
And then took two other random meetings with a guy at his house. Really?
Because that doesn't -- hmm.
One random meeting, maybe. But I will tell you, just to get on -- I'm not somebody that was, you know, the secretary of state level.
I'm just an alcoholic DJ, getting somebody on my schedule is really difficult.
Just having some random guy, who I'm going to meet. That doesn't happen very often in my schedule. Going three times? Randomly! To somebody I don't really know much about?
It never happens. It never happens. And I'm thinking, if you're going to be the head of the CIA, if you're doing that and the third time, you still don't know who this guy is, you shouldn't be the head of the CIA.
STU: Did they check backgrounds for these people at all?
GLENN: I know my team does.
STU: But I'm saying, when you're head of the CIA, does that -- does anyone know your background?
GLENN: Right. Right. Right. So now you fast forward. Joe Biden is looking for somebody to head the CIA.
We're about to enter a proxy war with Russia in Ukraine. Bill burns! He's the guy, we'll put him in. You know, the guy who didn't know who Jeffrey Epstein was, for three solid meetings.
Wow. I don't. Hmm.
This is what Vivek is talking about. This is -- these career guys. You have to get out. Get them out of there. It's just a nest of bad things.
STU: And at the point, where you think, there's just too much corruption to try to fix it, because you can have an organization that has corruption in it and fix it and come back around. But like, it just seems like there's too much here.
GLENN: No. It is. It is.
Have you tried unplugging it, and plugging it back in.
That's the only thing we haven't tried. We've tried everything else. Unplug it, and plug it back in.
Everything needs to be shut down and rebooted. Back to original factory settings.
That's the key. We've got all this bad programming, that has been piling up and is making the system run like it was never designed to. And it's all breaking down.
Restore back to original factory settings. But you -- I love the press. They think. Well, you -- you just want to get rid of all the police. And the FBI.
Well, if the entire thing is corrupt, and maybe there's some good guys out there. I think at the local level, there probably are good guys.
I think it's mainly in Washington. But, yeah. I think we'll start the hiring process all over again.
Because we have to. Why is that so insane?
STU: I don't think it is. I think some people get rid of the FBI or the CIA, and think, well, wait a minute.
They do a lot of work that is important. And while, yes. I know they're corrupt.
Going after, you know, high level criminals. Violent gangs. Terrorists. All these things.
Still need to be done. They just don't need to be done, with the exact organization, the exact same way.
GLENN: So the FBI used to be the aid for the state. But now they're not.
They used to be. The FBI would say, you know, there's interstate crime going on. And the states will be like, you can nail these guys please? Because it's out of my state, in another state. So the FBI would do that. But they would assist, the local -- the states. And when they would arrest somebody, it wasn't the FBI, that got Bonnie and Clyde in Texas. It was the Rangers. Okay. It was the Texas Rangers. If they were going to get somebody, they would advise. They might even be there. But it was the state that did that. Now, they can roll in any way they want.
They don't have to call the state. They don't have to -- no. We never had a national police force.
And that's how they're being used now. It can't happen. It can't happen.
And if it means, we have to be without, the FBI, for I don't know. How long does it take to reboot?
It's a scary couple of minutes, I guess. When it's rebooting. You're like, okay. Okay. Hurry up. Hurry up.
You know, but is it any different what Windows does to you probably once a month?
No. No. No. Now it probably has to reset.
STU: Yeah. I think like you have to have a plan, to make sure the operations of the country that are important, not investigating the president over -- like, not the stuff that they've been doing lately.
But, I mean, the things that are actually important. Need to be potentially used for other areas.
And people resigned. But it needs -- a whole reimagining of this needs to occur.
GLENN: I don't think a reimagining.
STU: You don't think that there's any valid work done by the CIA and the FBI.
Like that's crucial to the country's security.
GLENN: Oh, no. I do. I do.
I mean, I don't need to reimagine it. I need to clean the corruption out.
STU: Yeah. I just that -- I think the structure needs to be reimagined completely. I don't think the way it's structured now. You will get this problem again.
GLENN: It is. Because it has way too much power. It has way too much power, and no real oversight. That's the problem.
So it's not really, in my view, it wasn't a reimagining. It's more of, how does the Constitution say these things work?
STU: Right. Okay. That's a reimagining for right now.
GLENN: Okay. You're right. You're right.
