Seeing Is Believing? Not So Much. With This New Tech, You Won't Be Able to Trust Your Eyes or Ears.

I want to show you what's coming and why you must work on repairing any flaws in your credibility, and do not play games with politics or anything else. I want to explain to you where we're headed.

We are already in a place where we don't trust anything, right?

If something comes out and it's about a politician, we tend to dismiss it because there's a lot of power behind that. And, you know, there are a lot of reasons people would make accusations.

People are saying now, "hey, we have to believe the accusers." No, we have to listen to the accusers. And then we have to listen to the other side, and then we have to make a decision.

Right now, we're not doing that. Somebody comes out and accuses, we believe it. And it's over. It's really dangerous.

Who do you believe? Well, if there was videotape. Well, if there was audio.

Let me give you a story. It's from Wired Magazine:

Turning a horse into a zebra is a nice stunt, but that’s not all it is. It is also a sign of the growing power of machine learning algorithms to rewrite reality.

Now, zebraification was a really big deal. Taking a video of a horse in a field that's walking by a fence. And that is the original. Then, they take this and they make it a zebra. This algorithm could take that horse and make it look like a zebra.

Sure there were little glitches here or there, but it was pretty close. And it was like, "oh, my gosh. Look at a zebra." If you weren't looking for it, you might not spot it, okay? Zebraificiation. The article continues:

Other tinkerers, for example, have used the zebrafication tool to turn shots of black bears into believable photos of pandas, apples into oranges, and cats into dogs. A Redditor used a different machine learning algorithm to edit porn videos to feature the faces of celebrities.

Now, this has just come out in the last couple of days. So now you can take a porn video, just a regular person can take a porn video and now superimpose the faces of celebrities in those videos. Now, it's still pretty crude. But that's just on the market.

You could do this. There's a new startup called Lyrebird. Machine-learning experts are synthesizing convincing audio from one-minute samples of a person's voice.

Now, do you remember? About a year ago, they were working on this, and it may have been Lyrebird. And they took audio of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, and it was pretty good. It had the tone down. But you could still tell it was a computer. This team of scientists had put this together and put it out, and it was a story and we reported on it.

This is not the same story. Now, you can go to the website and do this to your own voice.

I've just put in some lines into this, and they're crunching it now. It takes a while to crunch and synthesize my voice. I haven't heard it myself, but I know what it sounded like a year ago when a team of scientists did it. Now you can do it on an app.

Back to the story:

The engineers developing Adobe’s artificial intelligence platform, called Sensei, are infusing machine learning into a variety of groundbreaking video, photo, and audio editing tools. These projects are wildly different in origin and intent, yet they have one thing in common: They are producing artificial scenes and sounds that look stunningly close to actual footage of the physical world....

But this boom will have a dark side, too. Some AI-generated content will be used to deceive, kicking off fears of an avalanche of algorithmic fake news. Old debates about whether an image was doctored will give way to new ones about the pedigree of all kinds of content, including text. You’ll find yourself wondering, if you haven’t yet: What role did humans play, if any, in the creation of that album/TV series/clickbait article?

At this point, there is enough video of me for the best of AI, I am told, to make a video of me doing and saying anything. And they will have the mannerisms down pat. You will be able to falsify video. Now, this is at the NSA or Google (top-of-the-food-chain) level, that they're able to do those things now.

We're talking about being able to create them for pennies on the dollar in apps. In realtime.

You won't be able to trust your eyes or your ears. The article goes on:

Currently there are two ways to produce audio or video that resembles the real world. The first is to use cameras and microphones to record a moment in time, such as the original Moon landing. The second is to leverage human talent, often at great expense, to commission a facsimile. So if the Moon descent had been a hoax, a skilled film team would have had to carefully stage Neil Armstrong’s lunar gambol. Machine learning algorithms now offer a third option, by letting anyone with a modicum of technical knowledge algorithmically remix existing content to generate new material.

Now, here's why this is a problem: someone asks, "is there any evidence that something happened?"

You might reply, "well, "I have this picture." Right now, they're doing this with Donald Trump. He says, "I never met her." Well, she is at Mar-a-Lago, right next to him and his wife with a bunch of other people.

Okay. So the excuse is, well, that was just a line. I don't remember all the people that I meet and take pictures of. Okay. I agree with that.

However, if you could take that photo and you could make it so you see him with his hand down, going behind her, on her butt, if you could take that photo and show it from the other side, well, now you have something, right? And, I mean, look at the photo. Look at the photo. It's right there.

What if it was fake? Oh, yeah, right. It's fake. No one would believe it.

Now, you would say, "well, they'd be able to tell."

No, they won't. Russia. I told you this story about a year ago. Russia came out with a doctored photo of the moon landing.

It showed the astronaut in front of the Apollo. But on the Apollo 11, it had a Russian flag on the Apollo 11. It had a Russian name on the suit. A Russian flag on his shoulder. And he was planting the Russian flag on the moon.

Now, anybody could PhotoShop that. However, once you start to go in, you can do forensics on that and say, "okay, this has been Photoshopped."

Russia offered a million dollars to anyone that could prove that that was a doctored photo. They have gotten the algorithms down so well, that you can now not tell, even with forensics, whether that is real or fake.

Think of the ramifications of this. You will not be able to believe your ears. You will not be able to believe your eyes.

