Glenn announces three "American Dream Lab" locations across the globe

All this week on TheBlaze TV, Glenn will be outlining his vision for 2013 and the role that The American Dream Labs will play this year and in the years to come. While Glenn has teased the American Dream Labs in the past, this week will mark the first time he takes viewers into the plans he has for the group and the projects that they are currently working on. On tonight’s episode, Glenn hinted at what was to come over the next few weeks and detailed some of the legendary American figures who are models for the type of innovation the American Dream Labs will be trying to replicate in the next few years.

“This is not just about the future of TheBlaze, not just the future of the entire TV industry. Believe it or not, revolutionizing how the news is delivered and how a network is run is the smallest of our many, many dreams. All this week I’m going to give you a glimpse into those dreams. I do that knowing that some will mock, others will dismiss. But that’s OK. Every era of change has those who are resistant to it and those who like the comfort of the status quo or those who wish to spend their free time or their creative time mocking. It’s time to stop worrying about what others are doing and wonder why are we here,” Glenn said as he opened the show.

“The scope of what I’m going to show you this week of what we want to accomplish in the American Dream Labs is enormous. Food, farming, energy, transportation, healthcare, news, technology, information, you name it. But we will not limit the range of our innovation, but it is going to take a massive effort,” Glenn said.

Glenn asked viewers to take a leap of faith with him on the journey of the American Dream Labs, and said that with the support of his audience the Dream Labs could change the fabric of information, technology, entertainment, and more.

Glenn explained that this week each show would focus on a different area of innovation that the American Dream Labs will address. On Tuesday, Glenn will focus on global news and information as well as “research and development”. Wednesday, Glenn will bring people into the Labs working on farming, energy, and advertising. On Thursday? Glenn’s only hints were “Galt’s Gulch” and the “Man in the Moon”. Friday be a Q&A show with Glenn and the audience.

Glenn also revealed three American Dream Labs are already set up in three locations across the globe. In Dallas, TX, Glenn directs work on “energy, innovation, and high tech”. Glenn announced that an entertainment, history, and farming Dream Lab has just been built in Salt Lake City, Utah. He also revealed that he has partnered with a group in New Zealand that are working on a “Tesla Project”. According to Glenn, few people on his own staff were aware of the Dream Labs in Utah and New Zealand.

But on tonight’s show, Glenn focused on two legendary American icons who have laid the ground work for innovation, imagination, and vision that have inspired the American Dream Labs: Thomas Edison and Walt Disney.

“I want to show you where I’m coming from so you can see the big picture,” Glenn explained.

Glenn went into the history of Thomas Edison, explaining how Edison made bold claims about cheap lighting from incandescent light bulbs that would make gas lamps obsolete. He was attacked by the press and by his critics, but in the end he was successful because he and his team worked hard and experimented with every resource available to create a practical, working light bulb. He made fulfilled his promises, despite the criticisms.

Glenn modeled his initial design of his Texas studio off of Edison’s laboratory in Menlo Park, NJ, but opted to focus on actual innovation rather than showcasing existing inventions.

Glenn also focused on Walt Disney, who also had his own private company dedicated to innovation – WED Enterprises, which developed over a hundred patents and changed not only movies and television, but also amusement parks. Walt’s biggest dream, possibly best captured in his original plan for EPCOT, was to change the way people lived and worked in towns across America. He wasn’t just focused on the Park or the studios; he was focused on improving people’s lives.

This past summer, Glenn won at auction Walt Disney’s Disneyland Prospectus, a document that outlined Walt’s original vision for the theme park. Walt had hoped the document would help get him the investors he needed to build Disneyland, and when he had little success he left it on an office desk. Glenn bought it at auction because it represented not only a grand vision, but a vision that was always changing and improving through imagination and innovation. Glenn promised this document would play an important role in the days ahead as he rolled out his announcements and plans for the American Dream Labs.

Glenn explained that Walt Disney spent his time on smaller projects like “The Dancing Man” and miniature trains and towns. At the time, he had no idea why his mind was occupied with such things, but these ideas led to the animatronics and designs found in Disneyland today. Glenn said that much like Walt, some of the small things he is working on will in some fashion influence bigger plans down the road.

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
