IBM exec: Get ready to have your biometrics tracked 24/7

Is the singularity even closer than we think? While Glenn was once again out today because of a family emergency, Pat and Stu dove into the potential ramifications of IBM executive Peter Waggett’s recent comments about biometric data. According to Waggett, who is a program leader at IBM's Emerging Technology Group, it’s time to stop worrying about how to prevent the collection of this data and start looking at how to better utilize it.

"We're fighting the wrong battle when we ask should we stop people being observed. That is not going to be feasible. We need to understand how to use that data better," Waggett said during a Nesta panel debate on what biometrics mean for the future of privacy. “I've been working in biometrics for 20 years, and it's reaching a tipping point where it's going to be impossible not to understand where people are and what they are doing. Everything will be monitored. It's part of the reason why when we put together the definition of biometrics it included biological and behavioral characteristics -- it can be anything."

As Waggett further explained, biometric systems are becoming “much more accurate and ubiquitous.” We are reaching a time in which it will be impossible to not be “identifiable by some kind of signal you are leaving behind. As a result, Waggett believes we are fighting the wrong battle:

“[T]rying to stop this would be fighting the wrong battle. The information is out of the bottle already -- we have to deal with the issues surrounding it now,” Waggett said. “Embrace the challenge of what we've got, embrace understanding it and focus on what we can do with that new data."

The technological advancements really are a double-edged sword. On one hand, the biometric data Waggett refers to has the ability to save lives via GPS tracking or the reading of vital signs. At the same time, the idea of constant tracking seems to be at odds with the Bill of Rights.

“Don't even worry about your Bill of Rights. That's already gone,” Pat joked. “Forget it. The fight now is: How far gone are they.”

When you consider how far technology has come in such a short period of time, Waggett’s argument makes a lot of sense. At the same time, Pat questioned the danger of being so reliant we have become.

“ It's nice. But if this ever goes away – and it might – then where are we… I mean, look how reliant we are on all of this stuff,” Pat concluded. “I was thinking about this the other day when I was at the airport on the way here. There were still a bank of five pay phones on the wall at the airport at my gate and no one using any of them ever… Why? They're obsolete… Look how far we've come and how quickly. And think about where we'd be if all of this went away. We're so reliant on all this stuff now. It's really amazing.”

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?
