See the amazing new technology Glenn bought for the American Dream Labs

Last night on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn unveiled a variety of projects and items that are being worked on in the American Dream Labs. One of these items was invented in the Labs, but Glenn and his team are using it and believe it will change the way the world does business, the 3-D printer.

"This is the latest greatest technology," Glenn told listeners this morning. "This is the something that we just purchased for the Dream Labs Friday. And I wanted to get it in here quickly because I wanted to show it to this week."

Glenn explained that, while this 3-D printer is small in size, they make them much MUCH bigger. 3-D printers are so amazing because you can replicate just about anything into a carbon fiber 3-dimensional replica. Today's test object was a plastic shark.

While 3-D printing technology will be absolutely revolutionary as it becomes more accessible, it will also have a huge impact on the economy, manufacturing in-particular.

"You can make anything. The real scary thing about this is what this will do to patents. What this does to art. I wonder, and I haven't been willing to google it, but  I wonder what it means for currency," Glenn explained. 

Already there are websites that give you the dimensions of common, every day items that you can feed in for the printer to create. Because of this ability to create something completely out of nothing or recreate just about anything, Glenn explained that all of the information on gun is being removed from these sites.

Beyond that, there apps that you can download directly to your iPhone (123D Catch). This app allows you to simply take photos of the items you want to re-create, and that information gives the 3-D printer everything it needs.

To put this into perspective on the effect this could have on industry, Glenn explained that when he had an artist create an exact replica of the bust of Winston Churchill for the Oval on set. But, since Glenn already had photos of the bust, he could have used the 3-D printer to re-create the bust.

"The only time I've seen technology like this cause a stir in a building is the first time i saw a big huge black box when I was working in Seattle — it was 1982 — and it had no markings on it. All it said was Philips. And they brought it in to test it. They only had one thing they could test it on, and I went in and I watched them do the test. I was absolutely amazed. It was called a compact disc player," Glenn said.

If you consider how far past a CD player we are now in the music world, considering where a 3-D printer could taking all kinds of industry is mind-blowing.

"Here's the thing," Glenn started. "How does this affect? Jobs will come back to America, because you'll be able to make things again. Because — remember this is early technology here — as this gets better and better and cheaper and cheaper you'll be able to make everything in America. However, those aren't manufacturing jobs.  Those aren't labor union job. Those aren't dolt jobs, per se. You will be able to make anything you want.  So our economy in the entire world is turned upside down. You don't need slave children in China stuff. The replicator 2000 will do it for it you.  It's than amazing advance."

Many industries that work with new technology and product development are already implementing 3-D printing in pretty amazing ways. Among these is the aerospace and automotive industries, which are saving upwards of tens of thousands of dollars using these machines to replicate parts, models, and bring the innovations they've designed in a computer to life.

However, as with many innovations that put the power back into our own hands, there is a responsibility and a danger attached. How will this effect patents? How will this keep individuals from counterfeiting products? Like Glenn said on radio this morning, this has the possibility of turning into Napster.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.

A big question Glenn Beck has always had about “The Amazing Do-Over” is: How do you get the most powerful and wealthy nation that has ever existed to accept, “You will own nothing … and be happy”? A foundational principle of this country from its very inception has been land ownership. We worked hard, were fiscally responsible, and stayed away from high debt, but the progressive era began to erode all of that.

The Clinton Global Initiative recently gathered the ruling class to tell the plebes how to run their finances and called anyone who dared challenge their ideas “climate change deniers.” Glenn argues we are dangerously far down the “Road to Serfdom” and exposes the progressive playbook to keep us in line. It’s a 600-year-old medieval model that’s been the plan all along.

We’re already feeling economic pain, and yet they’re playing “Game of Thrones” with our lives. Turning us into serfs is their ultimate goal. How do they finish the complete restructuring of the American financial system and our way of life?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn connects it all on the chalkboard and details the solution to fighting back against the ruling elites.
