PHOTOS: 3D printing changed this dog's life, and the results are just adorable

It wasn't that long ago that Glenn was espousing the benefits of 3D printers. In fact, he was so excited about it that he bought one for the office in Dallas. And while much of the conversation at the time centered around the 3D printing of guns, there are some much more benign (and yes, much cuter) ways the technology is being applied.

Take this story making it's way up Reddit's "Uplifting News" subreddit, about TurboRoo, a chihuahua who was born without its front legs.

After he was born, the breeders knew he would need special care. TurboRoo had a genetic disorder that prevented his front legs from developing, and he wasn't able to get through the other dogs in order to reach the food. He was surrendered to The Downtown Veterinarian in Indianapolis, IN, where the staff quickly rallied around finding a way to give the dog a high quality life.

"A small dog can do well with a cart," said Practice Manager Amy Birk "So, unless he had another medical condition, there was no way we were putting him to sleep."

TurboRoo spent his days at veterinary practice, and his nights at the home of vet technician Ashley Looper. After a few weeks, he was at full strength and ready to start moving.

But how?

Since dogs can't be fitted for carts until they are six months old, the team at The Downtown Veterinarian got creative and assembled a temporary cart out of a ferret harness and a deconstructed Fisher-Price helicopter.

But they needed a long-term solution. The clinic organized a fundraising drive for TurboRoo, which attracted the attention of Mark Deadrick, mechanical engineer and president of 3dyn, "a high-tech specialty fabrication shop".

According to the tech website Gajitz:

Deadrick saw a challenge in the little chihuahua’s situation and decided to design a custom mobility solution for him. He used a 3D rendering program to design a small wheeled cart, then printed it out on a Makerbot 3D printer. He attached some inline skate wheels to the cart and TurboRoo’s new ride was ready to go.

TubroRoo doesn't just have a new set high tech wheels, he also found a new home. Ashley Looper, the technician who was taking him home every night as he built up his strength, adopted the dog. Meanwhile, the money raised in the search of permanent solution for his cart is going towards helping other animals with disabilities.

TurboRoo also has his own Twitter account, which you can follow to get updates on the adorable pup.

Now, isn't that a great example of new technology making the world a better place? Imagine what it can do in your community.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
