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.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.
