TheBlaze Radio's Jay Severin contrasts the Republican Party’s handling of Obamacare today to its handling of slavery

On radio this morning, Glenn shared some exciting news about TheBlaze Radio Network. TheBlaze Radio currently offers a simulcast of Glenn’s radio and TV show in addition to a full slate of original programming, including Pat & Stu, The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson, The Buck Sexton Show, and much more. Earlier this week, TheBlaze Radio expanded to include TheBlaze Radio Philadelphia – a radio network that reflects your values, while offering exclusive Philadelphia news, traffic, and weather.

Jay Severin is the Marconi Award nominated host of the Jay Severin Show, weekdays from 2-5pm ET only on TheBlaze Radio Network, called into Glenn’s show this morning to talk about a fascinating theory he has about the Republican Party’s handling of Obamacare.

“I want to bring Jay Severin in because on The Blaze Radio he brought up something that was such a great observation,” Glenn said. “And he compared the way we're handling this healthcare thing to slavery. He said what are we doing? We're arguing the wrong argument.”

In Jay’s opinion, the Republicans in Congress have taken the wrong position when it comes to criticizing Obamacare. During the hearings on Capitol Hill this week, Republicans primarily focused on the problems with when, in reality, they should be talking about the big picture, long-term effects of the law.

“I started to look at this and said we know the basics: Obamacare is evil. It enslaves. It's anti-constitutional. The government forces us to buy and do things we don't want. It is going to end up murdering people, so we know all these things,” Jay explained. “I'm saying okay, here we go. Here's the supposed opposition party, the party of Lincoln, no less, with the issue all teed up. We have a Congressional Hearings. We've got the power of subpoena. We've got Secretary Sebelius. We’ve got a national TV audience. Here's our chance for the opposition to tell America what's wrong with Obamacare, but what I listened to for days was people saying, ‘Hey, hey your website ain't working. Haha.'”

“Imagine that at any time in history we are given – and I hope to God we are given – a do-over on the mistakes we've made. I choose human slavery. It could be Native Americans,” he continued. “But imagine we had this hypothetical hearing and on the stand, under oath, we have the chief administrative officer in charge of initiating slavery and the very best objection we could conjure is: ‘Hey, your sign-up process isn't working properly. You really screwed that up. This proves it's time to delay and fix it.’ Fix it? Fix what?”

The way Jay sees it, do we believe Abraham Lincoln would have said something along the lines of ‘Hey, your slavery arrests are way behind schedule,’ or would he and his fellow abolitionists have taken the opportunity to mount an argument about why slavery as an institution is wrong, immoral, and unconstitutional?

“It's not in the inefficiencies of how you are rounding people up, but rather in the immorality of enslaving them. A more effective means of signing them up is, and can never be, a rational or a moral measure of the success,” Jay said. “And in doing this, the Republicans missed such an important teaching moment… The Republicans politically got jujutsu by progressives into the oldest misdirection trick since Houdini. They allowed themselves to be trapped such that now the argument for both sides isn't the virtues or vices of the system. It's only about is the web site working well."

In this fictitious situation, if the slavery website had suddenly began working properly, would slavery have suddenly been okay? No. And that is where Republicans have lost this fight against Obamacare. Instead of focusing on the problems with the law, they focused on the problems with the website, which, when the website is finally working properly, will be disastrous for their argument.

“When the Obamacare website works, and it will, what in the absence of any sound moral objection is left for the Republicans to say,” Jay asked. “I mean, they could have marched in there day before yesterday with a piece of paper saying the website works, and Sebelius could have said, ‘I have just been handed a piece of paper, the website's working. I'm going the leave now.’ What could the Republicans say? ‘Oh, the website is working. We have no other objections then. Okay, have a nice day.’”

It feels like lately hardly a week can go by without some new AI advancement—or warning—making headlines, but unless you have been paying VERY close attention you might believe the power of AI is something relegated to technical institutions or Silicon Valley labs and only accessible by the most highly trained computer wizards. But as Glenn has demonstrated, AI can now be accessed by anyone with internet access and can take many different shapes and forms—not just that of the ominous and awkward ChatBot. In fact, you are probably using AI without even realizing it.

If AI can enter into your life without you realizing it, would you even know if your CHILDREN were interacting with it?

We want to hear from YOU. Do you allow your children to use AI? Do you know if they are? Do you use AI? Are you aware of the many shapes and forms AI can take?

Do you use AI?

Do you allow your children to use AI?

Do you know if your children are using AI?

Did you know that AI is integral to the functions of many social media content recommendation algorithms, including YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram?  

Did you know that many messaging platforms your child may be using, like Discord and Snapchat, now have built-in AI chatbots?

Are you aware that AI such as ChatGPT can be easily accessed from any internet browser?

Are you aware that AI such as ChatGPT can be easily used to CHEAT school assignments?

