Our technology knows everything about us

Most of us are always excited to have the latest and greatest piece of technology, whether it be a new iPhone, or a new app that makes your life easier. It is amazing how technology is growing and expanding from what it was 20-30 years ago. Pat and Stu took some time on radio, with the help of Jeffy, to discuss some new technology that will be upon us faster than you think!

Remember having to map out your route before a trip, because there was no GPS? Or printing out those 5 pages of step by step directions from Mapquest? How many young people can figure out how to read a map to get from point A to point B anymore? Even Pat relies on GPS technology today. He said on-air this morning concerning his use of GPS technology,"if I need to get to a place that I'm not--never been to, I have to use GPS, because--but with other cities that I have lived in, I learned the city pretty darn well."

If the use of GPS technology as an example, look at how far we have come from using basic print out maps, to having satellites pinpointing you location. Stu expanded upon the subject, discussing new apps that send warnings to others driving your route. Google is one of the leading companies working on this technology where they use Android phones to see if people are slowing down their speed limit. Stu raised the key question, when you purchase that phone, "Do people who have Android phones, though, realize that type of monitoring is going on?"

It appears that technology is not going backwards anytime soon, with more and more privacy being handed over in the name of "making your life easier." See Pat, Stu and Jeffy discuss a new program coming out from Spotify, called Nestify.

Rough Transcript Below:

JEFFY: My wife just put an app on her phone for hiking, because she's the only one that exercises in the family. It is exactly where you walk, how fast you walk, gives you a map, satellite map of where you walk, everything, man. They know exactly where you are at.

STU: The app people.

JEFFY: Them.

PAT: You don't want the app people police -- they are brutal.

JEFFY: Thought TSA was bad?

PAT: Don't try the app people police.

STU: This is -- every company is going through this now. The ones that are best at it will survive, but they are also the most invasive. There's a new product coming out from Spotify, the music streaming service called Nestify, I guess it is called. I read a review of how it works. Typically, you like -- you have a program where you are listening to songs, you could click like or unlike or five stars or one star. They are getting to the point now where they store and listen to every song you have ever listened to, through Spotify. They know how long you have listened to them. Like if you get 20 seconds in and skip it, they know how you listen to them, they know how you group the songs. You think like the example the author used was he listened to Hooked On a Feeling, because of the trailer to Guardians of the Galaxy, so it was like his most listened to song. Like well, typically a music service would say okay, he loves this song, we are going to play more Blue Suede songs. Well, he doesn't like any other Blue Suede songs. I don't know if there is another Blue Suede song. I could be wrong on that. So what they were able, just by analyzing this guy's data, was to realize he likes certain songs -- it could tell when you like a song, but you don't like the artist. It could tell when you like songs from a typical genre --

PAT: Pandora doesn't do that.

STU: It can tell -- his most played songs were like some classical artist. And it was like London symphony or whatever, but the reason for that, he listens to a generic play list when he works, but you actually don't like that music. It is just mood music in the background. So it won't pick those songs, even though they are your most listened to, because it realizes, okay, this is something you do only at this time. If you go to the gym and you listen to techno music, because you want to get pumped up, they will realize this is the time of day you are normally at the gym. We will suggest techno music. It's that advanced.

PAT: Is it already out?

STU: No. This was the first demo of it.

PAT: That will revolutionize things again.

STU: All this keeps coming, the amount of data they have on you.

PAT: They know when you get to the gym.

STU: And the GPS location, to know when you are inside the gym.

JEFFY: And Netflix is laying the groundwork for that, because you watched. So you realize hey, recently watched, so you are able to look at --

STU: Is it -- one of the series they did. I think "House of Cards". So "House of Cards", it was a series in another country first, right? So the original "House of Cards", Netflix realized the people who watched the original "House of Cards" series also watched a lot of Kevin spacy movies, so they went to Kevin spacy and pitched him "House of Cards", knowing people that likes A already liked B, so they will love C.

JEFFY: A lot of people thought it was crazy.

STU: They paid him a fortune for that thing.

PAT: I think they said that number before and it was wrong, but $125 million or something, $150 million. It was a lot.

STU: Now that are on season 3?

JEFFY: Just released season 3.

PAT: But look at what they can do?

STU: This is the conflict with technology. I think -- and talk radio, we are looking at things differently than most people. We are looking at what is the ramification for the country in the future. What is the privacy concern, what is --

PAT: Most people are just thinking this is convenient. I love this. I want this. First, yes, you want -- it is music that you like and you want it to sort out the crap that you don't. You want it to understand that. And then the traffic thing, when it's telling you how fast the car is ahead of you -- so you could avoid that area. What is the alternative? If you want really good traffic, go to traffic and weather together, every nine minutes on the 4's. Coming up in just a few minutes and we will play some Carpenters for you too.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