We are going to have to have extraordinary discipline, extraordinary patience. Extraordinary discernment. We are going to need to listen to the small, still voice to say, "this is right. This is wrong. Go here. Go there."

So the next thing you would say is, "well, we have to see your face." Well, do you have the new iPhone 10?

Face ID. It measures thirty thousand points on your face.

So it automatically makes you like a puppet. It's a virtual puppet.

And it's watching your face and expression. So if you move your eyebrows, it moves its eyebrows. It syncs with your voice. Now, think of that not as a cute, funny little bear, but as a picture of someone else. You now have Donald Trump's face on --- as an app, and you now can speak. And it will digitalize his face to move like your face.

That's where we're at. We're using it as a bear now. But very soon, you'll be able to digitalize any face and make it say things that it didn't say. You're not going to know the truth.

It's the instinctive stuff. Our eyes and our ears. "I saw it myself." We're losing that. And I think we're going to lose it in the next 18 to 24 months.

When that happens, we better know what's true inside of ourselves. We better know who our spouses are. We better know who the people are that we're with. And they better know you.

Because the world is about to change.

This article is based on the transcript from Glenn's radio program from December 14, 2017. It has been edited for length and clarity.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...

Here are 5 RIDICULOUS moments from the Davos summit

Glenn has been warning about the dangers of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, which is the WEF's goal to utilize the crises like the COVID pandemic to create a leftist Utopia. Now, these goals continue to take shape at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos. Here are five ridiculous moments from this year's summit that shed light on their ultimate vision Glenn has been warning about.

1. Ex-CNN host Brian Stelter hosts the WEF panel on "disinformation," calling for the criminalization of "hate speech" in the U.S.

The former host of Reliable Sources was fired from CNN in 2022 for raking in the network's worst ratings since 2019. CNN's CEO at the time, Chris Licht, accused Stelter of "drawing ire from conservatives" for misrepresenting the facts and propagating false narratives to demonize conservatives. Licht fired Stelter because he was a liability to CNN's attempt to "re-brand" itself as a "reliable" news source.

You would think the World Economic Forum could have found a more credible host for its "disinformation," than Brian Stelter, and it comes with little surprise Stelter's panel called for the continued censorship of conservatives.

Stelter asked his panel, "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening today in Davos?"

Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourová answered "illegal hate speech" from right-wing extremists, and then called for the criminalization of hate speech in the U.S., asserting, "I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law" within the EU.

As former Trump advisor Stephen Miller pointed out, Stelter's refusal to further challenge Jourová's call for censorship is indicative of his failed career as a journalist.

2. Al Gore warns of "rain bombs," "boiling oceans," and "xenophobia" as a result of climate change.

Gore's speech "speaks" for itself...

After asserting that we're creating an "open sewer" in the troposphere, Gore exclaimed:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!

Speaking of refugees, Gore blamed the mass migrations of people on... you guessed it... climate change! Of course this leads to "xenophobia" and "fascism," so if we hate "xenophobia" and "fascism," we need to stop climate change IMMEDIATELY. Plus the rain bombs...

Does this sound reminiscent of the "Man-Bear-Pig?"

3. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann urges for 1 million people to NOT eat meat—predicting a "meatless future."

It wouldn't be a World Economic Forum summit if bugs didn't take center stage. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann said he was inspired by his 24-year-old daughter to stop eating meat to fight climate change and urged one million people to stop eating meat to balance out jet emissions—like the jets his fellow attendees used to travel to the conference?

Here's what he said:

If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems."

Of course, finding "alternative sources of protein" means... you guessed it... BUGS. The EU is already cutting down on cattle farms and promoting the building of insect farms to initiate this "protein transition."

4. John Kerry calls Davos attendees a "select group" with an "almost extraterrestrial" plan to save the planet.

Kerry's opening speech at Davos shows the type of elitism the attendees believe about themselves. They are the "special ones" who can gather at a Swiss resort town to discuss how to "save the planet" and the "little people" who are too ignorant to have a say in the matter. His words speak for themselves:

When you start to think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we — select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives — are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet [...] I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet [...] f you say that to most people, most people think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, or whatever, and there's no relationship. But really, that's where we are.

Well, not everyone was amused...

Businessman and conservative Tim Acheson called Kerry’s words, "Liberal delusions of grandeur." Jordan Peterson also tweeted, "Who are you going to sacrifice to save the planet, @JohnKerry -- and do you think and how will you ensure that they have any say in the matter?"

5. Davos attendees traveled on more than 1,000 private jets to the conference.

Greenspace, an environmentalist research group, estimates the total emissions used by Davos attendees on their private jets while traveling to the conference is equivalent to "about 350,000 average cars."

Greenspace also found that 53 percent of all private jet trips were short-haul flights of less than 470 nautical miles that "could have easily been train trips." This comes amid the EU's push to ban short-distance flights and opt for train travel instead, which many continue to point out.

Closing thoughts

What once sounded like conspiracy theories are now taking shape amongst the global elites at Davos. As Glenn continues to shed light on the dangers of the World Economic Forum, here's how YOU can fight back against their goals that threaten our freedoms and democracy.

In honor of the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, we would like to resurrect this gem from Glenn's Instagram archive. If "the Great Reset" doesn't work out, Schwab should consider reaching out to the Bond franchise for a Plan-B career.