Are you aware that AI applications exist that are meant to replace intimate human relationships and are available on most smartphones?

Are you teaching your children about AI and its potential dangers and misuses? 

5 POWERFUL quotes from Eisenhower's farewell address that still ring true

In Glenn's latest TV special, he mentioned a warning from President Eisenhower's Farewell Address about the dangers of the Military Industrial Complex and its tentacles stretch into every town and every industry across the country. As it turns out, Ike's farewell address was full of the wisdom and foresight of a man who had served in both World Wars and spent his entire life in service to his country.

Here are 5 powerful quotes from Eisenhower's farewell address:

Eisenhower seemed to predict the rise of the internet and social media, which has had the effect of making the world smaller. Unfortunately, Ike's warning was not heeded as "a community of dreadful fear and hate" summarizes social media pretty well. 

Down the long lane of the history yet to be written, America knows that this world of ours, ever growing smaller, must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect.

Eisenhower recommended that America's strength be used as a tool to forge diplomatic peace and that our strength should instill confidence in weaker nations' negotiations instead of fear.

The weakest must come to the conference table with the same confidence as do we, protected as we are by our moral, economic, and military strength.

Eisenhower predicted the rise of a "scientific-technological elite" and warned of the danger of these elites holding power and influence over government policy.

In holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

Eisenhower stressed the importance of diplomacy for a nation as strong as America, whose military strength not only enables more diplomatic solutions but also brings the temptation of fast, "easy" resolutions. 

Together, we must learn how to compose differences, not with arms, but with intellect and decent purpose.

Earlier in the speech, Eisenhower acknowledged the modern need for a ready and prepared military. However, he warns that this new military-industrial complex has the potential to exert its influence upon other sectors of the government, an influence that, by nature, seeks war. 

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.

It’s no secret that Glenn has a less-than-optimistic view of emerging AI and when you look at the horrifying new technologies that utilize the power of AI it’s hard not to agree.

Here’s a look at 7 new AI technologies that will HORRIFY you:

AI Brainwave Monitoring

Earlier this year during the World Economic Forum's annual meeting, Nita Robinson, a professor of law and philosophy at Duke, presented a video that depicted a “hypothetical” situation where a person's brainwaves are monitored by their earbuds, which have the ability to record brainwaves, decode them with AI, and then send brain reports to their boss and are accessible by government agencies. When the video ends, Robinson makes the terrifying announcement that this AI technology already exists! It's just a matter of time before it's implemented.

AI Voice Cloning

Last month, Glenn covered a terrifying story involving a scammer who created an AI clone of a child's voice in order to scam money out of her terrified parents. While this might sound advanced, a quick Google search reveals that this technology is remarkably accessible and is easily able to replicate the voice of anyone. Imagine the havoc that could be inflicted on your life with an AI clone of your voice.

Like something out of Star Trek, a team of researchers at the University of Texas at Austin developed a new AI that is able to decode brain activity and produce a transcript of a person's thoughts with reasonable accuracy, all without the need for implants or other invasive measures. While the researchers assure us that the technology has major limitations, including the need to train this AI extensively on each subject's brain, it’s only a matter of time before the AI is able to overcome these limitations, and it may be sooner than we would like…

Snapchat's new AI “Friend”

In April the popular social media messaging app Snapchat released a controversial new feature known as “My AI”—an AI chatbot powered by ChatGPT. The new feature acts much like other chatbots. It can answer questions, converse with the user, and offer recommendations. However, unlike other chatbots, it is integrated in such a way that it can be difficult to distinguish from a human user, complete with a customizable avatar and name. Many parents are worried that the friendly appearance of “My AI” will make it hard for their teens to differentiate the bot from a real human. Moreover, the only way to remove the bot is by paying for Snapchat’s premium service, giving parents little recourse for protecting their children.

AI "Big Brother"

In a recent TED talk, former Apple Designer Imran Chaudhri introduced the concept for a new wearable AI device connected to a camera and microphone, enabling the AI to hear and see everything you do. Chaudhri assures us that the device is “privacy-first and safe,” but how safe would you feel with an all-seeing AI accompanying you all day every day?

AI Meddling with Elections

One terrifying potential use for AI could be meddling with elections. The last few years have seen a decline in faith in our elections, and the emergence of AI will only serve to muddy the waters. As previously mentioned, AI voice clones are here and have been proven to have the ability to create compelling facsimiles of political figures. Combined with AI image technology the threat of an AI-generated scandal is high.

If you want to learn more about AI interference with elections you can watch this clip from the Glenn Beck Program.

AI Dating

Another disturbing development is the creation of “Dating AIs”—AI chatbots designed as a replacement for a boyfriend or girlfriend. There is already a variety of options available with prices ranging from free all the way up to $1 a minute, like some sort of dystopian "call girl." There are already reports of people developing genuine emotional attachments to these bots and others who have married or have tried to marry their artificial lovers.
